Shania Twain / Lanxess Arena Shania Twain kehrt nach 15 Jahren Pause mit neuem Album und Welttournee ins Rampenlicht zurück. Und ihr Motto zeigt, mit wieviel Energie die gebürtige Kanadierin dies tut: „Shania Now´´. Ihre neue Tour führt die mit 90 Millionen weltweit verkauften Tonträgern populärste Country-Pop Sängerin aller Zeiten im Herbst 2018 auch in die Barclaycard Arena Hamburg. Auch mit ihrem neuen Album reitet Twain auf einer Erfolgswelle, die sie in den Mittelpunkt des Interesses gerückt hat. Mit ihrem ersten Studioalbum seit dem Jahr 2002, das sofort an die Spitzen der internationalen Charts kletterte, und einem umjubelten Auftritt im Londoner Hydepark gelang es der Kanadierin Twain „alte´´ und auch neue Fans zu überzeugen. Die Single „Live Is About To Get Good´´ zeigt die optimistische Einstellung mit der die kanadische Crossover-Interpretin eine neue Ära eröffnet. „Ich musste sehr viel überstehen, um hierhin zu gelangen´´, sagt sie und versichert gleichzeitig, „dass ich zuhause angekommen bin.´´ „Shania Now´´ präsentiert Shania Twain erstmals als alleinige Songschreiberin und Co-Produzentin. Die fünffache Grammy-Gewinnerin gilt mit ihren Verkaufsrekorden als erfolgreichste Countrysängerin aller Zeiten. Die Queen of Country-Pop gab ihr aufsehenerregendes Debut „Shania Twain´´ 1993, 1995 folgte das bahnbrechende Multiplatin-Album „The Woman In Me´´. „Come On Over´´ 1997 entwickelte sich zum ultimativen Bestseller schlechthin und ist es bis heute mit 40 Millionen Einheiten geblieben. Mit „Up´´ erzielte Shania Twain einen veritablen Hattrick von drei aufeinander folgenden Alben, die Diamant-Auszeichnungen erhielten. Ihre kraftvolle Stimme ist das Markenzeichen von Hits wie „You’re Still The One´´, „From This Moment On´´, „That Don’t Impress Me Much´´, „Ka-Ching!”, ´´I’m Gonna Getcha Good”, ´´Man, I Feel Like A Woman” und ´´Come On Over”, um nur einige zu nennen. Shania Twain war es seit ihrer Jugend gewohnt, zu kämpfen. Acht lange Jahre brauchte sie, um eine schwere Borreliose-Infektion zu überwinden. 2012 dann ein zweijähriges sensationelles Gastspiel in Las Vegas, 2015 die Comeback Tour in den USA und 2016 der „Billboard Woman in Music Icon Award´´. Und jetzt: „Shania Now´´ mit der Rückkehr nach Europa.

Twain & Stanley Enter Paradise, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Oscar Hijuelos, is a luminous work of fiction inspired by the real-life, 37-year friendship between two towering figures of the late 19th century, famed writer and humorist Mark Twain and legendary explorer Sir Henry Morton Stanley. Hijuelos was fascinated by the Twain-Stanley connection and eventually began researching and writing a novel that used the scant historical record of their relationship as a starting point for a more detailed fictional account. It was a labor of love for Hijuelos, who worked on the project for more than 10 years, publishing other novels along the way but always returning to Twain and Stanley; indeed, he was still revising the manuscript the day before his sudden passing in 2013. The resulting novel is a richly woven tapestry of people and events that is unique among the author´s works, both in theme and structure. Hijuelos ingeniously blends correspondence, memoir, and third-person omniscience to explore the intersection of these Victorian giants in a long-vanished world. From their early days as journalists in the American West to their admiration and support of each other´s writing, their mutual hatred of slavery, their social life together in the dazzling literary circles of the period, and even a mysterious journey to Cuba to search for Stanley´s adoptive father, Twain & Stanley Enter Paradise superbly channels two vibrant but very different figures. It is also a study of Twain´s complex bond with Mrs. Stanley, the bohemian portrait artist Dorothy Tennant, who introduces Twain and his wife to the world of séances and mediums after the tragic death of their daughter. A compelling and deeply felt historical fantasia that utilizes the full range of Hijuelos´ gifts, Twain & Stanley Enter Paradise stands as an unforgettable coda to a brilliant writing career. 1.

Mark Twain: A Life, Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 652min

Mark Twain founded the American voice. His works are a living national treasury: taught, quoted, and reprinted more than those of any writer except Shakespeare. His awestruck contemporaries saw him as the representative figure of his times, and his influence has deeply flavored the 20th and 21st centuries. Yet somehow, beneath the vast flowing river of literature that he left behind, books, sketches, speeches, not to mention the thousands of letters to his friends and his remarkable entries in private journals, the man who became Mark Twain, Samuel Langhorne Clemens, has receded from view, leaving us with only faint and often trivialized remnants of his towering personality. In Mark Twain, Ron Powers consummates years of thought and research with a tour de force on the life of our culture´s founding father, re-creating the 19th century´s vital landscapes and tumultuous events while restoring the human being at their center. He offers Sam Clemens as he lived, breathed, and wrote, drawing heavily on the preserved viewpoints of the people who knew him best (especially the great William Dean Howells, his most admiring friend and literary co-conspirator), and on the annals of the American 19th century that he helped shape. Powers´s prose rivals Mark Twain´s own in its blend of humor, telling detail, and flights of lyricism. With the assistance of the Mark Twain Project at Berkeley, he has been able to draw on thousands of letters and notebook entries, many only recently discovered. 1. Language: English.

