Michael Riedel - Singular ​Sensation
The ​extraordinary story of a transformative decade on Broadway, featuring gripping behind-the-scenes accounts of shows such as Rent, Angels in America, Chicago, The Lion King, and The Producers—shows that changed the history of the American theater. The 1990s was a decade of profound change on Broadway. At the dawn of the nineties, the British invasion of Broadway was in full swing, as musical spectacles like Les Miserables, Cats, and The Phantom of the Opera dominated the box office. But Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard soon spelled the end of this era and ushered in a new wave of American musicals, beginning with the ascendance of an unlikely show by a struggling writer who reimagined Puccini’s opera La Bohème as the smash Broadway show Rent. American musical comedy made its grand return, culminating in The Producers, while plays, always an endangered species on Broadway, staged a powerful comeback with Tony Kushner’s Angels in America. A different breed of producers rose up to challenge the grip theater owners had long held on Broadway, and corporations began to see how much money could be made from live theater. And just as Broadway had clawed its way back into the mainstream of American popular culture, the September 11 attacks struck fear into the heart of Americans who thought Times Square might be the next target. But Broadway was back in business just two days later, buoyed by talented theater people intent on bringing New Yorkers together and supporting the economics of an injured city.

Joseph Mitchell - Joe ​Goulds Geheimnis
Im ​New Yorker Greenwich Village der dreißiger und vierziger Jahre arbeitet Joe Gould, ein Bohemien und Penner mit Geniestatus, an einem bahnbrechenden literarischen Werk: einer monumentalen >Erzählten Geschichte< unserer Zeit. Der hoch angesehene Journalist Joseph Mitchell hat ein Porträt Joe Goulds geschrieben und dabei auch das Geheimnis dieses verschwunden geglaubten Meisterwerks gelüftet. "Joseph Mitchell ist ein verborgener Schatz: der Journalist als Künstler. Joe Goulds Geheimnis ist so erhellend wie die große Literatur. Jeder große New Yorker Romanautor wäre glücklich gewesen, wenn er diesen Joe Gould erfunden hätte, jeder Dichter wäre stolz gewesen, wenn er die Musik der Stadt so gut eingefangen hätte." Salman Rushdie "So gut und verrückt wie diese wahre Geschichte muss eine erfundene mindestens sein." Rheinischer Merkur Eine literarische Wiederentdeckung.

And this final play may be their chance at forever . . .

Vi Keeland - The ​Rivals
The ​feud between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar. Only neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before either of us was born. Our grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather. The two men spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third business partner. But in the end, neither man could steal half of her heart away from the other. Eventually, they all went their separate ways. Our grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest business rivals in history. Our fathers continued the family tradition of feuding. And then Weston and I did, too. For the most part, we kept as much distance as possible. Until the day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share. Now I’m stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess our families inherited. As usual, it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats. Weston Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his own good. We were fire and ice. But that shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just one minor problem, though. Every time Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed.

Annika Martin - The ​Billionaire's Wake-up-call Girl
When ​my manager assigns me the task of finding a new wake up call service for our CEO, I think, how hard can this be? Answer: practically impossible. It turns out that no wake-up call company in the world will take him on as a client. They’ve all had enough of his surly personality. So in an effort not to lose my job, I secretly start making the calls myself, every day at 4:30 am sharp. OMG yes you read that right—four freaking thirty in the morning. Confession: I’m not the nicest wake-up-call girl at that hour. Hello! Who wakes up before the roosters are even crowing? Luckily he doesn’t seem to mind my get-your-ass-out-of-bed attitude. Day by day we’re becoming closer, and the calls start turning hot, like pay-by-the-minute hot and oh-so-wild. Snuggled under the covers with the moonlight streaming in the windows, we divulge our secrets to each other, but the one thing that he can never find out is that the sexy vixen who wakes him up every morning is just the lowly assistant who wears frumpy dresses. I can only imagine his disappointment. Now he wants to take me out on a date and he’s scouring Manhattan to find me. He’s an overachieving billionaire bent on a mission. How much longer can I keep up this charade?

Nicola Yoon - The ​Sun is Also a Star
Natasha: ​I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story. Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us. The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

Rage, ​terror, and redemption: these are the stones upon which F. Paul Wilson builds the concluding chapter of Repairman Jack: The Early Years, the prequel trilogy focusing on the formative years of Wilson's globally popular supernatural troubleshooter. The strands of Jack's life, established in the first two books, Cold City and Dark City, are now woven into a complete pattern.

It is a dark and terrible story, full of plots and needless mayhem, with secret agents, a freelance torturer, a secret society as old as human history, love, death, and a very bleak triumph. Jack threads his way through this intricate maze, as people he loves are stripped away from him in a way that presages the later epic series of novels.

Bolgár György - New ​York, időszámítás előtt
Szokatlan ​könyvet tart a kezében az olvasó. Verseskötetet és fotóalbumot egyszerre. A fényképek ugyan egy magánalbumból valók, de a szerzőnek nemcsak most, a New York-i tragédia után, hanem már évekkel ezelőtt, a képek készítése közben is az volt a célja, hogy New Yorkot képben és szóban egyszerre örökítse meg. New Yorknak ugyan egyetlen arcát fényképezte, ám ez az arc száz- és százféle lett. Pontosan ugyanúgy, ahogy az ember arca is állandóan változik. Még a messzeségből nézve is mintha élne ez a város, a versek pedig másfajta, kettős életre keltik. A rosszban éppen jókor. A New York-i halál és pusztulás utáni pillanatokban idézik fel az időszámítás előtti életet. Bolgár Györgynek az ismert rádiós újságírónak eddig nyolc könyve jelent meg, közülük kettő volt verseskötet.

