Arthur Schnitzler described Reigen, his loose series of sexual sketches, as "completely unprintable," and indeed its premiere in 1921 spurred an obscenity suit. It was only when Max Ophüls made his famous film in 1950 that the work became better known as La Ronde. Now David Hare has reset these circular scenes of love and betrayal in the present day, with a cast of two actors playing a succession of characters whose sexual lives enmesh like a daisy chain. The Blue Room is a brilliant meditation on men and women, sex and social class, actors and the theater. With deft insight about the gap between the sexes, The Blue Room takes the treacherous Freudian subject of projection and desire and reinvents it in a bittersweet landscape that is both eternal and completely up-to-date.

A new translation of Simenon's gripping novel about lives transformed by deceit and the destructive power of lust. It was all real: himself, the room, Andrée still lying on the ravaged bed. For Tony and Andrée, there are no rules when they meet in the blue room at the Hôtel des Voyageurs. Their adulterous affair is intoxicating, passionate - and dangerous. Soon it turns into a nightmare from which there can be no escape. Simenon's stylish and sensual psychological thriller weaves a story of cruelty, reckless lust and relentless guilt. 'A wondrous achievement, brief, inexorable, pared to, and agonisingly close to, the bone, and utterly compelling; in short, a true and luminous work of art.' John Banville 'A double crime, a dark provincial scandal, and a dreadful sort of triumph . . . presented with shattering power' San Francisco Chronicle 'One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequaled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories' Guardian 'A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness' Independent

To get a sense of the significance of Carlo Spinazzola’s work, it is important to see it in the context of the full breath of the artistic undertakings he applied himself to. To see him as just a poet, or musician, or a painter, is to miss the spirit that ran through all his work. He was all these things at once –his artistic output flowed naturally, taking a number of forms, always in the same spirit.His life and his work spoke the same honest message, and this honesty gave all of his endeavours a depth, commitment and truthfulness that is unmistakable. Carlo and his blues lived together, and together they created for us a powerful legacy of words, music, art and memory.Whether his inner torments instigated his creativity or were the necessary payment exacted for his gifts is a moot point, for in the end Carlo succumbed to his demons. In 2003 the blues carried him away at the age of thirty-three.By turns funny, crude and, above all, moving, The Blue Room is the work of a true artist. The poems gathered from notebooks written throughout Spinazzola’s lifetime and the artwork gathered from friends are the expressions of a young artist of our generation.

A novel about a mother-daughter relationship that will send a chill down your spine. Johanne is a young woman in her twenties who lives with her mother. When she falls in love with Ivar, she finally feels ready to leave home. The couple plan a trip to America. But the morning of her departure, Johanne wakes up to find the door locked. Can she overcome her fears? Will she shout for help? Will she climb out of her fourth floor window? Why Peirene chose to publish this book: ‘Everyone who has read Fifty Shades of Grey should read this book. Why? The Blue Room holds up a mirror to a part of the female psyche that yearns for submission. The story shows how erotic fantasies are formed by the relationship with our parents. It then delves further to analyse the struggle of women to separate from their mothers - a struggle that is rarely addressed in either literature or society.’ Meike Ziervogel ‘A masterpiece of unreliable narration.’ Nicholas Lezard, Guardian ‘A highly unusual, coolly daring psychological thriller that explores emotional pain and indifference with an unsettling detachment.’ Eileen Battersby, Irish Times ‘A work of chilling, masterly control.’ Laura Profumo, Times Literary Supplement ‘Nothing is certain, no motive is clear and no person is above suspicion in Ørstavik’s perfectly pitched, tightly stitched and captivating brain-teaser.’ Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Evening Post ‘Ørstavik treats the everyday and existential with intensity.’ Max Liu, Independent ‘Psychologically astute and deftly translated . . . A brilliant examination of a woman struggling to own her sexuality, to break free from the guilt and forge her own identity.’ Lucy Popescu, Tablet GUARDIAN PAPERBACKS OF THE YEAR 2014

A fragile peace has taken hold again in Northern Ireland in the wake of an aborted hunger strike, following the collapse of the political institutions and a renewed outbreak of violence. In the rapidly shifting political landscape a series of gruesome murders carried out by one hard-line splinter group, a loyalist faction known as the New Butchers, threatens the uneasy cessation. Circumstances throw together three men - former republican Pat Farland, barman Adam Conway and student Ally O'Loan - into confrontation with the New Butchers at the same time as they struggle with their own personal conflicts: Pat with escaping the consequences of his past and winning back Heather Lockhart, a former lover who has returned briefly from a new life in Australia; Adam with resolving his obsession with Chelsea Hynes, a former girlfriend taken to London by his cousin Enda and recruited into a lucrative career as a high class call girl; and Ally with losing a family member to a sinister sect whose worldwide influence is growing. The journey of the three leads them into a race against time for their own redemption against a backdrop of murder, deception, sex and crime.
