Around the world, when people think of vacation it's the beach they want-even when long distances must be traversed, the seashore is the place to escape the rigors of modern life. How did this come to be, and what does our ongoing love affair with the beach mean? How do shore vacations differ from traditional tourism, and what does this tell us about our dreams and fears? In At the Beach, Jean-Didier Urbain offers witty and insightful answers to these questions.

Der junge Engländer Richard ist mit dem Rucksack in Thailand unterwegs – abseits der überfüllten Routen des Massentourismus, auf der Suche nach der wahren, unverfälschten Seele des Landes, dem einzigartigen Abenteuer. Als er zusammen mit einem französischen Pärchen einen entlegenen Strand entdeckt, glaubt er am Ziel seiner Träume angelangt zu sein: weißer Sand und farbige Korallengärten, ein majestätischer Wasserfall, umringt von tropischem Dschungel, und ein buntgemischtes Häufchen junger Leute aus aller Welt, die hier ihr Lager aufgeschlagen haben. Es ist das reinste Paradies. Bis der Strand sein wahres Gesicht zu erkennen gibt. Und sich als eine grausame Hölle entpuppt, die alles zu vernichten droht. „Der Strand“ wurde sehr erfolgreich unter dem Titel „The Beach“ mit Leonardo Di Caprio verfilmt.

This is the true story of a trip to the beach that never ends. It's about a husband and wife who escape civilization to build a small restaurant on an island paradise -- and discover that even paradise has its pitfalls. It's a story filled with calamities and comedy, culinary disasters and triumphs, and indelible portraits of people who live and work on a sliver of beauty set in the Caribbean Sea. It's about the maddening, exhausting, outlandish complications of trying to live the simple life -- and the joy that comes when you somehow pull it off. The story begins when Bob and Melinda Blanchard sell their successful Vermont food business and decide, perhaps impulsively, to get away from it all. Why not open a beach bar and grill on Anguilla, their favorite Caribbean island? One thing leads to another and the little grill turns into an enchanting restaurant that quickly draws four-star reviews and a celebrity-studded clientele eager for Melinda's delectable cooking. Amid the frenetic pace of the Christmas "high season," the Blanchards and their kitchen staff -- Clinton and Ozzie, the dancing sous-chefs; Shabby, the master lobster-wrangler; Bug, the dish-washing comedian -- come together like a crack drill team. And even in the midst of hilarious pandemonium, there are moments of bliss. As the Blanchards learn to adapt to island time, they become ever more deeply attached to the quirky rhythms and customs of their new home. Until disaster strikes: Hurricane Luis, a category-4 storm with two-hundred-mile-an-hour gusts, devastates Anguilla. Bob and Melinda survey the wreckage of their beloved restaurant and wonder whether leaving Anguilla, with its innumerable challenges, would be any easier than walking out on each other. Affectionate, seductive, and very funny, A Trip to the Beach is a love letter to a place that becomes both home and escape.

In der Erzählung „Der Strand von Falesa“ kommt ein Händler auf eine Südseeinsel, wo er auf Aberglauben, Feindseligkeit und einen skrupellosen Mörder trifft. Die aus der Perspektive eines Ich-Erzählers vorgetragene Geschichte zeichnet sich durch ihre raue, ungeschliffene Sprache aus, die unter den Seeleuten des 19. Jahrhunderts üblich war. Neben spannenden Abenteuern erzählt die Geschichte von einer Liebe zwischen Menschen verschiedener Hautfarbe und Kultur in der kolonialistischen Welt des 19. Jahrhunderts. Hier liegt Stevensons Roman in der englischen Originalfassung sowie einer aktualisierten deutschen Übersetzung vor. Wie bei allen Werken der ofd edition wurden die ursprüngliche Druckversionen nicht automatisiert kopiert, sondern sorgfältig neu editiert und dabei den heute geltenden Rechtschreibregeln angepasst – die bessere Lesbarkeit und Gestaltung verhelfen so zu einem ungetrübten Lesegenuss.

Feel bad about not reading or not enjoying the so-called great books? Don’t sweat it, it’s not your fault. Did anyone tell you that Anna Karenina is a beach read, that Dickens is hilarious, that the Iliad’s battle scenes rival Hollywood’s for gore, or that Joyce is at his best when he’s talking about booze, sex, or organ meats? Writer and professor Jack Murnighan says it’s time to give literature another look, but this time you’ll enjoy yourself. With a little help, you’ll see just how great the great books are: how they can make you laugh, moisten your eyes, turn you on, and leave you awestruck and deeply moved. Beowulf on the Beach is your field guide–erudite, witty, and fun-loving–for helping you read and relish fifty of the biggest (and most skipped) classics of all time. For each book, Murnighan reveals how to get the most out of your reading and provides a crib sheet that includes the Buzz, the Best Line, What’s Sexy, and What to Skip. From the Trade Paperback edition.
