Die burmesisch-amerikanische Autorin Wendy Law-Yone beschreibt in diesem Buch, wie wichtig für sie und ihr Schaffen die Begegnung mit der deutschen Sprache und dem Werk Friedrich Dürrenmatts gewesen ist. Über die deutsche Sprache kam sie zum Schreiben. Beeindruckt von Dürrenmatts Tragikomödie "Der Besuch der alten Dame" beschäftigte sie, die von der Militärdiktatur aus ihrem Land vertrieben wurde, sich insbesondere mit dem Thema der Rache. Ihr Bericht ist sehr persönlich, offen und heiter. Dieser Band präsentiert einem deutschsprachigen Publikum erstmals das Werk einer postkolonialen Autorin, die im englischsprachigen Raum bereits eine anerkannte Größe ist. Erscheint in deutscher und englischer Sprache. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt von Johanna von Koppenfels, mit einem Nachwort von Marijke Denger Texte zur Friedrich Dürrenmatt Gastprofessur für Weltliteratur, herausgegeben von Oliver Lubrich

Schunkeln is awesome! Adam Fletcher hat sich ausgiebig mit den Marotten und Skurrilitäten der Deutschen beschäftigt. Doch jetzt ist es an der Zeit, endlich den letzten Schritt zu gehen und ein richtiger Deutscher zu werden. Also zieht der Brite die Hausschuhe aus und erkundet Good Old Germany via Mitfahrgelegenheit und Deutscher Bahn – und besteht unterwegs ein paar Prüfungen: Fletcher nimmt an Schützenfesten teil, reist ins 17. Bundesland Mallorca und stürzt sich in die Abgründe des deutschen Schlagers. Liebevoll und mit viel britischem Humor erzählt er von seinen teutonischen Abenteuern, und warum er dieses Land und seine Bewohner so in sein Herz geschlossen hat. Schunkeln is awesome! After two best-selling books exploring the quirks of German culture, British author Adam Fletcher finds he's become a pundit for German life. Unsure about his position, and with severe doubts about his own expertise, he decides to take on a series of hilarious integration challenges. Follow him as he traverses the country by Mitfahrgelegenheit and Deutsche Bahn, creates a Schlager song, marches in a Schützenfest, completes a Goverment Integrationskurs, takes a package holiday to the 17th Federal State of Mallorca and much more. Lovingly written, with a lot of British humor and avoiding the usual national clichés, he recounts his adventures of trying to become German. On the way, he reaffirms why this country and its inhabitants have such a special place in his heart.

Ghulam Mohammad, successful hotelier and shop owner, wants to sell up and buy a church – a derelict church in a run-down corner of Birmingham – and convert it into a mosque. But his son has other plans. With an eye on his temporal rather than spiritual riches, he will stop at nothing to protect his inheritance . . . This collection of seventeen short stories by Pakistani women covers a wide range of subjects, from the stream-of-consciousness that is ‘Millipede’ – recounting a man’s descent into madness as his obsession that he has become infected by insects grows – to the violence shown by a father to his son when he beats him to within an inch of his life in ‘The Coach’. The stories have a diversity that reflects Pakistani women themselves. First published by the Pakistani Academy of Letters, the narratives from the post-independence generation are translated from Urdu, Punjabi, Seraiki, Pushto and Sindhi. They reveal the increasing power and influence that Pakistani women writers have achieved in the last half-century and explore the contrasts and conflicts between the modern and the traditional worlds. This anthology has been produced in collaboration with UNESCO.

Do you feel like you need a change in your life? If you feel like your prayers, praise and worship are lacking life, that your time in the Word is dry and forceful, that you serve God without seeing any tangible results...this book is for you. In a candid style, David Greco will bring revelation to your life and show you it is in the desert that many times the Holy Spirit manifests His presence with power. In Renew Me, the author describes the work of the Holy Spirit in five disciplines: prayer, praise, worship, bible study and service. He details his journey to this discovery and teaches us how to: Radically change your attitude Not to depend on spiritual experiences Be conformed to the heart of God Receive a renewed and fresh touch from the Holy Spirit Walk in the Spirit Allow this book to be your awakening to a victorious life. If you are willing to wait on the Lord, He will show you the way to a life of renewal.
