The Ghost Writer introduces Nathan Zuckerman in the 1950s, a budding writer infatuated with the Great Books, discovering the contradictory claims of literature and experience while an overnight guest in the secluded New England farmhouse of his idol, E.I. Lonoff. At Lonoff's, Zuckerman meets Amy Bellette, a haunting young woman of indeterminate foreign background who turns out to be a former student of Lonoff's and who may also have been his mistress. Zuckerman, with his active, youthful imagination, wonders if she could be the paradigmatic victim of Nazi persecution. If she were, it might change his life. --From publisher description

Old Possums Katzenbuch, englisch und deutsch by T. S Eliot( Book )
2 editions published in 1952 in German and English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Katzengedichte: Old Possums Katzenbuch ist eine Sammlung von Katzengedichten für Kinder und Erwachsene. T.S. Eliott schreibt über den Charakter von Katzen im Allgemeinen sowie über die Art einer jeden einzelnen. Im Buch zu finden sind unter anderem Gedichte über Grimmtiger, Rem Tem Tecker, der nur das macht, was er will und über Rumpelmauser und Rattenschreck, die in der ganzen Stadt für Unordnung sorgen. Dazu wird in den Gedichten erklärt, wie man Katzen zu begrüssen hat oder wie sie heissen. Das Buch enthält nebst den zahlreichen Gedichten viele farbige Illustrationen, welche den Inhalt der Gedichte unterstreichen. Die Texte können Anregungen für Schreibanlässe in der Schule bieten. Nicht alle sind jedoch für Kinder gut verständlich, da die Sprache eher den Erwartungen Erwachsener entspricht. Alles in allem ist Old Possums Katzenbuch aber ein gelungenes Werk, welches auch als Vorlage für das erfolgreiche Musical "Cats" diente. Ab 10 Jahren, ***, Selina Streiff
