´A major literary talent . . . speaks about the power and powerlessness that young women are subject to in a wholly fresh, clear-eyed way . . . you´ll find it hard to come away from The Terrible without a stab of recognition in your chest´ Stylist ´You may not run away from the thing that you are because it comes and comes and comes as sure as you breathe.´ This is the story of Yrsa Daley-Ward, and all the things that happened - ´even the Terrible Things (and God, there were Terrible Things)´. It´s about her childhood in the north-west of England with her beautiful, careworn mother and her little brother who sees things written in the stars. It´s also about growing up and discovering the power and fear of sexuality, about pitch grey days of pills and powder: going under, losing yourself, and finding your voice. ´Yrsa´s work is like holding the truth in your hands´ Florence Welch

When elderly Morey Gilbert is found, lying dead in the grass by his wife, Lily, it´s a tragedy, but it shouldn´t have been a shock - old people die. But when she finds a bullet hole in his skull, the blood washed away by heavy rain, sadness turns to fear. It looks like an execution.... Soon a whole city is fearful as new victims are found, killed with the same cold precision. All elderly. All apparently blameless. Detectives Gino and Magozzi, race to uncover a connection and their best hope of doing so may be Grace McBride, beautiful, damaged survivor of an earlier killing spree. And the answers, it seems, are buried in a terrible past. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Borges. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/pauk/001792/bk_pauk_001792_sample.mp3.

His girlfriend has stopped returning his text messages. His dissertation adviser is dubious about his job prospects. It´s the summer of 2008, and his bank account is running dangerously low. Perhaps a few months in Moscow are just what he needs. So Andrei sublets his room in Brooklyn, packs up his hockey stuff, and moves into the apartment that Stalin himself had given his grandmother, a woman who has outlived her husband and most of her friends. She survived the dark days of communism and witnessed Russia´s violent capitalist transformation, during which she lost her beloved dacha. She welcomes Andrei into her home, even if she can´t always remember who he is. Andrei learns to navigate Putin´s Moscow, still the city of his birth, but with more expensive coffee. He looks after his elderly-but surprisingly sharp!-grandmother, finds a place to play hockey, a café to send emails, and eventually some friends, including a beautiful young activist named Yulia. Over the course of the year, his grandmother´s health declines and his feelings of dislocation from both Russia and America deepen. Andrei knows he must reckon with his future and make choices that will determine his life and fate. When he becomes entangled with a group of leftists, Andrei´s politics and his allegiances are tested, and he is forced to come to terms with the Russian society he was born into and the American one he has enjoyed since he was a kid. A wise, sensitive novel about Russia, exile, family, love, history and fate, A Terrible County asks what you owe the place you were born, and what it owes you. Writing with grace and humor, Keith Gessen gives us a brilliant and mature novel that is sure to mark him as one of the most talented novelists of his generation.
