Argentinien ist ein Land, das heute den viel beschworenen Untergang der Mittelschicht erlebt. Gewalt zieht in den Alltag ein. Traditionen verlieren ihre Gültigkeit und die Gegenwart wird zur Zumutung. Mariana Enríquez schreibt über den Zerfall der Familien, erzählt von Freunden, die sich im Alltag bekriegen, von Häusern, in denen es spukt und in denen Menschen verschwinden. Sie erzählt von Mädchen, die sich selbst verbrennen, von einem Mann, der sich in den dunklen Seiten des Internets verirrt hat und für die Welt verloren ist. Enríquez’ Stimme ist ruhig, gelassen — als sei dies alles ganz normal. Und so erzeugt die Autorin eine enorme Wirkung, entwirft das Zerrbild einer Gesellschaft kurz vor dem Kollaps, einer Demokratie am Abgrund. Mariana Enríquez steht in der Erzähltradition von Borges und Cortázar und doch sind ihre Erzählungen ganz gegenwärtig. Sie gehört zu den wichtigsten Stimmen der jungen lateinamerikanischen Literatur.

»Franco ist seine eigene Spezies«, schrieb der Spiegel über Hollywoods größtes Talent. Der Schauspieler, Regisseur und Künstler debütiert nun auch als Autor: mit eindringlichen, erschütternden Geschichten aus dem Herzen einer verlorenen Generation. »Vor zehn Jahren, in meinem zweiten Jahr an der Highschool, habe ich an Halloween eine Frau getötet.« Die kalifornischen Teenager in James Francos Geschichten wachsen behütet auf, trotzdem haben sie ihre Unschuld längst verloren. Sie experimentieren mit Drogen und Sex, sie sind berauscht und gelangweilt, sie spielen mit ihrem Leben, das doch gerade erst begonnen hat. Zugleich kindlich und weise, mitleidlos und empfindsam, sind sie immer auf der Suche nach dem Erlebnis, das die Leere füllt, die Sehnsucht tötet. Sie treffen einen, diese Storys, unerwartet und tief. Unsentimental, in ihrer Reduziertheit fast klassisch, entfalten sie eine klaustrophobische, bedrohliche Atmosphäre, die sich in Momenten drastischen Humors und überraschend zarter Schönheit entlädt. "Palo Alto" ist die beeindruckende erste Probe einer neuen literarischen Stimme.

In diesem aufwändig gestalteten Buch finden sie über 100 ganz persönliche Geschichten von Künstlern, Wissenschaftlern, Umweltaktivisten, Fußballern, Politikern und Entdeckern – von großen und kleinen Helden aus der ganzen Welt und aus allen Epochen, die Grenzen überschritten haben und gegen den Strom geschwommen sind. Sie alle hatten den Mut, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen und so ihre Träume zu verwirklichen. Nach dem großen Erfolg von Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls gibt es nun endlich auch eine inspirierende Geschichtensammlung für Jungs. Autor Ben Brooks erzählt von Persönlichkeiten, die Erstaunliches erreicht und die Welt auf ihre Art ein Stück besser gemacht haben – jenseits von stereotypen Männlichkeitsbildern und Rollenklischees. Denn: Man muss sich nicht mit großen Kämpfern identifizieren, die Drachen töten und Prinzessinnen retten, um zum Helden zu werden. Dieses Buch zeigt, dass man auch als Querdenker, als sensibler oder introvertierter Junge Außergewöhnliches zu leisten vermag. Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different ist ein unvergleichliches Buch, randvoll gepackt mit Abenteuern, spannenden Geschichten und mancher Überraschung. Am wichtigsten jedoch: es bestärkt kleine und große Jungs darin, ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen. "Dieses Buch kann Leben retten. Dieses Buch kann Leben verändern.

Machen Sie in dieser neuen Anthologie Bekanntschaft mit diesen seltsamen Wesen, während Harry die dunkle Seite der Wahrheit, der Gerechtigkeit und des American Way of Life erforscht. Vom Wilden Westen bis hin zum Baseballstadion Wrigley Field – überall lauern in dieser Kurzgeschichtensammlung Menschen, Zombies, Dämonen und sogar Mitglieder der Feenhöfe, die eine Unterscheidung zwischen Freund und Feind schwierig machen. In der hier erstmals veröffentlichten Novelle "Ein Tag im Zoo" betritt Harry als Vater Neuland, während liebgewonnene Charaktere wie Molly Carpenter und Anastasia Luccio, seine einstige Schülerin und nun Wächterin des Weißen Rates, klassischere Abenteuer erleben. Diese Sammlung enthält neun erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzte Geschichten aus dem Harry-Dresden-Universum, die sowohl Fans der ersten Stunde als auch neuen Leserinnen und Lesern spannende Unterhaltung und neue Einblicke in Harrys düsteres und gleichzeitig einmalig komisches Universum bieten.
