While the impact that legendary actors and actresses have had on the development of the Hollywood film industry is well known, few have recognised the power of movie fans on shaping the industry. This books redresses that balance, and is the first study of Hollywood's golden era to examine the period from the viewpoint of the fans. Using fan club journals, fan letters, studio production records, and other previously unpublished archival sources, Samantha Barbas reveals how the passion, enthusiasm, and ongoing activism of film fans in Hollywood's golden era transformed early cinema, the modern mass media and American popular culture.

„›Sweetbitter‹ wird eine Menge Leute hungrig machen.“ The New York Times Eigentlich wollte Tess nicht Kellnerin werden. Sie wollte ihrer provinziellen Herkunft entkommen, in die Großstadt eintauchen und endlich herausfinden, wofür sie geschaffen ist. Doch dann landet sie in einem edlen New Yorker Restaurant und es ist wie der Eintritt in ein neues Universum, in dem ganz eigene Regeln und Gesetze herrschen, in dem der falsche Wein im falschen Moment zum Verhängnis werden kann. Oder die Ignoranz gegenüber der Einzigartigkeit einer Auster. Sweetbitter ist ein großer Roman über den Genuss und die Obsession – darüber, dass man manchmal besessen sein muss, um wirklich genießen zu können. „Eine rohe, schnörkellose, beißende, wilde Liebesgeschichte.“ People Magazine

At an exclusive California prep school, four young girls form a bond that will endure over two decades—a bond built on secrets, scandal and murder…a bond about to be broken. Mattie, a federal judge…Breeze, a wealthy entrepreneur…and Jane, the first lady of the United States, have all enjoyed a meteoric rise to success since their days at the Rowe Academy for Girls. But now the truth behind the suicide of their friend Ivy and the murder of their headmistress twenty years ago is no longer safely hidden. The man imprisoned for the murder has been exonerated, and a true crime reporter is relentlessly pursuing a loose thread in the decades-old cover-up, one that threatens to unravel the women's pact of silence. But none of them anticipated the twisted depths of the secrets about to be exposed—or how the truth could shatter all their lives.

Neufundland, 1919: Die beiden Flieger Jack Alcock und Arthur Brown unternehmen den ersten Nonstopflug über den Atlantik mit Kurs Irland. Dublin, 1845: Der schwarzamerikanische Abolitionist Frederick Douglass reist durch das von Hungersnot gepeinigte Irland, wo die Leute schlimmer leiden als unter der Sklaverei. New York, 1998: US-Senator George Mitchell verlässt seine junge Frau und sein erst wenige Tage altes Baby, um in Belfast die Nordirischen Friedensgespräche zu einem unsicheren Abschluss zu führen. «Transatlantik» verwebt drei ikonische historische Momente mit dem Schicksal dreier Frauen: Angefangen mit der irischen Hausmagd Lily Duggan, in der Frederick Douglass die Liebe zur Freiheit weckt, folgt der Roman ihrer Tochter Emily und ihrer Enkelin Lottie in die USA und, später, zurück auf die Insel. Ihr Leben spiegelt den Verlauf der bewegten Nationalgeschichte Irlands und Amerikas. Dabei spielt ein vergessener, über drei Generationen nicht geöffneter Brief eine entscheidende Rolle. «Transatlantik» ist ein kraftvolles Epos über die Kollision von Geschichte und persönlichem Schicksal – geschrieben mit unvergleichlicher dichterischer Intensität, mit leuchtenden Szenen und klingender Sprache.

This fictional work tells the story of a unique and lasting bond that develops between three individuals from very different backgrounds, whose worlds collide in Manchester, England in the late 1980's. Although set mainly in Manchester, London and Nassau, Bahamas, pivotal parts of the story are set in Los Angeles, California and New York City. Stephen Taylor is a young West Indian man who tries to loosen the shackles of a small town upbringing when he moves to England to attend university. He is troubled by the guilt that stems from his inability to accept his homosexuality and does everything in his power to hide from himself. Despite developing a powerful bond with Suresh Patel, a young, gay British man of Indian extraction and Tanya Collings, a troubled Canadian young woman, Stephen eventually returns to The Bahamas, where old demons resurface to haunt him. His path to self-discovery is fraught with challenges, which include a nervous collapse, a loveless marriage and the rejection of the man he truly loves. Ultimately, however, he finds redemption - and himself. Tanya Collings is a young Canadian woman who has endured unfathomable physical and sexual abuse at the hands of her parents. She meets Stephen and Suresh soon after escaping to England and develops a special bond with them that ultimately helps her to heal her damaged life. Although she generally distrusts all men, with the exception of her friends Stephen and Suresh, she eventually meets Michael Rouse, a young Englishman with whom she falls in love and finally marries. Suresh Patel is a brash (often coarse), self-assured British man of Indian parentage who is aware of his homosexuality from an early age, and accepts it completely. He moves to Manchester, after being rejected by his family and suffering a succession of tragedies. Suresh is the glue that holds the story together, providing a source of strength for Tanya and Stephen despite the challenges that he himself faces. Ultimately, the story is one of hope, of how the power of love helps three very damaged people heal their lives - and those of the friends who come to mean more than family. It is a story that transcends the boundaries of race, colour, class and sexual preference and will likely appeal to men and women everywhere who have had to grapple with issues of incest, sexual and physical abuse, bisexuality, homosexuality, violence and AIDS. In the author's view, the story is particularly pertinent to the current international debate on issues surrounding gay relationships. In the United States, the catalyst for the current discussion has been the subject of marriage between same-sex partners; but at its foundation, the matter is far more complex than that. Cultural and religious taboos, intolerance and ignorance are all a part of the current global pre-occupation with gay, bisexual and trans-gendered persons and these are all subjects that are explored and debated in When Worlds Collide.
