By all appearances, DeBrand O’Donnell is living a fulfilling life. He has an average job, the swanky clothes, the perfect shoes, the accepting friends and a witty comeback for every occasion. He thinks his life is without fault, but in truth, his obsession with perfecting every trivial detail is merely a ruse to hide the fact his life is lacking a pulse. DeBrand begins to wake up to that fact when his girlfriend unexpectedly ends their relationship after a troublesome morning. Just as he’s coming to terms with that, he’s abducted by an alien. And not just any alien either. It’s a wisecracking, eight-foot-tall bipedal praying mantis-like creature named Bruno, and he’s not about to cut DeBrand any slack. Unlike most alien abductors, Bruno doesn’t want to probe DeBrand or study him in any way. He merely wants DeBrand to become his new emissary to Earth—for a good period of time. DeBrand wants no part of it and the more time he spends with Bruno and the current Terran emissary, Liza, the more he is presented with the fact that perhaps his pre-abduction life wasn’t so perfect after all. Maybe this is exactly what he needs to become a better-informed and more well-rounded individual—or maybe it’s all part of an elaborate plot by Bruno to colonize Earth and make Brand his footman.

Teju Cole betrachtet Kunst, wie er die Welt betrachtet: mit dem Blick eines unsystematischen Historikers, der zunächst beobachtet, beschreibt, das Offensichtliche betrachtet, um zum weniger Offensichtlichen vorzudringen, das darunter liegt. Seine Essays handeln vom Unterwegssein, von politischer Moral, von Rassismus und von dem, was ihn geistig nährt, ob Essays von Baldwin, Gedichte von Tranströmer oder neue Meister der Fotografie auf Instagram. Und immer wieder zieht er erhellende Verbindungen, von der konkreten Gegenwart zur Dichtung, von der Geschichte zur Kunst. "Vertraute Dinge, fremde Dinge" offenbart den Reichtum von Teju Coles Interessen, hier findet er zum poetischen Kern seines Denkens und Schreibens.

Ein Mädchen ohne Stimme. Ein König in Ketten. Ein Fluch, der sie vereint. Mit fünf Jahren musste Lark mit ansehen, wie ihre Mutter vor ihren Augen hingerichtet wurde. Mit dem letzten Atemzug nahm sie ihrer Tochter die Stimme und die Macht der Worte. Denn Magie ist eine Todsünde in Jeru. Dreizehn Jahre später erscheint der junge König Tiras am Hof von Larks Vater, um diesen an seine Treuepflicht im Krieg zu erinnern. Er nimmt die stumme junge Frau als Geisel mit sich. Zunächst fürchtet Lark den König, doch sie merkt schnell, dass Tiras ebenso wenig frei ist wie sie und dass die Liebe womöglich die einzige Waffe ist, die ihrer beider Ketten sprengen kann ...

“Elizabeth Blackwell is a story-telling genius. Her mesmerizing writing weaves a spell that will enchant you. While Beauty Slept breathes new life into the fairytale genre with a historical twist that will take your breath away.” —Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Princess Diaries and Heather Wells mystery series I am not the sort of person about whom stories are told. Those of humble birth suffer their heartbreaks and celebrate their triumphs unnoticed by the bards, leaving no trace in the fables of their time… And so begins Elise Dalriss’s story. When she hears her great-granddaughter recount a minstrel’s tale about a beautiful princess asleep in a tower, it pushes open a door to the past, a door Elise has long kept locked. For Elise was the companion to the real princess who slumbered—and she is the only one left who knows what actually happened so many years ago. As the memories start to unfold, Elise is plunged back into the magnificent world behind the palace walls she left behind more than a half century ago, a labyrinth where the secrets of her real father and the mysterious fate of her mother connect to an inconceivable evil. Elise has guarded these secrets for a lifetime. As only Elise understands all too well, the truth is no fairy tale.

Dorothy Lee Hale states: "I am slightly embarrassed that the title of my book is New Beginnings. This expression is used everywhere, but the idea and the title were in my mind for many years. The time is four hundred years ago and the places England and Virginia. Most of the characters have new beginnings in place or understanding. I was working at the Orlando Public Library at the time I planned this story, surrounded by many biographies of the historical characters of the time, and visited England and Jamestown more than once. Indiana University courses in European and American history, with English composition helped me greatly." She wrote the following to her nephew who edited her manuscript. "I could not have written this when I began planning. It needed my own growth in our faith. Now I want to share it with others. I tried to show our need to come to an understanding in families and with other races and nationalities. I think you and your siblings are a wonderful example, with your bonding and re-unions. I wish all families could accomplish this. What a wonderful world it would be!"

Hundreds of writers in the English-speaking world of the seventeenth-century imagined alternative ideal societies. Sometimes they did so by exploring fanciful territories, such as the world in the moon or the nations of the Antipodes; but sometimes they composed serious disquisitions about the here and now, proposing how England or its nascent colonies could be conceived of as an 'Oceana,' or a New Jerusalem. This book provides a comprehensive view of the operations of the utopian imagination in literature from 1603 to the 1660s. Appealing to social theorists, literary critics, and political and cultural historians, this volume revises prevailing notions of the languages of hope and social dreaming in the making of British modernity during a century of political and intellectual upheaval.
