Das Badezimmer ist vielleicht der letzte private Ort, an den wir uns zurückziehen können. Es ist der Raum für Ruhe und Intimität – und insbesondere für eine Frau der Ort, wo sie ihre Schönheitsgeheimnisse verbirgt und sich jeden Tag aufs Neue verwandeln kann. Jetzt gewähren hundert Frauen einen Einblick in ihre geheimnisvollen Kammern. Die Idee zu diesem Buch kam der Herausgeberin Friederike Schilbach auf einer Ferienreise: »Ich besuchte eine Freundin in Apulien und bemerkte, dass ihr Badezimmer ihrem Charakter ähnelt: luftig, minimalistisch, schön. Ehe ich abreiste, bat ich sie um ein Foto davon sowie um einige Sätze dazu.« Daraus wurde ein ganzes Projekt. Friederike Schilbach fragte Schauspielerinnen wie Lena Dunham, die Schriftstellerinnen Erica Jong und Lily Brett und zahlreiche weitere Frauen, ob sie einen Blick in ihr Badezimmer preisgeben würden. 2016 wurde eine Ausstellung daraus, über die es in der FAS hieß, man würde die Fotos »am liebsten alle zusammen in einem Bildband mit nach Hause nehmen«. Der liegt nun vor. Hundert Frauen teilen darin intime Momente und persönliche Erinnerungen, die zum Nachdenken anregen – und zum Verschenken.

After each affair ends and before the next begins, Mohan finds solace in the practiced charms of his obliging maid, Dhanno, and in the memories of his first lovers: the American Jessica Browne, to whom he lost his virginity, and the Pakistani Yasmeen Wanchoo, who brought him the heady passion of an older woman.

Indirect Aggression Among Women: Why We Hurt Each Other and How to Stop

Author: Pat Heim,Susan Murphy

Publisher: Penguin

In the Company of Women explains how indirect, or "relational," aggression can hurt women and hinder them from achieving success and harmony in their adult lives. Gender studies have shown that when a goal is in sight, men generally use direct action to attain it. Women, on the other hand, have been socialized to express aggressive actions through indirect means-using behavior such as shunning, stigmatizing, and With startling insights into the meaning of our everyday behavior, this book offers straightforward techniques to change conflict among women into cooperation by resolving discords peaceably, building relationships, and making the most of women's unique leadership and communication skills.

When Felicitas comes of age and begins her studies at Columbia, everything seems poised to change. At the university, she falls under the spell of another domineering man—a professor surrounded by young activist acolytes—and this time, the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Neue Geständnisse eines Küchenchefs

Author: Anthony Bourdain

Publisher: Karl Blessing Verlag

ISBN: 3641060397

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 400

View: 6419

Ein Buch wie ein Messer – scharf, kompromisslos und ein bisschen blutig Er führte ein Millionenpublikum hinter die Fassade der Nobel Cuisine – und zeigte uns die infernalischen Abgründe der Gastronomie. Seine Küche im legendären „Les Halles” in New York City war von derselben Leidenschaft, Besessenheit und Kompromisslosigkeit durchströmt wie die Bücher, die ihn auch als Autor weltberühmt machten – allen voran »Geständnisse eines Küchenchefs«. Heute, ein Jahrzehnt später, sind ratgebende Starköche medienpräsenter als schaumschlagende Politiker. Das Kochen ist vom Handwerk zum Hobby und schließlich zur Lifestyle-Rubrik mutiert – zur quotenheischenden Wohlfühlberieselung. In seinem neuen Buch rechnet Anthony Bourdain mit diesem „Imperium der Mittelmäßigkeit” ab und erinnert daran, was in einer Küche fließen muss. Nicht Balsamicoreduktion, sondern Blut, Schweiß und Tränen. Mit 28 Jahren Berufserfahrung in den härtesten Küchen der Welt, der Zen-Weisheit eines Lebenskünstlers und dem ungetrübten Blick eines Outlaws gibt Bourdain schnörkellose Antworten auf brennende Fragen. Warum bezahlen die reichsten Menschen der Welt verlässlich Unsummen für den schlechtesten Fraß? Warum machen die renommiertesten Köche Werbung für den größten Schrott? Was muss jeder Mensch kochen können, um als mündiger Bürger durchzugehen? Anthony Bourdains Aufruf für eine neue Küche ist denkbar einfach: weniger Bullshit, mehr Genuss!
