More than anything, ten-year-old Weezie wants to please her momma. She babysits her spoiled half-sister, Ruth Ann, and little Jackson. She makes tea for Momma in Gramma Emmeline’s beautiful teapot. She even tries to cook dinner. But nothing turns out quite right. And Momma is never pleased. Hard times and a daddy who ran off before she was born seem to have stolen all of Momma’s love. If only Weezie could find her daddy, she’s sure her life would be happier. Tired of making up stories about a parent she knows nothing about, Weezie teams up with her bike-riding buddy, Calvin, and new friend, Louella, to find her mysterious father. Does he drive a truck? Sing country and western songs? Why, her real daddy might even be better than the made-up father she’s been telling lies about at school! Now, all she has to do is find him. Jean Van Leeuwen’s poignant, powerful novel introduces a feisty heroine whose brave search proves that even a life that’s missing important pieces can be chock full of things that matter. 1.

Girl Boy Girl: How I Became JT Leroy , Hörbuch,...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The JT LeRoy scandal is a story of our times. In January 2006, the New York Times unmasked Savannah Knoop as the face of the mysterious author JT LeRoy. A media frenzy ensued as JT's fans, mentors, and readers came to terms with the fact that the gay male-ex-truck stop prostitute turned literary wunderkind was really a girl from San Francisco whose sister-in-law wrote the books.  Girl Boy Girl is the story of how Savannah Knoop led this bizarre double life for six years, trading a precarious existence as a college dropout for a life in which she was embraced by celebrities and artists - Carrie Fisher, Courtney Love, Mary Ellen Mark, Winona Ryder, Asia Argento, Sharon Olds, Gus Van Sant, Mike Pitt, Calvin Klein, and Shirley Manson, to name a few - and traveled the world. Telling her side of the story for the first time, Savannah reveals how being perceived as a boy gave her a sense of confidence and entitlement she never had before. Her love affair with Asia Argento is particularly wrenching, as they embark on an intimate relationship that causes more alienation than closeness.  As Savannah and Laura struggle over control of the JT character, Savannah realizes the limits of the game - and inadvertently finds herself through the adventure of being someone else. 1.

Modest Mouse
28,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

More than any other band, Modest Mouse represented the ascendency of indie rock at the turn of the millennium. True dyed-in-the-wool independent musicians, Modest Mouse originated in the thriving mid-90s Northwest music scene orbiting Calvin Johnson's K Records and founded on an uncompromising idealism handed down from punk forefathers. After years of touring and recording, in 2004, these indie darlings became full-blown, mainstream rock stars with the release of their platinum-selling Good News for People Who Love Bad News, changing the face of popular rock music and opening the door for a new wave of like-minded peers. Pat Graham and Isaac Brock were housemates in 1992 at the activist punk house Positive Force, just outside of Washington, D.C. Isaac was learning guitar and writing songs while Pat was documenting the punk scene in Washington, D.C. Isaac moved out and eventually ended up in Washington state where, in 1993, he formed Modest Mouse. In 1997 Modest Mouse embarked on their first U.S. tour, and Isaac asked Pat to come out and help with managing and driving, and to document the tour. What followed over the next 12 years were a continuing friendship and many tours across the USA, Europe, and Japan-and Graham always had his camera in hand. Modest Mouse: 1992-2010, is Graham's firsthand, intimate, visual history of a good friend and the band that he created. His photographs of Isaac Brock and Modest Mouse are a rare and privileged view into the greatest fantasy of all-becoming a rock star. Onstage and 10,000 miles off of it, Graham's remarkable photos record the broken down vans, overflowing merch tables, adoring fans, blown amps, couches turned into beds for weary tour mates, performance injuries, more filthy than average motel rooms, run-of-the-mill truck-stops, zen moments and breathtaking landscapes, and scores of other sights of almost a decade on the road, along with both compelling and candid portraits of the band members and their friends-depicting the transformation of a band struggling to get to the next town just to play a basement concert into stars headlining arena shows. Witness to all the highs and the lows of the road to fame, Modest Mouse also features stories from the people involved, including band members Isaac Brock, Jeremiah Green, and Eric Judy; fellow musicians James Mercer of the Shins and Doug Martsch from Built to Spill; and friends like the artist Jay Ryan. The first and only book on the history of Modest Mouse and the lives of the band members, and a unique and intimate look at the origin, growth, and explosion of an indie rock band at the cusp of the millennium, Modest Mouse: 1992-2010 is a treasure for anyone interested in a back stage pass and a deeper understanding of the glory, grit, and grime of rock and roll stardom.
