Four novels of humor, sex, mystery, and horror from the National Book Award-winning author of Becoming a Man.

Taking Care of Mrs. Carroll: Mrs. Beth Carroll has tragically passed away. Now, it is up to the unlikely team of her lover, Phidias; her houseboy, David; David's ex-boyfriend Rick; and a kitschy former screen goddess to protect Mrs. Carroll's Cape Cod estate from lawyers, greedy developers, and her family in this madcap caper.

The Gold Diggers: A historic Hollywood mansion seemed like the perfect place for Rita to take time away from her exhausting life and catch up with her old friend Peter and his lover, Nick. She just wasn't counting on there being buried treasure beneath the house-or said treasure being key to their survival . . .

The Long Shot: When celebrity heiress Vivien Cokes finds her husband dead of an apparent double suicide in the hot tub with his male lover, something doesn't add up. To find the truth, she must team up with the lover's boyfriend and descend into Los Angeles's underbelly.

Lightfall: A strange voice orders Iris Ammons to leave her idyllic life behind and move to the west coast to the village of Pitts Landing. The same voice calls upon cult leader Michael Roman. As coincidences and omens begin piling up, Iris and Michael find themselves in a dark mystery centuries in the making . . .
Paul Monette (1945-1995) was an author, poet, and gay rights activist. Born in Massachusetts and educated at Yale University, he moved with his partner Roger Horwitz to Los Angeles in 1978 and became involved in the gay rights movement. Monette's writing captures the sense of heartbreak and loss at the center of the AIDS crisis. His first novel, Taking Care of Mrs. Carroll, was published in 1978, and he went on to write several more works of fiction, poetry, and memoir. Borrowed Time: An AIDS Memoir, the tender account of his partner's battle with the disease, earned him both PEN Center West and Lambda literary awards. In 1992, Monette won the National Book Award in Nonfiction for Becoming a Man: Half a Life Story, an autobiography detailing his early life and his struggle with his sexuality. Written as a classic coming-of-age story, Becoming a Man became a seminal coming-out story. In 1995, Monette founded the Monette-Horwitz Trust, which honors individuals and organizations working to combat homophobia. Monette died in his home in West Hollywood in 1995 of complications from AIDS.

Dateiformat: ePUB
Kopierschutz: Wasserzeichen-DRM (Digital Rights Management)

Systemvoraussetzungen:

Computer (Windows; MacOS X; Linux): Verwenden Sie eine Lese-Software, die das Dateiformat EPUB verarbeiten kann: z.B. Adobe Digital Editions oder FBReader - beide kostenlos (siehe E-Book Hilfe).

Tablet/Smartphone (Android; iOS): Installieren Sie bereits vor dem Download die kostenlose App Adobe Digital Editions (siehe E-Book Hilfe).

Das Dateiformat ePUB ist sehr gut für Romane und Sachbücher geeignet - also für "fließenden" Text ohne komplexes Layout. Bei E-Readern oder Smartphones passt sich der Zeilen- und Seitenumbruch automatisch den kleinen Displays an. Mit Wasserzeichen-DRM wird hier ein "weicher" Kopierschutz verwendet. Daher ist technisch zwar alles möglich - sogar eine unzulässige Weitergabe. Aber an sichtbaren und unsichtbaren Stellen wird der Käufer des E-Books als Wasserzeichen hinterlegt, sodass im Falle eines Missbrauchs die Spur zurückverfolgt werden kann.
