Faberin ihanat minikirjat

Faberin ihanat minikirjat

Faberin pieni kirja sujahtaa kevyesti salkkuun, käsilaukkuun tai vaikka taskuun, ja sen voi noukkia kämmenelle yhtä hyvin työmatkalla kuin passijonossa. Faberin ihanat minikirjat toimivat mainiosti myös ”onnittelukortteina” (oikean kortin sijaan tai sen täydentäjänä) tai kukkakimpun kanssa annettavina. Brittikustantamon englanninkielisiä teoksia on tarjolla runsas valikoima. Aloita vaikka tutustuminen Sally Rooneyn tai Sylvia Plathin kirjoihin näistä. Lämmin suositus!

  11. Plath SylviaNidottu englanti

    'On the whole, it was easier than I had expected. Only once did I feel myself at risk. That was when the Inspector suddenly intervened. He said in a harsh voice: 'He married your wife, didn't he?
