2 I'll Never Write My Memoirs - Grace Jones
Auteur : Grace Jones
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
Iconic music and film legend Grace Jones gives an in-depth account of her stellar career, professional and personal life, and the signature look that catapulted her into the stardom stratosphere.

Quickly discovered for her obvious talent and cutting-edge style, Grace signed her first record deal in 1977 and became one of the more unforgettable characters to emerge from the Studio 54 disco scene, releasing the all-time favorite hits, “Pull Up to the Bumper,” “Slave to the Rhythm,” and “I’m Not Perfect (But I’m Perfect for You).” And with her sexually charged, outrageous live shows in the New York City nightclub circuit, Grace soon earned the title of “Queen of the Gay Discos.”<

6 Agatha Christie's True Crime Inspirations - Mike Holgate
Auteur : Mike Holgate
Genre : Histoire
Fact proves far stranger than fiction in this collection of real-life crimes, scandals, tragedies and murders which either influenced the works of the world's most popular mystery writer or affected the lives of many famous personalities involved in her long and brilliant career.

9 Agatha Christie's Golden Age - John Goddard
Auteur : John Goddard
Genre : Critique littéraire
This book provides the first comprehensive definition of the puzzle elements in Agatha Christie’s novels, proposing the idea that murder stories can be deconstructed into three puzzle elements – Solution, Plot and Clues. It then analyses how well those puzzle elements work in the 21 novels of her principal detective, Hercule Poirot, published during what can fairly be regarded as the Golden Age of detective fiction (1918 – 1945). The analysis therefore covers Poirot’s most famous novels such as The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Murder on the Orient Express, The ABC Murders and Death on the Nile.

As Dr John Curran, the leading Agatha Christie expert, says in his Introduction, the book provides an accessible way for readers – not just Christie scholars but her general readership – to understand how the novels work as puzzles. And, as Scott Baker, the leading Christie memo

12 Agatha Christie’s Marple - Anne Hart
Auteur : Anne Hart
Genre : Policier et suspense
This is the definitive companion to the MISS MARPLE novels, films and TV appearances.

‘I have had a lot of experience in solving different little problems that have arisen.’

Most of the ‘little problems’ tackled by Miss Marple occurred in the pretty rural village of St Mary Mead and came in the shape of murder, robbery and blackmail. In the 40 years of her career, she even solved cases as far afield as London and the Caribbean. But though she usually masqueraded as ‘everybody’s favourite great aunt’, what was she 'really' like?

In this authorised biography of the world’s most famous female sleuth, Anne Hart combs through the 12 novels and 20 short stories in which Miss Marple appeared, uncovering clue and amassing all the evidence to solve the most difficult case of them all – the mystery of Miss Marple.

17 Agatha Christie’s Murder in the Making - John Curran
Auteur : John Curran
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
Agatha Christie’s life and career told through the decades, from the never-before-published original ending to her first book to the unused ideas for her last, complete with two unpublished Agatha Christie stories - including a lost Miss Marple.

In this follow-up volume to the acclaimed Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks, Christie archivist and expert John Curran leads the reader through the six decades of Agatha Christie's writing career, unearthing some remarkable clues to her success and a number of never-before-published excerpts and stories from her archives.

Starting his investigation in the 1920s, John Curran examines the conventions of detective novels as they existed then and how Agatha Christie's publisher talked her into changing the ending of her very first book, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, a move that almost certainly changed the fortunes of not

18 A Tale of Two Christies - Richard Muti
Auteur : Richard Muti
Genre : Politique et actualité
"A Tale of Two Christies" is a collection of essays about Gov. Chris Christie and New Jersey politics, the national political scene, unnecessary wars and wrongheaded government, rare displays of political courage, not-so-rare displays of political cowardice, public employee unions, and other public policy issues that challenge state and federal government. No politician, regardless of political party, or government policy is safe from the author's scrutiny, but those mired in the usual hypocrisy of the public arena are particular targets: Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, the National Rifle Association and the Tea Party get special attention, but so do liberals beholden to special interest groups on the Left.

Auteur : Anne Hart
Genre : Policier et suspense
The definitive companion to the POIROT novels, films and TV appearances.

‘My name is Hercule Poirot and I am probably the greatest detective in the world.'

The dapper, moustache-twirling little Belgian with the egg-shaped head, curious mannerisms and inordinate respect for his own 'little grey cells' has solved some of the most puzzling crimes of the century. Yet despite being familiar to millions, Poirot himself has remained an enigma – until now.

