Stilbildend f r ein ganzes Genre, sind Raymond Chandlers Romane heute fester Bestandteil des Kanons amerikanischer Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts. Chandlers Geschichten um den Privatdetektiv Philip Marlowe gelten dabei als die ersten Texte, die das eher triviale Genre der "Krimis" mit der Literatur vers hnten. Die Untersuchung zeichnet Chandlers Weg zu diesem Ergebnis nach. Gezeigt wird, das Chandler sich nicht zuf llig, sondern gezielt dem Kriminalroman n herte und sich ber dessen Chancen und sein Ziel einer Erweiterung des Genres bewu t war. Behandelt werden Chandlers Weg in die Schriftstellerei ebenso wie die Entwicklung seiner Texte, Chandlers Ansichten zur Literatur, sein oft kopierter Sprachstil, Eigenheiten seiner Darstellung sowie jene "Mechanik" der Kriminalerz hlung, durch die Chandler nicht nur seine Texte, sondern eine ganze Gattung von festgefahrenen Schemata befreite.
Mateo Sanchez ist der Sohn eines Gangsterbosses. Er ist stahlhart, abgebrüht, und zögert niemals, wenn etwas getan werden muss. Josiah Evans hat früh seine Eltern verloren. Er ist schüchtern, hat ein sanftes Gemüt und in seinem Herz trägt er eine unstillbare Sehnsucht nach Liebe. Tristan Croft ist ein wohlhabender Anwalt, der sich von ganz unten hochgearbeitet hat. Er hat sich geschworen, sich niemals mehr von anderen abhängig zu machen oder reinreden zu lassen. Drei Männer, die unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten. Und doch wirft das Schicksal diese drei zerbrochenen Seelen zusammen in einen Wirbelsturm der Emotionen und Gefühle, die sie sich weder ersehnt haben noch jemals für möglich gehalten hätten. Meisterhaft und gefühlvoll erzählt Riley Hart eine höchst ungewöhnliche Liebesgeschichte in drei Teilen.
Sarah Cooley has come home to Last Chance, New Mexico, for one reason--because it doesn't change. After an engagement gone bad with a man who wanted to change everything about her, Sarah is more than ready for the town whose motto may as well be, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Chris Reed, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to spark some change in the little town. As the new owner of the Dip 'n' Dine, he's shaking things up to draw folks from all over the Southwest into his restaurant. As it turns out, the winds of change are blowing into Last Chance--just not in the ways that Sarah or Chris might expect. With the same evocative writing and fascinating characters that won fans for her debut novel, Cathleen Armstrong invites readers back to Last Chance for a soul-searching, romantic story of two people navigating the twists and turns of small-town life.

Born to be misunderstood, Spinoza was a man whose theology was banned for Godlessness. The very virtuosity of his reasoning left logicians unsettled, while even to professional thinkers in our own time, Spinoza has seemed too clever by half. And yet, as Roger Scruton shows in this strikingly readable introduction to the man and his though, Spinoza's concerns were both simple and sublime. Few philosophers, indeed, have shown such a straightforward, sustained and honest interest in uncovering the most fundamental aspects of existence. Too important to be dismissed as a mere genius, Spinoza is rediscovered here in all his quiet and consoling simplicity.
