Simon´s memoir reveals her remarkable life, beginning with her storied childhood as the third daughter of Richard L. Simon, the cofounder of publishing giant Simon & Schuster; her musical debut as half of The Simon Sisters, performing folk songs with her sister, Lucy, in Greenwich Village; to a meteoric solo career that would result in 13 top 40 hits, including the number-one song ´´You´re So Vain´´. She was the first artist in history to win a Grammy Award, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award, for her song ´´Let the River Run´´ from the movie Working Girl. The memoir recalls a childhood enriched by music and culture but also one shrouded in secrets that would eventually tear her family apart. Simon brilliantly captures moments of creative inspiration, the sparks of songs, and the stories behind writing ´´Anticipation´´ and ´´We Have No Secrets´´, among many others. Romantic entanglements with some of the most famous men of the day fueled her confessional lyrics as well as the unraveling of her storybook marriage to James Taylor. Includes original music composed especially for the program by Carly Simon and Teese Gohl plus a previously unreleased bonus song from Carly Simon. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carly Simon.

The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things offers a startlingly original look at the revered writer through a variety of key moments, scenes, and objects in her life and work. Going beyond previous traditional biographies which have traced Austen´s daily life from Steventon to Bath to Chawton to Winchester, Paula Byrne´s portrait - organized thematically and drawn from the most up-to-date scholarship and unexplored sources - explores the lives of Austen´s extended family, friends, and acquaintances. Through their absorbing stories, we view Austen on a much wider stage and discover unexpected aspects of her life and character. Byrne transports us to different worlds - the East Indies and revolutionary Paris - and different events - from a high-society scandal to a petty case of shoplifting, She follows Austen on her extensive travels, setting her in contexts both global and English, urban and rural, political and historical, social and domestic - wider perspectives of vital and still underestimated importance to her creative life. Literary scholarship has revealed that letters and tokens in Austen’s novel’s often signal key turning points in the unfolding narrative. This groundbreaking biography explores Jane´s own story following the same principle. As Byrne reveals, small things in the writer´s world - a scrap of paper, a simple gold chain, an ivory miniature, a bathing machine - hold significance in her emotional and artistic development. The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things introduces us to a woman deeply immersed in the world around her, yet far ahead of her time in her independence and ambition; to an author who was an astute commentator on human nature and the foibles of her own age. Rich and compelling, it is a fresh, insightful, and often surprising portrait of an artist and a vivid evocation of the complex world that shaped her.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying referen... 1.

Gebundene Ausgabe - Parragon Plus- 78 Seiten - Englisch Early Years In 1899 Della Mae Hogan, having ear-lier scandalized her local Missouri com-munity by encouraging local lads to play `kiss-me-quick´ in a variety of neigh-bourhood farmyards, came to her senses and married a house painter, ten years her senior, called Otis Elmer Monroe. Just a few months later, Otis, who had high hopes of becoming a famous artist and moving to Paris, France, took his wife across the border to Mexico, where he was sure that they would save enough money to facilitate their trip to Europe. Instead, in 1902, Della gave birth to a girl, Gladys Pearl, and the Monroes, with their lofty dreams fading, moved to Los Angeles where they had heard that the trams, if not the streets, needed covering in gold. In 1905, Della gave birth to a boy called Marion. Work became scarcer and Otis began to drink. By 1908 Otis was semi-paralysed. He was in the final stages of syphilis of the brain, and the cure was not to be invented for another year — which was too late to save Otis. He died in 1909 at the age of forty-three. Otis´s deteriora-tion had been rapid and terrifying —Della was convinced that her husband had gone mad. In fact, the kind of ...
