Paprika zum Schneiden von ´If It Were Left Up To Me´ für ihre 1985er Clinton produzierte LP Freaky Styley. Jazz-Ikone Miles Davis Berichten zufolge hat sich seine Band hingesetzt, um die Inspiration von verschiedenen playings of Fresh, ein Werk, das in Rolling Stone´s Top 500 Rock auf Platz 186 rangiert. Alben aller Zeiten. ´If You Want Me To Stay´, ´Frisky´ und ´If It Were Left Up To Me´ haben alle viel Airplay und Chart-Action, das letzte von Slys Arbeiten, um eine solche Behandlung zu erzielen. Nach dem beinahe gruseligen politisches Manifest von 1971´s There´s A Riot Goin´ On, Fresh seems besonders, naja, frisch! Und auch ein bisschen böse!

Based off of the viral McSweeney´s piece ´´New Erotica for Feminists´´He calls me into his office and closes the door... to promote me. He promotes me again and again. I am wild with ecstasy.Imagine a world where erotica was written by feminists: Their daydreams include equal pay, a gender-balanced Congress, and Tom Hardy arriving at their doorstep to deliver a fresh case of LaCroix every week. Both light-hearted and empowering, New Erotica for Feminists is a sly, satirical take on all the things that turn feminists on. From a retelling of Adam and Eve to tales of respectful Tinder dates, New Erotica for Feminists answers the question of ´´What do women really want?” with stories of power, equality, and an immortal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.Read by Soneela Nankani, with a Foreplay section read by author Carrie Wittmer 1.

In the tradition of Shel Silverstein, these poems bring a fresh new twist to the classic dilemmas of childhood as well as a perceptive eye to the foibles of modern family life. Full of clever wordplay - and toilet humor to spare - these 23 rhyming poems make for an ideal listening experience. Taking on the subjects of a bullying baseball coach and annoying little brothers with equally sly humor, renowned lyricist Rhett Miller´s clever verses will have the whole family cackling. 1.

We build worlds for ourselves wherever we go, writes Ann Beattie. The State We´re In, her magnificent new collection of linked stories, is about how we live in the places we have chosen - or been chosen by. It´s about the stories we tell our families, our friends, and ourselves, the truths we may or may not see, how our affinities unite or repel us, and where we look for love. Many of these stories are set in Maine, but The State We´re In is about more than geographical location and certainly is not a picture postcard of the coastal state. Some characters have arrived by accident; others are trying to get out. The collection opens, closes, and is interlaced with stories that focus on Jocelyn, a wryly disaffected teenager living with her aunt and uncle while attending summer school. As in life, the narratives of other characters interrupt Jocelyn´s, sometimes challenging, sometimes embellishing her view. Riveting, witty, sly, idiosyncratic, and bold, these stories describe a state of mind, a manner of being - now. A Beattie story, says Margaret Atwood, is, ´´like a fresh bulletin from the front: we snatch it up, eager to know what´s happening out there on the edge of that shifting and dubious no-man´s-land known as interpersonal relations.´´ The State We´re In is a fearless exploration of contemporary life by a brilliant writer whose fiction startles as it illuminates. 1.

A sly debut story collection that conjures the experience of adolescence through the eyes of Chinese American girls growing up in New York City - for listeners of Zadie Smith, Helen Oyeyemi, and Junot Díaz. A fresh new voice emerges with the arrival of Sour Heart, establishing Jenny Zhang as a frank and subversive interpreter of the immigrant experience in America. Her stories cut across generations and continents, moving from the fraught halls of a public school in Flushing, Queens, to the tumultuous streets of Shanghai, China, during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s. In the absence of grown-ups, latchkey kids experiment on each other until one day the experiments turn violent; an overbearing mother abandons her artistic aspirations to come to America but relives her glory days through karaoke; and a shy loner struggles to master English so she can speak to God. Narrated by the daughters of Chinese immigrants who fled imperiled lives as artists back home only to struggle to stay afloat - Dumpster diving for food and scamming Atlantic City casino buses to make a buck - these seven stories showcase Zhang´s compassion, moral courage, and a perverse sense of humor reminiscent of Portnoy´s Complaint. A darkly funny and intimate rendering of girlhood, Sour Heart examines what it means to belong to a family and to find your home, leave it, reject it, and return again. 1. Language: English.
