Protagonist Frank Cauldham, 16 Jahre alt, lebt mit seinem wahnsinnigen Vater in einem vereinsamten Haus im schottischen Hochland. Abseits familiärer Behütetheit entwickelt Frank seine eigene Fantasiewelt der Grausamkeiten und der Bestrafungen, eine von Ritualen und Totems bestimmte Gegenrealität. Als sein in eine geschlossene Anstalt abgeschobener Bruder ausbricht, um die Geheimnisse seiner Familie zu lüften, droht Franks Weltentwurf endgültig aus den Fugen zu geraten, hat er doch mittlerweile drei Morde begangen ... Iain Banks Debütroman Die Wespenfabrik ist eine wilde, zornige Mischung aus der "Blechtrommel" und "American Psycho". Teils psychopathologische Innenansicht eines jugendlichen Killers, teils schwarzhumorige schottische Familiengeschichte, wurde das Buch bei seinem Erscheinen 1984 gleichermaßen bejubelt und bekämpft. Wollten die konservativen Kritiker darin nur eine Gewaltorgie sehen, so erkannte ein sensibleres Publikum das erste Werk einer starken erzählerischen Stimme vom Schlage eines Alasdair Gray oder einer A. L. Kennedy.

Oft traurig und doch voller Witz und Lebensmut — eine wahre Geschichte vom Erwachsenwerden und Überleben Liz Murray, aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Eltern drogensüchtig, mit 15 obdachlos, ohne Schulausbildung. Wie schafft sie den Absprung in ein Leben mit Zukunft? Liz Murray erzählt vom Erwachsenwerden, davon, wie sie ihre Eltern verliert und sich mühevoll ein Harvard-Stipendium erarbeitet, mit einer Sprache, die — anrührend und humorvoll zugleich — alles lebendig werden lässt. Schon als kleines Kind weiß Liz Murray, was es heißt, am Existenzminimum zu leben. Armut und Hunger bestimmen den Alltag ihrer Familie. Doch obwohl die Hippie-Eltern drogenabhängig sind, erleben Liz und ihre Schwester Lisa nicht nur Elend und Leid. Im Gegenteil, ihr Vater ist ein schräger, aber liebevoller Mensch, und er bringt seinen Töchtern bei, nicht auf das Geschwätz der Leute zu hören, sondern der Welt kritisch zu begegnen. Die Momente des Glücks sind dennoch kurz. Mit 15 ist Liz obdachlos, schwänzt die Schule und zieht mit anderen Kindern, die auch nirgends hingehören, durch die Straßen. Erst als ihre Mutter an Aids stirbt, wird Liz klar, dass sie so nicht enden will. Mit großer Willenskraft und einem Durchhaltevermögen, das sie selbst erstaunt, schafft sie mit 19 ihren Highschool-Abschluss und macht ihren Weg bis an die Eliteuniversität Harvard.

Is teaching an art, rather than a science? Instead of measuring education and reducing everything to data, what if we looked at it through the lens of the arts? Sue Cowley demonstrates how teachers can become artists, sculptors, actors, dancers, musicians, playwrights, poets, designers and directors, no matter which subject or age group they happen to be teaching. The artful educator paints the air with ideas and weaves magic with words. They aren’t afraid of a little risk, or of planning and delivering lessons a little differently. Learn how to be more creative, experimental, playful and imaginative in the methods you use to manage your classroom, and in the myriad ways in which you help your students to learn. Discover what an ‘artful attitude’ to education looks like, with plenty of practical, real-life ideas for artful teaching and learning. Sue has collected inspiring examples of how colleagues in a range of settings, from early years to secondary and further education, are already using artful approaches in their classrooms. Find out how to engage with your artful side, reinvigorate your approach to teaching and inspire yourself and your children with the pure joy of learning. Getting artful can involve borrowing techniques from the arts to use in teaching, getting learners hands-on with creating artworks themselves and also engaging learners with great existing works of art, cultivating the cultural capital that comes from this in the process. A collection of suggestions designed to inspire you to take creative risks with your learners, this is a book for explorers and rebels. An ideal resource for trainees, NQTs and experienced teachers alike, The Artful Educator is for anyone looking for inventive, innovative approaches to teaching. Contents include: Part One: Artful Attitudes; Chapter 1. The Artful Philosophy; Chapter 2. Artful Attitudes to Learning; Chapter 3. Artful Attitudes to Creativity; Chapter 4.
