Ein Roman wie ein Popsong: jung, poetisch, zum Verlieben schön Leo ist ein ganz normaler 16-Jähriger, der in perfekter Symbiose mit seinem iPod lebt, Fußball liebt und am liebsten auf seinem Moped durch Rom brettert. Leo ist fest davon überzeugt, Löwenkräfte zu besitzen, aber er hat einen Feind, der ihm zusetzt: die Farbe Weiß. Weiß ist die Stille, die Sehnsucht und die Einsamkeit. Rot dagegen ist die Farbe der Liebe, der Leidenschaft, des Blutes. Rot sind auch die Haare von Beatrice, die er anbetet. Und seit Leo in der Schule von diesem neuen Vertretungslehrer unterrichtet wird, der den Schülern Literatur wie Popmusik nahe bringt und den alle nur den Träumer nennen, hat er sogar seine Vorurteile gegenüber dieser Spezies über Bord geworfen. Leo nimmt also all seinen Mut zusammen und schickt Beatrice eine Verszeile aus Dantes »Vita Nova« – per sms. Dass sie ihm nicht antwortet, macht ihm schwer zu schaffen, bis der Träumer vor der Klasse steht und ihnen sagt, dass Beatrice schwer krank ist ... Große Gefühle aus Italien: Ein ganz besonderer Roman über die erste große Liebe. Eine Erinnerung an die ungeheure Wucht der Gefühle, wenn sie uns zum ersten Mal trifft. Jung, frech und poetisch erzählt, mal schonungslos ehrlich, mal scharfzüngig rotzig und dann wieder verletzlich und zart.

'Carmen won't last more than a couple of days.' Mason spat out a chunk of ice and surveyed the poor animal ruefully, then put her foot in his mouth and proceeded to bite out the ice which clustered cruelly between the toes. 'I never saw a dog with a highfalutin' name that ever was worth a rap, ' he said, as he concluded his task and shoved her aside. 'They just fade away and die under the responsibility. Did ye ever see one go wrong with a sensible name like Cassiar, Siwash, or Husky? No, sir! Take a look at Shookum here, he's-' Snap! The lean brute flashed up, the white teeth just missing Mason's throat.

The Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race, billed as the toughest in the world, crosses 1,000 miles of forbidding land between Whitehorse and Fairbanks, Alaska, and pits man, woman and dog against the nastiest that nature has to offer. In 'Racing the White Silence,' Canadian journalist Adam Killick follows the racers and their dogs for two weeks, taking readers not only into the heartland of the Yukon and Alaska, but into the minds of the extraordinary people who dare to race. Equally important to this story are the dogs - determined animals with a truly astonishing physiology that allows them to outperform racehorses. And then, there is the land - inaccessible, sparsely populated, and unforgiving. With eight pages of Killick's own photographs, 'Racing the White Silence' is a mesmerizing eye-witness account of the strength and courage of both man and animal, and a portrait of the great Canadian North.

'Everyone is a visitor in the Antarctic: no one belongs. One or two secretive lichens aside, there is no life away from the ocean; too far straying from the life support of the sea and all animal life perishes. Nature makes it abundantly plain that this is no place for humankind, and that our presence on the sterile frozen continent is a temporary pass, as unwelcome and inappropriate as on the moon.' This outstanding collection of photographs from one of New Zealand's most pre-eminent artists, Grahame Sydney, pays homage to the Antarctic landscape. At the invitation of Antarctica New Zealand, Sydney travelled to Antarctica in November-December 2003, and again in October 2006. His photographs reveal an extraordinary terrain that is solemn, sparse and poised with a magnificent stillness. Exploring a continent that appears at first glance to be devoid of colour, warmth or comfort, each image celebrates the rare flashes of astonishing beauty that can be found in the bleakest, most inhospitable region of Earth.

Die englische Bestseller-Autorin Jodi Taylor legt mit „Draußen wartet die Liebe“ einen warmherzigen Frauen-Roman vor, voller poetischer Bilder und britischem Witz. Ihre Heldin Jenny entwickelt sich in dieser charmanten Liebes-Geschichte vom schüchternen Entlein zum selbstbewussten Schwan, von einem Mädchen ohne Freunde zur glücklich verliebten Frau – eine moderne Aschenputtel-Geschichte, anrührend, liebevoll und originell. Wenn man 28 Jahre alt ist und schrecklich schüchtern, furchtbar stottert und von Onkel und Tante quasi vor der Welt versteckt wird, dann braucht es eine gehörige Portion Mut, um das Leben endlich in die eigenen Hände zu nehmen. Doch unterstützt von Thomas, dem wohl zauberhaftesten imaginären Freund der Welt, und von Russel, dem chaotischen Maler mit seinem heruntergekommenen britischen Landhaus und dem Herz voller Liebeskummer, greift Jenny schließlich mit beiden Händen nach dem, was ihr neues Leben werden wird – entschlossen, es nie wieder herzugeben. Ein Liebes-Roman so "very british", gefühlvoll und witzig wie ein Hugh-Grant-Film!

He spends his time texting, polishing soccer maneuvers, and killing time with Niko and Silvia. Until a new teacher arrives and challenges him to give voice to his dreams. And so Leo is inspired to win over the red-haired beauty Beatrice. She doesn’t know Leo exists, but he’s convinced that his dream will come true. When Leo lands in the hospital and learns that Beatrice has been admitted too, his mission to be there for her will send him on a thrilling but heartbreaking journey. He wants to help her but doesn’t know how—and his dream of love will force him to grow up fast. Having already sold over a million copies, Alessandro D’Avenia’s debut novel is considered Italy’s The Fault in Our Stars.

It has been clear for many years that the ways in which archaeology is practised have been a direct product of a particular set of social, cultural, and historical circumstances - archaeology is always carried out in the present. More recently, however, many have begun to consider how archaeological techniques might be used to reflect more directly on the contemporary world itself: how we might undertake archaeologies of, as well as in the present. This Handbook is the first comprehensive survey of an exciting and rapidly expanding sub-field and provides an authoritative overview of the newly emerging focus on the archaeology of the present and recent past. In addition to detailed archaeological case studies, it includes essays by scholars working on the relationships of different disciplines to the archaeology of the contemporary world, including anthropology, psychology, philosophy, historical geography, science and technology studies, communications and media, ethnoarchaeology, forensic archaeology, sociology, film, performance, and contemporary art. This volume seeks to explore the boundaries of an emerging sub-discipline, to develop a tool-kit of concepts and methods which are applicable to this new field, and to suggest important future trajectories for research. It makes a significant intervention by drawing together scholars working on a broad range of themes, approaches, methods, and case studies from diverse contexts in different parts of the world, which have not previously been considered collectively.
