Am Ende des Romans steht eine Eskalation: ein Faustschlag, mit dem ein Tourguide in Treblinka einen Dokumentarfilmer niederstreckt. Doch wie konnte es dazu kommen? In einem Bericht an seinen ehemaligen Chef schildert der Mann, wie die Menschen, die er jahrelang durch NS-Gedenkstätten führte, mit der Erinnerung an den Holocaust umgehen. Er fragt nach der Verbindung zwischen Juden damals und Israelis heute, nach Machtverherrlichung und danach, was Menschen zu Mördern macht. Und er beobachtet Schülergruppen, die sich in Fahnen hüllen, scheinheilige Minister oder manipulative Künstler, er beobachtet, wie ein jeder in dem Grauen der Geschichte vor allem eines zu erkennen meint: einen Nutzen für sich selbst. Yishai Sarid, einer der bekanntesten Autoren Israels, wirft in seinem Roman ein neues Licht auf die Erinnerungskultur, wagt sich an vermeintlich unantastbare Fragen und stellt in stillem, unaufgeregtem Ton eingefahrene Denkmuster infrage. »Yishai Sarid kann so schreiben, dass es einem mitten ins Herz zielt.« NDR Kultur »Ein Schlag in die Magengrube. Ein starkes Buch und ein absolutes Muss.« IDF Radio »Ein schlankes Buch, das lange nachwirkt.« Haaretz

»Heute bin ich seit sechzehn Jahren auf dieser heißen, schrecklichen Erde«, lautet der erste Satz dieses fulminanten Debütromans aus dem brodelnden Herzen Singapurs - und dann wird alles noch viel heißer und schrecklicher. »Schöne Monster« erzählt die Geschichte von drei Frauen, eine Geschichte von Betrug und Trauer, Erinnerung und der dunklen Kraft der Schönheit. Die Sprache, die Sharlene Teo dafür findet, ist hypnotisch. Und so klebrig wie die Hitze Singapurs. »Ein bemerkenswertes, außergewöhnliches Buch - Figuren voller Leben und Witz.« Ian McEwan

For fans of Pretty Little Liars, Little Monsters is a new psychological thriller, from the author of The Darkest Corners, about appearances versus reality and the power of manipulation amongst teenage girls. Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. When she moved in with her father, she stepped into a brand-new life. A life with a stepbrother, a stepmother, and strangest of all, an adoring younger half sister. Kacey´s new life is eerily charming compared with the wild highs and lows of the old one she lived with her volatile mother. And everyone is so nice in Broken Falls-she´s even been welcomed into a tight new circle of friends. Bailey and Jade invite her to do everything with them. Which is why it´s so odd when they start acting distant. And when they don´t invite her to the biggest party of the year, it doesn´t exactly feel like an accident. But Kacey will never be able to ask, because Bailey never makes it home from that party. Suddenly, Broken Falls doesn´t seem so welcoming after all-especially once everyone starts looking to the new girl for answers. Kacey is about to learn some very important lessons: Sometimes appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes when you´re the new girl, you shouldn´t trust anyone.

A therapist creates moving portraits of five of her most memorable patients, men and women she considers psychological heroes. Catherine Gildiner is a bestselling memoirist, a novelist, and a psychologist in private practice for twenty-five years. In Good Morning, Monster , she focuses on five patients who overcame enormous trauma--people she considers heroes. With a novelist´s storytelling gift, Gildiner recounts the details of their struggles, their paths to recovery, and her own tale of growth as a therapist. The five cases include a successful but lonely musician suffering sexual dysfunction; a young woman whose father abandoned her and her siblings in a rural cottage; an Indigenous man who´d endured great trauma at a residential school; a young woman whose abuse at the hands of her father led to a severe personality disorder; and a glamorous workaholic whose negligent mother had greeted her each morning with ´´Good morning, Monster.´´ Each patient presents a mystery, one that will only be unpacked over years. They seek Gildiner´s help to overcome an immediate challenge in their lives, but discover that the source of their suffering has been long buried. It will take courage to face those realities, and creativity and resourcefulness from their therapist. Each patient embodies self-reflection, stoicism, perseverance, and forgiveness as they work unflinchingly to face the truth. Gildiner´s account of her journeys with them is moving, insightful, and sometimes humorous. It offers a behind-the-scenes look into the therapist´s office and explains how the process can heal even the most unimaginable wounds.

I was pretty sure I knew better than to make a deal with a demon in the middle of the night after drinking too much. Especially when he broke into my flat and sat on my bed, not to mention my ceiling. But I did it anyway. What can I say? He said he´d turn me into the best detective in the country. You gotta admit, that´s pretty tempting. Then I found out that I could have gone my whole life without ever knowing about the Monster Tree. *** Detective Jayalakshmi Watson has a problem. She´s tired of being a detective and tired of not living up to her father´s expectations. She wants to quit, she´s about to quit, until a demon calling himself Enj suddenly shows up in her room one night and makes her a deal. The next thing she knows, she´s solving the weirdest crimes picked up by the department with a tendency towards grisly murders. The demon´s nose for human guilt is leading her directly to the culprit. But surely a deal with a creature from the Underworld isn´t all accolades and pats on the back, right? Monster Tree contains the first two episodes of Jaya´s adventures with her demonic partner, solving weird crimes that may or may not be connected to the Monster Tree.
