When it was first published twenty years ago, The Bedford Guide for College Writers brought a lively and innovative new approach to the teaching of writing. Since that time, authors X. J. and Dorothy M. Kennedy have won praise for their friendly tone and their view, apparent on every page of the text, that writing is the "usually surprising, often rewarding art of thinking while working with language." More recently, experienced teacher and writer Marcia F. Muth joined the author team, adding more practical advice to help all students — even those underprepared for college work — become successful academic writers. While retaining the highly praised "Kennedy touch," The Bedford Guide continues to evolve to meet classroom needs. The new edition does even more to build essential academic writing skills, with expanded coverage of audience analysis, source-based writing, argumentation and reasoning, and more.

Wer nicht schreiben kann, muss STERBEN! Seit dreißig Jahren hat Amy Gallup keinen Roman mehr veröffentlicht. Um ihren Lebensunterhalt zu bestreiten, gibt sie Schreibseminare. Dieses Semester entwickelt sich der Kurs allerdings in eine beunruhigende Richtung: Einer der Teilnehmer mokiert sich – anonym und auf äußerst verletzende Weise – über seine Mitschüler und beginnt, sie durch zunehmend gefährlichere Streiche zu terrorisieren. Schließlich wird einer der Schüler ermordet. Und Amy fragt sich: Wer aus der harmlosen kleinen Gruppe ist fähig, einen Menschen wegen eines schlechten Manuskripts zu töten? «Bissig und lustig, böse und rührend zugleich – Willetts Roman ist höchst originell» (Publisher’s Weekly) «Erbarmungslos [und] immens komisch ... Willetts satirisches Talent ist verblüffend» (The New York Times)

Darf ein guter Moslem es zulassen, dass eine junge Frau unverhüllt auf der Straße läuft? Als die Filmemacherin Leila am Strand von Dschidda aufgefunden wird, scheint ihr Tod die Rache für ein Filmprojekt zu sein, mit dem sie die Doppelmoral der arabischen Gesellschaft anprangern wollte. Doch als man bei Leila Fotos einer verbotenen alten Version des Koran findet, verstehen die junge Pathologin Katya und der strenggläubige Wüstenführer Nayir, dass die Ursachen für den Mord viel weiter reichen. Denn die längst vergessenen Verse stellen die Wurzeln ihres Glaubens infrage... Ein packender Kriminalroman, der intime Einblicke gibt in eine uns weitgehend verschlossene Welt zwischen Wüste, modernem Großstadtleben und den strengen Gesetzen des Islam.