´´I’ve struck it!” Mark Twain wrote in a 1904 letter to a friend. ´´And I will give it away - to you. You will never know how much enjoyment you have lost until you get to dictating your autobiography.” Thus, after dozens of false starts and hundreds of pages, Twain embarked on his ´´Final (and Right) Plan” for telling the story of his life. His innovative notion - to ´´talk only about the thing which interests you for the moment” - meant that his thoughts could range freely. The strict instruction that many of these texts remain unpublished for 100 years meant that when they came out, he would be ´´dead, and unaware, and indifferent” and that he was therefore free to speak his ´´whole frank mind”. The year 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of Twain’s death. In celebration of this important milestone, here, for the first time, is Mark Twain’s uncensored autobiography, in its entirety, exactly as he left it. This major literary event offers the first of three volumes and presents Mark Twain’s authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave, as he intended. Edited by Harriet Elinor Smith and other editors of the Mark Twain Project. Mark Twain (1835 - 1910) was born Samuel L. Clemens in the town of Florida, Missouri. One of the most popular and influential authors our nation has ever produced, his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from both critics and peers. He has been called not only the greatest humorist of his age but the father of American literature. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grover Gardner.

Pudd´nhead Wilson: A Tale by Mark Twain , Hörbu...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Pudd´nhead Wilson, like many other Mark Twain books, was read aloud by the author to his wife and daughters, chapter by chapter, as it was being written. This humorous, dramatic, and sometimes shocking novel, set in the pre-war south, is the tale of Roxy, a beautiful and intelligent slave woman who contrives to save her own light-skinned child from being ´´sold down the river´´. She successfully switches her baby with the master´s own child, starting a chain of events that lead to surprising and tragic results. This book is considered by many to be Mark Twain´s best book dealing with the cruelty, horror, and inhumanity of slavery in 19th century America. Pudd´nhead, the title character, not only provides humorous aphorisms and wry observations on the little river town, he also proves to be the catalyst that solves the mystery, radically changing the lives of all of those involved. Interestingly, Mark Twain´s use of fingerprints as evidence in a fictional criminal trial predated the official acceptance of such evidence in actual U.S. courts by two years. This recording is a recreation of Mark Twain´s own reading, just as his family might have heard the story for the first time in the family library. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Henzel.

€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

John Hay, Lincoln´s private secretary and later secretary of state under presidents McKinley and Roosevelt, and Samuel Langhorne Clemens, famous as ´´Mark Twain´´, grew up 50 miles apart on the banks of the Mississippi River in the same rural antebellum stew of race, class, and want. This shared history drew them together in the late 1860s, and their mutual admiration never waned in spite of sharp differences. In The Statesman and the Storyteller, the last decade of their lives plays out against the tumultuous events of the day, as the United States government begins to aggressively pursue a policy of imperialism, overthrowing the duly elected queen of Hawaii; violently wresting Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines away from Spain; and finally supporting a revolution to clear a path for the building of the US-controlled Panama Canal. Stunning in its relevance, The Statesman and the Storyteller explores the tactics of America´s earliest global policies and their influence on US actions for years to follow. Ultimately, it is the very human rendering of Clemens and Hay that distinguishes Zwonitzer´s work, providing profound insights into the lives of two men who helped define their era. 1.

In Charles River Editors’ History for Kids series, your children can learn about history’s most important people and events in an easy, entertaining, and educational way. The concise but comprehensive book will keep your kid’s attention all the way to the end. While Halley’s Comet lit up Earth’s sky in 1835, America’s biggest literature star was born. Though Samuel Langhorne Clemens toiled in obscurity as a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi and to this day remains a name oft forgotten, that young man became famous around the globe under his unforgettable pseudonym, Mark Twain. Although Twain spent the first 30 years of his life working odd jobs, his printing background, sharp wit, and humor helped establish him first as a journalist and later an author. His writing career took off in 1865 after his humorous short story "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" was published. Newspapers enamored with his humorous accounts of his travels began hiring him to chronicle his trips through travelogues, such as The Innocents Abroad or The New Pilgrims´ Progress and A Tramp Abroad. Twain’s meteoric rise in literature took off in the 1870s with the publications of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Prince and the Pauper, novels that demonstrated Twain’s versatility, with Tom Sawyer capturing the essence of American childhood along the Mississippi and The Prince and the Pauper providing a biting social commentary that displayed Twain’s wit and humor. Those books were followed by Twain’s crowning achievement, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which combined the whimsical adventurousness of Tom Sawyer with social commentary about American culture and its treatment of blacks. 1.
