Die Welt verstehen, ohne einen Fuß vor die Tür zu setzen Was bleibt nach der „Geschichte von fast allem“ eigentlich noch zu schreiben? Die Geschichte von fast allem anderen, natürlich. Bill Bryson hat sich daher in seinen vier Wänden umgesehen und sich gefragt: Warum leben wir eigentlich, wie wir leben? Warum nutzen wir ausgerechnet Salz und Pfeffer, und weshalb hat unsere Gabel vier Zinken? Aber es bleibt nicht bei Geschichten von Bett, Sofa und Küchenherd. Die Geschichte des Heims ist auch immer eine der großen Entdeckungen und Abenteuer. Ohne die Weltausstellung in London hätte man vermutlich das Wasserklosett nicht so schnell zu schätzen gelernt. Und ohne die großen Entdecker müssten wir wohl ohne Kaffee, Tee oder Kakao auskommen. Bill Bryson zeigt uns unser Heim, wie wir es noch nie gesehen haben. Und wir verstehen ein wenig mehr, warum es so ist, wie es ist.

Harlem Love Story: eine junge Liebe gegen die Willkür einer weißen Justiz »Jeder in Amerika geborene Schwarze ist in der Beale Street geboren. Die Beale Street ist unser Erbe. Dieser Roman handelt von der Unmöglichkeit und von der Möglichkeit, von der absoluten Notwendigkeit, diesem Erbe Ausdruck zu geben. Die Beale Street ist eine laute Straße. Es bleibt dem Leser überlassen, aus dem Schlagen der Trommeln den Sinn herauszuhören.« James Baldwin Dies ist die Geschichte von Tish und Fonny, 19 und 22, und ihrem Kampf gegen die Willkür einer weißen Justiz. Der traurig-schöne Song einer jungen Liebe, voller Wut und doch voller Hoffnung. Ist das Gefängnissystem die Fortsetzung der Sklaverei unter anderen Vorzeichen? Beale Street Blues von James Baldwin strahlt grell in unsere Gegenwart.

So you want to decorate every nook and cranny in every room of your home with foliage or flowers. Maybe you just want to take care of the dish garden, African violet, or green, leafy thing that used to have flowers. You got a plant for your anniversary, for Mother's Day or from the funeral and don't know what to do with it. I can help. Can you think of any other activity you can do, in any weather, twelve months a year, at any age, regardless of physical limitation, whether you live alone or with someone? Can you name any other living thing that has been proven, both medically and scientifically, to enhance your surroundings, decrease blood pressure and stress, while cleaning the very air you breathe? Whether you want to recreate the Puerto Rican rainforest in your living room or just add a few accents to spice up your decor, houseplants can do it all. You could move your teenager to the garage so you can use his bedroom as a greenhouse, and that might not be a bad idea. Transforming the second bathroom into your very own seed-starting hothouse is probably out of the question, but adding bloomin' color to the dining room table or a topiary to the buffet is a great first step that can lead to who knows where. You say you've always wanted an orchid? You'll find that they are not as difficult and mysterious as you thought. Yes, even you can raise an orchid! So how can houseplants create this wonderful environment in your home? It is both cheap and easy. You just need to know how, and that is what this book is all about."
