Perfect Summer Reads with the Chill Factor - 12 July 2013

Perfect Summer Reads from Profusion Books

NOIR FROM EASTERN EUROPE from Profusion.org.uk - Perfect summer reads with the right amount of "chill" factor

Attack in the Library (Atac în bibliotecă) by George Arion, one of the classic narratives of Romanian popular fiction, was written during the dictatorship of the 1980s in the finest Noir tradition.
“I loved this book. Dry, snappy, absurdist wit... the colossal, surreal stupidity of totalitarianism.”
Patrick McGuinness - author, The Last Hundred Days - Man Booker Prize Longlist

Kill the General (Ucideți generalul) by Bogdan Hrib, an exciting and suspenseful thriller, takes you on a rollercoaster ride through the last decades in Romanian history.
"...a good read offering an insight into a country that remains mysterious to many of us."
Julian Cole - The Press, York

Anatomical Clues (Indicii anatomice) by Oana Stoica-Mujea features Iolanda, a crime-fighting heroine unique in the landscape of Romanian literature: mad, bad and dangerous to know.
“...a gripping tale, which, like Iolanda, will creep into your head and stay there.”
Mike Phillips - author, CWA Silver Dagger winner

Rimaru - Butcher of Bucharest
(Rîmaru – Măcelarul Bucureștiului) by Mike Phillips and Stejarel Olaru is a social review of Romania in the ‘70s, with a serial killer’s story as a central focus.
“... a fascinating read that frames a factual account of the crimes within their social environment, while examining their impact on the culture, and their lingering legacy in the present day.”
George Nott - Enfield INDEPENDENT

All Profusion books are available in paperback from Profusion.org.uk and
Amazon.co.uk, as well as Kindle e-books. Books are available in Romania as well, from ‘Anthony Frost’ English bookshop in Bucharest (www.anthonyfrost.ro).

Developing Narratives about Contemporary Life for Children and Young People
Traditionally, fiction for children and young people has been dominated by the telling of myths and legends. In recent years, educationalists have tried to add more recent history and debates about society to the content of children’s fiction. However this has consequences for the development of the stories. What sort of narratives are the most appropriate in modern storytelling for young people? How are they to be discovered?
