De i utkanten älskande - , Preview:

En man som vill vara kvinna går en dag in på Kafé Utkanten och beställer en kopp kaffe. Flickan bakom disken drömmer om att bli fotomodell och kan inte sätta gränser för sin kropp. Hennes far drabbas av cancer och hennes mor längtar hem till kamelernas land. Det är het, kvalmig sommar i Stockholm. I en annan del av staden sitter en gatumusikant. Han ser människors sorg överallt och förälskar sig i en deprimerad kvinnlig tjuv. De i utkanten älskande är en roman om några udda, ensamma människor som alltmer desperat sträcker sig efter varandra i en lång kedja av kärlek som sneglar åt alla håll utom det rätta. Det är en berättelse fylld av svärta men också av hopp och galenskap och en befriande närhet till skratt. De i utkanten älskande belönades 2004 med Per Wästberg-priset. Omslagsformgivare: Lilian Bäckman.

SOS från mänskligheten - Johanna Nilsson Preview:

Vad, och vem, är Benjamin, han som tatuerar in blommor på överkroppen - en blomma för var och en som han har älskat och kanske räddat till ett bättre liv?I sina föräldrars ögon är han en mördare, en förrädare. I kundernas ögon är han en skicklig eskort som flera av dem förälskar sig i och finner tröst hos: Mikael, affärsmannen som inte vill ha beröring, bara sömn, och vissheten om att någon vakar över honom. Erika, den högpresterande karriärkvinnan som älskar sin sambo men inte orkar med hans barn, inte står ut med "kärlekskonkurrensen". Och så Katja, den rullstolsbundna tatuererskan som dyrkar Benjamins hud. Katja, som drömmer om luft under vingarna och ett barn att bära i famnen.Alla läsare av den prisbelönta De i utkanten älskande från 2005 kommer att känna igen sig i Johanna Nilssons nya roman, även om hon den här gången gräver ännu djupare i den mänskliga själens mörker. SOS från mänskligheten är en samtidsberättelse som rör sig mellan samhällets alla skikt och ställer frågor om ondskans ursprung, om godhetens och kärlekens gränser och om modet att ta kommandot över sitt eget liv, istället för att stå bredvid och se det passera..

Jag är Leopardpojkens dotter - Johanna Nilsson Preview:

"Det känns ibland som om jag håller på att betala av en skuld genom att skriva detta. För varje ord, varje mening, krymper skulden. Till pappa. Till Sverker. Till farmor och farfar och Bengta. Till alla missionärsbarn som blev lämnade för Guds skull och till deras föräldrar som lämnade dem och led helvetets kval och ångrade sig och kände skuld, men ändå stannade ute på fältet, ty det var Guds vilja."Jag är leopardpojkens dotter är en berättelse om den kristna övertygelsen och kallet att hjälpa utsatta människor till ett bättre liv. För de vuxna missionärerna var det ett meningsfullt livsval, men för deras barn som fick tillbringa långa perioder på internatskolor var barndomen inte alltid en dans på rosor. Med hjälp av brev, dagböcker, fotografier, egna och andras minnen, målar Johanna Nilsson upp en färgsprakande och avslöjande bild av sina farföräldrars missionärsliv i Kongo under första halvan av förra seklet.Fram träder en samling levande och kärleksfulla släktporträtt, men även en hjärtskärande berättelse om hur valet mellan Gud och familjen så starkt kom att prägla deras och kommande generationers liv. Johanna Nilsson är född 1973. Jag är leopardpojkens dotter är hennes sjätte roman sedan debuten 1996 med den uppmärksammade Hon går genom tavlan, ut ur bilden. Hon skriver även barn- och ungdomsböcker samt dramatik. Förra romanen, De i Utkanten älskande (2005), utsågs till 2005 års stockholmsskildring och kommer även att filmatiseras. Omslagsformgivare: Sara R. Acedo.

