READING: In the freezing cold winter of 1739/40, Europe was in the grip of the worst weather for 30 years. The Seine, Rhine, Danube and Thames froze solid for months. Tsaritsa Anna Ivanovna gave an order to build a palace made completely of ice on the frozen river. She ordered the architect Pyotr Eropkin to design the building. The Ice Palace had been designed for a cruel jest. She made the prince marry a particularly ugly Kalmyk (area of Mongolia) serving woman, and the ice palace was for their honeymoon! It amounted to no more than a sick and perverse death sentence.The unhappy couple were paraded in a cage on the back of an elephant at the head of a procession of freaks, dwarves, cripples and all manner of grotesque human beings. In the palace the newlyweds were enclosed into an icy nuptial chamber under heavy guard and bedded down publicly in the icy room. The couple barely survived the night; but survive they did with the help of the Princes aide and friends of the Kalmyk bride.

READING: Naast beroemde romans als The Great Gatsby liet de Amerikaanse schrijver F. Scott Fitzgerald maar liefst 179 verhalen na. Schrijver Ernest van der Kwast dook in dit omvangrijke oeuvre en selecteerde Fitzgeralds meest romantische verhalen, waaronder `De rijke jongen, `Terug naar Babylon en `Winterdromen, het oerverhaal van The Great Gatsby. De vertellingen knisperen alsof ze gisteren geschreven zijn. Fitzgeralds personages beleven de Amerikaanse droom, ervaren de desastreuze gevolgen van succes en kiezen voor onbereikbare liefdes. Voor wie (nader) wil kennismaken met F. Scott Fitzgeralds werk biedt deze bundel een staalkaart van zijn meesterschap. De Amerikaanse schrijver Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (1896-1940) behoort tot de grote Amerikaanse schrijvers van de twintigste eeuw. Voor zijn romans en verhalen putte hij rijkelijk uit zijn eigen, roerige leven.

The Author Peter Davidson

ISBN 9781861895639
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: North is the point we look for on a map to orient ourselves. It is also the direction taken throughout history by the adventurous, the curious, the solitary, and the foolhardy. Based in the North himself, Peter Davidson, in The Idea of North, explores the very concept of "north" through its many manifestations in painting, legend, and literature. Tracing a northbound route from rural England—whose mild climate keeps it from being truly northern—to the wind-shorn highlands of Scotland, then through Scandinavia and into the desolate, icebound Arctic Circle, Davidson takes the reader on a journey from the heart of society to its most far-flung outposts. But we never fully leave civilization behind; rather, it is our companion on his alluring ramble through the north in art and story. Davidson presents a north that is haunted by Moomintrolls and the ghosts of long-lost Arctic explorers but at the same time, somehow, home to the fragile beauty of a Baltic midsummer evening. He sets the Icelandic Sagas, Nabokov's snowy fictional kingdom of Zembla, and Hans Christian Andersen's cryptic, forbidding Snow Queen alongside the works of such artists as Eric Ravilious, Ian Hamilton Finlay, and Andy Goldsworthy, demonstrating how each illuminates a different facet of humanity's relationship to the earth's most dangerous and austere terrain. Through the lens of Davidson's easy erudition and astonishing range of reference, we come to see that the north is more a goal than a place, receding always before us, just over the horizon, past the last town, off the edge of the map. True north may be unreachable, but The Idea of North brings intrepid readers closer than ever before.

READING: De nummer 1-bestseller uit Amerika Een krachtig memoir dat recht uit het hart komt: het verhaal van een jonge vrouw die op het dieptepunt van haar leven een 1700 kilometer lange solo-hike maakt. De tocht is slopend, zowel emotioneel als fysiek, maar maakt haar uiteindelijk sterker dan ooit. `Spectaculair en aangrijpend een adembenemend verhaal. The New York Times `Geweldig, oprecht en meeslepend. Marie Claire `Ik hou van dit boek. Ik wil het van de daken schreeuwen en over het web roepen. Ik hou zoveel van dit boek dat ik niets liever wil dan er zo veel mogelijk over praten. Oprah Winfrey over haar keuze voor Wild in Oprahs Book Club 2.0 Op haar zesentwintigste bevindt Cheryl Strayed zich in een diep dal: haar moeder is overleden en ze ligt in scheiding. Ze neemt haar meest impulsieve beslissing ooit en begint aan een voettocht van 1700 kilometer langs de Pacific Crest Trail in het westen van Amerika. Helemaal alleen, zonder ervaring en met een veel te zware rugzak. Drie maanden lang doorstaat ze intense hitte en meters sneeuw, wordt ze geconfronteerd met beren en ratelslangen, en ervaart ze de schoonheid, maar ook de verschrikkelijke eenzaamheid van de tocht. Met spanning, warmte en humor en in een meeslepende en sprankelende stijl vertelt Cheryl Strayed haar verhaal. Wild is het levendige verslag van de intense angst maar ook het enorme plezier die ze beleefde tijdens de reis die haar leven voorgoed zou veranderen.

READING: A world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon shares the lessons of courage, compassion, and resilience that he's learned from his exceptional young patients If I Get to Five is a one-of-a-kind book by a one-of-a-kind human being. The medical world knows him as Fred Epstein, M.D., the neurosurgeon who pioneered life-saving procedures for previously inoperable tumors in children. His patients and their families know him simply as Dr. Fred, the "miracle man" who has extended them both a healing hand and an open heart. "I simply can't accept the idea of kids dying," is how Epstein explains his commitment to saving patients. As a child, he had to overcome severe learning disabilities to realize his dream of becoming a doctor. Later, as the world's leading pediatric neurosurgeon, he did whatever it took to rescue children that other doctors had given up on. Epstein credits his young patients as his most important teachers. "We tend to think of children as fragile, little people," he writes. "To me, they're giants." If I Get to Five relates the unforgettable experiences he's shared with children-lessons in courage, compassion, love, and hope-that we can all draw on to overcome adversity at any stage of life. In If I Get to Five, Epstein meditates on these lessons at a time when they parallel his own experiences, as he recovers from a near-fatal head injury. If I Get to Five is a riveting profile of courage and compassion. No one who reads this remarkable book will ever look at children-or adversity-in the same way.
