'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

Girl with the Golden Eyes and Other Stories Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'What holds sway over this country without morals, beliefs, or feelings? Gold and pleasure.' Sexual attraction, artistic insight, and the often ironic relationship between them is the dominant theme in the three short works collected in this volume. In Sarrasine an impetuous young sculptor falls in love with a diva of the Roman stage, but rapture turns to rage when he discovers the reality behind the seductiveness of the singer's voice. The ageing artist in The Unknown Masterpiece, obsessed with his creation of the perfect image of an ideal woman, tries to hide it from the jealous young student who is desperate for a glimpse of it. And in The Girl with the Golden Eyes, the hero is a dandy whose attractiveness for the mysterious Paquita has an unexpected origin. These enigmatic and disturbing forays into the margins of madness, sexuality, and creativity show Balzac spinning fantastic tales as profound as any of his longer fictions. His mastery of the seductions of storytelling places these novellas among the nineteenth-century's richest explorations of art and desire. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Fifteen-year-old Hanka Kaudersova has ginger hair and clear, green eyes. When her family is deported to Auschwitz, her mother, father and younger brother are sent to the gas chamber. By a twist of fate, Hanka is faced with a simple alternative: follow her family, or work in an SS brothel behind the eastern front. She chooses to live, her Aryan looks allowing her to disguise the fact that she is Jewish. As the German army retreats from the Russian front, Hanka battles cold, hunger, fear and shame, sustained by her hatred for the men she entertains, her friendship with the mysterious Estelle, and her fierce, burning desire for life. Lovely Green Eyes explores the compromises and sacrifices that an individual may make in order to survive, the way a woman can retain her identity in the face of appalling trauma, and the value of human life itself.

Night Voices: Heard in the Shadow of Hitler and Stalin ISBN: 9780773526068 Autor: Laskey Heather      Rok wydania: 2004-02-28 Ilość stron: 192 Oprawa: twarda Format: 233 x 152 mm "Night Voices" tells the little-known story of young Polish Jewish idealists, survivors of the Holocaust, who chose to support Poland's post-war communist government in the belief that socialism offered the path to a more just society. It is the story of Poland in the years leading up to the war, the horrors Polish Jews faced during the Nazi occupation, the brief period of hope when they believed they were building a better society, and their gradual disillusionment as state sponsored corruption, brutality, Stalinist paranoia, and anti-Semitism developed. The story is told through the memories of four people, Stasia Alapin Rubilowicz, her husband Mietek Rubilowicz, her son Peter Alapin, and her friend Alina. Life in Poland before and during the war is seen primarily through Stasia's eyes, who evokes her youth in an affluent family, largely assimilated into Polish society. This life was shattered forever in her early adulthood when the Nazis invaded, bringing death and destruction to Poland and to Polish Jews in particular. She recounts the anguish of life in the Warsaw Ghetto, her escape from it, her survival on the run, her betrayal to the Gestapo by a woman who had known her at school, and her rescue from prison by Christian Polish friends at the risk of their lives. In the second half of the book we are introduced to Mietek and her friend Alina, who describe their experiences in Poland during and after the war and their hopes that communism would rid the country of bigotry injustice, and want. But as old hatreds, now supported by a perverted catechism of socialist dogma, reawakened anti-Semitism they became increasingly disillusioned, ultimately deciding they had no recourse but to leave Poland and start a new life elsewhere. By 1968 the Polish communist leadership, through a campaign of intimidation and harassment, had succeeded in ridding Poland of virtually all its surviving Jews.Night Voices is a testimony both to the strength of the human spirit and to our capacity for self-delusion.

