These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Boss of Taroomba: Look inside the book: Over his very head, indeed, the red-bearded man was signalling maliciously to a youth who with coarse fat face and hands was mimicking the performer in the middle of the room; while the youngest man of the lot, who wore spectacles and a Home-bred look, giggled in a half-ashamed, half-anxious way, as though not a little concerned lest they should all be caught. ...Had he heard a conversation which took place in the station-yard later that night, but only a little later, and while the full moon was in much the same place, the piano-tuner might have gone to sleep instead of lying awake to flagellate his own meek spirit; though it is more likely that he would have lain quietly awake for very joy. About E. W. (Ernest William) Hornung, the Author: Hornung spent most of his life in England and France, but in December 1883 left for Australia, arrived in 1884 and stayed for two years where he worked as a tutor at Mossgiel station in the Riverina. 1 Although his Australian experience was brief, it influenced most of his literary work from A Bride from the Bush published in 1899, to Old Offenders and a few Old Scores, which was published after his death.

Arthur George. »Dieser Roman zeigt Julian Barnes auf dem Höhepunkt seines Könnens.« P.D. James Zwei Männer, geprägt vom ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert in Großbritannien, begegnen sich in einer entscheidenden und dramatischen Phase ihres Lebens: Arthur Conan Doyle, der Erfinder von Sherlock Holmes, und George Edalji, ein kleiner Provinzanwalt. Julian Barnes schildert sie auf faszinierende Weise vor dem Hintergrund ihrer Zeit. Arthur und George könnten unterschiedlicher nicht sein. Der eine, aus niederem schottischen Adel stammend, wird Augenarzt, dann ein erfolgreicher Schriftsteller und einer der berühmtesten Männer seiner Zeit. Der andere, braves Kind eines anglikanischen Dorfpfarrers indischer Herkunft, wird ein kleiner Rechtsanwalt in Birmingham. Beide sind sie zutiefst den Konventionen und Ehrvorstellungen ihrer Epoche verhaftet, Arthur leidet zudem unter einer schwierigen Liebesbeziehung. Ihre Wege kreuzen sich, als Arthur ein einziges Mal in seinem Leben in die Rolle des Sherlock Holmes schlüpft, um George zu helfen, der Opfer eines skandalösen, rassistisch motivierten Justizirrtums geworden ist. Das Verfahren wird wieder aufgerollt. Arthur gelingt es, Georges Ehre zu retten. Arthur & George stand wochenlang auf den Bestsellerlisten in England und den USA sowie auf der Shortlist für den Man Booker Prize 2005.
