‘Kay gives hugely of her talent; pours it onto the page . . . These stories charm, move and entertain’ Guardian This fierce, funny and compassionate collection explores every facet of that most overwhelming and complicated of human emotions: love. With winning directness, Jackie Kay captures her characters’ greatest joy and greatest vulnerability, exposing the moments of tenderness, of shock, of bravery and stupidity that accompany the search for love, the discovery of love and, most of all, love’s loss. ‘Jackie Kay’s characters sing from the page’ Daily Telegraph ‘At the heart of it is a faith in stories themselves: a belief that the most desolate history can be lent coherence if you tell it right’ TLS ‘Kay’s humour and optimism are transcendent’ Sunday Herald

Der erste Teil des Roman-Duos NUR EIN TAG ... UND EIN GANZES JAHR der Bestseller-Autorin Gayle Forman. Wenn du einem Menschen begegnet bist, der dein Herz geöffnet hat, wirst du alles dafür tun, ihn wiederzufinden. Allysons Leben ist genau wie ihr Koffer – überlegt, geplant und ordentlich gepackt. Doch am letzten Tag ihrer dreiwöchigen Europatour lernt sie Willem kennen. Als freier, ungebundener Schauspieler ist er all das, was die 18jährige Allyson nicht ist, und als er sie einlädt, mit ihm nach Paris zu kommen, trifft sie spontan eine für sie untypische Entscheidung. Sie ändert ihren Plan und geht mit ihm. Allyson erlebt einen Tag voller Abenteuer und Romantik, Freiheit und Nähe – bis Willem am nächsten Morgen nicht mehr da ist. Als sie sich auf den Weg macht, ihn zu suchen, findet sie sich selbst. Ein überwältigendes Buch über Liebe, Identität und die Zufälle des Schicksals. Er sieht mich an und ich spüre, wie ein Flattern meinen Körper erfasst. Werde ich das wirklich tun? „Also? Was sagst du? Möchtest du für einen Tag nach Paris fahren?“ Das ist total verrückt. Ich kenne ihn nicht mal. Und ich könnte erwischt werden. Und wieviel kann man an einem Tag von Paris sehen? Es könnte in so vielerlei Hinsicht katastrophal schieflaufen. All das ist richtig. Ich weiß. Aber das ändert nichts daran, dass ich fahren möchte. Anstatt nein zu sagen, probiere ich diesmal etwas anderes aus. Ich sage ja.

In his view it was possible to determine that that person was very goal-seeking. He stared dully at the ceiling at one point, as if the roof would fall at that moment and he would be suddenly dazzled by the flux of sunrays. But that did not happen. The room was dark, wet, damp. It was difficult to breathe. Almost with every breath he screamed of pain as if he was hammered a nail. He could not breathe properly. That man was constantly coughing. Lump came to his throat. He suffered from pain because he had not been eating and drinking for the second day. He was in the mud and slime, which that cell was filled. There was almost no clothes left on him... That bunch of rags could be only called clothes. His hair was unwashed for a couple of months, he was constantly scratching - he had lice."... Read more. Just download it & enjoy! )

Ambroise Tzenas has visited over a dozen major sites of dark tourism across the world - from Cambodia to Rwanda, Lebanon to Lithuania, Ukraine to the United States. These are sites developed for tourism and linked to death, assassination, incarceration, mass killing and tragedy. Yet dark tourism is not a new phenomenon and similar sites have attracted human interest for many years. From the gladiatorial combats of ancient Rome through to attendance at public executions in London of the 1600s, it seems that death and disaster have maintained a lasting appeal.

This morning I witnessed a scene that very few have seen or recognized. It happened at 5.30 AM here in Phoenix, AZ. The moon was ascending and the horizon was light orange as the sun was coming up. It reminded me that life is like that, always evolving. Yes, my hell was here, but now I have my own heaven right here on earth because, I am an over-comer. All that I’ve been through, God was on my side. He never left me or forsook me. I praise Him daily for His goodness and mercy. This book is my testimony that all things are possible with God on your side who can be against you.

A mysterious young woman calling herself Jane turns up in a small New England town. She claims a fragmentary memory of growing up in this place, yet she has never been here before in her life. Searching for an explanation, she arrives at the unthinkable: that she is somehow connected to another Jane who disappeared from the town in 1853. Meanwhile, strange and alarming things begin happening to some of Graynier's inhabitants, as if they, too, are linked with the other Jane's disappearance more than 150 years ago. A thunderhead of karmic justice gathers over the little village as Jane's memories reawaken piece by piece. They carry her back in time to a long-buried secret, while the townspeople hurtle forward to a horrific event when past and present fatally collide.

They say his clothes blend into the background, no matter where he stands. They say a lot of things about the Schwa, but one thing’s for sure: no one ever noticed him. Except me. My name is Antsy Bonano, and I was the one who realized the Schwa was “functionally invisible” and used him to make some big bucks. But I was also the one who caused him more grief than a friend should. So if you all just shut up and listen, I’ll tell you everything there is to know about the Schwa, from how he got his name, to what really happened with his mom. I’ll spill everything. Unless, of course, “the Schwa Effect” wipes him out of my brain before I’m done….

"Nancy's candor and willingness to share her family's profound story is a gift. With painstaking detail, she bravely opens an intimate window into the heart wrenching roller coaster of hope and loss. I was enraged, devastated, and moved with every turn of the page. Hannah Was Here is an alarm that must be heard.” ~Brian Aubert- Silversun Pickups "What Nancy has accomplished is nothing short of awe inspiring. There are so many lessons to learn from Hannah's story, with beautiful honesty through Nancy's eyes. Nancy brings recognition to the world and perhaps more importantly the medical community of "DRESS," the undisclosed and potentially lethal complications of pharmaceutical products and policy and the need to stand up and have a voice. How could one little girl touch the lives of so many? Hannah's fight, both in life and death, carried on by her inspiring family will empower hundreds of thousands to choose the beauty of morality, courage, and love. Quite simply, Hannah has changed my life. Thank you.” ~Jamie Taylor, MD “Hannah’s story is deeply moving and shocking. To this day, Hannah is accompanying me. How was a single drug given for such benign skin lesions allowed to strike her down and cut short her promising life? This tragic story is urging us to better understand DRESS, and from now on drugs associated with DRESS should be avoided when unjustified.” ~Dr. Vincent Descamps- French expert on DRESS "HANNAH WAS HERE is a tribute like none other I have ever read. Nancy is a one woman army who holds the strength of a country with the touch of a mother's heart. This book should be read by all, young and old, and used to educate the world. Thank you Nancy, from the bottom of my heart." Evan Lesser, Film Producer. “I've never read anything so quick. I'm a slow reader by trade--which makes being a paper grader hard work--so, I know what I'm saying. There were parts that were impossible for me to read. And there were times when I had to wipe through tears to see. You've poured your soul into this writing-and the work you're doing now to inform parents and kids of the dangers of prescriptions and how they're prescribed is such a fitting tribute. I'm just so incredibly moved by what you've written here. Thank you so much” ~Mark Storer English Teacher and Freelance Writer I knew Hannah as the principal of the school that ran her Bully Buddy program and from living next door to her. Still, none of that prepared me for this raw look at the emotional upheaval the entire family experienced. It’s unbelievable reading all that Hannah’s young mind and body endured. Nancy leaves out nothing, telling her families journey and how they came to be enmeshed in a united battle for Hannah’s life. The grisly details of hospital life are intertwined with family history, emails, and journal entries from a remarkable young lady. I knew it was to be a cautionary tale, important for families to read before deciding about acne treatments, but this is a compelling story for any reader. ~Patty Kingsley Principal
