Following All the Pretty Horses in Cormac McCarthy's Border Trilogy is a novel whose force of language is matched only by its breadth of experience and depth of thought. In the bootheel of New Mexico hard on the frontier, Billy and Boyd Parham are just boys in the years before the Second World War, but on the cusp of unimaginable events. First comes a trespassing Indian and the dream of wolves running wild amongst the cattle lately brought onto the plain by settlers -- this when all the wisdom of trappers has disappeared along with the trappers themselves. And so Billy sets forth at the age of sixteen on an unwitting journey into the souls of boys and animals and men. Having trapped a she-wolf he would restore to the mountains of Mexico, he is long gone and returns to find everything he left behind transformed utterly in his absence. Except his kid brother, Boyd, with whom he strikes out yet again to reclaim what is theirs thus crossing into "that antique gaze from whence there could be no way back forever." An essential novel by any measure, The Crossing is luminous and appalling, a book that touches, stops, and starts the heart and mind at once. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Eine Ikone der modernen Kriminalliteratur: Der 20. Fall für Detective Harry Bosch - von Amerikas Top-Thriller-Autor Michael Connelly Detective Harry Bosch ist in Rente gegangen und nicht mehr beim Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), aber sein Halbbruder, der Anwalt Mickey Haller, braucht die Hilfe des erfahrenen Ermittlers. Eine Frau ist im Schlafzimmer ihres Hauses brutal ermordet worden, und alle Indizien deuten auf einen von Hallers Klienten, einen früheren Gangster, mittlerweile bürgerlicher Familienvater. Obwohl die Mordanklage wasserdicht scheint, hält Mickey sie für vorgeschoben. Offenbar soll seinem unschuldigen Klienten etwas angehängt werden. Zuerst will Bosch damit nichts zu tun haben, aber dann nimmt er sich der Sache an und betreibt mit der ihm eigenen Hartnäckigkeit Nachforschungen, um den Fall aufzuklären. Doch je näher er der Wahrheit kommt, umso mehr gerät er in das Visier des Täters ... »Der amtierende Herrscher des Polizei-Thrillers.« Kirkus Reviews über Michael Connelly

Not to be confused with the famed twentieth-century British prime minister, American author Winston Churchill took as his fictional palette the history of his native country. Following in the tradition of Churchill's other sweeping historical epics, The Crossing is a thrilling account of the settlement of the Western United States, with a particular focus on the rough-and-tumble early years of the territory that would later become Kentucky.

Ranging across artists from Raphael to Rothko, Caravaggio to Pollock, The Crossing of the Visible offers both a critique of contemporary accounts of the visual and a constructive alternative. According to Marion, the proper response to the 'nihilism' of postmodernity is not iconoclasm, but rather a radically iconic account of the visual and the arts which opens them to the invisible.

*Now a Major Film* On the night of 24 August 1875 Matthew Webb, a 27-year-old British Navy captain, launched himself into the English Channel at Dover. Twenty-one hours and 45 minutes later he became the first man to swim the English Channel. In this acclaimed biography, Kathy Watson shows how Captain Webb was instrumental in bringing the sport of swimming into the modern era. It is also a study of the Victorian drive to push back the boundaries of endurance. In THE CROSSING, Watson uses this great British eccentric's extraordinary life as a springboard to explore themes of obsession and failure and the emerging force of the media, and swimming's place in our psyche.