Extracto: Reedición de 2009: Ten es el álbum debut de estudio de la banda de rock alternativo estadounidense Pearl Jam, lanzado el 27 de agosto de 1991 por la discográfica Epic Records. Después de la ruptura de la anterior banda del bajista Jeff Ament y el guitarrista Stone Gossard, Mother Love Bone, ambos reclutaron al vocalista Eddie Vedder, al guitarrista Mike McCready y al batería Dave Krusen para formar Pearl Jam en 1990. La mayoría de las canciones del grupo comenzaron como jam sessions instrumentales, a los que Vedder ańadió letras sobre temas como la depresión, gente sin hogar o los abusos. Ten no fue un éxito inmediato, pero a finales de 1992 llegó al puesto número dos de la lista Billboard 200 de Estados Unidos. Se extrajeron tres sencillos del álbum: "Alive", "Even Flow" y "Jeremy". Aunque a la banda se le acusó de subirse al tren del éxito de la música grunge, Ten tuvo un papel decisivo en popularizar el rock alternativo en el mainstream. El álbum ha sido certificado platino trece veces por la RIAA en los Estados Unidos y sigue siendo el álbum más exitoso de Pearl Jam. El guitarrista Stone Gossard y el bajista Jeff Ament tocaban juntos en una pionera banda de grunge llamada Green River. Después de la disolución de Green River en 1987, Ament y Gossard tocaron juntos en Mother Love Bone a finales de los ańos 1980. La carrera de Mother Love Bone se vio truncada por la muerte por sobredosis de su cantante Andrew Wood en 1990, poco antes del lanzamiento de su álbum debut, Apple. Debido a esto, Gossard y Ament tardaron meses en volver a querer tocar juntos, además de hacer que la música de Gossard de los meses siguientes se volviera más oscura que la previa. Después de unos meses, Gossard comenzó a practicar con el guitarrista de Seattle Mike McCready, cuya banda Shadow acababa de disolverse; McCready fue quién animó a Gossard a volver a tocar con Ament. Los tres decidieron entrar al estudio para grabar unas sesiones instrumentales con el batería de Soundgarden, Matt Ca

Nine Lives of Otto Katz BANTAM PAPERBACKS

"Spies should be glamorous - James Bond in a Savile Row suit rather than Harry Palmer in a grubby mac ...In those terms, Otto Katz was perfect. He was a Hollywood playboy who hobnobbed with Fritz Lang, he inspired the character of Victor Laszlo in Casablanca, he was a drinking buddy of Bertolt Brecht and among his lovers he claimed Marlene Dietrich. He was even known to Noel Coward". ("The Times"). If you were to imagine the perfect spy, you may well be picturing Otto Katz. He was charming, suave, and utterly ruthless. In the golden years of the spy game, from Hitler's rise to power, through the Second World War, and on into the Cold War, Otto Katz was at the centre of Russia's web of international intrigue. His fingerprints can be found on one world changing event after another. Using recently released FBI, MI5 and Czech files, Jonathan Miles has created an action-packed story of the life (or lives) of one of the world's most successful spies. At the same time, he paints a vivid portrait of the shadow world that exists behind the headlines where the actions of a man like Katz can, and do, change the course of history.

Being a Girl with Glasses isn't just a style choice; it's a way of life. If you've ever had your specs steam up when walking into a bar, squinted into the sun on the soccer field, or laid eyes on a new haircut only after your locks are strewn across the floor, you know what it's like to be a GWG. Marissa Walsh has worn glasses since third grade. Now -- ten pairs of glasses, one pair of prescription sunglasses, and endless pairs of contacts later -- she has fully embraced her four-eyed fate. As she recounts her optic history through the lenses of each pair of glasses -- from the Sergio Valentes and the Sally Jessy Raphaels to the pseudo John Lennons and the dreaded health plan specs -- at last she found them . . . the perfect pair. Marissa's comic look at a life behind glass is at once a poignant personal journey and a wry, canny exploration of just what it means to be a glasses-wearing kind of girl. Peppered with pop culture references and complete with appendixes of resources, classic GWG moments, and helpful tips on finding the right frames for your face, Girl with Glasses will give you reason to commiserate with your shortsighted sisters and celebrate your less-than-perfect vision.
