    Ondskaben kender ingen grænser.Den erfarne privatopdager Ravn får sin mest uhyggelige sag til dato, da en klient beder ham finde en gammel skolekammerat, som han ikke har haft kontakt med i 17 år. En række bestialske overfald på kvinder, der ryster København har givet klienten mistanke om, at hans skolekammerat står bag, fordi overfaldene minder om det, som han og kammeraten begik på en lille pige tilbage i 1993, og som endte fatalt. Af frygt for hævnangreb mod drengene har de siden deres frigivelse levet under politiets vidnebeskyttelsesprogram med nye hemmelige identiteter og er derfor umulige at opspore. Da endnu en kvinde bliver overfaldet og denne gang dræbt, efterforsker Ravn sagen og indleder jagten på den anonyme morder. En gerningsmand der kan være hvem som helst, og slå til hvornår det skal være. Og spørgsmålet melder sig hurtigt for Ravn, om han kender sin klients virkelige identitet og hans motiver?Dybet er fjerde selvstændige bog i Michael Katz Krefelds populære serie om privatopdageren Ravn, der bor på sin båd i Christianshavns kanal sammen med sin engelske bulldog Møffe. Serien udkommer i 20 lande.

    Mange danskere kender Carolyne som komikeren Melvin Kakoozas mor. I denne bog fortæller hun sin egen historie om at flygte til Danmark som 21-årig med to små børn og bygge et nyt liv op. Det er en barsk, men også humoristisk fortælling om mødet med en fremmed kultur, hvor mange ting er anderledes, mens noget er meget genkendeligt - som f.eks. den danske humor, der kommer til at spille en stor rolle for Carolyne og hendes families integration.Carolyne er født i Uganda under Idi Amin-tiden og måtte flygte med sin familie til Kenya, hvor hun er vokset op. Hun bliver forelsket i en politiker, som må flygte ud af landet og kommer til Danmark, hvor han får politisk asyl. Da Carolyne et år senere følger efter ham, finder hun sin mand nedbrudt og syg af flugten og af tabet af sin identitet. Men Carolyne er fast besluttet på at slå rødder her med sin familie og lære den danske kultur at kende. Hun melder sig som besøgsven for Røde Kors og bliver social- og sundhedshjælper. Da ægteskabet senere ender i skilsmisse, må Carolyne starte forfra med sine nu fire børn. Hun bliver sygeplejerske og videreuddaner sig med bl.a. en kandidatgrad i sygeplejevidenskab fra Aarhus Universitet.

    119,95 - 297,95 kr.

    Danmarkshistorien er fuld af fortællinger om store mænd og deres begivenheder. Men den er knap så fuld af de store kvinder, deres kampe, deres bedrifter, trængsler, ofre, sejre og nederlag.Men de findes, kvinderne, der kæmpede for bedre vilkår, stemmeret, ligestilling, indflydel- se; kvinder, der kæmpede for at blive hørt, at vise, hvem de var og hvad de kunne.De fleste kvinder portrætteret i denne bog klarede sig, om end med ryggen mod muren. Hvis den ene skulder brækkede, bar de på den anden. De offergjorde ikke sig selv, når det ikke lykkedes for dem. Eller når de lykkedes med noget helt andet, end de havde forventet.Deres udgangspunkt var kønsbestemt. Op gennem århundrederne forsøgte de at sætte de- res præg på institutioner, tankegang, politik. Man kan spejle sig i dem, og måske undre sig. Hvorfra fik de styrken og modet? Er de forbilleder eller uopnåelige? Hvad var de oppe imod?Den allerfarligste barriere for kvinder er troen på, at kvinder er ens. Alle kvinder. At man kan slutte fra sin egen kone (eller mor), hvordan alle andre kvinder tænker og fungerer i enhver situation. Stereotypiseringen lægger gift ud.Men her er så en række portrætter, der viser kvinderne råt for usødet, så man selv kan se, at de først og fremmest var personer, der bare med fuld ret og rimelighed havde brug for at få samme muligheder, samme rettigheder og samme pligter, som den anden halvdel af samfundet.Og de fleste gjorde en forskel og forandrede deres samtid og deres eftertid.LEKTØRUDTALELSE"Maria Helleberg har her skrevet en bog, der kan bruges med forskellige mål for øje. Bogen kan bruges som et opslagsværk, hvori der kan findes oplysninger om en lang række danske kvinder, eller bogen kan læses som en rejse op igennem danmarkshistorien fortalt med kvinderne i centrum.... der har været med at skabe det land og det samfund med rettigheder og goder, som vi alle uanset køn nyder godt af i dag."- Lektør: Rikke Bruun Bogen indeholder portrætter af Dronning Dagmar, Margrethe I, Mor Sigbrit, Ellen Marsvin, Leonora Christine, Juliane Marie, Charlotte Dorothea Biehl, Charlotte Schimmelmann, Thomasine Gyllembourg, Madam Man- gor, Johanne Luise Heiberg, Nathalie Zahle, Mathilde Fibiger, Mathilde Bajer, Emma Gad, Anna Ancher, Nina Bang, Agnes Henningsen, Andrea Brochmann, Betty Nansen, Thit Jensen, Asta Nielsen, Lis Jacobsen, Karen Blixen, Bodil Koch, Inger Merete Nordentoft, Lis Groes, Lise Nørgaard, Tove Ditlevsen, rødstrømperne, Elsa Gress, forretningskvinderne, Margrethe II, plattedamerne, Ritt Bjerregaard, Jytte Abildstrøm, Pia Kjærsgaard, Mimi Jakobsen, Helle Thorning-Schmidt og Anja Andersen.

