        Fakten und Fiktion - Werklexikon deutschsprachiger Schlüsselliteratur 1900 - 2010. Erster Halbband: Andres bis Loest / Zweiter Halbband: Heinrich Mann bis Zwerenz. 2 Bde.

      Stuttgart: Hiersemann 2011/2013. - XX, 406/ XII, 390 S. Lex 8° Ln. *neuwertig* Die Bände auch einzeln lieferbar für jew. 378,- Verschlüsselungen gehören zu den beliebtesten literarischen Kunstgriffen. Im Zentrum dieses Nachschlagewerkes liegen Erzähltexte des 20. Jahrhunderts, in denen historische Personen und Ereignisse eine tragende Rolle spielen, aber von ihren Autoren nicht alle bei ihrem «wirklichen » Namen genannt, also verschlüsselt wurden. Es beantwortet damit die Frage: Wer steht in diesen Romanen und Erzählungen für wen? Ist beispielsweise die fiktionale Darstellung Marcel Reich-Ranickis in Martin Walsers «Tod eines Kritikers» ein einmaliger Fall, der deswegen die Kontroverse im Jahr 2002 auf sich zog? Die Antwort lautet: Nein! Das Lexikon liefert dafür den Nachweis: Verschlüsselungen dieses prominenten Literaturkritikers finden sich auch bei Maxim Biller, Peter Handke, Thomas Hürlimann, Walter Kempowski, Bodo Kirchhoff und Uwe Tellkamp. In dieser Weise lassen sich Künstler, Literaten, Intellektuelle und Politiker in ihren literarischen Spiegelfiguren im Lexikon auffinden. Seine 133 ausführlichen Autorenartikel erfassen zum ersten Mal jene etwa 200 literarischen Werke, in denen historische Personen und Begebenheiten durch spezifische Verschlüsselungsverfahren verhüllt und zugleich erkennbar gemacht werden. Bei den hier vorgestellten Prosaveröffentlichungen handelt es sich einerseits um ‚Schwergewichte‘ der deutschsprachigen Literatur des vergangenen Jahrhunderts, andererseits auch um Texte, die mit der Tagesaktualität ihres Gegenstands zwar schnell verfallen können, die jedoch Einsichten auf die zeitgleichen kanonischen Texte eröffnen. Indem diese Werke die jeweilige Zeitgeschichte in den Erzählkosmos integrieren, werden sie in ihrer Gesamtheit zu einer Bestandsaufnahme der politischen Geschichte und Kulturgeschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts. Die Überschau beginnt mit dem gesellschaftlichen Panorama der Kaiserzeit vor 1914, zu dem die Bohèmezirkel – dargestellt bei H. und Th. Mann, O. J. Bierbaum, H. Essig, E. Reinacher, F. von Reventlow, A. Schaeffer und O. Schmitz – ebenso gehören wie die Innenansichten der Schule (u.a. bei R. Musil) und des Militärs, dessen geschlossene Welt O. Bilse und H. von Schullern beschreiben. Der Weltkrieg zwischen 1914 und 1918 und die neugegründete Weimarer Republik bilden den historischen Hintergrund der Romane von L. Feuchtwanger, A. Kolb, R. Schickele, G. Tergit, F. Werfel und A. Zweig. Einen Schwerpunkt der Beiträge macht die Literatur des Exils und der inneren Emigration aus. Die zwischen 1933 und 1945 in Deutschland verbliebenen Autoren, unter ihnen W. Bergengruen, E. Jünger oder F. Reck-Malleczewen, mussten ihre Kritik in einer scheinbar unverdächtigen Erzählhandlung verbergen. Innerhalb der Exilliteratur überliefern W. Hasenclever, S. Heym, T. T. Heine, K. Mann, S. Morgenstern, J. Roth, W.G. Sebald, A. Seghers, E. Weiß und G. Weisenborn in ihren Büchern Alltagserfahrungen und persönliche Schicksale, die erst nach der Rekonstruktion ihre authentisch gedeckte Materialfülle erkennen lassen. Eine lange Spur bildet die Aufarbeitung des Nationalsozialismus in den deutschsprachigen Literaturen nach 1945. Auffällig häufi g beschäftigen sich Texte mit drei Phasen der bundesdeutschen Politik und Geschichte: mit der Studentenbewegung und dem gesellschaftlichen Aufbruch von 1968, den terroristischen Anschlägen 1977 und den Folgen dieses ‚Deutschen Herbstes‘ sowie mit der Maueröffnung und den Geschehnissen bei und nach der Wiedervereinigung der beiden deutschen Staaten 1989/90. - Innerhalb der Nachkriegsliteratur wird hier zum ersten Mal die Literatur der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik (DDR) unter dem Aspekt untersucht, wie und in welchen Formen sie unter den Bedingungen der Zensur die politischen und gesellschaftlichen Zustände erzählend aufnahm und diese in ‚äsopischer Sprache‘ darstellte. Die Autorenbeiträge bieten nach einem Inhaltsabriss der besprochenen Titel eine Werkanalyse, die v.a. das Zusammenspiel der historischen u

