Beryl Bainbridge - According ​to Queeny
"Some ​writers are drawn to the historical novel but few have risen to the task more ingeniously than Beryl Bainbridge," declares the New York Times Book Review, and in her latest work of fiction Bainbridge again proves the singularity of the invention and genius that produced her best-selling The Birthday Boys and award-winning Master Georgie. Taking her inspiration from eighteenth-century English history and literature, Bainbridge transforms meticulous research into a brilliantly imaginative portrayal of the complex relationship that the renowned literary giant Dr. Samuel Johnson enjoyed with his benefactress, Mrs. Thrale. Mrs. Thrale, however, also has a daughter. Her name is Queeney, and it is through her keen eye that the unusual alliance between the great man and his lesser-known but equally fascinating friend is explored.

John Grisham - The ​Broker
In ​his final hours in the Oval Office the outgoing President grants a controversial last minute pardon to Joel Backman, a notorious Washington power broker who has spent the last six years hidden away in a federal prison. What no one knows is that the President issues the pardon only after receiving enormous pressure from the CIA. It seems that Backman, in his power broker heyday, may have obtained secrets that compromise the world's most sophisticated satellite surveillance system. Backman is quietly smuggled out of the country in a military cargo plane, given a new name, a new identity, and a new home in Italy. Eventually, after he has settled into his new life, the CIA will leak his whereabouts to the Israelis, the Russians, the Chinese and the Saudis. Then the CIA will do what it does best: sit back and watch. The question is not whether Backman will survive - there's no chance of that. The question the CIA needs answered is, who will kill him?

Paulo Coelho - The ​Devil and Miss Prym
A ​community devoured by greed, cowardice and fear. A man persecuted by the ghosts of his painful past. A young woman searching for happiness. In one eventful week, each of them will face questions of life, death and power, and each of them will have to choose their own path. Will they choose good or evil? The remote village of Viscos is the setting for this extraordinary struggle. A stranger arrives, carrying with him a backpack containing a notebook and eleven gold bars. He comes searching for the answer to a question that torments him: are human beings, in essence, good or evil? In welcoming the mysterious foreigner, the whole village becomes an accomplice to his sophisticated plot, which will forever mark their lives. In this stunning new novel, Paulo Coelho dramatizes the struggle within every soul between light and darkness, and its relevance to our everyday struggles: to dare to follow our dreams, to have the courage to be different and to master the fear that prevents us from truly living. The Devil and Miss Prym is a story charged with emotion, in which the integrity of being human meets a terrifying test.

Peter James - Dead ​Simple
Michael ​Harrison had it all: good looks, charm, natural leadership, a wicked sense of humor, and now, Ashley, his fiancée. While out celebrating with a group of friends a few nights before the wedding, Michael suddenly and unexpectedly finds himself enclosed in a coffin equipped only with a flashlight, a dirty magazine, a walkie-talkie, and a tiny breathing tube. It's all in good fun — payback for the grief his mates suffered due to his own penchant for tomfoolery — that is until the four are killed in a drunk driving accident just moments after leaving Michael completely alone and buried alive. Detective Superintendent Grace—himself dealing with the pain of losing his wife—is brought on to the case when Ashley reports Michael missing. Suspicions are raised when Michael's only friend not at the bachelor party refuses to cooperate, and Ashley's faithfulness—not to mention her increasingly mysterious past—are suddenly thrown in to question. As Superintendent Grace soon discovers, one man's disaster is another man's fortune.

George Grossmith - Weedon Grossmith - The ​Diary of a Nobody
The ​Diary of a Nobody is the fictitious record of fifteen months in the life of Charles Pooter, his family, friends and small circle of acquaintances. It first appeared, serialised in Punch magazine and might be regarded as the first ‘blog’; being a record of the simplicities and humiliations in the life of this mundane, but upright, city clerk, who had an incontestable faith that a record of his daily life was worth preserving for posterity. Set in about 1891 in Holloway, which was then a typical suburb of the impecuniously respectable kind, the authors contrive a record of the manners, customs and experiences of the late Victorian era. The bare record of facts, simply recorded, manages to be humorous rather than dull, no doubt because of the usual occupations of the authors. George Grossmith (1847-1912) was an actor and comedian. Weedon Grossmith (1852-1919) was an entertainer and illustrated the original work.

Jean Craighead George - My ​Side of the Mountain
Every ​kid thinks about running away at one point or another; few get farther than the end of the block. Young Sam Gribley gets to the end of the block and keeps going--all the way to the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York. There he sets up house in a huge hollowed-out tree, with a falcon and a weasel for companions and his wits as his tool for survival. In a spellbinding, touching, funny account, Sam learns to live off the land, and grows up a little in the process. Blizzards, hunters, loneliness, and fear all battle to drive Sam back to city life. But his desire for freedom, independence, and adventure is stronger. No reader will be immune to the compulsion to go right out and start whittling fishhooks and befriending raccoons. Jean Craighead George, author of more than 80 children's books, including the Newbery Medal-winning Julie of the Wolves, created another prizewinner with My Side of the Mountain--a Newbery Honor Book, an ALA Notable Book, and a Hans Christian Andersen Award Honor Book. Astonishingly, she wrote its sequel, On the Far Side of the Mountain, 30 years later, and a decade after that penned the final book in the trilogy, Frightful's Mountain, told from the falcon's point of view. George has no doubt shaped generations of young readers with her outdoor adventures of the mind and spirit. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

John Maisel - Isten-e ​Jézus? / Is Jesus God?
A ​Moszkvai Állami Egyetem tanárai és hallgatói számára tartott előadás átdolgozott anyaga. Az egyik oldalon angol, a másikon magyar nyelven! ELŐSZÓ Ezt az előadást a Moszkvai Állami Egyetem tanári kara és hallgatói számára tartottam a Szovjetunióban 1990-ben. Hallgatóságom nagyrészt ateista, templomba nem járó tanárokból és hallgatókból állt, akiknek nem volt ismeretük a keresztény hitről, sem bibliai tájékozottságuk. Az volt a célom, hogy világossá tegyem Jézus Krisztus személye; állításai és céljai egyedülálló voltát, és érthetően elmagyarázzam, hogyan létesíthet valaki kapcsolatot az igaz, élő Istennel Jézus Krisztuson keresztül. Az előadás eredményeként a hallgatóság nagy része jelezte, hagy szeretne velem imádkozni, és átadta az életét Jézusnak. Mint azt az egyik egyetemi tanár mondta: „Ez az első alkalom, hogy a keresztény hit egyedülállóságának ésszerű magyarázatát hallottam.” Egy másik, fizika szakos tanár ezt mondta nekem: „Az egyetlen alkalom, amikor valaha is Istenre gondoltam akkor volt, amikor az ateista szemléletű tanári vizsgáimat tettem. Valamilyen ismeretlen okból eljöttem az ön előadására, és most már tudom, hogy csakis Isten töltheti be életem ürességét.” Remélem, hogy ha bőséges életet és megbocsátást keres, meg fogja találni e kis könyv olvasása közben, még akkor is, ha nem ateista, és jár templomba. Szeretném hálámat kifejezni Jane Prattnek, azért a jó néhány óráért, melyet számítógépe előtt töltött begépelve és újragépelve ezt a magnófelvételről lejegyzett előadást; Jan Rodgernek, Carolyn Prince-nek, Ed és Catherine Headingtonnak szerkesztésbeli szaktudásukért, mellyel segítettek egy szóban elhangzott előadást könyv alakban olvashatóvá tenni. Isten áldásával John M. Maisel
