This wasn't the first time Galabin Boevski felt oppressed. He had suffered the atrocious legacy of communism and the lack of support that a talented athlete like him should otherwise expect from his motherland.It had been a week since his arrest. He'd spent a night in the jail of Sao Paulo's airport, then transferred to another Brazilian prison for temporary detention. Now he was in Itai, a prison for foreigners, full of people from all over the world.His memories kept rushing in and he kept going over the unfortunate events over and over. What went wrong? He spent his first night in jail with 1500 prisoners who were serving their sentences there - murderers, rapists, fraudsters and thieves, but the majority of them people like him - accused of drug trafficking. "I'm not a mule," he thought, "I am Galabin Boevski. Legendary weightlifter and Olympic champion, not a criminal!" ...based on a true story... ------------------------------------------------------ Galabin Boevski is a complicated figure and weightlifting is a complex sport, filled with intrigue and drama. On the stage, the bar does not lie. You either lift it or not. Behind the scenes, however, as The White Prisoner: Galabin Boevski's Secret Story makes plain, it can be an enormous struggle not just to become Olympic champion but to stay on top. Alan Abrahamson, bestselling author I read the entire volume in two days. I could not put it down. The plot lines leading up to what would hopefully reveal the final athletic and legal outcomes of Boevski were compelling. Mr. Georgiev has done a master job of story telling. One that will provide a much need insight into the psyches, personalities and foibles of star weightlifters and their coaches. Bob Takano, coach and author of Olympic weightlifting It's quite a fascinating story, with quite a bit of drama, as well as elements of tragedy. I found it to be a very gripping and compelling read. Daniel Rosen, author of Dope: A History of Performance Enhancement in Sports from the Nineteenth Century to Today The White Prisoner provides a rare glimpse into the world of Bulgarian weightlifting-chronicling the development of Olympic gold medalist, world champion and world record holder Galabin Boevski, and how things went awry: first in weightlifting and then in Brazil. If you are a weightlifting fan, this is a must-read book, and if you want to be introduced to a gritty world and a universal sport you might never have known existed, you will also want to dive into The White Prisoner.

Lance Armstrong und das Rad der Lügen: Juliet Macur, Sportreporterin bei der New York Times, liefert die erste umfassende Darstellung, wie das System Armstrong über Jahrzehnte funktionieren konnte. Kollegen, Kontrolleure, Sportorganisationen, Sponsoren, Medien und selbst die Familie – sie alle wurden von Lance und seinen Helfern belogen, betrogen und unter zum Teil massiven Druck gesetzt. Das Buch, das auf intensiven Gesprächen mit Lance Armstrong und zahlreichen Interviews mit alten Weggefährten basiert, enthüllt die Zusammenhänge des größten Dopingskandal der Geschichte und liefert das beeindruckende Psychogramm eines scheinbar vollkommen gefühlskalten Egomanen. Spannend von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite – nicht nur für Radsport-Fans!

Der »Friedhof der Klaviere« ist wie ein magischer Ort, an dem sich schon Generationen von Lázaros eingefunden haben, ein Ort freiwilligen Exils, heimlicher Treffen, versteckter Ehebrüche, ein Ort zum Träumen und ein Ort der Musik, die sich im Klang der Sprache des Autors niederschlägt. Drei Tischler aus drei Generationen, verbunden durch ihre Leidenschaft für das Restaurieren von Klavieren, erzählen aus ihrem Leben, einem Kaleidoskop von Liebe und Gewalt, Verletzung und Zärtlichkeit, von Geburt und Tod. Francisco Lázaro hat sein Leben bereits hinter sich, als er damit beginnt. Von einem fürsorglichen Familienvater verwandelt er sich in einen gewalttätigen und trunksüchtigen Ehemann. Seine Kinder werden erwachsen, gründen ihre eigene Familie, doch ihr Schicksal wird immer wieder von der Vergangenheit bestimmt. Sein Sohn Francisco lässt während des Marathonlaufs bei den Olympischen Spielen in Stockholm seine Kindheit Revue passieren. Er stirbt bei Kilometer 30 an dem Tag, an dem nun sein Sohn geboren wird. Der Tod verbindet die Generationen und erneuert sie. Er birgt neues Leben, wie auch die in dem dunklen Raum der Tischlerei neben- und übereinander gestapelten Klaviere zu neuem Leben beitragen, wenn Teile von ihnen benutzt werden, um kaputte Klaviere wieder zum Klingen zu bringen. Was auf den ersten Blick wie eine gewöhnliche Familien-Saga anmutet, sprengt durch die unvergleichliche Sprachgewalt Peixotos, durch die Aufhebung zeitlicher Grenzen, durch die Verschmelzung der Protagonisten jegliche Vorstellungskraft und lässt aus drei Generationen eine werden.
