'Honest, funny, heartfelt ... I loved it' Cathy Kelly Clear-eyed, touching, forthright and funny, In My Mother's Shoes is Alison Walsh's delightful account of three generations of mothers - her Nana, leading light of the Irish Countrywomen's Association, indomitable in all things except deferring to her husband; her mother, whose glamorous career as a 1960s air hostess was cut cruelly short by the simple act of getting married; and Alison herself, a modern woman whose life would not be thwarted by such lack of choice. Or would it? 'Cheerful, intelligent, funny and shockingly sensible ... Buy it. Read it. Pass it on.' Judith O'Reilly, author of Wife in the North 'Honest and immensely readable ... many mothers will find themselves nodding along in recognition. I will be passing it on and - more tellingly - looking for it back' Sunday Business Post 'Yay for Alison Walsh! ... An adroit, and honest, account of having babies (in the UK and Ireland), of bringing up babies (ditto), of being a Celtic Tiger mum, working all the hours God sends, to being a-stay-at-home mum, plus all the messy compromises in between' Sunday Independent

This 1914 short story, loosely based upon the Nativity, finds an Irish couple distraught that their son, daughter-in-law and grandson haven't arrived for Christmas. Unbeknownst to them, the son travels to their home by a different route than his wife and child. The parents get no word of their plans, and the daughter-in-law and baby must walk through a stormy night to their house. She finds their stable, which the father has decorated in Christmas fashion and housed his cow and donkey. Exhausted, she settles into the hay and sleeps, where she is found, safe and sound, by the rest of the family. This edition of the book contains the four original illustrations, rejuvenated.

"Von Zeit und Strom" ist der zweiter Roman des amerikanischen Autors Thomas Wolfe. Es ist eine fiktive Autobiographie und gehört zu den bemerkenswertesten Zeugnissen amerikanischer Erzählkunst des 20. Jahrhunderts. Thomas Wolfe (1900-1938) war ein amerikanischer Schriftsteller. In dem expressionistischen Dichter Hans Schiebelhuth fand er für seine ersten beiden Romane einen kongenialen Übersetzer, der dazu beitrug, dass Wolfe sich zeitweise in Deutschland höher geschätzt fühlte als in seiner Heimat. In Amerika gehörte William Faulkner, in Deutschland Hermann Hesse zu seinen Bewunderern. Aus dem Buch: "Immens und plötzlich und mit der abrupten Nahheit, der teleskopischen Magie, mit der sich Dinge im Traum ereignen, erschien der englische Dampfer an der Küste Frankreichs; er kam näher und ragte auf mit der eigenartigen Unvermitteltheit, mit der mächtige, riesenhafte Gegenstände, die sich mit großer Geschwindigkeit fortbewegen, näher kommen und aufragen; man hatte nicht das Erlebnis der Anlaufbewegung, des allmählichen, zunehmenden Größerwerdens, es war vielmehr so, daß das Bild des Dampfers von einer Größe übergangslos in eine andre verschmolz, so, wie manchmal im Kino die Gesichter der Menschen auf der Leinwand aus der Normalgröße in einer Kette von schnellen Überblendungen in Großaufnahme übermächtig eindrucksvoll vor den Zuschauer gebracht werden, ruckweise, schußweise, so, wie der Geist aus der entstöpselten Zauberflasche im Märchen."

Eine Lady lässt sich nicht unterkriegen ... England in den 1930er-Jahren. In einem Dorf in der Grafschaft Devon vertraut sich eine Lady mit messerscharfem Verstand ihrem einzigen Freund an – dem Tagebuch. Die Welt hat sich gegen sie verschworen, im Haushalt regiert das Chaos, die Köchin droht mit Kündigung, und ihre beiden überaus reizenden Kinder Vicky und Robin neigen dazu, stets am falschen Ort zur falschen Zeit für Unheil zu sorgen. Von ihrem Gatten Robert, der sich am liebsten hinter der Times verschanzt, hat die Lady keine Hilfe zu erwarten. So kämpft sie allein um Haltung bei Teegesellschaften, Dorffesten, Abendeinladungen und vor allem, wenn sie der grässlich perfekten Lady B. begegnet, die ihre Eitelkeiten wie einen Pudel mit sich herumführt. Ein Glück, dass wenigstens ihr Tagebuch die Lady auf dem Lande nicht im Stich lässt ...
