ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this masterful debut, Martin Clark proves to be the heir apparent of great Southern raconteurs and the envy of more seasoned novelists as he takes us on a frantic tour of the modern South. Hung over, beaten by the unforgiving sun, bitter at his estranged wife, and dreading the day's docket of petty criminal cases, Judge Evers Wheeling is in need of something on the morning he's accosted by Ruth Esther English. Ruth Esther's strange story certainly is something, and Judge Wheeling finds himself in uncharted territory. Reluctantly agreeing to help Ruth Esther retrieve some stolen money, he recruits his pot-addled brother and a band of merry hangers-on for the big adventure. Raucous road trips, infidelity, suspected killers, winning Lotto tickets, drunken philosophical rants, and at least one naked woman tied to a road sign ensue in The Many Aspects of Mobile Home Living, one part legal thriller, one part murder mystery, and all parts wild. 1.

Born in 1906, Huguette Clark grew up in her family's 121-room Beaux Arts mansion in New York and was one of the leading celebrities of her day. Her father, William Andrews Clark, was a copper magnate, the second richest man in America, and not above bribing his way into the Senate. Huguette attended the coronation of King George V. And at 22, with a personal fortune of $50 million to her name, she married a Princeton man and childhood friend, William MacDonald Gower. Two-years later the couple divorced. After a series of failed romances, Huguette began to withdraw from society - first living with her mother in a kind of Grey Gardens isolation, then as a modern-day Miss Havisham, spending her days in a vast apartment overlooking Central Park, eating crackers and watching The Flintstones with only servants for company. All her money and all her real estate could not protect her in her later life from being manipulated by shady hangers-on and hospitals that were only too happy to admit (and bill) a healthy woman. But what happened to Huguette that turned a vivacious, young socialite into a recluse? And what was her life like inside that gilded, copper cage? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bernadette Dunne.

The Panda Chronicles
18,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

The Panda Chronicles tells the story of our charming but bewildered hero's attempts to get a paw around the great truths of life and love, even as he sparks off chaos all around. Part low comedy, part post-modern fable, the story proceeds through a series of allegorical encounters with a colourful cast of minor characters, presented to us by an excitable contemporary narrator. As Panda's slapstick disasters take a more tragic turn, so the text cunningly dismantles itself, and we are left pondering, with Panda and his beleaguered narrator, just what it has all meant. Throw in a lyrical prose style, a dose of romance, war, shipwrecks and the god of tangled coat hangers, and you are ready to enter the unique world of Panda, walking into things, and bumping his snout.
