Die Autobiographie

Atlantik


Jeder kennt die skurrile, aber stets freundliche Miss Marple und den exzentrisch-pedantischen Poirot, jeder kennt den Namen ihrer Schöpferin Agatha Christie, doch wer war der Mensch hinter der Schreibmaschine? Zu Lebzeiten öffentlichkeitsscheu, gab Agatha Christie keine Interviews und verriet nichts über ihr Privatleben. Erst posthum brach die Queen of Crime ihr Schweigen. Ein Jahr nach ihrem Tod wurde ihre Autobiographie veröffentlicht, in der sie von ihrer Kindheit, zwei Ehen und zwei Weltkriegen erzählte, von ihrem Leben als Autorin und von den archäologischen Expeditionen ihres zweiten Ehemannes Max Mallowan. Eine Autobiographie, die ebenso spannend und lebendig erzählt ist wie ihre Romane.

---

»Ihre Autobiographie, die ebenso auch eine Chronik Englands und des 20. Jahrhunderts ist, zeigt eine Frau voller Lebenslust und Charme und verrät, welche Genialität ihrem Erfolg zugrunde liegt.«

---

»Christies Autoobiographie,  in der sie von Kindheit, Ehen und Kriegen erzählt, zeigt eine Frau mit Lebenslust und verdeutlicht, welche Genialität ihrem Erfolg zugrunde liegt.«

---

»Das Schöne an der Lebensgeschichte der Agatha Christie ist, dass die so völlig uneitel geschrieben ist.«

---

»Unterhaltsam, bisweilen amüsant, dann wieder melancholisch gefärbt.«

---

»Was hat sie nicht alles erlebt! Und sie erzählt davon so unterhaltsam, dass es spannender und amüsanter zu lesen ist, als mancher Miss-Marple-Fall...«

---

»Ihre Autobiografie ist ein Glücksfall. Denn sie macht mit einer liebenswerten, einzigartigen Persönlichkeit bekannt, die an technischen und gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen ihrer Zeit teilhaben lässt.«

---

»(...) ist nicht weniger unterhaltsam, vergnüglich und spannend als ihre in aller Welt bekannten Detektiv- und Spionagegeschichten.«

---

Agatha Christie begründete den modernen britischen Kriminalroman und avancierte im Laufe ihres Lebens zur bekanntesten Krimiautorin aller Zeiten. Ihre beliebten Helden Hercule Poirot und Miss Marple sind - auch durch die Verfilmungen - einem Millionenpublikum bekannt. 1971 wurde sie in den Adelsstand erhoben. Agatha Christie starb 1976 im Alter von 85 Jahren.

The Metamorphosis

Goose Lane Editions


Winner, Best Atlantic Published Book Award

Shortlisted, Canadian Regional Design Award

---

"[A] magical history tour of the highest order ... Nova Scotia writer Bruce MacNab, according to experts cited all over, has simply nailed the untold apprenticeship of Harry Houdini as the magician performed throughtout Maritime communities more than a century ago. ... you cannot escape the fact that this is an absolutely exceptional book."

---

"Bruce MacNab's absolutely fascinating reconstruction of Harry Houdini's summer-long 1896 tour of Eastern Canada was Atlantic Canada's 'sleeper' book of the past year. ... It's a fabulous book to read and savour, with an engaging narrative, detailed research and striking visuals, including rare news clippings, vintage posters, illustrative maps and newly unearthed photographs. ... In his first book, the author has produced a gem that won the 2012 APMA Best Atlantic Published Book Award. ... It has great appeal to those with a passion for Victorian Canadian life, travelling circuses, magic tricks, fortune tellers and freak shows. Fans of the master magician as well as curious people of all ages will also marvel at Houdini's sleights of hand and the secrets of his illusions. ... Shedding new light on Houdini's career is quite an accomplishment, but it's the author's polished writing style and the richness of the illustration that makes The Metamorphosis a very entertaining summer read."

---

"It's a fascinating read."

---

Bruce MacNab grew up in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and attended the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology. Since then, he has worked as an author, carpenter, craftsman, tutor, and teacher.

Shadow of Doubt

Goose Lane Editions


Winner, New Brunswick Book Award for Non-Fiction

Shortlisted, Arthur Ellis Best Non-Fiction Crime Book Award

On July 6, 2011, Richard Oland, scion of the Moosehead brewing family, was murdered in his office. The brutal killing stunned the city of Saint John, and news of the crime reverberated across the country. In a shocking turn, and after a two-and-half-year police investigation, Oland's only son, Dennis, was arrested for second-degree murder.

