6 Mile Marker Zero - William McKeen
Auteur : William McKeen
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
True stories of writers and pirates, painters and potheads, guitar pickers and drug merchants in Key West in the 1970s. 
For Hemingway and Fitzgerald, there was Paris in the twenties. For others, later, there was Greenwich Village, Big Sur, and Woodstock. But for an even later generation—one defined by the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Tom McGuane, and Hunter S. Thompson—there was another moveable feast: Key West, Florida.

The small town on the two-by-four-mile island has long been an artistic haven, a wild refuge for people of all persuasions, and the inspirational home for a league of great American writers. Some of the artists went there to be literary he-men. Some went to re-create themselves. Others just went to disappear—and succeeded. No matter what inspired the trip, Key West in the seventies was the right place at the right time, where and

7 Quicklet on Ernest Hemingway's a Moveable Feast (CliffNotes-Like Summary) - Vivian Wagner
Auteur : Vivian Wagner
Genre : Arts & Entertainment

I first read Hemingway’s posthumously-published memoir, A Moveable Feast

(1964), when I was spending my junior year abroad studying at the University of Exeter in England, and I fell in love with the book.

I think it appealed to me especially since I imagined myself to be -- like Hemingway and his friends -- an expatriate, at least for those nine months.

It’s an exquisitely readable book, peppered with all sorts of literary figures I knew through English classes: Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ford Madox Ford.

There is nothing better for a young reader than to learn the secrets and hear the voices of writers known only through their novels, stories, and poems. A Moveable Feast brings them and the 1920s Parisian literary culture that surrounded them alive.


8 Moveable Feasts - Sarah Murray
Auteur : Sarah Murray
Genre : Social Science
Today the average meal has traveled thousands of miles before reaching the dinner table. How on earth did this happen? In fact, long-distance food is nothing new and, since the earliest times, the things we eat and drink have crossed countries and continents. Through delightful anecdotes and astonishing facts, Moveable Feasts tells their stories.

For the ancient Romans, the amphora---a torpedo-shaped pot that fitted snugly into the ship's hold---was the answer to moving millions of tons of olive oil from Spain to Italy. Napoleon offered a reward to anyone who could devise a way of preserving and transporting food for soldiers. (What he got was the tin can.) Today temperature-controlled shipping containers allow companies to send their frozen salmon to China, where it's thawed, filleted, refrozen, and sent back to the United States for sale in supermarkets as "fresh" Atl

9 A Moveable Famine - John Skoyles
Auteur : John Skoyles
Genre : Literary
This is the story of a boy from working class Queens who discovers poetry, an unlikely obsession that leads him from a Jesuit college's all male, sex-starved campus to the St. Mark's Poetry Project, and then to the Iowa Writers Workshop. He makes up for his previous lack of romance while at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and goes on to teach at two colleges, with a stay at Yaddo in between. John crosses paths with Raymond Carver, Robert Creeley and John Cheever, and receives guidance from mentors like Stanley Kunitz and strangers like Allen Ginsberg. A Moveable Famine is, ultimately, the portrait of an individual and an age. Above all, it is a book about identity.

10 Ernest Hemingway - Mary V. Dearborn
Auteur : Mary V. Dearborn
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
The first full biography of Ernest Hemingway in more than fifteen years; the first to draw upon a wide array of never-before-used material; the first written by a woman, from the widely acclaimed biographer of Norman Mailer, Peggy Guggenheim, Henry Miller, and Louise Bryant.

A revelatory look into the life and work of Ernest Hemingway, considered in his time to be the greatest living American novelist and short-story writer, winner of the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. Mary Dearborn's new biography gives the richest and most nuanced portrait to date of this complex, enigmatically unique American artist, whose same uncontrollable demons that inspired and drove him throughout his life undid him at the end, and whose seven novels and six-short story collections informed--and are still informing--fiction writing generations after

This year's translation issue is a tangent to the themes of immigration and travel, and also to many others: transportation. Planes, trains, and automobiles, boats, bicycles, horses, wagons, droshkes, a sack and walking stick; we considered anything that gets you from 'punkt alef' to point B.

12 Hemingway on Hunting - Ernest Hemingway
Auteur : Ernest Hemingway
Genre : Classics
Ernest Hemingway’s lifelong zeal for hunting is reflected in his masterful works of fiction, from his famous account of an African safari in “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” to passages about duck hunting in Across the River and into the Trees. For Hemingway, hunting was more than just a passion; it was a means through which to explore our humanity and man’s relationship to nature. Courage, awe, respect, precision, patience—these were the virtues that Hemingway honored in the hunter, and his ability to translate these qualities into prose has produced some of the strongest accounts of hunting of all time.

