Simone Meier: DIE ENTFLAMMTEN / IGNITED

Coming soon: More about the book!
Annabelle Hirsch: DIE DINGE / A HISTORY OF WOMEN IN 100 OBJECTS
A HISTORY OF WOMEN IN 100 OBJECTS
A walk through female history
What do handprints on early cave paintings tell us about the role of women in hunting? What does a mobile phone have to do with femicides? Or Kim Kardashian’s diamond ring with Elena Ferrante?
There are countless ways to tell the history of women, and this book does it through objects. Hirsch takes a hundred everyday objects both subtle and bold from the areas of fashion, medicine and art that testify to women’s desire for freedom and their rebellious acts. But they also represent the myths and norms that have long been used to reduce their power. Annabelle Hirsch creates a cosmos of women and their belongings. We encounter an ancient Amazonian doll, a Lilith amulet, the nun’s crown of Hildegard von Bingen, Venetian stilts, a bidet, a hunger strike medal, a plate belonging to Vanessa Bell, an American slave’s cotton bag, Hannah Arendt’s brooch, a »100 km/h coat«, a Tupperware box and much more.

Franziska Gänsler: EWIG SOMMER / ETERNAL SUMMER
A searing debut
An intense, enthralling and exciting debut about female solidarity and the question of how we can trust the people we are attracted to.
When Iris took over the family hotel from her grandfather, Bad Heim was still a popular spa town. But now fierce forest fires rage in the area, spewing smoke into the air. The summers are dry and hot and never seem to end. Guests have become a rare sight. But suddenly, a young mother shows up with her small daughter and asks for a room. Something doesn’t seem right about her. Does she need help? Or even pose a threat? Franziska Gänsler’s debut conjures up the heat of the fires, the ashes falling on skin and the all-pervading smell of smoke. Yet you will want to stay with these women in this inhospitable place as they draw closer together and prepare to fight for their freedom.
Krogerus/Tschäppeler: MACHEN & ZUSAMMENARBEITEN / TO DO & COLLABORATION
A guide to achieving great things together
More is more
When we collaborate, everything works out better. Even a lone wolf needs a team to help get started, contribute, review, improve and press ahead. When it comes to collaboration, we immediately think of meetings, team building, roles, communication and feedback. All of this is valid and vital – but there’s actually much more to it. Collaboration consists of some fundamental issues that are rarely talked about:
How do I work with people I don’t like?
How do we make group decisions if not
everyone has the same opinion?
Do we need a boss?
Hardly anyone learns how to form a team from a group of people. Or how to get better or stay good. Or how to grapple with conflicts without hurting the other person. Or how to celebrate successes and overcome crises. With this book, you can start collaborating properly.

Ayelet Gundar Goshen: WO DER WOLF LAUERT / WHERE THE WOLF LURKS
WHERE THE WOLF LURKS
Our kids are the biggest mystery of our live
A novel of psychological ingenuity about how the people we think we know best often remain the biggest mystery to us – our children.
Lilac Schuster lives the American dream: A house with a pool in the heart of Silicon Valley, a husband who is a CEO of an Israeli-US start-up, and a son whom she dearly loves. But then, Jamal Jones, a classmate of Adam’s, collapses and dies at a party. It is only later that Lilac learns that Jamal had been bullying her son. Lilac’s concern about her son turns into a disturbing uneasiness: Maybe Jamal‘s death wasn‘t an accident after all? Lilac sets off on a detective trail after her own son. Her journey leads her to Annabella Jones, Jamal’s mother. The encounter between these very different women is a source of resentment, but also of compassion and grace. As the tension between them surges, the two mothers are looking for truth and forgiveness.

OUTSIDE THE PEOPLE ARE CELEBRATING!
This novel will delight your imagination
An exuberant, bold and strident debut about living in the back country and being different in an environment that has no place for outsiders. And about an owl that peddles drugs.
A normal Village in Lower Saxony: a traffic circle in the middle, the city bank next to it, and the annual Onion Festival in September. But not everyone here fits into the staid structure of village life. Timo, Valerie, and Richard have been outsiders since birth. As gradually more and more young people begin disappearing across the country, the three friends realize they might not be alone in their desire to run off and break free. Together they set off in search of the missing, but what they find is something they never could have expected.
Max Küng: FREMDE FREUNDE / UNKNOWN FRIENDS
Three families, nine people, together on vacation in France. The goal: to turn strangers into friends. But is it really that simple? With plenty of charm, wit and a keen eye, Max Küng writes about the smooth exterior of an imposed kindred spirit and stares deep into the abyss of what first appear to be fine cracks.
On the one hand, the invitation sounds perfect. Six days in a holiday cottage in France. A break from everyday routine, rounded off by apple-picking in the orchard, and homemade apple juice to take back home. On the other hand, the parents of Laurent, Quentin and Denis only know each other from parents’ evenings. No wonder that behind the façade of this perfect holiday idyll, emotions quickly begin to seethe. Might the hosts Jean and Jacqueline have ulterior motives with their invitation? What about the strangely chilly mood between Bernhard and his wife, Veronika? Is Filipp as good a partner to his girlfriend Salome as his attractive appearance suggests? And what’s with all the weird goings-on that even the perfectionist Jean can no longer ignore?
