Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

Now a Hulu limited series starring Christopher Abbott, George Clooney, Kyle Chandler, and Hugh Laurie.

Fifty years after its original publication, Catch-22 remains a cornerstone of American literature and one of the funniest—and most celebrated—books of all time. In recent years it has been named to “best novels” lists by Time, Newsweek, the Modern Library, and the London Observer.

Set in Italy during World War II, this is the story of the incomparable, malingering bombardier, Yossarian, a hero who is furious because thousands of people he has never met are trying to kill him. But his real problem is not the enemy—it is his own army, which keeps increasing the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service. Yet if Yossarian makes any attempt to excuse himself from the perilous missions he’s assigned, he’ll be in violation of Catch-22, a hilariously sinister bureaucratic rule: a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but if he makes a formal request to be removed from duty, he is proven sane and therefore ineligible to be relieved.

This fiftieth-anniversary edition commemorates Joseph Heller’s masterpiece with a new introduction by Christopher Buckley; a wealth of critical essays and reviews by Norman Mailer, Alfred Kazin, Anthony Burgess, and others; rare papers and photos from Joseph Heller’s personal archive; and much more. Here, at last, is the definitive edition of a classic of world literature.


Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of After You by the Jojo Moyes, the stunning sequel to the worldwide phenomenon Me Before You. Read by Anna Acton.

Lou Clark has lots of questions.

Like how it is she's ended up working in an airport bar, spending every shift watching other people jet off to new places.

Or why the flat she's owned for a year still doesn't feel like home.

Whether her close-knit family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago.

And will she ever get over the love of her life.

What Lou does know for certain is that something has to change.

Then, one night, it does.

But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for - or just more questions?

Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe.

Open it and she risks everything.

But Lou once made a promise to live. And if she's going to keep it, she has to invite them in . . .

Silk parachute pants. A gold lamé jumpsuit. Ankle boots with fringe. Were these fashion-forward items sending men running in the opposite direction? Maybe, but Leandra Medine never cared.

Slipping into drop-crotch shorts and a boxed sequin blazer in the dressing room of Topshop in downtown Manhattan, a brokenhearted Leandra had an epiphany. Looking in the mirror, she suddenly realized she didn't have a boyfriend because of the way she dressed. And the more she thought about it, the more she realized that such outfits said a lot about her life-romantic and otherwise.

Now, in her first book, the acclaimed blogger and fashion darling recounts her most significant memories through the lens of her sartorial choices. With her signature sass, blunt honesty, and some personal photos, Leandra shares details of the night she lost her virginity right down to the pair of white tube socks she forgot to take off, as well as when and why she realized her grandma's vintage Hermès ostrich skin clutch could hold much more than just keys and a cell phone. Through it all, she proves you don't need to compromise even your most repellent qualities to find your way into that big white dress (and an organza moto jacket). See? You can have your yeti and wear it, too.

Showcasing the singular voice that has won Leandra millions of fans, this book is a collection of awkwardly funny experiences, a sweet love story, and above all, a reminder to celebrate and embrace a world made for women, by women.

Dieses Buch ist perfekt geeignet für Leser, die nach einem Liebesroman mit Tiefgang suchen.“

--Midwest Book Review (Diane Donovan zu Für jetzt und für immer)

„Ein sehr gut geschriebener Roman, in dem es um die inneren Kämpfe geht, die eine Frau (Emily) durchstehen muss, um ihr wahres Ich zu finden. Der Autorin gelang die Ausarbeitung der Charaktere und die Beschreibung der Handlung wunderbar. Romantik ist zwar Teil der Geschichte, doch sie ist nicht erdrückend. Ein Lob an die Autorin für diesen wunderbaren Auftakt einer Reihe, die verspricht, äußerst unterhaltsam zu werden.“

--Books and Movies Reviews, Roberto Mattos (zu Für jetzt und Für immer)

FÜR IMMER UND EWIG ist das zweite Buch der Romanreihe DIE PENSION IN SUNSET HARBOR, an deren Anfang FÜR JETZT UND FÜR IMMER steht – Buch #1 ist übrigens als kostenloser Download erhältlich!

Die fünfunddreißigjährige Emily Mitchell kündigt ihren Job und lässt sowohl ihre Wohnung als auch ihren Ex-Freund in New York City zurück, um in das verlassene Haus ihres Vaters an der Küste Maines zu fliehen, denn sie braucht dringend eine Veränderung in ihrem Leben. Während sie ihre gesamten Ersparnisse in die Renovierung des historischen Hauses steckt und sich zwischen ihr und dem Grundstücksverwalter Daniel eine romantische Beziehung entwickelt, bereitet sich Emily darauf vor, die Pension am Memorial Day zu eröffnen.

Doch es läuft nicht wie geplant. Emily muss schnell erkennen, dass sie eigentlich keine Ahnung hat, wie man eine Pension führt. Im Haus stehen, trotz ihrer Bemühungen, dringende Reparaturen an, die sie sich nicht leisten kann. Und auch ihr gieriger Nachbar ist immer noch darauf versessen, ihr das Leben schwer zu machen. Doch das Schlimmste kommt erst noch. Gerade als ihre Beziehung zu Daniel aufblüht, kommt ein Geheimnis ans Licht, dass alles verändern wird.

Emily muss eine schwierige Entscheidung treffen, denn ihre Freunde drängen sie dazu, nach New York City zurückzukehren, und auch ihr Ex-Freund möchte sie wiederhaben. Wird sie im Haus ihres Vaters in Sunset Harbor bleiben und sich in das Kleinstadtleben stürzen? Oder wird sie ihren neuen Freunden, Nachbarn und ihrem Leben dort den Rücken zukehren – genau wie dem Mann, in den sie sich verliebt hat?

Buch #3 wird auch bald erhältlich sein.

A dark secret hangs over the old rose gardener's house in the village of Le Variouf. And all the clues seem to point to its inhabitants' past—to the years of World War II, when the idyllic island of Guernsey was occupied by German troops...

The young teacher Franca Palmer is at the end of her rope. Her marriage is reaching a crisis point, and she barely feels capable of continuing to face the demands of her career, her husband, and day-to-day life. In a mad rush she leaves her comfortable home in Berlin and flees to the island of Guernsey in the English Channel; there she rents herself a room in the old rose gardener's house in the village of Le Variouf. In a short time, a peculiar, guarded friendship develops between her and her host, Beatrice Shaye. The older woman has lived on the charmingly situated property for many years with Helene Feldmann—tied together by fate in a relationship that is marked with repugnance and hatred. The two women appear to be bound to one another in a mysterious, incomprehensible way—dating back to the year 1940, when during the occupation of the Channel Islands by German troops, Helene and her husband Erich, a high-ranking officer, took Beatrice in as if she was their own child. From the beginning, the Feldmanns competed for Beatrice's favor, all the more so since, where his wife was concerned, Erich felt only contempt. So it was that with his death on May 1st, 1945, an agonizing phase in both women's lives came to an end. But nevertheless, a shadow still hangs over the house. And one day, another May 1st, there is again a death in Le Variouf.
