ggf. zzgl. Versand

A hilarious fantasy sequel to The Dark Lord of Derkholm, set at the University after the ‘fantasy world' tours have stopped, and centred around six students (one a Griffin) and the bumbling new University Head Wizard. From the ‘Godmother of Fantasy', Diana Wynne Jones. The Year of the Griffin is the sequel to The Dark Lord of Derkholm, set in the same world several years after the abolition of commercial ‘fantasy world' tourism from our world. The University now aims to produce competent wizards to repair the damage caused by the tours. It's broke, and out of date in terms of what it teaches. The new head, Wizard Corkoran, is obsessed with becoming the first man to visit the moon, and so is mostly preoccupied, and the new faculty is mostly inexperienced. Wizard Corkoran has selected children from wealthy families to fill his own first-year classes, hoping to beg for money. But his students turn out to be more than he expected in oh-so-many ways, and despite the incompetence of their teacher, it falls to them to save the university… and themselves. 1. Language: English.

The Big Fella: Babe Ruth and the World He Creat...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From Jane Leavy, the award-winning, New York Times best-selling author of The Last Boy and Sandy Koufax, comes the definitive biography of Babe Ruth - the man Roger Angell dubbed "the model for modern celebrity."He lived in the present tense - in the camera’s lens. There was no frame he couldn’t or wouldn’t fill. He swung the heaviest bat, earned the most money, and incurred the biggest fines. Like all the new-fangled gadgets then flooding the marketplace - radios, automatic clothes washers, Brownie cameras, microphones, and loudspeakers - Babe Ruth "made impossible events happen". Aided by his crucial partnership with Christy Walsh - business manager, spin doctor, damage control wizard, and surrogate father, all stuffed into one tightly buttoned double-breasted suit - Ruth drafted the blueprint for modern athletic stardom.His was a life of journeys and itineraries - from uncouth to couth, spartan to spendthrift, abandoned to abandon; from Baltimore to Boston to New York, and back to Boston at the end of his career for a finale with the only team that would have him. There were road trips and hunting trips; grand tours of foreign capitals and post-season promotional tours, not to mention those 714 trips around the bases.After hitting his 60th home run in September 1927 - a total that would not be exceeded until 1961, when Roger Maris did it with the aid of the extended modern season - he embarked on the mother of all barnstorming tours, a three-week victory lap across America, accompanied by Yankee teammate Lou Gehrig. Walsh called the tour a "Symphony of Swat." The Omaha World Herald called it "the biggest show since Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey, and seven other associated circuses offered their entire performance under one tent." In The Big Fella, acclaimed biographer Jane Leavy recreates that 21-day circus and in so doing captures the romp and the pathos that defined Ruth’s life and times 1. Language: English.

Anyone can run into an unexpected problem, including Merlin. In this episode, the wizard has to do something quickly to make up for an error that involves Robert from Portland. Merlin's hastily determined solution depends on cooperation from superhero Blue Knight. Thus begins a Blue Knight adventure in Portland, Oregon. What starts as a low-key, fun outing turns into something much more demanding when crime elements surface at the Blazers basketball arena. New crime adversaries from Seattle are after expanding their influence in the Northwest and have selected Portland as their target. Their initial effort is focused on 20,000 hostages and a billion dollars in ransoms. People will cooperate or be forced to watch a savage animal attack on the basketball court floor on two captives failing to deliver the ransoms. Roger from Nebraska and friend Ned from Chicago team up with Robert from Portland to thwart the gangsters from Seattle. Along the way Ned, Roger, and Roger's alternate superhero identity, Blue Knight, are treated to tours of Portland and Western Oregon. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Allen Pollens.

The Hirschfeld Century: Portrait of an Artist a...
24,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

