Lillian Linden is a liar. On the surface, she looks like a brave survivor of a plane crash. But she´s been lying to her family, her friends, and the whole world since rescue helicopters scooped her and her fellow survivor, Dave Hall, off a deserted island in the South Pacific. Missing for almost two years, the castaways are thrust into the spotlight after their rescue, becoming media darlings overnight. But they can´t tell the real story--so they lie. The public is fascinated by the castaways´ saga, but Lillian and Dave must return to their lives and their spouses. Genevieve Randall--a hard-nosed journalist and host of a news program--isn´t buying it. She suspects Lillian´s and Dave´s explanations about the other crash survivors aren´t true. And now, Genevieve´s determined to get the real story, no matter how many lives it destroys. In this intriguing tale of survival, secrets, and redemption, two everyday people thrown together by tragedy must finally face the truth…even if it tears them apart. 1. Language: English.

New York Times best-selling author Nancy Thayer returns to her beloved Nantucket in a highly emotional, wholly entertaining tale of three sisters forced to confront the past over one event-filled summer on the island. Charming ladies’ man Rory Randall dies with one last trick up his sleeve: His will includes a calculating clause mandating a summer-long reunion for his daughters, all from different marriages - that is, if they hope to inherit his posh Nantucket house. Relations among the three sisters are sour thanks to long-festering jealousies, resentments, and misunderstandings. Arden, a successful television host in Boston, hasn’t been back to the island since her teenage years, when accusations of serious misbehavior led to her banishment. College professor Meg hopes to use her summer to finish a literary biography and avoid an amorous colleague. And secretive Jenny, an IT specialist, faces troubling questions about her identity while longing for her sisters’ acceptance. To their surprise, the three young women find their newfound sisterhood easier to trust than the men who show up to complicate their lives. And if that weren’t problematic enough, their mothers descend on the island. When yet another visitor drops by the house with shocking news, the past comes screaming back with a vengeance. Having all the women from his life under his seaside roof - and overseeing the subsequent drama of that perfect storm - Rory Randall might just be enjoying a hearty laugh from above. Nancy Thayer’s novel insightfully illustrates how the push and pull of family altercations make us whole. It’s how the Randall sisters come to forgive, and learn to open their hearts to love. 1.

When Queen Elizabeth arrived in Lower Fort Garry, Manitoba in 1970, she was, like many foreign leaders, greeted with a reception and offered tokens by her hosts. What was different about this occasion, however, were the gifts offered: live elk and beaver. In the long-standing tradition of the Hudson´s Bay Company, should the King or Queen arrive in the lands governed by the charter King Charles II granted in 1660, he or she would be presented with two elk and two beavers by Company officials. Only Queen Elizabeth and her father had the opportunity to take advantage of this part of the charter´s clauses, but the royal houses of Britain had benefitted from the rule of the Hudson´s Bay Company for hundreds of years beforehand. Britain had grown rich on the profits brought into the country from across the seas in North America. Ironically, however, the 300-year relationship between the British Crown and the Hudson´s Bay Company may never have developed without the mistakes of the rival French government in relation to their own adventurers. After the Englishman Henry Hudson, under the aegis of the Dutch East India Company, sailed by Manhattan in 1609, he returned home with good news and bad news. Like the other explorers before him, he hadn´t been able to find a water route to the Orient. He had, however, returned with maps (confiscated by the English) and beaver pelts. With that, it became clear that the region around the bay that would take Hudson´s name was a very promising new territory for trade and settlement, which would become a serious bone of contention between the Dutch and the English for the rest of the century. In 1614, another Dutch East India merchant, Adriaen Block, entered through the narrows of the East River between Queens and Randall´s Island, a difficult and dangerous passage that later sank numerous ships and that Block named Hell´s Gate (Hellegat). The European world would know the name ´´Manhates´´ when Block returned to 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Clem.

Die Rezeptionsgeschichte illusionistischer Kunst ist mit jeweils aktuellen Wahrnehmungsformen auf das Engste verknüpft. In Zeiten von Photoshop, Fake News und Social Media besteht eine zunehmende Verunsicherung darüber, ob wir es mit Schein oder mit Realität respektive Wahrheit zu tun haben. Die Kunst kann dabei ein wertvolles Kalibrierungsinstrument sein. Der reich bebilderte Band mit Beiträgen aus den Neurowissenschaften sowie der Kunst-, Kultur- und Mediengeschichte führt den Leser durch die Geschichte der Lust an der Täuschung: von der bildenden Kunst bis zum Design, von der Antike bis in die jüngste Gegenwart.
