NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Wonderfully tender and hilariously funny, Eligible tackles gender, class, courtship, and family as Curtis Sittenfeld reaffirms herself as one of the most dazzling authors writing today. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR AND THE TIMES (UK) This version of the Bennet family--and Mr. Darcy--is one that you have and haven't met before: Liz is a magazine writer in her late thirties who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help--and discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling and the family is in disarray. Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their CrossFit workouts and Paleo diets to get jobs. Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master's degree and barely leaves her room, except for those mysterious Tuesday-night outings she won't discuss. And Mrs. Bennet has one thing on her mind: how to marry off her daughters, especially as Jane's fortieth birthday fast approaches. Enter Chip Bingley, a handsome new-in-town doctor who recently appeared on the juggernaut reality TV dating show Eligible. At a Fourth of July barbecue, Chip takes an immediate interest in Jane, but Chip's friend neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy reveals himself to Liz to be much less charming. . . . And yet, first impressions can be deceiving. Praise for Eligible "Even the most ardent Austenite will soon find herself seduced."--O: The Oprah Magazine "Blissful . . . Sittenfeld modernizes the classic in such a stylish, witty way you'd guess even Jane Austen would be pleased."--People (book of the week) "[A] sparkling, fresh contemporary retelling."--Entertainment Weekly "[Sittenfeld] is the ideal modern-day reinterpreter. Her special skill lies not just in her clear, clean writing, but in her general amusement about the world, her arch, pithy, dropped-mike observations about behavior, character and motivation. She can spot hypocrisy, cant, self-contradiction and absurdity ten miles away. She's the one you want to leave the party with, so she can explain what really happened. . . . Not since Clueless, which transported Emma to Beverly Hills, has Austen been so delightedly interpreted. . . . Sittenfeld writes so well--her sentences are so good and her story so satisfying. . . . As a reader, let me just say: Three cheers for Curtis Sittenfeld and her astute, sharp and ebullient anthropological interest in the human condition."--Sarah Lyall, The New York Times Book Review "A clever, uproarious evolution of Austen's story."--The Denver Post "If there exists a more perfect pairing than Curtis Sittenfeld and Jane Austen, we dare you to find it. . . . Sittenfeld makes an already irresistible story even more beguiling and charming."--Elle "A playful, wickedly smart retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice."--BuzzFeed "Sittenfeld is an obvious choice to re-create Jane Austen's comedy of manners. [She] is a master at dissecting social norms to reveal the truths of human nature underneath."--The Millions "A hugely entertaining and surprisingly unpredictable book, bursting with wit and charm."--The Irish Times "An unputdownable retelling of the beloved classic."--PopSugar

Jane Austens spannender Roman neu übersetzt Catherine Morland ist für Jane Austen eine ungewöhnliche Romanheldin: zwar ist sie jung und tugendhaft, aber weder ausnehmend schön noch besonders elegant, und als Tochter eines Geistlichen keine sonderlich gute Partie. Ihr Hauptinteresse gilt Büchern und deren Figuren und entsprechend naiv verhält sie sich im realen Leben. Bald aber lernt auch sie, auf ihre Gefühle zu hören und verwandelt sich in eine liebenswürdige junge Frau, die die Männerwelt verzaubert. Ihr Herz schlägt für den gebildeten, wohlerzogenen Henry Tilney, dessen Schwester sie auf den Landsitz der Familie einlädt. Doch die Aura des alten Anwesens Northanger Abbey beflügelt Catherines Phantasie: sie glaubt, einem düsteren Familiengeheimnis auf die Spur gekommen zu sein.

Armut und Chaos, Resignation und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: In diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA – entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft und damit anfällig für die einfachen Lösungen von Populisten. Früher konnten sich die „Hillbillys“, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter etwa aus Ohio oder Kentucky, erhoffen, kraft ihrer Arbeit zu bescheidenem Wohlstand zu kommen. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien auch die Arbeiterfamilien in eine Abwärtsspirale, aus der die meisten bis heute keinen Ausweg finden. J. D. Vance ist es anhand der Geschichte seiner Familie wie keinem anderen gelungen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.

Spannend und emotional erzählt sie in dieser Dystopie die Geschichte der 17-jährigen Celestine, die darum kämpft, etwas anderes sein zu dürfen als perfekt. Celestines Leben scheint perfekt: Sie ist schön, bei allen beliebt und hat einen unglaublich süßen Freund. Doch dann handelt sie in einem entscheidenden Moment aus dem Bauch heraus. Und bricht damit alle Regeln. Sie könnte im Gefängnis landen oder gebrandmarkt werden – verurteilt als Fehlerhafte. Denn Fehler sind in ihrer Welt nicht erlaubt. Nichts geht über die Perfektion.

Phase I trials are a critical first step in the study of novel cancer therapeutic approaches. Their primary goals are to identify the recommended dose, schedule and pharmacologic behavior of new agents or new combinations of agents and to describe the adverse effects of treatment. In cancer therapeutics, such studies have particular challenges. Due to the nature of the effects of treatment, most such studies are conducted in patients with advanced malignancy, rather than in healthy volunteers. Further, the endpoints of these trials are usually measures adverse effects rather than molecular target or anti-tumor effects. These factors render the design, conduct, analysis and ethical aspects of phase I cancer trials unique. As the only comprehensive book on this topic, Phase I Cancer Clinical Trials is a useful resource for oncology trainees or specialists interested in understanding cancer drug development. New to this edition are chapters on Phase 0 Trials and Immunotherapeutics, and updated information on the process, pitfalls, and logistics of Phase I Trials
