Manhattan has become the Island of Death. The former President of the United States stands barefoot in a purple toga around a cooking fire in the lobby of the Empire State Building. He is Dr Wilbur Daffodil-II Swain and Slapstick or Lonesome No More! is his story - one of monstrous twins, orgies, revenge, golf, utopian schemes, and very little tooth brushing. In this post-apocalyptic black comedy - dedicated to Laurel and Hardy - Vonnegut is at his most hilarious, grotesque, and personal.

Those who know Kurt Vonnegut as one of America's most beloved and influential writers will be surprised and delighted to discover that he was also a gifted graphic artist. This book brings together the finest examples of his funny, strange, and moving drawings in an inexpensive, beautifully produced gift volume for every Vonnegut fan. Kurt Vonnegut's daughter Nanette introduces this volume of his never before published drawings with an intimate remembrance of her father. Vonnegut always drew, and many of his novels contain sketches. Breakfast of Champions (1973) included many felt-tip pen drawings, and he had a show in 1983 of his drawings at New York's Margo Feiden Gallery, but really got going in the early 1990s when he became acquainted with the screenprinter Joe Petro III, who became his partner in making his colorful drawings available as silkscreens. With a touch of cubism, mixed with a Paul Klee gift for caricature, a Calder-like ability to balance color and line, and more than a touch of sixties psychedelic sensibility, Vonnegut's aesthetic is as idiosyncratic and defiant of tradition as his books. While writing came to be more onerous in his later years, making art became his joyful primary activity, and he made drawings up until his death in 2007. This volume, and a planned touring exhibition of the drawings, will introduce Vonnegut's legion of fans to an entirely new side of his irrepressible creative personality.

Best known for her Oscar-nominated roles in the smash hits Paper Moon and Blazing Saddles, Madeline Kahn (1942–1999) was one of the most popular comedians of her time—and one of the least understood. She turned out as reserved and refined as her characters were bold and bawdy. Almost a Method actor in her approach, she took her work seriously. When crew members and audiences laughed, she asked why—as if they were laughing at her—and all her life she remained unsure of her gifts. William V. Madison examines Kahn’s film career, including not only her triumphs with Mel Brooks and Peter Bogdanovich, but also her overlooked performances in The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes’ Smarter Brother and Judy Berlin, her final film. Her work in television—notably her sitcoms—also comes into focus. New York theater showered her with accolades, but also with remarkably bad luck, culminating in a disastrous outing in On the Twentieth Century that wrecked her reputation on Broadway. Only with her Tony-winning performance in The Sisters Rosensweig, fifteen years later, did Kahn regain her standing. Drawing on new interviews with family, friends, and such colleagues as Lily Tomlin, Carol Burnett, Gene Wilder, Harold Prince, and Eileen Brennan, as well as archival press and private writings, Madison uncovers Kahn’s lonely childhood and her struggles as a single woman working to provide for her erratic mother. Above all, Madison reveals the paramount importance of music in Kahn’s life. A talented singer, Kahn entertained offers for operatic engagements long after she was an established Hollywood star, and she treated each script as a score. As Kahn told one friend, her ambition was “to be the music.”

Ihr einziger Antrieb ist die Lust, die Lust auf vierzehnjährige Jungs. Celeste ist Ende zwanzig und tritt ihre neue Stelle als Lehrerin an einer Junior High School in Tampa, Florida, mit einer einzigen Absicht an: Sie wird einen ihrer Schüler verführen. Sie selbst hat panische Angst davor zu altern - alle erwachsenen Körper schrecken sie ab, Teenager dagegen wirken auf sie wie ein Jugendelixier. Als ihr Blick fällt auf den naiven und zurückhaltenden Jack Patrick fällt, erkennt sie in ihm das perfekte Opfer. Ohne moralische Bedenken manipuliert sie den Jungen, der seine schöne Lehrerin bewundert und sich von ihrer Aufmerksamkeit geschmeichelt fühlt. Doch ihre Gier ist unersättlich und irgendwann geht Celeste zu weit. In ihrem Debüt erzählt Alissa Nutting den Tabubruch radikal aus der Perspektive ihrer gefühlskalten, psychopathischen Protagonistin. Tampa ist eine moderne Antwort auf Nabokovs Lolita und erinnert an American Psycho, wenn Alissa Nutting unserer Gesellschaft gnadenlos den Spiegel vorhält und dabei alle Tabus bricht.

'All of the true things I am about to tell you are shameless lies.' Dr Felix Hoenikker, one of the founding fathers of the atomic bomb, has left a deadly legacy to the world. For he is the inventor of Ice-nine, a lethal chemical capable of freezing the entire planet. The search for its whereabouts leads to Hoenikker's three eccentric children, to a crazed dictator in the Caribbean, to madness. Will Felix Hoenikker's death wish come true? Will his last, fatal gift to humankind bring about the end that, for all of us, is nigh? Told with deadpan humour and bitter irony, Kurt Vonnegut's cult tale of global apocalypse preys on our deepest fears of witnessing the end and, worse still, surviving it . . . 'The time to read Vonnegut is just when you begin to suspect that the world is not what it appears to be. He is not only entertaining, he is electrocuting. You read him with enormous pleasure because he makes your hair stand on end' The New York Times

In der kalifornischen Kleinstadt Pine Cove passieren schreckliche Dinge: Im nahen Atomkraftwerk entsteht ein winziges Leck in der Kühlleitung, und eine Frau namens Bess Leander erhängt sich. Ersteres führt dazu, dass ein Seeungeheuer zu wahrhaft gigantischen Maßen heranwächst. Und der angebliche Selbstmord verursacht der ortsansässigen Psychiaterin folgenschwere Gewissensbisse. Sie befürchtet, mit der großzügigen Verschreibung von Antidepressiva, mit denen sie jahrelang die Stadt versorgte, des Guten zuviel getan zu haben. Also werden die Einwohner auf Entzug gesetzt – was bald zu allerhand Turbulenzen führt. Ebenso wie das Monster, das durch die Gitarrenklänge eines Bluesmusikers angelockt dem Meer entsteigt ...
