In the late sixteenth century, the French royal court was mobile. To distinguish itself from the rest of society, it depended more on its cultural practices and attitudes than on the royal and aristocratic palaces it inhabited. Using courtly song-or the air de cour-as a window, Jeanice Brooks offers an unprecedented look into the culture of this itinerant institution. Brooks concentrates on a period in which the court's importance in projecting the symbolic centrality of monarchy was growing rapidly and considers the role of the air in defining patronage hierarchies at court and in enhancing courtly visions of masculine and feminine virtue. Her study illuminates the court's relationship to the world beyond its own confines, represented first by Italy, then by the countryside. In addition to the 40 editions of airs de cour printed between 1559 and 1589, Brooks draws on memoirs, literary works, and iconographic evidence to present a rounded vision of French Renaissance culture. The first book-length examination of the history of air de cour, this work also sheds important new light on a formative moment in French history.

Wem kannst du trauen, wenn du dir selbst nicht traust? Als Robert Walter, der beliebte Bürgermeister von Amsterdam, auf einem Neujahrsempfang seine Frau dabei beobachtet, wie sie sich angeregt mit seinem Erzfeind und politischen Gegner unterhält, ist ihm sofort klar: Die beiden müssen ein Verhältnis haben. Auch in seinem weiterem Umfeld tun sich plötzlich Abgründe auf, wobei sich nicht sicher sagen lässt, was real ist und was seiner eigenen Phantasie entspringt. Mit scharfem Blick und bissigem Humor zeichnet Herman Koch in seinem neuen Roman das Bild eines Getriebenen, der nicht eher ruht, bis er den Ast, auf dem er sitzt, auch wirklich durchgesägt hat. Robert Walter ist ein erfolgreicher Mann. Er ist Bürgermeister von Amsterdam beliebt, jovial und volksnah. Er ist mit einer Südländerin verheiratet, die beiden haben eine fast erwachsene Tochter. Aber Robert Walter traut dem Glück nicht. Vielleicht trügt ja der schöne Schein? Vielleicht hat Gattin Sylvia eine Affäre? Ausgerechnet mit seinem Konkurrenten, dem sterbenslangweiligen Maarten van Hoogstraten? Robert kann es nicht lassen, immer wieder kreisen seine Gedanken um diese Frage. Jedes noch so kleine Detail im Verhalten seiner Frau und des angeblichen Nebenbuhlers wird geradezu manisch begutachtet und interpretiert. Auch sonst läuft es nicht gerade rund für Robert: Seine hochbetagten Eltern kündigen an, trotz guter Gesundheit selbstbestimmt aus dem Leben zu scheiden, eine Journalistin wühlt in Roberts Vergangenheit und fördert Skandalöses zutage.Von politischen Verstrickungen über Eifersucht und Misstrauen bis hin zu Sterbe-Hilfe: Bestseller-Autor Herman Koch lässt in seinem neuen Roman kein aktuelles Thema, kein gesellschaftliches Tabu aus: ein echter Koch eben. »Herman Koch ist in kürzester Zeit einer meiner Lieblingsautoren geworden.« Stephen KingDer neue Roman des internationalen Bestsellerautors von »Angerichtet« (verfilmt als »Das Dinner« u.a. mit Richard Gere) und »Sommerhaus mit Swimmingpool«
