Radiohead have been called the Beatles true heirs, a group advancing in such leaps and bounds that their contemporaries are trailing in their wake. For a reputation and status like that you would expect a group to be something out of the ordinary. The band formed when Thom Yorke, Johnny Greenwood, Ed O Brien, Colin Greenwood and Phil Selway attended a private boys school near Abingdon, near Oxford, UK, broke up whilst they attended University and reformed in 1991 when they signed a recording deal with Parlophone.The band broke in the USA before having UK success. This enabled them to build up a legion of followers who could associate with their music, songs and lyrics. Their third album, in the UK, "OK Computer" propelled them to international stardom and by 2007 Radiohead had sold in excess of 25 million albums. This is not a music release by the artist or record label and sound qualilty may vary. In this exclusive audiobiography we hear how fame almost caused them to split up, what inspires them in their writing, the relationship they have with their fans and the message they want to give to the world and to then music is the best artform to explain their opinion of society. Fans, music historians and collectors will get a unique insight into Radiohead. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Pete Bruen.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1991, eleven-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard was kidnapped on her morning walk to the school bus. The search for Jaycee made national headlines, and the case was repeatedly featured on America's Most Wanted. But despite her family's tireless efforts, Jaycee's disappearance remained a mystery. Then, in August 2009, a registered sex offender named Phillip Garrido appeared on the University of California, Berkeley, campus alongside two young women whose unusual behavior sparked concern among campus officials and law enforcement. That visit would pave the way for a shocking discovery: That Garrido was Jaycee Lee Dugard's kidnapper. For eighteen years Jaycee had lived on the Garrido property in Antioch, California. Kept in complete isolation, she was repeatedly raped by Garrido, who fathered her two daughters. When news broke of Jaycee's discovery, there was a huge outpouring of relief across the nation. But questions remain: How did the Garridos slip past authorities? And how did Jaycee endure her captivity? This is the story of a girl-next-door who was lost and found. 1. Language: English.

A Macat Analysis of William Cronon's Nature's M...

A winner of the 1992 Bancroft Prize, Nature's Metropolis broke new ground in the burgeoning field of environmental history, while also adding weight to both urban and Western history. Before its publication in 1991, historians generally treated urban and rural areas as distinct from one another, each following separate lines of development and maturity. Using Chicago and its surrounding areas as a model, Cronon's book looks to disprove this idea. It shows how the city-country story really exists as a unified narrative. That is, the city was built on the fruits of its natural surroundings, and those surroundings succeed or fail only in relation to the city. Cronon built his ideas largely on Frederick Jackson Turner's 19th century "frontier thesis," which stressed the effect that taming the wilderness had on the American character. Cronon updates this to argue that capitalist market forces played the major role in changing urban and rural areas together. While some have criticized Cronon for his apparent disdain for human influence in the city-country story, Nature's Metropolis is still an influential book and is particularly lauded by the historical community. 1.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?: Memoirs of a Literary...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Now a major motion picture starring Melissa McCarthy - Lee Israel’s hilarious and shocking memoir of the astonishing caper she carried on for almost two years when she forged and sold more than 300 letters by such literary notables as Dorothy Parker, Edna Ferber, Noel Coward, and many others.  Before turning to her life of crime - running a one-woman forgery business out of a phone booth in a Greenwich Village bar and even dodging the FBI - Lee Israel had a legitimate career as an author of biographies. Her first book on Tallulah Bankhead was a New York Times best seller, and her second, on the late journalist and reporter Dorothy Kilgallen, made a splash in the headlines. But by 1990, almost broke and desperate to hang onto her Upper West Side studio, Lee made a bold and irreversible career change: inspired by a letter she’d received once from Katharine Hepburn, and armed with her considerable skills as a researcher and celebrity biographer, she began to forge letters in the voices of literary greats. Between 1990 and 1991, she wrote more than 300 letters in the voices of, among others, Dorothy Parker, Louise Brooks, Edna Ferber, Lillian Hellman, and Noel Coward - and sold the forgeries to memorabilia and autograph dealers. Exquisitely written, Can You Ever Forgive Me? is “a slender, sordid, and pretty damned fabulous book about her misadventures” (The New York Times Book Review). 1. Language: English.

Tracking the Wild Coomba: The Life of Legendary...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Arguably the greatest extreme skier to ever live, Doug Coombs pioneered hundreds of first descents down the biggest, steepest, most dangerous mountains in the world - from the Grand Teton "Otter Body" in Jackson Hole; to Mount Vinson, the highest point in Antarctica; to far-flung drops such as Wyatt Peak in Kyrgyzstan. He graced magazine covers, wowed moviegoers, became the face of top ski companies, and ascended as the king of big-mountain extreme skiing. His place at the top was confirmed in 1991 when he won the very first World Extreme Ski Competition in Valdez, Alaska. Now his story is told for the first time in Robert Cocuzzo's Tracking the Wild Coomba. From the slopes of his childhood in New England; to the steep chutes of his early career in Montana and Wyoming; to the deep, avalanche-prone powder of his guiding years in Alaska; and, ultimately, to the terrifying terrain of the French Alps, Coombs's greatness was in how he skied. What most people didn't know was that Coombs skied so perfectly in part because he had no other choice - at the age of 16 he crashed off a jump in New Hampshire and broke his neck. Doctors said it was a miracle he wasn't paralyzed, and that another bad fall could kill him. Many believe it was this second chance that inspired the extraordinary life he led until his tragic death in 2006, the result of an attempted rescue of a fellow skier.