Embassytown - China Miéville Preview:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In the far future, humans have colonized a distant planet, home to the enigmatic Ariekei, sentient beings famed for a language unique in the universe, one that only a few altered human ambassadors can speak. Avice Benner Cho, a human colonist, has returned to Embassytown after years of deep-space adventure. She cannot speak the Ariekei tongue, but she is an indelible part of it, having long ago been made a figure of speech, a living simile in their language. When distant political machinations deliver a new ambassador to Arieka, the fragile equilibrium between humans and aliens is violently upset. Catastrophe looms, and Avice is torn between competing loyalties: to a husband she no longer loves, to a system she no longer trusts, and to her place in a language she cannot speak—but which speaks through her, whether she likes it or not. Praise for Embassytown “A breakneck tale of suspense . . . disturbing and beautiful by turns. I cannot emphasize enough how terrific this novel is. It's definitely one of the best books I've read in the past year, perfectly balanced between escapism and otherworldly philosophizing.”—io9 “Embassytown is a fully achieved work of art. . . . Works on every level, providing compulsive narrative, splendid intellectual rigour and risk, moral sophistication, fine verbal fireworks and sideshows, and even the old-fashioned satisfaction of watching a protagonist become more of a person than she gave promise of being.”—Ursula K Le Guin “The Kafkaesque writer journeys to the distant edges of the universe in his latest sci-fi thriller.”—Entertainment Weekly “Utterly astonishing . . . A major intellectual achievement.”—Kirkus Reviews “Brilliant storytelling . . . The result is a world masterfully wrecked and rebuilt.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review).

Hjältars Väg (Första Boken Av Trollkarlens Ring) - Morgan Rice Preview:

“TROLLKARLENS RING har allt som krävs för att bli en riktig succé: intriger och motintriger, mysterier, tappra riddare och spirande förälskelser, brustna hjärtan och svek. Det här är många timmars underhållning, och något för alla åldrar. Ett måste i varje fantasyläsares bokhylla.” --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos #1 På topplistan! En ny, fantastisk fantasyserie från bästsäljarförfattaren Morgan Rice! HJÄLTARS VÄG (första delen av TROLLKARLENS RING) är den storslagna berättelsen om en alldeles särskild pojke, en fjortonåring från en liten by i utkanten av Ringens kungarike. Yngst av fyra syskon, minst omtyckt av sin far och avskydd av sina tre bröder har Thorgrin en känsla av att han är annorlunda. Han drömmer om att en dag bli en stor krigare, om att bli en av kungens män och skydda Ringen från de vilda horder av fiender som lever på den andra sidan Klyftan. När han väl har åldern inne, men förbjuds av sin far att ens försöka bli uttagen till kungens legion så vägrar han att ge upp: han ger sig av på egen hand, fast besluten att ta sig till Kungsgård för att bli tagen på allvar. Men Kungsgård är en plats full av familjeintriger, maktkamp, ambitioner, avund, våld och svek. Kung MacGil måste välja ett av sina barn till arvinge, och det uråldriga Ödessvärdet – källan till all makt – ligger fortfarande orört, i väntan på att den utvalde skall komma. Thorgrin är en främling och kämpar för att bli accepterad och tas in i Legionen. Thorgrin inser att han har märkliga krafter som han inte ens själv kan förstå, att han har en särskild gåva och ett särskilt öde. Mot alla odds förälskar han sig i kungens dotter, och fastän deras förbjudna kärlek växer så upptäcker han att han har mäktiga rivaler. När han kämpar för att förstå sina krafter tas han i beskydd av kungens trollkarl, som berättar om den mor han aldrig träffat, i ett land långt i fjärran, bortom Klyftan och till och med bortom drakarnas land. Innan Thorgrin kan ge sig ut i världen för att bli den krigare han önskar måste han först avsluta sin träning. Men allt kan ta slut redan innan det börjat eftersom han kastas rakt in i kungahusets intriger och ränker som hotar att ta ifrån honom hans kärlek och förgöra honom – och hela kungariket. HJÄLTARS VÄG erbjuder ett sofistikerat världsbygge och spännande karaktärer. Det är en storslagen berättelse om vänner och älskande, rivaler och friare, riddare och drakar, intriger, politiska ränker, om att bli vuxen och brustna hjärtan, ambitioner och svek. Det är en berättelse om mod, om att finna sitt öde och om trolldom. Det är fantasy som för läsaren till en helt oförglömlig värld och som tilltalar alla åldrar och kön. Boken är 80000 ord. ”Eldfängd fantasy med en berättelse full av intriger och mysterier. Hjältars väg handlar i grunden om kampen för att växa i mod och leva för erfarenhet, personlig mognad och perfektion… För de som är på jakt efter ett rejält fantasyäventyr så levererar berättelsens huvudpersoner, berättargrepp och action en fartfylld räcka händelser som beskriver Thors utveckling från drömsk pojke till ung vuxen i kamp mot omöjliga odds för sin överlevnad… Och det här är bara början i vad som lovar att bli en helt storslagen serie för unga vuxna. --Midwest Book Review (D.

