Sie war so schön. Jetzt ist sie tot. In einem Badesee bei einer australischen Kleinstadt wird die Leiche einer wunderschönen Frau gefunden. Der Tatort ist mit Rosenblättern geschmückt. Für Detective Gemma Woodstock und ihren Partner Felix McKinnon ein komplexer Fall. Denn die Tote, Rosalind Ryan, war Gemmas Klassenkameradin und immer von Geheimnissen umgeben. Alle behaupten, Rosalind geliebt und bewundert zu haben: der Direktor der Schule, an der sie unterrichtete; die Schüler, denen sie den Kopf verdrehte; ihr wohlhabender Vater und ihre drei Brüder. Stück für Stück entfaltet Sarah Bailey in ihrem packenden Thriller die Abgründe ihrer Figuren, jede auf ihre Weise gefangen in einem Netz aus Lügen und verdrängter Schuld.

Die Legende von Addie Bundren beginnt und endet am selben Ort: in Yoknapatawpha County. Vier Tage nach ihrem Tod – die Bussarde kreisen schon – machen sich die Hinterbliebenen auf den Weg in die entfernt gelegene Kreisstadt Jefferson. Denn Addie hat ihrem Mann Anse das Versprechen abgenommen, sie im Grab der Ihrigen beizusetzen. Doch auf dem Weg gerät der Leichenzug in immer neue Schwierigkeiten: Im Hochwasser stürzt eine Brücke ein; bei der Durchquerung des Flusses gehen Fuhrwerk und Sarg beinahe verloren. Und zu allem Unglück bricht sich der älteste Sohn, Cash, das bereits verkrüppelte Bein, während Dewey Dell, die einzige Tochter, neben der Verantwortung für den Jüngsten an einem eigenen Geheimnis schon schwer genug zu tragen hat. In wechselnden Kapiteln kommen die engsten Angehörigen zu Wort, aber auch Freunde und Nachbarn, der Arzt und der Pastor. Und irgendwann erhebt sogar die Verstorbene selbst die Stimme – bis am Ende dieser tragikomischen letzten Reise Lügen, Hoffnungen und Zwistigkeiten, kurz: die wahren Familienzusammenhänge, offenliegen. Faulkner selbst bezeichnete diesen 1930 erstmals erschienenen Roman als seinen besten, und seine Leser stimmen bis heute mit ihm überein. «Als ich im Sterben lag» ist ein Klassiker der Weltliteratur – überreich an eindringlichen Charakteren und Stimmungen, angesiedelt in der vielleicht berühmtesten fiktiven Landschaft der modernen Literatur.

"The Qualls Concise English Grammar "is a text that treats specifically of North American English. American-Canadian English-"ACE"-is both the native dialect of the predominant majority (almost 74%) of native English speakers, and is the standard for International Business. "ACE "is the oldest dialect of English, preserving capabilities and distinctions of vocabulary that have been lost in British English and other dialects. "ACE" is, in fact, closer (particularly in grammar and pronunciation) to the language of Shakespeare than is modern British English. This grammar is written to the traditional standards of English teaching, in which understandability and correctness took precedence over the pseudo-psychology of undisciplinable self-esteem-ism. The grammar starts with a quick, high-level survey of the English language, aspects of its history and dialects. Then it presents schemas of the parts of speech and aspects of each that will be treated in the text. The grammar itself proceeds through each part of speech, starting with general descriptions and progressing to more detailed points and explanations. After this, aspects of the sentence are covered, followed by concise rules for capitalization and punctuation. Within the section for each part of speech and for the sentence are given points of correct or suggested usage. Copious examples are given for each description, rule or suggestion. The final part of the text covers Structural analysis of sentences and the clauses of which they are constructed. Parsing is treated first, with parsed selections taken from the examples given in the Grammar portion of the text. After that, extensive instructions are given for traditional diagramming and for an updated adaptation of traditional diagramming called "Qualls Concise Diagramming." "QCD" is built on the constructs of Reed/Kellogg diagramming, but incorporates improvements, in particular to representation of compound and complex components that too often resulted in indistinct representation or in spaghettification of the traditional diagrams. This book is an excellent study aid for the higher levels of grade school, for middle school, high school and even college students. It is vital for anyone whose job depends on the quality and effectiveness of their use of English, that is, all those in business, in broadcasting and those involved in writing, whether that be informal, commercial or literary. The book's extremely thorough presentation of diagramming will please those Americans who have become frustrated with the horrible decline both in standards of teaching materials and in the thoroughness of grammatical instruction. These will want to get copies to give to those friends and family members preparing for college entrance tests or for jobs that are highly language influenced or dependent.
