Set in western equatorial Africa, The Unmentionables opens with a pugnacious monologue warning the audience to get out while they still have a chance to do something really fun - like watch cable television. Those who resist this directive are treated to a biting satire featuring four Americans hoping to "do good in the world": a young Christian missionary and his ex-fiancee, a disenchanted Hollywood actress, and an aging, wealthy businessman and his desperately lonely wife. A fire set at the missionary's home ignites a night of painful disillusionment, as their notions of how to help the locals are exploded by the realities of money, power, and politics. The stakes rise steadily until they are forced to confront the question of the value of a single life.

When scriptwriter Jane Bussmann (South Park, The Fast Show, Brass Eye and Smack the Pony) moved to Hollywood, it was supposed to be the start of something better. But a day job interviewing Paris, Britney and Co. left her trapped in the Golden Age of Stupid. Then she saw a photograph of John Prendergast in Vanity Fair. His day job was ending war. He was also extremely attractive. Jane 'may have inferred she was a Foreign Correspondent', because suddenly she found herself on route to Africa on the trail of this modern-day Indiana Jones. There was one problem: when she got to Uganda John had left. Alone in a war-torn country, appalled by 25,000 child abductions, Jane must investigate the war crime of the century – to make John fancy her. Combining a maverick heroine, an idealist hero, comic disasters and moving tragedy, this is brilliant storytelling by a hugely talented writer. ‘Jane Bussmann’s romantic odyssey from Hollywood to Uganda is the funniest thing we’ve ever read.’ Instyle Hot List ‘a marvellously maverick approach to the investigation of war crimes.’ Marie Claire Five Stars ‘Imagine The Last King of Scotland written by Shazzer from Bridget Jones’s Diary, and you’d still only get halfway to appreciating Jane Bussmann’s funny, incongruous and artlessly perceptive account... this is one of the funniest books I've read for a long while' The Sunday Times 'hilarious and heart-wrenching' The Spectator

When Jane Ryan discovers she's pregnant with twin girls, she faces a heart wrenching decision. On her own and unable to afford to care for both babies, she sees no choice but to keep one and give up the other for adoption. But fourteen years later, Jane's decision comes full circle. "Family is everything." It's one of the first things Isabel, the twin Jane gave up, says when they unexpectedly meet. Without warning, she and her adoptive mother have moved to the town where Jane and her daughter, Harper, live. But are they really family? In the throes of a willful adolescence, Harper is as sullen as Isabel is eager to please. Still, the sisters appear to bond quickly--until unsettling things begin to happen. Disturbing pranks, questionable accidents, strange ailments. Are the girls allies, or enemies? Is Harper acting out, or is Isabel not all she seems? Soon, Jane is convinced there is something darker at work than sibling rivalry. But who is to blame, and is this only the beginning? In a novel that is both suspenseful and deeply emotional, Rosalind Noonan explores the complex challenges of motherhood, and of truly knowing what lies in another's heart--even those we love best.
Doktor Proktor ist ein verrückter Professor. Na ja, beinahe vielleicht - eigentlich ist er ein genialer Erfinder! Es wird schließlich nicht alle Tage ein Pupspulver erfunden, das man sogar als Raketenstarthilfe an die NASA verkaufen könnte. Davon sind zumindest Bulle und Lise fest überzeugt! Wären da bloß nicht die fiesen Zwillinge Truls und Trym, die sich das Pupspulver unter den Nagel reißen wollen.
Whatever people think about Kubrick's work, most would agree that there is something distinctive, even unique, about the films he made: a coolness, an intellectual clarity, a critical edginess, and finally an intractable ambiguity. In an attempt to isolate the Kubrick difference, this book treats Kubrick's films to a conceptual and formal analysis rather than a biographical and chronological survey. As Kubrick's cinema moves between the possibilities of human transcendence dramatized in 2001: A Space Odyssey and the dismal limitations of human nature exhibited in A Clockwork Orange, the filmmaker's style "de-realizes" cinematic realism while, paradoxically, achieving an unprecedented frankness of vision and documentary and technical richness. The result is a kind of vertigo: the audience is made aware of both the de-realized and the realized nature of cinema. As opposed to the usual studies providing a summary and commentary of individual films, this will be the first to provide an analysis of the "elements" of Kubrick's total cinema.
Ruth Messier had been sitting in a special care hospital strapped to a chair for twenty-five years. She couldn't see or hear. She couldn't smell or taste or feel. She had no arms and no legs. Ruth Messier was a bowling ball. Unbeknownst to the torso, a gun-toting teenager killed fourteen patrons of the Thrifty Mart, a gas station just across the street from Ruth's special care hospital. At the same time, a woman ran out on her alcoholic boyfriend and their two cats. Enter Saint Norman, the patron saint of bowling balls. Saint Norman, looking down on the Lanes of Life from his snack bar in the sky. From the author of Womb of Monsters comes a hilarious satirical novel where saints play poker, trees are used to communicate with the dead, and nurses have ninja ability. In this new work, Thomas Aiello takes on religious dogma, the judicial system, and the media as events quickly spiral to a dramatic conclusion. Saint Norman is tragicomedy at its finest.
