A journalist is haunted by the ghost of a story - and a woman - she can´t leave behind. A story so powerful that it haunts the dreams and waking hours of all that have lived through it. A genocide in which the West failed to save the innocent. This is the story of aftermath - of how the dead we fail, haunt us - and how we must return, to lay their ghosts and set ourselves free. Katharine Quarmby is a writer, journalist, and film-maker. Her latest book is No Place to Call Home: Inside the Real Lives of Gypsies and Travellers (One World Publications, 2013). Her first Kindle Single, Blood and Water, was also published this year (Thistle, 2013). In 1997 she travelled with reporter Fergal Keane and BBC Panorama to Rwanda, two years after the genocide, working as assistant producer on the Bafta award-winning Valentina´s Story. She returned with Fergal Keane to produce two prize-winning films with BBC Newsnight in 1999. Since then she has worked both in TV and in print journalism, as a correspondent for The Economist, as well as contributing to British broadsheets, including the Guardian and Sunday Times. This is her first short story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Serena Gay. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/019059de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
A wrenching and layered debut novel about a gay teen´s coming-of-age in the aftermath of his father´s suicide Middle school hasn´t been going well for Colin. His teenage sister teases him mercilessly, his autistic brother lashes out at him, and he has a crush on his best friend, Andy. But after the tragic night when his father commits suicide, none of that matters. Diane, his mother, seeks solace in therapy. Colin is awash in guilt, and casts about for someone to confide in: first his estranged grandfather, then a predatory science teacher. But nothing helps as much as the strange writing his father kept in a series of notebooks locked in his study. Colin looks for answers there-in fragments about disaster scenarios, the violence of snow, mustangs running wild in the west-but instead finds the writing infecting his worldview. Diane, meanwhile, has a miserable fling with a co-worker, and leans more heavily on Colin for support as things go from bad to worse. But spring is unfolding, and a road trip to Los Angeles gives them a tantalizing glimpse of what the future might hold. In Some Hell , a debut novel of devastating intensity and aching, pointillistic detail, Patrick Nathan shows how unspeakable tragedy shapes a life, and how imagination saves us from ourselves.

In Cold War Freud Dagmar Herzog uncovers the astonishing array of concepts of human selfhood which circulated across the globe in the aftermath of World War II. Against the backdrop of Nazism and the Holocaust, the sexual revolution, feminism, gay rights, and anticolonial and antiwar activism, she charts the heated battles which raged over Freud´s legacy. From the postwar US to Europe and Latin America, she reveals how competing theories of desire, anxiety, aggression, guilt, trauma and pleasure emerged and were then transformed to serve both conservative and subversive ends in a fundamental rethinking of the very nature of the human self and its motivations. Her findings shed new light on psychoanalysis´ enduring contribution to the enigma of the relationship between nature and culture, and the ways in which social contexts enter into and shape the innermost recesses of individual psyches.
