Blue Monday is the thrilling first novel in Nicci French's top-ten bestselling killer new series introducing psychotherapist Frieda Klein *** Monday: five-year-old Matthew Faraday is abducted. His face is splashed across newspaper front pages. His parents and the police are desperate. Can anyone help find their little boy before it is too late? Psychotherapist Frieda Klein just might know something. One of her patients describes dreams of seizing a boy who is the spitting image of Matthew. Convinced at first the police will dismiss her fears out of hand, Frieda reluctantly finds herself drawn into the heart of the case. A previous abduction, from twenty years ago, suggests a new lead - one that only Frieda, an expert on the minds of disturbed individuals, can uncover. Struggling to make sense of this terrifying investigation, Frieda will face her darkest fears in the hunt for a clever and brutal killer . . . Praise for Nicci French: 'Nicci French's sophisticated, compassionate and gripping crime novels stand head and shoulders above the competition. No one understands human psychological frailty better. No one writes better about grief, love, fear or emotional damage. Not many books are as insightful as they are addictive; Nicci French's are,' Sophie Hannah 'A brilliantly crafted new crime series' Daily Mirror 'Terrific. The writing is pacy, the jaw-dropping twists are plentiful' Short List 'One of French's hardest-to-put-down novels' Sunday Express 'French is undeniably at the top of British psychological suspense writing, expert in the unguessable twist, supremely skilled at ratcheting up the tension' Observer 'A nerve-jangling and addictive read' Daily Express

Being a teenager can be a difficult job, something the adult world can never understand. While to her parents and teachers getting Adam Ant tickets is no big deal, to Bleu L. Finnegan it means everything. This could be the defining moment of her life, and there is no guarantee that she will ever achieve it. On the way, Bleu must deal with the travails of adolescence - from prank-playing, porn-addicted boys to sexist-pig radio disc jockeys to trying to figure out how to show that dreamy substitute teacher that she's his perfect mate. It all culminates on that fateful night when Bleu and her best friend, Clover, go to the club and try to get in at any cost! Nothing will bar Bleu from the pop idol of her dreams! Collects the debut mini-series as well as the various short stories that preceded it in independent comic book anthologies.

While many think of Elvis Presley as rock ’n’ roll’s driving force, the truth is that Fats Domino, whose records have sold more than 100 million copies, was the first to put it on the map with such hits as “Ain’t That a Shame” and “Blueberry Hill.” In Blue Monday, acclaimed R&B scholar Rick Coleman draws on a multitude of new interviews with Fats Domino and many other early musical legends to create a definitive biography of not just an extraordinary man but also a unique time and place: New Orleans at the birth of rock ’n’ roll. Coleman’s groundbreaking research makes for an immense cultural biography, and is the first to convey the full scope of Fats Domino’s impact on the popular music of the twentieth century.

Chi ha detto che il lunedì è il giorno più deprimente della settimana? Sembra un lunedì come tanti, per Lucy Green: sveglia all'alba dopo un weekend di lavoro e metro talmente affollata che a malapena si riesce a respirare. Sembra un lunedì come tanti, ma non lo è. Perché il destino le fa incontrare Ben Turner. Ben è affascinante, gentile, misterioso. E, soprattutto, non è costretto a rispettare i ritmi frenetici imposti dall'agenzia pubblicitaria di Londra per cui lavora Lucy; lui coglie l'attimo, si rilassa, si diverte. E propone a Lucy di scendere alla prossima stazione e di lasciarsi andare, anche solo per poche ore. Per quanto le sembri assurdo, lei non può negare l'attrazione dirompente che prova per quell'uomo, né il brivido che sente quando lui le sfiora la mano: ascolterà la voce della ragione, rassegnandosi a un altro grigio lunedì, o seguirà il cuore, assaporando le sorprese che la vita può offrire? L'appuntamento con «Blue Mondays 2» vi aspetta lunedì 23 giugno.

