Sinéad Moriarty poured all her experiences in trying to get pregnant for the first time into her debut novel The Baby Trail. Her heroine Emma Hamilton discovers that the road to conception is far from straightforward and her story is a moving and funny exploration of an experience so central to so many women's lives. The novel established Sinéad as a major talent in the tradition of Marian Keyes. TicktockticktockTICKTOCK ... That's Emma Hamilton's biological clock you can hear. She wants a baby and she wants one NOW. But when Mother Nature refuses to play ball, Emma decides to give her a prod - or two. Soon her life is a roller-coaster of post-sex handstands (you can't argue with gravity), hormone-inducing (sanity-reducing) drugs and a veritable army of probing specialists (torturers, more like). It's out with the booze and spontaneous sex, in with green tea and ovulation tests. Emma couldn't have conceived that the road to pregnancy would turn into the mother of all journeys. But she's finding out that once you're on the baby trail, nothing is sacred - and one way or another, life will never be the same again ... Sinéad Moriarty's novels have sold over half a million copies in Ireland and the UK and she is a four times nominee for the popular fiction Irish Book Award. She has won over readers and critics telling stories that are funny, humane, moving and relevant to modern women. The Baby Trail was Sinéad's first novel and her distinctive voice, and trademark mix of light and shade, announced that a fabulous new talent had arrived. Sinéad Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her other titles are: A Perfect Match; From Here to Maternity; In My Sister's Shoes; Keeping It In the Family (also titled Whose Life Is It Anyway?); Pieces of My Heart; Me and My Sisters and This Child of Mine.

"Eine unglaublich eindrucksvolle Lektüre. Gowars Gespür für anschauliche und sinnliche Details ist erstaunlich." The Bookseller Ein Wunder, raunen die einen. Betrug, rufen die anderen. Für den Kaufmann Jonah Hancock zählt nur eines: Die Meerjungfrau, die sein Kapitän aus Übersee mitgebracht hat, versetzt ganz London in Staunen. Wie ein Lauffeuer verbreitet sich die Kunde in den Kaffeehäusern, Salons und Bordellen der Stadt. Jonah steigt in die obersten Kreise der Gesellschaft auf und verkauft seine Meerjungfrau schließlich für eine schwindelerregende Summe. Nur die Gunst der Edelkurtisane Angelica Neal bleibt unerschwinglich für ihn, denn als Beweis seiner Liebe fordert Angelica eine eigene Meerjungfrau. Jonah setzt alles daran, ihr diesen Wunsch zu erfüllen. Doch Wunder haben einen hohen Preis. Ein preisgekröntes Romandebüt über Menschen, Meerjungfrauen und das ewige Streben nach mehr. Imogen Hermes Gowar erweckt das London des 18. Jahrhunderts zum Leben - schillernd, faszinierend und facettenreich.

William Shakespeare: Cymbeline (Cymbeline) Die tragikomische Romanze in fünf Akten entstand um 1608 und wurde 1611 in London uraufgeführt. Der Erstdruck erfolgte 1623 in der sogenannten First Folio Ausgabe. Der junge Edelmann Posthumus heiratet heimlich Imogen, die Tochter des Königs Cymbeline, der daraufhin Posthumus von seinem Hof verbannt. Die anmutige Imogen muss am Hofe des Vaters bleiben und seinen Zorn ertragen, während Posthumus in Italien Laster und Intrige ausgesetzt ist und schließlich auf die Treue seiner zurückgelassenen Frau wettet. Die deutsche Erstaufführung erfolgte 1897 in München. Die in dieser Ausgabe zugrunde gelegte Übersetzung stammt von Dorothea Tieck und wurde erstmals 1832 bei Georg Andreas Reimer in Berlin gedruckt. Zur Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung: August Wilhelm Schlegel begann 1796 eine Gesamtübersetzung der Werke William Shakespeares, musste das Vorhaben jedoch 1810 nach 14 Dramen abbrechen. 1825 setzte Ludwig Tieck das Projekt unter Mitarbeit seiner ältesten Tochter Dorothea und Wolf Graf von Baudissins fort. 1833 schloss Dorothea Tieck mit der deutschen Fassung von Macbeth die bis heute als maßgeblich geltende sogenannte Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung ab. »Ich empfehle dringend die sogenannte Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung.« Marcel Reich-Ranicki Erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt von Johann Joachim Eschenburg (1777). Die vorliegende Übersetzung stammt von Dorothea Tieck. Erstdruck in: Shakspeare's dramatische Werke. Übersetzt von August Wilhelm Schlegel.
