ILLUMINATI, SAKRILEG, DAS VERLORENE SYMBOL und INFERNO - vier Welterfolge, die mit ORIGIN ihre spektakuläre Fortsetzung finden. Die Wege zur Erlösung sind zahlreich. Verzeihen ist nicht der einzige. Als der Milliardär und Zukunftsforscher Edmond Kirsch drei der bedeutendsten Religionsvertreter der Welt um ein Treffen bittet, sind die Kirchenmänner zunächst skeptisch. Was will ihnen der bekennende Atheist mitteilen? Was verbirgt sich hinter seiner "bahnbrechenden Entdeckung", das Relevanz für Millionen Gläubige auf diesem Planeten haben könnte? Nachdem die Geistlichen Kirschs Präsentation gesehen haben, verwandelt sich ihre Skepsis in blankes Entsetzen. Die Furcht vor Kirschs Entdeckung ist begründet. Und sie ruft Gegner auf den Plan, denen jedes Mittel recht ist, ihre Bekanntmachung zu verhindern. Doch es gibt jemanden, der unter Einsatz des eigenen Lebens bereit ist, das Geheimnis zu lüften und der Welt die Augen zu öffnen: Robert Langdon, Symbolforscher aus Harvard, Lehrer Edmond Kirschs und stets im Zentrum der größten Verschwörungen.

The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) from the author of The Da Vinci Code. Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist, and one of Langdon’s first students. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced to flee. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch. They travel to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret. Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme re­ligion, Langdon and Vidal must evade an enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace. They uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery…and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

"Finally, a novel of literary suspense that gets almost everything right—forensically and psychologically." —Sarah Weinman, Baltimore Sun Secretly, in her heart of hearts, Lena Dawson hides the strangest of beliefs about her childhood. Hiding behind a cool competence as a superb fingerprint analyst in a crime lab in snowy Syracuse, New York, she feels totally out of place in the ordinary world of human interaction. Especially since the controlling husband who guided and protected her, then cheated and left her (though now he wants her back). Her uncanny ability to read a crime scene draws her into investigating a mysterious series of crib deaths—but ultimately the most difficult puzzle she must solve is the one of her own origins. Diana Abu-Jaber, a “gifted and graceful writer” (Chicago Tribune), masterfully “transcends formula” (Kirkus Reviews) as “the tension of Origin escalates, shaped as much by beautifully nuanced prose as menacing events” (New York Daily News).

A dazzling debut novel by the prize-winning author of Yellow, set in the unique and exotic nightworld of Tokyo. In this "poignant story of prejudice, betrayal and the search for identity" (Newsweek International), the trials and tribulations of these three remarkable characters are "at turns trenchantly funny and heartbreakingly sad" (Publishers Weekly). "[An] elegant and haunting debut" (Entertainment Weekly), Country of Origin is a "swirl of action, a whirl of love and sex and race and politics, local and international" (Chicago Tribune)—a "quiet literary triumph" (Booklist) Lisa Countryman is a woman of complex origins. Half-Japanese, adopted by African American parents, she returns to Tokyo, ostensibly to research her thesis on Japan's "sad, brutal reign of conformity." When she vanishes, Tom Hurley, who is half-Korean and half-white, is assigned to her case at the American embassy, as is local cop Kenzo Ota, who is 100 percent Japanese but deemed an outsider.

The Origins of the English Novel, 1600-1740, combines historical analysis and readings of extraordinarily diverse texts to reconceive the foundations of the dominant genre of the modern era. Now, on the fifteenth anniversary of its initial publication, The Origins of the English Novel stands as essential reading. The anniversary edition features a new introduction in which the author reflects on the considerable response and commentary the book has attracted since its publication by describing dialectical method and by applying it to early modern notions of gender. Challenging prevailing theories that tie the origins of the novel to the ascendancy of "realism" and the "middle class," McKeon argues that this new genre arose in response to the profound instability of literary and social categories. Between 1600 and 1740, momentous changes took place in European attitudes toward truth in narrative and toward virtue in the individual and the social order. The novel emerged, McKeon contends, as a cultural instrument designed to engage the epistemological and social crises of the age.

A novel at turns exuberant and wise, in the vein of The Family Fang and The Portable Veblen, about estranged half siblings yoked together on a swampy Gulf Coast island after their biologist father's drowning. Welcome to Leap's Island, where a group of fringe scientists are obsessively studying the Undowny Bufflehead, a rare species of sea duck whose loss of waterproof feathers proves, they say, that evolution is running backward. Into this world of so-called Reversalists come Elsa and Nolan Grey, a half brother and sister whose father, Dr. Ian Grey, has recently drowned while desperately trying to prove his own evolutionary theories. His estranged children find themselves on a pilgrimage to jointly reclaim his belongings and his memory, and to try to understand the stakes of the research he abandoned them to pursue. The Grey children, as the islanders come to call them, despite their being thirty-five and twenty-nine years old, are incredulous that their brilliant father could have believed in Reversalism's pseudoscience. But as the siblings search for an elusive sea bird, confront the island's eccentrics, and hunt for signs their father still believed in progress, a darker question haunts them: Is it their fault Dr. Ian Grey gave up on us all? Delightfully funny and fiercely original, Family of Origin grapples with questions of nature and nurture, evolution and mating, intimacy and betrayal, progress and forgiveness.
