The South Downs is a mountain biker's paradise. Thousands of kilometres of well-maintained byways and bridleways can be combined to create seemingly inexhaustible route combinations. The 26 routes in this book are graded (blue, red and black) for a range of abilities, and grouped into 6 sections: The South Downs Way National Trail (the whole route described in 3 stages) and routes around Winchester, Chichester and Petersfield, Arundel and Worthing, Brighton and Lewes and Eastbourne. They range from 14km to 57km in length and up to 95% off road, providing plenty of challenge for any mountain biker. Many tracks traverse well-drained chalk downland, providing superlative off-road conditions for much of the year. All routes are clearly illustrated on OS maps with numbered stages linking the route descriptions to maps. Extensive information is also included on facilities and services, including bike shops and mechanics, cafes, pubs and food shops, accommodation and transport links and tips on bike gear and preparation.

Ein großes Epos über die Sklaverei – der bekannteste Roman der Nobelpreisträgerin. Sethe - die auf der Flucht aus der Sklaverei ihr Leben riskierte, ihren Mann verlor und ein Kind begraben musste, die unvorstellbares Leid ertrug und dennoch nicht den Verstand verlor - lebt seit langem in einem kleinen Haus am Rande von Cincinnati, wo sie die Vergangenheit auszulöschen versucht. Doch im Haus Nr. 124 der Bluestone Road treibt ein Spuk sein Unwesen: Der widerspenstige Geist von Sethes Tochter, die vor achtzehn Jahren ums Leben kam, will nicht vergessen werden. Das Kleinkind, dessen Tod Sethe nicht überwinden kann, starb namenlos; sein Grab trägt allein das Wort "Menschenkind". Als Paul D eines Tages vor Sethes Tür steht, reißt er alte Wunden wieder auf - und setzt so einen schmerzhaften Heilungsprozess in Gang... „Menschenkind“ wurde von den Juroren der New York Times zum besten amerikanischen Roman der letzten 25 Jahre gewählt.

Ein Roman aus dem Nachlass des großen Roberto Bolaño! Dieser frühe Roman, in dem man die Figuren aus Bolaños gefeiertem Werk Die wilden Detektive wiedererkennen mag, zeigt die Meisterschaft des jungen Autors: seine ungestüme Originalität und den eleganten Bruch mit Erzählkonventionen. Mexiko-Stadt in den Siebzigern: Die jungen Chilenen Remo Morán und Jan Schrella wohnen in einer schäbigen Mansarde und träumen vom Schreiben. Den bürgerlichen Werten entsagen sie, ihre Zeit ist der magische Moment zwischen Nacht und Tag. Während Remo sich rauschhaft treiben lässt, schreibt Jan unentwegt Briefe an seine Lieblings-Science-Fiction-Autoren, darunter Ursula K. Le Guin, Robert Silverberg und James Tiptree jr., mit der Bitte um Hilfe für sein von FBI und CIA unterdrücktes Lateinamerika. Bolaños unbekümmertes Übertreten aller Genregrenzen, seine literarische Spielfreude: In »Der Geist der Science-Fiction« ist schon alles angelegt, was aus Bolaño diesen Ausnahmeschriftsteller gemacht hat.