Have you ever wondered how one day the media can assert that alcohol is bad for us and the next unashamedly run a story touting the benefits of daily alcohol consumption? Or how a drug that is pulled off the market for causing heart attacks ever got approved in the first place? How can average readers, who aren't medical doctors or Ph.D.s in biochemistry, tell what they should be paying attention to and what's, well, just more bullshit? Ben Goldacre has made a point of exposing quack doctors and nutritionists, bogus credentialing programs, and biased scientific studies. He has also taken the media to task for its willingness to throw facts and proof out the window. But he's not here just to tell you what's wrong. Goldacre is here to teach you how to evaluate placebo effects, double-blind studies, and sample sizes, so that you can recognize bad science when you see it. You're about to feel a whole lot better.

Dieses Buch bietet zum erstenmal eine zusammenhängende Darstellung der Etymologie von historischen und gegenwartssprachlichen lexikalisierten Farbwortverbindungen. Untersuchungsgegenstand sind Phraseologismen wie blauer Montag 'freier Montag, Fastnachts-, Karmontag', Gründonnerstag'Donnerstag der Karwoche', blau sein 'betrunken sein', rot sehen 'wütend werden', satzförmige Phraseologismen wie Grün ist die Hoffnung, Phraseologismen anderer Sprachen wie ndl. Iem. eene blauwe huik omhangen 'jmd. betrügen', ndl. Blauwboekjes 'Schmähschriften', frz. conte bleu 'Lüge', Lehnübersetzungen wie blaues Blut aus span. sangre azul 'Adel' oder Blaustrumpf aus engl. blue stocking 'intellektuelle Frau' und ausgestorbene Phraseologismen wie blaue Ente 'Lüge'.Im Zentrum der Arbeit steht die Frage, wie das Farbadjektiv, ausgehend von der Gesamtbedeutung der Farbwortverbindung, zu seiner Bedeutung gekommen ist. Weshalb bedeutet blau in blauer Montag 'arbeitsfrei' und blau in blaues Blut'adelig'? Um die Motivation von Benennungen zu erschließen, wird zunächst ermittelt, wann und in welcher Quelle sich die Bezeichnung zum erstenmal nachweisen läßt und welche Bedeutung sich aus dem Belegkontext ergibt. Anhand kulturgeschichtlicher und sprachlicher Angaben ist schließlich die Klärung der Herkunft undurchsichtig gewordener Benennungen möglich.Durch ein Wortregister kann die Arbeit als Nachschlagewerk für Farbwortverbindungen dienen. Da neben der linguistischen Analyse kulturgeschichtliche Zusammenhänge miteinbezogen werden, ist dieses Buch nicht nur für die Sprachwissenschaft, sondern auch für die Literaturwissenschaft, Volkskunde, Kunst- und Rechtsgeschichte interessant.For the first time, this book offers a coherent representation of the etymology of historical and contemporary lexicalised idioms involving colour. The investigation covers idioms such as blauer Montag, meaning 'Monday off, Monday of carnival week', Gründonnerstag,'Thursday of Holy Week', blau sein, 'to be drunk', rot sehen,'to get angry', idioms in sentence form such as Grün ist die Hoffnung,idioms from other languages, such as the Dutch iem. eene blauwe huik omhangen,'to deceive someone', Blauwboekjes, 'defamatory writings', the French conte blue,'lie', loan translations such as blaues Blut from the Spanish sangre azulmeaning 'noble' or Blaustrumpf from the English blue stockingmeaning 'intellectual woman' and obsolete idioms such as blaue Ente meaning a 'lie'. The work focuses on the question as to how the colour adjective went from the overall meaning of the colour word to take on its new meaning. Why does blau mean 'no work' in blauer Montag and 'noble' in blaues Blut? In order to determine the motivation of the expressions, the first stage was to ascertain when and in what source evidence of the phrase was first found, and what meaning could be deduced from the context of the document. It is then possible to clarify the origin of what are now unfathomable phrases on the basis of cultural, historical and linguistic information. There is an index which means the work can be used a source of reference for colour idioms. As there are cultural and historical contexts as well as purely linguistic analysis, this book is not only useful for language scientists, but also for the study of literature, folklore and the history of art and the law.
