When Peter Russell finally meets the woman of his dreams he falls as madly in love as you can on a flight from New York to LA. Her name is Holly. She's achingly pretty with strawberry-blonde hair, and reads Thomas Mann for pleasure. She gives Peter her phone number on a page of The Magic Mountain, but in his room that night Peter finds the page is inexplicably, impossibly, enragingly...gone. So begins the immensely entertaining story of Peter and his unrequited love for his best friend's girl; of Charlotte and her less-than-perfect marriage to a man in love with someone else; of Jonathan and his wicked and fateful debauchery; and of Holly, the impetus for it all. Along the way, there's the evil boss, the desirable temptress, miscommunications, misrepresentations, fiendish behavior, letters gone astray, and ultimately, an ending in which every character gets his due. Both incisive and wonderfully funny, this is a brilliantly understated comedy of manners in which love lost is found again. "James Collins has written a romantic, funny and insightful page turner about love in modern times, missed opportunities and the wheel of fate (with a blow-out!) that is so engaging and real, you will find

Mit dem Überraschungserfolg »Bedeutende Objekte und persönliche Besitzstücke aus der Sammlung von Lenore Doolan und Harold Morris, darunter Bücher, Mode und Schmuck« erfand Leanne Shapton auf spektakuläre Weise die Liebesgeschichte neu. »Bahnen ziehen« ist ihre Liebeserklärung an das Schwimmen. Und wieder beschreitet sie neue Wege des Erzählens – in Wort und Bild. Der Geruch von Chlor durchweht dieses Buch, die Rufe des Trainers hallen darin wider. Junge Menschen auf dem Sprung zum großen Traum: Teil des olympischen Schwimmteams zu werden. Selbst jenseits des Beckens noch ist ihr Leben, sind ihre Gespräche und Träume, ihre Essgewohnheiten und Liebesbeziehungen geprägt vom Rhythmus des Trainings und ihren sportlichen Ambitionen. Doch wo hat die Faszination für das Schwimmen ihren Ursprung? In den Kinderbüchern? Den Familienausflügen ans Meer? Und was ist heute, wo ganz andere Dinge ihr Leben bestimmen, von dieser Faszination noch übrig? Leanne Shapton, damals selbst Teil der Schwimmmannschaft, geht diesen Fragen nach – Bahn um Bahn. So ist aus sehr persönlichen Momentaufnahmen zwischen Selbstdisziplin und Selbstfindung ein eindringliches, unmittelbares Panorama des Erwachsenwerdens entstanden. - Mit zahlreichen farbigen Illustrationen und Fotos

Impeccably dressed, meticulously neat, Dana Sue Gray spared no expense on herself. Dropping thousands of dollars on a shopping binge or a luxurious day spa was nothing out of the ordinary for Dana--nor for many wealthy women. But Dana wasn't wealthy--she was an unemployed nurse. She was also a serial murderess, who preyed upon elderly women, violently killed them, then used their credit cards to embark on wild, post-murder spending sprees. Women serial killers are rare--there are only 36 documented cases--and those, like Dana Sue Gray, who murder so brutally that veteran police officers are shaken by the bloodiness of the crime scene, are even rarer. In To Die For, an exposé as shocking and fascinating as its subject matter, author Kathy Braidhill explores the stunning story of Dana Sue Gray, one of the most dangerous, deadly, and disturbed women in history.
