Lore Movie Tie In Edition from the Author: Rachel Seiffert. Now a Major Motion Picture: in Lore, Rachel Seiffert powerfully examines the legacy of World War II on ordinary Germans--both survivors of the war and the generations that succeeded them. It is spring of 1945, just weeks after the defeat of Germany. A teenage German girl named Lore has been left to fend for herself. Her parents have been arrested by the Allies, and she has four younger siblings to care for. Together, they set off on a harrowing journey to find their grandmother. As we follow Lore on a 500-mile trek through the four zones of occupation, Seiffert evokes the experiences of the individual with astonishing emotional depth and psychological acuity.

Oscar And Lucinda from the Author: Peter Carey. The Booker Prize-winning novel--now a major motion picture from Fox Searchlight Pictures. This sweeping, irrepressibly inventive novel, is a romance, but a romance of the sort that could only take place in nineteenth-century Australia. For only on that sprawling continent--a haven for misfits of both the animal and human kingdoms--could a nervous Anglican minister who gambles on the instructions of the Divine become allied with a teenaged heiress who buys a glassworks to help liberate her sex. And only the prodigious imagination of Peter Carey could implicate Oscar and Lucinda in a narrative of love and commerce, religion and colonialism, that culminates in a half-mad expedition to transport a glass church across the Outback.

Julieta Movie Tie In Edition from the Author: Alice Munro. The Three Stories that Inspired the Movie With a foreword by Pedro Almodóvar Alice Munro is cherished for her exquisite, affecting meditations on the human heart. In these three linked stories, “Chance,” “Soon,” and “Silence”—which, together, inspired Pedro Almodóvar’s film Julieta—her virtuosic talents are once again on display. The stories follow a schoolteacher named Juliet as she is swept up by fate: meeting an older man on a train and starting an affair; later, visiting her parents as a young mother; and later still, searching for contact with her estranged daughter. As with all of Munro’s characters, Juliet radiates warmth, dignity, and hope, even as she is unflinching in the face of betrayal and loss. In Munro’s hands, her journey is as surprising, extraordinary, and precious as life itself. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Counselor Movie Tie In Edition from the Author: Cormac McCarthy. On the eve of becoming a married man, the Counselor makes a risky entrée into the drug trade—and gambles that the consequences won’t catch up to him. Along the gritty terrain of the Texas–Mexico border, a respected and recently engaged lawyer throws his stakes into a cocaine trade worth millions. His hope is that it will be a one-time deal and that, afterward, he can settle into life with his beloved fiancée. But instead, the Counselor finds himself mired in a brutal and dangerous game—one that threatens to destroy everything and everyone he loves. Deft, shocking, and unforgettable, McCarthy is at his finest in this gripping tale about risk, consequence, and the treacherous balance between the two.

Die Liebe In Zeiten Der Cholera from the Author: Gabriel García Márquez. Nichts auf der Welt ist schwieriger als die Liebe. Das erleben Fermina Daza und Doktor Juvenal Urbino tagtäglich in ihrer mehr als fünfzigjährigen Ehe. Und niemand erfährt das schmerzlicher als Fermina Dazas ewiger Verehrer Florentino Ariza, der 51 Jahre, 9 Monate und 4 Tage auf sie gewartet hat. Schwärmerisch hat er in poetischen Briefen um sie geworben, sie in aller Keuschheit gewonnen und wieder verloren, aber nie aufgehört, sie zu lieben. Während Fermina Daza an der Seite ihres Mannes, eines hoch geachteten Arztes, ein großbürgerliches Leben führt, bringt es Florentino Ariza durch beruflichen Erfolg zu großem Wohlstand. Er ist ein nimmermüder Schürzenjäger, im Herzen aber Fermina Daza immer treu geblieben, und noch am Abend der Beerdigung ihres Mannes erklärt er ihr erneut seine Liebe.Ein großer Liebesroman, eine Geschichte voller Lebenskraft und Poesie. „Ohne die reichen Bücher von García Márquez wäre unsere Welt entschieden ärmer.“ Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Barney S Version from the Author: Mordecai Richler. Charged with comic energy and a steely disregard for any pieties whatsoever, Barney's Version is a major Richler novel, the most personal and feeling book of a long and distinguished career. Told in the first person, it gives us the life (and what a life!) of Barney Panofsky--whose trashy TV company, Totally Useless Productions, has made him a small fortune; whose three wives include a martyred feminist icon, a quintessential JCP (Jewish-Canadian Princess), and the incomparable Miriam, the perfect wife, lover, and mother--alas, now married to another man; who recalls with nostalgia and pain his young manhood in the Paris of the early fifties, and his lifelong passion for wine, women, and the Montreal Canadiens; who either did or didn't murder his best friend, Boogie, after discovering him in bed with The Second Mrs. Panofsky; whose satirical eye for the idiocies of today's Quebec separatists (as well as for every other kind of political correctness) manages to offend his entire acquaintanceship (and will soon be offending readers everywhere); and whose memory--though not his bile--is, in his sixty-seventh year, definitely slipping . . . From the Hardcover edition.
