Des Moines, Iowa-born writer Bryson's first success was the travel book The Lost Continent. After living in England for several years, he wanted to go back to the USA to find the perfect little US town of his past, he lovingly called Amalgam. More travel books followed, in the form of Neither Here Nor There (where he travels through Europe), Notes From A Small Island (where he travels around the United Kingdom, before returning back to the USA to live there for good) and A Walk In The Woods (where he walks the Appalachian trail). After moving back to the States, Bryson started to write a column for The Mail on Sunday Night and Day magazine. This is a collection of these column entries. Bryson writes about everything from everyday chores, to suing people, the beach, TV, movies, air conditioners, college, Americana, injury dangers, wasting resources, and holiday seasons. 1.

A stagecoach has arrived. The door opens and you find a man holding a book. That book is called "Preachers Corner: Gunfighter of the West, Book 1," and the owner tells you this is the latest western best seller from Bruce G. Bennett. You are stuck in Cheyenne for the day - you sit down and you start to listen. Why is railroad magnate, Leonard Green, suddenly so interested in sleepy little Preacher's Corner? Find out in this action packed story about the Wild West when it was really wild. Are Apaches behind burning out and murdering settlers or is some insidious plot afoot? It's going to take cavalry Major Gabriel Torrent and a host of colloquial characters to figure out the puzzle. Throw in renegade Apaches and you have a great mix of Americana reminiscent of Zane Grey. Be there when the moment of truth is revealed in Preachers Corner. Filled with action-packed drama, great gunfights, and the writing of Bruce G. Bennett, you will not be able to pause Preachers Corner. Stake your claim now, and spend your hours with one of the best western books of the year. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffery Lynn Hutchins.

Nick Drake's Pink Moon (33 1/3 Series) , Hörbuc...
9,95 € *

Did it take suicide to make Nick Drake compelling to a mass market? "I think the failure of his music to be successful in his lifetime was Nick's tragedy and the source of his unhappiness," Joe Boyd tells me, when asked about the irony of Drake's considerable posthumous success. It certainly seems likely that Drake's commercial failures goaded his depression. Which makes what happened to Pink Moon in the new millennium all the more dizzying. Pink Moon is one of the sparest, quietest albums ever to have become a "hit" in any sense of the word. Here, Amanda Petrusich investigates the album's creation, reception, and peculiar history. The result is a bewitching book about art, commerce, and the flourishing of fame. Amanda Petrusich is a writer for Pitchforkmedia.com and a senior contributing editor at Paste magazine. She is the author of It Still Moves: Lost Songs, Lost Highways, and the Search for the Next American Music, a travelogue about early Americana music forthcoming from Faber and Faber in 2008. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. 33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist's entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album. The authors provide fresh, original perspectives - often through their access to and relationships with the key figures involved in the recording of these albums. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. (A task which can be, as Elvis Costello famously observed, as tricky as dancing about architecture.) What binds this series together, and what brings it to life, is that all of the authors - musicians, scholars, and writers - are deeply in love with the album they have ch 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ben Remeaka. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/000421/bk_adbl_000421_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

La Sala Marte / The Mars Room
17,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Novela del año según TIME y finalista del Man Booker Prize. «Áspera, empática, finamente construida, sin edulcorantes y cargada de golpes,ninguno de ellos suave.».- Margaret Atwood «La mayor parte de los libros de ficción literaria son de corta duración. La sala Marte permanecerá. Es auténtica.».- Stephen King El camino que recorre Romy, condenada a dos cadenas perpetuas, es el que parece programado para ciertas personas y que pone en cuestión el sueño americano: un camino que va directo desde la pobreza hasta la cárcel. En La sala Marte entramos de lleno en este mundo extraño situado tras los muros de una prisión de mujeres, cargado de detalles y de un idioma y una rutina propios; un mundo aparte pero unido íntimamente al del exterior. La minuciosidad con la que Rachel Kushner trata la violencia latente y explícita de esta red carcelaria, la oscuridad y la comicidad de sus personajes, la implicación con la que se ha empapado de la realidad más subterránea de su país, han convertido a esta novela en una obra clave de la literatura americana actual. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION TIME'S #1 FICTION TITLE OF THE YEAR • NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK OF 2018 FINALIST for the MAN BOOKER PRIZE and the NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD LONGLISTED for the ANDREW CARNEGIE MEDAL An instant New York Times bestseller from two-time National Book Award finalist Rachel Kushner, The Mars Room earned tweets from Margaret Atwood-"gritty, empathic, finely rendered, no sugar toppings, and a lot of punches, none of them pulled"-and from Stephen King-"The Mars Room is the real deal, jarring, horrible, compassionate, funny." It's 2003 and Romy Hall, named after a German actress, is at the start of two consecutive life sentences at Stanville Women's Correctional Facility, deep in California's Central Valley. Outside is the world from which she has been severed: her young son, Jackson, and the San Francisco of her youth. Inside is a new reality: thousands of women hustling for the bare essentials needed to survive; the bluffing and pageantry and casual acts of violence by guards and prisoners alike; and the deadpan absurdities of institutional living, portrayed with great humor and precision. Stunning and unsentimental, The Mars Room is "wholly authentic…profound…luminous" (The Wall Street Journal), "one of those books that enrage you even as they break your heart" (The New York Times Book Review, cover review)-a spectacularly compelling, heart-stopping novel about a life gone off the rails in contemporary America. It is audacious and tragic, propulsive and yet beautifully refined and "affirms Rachel Kushner as one of our best novelists" (Entertainment Weekly).

X-Ray Rider 3: Mileposts on the Road to Childho...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jonesing for a drive-in theater and a hotrod El Camino? It's the dawn of the 1970s, and everything is changing. The war in Vietnam is winding down. So is the Apollo Space Program. The tiny northwestern city of Spokane is about to host a World's Fair. But the Watergate Hearings, the re-entry of Skylab, and the eruption of Mount Saint Helens are coming...as are killer bees and Ronald Reagan. Enter "The Kid", a panic-prone, hyper-imaginative boy whose life changes drastically when his father brings home an astronaut white El Camino. As the car's deep-seated rumbling becomes a catalyst for the Kid's curiosity, his ailing, overprotective mother finds herself fending off questions she doesn't want to answer. But her attempt to redirect him on his birthday only arms him with the tool he needs to penetrate deeper - a pair of novelty X-Ray Specs - and as the Camino muscles them through a decade of economic and cultural turmoil, the Kid comes to believe he can see through metal, clothing, skin - to the center of the universe itself, where he imagines something monstrous growing, spreading, reaching across time and space to threaten his very world. Using the iconography of 20th century trash Americana - drive-in monster movies, cancelled TV shows, vintage comic books - Spitzer has written an unconventional memoir which recalls J. M. Coetzee's boyhood and youth. More than a literal character, The Kid is both the child and the adult. By eschewing the technique of traditional autobiography, Spitzer creates a spherical narrative in which the past lives on in an eternal present while retrospection penetrates the edges. X-Ray Rider is not so much a memoir as it is a retro prequel to a postmodern life - a cinematized reboot of what Stephen King calls the "fogged-out landscape" of youth. Want to go for a ride? 1.

Jonesing for a drive-in theater and a hotrod El Camino? It’s the dawn of the 1970s and everything is changing. The war in Vietnam is winding down. So is the Apollo Space Program. The tiny northwestern city of Spokane is about to host a World’s Fair. But the Watergate Hearings and the re-entry of Skylab and the eruption of Mount Saint Helens are coming…as are killer bees and Ronald Reagan.
