Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Anais Nin, Anne Frank and Sylvia Plath wrote the world's most famous diaries. And where are they today? Dead. But the world's OTHER great diarist, Joan Rivers, is alive and kicking. And complaining.§§In the extraordinary tradition of The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor and George Orwell's Diaries , comes an intimate and enriching glimpse into the mind of the most illuminating woman-of-letters of her Generation - the provocative exploration of an age in which she has lived on and on and on and on.§§Now in paperback, following up the phenomenal success of her headline-making New York Times bestseller I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me , the unstoppable Joan Rivers is at it again. When her daughter Melissa gives her a diary for Christmas, at first Joan is horrified who the hell does Melissa think she is? That fat pig, Bridget Jones? But as Joan, being both beautiful and introspective, begins to record her day-to-day musings, she realizes she has a lot to say.§§About everything. And everyone, God help them. §§The result? A no-holds-barred, delightfully vicious and always hilarious look at the everyday life of the ultimate diva. Follow Joan on a family vacation in Mexico and on trips between New York and Los Angeles where she mingles with the stars, never missing a beat as she delivers blistering critiques on current events, and excoriating insights about life, pop culture, and celebrities (from A to D list), all in her relentlessly funny signature style.§§This is the Diary of a Mad Diva . For the first time in a century, a diary by someone that's actually worth reading.§§WITH NEW MATERIAL§

World of Karl Pilkington Harper Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A collection of the best moments from the 'Ricky Gervais Show' with further musings from Karl Pilkington, star of Sky 1's 'An Idiot Abroad'. Karl Pilkington's is a brilliant mind, locked inside a perfectly round head and uncluttered by the unhelpful constraints of logic or common sense.

Featuring the best conversations from 'The Ricky Gervais Show' podcasts and original illustrations and scribblings by Karl Pilkington, this is a unique trip into the mind of our most innovative visionary - or, as Gervais and Merchant know him, 'the funniest man alive in Britain today'.

Generation of Swine Picador

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'Most smart people tend to feel queasy when the conversation turns to things like 'certain death' and 'total failure' and the idea of 'a doomed generation'. But not me. I am comfortable with these themes'. Hunter S. Thompson, celebrated author of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", has been writing a weekly column for the "San Francisco Examiner" for the last two years. Those columns are collected here to offer a chronicle of the adventures of a Generation of Swine. The incomparable 'Dr Gonzo' has journeyed no small distance in search of intelligent life and reports back, instead, on the demented state of current events. He keeps tabs on the 1998 presidential race, quotes from the Bible (reference books in hotel rooms are supplied exclusively by the Gideons) and asks why the President appears to be a hundred and twenty-eight years old. 'He is working from a dementia that no one in his right mind would want to share. It is the dementia, however, that makes Thompson great' - "Playboy". 'His hallucinated vision strikes one as having been, after all, the sanest' - Nelson Algren.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

I always imagine St. Andrews to be an ineffectual seat of learning, and the sound of the east wind and the bursting surf to linger in its drowsy classrooms and confound the utterance of the professor... -from "Random Memories" With observations both trenchant and sentimental from the keen eye of one of the 19th century's most beloved writers, this charming volume, first published in 1892, is a delightful potpourri of Robert Louis Stevenson's essays. Within: . a recounting of an overland trip from New York to San Francisco, with thoughts on the people and landscape of America . a valentine to a French artists' colony... and a withering eye for the artists themselves ("'Snoozing' is a part of the artistic education") . commentary on the cantankerous and windswept nature of "The Coast of Fife" and the value of "The Education of an Engineer." These musings of an inveterate wandering and keen spectator of life serve as a glimpse into the mind and memories of an author's imagination, and serve as a vital psychological backdrop for the tales of adventure, romance, and horror related in Stevenson's fiction. Scottish writer and poet ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON (1850-1894) was born in Edinburgh to a prosperous family of engineers, but gave up the family profession first for law and then for literature. Among his prodigious output as a writer are: Treasure Island (1883), The Black Arrow (1884), A Child's Garden of Verses (1885), Kidnapped (1886), and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886).

