Die Lebensgeschichte der heute (2009) 90 Jahre alten Lisa Hoffman liest sich wie ein Roman - so wild, turbulent, dramatisch und tragisch ging es zu. 1919 wurde sie in München als Kind jüdischer Eltern geboren. Als sie zehn Jahre alt war, zog die Familie nach Frankfurt. Zwei Wochen vor Kriegsbeginn emigrierte Lisa als knapp 20-jähriges "naives Kind" nach England, wo sie als Hausmädchen arbeitete. Ihre Eltern und ihren Bruder sah sie nie wieder, denn sie wurden später bei dem Versuch, aus Deutschland in die Schweiz zu fliehen, an der Grenze erschossen. Von ihrer Mutter blieb ihr nicht einmal ein Foto. 1946 dann der große Schritt - sie emigrierte in die USA. Und erlebte erstmals, dass sie nicht die verhasste Jüdin oder "feindliche Deutsche" war - die jüdische Gemeinde in New York nahm die praktisch mittellose Lisa Hoffman freundlich auf und half ihr bei der Beschaffung von Papieren und der Arbeitssuche. 1954 lernte sie bei einem Stammtisch an der Upper East Side den ebenfalls exilierten deutschen Schriftsteller Oskar Maria Graf kennen, und wurde schon bald - obwohl noch mit dem Maler Raymond Kanelba liiert - dessen Geliebte. Es folgte eine etwa ein Jahr dauernde stürmische und leidenschaftliche Affäre - "er war besessen von schwarzer Seidenwäsche", erinnert sich Lisa Hoffman. "Prinzessin" nennt Graf seine Lisa und lässt sie sogar mitten in der Nacht im Taxi im schwarzen Seidenkleid zu ihm kommen. Letztendlich scheiterte die Beziehung, wie Lisa Hoffman sagt, an Grafs "schwer erträglichem Geltungsbedürfnis", ab 1955 war ihr Verhältnis nur noch platonisch. Lisa Hoffman, die in New York als Korrespondentin der Schweizer Illustrierten arbeitete, führte ihr wildes und unkonventionelles Leben weiter, auf das sie heute in "Fräulein Hoffmans Erzählungen" zurückblickt. "Mein Vater hatte einen Bierkrug, auf dem stand 'Singen, Trinken und Lieben ist das Schönste hienieden' - das passt auch ganz gut auf mein Leben!"

Charlestown is a fictional story about the plight of Boston Taxi Cab drivers in the early 1980's and their struggle to form a Union as their answer to achieving better earnings and working conditions. Harry Sharpstone, Union organizer, is dispatched by the Teamster's Union of Chicago to orchestrate this union organization. Conflict, coalitions and struggle result. Is resolve achieved? Typically, Management and Unions never achieve permanent resolve, just a temporary platform for a truce. The coalitions are the Taxi Cab owners and Taxi Medallion owners who are frequently from Charlestown and the North End and are supported by the enforcement of local Mafia types associated with known racketeer Raymond Patriarca of Providence Mafia fame. Since the issuance of these valuable Taxi Medallions is controlled by Boston Chief of Police Bratton he may be lending favor to the owners. The other faction is the Taxi Cab Drivers. They are supported by the efforts of the Teamsters which is ruled by James Hoffa, State Senate President Billy Bulger, who is known to favor the struggle of the blue collar worker, and Billy's brother, Whitey Bulger, the suspected leader of the Winter Hill Gang and rackets in South Boston. When these two factions clash over the power struggle between the Taxi Cab Medallion owners and the Taxi Cab Drivers the situation ranges from intense to combustible. Local political and social culture creates a distinct Boston flavor as the story twists, turns and unfolds Relax and enjoy for as long you can. You may find yourself sliding to the edge of your seat not sure of how you got there.

