"Dünyada sadece tek bir şey kötü yürekli bir insana karşı durabilir. O da başka bir insandır.
Ayıbımızda yatar şerefimiz. Sadece bizim ruhumuz, kötülüğe açık olan ruhumuz, onu yenmeye muktedirdir.

― Ursula K. Le Guin, En Uzak Sahil

Çağdaş Kadına ve Erkeğe Seslenen Sirenlerin Yeni Sesi Artık "Misis Kitap"

Mart 17, 2017
Öncelikle hoş geldiniz demek istiyorum Misis Kitap'a. Sis Yayıncılık'ın alt markası olarak genç ve yetişkin okura hitap etmeyi düşünen Misis Kitap, ilk kitabı Kusursuz Evcil'i tanıttı geçenlerde.
Sektöre iddialı bir giriş yapan yayınevi hem yetişkin okurun hem de genç okurun ilgisini çekecek bir eser seçmiş.

Kitabın çarpıcı bir alt metni var, ben kitabımda biraz da olsa derinlik isterim diyenler için. Yok alt metin kalsın ben kafa yoramam ona buna sadece akıcı olsun kurgusunu seveyim derseniz de tatmin edecektir okuyucuyu.

Yazarlığın yanı sıra ressam ve görsel tasarımcısı olan Kate Jarvic Birch, kitaplarının kapaklarını da kendi tasarlamış. Yazarın tasarımlarını çok beğenen yayınevi de orijinallerini kullanmaya karar vermiş. Devam kitapları da orijinal kapakla gelecek, herhangi bir değişiklik yapılmayacak.

Kusursuz Evcil'in çevirmenliğini Özden Umut Akbaş üstlenmiş. Editör koltuğunda  ise KitapAğacı'ndan tanıdığımız Fatma Aktaş'ı görüyoruz.

Yayınevinin gelecek projelerinde ise The British Science Fiction Association (Britanya Bilimkurgu Topluluğu)'a aday gösterilmiş LagoonOrwell Prize (2017), Women's Prize for Fiction (2017) Longlist için aday gösterilmiş The Power ve daha birçok eser yer alıyor.

It’s up to a famous rapper, a biologist, and a rogue soldier to handle humanity’s first contact with an alien ambassador—and prevent mass extinction—in this novel that blends magical realism with high-stakes action.
After word gets out on the Internet that aliens have landed in the waters outside of the world’s fifth most populous city, chaos ensues. Soon the military, religious leaders, thieves, and crackpots are trying to control the message on YouTube and on the streets. Meanwhile, the earth’s political superpowers are considering a preemptive nuclear launch to eradicate the intruders. All that stands between 17 million anarchic residents and death is an alien ambassador, a biologist, a rapper, a soldier, and a myth that may be the size of a giant spider, or a god revealed.

Imogen and her sister Marin have escaped their cruel mother to attend a prestigious artists’ retreat, but soon learn that living in a fairy tale requires sacrifices, be it art or love.
What would you sacrifice in the name of success? How much does an artist need to give up to create great art?
Imogen has grown up reading fairy tales about mothers who die and make way for cruel stepmothers. As a child, she used to lie in bed wishing that her life would become one of these tragic fairy tales because she couldn’t imagine how a stepmother could be worse than her mother now. As adults, Imogen and her sister Marin are accepted to an elite post-grad arts program—Imogen as a writer and Marin as a dancer. Soon enough, though, they realize that there’s more to the school than meets the eye. Imogen might be living in the fairy tale she’s dreamed about as a child, but it’s one that will pit her against Marin if she decides to escape her past to find her heart’s desire.

In The Power the world is a recognisable place: there's a rich Nigerian kid who larks around the family pool; a foster girl whose religious parents hide their true nature; a local American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But something vital has changed, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power - they can cause agonising pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world changes utterly.
This extraordinary novel by Naomi Alderman, a Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year and Granta Best of British writer, is not only a gripping story of how the world would change if power was in the hands of women but also exposes, with breath-taking daring, our contemporary world.

The Stranger Game is a dark, suspenseful, and twisty young adult novel—perfect for fans of Lauren Oliver and E. Lockhart—about fifteen-year-old Nico Walker, whose sister returns home after a four-year disappearance.
When Nico Walker's older sister mysteriously disappears, her parents, family, and friends are devastated. But Nico can never admit what she herself feels: relief at finally being free of Sarah's daily cruelties.
Then the best and worst thing happens: four years later, after dozens of false leads, Sarah is found.
But this girl is much changed from the one Nico knew. She's thin and drawn, where Sarah had been golden and athletic; timid and unsure, instead of brash and competitive; and strangest of all, sweet and kind, when she had once been mean and abusive. Sarah's retrograde amnesia has caused her to forget almost everything about her life, from small things like the plots of her favorite books and her tennis game to the more critical—where she's been the last four years and what happened at the park on the fateful day she vanished. Despite the happy ending, the dark details of that day continue to haunt Nico, and it becomes clear that more than one person knows the true story of what happened to Sarah.
