#FoylesFive: Foreign Languages - Part Two

Our knowledgeable Languages Department have put together a great selection of books, to help share the magic of reading in every language. Here are their Dutch, Russian and Polish selections.

 

Nijntje in NederlandLeninDelfin
 

Dutch

Stuff Dutch People Like by Collen Geske
 
Stuff Dutch People Like exemplifies, questions, celebrates and pokes fun at a nation of orange-loving, guttural-sounding, element-battling, culturally-bemused folk. All in the name of fun.
 
Nijntje in Nederland by Dick Bruna
 
Nijntje travels through the Netherlands and shows what the country has to offer. The beautiful pictures of Hollandse Hoogte, combined with Miffy, give a fresh and attractive picture of the diversity of the Netherlands.
 
De Avonden by Gerard Reve
 
This story, sketched with the background of Christmas and New Year, tells the story of a 23-year-old who is in a rather awkward phase of his life. He seems to surrender to his destiny: how one should live life. Certain aspects are extremely recognizable (and confrontational), which makes the book fascinating and timeless.
 
Ik was nooit in Isfahaan by Tommy Wieringa
 
A collection of literary travel stories about the most diverse places in the world. The style of Wieringa is at his best when he can unravel stories of strange areas and people, which emerges from the stories about the most adventurous voyages.
 
De Aanslag by Harry Mulisch
 
This is the exciting and tragic story of Anton Steenwijk who, as a boy during the German occupation, loses his parents and brother after attacking a collaborating police officer at their door. Hulsing has embodied this exciting story in a quirky, expressionist and poetic way in atmospheric beautiful watercolors.
 
 
CheckhovaMoskva
 

Russian

 
This is a book that brings new life into a dead man lying in the Kremlin Mausoleum. It is a fresh, thorough and dramatically written biography of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin.
 
Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
 
A gift edition of the modern classic Master and Margarita. It is of the highest quality and completed with colourful illustrations by artist Genadii Kalinovskii.
 
Zhizn Antona Chekhova by Donald Rayfield
 
Written with ease, and at the same time academic precision, the book presents a biography of Anton Chekhov. Page after page it reveals the deep and complex personality of the classic writer.
 
 
A collection of modern short stories revolving around one central character: the city of Moscow. The stories are written by some of the most acknowledged and loved contemporary authors.
 
V Pitere zhit by Various
 
A collection of stories, dedicated to Saint Petersburg. The stories are written by some of the most loved and prominent contemporary authors.
