Sage Singer ist eine junge Bäckerin. Sie hat ihre Mutter bei einem Autounfall verloren und fühlt sich schuldig, weil sie den Wagen gelenkt hat. Um den Verlust zu verarbeiten, nimmt sie an einer Trauergruppe teil. Dort lernt sie den 90jährigen Josef Weber kennen. Trotz des großen Altersunterschieds haben Sage und Josef ein Gespür für die verdeckten Wunden des anderen, und es entwickelt sich eine ungewöhnliche Freundschaft. Als Josef ihr eines Tages ein lang verschwiegenes, entsetzliches Geheimnis verrät, bittet er Sage um einen schwerwiegenden Gefallen. Wenn sie einwilligt, hat das allerdings nicht nur moralische, sondern auch gesetzliche Konsequenzen. Sage steht vor einem moralischen Dilemma: Denn wo befindet sich die Grenze zwischen Hilfe und einem Vergehen, Strafe und Gerechtigkeit, Vergebung und Gnade?

The Wounded Storyteller

Body, Illness, and Ethics, Second Edition

Author: Arthur W. Frank

Category: Medical

Page: 260

Since it was first published in 1995, The Wounded Storyteller has occupied a unique place in the body of work on illness. Both the collective portrait of a so-called “remission society” of those who suffer from some type of illness or disability and a cogent analysis of their stories within a larger framework of narrative theory, Arthur W. Frank’s book has reached a large and diverse readership including the ill, medical professionals, and scholars of literary theory. Drawing on the work of authors such as Oliver Sacks, Anatole Broyard, Norman Cousins, and Audre Lorde, as well as from people he met during the years he spent among different illness groups, Frank recounts a stirring collection of illness stories, ranging from the well-known—Gilda Radner's battle with ovarian cancer—to the private testimonials of people with cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, and disabilities. Their stories are more than accounts of personal suffering: they abound with moral choices and point to a social ethic. In this new edition Frank adds a preface describing the personal and cultural times when the first edition was written. His new afterword extends the book’s argument significantly, writing about storytelling and experience, other modes of illness narration, and a version of hope that is both realistic and aspirational. Reflecting on both his own life during the creation of the first edition and the conclusions of the book itself, Frank reminds us of the power of storytelling as way to understanding our own suffering.

Forester's forte was in telling stories that people believed, either by suspending disbelief when they knew the story was fictional, or actually believed when they thought he was telling the truth. His most remembered character, Hornblower, is most similar to his own, as improved by careful storytelling of the same kind as went into his autobiographical works and his private life. This pdf version of the original edition with comprehensive index will help you to know his real character.

An astonishing novel about redemption and forgiveness from the “amazingly talented writer” (Huffington Post) and #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult. Some stories live forever . . . Sage Singer is a baker. She works through the night, preparing the day’s breads and pastries, trying to escape a reality of loneliness, bad memories, and the shadow of her mother’s death. When Josef Weber, an elderly man in Sage’s grief support group, begins stopping by the bakery, they strike up an unlikely friendship. Despite their differences, they see in each other the hidden scars that others can’t. Everything changes on the day that Josef confesses a long-buried and shame­ful secret and asks Sage for an extraordinary favor. If she says yes, she faces not only moral repercussions, but potentially legal ones as well. With the integrity of the closest friend she’s ever had clouded, Sage begins to question the assumptions and expectations she’s made about her life and her family. In this searingly honest novel, Jodi Picoult gracefully explores the lengths to which we will go in order to keep the past from dictating the future.

