Jill Paris realized at a young age that if she waited for ´´someone special´´ to take her away to far-off destinations, she´d have never left the sofa. In this volume of travel essays she reveals her curious sense of adventure and shows us that an unexpected encounter is often the best souvenir. From attending a couple of strangers´ wedding reception in Belfast, shopping for dirndls in Vienna, miracle-seeking at Lourdes, or discovering the legend of the Black Bitch in Scotland, her penchant for people and a cold pint makes a tasty cocktail mixed with tearful truths and laugh out loud moments that will shock and inspire you to whisk yourself away (if nobody else will). Collection includes stories published in the Travelers´ Tales anthologies The Best Travel Writing 2009, ´´Leave the Lipstick, Take the Iguana´´ and the forthcoming edition of The Best Women´s Travel Writing Volume 9. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Tanya Eby. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/021358de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Crateri #1 Vase by Andrea Anastasio
952,00 € *
zzgl. 69,00 € Versand

An object of both function and fascination—defying easy classification—Crateri #1 Vase is a poetic expression of artist-designer Andrea Anastasio’s material research, extensive world travel, and profound observations about the nature of life in the 21st century. We have our collective eye on Anastasio. He’s unlike any designer we’ve met before. Born in Rome, he currently divides his time between Naples, India, and wherever chance leads him. Always searching for deeper, hidden meanings and authentic expressions of the “self;” he’s made his name as an artist, an academic, a philosopher, an industrial designer—a commercially successful one at that, particularly with his Giocasta lighting collection for Artemide—and an advocate for regional craft production. Not for nothing was the late, great Ettore Sottsass an admirer and mentor. These days, Anastasio is creating objects that may not be easy to define, but that have a beauty and a presence that can’t be ignored. Unveiled last April in Milan in an exhibition entitled Checkpoint, Anastasio’s Crateri #1 is an unexpected assemblage: a hand-blown borosilicate glass vase filled with plastic shopping bags from around the world. The result collides local and global, treasure and trash, art and consumerism. And if for some reason the symbolism doesn’t float your boat, we’re sure you’ll be blown away by how incredibly cool your flowers will look in this fully functional vase. L´ArcoBaleno is also offering Anastasio´s Crateri #2 Vase.

How a nation grew into an empire and the birth of a modern society The Victorian era has dominated the popular imagination like no other period, but these myths and stories also give a very distorted view of the 19th century. The early Victorians were much stranger than we usually imagine, and their world would have felt very different from our own. It was only during the long reign of the Queen that a modern society emerged in unexpected ways. Using character portraits, events, and key moments, Paterson brings the real life of Victorian Britain alive - from the lifestyles of the aristocrats to the lowest ranks of the London slums. This includes the right way to use a fan, why morning visits were conducted in the afternoon, what the Victorian family ate, and how they enjoyed their free time, as well as the Victorian legacy today: convenience food, coffee bars, window shopping, mass media, and celebrity culture. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Meadows. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/010322de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Dimensions is in fact the first novel that I wrote, in the early 1990s. I had the manuscript printed out but never got to the stage of publishing it. I came across the manuscript again recently and I have decided that it deserves to be published, along with my other novels. So here it is, over 20 years after I wrote it: Adam Wilcocks and his family get caught up in an explosion in the in local shopping center. The emotions that he goes through when he learns of the outcome are quite powerful. Also on the scene is John who has just parked up his vehicle when the explosion occurs. He belongs to a small special unit that operates out of London. John is in the middle of his annual vacation but that has to be cut short and he is asked to return to London. Following a meeting of their team, John is contacted by Liam who asks to meet him up. His group wants to deny any responsibility for the explosion. Two members of John´s unit are assassinated shortly after and the unit separates to work on their own. William has been employed as a consultant for over four years by his company. He is about to be made redundant and so has time on his hands while he thinks about looking for another job. He has been experiencing some strange occurrences with some people he sees having a colored dot that only he can see, by their heads. Over the days he thinks he discovers what the dots mean and decides to do something about it, his own little crusade. Dimensions is a passionate, emotional, fast moving action thriller. Nobody really understands what is going on and when they think they get a handle on it, they find they are wrong. The story moves in a full circle and the characters come together to conclude in an unexpected ending. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Milt Bighley.

From New York Times best-selling author Kaui Hart Hemmings comes the highly anticipated follow-up to The Descendants. In the idyllic ski town of Breckenridge, Colorado, Sarah St. John is reeling. Three months ago, her 22-year-old son, Cully, died in an avalanche. Though single, Sarah is hardly alone in her grief. Her father, a retiree, tries to distract her with gadgets from the QVC home shopping channel. Sarah¿s best friend offers life advice by venting details of her own messy divorce. Even Cully¿s father reemerges, stirring more emotions and confusion than Sarah needs. Still, Sarah feels she is facing the stages of grief - the anger, the sadness, the letting go - alone. Barely ready to face the fact she will never again hear the swoosh of her son¿s ski pants, or watch him skateboard past her window, Sarah is surprised when a strange girl arrives on her doorstep. Unexpected and unexplained, she bears a secret from Cully that could change all of their lives forever. Kaui Hart Hemmings highlights the subtle poignancies of grief and relationships in this stunning look at people faced with impossible choices in the wake of a tragedy. With the unsentimental and refreshingly wry style famous for presenting trouble in paradise in The Descendants, Hemmings in The Possibilities considers the difficult questions of what we risk to keep our loved ones close. ungekürzt.
