Jazz (Happily After When, #1) (eBook, ePUB)
0,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jazz Abadi has it all. She is an heiress, lives in a luxury mansion, and has the biggest social media following in Maiden City. There's just one thing missing: the CEO title of her father's fitness company, Ultimate ME. As her father's health declines, naming his successor becomes paramount. But there's one problem. On paper, Ethan Roth--her father's dashing and intelligent mentee--is the better candidate. He is a manipulation machine, but he didn't count on one thing: Jazz is no sucker. When Ethan proposes Jazz marry him as part of his business plan, she laughs in his face. Jazz runs from the situation, needing time to build a counter-attack. When she finds herself in a drop-in centre for vulnerable people, she is simultaneously invisible and obvious. As she decides to leave, Adrian steals her attention. Adrian Cassidy is like no man she's ever met. He's distrustful of corporations and the wealthy, and treats just another person in the shelter. Jazz has never had a crush, she's always been adamant that work comes first, but will Adrian be the distraction her heart truly needs? If Jazz gives into her heart, what kind of person will she become? Will losing focus give Ethan clues to find her? And what will happen if Adrian finds out who she really is? The Happily After When series is inspired by fairytales. Each book is based on a different fairytale, and Jazz is a modern transformation of Aladdin. The Happily After When series looks at the dangerous lessons fairytales teach young people, including: a woman waiting for a man to rescue her, or young men kissing women without their permission. These books deal with young adult social issues, including: class differences, bullying and racism, lgbt issues, runaways, mental health issues, and violence. They are also contemporary romance stories about beating the odds, with a wholesomeness in an unsettling and dark world.

First-Person America , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 490min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the late 1930s, the Federal Writers' Project set out to create a first-person portrait of America by sending young writers around the country to interview people from diverse ethnic groups, occupations, and backgrounds. When the Writers Project closed its doors, some 10,000 of these oral histories were left gathering dust in a remote storeroom at the Library of Congress. In First Person America, Ann Banks has collected dozens of these oral histories, including a North Carolina patent-medicine pitchman, a retired Oregon prospector, a Bahamian midwife from Florida, a Key West smuggler, a Pullman Porter, and Chicago jazz musicians. There are men and women who remember meeting Billy the Kid, survived the Chicago Fire, and fled the Czar to America. They hawked lucky charms and patent medicine. They knew Bix Beiderbecke personally and tried to copy his style in Chicago jazz clubs. They peddled cake flavoring, auctioned tobacco, and fished and smuggled rum, and sometimes aliens, from Cuba to Key West. They worked in coal and granite and cotton and iron. The women quilted and pressed laundry and took in boarders and delivered babies. And when their men ran out on them they swallowed their pride and threw rent parties. Lloyd Green, a Pullman Porter in Harlem, lamented his move north to the big city, telling Federal Writer Ralph Ellison, "I'm in New York, but New York ain't in me." First Person America is narrated by Tony Kahn, a public radio veteran writer, host, and producer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tony Kahn.

Artemis , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 537min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The best-selling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller - a heist story set on the moon. Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself - and that now her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first. Bringing to life Weir's brash, whip-smart protagonist is actress Rosario Dawson (Marvel's The Defenders, Sin City, Death Proof). With the breathless immediacy of one realizing they're one cracked helmet visor away from oblivion, Dawson deftly captures Jazz's first-person perspective – all while delivering sarcastic Weir-ian one-liners and cracking wise in the face of death. And with a cast of diverse characters from all walks of life calling Artemis home, Dawson tonally somersaults to voice Kenyan prime ministers, Ukrainian scientists, and Saudi welders. It's a performance that transports listeners right alongside Jazz, matching her step for step on every lunar inch of her pulse-pounding journey. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rosario Dawson.