      Sphere 2013 - The uncorrected proof of the first UK edition of this mystery by J. K. Rowling. Fine in wrappers and a fine custom-made collector's slipcase. The book was critically well received, but then became a smash bestseller when the true identity of the author was inadvertently revealed by Rowling's attorney. One must assume the printing on the first UK edition, and especially this advanced proof, was tiny compared to a typical Rowling offering. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Elephant Lullaby.

      Poestenkill, NY Kaldewey Press 2013 - Oblong elephant folio. (14)ff., accordionfold. One of thirty-six copies. Printed in silver ink, with illustrations of elephants, on deep red handmade paper. The text is a poem written in Thai, and an English translation is provided on a separate sheet of paper accompanying the book. In Thailand, for many centuries, whenever rare white elepants were found, they were tamed in order to be presented to the kings. In the Introduction to the book, Kaldewey explains that the elephants were presented to court in a ceremony that included music and dance. "For each of them the court poet composes a special welcoming lullaby," one of which is presented here. The lullaby compells the elephant not to miss her past in the forest, as "There is much discomfort in the forest, but bliss reigns in the city. Blame no one, for your fate as the royal elephant has been decided by Brahma himself. The gods deem you fit for His Majesty, and we will care for you as such." Bound by Thomas Zwang in traditional Thai style, with paper-covered boards stamped with the title in silver, and enclosed in a heavily-textured handmade-paper chemise. Housed in a gray paper-covered slipcase. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case. Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model's complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger .A gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London - from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the backstreet pubs of the East End to the bustle of Soho - The Cuckoo's Calling is a remarkable book. Introducing Cormoran Strike, this is a classic crime novel in the tradition of P. D. James and Ruth Rendell, and marks the beginning of a unique series of mysteries.

        Just So Stories - SIGNED BY ARTIST

      Folio Press London 2013 - This is the most elaborate of these special limited editions. Every detail has been carefully considered and created using the finest materials. Each volume is quarter-bound in vellum, the spine blocked in 22-carat gold. The binding vividly depicts the Leopard in four different metallic foils. Altogether we used six different paper types and worked with five printing houses, each with expertise in specific media and techniques. As you will see from the enclosed brochure, each copy also features a hand-printed etching of the Painted Jaguar, hand-numbered and signed by the artist. It has been tipped in by hand and set within a decorative gold border, with the adjacent page printed letterpress to achieve a harmonious typographic arrangement. It was important to us to find an introducer who had a strong personal connection with the stories – someone who would reflect the nostalgia that so many people, myself included, feel for them. Former Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo expresses these sentiments beautifully in his introduction, with his abiding memories of hearing the book read aloud by his mother. Morpurgo has also said that without this experience, he would never have become a children’s writer himself – and anyone who has loved War Horse, Private Peaceful or any of Morpurgo’s many stories, knows how great a loss that would have been.
