John Berger’s Classic Text on Art
John Berger’s Ways of Seeing is one of the most stimulating and the most influential books on art in any language. First published in 1972, it was based on the BBC television series about which the (London) Sunday Times critic commented: “This is an eye-opener in more ways than one: by concentrating on how we look at paintings . . . he will almost certainly change the way you look at pictures.” By now he has.

“Berger has the ability to cut right through the mystification of the professional art critics . . . He is a liberator of images: and once we have allowed the paintings to work on us directly, we are in a much better position to make a meaningful evaluation” —Peter Fuller, Arts Review

    On Warne:

    Gideon Haigh on Shane Warne is an irresistible pairing: ‘the finest cricket writer alive’ (The Australian) on the greatest cricketer of our times. The resulting masterpiece is as much about our fascination with Warnie as it is about the player himself.

    Who doesn’t know the name Shane Warne?
    Now that the Australian cricketer who dominated airwaves and headlines for twenty years has turned full-time celebrity and media event, his sporting conquests and controversies are receding steadily into the past.

    But what was it like to watch Warne at his long peak, the man of a thousand international wickets, the incarnation of Australian audacity and cheek? Our leading cricket writer, Gideon Haigh, lived and loved the Warne era, when the impossible was everyday, and the sensational every other day.
    In On Warne, he relives the era’s highs, its lows, its fun and its follies. Drawing on interviews conducted with Warne over the course of a decade, and two decades of watching him play, Haigh assesses this greatest of sportsmen as cricketer, character, comrade, newsmaker and national figure – a natural in an increasingly regimented time, a simplifier in a growingly complicated world. The result is one of the finest cricket books ever written, a whole new way of looking at its subject, at sport, and at Australia.

    One day, you might be asked what cricket in the time of Warne was like. On Warne is the definitive account.

  • Robin Rinaldi: The Wild Oats Project

    Robin Rinaldi The Wild Oats Project

    Epub, mobi

    What if for just one year you explored everything you’d wondered about sex but hadn’t tried?
    The project was simple: An attractive, successful magazine journalist, Robin Rinaldi, would move into a San Francisco apartment, join a dating site, and get laid. Never mind that she already owned a beautiful flat a few blocks away, that she was forty-four, or that she was married to a man she’d been in love with for eighteen years. What followed—a year of sex, heartbreak, and unexpected revelation—is the topic of this riveting memoir, The Wild Oats Project.
    An open marriage was never one of Rinaldi’s goals—her priority as she approached midlife was to start a family. But when her husband insisted on a vasectomy, she decided that she could remain married only on her own terms. If I can’t have children, she told herself, then I’m going to have lovers. During the week she would live alone, seduce men (and women), attend erotic workshops, and partake in wall-banging sex. On the weekends, she would go home and be a wife.
    At a time when the bestseller lists are topped by books about eroticism and the shifting roles of women, this brave memoir explores how our sexuality defines us—and it delivers the missing link: an everywoman’s account of sex. Combining the strong literary voice of Cheryl Strayed’s Wild with the adventurousness of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, LoveThe Wild Oats Project challenges our sensibilities and evokes the delicate balance between loving others and staying true to oneself.

  • Chasing Lost Time: The Life of C. K. Scott Moncrieff: Soldier, Spy, and Translator

    Chasing Lost Time: The Life of C. K. Scott Moncrieff: Soldier, Spy, and Translator By Jean Findlay
    Pdf, epub, mobi


    C. K. Scott Moncrieff’s celebrated translation of Proust’s A La Recherche du Temps Perdu was first published in 1922 and was a work which would exhaust and consume the translator,leading to his early death at the age of just forty. Joseph Conrad told him, ‘I was more interested and fascinated by your rendering than by Proust’s creation’: some literary figures even felt it was an improvement on the original.

    From the outside an enigma, Scott Moncrieff left a trail of writings that describe a man expert at living a paradoxical life: fervent Catholic convert and homosexual, gregarious party-goer and deeply lonely, interwar spy in Mussolini’s Italy and public man of letters – a man for whom honour was the most abiding principle. He was a decorated war hero, and his letters home are an unusually light take on day-to-day life on the front. Described as ‘offensively brave’, he was severely injured in 1917 and, convalescing in London, became a lynchpin of literary society – friends with Robert Graves and Noel Coward, enemies with Siegfried Sassoon and in love with Wilfred Owen.