I am down to a pencil, a pen, and a bottle of ink. I hope one day to eliminate the pencil. Al Hirschfeld redefined caricature and exemplified Broadway and Hollywood, enchanting generations with his mastery of line. His art appeared in every major publication during nine decades of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, as well as on numerous book, record, and program covers; film posters and publicity art; and on fifteen U.S. postage stamps. Now, The Hirschfeld Century brings together for the first time the artist's extraordinary eighty-two-year career, revealed in more than 360 of his iconic black-and-white and color drawings, illustrations, and photographs-his influences, his techniques, his evolution from his earliest works to his last drawings, and with a biographical text by David Leopold, Hirschfeld authority, who, as archivist to the artist, worked side by side with him and has spent more than twenty years documenting the artist's extraordinary output. Here is Hirschfeld at age seventeen, working in the publicity department at Goldwyn Pictures (1920-1921), rising from errand boy to artist; his year at Universal (1921); and, beginning at age eighteen, art director at Selznick Pictures, headed by Louis Selznick (father of David O.) in New York. We see Hirschfeld, at age twenty-one, being influenced by the stylized drawings of Miguel Covarrubias, newly arrived from Mexico (they shared a studio on West Forty-Second Street), whose caricatures appeared in many of the most influential magazines, among them Vanity Fair. We see, as well, how Hirschfeld's friendship with John Held Jr. (Held's drawings literally created the look of the Jazz Age) was just as central as Covarrubias to the young artist's development, how Held's thin line affected Hirschfeld's early caricatures. Here is the Hirschfeld century, from his early doodles on the backs of theater programs in 1926 that led to his work for the drama editors of the New York Herald Tribune (an association that lasted twenty years) to his receiving a telegram from The New York Times, in 1928, asking for a two-column drawing of Sir Harry Lauder, a Scottish vaudeville singing sensation making one of his (many) farewell tours, an assignment that began a collaboration with the Times that lasted seventy-five years, to Hirschfeld's theater caricatures, by age twenty-five, a drawing appearing every week in one of four different New York newspapers. Here, through Hirschfeld's pen, are Ethel Merman, Benny Goodman, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Katharine Hepburn, the Marx Brothers, Barbra Streisand, Elia Kazan, Mick Jagger, Ella Fitzgerald, Laurence Olivier, Martha Graham, et al. . . . Among the productions featured: Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, Rent, Guys and Dolls, The Wizard of Oz (Hirschfeld drew five posters for the original release), Gone with the Wind, The Sopranos, and more. Here as well are his brilliant portraits of writers, politicians, and the like, among them Ernest Hemingway (a pal from 1920s Paris), Tom Wolfe, Charles de Gaulle, Nelson Mandela, Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, and every president from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Bill Clinton. Sumptuous and ambitious, a book that gives us, through images and text, a Hirschfeld portrait of an artist and his age.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Year of the Griffin is a 2000 novel by British children's author Diana Wynne Jones. It is the sequel to The Dark Lord of Derkholm and is mainly centred on the exploits of a group of students during their first year at the University. Eight years have passed since the defeat of Mr Chesney and the end of the Pilgrim Parties, and the University is having problems. The University has financial issues, and is being hopelessly mismanaged by Wizard Corkoran, whose aim, or rather, obsession, is to be the first man on the moon. Corkoran and the rest of the current University staff think that the point of the University is to churn out as many wizards with only a secure, basic grasp of magic as they can, in order to remedy the damage Mr. Chesney's tours have caused. Although making certain that the students grasp the basics is no bad thing, the University leaves out a lot of theory and believes that magic can only be done in one set way.

No Handbook for the Homeless
4,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

There is no Handbook for the Homeless. Nobody teaches seminars or gives guided tours that promise to give you the inside scoop on where to flop when you're homeless. You have to figure it out as you go along. Few of us plan for it. Perhaps, in today's cliché driven world, it means we planned to fail. But how much farther can you fall than sleeping in the cemetery, curled up on your son's grave because it's the only piece of real estate you own. At best, if you find yourself homeless, if you haven't burned all your karma, you will find a spirit guide. More likely the guide will find you. In this first novel by Joyce Trainor, Aileen Roark's middle class life is forever changed by a drunk driver. Overwhelmed by medical and legal debt, Aileen retreats to a tiny rundown apartment and tries desperately to rebuild her life with only her son's enormous dog for companionship. But the downward spiral continues and Aileen stumbles into a world unknown to her, hidden from wealthy tourists and part time residents in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico. It's a place where a night on the street can mean a death sentence or a 'Go Straight to Jail' card and change everything you believe about the ragged people standing on the corner. Street dwelling Wizard, a relic of the communes that dotted New Mexico in the 1960s and 70s; Father Rico, elderly priest to an impoverished parish; ex-boxer Cesar Jesus Chavez, now night manager at a cheap motel; and the quirky Billy James Dean, Esquire, defender of the almost guilty, help Aileen survive.
