Euphoria : a novel by Lily King( Book )

"English anthropologist Andrew Bankson has been alone in the field for several years, studying a tribe on the Sepik River in the Territory of New Guinea with little success. Increasingly frustrated and isolated by his research, Bankson is on the verge of suicide when he encounters the famous and controversial Nell Stone and her wry, mercurial Australian husband Fen. Bankson is enthralled by the magnetic couple whose eager attentions pull him back from the brink of despair. Nell and Fen have their own reasons for befriending Bankson. Emotionally and physically raw from studying the bloodthirsty Mumbanyo tribe, the couple is hungry for a new discovery. But when Bankson leads them to the artistic, female-dominated Tam, he ignites an intellectual and emotional firestorm between the three of them that burns out of anyone's control."--Jacket

Bernard Berenson : a life in the picture trade by Rachel Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few would have predicted that Bernard Berenson, from a poor Lithuanian Jewish immigrant family, would rise above poverty. Yet Berenson left his crowded home near Boston's railyards and transformed himself into the world's most renowned expert on Italian Renaissance paintings, the owner of a beautiful villa and an immense private library in the hills outside Florence. The explosion of the Gilded Age art market and Berenson's work for dealer Joseph Duveen supported a luxurious life, but it came with painful costs: Berenson hid his origins and, though his attributions remain foundational, felt that he had betrayed his gifts as a critic and interpreter of paintings. This finely drawn portrait of Berenson, the first biography devoted to him in a quarter century, draws on new archival materials that bring out the significance of his secret business dealings and the central importance of several women in his life and work: his sister Senda Berenson; his wife Mary Berenson; his patron Isabella Stewart Gardner; his lover Belle da Costa Greene; his dear friend Edith Wharton, and the companion of his last forty years, Nicky Mariano. Rachel Cohen explores Berenson's inner world and extraordinary visual capacity while also illuminating the historical forces--new capital, the developing art market, persistent anti-Semitism, and the two world wars--that profoundly affected his life"--
Along the enchanted way : a Romanian story by William Blacker( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Per William Blacker questa regione dell'attuale Romania sembra essere non la meta di un viaggio, quanto piuttosto uno stato della mente, o degli occhi. Blacker la visita quasi per caso poco dopo la caduta del Muro e, incantato da tutto ciò che vede, decide di stabilirsi nel suo distretto più remoto, il Maramures, adeguandosi a uno stile di vita immutato da secoli. Ma il demone dell'irrequietezza lo attrae presto più a sud, dove le montagne digradano nelle colline della Terra dei Sassoni. Qui Blacker trova un mondo completamente diverso, e assai più movimentato. I lindi e inappuntabili sassoni sono in gran parte emigrati in Germania, e nelle loro case si è insediato il popolo degli zingari, la cui capacità di inventare storie, per poi impersonarle, colpisce almeno quanto l'incapacità di districarsene. Da qui in poi - da quando cioè nella vita di Blacker entrano Natalia e Marishka, due sorelle diversissime, e ugualmente indimenticabili quella che era cominciata come una serena elegia su un'Europa scomparsa si trasforma in una rapsodia zigana: a volte languida, a volte scatenata

"The whole world held its breath when Christopher Reeve struggled for life on Memorial Day, 1995. On the third jump of a riding competition, Reeve was thrown headfirst from his horse in an accident that broke his neck and left him unable to move or breathe." "In the years since then, Reeve has not only survived, but has fought for himself, for his family, and for the hundreds of thousands of people with spinal cord injuries in the United States and around the world." "Chris describes his early success on Broadway opposite the legendary Katharine Hepburn, the adventure of filming Superman on the streets of New York, and how the movie made him a star. He continued to move regularly between film acting and theater work in New York, Los Angeles, and at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in the Berkshires. Reunited with his Bostonians director, James Ivory, in 1992, he traveled to England to work with Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins in The Remains of the Day."--Jacket
