The New York Times best-selling author of The Library of Light and Shadow crafts a dazzling Jazz Age jewel - a novel of ambition, betrayal, and passion about a young painter whose traumatic past threatens to derail her career at a prestigious summer artists’ colony run by Louis Comfort Tiffany of Tiffany & Co. fame.New York, 1924. Twenty‑four‑year‑old Jenny Bell is one of a dozen burgeoning artists invited to Louis Comfort Tiffany’s prestigious artists’ colony. Gifted and determined, Jenny vows to avoid distractions and romantic entanglements and take full advantage of the many wonders to be found at Laurelton Hall. But Jenny’s past has followed her to Long Island. Images of her beloved mother, her hard-hearted stepfather, waterfalls, and murder, and the dank hallways of Canada’s notorious Andrew Mercer Reformatory for Women overwhelm Jenny’s thoughts, even as she is inextricably drawn to Oliver, Tiffany’s charismatic grandson. As the summer shimmers on, and the competition between the artists grows fierce as they vie for a spot at Tiffany’s New York gallery, a series of suspicious and disturbing occurrences suggest someone knows enough about Jenny’s childhood trauma to expose her. Supported by her closest friend Minx Deering, a seemingly carefree socialite yet dedicated sculptor, and Oliver, Jenny pushes her demons aside. Between stolen kisses and stolen jewels, the champagne flows and the jazz plays on until one moonless night when Jenny’s past and present are thrown together in a desperate moment, that will threaten her promising future, her love, her friendships, and her very life. 1.

Love In This Time
16,09 € *

Das verflixte siebte Album? Nicht bei Ulita Knaus. Die Sängerin und Songschreiberin, die hier erneut auch als versierte Produzentin antritt, legt mit "Love In This Time", ihrem zweiten Album für Membran und dem Nachfolger ihres hochgelobten "The Moon On My Doorstep", ein so romantisches wie energisches Album vor, einen klangvollen Kompass, der zu den unterschiedlichsten Fragen und Themen weist, die ihr am Herzen liegen. Mit neun Eigenkompositionen und ihrer sehr eigenen Version von Stevie Wonders "Visions" beweist sie sich dabei, trotz modernisierter, elektronischer Klänge, wieder als stimmstarke Self-MadeWoman zwischen Jazz und dem, was man in den Siebzigerjahren, bevor es ein Schimpfwort wurde, Pop nannte. Die Songs auf "Love in this Time" sind mal sinnlich, mal sentimental, dann wieder wütend, übersprudelnd hoffnungsfroh oder kurz vor resigniert. So leicht und sinnlich dabei der Gesang von Ulita Knaus klingt, so charmant und klar und deutlich, auch in den komplexesten Momenten, so angenehm gehen einem diese nicht immer eindeutigen Liebeslieder unter die Haut. Es klingt, als würde die Sängerin nie urteilen, schon gar nicht richten. "Love in This Time" klingt nach Verständnis und Verstand. Auch deshalb ist dieses siebte Album ein ganz großer Wurf, ein potentielles Lieblingsalbum.

My lips are white. Sixteen-year-old Sep stares into the bathroom mirror. It’s not some weird lipstick (she never wears lipstick). Her lips are just - white. In a panic, she digs up an old lipstick and smears it on her colorless lips. But soon, more and more white spots begin to bloom, spreading their chalky tendrils across her olive brown skin. Does she have a disease? Is she turning into some kind of freak? Sep is usually the one who knows all the answers. With a quicksilver mind and a supple body, she’s happiest when she’s delving into the mysteries of animal biology or giving herself over to sweet, hot moves in Jazz Dance Club. Unlike her best friend, Devin, she’s never been in a rush to get a boyfriend. But as the white blotches spread, her dating days - like the endangered species she studies - seem numbered. So when Joshua, a boy she’s always liked, makes a flirty advance, she wonders: Why not grab pleasure while she can? Frank, funny, and full of passion, this is the empowering story of a strong gifted teen who, as her life spins out of control, desperately tries to prove to the world - and herself - that she is deeper than skin. 1.

There Are No Grown-ups

The best-selling author of BRINGING UP BÉBÉ investigates life in her forties, and wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face. When Pamela Druckerman turns 40, waiters start calling her "Madame," and she detects a disturbing new message in mens' gazes: I would sleep with her, but only if doing so required no effort whatsoever. Yet forty isn't even technically middle-aged anymore. And after a lifetime of being clueless, Druckerman can finally grasp the subtext of conversations, maintain (somewhat) healthy relationships and spot narcissists before they ruin her life. What are the modern forties, and what do we know once we reach them? What makes someone a "grown-up" anyway? And why didn't anyone warn us that we'd get cellulite on our arms? Part frank memoir, part hilarious investigation of daily life, There Are No Grown-Ups diagnoses the in-between decade when... • Everyone you meet looks a little bit familiar. • You're matter-of-fact about chin hair. • You can no longer wear anything ironically. • There's at least one sport your doctor forbids you to play. • You become impatient while scrolling down to your year of birth. • Your parents have stopped trying to change you. • You don't want to be with the cool people anymore; you want to be with your people. • You realize that everyone is winging it, some just do it more confidently. • You know that it's ok if you don't like jazz. Internationally best-selling author and New York Times contributor Pamela Druckerman leads us on a quest for wisdom, self-knowledge and the right pair of pants. A witty dispatch from the front lines of the forties, There Are No Grown-ups is a (midlife) coming-of-age story, and a book for anyone trying to find their place in the world.

Selbst Stevie Wonders "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life passt in der Interpretation von Terrasson und Belmondo hier ins ästhetische Gesamtkonzept.Pianist Jacky Terrasson ist längst eine internationale Koryphäe, die man keinem Jazz-Freund mehr vorstellen muss. Stephane Belmondo, der in seiner französischen Heimat eine ähnliche Popularität genießt, wird dieses Duo-Album garantiert zahlreiche neue Fans bescheren.
