'Somehow Casey Gerald has pulled off the most urgently political, most deeply personal, and most engagingly spiritual statement of our time by just looking outside his window and inside himself. Extraordinary' Marlon JamesCasey Gerald's book is urgent, mesmeric, soaring, desperately serious, wounded and, at times, slyly, brilliantly comic. The world he creates is vivid, the invocation of the personal and the political sharp and knowing. The style is flawless, the pace perfectly judged. Electrifying' Colm TóibínCasey Gerald's story begins at the end of the world: on New Year's Eve 1999, Casey gathers with the congregation of his grandfather's black evangelical church to witness the rapture. The journey that follows is a beautiful and moving story of a young man learning to question the dreams of success and prosperity that are the foundation of modern America.Growing up gay in an ordinary black neighbourhood in Dallas, his parents struggling with mental health problems and addiction, Casey finds himself on a remarkable path to a prestigious Ivy League college, to the inner sanctums of power on Wall Street and in Washington DC. But even as he attains everything the American Dream promised him, Casey comes to see that salvation stories like his own are part of the plan to keep others from rising.Intense, incantatory, shot through with sly humour and quiet fury, There Will Be No Miracles Here is an extraordinary memoir that forces us to judge our society not on those who rise highest, but on those left behind along the way.

NAMED A BEST BOOK OF 2018 BY NPR AND THE NEW YORK TIMESA PBS NEWSHOUR-NEW YORK TIMES BOOK CLUB PICK"Somehow Casey Gerald has pulled off the most urgently political, most deeply personal, and most engagingly spiritual statement of our time by just looking outside his window and inside himself. Extraordinary." - Marlon James"Staccato prose and peripatetic storytelling combine the cadences of the Bible with an urgency reminiscent of James Baldwin in this powerfully emotional memoir." - BookPageThe testament of a boy and a generation who came of age as the world came apart--a generation searching for a new way to live.Casey Gerald comes to our fractured times as a uniquely visionary witness whose life has spanned seemingly unbridgeable divides. His story begins at the end of the world: Dallas, New Year's Eve 1999, when he gathers with the congregation of his grandfather's black evangelical church to see which of them will be carried off. His beautiful, fragile mother disappears frequently and mysteriously, for a brief idyll, he and his sister live like Boxcar Children on her disability checks. When Casey--following in the footsteps of his father, a gridiron legend who literally broke his back for the team--is recruited to play football at Yale, he enters a world he's never dreamed of, the anteroom to secret societies and success on Wall Street, in Washington, and beyond. But even as he attains the inner sanctums of power, Casey sees how the world crushes those who live at its margins. He sees how the elite perpetuate the salvation stories that keep others from rising. And he sees, most painfully, how his own ascension is part of the scheme.There Will Be No Miracles Here has the arc of a classic rags-to-riches tale, but it stands the American Dream narrative on its head. If to live as we are is destroying us, it asks, what would it mean to truly live? Intense, incantatory, shot through with sly humor and quiet fury, There Will Be No Miracles Hereinspires us to question--even shatter--and reimagine our most cherished myths.

The Green Inferno Aka Cannibal Holocaust 2
19,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

For years fans waited for the release of a sequel to Ruggero Deodato's trendsetting CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST (1980) yet it would take almost a decade for THE GREEN INFERNO, also known as CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2, to arrive... and it was not, perhaps, what followers of the cycle in Italian nasty native movies were expecting! Whilst Deodato's original benchmark critiqued the mondo film pseudo-documentary phenomenon, partly instigated by cinematographer and director Antonio Climati (MONDO CANE/ SAVAGE MAN, SAVAGE BEAST), here the focus turns to satirising the hypocrisy and complexity of CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST itself! Directed by Climati, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2 sees some enterprising adventurers traipsing into the Amazon jungle in search of a missing professor and, in the interim, the youngsters encounter some indications that slavery and European colonialism is still robbing the Colombian rain forest blind! A mix of macabre images, scenic locations, castrations and sly in-jokes, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST 2 introduces some belated bad taste humour into familiar jungle territory and requires immediate reappraisal from tribal terror completists - which is a meal best served in glorious HD by the video nasty enthusiasts at 88 Films!! Extras: Scenes From Banned Alice: The Rise and Fall of Italian Cannibal Movies Audio Commentary by Genre Expert and Director of Me Me Lai Bites Back Dr Calum Waddell

Sally And Jake - The Complete Series
7,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

This enchanting stop-motion animation series for younger viewers featured the everyday adventures of the puppet children from Rainbow, one of the longest-running and best-loved children’s programmes ever made. Sally, her brother Jake and the other characters of Dimbledale were among the earliest creations of BAFTA and Emmy winners Brian Cosgrove and Mark Hall, the phenomenally successful production team behind classics such as 1975’s Noddy, Dangermouse, the magical Wind in the Willows, and Cinderella. Featuring narration by Mike Savage and songs sung by former Herman’s Hermit Keith Hopwood, Sally and Jake was originally screened between 1973 and 1974, and both series plus the 1973 Christmas special are available here for the first time in any format. Sally and Jake live in the little village of Dimbledale, where there’s always plenty for them to see and do. Their parents run the local greengrocer’s shop, and Dad drives to the market every day to collect fruit and vegetables. Gran lives next door, and is always on hand to provide delicious pies and cakes. Their other friends include Harry the odd-job man, who lives in a converted barn and is always making and mending something, and Farmer Merry, who works the fields around the village… not forgetting Sly the cat, who finds Dimbledale the ideal place to do what he likes doing best - curling up and going to sleep!

Tiffany Sly Lives Here Now , Hörbuch, Digital, ...

“I’ve got seven days to come clean to my new dad. Seven days to tell the truth....” For 16-year-old Tiffany Sly, life hasn’t been safe or normal for a while. Losing her mom to cancer has her a little bit traumatized and now she has to leave her hometown of Chicago to live with the biological dad she’s never known. Anthony Stone is a rich man with four other daughters - and rules for every second of the day. Tiffany tries to make the best of things, but she doesn’t fit into her new luxurious, but super-strict, home - or get along with her standoffish sister London. The only thing that makes her new life even remotely bearable is the strange boy across the street. Marcus McKinney has had his own experiences with death, and the unexpected friendship that blossoms between them is the only thing that makes her feel grounded. But Tiffany has a secret. Another man claims he’s Tiffany’s real dad - and she only has seven days before he shows up to demand a paternity test and the truth comes out. With her life about to fall apart all over again, Tiffany finds herself discovering unexpected truths about her father, her mother, and herself, and realizing that maybe family is in the bonds you make - and that life means sometimes taking risks. 1.

She looked at the rotting, sun-blasted shack, the one room where they all lived, slept, made love, died. Looked at the dusty lawn where no grass grew. At the steaming swamp, at her tobacco-spitting mother. Saw the sly, lustful eyes of her father’s friends. Then she looked at her own lush beauty. Get me out of here, she prayed. Oh, please get me out of here! I’ll pay any price. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Graham Hamilton. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/005074/bk_adbl_005074_sample.mp3.
