Anna Karenina

Anna Karenina
by Leo Tolstoy
Written during a critical period when the Russian public life was split between orthodoxy and liberalism, between cultural nationalism and the modern values of rationalism and secularism, this is arguably Tolstoy's greatest work. This modern epic, inspired by a real life incident of a mistress committing suicide, deals with some important issues like politics, love, sexuality, marriage. Anna, whose main quality is her strength of emotion, which eventually serves as the basis for her cataclysmic downfall, is contrasted with another leading character, Levin, who ultimately finds happiness through himself.

My name is Michael Sibley
by John LeCarre
This novel comprises some of the best work of an extremely gifted and perhaps under-regarded British crime novelist....What gave John Bingham his magic was something we look for in every writer, too often in vain: an absolute command of the internal landscape of his characters, acutely observed by a humane but wonderfully corrosive eye."Michael Sibley and John Prosset shared a history that dated back to their first years at boarding school, and so the news of Prosset's murder came as a great shock to his old friend -- especially because Sibley had been staying only the day before at Prosset's country house, where the body was found.When the police arrive to question him in connection with the murder, Sibley finds himself lying about his recent visit, and thus begins to reveal the true nature of a longstanding but volatile friendship, fraught with mutual deception and distrust. As he tells his version of the truth to the police -- and to the reader -- Sibley makes the first of many fateful mistakes and finds himself not only under suspicion, but a primary suspect in the investigation.Seen through the eyes of Sibley himself, My Name Is Michael Sibley is a mesmerizing account of murder, as the narrator purposefully attempts to elude the police and prove his innocence to the reader in the same breath.
