  • Scar Tissue

    Kiedis, Anthony
    Kiadó: Little Brown Group Uk
    In SCAR TISSUE Anthony Kiedis, charismatic and highly articulate frontman of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, recounts his remarkable life story, and the history of the band itself. Raised in the Midwest, he moved to LA aged eleven to live with his fatherBlackie, purveyor of pills, pot, and cocaine to the Hollywood elite. After a brief child-acting career, Kiedis dropped out of U.C.L.A. and plunged headfirst into the demimonde of the L.A. underground music scene. He formed the band with threeschoolfriends - and found his life's purpose. Crisscrossing the country, the Chili Peppers were musical innovators and influenced a whole generation of musicians.But there's a price to pay for both success and excess and in SCAR TISSUE, Kiedis writes candidly of the overdose death of his soul mate and band mate, Hillel Slovak, and his own ongoing struggle with an addiction to drugs.SCAR TISSUE far transcends the typical rock biography, because Anthony Kiedis is anything but a typical rock star. It is instead a compelling story of dedication and debauchery, of intrigue and integrity, of recklessness and redemption.

  • Pope Francis - The Authorised Biography

    Sergio Rubin - Francesca Ambrogetti
    Kiadó: Hodder & Stoughton Ltd.
    Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was chosen as the next Pope in one of the shortest conclaves in history. He is thefirst Pope Francis, the first Jesuit Pope, the first Pope to come from Latin America. Who is this man, and how did he come to such high position?This book begins with the arrival of Bergoglio's family in Buenos Aires in 1929, travelling from Italy, explores his childhood as one of a family of five, his first job as a factory cleaner and the bout of pneumonia which forced him to reassess his lifecompletely. Then from his early days as a seminarian through his experience as a teacher of psychology and literature, through to his consecration as a cardinal by Pope John Paul II, Bergoglio shares his experiences of faith and life.The difficult subjects are met head on, from the declining numbers of priests to celibacy and even the sex abuse scandals that have rocked the church - and through it all, Bergoglio's humble approach and desire to live an austere and faithful life shinethrough.This is a Pope who will not allow himself to be fitted to a traditional mould - and the world waits with bated breath to see what his time as leader of the world's largest church will bring.

Zavarunk csak fokozódik, ha esetleg olyan angol nyelvű könyvet próbálunk átadni, ami rólunk, magyarokról szól, de nem egyközismert korszak, vagy esemény kapcsán fókuszál a történelmünkre, a kultúránkra.Ezért több mint különleges Varga Attila könyve.

Olyan ez a könyv,mint egy finom bor, amely a maga sok-sok árnyalatával még jobban segíti ránk hangolódni az érdeklődőt és belopja szívébe kis országunkat és a kortárs magyarokat.

    I Saw The Light: The Story of Hank Williams (Film T.) Akciós

    Escott, Colin
    Kiadó: Two Roads
    The book that inspired the major motion picture I Saw the Light.In his brief life, Hank Williams created one of the defining bodies of American music. Songs such as Your Cheatin' Heart, Hey, Good Lookin', and Jambalaya sold millions of records and became the model for virtually all country music that followed.But by the time of his death at age twenty-nine, Williams had drunk and drugged and philandered his way through two messy marriages and out of his headline spot on the Grand Ole Opry. Even though he was country music's top seller, toward the end he wasso famously unreliable that he was lucky to get a booking in a beer hall.Colin Escott's enthralling, definitive biograph -- now the basis of the major motion picture I Saw the Light -- vividly details the singer's stunning rise and his spectacular decline, revealing much that was previously unknown or hidden about the life ofthis country music legend.