A Quest of Heroes (Book #1 in the Sorcerer's Ring) - Morgan Rice Preview:

“A breathtaking new epic fantasy series. Morgan Rice does it again! This magical saga reminds me of the best of J.K. Rowling, George R.R. Martin, Rick Riordan, Christopher Paolini and J.R.R. Tolkien. I couldn’t put it down!” --Allegra Skye, Bestselling author of SAVED From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes the debut of a dazzling new fantasy series. A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1 IN THE SORCERER’S RING) revolves around the epic coming of age story of one special boy, a 14 year old from a small village on the outskirts of the Kingdom of the Ring. The youngest of four, the least favorite of his father, hated by his brothers, Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King’s men and protecting the Ring from the hordes of creatures on the other side of the Canyon. When he comes of age and is forbidden by his father to try out for the King’s Legion, he refuses to take no for an answer: he journeys out on his own, determined to force his way into King’s Court and be taken seriously. But King’s Court is rife with its own family dramas, power struggles, ambitions, jealousy, violence and betrayal. King MacGil must choose an heir from amongst his children, and the ancient Dynasty Sword, the source of all their power, still sits untouched, waiting for the chosen one to arrive. Thorgrin arrives as an outsider and battles to be accepted, and to join the King’s Legion. Thorgrin comes to learn he has mysterious powers he does not understand, that he has a special gift, and a special destiny. Against all odds he falls in love with the king’s daughter, and as their forbidden relationship blossoms, he discovers he has powerful rivals. As he struggles to make sense of his powers, the king’s sorcerer takes him under his wing and tells him of a mother he never knew, in a land far away, beyond the Canyon, beyond even the land of the Dragons. Before Thorgrin can venture out and become the warrior he yearns to be, he must complete his training. But this may be cut short, as he finds himself propelled into the center of royal plots and counterplots, ones that may threaten his love and bring him down—and the entire kingdom with him. With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A QUEST OF HEROES is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is a tale of honor and courage, of fate and destiny, of sorcery. It is a fantasy that brings us into a world we will never forget, and which will appeal to all ages and genders. It is 82,000 words. Book #2 in the series, A MARCH OF KINGS, is now available, too. “Grabbed my attention from the beginning and did not let go....This story is an amazing adventure that is fast paced and action packed from the very beginning. There is not a dull moment to be found.” --Paranormal Romance Guild {regarding Turned} “Jam packed with action, romance, adventure, and suspense. Get your hands on this one and fall in love all over again.” --vampirebooksite.com (regarding Turned) “A great plot, and this especially was the kind of book you will have trouble putting down at night. The ending was a cliffhanger that was so spectacular that you will immediately want to buy the next book, just to see what happens.” --The Dallas Examiner {regarding Loved}.

The Meursault Investigation - Kamel Daoud Preview:

A New York Times Notable Book of 2015 “A tour-de-force reimagining of Camus’s The Stranger, from the point of view of the mute Arab victims.” —The New Yorker He was the brother of “the Arab” killed by the infamous Meursault, the antihero of Camus’s classic novel. Seventy years after that event, Harun, who has lived since childhood in the shadow of his sibling’s memory, refuses to let him remain anonymous: he gives his brother a story and a name—Musa—and describes the events that led to Musa’s casual murder on a dazzlingly sunny beach. In a bar in Oran, night after night, he ruminates on his solitude, on his broken heart, on his anger with men desperate for a god, and on his disarray when faced with a country that has so disappointed him. A stranger among his own people, he wants to be granted, finally, the right to die. The Stranger is of course central to Daoud’s story, in which he both endorses and criticizes one of the most famous novels in the world. A worthy complement to its great predecessor, The Meursault Investigation is not only a profound meditation on Arab identity and the disastrous effects of colonialism in Algeria, but also a stunning work of literature in its own right, told in a unique and affecting voice..

