When Clifford Stilton dies, his son Gene crams his carefully kept diaries into a hall cupboard – but Clifford's words have too much life in them to be ignored, and start to permeate his family's world. Clifford taught Gene about how to find rocks and fossils, and about how to kill birds and fish. Gene passes on a similar inheritance to his daughters, Bridget and Christina – they have their own ways of digging and discovering the past, keeping an account of life, watching out for the varieties of death that lie hidden. Etta their mother tells a very different story of her 1940s childhood. In a Fishbone Church spans continents and decades. From the Berlin rave scene to the Canterbury duck season, from the rural 1950s to the cosmopolitan present, these five vivid lives cohere in a deeply affecting and exhilarating novel. In a Fishbone Church, Catherine Chidgey's acclaimed debut, won the Hubert Church Award for Best First Book in the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, the Adam Award, the regional Commonwealth Prize for Best First Novel, and a Betty Trask Award in the UK, where it was also longlisted for the Orange Prize. First published in 1998, it has been a bestseller in New Zealand and has been published around the world.

Der Versuch, die Grundkenntnisse des Oz-Talk zu erlernen, sollte für jeden Besucher des fünften Kontinents Voraussetzung für diesen Abstecher sein. Den Slang Australiens prägen natürlich die Aussies selbst, und die sind vom Naturell her eher deftig, ein wenig rauh (wie ihr Land), meist aber herzlich. Gesprochen wird nach dem Motto "nur so viel wie nötig, dafür so schnell wie möglich". Böse Zungen behaupten, Aussies müssten so schnell sprechen und dabei den Mund kaum aufmachen, um sich vor lästigen Fliegen zu schützen, die, sitzen sie erst einmal zwischen den Zähnen, dem Geschmack des Bieres abträglich sind. Werden dazu noch silbenweise Wörter verschluckt, die Reste aber mit unverständlichen Kunstwörtern vermischt, dann kann die Verständigung schon schwierig werden. Aber "no worries", um sich auf den Ernstfall vorzubereiten, dafür gibt es ja dieses Buch! Was man von einer Sprache in der Schule lernt, ist eine Sache, was man wirklich spricht, eine andere. Für Reisende, die nicht nur verstanden werden möchten, sondern auch verstehen wollen, "was Sache ist", bieten die Slang-Titel der Kauderwelsch-Reihe Wörter, Sätze und Ausdrücke der Umgangssprache, die man täglich hört, aber vom Lehrer verschwiegen wurden und auch kaum im Wörterbuch zu finden sind.

From New York Times bestselling novelist Lindsey Davis comes an epic novel of first-century Rome and the Emperor Domitian, known to all of the Roman world as Master and God Set in the reign of the Emperor Domitian in first-century Rome, Master and God is Lindsey Davis's meticulously researched epic novel of the life and times surrounding the last of the Flavian dynasty of emperors. Gaius Vinius is a reluctant Praetorian Guard—the Emperor's personal guard—and a man with a disastrous marriage history. Flavia Lucilla is also in the imperial court and she is responsible not only for having created the ridiculous hairstyle worn by the imperial ladies but for also making toupees for the balding and increasingly paranoid emperor. The two of them are brought together in an unlikely manner—a devastating fire in Rome—which then leads to a lifelong friendship.Together they watch Domitian's once talented rule unravel into madness and cruelty, until the people closest to him conspire to delete him from history. As an imperial bodyguard, Vinius then faces a tough decision. Master and God is a compelling novel of the Roman Empire—from the height of power to the depths of madness—told from the perspective of two courtiers and unlikely friends who together are the witnesses to history.

Paul Rasmussen is a young ethnographer and academic recovering from prostate cancer. Broken, he retreats to the remote forests and towns of the Immitoin Valley. As an outsider, he discovers how difficult it is to know a place, let alone become a part of it. Then, a drowned man and a series of encounters with the locals force him to confront the valley�â�€�™s troubled past and his own uncertain future. As Paul turns his attention to the families displaced forty years earlier by the flooding of the valley to create a hydroelectric dam, his desire to reinvent himself runs up against the bitter emotions and mysterious connections that linger in the community in the aftermath of the flood. An original debut novel that is meditative, raw, and exuberant in tone, Aaron Shepard�â�€�™s When is a Man offers a fresh perspective on landscape and masculinity.
