Unique, simple approach to the complicated college prep process, from the leading authority in college admissions. Getting ready for college is a complicated and confusing process - how do you know when to take the SAT? When do you start applying to schools? What classes should you be taking to help prepare you for college-level work? Is there anything you should do before high school? Fiske Countdown to College is a comprehensive collection of simple, easy-to-use checklists that explain everything you need to do in each year of high school to make preparation for college a breeze. There are 28 "to-do" lists for parents and students, ten "don't" lists, three "top 10" lists, and two glossaries, divided by year, that walk you through high school to college. Quotes from students, parents, and counselors offer advice and support from people who've been through all of this before.

Siri Hustvedt kehrt in diesem Roman in die New Yorker Kunstwelt aus ihrem berühmtesten Buch «Was ich liebte» zurück. «Die gleißende Welt» ist der Titel eines utopischen Romans von Margaret Cavendish, die im 17. Jahrhundert als eine der ersten Frauen überhaupt unter ihrem eigenen Namen publizierte. Als frühe Universalgelehrte ist sie Vorbild und Idol von Harriett Burden, der Witwe eines einflussreichen New Yorker Galeristen. Nach dessen vorzeitigem Tod in den siebziger Jahren beginnt Harriett – in der öffentlichen Wahrnehmung nichts als die Frau an der Seite des berühmten Mannes, aber in Wahrheit hochtalentiert – ein heimliches Experiment: eine Karriere als Installationskünstlerin, die sich hinter dem angeblichen Werk dreier männlicher «Masken» verbirgt, das in Wahrheit sie selbst erschaffen hat. Doch der faustische Handel schlägt fehl - einer dieser Maskenmänner, selbst ein bekannter Künstler, durchkreuzt ihr Rollenspiel und setzt sein eigenes dagegen, und es kommt zum Kampf zweier großer Geister. Das Buch ist ein Konzert widerstreitender Stimmen, eine polyphone Tour de Force über die Macht von Vorurteilen, Begierde, Geld und Ruhm. Es versammelt alle großen Themen Siri Hustvedts aus Literatur, Kunst, Psychologie und Naturwissenschaften. Ein mutiges, schillerndes Meisterstück.

"Nella Larsens Roman "Seitenwechsel" ist das Gegenstück zu Scott Fitzgeralds "Der große Gatsby"." Irene Redfield flieht vor der Hitze eines heißen Sommertages ins Dachrestaurant des Drayton Hotels in Chicago. Sie traut ihren Augen kaum, als sie hier ihre Freundin aus Kindertagen wiedertrifft. Clare Kendry ist nach dem frühen Tod ihres Vaters bei weißen Verwandten aufgewachsen und der Kontakt zwischen den Freundinnen abgerissen. Zwei Jahre später zieht Clare nach New York und meldet sich bei Irene, die in Harlem lebt, während Clare in der Welt der Weißen zu Hause ist. Clare ist mit einem Rassisten verheiratet, der nicht auch nur entfernt von ihrer schwarzen Herkunft ahnt. Zudem beunruhigt Irene mehr und mehr, daß Clare eine magische Wirkung auf ihren eigenen Ehemann zu haben scheint. Clare, die Wanderin zwischen den Welten, liebt die Gefahr und das Spiel mit dem Feuer - und droht ständig, sich zu verbrennen.
