Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This raw and riveting fictionalized memoir lays bare the state of Christianity in the turbulent 1960s, when society re-evaluates its beliefs about morality, love, sex, and spirituality. Scott Lively, a United Church of Canada minister in Toronto North preaches The New Morality (love, then do as you like), specifically that young lovers might engage in pre-marital intercourse though not legally married. Soon he is labeled 'The Sex Cleric', and is called to account by his congregation. Though the story takes place in 1966, the issues of which Scott Lively speaks prophetically and passionately are still relevant today. This book will appeal to spiritual seekers who may be disinterested or uncomfortable with the institutional church. Activists interested in social justice will also be attracted to the narrative.

Riot on Sunset Strip Jawbone

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

On the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles in 1965 and 1966 an electrifying scene appeared out of nowhere, exploded into creativity, and then, just as suddenly, vanished. So much remarkable music, art, and social revolution came from one place at one time, it's difficult now to grasp how it all happened. This book tells the story of the astonishing time when rock'n'roll displaced movies as the centre of action in Hollywood. From the moment The Byrds debuted at Ciro's on March 26th 1965-with Bob Dylan joining them onstage-right up to the demonstrations of November 1966, Sunset Strip nightclubs nurtured and broke The Doors, Love, Buffalo Springfield (featuring Neil Young and Stephen Stills), Frank Zappa's Mothers Of Invention, Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band, The Turtles, The Mamas and The Papas, and many others. The Strip was a hotbed for garage punk bands such as The Standells, The Electric Prunes, and The Leaves. Folk-rock and psychedelia were born there, while it was also a favourite hangout and inspiration for The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Velvet Underground. Republished to coincide with the 50th anniversary of these incredible times, Riot On Sunset Strip: Rock'n'Roll's Last Stand In Hollywood captures the excitement of this great artistic awakening, telling how the scene came together and then fell apart at the Monterey Pop festival, the tragic grand finale of the Summer of Love. It serves as a startling evocation of the social and artistic revolution that was the 60s.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

The Doors have become the stuff of music legend, having being one of the first bands to bring the dark side of rock to a mass following. They formed in 1965 and went on to dizzying levels of success - with the wild rock 'n' roll lifestyle to match. As one of the most provocative and influential rock acts of the 1960s, springing from the era of free love and revolution, the story of The Doors is one filled with controversy, intrigue and greatness. Their unpredictable and outrageous front-man Jim Morrison ended up dead in a Parisian bathtub in 1971, but they still went on to become one the most revered bands in rock history. Along with evoking the cultural milieu of Los Angeles, Mick Wall captures the true spirit of The Doors with a brilliantly penetrating and contemporary investigation into the music and lives of the four band members.

The harrowing true story of a travelling Irish family bonded by love, broken apart by life, and then betrayed by their carers in a cruel convent in Ireland. "For those who we lost along the way, I tell this story. For all the children who suffered in this terrible place. For all those I consider my brothers and sisters; the ones who died, the ones who lost their minds, the ones who drown their memories everyday in a bottle of whisky, I tell this for you. Because in the end we are all brothers and sisters - and if we don't feel that bond of love between each other, just as human beings, then we are nothing. We are no better than the monsters that ran the convents." Based in Ireland in the 1960s and 70s, Kathleen's story is a story of extreme hardship, suffering and abuse. It is the story of 11 siblings, abandoned by their mother and torn from their father, incarcerated in convents and then driven apart in the cruellest ways imaginable; it is the story of their ruined childhoods and their fight for recompense. But more than that, it is a story of courage, survival and the incredible strength of sibling bonds against overwhelming adversities. Out of terrible darkness comes a remarkable story. In the tradition of Irish storytelling, Kathleen offers a mesmerising account of her family's experience.

