Das ist jetzt geschehen, und ich bin selbst überrascht, dass die Kutschen und Pferde ein bisschen auf der Strecke geblieben sind und dass es eher teilweise eine lustige Horrorgeschichte geworden ist, für mich zumindest. Diese Kulisse finde ich sehr spannend, Behinderung und Tod, mitten im Luxus, so eine scharfe Suppe habe ich noch nicht zuvor gebraut." Scharfe Suppe mit vielen Zutaten Die scharfe Suppe, die Marjana Gaponenko angerührt hat, hat viele Ingredienzien: eine alte Pferderennbahn, Pferderassen und Pferdegeschirre, halsbrecherische Kutschfahrten, einen alten polnischen Pferdenarren, Adam Nieć, der mit Kutschpferden sein Alter genießt und sein Sohn Kaspar, für den diese Leidenschaft zum Verhängnis wird. "Ich lebe einfach so wie dieser Adam Nieć.

Chris Columbus Swings for the Fences with John Grisham’s Calico Joe Chris Columbus/Photo © Debby Wong/Shutterstock Chris Columbus has created a cinematic empire that is Hollywood's equivalent to Starbucks, churning out well-intentioned and broadly appealing movies that are safe, reliable, and built from roughly the same ingredients every time. At the same time, there is nothing cheap or crass about Columbus' growing collection of high-end tent-poles, which includes two "Harry Potter" films and an adaptation of Percy Jackson and the Olympians. But like that Seattle-based purveyor of frothy coffee concoctions, what Columbus may lack in edge or originality he more than makes up for with a bighearted desire to surpass his own limitations while always giving the people what they want. There is nothing unconventional or even unlikely about this union of blockbuster novelist and filmmaker. Calico Joe's prospects of scoring a home run with critics and moviegoers will depend on the cast and key crew Columbus assembles for the project.

Stine, and Others - Entertainment Y.A. for Grownups is a weekly series in which we talk about Y.A. literature—from the now nostalgia-infused stories we devoured as kids to more contemporary tomes being read by young people today. A seasonal gift (or burden) of our youth is the old summer reading list, those books we were supposed to "get ahead" on while ostensibly on vacation for three joyous months. Sometimes we loved the list, sometimes we hated it, and we read it with varying levels of dedication depending on that. But what if you could have picked those books yourself: What would you have chosen? As a companion to our primer on how to identify the perfect beach read, we asked some of our favorite Y.A. book authors (Judy Blume! R.L. JEFF HIRSCH, author of The Eleventh Plague and the upcoming Magisterium (October 2012), offered the following: Watchmen, by Alan Moore. JESSICA SPOTSWOOD, author of Born Wicked, the first in the Cahill Witch Chronicles, told The Atlantic Wire, Well, that should get you through August.

The 25 Best Websites for Literature Lovers | Flavorwire | Page 6 It’s an interesting relationship that book lovers have with the Internet: most would rather read a physical book than something on an iPad or Kindle, and even though an Amazon purchase is just two or three clicks away, dedicated readers would rather take a trip to their local indie bookstore. Yet the literary world occupies a decent-sized space on the web. Readers, writers, publishers, editors, and everybody in between are tweeting, Tumbling, blogging, and probably even Vine-ing about their favorite books. The Millions Ten years is a mighty long time in terms of Internet life, but that’s how long The Millions has been kicking out a steady stream of reviews, essays, and links.
