#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • John Grisham’s newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that’s on shaky ground. Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world, to make it a better place. But now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. They all borrowed heavily to attend a third-tier, for-profit law school so mediocre that its graduates rarely pass the bar exam, let alone get good jobs. And when they learn that their school is one of a chain owned by a shady New York hedge-fund operator who also happens to own a bank specializing in student loans, the three know they have been caught up in The Great Law School Scam. But maybe there's a way out. Maybe there’s a way to escape their crushing debt, expose the bank and the scam, and make a few bucks in the process. But to do so, they would first have to quit school. And leaving law school a few short months before graduation would be completely crazy, right? Well, yes and no ... Pull up a stool, grab a cold one, and get ready to spend some time at The Rooster Bar.

Mark, Todd och Zola började sin juristutbildning för att bidra till en bättre värld. De trodde helhjärtat att utbilda sig till jurist innebar att man utbildade sig till att göra gott i samhället. Men nu, på tredje året i utbildningen, inser de att de har blivit lurade. De har alla tre tvingats ta dyra studielån för att ha råd med den privata utbildningen. En utbildning som visar sig vara så värdelös att eleverna knappt lyckas gå ut med fullständiga betyg eller därefter få något jobb inom juridik. De upptäcker att skolan ägs av en skum typ som dessutom är knuten till en bank som specialiserat sig på just studielån... Ju mer Mark, Todd och Zola gräver kring skolans ekonomi, desto märkligare saker dyker upp. På deras stamkrog The Rooster Bar, börjar de smida en plan för att avslöja skolans ägare... John Grisham har ännu en gång skrivit en medryckande, rafflande spänningsroman!

The Red Rooster Cookbook

The Red Rooster Cookbook

Did I get my imagined main bar that sits on a wind-swept Lenox? Am I satisfied that Rooster doesn't gate its window? Have I created a space that welcomes everybody from everywhere? Maybe. Sometimes. Yeah, sure.

Publication coincides with the opening of Samuelsson's first international outpost of Red Rooster in Shoreditch, London, May 2017 Ever since the 1930s, Harlem has been a magnet for more than a million African Americans, a melting pot for Spanish, African, and Caribbean immigrants, and a mecca for artists. When Chef Marcus Samuelsson opened Red Rooster on Harlem’s Lenox Avenue, he envisioned so much more than just a restaurant. He wanted to create a gathering place at the heart of his adopted neighbourhood, where both the uptown and downtown sets could see and be seen, mingle and meet – and so he did, in a big way. The Red Rooster Cookbook is much more than a collection of recipes. It’s a love letter to Harlem shown through the people, music, soul, and food. Marcus’ Ethiopian and Swedish upbringing converge with his Harlem-American present to give readers a culinary clash of dishes to try, all mirroring the menus at his much loved neighbourhood restaurant Red Rooster. Recipes range from the restaurant’s Deviled Eggs with Chicken Skin Mayo, Obama Fried Ribs, Whole Fried Fish with Grits, Curried Goat Stew, Sunday Tomato Eggs, and Uncle T’s Meatballs. He reinvents traditional home comfort foods like macaroni cheese and Swedish meatballs with exciting twists and new flavour combinations, placing them centre stage at the dinner table. Marcus dedicates the book, “To the people of Harlem, especially the generation before mine who cared, restored and fought for uptown, to make sure Harlem would be a special neighbourhood in the greatest city – a place I am lucky to call home.” Full of heritage and culture, music and love, this is far more than just a cookbook.

There comes a time when prudent and meaningful planning and preparation can become excessive and evolve into an impediment much like an anchor, keeping one in place! Almost always, adventure requires a submission to uncertainty and abandon of the pursuit of omniscience, taking at least, to a significant degree that leaps into the unknown. Such was the case of Salt Peter and her skipper for the duration of a year in the Pacific. Originally pursuing a circumnavigation, the journey took the author and his vessel on a seven thousand mile voyage to Hawaii, Tonga, Fiji and finally to New Caledonia, where Salt Peter met her end. It was a journey of discovery, both physically and spiritually, with a range of experience to last a lifetime. I invite you to join me on this year-long adventure and experience with me an honest, uncomplicated and enriching interaction with the seemingly endless ocean and volatile sky and discover with me the rewards of taking a chance.

What Remains collects Christa Wolf's short fiction, from early work in the sixties to the widely debated title story, first published in Germany in 1990. Addressing a wide range of topics, from sexual politics to the nature of memory, these powerful and often very personal stories offer a fascinating introduction to Wolf's work. What Remains and Other Stories . . . is clear and farsighted. The eight heartfelt stories in the book show why she has been respected as a serious author since her 1968 novel, The Quest for Christa T. . . . Wolf uses her own experiences and observations to create universal themes about the controls upon human freedom.—Herbert Mitgang, New York Times Christa Wolf has set herself nothing less than the task of exploring what it is to be a conscious human being alive in a moment of history.—Mary Gordon, New York Times Book Review The simultaneous publication of these two volumes offers readers here a generous sampling of the short fiction, speeches and essays that Wolf has produced over the last three decades.—Mark Harman, Boston Globe
