A young astronomer in colonial Australia faces tragedy on the ground in this follow-up to the award-winning The Secret River—“A triumph. Read it at once” (The Sunday Times, UK). A stunning follow-up to her Commonwealth Writers’ Prize-winning book, The Secret River, Grenville’s The Lieutenant is a gripping story of friendship, self-discovery, and the power of language set along the unspoiled shores of 1788 New South Wales, Australia. As a boy, Daniel Rooke was an outsider. Ridiculed in school for his intellect and misunderstood by his parents, he finds a path for himself in the British Navy—and in his love for astronomy. As a young lieutenant, Daniel joins a voyage to Australia. And while his countrymen struggle to control their cargo of convicts and communicate with nearby Aboriginal tribes, Daniel constructs an observatory to chart the stars and begin the work he prays will make him famous. Out on his isolated point, Daniel becomes involved with the local Aborigines, forging an intimate connection with one girl that will change the course of his life. But when his compatriots come into conflict with the indigenous population, Daniel must turn away from the stars and declare his loyalties on the ground.

Andre Dubus’s controversial debut: A revealing novel of men at war—with themselves At sea aboard a Navy aircraft carrier, Lieutenant Daniel Tierney finds himself in direct command of his Marine Corps detachment for the first time. Soon, a minor infraction committed by promising young PFC Ted Freeman has expanded into a thorough investigation of initiation rituals and homosexual activity on the ship. Torn between his desire to protect Freeman and his obligation to safeguard the Marines' reputation, Tierney must come to terms with the diminishment of his faith in a system he had once idealized. Dubus's sole novel, The Lieutenant exposes the culture and politics of the United States military at the start of the Vietnam War, and reveals the common insecurities of the men whose lives were defined in its bounds. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Andre Dubus including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

'There's more than one way to skin a theatrical cat; and McDonagh's chosen weapons are laughter and gore... Pushing theatre to its limits, McDonagh is making a serious point... a work as subversive as those Synge and O'Casey plays that sparked Dublin riots in the last century' Guardian 'A brave satire... Swiftianly savage and parodic... with explicit brutal actino and lines which sing with grace and wit' Observer Who knocked Mad Padraic's cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves his cat more than life itself. The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a brilliant satire on terrorism, a powerful corrective to the beautification of violence in contemporary culture, and a hilarious farce. It premiered at the RSC's The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in May 2001. Commentary and notes by Patrick Lonergan

Witzig, warmherzig, skurril.- Kluge Frauenliteratur. Harley ist nach drei gescheiterten Ehen vom Leben enttäuscht. In der Hoffnung auf einen Neuanfang geht sie ins australische Provinznest Karakaook, um dort ein Heimatmuseum aufzubauen und eine alte Brücke als Touristenattraktion zu vermarkten. Eine leichte Aufgabe, wäre da nicht der Ingenieur Douglas, der jene alte, aber baufällige Brücke abreißen soll. Douglas, ein schüchterner Mensch, beobachtet Harley aus sicherer Entfernung. Und obwohl die Brücke sie zu Widersachern macht, überwiegt bei beiden schließlich die Neugier. Warmherzig-ironisch und mit bestechendem Blick für Situationskomik beschreibt Kate Grenville zwei Menschen, die trotz vieler Widrigkeiten und skurriler Hindernisse schließlich ihr Glück finden.

Catalina de Erauso (1592-1650) was a Basque noblewoman who, just before taking final vows to become a nun, escaped from the convent at San Sebastián, dressed as a man, and, in her own words, "went hither and thither, embarked, went into port, took to roving, slew, wounded, embezzled, and roamed about." Her long service fighting for the Spanish empire in Peru and Chile won her a soldier's pension and a papal dispensation to continue dressing in men's clothing. This theoretically informed study analyzes the many ways in which the "Lieutenant Nun" has been constructed, interpreted, marketed, and consumed by both the dominant and divergent cultures in Europe, Latin America, and the United States from the seventeenth century to the present. Sherry Velasco argues that the ways in which literary, theatrical, iconographic, and cinematic productions have transformed Erauso's life experience into a public spectacle show how transgender narratives expose and manipulate spectators' fears and desires. Her book thus reveals what happens when the private experience of a transgenderist is shifted to the public sphere and thereby marketed as a hybrid spectacle for the curious gaze of the general audience.
