Perfect for fans of Rachel Joyce's The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project and David Nicholl's US.New York Times bestseller'Warm, funny, and almost unbearably moving' Daily Mail'Rescued all those men who constantly mean to read novels but never get round to it' Spectator Books of the YearAt first sight, Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He thinks himself surrounded by idiots - neighbours who can't reverse a trailer properly, joggers, shop assistants who talk in code, and the perpetrators of the vicious coup d'etat that ousted him as Chairman of the Residents' Association. He will persist in making his daily inspection rounds of the local streets.But isn't it rare, these days, to find such old-fashioned clarity of belief and deed? Such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a lifelong dedication to making it just so?In the end, you will see, there is something about Ove that is quite irresistible...

DAKAT RAJA | Indian Historical Fiction | Bengali Novel

 330.00
Sixteenth century India. Mughal emperor Akbar is ruling Delhi and his subordinate Sulaiman Karrani is in charge of Bengal. His son-in-law, born a Vaishnav Brahmin as Rajiblochan Ray, has converted to Islam and is out for the blood of all Hindus. The tyranny unleashed by him has earned him the title of ‘Kalapahar’. But what is driving this brutality? Is it vengeance for some past scorn? Around the same time, Chaitanyadeb’s Vaishnav movement caused a ripple in society.While Kalapahar is on a rampage destroying Hindu heritage all over Bengal, he faces resistance from a force led by Raja Birhambir who is the independent guardian of Mallabhumi and is putting up a strong defense against the Pathan army of Kalapahar. After night falls, Birhambir is known as Dakat Raja. Why so? Debarati Mukhopadhyay takes us on an enthralling deep dive into our glorious and rich history. Merging facts and fiction, the author has painted an imagery so real and vivis that it transports us all back to the sixteenth century. A compelling page-turner.

Fictions (Penguin Classics)

 15.51 299.00
The most popular anthology of Jorge Luis Borges's short stories, Fictions is a wildly original and influential collection of fantastic tales, translated from the Spanish with an afterword by Andrew Hurley in Penguin Modern Classics.Jorge Luis Borges's Fictions introduced an entirely new voice into world literature. It is here that we find the astonishing accounts of 'Funes the Memorious', the man who can forget nothing; 'Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote', who recreates Miguel de Cervantes's epic word-for-word; a society run on the basis of an all-encompassing game of chance in 'The Lottery in Babylon'; the mysterious world of 'Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius' which seems to be supplanting our own ; and the 'Library of Babel', which contains every possible book in the whole universe. Here too are the philosophical detective stories and the haunting tales of Irish revolutionaries, gaucho knife fights and dreams within dreams which proved so influential (and yet impossible to imitate). This collection was eventually to bring Borges international fame; over fifty years later, it remains endlessly intriguing.Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A poet, critic and short story writer, he received numerous awards for his work including the 1961 International Publisher's Prize (shared with Samuel Beckett). He has a reasonable claim, along with Kafka and Joyce, to be one of the most influential writers of the 20th century.If you enjoyed Fictions, you might like Italo Calvino's The Complete Cosmicomics, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.'Hurley's efforts at retranslating Borges are not anything but heroic. His visions are clear, elegant, crystalline'Ilan Savans, The Times Literary Supplement'One of the most memorable artists of our age'Mario Vargas Llosa

Fracture Behavior of Biological Materials and Interfaces

 389.00
Fracture Behavior of Inhomogeneous Biological Materials and Interfaces Biological materials like bone, nacre, human tooth layers are inhomogeneous materials made up of soft collagen, and hard, hydroxyapatite (HAP) mineral arranged in such a fashion so that these materials have higher strength and toughness, the measure of crack resisting behavior in materials, at the same time, which is exclusive in nature for different class of materials available for different application areas. The interfaces in these biological materials are designed in such a fashion so that the load transfer between the constituents takes place so smoothly, therefore, become a region of strength, not susceptible to failure like in other man-made materials and composites. It is important to understand these aspects of biological materials so that they can be mimicked to the novel materials to satisfy the growing need of different industries. This work is focused on studying different layers of human tooth, and its interface for crack initiation and growth, the crack arresting behavior of the interface layer of the outer cover of human tooth, the enamel, and the inner, dentine, called dentine enamel junction. These works are done by developing a numerical model using the commercial finite element analysis tool, ABAQUS. The crack growth pattern of the enamel and the dentine has also been investigated. The role of porosity and permeability on the energy release rate which is the measure of fracture toughness has also been investigated. The key features of the book are:
  • Study on the role of shear modulus of the defect and the matrix material in which the defect is embedded on the energy release rate.
  • The role of small coating layer between the outer matrix and the inner layer on the fracture behavior, especially the stress concentrations in these different layers due to change in the elastic modulus.
  • The crack growth pattern in human enamel, the outer tooth layer.
  • The crack arresting phenomena of the interfacial, dentine enamel junction (DEJ).
  • The role of porosity and permeability on the energy release rate in the inner layer of human tooth, dentine.
