Er ist wieder da

Eichborn


Sommer 2011. Adolf Hitler erwacht auf einem leeren Grundstück in Berlin-Mitte. Ohne Krieg, ohne Partei, ohne Eva, dafür unter Tausenden von Ausländern und Angela Merkel.

66 Jahre nach seinem vermeintlichen Ende startet er gegen jegliche Wahrscheinlichkeit eine neue Karriere im Fernsehen. Dieser Hitler ist keine Witzfigur, sondern erschreckend real. Und das Land, auf das er trifft, ist es auch: zynisch, hemmungslos erfolgsgeil und vollkommen chancenlos gegenüber dem Demagogen und der Sucht nach Quoten, Klicks und "Gefällt mir!"-Buttons.

Eine Persiflage? Eine Satire? Polit-Comedy? All das und mehr: Dieser Roman ist ein literarisches Kabinettstück erster Güte.

Östlich der Sonne, westlich des Mondes - Die Suche einer Frau nach Freiheit, Abenteuer und nicht zuletzt nach der Liebe.

Oxford, 1853. Maya Greenwood, große Bewunderin des Afrikaforschers Richard Francis Burton, träumt von exotischen Ländern und aufregenden Abenteuern. Als ihr Ralph Garrett den Hof macht, der in der britischen Armee in Indien dient, rückt ein abenteuerliches Leben in der Fremde für die junge Frau in greifbare Nähe. Ihre Familie ist jedoch gegen die Verbindung, und so brennt Maya kurzerhand mit Ralph durch. Doch er wird ins unwirtliche Arabien statt nach Indien entsandt, und Maya fällt in die Hände von Beduinen. Dort erlebt sie den wahren Orient - und muss sich eingestehen, dass der Anführer der Wüstenkrieger, der charismatische Rashad al-Shaheen, auch ihr Herz gefangen hält ...

Dieser epische Abenteuerroman über ein kaum bekanntes Kapitel britischer Kolonialgeschichte verwebt das Leben und die Reisen von Richard Francis Burton mit der fiktiven Geschichte von Maya Greenwood - inspiriert von dem "kleinen Mädchen" in Burtons Gedicht "Vergangene Lieben".

Miri's Song

BWL Publishing Inc.


As a prostitute, Miri unlawfully plies her trade during the Roman occupation of Palestine. She hates her life, and knowing she will eventually get caught, allows men to gather loudly at her door. Soon after, the authorities drag her to a quarry to be stoned, but moments before her death, Joshua saves her. He introduces her into his world, a place where he teaches a new spiritual philosophy to the multitude. Miri is soon swept into a magnitude of emotions ranging from profound self-loathing to the joys of love—love for a man who has only weeks to live. Bound on this earth by human frailty, she listens to his mysterious, but confusing teachings. As Joshua's mistress, and later, his wife, she finally realizes the beauty of his doctrine. It opens her eyes to the mysteries of the universe, and this new faith accompanies her when she finally leaves Palestine forever.

I came across this book a few weeks ago while looking for something different to read. It is a well written non-traditional account of the life and message of Jousha / Jesus. The story is told from Mary Magdalene's point of view. It is her story. She as his Wife gives a moving insiders view to the events and outcome of the life of the most famous man who has ever lived. It is of course "Fiction". However in light of recent events where ancient documents have been uncovered that show Jesus may very well have had a wife. It opens the readers mind that there may have been more to the story than traditional renditions have provided. I recommended it as a good read that will leave you wondering, hoping, loving, and respecting a man and a woman who lived well before our time.

Born in her grandparent’s old miner’s cottage overlooking the River Tyne, June Gadsby’s life has been as interesting as any published saga.

Her teachers realised her talent as an artist, but were surprised when she announced, at the age of eight, that she intended to become an ‘author’. More than once she heard the words of her strict, Victorian grandmother: “you’ll never make it…” Her mother thought that June’s writing was a ‘nice, but unsociable little hobby’. But June refused to lose sight of her ambition. On leaving school she started work as an office junior, taught herself shorthand and typing and became a secretary, eventually attaining one of the highest posts as Administrative Assistant [Executive Medical Secretary] at Newcastle University’s Medical School. It wasn’t until she wrote about her years of rejection for a Writer’s magazine that she was noticed by a literary agent.

Gypsy Spirit

BWL Publishing Inc. | Tango of Death


Gypsy Spirit is the story of fifteen year-old Zilka Sucuri, a Gypsy girl who is thrust into the horrors of the Holocaust. Her life of traveling from town to town, singing and dancing the Gypsy way comes to an unconscionable stop when a SS death squad shoot every man, woman, and child in her kumpania. If she had not literally been up a tree, she would have been among those lying dead in a mass grave. Her lungo drom (the long road) takes her across Poland, Austria, and Germany in a driving struggle to help an American pilot return safely to his unit so he can return to bomb the many concentration, work, and death camps all across Poland and Germany. Her efforts reveal the truths of Belzec, the challenges of the partisans, and the burning desire to survive to be a living witness of what truly happened to the non-Aryans of Hitler’s Germany. Gypsy Spirit is a story of the driving spirit of a Gypsy girl, who took it upon herself to document the truth. Her strength and determination brings to light a story of magnanimity and the fears and atrocities such a Gypsy girl might have lived through.

