Christopher Isherwood - Mr Norris se ne va
Italian | Einaudi | 1993 | ISBN: 8806132695 | 233 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Terzo romanzo di Isherwood, pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1933, Mr. Norris se ne va è ambientato nella Berlino che precede l'avvento del nazismo. Il narratore, un giovane che vive dando lezioni d'inglese, fa la conoscenza dell'ambiguo Mr. Norris, una specie di avventuriero imbroglione che compie con distratto cinismo le sue truffe. Costretto ad allontanarsi da Berlino inseguito dai creditori, ne ritorna in veste di improbabile spia, al soldo dei servizi segreti francesi, presso il partito comunista tedesco. Ma dopo poco è obbligato a fuggire da Berlino, che sta per assistere all'ascesa di Hitler, e a girare per il mondo. Il testo è considerato una parabola politica sulla leggerezza con cui le potenze occidentali seguirono la crisi della Germania lasciando che cadesse in mano ai nazisti, Mr Norris se ne va è considerato uno dei capolavori di Isherwood.

In communist Romania, thousands of Western films on bootleg VHS tapes — mostly Hollywood action movies — were smuggled behind the Iron Curtain, opening a window into the free world. Under President Nicolae Ceaușescu, Romania was culturally isolated and ideologically censored. Images of life outside its borders were cut off and TV was reduced to propaganda bulletins. From the drab concrete housing blocks to the food ration lines, the threat of surveillance prevented people from stepping out of line. But in the mid-1980s, under the nose of the Securitate, Ceaușescu’s secret police, thousands of Hollywood films were smuggled into the country by an underground operative named Zamfir, and they were all covertly dubbed by Irina Nistor, a courageous translator whose distinct voice captivated the nation and became a symbol of freedom. As we see through evocative re-creations in Chuck Norris vs Communism, a network of secret screening rooms sprung up across Romania as families, friends, and neighbors gathered to watch action heroes like Norris, Van Damme, and Stallone, along with romantic comedies, dramas, and Hollywood epics.

Against All Odds by Chuck Norris
B&H | 2013 | ASIN: B004HFS3S0 | 246 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

A New York Times best seller. Millions of people worldwide know Chuck Norris as the star of more than twenty motion pictures, a martial arts expert, and the only man in the Western Hemisphere to hold an eighth degree Black Belt Grand Master in Tae Kwon Do. Countless others see him daily in syndicated reruns as the hero of the longest running CBS series to date, “Walker, Texas Ranger.” What many don’t know is that Chuck Norris is a sincere Christian–a man whose faith plays a role in everything he does. Against All Odds is the inspirational story of how Norris overcame abject poverty from childhood, the effects of his father’s alcoholism and desertion of the family, and his own shyness and lack of strength and ability early in his life. Norris writes candidly about the past and gives God full credit for where he is today.

Since there are not that many alumni of Duke Ellington's orchestra active, it is surprising that altoist Norris Turney (who was with Ellington from 1969-1973 and eventually replaced the unreplaceable Johnny Hodges) has not been recorded all that extensively during the 20 years since. In fact, his Mapleshade debut is the 72-year-old's first session at the head of a quartet and the music's obvious success is even more impressive when one realizes that Turney had never played with the other musicians (pianist Larry Willis, bassist Walter Booker, and drummer Jimmy Cobb) before. Norris Turney is a melodic swing player with a large tone and, since the rhythm section is quite supportive and sympathetic, these renditions of blues, ballads, and standards came together rather quickly.
