To piger fra det nordvestlige London drømmer om at blive dansere, men kun den ene har talent. Den anden er optaget af rytme og tid, af sorte kroppe og sort musik, af hvad det vil sige at høre til og være fri. De to piger udvikler et tæt, men aldrig ukompliceret venskab, som ender pludseligt, da pigerne er i begyndelsen af tyverne. Et venskab som de aldrig genoptager, men som de heller ikke kan glemme. Tracy bliver professionel danser, mens fortælleren lægger barndommens arbejderkvarter bag sig og rejser verden rundt som assistent for Aimee, en verdenskendt popstjerne. Men da deres vejere senere krydses, har de begge forandret sig. Med Swing Time har Zadie Smith skrevet en sprudlende og globaliseret samtidsroman om venskab, musik og rødder, der ikke slipper så let.

Les Cinquantes Sonnets is the first book by poet Kelechukwu Brnfre (www.kelechukwubrnfre.com) This is my first book of poetry that includes my signature poem "e;Zero."e;I wrote this book as a gift to my fiancee at the time for her birthday. I wrote 34 poems for her 34th birthday in the form of Sonnets. I was reading Shakespeare at the time and I was inspired by his sonnets but I formed all of these poems in 16 lines because her favorite number was 16. The first 34 poems were influenced by her and the last 17 poems were influenced by a mixture of people, emotions and situations.I am very thankful for Erica Walker reading it over and encouraging me to make all of last 17 stay consistent with a theme of love, a subject I struggle to write about because it is so subjective. Loving a family member or your children is different from a person you are involved with intimately in a relationship.The format of this book starts with zero and goes to fifty. I used French because I am bilingual French and it seemed to fit the scheme and format of the subject matter in the book.

This work began with the taking of notes on insightsand observations derived from contemplation of the Bible, my own life, and thedeath of my sister. The writings wereinitially oriented toward the composition of a filmscript, whose purpose was todepict, abstractly, scenes common to the lives of all mankind from birth todeath.In February of 1984, well over a year into thisproject, these lyrics began to pour forth from me. Three-quarters of them were finished before the end of the month.During this period of my life, I underwent anintense conversion to purity of soul. Iimmersed myself in the practice of all the artistic mediums, including paintingand sculpture, poetry, music, dance, and drama. Striving to be an artist for Christ, my life became as a crossbetween graduate student, monk, and convict.This way of living and working continued for sevenyears and resulted in the creation of the large manuscript, Songs forChildren of Light: Ten Albums of Lyrics, Music, Dance, and Drama. In this volume, I present the lyric portionof the project with accompanying illustrations.May the Light of the Spirit be with you as you readthe words herein.James KurtJune 23, 1995

The Thriller: Scripting Seat-Gripping Suspense plumbs nine-score thrillers for recurring features that build nape-prickling, heart-pounding suspense. Fodder for analysis embraces domestic and foreign fare, classic and contemporary, ranging from Ghost, Speed, Seven, Psycho, and The Silence of the Lambs to La Femme Nikita and Yogen [Premonition].Text eschews a connecting-the-dots, painting-by-numbers approach, in belief that formulas drain the lifeblood of creativity and inevitably spawn a ho-hum product. That said, the eight factors culled from the covered films constitute useful tools in the screenwriter's arsenal.Perhaps the best groundwork for a thriller is infiltrating the ATF/FBI/IRA, or a brigade of arms-running mercenaries. Short of that, watching films and reading scripts will work wonders. In that spirit, the book debuts three feature-film scripts for critical scrutiny: mystery thriller "e;Stateline"e;; police thriller "e;Cashing Out"e;; supernatural thriller "e;Birthmarks."e;

Pull back the curtain on therealhistory of magic and discoverwhy magic reallymatters If you read a standard history of magic, you learn that it begins in ancient Egypt, with the resurrection of a goose in front of the Pharaoh. You discover how magicians were tortured and killed during the age of witchcraft. You are told how conjuring tricks were used to quell rebellious colonial natives. The history of magic is full of such stories, which turn out not to be true. Behind the smoke and mirrors, however, lies the real story of magic. It is a history of people from humble roots, who made and lost fortunes, and who deceived kings and queens. In order to survive, they concealed many secrets, yet they revealed some and they stole others. They engaged in deception, exposure, and betrayal, in a quest to make the impossible happen. They managed to survive in a world in which a series of technological wonders appeared, which previous generations would have considered magical. Even today, when we now take the most sophisticated technology for granted, we can still be astonished by tricks that were performed hundreds of years ago. The Secret History of Magic reveals how this was done. It is about why magic matters in a world that no longer seems to have a place for it, but which desperately needs a sense of wonder.

Combining history, interviews with dancers, technical definitions, descriptions of performances, and personal stories, Jacobs offers an intimate and passionate guide to watching ballet and understanding the central elements of choreography.Beautifully written and elegantly illustrated with original drawings, Celestial Bodies is essential reading for all lovers of this magnificent art form.
