When a deadly infectious disease starts tearing through the Glades, the hunt is on to find patient zero!
During her junior-year-abroad in Senegal, idealistic Beth Barton meets charismatic sculptor Malik Ndour and, without her parents’ knowledge, marries him. The couple’s arrival at her home near Portland, Maine, in early 2001, throws the parents’ marriage into turmoil, and soon puts stress on the newlyweds’ relationship as well. As a result of mounting domestic and racial tensions, the broader clash of African and Western cultures, and the attack of 9/11, Malik grows increasingly estranged and falls prey to a jihadist recruiter. Late one December night, on Portland’s freezing, fogbound docks, he sets out on his first deadly assignment.
The ensuing crisis throws further light on the mindset of this particular terrorist, as well as on the diverse attitudes of his intimates toward him.

Das Buch ist eine problemorientierte Einführung in die (nicht nur germanistische) Literaturwissenschaft; kein positivistisches Lernbuch, aber auch keine bloße Methodenrevue. Gestützt auf Erfahrungen aus langjähriger Lehre versucht der Autor, anhand anschaulicher Beispiele grundsätzliche Perspektiven und Fragestellungen der Literaturwissenschaft zu entfalten. Das Spektrum der Themen reicht von der antiken Rhetorik und Poetik über Begründungsfragen der modernen Literaturwissenschaft und exemplarische Strukturanalysen zu epischen, lyrischen und dramatischen Texten bis hin zu aktuellen Fragestellungen wie Lesesozialisation und "Literatur in der Medienkonkurrenz". Die leserfreundliche Anlage des Textes, mit erläuternden Marginalien, Begriffsdefinitionen, Schaubildern und Abbildungen soll den Studienanfängern den Einstieg erleichtern und sie ermuntern, die vielfältigen weiterführenden Anregungen und Hinweise selbständig zu verfolgen. Diesem Ziel dient (als Ergänzung zum Buch) dieses "Vertiefungsprogramm zum Selbststudium".

Note to Reader: This is a Summary & Analysis of Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. You are encouraged to buy the full version. The main character, the girl on the train is Rachel, a lonely, alcoholic woman who rides the train to London every morning, keeping up the pretense that she still has a job. From the train she can see the house she had shared with her husband, Tom. He lives there now with his new wife and their daughter. It’s too painful for Rachel to look at her former home, so she looks four doors down to the home of an apparently happy couple. She has named them Jess and Jason, and has invented stories about their lives and feels as though she has a relationship with them. One morning she sees Jess kissing another man and the next day Jess has been reported missing. Rachel is certain she has vital information about the case, but the police have labeled her as an unreliable witness. Throughout the book the readers realize that Rachel’s blackouts are hiding dark truths about the night the woman Rachel calls Jess went missing. Get your copy today
