Zwei Münder vereinigen sich zu einer schönen Sangstimme. Weil sie alles wissen und weil sie alle Lust versprechen, die möglich ist, soll Odysseus das Schiff anlegen, an der Insel. Das sind die beiden Sirenen,die in der späteren ikonographischen Tradition auf den Vasen immer drei sind und immer schreckliche Mischwesen: oben Jungfrauen mit Busen, unten Krallen und Vögel - bei Homer sind es einfach zwei schöne Nymphen.´´ Friedrich Kittler betreibt experimentelle Philologie, bereist die Sireneninseln und verlebendigt so die Geschichte des Odysseus. Er erzählt von den honigsüß summenden Stimmen der Frauen, der Geburt der Musen, den Ausschweifungen Kirkes, läßt Göttinnen auftreten, Huren und Nymphen - über allem aber schwebt Musik und die Erotik der Mathematik... Es geht um Verzauberung und die Grausamkeit der Verführung, um das ´´Lächeln im unsterblichen Gesicht´´ (Sappho) und das Fortdauern des Namens durch die Zeiten, bis er heute seinen Eintrag im ´´Sprechbuch´´ findet. Kittler beschwört unser griechisches Erbe, den Ursprung aller Wissenschaften. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Friedrich Kittler.

This is the story of Lizzie Vogel, a 15 year old girl who finds herself working in a ramshackle old people´s home in the English suburbs. It is the late 1970s and the place is in chaos - there´s a much swisher old people´s home nearer the supermarket with better parking which is taking all the best patients; Matron seems to be utterly without qualifications, and Lizzie has no idea what she´s doing. But, the longer Lizzie stays the more she discovers about the patients and the staff - she uncovers a love affair and a plot to kidnap one of the patients, as well as discovering how not to wash false teeth or give an old lady a bath. Very funny, tender and wonderfully gripping, Paradise Lodge is a celebration of chaos, love and old people. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Helen Baxendale.

The perfect blend of sweet romance and historical flavor, Wait for Me, from debut author Caroline Leech, brings a fresh new voice to a much-loved genre. It’s 1945, and Lorna Anderson’s life on her father’s farm in Scotland consists of endless chores and rationing, knitting Red Cross scarves, and praying for an Allied victory. So when Paul Vogel, a German prisoner of war, is assigned as the new farmhand, Lorna is appalled. How can she possibly work alongside the enemy when her own brothers are risking their lives for their country? But as Lorna reluctantly spends time with Paul, she feels herself changing. The more she learns about him - from his time fighting a war he doesn’t believe in, to his life back home in Germany - the more she sees the boy behind the soldier. Soon Lorna is battling her own warring heart. Loving Paul could mean losing her family and the life she’s always known. With tensions rising all around them, Lorna must decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice before the end of the war determines their fate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah McRae.

National Book Award Winner Man at the Helm, the debut novel from Nina Stibbe - the much-loved author of Love, Nina - is a wildly comic, brilliantly sharp-eyed novel about the horrors of being an attractive divorcée in an English village in the 1970s, and a family´s fall from grace.... My sister and I and our little brother were born (in that order) into a very good situation and apart from the odd new thing life was humdrum and comfortable until an evening in 1970 when my mother listened in to my father´s phone call and ended up blowing her nose on a tea towel - a thing she´d only have done in an absolute emergency. Not long after her parents´ separation, heralded by an awkward scene involving a wet Daily Telegraph and a pan of cold eggs, nine-year-old Lizzie Vogel, her sister and little brother and their now-divorcée mother are packed off to a small, slightly hostile village in the English countryside. Their mother is all alone, only 31 years of age, with three young children and a Labrador. It is no wonder, when you put it like that, that she becomes a menace and a drunk. And a playwright. Worried about the bad playwriting - though more about becoming wards of court and being sent to the infamous Crescent Home for Children - Lizzie and her sister decide to contact, by letter, suitable men in the area. In order to stave off the local social worker they urgently need to find a new Man at the Helm. Nina Stibbe was born in Leicester. She is the author of the hugely acclaimed, Love, Nina. She now lives in Cornwall with her partner and two children. Man at the Helm is her first novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Imogen Church.

First in a brand-new series featuring best-selling adventure author, Cash Cassidy, who has a knack for finding trouble...and finding real-life treasure. When Cash is asked to complete the research of a renowned historian - a man famous for his search for the Holy Grail - she can´t agree quickly enough. After all, life at her new home in Berkeley, California, has quickly become dull: too dull for a best-selling adventurer who´s equally famous for her hands-on research...and for landing in hot water. Things don´t go exactly as planned from the moment the plane lands in Israel. For Cash, nothing ever does. Worse, her initial encounter with the Israeli professor goes horribly wrong; that is, until she discovers the papers he´d secretly hidden in her bag. These aren´t just any papers. They´re clues to the location of the cup of Christ. Now, with clue after mysterious clue falling into place, Cash soon finds herself on the trail to a legendary treasure... and on the run from those who will stop at nothing to beat her to it. And as civil war breaks out, it´s all Cash Cassidy can do to stay alive. But staying alive is something else she´s famous for. After all, she has a book to research... and the Holy Grail to find. 1.
