Looking back, Martha could've said no when Mr Booker first tried to kiss her. That would've been the sensible thing to do. But Martha is sixteen, she lives in a small dull town, a cemetery with lights, her father is mad, her home is stifling, and she's waiting for the rest of her life to begin. Of course Martha would kiss the charming Englishman who brightened her world with style, adventure, whisky, cigarettes and sex. But Martha didn't count on the consequences.

"2015 erfährt die australische Schriftstellerin Cory Tazlor, dass sie nicht mehr lange zu leben hat. Und so verfasste sie in nur wenigen Wochen dieses ungewöhnliche Buch, das kurz vor ihrem Tod erschien und nun rund um den Globus veröffentlicht wird. Auf bemerkenswerte Weise reflektiert sie darin über den Sinn der Zeit, die ihr noch bleibt. Sie lässt uns teilhaben an ihrer Erfahrung, was das Sterben sie gelehrt hat. Der universellen Frage über ein Leben nach dem Tod begegner sie als nicht-religiöser Mensch in einer sie selbst überraschenden spirituellen Form. Sie erfasst die transformative Kraft des Prozesses, in dem sie sich befindet, und es gelingt ihr, sich diesem kreativ und ehrlich zu stellen. Cory Taylor hat uns allen mit diesem Buch etwas Wertvolles geschenkt. Klug, schlict und zutiefst weise sind ihre Gedanken über das Sterben, die zugleich eine Hymne an das Leben sind"--cover
My beautiful enemy by Cory Taylor( )

"I was blinded by his beauty. In the one or two photographs I've kept of him I can still see it. He stares out of them almost miserably, as if his loveliness is an affliction. Not that I saw it that way, at least not in the beginning. In the beginning I thought it was a kind of miracle." Arthur Wheeler is haunted by his infatuation with a Japanese youth he encountered in the enemy alien camp where he worked as a guard during WW2. Abandoning his wife and baby son, Arthur sets out on a doomed mission to rescue his lover from forced deportation back to Japan, a country in ruins. Thus begins the secret history of a soldier at war with his own sexuality and dangerously at odds with the racism that underpins the crumbling British Empire. Four decades later Arthur is still obsessed with the traumatic events of his youth. He proposes a last reunion with his lost lover, in the hope of laying his ghosts to rest, but this mission too seems doomed to failure. Like Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence and Snow Falling On Cedars, My Beautiful Enemy explores questions of desire and redemption against the background of a savage racial war. In this context, Arthur's private battles against his own nature, and against the conventions of his time, can only end in heartache
