Die Pariserin ist erwachsen geworden. Faszinierend, geheimnisvoll und umwerfend: In "Older, but Better, but Older" enthüllen die beiden Lifestyle-Ikonen und Bestsellerautorinnen Caroline de Maigret und Sophie Mas gewohnt witzig und selbstironisch den Mythos der französischen Frau, die erwachsen geworden ist - in der Liebe, im Leben und fast überall sonst. Ob in Sachen Schönheit, Liebe oder Verführung, ihre Stilsicherheit ist nach wie vor legendär. Aber sie hat auch keine Angst über schwierige Fragen in Sachen Familienplanung, Job oder das Alleinleben zu sprechen: Denn um brav alle Erwartungen zu erfüllen, ist sie noch immer viel zu sehr Bohémienne! Du weißt einfach, dass sich etwas verändert hat, wenn ein Typ um die dreißig, der gerade auf der Party auftaucht, dich keines Blickes würdigt, wenn du aufwachst, dich blendend fühlst, und alle dir sagen, wie müde du aussiehst, und du weißt, dass du erwachsen bist, wenn du dich einfach nur aufs Nachhause gehen freust. Neurosen treffen auf Selbstvertrauen, Widerstand auf Akzeptanz und Leidenschaft auf Gelassenheit - Caroline de Maigret und Sophie Mas fangen charmant, lässig und voller Esprit Momente des Alltags ein, die jede erwachsen gewordene Leserin kennt.

Shadow of the Sun Penguin
'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

Opis - Although perhaps better known for his Lieder and piano music, both of the works heard on this new recording by the Daniel Quartet are from Robert Schumann"s significant oeuvre of chamber music. Remarkably, it was within a single year (1842), at the start of his career, that Schumann wrote his three String Quartets Op.41 and the Piano Quintet Op.44; both are now considered pillars of the chamber music repertoire. Schumann was well acquainted with examples of the genre by Haydn, Mozart and Mendelssohn, and passionate studies of Beethoven"s quartets preceded his own works. He adapted elements from these older compositions into his new music, and easily transposed his writing for full orchestra to the smaller ensemble. Schumann"s song-like melodies are brought to life in this lively new release, with the exuberant character of the music palpable in the Daniel Quartet"s performance. Schumann himself described the String Quartet in A major as one of the best things he had ever written, and the Piano Quintet in E flat major is similarly considered one of Schumann"s best compositions. The work was dedicated to his beloved wife Clara, and she played in its premiere in 1843. The Daniel Quartet is renowned for its performances of chamber music at major venues in the USA and across Europe. For the Piano Quintet, they are joined by Hungarian pianist Klára Würtz " one of Brilliant Classics" most prolific artists " whose recent recording of Beethoven violin sonatas received five-star reviews in Diapason and Fanfare. Other information: - Recorded in 2014. - This new recording presents two of Schumann"s best and most famous chamber music works. - Schumann composed his first 23 Opus numbers exclusively for piano solo, then poured out a rich stream of Lieder. He came relatively late to orchestral and chamber music. His Piano Quintet and String Quartets are firmly rooted in the Viennese classical style of Beethoven and Mendelssohn, but Schumann imbued them with his own unique "fantastic? language, a free and dreamlike imagination, full of diverse characters and ideas. - Excellent performances by one of the leading Dutch string quartets, the Daniel Quartet, joined in the Piano Quintet by Klára Würtz, whose Schumann recordings for Brilliant Classics have met with great critial acclaim. - Booklet includes liner notes and artist biographies.

An unforgettable account of a forbidden romance. Nicole Dennis-Benn, author of Patsy Moving and memorable. Meg Wolitzer, author of The Female Persuasion Sensual and wise. Tayari Jones, author of An American Marriage Will remind readers of Sally Rooney s work This is auspicious and breathtaking. Publishers Weekly *STARRED review*A novel about a young woman s life-altering affair with a much older, married woman.Mallory is a freshman in college when she meets the woman. She sees her for the first time at the university s gym, immediately entranced by this elegant, older person, whom she later learns is married and works at the school. Before long, they begin a clandestine affair. Self-possessed, successful, brilliant, and aloof, the woman absolutely consumes Mallory, who is still reeling from her mother s death a few months earlier. Mallory retreats from the rest of the world and into a relationship with this melancholy, elusive woman she admires so much yet who can never be fully hers, solidifying a sense of solitude that has both haunted and soothed her as long as she can remember. Years after the affair has ended, Mallory must decide whether to stay safely in this isolation, this constructed loneliness, or to step fully into the world and confront what the woman meant to her, for better or worse. This simmering, unsettling debut novel reveals the consequences of desire and influence, portraying two women whose lives have been transformed by love, loss, and secrecy.
Original Home Schooling Series by Charlotte Mason Wilder Publications
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Charlotte Mason was a late nineteenth-century British educator whose ideas were far ahead of her time. She believed that children are born persons worthy of respect, rather than blank slates, and that it was better to feed their growing minds with living literature and vital ideas and knowledge, rather than dry facts and knowledge filtered and pre-digested by the teacher. Her method of education, still used by some private schools and many homeschooling families, is gentle and flexible, especially with younger children, and includes first-hand exposure to great and noble ideas through books in each school subject, conveying wonder and arousing curiosity, and through reflection upon great art, music, and poetry; nature observation as the primary means of early science teaching; use of manipulatives and real-life application to understand mathematical concepts and learning to reason, rather than rote memorization and working endless sums; and an emphasis on character and on cultivating and maintaining good personal habits. Schooling is teacher-directed, not child-led, but school time should be short enough to allow students free time to play and to pursue their own worthy interests such as handicrafts. Traditional Charlotte Mason schooling is firmly based on Christianity, although the method is also used successfully by secular families and families of other religions. Here in one affordable volume is her complete Homeschooling Series: Home Education: Six lectures by Charlotte Mason about the raising and educating of young children (up to the age of nine), for parents and teachers. She details how lessons in various school subjects can be done using her approach. She concludes with remarks about the Will, the Conscience, and the Divine Life in the Child. Parents and Children: A collection of 26 articles from the original Parent's Review magazines to encourage and instruct parents. School Education: Thoughts about the teaching and curriculum of children aged 9-12, either at school or at home. Ourselves: A character curriculum book written directly to children. Book I, Self-Knowledge, is for elementary school students; Book II, Self-Direction, is for older students. Formation of Character: Includes case studies of children (and adults) who cured themselves of bad habits; reflections on subjects including both schooling and vacations (or "stay-cations" as we now call them); various aspects of home schooling, with a special section detailing the things that Charlotte Mason thought were important to teach to girls in particular; and examples of how education affected outcome of character in famous writers of her day. Towards a Philosophy of Education: Charlotte Mason's final book, written after years of seeing her approach in action. This volume gives the best overview of her philosophy, and includes the final version of her 20 Principles. This book is particularly directed to parents of older children, about ages 12 and up, but is a valuable overview for parents of younger children as well, covering both theory and practice.
