Violet Hetherington has taken the rash step of joining a transatlantic cruise ship to New York to visit Edwin, an old friend. As she makes the six day crossing, she relives the traumatic events that led to her losing Edwin's friendship, and abandoning her career as a poet, for the safety of marriage and domesticity. Despite her natural reserve, she meets a rich variety of passengers travelling with her, who affect her understanding of her own past. Most significantly, she meets Dino, the dance host, whose motives in befriending Vi are shady, but who teaches her to ballroom dance - and inadvertently helps her to recover from her past. Moving between the late 60s and the present day, Dancing Backwards is written with the lightness of touch and psychological insight which characterise Salley Vickers' acclaimed work. This bittersweet novel is subtle, poignant and wonderfully entertaining. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jilly Bond. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hcuk/000462/bk_hcuk_000462_sample.mp3.

The Venerable Vincent Beattie (eBook, ePUB)
11,08 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Vincent is a privileged introvert navigating his formative years at two elite Manhattan private schools in the late-2000s. He plays sports, acts, ballroom dances, and lives a teenage life of which many would dream. But as eighth grade comes to a close, Vincent will be moving from a suit-and-tie single-sex education to an easygoing, co-ed high school. His future goals consist of finding his first girlfriend, making a large group of friends, and figuring out what he wants to do for a career. Yet, his neurotic and rigid nature, troubling familial relationships, and inherent cowardice make growing up in this world exceedingly tricky and painful.The Venerable Vincent Beattie is stylistically similar to some classic, early 20th-century fiction, but the story is told through a contemporary filter, where texting, Blackberrys, Facebook, Instagram, Skype, and the 2000s' famed music and pop culture are a focal point. This relatable story occasionally cuts away from the narrative to show what music a character is listening to, along with pages of solely texted conversations. It combines the tried-and-true formula of the coming-of-age novel with updates from the new millennium, creating a fascinatingly unique reading experience.

So, here I am, sitting ay my wife’s law firm event party of the year. It is always held in a ballroom at a five-star hotel every year. My wife, Victoria, was a lawyer in a law firm. Not necessarily true, she was one of the partners in one of the biggest law firms in our city, if not state. Her firm handles all sorts of clients from corporations to hospitals to multi-millionaires. Yeah, the big time. See that beautiful women dressed in the royal blue Versace dress? The one with the long wavy auburn red hair, glowing green eyes, long legs, tight round ass, round but perky breasts and the perfect smile and charm that made any healthy straight man do a double take of her when she walks into a room. Hell, who am I kidding? She can make a gay man do a double take as well. My wife, men wanted her and women wanted to be her. She carried an air of confidence that the first lady of the U.S.A. would envy. She could work a room like a politician and carry herself gracefully like a queen. In many ways she was a queen. My queen. She ruled me, our home, everything. We have been married for about ten years now and eight of those ten years I have been her cuckold husband. I used to have it all in the career field. I was a medical professor at a well-known medical school. That is until cutbacks. I was just a year away from tenure, when the axe fell and those of us without tenure were taken off staff and left without employment. Victoria had been making most of the money anyway, so we, well, actually she decided that it was in her best interest for me to stay at home and remain unemployed and to serve her and be at her beckon call. Believe it or not though, the whole original cuckold idea came from me. I was surfing the internet one night when Victoria was working late at the office. Or so she says she was. I was on a porn site and there was an advertisement for videos of cuckold husbands. I had never heard the term “cuckold” before, so nat 1. Language: English. Narrator: K. Krutz.

A four-volume set of romantic dramas by Australian director Baz Luhrmann. 'Australia' (2008) is a sweeping historical epic set in northern Australia during1941. Lady Sarah Ashley (Nicole Kidman) inherits a vast cattle ranch in the unforgiving Australian outback and reluctantly teams up with a rough-edged drover (Hugh Jackman) to drive her 2,000 head of cattle hundreds of miles over some of the world's most desolate landscape. Ewan McGregor stars in 'Moulin Rouge' (2001) as Christian, an aspiring bohemian writer eking out a living in late 19th century Paris, who falls tragically in love with its biggest star, Satine (Kidman). In 'Romeo and Juliet' (1996) Luhrmann transposes Shakespeare's tragic romance to the futuristic urban backdrop of Verona Beach, California. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. Finally, in 'Strictly Ballroom' (1992), Paul Mercurio plays Scott, a talented dancer with a streak of individualism that does not endear him either to his partners, the judges of the Pan-Pacific Grand Prix, or his ambitious dance tutor mum (Shirley Hastings). Frumpy Fran (Tara Morice) is the only woman who will partner him, and she utilises her Spanish background to bring heart, soul and pasa doblé rhythm to Scott's ambitious style.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Blue Cheer were an American psychedelic blues-rock band that initially performed and recorded in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and were sporadically active from that point on until 2009. Based in San Francisco, Blue Cheer played in a psychedelic blues-rock style, and are also credited as being pioneers of heavy metal (their cover of "Summertime Blues" is sometimes cited as the first in the genre), punk rock, stoner rock, doom metal, experimental rock, and grunge. According to Tim Hills in his book, The Many Lives of the Crystal Ballroom, "Blue Cheer was the epitome of San Francisco psychedelia. The band is named after a street brand of LSD and promoted by renowned LSD chemist and former Grateful Dead patron, Owsley Stanley." Jim Morrison of The Doors called the group, "The single most powerful band I've ever seen."

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Robert E. Freed (born May 4, 1919, in Salt Lake City) was an American entertainment mogul and prominent civil rights leader in the state of Utah. Together with his brothers Dan, David and Peter he rescued Lagoon Amusement Park in Farmington, Utah from the brink of collapse after World War II and helped develop it into a first-class family amusement resort. He was fiercely dedicated to the causes of equality, when the Freed family and their partner, Ranch Kimball, took over the lease of Lagoon, the terms forbade blacks in the swimming pool and the ballroom in accordance with a Farmington town ordinance. By the late 1940s, Robert Freed had succeeded in fully opening Lagoon to blacks, and when his company acquired the Rainbow Gardens, later known as the Terrace Ballroom, the same policy was adopted. He died on July 17, 1974 in Salt Lake City of cancer.
