Ausgezeichnet mit dem Pulitzerpreis Crosby, eine kleine Stadt an der Küste von Maine. Hier ist nicht gerade sehr viel los. Doch sieht man einmal genauer hin, ist jeder Mensch eine Geschichte und Crosby die ganze Welt. Elizabeth Strout fügt diese Geschichten mit liebevoller Ironie und feinem Gespür für Zwischenmenschliches zu einem unvergesslichen Roman. Sie kann manchmal eine rechte Nervensäge sein: Olive Kitteridge, die pensionierte Lehrerin. Weil sie zu allem, was in dem Städtchen Crosby geschieht, eine dezidierte Meinung hat, halten sie einige für überkritisch. Dann wieder überrascht sie durch Selbstlosigkeit und Mitgefühl. Sie mischt sich ein und macht sich ihre Gedanken über ihre Mitmenschen: die schrille Barpianistin, die insgeheim einer verlorenen Liebe nachtrauert, einen ehemaligen Schüler, der keinen Sinn mehr im Leben sieht, ihren eigenen Sohn, der sich von ihren Empfindlichkeiten bevormundet fühlt, ihren Mann Henry, der die Ehe mit ihr nicht nur als Segen, sondern manchmal auch als Fluch empfindet. Und während sich die Menschen in Crosby mit ihrem ganz normalen Leben herumschlagen, den Problemen wie den Freuden, lernt Olive auf ihre alten Tage, das Leben zu lieben. Elizabeth Strouts Roman erzählt von Liebe und Kummer, von Toleranz und Aufbegehren. »Mit Blick aufs Meer« ist ein weises und anrührendes Buch über die Natur des Menschen in all seiner Verletzlichkeit und Stärke, erfrischend ehrlich und unglaublich schön.

From the Man Booker Prize Longlisted author of My Name is Lucy Barton Katherine is only five-years-old. Struck dumb with grief at her mother's death, it is down to her father, the heartbroken minister Tyler Caskey, to bring his daughter out of silence she has observed in the wake of the family's tragedy. But Tyler Caskey is barely surviving himself. His cold, church-assigned home is colder still since Lauren's death, and he struggles to find the right words for his sermons; struggles to be a leader to his congregation when he himself is lost. When Katherine's schoolteacher calls to discuss his daughter's anti-social behaviour, it sparks a chain of events that begins to tear down Tyler's defences. The small-town rumour-mill has much to make of Katherine's odd behaviour, and even more to say about Tyler's relationship with his housekeeper, Connie Hatch. And in Tyler's darkest hour, a startling discovery will test his congregation's humanity - and his own will to endure the kinds of trials that sooner or later test us all. From the Orange Prize-shortlisted author of Amy & Isabelle, this is a startlingly beautiful novel about love and abandonment, faith and hypocrisy; and the peril of family secrets…

From the Man Booker Prize longlisted author of My Name is Lucy Barton ? Isabelle Goodrow has been living in self-imposed exile with her daughter Amy for fifteen years. Shamed by her past and her affair with Amy's father, she has submerged herself in the routine of her dead-end job and her unrequited love for her boss. But when Amy, frustrated by her quiet and unemotional mother, embarks on an illicit affair with her maths teacher, the disgrace intensifies the shame Isabelle feels about her own past. Throughout one long, sweltering summer, as the events of the small town ebb and flow around them, Amy and Isabelle exist in silent conflict until a final act leads ultimately to the understanding they both crave.

One of the signature novels of the American 1960s, Couples is a book that, when it debuted, scandalized the public with prose pictures of the way people live, and that today provides an engrossing epitaph to the short, happy life of the “post-Pill paradise.” It chronicles the interactions of ten young married couples in a seaside New England community who make a cult of sex and of themselves. The group of acquaintances form a magical circle, complete with ritualistic games, religious substitutions, a priest (Freddy Thorne), and a scapegoat (Piet Hanema). As with most American utopias, this one's existence is brief and unsustainable, but the “imaginative quest” that inspires its creation is eternal.

“As our vision becomes more global, our storytelling is stretching in many ways. Stories increasingly change point of view, switch location, and sometimes pack as much material as a short novel might,” writes guest editor Elizabeth Strout. “It’s the variety of voices that most indicates the increasing confluence of cultures involved in making us who we are.” The Best American Short Stories 2013 presents an impressive diversity of writers who dexterously lead us into their corners of the world. In “Miss Lora,” Junot Díaz masterfully puts us in the mind of a teenage boy who throws aside his better sense and pursues an intimate affair with a high school teacher. Sheila Kohler tackles innocence and abuse as a child wanders away from her mother, in thrall to a stranger she believes is the “Magic Man.” Kirstin Valdez Quade’s “Nemecia” depicts the after-effects of a secret, violent family trauma. Joan Wickersham’s “The Tunnel” is a tragic love story about a mother’s declining health and her daughter’s helplessness as she struggles to balance her responsibility to her mother and her own desires. New author Callan Wink’s “Breatharians” unsettles the reader as a farm boy shoulders a grim chore in the wake of his parents’ estrangement. “Elizabeth Strout was a wonderful reader, an author who knows well that the sound of one’s writing is just as important as and indivisible from the content,” writes series editor Heidi Pitlor. “Here are twenty compellingly told, powerfully felt stories about urgent matters with profound consequences.”

THE GIRL WHO REACHED FOR THE STARS is a breathtaking tale of daring dreams and a love that surmounts all barriers. Set against the evocative background of Medieval Venice, this riveting story is told from the perspectives of several people whose destinies are tightly intertwined: a young pickpocket, a savvy Jewish survival artist, and a teenage girl with a remarkable talent. All of them are torn apart by violence, intrigue, revenge, and greed but also united by friendship, dreams of justice, and the courage to reach for the stars. Echoing his international bestseller THE BOY WHO GRANTED DREAMS, Luca Di Fulvio's novel tells the unforgettable love story between a Christian boy and a Jewish girl against the backdrop of the first Jewish ghetto in sixteenth-century Venice.

This is the third volume of the acta of a series of symposia held in Hernen Castle (Netherlands). Two earlier volumes were published under the same title East and West in the Crusader States: Context - Contacts - Confrontations (I and II, Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta 78 and 92). Cultural, social and religious contacts took place in the multi-ethnic society in Outremer. The various articles deal with religious and cultural encounters in the Crusader States where Byzantines, Syrian Orthodox, Georgians, Muslims, the Military Orders and many others met almost daily. Ethnographic attitudes, money changing hands, pilgrims' accommodation, icons and other forms of religious art are discussed here. Confrontation took place when new expeditions were organised (Alexandrian Crusade). The history of the Latin States is discussed in the context of Byzantine and Western sources. The first English translation of Constantine Manasses' Hodoiporikon is published in this volume.
