A Wolf in the Attic: Even though she was only two, the little girl knew she must never go into the attic. Strange noises came from there. Mama said there was a wolf upstairs, a hungry, dangerous wolf . . . but the truth was far more dangerous than that. Much too dangerous to tell a Jewish child marked for death. One cannot mourn what one doesn’t acknowledge, and one cannot heal if one does not mourn . . . A Wolf in the Attic is a powerful memoir written by a psychoanalyst who was a hidden child in Poland during World War II. Her story, in addition to its immediate impact, illustrates her struggle to come to terms with the powerful yet sometimes subtle impact of childhood trauma. In the author's words: “As a very young child I experienced the Holocaust in a way that made it almost impossible to integrate and make sense of the experience. For me, there was no life before the war, no secure early childhood to hold in mind, no context in which to place what was happening to me and around me. The Holocaust was in the air that I breathed daily for the first four years of my life. I took it in deeply without awareness or critical judgment. I ingested it with the milk I drank from my mother’s breast. It had the taste of fear and despair.” Born during the Holocaust in what was once a part of Poland, Sophia Richman spent her early years in hiding in a small village near Lwów, the city where she was born. Hidden in plain sight, both she and her mother passed as Christian Poles. Later, her father, who escaped from a concentration camp, found them and hid in their attic until the liberation. The story of the miraculous survival of this Jewish family is only the beginning of their long journey out of the Holocaust. The war years are followed by migration and displacement as the refugees search for a new homeland. They move from Ukraine to Poland to France and eventually settle in America. A Wolf in the Attic traces the effects of the author’s experiences on her role as an American teen, a wife, a mother, and eventually, a psychoanalyst. A Wolf in the Attic explores the impact of early childhood trauma on the author’s: education career choices attitudes toward therapy, both as patient and therapist social interactions love/family relationships parenting style and decisions regarding her daughter religious orientation Repeatedly told by her parents that she was too young to remember the war years, Sophia spent much of her life trying to ”remember to forget” what she did indeed remember. A Wolf in the Attic follows her life as she gradually becomes able to reclaim her past, to understand its impact on her life and the choices she has made, and finally, to heal a part of herself that she had been so long taught to deny.

1920s OXFORD: HOME TO C.S. LEWIS, J.R.R. TOLKIEN... AND ANNA FRANCIS, A YOUNG GREEK REFUGEE LOOKING TO ESCAPE THE GRIM REALITY OF HER NEW LIFE. THE NIGHT THEY CROSS PATHS, NONE SUSPECT THE FANTASTIC WORLD AT WORK AROUND THEM. Anna Francis lives in a tall old house with her father and her doll Penelope. She is a refugee, a piece of flotsam washed up in England by the tides of the Great War and the chaos that trailed in its wake. Once upon a time, she had a mother and a brother, and they all lived together in the most beautiful city in the world, by the shores of Homer’s wine-dark sea. But that is all gone now, and only to her doll does she ever speak of it, because her father cannot bear to hear. She sits in the shadows of the tall house and watches the rain on the windows, creating worlds for herself to fill out the loneliness. The house becomes her own little kingdom, an island full of dreams and half-forgotten memories. And then one winter day, she finds an interloper in the topmost, dustiest attic of the house. A boy named Luca with yellow eyes, who is as alone in the world as she is. That day, she’ll lose everything in her life, and find the only real friend she may ever know.

Arturo, der Fischjunge, ist der Star des Familienzirkus. Sein rhetorisches Talent begeistert die Zuschauer so sehr, dass sie ihn wie einen Gott verehren und alles geben würden, um zu werden wie er. Am meisten aber liebt ihn seine Schwester Olympia, sie steht auch dann noch zu ihm, als er die siamesischen Zwillinge gegeneinander aufbringt, als er skrupellos die magischen Fähigkeiten des Nesthäkchens Chick für seine Zwecke missbraucht. Es ist Olympia, die buckelige Albino-Zwergin, die uns von ihrer Familie erzählt, von ihren Eltern, die sich durch unfassbare Experimente eine genetisch mutierte Freakshow heranzüchten. Sie berichtet von Geschwisterliebe und -konkurrenz, vom Kampf um Anerkennung in einer Welt des Über-Besonderen. Als Arturo in seinem Größenwahn kaum mehr zu halten ist, entwickelt sich ein dramatisches Spiel zwischen fanatischer Hingabe und mörderischer Abscheu. Dutzende wunderlich-bezaubernde Figuren hinterfragen unsere Vorstellung von „Selbst“ und dem „Anderen“, normal und unnormal, Perfektion und Deformation. Was ist Schönheit? Und was ist die moderne Familie wert?

"As a little boy, I had a dream that my father had taken me to the woods where there was a dead body. He buried it and told me I must never tell. It was the only thing we'd ever done together as father and son, and I promised not to tell. But unlike most dreams, the memory of this one never left me. And sometimes...I wasn't altogether sure about one thing: was it just a dream?" When Augusten Burroughs was small, his father was a shadowy presence in his life: a form on the stairs, a cough from the basement, a silent figure smoking a cigarette in the dark. As Augusten grew older, something sinister within his father began to unfurl. Something dark and secretive that could not be named. Betrayal after shocking betrayal ensued, and Augusten's childhood was over. The kind of father he wanted didn't exist for him. This father was distant, aloof, uninterested... And then the "games" began. With A Wolf at the Table, Augusten Burroughs makes a quantum leap into untapped emotional terrain: the radical pendulum swing between love and hate, the unspeakably terrifying relationship between father and son. Told with scorching honesty and penetrating insight, it is a story for anyone who has ever longed for unconditional love from a parent. Though harrowing and brutal, A Wolf at the Table will ultimately leave you buoyed with the profound joy of simply being alive. It's a memoir of stunning psychological cruelty and the redemptive power of hope.

Neurowissenschaftler Chuck Brenton möchte Menschen helfen. Er arbeitet an einem Verfahren, das es erlaubt, über Gehirnströme unmittelbar mit Computern zu interagieren, und so etwaige Einschränkungen des menschlichen Körpers durch Krankheit oder Verletzung zu überwinden. Als sich unerwartete Erfolge einstellen, werden mächtige Gruppierungen mit unbegrenzten Ressourcen auf das Forschungsvorhaben aufmerksam. Doch einige wollen die neuen Möglichkeiten für ihre Zwecke missbrauchen und so sehen sich Chuck und seine Mitstreiter schließlich einer nie geahnten Bedrohung gegenüber. Eine Bedrohung, die das Ende der Welt bedeuten könnte, wie wir sie kennen ... "Die Gotteswelle hat ein ganz neues Spielfeld für alle von uns erschaffen. Und für manche könnte es mehr als ein Spiel sein." The Wall Street Journal "Die Gotteswelle ist ein erwachsener Sci-Fi-Thriller in bester Michael- Crichton-Tradition." Barnes & Nobles Sci-Fi & Fantasy-Blog "Patrick Hemstreets Debüt ist ein Thrillerfeuerwerk, das man in einem Rutsch lesen will, und das einen nachhaltigen Eindruck hinterlässt." James Rollins, New York Times-Bestsellerautor "Die Gotteswelle ist eine atemberaubende "Was wäre wenn”-Story mit cooler Technik und Charakteren, die man einfach mögen muss. Ein unterhaltsamer und verstörend glaubhafter Vorstoß in die Parawissenschaften. Legt euch nicht mit den Zetas an!" Sylvain Neuvel, Autor von "Giants - Sie sind erwacht"
