A wrenching debut about the causes and effects of poverty, as seen by a father and son living in a pickup Evicted from their trailer on New Year's Eve, Henry and his son, Junior, have been reduced to living out of a pickup truck. Six months later, things are even more desperate. Henry, barely a year out of prison for pushing opioids, is down to his last pocketful of dollars, and little remains between him and the street. But hope is on the horizon: Today is Junior's birthday, and Henry has a job interview tomorrow. To celebrate, Henry treats Junior to dinner at McDonald's, followed by a night in a real bed at a discount motel. For a moment, as Junior watches TV and Henry practices for his interview in the bathtub, all seems well. But after Henry has a disastrous altercation in the parking lot and Junior succumbs to a fever, father and son are sent into the night, struggling to hold things together and make it through tomorrow. In an ingenious structural approach, Jakob Guanzon organizes Abundance by the amount of cash in Henry's pocket. A new chapter starts with each debit and credit, and the novel expands and contracts, revealing the extent to which the quality of our attention is altered by the abundance-or lack thereof-that surrounds us. Set in an America of big-box stores and fast food, this incandescent debut novel trawls the fluorescent aisles of Walmart and the booths of Red Lobster to reveal the inequities and anxieties around work, debt, addiction, incarceration, and health care in America today.

Inspired by the true story of two friends who landed a deal on Shark Tank. Sixth-grade students-turned-entrepreneurs are on a mission to save the world, one bug at a time! Hallie and Jaye are both sixth graders at Brookdale Middle School, but they couldn't be more different. Jaye is one of the popular kids who'll do almost anything to maintain her status. Hallie's only friend has moved away, and she couldn't care less what anyone thinks of her. So when the two girls are paired up as partners for a pitch competition held by their Business Education and Entrepreneurship class, it's not exactly a perfect match. After all, Jaye doesn't want to be seen with the kid who was dubbed "Bug Girl" after eating a fried cricket during a class trip to the zoo! But the pair are stuck together, and soon enough Jaye is also stuck with Hallie's idea: finding creative ways to sell bugs as food. Jaye's not thrilled but is willing to give it a shot, since winners get to compete in the county competition, potentially followed by states and nationals. And Jaye wants to win. As the competition heats up, can Hallie and Jaye make the judges say "Bug appétit!" or will they only hear crickets? Based on the true story of a sustainable protein start-up company, this illustrated novel is a reimagining for a middle-grade reader. Chirps founders Rose Wang and Laura D'Asaro met as freshmen at Harvard University and cooked up the concept of selling chips made with cricket flour to help Americans feel more comfortable eating bugs. Together, Rose and Laura appeared on the TV show Shark Tank to pitch their idea and landed a deal with Mark Cuban. Chirps chips are now sold in stores across the nation.

An original novel by A.L. Kennedy featuring the Fourth Doctor, as played by Tom Baker in the BBC TV series. Something distinctly odd is going on in Arbroath. It could be to do with golfers being dragged down into the bunkers at the Fetch Brothers' Golf Spa Hotel, never to be seen again. It might be related to the strange twin grandchildren of the equally strange Mrs Fetch – owner of the hotel and fascinated with octopuses. It could be the fact that people in the surrounding area suddenly know what others are thinking, without anyone saying a word. Whatever it is, the Doctor is most at home when faced with the distinctly odd. With the help of Fetch Brothers' Junior Receptionist Bryony, he'll get to the bottom of things. Just so long as he does so in time to save Bryony from quite literally losing her mind, and the entire world from destruction. Because something huge, ancient and alien lies hidden beneath the ground – and it's starting to wake up.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Clare Corbett.

A game of canasta turns out crooked and a golden girl ends up dead. It seems that Auric Goldfinger is a bad loser when it comes to cards. He’s also the world’s most ruthless and successful gold smuggler. As James Bond follows his trail, he discovers that Goldfinger’s real game is the heist of fifteen billion dollars of US government bullion. The final hand is played at Fort Knox, in a spectacular display of deception and intrigue. Includes an exclusive bonus interview with Hugh Bonneville. Ian Fleming was born in London in 1908. He was educated at Eton and worked as a journalist in Moscow and a banker and stockbroker in London before becoming personal assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence during the Second World War. He wrote his first Bond novel, Casino Royale, in 1952 at Goldeneye, his home in Jamaica. Since then James Bond has gone on to become a global phenomenon. Hugh Bonneville is perhaps best known for his role as Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham in the hit series Downton Abbey. Other TV credits include W1A, Twenty Twelve, Lost in Austen, Bonekickers, The Silence and Rev. On the big screen he’s been seen in Monuments Men, Iris, Notting Hill, and the James Bond movie, Tomorrow Never Dies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hugh Bonneville.

Everything You Need to Know About Atlas Shrugge...
9,95 € *

Learn everything you need to know about Atlas Shrugged, quickly! This audiobook includes a discussion of the plot, characters, main themes, and political philosophy of Ayn Rand. In 2009, with the global economy hemorrhaging jobs and Western governments using hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money to "bail out" troubled financial firms and large companies, frustrated people and political analysts turned to a book written over 50 years earlier as a guide out of the abyss. Though Atlas Shrugged had been a popular title when Ayn Rand published it in 1957, it's quite possible that the only reference to it that many Americans heard before 2009 came from the hit TV series Mad Men. However, this staple of conservative and libertarian readers took on new life as the new Obama Administration sought to use government resources to fix financial problems. Conservative commentators like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh praised the book to their audiences, and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas labeled it one of his favorite novels. By January 2009, one article in The Wall Street Journal was titled, "Atlas Shrugged from Fiction to Fact in 52 Years". In that time, the giant novel that Rand considered her magnum opus has seen its sales spike dramatically, eventually reaching the top of Amazon's best sellers list. Even today, it is still within Kindle's top 500 titles, making it one of the most heavily read books of the last several years. Today, many have heard of the title and are partially familiar with it, but the sheer size of the book makes it inaccessible for people who don't have a lot of time to read or ponder Rand's philosophy. Thankfully, that problem is now solved with Everything You Need to Know About Atlas Shrugged, a primer that can get anyone caught up to speed on the plot, characters, themes, symbols, and philosophy of Rand's classic 1.