    "Brilliant, elegant, and unsparing." —Emma Cline“[S]tarkly beautiful.” — WBUR“Enchanting.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)An intoxicating, compact debut novel by the winner of Columbia’s Henfield Prize, Tides is an astoundingly powerful portrait of a deeply unpredictable woman who walks out of her life and washes up in a seaside town.After a sudden, devastating loss, Mara flees her family and ends up adrift in a wealthy seaside town with a dead cellphone and barely any money. Mired in her grief, Mara detaches from the outside world and spends her days of self-imposed exile scrounging for food and swimming in the night ocean. In her state of emotional extremis, the sea at the town's edge is rendered bleak, luminous, implacable.As her money runs out and tourist season comes to a close, Mara finds a job at the local wine store. There, she meets Simon, the shop's soft-spoken, lonely owner. Confronted with the possibility of connection with Simon and the slow return of her desires and appetites, the reasons for her flight begin to emerge.Reminiscent of works by Rachel Cusk, Jenny Offill, and Marguerite Duras, Tides is a spare, visceral debut novel about the nature of selfhood, intimacy, and the private narratives that shape our lives. A shattering and unforgettable debut.

  • af Susan Isaacs
    197,95 - 297,95 kr.

    New York Times bestselling author Susan Isaacs returns to a pair of her readers’ favorite characters, former FBI agent Corie Geller and her retired cop dad, who must solve one of the NYPD’s coldest homicide cases—before the crime’s sole survivor is killed.When Corie Geller asked her parents to move from their apartment into the suburban McMansion she shares with her husband and teenage daughter, she assumed they'd fit right in with the placid life she’d opted for when she left the Joint Anti-terrorism Task Force of the FBI.But then her retired NYPD detective father gets a call from good-natured and slightly nerdy film professor April Brown—one of the victims of a case he was never able to solve. When April was a five-year-old, she’d emerged unscathed from the arson that killed her parents. Now, two decades later, April is asking for help. Someone has made an attempt on her life. It takes only a nanosecond for Corie and her dad to say yes, and they jump into a full-fledged investigation.If they don’t move fast, whoever attacked April is sure to strike again. But while her late father, Seymour Brown, was the go-to money launderer for the Russian mob – a mercurial and violent man with a penchant for Swiss watches and cheating on his wife – April Brown has no enemies. Well-liked by her students, admired by her colleagues, her only connection to crime is her passion for the noir movies of Hollywood’s golden age. Who would want her dead now? And who set that horrific fire, all those years ago?The stakes have never been higher. Yet as Corie and her dad are realizing, they still live for the chase. Savvy and surprising, witty and gripping, Bad, Bad Seymour Brown is another standout hit from the beloved Susan Isaacs.

