1,000 Places to See Before You Die

Revised Second Edition

Publisher: Workman Publishing

Category: Travel

Page: 1216

The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it “tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable— everywhere on earth.” And now the best is better. There are 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition. There is an emphasis on experiences: an entry covers not just Positano or Ravello, but the full 30-mile stretch along the Amalfi Coast. Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz, but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm. The world is calling. Time to answer.

Buni

Happiness Is a State of Mind

Author: Ryan Pagelow

Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing

Always positive, Buni doesn’t understand that the cute world he lives in is usually out to get him. The girl he loves loves someone else. And his best intentions never seem to work. Yet he wakes up each day hopeful. Together with his cynical dad and determined dog, he inhabits a surreal world populated by teddy bears, cupcakes, unicorns, and zombies. With few words, these comics rely on images to tell the story, which is often twisted, sad and funny all at the same time. But more than anything, they show that nothing will keep Buni down. Because true happiness is a state of mind.

Photographer Simon Marsden's fascination with the supernatural began in childhood as he played hide and seek in the ancient attic of his family's house, ever vigilant for the appearance of the 'family ghost'. It wasn't until later that he discovered the craft of photography and developed an enduring fascination with the enigma of 'reality' that timing and lighting conjure up. His startlingly atmospheric black and white images reveal a hidden world and the ghostly, beguiling and often chilling images transport the reader to a different realm, a haunted realm, where what we believe to be reality may not be quite all it seems... The Haunted Realm is a collection of outstanding photographs of eerie and fascinating places throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Houses and mansions, castles and abbeys - Simon has left no stone unturned in his quest to capture the ghostly nature of these strange places on film. Accompanying the photographs is his intriguing text which describes the apparitions or spirit manifestations that have been reported at each particular site and the strange and often macabre real-life events that are believed to have caused the hauntings.

A Body of Work

Dancing to the Edge and Back

Author: David Hallberg

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

ISBN: 1476771170

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 432

View: 8165

David Hallberg, the first American to join the famed Bolshoi Ballet as a principal dancer and the dazzling artist The New Yorker described as “the most exciting male dancer in the western world,” presents an intimate journey through his artistic life up to the moment he returns to the stage after a devastating injury almost cost him his career. Beginning with his real-life Billy Elliot childhood—an all-American story marred by intense bullying—and culminating in his hard-won come-back, Hallberg’s brave memoir dives deep into life as an artist as he wrestles with ego, pushes the limits of his body, and searches for ecstatic perfection and fulfillment as one of the world’s most acclaimed ballet dancers. While rich in detail ballet fans will adore, this is a book that anyone interested in a life of creativity will love. Hallberg reflects on themes like inspiration, self-doubt, and perfectionism as he takes readers into daily class, rigorous rehearsals, and triumphant performances, searching for new interpretations of ballet’s greatest roles. He reveals the loneliness he felt as a teenager leaving America to join the Paris Opera Ballet, the ambition he had to tame as a new member of American Ballet Theatre, and the reasons behind his headline-grabbing decision to be the first American to join the top rank of Bolshoi Ballet, tendered by the artistic director who would later be the victim of a vicious acid attack. Then, as Hallberg performed throughout the world at the peak of his abilities, he suffered a crippling ankle injury and unsuccessful surgery leading to an agonizing retreat from ballet and an honest reexamination of his entire life. Combining his powers of observation and memory with emotional honesty and artistic insight, Hallberg has written a great ballet memoir and an intimate portrait of an artist in all his vulnerability, passion, and wisdom.
