Genre: Fiction

In seinem epischen Meisterwerk über die Suche eines Mannes nach Liebe, dem Sinn des Lebens und perfekten architektonischen Proportionen definiert David Mazzucchelli ein ganzes Genre neu. Asterios Polyp könnte ein glücklicher Mann sein. Er ist ein hoch angesehener Architekt, er unterrichtet an einer ehrwürdigen Uni-versität, und er heiratet die Liebe seines Lebens. Doch Asterios ist auch ein Versager: Keiner seiner ehrgeizigen Entwürfe wurde je gebaut, sie existieren nur auf dem Papier, sein Hochmut macht ihn zu einem einsamen Menschen, seine warmherzige Frau Hana verlässt ihn. Als an seinem 50. Geburtstag seine New Yorker Wohnung in Flammen aufgeht, steht er vor den Trümmern seiner Existenz. Benommen verlässt er die Stadt und heuert irgendwo in einer Kleinstadt als Automechaniker an. Die Menschen dort hätte er früher nur verachtet, jetzt ist er einer von ihnen und sucht, überwältigt von seinen Erinnerungen, nach Erlösung. Und einer zweiten Chance - vielleicht. "Asterios Polyp" ist das Opus magnum eines weltweit bewunderten Comic-Künstlers: ein vielschichtiger Ideenroman, ein faszinierendes Gesamtkunstwerk aus Sprache und Bildern und eine große, berührende Liebesgeschichte.

Mushrooms in Forests and Woodlands

Author: Anthony B. Cunningham

Genre: Nature

Many mushrooms - or the 'fruits of fungi' - are extremely valuable, wild-gathered products which are utilised for both their medicinal properties and as food. In many of the world's tropical and temperate forests, they are the primary source of income for the people who live there. These forests range from temperate woodlands and small forests to high altitude forests in the Himalaya and tropical miombo woodlands in south-central Africa. In south-west China, over 200 species of wild fungi in 64 genera are commercially traded while in Europe and North America, woodlands and small forests are the source of many highly-prized mushrooms and an essential resource for many small enterprises and collectors. Yet the increased demand for timber has resulted in the rapid expansion of forestry, which in turn has destroyed the natural habitat of many fungi, unbalancing both forest economics and ecology. Despite the economic, social and cultural values of fungi, there is a general lack of understanding of their importance to local livelihoods and forest ecology. This book aims to fill this gap and extends the People and Plants Conservation Series beyond the plant kingdom into the related world of fungi and mushrooms. It demonstrates the crucial roles that fungi play in maintaining forest ecosystems and the livelihoods of rural people throughout the world while providing good practice guidelines for the sustainable management of this resource and an assessment of economic value. It brings together the perspectives of biologists, anthropologists and forest and woodland managers to provide a unique inter-disciplinary and international overview of the key issues.

Many mushroom hunters prefer to do their foraging in the marketplace, where all the mushrooms are clearly labeled and safely edible. With this fact in mind, Arleen and Alan Bessette have written Taming the Wild Mushroom, one of the first cooking guides devoted exclusively to choosing and preparing the mushroom species now available in many grocery stores, supermarkets, and natural and whole foods markets. A dozen wild and cultivated species are covered in the book, including White Button, King Bolete, Oyster, Chanterelle, Morel, Paddy Straw, Wood Ear, Shiitake, Enokitake, White Matsutake, Black Truffle, and Wine-cap Stropharia. Easy-to-understand descriptions and excellent color photographs of each species help market foragers choose mushrooms in peak condition. Fifty-seven original, species-specific recipes, from appetizers, soups, and salads to meat and vegetarian entrees to sauces and accompaniments, offer dozens of ways to savor the familiar and exotic flavors of these mushrooms. A mouth-watering photograph accompanies each recipe.
