A hilarious and revealing look at how American late-night TV has shaped our understanding of popular culture, politics, entertainment, and world events, by former top writer for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
When photographer’s assistant Gary Holland meets three Australian underpants models—all called Bruce—on what should be a routine shoot in LA, it turns out to be anything but.
He falls for the geekiest, yet sexiest, Bruce of them all, but soon learns Bruce has not only never been with another man but is an anxious virgin. Bruce lives in the whimsically named town of Come By Chance in northern New South Wales, population 178.
After a torrid fling starts in California, Bruce wants Gary to visit him in the land down under. Shocks, laughter, love, a shy kangaroo named Phillip, a goose called Zeus and a tractor that thinks it’s a horse, soon welcome Gary to a life he never thought he’d want to live.
Can two men who are such opposites make a life together? Does love like this really…come by chance?
Il Taccuino Rosso: un diario che non descrive le giornate disperse nell’urgenza dei gesti, ma le emozioni che sanno lasciare impronte profonde dentro l’anima e il cuore, non disprezzando i piaceri della carne. Un insieme di pensieri e fantasie che esplodono dentro fino a trasformarsi in parole, gocce d’inchiostro a sporcare pagine di vita in cui rileggersi, ritrovarsi e riconoscersi, nella paura di disperdersi nel vuoto, nella continua ricerca di se stessi, negata dagli obblighi dei giorni. Uno sfogo dell’anima quando butta via la maschera davanti allo specchio di se… 12 storie in una storia che si racconta da sé…

This innovative, interdisciplinary study explores the Victorians' attitudes toward sight. It draws on writers as diverse as George Eliot, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Rudyard Kipling as well as pre-Raphaelite and realist painters including Millais, Burne-Jones, William Powell Frith and Whistler, and a host of Victorian scientists, cultural commentators and art critics. Topics discussed include blindness, memory, hallucination, dust, and the importance of the horizon--a dazzling array of subjects linked together by the operations of the eye and brain. This richly illustrated book will appeal to anyone studying Victorian culture.
THE RIDDLE OF LATIN AMERICA explores the promise and paradox of Latin America in a novel way by giving equal weight to the colonial and national periods. This is essential because in Latin America colonialism started early and independence came late. The aim of this book is to provide unfamiliar readers with a more balanced, interpretive view of Latin America's long and complex history by identifying key patterns and trends and tracing them across time and space. Within chapters THE RIDDLE OF LATIN AMERICA takes a regional rather than country-by-country approach, treating, for example, the Greater Caribbean, Mexico and Central America, the Andes, the Southern Cone, and Brazil.
