Der erste Roman der Pulitzer-Preisträgerin Jennifer Egan ist ein beklemmendes Buch über Trauer, Tod und Schuld. Nur ein paar Postkarten sind Phoebe von ihrer großen Schwester Faith geblieben, die 1970 in Italien ums Leben kam. Unfall? Mord? Selbstmord? Phoebe will die Wahrheit herausfinden und begibt sich von San Francisco aus auf eine Reise nach Europa: von Amsterdam über Paris und München bis ins italienische Corniglia in eine Zeit hinein, in der eine Generation, berauscht von Drogen und dem Ideal der freien Liebe, an eine bessere Zukunft glaubte und die Welt aus den Angeln heben wollte. »Wenn es Gerechtigkeit auf dieser Welt gäbe, so dürfte es niemandem erlaubt sein, ein Debüt von derartiger Schönheit und Vollendung zu schaffen.« The New York Times Book Review »›Die Farbe der Erinnerung‹ gleicht dem zart leuchtenden Grün eines Frühlingserwachens, hinter dem der Winter einer turbulenten, unbegriffenen Zeit liegt.« Ulrich Greiner, Die Zeit

In the ancient moors of Scotland, the king of Calidon lies on his deathbed, cursed by a ring that cannot be removed from his finger. When a mysterious fey stranger appears to save the king, he also carries a secret that could tear the royal family apart. The kingdom’s only hope will lie with two young men raised worlds apart. Aric is the beloved heir to the throne of Calidon; Albaric is clearly of noble origin yet strangely out of place. The Oddling Prince is a tale of brothers whose love and loyalty to each other is such that it defies impending warfare, sundering seas, fated hatred, and the very course of time itself. In her long-awaited new fantasy novel, Nancy Springer (the Books of Isle series) explores the darkness of the human heart as well as its unceasing capacity for love.

Ivy and her sisters have a secret: their reclusive Great-Aunt is actually Adela Madden, inspired author of the fantasy classic, Ivory Apples. Generations of obsessive fans have searched for Adela, poring over her letters, sharing their theories online, and gathering at book conventions.

Kate has charmed the entire family, but she is suspiciously curious about Ivory Apples. And Ivy must protect what she and her Great-Aunt share: magic that is real, untamable, and—despite anyone’s desire—always prefers choosing its own vessel.