Jack of Spades - Joyce Carol Oates Preview:

An exquisite, psychologically complex thriller about opposing forces within the mind of one ambitious writer and the delicate line between genius and madness. Andrew J. Rush has achieved the kind of critical and commercial success most authors only dream about: He has a top agent and publisher in New York, and his twenty-eight mystery novels have sold millions of copies. Only Stephen King, one of the few mystery writers whose fame exceeds his own, is capable of inspiring a twinge of envy in Rush. But Rush is hiding a dark secret. Under the pseudonym “Jack of Spades,” he pens another string of novels—noir thrillers that are violent, lurid, and masochistic. These are novels that the upstanding Rush wouldn’t be caught reading, let alone writing. When his daughter comes across a Jack of Spades novel he has carelessly left out, she picks it up and begins to ask questions. Meanwhile, Rush receives a court summons in the mail explaining that a local woman has accused him of plagiarizing her own self-published fiction. Before long, Rush’s reputation, career, and family life all come under threat—and in his mind he begins to hear the taunting voice of the Jack of Spades. “Sleek and suspenseful . . . Readers are sure to be gripped and unsettled by [Oates’s] depiction of a seemingly mild-mannered character whose psychopathology simmers frighteningly close to the surface.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “Just when you think you’ve got her all figured out, Joyce Carol Oates sneaks up behind and confounds you yet again. She does it with a wicked flourish in Jack of Spades.” —The New York Times Book Review.

The Man Without a Shadow - Joyce Carol Oates Preview:

In this taut and fascinating novel, the bestselling, New York Times bestselling and National Book Award-winning author of The Sacrifice, The Accursed, and Lovely, Dark, Deep examines the mysteries of memory, personality, and identity and pierces the enigmatic force that drives human lives—love. In 1965, neuroscientist Margot Sharpe meets the attractive, charismatic Elihu Hoopes—the “man without a shadow”—whose devastated memory, unable to store new experiences or to retrieve the old, will make him the most famous and most studied amnesiac in history. Over the course of the next thirty years, Margot herself becomes famous for her experiments with E. H.—and inadvertently falls in love with him, despite the ethical ambiguity of their affair, and though he remains forever elusive and mysterious to her, haunted by mysteries of the past. The Man Without a Shadow tracks the intimate, illicit relationship between Margot and Eli, as scientist and subject embark upon an exploration of the labyrinthine mysteries of the human brain. Where does “memory” reside? Where is “love”? Is it possible to love an individual who cannot love you, who cannot “remember” you from one meeting to the next? Made vivid by her exceptional eye for detail and her keen insight into the human psyche, The Man Without A Shadow is a unique story of forbidden love, a kind of secret, evolving marriage, depicted in Joyce Carol Oates’s tight, impassioned prose. It is an uncanny, ambitious, and structurally complex novel that penetrates the mind and illuminates the heart..

Carthage - Joyce Carol Oates Preview:

A young girl's disappearance rocks a community and a family in this stirring examination of grief, faith, justice, and the atrocities of war from Joyce Carol Oates, "one of the great artistic forces of our time" (The Nation) Zeno Mayfield's daughter has disappeared into the night, gone missing in the wilds of the Adirondacks. But when the community of Carthage joins a father's frantic search for the girl, they discover the unlikeliest of suspects—a decorated Iraq War veteran with close ties to the Mayfield family. As grisly evidence mounts against the troubled war hero, the family must wrestle with the possibility of having lost a daughter forever. Carthage plunges us deep into the psyche of a wounded young corporal haunted by unspeakable acts of wartime aggression, while unraveling the story of a disaffected young girl whose exile from her family may have come long before her disappearance. Dark and riveting, Carthage is a powerful addition to the Joyce Carol Oates canon, one that explores the human capacity for violence, love, and forgiveness, and asks if it's ever truly possible to come home again..

Black Girl,/White Girl - Joyce Carol Oates Preview:

Fifteen years ago, in 1975, Genna Hewett-Meade's college roommate died a mysterious, violent, terrible death. Minette Swift had been a fiercely individualistic scholarship student, an assertive—even prickly—personality, and one of the few black girls at an exclusive women's liberal arts college near Philadelphia. By contrast, Genna was a quiet, self-effacing teenager from a privileged upper-class home, self-consciously struggling to make amends for her own elite upbringing. When, partway through their freshman year, Minette suddenly fell victim to an increasing torrent of racist harassment and vicious slurs—from within the apparent safety of their tolerant, "enlightened" campus—Genna felt it her duty to protect her roommate at all costs. Now, as Genna reconstructs the months, weeks, and hours leading up to Minette's tragic death, she is also forced to confront her own identity within the social framework of that time. Her father was a prominent civil defense lawyer whose radical politics—including defending anti-war terrorists wanted by the FBI—would deeply affect his daughter's outlook on life, and later challenge her deepest beliefs about social obligation in a morally gray world. Black Girl / White Girl is a searing double portrait of "black" and "white," of race and civil rights in post-Vietnam America, captured by one of the most important literary voices of our time..
