Ashland by Gil Adamson ( )

An assemblage of vivid prose-poetry, both gripping and furious, this collection navigates a macabre tour of nightmares, perverse secrets, and death-focused mythologies. Creating a world awash in violence and history, a landscape of gunslingers, madwomen, ghosts, and wolves is given greater shape with each concise, narrative verse. Enigmatic and thrilling, these compiled pieces lay the groundwork for Adamson?s award-winning and best-selling novel, The Outlander. Combining neo-gothicism, surrealist snapshots, feminism, and postmodern parables, each lyric moment echoes the characteristics of the outlaws described within?seductive and a little bit dangerous

Hilf mir, Jacques Cousteau : Roman by Gil Adamson ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Skurril, witzig, charmant - die perfekte Sommerlektüre Die junge Hazel wächst in Kanada in einer skurrilen Familie moderner Exzentriker auf: Ihr Vater experimentiert gerne mit den elektrischen Leitungen im Haus herum, sodass jeder mal einen Schlag abkriegt. Ihre Mutter geht auf Socken zu Partys, weil Sie keine eleganten Schuhe in ihrer Übergrösse findet. Ihr Onkel liebt seine Haustiere - eine Gans, ein Pferd, eine Katze, ein Hund - und lässt sie zum Wettschwimmen antreten. Und Hazel muss zum täglichen "Fischsitting" zu ihren Nachbarn gehen und freut sich, wenn Jacques Cousteau in den Weiten der blauen Meereswelt auf dem Fernsehbildschirm flimmert. "Hilf mir, Jacques Cousteau" ist das ebenso komische wie anrührendende Porträt einer unkonventionellen Familie mit schrägen Ticks und Macken. Gil Adamson beschreibt ihre Figuren liebevoll und mit lakonischem Blick fürs Detail. Sie erzählt kraftvoll, pointiert, aber auch mit grosser poetischer Leichtigkeit
