Sommer 2011. Adolf Hitler erwacht auf einem leeren GrundstĂŒck in Berlin-Mitte. Ohne Krieg, ohne Partei, ohne Eva, dafĂŒr unter Tausenden von AuslĂ€ndern und Angela Merkel. 66 Jahre nach seinem vermeintlichen Ende startet er gegen jegliche Wahrscheinlichkeit eine neue Karriere im Fernsehen. Dieser Hitler ist keine Witzfigur, sondern erschreckend real. Und das Land, auf das er trifft, ist es auch: zynisch, hemmungslos erfolgsgeil und vollkommen chancenlos gegenĂŒber dem Demagogen und der Sucht nach Quoten, Klicks und "GefĂ€llt mir!"-Buttons. Eine Persiflage? Eine Satire? Polit-Comedy? All das und mehr: Dieser Roman ist ein literarisches KabinettstĂŒck erster GĂŒte.

"What would happen if Adolf Hitler woke up in modern-day Berlin? In a bestselling satirical novel, he'd end up a TV comedy star . . . [Look Who's Back] has unsurprisingly sparked debate in a country that has grappled for decades with Hitler's unconscionable legacy."-Time Timur Vermes' record-breaking bestseller, Look Who's Back, is a satirical novel that imagines what would happen if Hilter reawakened in present-day Germany. The book was a massive success in Germany, selling more than 1.5 million copies. Janet Maslin of The New York Times called Look Who's Back"desperately funny . . . an ingenious comedy of errors." In the novel, Adolf Hitler wakes up in 2011 from a 66-year sleep in his subterranean Berlin bunker to find the Germany he knew entirely changed: Internet-driven media spreads ideas in minutes and fumes celebrity obsession; immigration has produced multicultural neighborhoods bringing together people of varying race, ethnicity, and religion; and the most powerful person in government is a woman. Hitler is immediately recognized . . . as an impersonator of uncommon skill. The public assumes the fulminating leader of the Nazi party is a performer who is always in character, and soon his inevitable viral appeal begets YouTube stardom, begets television celebrity on a Turkish-born comedian's show. His bigoted rants are mistaken for a theatrical satire-exposing prejudice and misrepresentation-and his media success emboldens Hitler to start his own political party, and set the country he finds a shambles back to rights. With daring and dark humor, Look Who's Back skewers the absurdity and depravity of the cult of personality in modern media culture.

Dakota: I'm infatuated with Braden. He became my addiction the moment we kissed. And that was a grave mistake. I wish it never happened. But I yearn for that feeling every time I close my eyes. He knew how I felt and sometimes he would gaze at me in ways that made me writhe. But these are lines that shouldn't be blurred. Ever. Eyes that shouldnât lock. Lips that shouldnât be sucked. I canât forget his touch no matter how hard I try. It burns so sweet. This was not supposed to happen. This is forbidden. BecauseâŠBraden is the older brother of my boyfriendâJordan. And Jordan died years ago. Braden: Dakota is off-limits, an enticement that branded my spirit with this insatiable appetite to have her, seize her, and savor her like she was made for me. But if I stepped over that boundary, if I gave into my desire, I wasnât sure I could endure the regret that continued to burden my life. It would change the course of both of our lives. And it might make things become too far gone for the scars of our past to heal. It terrifies me, wanting to open a door that I donât know what lies behind it. But I canât back away from it. The desire is too convincing. But my hunger for herâŠit courses through me, burning hotter and hotter. I know how this ends. The hunger clouds my thoughts, slowly chipping at my resolve, to the point where I can no longer resist. My infatuation for her is the only way I could feel alive. But it races through my blood, like a drug, increasing its grip, its command burrowing deeper within me until it swallows me whole. Dakota is my drug. My ravenous craving. My fix. This is playing in fire. Iâm well aware of that. And it wonât stop me at all. keywords: new adult romance 2016, new adult romance, bad boys and good girls, coming of age romance, strong female lead, contemporary romance, scarred hero, gritty romance, starting over, tragic past, tattooed hero

Palo Alto is the debut of a powerful new literary voice. Written with an immediacy and sense of place. Palo Alto traces the lives of an extended group of teenagers as they experiment with vices of all kinds, struggle with their families and one another, and succumb to self-destructive, often heartless nihilism. Franco presents his characters in all their raw humanity, while at the same time providing insight into the teenage mind. In the classic American tradition of story-cycles such as Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio, Palo Alto presents a stark, vivid, disturbing, but, above all, compassionate portrait of lives on the rough fringes of youth.

From the bestselling author of Kill Your Friends, a wildly funny look at the midlife crisis of a loveable rogue. âA high-octane novel of excessâ (Ian Rankin). Irish novelist Kennedy Marr is a first rate bad boy. When he is not earning a fortune as one of Hollywoodâs most sought after scriptwriters, he is drinking, insulting and philandering his way through Los Angeles, âsuccessfully debunking the myth that men are unable to multitask.â He is loved by many women, but loathed by even more including ex-wives on both sides of the pond. Kennedyâs appetite for trouble is insatiable, but when he discovers that he owes 1.4 million dollars in back taxes, it seems his outrageous, hedonistic lifestyle may not be as sustainable as he thought. Forced to accept a teaching position at sleepy Deeping University, where his ex-wife and teenaged daughter now reside, Kennedy returns to England with a paper trail of tabloid headlines and scorned starlets hot on his bespoke heels. However, as he acclimatizes to the quaint campus Kennedy is forced to reconsider his laddish lifestyle. Incredible as it may seem, there might actually be a father and a teacher lurking inside this âpreening, narcissistic, priapic sociopathâ. âA sharp and knowing satire of the film industry, publishing and academia.â âThe Guardian
