Ein Labyrinth voller Geheimnisse Barcelona in den turbulenten Jahren vor dem Bürgerkrieg: Der junge David Martín fristet sein Leben als Autor von Schauergeschichten. Als ernsthafter Schriftsteller verkannt, von einer tödlichen Krankheit bedroht und um die Liebe seines Lebens betrogen, scheinen seine großen Erwartungen sich in nichts aufzulösen. Doch einer glaubt an sein Talent: Der mysteriöse Verleger Andreas Corelli macht ihm ein Angebot, das Verheißung und Versuchung zugleich ist. David kann nicht widerstehen und ahnt nicht, in wessen Bann er gerät – und in welchen Strudel furchterregender Ereignisse ... Mit unwiderstehlicher erzählerischer Kraft lockt uns Carlos Ruiz Zafón wieder auf den Friedhof der Vergessenen Bücher: mitten hinein in einen Kosmos voller Spannung und Fantastik, Freundschaft und Liebe, Schrecken und Intrige. In eine Welt, die vom diabolischen Wunsch nach ewiger Schönheit regiert wird.

Wenn David auf Goliath trifft, hat er zwei Möglichkeiten: Spielt er nach dessen Regeln, wird er verlieren. Ist er bereit, die Regeln der Macht zu brechen, zwingt er den Riesen damit in die Knie. Malcolm Gladwell ist davon überzeugt: Underdogs sind Gewinner! In genialen Episoden von listigen Kriegsherren, halbstarken Basketballteams und inspirierten Softwareentwicklern zeigt der Kultautor, dass Triumph keine Frage der Größe, sondern der inneren Haltung ist. Gladwells hintersinniges Plädoyer für das Große im Kleinen ist zugleich ein Appell zum kreativen Ungehorsam. Nach der Lektüre dieses verblüffenden Buchs ist kein Riese mehr vor Ihnen sicher.

«Das Geheimnis der verlorenen Zeit» ist einer der megalomanischsten Romane der jüngeren amerikanischen Literaturgeschichte: ein gewitzter, raffinierter Mix aus Wissenschaft, Philosophie, Pop und Unterhaltung. Ein wilder Abenteuertrip, vom Wien der Jahrhundertwende bis ins Manhattan der Gegenwart, von der ersten Dimension in die vierte. Eingeschlossen in einer Blase angehaltener Zeit sitzt der junge Waldemar Tolliver in einem vermüllten Apartment am Central Park in New York und versucht, Herr seiner Geschichte zu werden. (Aber vielleicht hat er auch nur zu viel Science-Fiction gelesen.) Über hundert Jahre Familiengeschichte muss er erforschen und verstehen, um wieder in die Welt zurückkehren zu können. (Glaubt er.) Ein grandioses Panorama breitet sich aus: Waldemars Urgroßvater, Produzent eingelegter Gurken und Hobbyphysiker aus dem k.u.k. Znaim, war dem Geheimnis der Zeit auf der Spur. Nein, besser noch: dem Geheimnis menschlicher Reisen durch die Zeit! Leider gingen die Unterlagen bei einem dummen Unfall mit einem Automobil verloren. Drei Generationen von Tollivers – Genies, Kriminelle, Verlierer, Visionäre – ruhen fortan nicht, das Geheimnis zu lüften, obwohl bald ein deutscher Patentamtsangestellter namens Einstein mit ganz ähnlichen Theorien Schlagzeilen machen wird ... Um es mit Jonathan Lethem zu sagen: «John Wray ist die nächste Welle der amerikanischen Literatur.»

Eine Frau, die alles hat. Ein Junge, dem alles fehlt. Eine untrennbare Freundschaft. Laura ist eine erfolgreiche Verkaufsleiterin, die an einem normalen Montag durch die Straßen von New York hetzt. Sie hat keine Zeit, achtet kaum auf ihre Mitmenschen – auch nicht auf den kleinen Jungen, der sie um Kleingeld anbettelt. Sie ist schon an der nächsten Straßenecke, als sie plötzlich stehen bleibt – und umkehrt. Sie kauft dem hungrigen Maurice etwas zu essen und erfährt von seinem Leben. Von dem Tag an treffen sich Maurice und Laura jede Woche über Jahre hinweg, immer montags. Dies ist die Geschichte ihrer einzigartigen Freundschaft – die bis heute anhält.