Enchanted by the Hollywood movies she watched while growing up in affluent Tehran in the 1950s and 1960s, Shohreh Aghdashloo dreamed of becoming an actress, despite her parents more practical plans. When she fell in love with her husband, Aydin, a painter thirteen years her senior, she made him promise he'd allow her to follow her passion. Filled with hard work and extensive travel throughout Europe and the Middle East, the first years of her marriage were magical. As Shohreh began to build her acclaimed career, Aydin worked for the Minister of Art and Culture, exhibiting his art in Tehran. But in 1978 revolution swept across Iran, toppling the Shah and instilling a new religious regime under the Ayatollah Khomeini. Terrified of the stifling new restrictions on women and art, Shohreh realized that she, too, had to escape. Leaving the man she loved behind, she made her way to Europe and eventually to Hollywood. In this moving memoir, Shohreh shares her story: a tale of privilege and affluence, pain and prejudice, tenacity and success. She writes poignantly about her struggles as an outsider in a new culture - as a woman, a Muslim, and an Iranian - adopting to a new land and a new language. And she shares behind the scenes stories about what it's really like to be a Hollywood actress - including being snubbed by two of Tinseltown's biggest names on Oscar night. Lyrical and atmospheric, The Alley of Love and Jasmines is a powerful story of ambition, art, politics, terror, and courage - of an extraodinary woman determined to live her dreams.

Delores tells the story of an idealistic black teenager coming of age in white, industrial Sheffield during the decade of change and awakening - the 1960s. Desperate to meet her estranged father, to fall in love and to be accepted - or at the very least ignored - by the white community around her, Delores stumbles through her teenaged years in ignorance and awe. We share her first bittersweet experiences of love - and, of course, rejection - and feel her pain during those all too common cringe-worthy adolescent moments. Set against the backdrop of contemporary social issues, 'Delores' is both the history of a time and of the young adult in all of us.

When Gianni Bozzacchi accepted an assignment as a photographer on the set of The Comedians (1967), he didn't know that his life was about to change forever. His ability to capture the beauty of candid moments drew the attention of the film's star, Elizabeth Taylor, and prompted her to hire him as her personal photographer. Not only did he go on to enjoy a jet-set life as her friend and confidant-preserving unguarded moments between the violet-eyed beauty and Richard Burton as they traveled the world-but Bozzacchi also became an internationally renowned photographer and shot some of the biggest celebrities of the 1960s and 1970s. In My Life in Focus, Bozzacchi traces his journey from humble beginnings to the sphere of the rich and famous. As a child, he cultivated his skills by working with his father-a photographer for the Italian government. Following in his parent's footsteps was not something Bozzacchi had foreseen for his future; but his passion for taking pictures and his ability to put his subjects at ease enabled him to capture stunning images of some of the greatest stars of the twentieth century, including Audrey Hepburn, Steve McQueen, Raquel Welch, Mia Farrow, Clint Eastwood, and the royal family of Monaco. Beautifully illustrated with many of the photographer's most iconic images, this lively memoir reveals private moments in the Taylor-Burton love story and provides an invaluable behind-the-scenes look at the business of filmmaking and the perils of celebrity.

Memory is Our Home is based on Roma s Talasiewicz-Eibuszyc diary, her writings about Warsaw Poland during the years following the First World War and the six long years of World War WII, and how she and refuges like her were able to survive throughout the vast territories of Soviet Russia and Uzbekistan. Interwoven with her journals are stories she told to me throughout my life, as well as my own recollections as my family made a new life in the shadows of the Holocaust in Communist Poland after the war and into the late 1960s.§The book is a rich, living document, a riveting account of a vibrant young woman`s courage and endurance. A forty-year recollection, of love and loss, of hopes and dreams for a better world, narrated in a compelling, unique voice, through two generations, that conveys the historical background and a personal story in an accessible format for modern readers. Roma`s richly-textured descriptions of the physical and emotional lives of Jews in Warsaw after the First War and candor about surviving World War II throughout Russia, and her daughter`s own story about a childhood after the war in Communist Poland in the shadows of the Holocaust aftermath make this book a deeply moving and a universal story.§With this book the author pays tribute to the chapter in history that is now almost forgotten. This very personal story is told on the background of twentieth-century European history so that this book can be used as an educational tool, especially at the high school level. Leading scholars in US, Europe and Israel, have responded with praise, noting its historical value, its ability to inspire and teach readers young and old, and the important contribution it will make to current and future generations.§The book encourages people to learn about their ancestors` history and traumas. Science as well as experience shows us again and again that we carry in our genes not only our parents` blue eyes or the color of skin, but their memories as well. Trauma affects the nervous system of the mother, and this change is passed down to the next generation. Memoir like this tells the story of so many people so that reading it can help heal the generations who carry this unbelievable tragedy in their lives.§It is said that in every survivor`s family, one child is unconsciously chosen to be a memorial candle, to carry on the mourning and to dedicate his or her life to the memory of the Shoah. That child takes part in the parents` emotional world, assumes the burden, and becomes the link between past and future. Transmitting the memory of the vibrant culture before the Holocaust is just as important just as the memory of the Holocaust, to combat ignorance and prejudice and sharing of cultures and knowledge of history. Memory is Our Home; the story of the vibrant Jewish culture that flourished in Poland, the account of its demise, connecting it to the present, makes the book the memorial candle.

