As a little boy in India, Saroo Brierley got lost on a train. Twenty-five years later, from Australia, he found his way back. This is what happened in between. Born in a poor village in India, Saroo lived hand-to-mouth in a one room hut with his mother and three siblings…until at age five, he mistakenly boarded a train by himself, and ended up in Calcutta, all the way across the country. Uneducated, illiterate, and unable to recall the name of his hometown, he managed to survive for weeks on that city’s rough streets. Soon after, he was adopted by a couple in Tasmania. But despite growing up in a loving upper-middle class Aussie family, Saroo still clung to the last memories of his hometown and family in India, and always wondered if he’d ever find them again. Amazingly, twenty-five years later, with some dogged determination and a heap of luck—and the advent of Google Earth—he did. A Long Way Home is a poignant and inspirational true story of survival and triumph against incredible odds, celebrating the importance of never letting go of what drives the human spirit: hope.

Five-year-old Saroo and his elder brother worked as sweepers in local trains to help their struggling mother. One day, the exhausted little boy fell asleep in a train and when he awoke, he was in Calcutta, surrounded by a crowd of unknown faces. Saroo, poor and illiterate, neither knew his last name nor the name of the town he came from. In a single night he had lost his entire family and joined the countless children who had nowhere to call home in the teeming metropolis. Saroo was eventually adopted by an Australian couple and brought up in Tasmania, but he never forgot his mother. Twenty-five years later, with the help of Google Earth he found her again. A media sensation when it was reported, this will be the first time Saroo writes about his life, from his childhood in Khandwa, in Madhya Pradesh, to his days on the streets of Calcutta and his ultimate reunion with his mother. Moving and inspiring, this is an unforgettable story.

Alles über schlechte Dates und gute Freundschaften. Ein warmes und witziges Memoir über das Erwachsenwerden und alle Lektionen, die man dabei lernt: Dolly Alderton, Shootingstar der englischen Literatur, weiß wirklich alles über desaströse Dates, chaotische Nächte und falsche Entscheidungen. Sie weiß, wie es ist, wenn einem das Herz gebrochen wird – aber auch, wie man es flickt. Denn vor allem erzählt Dolly so brutal ehrlich wie unfassbar komisch vom großen Glück der Freundschaften, die fürs Leben sind und nicht nur Lückenfüller zwischen Liebhabern. Dolly Alderton kennt alle Seiten der Liebe, die guten und die dunklen. Da ist der Guru, der tief in ihr Inneres schauen kann und der sich am Morgen nach der lang ersehnten ersten Nacht doch aus dem Staub macht. Oder ein dubioser Kerl in New York, der sie zu einem Dreier überreden will. Oder der verplante Hippie, für den sie sich die Haare abrasiert. Und dann stellt Dolly plötzlich fest, dass es Liebe auch ganz anders gibt und dass die Freundschaften mit ihren Mädels ihr mehr über die Liebe beigebracht haben als alle Männer. Freundinnen, die für einen da sind, wenn man nicht weiß, wovon man die Miete zahlen soll, wenn eine Beziehung zerbrochen ist oder die

Yeonmi Park träumte nicht von der Freiheit, als sie im Alter von erst 13 Jahren aus Nordkorea floh. Sie wusste nicht einmal, was Freiheit ist. Alles, was sie wusste war, dass sie um ihr Leben lief, dass sie und ihre Familie sterben würde, wenn sie bliebe - vor Hunger, an einer Krankheit oder gar durch Exekution. In ihrem Buch erzählt Yeonmi Park von ihrem Kampf ums Überleben in einem der dunkelsten und repressivsten Regime unserer Zeit; sie erzählt von ihrer grauenhaften Odyssee durch die chinesische Unterwelt, bevölkert von Schmugglern und Menschenhändlern, bis nach Südkorea; und sie erzählt von ihrem erstaunlichen Weg zur führenden Menschenrechts-Aktivistin mit noch nicht einmal 21 Jahren.