---

Gypsy Spirit completely captivated me as I learned from its historical background. This is Rita Karnopp's best novel yet. This is a well researched, well written story representing how life may have been for a young gypsy girl in this war torn area during World War II. This book compells the reader to not put it down but read to the end.

---

Multi-published author Rita Karnopp knew at a very young age she wanted to be a writer – and penned her first story at age sixteen. She is drawn to the history of the Native American and strives to bring alive the authenticity of a time past. Whether writing suspense, Indian historicals, or contemporary romance, Rita enjoys bringing excitement and the enduring power of love to her stories. Rita currently resides in Montana with her husband and their loveable Cockapoo named Gema.

Jewish Soul

BWL Publishing Inc. | Tango of Death


Mayla Sucuri’s world is falling apart . . . no Gypsy is safe in Hitler’s Germany. Her twin sister, Vanya, has just run off with her love and joined the partisans. Now Mayla is being forced to leave her papa and younger sister, Zilka, with the kumpania. Heading to Switzerland with her mother, to the safety of her Grandmother’s chalet in Switzerland, Mayla fears she’ll never see any of them again. Her grandmother is connected to every high official in the SS. But not everything is as it appears. Because of her drive to be a doctor, Mayla finds herself invited to Dachau and Auschwitz. She quickly finds herself in the company of Doctor Josef Mengele and Doctor Sigmund Rascher, who are only too willing to share the results of their medical experiments on Jews and Gypsies. At great personal risk, Mayla refuses to turn down the opportunity to take notes and bear witness to the atrocities happening at the concentration camps. Mayla is drawn to Auschwitz where the distinctions between good and evil become blurred in a world turned upside down. Will it get her killed or will her unwavering resolve give her the strength and courage to rescue her sisters from the gas chambers?

---

Author Rita Karnopp has penned another gripping story centered around the age-old theme of good vs. evil. Point-of-view character Mayla is faced with the ultimate test in her pursuit to become a doctor: Will she abandon all moral reasoning in the pursuit of medical exploitation? Will she become a traitor to her beloved Gypsy people in order to attain her goals? Indeed, this story is steeped in strong conflict and deep-seated emotion. The characters are so real, they spring to life. I was "inside Mayla's head" each step of the way, and once I started reading, I couldn't put the book down.

Their partisan group is willing to risk their lives blowing up train trestles, attacking SS killing squads, and to infiltrate Nazis intelligence to destroy Nazi Germany. Resistance does exist. If nothing else, to die with dignity is a form of resistance.

---

Rita Karnopp has out-down herself with this Holocaust Tango of Death series. I can't wait for book 3 - Jewish Soul. When she told me she was writing a Holocaust trilogy I thought - egads, what will she write that hasn't been written about? When she told me over half a million Gypsies were murdered during the Holocaust, I was shocked. When I mention this to others - I get the same reaction.

Grand Menteur

BookThug


The secret world of Mauritian street-gangs is not for the faint of heart. Fraught with peril and mischief, its inner workings are a mystery to the daughter of one of its most valued members: Serge, the Grand Menteur. A liar of exceptional caliber whose sole responsibility is to purposefully confuse police with alibis, the Menteur fears for the criminal future he has unwittingly introduced into his daughter's life, when her clear knack for violence attracts the notice of senior gang members.

Mauritian Kreol, English, and French blend together into a heady brew of language in Grand Menteur. Written in a nuanced style reflecting the island-nation's convoluted history of colonialism, this debut novel by Jean Marc Ah-Sen sheds an unflinching light on the poverty and down-and-out hardship of a shadow class of immigrants from the 1940s to the '80s.

Their story, with elements of child/parent relations and the tumultuous emotions tied to leaving home for greener pastures, will resonate with readers familiar with diasporic fiction, adventure and travelogue writing, and 'lock, stock and barrel' British crime fiction.

Praise for Grand Menteur:

"Jean Marc Ah-Sen's Grand Menteur is a dazzling display of diction, filled with Mauritian Kreol, Latin tags and masterful English, with wonderful narrative momentum. From the island of Mauritius to the island of England and later, homeless shelters in Toronto, it is a fascinating story of Mauritian street gangs, emigration, capers that don’t pay, and a father-daughter relationship like no other. Jean Marc Ah-Sen’s Grand Menteur is voice-driven fiction at its lyrical best."

—John Goldbach, author of The Devil and The Detective “What a strange and extraordinary book — it reads like a magic trick no one’s ever done before or a myth of a myth — it’s too mysterious, too original, too funny, too pure, too profound to be the work of a mortal being.” — Lee Henderson
