The Girl from the Metropol Hotel: Growing up in...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The prize-winning memoir of one of the world's great writers, about coming of age and finding her voice amid the hardships of Stalinist Russia. Born across the street from the Kremlin in the opulent Metropol Hotel - the setting of the New York Times best-selling novel A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles - Ludmilla Petrushevskaya grew up in a family of Bolshevik intellectuals who were reduced in the wake of the Russian Revolution to waiting in bread lines. In The Girl from the Metropol Hotel, her prizewinning memoir, she recounts her childhood of extreme deprivation - of wandering the streets like a young Edith Piaf, singing for alms, and living by her wits like Oliver Twist, a diminutive figure far removed from the heights she would attain as an internationally celebrated writer. As she unravels the threads of her itinerant upbringing - of feigned orphandom, of sleeping in freight cars and beneath the dining tables of communal apartments, of the fugitive pleasures of scraps of food - we see, in her remarkable lack of self-pity, her feral instinct and the crucible in which her gift for giving voice to a nation of survivors was forged. "From heartrending facts Petrushevskaya concocts a humorous and lyrical account of the toughest childhood and youth imaginable.... It [belongs] alongside the classic stories of humanity's beloved plucky child heroes: Edith Piaf, Charlie Chaplin, the Artful Dodger, Gavroche, David Copperfield.... The child is irresistible and so is the adult narrator who creates a poignant portrait from the rags and riches of her memory." (Anna Summers, from the introduction) 1. Language: English.

Lotus 18
45,00 € *

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Lotus 18 was a race car designed by Colin Chapman for use by Lotus in Formula Junior, Formula Two, and Formula One. It was the first mid-engined car built by Lotus and was a marked improvement over Chapman's early and only moderately successful front- engined formula cars, the 12 and 16. It was introduced for the 1960 F1, F2 and FJ seasons. As a stop-gap before the introduction of the 18's successor models, the Lotus 20 and 21, some 18 chassis were rebodied with 21 skins to create the interim Lotus 18/21 hybrid derivative. The car was a classic Chapman design, being extremely light and simple, the body was made up of lightweight panels bolted to heavily-triangulated tube frame (almost spaceframe) chassis. Thus the car was rigid and strong, maintaining the 16's forward weight distribution despite the engine moving behind the driver.

46,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Walt & Skeezix' is the first-ever collection of the classic twentieth-century newspaper strip 'Gasoline Alley,' and 'Book One' is the beginning of a handsome multivolume series edited and designed by comics virtuoso Chris Ware Chris Ware has often cited 'Gasoline Alley' as one of his favorite comic strips ever, and he has lovingly edited and designed W'alt & Skeezix: Book One,' the first-ever collection of the classic newspaper strip created by one of the pioneering giants of American comic strips, Frank King. Not only does this volume reprint the first two years of the strip in which King's friendly and nostalgic imagination took shape but each book in the series features an eighty-page color introduction by Jeet Heer of Canada's 'National Post.' Each introduction will also feature never-before-seen archival photos and ephemera from the personal collection of King's granddaughter. 'Walt & Skeezix 'is not just a collection of a classic comic strip--it is the story of a great American cartoonist. Few cartoon strips have this kind of longevity and quality; 'Gasoline Alley 'has been with us since 1919 and is a gentle mirror held up to ordinary American life in the early twentieth century. It started as a mild satire on the post-WWI 'craze' for cars, but it wasn't long before it developed into a quirky family story attracting an audience of more than thirty million readers in four hundred-plus newspapers. 'Gasoline Alley,' an affectionate portrait of modern living, is remembered for being the first strip to set itself in contemporary American history. The characters of' Gasoline Alley 'grow up, go to war, and have grandchildren. The strip always reflects the kind, sweet pace oflife.
