We are living in an age in which the relationship between reading and space is evolving swiftly. Cutting-edge technologies and developments in the publication and consumption of literature continue to uncover new physical, electronic, and virtual contexts in which reading can take place. In comparison with the accessibility that has accompanied these developments, the medieval reading experience may initially seem limited and restrictive, available only to a literate few or to their listeners; yet attention to the spaces in which medieval reading habits can be traced reveals a far more vibrant picture in which different kinds of spaces provided opportunities for a wide range of interactions with and contributions to the texts being read. Drawing on a rich variety of material, this collection of essays demonstrates that the spaces in which reading took place (or in which reading could take place) in later medieval England directly influenced how and why reading happened.

‘Made me cry so many times … A beautiful, heartbreaking yet uplifting wonderful story.’ This Chick Reads A year to forget. The perfect escape. And a little Christmas magic… Touching, uplifting, and filled with delicious French cooking, The French for Christmas is the perfect Christmas treat. Evie used to LOVE Christmas, but this year she can’t wait for the tinsel and presents to be a distant memory. When her best friends offer the use of their cottage in the beautiful French countryside, Evie jumps at the chance. With her soon-to-be-ex-husband, celebrity chef Will Brooke, plastered over the news with his latest ‘love interest’, leaving the country seems like the perfect plan. Armed with her French grandmother’s tattered notebook of recipes, Evie is determined to ignore Christmas altogether and bake herself back to happiness. And when Evie meets her next-door neighbour – the très gorgeous doctor Didier she finds a very willing taste-tester. But is it possible that he could be interested in more than just her Tarte Tatin? With snow falling, a special Réveillon dinner and a little Christmas magic in the air, could Didier even be the one to thaw Evie’s heart? Or will a visit from the ghost of Christmas past change everything? What people are saying about The French for Christmas ‘So very real, so tragic, my heart absolutely ached … A heart-warming and truly beautiful Christmas book.’ 5/5 Paris Baker’s Book Nook ‘One of my favourite stories I have read this year… A truly superb novel. 5/5.’ Chloe’s Chick Lit Reviews ‘A truly wonderful novel … touching, inspiring and heart-warming … an absolute must on your holiday reading list. 5/5 Stars.’ Living Life with Joy ‘Just beautiful … I was transported to a Christmas wonderland and I didn't want to leave!

The setting is wonderful and the snow and winter weather give it a fairytale like atmosphere … such a lovely Christmas story.’ Librarian Lavender ‘Beautiful descriptions of the idyllic French house and area … mouth-watering descriptions of the beautiful food … a wonderful Christmas read. It has everything you could want from a book for this time of year.’ Best Crime Books and More ‘I found myself talking out loud, muttering and cursing … Fiona had given me characters that I had connected with, that had strength and depth who I found I really cared about.’ Crooks on Books ‘This book made me cry … Another great and emotional read with Christmas cheer, Christmas spirit.’ French Village Diaries ‘Truly idyllic … everything we love about the Christmas season. A beautiful read!’ M’s Bookshelf ‘I absolutely adored this charming, thought provoking story… I felt really Christmassy reading this! The main part of the story is set during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, the setting is gorgeous and the food sounds delicious. Alongside all the festive-ness there is also a more serious underlying storyline to this novel which makes it truly touching and extremely gripping. All in all the perfect wintry-night-by-the-fire read.’ Bookaholic Confessions ‘This was a lovely, cozy read which would be perfect for reading during those cold winter months.’ Books and Book Ends ‘Our main character Evie was a little treasure who has had a heartbreaking time recently and I found myself routing for her hoping for a happy ending for her… This was a great read with a lovely festive touch.’ Rea’s Book Review

»Hari vereint präzise Recherche mit einer zutiefst menschlichen Erzählung. Dieses Buch wird eine dringend notwendige Debatte auslösen.« Glenn Greenwald Der Krieg gegen die Drogen gilt inzwischen als gescheitert, der Handel mit Drogen ist ein blühendes Geschäft, alle Maßnahmen gegen den Konsum sind weitgehend erfolglos. Woran liegt das? Der britische Journalist Johann Hari begibt sich auf eine einzigartige Reise – von Brooklyn über Mexiko bis nach Deutschland – und erzählt die Geschichten derjenigen, deren Leben vom immerwährenden Kampf gegen Drogen geprägt ist: von Dealern, Süchtigen, Kartellmitgliedern, den Verlierern und Profiteuren. Mit seiner grandiosen literarischen Reportage schreibt Hari sowohl eine Geschichte des Krieges gegen Drogen als auch ein mitreißendes und streitbares Plädoyer zum Umdenken. »Hervorragender Journalismus, packend erzählt.« Naomi Klein »Phantastisch!« Noam Chomsky