Hemingway on Hunting offers the full range of Hemingway’s writing about the hunting life. With selections from his best-loved novels and stories, along with journalistic pieces from such magazines as Esquire and Vogue, this s

14 Ernest Hemingway: Artifacts From a Life - Michael Katakis
Auteur : Michael Katakis
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Beautifully designed, intimate and illuminating, this is the story of American icon Ernest Hemingway's life through the documents, photographs, and miscellany he kept, compiled by the steward of the Hemingway estate and featuring contributions by his son and grandson.

For many people, Ernest Hemingway remains more a compilation of myths than a person: soldier, sportsman, lover, expat, and of course, writer. But the actual life underneath these various legends remains elusive; what did he look like as a laughing child or young soldier? What did he say in his most personal letters? How did the train tickets he held on his way from France to Spain or across the American Midwest transform him, and what kind of notes, for future stories or otherwise, did he take on these journeys?

Ernest Hemingway: Artifacts from a Life answers these questions, and many ot

17 A Moveable Feast - Lonely Planet
Auteur : Lonely Planet

From bat on the island of Fais to chicken on a Russian train to barbecue in the American heartland, from mutton in Mongolia to couscous in Morocco to tacos in Tijuana - on the road, food nourishes us not only physically, but intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually too.

Celebrate the riches and revelations of food with this 38-course feast of true tales set around the world.

18 A Moveable Verdict - David Cudlip
Auteur : David Cudlip
Genre : Mysteries & Thrillers
A Hollywood courtroom drama evokes the scandal-ridden exposures of Dominic Dunne in his heyday. Here, we have a young, highly acclaimed film actress on trial for allegedly murdering Marc Sterne, the son of a Hollywood mogul.
The evidence against Romaine Brook is largely circumstantial, yet is, at times, persuasive; …thus, it'’s up to the jury to decide if she'’ll walk the long hard walk or go free.
The presiding judge, Cliff Rhodes, has considerably more at stake in the outcome than ever he imagined; and then there's
the glamorous Audrey Sterne, the victim’s step-mother, and Rhodes’'s paramour of an earlier time. Concealing a prime fact of her past, Audrey Sterne is drawn into the courtroom fray in so many ways that her entire way of life is threatened, including her marriage to Julio Sterne, the mogul and aggrieved father of the alleged murder victim.

23 The Locust Room - John Burnside
Auteur : John Burnside
Genre : Fiction & Literature
Twenty five years ago, during the spring and summer of 1975, a rapist stalked the streets of Cambridge, attacking young, single women in their bed-sits and flats and subjecting them to horrifying and increasingly violent assaults. For several months the city endured a climate of fear and suspicion, where the old assumptions about sexual relations and civic decency fell into question, and no male could be taken at face value. These events for the background to The Locust Room, John Burnside's extraordinary new novel, in which a young photographer is forced by circumstances to examine his relations with women, with other men and with his family at home. Over one dramatic summer, he becomes involved in a series of sexual intrigues and acts of subtle violence as he journeys towards tentative self-definition and what he comes to see as honourable isolation. What emerges from this atmosphere

24 Paris, ein Fest fürs Leben - Ernest Hemingway
Auteur : Ernest Hemingway
Genre : Classics
Als Hemingway 1956 nach Paris zurückkehrte, ließ er sich aus dem Keller des Hotels Ritz seine alten Koffer bringen. Sie enthielten Tagebücher und Aufzeichnungen aus den Zwanzigern, seiner Zeit als Auslandskorrespondent.

Aus diesen frühen Notizen formte Hemingway den Roman seiner Pariser Jahre. Für ihn war es eine glückliche, prägende Zeit, als er an der Seine angelte, bescheidene Gewinne beim Pferderennen in Champagner umsetzte, mit Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Ezra Pound und F. Scott Fitzgerald zusammentraf.

Hemingways letztes Buch führt zu seinen Anfängen zurück: Es ist eine Feier des Lebens und des Schreibens, ein Erinnerungsbuch voll jugendlicher Kraft und melancholischem Humor, das nun, neu übersetzt, erstmals in der vom Autor hinterlassenen Fassung vorliegt.

"Das ist bester Hemingway; niemand hat das Paris der zwanziger Jahre eindruck

25 Framley Parsonage - Anthony Trollope
Auteur : Anthony Trollope
Genre : Classics
With an essay by David Skilton and Peter Miles.

'He was sickened also with all these lies. His very soul was dismayed by the dirt through which he was forced to wade. He had become unconsciously connected with the lowest dregs of mankind, and would have to see his name mingled with theirs in the daily newspapers'

Mark Robarts is a clergyman with ambitions beyond his small country parish of Framley. In a naive attempt to mix in influential circles, he agrees to guarantee a bill for a large sum of money for the disreputable local Member of Parliament, while being helped in his career in the Church by the same hand. But the unscrupulous politician reneges on his financial obligations, and Mark must face the consequences this debt may bring to his family.

