Jordan Belforts Lebensbericht hört sich an wie ein Film: Aus kleinen Verhältnissen stammend wurde er mit 26 zum Multimillionär an der Wall Street, um mit 36 alles zu verlieren und wegen Betrugs und Geldwäsche zu einer mehrjährigen Haftstrafe verurteilt zu werden. Nach eigener Aussage nahm Belfort an einem Tag genug Drogen, um ganz Guatemala ruhig zu stellen. Als seine Geldgeschäfte ihm nicht mehr den nötigen Kick gaben, versuchte der "echte" Gordon Gekko es mit schnellen Autos, Frauen und Helikoptern. Seine Parties waren legendär. Sein tiefer Fall schliesslich rettete ihm das Leben. Der Wolf der Wall Street erzählt seine Geschichte. Zuhören lohnt sich!

Jay Mackintosh is trapped by memory in the old familiar landscape of his childhood, to which he longs to return. A bottle of home-brewed wine left to him by a long-vanished friend seems to provide the key to an old mystery. As the unusual properties of the strange brew take effect, Jay escapes to a derelict farmhouse in the French village of Lansquenet. There, a ghost from the past waits to confront him, and the reclusive Marise - haunted, lovely and dangerous - hides a terrible secret behind her closed shutters. Between them, a mysterious chemistry. Or could it be magic?

The life of a great musician is always interesting, but the story of Hazel Harrison is exceptional. Her achievement was particularly impressive because she had been schooled entirely at home and was the first black pianist, male or female, to perform with a major European orchestra. Harrison's extraordinarily long and impressive performing career spanned more than half a century, from the days when Brahms was still alive and Stravinsky had not yet composed The Rite of Spring to the time of the civil rights struggle in the deep South.
