Persönlich betroffen beim Fund einer Wasserleiche, gewinnt Polizeihauptkommissar Werner Drews den Eindruck, dass die herbeigezogenen Kollegen von der Kripo allzu schnell bereit seien, den Fall zu den Akten zu legen. Zusammen mit einigen Freunden, insbesondere mit Willi, einem ehemaligen Fremdenlegionär, versucht Drews die für ihn selbst so wichtigen Hintergründe des Falles zu klären. Die Bekanntschaft mit einer Wissenschaftlerin, die an einem geheimen Projekt arbeitet, macht ihm klar, dass die heimische Wirtschaft und Industrie immer wieder den Attacken von Wirtschaftsspionage und Datenklau ausgesetzt ist. Die Entführung eines Rechtsanwalts schließlich bringt die Freunde auf die richtige Spur. Mit einem Augenzwinkern und getragen von den Songtiteln bekannter Bluesstücke beschreibt der Autor den Ablauf der Ermittlungen vor dem Hintergrund der oberbayrischen Kleinstadt Burghausen. Die Stadt lebt und erhält ihren Charme durch den allgegenwärtigen Kontrast zwischen mittelalterlichen Wurzeln, bedeutsamen, innovationsfreudigen Industrieniederlassungen und einem hervorragenden Freizeitangebot. So läuft während der Bemühungen der Freunde um Aufklärung des Falles gerade die seit über vierzig Jahren alljährlich veranstaltete Internationale Jazzwoche ab, und offenbar beleben nicht nur viele Musikliebhaber und sonstige Touristen das Straßenbild, was die Ermittlungen nicht gerade einfacher gestaltet.

Das Wort »Gespür« bezeichnet die Fähigkeit, einen verborgenen, nicht deutlich sichtbaren Sachverhalt gefühlsmäßig zu erfassen. Ungeklärt ist jedoch bis heute, warum gerade Gedichte – etwa Goethes Ein Gleiches – das Spüren immer wieder artikuliert haben. Gedichte erspüren die Gefühlswelt der Tiere, die Dämmerung, die abwesende Geliebte, den Bewusstseinsrausch, die Verlogenheit der Leute oder die drückende Last schuldbesetzter Geschichte. Lyrisches Gespür erfasst die Elemente wie die Existenz, soziale Stimmungen wie feinste Atmosphären, die Präsenz des Vergangenen wie die Signale des Kommenden. Diese Affinität zwischen Spüren und Sprechen ist bisher wohl in der Philosophie, nicht aber in den Literaturwissenschaften bemerkt worden. Das vorliegende Buch holt dies nach, indem es die vergessene Kategorie der »Stimmungslyrik« zur Analyse des Gespürs aktualisiert. Es zeigt dabei auch, dass sich »Stimmungslyrik« nicht wie seit Hegel üblich auf die »Innerlichkeit« der Romantik reduzieren lässt. Das stimmungsmäßige Erspüren situativer Atmosphären kennzeichnet vielmehr schon Brockes Irdisches Vergnügen in Gott, aber auch die biedermeierlich-realistische Naturdichtung, die impressionistische Stimmungslyrik der Moderne, die großstädtische Lyrik des Expressionismus, die hermetische Lyrik der Nachkriegszeit oder die Alltagslyrik der 1970er Jahre.

Twelve year old Drew Holiday knows only what she’s been told—that when she was seven, an explosion destroyed her house, killed her parents and injured her so that she cannot recall her life before that fateful night. Adopted into another family, she enjoys life as a classical guitar prodigy, of which great accomplishments are expected. But the appearance of a blind street singer named Doboro, introduces her to the blues and the infectious sound of bottleneck guitar. Inexplicably drawn to the sound and the cigar box guitar he plays, it isn’t long before she, against all good sense, asks the enigmatic drifter to teach her his method. After a rough and tense introduction, he agrees and thus begins her daily lessons. But as they begin to build together her own cigar box guitar, and their familiarity grows, so does the mystery and danger that surrounds Doboro, drawing out of the shadows assassins bent on his destruction. And hers.

Swing is back in style, and with it a renewed interest in the Big Band Era. And few players dominated that era more than Harry James, whose soaring trumpet solos and romantic hit tunes influenced popular music for a generation. Now, Peter J. Levinson, who knew Harry James personally, has written a revealing biography of this jazz icon, based on nearly 200 interviews with musicians and friends. Harry James led a truly colorful life, and in Trumpet Blues Levinson captures it all. Beginning with James's childhood in a traveling circus, we follow the young trumpeter's meteoric rise in the 1930s and witness his electrifying performances with the Benny Goodman Orchestra. We see how James formed his own band in 1939, an incubator for many pop music stars of the 1940s and '50s, including Frank Sinatra, Connie Haines, Dick Haymes, Helen Forrest, and Kitty Kallen. Combined with James's superb musicianship, peerless trumpet technique and talented sidemen, this stellar group dominated the war years and the immediate post-war period. And James himself, especially after his marriage to film goddess Betty Grable, became one of America's most famous personalities and lived like true Hollywood royalty. Levinson describes their twenty-two-year marriage with insight and sympathy. But he shows how James's marriage--and his triumphant late-1950s comeback in Nevada's casinos--were slowly undermined by his penchant for compulsive gambling, womanizing, and alcoholism. He gives us the inside story of James's sybaritic life style, and probes the profound psychological reasons for James's destructive behavior. The first biography ever written on Harry James, Trumpet Blues is a scintillating portrait of Swing's brightest star--his life, his loves, and the music that defined an era.

This groundbreaking book chronicles the history of sickle cell anemia in the United States, tracing its transformation from an "invisible" malady to a powerful, yet contested, cultural symbol of African American pain and suffering. Set in Memphis, home of one of the nation's first sickle cell clinics, Dying in the City of the Blues reveals how the recognition, treatment, social understanding, and symbolism of the disease evolved in the twentieth century, shaped by the politics of race, region, health care, and biomedicine. Using medical journals, patients' accounts, black newspapers, blues lyrics, and many other sources, Keith Wailoo follows the disease and its sufferers from the early days of obscurity before sickle cell's "discovery" by Western medicine; through its rise to clinical, scientific, and social prominence in the 1950s; to its politicization in the 1970s and 1980s. Looking forward, he considers the consequences of managed care on the politics of disease in the twenty-first century. A rich and multilayered narrative, Dying in the City of the Blues offers valuable new insight into the African American experience, the impact of race relations and ideologies on health care, and the politics of science, medicine, and disease.
