Es ist ein Tag wie jeder andere im Leben des fünfjährigen Saroo: Auf dem Bahnhof einer indischen Kleinstadt sucht er nach Münzen und Essensresten. Schließlich schläft er vor Erschöpfung in einem wartenden Zug ein. Der fährt den kleinen Jungen ans andere Ende von Indien, nach Kalkutta. Völlig alleine an einem der gefährlichsten Orte der Welt schlägt er sich wochenlang auf der Straße durch, landet im Waisenhaus und gelangt so zu den Brierleys, die Saroo ein neues Zuhause in Australien schenken. Fünfundzwanzig Jahre später macht sich Saroo mit Hilfe von Google Earth auf die Suche nach seiner leiblichen Familie. Am Bildschirm fährt er Nacht für Nacht das Zugnetz von Indien ab. Das Unglaubliche passiert: Er findet ein Dorf, das dem Bild in seiner Erinnerung entspricht – und macht sich auf den Weg ...

*** NOW NOMINATED FOR SIX OSCARS, INCLUDING BEST PICTURE, SUPPORTING ACTOR AND SUPPORTING ACTRESS *** Lion is the heartbreaking and inspiring original true story of the lost little boy who found his way home twenty-five years later and is now a major film starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman and Rooney Mara. As a five-year old in India, I got lost on a train. Twenty-five years later, I crossed the world to find my way back home. Five-year-old Saroo lived in a poor village in India, in a one-room hut with his mother and three siblings... until the day he boarded a train alone and got lost. For twenty-five years. This is the story of what happened to Saroo in those twenty-five years. How he ended up on the streets of Calcutta. And survived. How he then ended up in Tasmania, living the life of an upper-middle-class Aussie. And how, at thirty years old, with some dogged determination, a heap of good luck and the power of Google Earth, he found his way back home. Lion is a triumphant true story of survival against all odds and a shining example of the extraordinary feats we can achieve when hope endures. 'Amazing stuff' The New York Post 'So incredible that sometimes it reads like a work of fiction' Winnipeg Free Press (Canada) 'A remarkable story' Sydney Morning Herald Review 'I literally could not put this book down. Saroo's return journey will leave you weeping with joy and the strength of the human spirit' Manly Daily (Australia) 'We urge you to step behind the headlines and have a read of this absorbing account...With clear recollections and good old-fashioned storytelling, Saroo...recalls the fear of being lost and the anguish of separation' Weekly Review (Australia)

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER They met over their dogs. Gail Caldwell and Caroline Knapp (author of Drinking: A Love Story) became best friends, talking about everything from their love of books and their shared history of a struggle with alcohol to their relationships with men. Walking the woods of New England and rowing on the Charles River, these two private, self-reliant women created an attachment more profound than either of them could ever have foreseen. Then, several years into this remarkable connection, Knapp was diagnosed with cancer. With her signature exquisite prose, Caldwell mines the deepest levels of devotion, and courage in this gorgeous memoir about treasuring a best friend, and coming of age in midlife. Let’s Take the Long Way Home is a celebration of the profound transformations that come from intimate connection—and it affirms, once again, why Gail Caldwell is recognized as one of our bravest and most honest literary voices.

"Southie was much more than a mere dot on a map; it was a state of mind." So begins McIntyre's remarkable memoir, The Long Way Home, an insightful book that chronicles his journey from the streets of South Boston to the cross. Through his eyes McIntyre paints a mental picture of real life in South Boston during the 1950's and 60's and again in the 1980's and 90's capturing all of Southie's strengths and foibles. He writes with brutal honesty of his decline from a straight A student attending Boston Latin School to a violence and alcohol addicted teenager and his loyalty to the "corner." McIntyre's marriage in the 60's posed a new problem. He had to choose between the "corner" and family. He chose family and moved to the suburbs, obtained his first real job with the Gillette Company and attended Northeastern University nights. After 25 years in the corporate world, McIntyre returned to South Boston in 1985 to partner in the ill-fated purchase of a liquor store from Whitey Bulger. Twenty tough, tenuous years followed filled with Grand Jury appearances, a raid on the liquor store by the DEA, and ongoing investigations by the IRS as well as by the Boston Police and the Massachusetts State Police. The relentless media attention tracked each turn resulting in a civil suit, bankruptcy and much more. During this arduous time, McIntyre knew Bulger personally, therefore the book depicts Whitey Bulger in a slightly different light because their relationship wasn't dependent on crime. In a surprising twist, even to McIntyre, he was "born again" at sixty years old in a spiritual experience that resolved much of life's early anguish and renewed his hope. The last three chapters relate how God works in his life with continual blessings and how God redeemed his poor life choices with a new purpose in life.

