Bohane ist ein heimtückischer, mörderischer, intriganter Ort – und verdammt sexy. Eine Stadt voll brutaler Killer und Ganoven. Das Buch erzählt von einem Bandenführer, dessen Herrschaft zu Ende geht, und ist anders als alles, was Sie zuvor gelesen haben. Ein Buch für alle, die eine grellbunte, vergnügte Zeit verbringen wollen. Die einst bedeutende Stadt Bohane an der irischen Westküste liegt darnieder. Es herrschen Gewalt und Chaos, die Clans sind gespalten. Auch wenn noch ein wenig vom alten Glanz geblieben ist, findet das eigentliche Leben in den Slums und verwahrlosten Wohnblocks von Smoketown statt. Scheinbar seit Ewigkeiten steht alles unter der Kontrolle von Logan Hartnett, dem adretten Paten der Hartnett-Fancy-Gang. Aber es liegt Ärger in der Luft. Gerüchte gehen um, dass Logans Erzfeind Gant Broderick nach fünfundzwanzig Jahren zurück in der Stadt ist, und seine Schergen entwickeln auf einmal ihren ganz eigenen Ehrgeiz. Logans bessere Hälfte drängt ihn, alles aufzugeben und sich zurückzuziehen. Doch da kennt die Missus ihren Langen Lulatsch schlecht.

Das javanische Schattentheater wayang kulit gilt als der Inbegriff javanischer Kunst und Ethik. Anhand einer historischen Analyse der wayang kulit Rezeptionsgeschichte kann jedoch gezeigt werden, dass der Stellenwert des wayang kulit als -klassische- Theaterform zum grossen Teil Produkt der in der Kolonialzeit entstandenen und von der kolonialen Elite weiterentwickelten Interpretationen ist. Wayang kulit wird in einen historischen und sozio-politischen Rahmen gestellt, um zu analysieren, wie die wissenschaftlichen Kategorien Europas das heutige Verstandnis vom wayang kulit gepragt und verandert haben."

Your future as a writer is in your hands. Whether you are a newcomer or an accomplished professional, a novelist, story writer, or a writer of nonfiction, you will find this book a wealth of immediately useful guidance not available anywhere else. As Sol Stein, renowned editor, author, and instructor, explains, "This is not a book of theory. It is a book of useable solutions-- how to fix writing that is flawed, how to improve writing that is good, how to create interesting writing in the first place." You will find one of the great unspoken secrets of craftsmanship in Chapter 5, called "Markers: The Key to Swift Characterization." In Chapter 7, Stein reveals for he first time in print the wonderful system for creating instant conflict developed in the Playwrights Group of the Actors Studio, of which he was a founder. In "Secrets of Good Dialogue," the premier teacher of dialogue gives you the instantly useable techniques that not only make verbal exchanges exciting but that move the story forward immediately. You won't need to struggle with flashbacks or background material after you've read Chapter 14, which shows you how to bring background into the foreground. Writers of both fiction and nonfiction will relish the amphetamines for speeding up pace, and the many ways to liposuction flab, as well as how to tap originality and recognize what successful titles have in common. You'll discover literary values that enhance writing, providing depth and resonance. You'll bless the day you read Chapters 32 and 33 and discover why revising by starting at page one can be a serious mistake, and how to revise without growing cold on your manuscript. In the pages of this book, nonfiction writers will find a passport to the new revolution in journalism and a guide to using the techniques of fiction to enhance nonfiction. Fresh, useful, informative, and fun to read and reread, Stein on Writing is a book you will mark up, dog-ear, and cherish.

Mit seinem Debütroman "Die Nackten und die Toten" wurde der 25-jährige Norman Mailer über Nacht weltberühmt. 1944 meldete er sich freiwillig als Soldat und kämpfte auf amerikanischer Seite im Pazifik. Als Augenzeuge beschreibt er im Stile einer Reportage den Alltag an der Front mit all seinen Schrecken. Vielmehr aber beschäftigt sich Mailer mit den Beschreibungen seiner Kameraden, mit ihren Gefühlen, ihrer Angst und ihrem Leidensdruck. Dadurch werden sie aus ihrer Anonymität sichtbar und lebendig gemacht. Neben der persönlichen Geschichte steht immer die Frage im Vordergrund: Was geht in einem Menschen vor, der auf Befehl sogar in den Tod geht?
