Der geheimnisvolle „Falter“, der sie in Obhut genommen hat, und dessen exzentrische Freunde kümmern sich fürsorglich um sie. Wer aber sind diese Menschen wirklich? Und was hat es zu bedeuten, dass die Mutter nach langem Schweigen aus dem Nichts wieder zurückkehrt? „Meine Sünden sind vielfältig“, wiederholt sie, mehr gibt sie nicht preis. Als er erwachsen ist, beginnt Nathaniel die geheime Vergangenheit seiner Mutter als Spionin im Kalten Krieg aufzuspüren. Fünfundzwanzig Jahre nach dem „Englischen Patienten“ hat Michael Ondaatje ein neues Meisterwerk geschrieben.

Warlight

by Michael Ondaatje, Warlight Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Warlight books, NATIONAL BEST SELLER From the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author of The English Patient: a mesmerizing new novel that tells a dramatic story set in the decade after World War II through the lives of a small group of unexpected characters and two teenagers whose lives are indelibly shaped by their unwitting involvement. In a narrative as beguiling and mysterious as memory itself--shadowed and luminous at once--we read the story of fourteen-year-old Nathaniel, and his older sister, Rachel. In 1945, just after World War II, they stay behind in London when their parents move to Singapore, leaving them in the care of a mysterious figure named The Moth. They suspect he might be a criminal, and they grow both more convinced and less concerned as they come to know his eccentric crew of friends: men and women joined by a shared history of unspecified service during the war, all of whom seem, in some way, determined now to protect, and educate (in rather unusual ways) Rachel and Nathaniel. But are they really what and who they claim to be? And what does it mean when the siblings' mother returns after months of silence without their father, explaining nothing, excusing nothing? A dozen years later, Nathaniel begins to uncover all that he didn't know and understand in that time, and it is this journey--through facts, recollection, and imagination--that he narrates in this masterwork from one of the great writers of our time.

Zu der buntgemischten Gesellschaft an Bord des Schiffes gehören Außenseiter, die wie sie am Katzentisch sitzen, und andere Reisegefährten, nicht zuletzt die aus der noblen Senatorenklasse. Sie alle sind geheimnisumwitterte Objekte der Sehnsucht oder der Spekulation: der Baron, der so elegant Mitreisende bestiehlt, der todkranke Millionär oder die Artistentruppe mit Wahrsager, in den sich Emily verliebt. Michael Ondaatje, der Autor von "Der englische Patient", erzählt ein Abenteuer, das Gleichnis ist für das wahre, wilde Leben: mit dramatischen Szenen, unvergesslichen Figuren und Bildern, die im Gedächtnis haftenbleiben.

Warlight

by Fernando Sucre, Warlight Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Warlight books, In 1945 our parents went away and left us in the care of two men who may have been criminals. We were living on a street in London called Ruvigny Gardens, and one morning either our mother or our father suggested that after breakfast the family have a talk, and they told us that they would be leaving us and going to Singapore for a year. Not too long, they said, but it would not be a brief trip either. We would of course be well cared for in their absence. I remember our father was sitting on one of those uncomfortable iron garden chairs as he broke the news, while our mother, in a summer dress just behind his shoulder, watched how we responded. After a while she took my sister Rachel's hand and held it against her waist, as if she could give it warmth. Neither Rachel nor I said a word. We stared at our father, who was expanding on the details of their flight on the new Avro Tudor I, a descendant of the Lancaster bomber, which could cruise at more than three hundred miles an hour. They would have to land and change planes at least twice before arriving at their destination. He explained he had been promoted to take over the Unilever office in Asia, a step up in his career. It would be good for us all. He spoke seriously and our mother turned away at some point to look at her August garden. After my father had finished talking, seeing that I was confused, she came over to me and ran her fingers like a comb through my hair.

Und Wieder Februar

by Lisa Moore, Und Wieder Februar Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Und Wieder Februar books, Bei einem Unfall auf einer Bohrplattform vor Neufundland verliert Helen ihren Mann Cal. Die vierfache Mutter muss nun ihre Kinder alleine großziehen. Lange Zeit demonstriert sie nach außen hin Stärke: sie sucht sich Arbeit, erledigt den Haushalt und unternimmt Reisen. Doch innerlich bleibt sie von der Trauer um ihren Mann gebrochen. Als nach Jahren der Isolierung ein neuer Mann in ihr Leben tritt und die Kinder aus dem Haus sind, steht ihr Leben vor einer bedeutenden Wende. Lisa Moores Roman ist von erstaunlicher Intensität. Mit einer Sprache von ungewöhnlicher Sinnlichkeit erkundet sie die Gefühlswelt ihrer Protagonisten und erzählt eine Geschichte von der Möglichkeit des Glücks.
