Exclusively from Audible When Isabel Archer, a beautiful, spirited American, is brought to Europe by her wealthy aunt Touchett, it is expected that she will soon marry. But Isabel, resolved to enjoy the freedom that her fortune has opened up and to determine her own fate, does not hesitate to turn down two eligible suitors, declaring that she will never be wed. It is only when she finds herself irresistibly drawn to the cultivated but worthless Gilbert Osmond that she discovers that wealth is a two-edged sword. She becomes a victim of her own provincialism and the scheming of her friends, learning only too late that there is a price to be paid for independence. A tragic tale of love and betrayal, it still resonates with audiences today. With its subtle delineation of American characters in a European setting, The Portrait of a Lady is considered the masterpiece of the first phase of James´s career and arguably his most popular story. Within it we find a reflection of James´s interest in the differences between the New World and the Old, often to the detriment of the former. A film adaptation was made in 1996 by New Zealand director Jane Campion, starring Nicole Kidman, John Malkovich, and Barbara Hershey.

As one of the most glamorous and successful actresses in Hollywood and one half of super-couple ´´Brangelina´´, Angelina Jolie seems to have it all. But life hasn´t always been so easy for the world´s most seductive star.... She endured a painful, complicated childhood that left her relationship with her famous father, respected actor Jon Voight, in tatters. Even as she followed in his acting footsteps, it was always her passionate relationships with both men and women, her private fantasies, her numerous tattoos and her thoughts of suicide that garnered the most attention with the popular press and gave her a reputation as Hollywood´s bad girl. But now, raising her three adopted and three biological children with Brad Pitt, and fully dedicated to her work with refugees as goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, Angelina has turned that reputation around. The Academy Award and three-time Golden Globe-winning actress has finally found a way to balance the extreme highs and lows of fame with the stable family home she has always been searching for. This story of the trials, scandals, adventures and romances of Angelina Jolie is an insightful, inspiring must-listen for every fan. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lynsey Frost.

With Ossie and Ruby: In This Life Together, Hör...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee are legendary stars of the American stage, television, and film, cherished not merely for their gifts as actors but also for their lifelong commitment to human rights, family values, and community. Now, in a joint memoir that celebrates half a century of successful marriage, they look back on the extraordinary careers that earned each a Presidential Medal for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts. With Ossie and Ruby overflows with consummate storytelling skill, but it´s much more than a wonderfully engaging self-portrait. For as they reminisce in alternating chapters, Ossie and Ruby offer a vivid picture of the twentieth-century African-American experience, both in the rural South and the urban North. For Ossie and Ruby, stardom and social responsibility were inseparable, so along with their theatrical stories of Broadway and Hollywood, where black actors fought to escape racial stereotypes, they offer an insider´s chronicle of political commitment that drew the wrath of Senator Joe McCarthy and, later, the friendship of both Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. And, perhaps most important to them, here is the story of their private lives and the family whose love and security more than repaid the sacrifices they made. Often funny, occasionally heartbreaking, and always clear-eyed and candid about themselves and the world they helped to shape, Ossie and Ruby have recorded a book sure to win the heart of anyone who cares about American theater, the struggle for civil rights, and the deep, inspiring values that have guided the lives of two great artists who blazed a triumphant trail. For the first time ever, experience this archival tour de force recording. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee.
