The lovely bones : a novel by Alice Sebold( Book )

282 editions published between 2002 and 2018 in 24 languages and held by 9,510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brutally raped and murdered by a deceptively mild-mannered neighbor, Susie begins with a compelling description of her death. During the next ten years, she watches over her family and friends as they struggle to cope with her murder. She observes their disintegrating lives with compassion and occasionally attempts, sometimes successfully, to communicate her love to them. Although the lives of all who knew her well are shaped by her tragic death, eventually her family and friends survive their pain and grief. In [this novel], Susie continues to grow emotionally. She learns that human existence is "the helplessness of being alive, the dark bright pity of being human feeling as you went, groping in corners and opening your arms to light all of it part of navigating the unknown."--Library Journal

When we first meet 14-year-old Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven.

In the sweet, untroubled voice of a precocious teenage girl, Susie relates the awful events of her death and her own adjustment to the strange new place she finds herself. It looks a lot like her school playground, with the good kind of swing sets

By photographing her subjects against a pristine white background, she captures the dogs' indomitable spirit--their spunk, humor, mystery, and charm.

Susie Salmon führt das ganz normale Leben eines Teenagers in einer amerikanischen Kleinstadt - bis zu jenem Tag im Dezember, als sie allein durch ein Maisfeld nach Hause geht.

Von "ihrem Himmel" aus verfolgt sie das Leben auf der Erde, beobachtet sie, wie ihre Geschwister, Eltern und Freunde mühevoll nach Wegen suchen, um den Verlust zu verarbeiten.

On this earth, a shadow falls by Nick Brandt( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2001, Nick Brandt embarked on an ambitious photographic project, a trilogy of books memorializing the vanishing natural grandeur of East Africa. Focusing on some of the worlds last great populations of large mammals elephants, giraffes, lions, gorillas and their kin he created two of the new century's most influential photographic books: On This Earth (2005) and A Shadow Falls (2009). His iconic portraits of these majestic animals express an empathy usually reserved for human subjects. The magisterial On This Earth, A Shadow Falls collects the most memorable images from Brandt's first two books, along with their accompanying essays. A testament to the bookmakers craft, it is the first volume on Brandt's work to capture the superb quality of his remarkable, large format prints, which are notable for their velvet blacks and tonal subtleties