CBC reporter Bobbi-Jean MacKinnon covered the Oland case from the beginning. In Shadow of Doubt, she examines the controversial investigation: from the day Richard Oland's battered body was discovered to the conclusion of Dennis Oland's trial, including the hotly debated verdict and its aftermath. Meticulously examining the evidence, MacKinnon vividly reconstructs the cases for both the prosecution and the defence. She delves into the Oland history, exploring the strained relationships, infidelities, and financial problems that, according to the Crown, provided motives for murder.

Shadow of Doubt is a revealing look at a sensational crime, the tribulations of a prominent family, and the inner workings of the justice system that led to Dennis Oland's contentious conviction.

---

"Bobbi-Jean MacKinnon's Shadow of Doubt provides a fly-on-the-wall viewpoint to one of Canada's most sensational murder cases. The reader is taken on a roller-coaster ride from the crime scene to the grieving family to the cops, the Crown, and the jury trial. It's an epic tale that both engages and teaches — Canada's criminal justice system with all its twists and turns is in full view right from crime to verdict."

---

"Shadow of Doubt is a fast-paced account of one of the most sensational murder trials in recent history. Bobbi-Jean MacKinnon covered the case from start to finish and loads her story with new details and revealing anecdotes, briskly sketching how a family soap opera turned to tragedy. For Oland trial junkies, this is the big, satisfying hit they've been waiting for — by the only journalist who could have told the story so compellingly."

---

Bobbi-Jean MacKinnon is a reporter and web editor for the CBC, and worked previously at the Toronto Star and the Telegraph-Journal (Saint John). She has been a finalist for a National Newspaper Award and three Atlantic Journalism Awards, including one for her early reporting on the Richard Oland murder in 2011. This is her first book.

Almost a Great Escape

Goose Lane Editions


Winner of the W.O. Mitchell Award, the Wilfrid Eggleston Award for Non-Fiction, and the Alberta Readers' Choice Award

Following his mothers death in 2004, Tyler Trafford discovers an album of old letters and creased photographs that reveal a mother he never knew, a man hes never heard of, and a love affair doomed by class and circumstance. The letters are from Jens Müller, a Norwegian pilot who trained in Canada during the early days of World War II, one of only three prisoners who would make it home after The Great Escape.

In Almost a Great Escape, Trafford takes us on a journey of emotional discovery and dramatic disclosure as he reconstructs his mothers life, from her youth as a wealthy Montreal debutante to her final days as a broken but unbent casualty of a loveless marriage. His search for answers takes him across Canada and then across the ocean to Norway, hoping to learn more about the mystery of this secret relationship.

Written with a fluidity fueled by heart-wrenching honesty, Traffords unconventional memoir confirms that while you can survive your past, you can never escape from it. Almost a Great Escape includes photographs as well as excerpts and reproductions of telegrams and letters Jens sent from England and Stalag Luft III.

---

"Tyler Trafford exposes an elaborately intertwined story of family, romance, war, and love's aftermath. His multi-genre approach is both lyrical and admirably adapted to the challenge of the story he both unearths and illuminates."

---

"As his own reflections intermingle with Alice's letters, the book becomes a moving story of love between a mother who dreamed of being a writer and a son who became one."

---

"Tyler Trafford uses his creative ingenuity to bring the story of his late mother's secret love to life. Told with great flair and extraordinary skill, this captivating tale is an engrossing voyage of discovery and revelation."

---

"Trafford is a mesmerizing writer with a style all his own.... The story of a secret love affair, it is a wonderfully twisted story of a Westmount upper class family, romance in war, and the scars that come from not taking a chance on love."

---

"This is not a sentimental love story. It belongs in another, higher category. It's one that people of both sexes and any age past puberty will appreciate. And incidentally, it's a fine piece of writing and composing."

---

"Letters in love and war reveal the most about the human condition. Tyler Trafford takes us inside a wartime romance, situates it at the heart of the most celebrated escape of the Second World War, and delivers a moving account of his own search to understand a parent and his own condition."

---

"There are a handful of characters in a reader's life that are real, their wakes resonating like ghosts. Such is Alice Tyler, conjured by her son, writer Tyler Trafford, in his epistolary biography, Almost a Great Escape. She is so evoked you will taste her in a glass of vodka.... Trafford's writing swims with the heady heat of a slow, balmy, never-ending childhood summer. He builds towers with his words, stacking adjectives to describe the slow-motion escape of a lovesick war hero and building to a satisfying, thought-provoking conclusion."

---

Tyler Trafford worked for many years as a reporter and editor first with the Calgary Herald, then in Australia with the Australian and later with the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. When he returned to Canada, he began writing biographies, histories, and works of fiction, including The Story of Blue Eye, which was shortlisted for the 2005 Grant McEwan Author's Award. He now divides his time between Calgary and his studio on the Oldman River near Pincher Creek, Alberta.
