Discover the ultimate collection of film and TV locations with the next instalment in Lonely Planet´s Spotter´s Guide series. Featuring locations from more than 100 of the most iconic scenes ever committed to film, we´ll show you where incredible moments from Indiana Jones , Star Wars , Thelma & Louise , Game of Thrones and many more favourites were shot. Whether you´re sat in the dark of your local cinema, or curled up on the sofa, each film has the rare ability to transport you to amazing destinations around the globe. Inside this book, you´ll be able to explore the real-life locations for some of the most famous productions of all time, filmed in countries including Canada, Australia, Jordan, Croatia, Iceland, Japan, New Zealand, Tunisia and India. Many of these locations effortlessly played themselves, while others were disguised as hostile, alien deserts, futuristic cityscapes, or Jedi hideaways. While a film´s job is make you forget you´re watching one, there are certain locations that can transport you right into the world of a movie. If you want to feel like 007 with a license to kill, you can take a boat out to James Bond Island, otherwise known as Khao Phing Kan, in Thailand, home to The Man with the Golden Gun . If you want to follow in the footsteps of Holly Golightly, then enjoy a coffee and a Danish pastry outside Tiffany´s in Manhattan. Or perhaps you´d like to celebrate something momentous by running up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum like Rocky Balboa. Whether you´re a film buff, a travel addict, or both, this book will help to convince you that CGI is never a substitute for the real thing.

With its bold depiction of four female friends navigating the pitfalls of Manhattan’s dating scene, Sex and the City, which aired on HBO from 1998 to 2004, was a unique television drama that evolved into a ubiquitous and widely debated cultural phenomenon. Deborah Jermyn’s Sex and the City investigates the program’s critical and popular success as well as its lasting cultural impact. To give listeners a complete picture of Sex and the City, Jermyn draws on close textual analysis of selected episodes, existing critical work on the program, testimonies from its stars and producers, and intertextual evidence ranging from the Sex and the City bus tour to fan guides and websites. In this volume Jermyn explores the show’s characters, its careful generic balance of comedy and drama, its mix of both fantasy and realism, and its dedication to the intricacies of women’s friendships. Jermyn notes that in the course of its six seasons Sex and the City emerged as a kind of controversial shorthand to explore the zeitgeist among a generation of post-feminist TV audiences, each week considering issues surrounding femininity, feminism, sexuality, consumerism, and women’s lifestyle choices. Jermyn argues that, in short, Sex and the City’s success and wider cultural impact invite us not just to analyze the particular accomplishments of its writing, design, and performances but to recognize the contribution and significance that television can have on public debate and life outside ´´the box´´. With the 2008 release of a full-length - and long-awaited - feature film version of Sex and the City, the series proves itself once again to be timely and relevant. Fans of the series as well as scholars of television history will enjoy Jermyn’s insightful study. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colleen Patrick.

E-Book basiert auf: 19. Auflage 2018 Wer das erste Mal mitten in der Nacht aus der U-Bahn steigt und auf den Times Square tritt, dem steht nicht selten die Verwirrung ins Gesicht geschrieben: Viele Millionen Watt für Neonbeleuchtung und digitale Berieselung tauchen den berühmten Platz in ein Licht wie in der grellsten Mittagssonne. Die angrenzenden 40 Traditionshäuser des Theaterbezirks entlang des Broadway halten noch immer, was das Funkeln ihrer Fassaden verspricht: Ein Theater- oder Musicalbesuch ist mehr denn je eines der klassischen New-York-Erlebnisse. Wer wiederum von Manhattan kommend an der Bedford Street, der ersten Station auf der anderen Seite des East River, aus der U-Bahn-Station steigt, merkt sofort, dass hier etwas anders ist. Das Tempo ist langsamer, weniger hektisch und die städtebaulichen Dimensionen sind überschaubarer. Die Shops und die Cafés und auch die Menschen in Brooklyn sind extravaganter, cooler, stylisher. Am besten ist dieser Querdenker-Geist in der »Brooklyn Bowl« zu spüren . Nicht unbedingt augenscheinliche, vielmehr magische Momente stehen beim neuen Baedeker im Fokus. Der älteste und berühmteste New Yorker Diner - »Eisenberg´s Sandwich Shop« an der Fifth Avenue Ecke 22nd Street - scheint prädestiniert zu sein für derartiges Erleben: Herrlich, diese gepolsterten Sitzbänke, auf denen sich die Leute aus der Nachbarschaft treffen und für ein paar Dollar endlos Kaffee schlürfen - setzen Sie sich einfach dazu!

