Wie man Deutscher wird in 50 einfachen Schritten eine Anleitung von Apfelsaftschorle bis Tschüss by Adam Fletcher( Book )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in German and held by 72 libraries worldwide
Frühstücke ausgiebig, buche deine Urlaube bis 2017, zieh dir was Vernünftiges an und gehorche dem roten Ampelmann! Deutschland ist ein herrliches Land, und Adam Fletcher macht es jedem kinderleicht, sich hier zurechtzufinden. In 50 einfachen Schritten gibt er eine gründliche Anleitung, wie man ein waschechter Deutscher wird: Pflichtlektüre für alle little foreigners wie für all diejenigen Deutschen, die ihr eigenes Land immer noch nicht so ganz verstanden haben. Wir lernen, warum die Deutschen so frei über Sex sprechen, warum sie so sehr von Spiegel Online besessen sind und warum sie alle davon träumen, nackt in einem See von Apfelsaftschorle zu schwimmen. Am Ende von Adam Fletchers Liebesbrief an Deutschland heißt es nur noch: "Alles klar!"

Miss Blackpool Roman by Nick Hornby( Book )
5 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in German and held by 34 libraries worldwide
Anfang der 60er: Barbara nimmt die Wahl zur "Miss Blackpool" nicht an, als ihr aufgeht, dass sie dann ein weiteres Jahr in diesem verschlafenen Provinzstädtchen verbringen müsste. Stattdessen zieht sie nach London, ins Herz der neu entstehenden Popkultur, um Komikerin zu werden. Was zunächst aussichtslos erscheint, wird Wirklichkeit, und die Truppe rund um die beiden Drehbuchschreiber Tony und Bill, den Produzenten Dennis sowie Schauspielkollegen Clive ersetzt Barbara fortan die Familie. Alle sind von der Idee besessen, aus ihrer Sitcom einen Riesenerfolg zu machen, was ihnen trotz großer und kleiner Katastrophen auch gelingt. Doch was passiert, wenn Schönheit und Ruhm mit der Zeit verblassen? Nick Hornby nimmt den Leser mit ins brodelnde London der 60er-Jahre, mitten hinein in die Welt der am Hungertuch nagenden Drehbuchschreiber, der überarbeiteten Regisseure, der egozentrischen Schauspieler und der vom großen Durchbruch träumenden Mädchen.

Super sad true love story : a novel by Gary Shteyngart( Book )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in German and held by 25 libraries worldwide
In a very near future -- oh, let's say next Tuesday -- a functionally illiterate America is about to collapse. But don't that tell that to poor Lenny Abramov, the thirty-nine-year-old son of an angry Russian immigrant janitor, proud author of what may well be the world's last diary, and less-proud owner of a bald spot shaped like the great state of Ohio. Despite his job at an outfit called Post-Human Services, which attempts to provide immortality for its super-rich clientèle, death is clearly stalking this cholesterol-rich morsel of a man. And why shouldn't it? Lenny's from a different century -- he totally loves books (or "printed, bound media artifacts," as they're now known), even though most of his peers find them smelly and annoying. But even more than books, Lenny loves Eunice Park, an impossibly cute and impossibly cruel twenty-four-year-old Korean American woman who just graduated from Elderbird College with a major in Images and a minor in Assertiveness. After meeting Lenny on an extended Roman holiday, blistering Eunice puts that Assertiveness minor to work, teaching our "ancient dork" effective new ways to brush his teeth and making him buy a cottony nonflammable wardrobe. But America proves less flame-resistant than Lenny's new threads. The country is crushed by a credit crisis, riots break out in New York's Central Park, the city's streets are lined with National Guard tanks on every corner, the dollar is so over, and our patient Chinese creditors may just be ready to foreclose on the whole mess. Undeterred, Lenny vows to love both Eunice and his homeland. He's going to convince his fickle new love that in a time without standards or stability, in a world where single people can determine a dating prospect's "hotness" and "sustainability" with the click of a button, in a society where the privileged may live forever but the unfortunate will die all too soon, there is still value in being a real human being

Eating animals by Jonathan Safran Foer( Book )
3 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in German and held by 22 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood-facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child's behalf-his casual questioning took on an urgency His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong. Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir and his own detective work, Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting. Marked by Foer's profound moral ferocity and unvarying generosity, as well as the vibrant style and creativity that made his previous books, Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, widely loved, Eating Animals is a celebration and a reckoning, a story about the stories we've told-and the stories we now need to tell

The mistress's daughter by A. M Homes( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in German and held by 16 libraries worldwide
An acclaimed novelist's memoir about what it means to be adopted and how all of us construct our sense of self and family. Before A.M. Homes was born, she was put up for adoption. Her birth mother was a 22-year-old single woman having an affair with a much older married man. Thirty years later, her birth parents came looking for her. Homes, renowned for the psychological accuracy and intensity of her storytelling, tells how they made contact with her, what happened next, and what she was able to reconstruct about the story of their lives. Her birth mother, a complex and lonely woman, never married or had another child, and died in 1998. Years later, Homes opened boxes of her mother's memorabilia, hoping to know her secrets, but no relief came. She then became obsessed with finding out as much as she could about all four parents and their families.--From publisher description
All the rage : stories by A. L Kennedy( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 16 libraries worldwide
"A. L. Kennedy's latest collection of stories is an investigation of "certain types of threat and the odder edges of sweet things"--Another intense and luscious feast of language from the author of The Blue Book and Paradise. "I want to describe my genuine circumstances on the occasion in question, but I can't," confesses the narrator of "Baby Blue," who finds herself "somewhere like a very big grocers. a supermarket full of sex." Kennedy hilariously explores the comic possibilities of fake genitalia before landing on a heartbreaking note. In "Takes You Home," a man tries to sell his apartment, the emptiness of the rooms. It's a journey to the interior that is both harrowing and humorous, as he considers the benefit of showing off the old kitchen rather than renovating--it "only quietly asks to be replaced and will shrug when it's knocked to pieces and hauled away and not take it personally one bit." Swarming with memory and moments of grace, All the Rage is Kennedy at her inimitable best"--
