Hawkes, Travesty. John Hawkes' most extreme vision of eroticism and comic terror.
This is the story of Katharina von Bora, the nun who, with eleven others late one night, slipped out of the Marienthron Convent and hid among the herring barrels on Herr Koppe's wagon. The driver, having tied down the heavy canvas over the barrels, clambered up onto the wagon and urged the horses on their way. The nuns shivered and gagged as they crouched among the smelly fish barrels. If Katharina von Bora had been content to count her beads, do penance for her sins, and close her mind to the truths of the Bible, she would have lived and died in the obscurity of the Convent. But because she followed where God led, she became the first lady of the evangelical Reformation, the wife of the great Dr. Martin Luther, and the mother of a fine family. She lived to b others.
She found true happiness in serving those in need. The poor, little escaped nun died a truly rich person.

A feast of a medieval adventure with a thoroughly modern heroine. As the murmur of prayers fills the icy room, mother and baby seem doomed. When the newborn finally struggles into the world, the Count of Flanders flees in a rage. The child is not the expected male heir -- but a girl. Growing up under the disapproving eye of her heart father, the strong-willed Marguerite instinctively learns to survive in the fierce and violent male world of the Middle Ages, with its pagan rituals and bloody fights to the death. When her father demands that she wed a man she detests, the young countess uses all her cunning to stop the marriage. The only thing she cannot conquer is the plague, which marches across the land killing thousands, including the man she loves.
Based on a real character, this colorful story is told with sharp humor and is filled with dramatic intensity. The final scene in the book, in which Marguerite and her father engage in a savage sword fight, will remain engrained in readers' memories.
I det viktorianska London har något fasansfullt väckts till liv efter att ha spenderat århundraden i mörker. Dess första ord är ”Törst!” Jona blir det första offret. Bettet förvandlar honom gradvis till en vampyr, men bara för att göra honom till en slav, till en mördare av nödtvång. Han rör sig i natten, genom gatorna i Paris och London, bland fattiga och prostituerade. Han brottas med sin blodtörst och sitt samvete. Han brottas med den existentiella krisen inför att upphöra - som människa. Läs: http://www.provlas.se/bladdra/9789188... Hemsida: http://mikaelmansen.se/romaner%20och%...
