Despite a global recession, Englishman Adam Goldstein felt 2008 was the perfect time to invest in his lifelong passion. So he sold his flat and left his job and girlfriend in London for American football. Goldstein’s goal was to achieve what no other fan of American football has accomplished: to attend one live National Football League (NFL) game at every NFL stadium during the regular season, plus those played in London and Canada. He traveled over 65,000 miles to watch forty football games in eighteen weeks and to experience and understand the phenomenal appeal of that classic American pastime, the tailgate party. He drove from stadium to stadium, tailgate to tailgate, sometimes eight hundred miles a day, digesting everything that American football could serve up. He met players and extreme fans alike and was party to surreal pregame rituals while absorbing the rich cultural differences of each part of the country. During his football odyssey—a grueling yet rewarding quest—he compared sports traditions and fandom in the United Kingdom and the United States. In the process of football self-discovery, Goldstein often found himself embraced by NFL fans across the continent, as if he had the key that unlocked the very meaning of life. Tailgate to Heaven is a humorous, moving, and inspiring story about how nothing closes a culture gap like love of a sport—and the camaraderie that comes with it.

It seems that ever since mankind was kicked out of the Garden of Eden for eating the forbidden fruit, we’ve been trying to get back in. Or at least, we’ve been wondering where the Garden might have been. St. Augustine had a theory, and so did medieval monks, John Calvin, and Christopher Columbus. But when Darwin’s theory of evolution permanently altered our understanding of human origins, shouldn’t the search for a literal Eden have faded away? Not so fast. In Paradise Lust, Brook Wilensky-Lanford introduces readers to the enduring modern quest to locate the Garden of Eden on Earth. It is an obsession that has consumed Mesopotamian archaeologists, German Baptist ministers, British irrigation engineers, and the first president of Boston University, among many others. These quixotic Eden seekers all started with the same brief Bible verses, but each ended up at a different spot on the globe: Florida, the North Pole, Ohio, China, and, of course, Iraq. Evocative of Tony Horwitz and Sarah Vowell, Wilensky-Lanford writes of these unusual characters and their search with sympathy and wit. Charming, enlightening, and utterly unique, Paradise Lust is a century-spanning history that will take you to places you never imagined.

Ignaz J. Reilly - ein 'Wirrkopf von Gottes Gnaden, ein fetter Don Quijote, ein perverser Thomas von Aquin' und in der Tat einer der originellsten Helden, den die amerikanische Literatur je hervorgebracht hat. Eines Tages nun wird dieser sich bisher stoisch jeder produktiven Betätigung verweigernde Fleischberg von seiner Mutter gezwungen, sich nach einem Job umsehen. Reillys berufliche Odyssee führt ihn von einer heruntergekommenen Hosenfabrik - in der er das Problem der Ablage mit Hilfe des Papierkorbs löst und eine Revolte unter den schwarzen Arbeitern anzettelt - ins French Quarter von New Orleans, wo ihm ein fahrbare Wurststand anvertraut wird. Aber auch dieser Beruf bietet keine Zukunft, denn als Hot-Dog-Verkäufer ist er sein bester Kunde. Ignaz trägt sich indes bald mit neuen Plänen - Er wird eine Partei gründen, eine Partei der Sodomiten.