The province's premier journalist tells the story he was born to write. No journalist has travelled the back roads, hidden vales and fog-soaked coves of Nova Scotia as widely as John DeMont. No writer has spent as much time considering its peculiar warp and weft of humanity, geography and history. The Long Way Home is the summation of DeMont's years of travel, research and thought. It tells the story of what is, from the European view of things, the oldest part of Canada. Before Confederation it was also the richest, but now Nova Scotia is among the poorest. Its defining myths and stories are mostly about loss and sheer determination. Equal parts narrative, memoir and meditation, The Long Way Home chronicles with enthralling clarity a complex and multi-dimensional story: the overwhelming of the first peoples and the arrival of a mélange of pioneers who carved out pockets of the wilderness; the random acts and unexplained mysteries; the shameful achievements and noble failures; the rapture and misery; the twists of destiny and the cold-heartedness of fate. This is the biography of a place that has been hardened by history. A place full of reminders of how great a province it has been and how great—with the right circumstances and a little luck—it could be again.

'Australia's own Frank McCourt!' Sally Loane, ABC Radio This is an important story that has long been neglected. We are familiar with stories of the stolen generation and the British child migrants, but there is a third group about whom very little has been written: their white Australian contemporaries who as a result of family breakdown, court orders or abandonment were institutionalised as children. Kate Shayler (pseudonym) grew up a 'homes kid' in the fifties and sixties. Her memoir is more than just an account of her experience as an institutionalised white kid: it's a heartbreaking story of what happens to a child in the absence of emotional support and affection. Far from being a litany of despair, Kate manages to weave into her journey of self-discovery a sense of community, camraderie, and humour of a childhood of sorts - a 'family' that she was forced to create for herself. The Long Way Home: The Story of a Homes Kid will strike a chord with anyone who has ever suffered discrimination, insecurity or the pain of separation from family. It's a timely and profound reminder that every child deserves to be cherished and valued.

Die Memoiren eines Jahrhundertautors Was macht das Leben eines Schriftstellers aus? Mit dem Welterfolg Der Spion, der aus der Kälte kam gab es für John le Carré keinen Weg zurück. Er kündigte seine Stelle im diplomatischen Dienst, reiste zu Recherchezwecken um den halben Erdball – Afrika, Russland, Israel, USA, Deutschland –, traf die Mächtigen aus Politik- und Zeitgeschehen und ihre heimlichen Handlanger. John le Carré ist bis heute ein exzellenter und unabhängiger Beobachter, mit untrüglichem Gespür für Macht und Verrat. Aber auch für die komischen Seiten des weltpolitischen Spiels. In seinen Memoiren blickt er zurück auf sein Leben und sein Schreiben. »Mitreißend, unterhaltsam und spannend wie einen Thriller erzählt le Carré in Der Taubentunnel sein Leben.« Buchjournal „Le Carré ist ein so lebenskluges Buch gelungen, dass man seine zahlreichen Aphorismen am liebsten auswendig lernen möchte.“ Frank Herold, Berliner Zeitung Zu unserer Autorenseite: www.ullstein.de/lecarre

Selten zuvor hat ein Bühnenkünstler seine eigene Geschichte mit solch einer Kraft und solch einem lodernden Feuer niedergeschrieben. Wie viele seiner Songs (“Thunder Road”, “Badlands”, “Darkness on the Edge of Town", “The River”, “Born in the U.S.A.", “The Rising" oder “The Ghost of Tom Joad”, um ein paar wenige zu erwähnen) ist Bruce Springsteens Autobiografie geprägt von der Lyrik eines einzigartigen Songwriters und der Weisheit eines Mannes, der ausgiebig über sein Leben nachgedacht hat.
