Hun giver Richard og deres mislykkede ægteskab skylden for, at hun ikke fik levet drømmen om at blive jazzpianist ud og i stedet er endt som klaverlærerinde for mere eller mindre talentfulde elever.Efterhånden som Richards sygdom skrider frem, og han ikke længere kan klare sig selv, må Karina beslutte sig for, hvilken rolle hun vil spille i hans sidste tid. Er det muligt at lægge mange års bitterhed til side og opnå en form for forsoning, inden det er for sent? Og kan Richard slutte fred med sin far, der aldrig har anerkendt sin søns valg af karriere? Og få tilgivelse af sin datter, der er vokset op med en far, der elskede sit klaver højere end hende? 1. Danish.

Ein Brief, der mit 33 Jahren Verspätung sein Ziel erreicht, stellt Alains ruhiges Leben auf den Kopf. Er ist Arzt und hat die fünfzig überschritten, seine Frau betrügt ihn, die Kinder sind längst aus dem Haus - trotzdem ist er eigentlich ganz zufrieden. Doch eines Morgens liegt in der Post ein Plattenvertrag für Alains Band The Hologrammes - von 1983. Alain wird zurückgeworfen in eine Zeit, als er und seine Band um ein Haar berühmt geworden wären, als noch alles möglich schien. Er macht sich auf die Suche nach den anderen Bandmitgliedern - und findet einen erfolgreichen, aber verbitterten Künstler, dessen Freundin Alain ein vieldeutiges Lächeln schenkt, einen Präsidentschaftskandidaten und einen populistischen Politiker. Nur die Sängerin, die schöne Bérangère, in die Alain heimlich verliebt war, scheint zunächst verschwunden... Humorvoll und mit feinem Gespür für Nostalgie erzählt Antoine Laurain von vergessenen Lieben, verlorenen Freundschaften und verpassten Chancen - die plötzlich neues Glück versprechen. 1.

For fans of The Danish Girl, an extraordinary transgender love story about self-belief and the true nature of courage. Best friends since childhood, life takes very different courses for Will and Tom when they leave school. Tom joins the army to become a man. Will goes to university and discovers he´s not. When Tom turns up on Will´s doorstep almost 10 years later, he´s disillusioned and broken after surviving Northern Ireland during the 1970s troubles, and with a broken marriage and no future. Will, on the other hand, has just embarked on a completely new future for himself - in his case, a very different kind of self; a woman called Billie. As Will transitions from male to female, so the boyhood friendship between Tom and Will changes too. Initial shock and repulsion on Tom´s part becomes grudging respect, and eventually something quite different. But life - and falling in love - is never that simple; and especially not when it´s in the face of prejudice, fear, and lost courage. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Groves.

First published in 1910, Howards End is considered by many to be Forster´s greatest novel. Set at the beginning of the 20th century it follows the fortunes and interrelations between three family groups of differing backgrounds and outlooks. At the top of the money tree are the Wilcoxes who represent broadly materialism and an upper-class English archetype. The family has made money in the colonies and also have a property - Howards End - owned by the terminally-ill mother, Ruth Wilcox, who must decide how best to pass on the estate. A decision that triggers much of the novel´s ensuing conflict, scandal and tragedy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susannah Harker.

Considered by many to be E. M. Forster´s greatest novel, Howards End is a beautifully subtle tale of two very different families brought together by an unusual event. The Schlegels are intellectuals, devotees of art and literature. The Wilcoxes are practical and materialistic, leading lives of ´´telegrams and anger´´. When the elder Mrs. Wilcox dies and her family discovers she has left their country home - Howards End - to one of the Schlegel sisters, a crisis between the two families is precipitated that takes years to resolve. Written in 1910, Howards End is a symbolic exploration of the social, economic, and intellectual forces at work in England in the years preceding World War I, a time when vast social changes were occurring. In the Schlegels and the Wilcoxes, Forster perfectly embodies the competing idealism and materialism of the upper classes, while the conflict over the ownership of Howards End represents the struggle for possession of the country´s future. Forster refuses to take sides in this conflict. Instead he poses one of the book´s central questions: In a changing modern society, what should be the relation between the inner and outer life, between the world of the intellect and the world of business? Can they ever, as Forster urges, ´´only connect´´? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steven Crossley. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/001639/bk_tant_001639_sample.mp3.

E.M. Forster´s Howards End is a vivid portrait of London´s golden age, before World War I forever changed its values and culture. Forster brings the great city´s upper classes to life, detailing their grandiose spending habits, popular fads, Monet and Debussy, the rise of feminism, and the beginnings of urbanization. More than a mere idealization of pre-war London, Howards End provides insightful commentary on the rapid societal changes that occurred at the onset of the 20th century. Masterfully blending the stories of three vastly different groups of people - the independently wealthy, educated Schlegels; the nouveau riche Wilcoxes; and the ambitious but struggling Leonard Bast - Forster weaves a wonderfully rich, unforgettably poignant novel. 1.
