Pixar animator and Academy Award–nominated director Sanjay Patel (Sanjay’s Super Team) brings to life Hinduism’s most important gods and goddesses (and one sacred stone) in fun, full-color illustrations, each accompanied by a short, lively profile. The Little Book of Hindu Deities is chock-full of monsters, demons, noble warriors, and divine divas. Find out why Ganesha has an elephant’s head (his father cut his off!); why Kali, the goddess of time, is known as the “Black One” (she’s a bit goth); and what “Hare Krishna” really means. “Throw another ingredient in the American spirituality blender. Pop culture is veering into Hinduism.”—USA Today From the Trade Paperback edition.

Die neu entdeckte Biographie von Jack Kerouac über den historischen Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama, und den Weg zur Erleuchtung. In den 50er Jahren entdeckte Jack Kerouac seine Faszination für den Buddhismus. Diese spirituelle Erweckung fand ihre literarische Form in "Lebendiger Buddha". Mit großer poetischer Ausdruckskraft erzählt er nicht nur das Leben des Siddhartha Gautama, sondern schreibt gleichzeitig eine Einführung in die buddhistische Lehre. "Lebendiger Buddha" ist das amerikanische Pendant zu Hermann Hesses "Siddhartha".

Nach dem Bestseller ›Schiffbruch mit Tiger‹ jetzt der neue große Roman von Yann Martel: ›Die Hohen Berge Portugals‹ ist ein Meisterwerk voller Weisheit und Witz. Lissabon, Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts: In einem sogenannten Automobil begibt sich der junge Tomás auf eine abenteuerliche Expedition in die Hohen Berge Portugals. Ein tragikomischer Roadtrip beginnt - der ein unvorhergesehenes Ende nehmen soll. Doch das ist erst der Anfang einer phantastischen Geschichte, die die einsame Gegend noch Jahrzehnte später umweht wie ein tragischer Zauber. In seinem neuen großen Roman verknüpft Yann Martel verschiedene Fäden eindrucksvoll zu einem literarischen Wunder: ein unglaubliches und doch absolut glaubhaftes Meisterwerk über das Leben, den Tod und die Liebe – voller Weisheit und Witz.
