Przy sercu Twoim. Kantata dla NMP - Praca zbiorowa

Książki & Multimedia > Muzyka

Opis - Kompozycja, składająca się z 14 utworów, została napisana dla uczczenia drugiej rocznicy śmierci Jana Pawła II. Proste teksty ks. Mateusza Jeża są hołdem oddanym Matce Bożej. Muzyka Zbigniewa Małkowicza łączy w sobie wiele stylów: smyczki brzmią klasycznie, melodie wpadają w ucho jak popowe przeboje, śpiew chóru zahacza o gospel, a bas wybija chwilami jazzowo-funkowe rytmy. Wszystko razem jest mieszanką przyjemną dla ucha, a dawka liryzmu zawarta w utworach sprzyja modlitewnemu skupieniu.Do udziału w nagraniu płyty Przy sercu Twoim zespół LUMEN zaprosił kilku gości specjalnych. Należy do nich m.in. Dariusz Tokarzewski z grupy Vox, który wystąpił w świetnym duecie z młodziutką Aleksandrą Małkowicz. Pociesz mnie to jedna z najładniejszych piosenek na tym krążku. Ale dobrych kompozycji jest tu więcej. Wśród tych bardziej dynamicznych wyróżnia się niewątpliwie utwór Królowo nasza, aniołów Pani, budzący delikatne skojarzenia z twórczością TGD. Wśród spokojniejszych fragmentów zwraca uwagę utwór tytułowy i Kołysanka, wprowadzająca nas w klimat Bożego Narodzenia.Różnorodność stylistyczna tej płyty zespołu LUMEN sprawia, że każdy znajdzie tu coś dla siebie.

The Undoing Project

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - From Michael Lewis, the No.1 bestselling author of The Big Short and Flash Boys, this is the extraordinary story of the two men whose ideas changed the world. Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky met in war-torn 1960s Israel. Both were gifted young psychology professors: Kahneman a rootless son of holocaust survivors who saw the world as a problem to be solved; Tversky a voluble, instinctual blur of energy. In this breathtaking new book, Michael Lewis tells the extraordinary story of a relationship that became a shared mind: one which created the field of behavioural economics, revolutionising everything from Big Data to medicine, from how we are governed to how we spend, from high finance to football. Kahneman and Tversky, shows Michael Lewis, helped shape the world in which we now live - and may well have changed, for good, humankind's view of its own mind.

With the pacing of a literary crime thriller, Mai Jia's masterpiece also combines elements of historical fiction and state espionage. Taking place in the shadowy world of Chinese secret security, where Mai Jia worked for decades, it introduces us to a place that is unfamiliar, intriguing and authentic. And with Rong Jinzhen, it introduces us to a character who is deeply flawed and fragile, yet possessing exceptional intelligence. Decoded is an unforgettable and gripping story of genius, brilliance, insanity and human frailty.'Decoded is a subtle and complex exploration of cryptography, politics, dreams and their significance....There is much of interest in this book, from the strange, superstitious beginning to the gradual decline of the Rong family as the twentieth century progresses...But, in the end, it is the complexity of the characters that is Decoded's enduring pleasure' Times Literary Supplement'Readers skate the line separating insanity from genius in Mai Jia's riveting tale of cryptographic warfare...A denouement at once heartbreaking and thought-provoking leaves readers pondering the collective sanity of a world shrouding knowledge in enigmas.

He has achieved unprecedented success with film adaptation: all of his novels are made - or are being made - into major films or TV series, the screenplays of which are often written by Mai Jia himself. He is hailed as the forerunner of Chinese espionage fiction, and has created a unique genre that combines spycraft, code-breaking, crime, human drama, historical fiction, and metafiction. He has won almost every major award in China, including the highest literary honor - the Mao Dun Award.

