A man of driving ambition, the Venetian merchant Vincente Montefoschi prepares to lead a caravan on the perilous journey from Lesser Armenia to Peking, capital of the great Khan's empire. Spurred by hopes of Kubilai's conversion to Christianity, the Armenian King Hethum II lends his patronage to Montefoschi's mission, sending with him to China a supremely gifted illuminator to win the Mongol emperor to the True Faith. Here the journey east is one of extremes: extremes of climate, of terrain and of passion. Individual questsNfor glory, pleasure, love and dominationNgive rise to suspicion and hostility among the travelers. As the caravan crosses land rumored to be governed by spirits, reality yields to myth and illusion and the main characters are forced to confront their own demons or be consumed.

Summary:

"I am a liar," thought Max, dreamily forking his antipasto. "I knew lies before I knew sex, before I knew money. I am married to lies. And I shall stay married. I have made too many promises to do anything else." But Max has told too many lies, and he is beginning to lose his nerve. He thinks he has lost control -- but where? Has it happened in New York, Saint Petersburg, London, Buenos Aires, or here in Rome? And who wants to betray this charismatic gargoyle of a man with his alluring chatter and benevolent presence which compensate for his size? Max knows the answer: too many. The story of Max is told by Rachel. Max is fictitious and it is the Max trilogy which made Rachel rich until she lost everything. Now lying in bed, like Sheherazade in The Thousand and One Nights, she tells the story of Max, as well as her own story, which is also the story of Tina Faithful and le Comte de Braband: a story of love, death and betrayal. The Dream Maker is a dark comedy, rich in ambiguity, in which nothing is quite what it seems.

Summary:

The Soviet Union, 1983: If you want to get ahead, don't succeed too much. Made in Yaroslavl follows two shameless fraudsters, forerunners of the present day Russian gangsters, as they scour the Soviet Union in search of the essential ingredients of the renowned Yaroslavl pickled cucumber. They only have a very short time to convert the factory from making knitted jumpers to producing pickled cucumbers before it is inspected by the Ministry. The book shows how, under a repressive system of government, it is very hard for the average person to remain honest. It is even harder for our two heroes, who must face down the triple threat of jealous rivals, the mysterious Guild of Master Picklers and the humble pickle worm. Throughout these escapades, they keep up their spirits by inventing new ways to insult the intelligence of each other and of anyone else who will listen. Made in Yaroslavl is a brilliant satire that takes you on a rip-roaring adventure through the heart of the Soviet empire.

Summary:

Where is Paradise? How can a man get there? A life of virtue might suffice, but who wants to wait for death to claim life's rewards? Thomas Deerham, wandering war-torn Europe, has no thought of going anywhere but home. But when he falls in with a friar and a pilgrim, his plans change. The three men, none of them quite what they seem, set off on a quest that takes them beyond the known world to places only dreamt of by ancient cosmographers. In this sequel to False Ambassador, Thomas Deerham seizes his chance to escape papal service when Pius II dies at Ancona. Stealing a copy of Plato's Timaeus, and a beautiful mappamundi drawn up by the great scholar Toscanelli, he heads for England and home. Robbed in Paris, he is helped by vagabond-poet François Villon. Bitter after his exile and disgrace, François follows Thomas to England. But the Hundred Years' War is giving way the Wars of the Roses, and England is no place for friendless wanderers. By the middle of a bitter winter, after a series if failed scams, the pair face starvation. They are rescued by Christian Rosenkreutz, who has followed Thomas to get the mappamundi, which he thinks will guide him to Paradise. When François steals a bizarrely illustrated book, (now known as the Voynich Manuscript) written in a language no one can understand, new possibilities are suggested. Rosenkreutz proposes a voyage to search for the lost wisdom of Atlantis, and the three set off on travels that rival those of Mandeville and Marco Polo.

Summary:

