Own it, snowflakes: you've lost everything you claim to hold dear. White is Bret Easton Ellis's first work of nonfiction. Already the bad boy of American literature, from Less Than Zero to American Psycho, Ellis has also earned the wrath of right-thinking people everywhere with his provocations on social media, and here he escalates his admonishment of received truths as expressed by today's version of "the left." Eschewing convention, he embraces views that will make many in literary and media communities cringe, as he takes aim at the relentless anti-Trump fixation, coastal elites, corporate censorship, Hollywood, identity politics, Generation Wuss, "woke" cultural watchdogs, the obfuscation of ideals once both cherished and clear, and the fugue state of American democracy. In a young century marked by hysterical correctness and obsessive fervency on both sides of an aisle that's taken on the scale of the Grand Canyon, White is a clarion call for freedom of speech and artistic freedom. "The central tension in Ellis's art-or his life, for that matter-is that while [his] aesthetic is the cool reserve of his native California, detachment over ideology, he can't stop generating heat.... He's hard-wired to break furniture."-Karen Heller, The Washington Post "Sweating with rage . . . humming with paranoia."-Anna Leszkiewicz, The Guardian "Snowflakes on both coasts in withdrawal from Rachel Maddow's nightly Kremlinology lesson can purchase a whole book to inspire paroxysms of rage . . . a veritable thirst trap for the easily microaggressed. It's all here. Rants about Trump derangement syndrome; MSNBC; #MeToo; safe spaces."-Bari Weiss, The New York Times

Five years ago Tom Worthington busted his ass to overcome the fear and paranoia that led him to withdraw from the world and nearly lose his boyfriend. He never thought he'd find himself right back there, shutting Reese out, keeping secrets again. Reese Anders is ready to try anything to get Tom to talk: If he can't seduce his boyfriend with food, he'll get Tom to open up in bed. But even Tom's confession that his dad is getting out of prison soon doesn't clear the air between them. And as the holidays approach, intensive mentoring from a new British boss creates more distractions, until Reese is keeping secrets of his own. At a company Christmas party, it takes Tom only one look at Reese's new boss to figure out how much danger their relationship is in. But he's not about to let the connection that started all those years ago at Carlisle come to an end. It's time to deal with their problems like adults. Face to face. Or back to front. Starting in the bedroom. Warning: This book contains two adorable guys with way too many secrets, conciliatory rigatoni, a bedroom lesson on the power of multitasking, and indisputable evidence of what makes the perfect holiday HEA. 1.

Here are four psychological thrillers where love and shame collide, creating a warped kind of sexual chemistry. Abduction, paranoia, addiction, and obsession thicken the mix.

But her life takes a nasty turn when she's taken hostage and incarcerated in an upstairs room by three thugs demanding a huge ransom from her rich father. In a bid to escape, she cuts a hole in the bedroom floor with a cutlery knife. From there, Jess observes the three of them going about their everyday business. That's when she starts playing games with them. That's when her spying pulls her into a treacherous psychological game with her abductors. Falling Awake Gemma's husband vanishes under mysterious circumstances, leaving only a black contorted doodle and mysterious debts. But saving her home proves the least of her worries after Gemma earns urgent cash by performing routines for a mysterious chronic insomniac. Nora Nancy is hurled into the world of celebrity when she finds herself performing a shoot for handsome but odious millionaire, Vince, as they walk from one of his nightclubs. But the seduction of this other world sours after Nancy learns the truth behind her 15 minutes of fame. A Hard Lesson Sarah thought she was teaching a schoolchild a little English. How wrong she was. Not only is her subject a full-grown thug, he's dyslexic and part of a gang headed by a psychopath. And this psychopath doesn't like people interfering with his business.

Defining Moments in Black History: Reading Betw...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

With his trademark acerbic wit, incisive humor, and infectious paranoia, one of our foremost comedians and most politically engaged civil rights activists looks back at 100 key events from the complicated history of black America. A friend of luminaries including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Medgar Evers, and the forebear of today's popular black comics, including Larry Wilmore, W. Kamau Bell, Damon Young, and Trevor Noah, Dick Gregory was a provocative and incisive cultural force for more than 50 years. As an entertainer, he always kept it indisputably real about race issues in America, fearlessly lacing laughter with hard truths. As a leading activist against injustice, he marched at Selma during the Civil Rights movement, organized student rallies to protest the Vietnam War; sat in at rallies for Native American and feminist rights; fought apartheid in South Africa; and participated in hunger strikes in support of Black Lives Matter. In this collection of thoughtful, provocative essays, Gregory charts the complex and often obscured history of the African American experience. In his unapologetically candid voice, he moves from African ancestry and surviving the Middle Passage to the creation of the Jheri Curl, the enjoyment of bacon and everything pig, the headline-making shootings of black men, and the Black Lives Matter movement. A captivating journey through time, Defining Moments in Black History explores historical movements such as The Great Migration and the Harlem Renaissance, as well as cultural touchstones such as Sidney Poitier winning the Best Actor Oscar for Lilies in the Field and Billie Holiday releasing "Strange Fruit". An engaging look at black life that offers insightful commentary on the intricate history of the African American people, Defining Moments in Black History is an essential, no-holds-bar history lesson that will provoke, enlighten, and entertain. 1.

Blood Moon

The Piper's calling and he doesn't grant extensions. President Noah Carrington is living on borrowed time. The fourth Blood Moon of the Tetrad has set and so has his future. He needs to stop the clock. Unfortunately, his only leverage; The Codex Vaticanus, has been intercepted and is now in the hands of The Coalition and they're driving toward the end zone. With the game clock winding down, Noah drafts a team from the deepest bowels of Hell: The Humanals, a fearsome hybrid of animalistic Super Soldiers; Azazael, The leader of The Watchers, the Original Fallen angels; and Frank, the most powerful man in all of Rome. Together, they take the world field in the Super bowl of humanity, hoping to pull off a last second, satanic Hail Mary. Bear no responsibility for the past; but doing nothing makes you complicit in the present created by it. In 2021, following The Cleansing, Gwen Freeman fled the Old United States and crossed the Israeli border with Faith; the newborn daughter of her best friends, Caleb and Cristiana, tortured and killed at the hands of Noah Carrington. She vowed to never look back. Twenty-one years later, Faith, rebelling against a life of aunt-imposed isolation, unwittingly revives a past clearly marked 'DNR'. With everything her aunt has taught her, she's about to learn the most frightening lesson of all, 'It's not paranoia if they're really out to kill you.' Noah's back…and there's a whole new breed of C-1.
