Paul Hollywood is Britain's favourite master baker. His new book is all about bread - how to make it and how to use it. But while it's all very well making a lovely loaf of bread, can you guarantee that it won't be wasted? You know those times when you have a lovely crusty loaf, fresh from the oven, and you have a horrible feeling that after the initial excitement is over, half of it's going to get pushed aside and not eaten...? Well, maybe it's time to bring bread back into mealtimes for real. Not only does Paul teach you exactly how to make a variety of breads, but for each one there is a spin-off recipe that shows you how to make a fantastic meal of it. The book has six chapters, each with five bread recipes - plus the spin-off recipes for main courses. Not only are Paul's recipes delicious but they are also foolproof, with comprehensive step-by-step photographs. Try your hand at a basic white bloomer, which can become a savoury picnic loaf; stilton and bacon rolls, which are excellent served with celery soup; fluffy crumpets, which become the base for eggs Benedict; flatbreads, which are a natural pairing with chickpea masala; ciabatta, which the Italians have traditionally used as a base for tomatoey panzanella; pizza bases, which can become home-made fig, Parma ham and Gorgonzola pizzas; or white chocolate and raspberry bread, which makes for the best summer pudding you've ever tasted. Tying in with the BBC2 television series, Paul Hollywood's Bread is all that you could want from a book and more. Get baking!

Vom Kampf einer Frau um Freiheit – mit Leichtigkeit und Leidenschaft erzählt Jamaika, Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Sie war einst Haussklavin auf der Zuckerplantage Amity und hat bewegte Zeiten hinter sich. Nun, viele Jahre nachdem sich ihre Brüder und Schwestern die Freiheit mit Blut erkauften, drängt es die inzwischen betagte Miss July ihrem Sohn, einem angesehenen Verleger, die Geschichte ihres Lebens zu offenbaren – und ihm zu erklären, warum sie gezwungen war, ihn als Säugling auf den Stufen einer Pfarrei auszusetzen. So beginnt sie mit großer Lust am Fabulieren von jener Zeit zu erzählen, als sie die rechte Hand der Missus auf der Plantage war. Bis der junge Goodwin seine Arbeit als Aufseher aufnahm und für July ein Leben unter anderen Vorzeichen anfing. Die unvergessliche Geschichte einer Emanzipation und zugleich ein erschütternder Bericht über die letzten Tage der Sklaverei, dargeboten von einer Ich-Erzählerin, die uns aufschreien lässt gegen die Unmenschlichkeit, die uns aber immer auch mit ihrem Lachen versöhnt. Denn sie führt uns vor Augen, welche Kräfte der Glaube an Veränderung wecken kann, welche Kraft die Freiheit birgt.

Bejubelt und verdammt: Das Buch weltweit Aufsehen erregte Über der englischen Küste wird ein Flugzeug in die Luft gesprengt. Die einzigen Überlebenden dieses Terroranschlags sind Gibril Farishta und Saladin Chamcha, zwei indische Schauspieler, die buchstäblich vom Himmel fallen und wie durch ein Wunder unversehrt bleiben. Doch nach dem Absturz gehen seltsame Dinge mit ihnen vor: Der Muslim Gibril zeigt immer mehr Ähnlichkeit mit dem Erzengel Gabriel, während sich Saladin, der stets seine Herkunft verleugnete, zu einem Abbild des Teufels entwickelt. Doch das ist erst der Beginn einer überwältigenden Odysee zwischen Gut und Böse, zwischen Fantasie und Realität.
