While nursing some drinks after a terrible day at work, Tucker Candle spits out his rum and coke when a stranger across the bar turns water into wine. But did he? Or was it just an alcohol-induced trick of the light? This stranger has a warning for Candle: skip your planned business trip tomorrow. If you go, I won't be able to protect you any longer. With a clear head the next morning, Candle resumes his normal life, working for a company that's about to lay him off. That barroom huckster couldn't have been magical, or prophetic. He was just some washed-up weirdo with a few tricks. But when Candle comes back from his trip to find his pregnant wife missing and a dead man's blood seeping into his bathroom floor, the washed-up weirdo's counsel doesn't seem so foreign now. Cops, friends, family... Candle doesn't trust anyone. As he searches for his wife, people around him keep turning up murdered. If he can't find her and uncover the mystery driving the chaos, the stranger's words might come true, after all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Coon.

Grower's Market: A Novel of Free Enterprise in ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Grower's Market is set in remote marijuana country peopled with characters whose backgrounds are diverse and whose futures are uncertain. Sunbeam, who entered adult life as a 1960s San Francisco hippie girl, moved north searching for peace and quiet in unspoiled nature. Eventually she ended up running the Bird of Prey Tavern and growing enough weed to support her tranquil life. The men who eventually work for her - Shadow, Shrimp, Stones, Toon, and Shakespeare - are combat veterans searching for some of the same things Sunbeam found. A Vietnam vet named Case, a widower, is Sunbeam's neighbor. Living on the top floor of the tavern is Rainbow, a runaway from Texas who tends bar and nurses her husband, a quadriplegic known as Uncle Sam. Shadow and Shrimp plan to take the money they've earned growing weed and open a restaurant. Shakespeare is hard at work on a novel about a hero named Superpenis, modeled after the cartoon character Plastic Man, and a New York publisher is interested. The heavily tattooed Toon sees himself as a living visual symbol of a world gone mad, and Stones has fallen in love with a virtual stranger at a homeless shelter. But now in the second decade of the 21st century, new people have arrived to claim space in the quiet valleys, next to the clear-flowing creeks, along the green mountainsides. They are large-scale growers, armed gangs, corrupt cops, and drug cartels, and violence and death come with them. Shadow, Shrimp, Shakespeare, Toon, and Stones must defend their turf against more heavily armed men who don't mind declaring war to claim this marijuana country as their own. 1. Language: English.

Mit nie zuvor auf CD releasten Tracks! Germany is one of those countries, which's music has been making a huge impact on the rest of the World for last few centuries. In the 1970s the electronic music scene in Germany has been revolutionized by Kraftwerk and since their first appearance nothing remained the same anymore. Germany became one of the World leaders of the electronic music, delivering fresh, innovative and catchy productions, at every genre, on every field, at any time. In the early 80s the Neue Deutsche Welle was strongly competing with Great Britain's New Romantic, giving the World such great acts as Alphaville, Peter Schilling, Nena, Hubert Kah, Joachim Witt and many more. The 80s European dance music scene has been also flooded with electronic German acts like Sandra, Modern Talking, Bad Boys Blue, Silent Circle, Mike Mareen, Fancy or Lian Ross. The sound of the German synthesizer music became famous in every part of the Globe. This compilation is tribute to German 80s music and it delivers a mixture of synth pop and disco, mainstream and underground, well known and obscure, unique collector's gems and floor fillers, with a few tracks being released on CD for the first time in music history. In the booklet, next to front sleeve reproductions, you will find a few interesting sentences about each track in German and English. TRACKS: 1. MIKE MAREEN - GERMANY (Original 12 Version) 5:44 2. ALPHAVILLE - JERUSALEM (Palace Version) 6:17 3. PASO DOBLE - COMPUTERLIEBE (Special Disco Version) 7:24 4. ANOUSCHKA RENZI - ROBOT LOVE (Original 12 Version) 6:43 5.

Glass House
81,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the beginning, my work was devoted not to despair but rather to the courage and imagination with which people face adversity, the ways they manage to build makeshift structures and find warmth and community. I try to show that the term 'homeless' is a misnomer that blinds us from seeing how people preserve their sense of home and identity while struggling for survival at the margins of society. How does Glass House fit into your earlier work? Unlike my other books, which are about adults, Glass House focuses upon a group of young people--some were runaways-who in 1993 established a communal home in an abandoned glass factory on Manhattan's Lower East Side. How did you find out about Glass House and get access to the community? I learned about Glass House from a homeless man whom I had photographed. He introduced me to Gentle Spike, one of the members of the community, who told me to meet him at Avenue D and East 10th Street on a Sunday night at 9 PM. 'If no one is there,' he said, 'just yell 'Glass House.'' When I arrived at the seven-story building that next Sunday, it was completely dark and looked deserted. I waited a few minutes, then yelled 'Glass House.' Silence. I yelled again. Suddenly, a thick chain came hurtling down. I had the keys. I found my way to the second floor and a dimly lit, unheated room where about thirty-five people between the ages of seventeen and twenty-two were conducting what they called a 'house meeting.' 'A stranger, a documentarian,' was on the agenda. I showed them a copy of my first book, Transitory Gardens, Uprooted Lives. Discussion, a show of hands, then a woman slammed a sledgehammer on a table: I had been given permission to take photographsand conduct interviews as they continued their lives in this derelict brick building. After that night and for the next four months, I attended Thursday workdays, Sunday night house meetings, and met with individual residents. Why do you think they accepted you? These young m

The Other Mrs Walker
12,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Waterstones Scottish Book of the Year. The Other Mrs Walker is the beguiling debut from Mary Paulson-Ellis, for fans of Kate Atkinson and Sarah Waters. Somehow she'd always known that she would end like this. In a small square room, in a small square flat. In a small square box, perhaps. Cardboard, with a sticker on the outside. And a name . . . An old lady dies alone and unheeded in a cold Edinburgh flat on a snowy Christmas night. A faded emerald dress hangs in her wardrobe; a spilt glass of whisky pools on the floor. A few days later a middle-aged woman arrives back in the city she thought she'd left behind, her future uncertain, her past in tatters. She soon finds herself a job at the Office for Lost People, tracking down the families of those who have died neglected and alone. But what Margaret Penny cannot yet know, is just how entangled her own life will become in the death of one lonely stranger . . . 'One of the strongest debuts of the year' Herald 'Full of twists and turns' Independent 'A wonderful, inventive debut . . . I can't wait to see what this author has up her sleeve next' Fanny Blake, Daily Mail
