Der Donnerstagsmordclub

Richard Osman Ullstein Buchverlage Fiction

"So schlau und lustig. Leider ziemlich gut." Ian Rankin "Eine warmherzige, weise und witzige Warnung davor, dass man die Älteren nie unterschätzen darf." Val McDermid Man möchte meinen, so eine luxuriöse Seniorenresidenz in der idyllischen Grafschaft Kent sei ein friedlicher Ort. Das dachte auch die fast achtzigjährige Joyce, als sie in Coopers Chase einzog. Bis sie Elizabeth, Ron und Ibrahim kennenlernt oder, anders gesagt, eine ehemalige Geheimagentin, einen ehemaligen Gewerkschaftsführer und einen ehemaligen Psychiater. Sie wird Teil ihres Clubs, der sich immer donnerstags im Puzzlezimmer trifft, um ungelöste Kriminalfälle aufzuklären. Als dann direkt vor ihrer Haustür ein Mord verübt wird, ist der Ermittlungseifer der vier Senioren natürlich geweckt, und selbst der Chefinspektor der lokalen Polizeidienststelle kann nur über ihren Scharfsinn staunen.

The Graphic Canon Vol 2

Russ Kick Seven Stories Press Comics & Graphic Novels

The Graphic Canon, Volume 2 gives us a visual cornucopia based on the wealth of literature from the 1800s. Several artists—including Maxon Crumb and Gris Grimly—present their versions of Edgar Allan Poe’s visions. The great American novel Huckleberry Finn is adapted uncensored for the first time, as Twain wrote it. The bad boys of Romanticism—Shelley, Keats, and Byron—are visualized here, and so are the Brontë sisters. We see both of Coleridge’s most famous poems: “Kubla Khan” and “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” (the latter by British comics legend Hunt Emerson). Philosophy and science are ably represented by ink versions of Nietzsche’sThus Spake Zarathustra and Darwin’s On the Origin of Species. Frankenstein, Moby-Dick, Les Misérables, Great Expectations, Middlemarch, Anna Karenina, Crime and Punishment (a hallucinatory take on the pivotal murder scene), Thoreau’s Walden (in spare line art by John Porcellino of King-Cat Comics fame), “The Drunken Boat” by Rimbaud, Leaves of Grass by Whitman, and two of Emily Dickinson’s greatest poems are all present and accounted for. John Coulthart has created ten magnificent full-page collages that tell the story of The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. And Pride and Prejudice has never looked this splendiferous! This volume is a special treat for Lewis Carroll fans. Dame Darcy puts her unmistakable stamp on—what else?—the Alice books in a new 16-page tour-de-force, while a dozen other artists present their versions of the most famous characters and moments from Wonderland. There’s also a gorgeous silhouetted telling of “Jabberwocky,” and Mahendra’s Singh’s surrealistic take on “The Hunting of the Snark.” Curveballs in this volume include fairy tales illustrated by the untameable S. Clay Wilson, a fiery speech from freed slave Frederick Douglass (rendered in stark black and white by Seth Tobocman), a letter on reincarnation from Flaubert, the Victorian erotic classic Venus in Furs, the drug classic The Hasheesh Eater, and silk-screened illustrations for the ghastly children’s classic Der Struwwelpeter. Among many other canonical works.
