These stories come at us from every direction. They are Ron Carlson's response to the eighties, the stories we will want by our sides as the decade ends. Whether it is a husband trying to bring his marriage back together or Bigfoot finally coming forward, Carlson's characters speak with radical honesty that is disarming. They are the men and women all around us who open the refrigerator at two in the morning and see the faces of missing children on the milk carton. The world is a large dose sometimes, and they wonder whether they can measure up to its danger and its magic.

In this account of the growth of newspapers in modern, industrial society, Helen Hughes traces the development of a mass audience through analysis of the origins of the human interest story in the popular ballads of an earlier day. She shows how such commonly found interests as a taste for news of the town, ordinary gossip, and moving or gripping tales with a legendary or mythic quality have reflected the tastes of ordinary folk from the days of illiterate audiences to the present. She explains how these interests ultimately were combined with practical economic and political information to create the substance and demand for a popular press. In describing the rise and fall of newspaper empires, each with their special readership attractions, Dr. Hughes shows how technological innovation and idiosyncratic creativity were used by owners to capture and hold a reading audience. Once this audience developed, it could be fed a variety of messages--beamed at reinforcing and maintaining both general and specific publics--as well as a view of the world consonant with that of the publisher and major advertisers. Hughes offers a persuasive argument for the continuing viability of this method for combined social control, instruction, and amusement captured by the association of news and the human interest story.

Ein Mann sitzt nach einer Beerdigung an einem strahlend hellen Sommertag im Kino, sieht einen Zeichentrickfilm an und fängt plötzlich an zu schreien; eine Frau, die auf einer von einem Ölteppich eingeschlossenen Insel lebt, verliebt sich unsterblich in den alten Künstler, für den sie täglich putzt, ohne kaum je mehr als ein paar Sätze mit ihm gewechselt zu haben; eine Schriftstellerin, bei der es sich um Paula Fox selbst handelt, wird um ein Haar an ihrem eigenen Schreibtisch erschossen, weil Jugendliche im Nachbargarten mit einer geladenen Pistole spielen. Neben ihren Romanen und Jugendbüchern hat Paula Fox seit den 60er-Jahren Erzählungen und kleine Prosastücke geschrieben, die hier zum ersten Mal versammelt sind. Oft sind es kleine, stille Begebenheiten, die sich schließlich zu etwas Unerhörtem ausweiten und so von den großen Themen Liebe, Tod und Verlust erzählen. Paula Fox ist eine Meisterin der genauen Beobachtungen, die selbst den einfachsten Situationen eine Poesie abtrotzt, die einen gefangen nimmt. Mit ihrer feinen, klaren und eindringlichen Sprache erschafft sie eine ganz eigene Welt, in der die Grenzen zwischen Autobiographie und Fiktion irgendwann nahezu aufgehoben scheinen. «Die Zigarette und andere Stories» versammelt Texte von den 60er-Jahren bis heute, die noch einmal die kluge Beobachtungsgabe und die Menschenkenntnis einer großen zeitgenössischen Autorin, deren Leben und Schreiben untrennbar miteinander verbunden sind, unter Beweis stellen.

What's news? A front-page news story in the United States might not appear in a newspaper in China. Or a minor story on German television may be all over the airwaves in India. But News Around the World shows that the underlying nature of news is much the same the world over and that people--no matter what their jobs or their status in society--tend to hold similar notions of newsworthiness. In this richly detailed study of international news, news makers and the audience, the authors have undertaken exhaustive original research within two cities--one major and one peripheral--in each of ten countries: Australia, Chile, China, Germany, India, Israel, Jordan, Russia, South Africa, and the United States. The nations were selected for study based on a central principle of maximizing variation in geographic locations, economic and political systems, languages, sizes, and cultures. The remarkable scope of the research makes this the most comprehensive analysis of newsworthiness around the globe: 10 countries studied, each with a university country director 2 cities in each country examined, one major and one peripheral 60 news media studied (newspapers, television, and radio news programs), resulting in 32,000+ news items analyzed 80 focus groups with journalists, public relations practitioners, and audience members 2,400 newspaper stories ranked according to newsworthiness and compared with how prominently they were published. News Around the World provides remarkable insight into how and why news stories are reported, testing and improving a theory of cross-cultural newsworthiness and is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand international media and journalism.

Moskau, 1922. Der genussfreudige Lebemann Graf Rostov wird verhaftet und zu lebenslangem Hausarrest verurteilt, ausgerechnet im Hotel Metropol, dem ersten Haus am Platz. Er muss alle bisher genossenen Privilegien aufgeben und eine Arbeit als Hilfskellner annehmen. Rostov mit seinen 30 Jahren ist ein äußerst liebenswürdiger, immer optimistischer Gentleman. Trotz seiner eingeschränkten Umstände lebt er ganz seine Überzeugung, dass selbst kleine gute Taten einer chaotischen Welt Sinn verleihen. Aber ihm bleibt nur der Blick aus dem Fenster, während draußen Russland stürmische Dekaden durchlebt. Seine Stunde kommt, als eine alte Freundin ihm ihre kleine Tochter anvertraut. Das Kind ändert Rostovs Leben von Grund auf. Für das Mädchen und sein Leben wächst der Graf über sich hinaus.

The day that the closure of the News of the World was announced, will forever be regarded as the saddest in the entire history of journalism. Paul Barker was one of the handful of freelance photographers used on a full time basis by the paper, so when it came, the news was a devastating bombshell. After over 20 years working as a photojournalist, with 12 of those on the News of the World, he has been uniquely placed to give an insight into what it was like to work on a Sunday tabloid. From photography tips, to getting into events without a pass, 'Snapper' provides a fantastic, and highly amusing, window into the world of a national newspaper photographer. Rather than an expose into the phone hacking scandal that finally engulfed the paper, Snapper...Confessions of a News of the World Photographer, is a celebration of some of its finest moments. Recounted in a personal and engaging style, it is a series of often hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking anecdotes. It chronicles some of the best known, as well as some of the more obscure stories, covered by what many have come to regard as the world’s greatest newspaper.
