'Relegate anything else you're reading - there is no other book to be seen with now' The Times'Obscene, beautiful, moving' New YorkerThese seven startling stories of family, femininity, sexuality and otherness will plunge you into the tender and chaotic hearts of narrators you won't easily forget.Centred on a community of immigrants who have traded their endangered lives as artists in China and Taiwan for the constant struggle of life on the poverty line in 1990s New York City, the stories that make up Sour Heart examine the many ways that family and history can weigh us down, but also lift us up.From the young woman coming to terms with her grandmother's role in the Cultural Revolution, to the daughter struggling to understand where her family ends and she begins, to the girl discovering the power of her body to inspire and destroy, these vibrant, raw and powerful stories illuminate the complex and messy inner lives of girls struggling to define themselves.Fuelled by Jenny Zhang's singular voice and sly humour, Sour Heart introduces a bright new force in literary fiction.

"These delightful stories do that essential-but-rare story thing: they surprise . They skip past the quotidian, the merely real, to the essential, and do so with a spirit of tenderness and wonder that is wholly unique. They are (let me coin a phrase) July-esque , which is to say: infused with wonder at the things of the world." -George Saunders, author of Tenth of DecemberAward-winning filmmaker and performing artist Miranda July brings her extraordinary talents to the page in a startling, sexy, and tender collection. In these stories, July gives the most seemingly insignificant moments a sly potency. A benign encounter, a misunderstanding, a shy revelation can reconfigure the world. Her characters engage awkwardly-they are sometimes too remote, sometimes too intimate. With great compassion and generosity, July reveals their idiosyncrasies and the odd logic and longing that govern their lives. No One Belongs Here More Than You is a stunning debut, the work of a writer with a spectacularly original and compelling voice.

This is the story of two good friends Shiv and Stitch and their first adventure into the place they call large land. It all begins as a bit of fun that will soon take them from the warmth and safety of the kitchen drawer. To a land where nothing is as it seems, and where danger is never far away. And as they begin their journey we will meet some of the characters that have made large land their home. Hobble the hare and Snuffle the hedgehog. And the mighty owl Romulus who lives and hunts from the rafters of the old barn. We will tip toe to the edge of pike wood where concealed by the morning mist the broken sails of dragon mill hold a secret. We can laugh at Fang the rhyming fox, and tremble as One Eye the sly approaches with the pike wood pirates, as they prepare to do battle with the shiny points. And there always watching always waiting, Twizzle the cushion cat and his licked clean dish. Two friends on a journey of discovery as they try to find a way home, welcome to Large Land.

Measuring The World
13,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Measuring the World recreates the parallel but contrasting lives of two geniuses of the German Enlightenment - the naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt and the mathematician and physicist Carl Friedrich Gauss. Towards the end of the 18th century, these two brilliant young Germans set out to measure the world.Humboldt, a Prussian aristocrat schooled for greatness, negotiates savannah and jungle, climbs the highest mountain then known to man, counts head lice on the heads of the natives, and explores every hole in the ground.Gauss, a man born in poverty who will be recognised as the greatest mathematician since Newton, does not even need to leave his home in Göttingen to know that space is curved. He can run prime numbers in his head, cannot imagine a life without women and yet jumps out of bed on his wedding night to jot down a mathematical formula.Measuring the World is a novel of rare charm and readability, distinguished by its sly humour and unforgettable characterization. It brings the two eccentric geniuses to life, their longings and their weaknesses, their balancing act between loneliness and love, absurdity and greatness, failure and success.

'If you enjoyed Cat Person, this is for you' Evening StandardThe truth was that if a woman bit a man in an office environment, there would be a strong assumption that the man had done something to deserve it . . .From the creator of Cat Person - the first short story to go viral - comes You Know You Want This, a compulsive collection about sex, dating and modern life. These are stories of women's lives now. They also happen to be horror stories. In some, women endure the horror. In others, they inflict it.Here are women at work, at home, on dates, at the doctor's, with their families and with their friends. Here are women grappling with desire, punishment, guilt and anger. These are stories that make you feel fascinated but repelled, scared but delighted, revolted but aroused.You Know You Want This shows why Kristen Roupenian is the most audacious new voice in American fiction. Funny, furious, sly and explicit, she takes a long, hard look at the messed-up power dynamic between men and women - and messes it up some more.
