Seit über siebzig Jahren verzaubert Ein Baum wächst in Brooklyn weltweit neue Leserinnen und Leser. Dieser Roman über ein Mädchen, das gegen alle Hindernisse anliest, ist nun endlich wieder auf Deutsch erhältlich – eine Geschichte, erfüllt von Lebenslust und Kraft, beseelt von der Euphorie über das Sein. Die elfjährige Francie Nolan ist eine unbändige Leserin, eine Süßigkeiten-Connaisseuse, eine genaue Beobachterin der menschlichen Natur – und sie hat einen Traum: Sie möchte Schriftstellerin werden. Ein Traum, der in dem bunten, ruppigen Williamsburg von 1912 kaum zu erfüllen ist. Hier brummen die Mietshäuser vor all den Zugewanderten, jeden Tag wird von hart verdientem Geld das Essen zusammengeklaubt, Kinder strömen durch die Straßen, um für ein paar Pennies Süßigkeiten zu ergattern. Doch wenn Francie auf der Feuertreppe in der Sonne sitzt und liest, gibt es für sie keinen schöneren Ort. Und wenn sie auch gegen so manche Widrigkeit anschreiben muss, ist sie sich einer Sache gewiss: dass es sich immer lohnt, nach dem puren Leben zu streben.

Betty Smith, the beloved author of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, weaves a riveting modern myth out of the experiences of her own life in this rediscovered classic. In Brooklyn's unforgiving urban jungle, Maggie Moore is torn between answering her own needs and catering to the desirous men who dominate her life. Confronted by her quarrelsome Irish immigrant father, the feckless lover who may become her husband, and others, Maggie must learn to navigate a cycle of loss, separation, and hope as she forges her own path toward happiness. With characteristic warmth, compelling insight, and easy, conversational prose, Maggie-Now poignantly illuminates one woman's struggles and successes as she grapples with timeless questions of desire, duty, self-sacrifice, and the quest for fulfillment. Maggie-Now is an unforgettable masterpiece from one of the twentieth century's greatest talents.

From Betty Smith, author of the beloved American classic A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, comes an unsentimental yet radiant and powerfully uplifting tale of young love and marriage. In 1927, in Brooklyn, New York, Carl Brown and Annie McGairy meet and fall in love. Though only eighteen, Annie travels alone halfway across the country to the Midwestern university where Carl is studying law—and there they marry. But Carl and Annie’s first year together is much more difficult than they anticipated as they find themselves in a faraway place with little money and few friends. With hardship and poverty weighing heavily upon them, they come to realize that their greatest sources of strength, loyalty, and love, will help them make it through. A moving and unforgettable story, Joy in the Morning is “a glad affirmation that love can accomplish the impossible.” (Chicago Tribune)

Annie liebt Carl. Und Carl liebt Annie. Und so verlässt die Achtzehnjährige heimlich die Wohnung ihrer Mutter in Brooklyn und zieht in die kleine Universitätsstadt im Mittleren Westen, wo Carl Jura studiert. Sie lassen sich gegen den Willen ihrer Eltern trauen und genießen das Glück, endlich beisammen zu sein, auch wenn der Alltag Schatten wirft: Sie müssen mit wenig zurechtkommen, Carl hat kaum Zeit, Annie dafür umso mehr. Doch das Leben meint es gut mit ihnen, Annie findet neue Freunde, Carl bessere Nebenjobs, Annie besucht klammheimlich Literaturseminare und hat erste kleine Erfolge als Schriftstellerin. Und obwohl sie wenig besitzen, fühlen sie sich reich, denn sie wissen, worauf es wirklich ankommt: Sie haben einander. Nachdem Betty Smith uns in Ein Baum wächst in Brooklyn mit der Geschichte der kleinen Francie verzaubert hat, beglückt sie uns nun mit einem wunderbar leichten Roman über das große Glück, zu lieben und geliebt zu werden.
A Biographical Dictionary of Actors, Actresses, Musicians, Dancers, Managers & Other Stage Personnel in London, 1660-1800

To be completed in 12 volumes, this monumental work here begins publication with the first two volumes--Abaco to Bertie and Bertin to Byzard. When completed, it is expected that the biographical dictionary will include information on more than 8,500 individuals. Hundreds of printed sources have been searched for this project, and dozens of repositories combed, and the names of personnel listed have been filtered through parish registers whenever possible. From published and unpublished sources, from wills, archives of professional societies and guilds, from records of colleges, universities, and clubs, and from the contributions of selfless scholars, the authors have here assembled material which illuminates theatrical and musical activity in London in the 1660-1800 period. The information here amassed will doubtless be augmented by other specialists in Restoration and eighteenth-century theatre and drama, but it is not likely that the number of persons now known surely or conjectured finally to have been connected with theatrical enterprise in this period will ever be increased considerably. Certainly, the contributions made here add immeasurably to existing knowledge, and in a number of instances correct standard histories or reference works. The accompanying illustrations, estimated to be some 1,400 likenesses--at least one picture of each subject
