'A complex portrait of two women's sexuality . . . an absolute pleasure' Alice Sebold Flannery, a writer with one well-known rather racy book to her name, is, by her own admission, in a situation she never thought she'd be: married to a man who overshadows her and defined by her primary relationships as wife and mother. When Flannery is invited to a writers' conference she sees a chance to return to a world she knew well. And then she recognizes the name of the chair of the event: Anne Arden. Suddenly Flannery is thrown back twenty years to her eighteen-year-old self and the most intense love affair of her entire life. On the other side of the world Anne is travelling for work. Recently out of a decades-long partnership, she feels adrift, unsettled. When a friend asks her to chair an event at a writers' conference she says yes and a couple of months later, on the same campus where they met and fell in love, Anne and Flannery are reunited. Though their lives have taken them in different and unexpected directions, the pull between them proves irresistible. Elegant, clever, witty and sensual, Sylvia Brownrigg's Pages for Her is a novel about love, memory and what it is to be a woman, a wife, and a mother.

New from the award–winning author of The Five Times I Met Myself. “James L. Rubart’s writing always delivers characters that echo our own lives, living in a world not too removed from our own. The Pages of Her Life is another captivating taste of who we really can be.” —David Rawlings, author of The Baggage Handler How Do You Stand Up for Yourself When It Means Losing Everything? Allison Moore is making it. Barely. The Seattle architecture firm she started with her best friend is struggling, but at least they’re free from the games played by the corporate world. She’s gotten over her divorce. And while her dad’s recent passing is tough, their relationship had never been easy. Then the bomb drops. Her dad was living a secret life and left her mom in massive debt. As Allison scrambles to help her mom find a way out, she’s given a journal, anonymously, during a visit to her favorite coffee shop. The pressure to rescue her mom mounts, and Allison pours her fears and heartache into the journal. But then the unexplainable happens. The words in the journal, her words, begin to disappear. And new ones fill the empty spaces—words that force her to look at everything she knows about herself in a new light. Ignoring those words could cost her everything . . . but so could embracing them. “I’m a slow reader, but I couldn’t put down The Pages of Her Life. This intriguing story is brimming with wonderful characters and more than a few surprises, including marvelous cameos by characters from another favorite Rubart novel. Immensely thought-provoking, this novel would make a fabulous book-club read. I can’t recommend it highly enough!” —Deborah Raney, author of A Vow to Cherish and the Chandler Sisters Novels “The Pages of Her Life is quintessential James Rubart and showcases why his novels are automatic must-reads. Rubart’s new novel explores courage and self-discovery. The right decisions are almost always hard, and Rubart’s deft hand with character and theme shine in his new novel. Highly recommended!” —Colleen Coble, USA TODAY bestselling author of the Lavender Tides series

Kate Atkinsons großer Roman über das Drama des 20. Jahrhunderts – Platz 1 der Times-Bestsellerliste. Was bleibt von einem Menschen und seinen Möglichkeiten? Zwischen den Weltkriegen erlebt Teddy Todd, geboren 1914, eine idyllische ländliche Jugend auf dem Anwesen seiner Familie nahe London. Mag sein, dass er, der charmante Naturfreund und Möchtegern-Poet, mit seiner Sandkastenliebe Nancy einst eine Tochter haben wird (die er nicht versteht und die ihn nicht versteht). Und vielleicht wird die Tochter ihm eine Enkelin schenken, die alle Enttäuschungen wettmacht. Zuvor aber kommt der Krieg ins Spiel, und Teddy Todd hat als todesmutiger Kampfpilot fast tagtäglich die Städte Hitler-Deutschlands zu bombardieren ... Ein Roman über den heroischen Alltag eines wunderbar normalen Mannes; ein Buch voll hintergründigem Witz, das sich anfühlt wie vier Generationen gelebtes Leben. „Für mich ist diese feinsinnige, dramatische und bewegende Familiensaga aus England eines der besten Bücher des Jahres.“ Brigitte

Women and the Literary World in Early Modern China, 1580-1700

Exploring the works of key women writers within their cultural, artistic and socio-political contexts, this book considers changes in the perception of women in early modern China. The sixteenth century brought rapid developments in technology, commerce and the publishing industry that saw women emerging in new roles as both consumers and producers of culture. This book examines the place of women in the cultural elite and in society more generally, reconstructing examples of particular women’s personal experiences, and retracing the changing roles of women from the late Ming to the early Qing era (1580-1700). Providing rich detail of exceptionally fine, interesting and engaging literary works, this book opens fascinating new windows onto the lives, dreams, nightmares, anxieties and desires of the authors and the world out of which they emerged.

The legendary Canadian book editor presents this “remarkable, four-decade romp through the back rooms of publishing.” —Toronto Sun Scottish-born Douglas Gibson was drawn to Canada by the writing of Stephen Leacock—and eventually made his way across the Atlantic to find a job in book publishing, where he edited a biography of none other than Leacock. But over the decades, his stellar career would lead him to work with many more of the country’s leading literary lights. This memoir shares stories of working—and playing—alongside writers including Robertson Davies, Mavis Gallant, Brian Mulroney, Val Ross, W. O. Mitchell, and many more. He reveals the projects he brainstormed for Barry Broadfoot; how he convinced future Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro to keep writing short stories; his early-morning phone call from a former prime minister; and his recollection of yanking a manuscript right out of Alistair MacLeod’s reluctant hands—which ultimately garnered MacLeod one of the world’s most prestigious prizes for fiction. Insightful and entertaining, this collection of tales goes behind the scenes and between the covers to divulge a treasure trove of literary adventures. “He makes his life in publishing sound like great fun.” —The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
