Literarischer Roman von Frederick Dillen

As a corporate “undertaker” for a mergers and acquisitions firm in New York, Carol MacLean travels from factory to factory, firing blue-collar workers who remind her of her father and the kids she grew up with. She hates her job. But Carol has been biding her time: her boss has promised that one day, after she has paid her dues, Carol will get to run a company instead of having to bury it.

Frederick Dillen ist ein Autor von ernsthaften und dennoch humorvollen Romanen. „Carol has both the toughness and vulnerability of the old hard-nosed detectives; and, the story has the suspense of a whodunit, but in the form of a how-to-do-it.“ (Leserin), (40 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 257 Seiten – noch gratis?

Dancing to the Flute

Literarischer Roman von Manisha Jolie Amin

Abandoned as a young child, Kalu, a cheeky street kid, has carved out a life for himself in rural India. In the quiet village of Hastinapore, Kalu has also found friends: Bal, the solitary boy who tends the local buffaloes, and Malti, a gentle servant girl, who with her mistress, Ganga Ba, has watched over Kalu since he first wandered into the small town. One day, perched high in the branches of a banyan tree, Kalu chooses a leaf, rolls it tightly, and as he’s done for as long as he can remember, blows through it. His pure, simple notes dance through the air and attract a traveling healer, whose interest will change Kalu’s life forever, setting him on a path he would never have dreamt possible and testing his belief in himself and his sense of identity.

Eine Autorin, die aus Kenia stammt, schon als Kind nach Australien gekommen ist und eine Roman geschrieben hat, der Indien sehr exakt würdigt. „Though primarily an uplifting tale, one in which Kalu makes for a charismatic protagonist despite himself, Amin provides an oft-unseen glimpse of the realities of life in contemporary rural India.“ (Publishers Weekly), (14 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 322 Seiten – noch gratis?

Fantasy von D. C. Brod

Maxine Pike teaches English and folklore at a community college on Chicago’s north side where she lives with an over-sized dog and vague aspirations. Shortly after learning her archaeologist father is missing and presumed dead, she becomes custodian of the strange-colored stone he left her. Immediately she begins searching for answers: what happened to her father and what is the story behind the stone? Events are set in motion that will test her courage and faith and force her to redefine her own reality.

D. C. Brod hatte angefangen, ein Buch über Gemmologen zu schreiben, als einer der Fachmänner dieser Edelsteinkunde ihr einen Stein geschenkt hat, der sich ja nach Licht von rot nach grün wandelt. Was sie prompt zu diesem Roman inspiriert hat. „Readers who love the King Arthur stories will find this tale a special treat with so many threads of Celtic mythology running through the storyline. Each major player is a symbol of a character from Camelot including Nick who is a descendant of one of King Arthur’s knights.“ (Leser), (12 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 200 Seiten – noch gratis?

Daniel P. Depp (* 14. November 1953 in Kentucky) ist US-amerikanischer Drehbuch- und Krimi-Autor sowie Filmproduzent. Er ist der ältere Halbbruder (mütterlicherseits) des US-Filmschauspielers Johnny Depp. “The eerily believable storyline of this book twists and turns like a deranged roller coaster, shuttling the reader through an apocalyptic, decadent Hollywood landscape which could only be depicted so well by a true Insider.” (Leser) (10 Rezensionen / 4,0 Sterne), 338 Seiten – noch gratis?

The Foie Gras Wars

Sachbuch von Mark Caro

In announcing that he had stopped serving the fattened livers of force-fed ducks and geese at his world-renowned restaurant, influential chef Charlie Trotter heaved a grenade into a simmering food fight, and the Foie Gras Wars erupted. He said his morally minded menu revision was meant merely to raise consciousness, but what was he thinking when he also suggested — to Chicago Tribune reporter Mark Caro — that a rival four-star chef ’s liver be eaten as „a little treat“?

Mark Caro ist ein Reporter der Chicago Tribune und hat mit diesem Buch faszinierend das Pro und Contra von Stopfleber von Enten und Gänsen verfolgt. “Caro is an outstanding interviewer, participant-observer, researcher, and reporter. His rendering of foie gras and all sides of the duck/goose controversy is as good and fair and intelligent and interesting as food writing gets.” (Leser) (39 Rezensionen / 4,4 Sterne), 368 Seiten – noch gratis?