Mo' Meta Blues WARNER INTERNATIONAL

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The World According to Questlove Mo' Meta Blues is a punch-drunk memoir in which Everyone's Favorite Questlove tells his own story while tackling some of the lates, the greats, the fakes, the philosophers, the heavyweights, and the true originals of the music world. He digs deep into the album cuts of his life and unearths some pivotal moments in black art, hip hop, and pop culture. Ahmir 'Questlove' Thompson is many things: virtuoso drummer, producer, arranger, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon bandleader, DJ, composer, and tireless Tweeter. He is one of our most ubiquitous cultural tastemakers, and in this, his first book, he reveals his own formative experiences--from growing up in 1970s West Philly as the son of a 1950s doo-wop singer, to finding his own way through the music world and ultimately co-founding and rising up with the Roots, a.k.a., the last hip hop band on Earth. Mo' Meta Blues also has some (many) random (or not) musings about the state of hip hop, the state of music criticism, the state of statements, as well as a plethora of run-ins with celebrities, idols, and fellow artists, from Stevie Wonder to KISS to D'Angelo to Jay-Z to Dave Chappelle to...you ever seen Prince roller-skate? !? But Mo' Meta Blues isn't just a memoir. It's a dialogue about the nature of memory and the idea of a post-modern black man saddled with some post-modern blues. It's a book that questions what a book like Mo' Meta Blues really is. It's the side wind of a one-of-a-kind mind. It's a rare gift that gives as well as takes. It's a record that keeps going around and around.

Excerpt from Sir Rowland Hill: The Story of a Great Reform In Gladstone's "'musings for the good of man,'" writes John Morley in his Life of the dead statesman (ii. 56, 57), the "Liberation of Intercourse, to borrow his own larger name for Free Trade, figured in his mind's eye as one of the promoting conditions of abundant employment ... He recalled the days when our predecessors thought it must be for man's good to have 'most of the avenues by which the mind and also the hand of man conveyed and exchanged their respective products' blocked or narrowed by regulation and taxation. Dissemination of news, travelling, letters, transit of goods, were all made as costly and difficult as the legislation could make them. 'I rank,' he said, 'the introduction of cheap postage for letters, documents, patterns, and printed matter, and the abolition of all taxes on printed matter, in the catalogue of free legislation.

"I can't remember the last time I was so gripped simply by a novel's voice...Aaliya is thoughtful, she's complex, she's humorous and critical."--NPR.com "Beautiful and absorbing."--"New York Times" "An Unnecessary Woman" is a breathtaking portrait of one reclusive woman's late-life crisis, which garnered a wave of rave reviews and love letters to Alameddine's cranky yet charming septuagenarian protagonist, Aaliya, a character you "can't help but love" (NPR). Aaliya's insightful musings on literature, philosophy, and art are invaded by memories of the Lebanese Civil War and her volatile past. As she tries to overcome her aging body and spontaneous emotional upwellings, Aaliya is faced with an unthinkable disaster that threatens to shatter the little life she has left. Here, the gifted Rabih Alameddine has given us a nuanced rendering of one woman's life in the Middle East and an enduring ode to literature and its power to define who we are. "A paean to the transformative power of reading, to the intellectual asylum from one's circumstances found in the life of the mind."--"LA Review of Books" "[The novel] throbs with energy...[Aaliya's] inventive way with words gives unfailing pleasure, no matter how dark the events she describes, how painful the emotions she reveals."--"Washington Post"

Fela Anikulapo-Kuti Front Page Media

Fela Anikulapo-Kutiís universal ideas were fresh as dawn. His compositions were sophisticated, a highly 'musical construction'. From 1987, Fela was the only band in the world with two bass guitars in glissade, a form where the music slides between two notes in which all intermediate notes are played. Fela's behaviour was not extreme, when you eliminate his excesses, his socio-political musings indicate a complete intellectual capacity. He chewed up all books by great Africanists and his thoughts went deeper with his analytical mind. His music was opened to the power of the written word and it was the dawn of awareness for Fela's musical orientation, the beginning of his "Felasophy"; a total reawakening into the inhumanity against humanity. He felt for Africa and their wretched lives. Every successive government in Nigeria kicked Fela and through multiple detentions they almost broke his spirit, however during these times he wrote, composed and arranged the best music of his career. Fela Anikulapo-Kuti: The Primary Man Of An African Personality is a dramatic presentation of "Felasophy". It chronicles the music, politics, life and courage of the legendary Afro-beat activist who died on August 2, 1997.
