»Reading gives us the greatest happiness. Books are always there for us, and if you read, you should not be in a hurry. When a book touches our heart, it has something to say to us that no one else has ever said to us.« (Max Kruse)
With the Alphabet of Little Pleasures Max Kruse gives us an inspiring companion which we will always wish to keep at hand. From A to Z this popular author selects a word for every letter of the alphabet which describes a “pleasure” in life and fills the concept with thoughts and perceptions.
Twenty-six thought-provoking sections full of wisdom and wit will intrigue readers or make them ponder, lead them to linger and wonder and sometimes even discover new territory. Whether it is beginning or kiss, memory or trying that we are faced with, like a door we simply have to open, silence or whistling, which has become so rare nowadays, friendship or youth, wishing or tenderness – which is for Kruse the most beautiful word in German and sometimes more impor-tant even than love – this extraordinary book throws light on the things that make life more beautiful. Reading it enriches us, and reminds us that the little pleasures are ultimately the most important.
A book that makes a wonderful gift, that invites the reader to linger and enjoy. By an author who is very well-known to the book trade. An inspiring companion for every single day – produced to the highest standards.
