The Searing Portrayal Of War That Has Stunned And Galvanized Generations Of Readers An immediate bestseller upon its original publication in 1939, Dalton Trumbo’s stark, profoundly troubling masterpiece about the horrors of World War I brilliantly crystallized the uncompromising brutality of war and became the most influential protest novel of the Vietnam era. Johnny Got His Gun is an undisputed classic of antiwar literature that’s as timely as ever. “A terrifying book, of an extraordinary emotional intensity.”--The Washington Post "Powerful. . . an eye-opener." --Michael Moore "Mr. Trumbo sets this story down almost without pause or punctuation and with a fury amounting to eloquence."--The New York Times "A book that can never be forgotten by anyone who reads it."--Saturday Review

Wenn die Klone versagen, werden die Geisterbrigaden eingesetzt In ferner Zukunft wird der interstellare Krieg mit scheinbar bizarren Mitteln geführt: Für die Verteidigung der Kolonien im All werden nur alte, betagte Menschen rekrutiert. Sie werden geklont und ihre Bewusstseine in jüngere Ausgaben ihrer Selbst transferiert, was sie zu billigem Kanonenfutter macht. Doch als die Aliens sich verbünden und damit den Krieg zu gewinnen drohen, müssen die Geisterbrigaden ran, deren Körper aus genetischem Fremdmaterial hergestellt wurden. Einer von ihnen ist Jared Dirac. Doch sein neuer Körper tut nicht immer das, was er von ihm will, und langsam wird die Zeit knapp.

Johnny is just about to pull the trigger and blow his brains out, but the memory of one of Marcel Marceau's acts gives him hope. Johnny then explains how he got to the point of suicide, and in so telling he realizes his soul was taken from him by a succubus nearly 10 years before. That's why he'd been filled with such despair and emptiness only suicide seemed an adequate answer. That's why all the drugs, alcohol, women, and long nights at the Indian casino just didn't cut it. In an effort to save himself, Johnny finds the entry to Hades and descends into the underworld in search of his soul.

Komma, an artist's book by Antonia Hirsch, is a modified facsimile of Dalton Trumbo's 1938 anti-war novel Johnny Got His Gun. The original book describes a soldier who has lost all of his limbs, his face and consequently the ability to communicate. Addressing issues of censorship and instrumentalization, Hirsch's version of Trumbo's novel has been reedited to include commas--punctuation entirely missing from the original.

Ihre Wege kreuzen sich wieder, als Henry aus dem selbstgewählten Exil in Amerika zurückkehrt zu einer millionenschweren Erbschaft in England und zu seiner distanzierten und abweisenden Mutter. So schnell wie möglich will er mit seine Vergangenheit loswerden und den Familienbesitz gegen den Wunsch seiner Mutter verkaufen. Gleichzeitig kämpft Cato mit zwei großen Leidenschaften: mit seinem Glauben – und mit der verbotenen Liebe zu einem wunderschönen Kriminellen. Ist die Liebe Heilsbringer oder reißt sie alle in den Abgrund?
