Beloved German cyclist Jens Voigt isn't a superstar in the traditional sense of the word. Although he won three stages of the Tour De France--and wore the yellow jersey twice--Voigt never claimed an overall victory. He became a star because he embodies qualities that go beyond winning and losing: sacrifice, selflessness, reliability, and devotion. European and American crowds were drawn to his aggressive riding style, outgoing nature, and refreshing realness. Voigt adopted a tireless work ethic that he carried throughout his career. In Shut Up, Legs! (a legendary Jensism), Voigt reflects upon his childhood in East Germany, juggling life as a professional cyclist and a father of six, and how he remained competitive without doping. Shut Up, Legs! offers a rare glimpse inside his heart and mind.

Κάποια άτομα της υψηλής γαλλικής κοινωνίας συναντιούνται σ' έναν συγκεκριμένο χώρο, με σκοπό ν' ανταλλάξουν απόψεις αλλά και για να χαρούν, από κοινού, τις χαρές του έρωτα. Καταφτάνει, επίσης, εκεί και μια νέα κοπέλα, η Ευγενία, την οποία οι αριστοκράτες θα θελήσουν να διδάξουν και να νουθετήσουν, αλλά και να μυήσουν στα μυστήρια της ερωτικής απόλαυσης - πράγμα που γίνεται. Το μεγαλύτερο μέρος του βιβλίου κυλά με σεξουαλικά όργια αλλά και φιλοσοφικές συζητήσεις.

Ρόουλινγκ, τον Τζον Τίφανι και τον Τζακ Θορν, Ο Χάρι Πότερ και το καταραμένο παιδί είναι η πρώτη επίσημη ιστορία με πρωταγωνιστή τον Χάρι Πότερ που ανεβαίνει στη σκηνή. Η παγκόσμια πρεμιέρα της θεατρικής παράστασης έλαβε χώρα στο Ουέστ Εντ του Λονδίνου, στις 30 Ιουλίου 2016. Ανέκαθεν ήταν δύσκολο να είσαι ο Χάρι Πότερ και δεν έχει γίνει καθόλου ευκολότερο τώρα που ο Χάρι εργάζεται σκληρά στο Υπουργείο Μαγείας, είναι σύζυγος και πατέρας τριών παιδιών που πηγαίνουν σχολείο. Ενώ ο Χάρι παλεύει με το παρελθόν του, ο νεότερος γιος του, Άλμπους, έρχεται αντιμέτωπος με το βάρος της οικογενειακής κληρονομιάς που ποτέ του δε θέλησε. Καθώς το παρελθόν μπερδεύεται με το παρόν, πατέρας και γιος μαθαίνουν την ενοχλητική αλήθεια: κάποιες φορές το σκοτάδι προβάλλει από μέρη που δεν το περιμένεις.

It's politics as usual in New York City when Larry MacIver, world renowned criminologist, is tapped by NYC Mayor Ruth Newberg to save NYC from a second 9/11 attack. Will it be nuclear? Will it be bio? MacIver and his geeky assistant Manish Das must overcome FBI ineptitude, CIA intrigue and, most of all, the evil and ruthless Iranian terrorist Shalah Muhammud, to save the city. In the underground of this story, so gripping, so frustratingly funny at times, are the crucial questions of counter terrorism that worry anyone within a couple of hours drive from New York City: Will it be a drone next time? Will New York politics doom the city’s defenses? Written before drones were widely in use, the novel seems prescient of much that has happened (should and should not have happened) in the world of counter terrorism.

When a wild mustang is shot in Montana, renowned horse whisperer and telepath, Emma Horserider, is called in to calm the herd and find out what happened. Once on scene she is almost killed by a bullet-spewing drone, and calls her black ops brother for back-up. Emma's help roars into her life covered in tattoos and riding a Harley. Remote viewer Bronco Winchester takes the assignment because he is ordered to, but he wonders what type of assistance, his boss's sister needs. That is until he sees Emma, a valiant Warrior Woman proud of her Crow heritage. Posing as a married couple, Emma and Bronco go undercover to infiltrate and stop a hate group. Both are anxious enough without the now growing attachment they feel for one another. When the lives of many are on the line, they are not sure if they will live or die—let alone have a chance at love.

Selected to be read on Radio Four's Book of the Week. 'One of the best books I've read in the last five or ten years... Wild is angry, brave, sad, self-knowing, redemptive, raw, compelling, and brilliantly written, and I think it's destined to be loved by a lot of people, men and women, for a very long time.' --Nick Hornby At twenty-six, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's rapid death from cancer, her family disbanded and her marriage crumbled. With nothing to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to walk eleven-hundred miles of the west coast of America - from the Mojave Desert, through California and Oregon, and into Washington state - and to do it alone. She had no experience of long-distance hiking and the journey was nothing more than a line on a map. But it held a promise - a promise of piecing together a life that lay in ruins at her feet. Strayed's account captures the agonies - both mental and physical - of her incredible journey; how it maddened and terrified her, and how, ultimately, it healed her. Wild is a brutal memoir of survival, grief and redemption: a searing portrayal of life at its lowest ebb and at its highest tide.
