From the author of Searching for Sylvie Lee, the iconic, New York Times-bestselling debut novel that introduced an important Chinese-American voice with an inspiring story of an immigrant girl forced to choose between two worlds and two futures. When Kimberly Chang and her mother emigrate from Hong Kong to Brooklyn squalor, she quickly begins a secret double life: exceptional schoolgirl during the day, Chinatown sweatshop worker in the evenings. Disguising the more difficult truths of her life-like the staggering degree of her poverty, the weight of her family's future resting on her shoulders, or her secret love for a factory boy who shares none of her talent or ambition-Kimberly learns to constantly translate not just her language but herself back and forth between the worlds she straddles. Through Kimberly's story, author Jean Kwok, who also emigrated from Hong Kong as a young girl, brings to the page the lives of countless immigrants who are caught between the pressure to succeed in America, their duty to their family, and their own personal desires, exposing a world that we rarely hear about. Written in an indelible voice that dramatizes the tensions of an immigrant girl growing up between two cultures, surrounded by a language and world only half understood, Girl in Translation is an unforgettable and classic novel of an American immigrant-a moving tale of hardship and triumph, heartbreak and love, and all that gets lost in translation.

Where are you with Jesus? What have you sacrificed to follow Him? Did you leave the world behind when you set out after Christ, or are you attempting to drag it along with you? No Cross, No Crown is a soul-searching indictment of half-hearted hypocritical Christianity written by William Penn, a fearless Christian who braved the King and the Church of England in his quest to follow the teachings of Christ. First published in 1682, this new edition is an entirely new translation of William Penn’s 2nd edition into modern English and clear syntax. Penn’s meaning is preserved, and his original words are left untouched whenever possible; but the result is far clearer and more accessible to the modern Christian than ever before. Audiobook narrated by Eric Martin. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ron Taylor, Simon Phillips. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/ccom/000018/bk_ccom_000018_sample.mp3.

The Aeneid , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 800min

After a century of civil strife in Rome and Italy, the poet Virgil wrote The Aeneid to honor the emperor Augustus by praising Aeneas, Augustus's legendary ancestor. As a patriotic epic imitating Homer, The Aeneid also set out to provide Rome with a literature equal to that of Greece. It tells of Aeneas, survivor of the sack of Troy, and of his seven-year journey: to Carthage, where he fell tragically in love with Queen Dido; to the underworld, in the company of the Sibyl of Cumae; and, finally, to Italy, where he founded Rome. It is a story of defeat and exile, and of love and war. Virgil's Aeneid is as eternal as Rome itself, a sweeping epic of arms and heroism - the searching portrait of a man caught between love and duty, human feeling, and the force of fate. Filled with drama, passion, and the universal pathos that only a masterpiece can express. The Aeneid is a book for all the time and all people. This version of The Aeneid is the classic translation by John Dryden. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Page. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/001376/bk_tant_001376_sample.mp3.

A novel of searing intelligence and startling originality, Lost in Translation heralds the debut of a unique new voice on the literary landscape. Nicole Mones creates an unforgettable story of love and desire, of family ties and human conflict, and of one woman's struggle to lose herself in a foreign land - only to discover her home, her heart, herself. At dawn in Beijing, Alice Mannegan pedals a bicycle through the deserted streets. An American by birth, a translator by profession, she spends her nights in Beijing's smoke-filled bars, and the Chinese men she so desires never misunderstand her intentions. All around her rushes the air of China, the scent of history and change, of a world where she has come to escape her father's love and her own pain. It is a world in which, each night as she slips from her hotel, she hopes to lose herself forever. For Alice, it began with a phone call from an American archaeologist seeking a translator. And it ended in an intoxicating journey of the heart - one that would plunge her into a nation's past, and into some of the most rarely glimpsed regions of China. Hired by an archaeologist searching for the bones of Peking Man, Alice joins an expedition that penetrates a vast, uncharted land and brings Professor Lin Shiyang into her life. As they draw closer to unearthing the secret of Peking Man, as the group's every move is followed, their every whisper recorded, Alice and Lin find shelter in each other, slowly putting to rest the ghosts of their pasts. What happens between them becomes one of the most breathtakingly erotic love stories in recent fiction. Indeed, Lost in Translation is a novel about love - between a nation and its past, between a man and a memory, between a father and a daughter. It's powerful impact confirms the extraordinary gifts of a master storyteller, Nicole Mones. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Angela Lin.

Beowulf: A Performance Translation , Hörbuch, D...
9,95 € *

This is a dynamic performance by Sebastian Lockwood of the great poem using a new translation by Clark and Lockwood. This single inherited epic in our language has it all: drama, blood, heroism, mourning, and teaching with soul-searching thought about all this. It looks back. In its top layer of listening, we are brought along with heroic figures, even with a superhero, to challenge agonizing monsters. This world also includes beautiful sea voyages, crafty disputes, the falling of tribes, and moving elegies. Most often its Old English poetry can translate directly into fresh pictures. The epic Beowulf is a masterfully told story. Beowulf also steadily gives insight on its listening audience during a momentous time of transitions, in England between the eighth and 11th century. The courts of Beowulf teem with signs of deadly intrigues to come, hubris, cowardice, the betrayal of good leaders. Pagan Wyrd and Christian God are both at work here. In early Christian England, the people, including monastics, still loved to tell and hear those ancient oral heroic - and pagan - teaching-stories. This epic is unique in that it bridges the ethical gap. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sebastian Lockwood. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/096116/bk_acx0_096116_sample.mp3.
