Eine junge Frau in Chicago, die vor Glück nur so strahlt. Wohin sie auch geht, Freunde und Bekannte scharen sich um sie, denn sie scheint frei von Zorn und Düsternis.

Laboratorien und Fernsehschows reissen sich um sie, ein Karussell, das sich immer schneller dreht, bis sie alles zu verlieren droht

3 dollars by Elliot Perlman( Book )
6 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in German and held by 20 libraries worldwide
At once humorous and dramatic, Three Dollars is about Eddie, an honest, compassionate man who finds himself, at the age of 38, with a wife, a child and three dollars. How did he get that way? And who is Amanda? He cared about people; he was, Amanda notwithstanding, a good husband, father and son. At any other time the world would have smiled on him. But this was the nineties and the world valued other things. Three Dollars chronicles the present breach of the social contract and its effect on a home near you. It is a brilliantly deft portrait of a man attempting to retain his humanity, his family and his sense of humour in grim and pitiless times: times of downsizing, outsourcing and privatising. It is about the legacy of Thatcherism and its effects on people and their relationships

Extremely loud & incredibly close by Jonathan Safran Foer( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in German and held by 19 libraries worldwide
A new novel by the author of Everything Is Illuminated introduces Oskar Schell, the nine-year-old son of a man killed in the World Trade Center bombing who searches the city for a lock that fits a black key his father left behind. Jonathan Safran Foer emerged as one of the most original writers of his generation with his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated. Now, with humor, tenderness, and awe, he confronts the traumas of our recent history. What he discovers is solace in that most human quality, imagination. Meet Oskar Schell, an inventor, Francophile, tambourine player, Shakespearean actor, jeweler, pacifist, correspondent with Stephen Hawking and Ringo Starr. He is nine years old. And he is on an urgent, secret search through the five boroughs of New York. His mission is to find the lock that fits a mysterious key belonging to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. An inspired innocent, Oskar is alternately endearing, exasperating, and hilarious as he careens from Central Park to Coney Island to Harlem on his search. Along the way he is always dreaming up inventions to keep those he loves safe from harm. What about a birdseed shirt to let you fly away? What if you could actually hear everyone's heartbeat? His goal is hopeful, but the past speaks a loud warning in stories of those who've lost loved ones before. As Oskar roams New York, he encounters a motley assortment of humanity who are all survivors in their own way. He befriends a 103-year-old war reporter, a tour guide who never leaves the Empire State Building, and lovers enraptured or scorned. Ultimately, Oskar ends his journey where it began, at his father's grave. But now he is accompanied by the silent stranger who has been renting the spare room of his grandmother's apartment. They are there to dig up his father's empty coffin

Seit sechzehn Jahren herrschen Takeo und Kaede gemeinsam über die Drei Länder.

Der General fordert Takeo zu einem Wettkampf heraus: Wenn er verliert, muss er nicht nur abdanken und sein Land verlassen, sondern auch in eine Heirat seiner schönen Tochter Shigeko mit Saga einwilligen. Mit seinen treusten Gefolgsleuten reist Takeo nach Miyako. Und schon bald überschlagen sich die Ereignisse, denn ein schwerer Verrat droht das zu zerstören, wofür Takeo sein Leben lang gekämpft hat
