Der Arzt Jackson Lemon verliert in London sein Herz an Lady Barbarina. Aber sie zu heiraten ist nicht ganz einfach: Ein neureicher Amerikaner in der britischen Aristokratie? Und die englische Lady im modernen New York? Dann ist es so weit: Jackson kehrt mit Ehefrau und Schwägerin Agatha in seine Heimat zurück. Aber wohl fühlt sich Lady Barbarina dort nicht. Ganz anders ihre Schwester: Agatha verliebt sich in einen Landarbeiter aus Kalifornien. Scharfzüngig erzählt Henry James von einer brisanten transatlantischen Eheschließung, von unfreien Frauen und von Frauen, die sich die Freiheit nehmen. Eine zeitlose Gesellschaftssatire

Somewhere in South America, at the home of the country's vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honor of Mr. Hosokawa, a powerful Japanese businessman. Roxanne Coss, opera's most revered soprano, has mesmerized the international guests with her singing. It is a perfect evening -- until a band of gun-wielding terrorists breaks in through the air-conditioning vents and takes the entire party hostage. But what begins as a panicked, life-threatening scenario slowly evolves into something quite different, as terrorists and hostages forge unexpected bonds and people from different countries and continents become compatriots. Friendship, compassion, and the chance for great love lead the characters to forget the real danger that has been set in motion and cannot be stopped

Postmodernism by Eleanor Heartney( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps few words have been as overused and misunderstood in recent times as the term 'postmodernism'. This book presents a lively, wide-ranging and highly readable exploration of what postmodernism has come to mean in the context of contemporary art." "The postmodern revolution replaced the Modernist faith in universality, authenticity, and artistic progress with a world that turned artworks into texts, history into mythology, the artist into a fictional character and reality into an outmoded convention. Postmodernism examines the key developments in the history of postmodern art. It includes a discussion of Neo-expressionism, the 'anti-aesthetic' movement, the art of commodity critique, postmodern feminism and postmodern multiculturalism. In the process it touches on a number of intriguing questions, among them: What is art without an artist? Why is photography the quintessential postmodern medium? How did a movement grounded in denunciations of the commodification of art generate one of the most heated art markets in recent history? Postmodernism brings clarity to a confusing moment in contemporary art."--Jacket
