'I loved A Curious Friendship. Anna Thomasson, in her first book, has brilliantly captured this strange coterie.' Sir Roy Strong The winter of 1924: Edith Olivier, alone for the first time at the age of 51, thought her life had come to an end. For Rex Whistler, a 19-year-old art student, life was just beginning. They were to start an intimate and unlikely friendship that would transform their lives. Gradually Edith's world opened up and she became a writer. Her home, the Daye House, in a wooded corner of the Wilton estate, became a sanctuary for Whistler and the other brilliant and beautiful younger men of her circle: among them Siegfried Sassoon, Stephen Tennant, William Walton, John Betjeman, the Sitwells and Cecil Beaton - for whom she was 'all the muses'. The story is set against the backdrop of a period that spanned the madcap parties of the 1920s, the sophistication of the 1930s and the drama and austerity of the Second World War. With an extraordinary cast of friends and acquaintances, from the Royal Family to Tallulah Bankhead, Anna Thomasson's A Curious Friendship brings to life, for the first time, the curious, unlikely and fascinating friendship of a bluestocking and a bright young thing.

Als eine Bekannte den Tierfreund Steve Jenkins fragte, ob er nicht ein Minischwein adoptieren wolle, wusste Steve, dass sein Lebensgefährte Derek nicht gerade begeistert sein würde. Dennoch willigte er ein, sich des süßen kleinen Ferkels anzunehmen. Eine Entscheidung, die Dereks und sein Leben für immer verändern sollte. Denn rein gar nichts an Esther war »Mini« – in drei Jahren wurde sie zu einem ausgewachsenen Hausschwein von 335 Kilo. Doch trotz aller Schwierigkeiten und einer Menge buchstäblicher »Schweinereien« liebten die beiden Esther: nur wie sollte es in ihrer Stadtwohnung mitten in Toronto mit der tierischen WG weitergehen? Wieder fassten sie einen weitreichenden Entschluss: per Crowdfunding finanzierten sie ein Gnadenhof-Projekt für ehemalige Nutztiere. Heute leben sie mit Esther und vielen anderen tierischen Freunden auf dem Land in Ontario im Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary.

The story of the controversial friendship between Nobel prize-winning author Gabriel Gabriel García Márquez and Fidel Castro In Fidel and Gabo, Márquez scholars Ángel Esteban and Stéphanie Panichelli examine this strange, intimate, and incredibly controversial friendship between the beloved author and Cuban dictator, exposing facets of their personalities never before revealed to the greater public. For years, Márquez, long fascinated with power, solicited and flattered Castro in hopes of a personal audience, for he viewed Castro’s Cuba as the model on which Latin American would one day build its own brand of socialism. Fidel and Gabo is a vivid and in-depth look at two of the most influential men of the modern era, their worlds, and the effect this friendship has had on their life and works.

Die Biografie des Jahres über einen der revolutionärsten Entwickler der Welt Macintosh, iMac, iPod, iTunes, iPhone, iPad – Steve Jobs hat der digitalen Welt mit der Kultmarke Apple Ästhetik und Aura gegeben. Wo Bill Gates für solide Alltagsarbeit steht, ist der Mann aus San Francisco die Stilikone des IT-Zeitalters, ein begnadeter Vordenker, der kompromisslos seiner Idee folgt. Genial und selbstbewusst hat er trotz ökonomischer und persönlicher Krisen den Apfel mit Biss (Bite) zum Synonym für Innovation und Vision gemacht. Doch wer ist dieser Meister der Inszenierung, was treibt ihn? Walter Isaacson gewann das Vertrauen des Apple-Chefs und konnte als erster Biograf während der langjährigen Recherchen auf seine uneingeschränkte Unterstützung ebenso bauen wie auf die seiner Familie, seiner Weggefährten und auch der Kontrahenten. Entstanden ist das Buch über Steve Jobs und sein Unternehmen – nicht nur für Apple-Fans.
