Who is Mary Cheney? In the most eagerly awaited political memoir of the season, Mary Cheney, who served as a top campaign aide to her father, the vice president, presents a behind-the-scenes look at the high-intensity world of presidential politics and talks for the first time about her life, her family, and her role in the campaigns of 2000 and 2004. As a senior adviser to her father, she was in the middle of every major event of the 2000 and 2004 presidential contests -- at the conventions, the debates, and on the trail. Both elections made history -- and so did Mary. And for the first time ever, she writes about what it was like to be at the center of her father's campaigns as his daughter, as a member of the senior staff, and, though she never intended it, as a political target for the other side. Mary, her experiences, and her opinions, have been the subject of intense debate in the media and from activists on both ends of the political spectrum, but she has never spoken publicly about herself, her life, or her political views -- until now. In Now It's My Turn, a frank, funny, and down-to-earth memoir, Mary Cheney describes life inside the bubble of a national campaign. She talks about her close relationship with her parents, how it feels to be pursued by the press, and what it was like when John Edwards and John Kerry made her sexual orientation an issue in live debates televised to millions of Americans. As she describes it, life inside a presidential campaign can be uplifting, frustrating, and heartbreaking, but no matter what else it may be, it's always entertaining.

Tolani und Rose leben in Lagos, einer Stadt, die chaotischer und ärmer kaum sein könnte. Tolani würde gerne ihren Freund Sanwo heiraten, doch der vertröstet sie seit Jahren. Rose dagegen sucht in nüchterner Erwägung ihrer Lage nach einem Mann mit Geld und beginnt eine Beziehung mit OC Okonkwo. Als Tolani und Rose die Miete nicht mehr zahlen können, macht OC Okonkwo ein Angebot: Er will die beiden als Drogenkuriere für sich arbeiten lassen. Tolani steigt aus, Rose bleibt bei ihrem Entschluss. Die Konsequenzen ihrer Entscheidungen erzählt Sefi Atta in ihrem zweiten Roman. Die knappe, treffende Sprache der Ich-Erzählerin Tolani, die witzigen, intelligenten Dialoge geben der Geschichte Tempo und eine Leichtigkeit, die die tiefe Menschlichkeit der Protagonisten noch heller aufscheinen lässt.

»Ich stehe für eine Ära, in der bewiesen wurde, dass Fußball gleichzeitig attraktiv und erfolgreich sein kann«, sagt Johan Cruyff im Rückblick auf die 1970er Jahre. Wie kein anderer steht Cruyff für dynamischen, leidenschaftlichen Angriffsfußball. Als Kapitän der niederländischen Nationalmannschaft, bei Ajax Amsterdam und später beim FC Barcelona hatte er mit dieser Taktik legendäre Erfolge erzielt. Der magische Spieler mit der Rückennummer 14 ist der Begründer der Fußball-Philosophie, die in den letzten Jahren vor allem von seinem Schüler Pep Guardiola perfektioniert wurde. Nun erzählt Cruyff, der in einem Atemzug mit Superstars wie Pele, Beckenbauer, Maradona und Messi genannt wird, von den ruhmreichen Stationen seiner Karriere als Spieler und Trainer. Mein Spiel ist eines der erhellendsten und klügsten Bücher, das in den letzten Jahrzehnten über den Fußball geschrieben wurde.
When a banker and a semi-retired impresario come together to plan an evening of light entertainment, the road to the actual performance is not necessarily without its bumps and byways. It doesnt help that the banker falls into something like lust with the impresarios wife and the impresario's reach sometimes tends to exceed his grasp. Nothing goes according to plan: men and women are seduced though only verbally, although a pregnancy does also occur; songs are slaughtered and lines take forever to be learned. A corpse adamantly refuses to remain dead. Although the performance has unavoidably to be postponed, it is in the details of how our heroes finally succeed that both the fun and the story reside. Readers will learn for themselves whether it all comes out right on the night. Among the characters you will meet are a superannuated actress looking for a second or, perhaps more accurately, a third spring, a prompter with the full-blast voice of a foghorn and the soul of Simon Legree, a Ph.D student whose dental attractiveness lures a leviathan towards the rocks, and an often pie-eyed pianist with an unfortunate weakness for the ladies. 'Tonight, It's My Turn' is written as farce, but it is also the story of how a friendship develops between two men who, both on the surface and also in their very essence, have so little in common that the outcome is as unexpected as it is affectionate. This is a book to be enjoyed, read with laughter, and not reported to any of those worthy societies that are concerned with the prevention of cruelty to animals.