There are lots of famous people on TV and the most famous of them all is the gorgeous, top-heavy Serena Dawlish, star of the soap Coombe Ridge Crescent. When she appears on the small screen the nation comes to a standstill and the ratings soar. Women dream of wearing her clothes; men dream of ripping them off her. Then all at once, Serena's world is shattered. Her scheming manager tells her that however famous she thinks she is she isn't quite famous enough. Worse than that, her fame isn't the right kind of fame and won't last. Even her latest breast enlargements, her keep-fit DVD and her best-selling book Gift Wrapping As A Hobby aren't enough to save her. If she has any hope of keeping her celebrity status intact she has to appear on I Gave Birth To A Celebrity, a new TV show where famous people can expose their unhappy relationships with their mothers in front of a live audience. It will give Serena's career just the boost it needs. Serena agrees to appear on the show to pursue her goal of total, permanent fame but her quest is fraught with obstacles. Her husband, the renowned Shakespearean actor James Marlborough, is about to leave her as he can no longer cope with the smell of her fake tan. Geraldine Fortescue, the producer and presenter of the show, has decided that Serena's mother is too boring to play the part of her mother. And Serena's lover, a strange but well-hung astronomer called Marlon Drayton, is going onto the show to reveal to the world that Serena is really an alien. Serena's a professional celebrity - being well-known is more important to her than anything. But how can she hope to succeed in becoming famous forever when real life keeps getting in the way?

Summary:

A cult classic that “combines the genres of travelogue, fable, dream narrative, novel and confessional into one beguiling whole” (Publishers Weekly). The hero and guiding force of this epic fantasy is an insomniac young man who, unable to sleep, guides the reader through the narrow streets of Cairo—a mysterious city full of deceit and trickery. He narrates a complex tangle of dreams and imaginings that describe an atmosphere constantly shifting between sumptuously learned experiences, erotic adventure, and dry humor. The result is a thought-provoking puzzle box of sex, philosophy, and theology, reminiscent of Italo Calvino and Umberto Eco. “Deft and lovely . . . The smooth steely grip of Irwin’s story-telling genius is a joy to read.” —The Washington Post “The Arabian Nightmare is a conceit worthy of Borges.” —The New York Times “[Irwin’s] fascination for inner perception, helped along with a delight in Scheherazadian frames and exotic lore, makes for quite a rich experience: a strangely playful construct that, like an intricate Chinese box, delights with each unexpected combination and hidden drawer.” —Kirkus Reviews

Summary:

Satan Wants Me is a novel for anyone who wants to know what it was like to be young in the 1960s ... amphetamines, weird sex and Devil-worship. '... the Lodge requires him to find a new partner, and they make him fill in the dating agency form that leads to Maud, one of the more memorable characters in recent fiction. Peter's initial contempt for Maud as a straight and boring hairdresser soon gives way to a kinky menage a trois, in which Sally eagerly dons a dog collar and frilly apron and has herself tattoed with the words 'I am Sally, the slave of Maud and Peter'. So extraordinary is Maud, in fact, that she has more than a little to do with the title of the book...... No doubt this contributes to the feel of Satan Wants Me as something to relish and curl up with, capable of inducing sensations rarely felt by people who have to read novels as work. With darkness outside and a drink to hand, I lay back on the sofa in the happy knowledge that I still had half of the book to go. Ah yes, I thought. This is the life.' Phil Baker in The Times Literary Supplement 'Irwin is a writer of immense subtlety and craftmanship, and offers us a vivid and utterly convincing portrait of life on the loopier fringes of the Sixties. Satan Wants Me is black, compulsive and very, very funny.' Christopher Hart in The Daily Telegraph 'Irwin's writing is witty and scabrous but it is also subtle in a way that keeps catching the reader out. The blend of the fantastical with the philosophical has been the defining characteristic of Irwin's fiction and in Peter's drug-drenched, satan-haunted diary, it has found its perfect expression.' Tom Holland in The New Statesman & Society 'Part of the book's fertile comedy stems from the ironic interweaving of the jargons of sociology, hippiedom and magick. It is hard to resist a pot-head mystic who hopes the Apocalypse will come on Wednesday because it will break up the week.' Tom Deveson in The Sunday Times

Summary:

It is nearly eleven years since Alan Sydney left England, but I have only recently been released from my promise of secrecy. So sacred to me is the memory of our friendship, that, even now, I shrink from the task of narrating his strange and curious history. A strong impulse, however, urges me to break silence. The village of Anstead, near which we both lived, is in Surrey, possibly the best county in England to find mixed society. Here the old-fashioned farmers, the labourers who have never travelled as far as London, and a few country squires are mingled with, and influenced by, retired London shopkeepers, merchant princes--with or without H's--and a sprinkling of literary and scientific dabblers; these last are regarded with suspicion by all, but especially by the retired Army and Navy magnates. Nobody seemed to know to which class Alan Sydney belonged, and strange to say he was admitted, chiefly, I fancy, because he was an eccentric bachelor, into all societies. As I am wealthy and have been a confirmed idler from my youth, the same privilege has been granted to me; a privilege of which, however, I am seldom inclined to take advantage.
