Der Apotheker Malone, verheiratet und Vater zweier Kinder, führt ein langweiliges, kleinbürgerliches Leben, das man weder glücklich noch unglücklich nennen kann, als ihm sein Arzt eröffnet, dass er nur noch ein gutes Jahr zu leben hat.

The Reivers is a picaresque that tells of three unlikely car thieves from rural Mississippi.

The Priests' black coachman, Ned McCaslin, stows away, and the three of them are off on a heroic odyssey, for which they are all ill-equipped, that ends at Miss Reba's bordello in Memphis. From there a series of wild misadventures ensues—involving horse smuggling, trainmen, sheriffs' deputies, and jail
The short stories of Katherine Mansfield by Katherine Mansfield( Book )

15 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in German and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Her stories suggest someone writing in a different era and in a vastly different English. Her language is as transparent as clean glass, yet hovers on the edge of poetry. Although Katherine Mansfield was closely associated with D.H. Lawrence and something of a rival of Virginia Woolf, her stories suggest someone writing in a different era and in a vastly different English. Her language is as transparent as clean glass, yet hovers on the edge of poetry. Her characters are passionate men and women swaddled in English reserve -- and sometimes briefly breaking through. And her genius is to pinpoint those unacknowledged and almost imperceptible moments in which those people's relationships -- with one another and themselves -- change forever

In einer deutschen Pension by Katherine Mansfield( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 2012 in German and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Während eines Aufenthalts der jungen Katherine Mansfield in Bayern entstanden diese tiefgründigen Kurzgeschichten, mit denen die Autorin berühmt wurde. Ihre humoristische und scharfzüngige Mentalitätsanalyse der deutschen Pensionsgäste ist heute wie damals höchst amüsant und von Joe Villion farbenfroh und mit subtiler Ironie illustriert. Mit diesen Erzählungen betrat Katherine Mansfield die literarische Bühne und avancierte zur Meisterin der modernen englischen Kurzgeschichte. Die Erzählungen der Sammlung "In einer deutschen Pension"entstanden 1909, als die erst 21-jährige Katherine Mansfield für einige Monate in Deutschland lebte. Sie ist zu diesem Zeitpunkt von einem ihrer Verehrer schwanger, verheiratet war sie aber mit einem anderen, vor dem sie noch in der Hochzeitsnacht floh. Im wilhelminischen Deutschland trifft sie dann auf einen Kreis aus typischen Deutschen, die in ihrer wohlverdienten Kur das enge Korsett gesellschaftlicher Zwänge ablegen - und damit die Aufmerksamkeit der Schriftstellerin wecken. Es tummeln sich auffällig fröhliche Witwen neben verunsicherten jungen Ehefrauen, und auch der Teller voller Fleisch zur Mittagsstunde wie auch die alleingelassenen Kinder der so fürsorglichen Mütter stehen unter der Beobachtung der Autorin. Gekonnt stellt sie die Vorurteile und Stereotypen der englischen und deutschen Mentalität auf den Prüfstein. Aus eben dieser Distanz und der daraus ent stehenden Spannung zwischen den Mentalitäten zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts entstand ein Panoptikum, das durch das große stilistische Können Katherine Mansfields leise Gesellschaftskritik übt und Klischees auf die Probe stellt. Im ausführlichen Anhang befindet sich ein detailreicher biografischer Essay von Elisabeth Schnack, der das Leben und Schreiben der Schriftstellerin zusammenfasst und in einen größeren Zusammenhang stellt. Joe Villion wurde 1981 in München geboren, wuchs in Italien und Griechenland auf und lebt seit 2001 in Berlin. Dort studierte sie Illustration an der Universität der Künste. 2010 gewann sie den "Gestalterpreis"der Büchergilde für "Zazie in der Metro", für das sie 2011 ebenfalls das Ehrendiplom der Stif tung Buchkunst für ausgezeichnete buchkünstlerische Leistungen erhielt
