This bestselling biography of legendary trial lawyer Edward Bennett Williams is "a skillful and lively portrait of a larger-than-life lawyer" (Kirkus Reviews). Legendary attorney Edward Bennet Williams was arguably the best trial lawyer ever to practice. Now, for the first time, bestselling author Evan Thomas takes us into the courtrooms of Williams's greatest performances as he defends "Godfather" Frank Costello, Jimmy Hoffa, Frank Sinatra, The Washington Post, and others, as well as behind the scenes where the witnesses are coached, the traps set, and the deals cut. In addition to being a lawyer of unprecedented influence, Williams was also an important Washington insider, privy to the secrets of America's most powerful men. Thomas tells the truth behind the stories that made Williams one of the most talked about public figures of his time, including Williams's role in the publication of the Pentagon Papers and the possibility that Williams may have been Watergate's Deep Throat. Based on Thomas's exclusive access to Williams's papers, The Man to See is an unprecedented look at the strategies and influence of this exceptional man.

If his hangover doesn't kill him the undead just might. At 20,000 words this is the first novella in the Metropolitan Zombie Survivors series. The ending completes the story of Boston but there is always a tomorrow... Pat-O is unemployed and out of shape with a face that makes even his mother wonder what happened to him. At least according to the girl he spent last night with. He feels bad about not remembering her name, but when he tries to turn her anger and the future of his lucky T-shirt into a meet cute on the sidewalk of Beacon Street things start to get ugly. Zombies have besieged the city of Boston and in order to survive Pat-O has to put his fate in the hands of his friend Tucker who may be insane, and the information Tucker’s gathered through the less than reliable network of contacts he has as a follower of a local sports blog. Pat-O needs to get across town before the government will allegedly drop nuclear weapons to stem the tide of undead. Protecting himself with armor made from drained wine boxes and duct tape while using a broken souvenir hockey stick as a weapon Pat-O walks, jogs and sweats his way to Tucker in Cleveland Circle. Their buddy ‘Cupcake’ has stolen a Humvee from the National Guard and will pick them up there before getting out of town - ASAP. Metropolitan Zombie Survivors are courageous, creative and lucky. Pat-O and his friends are not trained for survival and have little to no experience with guns. They survive by banding together and balancing their instincts with scrappiness and a hint of intellect.

Als Jhumpa Lahiri für ihr Debüt mit dem Pulitzerpreis 2000 ausgezeichnet wurde, ging ein Raunen durch die literarische Welt. Seit 1945 wurde kein so junger Autor mehr ausgezeichnet wie die in New York lebende Tochter bengalischer Eltern. Doch die Begeisterung von Lesern und Kritikern gab den Juroren Recht. Niemand kann sich der Suggestion und Schönheit von Lahiris Geschichten entziehen. Ihre leisen Helden leben allesamt zwischen den Welten. Da ist die Inderin Mrs. Sen, die ihre Sehnsucht nach der verlorenen Heimat mit der Freundschaft zu einem amerikanischen Jungen kompensiert. Da sind Shoba und Shukumar, die durch eine Fehlgeburt ihr lang ersehntes Baby verloren haben. Brillante Geschichten über Menschen im Spannungsfeld der sinnlichen Magie Indiens und der Verrücktheiten des amerikanischen Alltags. "Die Erzählungen sind auf ganz wundersame, warme Weise melancholisch." Cosmopolitan "Lahiris Sätze sind einfach, elegant und voller suggestiver Kraft."

Der von Reue geplagte Macbeth muss erkennen, dass wer einmal Blut vergossen hat, sich von dieser Tat nicht mehr reinwaschen kann ... In der universellen menschlichen Figur des Macbeth bewahrheitet sich der Satz Harald Blooms, dass die moderne Persönlichkeit tatsächlich in den Tragödien Shakespeares entstanden ist.

The Kid. The Splendid Splinter. Teddy Ballgame. One of the greatest figures of his generation, and arguably the greatest baseball hitter of all time. But what made Ted Williams a legend – and a lightning rod for controversy in life and in death? Still a gangly teenager when he stepped into a Boston Red Sox uniform in 1939, Williams’s boisterous personality and penchant for towering home runs earned him adoring admirers and venomous critics. In 1941, the entire country followed Williams's stunning .406 season, a record that has not been touched in over six decades. Then at the pinnacle of his prime, Williams left Boston to train and serve as a fighter pilot in World War II, missing three full years of baseball, making his achievements all the more remarkable. Ted Willams's personal life was equally colorful. His attraction to women (and their attraction to him) was a constant. He was married and divorced three times and he fathered two daughters and a son. He was one of corporate America's first modern spokesmen, and he remained, nearly into his eighties, a fiercely devoted fisherman. With his son, John Henry Williams, he devoted his final years to the sports memorabilia business, even as illness overtook him. And in death, controversy and public outcry followed Williams and the disagreements between his children over the decision to have his body preserved for future resuscitation in a cryonics facility--a fate, many argue, Williams never wanted. With unmatched verve and passion, and drawing upon hundreds of interviews, acclaimed best-selling author Leigh Montville brings to life Ted Williams's superb triumphs, lonely tragedies, and intensely colorful personality, in a biography that is fitting of an American hero and legend.

Alle Romane von John le Carré jetzt als E-Book! - "Der Spion, der aus der Kälte kam" ist einer der Romane des 20. Jahrhunderts, die bleiben werden. Meisterhaft verhandelt John le Carré in ihm das Thema Verrat und beschreibt eine Welt, die geprägt ist von fragwürdigen politisch-moralischen Vorstellungen. Der britische Agent Alec Leamas ist für Ostdeutschland zuständig. Undercover wechselt er die Seiten, um seine Informanten zu schützen. Zu spät erkennt er, dass er Spielball einer Intrige geworden ist. Als die Frau, die er liebt, in Gefahr gerät, kommt es zum dramatischen Showdown an der Berliner Mauer. "Der Spion, der aus der Kälte kam" begründete John le Carrés Weltruhm. Die Verfilmung mit Richard Burton und Oskar Werner in den Hauptrollen ist ein Filmklassiker. „Der beste Spionageroman, den ich je gelesen habe." Graham Greene

Armut und Chaos, Resignation und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: In diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA – entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft und damit anfällig für die einfachen Lösungen von Populisten. Früher konnten sich die „Hillbillys“, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter etwa aus Ohio oder Kentucky, erhoffen, kraft ihrer Arbeit zu bescheidenem Wohlstand zu kommen. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien auch die Arbeiterfamilien in eine Abwärtsspirale, aus der die meisten bis heute keinen Ausweg finden. J. D. Vance ist es anhand der Geschichte seiner Familie wie keinem anderen gelungen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.