Paul McGrath is Ireland's best loved sportsman and also its least understood. An iconic football presence during a professional career stretching over 14 years, he played for his country in the European Championship finals of 1988 and the World Cup finals of 1990 and 1994. But, behind the implied glamour of life in the employ of great English clubs like Manchester United and Aston Villa, McGrath wrestled with a range of destructive emotions that made his success in the game little short of miraculous. That story has until now never been told. It is a story that runs from a hard, hidden childhood spent in Dublin's orphanages all the way to the pain of two marriage break-ups and the struggle to cope with life after football. Quite apart from his all too public struggle with alcoholism, the story runs through the surreal highs and calamitous lows of a life lived habitually on the edge of chaos. It is not just a football story. It is an extraordinary human story that is certain to surprise with its candour. Here, for the first time, read about the father he never met; the mother whose love never died; the routine loneliness and ritual bullying endured by a black kid growing up behind closed doors in 1960s Dublin; the emotional breakdown suffered on leaving that institution; the recovery that - remarkably - brought him all the way to Old Trafford; the rollercoaster ride that followed. Here, the guilt, fear, self-loathing are all laid bare in a story fired with hope and determination for the future. It may well be the most candid sports book ever written.

Bernard Buffet Preface Publishing

It is said that asphyxiation brings on a state of hallucinatory intoxication...in which case the 71 year old artist who lay in his sprawling Provencal villa died happy. In the early afternoon of Monday October 4 1999, wracked with Parkinson's, and unable to paint because of a fall in which he had broken his wrist, Bernard Buffet calmly placed a plastic bag over his head, taped it tight around his neck and patiently waited the few minutes it took for death to arrive. His widow found him at four o'clock, and, using the scissors with which he trimmed his beard, cut away the plastic bag to reveal a face that she described as peaceful and smiling. In a last twist of macabre irony the black polythene through which she sliced was printed with two words in her late husband's distinctive angular script 'Bernard Buffet, Bernard Buffet, Bernard Buffet Bernard Buffet...' the name repeated over and over again as if in mute funerary lamentation. Bernard Buffet And The Invention Of The Modern Mega-artist' will tell the remarkable story of a French figurative painter who tasted unprecedented critical and commercial success at an age when his contemporaries were still at art school. Then, with almost equal suddenness the fruits of fame turned sour and he found himself an outcast. Scarred with the contagion of immense commercial success (he was not just rich, he was yacht-rich) no leper was more untouchable. He was the first artist of the television age and the jet age. Such was his celebrity that during the 1960s people spoke of France's two BBs (the other was Brigitte Bardot). Indeed Buffet's role in creating the idea of a post-war France is not to be underestimated and will be explored in this book. As the first of the so called Fabulous Five (Francoise Sagan, Roger Vadim, Brigitte Bardot and Yves Saint Laurent) he was a leader of the cultural revolution that seemed to forge a new France from the shattered remains of a discredited and demoralized country. Rich in incident Buffet's remarkable story of bisexual love affairs, betrayal, vendettas lasting half a century, shattered reputations, alcoholism, and drug abuse, is played out against the backdrop of the beau monde of the 1950s and 1960s in locations as diverse as St Tropez, Japan, Paris and New York, before coming to its miserable conclusion alone in his studio.
