Blue Nights Enhanced Edition

by Joan Didion, Blue Nights Enhanced Edition Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Blue Nights Enhanced Edition books, This enhanced eBook edition of Blue Nights includes three short films directed by Griffin Dunne and starring Joan Didion. Each film blends Didion's incisive prose with images and mementos from her daughter's life. From one of our most powerful writers, Blue Nights is a work of stunning frankness about losing a daughter. Richly textured with bits of her own childhood and married life with her husband, John Gregory Dunne, and daughter, Quintana Roo, this new book by Joan Didion examines her thoughts, fears, and doubts regarding having children, illness, and growing old. Blue Nights opens on July 26, 2010, as Didion thinks back to Quintana’s wedding in New York seven years before. Today would be her wedding anniversary. This fact triggers vivid snapshots of Quintana’s childhood—in Malibu, in Brentwood, at school in Holmby Hills. Reflecting on her daughter but also on her role as a parent, Didion asks the candid questions any parent might about how she feels she failed either because cues were not taken or perhaps displaced. “How could I have missed what was clearly there to be seen?” Finally, perhaps we all remain unknown to each other. Seamlessly woven in are incidents Didion sees as underscoring her own age, something she finds hard to acknowledge, much less accept. Blue Nights—the long, light evening hours that signal the summer solstice, “the opposite of the dying of the brightness, but also its warning”—like The Year of Magical Thinking before it, is an iconic book of incisive and electric honesty, haunting and profoundly moving.

The Gershwins And Me Enhanced Edition

by Michael Feinstein, The Gershwins And Me Enhanced Edition Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Gershwins And Me Enhanced Edition books, This special enhanced eBook includes twelve Gershwin classics performed by Michael Feinstein and commentary from the author on the music and the lives of George and Ira Gershwin. From celebrated entertainer Michael Feinstein comes a beautifully illustrated account of the lives and legacies of the Gershwins—told through stories of twelve of their greatest songs. The “Ambassador of the Great American Songbook” Michael Feinstein was just twenty years old when he got the chance of a lifetime: a job with his hero, Ira Gershwin. During their six-year partnership, the two became close friends. Feinstein blossomed under Gershwin’s mentorship and Gershwin was reinvigorated by the younger man’s zeal for his and his brother George’s legacy. Now, in The Gershwins and Me, the only book of its kind, Michael Feinstein shares unforgettable stories and reminiscences from the music that defined American popular song, along with rare Gershwin memorabilia he’s collected through the years. From “Strike Up the Band” to “Love Is Here to Stay,” each of the twelve chapters highlights one of the Gershwins’ classic songs, exploring the brothers’ lives, illuminating what the music meant to them, and telling the stories of how their iconic tunes came to life. Throughout the star-studded narrative, Feinstein unfolds the moving chronicle of his own life with the Gershwins, describing his vision for their enduring presence today. No other writer could give us such an authoritative inside perspective on these titans of American culture—and no other writer could include such a soulful collection of music as Feinstein’s original recordings of the twelve songs. A timeless classic and the definitive account of the Gershwins and their legacy, The Gershwins and Me will having you humming with every turn of the page.

Blaue Stunden

by Joan Didion, Blaue Stunden Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Blaue Stunden books, "In manchen Breitengraden gibt es vor der Sommersonnenwende und danach eine Zeitspanne, nur wenige Wochen, in der die Dämmerungen lang und blau werden. Während der blauen Stunden glaubt man, der Tag wird nie enden. Wenn die Zeit der blauen Stunden sich dem Ende nähert (und das wird sie, sie endet), erlebt man ein Frösteln, eine Vorahnung der Krankheit: das blaue Licht verschwindet, die Tage werden schon kürzer, der Sommer ist vorbei." In Blaue Stunden erinnert Joan Didion sich an ihre Tochter Quintana, daran,wie es war, sie aufwachsen zu sehen und Abschied zu nehmen, als Quintana mit nur 39 Jahren starb. Eine sehr persönliche Bilanz der großen amerikanischen Autorin und ein ehrliches Buch über Tod und Vergänglichkeit, Erinnerung und Alter, über das, was wir verlieren, und das, was bleibt.
