Rich attributes including vibrant color, fragrance, and sheer variety of form make flowering shrubs the most rewarding of garden plants, but this vast group with its scores of tempting plants — including abutilons, camellias, viburnums, and witch hazels — requires careful navigation. Leading expert on woody plants Jim Gardiner has distilled several decades of knowledge and experience into The Timber Press Encyclopedia of Flowering Shrubs, an incomparable pictorial reference of hardy shrubs that excel in temperate-zone gardens. This highly illustrated guide (with 2000 high-quality images) features more than 1700 plants organized alphabetically by botanical name and readily accessed using the common name index. Gardiner has chosen the best flowering shrubs for gardeners, from the Abelia, Buddleja, and Camellia to the Xanthoceras, Yucca, and Zanthoxylum. Essential horticultural notes accompany each entry and include expected height and spread after 10 years, season of flowering, preferred position, soil and pruning requirements, USDA hardiness zone rating, and more. With wise selection and care, flowering shrubs can be the making of a garden irrespective of its size, location, or the time of year. This important new book is the essential reference on the subject that no discerning horticulturist, landscape designer, or gardener should consider being without.

Eine verhängnisvolle Affäre – leidenschaftlich und schockierend offen Es ist nicht Liebe auf den ersten Blick, als Gina den Familienvater Seán Vallely bei einem Gartenfest kennenlernt. Doch dann treffen sie sich zufällig wieder, trinken zu viel, landen im Bett – und verfallen einander. So beginnt eine verhängnisvolle Affäre, die jahrelang vor den Ehepartnern geheim gehalten wird. Anfangs eine Beziehung voller Leidenschaft und Glück, hält langsam das Schweigen Einzug, Gewissensbisse, Vorwürfe, Schuld – ist es Liebe? Und darf man für diese Liebe das Seelenheil seines Kindes opfern? Anne Enright ist für die schonungslose Unerbittlichkeit bekannt, mit der sie Beziehungslügen seziert – da reicht eine Geste, ein Blick, und schon ist klar: Die Liebenden steuern in den Abgrund der Alltagsnormalität. Mit Anatomie einer Affäre ist der Irin ein würdiger Nachfolger ihres preisgekrönten Romans Das Familientreffen gelungen: schockierend offen, scharfsinnig und von einer psychologischen Präzision, die kein Entrinnen zulässt.

Die Erinnerungen von Ex-FBI-Chef James B. Comey sind aktuell, brisant und spannend wie ein Krimi. 2017 von Präsident Trump gefeuert, schreibt Comey einen fesselnden Insider-Bericht über politische Machenschaften und das von Donald Trump korrumpierte System. Ein Sachbuch wie ein Kriminalroman der Extraklasse: James Comeys brisante Erinnerungen an die vergangenen 20 Jahre im Zentrum der Macht zeigen ihn als unbeugsamen Ermittler, der gegen die Mafia, gegen CIA-Folter und NSA-Überwachung, und zuletzt im Wahlkampf 2016 gegen Hillary Clintons Umgang mit dienstlichen Emails und Donald Trumps Russland-Verbindungen vorgegangen ist. Der Weg des parteilosen New Yorker Vorzeigejuristen gleicht einer politischen Achterbahnfahrt: stellvertretender Justizminister unter George W. Bush, zum FBI-Direktor ernannt von Barack Obama und gefeuert von Donald Trump wegen angeblicher Illoyalität. Sein Buch ist ein eindrückliches Lehrstück über den aufrechten Gang in einer verantwortungslosen Regierung.