28 In the Company of Writers - Charles Scribner
Auteur : Charles Scribner
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
It was “the golden age” of American literature. Max Perkins edited Hemingway and Fitzgerald, royalties were still calculated by hand, and business was usually based on personal ties between publisher and author.

It was into this world that Charles Scribner, Jr. was born, his career predetermined at the time of his christening. He grew up in publishing and cut his editorial teeth on giants like Edmund Wilson, C.P. Snow, P.D. James and Charles Lindbergh. But towering above them all was Ernest Hemingway, whose friendship Scribner recalls with affection.

“An elegant memoir of a publishing prince’s lifelong devotion to great books.” —A.Scott Berg

29 Aleister Crowley - Roger Hutchinson
Auteur : Roger Hutchinson
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) - mystic, writer, poet, astrologer, sexual revolutionary, painter, mountain climber and social critic - has a terrifying reputation. The contemporary press labelled him the 'wickedest man in the world', while he called himself the 'great beast'. Crowley dabbled in the occult, supported Germany in the First World War, was addicted to opiates, and many who associated with him died tragically in mysterious circumstances.

Working from the starting point that behind the demonic reputation there stood a human being, and that beyond the self-proclaimed black magician there was a man hungry for publicity and fame, Roger Hutchinson lifts the smokescreen of mythology to reveal a truly astonishing figure.

Why did this curious product of the Plymouth Brethren found the first 'hippy commune' in Sicily? What led this Cambridge graduate to be celebrate

30 Fanny Burney - Kate Chisholm
Auteur : Kate Chisholm
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Fanny Burney (1752-1840) is best known as the author of EVELINA, one of the most engaging novels of the eighteenth century. But for much of her long life, she was also an incomparable diarist, witnessing both the madness of George III and the young Queen Victoria's coronation. To read the journals she kept from the age of sixteen is to step back into Georgian England, meeting Dr Johnson, Garrick and Reynolds, being chased round the gardens of Kew Palace by the King. . . She was lady-in-writing to Queen Charlotte; she married an aristocratic emigre from the French Revolution and had her first and only child when she was forty-two; she was in Paris as Napoleon's armies marshalled against England, and in Brussels she heard the muffled guns, and watched the wounded being carried back from Waterloo. Kate Chisholm's delightful biography, incorporating the latest research and illust

31 流动的盛宴 - 欧内斯特·海明威
Auteur : 欧内斯特·海明威
Genre : Classics

32 Browning Upon Arabia - Hédi A. Jaouad
Auteur : Hédi A. Jaouad
Genre : Literary Criticism
Browning Upon Arabia charts Robert Browning’s early and enduring engagement with the East, particularly the Arab East. This book highlights the complexities of Browning’s poetry, revealing Browning’s resistance to triumphalist and imperialist forms of Orientalism generated by many nineteenth-century British and European literary and scholarly portrayals of the East. Hédi A. Jaouad argues that Browning extensively researched the literature, history, philosophy, and culture of the East to produce poetry that is sensitive to its Eastern resources and devoted to confirming the interrelation of Northern and Eastern knowledge in pursuit of a new form of transcendental humanism.

33 The Secret Chords - Jesper Kaae
Auteur : Jesper Kaae
Genre : Music
Grab a standard open E chord and move it five frets up the neck and you will get a beautiful sounding Aadd9 chord. Open moveable chords are seldom described despite the vast amount of guitar literature available. Although often used by various artists these chords and chord systems are well kept secrets to many aspiring guitarists. This book will help expand your chord vocabulary with a set of new and refreshing chords that will inspire you and spark your creativity. Open moveable chords combine the movability of the barre chords and the easy fingering of the standard open chords, and they create some interesting new sounds at the same time. These types of chords will often add complex harmonic extensions to standard major/minor chords so this book focuses on scale degrees rather than chord names to simplify the theoretically complex nature of open moveable chords. The book also includes

Award-winning journalist Dave Hoekstra hit the road in his own custom camper van, named Bluebird, to explore the history, culture, subcultures, and future of camper life. Traveling and talking his way through US campsites, RV parks, landmarks, and communities, Hoekstra draws out revealing stories from all walks of life—from Americans who are downsizing material goods while upsizing spiritual pursuits to RV enthusiasts such as Grammy-winning singer-songwriter John Prine and Chicago C

As Lydia assists an increasingly wealthy and hedonistic clientele with the realisation of its wildest fantasies, she begins to enjoy the exhibitionism and ritual role-play involved as much as the physical pleasures she has always relished.
