Instant New York Times Bestseller A New York Times Notable Book of 2016 A Time Magazine Top 10 Novel of 2016 A Times Literary Supplement Best Book of 2016 “Dazzling . . . A profound novel about the claims of identity, history, family, and the burdens of a broken world.” —Maureen Corrigan, NPR’s “Fresh Air” In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, “Abraham!” before ordering him to sacrifice his son, Isaac, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” Later, when Isaac calls out, “My father!” before asking him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, “Here I am.” How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others’? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer’s first novel in eleven years—a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia Bloch and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the meaning of home—and the fundamental question of how much aliveness one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer’s most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer’s stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a novelist who has fully come into his own as one of our most important writers.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Kinder und Jugend, Note: 1,5, Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg (Institut fur Soziologie), Veranstaltung: Soziologie der Jugendphase, 27 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Wenn mich jemand nach meiner Nationalitat fragt, kann ich diese Frage nicht beantworten. Ich bin in Kasachstan geboren und habe dort gelebt. Ich habe dort viel gelernt. Meine Oma ist Deutsche, deswegen habe ich auch vieles von ihr gelernt. Jetzt lebe ich hier in Deutschland. Die Nationalitat erhalt man nicht, weil man es geerbt hat oder man in einem Land geboren ist. Ich denke, die Nationalitat ist etwas, was man durch das Leben in einem Land erhalt." Der Entwicklungsprozess im Jugendalter ist eine wichtige Voraussetzung fur das Erwachsenenalter. In dieser Phase sind viele Jugendliche auf der Suche nach ihrer eigenen Identitat. In dieser Arbeit wird der Frage nachgegangen, mit welchen Problemen sich jugendliche Spataussiedler auseinandersetzen mussen und welche funktionale Rolle die Gruppe der Gleichaltrigen einnimmt. Um diese Frage zu beantworten, wird im 1. Kapitel zunachst der Identitatsbegriff definiert. Es wird zwischen einer personalen und sozialen Identitat unterschieden. Anschliessend wird die Entwicklung der Identitat nach der Identitatstheorie des Psychoanalytikers Erik H. Erikson dargelegt und hierbei spezifischer auf die 5.Phase eingegangen, die Erikson der Jugendphase zuschreibt. Im weiteren Verlauf ist die Theorie der Identitat von George Herbert Mead, die in seinem Werk Geist, Identitat und Gesellschaft" entwickelt wurde, fur diese Arbeit relevant. Mead hat auf viele bedeutende Punkte hingewiesen und einen grossen Beitrag zur Diskussion um das Identitatskonzept geleistet. Kapitel 2 beginnt mit einer Definition der Peergroup und beschreibt die Funktion der Peergroup fur die Jugendlichen. Hierbei werden sowohl positive, als auch negative Auswirkungen der Peergroup auf die Gesellschaft darge"

Er weiß nicht, wie er wirklich heißt. Er hatte schon viele Namen. Doch keiner davon war sein eigener. Aufgewachsen ohne Identität hat er ein Talent: Er kann in jede Rolle schlüpfen. Seit Neustem gibt er sich für den vermissten Danny Dellomondo aus. Eine Identität wie für ihn gemacht. Als er die Familie des Jungen kennenlernt, scheint zunächst alles perfekt. Fast zu perfekt. Ist sein Spiel wirklich so echt? Oder hat auch die Familie etwas zu verbergen? Und wo steckt eigentlich der wahre Danny? Als klar wird, wer hier wen täuscht, ist es fast schon zu spät. Aus "Who I am not": "Es ist einfacher, wenn ich euch erzähle, wer ich nicht bin. Ich bin weder Kerry Ludwig noch Sean Callahan. Ich bin weder David Alvierez noch Peter McLeod oder Frank Rolfe. All diese Jungen bin ich einmal gewesen, aber keiner von ihnen war ich. Und Danny Dellomondo bin ich auch nicht, egal, was ich gesagt habe. Wäre ich Danny, würde ich das jetzt nicht erzählen, oder? Ich meine, dann könnte ich es nicht erzählen." who-i-am-not.de

