Eine Mutter auf der Flucht – ein Roadtrip ans Ende der Zivilisation »Bis an die Grenze« ist ein berührender, warmherziger Roman, in dessen Zentrum Josie steht, eine alleinerziehende Mutter, die mitsamt ihren beiden Kindern aus den Zwängen ihres Vorstadtlebens flieht und sich in der Wildnis Alaskas neu zu finden sucht. Dave Eggers Porträt einer Frau, die hin- und hergerissen ist zwischen dem Wunsch nach Konformität und nach Freiheit, ist hochkomisch, wahrhaftig und ungemein aktuell. Josie, eine Zahnärztin, die ihre Praxis hat schließen müssen, bekommt Panik, als ihr Exmann darum bittet, die gemeinsamen Kinder seiner neuen Verlobten vorstellen zu dürfen. Sie packt die Kinder und flieht mit ihnen an den entlegensten Ort, der für sie ohne Pass erreichbar ist: Alaska. Die Reise in dem angemieteten, abgetakelten Wohnmobil durch die Wildnis rüttelt die Familie durcheinander. Der achtjährige Paul übernimmt die fürsorgliche Vaterrolle in der Familie, während die fünfjährige Ana Chaos und Zerstörung magisch anzieht. Was sich zunächst wie ein Abenteuerurlaub am Ende der Welt anfühlt, wird schnell zur verzweifelten Flucht, nicht zuletzt vor einem Lauffeuer, das in der Region ausgebrochen ist. Doch nicht nur das Feuer scheint Josie auf den Fersen zu sein, sie kämpft auch gegen die imaginären sowie realen Geister ihrer Vergangenheit und muss dafür bis an ihre Grenze gehen.

THE EPIC NEW NOVEL FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE BOOK THIEF 'If The Book Thief was a novel that allowed Death to steal the show... [its] brilliantly illuminated follow-up is affirmatively full of life.' Guardian 'This is a tale of love, art and redemption; rowdy and joyous.' Times 'Bridge of Clay is one of those monumental books that can draw you across space and time' Washington Post Here is a story told inside out and back to front Five Dunbar brothers are living – fighting, loving, grieving – in the perfect chaos of a house without grown-ups. Today, the father who left them has just walked right back in. He has a surprising request: Who will build a bridge with him? It is Clay, a boy tormented by a long-buried secret, who accepts. But why is Clay so broken? And why must he fulfil this extraordinary challenge? Bridge of Clay is about a boy caught in a current, a boy intent on destroying everything he has in order to become everything he needs to be. Ahead of him lies the bridge, the vision that will save both his family and himself. It will be a miracle and nothing less. At once an existential riddle and a search for redemption, this tale of five brothers coming of age in a house with no rules brims with energy, joy and pathos. Written in Markus Zusak's distinctive style, it is a tour de force from a master storyteller of the heart.

What I paint touches on foundational life values. Home, family, peacefulness. And one of the messages I try to constantly get across is slow it down and enjoy every moment." --Thomas Kinkade Thomas Kinkade sold more canvases than any other painter in history-more than Picasso, Rembrandt, Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Renoir, and Van Gogh combined. Thomas Kinkade, the celebrated Painter of Light, is the most widely collected artist in the world. His tranquil, light-infused paintings affirm the basic values of family, home, faith in God, and the beauty of nature. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Thomas Kinkade's first published work, Thomas Kinkade: 25 Years collects more than 150 of his most beloved paintings, personal mementos, and unpublished artworks to create a stunning, lavishly produced retrospective of his unprecedented career. Inside the book's pages, Thomas Kinkade's luminous images of lighthouses and seascapes mingle with his magnificent landscapes, quaint villages, and inviting front porches to illustrate a story of personal and professional growth. Each chapter begins with an introduction chronicling a milestone in Thomas Kinkade's life and artistic development, followed by beautiful, full-color reproductions of some of his favorite paintings. Exclusive photographs, family mementos, and never-before-seen unpublished artworks document Thom's life like a personal scrapbook, from childhood through his formative years as a student, to his present status as America's most beloved artist. No other book has given his legions of fans such an up close and personal look at his life. Thomas Kinkade received numerous accolades for his works on and off the canvas, including multiple National Association of Limited Edition Dealers (NALED) awards for Artist of the Year, Graphic Artist of the Year, and nine awards for Lithograph of the Year. NALED also heralded Thomas Kinkade as the Most Award Winning Artist in the Past 25 Years. He commemorated a number of important milestones in American heritage, including the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Winter Games, the 2002 World Series, and Disneyland's 50th anniversary. He was also involved in a number of nonprofit organizations focusing on children, humanitarian relief, and the arts.
