Book Summary:

International Bestseller: A novel of youthful love and loss and “a powerful evocation of the war years” in England (The Guardian). On a hot August evening in 1939, cousins Oliver, Calypso, Polly, Walter, and Sophy spent one last night together, celebrating the end of summer, at the home of their aunt and uncle. Now, forty years later, as the motley cast of characters drive to the funeral of one of their own, they recall how important that night truly was—and all that came after. From Oliver, whose desperation to prove himself in war ended up as his downfall, to Calypso, whose flirtations landed her in an unlikely marriage with even less likely results, to Sophy, whose secrets from that night haunted her for the rest of her life, each of them recalls the twisted paths of love and betrayal they walked as the country came apart around them under the coming shadow of World War II. Mary Wesley masterfully interweaves tragedy and humor in this “extraordinarily accomplished and fast-moving” novel, presenting a tale of both the world at large and the dalliances, allegiances, and losses of her expertly crafted characters (Financial Times).

Book Summary:

Julia Roberts played a prostitute, famously, in Pretty Woman. So did Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver, Jane Fonda in Klute, Anna Karina in Vivre sa vie, Greta Garbo in Anna Christie, and Charlize Theron, who won an Academy Award for Monster. This engaging and generously illustrated study explores the depiction of female prostitute characters and prostitution in world cinema, from the silent era to the present-day industry. From the woman with control over her own destiny to the woman who cannot get away from her pimp, Russell Campbell shows the diverse representations of prostitutes in film. Marked Women classifies fifteen recurrent character types and three common narratives, many of them with their roots in male fantasy. The “Happy Hooker,” for example, is the liberated woman whose only goal is to give as much pleasure as she receives, while the “Avenger,” a nightmare of the male imagination, represents the threat of women taking retribution for all the oppression they have suffered at the hands of men. The “Love Story,” a common narrative, represents the prostitute as both heroine and anti-heroine, while “Condemned to Death” allows men to manifest, in imagination only, their hostility toward women by killing off the troubled prostitute in an act of cathartic violence. The figure of the woman whose body is available at a price has fascinated and intrigued filmmakers and filmgoers since the very beginning of cinema, but the manner of representation has also been highly conflicted and fiercely contested. Campbell explores the cinematic prostitute as a figure shaped by both reactionary thought and feminist challenges to the norm, demonstrating how the film industry itself is split by fascinating contradictions.

Book Summary:

Was man von einer Sprache in der Schule lernt, ist eine Sache, was man wirklich spricht, eine andere. Für Reisende, die nicht nur verstanden werden möchten, sondern auch verstehen wollen, "was Sache ist", bieten die Slang-Titel der Kauderwelsch-Reihe Wörter, Sätze und Ausdrücke der Umgangssprache, die man täglich hört, aber vom Lehrer verschwiegen wurden und auch kaum im Wörterbuch zu finden sind. Dieser Slangführer richtet sich an Neuseelandreisende, die über ein gewisses Maß an englischen Sprachkenntnissen verfügen, sich aber noch nicht lange genug in Neuseeland aufgehalten haben, um in den Code des dortigen Umgangsenglisch eingeweiht zu sein. Eine Vielzahl von Situationen auf Neuseelands Boden können einen an die Grenzen des Schulenglisch heranführen: Gespräche bei "shark&taties" (fish&chips), im "local pub" mit den "fishermen" oder während einer Tour mit einem Kiwi-Busunternehmen. Aber "no worries, mate", dieses Buch hilft. Ausstattung: 112 Seiten, komplett in Farbe, handliches Format, ca. 1000 Stichworte für den alltäglichen Gebrauch erklärt und praxisnah geordnet.
