Wir sagen uns Dunkles
Author: Helmut Böttiger
Die Geschichte einer unmöglichen Liebe Es ist eine Liebesgeschichte, um die sich viele Legenden ranken: Ingeborg Bachmann und Paul Celan lernten sich als junge, noch unbekannte Lyriker im Frühling 1948 kennen, und ihre Beziehung, die immer wieder von Phasen des Rückzugs gezeichnet war, dauerte bis Anfang der Sechzigerjahre, als beide schon längst zu den bedeutendsten Dichtern der deutschen Nachkriegszeit zählten. Kaum jemand wusste von der Nähe der beiden, und sie hielten es auch in der Tat nie lange miteinander aus – zu unvereinbar der biografische Hintergrund, zu groß die gegenseitig zugefügten Verletzungen, zu sehr hatten sie ihr Leben der Dichtung verschrieben. Der vielfach ausgezeichnete Kritiker Helmut Böttiger legt die bislang erste umfassende Darstellung der Beziehung Bachmanns und Celans vor. Eine faszinierende psychologische Studie zweier herausragender Dichter, die gemeinsam um Worte rangen, einander brauchten und doch nicht miteinander leben konnten.
Author: Nora Roberts
The riveting novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Liar. "She stood in the deep, dark woods, breath shallow and cold prickling over her skin despite the hot, heavy air. She took a step back, then two, as the urge to run fell over her." Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father's crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can't outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes. Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she's ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up--especially the determined Xander Keaton. Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she's always secretly craved. But the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she's learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.

The Harder They Come
Author: T.C. Boyle
Publisher: Harper Collins
Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author T.C. Boyle makes his Ecco debut with a powerful, gripping novel that explores the roots of violence and anti-authoritarianism inherent in the American character. Set in contemporary Northern California, The Harder They Come explores the volatile connections between three damaged people—an aging ex-Marine and Vietnam veteran, his psychologically unstable son, and the son's paranoid, much older lover—as they careen towards an explosive confrontation. On a vacation cruise to Central America with his wife, seventy-year-old Sten Stensen unflinchingly kills a gun-wielding robber menacing a busload of senior tourists. The reluctant hero is relieved to return home to Fort Bragg, California, after the ordeal—only to find that his delusional son, Adam, has spiraled out of control. Adam has become involved with Sara Hovarty Jennings, a hardened member of the Sovereign Citizens’ Movement, right-wing anarchists who refuse to acknowledge the laws and regulations of the state, considering them to be false and non-applicable. Adam’s senior by some fifteen years, Sara becomes his protector and inamorata. As Adam's mental state fractures, he becomes increasingly schizophrenic—a breakdown that leads him to shoot two people in separate instances. On the run, he takes to the woods, spurring the biggest manhunt in California history. As he explores a father’s legacy of violence and his powerlessness in relating to his equally violent son, T. C. Boyle offers unparalleled psychological insights into the American psyche. Inspired by a true story, The Harder They Come is a devastating and indelible novel from a modern master.

On the Wings of Horses
Author: Ulrike Dietmann
Publisher: Tredition Gmbh
What if we purposefully tap the horse's ability to make us better humans? Ulrike Dietmann offers a heartwarming, empowering program for doing just that. In this book, she uses the model of the hero's journey, developed by the late author and mythologist Joseph Campbell, helping us consciously, and thereby much more efficiently, access what horses have been silently teaching riders, heroes, pioneers, leaders, and artists for millennia. Her graceful, intelligent writing is also clear and easy to understand as she makes some normally complex personal development principles surprisingly accessible. Horses are incredible teachers, but they need good translators to bring their wisdom to a wider human audience. Ulrike is a great translator of horse wisdom. Read this book, follow the activities, and answer the poignant, perceptive questions she asks, and I promise you, your life will change. You will become the hero of your own unique story, and you will realize once and for all, that, even when you wander off the main trail and get lost in the woods, you're never alone in this world.

Author: Kathy Reichs
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
In the twelfth novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan finds herself buried alive after being accused of mishandling the autopsy of a Canadian heiress. There are 206 bones in the human body. Forensic anthropologists know them intimately, and can use them to recreate every kind of violent end. Tempe wakes up to discover that she is enclosed in a kind of very small, very dark, very cold space. She is bound, hands to feet, and there’s something wrong with her ankle. Unsure of where she is, Tempe slowly begins to work out what has happened… When the body of a missing heiress was discovered, Temperance Brennan and Lieutenant Ryan accompanied the remains from Montreal to the Chicago morgue. Their trip was soon interrupted when an incriminating phone call accused Tempe of mishandling the autopsy—and the case. But before Tempe could face her accuser, the one man with information about the call died, and Tempe was left in the dark. As the facts slowly slot into place, Tempe wonders who wants her dead, or at least out of the way, and why? Pulse-pounding, electrifying, and seamlessly weaving between past and present, 206 Bones describes the incredible devastation that occurs when forensic evidence is sabotaged in the lab.