Going to New Orleans , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 215min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Going to New Orleans is the story of Lewis King, a jazz trumpet player who lands a gig in the Big Easy. King is a genius on cornet, but his private life is emotionally, morally, and financially bankrupt. He's a heavy drinker and compulsive sexual manipulator, prone to paranoid fits of violent rage. His girlfriend, Ms Sugarlicq, can't keep her pants on. But as equally deviant sexual predators and jealous hypocrites, they're perfect for each other... Going to New Orleans is a fantastic and graphic first-person narrative that serves as a surreal-but-faithful guide to the music, food, history, and literature of New Orleans. A spiritual book, as well as a dirty one. Tom Snyder, The Georgia Straight, wrote: "If books had bloodlines, Going to New Orleans would be a cousin to both Michael Ondaatje's Coming Through Slaughter and Tom Walmsley's Doctor Tin, and a bastard grandchild of Georges Bataille's The Story of the Eye. Like Slaughter, the protagonist is a horn player with a dark side, New Orleans in all its voodoo glory is a central character, and the language is evocative and spare. As with Tin and Eye, the all-pervasive sexuality is transgressive, perverse, algolagnic, and disturbingly captivating, like seeing a car wrecked after running the red-light district." The subtitled, A Dirty Book, underplays the sex and violence, spontaneous, public, and often anonymous, that thoroughly permiates this book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Puttonen.

Sweeping from the Great War, through the Jazz Age to the 1940s, this unforgettable tale follows the entwined lives of the Fentons, an aristocratic family from Yorkshire. Thea, the eldest daughter of Viscount Gilbert Fenton, flouts the unwritten rules of her class by embarking on a love affair with Hal, the fiercely socialist son of one of her father's tenant farmers. Carrie, her close childhood friend and granddaughter of the Viscount's nanny, has always been expected to marry Hal - but when she goes into service she finds herself longing for the one person she can never hope to marry. Olivia, the middle Fenton sister, follows a more conventional path, forging friendships with the British royal family and attending a finishing school in Germany. Her relationship with Count von der Schulenburg does not raise eyebrows, but as the mid-1930s approach, she finds herself in a country experiencing rapid, radical and dangerous social change. Violet, the youngest of the Fenton sisters, is also the most reckless. She dreams of becoming an actress in Hollywood, unaware her life will be filled with more drama than any part she will ever play. And then there is Rozalind, their American cousin, who is secretly in love with a married US Senator. Her ambitions to become a photojournalist will also take her into the heart of Hitler's Germany. Set against the rich canvas of the first half of the twentieth century, A Season of Secrets is an unforgettable tale of passion and betrayal, love and war from the ever popular Margaret Pemberton. 1.

A remarkable story of a boy who couldn't stop singing, and a man who knew how to hold 'em. For more than half a century, Kenny Rogers has been recording some of the most revered and beloved music in America and around the world. In that time, he has become a living legend by combining everything from R&B to country and gospel to folk in his unique voice to create a sound that's both wholly original and instantly recognizable. Now, in his first-ever memoir, Kenny details his lifelong journey to becoming one of American music's elder statesmen - a rare talent who's created hit records for decades while staying true to his values as a performer and a person. Exploring the struggles of his long road, his story begins simply: growing up in Depression-era Texas, living in the projects, surviving in poverty, and listening to his mother, who always had just the right piece of wisdom. Recounting his early years, first as a jazz bassist and later as a member of the pioneering folk group the New Christy Minstrels, Kenny charts how he came into his own as an artist with the First Edition, only to have the band's breakup in the 1970s raise questions about his musical future. Yet, as Kenny explains, it was precisely this soul-searching that led him to a new direction on his own in Nashville. Telling the stories that have become legends in a town that's seen many of them, he recalls the making of his career in country music and his most memorable songs, including "Lucille", "The Gambler", "Lady", and "Islands in the Stream". Along the way, he shares the friendships, both big and small, that have meant the most to him, describing the good times he's had with Dottie West, Lionel Richie, and, of course, Dolly Parton, and how through it all he continues to make music with the passion that has defined him from the start. Staring across the decades, Kenny writes a story seemingly straight from one of his songs. The end result is a rollicking r 1. Language: English. Narrator: Taber Burns.