Raymond LaCasse has just completed his studies in Paris and is on his way home to the French Caribbean island of Martinique. Little does he know that sharing a taxi with a beautiful stranger will change his life in ways he can't even imagine. Long after she's collected her belongings and left the taxi they'd shared to the airport, he can't get her out of his mind. He continues to wonder, who was that gorgeous woman? He wishes he could have spent a longer time in her company. He gets his wish, but not in the way he's imagined. Gabrielle Descotte, a model by profession, loves her brother dearly and would do anything for him, even agreeing to assist him in a daring, but illegal, feat. When she meets his intended target, Raymond LaCasse, she swiftly has a change of heart. She now has to choose, her brother or the man who occupies her thoughts every waking moment to the exclusion of all else. Divided by loyalties and bound by a desire that drives them into each other's arms, Raymond and Gabrielle find themselves in a convoluted web of deceit and danger that almost destroys their new-found love and tears them apart....

Praise for Innocence; or, Murder on Steep Street An NPR Best Book of 2015 'A luminous testament from a dark time,  Innocence is at once a clever  hommage to Raymond Chandler, and a portrait of a city—Prague—caught and held fast in a state of Kafkaesque paranoia. Only a great survivor could have written such a book.' —John Banville 'The great draw of  Innocence; or, Murder on Steep Street is the menacing view it gives us of communist Prague . . . Kovály channels Chandler but takes him into a landscape far, far away from wide-open L.A.' —Maureen Corrigan, NPR's Fresh Air 'An extraordinary novel . . . A remarkable work of art with the intrigue of a spy puzzle, the irony of a political fable, the shrewdness of a novel of manners, and the toughness of a hard-boiled murder mystery.' —Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal 'A sharp, moving indictment of Soviet-style communism, and of any ideology that relies on fear to subdue.' —Minneapolis Star-Tribune 'The plot is easy to envision as film noir . . . As for innocence, the woman who went to hell twice wants her readers to know that there is no such thing.' —The Times Literary Supplement 'There is a great deal over which to marvel in  Innocence: or, Murder on Steep Street. The narrative is riveting. The art of its telling is powerful. And the back story to its publication is itself worthy of recounting: a testament to the author’s steely will to hallow memory and, in so doing, bring a semblance of balance to history’s often skewed scales of justice.' —Canadian Jewish News 'Purely Chandleresque.' —Toronto Star “Kovály's prose carries echoes of Albert Camus' novels . . . Yet, Innocence is astonishingly—and brilliantly—written as a thriller in the style of Raymond Chandler, an author Kovály hugely admired. The mean streets her characters tread are infinitely more treacherous than the dark blocks of Los Angeles but she creates a plot packed with surprise, a character-driven, murderous matrix that sustains an amoral universe in an all-too-convincing story.” —The Jewish Chronicle 'A fantastic homage to Chandler.' —The Strand Magazine 'Neither the Nazis nor the Communists could silence her . . . [ Innocence] reflects with great insight and accuracy on a Kafkaesque world that unfolded in Communist Czechoslovakia in the 1950s.' —The Virginia Gazette 'The novel’s best aspect is its portrayal of time and place. Fear fills Prague and its residents’ hearts in the 1950s; no one can trust anyone. With many scenes occurring at nighttime, a sense of darkness spreads as the story unfolds.' —San Antonio Express-News 'Innocence stands as a singular addition to the genre... With this character-driven, philosophical mystery, Kovály has taken her experience and combined it with the vocabulary of classic crime fiction to create something that is engagingly familiar, yet all her own.' —Rain Taxi 'A remarkable story that combines cultural and political observations with crime fiction. It is a testimony to the most brutal times of the 20th century.' —Lake Placid News 'A lost classic . . . In Innocence nobody can claim to be very innocent.' —Dayton Daily News 'An uncensored look at crime in communist Czecholosovakia... I highly recommend.' —Fresh Fiction 'Intense and powerful.' —Crimespree Magazine 'An intriguing reimagining of the crime genre in the context of Prague in the 1950s. Kovály does take from Chandler a focus on the real conditions of the lives of her contemporaries, but Kovály’s Prague in 1952, under Soviet totalitarianism, is a very different place than Chandler’s 1940s Los Angeles, under corrupt, bankrupt capitalism . . . In the trivializing of evil lies the link between Kovály’s Holocaust memoir and  Innocence, as well as the dark undertone that makes her crime novel so distinctive and powerful
