Eigentlich hatte sie andere Pläne. Ein selbstbestimmtes Leben, Reisen, vielleicht eine Karriere als Schriftstellerin. Doch als sich Ingrid in ihren Literaturprofessor Gil Coleman verliebt und von ihm schwanger wird, wirft sie für ihn all dies über Bord. Gil liebt seine junge Frau, und dennoch betrügt er sie, lässt sie viel zu oft mit den Kindern in dem kleinen Ort an der englischen Küste allein. In ihren schlaflosen Nächten beginnt sie, Gil heimlich Briefe zu schreiben. Statt ihm ihre innersten Gedanken anzuvertrauen, steckt sie ihre Briefe in die Bücher seiner Bibliothek und verschwindet schließlich auf rätselhafte Weise. Zwölf Jahre später glaubt Gil, seine Frau wieder gesehen zu haben - und ihre gemeinsame Tochter Flora, hin und her gerissen zwischen Hoffnung und Verzweiflung, beginnt nach Antworten zu suchen, ohne zu ahnen, dass sie nur die Bücher ihres Vaters aufschlagen müsste, um sie zu erhalten

AS HEARD ON BBC RADIO 2 FACT NOT FICTION BOOKCLUB AND READ BY BILL NIGHY ON AUDIO ´I was hoping against hope that the penguin would survive because as of that instant he had a name, and with his name came the beginning of a bond which would last a life-time´ Tom Michell is in his roaring twenties: single, free-spirited and seeking adventure. He has a plane ticket to South America, a teaching position in a prestigious Argentine boarding school, and endless summer holidays. He even has a motorbike, Che Guevara style. What he doesn´t need is a pet. What he really doesn´t need is a pet penguin. Set against Argentina´s turbulent years following the collapse of the corrupt Perónist regime, this is the heart-warming story of Juan Salvador the penguin, rescued by Tom from an oil slick in Uruguay just days before a new term. When the bird refuses to leave Tom´s side, the young teacher has no choice but to smuggle it across the border, through customs, and back to school. Whether it´s as the rugby team´s mascot, the housekeeper´s confidant, the host at Tom´s parties or the most flamboyant swimming coach in world history, Juan Salvador transforms the lives of all he meets - in particular one homesick school boy. And as for Tom, he discovers in Juan Salvador a compadre like no other... The Penguin Lessons is a unique and moving true story which has captured imaginations around the globe - for all those who dreamed as a child they might one day talk to the animals.