    The stunning, gender-flipped novel about love, creativity and the power of speaking out - perfect for fans of Madeline Miller and Pat Barker.'Poetic and evocative ... this story will thrill readers' PIP WILLIAMS, bestselling author of The Dictionary of Lost Words Their love transcends every boundary. Can it cheat death?Orphia dreams of something more than the warrior crafts she's been forced to learn. Hidden away on a far-flung island, her blood sings with poetry and her words can move flowers to bloom and forests to grow ... but her father, the sun god Apollo, has forbidden her this art.A chance meeting with a young shield-maker, Eurydicius, gives her the courage to use her voice. After wielding all her gifts to defeat one final champion, Orphia draws the scrutiny of the gods. Performing her poetry, she wins the protection of the goddesses of the arts: the powerful Muses, who welcome her to their sanctuary on Mount Parnassus. Orphia learns to hone her talents, crafting words of magic infused with history, love and tragedy.When Eurydicius joins her, Orphia struggles with her desire for fame and her budding love. As her bond with the gentle shield-maker grows, she joins the Argonauts on their quest for the Golden Fleece. Facing dragons, sirens and ruthless warriors on the voyage, Orphia earns unparalleled fame, but she longs to return to Eurydicius.Yet she has a darker journey to make - one which will see her fight for her love with all the power of her poetry.Praise for Orphia and Eurydicius'As I read, I imagined the muses beside Elyse John, focusing her mind and guiding her hand. The writing is poetic and evocative, and the story will thrill readers who have long suspected something is missing from the classics of Greek myth.' PIP WILLIAMS, author of The Dictionary of Lost Words and The Bookbinder of Jericho'Spins a bewitching tale of courage, love, and defiance, giving voice and agency to the women in Greek tales who are so often defined by the men they are associated with. Orphia's poetry may bring the gods to tears; John's words have the same effect on us mere mortals. Tragic and triumphant, a must-read!' ANDREA STEWART, author of The Bone Shard Daughter'Elyse John's deft language lays bare the exquisite intimacies of human connection, from the brutal - yet seductive - exercise of power over another, to the moments of tenderness and vulnerability between lovers.' SHELLEY PARKER-CHAN, author of She Who Became the Sun'Elyse John's Orphia and Eurydicius stunning retelling deftly explores Orphia's beginnings, her poetic ambitions, and her searing chemistry with Eurydicius, all of which challenge the gender dynamics of the time and death itself. A highly original read.' STACEY THOMAS, author of The Revels'Bold yet beautiful ... I was glued to the page, compelled by the story of Lady Orphia and her love, the gentle shieldmaker Eurydicius. Orphia and Eurydicius is a thoughtful consideration as to what it means to be a man, a woman, a hero, a human being. I loved this retelling and couldn't stop thinking about it: Lady Orphia has my heart.' LAURA SHEPPERSON, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Heroines (UK), Phaedra (US)'A cleverly conceived and lyrically crafted reimagining. John deftly weaves a compelling and insightful narrative that interrogates not only patriarchy but the gendered dynamics of love, romance and the role of artist and muse. It is a story about the importance of having a voice, and a delightful subversion of myth' BEA FITZGERALD, Sunday Times bestselling author of Girl, Goddess, Queen'I found myself crying at the power of Elyse John's glittering, lyrical prose and the relationship at the heart of the novel. This is an excellent example of the power of mythological retellings as the novel makes us re-examine gender, heteronormativity and what makes a hero. I fell head over heels for this warrior-poet and gentle shieldmaker' RANI SELVARAJAH, author of Savage Beasts'Orphia and Eurydicius is a Greek retelling which stands out in an age of reiterations. The language is lyrical, the plot, enchanting. John is a writer who has clearly done the work, one whose courage aligns with her brave, protagonists, outliers in their own right. I find myself enamoured of both artist and novel; the tender yearning, the fierce desire, the sorrow and sacrifice. This book consumed three months of my life and yet, I want to give more. It will be hard to return to real life. (If I cannot have this type of love, I'd rather have none at all). Orphia and Eurydicius is worthy of the greats.' CHỊKỌDỊLỊ EMELỤMADỤ, author of Dazzling'A gorgeous, sweeping tale that both evokes the feeling of classic mythology and intelligent and modern