Hopper ist Kult: 17 Stories von namhaften US-Autoren zu berühmten Gemälden des weltbekannten Malers Jedes Bild erzählt eine Geschichte. Für die Gemälde von Edward Hopper (1882 - 1967), einer Ikone der modernen amerikanischen Malerei, gilt das in besonderem Maße. Seine Porträts von Menschen, die auf rätselhafte Weise in ihre Einsamkeit versunken scheinen, lassen der Phantasie einen weiten Spielraum. Siebzehn renommierte US-Autoren haben sich inspirieren lassen, jede(r) von einem anderen Bild. Ihre Geschichten setzen dort an, wo das Gemälde als Momentaufnahme zwangsläufig aufhören muss, erzählen weiter, was verborgen in der Mimik, der Körpersprache der Figuren und in der festgehaltenen Szene zu erspüren ist. Entstanden ist eine vielschichtige, faszinierende Kollektion von Storys über die menschliche Existenz und ihre Abgründe. Realistisch, anrührend, beunruhigend - immer aber fesselnd und überraschend. Mit Geschichten von Stephen King, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver, Joyce Carol Oates, Lawrence Block u.a.

The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction

In recent years, cultural commentators have sounded the alarm about the dire state of reading in America. Americans are not reading enough, they say, or reading the right books, in the right way. In this book, Alan Jacobs argues that, contrary to the doomsayers, reading is alive and well in America. There are millions of devoted readers supporting hundreds of enormous bookstores and online booksellers. Oprah's Book Club is hugely influential, and a recent NEA survey reveals an actual uptick in the reading of literary fiction. Jacobs's interactions with his students and the readers of his own books, however, suggest that many readers lack confidence; they wonder whether they are reading well, with proper focus and attentiveness, with due discretion and discernment. Many have absorbed the puritanical message that reading is, first and foremost, good for you--the intellectual equivalent of eating your Brussels sprouts. For such people, indeed for all readers, Jacobs offers some simple, powerful, and much needed advice: read at whim, read what gives you delight, and do so without shame, whether it be Stephen King or the King James Version of the Bible. In contrast to the more methodical approach of Mortimer Adler's classic How to Read a Book (1940), Jacobs offers an insightful, accessible, and playfully irreverent guide for aspiring readers. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of approaching literary fiction, poetry, or nonfiction, and the book explores everything from the invention of silent reading, reading responsively, rereading, and reading on electronic devices. Invitingly written, with equal measures of wit and erudition, The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction will appeal to all readers, whether they be novices looking for direction or old hands seeking to recapture the pleasures of reading they first experienced as children.

Auch der Allerletzte wird es inzwischen bemerkt haben: Wir sind wir von Zombies umzingelt! Unzählige Filme und Serien handeln von ihnen, sie glotzen uns von Postern und Plakatwänden aus an und sind die beste Notlösung, wenn jemandem wieder mal kein Halloween-Kostüm einfällt. Doch wie wird man sie eigentlich wieder los? Wie tötet man Untote? Der allgemein bekannte, klassische Weg ist das Abtrennen des Kopfes vom Körper, die Zerstörung des Gehirns. Doch warum so technisch, wenn es auch kreativer geht? 101 Arten, einen Zombie zu töten ist das perfekte Geschenk für alle Zombieverrückten und Fans von Gruselgeschichten, denen "Kopf abhacken" einfach zu langweilig ist.
