Morris Frank lost his sight in 1924, when he was only sixteen. But it wasn’t just his sight that he lost—he lost his independence too. Morris didn’t want to be led around by a paid helper or find work making brooms, as was expected of blind people then. He wanted to lead a normal life. One day in 1928, Morris’s dad read him an article about Dorothy Harrison Eustis, an American dog trainer living in Switzerland. She had been training dogs for police and army work, but had recently visited a German school where dogs were taught to help soldiers who had been blinded in World War I. Thrilled with this new possibility, Morris set off on his own to Switzerland to meet with Dorothy Eustis and her head trainer, Jack Humphrey. Morris had big ambitions—not only did he want to learn how to work with a guide dog, but he also wanted to start his own guide dog school in America! Morris began training with his dog, Buddy. While he struggled—stepping on Buddy’s paws, not paying attention to her cues, and even walking into a gatepost—Buddy waited patiently at his side, allowing him to learn. At last Morris felt ready to return to America with Buddy at his side. But his biggest adventure still lay ahead—founding the Seeing Eye, an organization that has trained thousands of dogs to help other blind people lead independent lives. The Seeing Eye is still in existence today and continues to provide dogs and lifetime training to qualified people.

The Seeing Eye traces its origin to the trenches and battlefields of World War I, where legions of soldiers were blinded during years of brutal engagements. After the war, Germany trained dogs to guide its blinded veterans. In the late 1920s, a small group of innovators took it upon themselves to teach blind and visually impaired people in North America to use dog guides. The Seeing Eye has since helped thousands to achieve greater independence, dignity, and self-confidence, using specially trained Seeing Eye dogs as their companions.Using rare photographs and documents, The Seeing Eye details this remarkable organization and its pioneers, including German shepherd breeder and Seeing Eye founder Dorothy Harrison Eustis; Morris Frank, the first visually impaired American to learn to use a Seeing Eye dog; and Frank's own dog, Buddy. The story follows the first students as they navigate the busy streets of Nashville, Tennessee, in 1929, and Morris County, New Jersey, where the fledgling organization moved in 1931 and where it continues to operate today. The Seeing Eye documents the campuses and the students, as well as the faithful dogs, their care, and their training. The reader will meet the dedicated employees and volunteers who have made the organization possible, as well as the graduates who have gone on to lead successful and fulfilling lives.

A German shepherd—the first dog trained at Dorothy Eustis's famous Seeing Eye guide-dog school for the blind—looks back at her life. Chosen for her intelligence, obedience, and willingness to learn, Kiss knows there is more to life than chasing balls and chewing bones. She is a Noble Creature and Great Things await her. But after spending months learing to take care of her beloved trainer Jack, why does he suddenly want her to take care of Morris—a strange, clumsy man who wants to wants to change her name to Buddy? Could it be that Morris needs Kiss to take care of him even more than Jack did? Based on a true story, and featuring realistic black-and-white illustrations by Tim Jessell (plus an appendix with information about German shepherds, the history and training of guide dogs, hosting guide-dog puppies, and much more), this canine confessional is pitch-perfect for smart, dog-crazy, early middle-grade readers!

Binets erster Roman «HHhH» gewann 2010 den Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman, und sein neuer Roman «Die siebte Sprachfunktion» gewann 2015 den Prix Interallié und den Prix du Roman Fnac. Es ist ein Krimi mit Poststrukturalisten. Paris, Frühjahr 1980: Roland Barthes wird von einem bulgarischen Wäschelieferanten überfahren. Barthes kommt von einem Essen mit dem Kandidaten für das Amt des Ministerpräsidenten, François Mitterrand, und trägt ein Manuskript unter dem Arm. Ein Passant, Michel Foucault, wird Zeuge des Unfalls und behauptet, es war Mord. Der Tod des Autors ist für Kommissar Bayard ein Rätsel. Er mischt sich unter die Poststrukturalisten, besucht Vorlesungen von Foucault und hört Vorträge von Julia Kristeva, Philippe Sollers, Jacques Derrida und anderen. Da er nichts versteht, macht er den jungen Sprachwissenschaftler Simon Herzog zu seinem Assistenten. Der Roman ist auch ein Gesellschaftsporträt des Frankreichs der achtziger Jahre. Bayard ermittelt unter den Nach-Achtundsechzigern, die er nicht ausstehen kann, diesen linken Nichtsnutzen, die mit Joints und langen Haaren vor der Uni herumlungern und mit lüsternen Professoren, die von sexueller Freiheit labern und sich unzüchtig benehmen, Frankreichs Kultur gefährden. Das Manuskript, das Barthes bei sich hatte, bleibt spurlos verschwunden. Auch der bulgarische Geheimdienst interessiert sich dafür. Ein bulgarischer Mörder greift Simon Herzog mit einer vergifteten Regenschirmspitze an. Aber im letzten Moment wird Herzog von zwei Japanern gerettet. Sie sind ebenfalls hinter dem Manuskript her. Eine heiße Spur führt zu dem italienischen Semiotiker Umberto Eco. Also bewegt sich der Tross – Kommissar und Assistent, Bulgaren und Japaner, nach Italien. Die Reise geht noch lange weiter, sie führt sogar auf einen amerikanischen Campus, wo Foucault über die Sexualität der Elefanten philosophiert. Das Manuskript, das alle haben wollen, beschreibt die siebte Sprachfunktion (in Anlehnung an Roman Jakobsons Standardwerk der Linguistik über die sechs Sprachfunktionen). Die siebte Funktion, die Binet Roland Barthes erfinden lässt, gibt Politikern die rhetorischen Mittel an die Hand, öffentliche Rededuelle und damit auch die Wahlen zu gewinnen. Könnte Mitterrand damit an die Macht gelangen?
