From the New York Times–bestselling author of The First Wives Club: This novel about an aging actress’s revenge on Hollywood is a “hoot” (Entertainment Weekly). Mary Jane Moran was an ambitious New York stage actress who lost the role of a lifetime and the one man she loved—all because Hollywood thought she was too plain and too old to star in the movies. But M. J. knew what she had inside—she just needed a little help bringing it out. Two years, forty pounds, sixty-seven thousand dollars, and a full round of nips, tucks, lipos, and implants later, the Broadway gypsy moth emerged a gorgeous butterfly with a new name and a new body. The woman now called Jahne Moore was svelte, sexy, and ripe for the big time. Jahne and her two sisters-in-arms—one ruthless LA native and one sweet Texas belle—are making their move on the West Coast. Television’s top creator wants them in the season’s white-hot new series. But as the starlets climb furiously to the top, they struggle to hide the secrets of their pasts. And Jahne Moore must give her most convincing performance ever when the same man who once broke her heart begs her to play a starring role—both in his show and in his life . . . “[A] juicy novel about Hollywood celebrities and secrets.” —Publishers Weekly “Compulsively readable.” —New York Daily News “Delicious and satisfying.” —Detroit Free Press

Die größte Erfassung der deutschen umgangssprachlichen Begriffe erfolgte durch das 65.000 Stichwörter beinhaltende "Wörterbuch der Umgangssprache" von Heinz Küppers (1. Fassung 1955), das den gesamten deutschen Sprachraum einschließlich Österreich und die deutschsprachige Schweiz berücksichtigte. Das "Synonymwörterbuch der Umgangssprache" geht von zwei anderen Voraussetzungen aus: Erstens trägt es der Tatsache Rechnung, dass die Umgangssprache bereits in einem sehr überschaubaren Zeitraum einem extremen Wandel unterliegt und durch ganz neue Szenarien geprägt wird. Unter diesem Gesichtspunkt tauchen aus der Küpperschen Sammlung nur noch vereinzelte umgangssprachliche Begriffe auf. Zweitens kommt es hier zu einer Umkehrung der Suchfunktion, da der Leser jetzt auf ihm geläufige Begriffe zurückgreifen kann, für die er dann mittels der Hilfe eines Synonymwörterbuches die aktuellen umgangssprachlichen Termini nachschlagen kann. Ein Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit umgangssprachlicher Begriffe kann selbstverständlich nicht erhoben werden und ist auch gar nicht beabsichtigt. Die vorliegende Sammlung erfasst dabei Begriffe aus den Bereichen der Jugendsprache, des "Dirty Talk" (Sexualsprache), des Szenejargons, des Hip-Hop-Jargons, der belletristischen und satirischen Literatur, der Medienszene, Zeitschriften und aus persönlichen Gesprächen. Die Originalität ist dabei häufig als subjektives Auswahlkriterium herangezogen worden. Gegenüber dem "Synonymwörterbuch der Umgangssprache" von 2010 hat sich allerdings eine erhebliche Erweiterung und Veränderung ergeben. Die Anzahl der Stichwörter (Suchbegriffe) und umgangssprachlicher Begriffe ist um mehr als das Doppelte angewachsen. Neben reinen Wortbegriffen sind auch sinnverwandte Redensarten aufgenommen worden. Hierbei handelt es sich um eine aphoristische Absetzung von den unausbleiblichen Verballhornungen und abgedroschenen Worthülsen der Umgangssprache. An diesen sprachlichen Innovationen hat sich auch der Herausgeber mit einigen "handausgedachten" Begriffshubereien beteiligt. Soweit bekannt sind auch die Urheber passender Formulierungen kenntlich gemacht worden. Die Verwendung der Umgangssprache ist vielfach auch mit einer herabsetzenden Würdigung des Standardbegriffes (Stichwort) verbunden und kann fallweise als Beleidigung aufgefasst werden. Diese Tatsache hat gleichfalls zu einer Erweiterung des ursprünglichen Titels geführt, so dass sich das Kompilatorium neben seiner Eigenschaft als reines Synonymwörterbuch der Umgangssprache auch als ein Wörterbuch der Beleidigungen darstellt.

‘A dazzling and virtuosic adventure’ Joseph O’Connor, author of Star of the Sea Internationally Bestselling Winner of the Man Asian Literary Prize 2008 ‘With Ilustrado, Miguel Syjuco obliges us to remake the canons of our great classics of contemporary literature. Ilustrado is, literally, a masterpiece’ Alberto Manguel It begins with a body. One anonymous winter day, the corpse of Crispin Salvador is pulled from the Hudson River. Gone is the controversial giant of Asian literature. And missing is the only manuscript of his final book, an exposé of the corrupt roots of the ruling Filipino families, meant to restore his once dazzling reputation. His student, Miguel, is suspicious of the suicide verdict. He investigates: first sifting through the dead man’s work for clues, then journeying from New York to Manila, seeking out family, colleagues, and anyone who might hold pieces of the puzzle. But when Miguel assembles the fragments of his mentor’s past, this ambitious and rewarding novel expands into far wider contexts – political, social, historical, literary. As patterns emerge, the mystery of a death deepens into the greater mysteries of life – and the reader makes increasingly significant discoveries of their own, until the startling revelation of the final page. ‘A big, bold, cunning, impassioned, plangent and very funny book’ Scotsman ‘Bristling with comic verve, metafictional playfulness, and an undertone of expatriate nostalgia . . . an impressive, vibrant mix of Borgesian literary labyrinth and acerbic émigré comedy’ Sunday Times ‘A seethingly ambitious debut . . . US critics have cited Bolaño as an obvious comparison; others may think of Midnight’s Children-era Rushdie’ Independent

[Taltos]is a curious amalgam of gothic, glamour fiction, alternate history, and high soap opera.”—The Washington Post Book World “Anne Rice will live on through the ages of literature.”—San Francisco Chronicle “An intricate, stunning imagination.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review “Spellbinding . . . mythical . . . Anne Rice is a pure storyteller.”—Cosmopolitan “Beautifully written.”—Kirkus Reivews (starred review) “Her power of invention seems boundless. . . .
