This is the first major biography of V.S. Naipaul, Nobel Prize winner and one of the most compelling literary figures of the last fifty years. With great feeling for his formidable body of work, and exclusive access to his private papers and personal recollections, Patrick French has produced a lucid and astonishing account of this enigmatic genius: one which looks sensitively and unflinchingly at his relationships, his development as a writer and as a man, his outspokenness, his peerless creativity, and his extraordinary and enduring position both outside and at the very centre of literary culture. ‘Its clarity, honesty, even-handedness, its panoramic range and close emotional focus, above all its virtually unprecedented access to the dark secret life at its heart, make it one of the most gripping biographies I’ve ever read’ Hilary Spurling, Observer ‘A brilliant biography: exemplary in its thoroughness, sympathetic but tough in tone . . . Reading it I was enthralled – and frequently amused (how incredibly funny Naipaul can be!)’ Spectator ‘A masterly performance . . . If a better biography is published this year, I shall be astonished’ Allan Massie, Literary Review ‘Remarkable. This biography will change the way we read Naipaul’s books’ Craig Brown, Book of the Week, Mail on Sunday

Horace Fletcher, an American health-food advocate of the Victorian era, earned the nickname ""The Great Masticator"" through his advocation that food needed to be chewed thirty-two times before being swallowed. At the age of 58, he conducted a series of strength and endurance experiments at the Yale Gymnasium versus college athletes which claimed that Fletcher could outperform these athletes. Fletcher also had a great interest in human excreta, believing that it evidenced one's true nutrition. He also advocated for a low-protein diet as a means of health and well-being. Through this 1913 volume Fletcher explains his theories of health and well-being and how, you too, can become a Fletcherite.

Radikal, provokativ und erhellend zugleich: Nagels berühmter Essay von 1974 ist einer der am häufigsten zitierten philosophischen Aufsätze des 20. Jahrhunderts. Kann ein Mensch wirklich verstehen, wie es ist, eine Fledermaus zu sein? Natürlich nicht. Er kann sich nur vorstellen, wie es sich anfühlen könnte. Doch die spezifischen Empfindungen und Erlebnisse von Fledermäusen haben einen so anderen Charakter, dass der uns grundsätzlich verborgen bleibt. Letztendlich zeigt Nagel damit dem Menschen in seiner Fähigkeit zu erkennen und mitzuempfinden seine Grenzen auf. Ulrich Diehl erklärt in einem Nachwort die besondere Bedeutung und spannende Wirkungsgeschichte des Textes.
