When Clifford Stilton dies, his son Gene crams his carefully kept diaries into a hall cupboard – but Clifford's words have too much life in them to be ignored, and start to permeate his family's world. Clifford taught Gene about how to find rocks and fossils, and about how to kill birds and fish. Gene passes on a similar inheritance to his daughters, Bridget and Christina – they have their own ways of digging and discovering the past, keeping an account of life, watching out for the varieties of death that lie hidden. Etta their mother tells a very different story of her 1940s childhood. In a Fishbone Church spans continents and decades. From the Berlin rave scene to the Canterbury duck season, from the rural 1950s to the cosmopolitan present, these five vivid lives cohere in a deeply affecting and exhilarating novel. In a Fishbone Church, Catherine Chidgey's acclaimed debut, won the Hubert Church Award for Best First Book in the Montana New Zealand Book Awards, the Adam Award, the regional Commonwealth Prize for Best First Novel, and a Betty Trask Award in the UK, where it was also longlisted for the Orange Prize. First published in 1998, it has been a bestseller in New Zealand and has been published around the world.

Der Versuch, die Grundkenntnisse des Oz-Talk zu erlernen, sollte für jeden Besucher des fünften Kontinents Voraussetzung für diesen Abstecher sein. Den Slang Australiens prägen natürlich die Aussies selbst, und die sind vom Naturell her eher deftig, ein wenig rauh (wie ihr Land), meist aber herzlich. Gesprochen wird nach dem Motto "nur so viel wie nötig, dafür so schnell wie möglich". Böse Zungen behaupten, Aussies müssten so schnell sprechen und dabei den Mund kaum aufmachen, um sich vor lästigen Fliegen zu schützen, die, sitzen sie erst einmal zwischen den Zähnen, dem Geschmack des Bieres abträglich sind. Werden dazu noch silbenweise Wörter verschluckt, die Reste aber mit unverständlichen Kunstwörtern vermischt, dann kann die Verständigung schon schwierig werden. Aber "no worries", um sich auf den Ernstfall vorzubereiten, dafür gibt es ja dieses Buch! Was man von einer Sprache in der Schule lernt, ist eine Sache, was man wirklich spricht, eine andere. Für Reisende, die nicht nur verstanden werden möchten, sondern auch verstehen wollen, "was Sache ist", bieten die Slang-Titel der Kauderwelsch-Reihe Wörter, Sätze und Ausdrücke der Umgangssprache, die man täglich hört, aber vom Lehrer verschwiegen wurden und auch kaum im Wörterbuch zu finden sind.

In April 2009, my daughter knowing the journey I was on, asked me to join her as she tried to make her life more positive. She suggested that her grandmother, she and I email each other daily with things we were grateful for. Her hope was that it would brighten her outlook on life and make her a more positive person. What follows are selected emails from that journey and how her simple request changed my life. My wish for you today is that you take what my daughter has started and make it your own.

Both of Edo Nyland's theses are in contradiction to current opinions of linguists, who tend to suppose polygenesis of language families and language changes caused by natural evolution. Unbelievable? Edo Nyland gives many convincing proofs in this book: There are hundreds of examples of words, taken from different languages, being decoded by the same method, revealing their hidden meaning. The decoding method is successfully applied to the translation of the forgotten language OGAM, the remains of which are found on standing stones of Ireland, Scotland and North America. Other currently available translations of Linear-B Text on Cretan clay tablets, supposed to be written in ancient Greek, and of the enigmatic book AURAICEPT of the Benedictine monks, supposed to written in Celtic language, have been considerably improved by the same decoding method. Edo Nyland's, web site, where he presents the contents of this book, has been selected as a featured site in Lightspan's StudyWeb as one of the best educational resources on the Web. The book can be read easily by interested laymen. Scholars of linguistics, stone-age and medieval history, religion and anthropology might use this book for a critical revision of their current paradigms.

From WILLA Literary Award-winning author Jaimee Wriston comes a novel for fans of Jami Attenberg and Elizabeth Strout about a former model whose undisciplined granddaughter turns her fastidious, controlled life upside down, forcing her to confront what she values. Amelia MacQueen has lost her favorite son, Gavin, to a suspicious drowning, for which her daughter-in-law has been convicted. She’s been awarded temporary custody of Gavin and Cassie's twelve-year-old daughter, Heaven, a name that makes Amelia cringe. Reluctantly, she takes Heaven in, but asks the girl to call her Grandmelia instead of Grandma, a name that doesn't make Amelia feel quite so old. The daughter of drug addicts, who has long been left to her own devices, Heaven does not appreciate her grandmother’s constant critical ministrations, and the pair quickly butt heads. She instead bonds with Uncle Daniel, Amelia's older, agoraphobic son, who never leaves his bedroom. Through the wall between their rooms, Daniel spins Celtic tales for Heaven from the Isle of Skye, where the family's ancestors lived, including fifteen-year-old Maggie, who mysteriously disappeared crossing the Atlantic many years ago. Heaven decides that the best way to deal with bullying at school is to become a siren from one of Uncle Daniels's stories. She sings "drowning songs" in the swim team pool, luring mean girl Bethany Harrison under at the deep end. Then, Amelia comes home one day to find her granddaughter serving Oreos to the cops who picked her up for "snaking" junk food from the neighborhood. As much as Amelia loved Gavin, Heaven is the last thing Amelia would have asked for, but when Heaven goes missing during a dangerous storm one night, Amelia is forced to reexamine her outlook on family. In vivid prose, Jaimee Wriston tells a wry multi-generational tale of redemption, exploring the bonds that make and break a family and the transformative power of storytelling.
