She was just an instrument. A weapon. He wanted it to be in that house, inside the house where the cop believed his little girl would always be safe. A phone call from up high interrupts Eve's plans to have a lazy day with her roguish husband Roarke: The teenage daughter of Captain Jonah McMasters, head of the NYPD drug squad, has been found raped and strangled. A terrifying video of Deena, bloody and beaten beyond recognition, suggests a link to a criminal in her father's past, but Eve is getting nowhere - until another murder, and another video, reveals the killer's deadly intent: merciless retribution in the cruellest way possible. Eve and her team must race against the clock to identify the next victim of a killer who will stop at nothing . . .

Στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ’50, σε μια μικρή πόλη της Ιρλανδίας, η Έιλις, ένα κορίτσι από φτωχή οικογένεια, όπως και οι περισσότεροι νέοι δυσκολεύεται να βρει δουλειά. Μόλις της προταθεί μια θέση στις ΗΠΑ καταλαβαίνει ότι δεν μπορεί να αρνηθεί, και αποφασίζει για πρώτη φορά να αφήσει πίσω την εύθραυστη μητέρα της και την αδερφή της.Η απόφασή της θα την οδηγήσει στο Μπρούκλιν όπου υπομονετικά θα χτίσει μια καινούργια ζωή γεμάτη όνειρα για το μέλλον της. Κι ενώ προσπαθεί να διαχειριστεί τη νοσταλγία που νιώθει για ό,τι άφησε πίσω της, θα γνωρίσει τον πρώτο της έρωτα και μαζί την υπόσχεση για μια καλύτερη ζωή. Το παρελθόν της όμως σύντομα θα την καλέσει ξανά, αναγκάζοντάς την να διαλέξει ανάμεσα στην πατρίδα, στην οικογένεια και στον έρωτα. Με εγκράτεια, δεξιοτεχνία και εξαιρετική συναισθηματική αντίληψη ο Colm Tóibín, ένας από τους καλύτερους Ιρλανδούς συγγραφείς της εποχής μας, συνέθεσε μια συγκλονιστική ιστορία για το πεπρωμένο. Το Μπρούκλιν τιμήθηκε με το Βραβείο Costa 2009, και ήταν υποψήφιο για το Διεθνές Λογοτεχνικό Βραβείο IMPAC Dublin 2011 και το βραβείο κοινού Goodreads 2009.

In June 1934, W. B. Yeats gratefully received the award of a Goethe-Plakette from Oberburgermeister Krebs, four months after his early play The Countess Cathleen had been produced in Frankfurt by SS Untersturmfuhrer Bethge. Four years later, the poet publicly commended Nazi legislation before leaving Dublin to die in southern France. These hitherto neglected, isolated and scandalous details stand at the heart of this reflective study of Yeats's life, his attitudes towards death, and his politics. Blood Kindred identifies an obsession with family as the link connecting Yeats's late engagement with fascism to his Irish Victorian origins in suburban Dublin and industrializing Ulster. It carefully documents and analyses his involvement with both Maud Gonne and her daughter Iseult, his secretive consultations with Irish army officers during his Senate years, his incidental anti-Semitism, and his approval of the right-wing royalist group L'Action Française in the 1920s. The familiar peaks and troughs of Irish history, such as the 1916 Rising and the death of Parnell, are re-oriented within a radical new interpretation of Yeats's life and thought, his poetry and plays. As far as possible Bill McCormack lets Yeats speak for himself through generous quotation from his newly accessible correspondence. The result is a combative, entertaining biography which allows Ireland's greatest literary figure to be seen in the round for the first time.

How do we explain the persistent preoccupation with American Indians in Germany and the staggering numbers of Germans one encounters as visitors to Indian country? As H. Glenn Penny demonstrates, that preoccupation is rooted in an affinity for American Indians that has permeated German cultures for two centuries. This affinity stems directly from German polycentrism, notions of tribalism, a devotion to resistance, a longing for freedom, and a melancholy sense of shared fate. Locating the origins of the fascination for Indian life in the transatlantic world of German cultures in the nineteenth century, Penny explores German settler colonialism in the American Midwest, the rise and fall of German America, and the transnational worlds of American Indian performers. As he traces this phenomenon through the twentieth century, Penny engages debates about race, masculinity, comparative genocides, and American Indians' reactions to Germans' interests in them. He also assesses what persists of the affinity across the political ruptures of modern German history and challenges readers to rethink how cultural history is made.
