Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover! (Two books, in this case.) Bold, vibrant, textured oilcloth-like covers are a perfect prelude to the vivacious and invigorating ideas that fill every page of these two Fiesta of Happiness books. Each page delivers a lively, paragraph-length nugget of wisdom'part peptalk, part poetry, part affirmation, part philosophical inquiry'that speaks directly to the reader. Each is a call to action, a rousing invocation to live life more fully and realize the depth of our human potential. Take the Unexpected Path makes a compelling case for breaking out of the usual routine, expanding your horizons, and letting life take a more adventurous course. From the silly to the serious, this book is filled with ways to brighten your own or someone else's day by doing something surprising, unusual, and wonderfully unexpected. A sample entry is titled 'Designs on Life': 'Be the architect of your moment.Plant a garden in your imagination, Let the trees and flowers tower above the rooftops, Then rearrange the houses in your neighborhood. . . .'

Hemingways berühmtester Roman in neuer Übersetzung Hemingways frühester Roman aus dem Jahre 1926 liegt hier in neuer Übersetzung vor. Er ist der «Verlorenen Generation» des Ersten Weltkriegs gewidmet. Die Figuren leben, körperlich und seelisch gezeichnet, aber mit fatalistischer Sorglosigkeit als Außenseiter des bürgerlichen Lebens unter der heißen Sonne Frankreichs und Spaniens, zwischen Stierkampf und durchzechten Nächten. Hemingway selbst beschrieb seinen Roman als «eine verdammt traurige Geschichte, in der aufgezeigt wird, wie Menschen zugrunde gehen». So etwa Lady Brett Ashley, die Männer in Serie unglücklich macht: ihren Vertrauten, den Ich-Erzähler Jack Barnes, einen typischen Hemingway-Helden, beherrscht und zurückhaltend; den aus einer wohlhabenden Familie stammenden Amateurboxer Robert Cohn, der, von Brett mal nah, mal fern gehalten, zwischen Unsicherheit und Aggression schwankt; und schließlich Pedro Romero, den Stierkämpfer, stolz, ausdauernd, mutig und voller Würde, aber Lady Ashley gegenüber machtlos. «Fiesta» ist ein großes Epochenporträt, ein Generationenroman mit kraftvollen Zeichnungen von Menschen, Land und Leuten. Das Buch begründete Hemingways Weltruhm. «Eine fesselnde, wunderschön absurde, herzzerreißende Erzählung.» (The New York Times)

Just Touching the Memory

Author: Lyudmila Noble

Publisher: Xlibris Corporation

ISBN: 1479782149

Category: Fiction

Page: 461

View: 793

Lyudmila Noble, the author of the book Just Touching the Memory was born in a family of a well-known doctor in the former Soviet Union. From her very childhood she was introduced to the notions of humanism and altruism which were presented to her by her father. Lyudmila Nobles father was her mentor and her role model. In the former Soviet Union Lyudmila received her education as linguist, educator and military nurse. She majored in English/German. Later she got her Masters Degree in Social Work in New York, USA. In her book she invites her potential readers to think, to analyze and to understand about the reasons which made Soviet people to leave their country. As everyone is aware nobody leaves and departs from a good life. On the surface her main character had a great career, house, family, children, husband But that was the tip of the iceberg. The underlying reason for her departure from the former Soviet Union was deep down and deeply hidden from the eyes of the bystanders. In her book she tried to capture the most significant events which led the country to the collapse and made an impact of the destinies of the citizens of that country greatly Being a sensitive author, she wants to say in her book, My freedom is finishing when your freedom ends. As a matter of fact, in the former USSR the notions will and freedom were not separated. The authorities did everything what they wanted to do in spite of the fact that they hurt constantly Soviet people the people of values and dignity. The main purpose of this book is that very fact that the author intended to introduce relatively newly arrived Russian-speaking community to the American Society. To break stereotypes about Russians as the rigid people who came from the cold freezing country with similar personalities, instead she shows the real Russians in the US.
