Author Zadie Smith discusses her much-anticipated third novel, On Beauty. Set on both sides of the Atlantic, the novel follows the chain of events when the son of a liberal British academic family falls in love with the daughter of an American right-wing icon. A brilliant analysis of family life, the institution of marriage, and the intersection of the personal and political, the book is also very funny indeed. Interviewed by Laura Miller of salon.com. 1.

It Can't Happen Here
8,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

"The novel that foreshadowed Donald Trump's authoritarian appeal."-Salon It Can't Happen Here is the only one of Sinclair Lewis's later novels to match the power of Main Street, Babbitt, and Arrowsmith. A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, it is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler's aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press. Called "a message to thinking Americans" by the Springfield Republican when it was published in 1935, It Can't Happen Here is a shockingly prescient novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today's news. With an Introduction by Michael Meyer and an Afterword by Gary Scharnhorst

When bright, pretty 18-year-old Stephanie begins study at Stonemere Park Girls' Grammar, she finds she must adjust rapidly to the college's unexpectedly liberal attitude towards sex. And then there is the small matter of her breasts having grown by eight cup sizes practically overnight. Saucily narrated by Posey Clifford, this new audiobook version of Lesley Finch's first Stonemere Park novel brings the filthy, bouncy-bosomed boarding school adventures of Stephanie, Lowenna, Sally, and their equally busty young pals to life in a whole new way. 1.

The Possessed , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 1757min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Loosely based on sensational press reports of a Moscow student’s murder by fellow revolutionists, The Possessed depicts the destructive chaos caused by outside agitators who move into a provincial town. The enigmatic Stavrogin dominates the novel. His magnetic personality influences his tutor, the liberal intellectual poseur Stepan Verhovensky, and the teacher’s revolutionary son Pyotr, as well as other radicals. Stavrogin is portrayed as a man of strength without direction, capable of goodness and nobility. When Stavrogin loses his faith in God, however, he is seized by brutal desires he does not fully understand. Widely considered the greatest political novel ever written, The Possessed showcases Dostoevsky’s brilliant characterization, amazing insight into the human heart, and crushing criticism of the desire to manipulate the thought and behavior of others. 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Man Whose Teeth Were All Exactly Alike was written by Philip K. Dick in the winter and spring of 1960, in Point Reyes Station, California. In the sequence of Dick's work, it was written immediately after Confessions of a Crap Artist and just before The Man in the High Castle, the Hugo Award-winning science fiction novel that ushered in the next stage of Dick's career. This novel, Dick said, is about Leo Runcible, "a brilliant, civic minded liberal Jew living in a rural WASP town in Marin County, California." Runcible, a real estate agent involved in a local battle with a neighbor, finds what look like Neanderthal bones in Marin and dreams of rising real estate prices because of the publicity. But it turns out that the remains are more recent, the result of an environmental problem polluting the local water supply. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phil Gigante.

Jack Glass , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 812min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Winner of the Bsfa Award for Best Novel Jack Glass is the murderer. We know this from the start. Yet as this extraordinary novel tells the story of three murders committed by Glass, the listener will be surprised to find out that it was Glass who was the killer and how he did it. And by the end of the book, our sympathies for the killer are fully engaged. Riffing on the tropes of crime fiction (the country house murder, the locked room mystery) and imbued with the feel of golden age sci-fi, Jack Glass is another bravura performance from Roberts. Whatever games he plays with the genre, whatever questions he asks of the listener, Roberts never loses sight of the need to entertain - and Jack Glass has some wonderfully gruesome moments, is built around three gripping whodunits and comes with liberal doses of sly humour. Roberts invites us to have fun and tricks us into thinking about both crime and sci-fi via a beautifully structured novel set in a society whose depiction challenges notions of crime, punishment, power and freedom. It is an extraordinary novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elliot Chapman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/oras/000020/bk_oras_000020_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Dev is a football player at Forester University, a small liberal arts college where he and his teammates get to strut around and have their pick of the girls on Friday nights. That's as good as it gets - until he meets Lee, a fox with a quick wit and an attractive body. Problem is, Lee's not a girl. He's a gay fox, an activist who never dreamed he'd fall for a football player. As their attraction deepens into romance, it's hard enough for them to handle each other, let alone their inquisitive friends, family, and co-workers. And if school is bad, the hyper- masculine world of professional sports that awaits Dev after graduation will be a hundred times worse. Going it alone would make everything easier. If only they could stop fighting long enough to break up. Kyell Gold's fourth novel is a story of relationships, of finding oneself and learning to live with someone else, set in the contemporary fantasy world that was the setting for his acclaimed novel Waterways: joint Winner of the 2009 Rainbow Award for Best Gay Novel; Winner of the 2009 Ursa Major Award for Best Novel. 1.