Drunk and high, holed up in a hotel room with a beautiful blonde she barely knew, Jennie Ketcham was thirty-six hours away from entering rehab. Her on-camera alter ego, Penny Flame, was a rising star. Her personal life, however, had been getting worse for years and finally hit an all-time low. Guys are gonna want one thing from you. To Jennie’s young ears, her father’s advice meant one thing: You can use your sexuality to control men. Life was imploding around her: her parents’ divorce, their spiraling addictions, her deteriorating relationships with them. She lost her virginity at thirteen and began a game of initiating boys her age into manhood. For the fleeting moments she spent in bed with them, she got to be the center of attention. Eventually, Jennie found porn—that enticing world of immediate gratification, endless drugs, and seemingly endless money—and became Penny Flame. Divorced from her feelings, tempted into a lifestyle she couldn’t afford, financially or emotionally, she entered Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew to boost her career. But when Dr. Drew and his staff insisted she go by her real name, the once indestructible walls she had built around herself began to burn down. Two stories make up this direct and disarming memoir: that of a troubled girl desperately fleeing intimacy and herself, and that of a woman courageously breaking down emotional barriers to build a new life. Many will recognize Jennie’s struggles: confusing sex with self-worth, addiction with love, detachment with strength. Ultimately, I Am Jennie is a tale of a woman who considers herself a work in progress but who finally understands that the only person she can truly afford to be is herself. *** I had never allowed myself to wonder why i ran from people, from connection, from what Dr. Drew was labeling as intimacy. I had never questioned why I habitually hurt the men I dated, or the people in my family. I had never thought: Jennie, why are you doing this? In the past, I had simply acted, and then moved forward. If I felt like crying, I shut the emotions down. This quality made me a good porn star. But it suddenly didn’t seem like a great way to live. “It’s a wall,” I whispered. “What do you think is behind that wall?” Dr. Drew said. He looked directly in my eyes. The thought of something existing behind this impenetrable wall was horrifying, exhausting. I grabbed a Kleenex, thinking if I could make the perfect triangle, I could dab my inner eyes without disrupting the glue that held my fake eyelashes in place. “Hopefully, a caring, sensitive person who can have meaningful relationships,” I said.

"I AM is a fascinating, in-depth and eye-opening look at the very essence of how each of our lives are created in every moment." - Hale Dwoskin, author of the New York Times bestseller, The Sedona Method and featured teacher in The Secret For centuries humankind has been asking fervent questions about the meaning of life. As Howard Falco learned, the answers to these questions can ultimately be found in the answer to just one: "Who am I?" In late 2002, in the middle of an ordinary life, Falco-a thirty- five-year-old investment manager with a wife and two children-sought the answer to this powerful question and remarkably this quest resulted in a sudden and all-encompassing shift in his awareness that revealed more about life and how we each create it than he ever imagined knowing. Startled by this new understanding and its implications for his own life and the lives of all others, Falco set out to share his discoveries. The stunning result is this book. I AM takes readers on a life-changing journey in which they will discover the incredible power they have over their experience of life, finding that the doorway to eternal peace, happiness, and fulfillment lies in one of the shortest sentences in the written word but the most powerful in the universe: I AM.

John Wayne Cleaver is dangerous, and he knows it. He's spent his life doing his best not to live up to his potential. He's obsessed with serial killers, but really doesn't want to become one. So for his own sake, and the safety of those around him, he lives by rigid rules he's written for himself, practicing normal life as if it were a private religion that could save him from damnation. Dead bodies are normal to John. He likes them, actually. They don't demand or expect the empathy he's unable to offer. Perhaps that's what gives him the objectivity to recognize that there's something different about the body the police have just found behind the Wash-n-Dry Laundromat---and to appreciate what that difference means. Now, for the first time, John has to confront a danger outside himself, a threat he can't control, a menace to everything and everyone he would love, if only he could. Dan Wells's debut novel, I Am Not a Serial Killer, is the first volume of a trilogy that will keep you awake and then haunt your dreams. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
