Bowling Alone (eBook, ePUB)
14,81 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Once we bowled in leagues, usually after work -- but no longer. This seemingly small phenomenon symbolizes a significant social change that Robert Putnam has identified in this brilliant volume, Bowling Alone, which The Economist hailed as ´´a prodigious achievement.´´ Drawing on vast new data that reveal Americans´ changing behavior, Putnam shows how we have become increasingly disconnected from one another and how social structures -- whether they be PTA, church, or political parties -- have disintegrated. Until the publication of this groundbreaking work, no one had so deftly diagnosed the harm that these broken bonds have wreaked on our physical and civic health, nor had anyone exalted their fundamental power in creating a society that is happy, healthy, and safe. Like defining works from the past, such as The Lonely Crowd and The Affluent Society, and like the works of C. Wright Mills and Betty Friedan, Putnam´s Bowling Alone has identified a central crisis at the heart of our society and suggests what we can do.

CASSIE, LE CINQUIÈME TOME DE LA SÉRIE ALPHA « Même l´éternité me semble trop courte. » Cassie... Cassie travaille comme créatrice de mode et tout lui réussit dans la vie. Seule ombre au tableau : depuis que son ex l´a trompée; elle ne croit plus en l´amour. À la suite d´un rencard désastreux avec un passionné de bowling, elle rencontre dans un bar un dénommé Tony, qu´elle reconnaît bientôt comme le frère de sa meilleure amie. L´alchimie est immédiate et son cœur s´emballe… Mais Cassie se doit toutefois d´en parler à sa copine. Le problème; c´est que Tony semble vouloir garder leur relation secrète; et peu à peu le doute s´installe en elle. Ses réserves auraient-elles un quelconque rapport avec sa fortune inexpliquée et ses mystérieux contacts ? Tony... Lorsque Tony rencontre Cassie, il tombe aussitôt sous son charme. C´est la première fois qu´une fille le remarque pour autre chose que son argent. D´abord innocents, ses sentiments ne tardent pas à déraper; virant même à l´obsession. Alors, quand Cassie perd son emploi au magazine où elle travaille, il accourt à sa rescousse et la prend sous son aile, car c´est plus fort que lui : il aimerait pouvoir résoudre tous ses problèmes. Or Cassie résiste. Il a beau savoir qu´elle lui est dévouée; cela ne lui suffit pas. Rien n´empêchera Tony de passer l´éternité à ses côtés; ni les réticences de celle-ci, ni les reproches acides de sa sœur qui ne voit pas cette relation d´un très bon œil. Mais Cassie, de son côté; semble plus dubitative…

Self-Made Man (eBook, ePUB)
5,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A journalist´s provocative and spellbinding account of her eighteen months spent disguised as a man. Norah Vincent became an instant media sensation with the publication of Self-Made Man, her take on just how hard it is to be a man, even in a man´s world. Following in the tradition of John Howard Griffin (Black Like Me), Vincent spent a year and a half disguised as her male alter ego, Ned, exploring what men are like when women aren´t around. As Ned, she joined a bowling team, took a high-octane sales job, went on dates with women (and men), visited strip clubs, and even managed to infiltrate a monastery and a men´s therapy group. At once thought-provoking and pure fun to read, Self-Made Man is a sympathetic and thrilling tour de force of immersion journalism. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Dark Dagger & the Holy Fools, Paranormal Garage...
2,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Derrick ´´Dark´´ Dagger has serious issues. His garage band, Dark Dagger and the Holy Fools, has three weeks to rehearse before Wildwood High´s epic battle of bands, and his bass player, Felicity, has been pushed off an overpass. Fortunately, her father has already brought her back from the dead—next to bowling, necromancy is his favorite hobby. Then there´s Dark´s drummer, Lukas, who has defected to the Holy Fools´ hated rivals, Viral Culture, a techno-trance dance posse led by Vira Smooch, the snootiest girl in school and the great-niece of Wildwood´s Mayor, Dr. Simeon Smooch. The Smooches are descendants of the Witch-finders who long ago drove the Harvest Moon Witches out of Wildwood, and Dr. Smooch has his sights on the Holy Fools´ singer, Maggie, who may or may not be practicing magic. Help arrives in the form of a recently-resurrected zombie, Totally Dead Guy, whose voodoo groove becomes the Holy Fools´ secret weapon in their battle against the forces of repression, oppression, and sucky music. When Maggie and Felicity disappear, Dark embarks on a death-defying search that takes him through a vast and confusing underworld library staffed by elderly, ill-tempered ghosts. He and his zombie amigo finally arrive at the K-HEX 66.6 radio station, where a werewolf DJ awaits them. After that surprising confrontation—and run-ins with an evil robot and a ninja archer—Dark and his friends discover who´s been killing their classmates. The only remaining challenge is the Battle of Bands. Can the Holy Fools compete with Vira and her homies, or will the Smooches and their allies kill them all?
