The Young Lions is a vivid and classic novel that portrays the experiences of ordinary soldiers fighting World War II. Told from the points of view of a perceptive young Nazi, a jaded American film producer, and a shy Jewish boy just married to the love of his life, Shaw conveys, as no other novelist has since, the scope, confusion, and complexity of war.

An East German writer, awaiting a call from the hospital where her brother is undergoing brain surgery, instead receives news of a massive nuclear accident at Chernobyl, one thousand miles away. In the space of a single day, in a potent, lyrical stream of thought, the narrator confronts both mortality and life and above all, the import of each moment lived-open, as Wolf reveals, to infinite analysis.

Aboard the Alecto, prolific romance author Valentine Beals ruminates on the ship's most seemingly incongruous couple: a graceful, ethereal, virginal dancer named Barberina Rookwood and her lover, Saul Henchman, a crippled, emasculated war hero and photographer. Fancifully, Beals imagines Henchman to be the reembodiment of one of the most mysterious Arthurian legends, the Fisher King—the maimed and impotent ruler of a barren country of whom Perceval failed to ask the right questions. A myth with many permutations—and a blurred borderland between them—the Fisher King legend dovetails the various explanations Powell offers from his competing narrators as to why a talented young dancer would forsake her art to care for a feeble older man. Ostensibly a novel about gossip on a cruise ship, The Fisher King is much more: a highly stylized narrative infused with Greek mythology, legend, and satire.

What was life like for the scientists working at Los Alamos? Thomas McMahon imagines this life through the wide eyes of young Tim MacLaurin, the thirteen-year-old son of an MIT physicist who, inspired by a young woman named Maryann, worked on the project. Filled with the sensuous excitement of scientific discovery and the outrageous behavior of people pushed beyond their limits, Principles of American Nuclear Chemistry is a beautifully written coming-of-age story that explores the mysterious connections between love and work, inspiration and history.

Nach seinem auch als Film weltberühmt gewordenen Erstling ›Verdammt in alle Ewigkeit‹ und dem Folgeband ›Insel der Verdammten‹ beschließt James Jones mit diesem Roman seine große Trilogie über den Zweiten Weltkrieg. Die Helden kommen zurück. Jones erzählt die Geschichte von vier Männern, Angehörigen einer Infanteriekompanie, die mit der ersten großen Welle der Verwundeten vom Kriegsschauplatz im Südpazifik auf einem Lazarettschiff zurücktransportiert werden. Dabei zeichnet er ein nuancenreiches Porträt der Psyche der heimkehrenden Verwundeten, ihrer inneren Zerrissenheit, ihrer paradoxen Schuldgefühle, ihrer totalen Entfremdung von denen, »die nicht da draußen waren«. (Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine frühere Ausgabe.)
