When his next-door neighbors in a quaint New England town suddenly pick up and move to a gated retired community in Florida called The Villages, Andrew Blechman is astonished by their stories, so he goes to investigate. Larger than Manhattan, with a golf course for every day of the month, two downtowns, its own newspaper, radio, and TV station, The Villages is a city of nearly 100,000 (and growing) missing only one thing: children. In the critically acclaimed Leisureville, Blechman delves into life in the senior utopia, offering a hilarious firsthand report on everything from ersatz nostalgia to the residents´ surprisingly active sex lives. But this is more than just a romp through a retirement paradise; Blechman traces the history of the age-segregated retirement phenomenon, and travels to Arizona to show what has happened to the pioneering developments after decades of segregation. A fascinating blend of serious history, social commentary, and hilarious, engaging reportage, Leisureville is an important book on a major, underreported trend. 1. Language: English.

Eine gelungene Fortsetzung Seit 1881 wird in Bunnahabhain, im Norden der Insel Islay in der Nähe von Port Askaig, Whisky gebrannt. Die Destillerie liegt an der Mündung des Margadale in den Sound of Islay. Von diesem Fluss stammen sowohl der Name – Bunnahabhain bedeutet in etwa „Flussmündung´´ - als auch das Wasser für den Whisky. Dazu wird das frische Quellwasser des Margadale direkt von seinem Ursprung mittels Rohrleitung zur Bunnahabhain Destillerie geführt. Da so das Wasser auf seinem Weg in die Brennerei keine Torfschichten durchquert, trägt Bunnahabhains Whisky im Gegensatz zu den übrigen Islay Whiskies keine intensiv torfigen Noten. Dieser Bunnahabhain ist –wenn man so will- eine Fortsetzung des sehr erfolgreichen „Bunnahabhain Toiteach´´, entsprechend heißt Toiteach A Dhà´´ (gesprochen Toch-ach ah-ghaa) wörtlich übersetzt „Rauchig Zwei´´. Komponiert von den kundigen Händen Dr. Kirstie McCallums, Senior Blender, bringt die Verwendung leicht getorfter Gerste einen Hauch Rauchigkeit, dazu kommt ein etwas höherer Anteil Sherry-Fass-gereifter Whiskies. Wie üblich nicht kühlfiltriert und ungefärbt mit kräftigen 46,3 Vol% Alkoholgehalt abgefüllt. Bernstein golden in der Farbe, begegnet er der Nase mit gerösteten Nüssen, Zimt, ein wenig Chili-Schärfe, kräftigen, schwarzen Johannisbeeren, dunklen Eichenholz-Noten und Sherry-Tönen. Am Gaumen dann zeigt er sich mit einer fließend verwobenen Mischung aus Sherry und feinem Torfrauch, dazu ein Hauch See-Salzigkeit, Räucherhering, Zartbitterschokolade, Rosinen mit ein wenig Cantaloupe-Melone, die diesen „Bunnahabhain Toiteach A Dhà´´ in einen malzigen, trocken rauchigen und leicht pfeffrig anmutenden Abgang begleiten. Geruch: geröstete Nüsse, Zimt, etwas Chili-Schärfe, schwarze Johannisbeeren, dunkles Eichenholz, Sherry-Töne Geschmack: Sherry und feiner Torfrauch, etwas See-Salzigkeit, Raucherhering, Zartbitterschokolade, Rosinen, etwas Cantaloupe-Melone Abgang: mittellang, malzig, trocken rauchig, leicht pfeffrig

Perfect for fans of Thirteen Reasons Why and Looking for Alaska, The Tragedy Paper has been called ´´a beguiling and beautifully written tale of first love and heartbreak,” by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Weiner. It follows the story of Tim Macbeth, a seventeen-year-old albino and a recent transfer to the prestigious Irving School, where the motto is ´´Enter here to be and find a friend.” A friend is the last thing Tim expects or wants - he just hopes to get through his senior year unnoticed. Yet, despite his efforts to blend into the background, he finds himself falling for the quintessential ´´It” girl, Vanessa Sheller, girlfriend of Irving’s most popular boy. To Tim´s surprise, Vanessa is into him, too, but she can kiss her social status goodbye if anyone ever finds out. Tim and Vanessa begin a clandestine romance, but looming over them is the Tragedy Paper, Irving’s version of a senior year thesis, assigned by the school’s least forgiving teacher. Jumping between viewpoints of the love-struck Tim and Duncan, a current senior about to uncover the truth of Tim and Vanessa, The Tragedy Paper is a compelling tale of forbidden love and the lengths people will go to keep their secrets. 1.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ´´Epic and debate-shifting.´´ -David Brooks, New York Times ´´More than any book published so far in this century, it deserves to be called a conservative classic.´´ -Yuval Levin, National Review With his trademark blend of political history, social science, economics, and pop culture, two-time NYT bestselling author, syndicated columnist, National Review senior editor, and American Enterprise Institute fellow Jonah Goldberg makes the timely case that America and other democracies are in peril as they lose the will to defend the values and institutions that sustain freedom and prosperity. Instead we are surrendering to populism, nationalism and other forms of tribalism. Only once in the last 250,000 years have humans stumbled upon a way to lift ourselves out of the endless cycle of poverty, hunger, and war that defines most of history-in 18th century England when we accidentally discovered the miracle of liberal democratic capitalism. As Americans we are doubly blessed that those radical ideas were written into the Constitution, laying the groundwork for our uniquely prosperous society: · Our rights come from God not from the government. · The government belongs to us; we do not belong to the government. · The individual is sovereign. We are all captains of our own souls. · The fruits of our labors belong to us. In the last few decades, these political virtues have been turned into vices. As we are increasingly taught to view our traditions as a system of oppression, exploitation and ´´white privilege,´´ the principles of liberty and the rule of law are under attack from left and right. At a moment when authoritarianism, tribalism, identity politics, nationalism, and cults of personality are rotting our democracy from within, Goldberg exposes the West´s suicidal tendencies on both sides of the ideological aisle. For the West to survive, we must renew our sense of gratitude for what our civilization has given us and rediscover the ideals that led us out of the bloody muck of the past - or back to the muck we will go. Suicide is painless, liberty takes work.