New York Times best seller ´´A gripping genetic detective story, and a meditation on the meaning of parenthood and family.” (Jennifer Egan, author of Manhattan Beach)A Washington Post, Vulture, Bustle, Real Simple, PopSugar, and LitHub Most Anticipated Book of 2019 and an Apple Books Best of January 2019From the acclaimed, best-selling memoirist and novelist - ´´a writer of rare talent” (Cheryl Strayed) - a memoir about the staggering family secret uncovered by a genealogy test: an exploration of the urgent ethical questions surrounding fertility treatments and DNA testing, and a profound inquiry of paternity, identity, and love. What makes us who we are? What combination of memory, history, biology, experience, and that ineffable thing called the soul defines us?In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. She woke up one morning and her entire history - the life she had lived - crumbled beneath her.Inheritance is an audiobook about secrets - secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman´s urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story that has been scrupulously hidden from her for more than 50 years, years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history. It is an audiobook about the extraordinary moment we live in - a moment in which science and technology have outpaced not only medical ethics, but also the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover. 1.

Notes on a Banana: A Memoir of Food, Love, and ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The stunning and long-awaited memoir from the beloved founder of the James Beard Award-winning website Leite´s Culinaria - a candid, courageous, and at times laugh-out-loud funny story of family, food, mental illness, and sexual identity. Born into a family of Azorean immigrants, David Leite grew up in the 1960s in a devoutly Catholic blue-collar, food-crazed Portuguese home in Fall River, Massachusetts. A clever and determined dreamer with a vivid imagination and a flair for the dramatic, ´´Banana´´, as his mother endearingly called him, obsessed over proper hair care, yearned to live in a middle-class house with a swinging kitchen door like the ones on television, and fell in love with everything French thanks to his Portuguese and French-Canadian godmother. But David also struggled with the emotional devastation of bipolar disorder. Until he was diagnosed in his mid-30s, David found relief from his wild mood swings in cooking, Julia Child, and a Viking stove he named Thor. Notes on a Banana is his heartfelt, unflinchingly honest, yet tender memoir of growing up, accepting himself, and turning his love of food into an award-winning career. Reminiscing about the people and events that shaped him, David looks back at the highs and lows of his life, from his rejection of being gay and his attempt to ´´turn straight´´ through Aesthetic Realism, a cult in downtown Manhattan, to becoming a writer, cookbook author, and web publisher, to his 23-year relationship with Alan, known to millions of David´s readers and listeners as ´´The One´´, which began with (what else?) food. Woven throughout these stories are the dishes David loves - the tastes that led him to happiness, health, and success. A blend of Kay Redfield Jamison´s An Unquiet Mind; the food memoirs of Ruth Reichl, Anthony Bourdain, and Gabrielle Hamilton; and the character-rich storytelling of Augusten Burroughs, David Sedaris, and Jenny Lawson, Notes on a Banan 1.

Great journalists, at one time or another, have all been characters in their own stories: people with personalities that shaped what they saw and reported and were touched and changed by the experiences about which they wrote, and innovators who borrowed the storytelling techniques of fiction. The Beholder´s Eye showcases the very best of an increasing trend toward personal narrative: Mike Sager stalking Marlon Brando in the Tahitian jungle; J. R. Moehringer´s quest to discover the true identity of an old boxer; Bill Plaschke´s story about a woman with cerebral palsy who runs an obscure Los Angeles Dodgers website; Scott Anderson´s story of his lifetime of covering war after war; Harrington´s own tale of his interracial family´s struggle to persevere; and many others. Written by reporters who were willing to reveal themselves in order to bring listeners insights that were deeper than supposedly objective third-person stories, their articles are an invaluable resource for aspiring journalists, students, and teachers of the craft of writing and any listener with an appreciation for masterful storytelling. ´´My Dinner with Ali´´ 1989, reprinted with permission of the author.
