In Exorcising Hitler, Frederick Taylor tells the story of Germany´s year zero and what came after. Not since the end of the Roman Empire, almost 1500 years earlier, is there a parallel, in Europe at least, to the fall of the German nation in 1945. As Taylor describes the final Allied campaign, the hunting down of the Nazi resistance, the vast displacement of peoples in central and eastern Europe, the attitudes of the conquerors, the competition between Soviet Russia and the West, the hunger and near starvation of a once proud people, the initially naive attempt at expunging Nazism from all aspects of German life and the later more pragmatic approach, we begin to understand that despite almost total destruction, a combination of conservatism, enterprise and pragmatism in relation to former Nazis enabled the economic miracle of the 1950s. And we see how it was only when the ´60s generation (the children of the Nazi era) began to question their parents with increasing violence that Germany began to awake from its sleep cure. 1.

The murder of Millroad Catholic Academy´s resident genius Aaron Nguyen shuts down student life at the boarding school in rural North Carolina... for about a week. With the resilience of youth, the student body bounces back, and the memory of murder is nothing but a streamer of caution tape fluttering in the breeze. Unfortunately for them, Aaron´s spirit has some resilience as well. The school priest´s exorcism fails, and before long Aaron is breathing chills down the students´ necks and hurling Bunsen burners at nuns. Georgia Collins doesn´t give a shit about ghosts. All she wants is a story to prove her underground school news blog is more than a gossip column, closure on her one-sided relationship with her best friend Hiroki, and a vanilla latte. She wasn´t expecting Aaron Nguyen´s death to be anything more than a cold spot in the science hall, but since Hiroki has the curse of Spectral Sight, he is the only person who can see and speak to Aaron. As the ghost´s demands for attention become increasingly violent, Hiroki wants Georgia to help him investigate the crime, claiming that Aaron isn´t likely to budge until his killers are caught. Still hoping for spontaneous romantic combustion, she agrees to help bring Aaron´s murderers to justice and set the vengeful spirit free... but it´s not quite the close encounter she´s hoping for. 1.

Becoming Moon is a coming-of-age story about a young man struggling to be himself amid pressure from a repressive family. Following his dream of becoming a writer, he turns from everything he knows and enters adulthood embittered, angry, and resentful. As he struggles to make a name for himself, he is presented with the opportunity of a lifetime. Although it requires a betrayal of his principles as an artist, he resigns himself to what appears to be fate. The compromise brings money and recognition, but these are fleeting, and he soon finds himself caught in a web of depression and financial hardship. Desperate, the writer begins taking trips to Michigan´s Upper Peninsula, where he hopes to reconnect with his muse. During one of these excursions, he meets Nigel Moon, a grizzled author nearing the end of his career. Moon gives the writer a second golden opportunity and the chance to prove himself in the face of personal doubts - but only if the writer is able to set his past aside. Hart´s stripped-down prose brings the listener into direct contact with the story and its characters. Equal parts witty and dark and wry and tragic, the text uses simplicity as its focus. Raw and honest, Becoming Moon is an unforgettable story about exorcising past demons and finding personal redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Freeman.
