"Wild Boy" ist die Geschichte einer stürmischen Jugend in den 1970er Jahren, mit allem, was dazugehört: die musikalische Erweckung, maßgeblich beeinflusst durch den ansonsten ziemlich unbrauchbaren Vater, das selbstgebaute Schlagzeug und die Beatles; dann die Drogen und Partys, die Rebellion gegen die Schule und alles Institutionalisierte; und natürlich der Sex, die unbändige Lust an den Frauen und aufs Ausprobieren und das Wirrwarr der Gefühle. Dieses Grundrauschen der grenzenlosen Freiheit verschmilzt mit der ganz persönlichen Geschichte des vielschichtigen und sensiblen Mischa, dessen Eltern eine zerrüttete und gewalttätige Ehe führen. Mischa, der schon früh sein zeichnerisches Talent und seine Freude an der Kunst entdeckt und der, wenn ihm alles zu viel wird, Stadt und Menschen hinter sich lässt und sich in den Wald zurückzieht. Alexander Strohmaier erzählt in lustvollen, expressiven Schwarz-Weiß-Bildern vom Lebensgefühl einer Generation, erzählt in diesem umfang- und detailreichen Comic vor autobiografischem Hintergrund die Coming-of-Age-Geschichte von Mischa - Künstler, Musiker, Träumer, leidenschaftlicher Liebhaber und wilder Junge.

In 18th-century France, a child is captured in the forests near Aveyron where he seems to have been living wild for seven years. Now 12 years old, the Wild Boy is put on public display as a freak, and finally handed over to the ambitious, emotionally repressed Doctor Itard, who is charged with educating the boy, whom he names Victor, and trying to discover the secrets of his strange, secret life. But Victor soon becomes a pawn in the raging debate about nature vs nurture, and Itard's attempts to civilise him bear little fruit. Instead, Victor seems drawn to Mme Guerin, his motherly guardian - and to her vivacious daughter, Julie, who is herself falling for Itard as he struggles to understand both Victor and his own confused emotions. Giving a vivid sense of the Revolutionary period, the novel brings to life through the stories of three fascinating characters a mysterious case that resonates in the modern day preoccupation with autism.

A notebook he carried along the way charts the brutality of the island's landscape.

This is my last hurrah - I enjoyed it all so much.' To the Edge and Back is an exhilarating, nail-biting account of the Brando's solo exploration of the Deep South. An adventure tale of grit and determination, practical survival guide and inspirational story about chasing your dreams, it's the perfect read for any armchair adrenalin junky.

The first member of Duran Duran to write his memoirs tells the full story of the excesses, glamour and excitement they lived through in the 1980s. When 19-year-old Andy Taylor returned from his band's tour of military bases in Germany and saw an advert in Melody Maker in April 1980 asking for a 'live wire guitarist' to audition in Birmingham, he saw his chance. Even he could not have predicted what happened next. The group, Duran Duran, released their first single, 'Planet Earth', ten months later and soon became the biggest band since the Beatles. Emerging in the post-punk era, Duran headed the New Romantic movement and with their stunning videos and style consciousness, they set the trend for the consumerist 1980s. Popular with everyone from rockers to Princess Diana, they had a string of massive worldwide hits such as 'Rio', 'The Reflex' and 'A View to a Kill'. They won Grammys and an Ivor Novello award among many other things. By Live Aid, in 1985, they were at their very pinnacle of success - and then the band began to fall apart. At the centre of it all, giving the group its musical pulse, was lead guitarist Andy Taylor. In this revealing and raw memoir, Taylor recalls the highs and lows of an unbelievable period where the squeaky clean facade hid the truth of wild partying as five young men took just about every opportunity that was offered to them. Andy Taylor's story is of an era when MTV was new, the media allowed superstars to get away with lots and rock stars knew how to party like there was no tomorrow. Wild Boy is a book that millions of fans of Duran Duran around the world will want to read to know the full story of what really happened.

What happens when society finds a wild boy alone in the woods and tries to civilize him? A true story from the author of The Fairy Ring. One day in 1798, woodsmen in southern France returned from the forest having captured a naked boy. He had been running wild, digging for food, and was covered with scars. In the village square, people gathered around, gaping and jabbering in words the boy didn’t understand. And so began the curious public life of the boy known as the Savage of Aveyron, whose journey took him all the way to Paris. Though the wild boy’s world was forever changed, some things stayed the same: sometimes, when the mountain winds blew, "he looked up at the sky, made sounds deep in his throat, and gave great bursts of laughter." In a moving work of narrative nonfiction that reads like a novel, Mary Losure invests another compelling story from history with vivid and arresting new life.

Fast going off the rails and hanging out with the wrong crowd, Brando Yelavich, a plucky 20-year-old from Auckland's North Shore, decided he needed to change his life. He needed a mission. He was going to walk around New Zealand. Brando reached Cape Reinga on 23 August 2014 after a gruelling journey of almost 8000 kilometres, traversed completely on foot over more than 600 days - the first time it had been done. It was an outlandish odyssey of physical and mental fortitude. He slept under the stars and lived off the land. He almost drowned on several occasions and experienced near-hypothermia. He gained 20 kilograms. But the transformation ran much deeper. As much for fans of Bear Grylls or Cheryl Strayed's Wild as it is for those of the off-the-grid outdoors Kiwi experience, Wildboy is a ripping adventure story with an inspiring life change at its heart.
