The Art of Memoir
11,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Credited with sparking the current memoir explosion, Mary Karr's The Liars' Club spent more than a year at the top of the New York Times list. She followed with two other smash bestsellers: Cherry and Lit, which were critical hits as well. For thirty years Karr has also taught the form, winning teaching prizes at Syracuse. (The writing program there produced such acclaimed authors as Cheryl Strayed, Keith Gessen, and Koren Zailckas.) In The Art of Memoir, she synthesizes her expertise as professor and therapy patient, writer and spiritual seeker, recovered alcoholic and "black belt sinner," providing a unique window into the mechanics and art of the form that is as irreverent, insightful, and entertaining as her own work in the genre.Anchored by excerpts from her favorite memoirs and anecdotes from fellow writers' experience, The Art of Memoir lays bare Karr's own process. (Plus all those inside stories about how she dealt with family and friends get told- and the dark spaces in her own skull probed in depth.) As she breaks down the key elements of great literary memoir, she breaks open our concepts of memory and identity, and illuminates the cathartic power of reflecting on the past; anybody with an inner life or complicated history, whether writer or reader, will relate. Joining such classics as Stephen King's On Writing and Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird, The Art of Memoir is an elegant and accessible exploration of one of today's most popular literary forms-a tour de force from an accomplished master pulling back the curtain on her craft.

With 50 million copies sold, Black Beauty is one of the best-selling books of all time. While forthrightly teaching animal welfare, it also teaches how to treat people with kindness, sympathy, and respect. The story is narrated in the first "person" as an autobiographical memoir told by a horse named Black Beauty—including his carefree days as a colt on an English farm, his later difficult life pulling cabs in London, and his happy retirement in the country. 1.

Pulling Taffy: A Year with Dementia and Other A...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Writer and singer Tinky Weisblat kept a journal during the final year of her mother’s life. Jan Weisblat was 93 and suffered from dementia. Pulling Taffy shares journal entries, history, family photographs, and recipes that document their time together. It pays tribute to the vibrant spirit of Jan, whom her daughter called Taffy. This informal, candid memoir explores the ways in which Taffy’s view of the world changes as her Alzheimer’s disease develops... and the ways in which it remains the same. Tinky and Taffy move through frustration to joy as they learn to embrace life despite the dementia. They survive their ups and downs with the help of community, music, nature, pets, and laughter. "I began by writing about what I was losing," writes Tinky toward the end of the book. "Somewhere along the line I started writing about what I was finding. In short, a burden was transformed into a privilege." Pulling Taffy will inspire caregivers and other people going through stressful situations. And its combination of sweetness and humor will appeal to the general reading public. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tinky Weisblat.

The Only Girl
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A raucous and vividly dishy memoir by the only woman writer on the masthead of Rolling Stone Magazine in the early Seventies. " A straight-talking, utterly indiscrete, deliciously shocking story about being in the right place at the right time pretty much all the time. What a hoot!" --Bill Buford, journalist and author of Among the Thugs and Heat 'Robin has written a frank, witty and loving memoir about growing up in the milieu of the seventies at Rolling Stone. Her honesty and insight brought all those times back, some of RS's wildest and wackiest early days' Jann Wenner, Co-Founder and Publisher of Rolling Stone 'Compulsively readable, laugh out loud funny and beautifully crafted. I ate up every word. If you thought they had more fun back then, this book will prove that you were right' Ruth Reichl, bestselling author of My Kitchen Year With irreverent humour and remarkable nerve, Green spills stories of sparring with Dennis Hopper on a film junket in the desert, scandalising fans of David Cassidy and spending a legendary evening on a water bed in Robert F. Kennedy Jr's dorm room. In the seventies, Green was there as Hunter S. Thompson crafted Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and now, with a distinctly gonzo female voice, she reveals her side of that tumultuous time in America. Pulling back the curtain on Rolling Stone magazine in its prime, The Only Girl is a stunning tribute to a bygone era and a publication that defined a generation.

Dead Woman Laughing: An Actor's 'Take' from Bot...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Witty, self-effacing and painfully honest, the themes of life, death and laughter come together as Daphne Ashbrook recounts her many on- and off-screen scrapes with mortality. Packed with rich anecdotes from her career in TV, stage and film, this refreshingly candid and conversational memoir spans a childhood in a theatrical family to pulling back the curtain of Hollywood, revealing the glamour and ridiculousness of a business mired in a struggle between art and profit. Known for both her comic timing and deep emotional portrayals, Daphne has appeared in many TV and film roles including the 1996 Doctor Who movie, in which she played the role of Dr. Grace Holloway and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as the titular character in 'Melora'. Reflecting on her life and her career, Daphne discovers the surprising patterns and hilarious absurdities that accompany being a modern-day professional actor. The result is an amusing, informative and intimate memoir. So pull up a barstool, grab a beer and lose yourself in Dead Woman Laughing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daphne Ashbrook.
