„In manchen Breitengraden gibt es vor der Sommersonnenwende und danach eine Zeitspanne, nur wenige Wochen, in der die Dämmerungen lang und blau werden. Während der blauen Stunden glaubt man, der Tag wird nie enden. Wenn die Zeit der blauen Stunden sich dem Ende nähert (und das wird sie, sie endet), erlebt man ein Frösteln, eine Vorahnung der Krankheit: das blaue Licht verschwindet, die Tage werden schon kürzer, der Sommer ist vorbei.“ In Blaue Stunden erinnert Joan Didion sich an ihre Tochter Quintana, daran,wie es war, sie aufwachsen zu sehen und Abschied zu nehmen, als Quintana mit nur 39 Jahren starb. Eine sehr persönliche Bilanz der großen amerikanischen Autorin und ein ehrliches Buch über Tod und Vergänglichkeit, Erinnerung und Alter, über das, was wir verlieren, und das, was bleibt.

Die berührenden Schicksale zweier Familien zwischen den Fronten des Südtiroler "Freiheitskampfes": Mall erzählt abwechselnd aus der Perspektive eines kleinen Jungen, dessen Vater aus für ihn unerklärlichen Gründen verhaftet wird und später auf mysteriöse Weise ums Leben kommt, und aus der Sicht einer jungen Frau, deren sprachgestörter Bruder Opfer eines missglückten Bombenattentats wird. Auf diese Weise zeichnet er das dichte Bild einer Zeit, die bis in intimste Bereiche hinein von der Frage bestimmt war, mit welchen Mitteln man sich gegen tatsächliche oder vermeintliche staatliche Unterdrückung zur Wehr setzen dürfe - ein Thema, das nichts von seiner Brisanz und Aktualität verloren hat.

1927. Ein Sommer der ein ganzes Jahrhundert prägte Es ist die Geschichte eines Sommers, und doch ist es so viel mehr. Das Jahr 1927 ist für Amerika entscheidend auf dem Weg zur Weltmacht. Es sind die goldenen Zwanziger: der Aktienmarkt boomt, das Fernsehen wird erfunden, die Filme sind nicht mehr stumm, und verrückte Pläne entstehen, wie der, vier Köpfe in den völlig unzugänglichen Mount Rushmore zu meißeln. Es ist die Zeit, in der ein junger Flieger namens Charles Lindbergh Ruhm und Ehre erlangt, aber auch die des Al Capone und des größten Schulmassakers aller Zeiten. Und in diesen Monaten werden durch fatale Entscheidungen die Weichen für die bevorstehende Weltwirtschaftskrise gestellt. Bill Bryson erzählt davon so spannend, als sei es eine unglaubliche Abenteuergeschichte, voller erstaunlicher geschichtlicher Momente aus der Zeit, als Amerika erwachsen wurde ...

Als in den Augusttagen 1914 die Nachricht vom Kriegsausbruch in Europa in Lateinamerika bekannt wurde, sprach man dort von einem »Drama der gesamten Menschheit«, in dem es keine Zuschauer geben könne. Viele Beobachter stimmten darin überein, dass in diesem Sommer eine Epoche endete und eine neue Ära begann. In Lateinamerika, das durch die neuartige Form des Propagandakriegs und die neuen Kommunikationstechnologien direkter als je zuvor in die Ereignisse der »Alten Welt« involviert war, gab der Krieg den Anlass zu emanzipatorischen Bestrebungen, die sich während des Konflikts – oder unmittelbar nach Kriegsende – bemerkbar machten. Seit längerer Zeit bestehende Konfliktpotenziale verschärften sich durch die »Urkatastrophe des 20. Jahrhunderts« und mündeten in neue soziale Bewegungen, deren Ausrichtung höchst unterschiedlich war. Die weltumspannende Dimension der Geschichte des »Großen Krieges« wird in diesem Buch aus der Perspektive eines Kontinents analysiert, der nur auf den ersten Blick am Rand der Ereignisse stand, sich aber durch den Flächenbrand in Europa stark veränderte.
