The fountain’s evolution was also closely tied to trends in retailing, food service, lifestyles, and the decorative arts.

View: 4091Natalia arbeitet in einem Waisenhaus irgendwo in Südosteuropa, als sie vom rätselhaften Tod ihres geliebten Großvaters erfährt. Nach Erklärungen suchend, erinnert sich die junge Ärztin an jene Geschichten aus seinem Leben, die sich um zwei seltsame, fatale Gestalten drehen – die Tigerfrau, eine schöne Taubstumme in seinem Heimatdorf, die einen geflüchteten Tiger pflegte; und einen charmanten, obskuren Mann, der nicht sterben kann. Während Natalia auf den Spuren des Großvaters durch idyllische und kriegsverwüstete Landschaften reist, werden ihr diese Figuren immer gegenwärtiger. Bald entspinnt sich ein ganzer Kosmos an Mythen und Gestalten, und Natalia begreift, welche Wahrheit über die Lebensrätsel ihrer Familie und ihre versehrte Heimat in ihnen steckt ... Sprachgewaltig, mit unvergesslichen Figuren und einer erzählerischen Virtuosität, die an Gabriel García Márquez erinnert, entwirft Téa Obreht das schmerzlich-schöne Bild einer zwischen gestern und heute gefangenen, mythengläubigen Welt. «Time» schrieb über «Die Tigerfrau»: «Liebe, Legende und Tod werden hier so wundervoll geschildert, dass jeder andere Roman in diesem Jahr Gefahr läuft, an der unheimlichen Schönheit dieses Buches gemessen zu werden. Seit Zadie Smith debütierte kein junger Autor mit solcher Kraft und Eleganz.»

View: 4011Holidays with Sundae: Conversations with My Cat invites you to experience the delight of conversations with a cat. Pet owners understand that their furry companions have the power of communication, but Sundae actually speaks with her "owner". Through the conversations between Sundae and James, this cat becomes as real a character as any person we know. As a thinker and critic of the human condition, Sundae's feline perspective might surprise you. Sundae becomes a mirror in which we can examine ourselves. James T. Baker brings us into the conversation with Sundae using holidays as the springboard for their dialogue. Each holiday, thoroughly familiar to all of us, is introduced in a completely different perspective as Sundae questions why humans participate in such activities. Sundae leaves us to wonder why we did not already think of each holiday in the fresh-eyed and reverent way a cat might view our festive and reflective times. On April Fool's Day, for example, James plays a horrid prank on his companion by telling Sundae there is no more cat food in the house. Sundae decides she will positively die with hunger should she go a few hours without her food bowl full. As James reveals his prank on the unsuspecting cat, Sundae quickly turns the tables on her "owner" by pulling off an April Fool's joke of her own. Needless to say, cat "owners" will instantly identify with Sundae's particular wit and wisdom as her and James converse throughout the year. Pet owners have long known that our animals are as much a part of our family as any human members. Holidays with Sundae: Conversations with My Cat will remind you of that seemingly simple concept should you have ever forgotten.
