National BestsellerA New York Times Notable Book of 2017Named Best Book of 2017 by Esquire, Times Literary Supplement, Elle Magazine, LitHub, Publishers Weekly, Financial Times, Guardian, Refinery29, Popsugar, and Globe and Mail"A brilliant novel. I am full of admiration." -Philip Roth"One of America's most important novelists" (New York Times), the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The History of Love, conjures an achingly beautiful and breathtakingly original novel about personal transformation that interweaves the stories of two disparate individuals-an older lawyer and a young novelist-whose transcendental search leads them to the same Israeli desert.Jules Epstein, a man whose drive, avidity, and outsized personality have, for sixty-eight years, been a force to be reckoned with, is undergoing a metamorphosis. In the wake of his parents' deaths, his divorce from his wife of more than thirty years, and his retirement from the New York legal firm where he was a partner, he's felt an irresistible need to give away his possessions, alarming his children and perplexing the executor of his estate. With the last of his wealth, he travels to Israel, with a nebulous plan to do something to honor his parents. In Tel Aviv, he is sidetracked by a charismatic American rabbi planning a reunion for the descendants of King David who insists that Epstein is part of that storied dynastic line. He also meets the rabbi's beautiful daughter who convinces Epstein to become involved in her own project-a film about the life of David being shot in the desert-with life-changing consequences.But Epstein isn't the only seeker embarking on a metaphysical journey that dissolves his sense of self, place, and history. Leaving her family in Brooklyn, a young, well-known novelist arrives at the Tel Aviv Hilton where she has stayed every year since birth. Troubled by writer's block and a failing marriage, she hopes that the hotel can unlock a dimension of reality-and her own perception of life-that has been closed off to her. But when she meets a retired literature professor who proposes a project she can't turn down, she's drawn into a mystery that alters her life in ways she could never have imagined.Bursting with life and humor, Forest Dark is a profound, mesmerizing novel of metamorphosis and self-realization-of looking beyond all that is visible towards the infinite.

BAG - Bay Area German Linguistic Fieldwork Project
85,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The sixteen chapters comprising this book on the Bay Area German Linguistic Fieldwork Project offer over twenty-five years of research into the changing language of native speakers and first-generation American-German speakers residing in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since 1984 the principal project investigator, Irmengard Rauch, together with students of Germanic linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley, has elicited and analyzed an array of linguistic phenomena that include politically correct (PC) German, the German language of vulgarity and civility, and the grammar of e-mailing and texting German as well as that of snail-mail German. Comparison data were also gathered from Berlin in the case of the PC German and from Bonn in the case of the vulgarity/civility project. In recording the sounds of spoken German in the Bay Area, the BAG fieldworkers interviewed not only German-speaking adults but also first-generation German-speaking children (yielding a "Kinderlect") to compare with the spoken English of both of these groups. Still other studies focus on the interplay among gesture, emotion, and language, canine-human communication, the architecture of the lie, and the architecture of the apology. Chapter one details the modus operandi of the BAG research project.This book is useful for the study of the sociolinguistics of German, English-German bilingualism, general linguistics, and the methods of linguistic fieldwork.

Secret Project Notebook

Fritz has just arrived in a place so secret it isn't shown on any map. Even mentioning its name is forbidden. Mail is censored. Visitors are not allowed. When Fritz-known as Franklin until he came here-learns that this remote spot in the New Mexico mountains is the site of a heavily guarded government laboratory, his curiosity takes over. Exactly what are his father and other scientists working on at the lab? It's common knowledge that their top-secret project has something to do with the war in Europe and the Pacific, but what? Fritz is determined to find out. With the help of Kathy, his seventh-grade classmate, Fritz searches for clues. He records each observation and every rumor in a notebook he doesn't dare let out of his sight. His sleuthing-and trying to avoid, evade, or outwit the two bullies who have it in for him-keeps Fritz busy. But he finds time to explore the area with his Spanish-American friend Manny, to become involved in a prank with unintended consequences, and to get into serious trouble when he and Manny show too much interest in a restricted area.
