Jack Kerouacs epochemachender Roman «On the Road» (deutsch: «Unterwegs») über eine Schar junger Menschen, die auf der Suche nach Wahrheit, der Liebe und dem glückseligen Leben quer durch die USA reisen, hat weltweit Generationen junger Leute inspiriert. Er gehört zu den seltenen Büchern des 20. Jahrhunderts, die nicht nur einen völlig neuen Ton anschlugen, sondern vom Geist einer neuen Zeit kündeten: Nahezu im Alleingang schuf «On the Road» mit der Beat-Generation eine der ersten großen amerikanischen Jugendbewegungen und inspirierte deren geistige Nachkommen, die Hippies. Kerouac tippte das Manuskript in drei schlaflosen Wochen mit Hilfe von viel Kaffee und Benzedrin auf eine vierzig Meter lange Papierrolle. Beim Verlag wurde es später stark bearbeitet, gekürzt und anonymisiert. Die hier zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch vorliegende Urfassung ist ein einziger, von Jazz und Marihuana inspirierter Energiestoß. Die Sprachmusik darin ist roher als in der Druckfassung, der Sex expliziter, die Figuren (u. a. Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs und der heimliche Held des Romans, der geniale Autodieb und Lebenskünstler Neal Cassidy) erscheinen mit Klarnamen. Übertragen wurde die Urfassung von Ulrich Blumenbach, der seit seiner Übersetzung von David Foster Wallace’ Roman «Unendlicher Spa߻ zu den wohl renommiertesten deutschen Literaturübersetzern gehört. The beat goes on, und der wilde Rausch, den er erzeugt, verfehlt auch nach 50 Jahren nicht seine Wirkung. Dieses Buch war und ist ein «literarisches Ereignis» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).

Die Welt nach dem Ende der Welt Ein Mann und ein Kind schleppen sich durch ein verbranntes Amerika. Nichts bewegt sich in der zerstörten Landschaft, nur die Asche schwebt im Wind. Es ist eiskalt, der Schnee schimmert grau. Sie haben kaum etwas bei sich: ihre Kleider am Leib, einen Einkaufswagen mit der nötigsten Habe und einen Revolver mit zwei Schuss Munition. Ihr Ziel ist die Küste, obwohl sie nicht wissen, was sie dort erwartet. Die Geschichte der beiden ist eine düstere Parabel auf das Leben, und sie erzählt von der herzzerreißenden Liebe eines Vaters zu seinem Sohn.