insight, this is a story of the boundaries we put on love and grief - I dare you to be unmoved by it.' SAM HAWKE, author of City of Lies'A beautiful, poetic ode to Greek myth, love, and the sheer power of women's art and women's voices.' TASHA SURI, author of the Burning Kingdoms series'A powerful ode to female creativity and ambition, a poignant exploration of grief, and a testament to the power of art and love to transcend death. Lyrical, luminous, and brimming with passion.' H.G. PARRY, author of The Magician's Daughter'A fresh and enchanting retelling of the Orpheus myth, in which Ancient Greece's greatest poet becomes a bold, powerful woman, and her muse an artistic, gentle man. John astutely explores and tests the gendered stereotypes of classical myth and elevates women's voices and stories to craft a beautiful, beguiling modern myth about the value of creativity, the strength of non-conformity and the power of love.' NIKKI MARMERY, author of Lilith'Beautiful, beguiling and at times heartbreaking, Orphia and Eurydicius is a novel to be savoured and cherished. Rich in detail with characters that leap off the page, it kept me reading well into the night with my heart in my mouth. John has created a world that is both visceral and sumptuous, with prose that is as razor-sharp as it is lyrical. Gripping, poetic and enthralling, this novel is a testament to Elyse John's astonishing talent. Fans of Greek mythology are in for a treat!' AWAIS KHAN, author of Someone Like Her'An absolutely beautiful book, both mythic and achingly human. Elyse John crafts an incisive yet graceful inversion of myth, told in deft and evocative prose.' ROWENNA MILLER, author of The Fairy Bargains of Prospect Hill'Distilling the essence of poetry and the meaning of honesty, Orphia and Eurydicius is sharp as a spear tip and precise as a lover's wound. A story to be re-read and luxuriated in, asserting strength in a woman's spirit, the need for expression, and the fight to stay true to oneself.' KRITIKA H. RAO, author of The Surviving Sky'A swoonworthy, breathtakingly exquisite, poignant masterpiece' BETTER READING'Like all enchanted books, the story of Elyse Johns' Orphia and Eurydicius is vivid, consuming, potent, and poetic. This gender-flipping, feminist retelling is not just a love story for the ages, but a moving, magical ode to the power of using our voices, and of being who we are in the world.' HOLLY RINGLAND, author of The Seven Skins of Esther Wilding'This book hooked me from its opening lines ... Music and poetry, art and magic are woven together in this dazzling fable which ultimately asks: how far are we willing to go for the ones we love? Elyse John has taken one of the most beautiful and tragic love stories ever told and infused it with a modern sensibility. Readers will swoon.' LAUREN CHATER, author of The Winter Dress'A timeless story told in rich, poetic language ... a book for lovers of myth, passion and transporting historical fiction. John brilliantly reimagines the past while crafting a moving tale of love that challenges outdated gender roles, and of grief drawn from the depths of experience. The mesmerising landscapes, the journeys of sea and fire, encircle this very human story in the evocative realm of legend.' KATHERINE BRABON, author of The Shut Ins'Highly polished and luminous ... A wonderfully ambitious, richly imagined tale of star-crossed lovers. Brimming with passion, wit and poetry Orphia and Eurydicius is a story of, and for, the ages. One that not only stands as a paeon to love, courage and acceptance but to every woman's desire, and right, to be heard. A triumph.' LYN HUGHES, author of Mr Carver's Whale'A delectable concoction at once ancient and modern, comfortingly familiar and yet very much her own ... A thrilling tale of epic love and epic ambition spun with a Homeric sense of adventure and storytelling flair. It's also a hymn to the pleasures of sensuality, nature and creativity, and to the courage of being yourself rather than the person others want you to be.' LEE KOFMAN, author of The Writer Laid Bare'Elyse John has written that rare novel, one that has heart and wisdom, adventure and poetry, and all the while it pulses with a great political purpose. It's a marvel.' NIGEL FEATHERSTONE, author of My Heart is a Little Wild Thing'An intoxicating story about a woman fighting to live a life of creativity and love, on her own terms. This is a powerful epic about the collective power of women set in the mythical past that feels incredibly relevant today. John's gilded romance about breaking boundaries to live and love is transportative.' STEPH VIZARD, winner of the 2022 HarperCollins Banjo Prize for The Love Contract
