Selma Lagerlöf

“Unspeakable happiness – to live, tears forcibly roll”

The Swedish writer is known primarily as the creator of the story about Niels – a boy who traveled the world with wild geese. But the autobiographical book of her memoirs is no less like a fairy tale.

Morbakka is a manor house in the picturesque province of Värmland, where Selma and her siblings spent their childhood. There lived good wizards, such as a nanny nicknamed Big Kaysa, who took care of the girl, and unusual creatures – at least in the legends told by little Selma, her brothers and sisters aunt and grandmother. Short stories from the life of Morbacca and its inhabitants perfectly convey the atmosphere of kindness and tenderness, like the spring sun, warmth, which happens only in a very happy childhood.

“It’s life. One wins a medal, the other writes his name on it. “

The elegiac comedy in three acts, as the author himself called it, has long been widely quoted thanks to the film of the same name. It is all the more interesting to read the original and look at it with slightly different eyes.

Sparkling, bright, optimistic, kind – epithets for this play can be selected endlessly. A mood book that helps you wake up from hibernation, smile at others and believe that there is a lot of good ahead.

“She was determined to accept everything that was offered to her. From this amazing day, which fell on her like snow on her head, she will squeeze everything to the last drop. “

Miss Pettigrew, a sort of British Cinderella, is an overly prudent, slightly pretentious governess who considers herself a gray mouse. In search of work, she accidentally gets into the house of a young restless actress and finds herself in the thick of things – intrigue, novels, secular life. Against the background of all this, Pettigrew is not lost, but, on the contrary, transforms – into an ironic, smart and bright lady, well aware of the price.

Ray Bradbury (collection)

“The woman in the picture smiled mysteriously sadly, and Tom, responding to her gaze, felt his heart pounding and music sounding in his ears.”

The collection is named after one of Bradbury’s stories about love and magic, but all his stories are full of magnetism. Some are sad, others are happy, they help to feel the fullness of life, breathe the air with full breasts and think about the complex and beautiful world around us.

O. Henry (collection)

“It’s not about the road we choose; what is inside us makes us choose the path “

O. Henry’s short stories are a godsend for those who love unexpected plot twists and can’t stand when stories end badly. Almost any story is a meeting with an old friend, which leaves a good aftertaste and the desire to repeat. Hidden in each of these stories are simple but necessary meanings that love, fidelity and friendship can work real miracles.
