The detective the Chicago Tribune declared "the most interesting since Walter Mosley's Easy Rawlins" himself goes missing. The Dark Streets takes private investigator Jack Liffey to LA's glitzy, exotic Koreatown, where a young film student, Soon-Lin Kim, has apparently gone missing. Early in his search for her, Jack learns that Soon-Lin has been tangling with a giant Korean conglomerate. Again, as in all the Liffey mysteries, the superbly-crafted action that makes John Shannon one of the most exciting detective-fiction writers on the California scene envelops Jack, and ultimately he finds himself under torturously intense interrogation at the secret compound of a private security agency - and for a climax as explosive as the violent lightning storm in the desert sky. 1.

Hamilton: The Revolution , Hörbuch, Digital, 1,...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist-star Lin-Manuel Miranda comes a backstage pass to his groundbreaking hit musical, Hamilton. Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical, Hamilton, is as revolutionary as its subject: the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap and claims the origins of the United States for a diverse new generation. Hamilton: The Revolution gives listeners an unprecedented view of both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages - 'since before this was even a show', according to Miranda - traces its development from an improbable performance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition Miranda has written more than 200 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, all of which are included here. Their account features exclusive looks into notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sondheim, leading political commentators, and more than 50 people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by President Obama himself. The audiobook does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became an international phenomenon: it demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don't throw away their shots. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mariska Hargitay. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/twuk/001209/bk_twuk_001209_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

An exuberant memoir from an original new voice. Oliver is a writer who's just moved to Melbourne.

Oliver is lonely. Oliver is sleepwalking through life. Then he meets Lisa, and things begin to change. In the tradition of Sam Pink and Tao Lin comes a startling original, ambitious work of creative nonfiction that explores love, sex, and meaning in the age of Gen Y.
