Emma Waterston is determined, headstrong, and comes from a lifestyle where class structure determines one´s associations. Left destitute after the death of her mother, she takes a job at a textile factory. When a fire destroys her place of employment, leaving her penniless again, she makes a desperate decision and answers an ad for a mail order bride from a wealthy Kentucky horse breeder. Sam Hawley is content with his life as a horse trainer on an affluent Kentucky estate. His primary focus has always been on the horses. He views their owners as rich people with nothing to do but flaunt their money. Loyalty to his mentor is the only thing that keeps him rooted to one place. When he meets the bride-to-be of the man he detests the most, his life is about to change. Too late, Emma discovers the ad she answered was too good to be true. Her future husband is not what she was led to believe and a horrific experience leaves her no choice but to face the kind of life she´s been trying to escape. Kentucky was supposed to promise a return to her life of wealth. What she finds instead will redefine her definition of being rich. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cody Roberts.

Jessie: Bride of South Carolina is the eighth of 50 in the unprecedented American Mail-Order Brides series. Tired of living under her father´s iron thumb of control, Jessie Wilcox decides to do the unthinkable: run away to Montana as a mail-order bride. The only obstacle in her way: the 100 miles between her home in Williamsburg County and the train depot in Charleston. Joel Cunningham is in utter disbelief when the girl he once loved beyond reason is on his front porch asking him to disobey her father´s wishes and drive her to Charleston. Logic and reason scream no; his lips, however, say yes. Will the 100 miles ahead of them be enough to overcome the five years of painful regrets, or will Jessie follow her dream for a new life in Montana? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Margo Trueblood.

Junk Mail , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 582min
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Will Self is one of the most important British novelists of his generation, and he is as acclaimed in the UK for his outstanding, daring journalism as he is for his fiction. Now finally available in America, Junk Mail is an original selection of pieces from Self´s nonfiction and journalism that will introduce American listeners to Self as a literary journalist par excellence. Animated by the scathing brilliance and unflinching determination to walk the road less traveled, Junk Mail is an often-irreverent trawl through a landscape of drugs, culture, art, literature, and current events - topics Self illuminates with a keen and entirely original eye. We follow Self into the operation of an upstanding crack dealer, behind the myth of the ´´pragmatist´´ approach to drug legalization on the streets of Amsterdam, and to lunch with Indian author Salman Rushdie. Whether he is writing about bad-boy British artist Damien Hirst, how literary renegade William Burroughs has changed our outlook on art and intoxication, or what the current state of transsexuality has to say about gender for all of us, this is a lively and necessary anthology from one of the defining voices of our times. 1.

Selected Letters of Norman Mailer , Hörbuch, Di...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A genuine literary event - an illuminating collection of correspondence from one of the most acclaimed American writers of all time Over the course of a nearly sixty-year career, Norman Mailer wrote more than 30 novels, essay collections, and nonfiction books. Yet nowhere was he more prolific - or more exposed - than in his letters. All told, Mailer crafted more than 45,000 pieces of correspondence (approximately 20 million words), many of them deeply personal, keeping a copy of almost every one. Now the best of these are published - most for the first time - in one remarkable volume that spans seven decades and, it seems, several lifetimes. Together they form a stunning autobiographical portrait of one of the most original, provocative, and outspoken public intellectuals of the twentieth century. Compiled by Mailer´s authorized biographer, J. Michael Lennon, and organized by decade, Selected Letters of Norman Mailer features the most fascinating of Mailer´s missives from 1940 to 2007 - letters to his family and friends, to fans and fellow writers (including Truman Capote, James Baldwin, and Philip Roth), to political figures from Henry Kissinger to Bill and Hillary Clinton, and to such cultural icons as John Lennon, Marlon Brando, and even Monica Lewinsky. Here is Mailer the precocious Harvard undergraduate, writing home to his parents for the first time and worrying that his acceptances by literary magazines were ´´all happening too easy.´´ Here, too, is Mailer the soldier, confronting the violence of war in the Pacific, which would become the subject of his masterly debut novel, The Naked and the Dead: ´´[I´m] amazed how casually it fits into...daily life, how very unhorrible it all is.´´ Mailer the international celebrity pledges to William Styron, ´´I´m going to write every day, and like Lot´s Wife I´m consigning myself to a pillar of salt if I dare to look back,´´ while the 1980s Mailer agonizes over the fallout ... 1.
