With a mix of homegrown talent and All-Star signings, the 2009 Yankees comprised the best of the best, from young up-and-comers to future Hall of Famers. With the previous season's failed playoff bid still as fresh as the paint job on the new Yankee Stadium, a 27th championship flag represented both the floor and the ceiling in the eyes of a squad which would mend clubhouse fractures, witness scandals and redemptions, and ultimately carve out a unique spot among the Yankees' pantheon of World Series teams. It was the last title for the "Core Four"--Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, and Andy Pettitte--who would each retire over the course of the next five years. It would be the lone title for Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, A.J. Burnett, and Nick Swisher, each of whom saw memorable peaks and valleys during their time in the Bronx. For CC Sabathia and Brett Gardner, it was their first championship, though the veterans were still in pinstripes as the latest generation of Yankees arrived for what they hope will be the next dynasty. Mission 27 is a thoroughly reported examination of an unforgettable season, packed with interviews with the full cast of key players, team executives, broadcasters, and more. Sportswriters Bryan Hoch and Mark Feinsand offer an unparalleled, inside-the-clubhouse account of both transcendent milestones and day-to-day deliberations on the road to October, making for a detailed and engrossing retrospective no Yankees fan should miss.

In seiner Rede anlässlich der Verleihung des Nobelpreises für Literatur gibt Bob Dylan erstmals umfassend Einblick in seine literarischen Einflüsse und die Ursprünge seines Songwritings. Woher stammen die mythologischen Anspielungen in seinen Texten, woher die manchmal fast biblischen Gleichnisse? Welche Bücher haben seine Einstellung zum Leben geprägt? Und wo hat er die speziellen Ausdrucksweisen, Jargons, Kunstgriffe und Techniken gelernt? Neben dem prägenden Einfluss von Buddy Holly sowie der Country-, Blues- und Folkmusik der späten 50er und frühen 60er Jahre mit ihrer von spezieller Mundart geprägten Lyrics fließen vielfältige literarische Motive in seine Texte ein: die biblische Symbolik in Moby Dick, die Drastik eines Kriegsromans wie Im Westen nichts Neues, aber vor allem das Motiv der Reise aus der Odyssee als universeller, menschlicher Grundverfassung. Aus diesem Bodensatz heraus schuf Bob Dylan, wie er selber sagt, Lyrics, wie sie noch niemand zuvor gehört hatte.

Großartige Essays von Zadie Smith, »einer der wichtigsten literarischen Stimmen unserer Zeit« (Die Welt). Zadie Smith ist nicht nur Autorin vieler hochgelobter Romane, sondern sie brilliert auch besonders in dieser kurzen Form, den Essays. Der vorliegende Band zeigt sie politischer denn je, denn Zadie Smith hat viel zu sagen über die zunehmend bedrohliche Verfasstheit der Welt und der Gesellschaft und bezieht sehr persönlich Stellung. Die Essays sind in fünf Kategorien unterteilt, und alle haben es in sich: »In der Welt« versammelt die politischen Essays, und gerade ihre Gedanken zum Brexit und zu Trump sind vielschichtig und erhellend, authentisch und engagiert. Die Kapitel »Im Publikum«, »Im Museum«, »Im Bücherregal« und »Freiheiten« erzählen uns ihre Sicht auf kulturelle Ereignisse oder persönlich Erlebtes und geben dabei immer ganz viel über sie selbst preist. Da sie sich mit schlechter Politik, guten Büchern, amerikanischen Rappern, Facebook und alten Meistern ähnlich gut auskennt, schreibt sie mit leichter Hand und mal böse, mal bewundernd Essays von besonderer Qualität, die uns die Welt schärfer sehen lassen. Ein Muss für jeden politisch denkenden Leser!
