Without him, I wouldn't have been able to write the plays that I have written' - Simon Stephens'An incredibly useful writing helpmeet. As witty and humane as its author' - Emma Thompson'What Stephen taught me has shaped my mind and I have shared this with countless writers' - Kwame Kwei-Armah'Stephen was a true mentor... I still draw upon much of what he taught me today' - Abi Morgan'Like a bird in the air, Stephen was utterly in his element as a teacher. We sat spellbound' - Phyllida Lloyd'I had the great pleasure of working with Stephen on his play The Libertine. Would that all playwrights had his openness, his talent, his hard-headedness, his experience, his enthusiasm, his audacity, his complexity, and perhaps best of all his talent and interest in eliciting the best in others' - John Malkovich'Stephen's wit was legendary. "Wit": from the proto-Indo-European word "weid" meaning "to see"/"to know". Stephen "saw" clearly and "knew" profoundly; which is why we sought out the clarity of his words and learned deeply from his laughter' - Simon McBurney'Stephen was more than just a great bloke whose easy laugh set a room alight; he was a genuine geek, an obsessive about the craft of writing... As I read, I was reminded again of his deep connection to plays and how they work. There are gems in here, there is guidance, there is the spirit of Stephen Jeffreys' - April De Angelis

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Long considered one of the most vibrant and compelling accounts of the battle of Gettysburg by a young resident of the town. Fifteen-year-old Matilda "Tillie" Pierce saw Union general Buford enter town with his cavalry, saw the rout of the first day of fighting, and the Confederates streaming through the town. She gave water to many Union soldiers, including General George Gordon Meade, the new commander of the Army of the Potomac. She went on to help the nurses and surgeons care for wounded at a house down on Taneytown Road, sitting to comfort the dying General Stephen Weed. Tillie saw the mangled bodies of men and horses, and the incredible destruction of the fields and farms. A quarter-century later, Tillie, now married and a mother, sat down and penned this remarkable account for her family. Every memoir of the American Civil War provides us with another view of the catastrophe that changed the country forever. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an audiobook. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian V. Hunt, Claire Dayton.

Cecil Beaton's Bright Young Things
33,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) is one of the most celebrated British Portrait photographers of the twentieth century and is renowned for his images of elegance, glamour and style. His influence on portrait photography was profound and lives on today in the work of many contemporary photographers. Beaton used his camera, his ambition and his larger-than-life personality to mingle with a flamboyant and rebellious group of artists, writers, socialites and partygoers. These 'Bright Young Things' captured the spirit of the roaring twenties and thirties as they cut a dramatic swathe through the epoch. Beaton quickly developed a reputation for his beautiful, often striking and fantastic photographs, which culminated in his portraits of Queen Elizabeth in 1939. More than a photographer, Beaton became a society fixture in his own right. In a series of themed chapters, covering Beaton's first self-portraits and earliest sitters to his time at Cambridge and as principle society photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair, over 60 leading figures who sat for him are profiled and the dazzling parties, pageants and balls of the period are brought to life. Among this glittering cast are Beaton's socialite sisters Baba and Nancy Beaton, Stephen Tennant, the Mitfords, Siegfried Sassoon, Evelyn Waugh and Daphne Du Maurier. Beaton's photographs are complemented by a wide range of letters, drawings and ephemera and contextualised by artworks created by those in his circle, including Christopher Wood, Rex Whistler and Henry Lamb.

At high noon on a cold November day in 1974, sixty-seven-year-old John Wayne faced off with the staff of the Harvard Lampoon on the famous campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The students had issued their challenge by calling the beloved American icon a fraud. Wayne, who had his new movie McQ to promote, responded by saying he would be happy to show his film in the pseudo-intellectual swamps of Harvard Square. After the screening, without writers, the former USC footballer delivered a classic performance. When one smart young man asked where he got his phony toupee, Wayne insisted the hair was real. It wasn't his, but it was real. The appreciative underclassmen loved him and after the Q and A session, they all sat down to dinner. Later Wayne, who was suffering greatly from both gout and the after effects of lung cancer (sadly the Duke only had five years to live), said that day at Harvard was the best time he ever had. Just when you thought you've heard everything about Hollywood comes a totally original new book. Hollywood Stories: Short, Entertaining Anecdotes About the Stars and Legends of the Movies by Stephen Schochet contains a timeless treasure trove of colorful vignettes featuring an amazing all-star cast of icons including John Wayne, Charlie Chaplin, Walt Disney, Jack Nicholson, Johnny Depp, Shirley Temple, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, Errol Flynn and many others both past and contemporary.

A professional tour guide in Hollywood, Stephen Schochet has researched and told thousands of entertaining anecdotes for ov 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chaz Allen.

Hollywood vs. The Author , Hörbuch, Digital, 1,...

