Neuerdings weiß Claire nicht mehr, welcher Schuh zu welchem Fuß gehört. Oder wie das orangefarbene Gemüse heißt, das auf dem Herd köchelt. Und manchmal geht sie im Pyjama spazieren. Sie weiß, dass das nicht normal ist. Sie ist doch erst Mitte vierzig. Aber das Leben ist zu kurz, um Trübsal zu blasen. Und so schreibt sie, noch bevor die letzte Erinnerung verblasst, all die großen und kleinen Momente der vergangenen Jahre nieder. Wohl wissend, dass diese Gedankenschnipsel schon bald das Einzige sein werden, was ihrer Familie von ihr bleibt. Ein ebenso zärtlicher wie humorvoller Roman über das Leben mit Alzheimer, über letzte Chancen, wahre Liebe und den Zauber einzelner Augenblicke.

Found in an antique store while the author was on a short vacation to Budapest, the small leather book—filled with watercolors, drawings, and messages—turned out to be a memory book. At the turn of the twentieth century, many Eastern European girls kept memory books as keepsake albums, in which to record advice and remember special events. This particular one contained evergreen truisms and aphorisms written to the the book's owner, Amálka, when she visited places that few Americans know. Driven by curiosity and concern, the author undertook a multi-year journey into the heart of Old Europe and deep into centuries of art, history, and war. The result is a personal exploration of Austria-Hungary and the countries divided up by the Peace Treaty of Trianon at the end of World War I. Here she spreads a message of love in our time and helps Amálka's story live on.

Bowling lessons with a hunchback. A bizarre first-grade teacher who hallucinates in class. A tragically innocent family blind-sided by flower power, and the salvation of soul music at a radio station straight out of a Quentin Tarantino version of The Twilight Zone. These are just a few of the luminous characters and conjurings Kris Saknussemm delivers in his kaleidoscopic Sea Monkeys—the story of his growing up in the counterculture San Francisco Bay Area and central California in the 1960s. Known for his genre-bending works Zanesville and Private Midnight, Saknussemm now gives us a highly original take on the nonfiction memoir, in which he shatters the stained glass windows of his father's church and mixes the pieces with ghost cartoons, the Cronkite contradictions of Civil Rights demonstrations, and ads for laxatives during a strange hiatus in American sanity when Sly Stone and Perry Como could both be in the Top 10. Honest, funny, and at times heartbreaking, Sea Monkeys is the no-holds-barred tale of one of our most exciting contemporary authors’ own coming of age, and the perfect follow-up to Saknussemm’s Zanesville, which Booklist hailed as “one of the most creative, edgy, and entertaining novels spawned in a decade.”
