The Rise and Times of Charlie Parker
Crouch, Stanley Harper Perennial 2014, počet strán 365

Obal: soft, Stav: Nová, The Rise and Times of Charlie Parker is the first installment in the long - awaited portrait of one of the most talented and influential musicians of the twentieth century, fr_om Stanley Crouch, one of the foremost authorities on jazz and culture in America. Throughout his life, Charlie Parker personified the tortured American artist: a revolutionary performer who used his alto saxophone to create a new music known as bebop even as he wrestled with a drug addiction that would lead to his death at the age of thirty - four. Drawing on interviews with peers, collaborators, and family members, Kansas City Lightning recreates Parker’s Depression - era childhood; his early days navigating the Kansas City nightlife, inspired by lions like Lester Young and Count Basie; and on to New York, whe_re he began to transcend the music he had mastered. Crouch reveals an ambitious young man torn between music and drugs, between his domineering mother and his impressionable young wife, whose teenage romance with Charlie lies at the bittersweet heart of this story. With the wisdom of a jazz scholar, the cultural insights of an acclaimed social critic, and the narrative skill of a literary novelist, Stanley Crouch illuminates this American master as never before.

Chicago
Al Aswany, Alaa Harper Perennial 2008, počet strán 342

Obal: soft, Stav: 5 / 5, From Alaa Al Aswany, the author of the highly - acclaimed The Yacoubian Building, comes a story of love, sex, friendship, hatred, and ambition set in the midwestern city with a cast of American and Arab characters achingly human in their desires and needs. Chicago offers an illuminating portrait of America—a complex, often contradictory land in which triumph and failure, opportunity and oppression, licentiousness and tender love, small dramas and big dreams, coexist. Aswany came to Chicago fr_om Egypt in the late 1980s to attend the University of Illinois. A practicing dentist in Cairo, he became a best - selling novelist with The Yacoubian Building (2002), about the occupants of a Cairo apartment building. In his newest galvanizing novel, he creates another galaxy of lives, this time transforming the medical school at the University of Illinois into a seething microcosm of contentious politics, religious beliefs, and ambitions. Marshaling a magnetic cast of professors, Egyptian émigrés with American wives and children, and Egyptian students on visas and in culture shock, Aswany, using alternating points of view, uncoils a dramatic yet darkly hilarious plot involving imperiled marriages and covert political activity. Neatly smashing any notion of monolithic ethnicity and contrasting extreme ideology with determined morality, Aswany also expresses deep compassion for women, especially in the stories of two lonely, pious students and that of a desperately job - seeking black woman married to a white professor. Brilliant and forthright in his insights into sexuality, racism, and tyranny; empathic in his psychological intensity; and righteous in his protest of covert post - 9 / 11 brutality and injustice, Aswany has written a daring novel of our delusions and dreams, vulnerabilities and strengths.
