Heather Forester is losing her grip on reality. She turns up at the airport to meet her pilot husband, Brett - and then she remembers: he´s not coming back. Brett died months ago, leaving her lost in the crippling, confusing maze of widowhood. Now alone with her seven-year-old twins, Heather craves the support of her mother and brother, who are halfway across the world in Scotland. But when she moves her fractured family to her homeland, their lives change in ways she never could have anticipated. As her children struggle to fit in to their new home, family, and school, Heather also wrestles with the painful truth that she has become a stranger in her own hometown. Surrounded by the rugged, breathtaking beauty of the Isle of Skye´s rocky coastline, velvet moors, and lush forests, Heather must face challenges old and new as she puts her life back together and learns the healing power of family. 1.

Matthes liest Weiner - Ein Ereignis! Das erste Buch des Schöpfers von Mad Men: Ein kleiner Band. Ein großer Roman. Mark und Karen Breakstone haben spät geheiratet. Bald kündigt sich Nachwuchs an, die Tochter wird auf den Namen Heather getauft, und die kleine, wie es scheint, recht perfekte Familie lebt ihr von materiellen Sorgen freies Leben in Manhattan. Doch das Dreieck Vater-Mutter-Kind ist labil. Heather, das von allen vergötterte Mamakind, verändert sich, als sie in die Pubertät kommt, sie wendet sich von der Mutter ab, die das nicht verkraftet. Parallel erzählt Matthew Weiner das Schicksal von Bobby Klasky, Kind einer drogensüchtigen Prostituierten, geboren in die Hölle hinein. Sein Lebensweg führt ihn nach einer Vergewaltigung ins Gefängnis, wo ihm der letzte Rest von Menschlichkeit abhanden kommt.

The Breakstone family arrange themselves around their daughter, Heather, and the world seems to follow: beautiful, compassionate, entrancing, she is the greatest blessing in their lives of Manhattan luxury. But as Heather grows - and her empathy sharpens to a point, and her radiance attracts more and more dark interest - their perfect existence starts to fracture. Meanwhile, a very different life, one raised in poverty and in violence, is beginning its own malign orbit around Heather. Matthew Weiner - the creator of Mad Men - has crafted an extraordinary first novel of incredible pull and menace.

Plain Heathen Mischief ups the existential ante, as Joel King, a defrocked Baptist minister, finds life even more bedeviling once he´s served six months for a career-ending crime he might not even have committed. Now his incommunicado wife wants a divorce, the teenage vixen of his disgrace is suing him for a cool $5 million, a fresh start in Montana offers no hope for ex-cons of any religious persuasion, and the refuge provided by his sister turns as nasty as his parole officer. Talk about a crisis of faith. On the upside,a solicitous member of Joel´s former congregation invites him into a scam that could yield some desperately needed cash, and soon the down-on-his-luck preacher is involved with a flock of charming con men, crooked lawyers, and conniving youth. In a feat of bravura storytelling, Martin Clark ranges from the cross to the double cross, from Virginia to Las Vegas, from jail cells to trout streams, as he follows his Job-like hero through dubious choices and high-dollar insurance hustles to a redemption that no listener could possibly predict. Wildly imaginative, at times comic, at times profoundly sobering, and even more audacious than his wonderfully idiosyncratic debut, Plain Heathen Mischief is a spiritual revelation of the first order. 1.
