An old house, a new lover, a fresh life for Dominick—or will the faith-driven doom it all? The past just won’t go away. Dominick likes to idle there in history’s comfortable remove, but when his mother dies and he meets the half sister he never knew he had, the past becomes more personal—and the present more dangerous. In this sequel to New Jerusalem News, Dominick’s perpetual peregrinations are interrupted by a visit to his newfound sibling’s historic Hudson Valley estate, which is also home to a Wiccan coven. In one way or another his departure is continually delayed by circumstance, brushes with the local sheriff, and the history of the place itself—a stop on the Underground Railroad. Once again, Dominick’s quest for noninvolvement and a purely “observer’s” status is thwarted by reality. In Some People Talk With God, follow the new misadventures of this charming wanderer as he encounters an ineffable world of lovers, schemers, and fanatics.

ON a hot August night in 1221 a saint whom the Church has designated as a “holy athlete of Christ” finished his course and gave up his soul to the God whom he had served, consistently and at great speed, for fifty-one years. Around him were grouped his sons, men of half a dozen nations, who ten years before had hardly heard of Dominic Guzman and now were quite willing to die for him. Like any father of any family, he spoke to them of their inheritance; not wealth, for he had not even a room in which to die nor a habit in which to be buried. But he left an immortal legacy, a blazing enthusiasm for God which the Christian world had not seen since the day of Pentecost. His testament was as simple and as potent as the Sermon on the Mount, and dealt with the same basic verities: “Have charity one for another; Guard humility; Make your treasure out of voluntary poverty.” For a little over seven hundred years, the sons and daughters of this man of God have tried to put into words something of the world-shaking force that was Dominic. No one has ever quite succeeded. Getting St. Dominic into print is like printing Fra Angelico in black and white. In view of this, it does not seem sanguine to judge that the time is ripe for a brief Life of St. Dominic in English. May it do its part in attracting to the Order fresh recruit. from the strata of humanity that Dominic most loved— the young and the courageous who will not shrink from the challenge implicit in St. Dominic’s words to Stephen of Spain as he clothed him with the habit of the Friars Preachers: “I give you arms, with which throughout your life you may fight against the devil.”

Bob Woodward, die Ikone des investigativen Journalismus in den USA, hat alle amerikanischen Präsidenten aus nächster Nähe beobachtet. Nun nimmt er sich den derzeitigen Präsidenten vor und enthüllt den erschütternden Zustand des Weißen Hauses unter Donald Trump. Woodward beschreibt, wie dieser Präsident Entscheidungen trifft, er berichtet von eskalierenden Debatten im Oval Office und in der Air Force One, dem volatilen Charakter Trumps und dessen Obsessionen und Komplexen. Woodwards Buch ist ein Dokument der Zeitgeschichte: Hunderte Stunden von Interviews mit direkt Beteiligten, Gesprächsprotokolle, Tagebücher, Notizen – auch von Trump selbst – bieten einen dramatischen Einblick in die Machtzentrale der westlichen Welt, in der vor allem eines herrscht: Furcht. Woodward ist das Porträt eines amtierenden amerikanischen Präsidenten gelungen, das es in dieser Genauigkeit noch nicht gegeben hat.

The misadventures of Dominick, an “irresistible” couch-surfing one-percenter, begin in this “quirky and delightful” novel (Providence Journal). Dominick is always just passing through. Following the sun and the idle rich from resort to resort, he lives the free and easy life of a professional houseguest with nothing and nobody to tie him down. But when he decides to spend the winter on a small island off the New England coast, the off-season proves to be anything but quiet. Suddenly, despite his best efforts to remain detached from the rest of the human race, Dominick finds himself becoming involved with the travails of his geriatric hosts, Atticus and Lydia, and their coterie of oddball friends and local denizens—and going to some highly unusual extremes in the process. But the more he becomes enmeshed in the lives of others, the more he begins to rethink his own meandering life, especially when he somehow becomes a suspected terrorist. Sooner or later, everyone needs a place to call home—even if you really aren’t planning on staying long—and just because you live a carefree existence doesn’t mean you don’t care. From the author of the Jungle Beat mysteries set in American Samoa, New Jerusalem News is a delightful blend of intrigue and wit featuring a truly unforgettable character. “What a great beginning to a new series. You’ll laugh out loud but also enjoy Dominick’s asides on class warfare, crows, the past and cold, wet, provincial New England and New Englanders. The plot leaps and twists and delights…Enright’s off and running with Dominick, and he’s terrific.”—Providence Journal