Her Again Harper Collins Publishers

A portrait of a woman, an era, and a profession: the first thoroughly researched biography of Meryl Streep-the "Iron Lady" of acting, nominated for nineteen Oscars and winner of three-that explores her beginnings as a young woman of the 1970s grappling with love, feminism, and her astonishing talent. In 1975 Meryl Streep, a promising young graduate of the Yale School of Drama, was finding her place in the New York theater scene. Burning with talent and ambition, she was like dozens of aspiring actors of the time-a twenty-something beauty who rode her bike everywhere, kept a diary, napped before performances, and stayed out late "talking about acting with actors in actors' bars." Yet Meryl stood apart from her peers. In her first season in New York, she won attention-getting parts in back-to-back Broadway plays, a Tony Award nomination, and two roles in Shakespeare in the Park productions. Even then, people said, "Her. Again." Her Again is an intimate look at the artistic coming-of-age of the greatest actress of her generation, from the homecoming float at her suburban New Jersey high school, through her early days on the stage at Vassar College and the Yale School of Drama during its golden years, to her star-making roles in The Deer Hunter, Manhattan, and Kramer vs. Kramer. New Yorker contributor Michael Schulman brings into focus Meryl's heady rise to stardom on the New York stage; her passionate, tragically short-lived love affair with fellow actor John Cazale; her marriage to sculptor Don Gummer; and her evolution as a young woman of the 1970s wrestling with changing ideas of feminism, marriage, love, and sacrifice. Featuring eight pages of black-and-white photos, this captivating story of the making of one of the most revered artistic careers of our time reveals a gifted young woman coming into her extraordinary talents at a time of immense transformation, offering a rare glimpse into the life of the actress long before she became an icon.

We Need to Talk About . . . Kevin Bridges Penguin Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the comic autobiography of 2014. A comedian's autobiography? I wonder if he's ever used humour to deflect from his insecurities? To avoid being bullied? Is there heartache behind the humour? I wonder if he's a manic-depressive? Tears of a clown? Yes, all of that. Discover the hilarious life-story of one of Britain's best-loved comedians in Kevin Bridges' brilliant memoir. 'First of all, I have never written a book before, you probably haven't either, so there we have it; a connection is established between reader and writer...' Aged just 17, Kevin Bridges walked on stage for the first time in a Glasgow comedy club and brought the house down. He only had a five-minute set but in that short time he discovered that he really could earn a living from making people laugh. Kevin began life as a shy, nerve-ridden school-boy, whose weekly highlights included a cake-bombing attack by the local youths. Reaching his teens, he followed his true calling as the class clown, and was soon after arrested for kidnapping Hugh Grant from his local cinema on a quiet Saturday night. This was a guy going somewhere - off the rails seeming most likely. Kevin's trademark social commentary, sharp one-liners and laugh-out-loud humour blend with his reflections on his Glaswegian childhood and the journey he's taken to become one of the most-loved comedians of our time. '...Hopefully now you'll take this over to the till and I can accompany you for the next wee while. That's the benefit of book shops, reading the little bit and then deciding if the author deserves to be part of your carefully selected 3 for 2 deal, or part of your plane journey, train journey, your next bath, your next shite.' Praise for Kevin Bridges: "The Best Scottish Stand up of his Generation." (The Scotsman). "A wonderfully dry and deadpan Glaswegian comic...one the most exciting talents to have emerged from Scotland since Billy Connolly." (Guardian). "Kevin Bridges might just become the best stand-up in the land...he will go and deliver a one-liner that you want to jot down and frame." (The Times). "Wonderfully sharp, assured stand-up from the preternaturally gifted young comic." (Independent Kevin Bridges, Scotland's). "young comedy prodigy." (Guardian), has followed a meteoric path, from his first five-minute set in The Stand comedy club in Glasgow to selling out the SECC to a record-breaking 100,000 fans. He was born in Clydebank, and still lives in Glasgow. Now, at the tender age of just twenty-seven, Kevin puts pen to paper to tell his story so far in his brilliant memoir, We Need to Talk About...Kevin Bridges.
