CNN once stated that sleeping in Seoul is for losers. With so much to do in Korea's capital after sundown, they argued, hitting the pillow could only be a waste of time. For Seoul is a new world at night: as its glittering lights pop on to hail the onset of evening, a whole other urban landscape awakes where shining shopping malls, steamy saunas, and lively clubs and bars can be enjoyed round the clock. Relish the refreshing breeze while cycling along the riverbanks at night, and when hunger calls, enjoy a generous and delicious late night meal. Seoul — the city that never sleeps — shows a beautiful new side at night, and is full of shimmering and mesmerizing lights.

During the 1970s the Republic of Korea (South Korea) was a strange mixture of modern industry and medieval traditions, of Christianity and Shamanism, of a democratic façade masking a brutal totalitarian dictatorship. The dictator’s wife was assassinated by his enemies, and the role of First Lady fell to the dictator’s daughter. No one was free of suspicion; no one escaped punishment for disobedience. There were several American families living in the R.O.K. during that time, descendants of the first missionaries and businessmen to break through the Silk Curtain and settle in what had been until the late nineteenth century The Hermit Kingdom. These people were treated with respect but were under constant surveillance to make sure they did not threaten the regime. Their names, like the names of the Koreans integral to this story, are altered for their protection. Thomas Wood, a Peace Corps volunteer who specialized in hydraulic engineering, who now works for a prominent American company, took careful notes on the things he heard and saw while he worked in the R.O.K, from 1974—1977. This novel, featuring barely disguised characters participating in thinly veiled events, captures the essence of those days. Boyce Mann’s journey back to the land of his birth, what he finds there, what happens to him there, represent a fiction that Thomas Wood calls “historical fantasy.” His story may not have happened, but it did happen. You will find this novel as intriguing and fascinating as you did The Year of Living Dangerously, and you will find that it touches you more deeply than that story because Boyce Mann is an American, not an Australian, and he faces his dangers not in a country like Indonesia, not well known to Americans, but in a country that has been military partners with the United States for over sixty years. Read this story carefully, read it with relish, read it for enlightenment about Koreans and about ourselves. Once you begin to read, you will not stop; and once you have finished it you will much more aware of the ambiguities of the international pageant.

Orientation: A Journey is an autobiographical account of a group of African American tourists who traveled on a tour to Europe, Asia and North Africa. The writer inserts fictional situations in the book to enable the reader to view the bareback narrative in relation to, or as a divergence from the autobiographical portions of the book. As a reality, these segments in the book are its core that lends itself to the fiction he creates, which propels the writer's rush of awareness, and bares his accelerated consciousness, enabling him to carry the fictitious segments of the book on a non-liner, narrative, course.

Auf der Shortlist für den Deutschen Buchpreis 2016 «Wenn Sie bipolar sind, hat Ihr Leben keine Kontinuität mehr. Die Krankheit hat Ihre Vergangenheit zerschossen, und in noch stärkerem Maße bedroht sie Ihre Zukunft. Mit jeder manischen Episode wird Ihr Leben, wie Sie es kannten, weiter verunmöglicht. Die Person, die Sie zu sein und kennen glaubten, besitzt kein festes Fundament mehr. Sie können sich Ihrer selbst nicht mehr sicher sein. Und Sie wissen nicht mehr, wer Sie waren. Was sonst vielleicht als Gedanke kurz aufleuchtet, um sofort verworfen zu werden, wird im manischen Kurzschluss zur Tat. Jeder Mensch birgt wohl einen Abgrund in sich, in welchen er bisweilen einen Blick gewährt; eine Manie aber ist eine ganze Tour durch diesen Abgrund, und was Sie jahrelang von sich wussten, wird innerhalb kürzester Zeit ungültig. Sie fangen nicht bei null an, nein, Sie rutschen ins Minus, und nichts mehr ist mit Ihnen auf verlässliche Weise verbunden.» Thomas Melle leidet seit vielen Jahren an der manisch-depressiven Erkrankung, auch bipolare Störung genannt. Nun erzählt er davon, erzählt von persönlichen Dramen und langsamer Besserung – und gibt so einen außergewöhnlichen Einblick in das, was in einem Erkrankten vorgeht. Die fesselnde Chronik eines zerrissenen Lebens, ein autobiografisch radikales Werk von höchster literarischer Kraft.

Ein seltsam verstörendes, hypnotisierendes Buch über eine Frau, die, laut ihrem Ehemann an Durchschnittlichkeit kaum zu übertreffen ist – bis sie eines Tages beschließt, kein Fleisch mehr zu essen... »Bevor meine Frau zur Vegetarierin wurde, hielt ich sie für nichts Besonderes. Bei unserer ersten Begegnung fand ich sie nicht einmal attraktiv. Mittelgroß, ein Topfschnitt, irgendwo zwischen kurz und lang, gelbliche unreine Haut, Schlupflider und dominante Wangenknochen. So fühlte ich mich weder von ihr angezogen noch abgestoßen und sah daher keinen Grund, sie nicht zu heiraten.« Yeong-Hye und ihr Ehemann sind ganz gewöhnliche Leute. Er geht beflissen seinem Bürojob nach und hegt keinerlei Ambitionen. Sie ist eine zwar leidenschaftslose, aber pflichtbewusste Hausfrau. Die angenehme Eintönigkeit ihrer Ehe wird jäh gefährdet, als Yeong-Hye beschließt, sich fortan ausschließlich vegetarisch zu ernähren und alle tierischen Produkte aus dem Haushalt entfernt. »Ich hatte einen Traum«, so ihre einzige Erklärung. Ein kleiner Akt der Unabhängigkeit, aber ein fataler, denn in einem Land wie Südkorea, in dem strenge soziale Normen herrschen, gilt der Vegetarismus als subversiv. Doch damit nicht genug. Bald nimmt Yeong-Hyes passive Rebellion immer groteskere Ausmaße an. Sie, die niemals gerne einen BH getragen hat, fängt an, sich in der Öffentlichkeit zu entblößen und von einem Leben als Pflanze zu träumen. Bis sich ihre gesamte Familie gegen sie wendet. Die Vegetarierin ist eine kafkaeske Geschichte in drei Akten über Scham und Begierde, Macht und Obsession sowie unsere zum Scheitern verurteilten Versuche, den Anderen zu verstehen, der ja doch, wie man selbst, Gefangener im eigenen Leib ist.