It’s no secret that authors have a love-hate relationship with Hollywood. The oft-repeated cliché that “the book was better than the movie” holds true for more reasons than the average reader will ever know. When asked about selling their book rights to Hollywood authors like to joke that they drive their manuscripts to the border of Arizona and California and toss them over the fence, driving back the way they came at breakneck speed. This is probably because Hollywood just doesn’t “get it.” Its vision for the film or TV series rarely seems to match the vision of the author. And for those rare individuals who’ve had the fortune of sitting across the desk from one of the myriad, interchangeable development execs praising the brilliance of their work while ticking off a never-ending list of notes for the rewrite, the pros of pitching their work to Hollywood rarely outweigh the cons.Stephen Jay Schwartz has sat on both sides of that desk - first as the Director of Development for film director Wolfgang Petersen, then as a screenwriter and author pitching his work to the film and television industry. He’s seen all sides of what is known in this small community as “Development Hell.” The process is both amusing and heartbreaking. Most authors whose work contains a modicum of commercial potential eventually find themselves in “the room” taking a shot at seeing their creations re-visualized by agents, producers or development executives. What they often discover is that their audience is younger and less worldly as themselves. What passes for “story notes” is often a mishmash of vaguely connected ideas intended to put the producer’s personal stamp on the project.Hollywood vs. The Author is a collection of non-fiction anecdotes by authors who’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the development room firsthand - some who have successfully managed to straddle the two worlds, seeing their works morph into the kinds of fe 1.

Running: The Autobiography , Hörbuch, Digital, ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

World snooker champion Ronnie O'Sullivan's first-volume autobiography Ronnie was a major best seller, acclaimed for its candour and insight into the life of a top sports star. In his second book, Ronnie reflects on how much of his life has been running away or running towards (often inadvisable) things. Running is my drug. To be honest, drugs (and alcohol) used to be my drug, but now I've got the healthiest addiction going. Running is what has helped me fight my demons, win five world snooker championships, and cope with all the crap life's thrown at me. They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and in this book I look at everything that hasn't killed me, but has had a good go - my addictive personality, depression, my dad's murder conviction, the painful break-up with the mother of my children, the difficulty of balancing family life with that of a sportsman. Those are the downers. But it's also about the great things in my life - my kids, snooker, my dad's release from prison, great mates who have helped me, and the psychiatrist Dr Steve Peters who has taught me how not to run away from life when it gets tricky. For the first time, I explain some of my madder moments - why I walked out in the middle of a match against Stephen Hendry, why I sat with a wet cloth over my face in a match against Mark King. This is a book about what it takes to be a champion - the sacrifices you have to make, the obsessive practice, the selfishness. Finally, it's a book about what it's like to get the buzz; and I hope anybody who's ever got the running buzz will relate to this. Since turning professional in 1992, Ronnie O'Sullivan has clocked up an incredible number of awards and trophies, including the Embassy World Championship, the China Open, the Regal Championships, the Benson & Hedges Masters, and the British Open. In May 2012 he won the World Championship and announced his retirement. He then 1. Language: English. Narrator: David John.

1. "Jo Serves Brenda After the Bar": While out one night Jo saw a really sexy black woman sitting at the bar. She had long black hair and really long sexy legs. Although she was sitting down, Jo could see she was a tall lady and Jo liked that. Jo smiled at the woman and she smiled back so Jo approached her. 2. "Sammy Tricks Sophia": "Oh please, Sammy, you won't say anything to my husband will you?" Sophia asked in a begging way. "Maybe I will; maybe I won't," Sammy replied, smiling at Sophia. Sammy walked slowly toward Sophia looking her directly in the eyes, and when she got close enough she put her lips to Brenda's, she kissed her. 3. "She Punishes Her Cheating Husband": Jacob tugged on the restraints, but they wouldn't budge. His wife Tina stood at the foot of the bed looking over him, smiling smugly. In a dirty fantasy, this might have been the dream scenario; his wife and another woman tying him to the bed and exploiting him until he begged for sweet mercy, but this wasn't a fantasy. This was real life and it was happening after his wife had caught him fooling around with another woman. 4. "Jenna Makes Her Husband Serve a Shemale": The blonde had now begun to recover from being caught and sat up in the bed. She reached for her shirt that was lying on the floor and put it on. "Well, I better go, now, Stevie," she said, tossing her long bleached hair back from her face. "I can see that you've got some things to talk about." Jenna stared at the woman in outrage. "Stevie, I hope that you didn't pay her too much. She looks a bit on the used side to me," Jenna said tartly. "Pay me?" the blonde shouted. "Lady, who the hell do you think you are?" "I think I am the wife of the man that you were just playing with as well as the owner of this home," Jenna shouted back. "Stephen, seriously, what were you thinking? We will have to burn the bed and everything else that this piece of garbage has infected. Of course, I would 1. Language: English. Narrator: K. Krutz.
