In 1954, in the cookhouse of a logging and sawmill settlement in northern New Hampshire, a twelve-year-old boy mistakes the local constable's girlfriend for a bear. Both the twelve-year-old and his father become fugitives, pursued by the constable. Their lone protector is a fiercely libertarian logger, once a river driver, who befriends them. In a story spanning five decades, Last Night in Twisted River - John Irving's twelfth novel - depicts the recent half-century in the United States as a world 'where lethal hatreds were generally permitted to run their course.' From the novel's taut opening sentence to its elegiac final chapter, what distinguishes Last Night in Twisted River is the author's unmistakable voice, the inimitable voice of an accomplished storyteller.

Author: Bradley Beaulieu
Publisher: Knaur eBook
Von Kollegen mit Lob überschüttet, von Kritikern gefeiert, von Lesern geliebt: Der 1. Band der hochgelobten Fantasy-Trilogie "Die Legenden der Bernsteinstadt" von Bradley P. Beaulieu ist ein süchtig machendes Wüsten-Abenteuer. Auf Kufen gleiten stolze Handelsschiffe über das Sandmeer nach Sharakhai, Wiege der Zivilisation und Heimat der Zwölf Könige. Vor Jahrhunderten haben die Götter selbst ihnen unvorstellbare Macht verliehen, seither beherrschen sie die wundersame Stadt mit eiserner Hand. Die Waise Çeda hat es mit ihren 19 Jahren zu einer gerissenen Diebin und gefeierten Arenakämpferin gebracht. Doch nie wird sie jene Nacht vergessen, als ihre Mutter im Namen der Zwölf Könige hingerichtet wurde. Auf der Suche nach Rache verbündet Çeda sich mit allerlei zwielichtigen Gestalten und gerät mitten hinein in eine Verschwörung, in der der Tod ihrer Mutter eine viel größere Rolle spielt, als sie je hätte ahnen können. "Eine beeindruckende Leistung." Publishers Weekly "Exotisch, opulent und unglaublich unterhaltsam: Beaulieu hat unvergessliche Charaktere in einer äußerst detailreichen Welt geschaffen." Michael J. Sullivan, Autor von "Riyria" "Die Figuren sind hervorragend charakterisiert und haben ein Leben und eine Geschichte, die über die Grenzen der Handlung hinausweisen. Die Kultur ist gut ausgearbeitet und traditionelle Geschlechterrollen werden aufgebrochen." Robin Hobb, Autorin der "Weitseher"-Trilogie

Publisher: Random House
'Ottolenghi changed the way we cook in this country just as surely and enduringly as Elizabeth David’s A Book of Mediterranean Food had in 1950. It brought into our kitchens bold flavours, a vivid simplicity, a spirited but never tricksy inventiveness and, above all, light.’ Nigella Lawson Inspired by their childhoods in West and East Jerusalem, Yotam Ottolenghi’s and Sami Tamimi’s original cookbook Ottolenghi: The Cookbook showcases fresh, honest, bold cooking and has become a culinary classic. Yotam and Sami's inventive yet simple dishes rest on numerous culinary traditions, ranging from North Africa to Lebanon, Italy and California. First published in 2008, this new updated edition revisits the 140 original recipes covering everything from accomplished meat and fish main courses, through to healthy and quick salads and suppers, plus Ottolenghi's famously delectable cakes and breads. A new introduction sheds fresh light on a book that has become a national favourite. Ottolenghi is an award-winning chef, being awarded with the James Beard Award 'Cooking from a Professional Point of View' for Nopi in 2016, and 'International Cookbook' for Jerusalem in 2013. In 2013 he also won four other awards for Jerusalem. Praise for Ottolenghi: ‘[A] book that has barely left my kitchen...the fact that Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi have been generous to put their recipes in a book is something I had long dreamed of’ Nigel Slater, The Observer Magazine ‘Possibly the best cookery book I have ever owned. The recipes...are well-tested and produce results that will astound your tastebuds. Try the aubergine-wrapped ricotta gnocchi with sage butter, the chicken with three-rice salad or their famous meringues and you'll know just what I mean.’ Caroline Jowett, Daily Express ‘A wonderful book for vegetarians and cake lovers alike’ Bee Wilson, Sunday Times

Publisher: Tuttle Publishing
**2011 Best Arab Cuisine book in the U.S., Gourmand World Cookbook Award** Prepare delicious and healthy meals with this award-winning Arabian cookbook For untold centuries, the Bedouin of the Arabian Peninsula, in their desert tents, have served their honored guests lavish meals featuring roasted lamb with rice. Bedouin hospitality has not changed over the ages but Arabian cuisine has undergone a remarkable evolution in the last 100 years, making it extremely diverse. This diversity is due, in part, to the explosion of wealth on the Arabian peninsula which has drawn people—along with their foods and cooking methods—from around the world. The blending of these culinary worlds has produced something remarkable. In The Arabian Nights Cookbook, author Habeeb Salloum has compiled an amazing array of recipes that celebrate this blending of cultures while still making it compatible with the everyday kitchens of the Western world.
