AGEYEV, M.
Novel with Cocaine
Evanston, North Western University Press. 1991, First Thus. (ISBN: 0810109980) Paperback, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Classic Russian drug novel about cocaine addiction from the 1920s translated from the Russian by Michael Henry Heim. M. Ageyev is the nom-de-plume of a relatively obscure Russian author of the early 20th century, Marc Levi (alt. spelling Mark Levi). His best-known work, Novel With Cocaine (also translated as the Cocain Romance), was published in 1934 in the Parisian émigré publication, Numbers. Nikita Struve has alleged it to be the work of another Russian author employing a pen name, Vladimir Nabokov; this idea was debunked by Nabokov's son Dmitry in his preface to "The Enchanter". Levi's life is shrouded in mystery and conjecture. He seems to have returned to the U.S.S.R. in 1942 and spent the rest of his life in Yerevan, where he died on August 5, 1973. New.

AHMAD, OMAIR
The Storyteller's Tale
New Delhi, Penguin Books. 2008, First Edition. (ISBN: 0143063138) Paperback, 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. While Afghan warlord Ahmed Shah Abdali plunders 18th century Delhi, a wandering storyteller fleeing the carnage happens across an isolated casbah a day’s ride from the city. When the beautiful and lonely lady of the manor invites him to stay and share a story, his grief at the destruction of his glorious city spills forth in a story of two brothers, Taka and Wara, wolf and boy, a tale of love and loyalty, hurt and distrust. The storyteller is amazed when the lady, or Begum, responds with a tale of her own, of Aresh and Barab, and a friendship that transcends death. Transfixed by their storytelling duel and shocked by the discovery of forbidden love, the pair draw out their stories in order to delay the moment of their parting. Part fable, part fantasy, The Storyteller’s Tale captures the twilight of the Mughals and transports the reader to the stunning setting of an unforgettable brief encounter. Adapting ancient traditions of storytelling, skilfully weaving history and the lives of ordinary people in a landscape of war and devastation, Ahmad’s finely drawn tale draws from the great folklore traditions of One Thousand and One Nights and the Tales of Genji. New.
