NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Wonderfully tender and hilariously funny, Eligible tackles gender, class, courtship, and family as Curtis Sittenfeld reaffirms herself as one of the most dazzling authors writing today. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR AND THE TIMES (UK) This version of the Bennet family--and Mr. Darcy--is one that you have and haven't met before: Liz is a magazine writer in her late thirties who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help--and discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling and the family is in disarray. Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their CrossFit workouts and Paleo diets to get jobs. Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master's degree and barely leaves her room, except for those mysterious Tuesday-night outings she won't discuss. And Mrs. Bennet has one thing on her mind: how to marry off her daughters, especially as Jane's fortieth birthday fast approaches. Enter Chip Bingley, a handsome new-in-town doctor who recently appeared on the juggernaut reality TV dating show Eligible. At a Fourth of July barbecue, Chip takes an immediate interest in Jane, but Chip's friend neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy reveals himself to Liz to be much less charming. . . . And yet, first impressions can be deceiving. Praise for Eligible "Even the most ardent Austenite will soon find herself seduced."--O: The Oprah Magazine "Blissful . . . Sittenfeld modernizes the classic in such a stylish, witty way you'd guess even Jane Austen would be pleased."--People (book of the week) "[A] sparkling, fresh contemporary retelling."--Entertainment Weekly "[Sittenfeld] is the ideal modern-day reinterpreter. Her special skill lies not just in her clear, clean writing, but in her general amusement about the world, her arch, pithy, dropped-mike observations about behavior, character and motivation. She can spot hypocrisy, cant, self-contradiction and absurdity ten miles away. She's the one you want to leave the party with, so she can explain what really happened. . . . Not since Clueless, which transported Emma to Beverly Hills, has Austen been so delightedly interpreted. . . . Sittenfeld writes so well--her sentences are so good and her story so satisfying. . . . As a reader, let me just say: Three cheers for Curtis Sittenfeld and her astute, sharp and ebullient anthropological interest in the human condition."--Sarah Lyall, The New York Times Book Review "A clever, uproarious evolution of Austen's story."--The Denver Post "If there exists a more perfect pairing than Curtis Sittenfeld and Jane Austen, we dare you to find it. . . . Sittenfeld makes an already irresistible story even more beguiling and charming."--Elle "A playful, wickedly smart retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice."--BuzzFeed "Sittenfeld is an obvious choice to re-create Jane Austen's comedy of manners. [She] is a master at dissecting social norms to reveal the truths of human nature underneath."--The Millions "A hugely entertaining and surprisingly unpredictable book, bursting with wit and charm."--The Irish Times "An unputdownable retelling of the beloved classic."--PopSugar

Trivia-on-Book: Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld Take the challenge yourself and share it with friends and family for a time of fun! Eligible, Curtis Sittenfeld's newest novel, is "a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice." In this twenty-first century tale, the girls of the Bennet family keep some core traits from the Jane Austen originals, but with a modern take. Jane is a Yoga instructor about to turn forty, Liz is in her late thirties and is a magazine writer who lives in New York City, Mary is all about her online degrees, and Kitty and Lydia are still the youngest and spoiled ones who now are obsessed with Paleo diets and CrossFit. This time, the two eldest sisters came back to the family house to help with their father's recovery from a heart scare. Since all the girls are back home, Mrs. Bennet takes the opportunity to seek potential husbands for her daughters, and what better than a Fourth of July barbecue where Dr. Chip Bingley-a recent contestant of the TV dating show Eligible- is presented, accompanied by his sister and his school friend, Dr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. Taking the characteristic humor from Jane Austen's original, Curtis Sittenfeld made a transition from the countryside of England in the early 1800s to the modern society of Cincinnati.

Jane Austens spannender Roman neu übersetzt Catherine Morland ist für Jane Austen eine ungewöhnliche Romanheldin: zwar ist sie jung und tugendhaft, aber weder ausnehmend schön noch besonders elegant, und als Tochter eines Geistlichen keine sonderlich gute Partie. Ihr Hauptinteresse gilt Büchern und deren Figuren und entsprechend naiv verhält sie sich im realen Leben. Bald aber lernt auch sie, auf ihre Gefühle zu hören und verwandelt sich in eine liebenswürdige junge Frau, die die Männerwelt verzaubert. Ihr Herz schlägt für den gebildeten, wohlerzogenen Henry Tilney, dessen Schwester sie auf den Landsitz der Familie einlädt. Doch die Aura des alten Anwesens Northanger Abbey beflügelt Catherines Phantasie: sie glaubt, einem düsteren Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur gekommen zu sein.

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.

Wiedersehen mit der Familie Bennet aus „Stolz und Vorurteil“ Ein Millionenpublikum liebt Jane Austens „Stolz und Vorurteil“, ihren berühmten Roman über die Sorgen der Familie Bennet, für die fünf Töchter geeignete Ehemänner zu finden. Doch niemand weiß, was sich in Küche und Stall des Hauses Longbourn abspielt: Hier müht sich die junge Sarah über Wäschebottichen und Töpfen ab. Aber sie hat die Hoffnung noch nicht aufgegeben, dass das Leben mehr für sie bereithält. Ist die Ankunft des neuen Hausdieners James ein Zeichen? Während Elizabeth Bennet und Mr Darcy von einem Missverständnis ins nächste stolpern, nimmt im Hause Longbourn noch ein ganz anderes Liebesdrama seinen Lauf – denn James hütet ein Geheimnis von großer Sprengkraft. Jo Baker erzählt Jane Austens bekanntesten Roman von einer ganz anderen Seite: der der Dienstboten. Und zeigt, dass deren Dramen jenen der Herrschaften in nichts nachstehen.

Her protector proves he's much more than a cowboy spy in Dana Marton's first novel of her HQ: Texas series. Moses Mann didn't need to be in an interrogation room to be intimidating. Molly Rogers found that out the hard way. Her brother had been accused of smuggling and murder, and now Moses considered her a suspect, as well. But what type of dirty little secrets did he expect to find in a single mother's life? Moses was no ordinary agent poking around Texas border country. And he kept finding new reasons to bring his investigation to Molly's farm. Yet trusting him—especially around her son—came so easily. She finally had someone who would speak up for her. Even if he was an undercover agent with secrets buried deep in his soul….

Ein wahrgewordener Traum. Doch in der ersten Nacht auf See erwacht sie von einem Geräusch aus der Nachbarkabine. Sie hört, wie etwas ins Wasser geworfen wird.