Reisen ist mehr als nur die Überwindung einer Distanz von A nach B. Für viele Menschen ist es die schönste Zeit des Jahres. Für uns ist es mehr als nur ein Job. Jedes Jahr bereisen Millionen von Menschen die Welt. Die Bilder, die Sie von Ihren Reisen einfangen und die Auswahl der Motive unterscheiden sich erheblich von den Auftragsarbeiten unsere Kollegen, den Pressefotografen. Reisende gelangen an Orte, die ein Journalist nie in seinem Leben besuchen würde. Menschen und Themen sind oft ganz persönlicher Natur und dadurch bereits einzigartig. Die meisten Aufnahmen von Hobbyfotografen »verstauben« als Bits & Bites auf irgendeinem Rechner, obwohl sie es doch wert wären, einem breiten Publikum präsentiert und eine Geschichte dazu, erzählt zu werden. In Ausgabe Nr.1 des Storyteller Magazines stellen wir Ihnen den dritten Bildband in der Reihe edition pantravel, Rhodos - Labyrinth der Jahrtausende, vor. Kaum ein historischer Kern einer Stadt auf dieser Welt ist so gut erhalten, wie die Altstadt von Rhodos. Die Herausforderung sollte für den Reisejournalisten Klaus Bötig und den Reiseschriftsteller Carsten darin bestehen, zu den Fotos ihrer Frauen aus einer Mischung aus Fakten und Fantasie eine Story zu entwickeln. Für einen mit äußerster Sorgsamkeit recherchierenden Journalisten wie Klaus Bötig, sind es die in die schweren Quader gemeißelten Wappen oder der Trophäensaal im Großmeisterpalast, welche die Geschichte des Johanniterordens erzählen. Der Schriftsteller, Carsten Dohme, hingegen schickt seine Romanfigur, Richard Boyle, auf einen Rundgang durch die Befestigungsanlagen der wehrhaften Stadt. Der Weg zwischen dem äußeren und inneren Ring des Schutzwalles gehört zu den schönsten und aufregendsten Spaziergängen, die man auf Rhodos unternehmen kann. Bemüht man seine eigene Fantasie oder folgt den Spuren von Richard, wird die Geschichte, die sich hinter den schweren mit Stahlgittern verrammelten Tunneln, Schießscharten und Zugbrücken versteckt, wahrhaft lebendig und man selbst mit seinen Bildern und Gedanken Teil eines Romans. Angereichert wird das E-Book-Magazin durch Links zu Karten, den Fotos aus dem Bildband, Hintergrundinformationen zur Stadt und zum Roman. Außerdem erfahren Sie, wie Sie selbst und Ihre Bilder Teil eines Romans werden können.

“Blood and fire, gold and steel and poetry, a river’s voice in the silence of the night, and the shining strings of a harp – all these and more I have known in my time... Now they are all gone, the men and women I knew when I was young, gone like words on the wind, and I am left here in the twilight to tell you their tale. Sit, then, and listen if you will to the words of Gwernin Kyuarwyd, called Storyteller...” So begins the tale of the young Gwernin’s adventures as a wandering storyteller and would-be bard in the chaos and contradictions of 6th century Britain. Along the way he encounters allies and enemies both human and supernatural, finds love and friendship, and learns the lore - and the true meaning - of a Bard’s profession.

From Ezra Jack Keats 2015 New Illustrator Honor recipient Evan Turk comes his debut work as author-illustrator: an original folktale that celebrates the power of stories and storytelling. Long, long ago, like a pearl around a grain of sand, the Kingdom of Morocco formed at the edge of the great, dry Sahara. It had fountains of cool, refreshing water to quench the thirst of the desert, and storytellers to bring the people together. But as the kingdom grew, the people forgot the dangers of the desert, and they forgot about the storytellers, too. All but one young boy, who came to the Great Square for a drink and found something that quenched his thirst even better: wonderful stories. As he listened to the last storyteller recount the Endless Drought, and the Glorious Blue Water Bird, he discovered the power of a tale well told. Acclaimed illustrator Evan Turk has created a stunning multidimensional story within a story that will captivate the imagination and inspire a new generation of young storytellers.

At a small gallery in Florence, a Peruvian writer happens upon a photograph of a tribal storyteller deep in the jungles of the Amazon. He is overcome with the eerie sense that he knows this man...that the storyteller is not an Indian at all but an old school friend, Saul Zuratas. As recollections of Zuratas flow through his mind, the writer begins to imagine Zuratas's transformation from a modern to a central member of the unacculturated Machiguenga tribe. Weaving the mysteries of identity, storytelling, and truth, Vargas Llosa has created a spellbinding tale of one man's journey from the modern world to our origins, abandoning one in order to find meaning in both.
