The year: 1956. Eddie Lowery, once caddie to Francis Ouimet, now a wealthy car dealer and avid supporter of amateur golf, boasts to fellow millionaire George Coleman that two of his salesmen - US amateur champion Harvie Ward and up-and-coming star Ken Venturi - could beat any golfers in the world in a best ball match. Coleman asks Lowery how he plans to prove it. 'Bring any two golfers of your choice to the course tomorrow morning,' Lowery tells him, 'and we'll settle the issue.' Coleman shows up all right - with Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, the game's greatest living professionals. In Mark Frost's peerless hands, complete with the recollections of all the participants, the story of this foursome and the greatest private match ever played comes vividly to life.

Joseph Helfgot, the son of Holocaust survivors, worked his way from a Lower East Side tenement to create a successful Hollywood research company. But his heart was failing. After months of waiting for a heart transplant, he died during the operation. Hours after his death, his wife Susan was asked a shocking question: would she donate her husband’s face to a total stranger? The stranger was James Maki, the adopted son of parents who spent part of World War II in an internment camp for Japanese Americans. Rebelling against his stern father, a professor, by enlisting to serve in Vietnam, he returned home a broken man, addicted to drugs. One night he fell facedown onto the electrified third rail of a Boston subway track. A young Czech surgeon who was determined to make a better life on the other side of the Iron Curtain was on call when the ambulance brought Maki to the hospital. Although Dr. Bohdan Pomahac gave him little chance of survival, Maki battled back. He was sober and grateful for a second chance, but he became a recluse, a man without a face. His only hope was a controversial face transplant, and Dr. Pomahac made it happen. In The Match, Susan Whitman Helfgot captures decades of drama and history, taking us from Warsaw to Japan, from New York to Hollywood. Through wars and immigration, poverty and persecution, from a medieval cadaver dissection to a stunning seventeen-hour face transplant, she weaves together the story of people forever intertwined—a triumphant legacy of hope.

Denise und Roberta, zwei Frauen, kurz vor dem Verfallsdatum, ergreifen das Wort. Sie hätten nicht einmal etwas dagegen, wenn Big Brother oder andere Geheimdienste zuhören würden, während sie sich über Gott und die Welt, ihre Mitmenschen und diverse Ärgernisse des Lebens auslassen. Manchmal sind ihre Äußerungen kryptisch, manchmal ausufernd. Selten politisch korrekt. Beziehungsprobleme, Ausbruchsfantasien, Sorgen mit den flügge gewordenen Kindern, beruflich schon fast auf der Abschussrampe, immer wieder kurz davor, sich von ihren jüngeren Mitarbeiterinnen und Kollegen überflügeln oder für dumm verkaufen zu lassen. Aber die beiden geben nicht auf. Sie kämpfen hartnäckig, manchmal augenzwinkernd, zeitweilig bissig und gemein, um ihre menschliche Würde und Selbstachtung nicht zu verlieren. Die beiden sind einerseits Freundinnen, was sie andererseits nicht daran hindert, Zickenkriege zu führen.

Es ist Juni 2014. Menschen, Autos und Geschäfte sind mit schwarz-rot-goldenen Farben geschmückt. Die Euphorie über die Fußball-Weltmeisterschaft hat die Kleinstadt Bad Mooring fest im Griff. Hierhin kehrt Gregor wieder zurück. Einiges hat sich während seiner Abwesenheit verändert und auch er selbst ist nicht mehr der, der er einmal war. Nachdem, was mit seiner Familie passierte, verließ er vor acht Jahren Hals über Kopf seine Heimat und seine damalige Freundin. Die Schuldgefühle von damals scheinen geheilt zu sein. Doch eine Sache ist immer noch offen: Ein Kuss, den er all die Jahre nicht vergessen konnte. Ein Kuss von einem Mann. Ines Schmidts Liebesgeschichte beschreibt den Selbstfindungsprozess eines jungen Mannes in einer emotionalen Achterbahn. Mitten in der Männerdomäne Fußball. Dort, wo Homosexualität ein Tabuthema ist, sucht ein Mann den Mann fürs Leben. Es ist ein Spiel um Sieg und Niederlage, um ausscheiden oder weiterkommen. Das beiliegende Rezept "Selbstgemachte Pommes Frites mit Tomatenchutney und Mango-Curry-Soße" passt nicht nur hervorragend zu einem Fußballabend. Es weckt auch Erinnerungen an ein Sommermärchen, das wieder auflebt.