    Written by Scott Moncrieff’s great-great-niece, Jean Findlay, with exclusive access to the family archive, Chasing Lost Time is a portrait of a man hurled into war, through an era when the world was changing fast and forever, who brought us the greatest epic of time and memory that has ever been written.

  • Strange Intelligence: Memoirs of Naval Secret Service by Hector Bywater

     

    Strange Intelligence: Memoirs of Naval Secret Service by Hector Bywater
    English | 9 Jun. 2015 | ISBN: 1849548846 | 304 Pages | EPUB/AZW3/PDF (conv) | 5.13 MB

    Hector C. Bywater was perhaps the British secret service’s finest agent
    operating in Germany before the First World War, tasked with collecting
    intelligence on naval installations. Recruited by Mansfield Cumming, the
    first ‘C'(or head of what would become MI6), Bywater was given the
    designation ‘H2O’ in what was a rather obvious play on his name and the
    equivalent of James Bond’s ‘007’. Indeed, the charming, courageous
    Bywater probably came as close to the popular image of Ian Fleming’s
    most famous character as any British secret agent ever did.

    Originally written up in 1930 as a series of thrilling articles in the
    Daily Telegraph, his experiences were soon turned into a book, with the
    help of Daily Express journalist H. C. Ferraby, collating Bywater’s
    espionage endeavours in one rollicking tale of secret service adventure.
    Although the identities of the British spies carrying out the missions
    in Strange Intelligence are disguised, we now know that most of them
    were in fact Bywater himself.

    Ahead of a war that was to put the British Navy to its sternest test
    since Trafalgar, Bywater reveals how he and his fellow agents deceived
    the enemy to gather vital intelligence on German naval capabilities. His
    account is a true classic of espionage and derring-do.

    The Dialogue Espionage Classics series began in 2010 with the purpose of
    bringing back classic out-of-print spy stories that should never be
    forgotten. From the Great War to the Cold War, from the French
    Resistance to the Cambridge Five, from Special Operations to Bletchley
    Park, this fascinating spy history series includes some of the best
    military, espionage and adventure stories ever told.



  • Zen Masters of Japan: The Second Step East by Richard Bryan McDaniel

    Zen Masters of Japan: The Second Step East by Richard Bryan McDaniel
    English | 2013 | ISBN: 4805312726 | 288 pages | PDF | 4 MB

    Zen Masters of Japan is the second book in a series that traces Zen’s
    profoundly historic journey as it spread eastward from China and Japan,
    toward the United States. Following Zen Masters of China, this book
    concentrates on Zen’s significant passage through Japan. More
    specifically, it describes the lineage of the great teachers, the
    Pioneers who set out to enlighten an island ready for an inner
    transformation based on compassionate awareness.

    While the existing Buddhist establishment in Japan met early Zen
    pioneers like Dogen and Eisai with fervent resistance, Zen Buddhism
    ultimately perservered and continued to become further transformed in
    its passage through Japan. The Japanese culture and Japanese Buddhism
    practices further deepened and strengthened Zen training by combining it
    with a variety of esoteric contemplative arts the arts of poetry, the
    tea ceremony, calligraphy, and archery. Zen Masters of Japan chronicles
    this journey, and shows how the new practices soon gained in popularity
    among all walks of life from the lowly peasant, offering a hope of
    reincarnation and a better life; to the Samurai warrior due to its
    casual approach to death; to the ruling classes, challenging the
    intelligentsia because of its scholarly roots. A collection of Zen
    stories, meditation, and their wisdom, Zen Masters of Japan also
    explores the illusive state of ‘No Mind’ achieved in Japan that is so
    fundamental to Zen practices today.

  • The Man Who Knew Too Much: Alan Turing and the Invention of the Computer (Great Discoveries) by David Leavitt

      

    The Man Who Knew Too Much: Alan Turing and the Invention of the Computer (Great Discoveries) by David Leavitt

    Pdf, epub, mobi
     To solve one of the great mathematical problems of his day, Alan Turing proposed an imaginary computer. Then, attempting to break a Nazi code during World War II, he successfully designed and built one, thus ensuring the Allied victory. Turing became a champion of artificial intelligence, but his work was cut short. As an openly gay man at a time when homosexuality was illegal in England, he was convicted and forced to undergo a humiliating “treatment” that may have led to his suicide.
    With a novelist’s sensitivity, David Leavitt portrays Turing in all his humanity—his eccentricities, his brilliance, his fatal candor—and elegantly explains his work and its implications.
