Gertrude Stein Has Arrived: The Homecoming of a Literary Legend

Gertrude Stein Has Arrived: The Homecoming of a Literary Legend by Roy Morris Jr.
English | September 10th, 2019 | ISBN: 142143153X | 264 pages | EPUB | 2.40 MB

In 1933, experimental writer and longtime expatriate Gertrude Stein skyrocketed to overnight fame with the publication of an unlikely best seller, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. Pantomiming the voice of her partner Alice, The Autobiography was actually Gertrude's work. But whoever the real author was, the uncharacteristically lucid and readable book won over the hearts of thousands of Americans, whose clamor to meet Gertrude and Alice in person convinced them to return to America for the first time in thirty years from their self-imposed exile in France.

I've Seen the Future and I'm Not Going: The Art Scene and Downtown New York in the 1980s

I've Seen the Future and I'm Not Going: The Art Scene and Downtown New York in the 1980s by Peter McGough
English | September 17th, 2019 | ISBN: 1524747041 | 304 pages | EPUB | 145.49 MB

Brilliantly funny, frank, and shattering, this is the bittersweet memoir by Peter McGough of his life with artist David McDermott. Set in New York's Lower East Side of the 1980s and mid-1990s, it is also a devastatingly candid look at the extreme naiveté and dysfunction that would destroy both their lives.

Elio e le storie tese - Vite bruciacchiate
Italiano | 2012 | 330 pages | ASIN: B009UWXPUG | EPUB | 1 MB

La storia di Elio e le Storie Tese non è la storia di un gruppo qualsiasi. Da quando si formarono (nel lontano inizio degli anni '80) ebbero ammiratori, parenti, fidanzate, nemici, ricoverati in ospedali psichiatrici, colleghi che non riuscirono più a prescindere da loro. In questo libro ne viene presentata la storia, raccontata in parte da Elio (con due introduzioni che corrispondono ciascuna a una fase diversa della vita del gruppo), in parte dalle Storie Tese, in parte dagli amici, le donne, i collaboratori, i nemici e i parenti che li hanno seguiti da subito, li hanno persi, li hanno ritrovati o non li vogliono ritrovare più. I locali che hanno fatto la loro storia - dallo Zelig alle Scimmie, i negozi di musica in cui hanno lasciato traccia di sé…

Antonio Vaccaro - Carlo Gesualdo Principe di Venosa
Italiano | 2013 | 236 pages | ASIN: B00CS6QYC2 | EPUB | 3,5 MB

"Principe dei musici" e "principe uxoricida" (per aver egli assassinato la moglie Maria d’Avalos e l’amante Fabrizio Carafa, sorpresi a casa Gesualdo), ipercritico genio musicale e uomo sfuggente, ostinatamente arroccato dietro lo schermo della sua "malattia" a difesa di una aristocratica privacy: questo un profilo sommario di Carlo Gesualdo (1566-1613). Di lui, Principe di Venosa, si scrisse che, se fosse vissuto "all’epoca dei Greci, gli avrebbero fatto una statua di marmo e d’oro". Questa biografia ne percorre le tappe della complessa e tormentata vicenda umana, raccontando e documentando (sulla base di uno sterminato epistolario e di inedite pagine di archivio), felicemente mediando tra l’istanza del narrare e il rispetto dei fatti storici, decifrando e traducendo l’incontro del personaggio biografato con la realtà contestuale..