Detective Eve Dallas has taken over the investigation, but there is nothing to explain the man's sudden rage or death.

And when a second man dies under nearly identical circumstances, Eve starts racking her brain for answers and the courage to face the impossible...that this might be a computer virus able to spread from machine to man...

Jonathan Lethem - Chronic ​City
Chase ​Insteadman, a handsome, inoffensive fixture on Manhattan's social scene, lives off residuals earned as a child star on a beloved sitcom called _Martyr & Pesty_. Chase owes his current social cachet to an ongoing tragedy much covered in the tabloids: His teenage sweetheart and fiancée, Janice Trumbull, is trapped by a layer of low-orbit mines on the International Space Station, from which she sends him rapturous and heartbreaking love letters. Like Janice, Chase is adrift, she in Earth's stratosphere, he in a vague routine punctuated by Upper East Side dinner parties. Into Chase's cloistered city enters Perkus Tooth, a wall-eyed free-range pop critic whose soaring conspiratorial riffs are fueled by high-grade marijuana, mammoth cheeseburgers, and a desperate ache for meaning. Perkus's countercultural savvy and voracious paranoia draw Chase into another Manhattan, where questions of what is real, what is fake, and who is complicit take on a life-shattering urgency. Along with Oona Laszlo, a self-loathing ghostwriter, and Richard Abneg, a hero of the Tompkins Square Park riot now working as a fixer for the billionaire mayor, Chase and Perkus attempt to unearth the answers to several mysteries that seem to offer that rarest of artifacts on an island where everything can be bought: Truth. Like Manhattan itself, Jonathan Lethem's masterpiece is beautiful and tawdry, tragic and forgiving, devastating and antic, a stand-in for the whole world and a place utterly unique.

Candace Bushnell - Ötödik ​sugárút 1.
Bushnell ​a társasági élet filozófus-királynője..." New York Times Book Review Napjaink egyik legagyafúrtabb és legolvasmányosabb társadalomkritikusa ezúttal új nézőpontból - a lakóhelyükön keresztül - közelíti meg New York City kemény és szelíd nőit. Az Ötödik sugárút 1. - amely nem egyszerűen egy házszám, hanem egy híres épület neve - tornyos art deco remeke Manhattan egyik legrégebbi és legmenőbb történelmi negyedében emelkedik. Olyan lakóház ez, ahol így vagy úgy, de meg kell dolgozni a bejutásért. Candace Bushnell új regényében ezen épület körül forog az itt lakó és a beköltözni vágyó hősnők élete. A kockázatialap-kezelő mogul nejétől az éltes társasági rovatvezetőnőn át a Los Angelesből ide menekült szabad szellemű művésznőig minden szereplő e híres toronyház fedele alatt kívánja megvalósítani az álmait. Az Ötödik sugárút 1. éles szemű megfigyelésekkel és könyörtelen látlelettel szolgáló mai történet régi és újgazdagokról, amely robbanó elegyet kever Edith Wharton New York ,,aranyfüstös éveit" ábrázoló mesterműveiből és F. Scott Fitzgerald jazzkorszaki meséiből. Bushnell manhattani hősei évtizedekkel később ugyanazért törik magukat, mint irodalmi felmenőik: hatalomra, hírnévre, sikeres házasságra - vagy legalább a látszatára - vágynak. De Bushnell regénye annyira eredeti és friss, hogy az olvasó úgy érzi, most találkozik először a szexuális játszmákkal, az ingatlanszerzéssel és az egy nap alatt elveszített vagyonokkal. A Szex és New York, akárcsak az azt követő művek olyan írót mutatnak, akinek határozott tehetsége van a város aktuális korszellemének megragadására; ahogy az egyik kritikusa fogalmazott: ,,hátborzongató, hogy mindig egy kicsivel előbb érzékeli a kanyart". Könyvről könyvre egyre elmélyültebb, de olyan könnyű kézzel ír, hogy az összetett művei sem tűnnek nehéznek. Olyannyira valósághűek és szinte maguktól bontakoznak ki a történetei, hogy elsőre úgy tetszik, bárki megírhatná őket - de valójában senki nem ír olyan regényeket, mint Candace Bushnell. Szerencsénkre most itt a legújabb, az Ötödik sugárút 1. Candace Bushnell a Szex és New York, a Négy szőke, a Bármi áron, a Rúzs és New York, a Carrie naplója és a Nyár és New York kritikai és közönségsikert aratott szerzője. Első regénye, a Szex és New York alapján népszerű tévésorozatot és filmet készített az HBO. Negyedik könyvét, a Rúzs és New Yorkot az NBC vitte képernyőre. Bushnell a Sirius Staron futó rádióműsor (Sex, Success and Sensibility) házigazdája. New Yorkban él.

Joanna Coles - Peter Godwin - The ​Three of U.S.: A New Life in New York
He's ​preoccupied by the lump on his elbow. She's trying to determine the accuracy of the DIY pregnancy-testing kit. In the summer of 1997, Joanna Coles and Peter Godwin set sail from Southampton for New York and a new life in America. As the quay side band played them off in the drizzle, they anticipated a life of glamorous parties, power brunches and weekend trips to the Bahamas. Coles had been posted to New York as the Guardian correspondent - but discovered that most New Yorkers mistake the paper for the in-house pamphlet published by La Guardia Airport. Peter Godwin decided to write a novel: a year later, it's largely unfinished. Veering from the frankly absurd to the simply bizarre, this book is the alternating diary entries of Coles and Godwin. It chronicles their lives in Manhattan, where they get used to living above the main transvestite drag in Greenwich Village and, after a false start, learn the shocking news that they are to become parents.
