Sinclair Lewis’ Roman aus dem Jahr 1935 führt einen Antihelden vor, der mit seinen Hetzreden die Begeisterung unzufriedener Wähler entfacht. Durch seine Lügen und eine Rhetorik des Populismus und der Ressentiments wird er Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten. Das klingt vertraut? „Eine unheimliche Vorwegnahme der aktuellen Ereignisse.“ The Guardian „Ein Populist im Weißen Haus? Literaturnobelpreisträger Sinclair Lewis hat es vor 80 Jahren durchgespielt.“ DIE ZEIT „Sinclair Lewis ist wieder aktuell.“ der Freitag „Ein Meister des absoluten Realismus." Bob Dylan 1935 in den USA ein aufsehenerregender Bestseller, heute wieder eine Sensation und aktuell wie selten zuvor. In der Übersetzung des bekannten Exilautors und Kleist-Preis-Trägers Hans Meisel – mit einem Nachwort von Jan Brandt. Sinclair Lewis wusste durch seine Frau Dorothy Thompson, Auslandskorrespondentin in Berlin, über den Aufstieg der Nazis Bescheid. In den USA beobachtete er, wie die Populisten nach Wirtschaftskrise und Sozialreformen des New Deal immer weiter an Einfluss gewannen. Der radikale Senator Huey Long versuchte Präsident Roosevelt aus dem Amt zu drängen, bevor Long 1935 einem Attentat zum Opfer fiel. Lewis diente er als Vorbild für den fanatischen Verführer Buzz Windrip in seinem Roman. Buzz Windrip, für seine Gegner ein „ungebildeter Lügner mit idiotischer Weltanschauung“ und ein gefährlicher Populist, will Präsidentschaftskandidat werden. Er gibt vor, sich für die kleinen Leute einzusetzen, und verspricht, „aus Amerika wieder ein stolzes Land zu machen“. Trotz völlig unglaubwürdiger Versprechen laufen ihm die Wähler zu, und er zieht ins Weiße Haus ein. Sogleich regiert er wie ein absolutistischer Herrscher, beschneidet die Freiheiten der Minderheiten, legt sich mit Mexiko an und lässt seine Kritiker rabiat verfolgen. Einer davon ist der liberale Zeitungsherausgeber Doremus Jessup, der sich nicht mundtot machen lassen will.

The first rule about fight club is you don't talk about fight club. Chuck Palahniuk showed himself to be his generation’s most visionary satirist in this, his first book. Fight Club’s estranged narrator leaves his lackluster job when he comes under the thrall of Tyler Durden, an enigmatic young man who holds secret after-hours boxing matches in the basement of bars. There, two men fight "as long as they have to." This is a gloriously original work that exposes the darkness at the core of our modern world.

From New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland, comes a sexy new standalone novel. The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn’t exactly make a good impression. I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date. He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice. So I told him to mind his own damn business—his own tall, gorgeous, full-of-himself damn business—and went back to my miserable date. When he walked by my table, he smirked, and I watched his arrogant, sexy ass walk back to his date. I couldn’t help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked. When the gorgeous stranger and his equally hot date suddenly appeared at our table, I thought he was going to rat me out. But instead, he pretended we knew each other and joined us—telling elaborate, embarrassing stories about our fake childhood. My date suddenly went from boring to bizarrely exciting. When it was over and we parted ways, I thought about him more than I would ever admit, even though I knew I’d never see him again. I mean, what were the chances I’d run into him again in a city with eight million people? Then again... What were the chances a month later he’d wind up being my new sexy boss?

A deep-dive into human behavior in an epic story of science, society, sex, and survival, from one of the greatest American novelists today, T. C. Boyle, the acclaimed, bestselling, author of the PEN/ Faulkner Award–winning World’s End and The Harder They Come. It is 1994, and in the desert near Tillman, Arizona, forty miles from Tucson, a grand experiment involving the future of humanity is underway. As climate change threatens the earth, eight scientists, four men and four women dubbed the "Terranauts," have been selected to live under glass in E2, a prototype of a possible off-earth colony. Their sealed, three-acre compound comprises five biomes—rainforest, savanna, desert, ocean, and marsh—and enough wildlife, water, and vegetation to sustain them. Closely monitored by an all-seeing Mission Control, this New Eden is the brainchild of ecovisionary Jeremiah Reed, aka G.C.—"God the Creator"—for whom the project is both an adventure in scientific discovery and a momentous publicity stunt. In addition to their roles as medics, farmers, biologists, and survivalists, his young, strapping Terranauts must impress watchful visitors and a skeptical media curious to see if E2’s environment will somehow be compromised, forcing the Ecosphere’s seal to be broken—and ending the mission in failure. As the Terranauts face increased scrutiny and a host of disasters, both natural and of their own making, their mantra: "Nothing in, nothing out," becomes a dangerously ferocious rallying cry. Told through three distinct narrators—Dawn Chapman, the mission’s pretty, young ecologist; Linda Ryu, her bitter, scheming best friend passed over for E2; and Ramsay Roothorp, E2’s sexually irrepressible Wildman—The Terranauts brings to life an electrifying, pressured world in which connected lives are uncontrollably pushed to the breaking point. With characteristic humor and acerbic wit, T.C. Boyle indelibly inhabits the perspectives of the various players in this survivalist game, probing their motivations and illuminating their integrity and fragility to illustrate the inherent fallibility of human nature itself.
