In the CHAGA novels Ian McDonald brought an Africa in the grip of a bizarre alien invasion to life, in RIVER OF GODS he painted a rich portrait of India in 2047, in BRASYL he looked at different Brazils, past present and future. Ian McDonald has found renown at the cutting edge of a movement to take SF away from its British and American white roots and out into the rich cultures of the world. THE DERVISH HOUSE continues that journey and centres on Istanbul in 2025. Turkey is part of Europe but sited on the edge, it is an Islamic country that looks to the West. THE DERVISH HOUSE is the story of the families that live in and around its titular house, it is at once a rich mosaic of Islamic life in the new century and a telling novel of future possibilities.

Slade House (eBook, ePUB)
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Das neue Buch von David Mitchell, dem Autor des von den Wachowski-Geschwistern verfilmten, genre- und zeitenübergreifenden Romans «Wolkenatlas»: ein Schauerroman par excellence. Geh die Slade Alley hinunter - schmal, feucht und leicht zu verfehlen, selbst wenn du sie suchst. Finde das kleine schwarze Eisentor in der Mauer zur Rechten. Keine Klinke, kein Schlüsselloch, aber wenn du es berührst, schwingt es auf. Tritt in den sonnendurchfluteten Garten eines alten Hauses, das dort unpassend wirkt: zu nobel für die schäbige Nachbarschaft, irgendwie zu groß für das Grundstück. Ein Fremder begrüßt dich und führt dich hinein. Zunächst möchtest du gar nicht mehr fort. Dann merkst du, dass du es nicht mehr kannst. Denn alle neun Jahre, am letzten Sonntag im Oktober, wird ein «Gast» ins Slade House eingeladen. Doch warum wurde er oder sie ausgewählt, von wem und zu welchem Zweck? Die Antwort findet sich dort am hinteren Ende des Flurs, oben am Absatz der Treppe. «Slade House» ist ein raffiniert komponiertes Schauerstück. Und auch eine literarische Hommage an die großen Klassiker der fantastischen Literatur, von «Alice im Wunderland» bis zur «Rocky Horror Picture Show» ? ein Buch wie eine Escher´sche Kippfigur, von einem der einfallsreichsten und phantasiebegabtesten Schriftsteller der zeitgenössischen Literatur. Mitchell zaubert bunt und lustvoll und verzaubert damit uns.

Golden House (eBook, ePUB)
19,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Seit ´´Fegefeuer der Eitelkeiten´´ gab es keinen Roman mehr, der unsere Zeit so treffend, unterhaltsam und weitsichtig erklärt. Nero Golden kommt aus einem Land, dessen Namen er nie wieder hören wollte, seit er mit seinen drei erwachsenen Söhnen vor ein paar Jahren nach New York gezogen ist und sich eine junge Russin zur Frau genommen hat. Der junge Filmemacher René wohnt im Nachbarhaus und ist fasziniert von der Familie, die ihm besten Stoff für ein Drehbuch liefert: Aufstieg und Fall eines skrupellos ehrgeizigen, narzisstischen und mediengewandten Schurken, der Make-up trägt und sich die Haare färbt. René wird Zeuge und in einer folgenschweren Episode sogar Teilhaber des dekadenten Treibens im Golden House, dessen Besitzer nicht nur den Vornamen mit Kaiser Nero teilt ... Salman Rushdie erfasst den irritierenden Zeitgeist und zeichnet mit größter Erzählkunst ein treffendes Bild unserer heutigen Welt. Dieser Roman beweist aufs Neue, dass er einer der besten Geschichtenerzähler unserer Tage ist.

The Golden House (eBook, ePUB)

** New York Times bestseller** A Guardian / Observer Book of the Year When powerful real-estate tycoon Nero Golden immigrates to the States under mysterious circumstances, he and his three adult children assume new identities, taking ´Roman´ names, and move into a grand mansion in downtown Manhattan. Arriving shortly after the inauguration of Barack Obama, he and his sons, each extraordinary in his own right, quickly establish themselves at the apex of New York society. The story of the Golden family is told from the point of view of their Manhattanite neighbour and confidant, René, an aspiring filmmaker who finds in the Goldens the perfect subject. René chronicles the undoing of the house of Golden: the high life of money, of art and fashion, a sibling quarrel, an unexpected metamorphosis, the arrival of a beautiful woman, betrayal and murder, and far away, in their abandoned homeland, some decent intelligence work. Invoking literature, pop culture, and the cinema, Rushdie spins the story of the American zeitgeist over the last eight years, hitting every beat: the rise of the birther movement, the Tea Party, Gamergate and identity politics; the backlash against political correctness; the ascendency of the superhero movie, and, of course, the insurgence of a ruthlessly ambitious, narcissistic, media-savvy villain wearing make-up and with coloured hair. In a new world order of alternative truths, Salman Rushdie has written the ultimate novel about identity, truth, terror and lies. A brilliant, heartbreaking realist novel that is not only uncannily prescient but shows one of the world?s greatest storytellers working at the height of his powers.
