Frédéric Beigbeder Oona ja Salinger oona
Teatud ajastul saabub teatud maades hetk, kui inimesed ootavad justkui mingit olulist ja traagilist sündmust, mis võimaldaks lahendada kõik nende probleemid. Tavaliselt nimetatakse sellist perioodi sõjaeelseks. Armumiseks ei tasu seda aega valida. 1940. aastal kohtub 21-aastane algaja kirjanik Jerry Salinger New Yorgis 15-aastase Oona O’Neilliga, kes on Ameerika kuulsaima draamakirjaniku tütar. Nende idüll algab tegelikult alles järgmisel suvel mõni kuu enne Pearl Harborit. 1942. aasta alguses kutsutakse Salinger Euroopasse sõtta ja Oona sõidab Hollywoodi õnne otsima. Nad ei abiellu kunagi ega saa ühtegi last. Kirjanik Frédéric Beigbeder on Prantsusmaal tuntud avaliku elu tegelane, kes oma kirjandussaavutuste kõrval on silma paistnud ka mitmete teiste ettevõtmistega. Ta on ajakirja Figaro följetonist ja ajakirja Lui peatoimetaja. Eesti keeles on varem ilmunud Beigbederi romaanid „Armastus kestab kolm aastat” (Varrak, 2008), millest ta on ise ka filmi teinud, ja „17,90 EUR” (Varrak, 2011).

The Truth About My Success oona
Paloma Rose is 16 years old and the star of one of the most popular TV shows ever. She has millions of fans and is the face of a hugely successful merchandising empire. But having had too much too young, Paloma is growing into a notorious brat and beginning to behave really badly: inappropriate boyfriends, drunken incidents, suggestive photos on the internet. The resulting bad publicity could mean the end of the show and with that the end of the lavish lifestyles her family – and her agent – have grown accustomed to. Then her agent bumps into 16 year old Oona Giness in a coffee shop and, struck by the resemblance, decides to switch Oona for Paloma and trick the wayward brat into going off to a boot camp in the desert which he hopes will sort her out. Oona, who lives with her depressed dad in a run-down apartment block, agrees to the deal in the hope that it’ll turn her life around. She quickly discovers that Hollywood is not for her, but Hollywood much prefers the new Paloma to the old one! And when Paloma finds out she’s been tricked, she breaks out of the camp and heads for home – and revenge.

Roger Rosenblatt—the acclaimed, award-winning essayist, memoirist, and New York Times bestselling author of Making Toast, Kayak Morning, and Lapham Rising—returns to fiction with this reflective, bittersweet tale that introduces the irrepressible aging poet Thomas Murphy—a paean to the mystery, tragedy and wonder of life. Trying his best to weasel out of an appointment with the neurologist his only child, Maire, has cornered him into, the poet Thomas Murphy—singer of the oldies, friend of the down-and-out, card sharp, raconteur, piano bar player, bon vivant, tough and honest and all-around good guy—contemplates his sunset years. Maire worries that Murph is losing his memory. Murph wonders what to do with the rest of his life. The older mind is at issue, and Murph’s jumps from fact to memory to fancy, conjuring the islands that have shaped him—Inishmaan, a rocky gumdrop off the Irish coast where he was born, and New York, his longtime home. He muses on the living, his daughter and precocious grandson William, and on the dead, his dear wife Oona, and Greenberg, his best friend. Now, into Murphy’s world comes the lovely Sarah, a blind woman less than half his age, who sees into his heart, as he sees into hers. Brought together under the most unlikely circumstance, Murph and Sarah begin in friendship and wind up in impossible possible love. An Irishman, a dreamer, a poet, Murph, like Whitman, sings lustily of himself and of everyone. Through his often-extravagant behavior and observations, both hilarious and profound, we see the world in all its strange glory, equally beautiful and ridiculous. With memory at the center of his thoughts, he contemplates its power and accuracy and meaning. Our life begins in dreams, but does not stay with them, Murph reminds us. What use shall we make of the past? Ultimately, he asks, are relationships our noblest reason for living? Behold the charming, wistful, vibrant, aging Thomas Murphy, whose story celebrates the ageless confusion that is this dreadful, gorgeous life.