Gerry McAvoy war von 1971 bis 1991 der Bassist der irischen Blues-Legende Rory Gallagher - die einzige Konstante auf allen 14 Soloalben des Ausnahmegitarristen, die weltweit mehr als 30 Millionen Mal verkauft wurden. Kaum jemand kannte Rory Gallagher besser als er, denn er begleitete ihn in seiner kreativsten Phase seines Lebens, bis eine schwere Krankheit seine Karriere frόhzeitig beendete. "On the road" ist die Geschichte von Gerry McAvoys Leben vor, mit und nach Rory Gallagher. Aber es ist auch die Geschichte einer Gruppe von jungen Musikern, die wδhrend der Unruhen in Belfast groί wurde und trotz Gewalt und Hass auszog, um die Welt im Sturm zu erobern und der irischen Musik zu Weltruhm zu verhelfen. Wie wurde aus dem schόchternen, leise sprechenden Jungen aus Cork im harten Musikbusiness eine Legende, die alle irischen Musiker von Bono bis Boyzone wesentlich beeinflusste? Basierend auf 100 Stunden persφnlicher Recherche, Interviews mit vielen Freunden und Kollegen von Rory Gallagher in England und Irland und Dutzenden von einmaligen, teils unverφffentlichten Fotos aus Gerry McAvoys persφnlicher Sammlung ist "On the road" ein teils schockierender, aber immer authentischer Einblick in das Leben eines Musikers, der in den 70er Jahren in einer der bekanntesten Rockbands spielte und eine Annδherung an einen der grφίten Gitarrenhelden unserer Zeit, der leider viel zu frόh verstarb.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER PULITZER PRIZE WINNER National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist A New York Times Notable Book One of the Best Books of the Year The Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor, The Denver Post, The Kansas City Star, Los Angeles Times, New York, People, Rocky Mountain News, Time, The Village Voice, The Washington Post The searing, postapocalyptic novel destined to become Cormac McCarthy's masterpiece. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The legendary 1951 scroll draft of On the Road, published word for word as Kerouac originally composed it. On the Road chronicles Jack Kerouac's years traveling the North American continent with his friend Neal Cassady, "a sideburned hero of the snowy West." As "Sal Paradise" and "Dean Moriarty," the two roam the country in a quest for self-knowledge and experience. Kerouac's love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz combine to make On the Road an inspirational work of lasting importance.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Gloria Steinem—writer, activist, organizer, and inspiring leader—tells a story she has never told before, a candid account of her life as a traveler, a listener, and a catalyst for change. ONE OF O: THE OPRAH MAGAZINE’S TEN FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR | NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Harper’s Bazaar • St. Louis Post-Dispatch • Publishers Weekly When people ask me why I still have hope and energy after all these years, I always say: Because I travel. Taking to the road—by which I mean letting the road take you—changed who I thought I was. The road is messy in the way that real life is messy. It leads us out of denial and into reality, out of theory and into practice, out of caution and into action, out of statistics and into stories—in short, out of our heads and into our hearts. Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. When she was a young girl, her father would pack the family in the car every fall and drive across country searching for adventure and trying to make a living. The seeds were planted: Gloria realized that growing up didn’t have to mean settling down. And so began a lifetime of travel, of activism and leadership, of listening to people whose voices and ideas would inspire change and revolution. My Life on the Road is the moving, funny, and profound story of Gloria’s growth and also the growth of a revolutionary movement for equality—and the story of how surprising encounters on the road shaped both. From her first experience of social activism among women in India to her work as a journalist in the 1960s; from the whirlwind of political campaigns to the founding of Ms. magazine; from the historic 1977 National Women’s Conference to her travels through Indian Country—a lifetime spent on the road allowed Gloria to listen and connect deeply with people, to understand that context is everything, and to become part of a movement that would change the world. In prose that is revealing and rich, Gloria reminds us that living in an open, observant, and “on the road” state of mind can make a difference in how we learn, what we do, and how we understand each other. Praise for My Life on the Road “This legendary feminist makes a compelling case for traveling as listening: a way of letting strangers’ stories flow, as she puts it, ‘out of our heads and into our hearts.’”—People “Like Steinem herself, [My Life on the Road] is thoughtful and astonishingly humble. It is also filled with a sense of the momentous while offering deeply personal insights into what shaped her.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “A lyrical meditation on restlessness and the quest for equity . . . Part of the appeal of My Life is how Steinem, with evocative, melodic prose, conveys the air of discovery and wonder she felt during so many of her journeys. . . . The lessons imparted in Life on the Road offer more than a reminiscence. They are a beacon of hope for the future.”—USA Today “A warmly companionable look back at nearly five decades as itinerant feminist organizer and standard-bearer. If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to sit down with Ms. Steinem for a casual dinner, this disarmingly intimate book gives a pretty good idea, mixing hard-won pragmatic lessons with more inspirational insights.”—The New York Times “Steinem rocks. My Life on the Road abounds with fresh insights and is as populist as can be.”—The Boston Globe From the Hardcover edition.

Don’t drink and drive. It's a deceptively simple rule, but one that is all too often ignored. And while efforts to eliminate drunk driving have been around as long as automobiles, every movement to keep drunks from driving has hit some alarming bumps in the road. Barron H. Lerner narrates the two strong—and vocal—sides to this debate in the United States: those who argue vehemently against drunk driving, and those who believe the problem is exaggerated and overregulated. A public health professor and historian of medicine, Lerner asks why these opposing views exist, examining drunk driving in the context of American beliefs about alcoholism, driving, individualism, and civil liberties. Angry and bereaved activist leaders and advocacy groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving campaign passionately for education and legislation, but even as people continue to be killed, many Americans remain unwilling to take stronger steps to address the problem. Lerner attributes this attitude to Americans’ love of drinking and love of driving, an inadequate public transportation system, the strength of the alcohol lobby, and the enduring backlash against Prohibition. The stories of people killed and maimed by drunk drivers are heartrending, and the country’s routine rejection of reasonable strategies for ending drunk driving is frustratingly inexplicable. This book is a fascinating study of the culture of drunk driving, grassroots and professional efforts to stop it, and a public that has consistently challenged and tested the limits of individual freedom. Why, despite decades and decades of warnings, do people still choose to drive while intoxicated? One for the Road provides crucial historical lessons for understanding the old epidemic of drunk driving and the new epidemic of distracted driving.
