One twilight, Glenn Orgias was surfing at Bondi Beach when the worst happened: he was attacked by a shark, a 'man in a grey suit', as surfers call them. Although it suddenly released him, Glenn still thought his life was over he was 80 metres from shore with one almost severed arm, losing blood and strength fast, and the great white shark was somewhere below. All he could think about was his wife, Lisa, who was four months pregnant. Man in a Grey Suit is a powerful memoir about overcoming life's obstacles, large and small. It's the story of how surfing helped Glenn find some release from the anger and anxiety he felt growing up, and how something that so nearly killed him actually helped turn his life around. This is a brave, honest and moving account of how an ordinary man dealt with an extraordinary event. 'He frankly and fiercely taps into Australians' deepest fear.' Robert Drewe 'Sometimes we all wonder if we could cope with the worst that life could throw at us. Glenn Orgias has been there, and has come through. His strength of character lies not in what he lost, but in what he's always had.' Malcolm Knox 'In crisp, punchy prose, he shows us why his life is fuller now than before.' Fiona Capp, The Age 'This moving and utterly gripping true story is a testament to the bravery and guts that human beings can display when truly pushed to the brink.' Herald Sun

Jung-Stilling was a mystic and Christian visionary, and member of the German Pietist Brethren. He personally experienced the terrors and tragedies of war after the invasion of Germany by France in 1792, and the effects of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution on religion, morality and life in his homeland. Jung believed that Jesus Christ would come in the year 1836, convinced that the events of Europe during this era were the signs of the end of the age. Jung developed a plan to evangelize and prepare Germany for the return of Jesus Christ, which he expounds in this book. Menace Eastern-Light, the Man in the Grey Suit, written 1795-1800, is a compilation of the mystical and evangelical concepts of Jung. This translation makes available to the English-reading public the valuable ideas and concepts of this unique and famous German mystic and Christian visionary. The person of Menace Eastern-Light is the alter-ego of Jung. Menace was originally the main character in Jungs book Homesickness, and who always wore grey clothing. Even though Jung is a character in his own book, his is distinct from Menace, and Jung becomes the recorder of the thoughts and opinions of Menace. As alter-ego of Jung, Menace considers himself a demi-god, an angelic entity who descended from heaven and became incarnated; he is commissioned to rectify the corruption of the Christian religion in Germany and to prepare the people for the arrival of Christ in 1836. The translator is Daniel H. Shubin, who has previously translated 5 books into English dealing with Christianity in Russian and Europe; and is the author of 2 books on the Bible and one on Christian pacifism.

Der amerikanische Klassiker in neuer Übersetzung Tom und Betsy Rath sind ein junges Paar, sie haben drei gesunde Kinder, ein schönes Zuhause in einem netten Vorort von New York und ein regelmäßiges, wenn auch nicht üppiges Einkommen. Eigentlich haben sie allen Grund, glücklich zu sein. Doch irgendwie sind sie es nicht. Tom pendelt Tag für Tag in die Stadt, wo er einem unspektakulären Bürojob nachgeht – seit er aus dem Krieg zurückgekehrt ist, hat er sich ohnehin verändert, ist verschlossen und launisch. Betsy fühlt sich unverstanden. Nach einem Karriereschritt hat Tom bald keine Zeit mehr für sein Privatleben. Ist es das, was Tom wirklich will? Als er auf einen alten Kameraden aus dem Krieg trifft, gerät sein Alltag vollends aus den Fugen, Tom muss sich seiner Vergangenheit stellen und eine Entscheidung treffen, die sein Leben grundsätzlich verändern wird. ›Der Mann im grauen Flanell‹, im Original 1955 veröffentlicht und sofort ein Bestseller, vermittelt wie wenige andere Romane den Geist der fünfziger Jahre. Zu Recht gilt er als moderner Klassiker und verdient es, zusammen mit den Werken von Richard Yates, John Cheever und Raymond Carver genannt zu werden. Der Buchtitel war so treffend, dass er im Englischen zu einem feststehenden Begriff wurde. Nun liegt der Roman in einer zeitgemäßen deutschen Übersetzung vor.

But then the gallery is raided the day before the opening, and the photos seized with surprising violence. It soon becomes clear that someone, somewhere, wants to keep the images hidden. Who? Why? And who can Andrew turn to for help - in a world where kidnap, subterfuge and even murder are the norm, and where no one is safe or above suspicion?

Autumn Into Winter

City of Roses is a serialized epic very firmly set in Portland, Oregon--an urban fantasy mixing magical realism with gonzo noirish prose, where sinister high-rise riverfront condos are fought by a sprawling tea-house constructed from scrap lumber and old windows, and ancient sea-gods retire to close-in Southeast apartments with lovely views. It's the story of Jo Maguire, a highly strung, underemployed telemarketer, and what happens when she meets Ysabel, a princess of unspecified pedigree. Jo rather unexpectedly becomes Ysabel's guardian and caretaker, and now must make a place for herself among Ysabel’s decidedly unusual family and friends--which involves rather more sword-play than most of us are used to. This omnibus ebook collects the full first season of the critically acclaimed serial, chapters 1 - 22, also available in volume 1, "Wake up..." , and volume 2, The Dazzle of Day.

Grammar Dictation offers an innovative approach to the study of grammar in the language classroom - the 'grammar dictation' or 'dictogloss' procedure. A text is dictated at normal speed, after which students try and reconstruct their own version of the original text. The correction process then enables students to understand their errors and the language options available to them.