From his first appearance in 1920 to his last in 1975, from country-house drawing-rooms to opium dens in Limehouse, from Mayfair to the Mediterranean, Anne Hart stalks the legendary sleuth, unveiling the mysteries that surround him. Sifting through 33 novels and 56 short stories, she examines his origins, tastes, relationships and peculiarities, revealing a character as fascinating as the books themselves.<

21 Agatha Christie’s Secret Notebooks - John Curran
Auteur : John Curran
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
A fascinating exploration of the contents of Agatha Christie’s 73 recently discovered notebooks, including illustrations, deleted extracts, and two unpublished Poirot stories.

When Agatha Christie died in 1976, aged 85, she had become the world's most popular author. With sales of more than two billion copies worldwide in more than 100 countries, she had achieved the impossible - more than one book every year since the 1920s, every one a bestseller.

So prolific was Agatha Christie's output - 66 crime novels, 20 plays, 6 romance books under a pseudonym and over 150 short stories - it was often claimed that she had a photographic memory. Was this true? Or did she resort over those 55 years to more mundane methods of working out her ingenious crimes?

Following the death of Agatha's daughter, Rosalind, at the end of 2004, a remarkable secret was revealed. U

Hast du es schon gehört Geheimnisse üben naturgemäß einen hohen Reiz auf uns aus, Dinge, die nicht für unsere Ohren bestimmt sind, wecken das Interesse umso mehr. Wie im Alltag des wahren Lebens, so ist Klatsch und Tratsch, ist das Reden über intime Affären anderer, auch in der Literatur ein beliebtes Thema, eignet es sich doch derart vortrefflich, um dem Leser das Gefühl zu geben, einen Einblick in die privatesten Angelegenheiten von Fremden erhalten zu können. [...] Agatha Christies Figur der alten, schrulligen Detektivin Miss Marple, stellt aufgrund ihrer spezifischen Ermittlungstechniken und Charaktereigenschaften für die Klatsch-Forschung einen besonders interessanten Ansatzpunkt dar, sie bildet sozusagen eine Synthese zwischen unterhaltsamer Detektiv- und Klatschliteratur, gilt sie doch als Inbegriff einer verschrobenen Klatschbase.

27 Memorials of CHRISTIE’S - William Roberts
Auteur : William Roberts

“The chief difficulty experienced in the compilation of these “ Memorials of Christie’s ” has been, not the lack of material, but the wealth of it. To compress into two volumes the essence of many thousands of catalogues has been a task of no little difficulty, and I do not pretend to claim that every “lot” of importance is to be found mentioned within these covers. To compile a complete record of the sales at Christie’s would require a lifetime of constant application, and a long series of volumes dealing with each of the many special objects which come under the hammer at Messrs. Christie, Manson and Woods’. Such a work would be of the greatest possible value, and in many respects of very considerable interest, but it naturally could not be undertaken by one upon whose time the daily press makes large demands. In the preparation of this work, I have gone through all the

In 2017, Leonardo da Vinci’s small oil painting, the Salvator Mundi was sold at auction for $450m. In the words of its discoverer, the image of Christ as saviour of the world is ‘the rarest thing on the planet by the greatest human being who ever lived’. Its dazzling price also makes it the world’s most expensive painting.

For two centuries art dealers had searched in vain for the Holy Grail of art history: a portrait of Christ as the Salvator Mundi by Leonardo da Vinci. Many similar paintings of greatly varying quality had been executed by Leonardo’s assistants in the first half of the sixteenth cent

34 Irre klar und doch klar geirrt - Ines Sundermann
Auteur : Ines Sundermann
Genre : Nature
Lange Zeit hing klassischer Detektivliteratur der Ruf wissenschaftlich anspruchsloser Trivialliteratur an. Ihr Thema und die enorme Popularität standen, so die allgemeine Auffassung, im Gegensatz zu literarischem Anspruch. Was kann an einer so erfolgreichen Gattung Gutes sein Und was kann sie wissenschaftlicher Aufmerksamkeit empfehlen (Alewyn 1998, 52), fragte man sich. Natürlich ist diese Voreingenommenheit heutzutage lange überholt (vgl. Dunker 1991, 10) und viele Aspekte, besonders struktureller und historischer Art, wurden bis dato abermals und ausführlich behandelt (ebd., 16). Im Zentrum der vorliegenden Arbeit steht die Frage nach den Techniken und Strategien der Irreführung des Lesers in der Detektivliteratur des Golden Age. Angesichts des eindeutigen Rätselcharakters einer Geschichte dieses Typus (s. Kap. 2) wäre zu erwarten, dass dieser Aspekt mindestens genauso interess

Alfred Taubman may not have invented the modern shopping center but, in the words of The New Yorker, "he perfected it."
