Memoriile unei gheise

Editura: Humanitas

Bestseller international, numarul 1 in topurile din Europa si America, vandut in peste 4 milioane de exemplare si tradus in peste 35 de limbi. Ecranizarea romanului poarta semnatura regizorului Rob Marshall si a primit in 2006 un premiu Globul de Aur, 3 premii Oscar si 3 premii Bafta. Ce este o gheisa ? Un obiect al dorintei. O opera de arta in miscare. Un actor, un artizan, un entertainer , dupa traditia japoneza. Un tip uman la granita cliseului cultural, imposibil de redat in categoriile occidentale. Sau poate doar o femeie care poseda, in cea mai inalta masura, rafinamentul artelor lumesti. Chiyo, o fata dintr-un sat de pescari, este vanduta unei okiya pentru a fi initiata in artele gheiselor. Ritualurile seductiei sunt nenumarate, intr-o lume al carei esafodaj se sprijina pe culorile unui chimono, pe dezgolirea unei cefe pictate, pe licitarea virginitatii unei adolescente sau pe teserea unei intrigi de budoar. Sayuri, pe numele ei de gheisa, ajunge sa stapaneasca destine, sa detina secrete si sa construiasca un imperiu al erotismului ritualic.

The Price of Admission: How America's Ruling Class Buys Its Way Into Elite Colleges--And Who Gets Left Outside the Gates

Editura: Three Rivers Press (CA)

Anul aparitiei: 2007

In this explosive book, the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Daniel Golden exposes the corrupt admissions practices that favor the wealthy, the powerful, and the famous. Every spring thousands of middle-class and lower-income high-school seniors learn that they have been rejected by America's most exclusive colleges. What they may never learn is how many candidates like themselves have been passed over in favor of wealthy white students with lesser credentials--children of alumni, big donors, or celebrities. America, the so-called land of opportunity, is rapidly becoming an aristocracy in which America's richest families receive special access to elite higher education--enabling them to give their children even more of a head start. Based on two years of investigative reporting and hundreds of interviews with students, parents, school administrators, and admissions personnel--some of whom risked their jobs to speak to the author--in The Price of Admission, Golden names names, along with grades and test scores. He reveals how the sons of former vice president Al Gore, one-time Hollywood power broker Michael Ovitz, and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist leapt ahead of more deserving ...

Tales of a Female Nomad: Living at Large in the World

Editura: Broadway Books

Anul aparitiei: 2002

Rita Golden Gelman is an ordinary woman who is living an extraordinary existence. At the age of forty-eight, on the verge of a divorce, Rita left an elegant life in L.A. to follow her dream of travelling the world, connecting with people in cultures all over the globe. In 1986 Rita sold her possessions and became a nomad, living in a Zapotec village in Mexico, sleeping with sea lions on the Galapagos Islands, and residing everywhere from thatched huts to regal palaces. She has observed orangutans in the rain forest of Borneo, visited trance healers and dens of black magic, and cooked with women on fires all over the world. Rita's example encourages us all to dust off our dreams and rediscover the joy, the exuberance, and the hidden spirit that so many of us bury when we become adults.

Don't Play in the Sun: One Woman's Journey Through the Color Complex

Editura: Anchor Books

Anul aparitiei: 2005

"Don't play in the sun. You're going to have to get a light-skinned husband for the sake of your children as it is." In these words from her mother, novelist and memoirist Marita Golden learned as a girl that she was the wrong color. Her mother had absorbed "colorism" without thinking about it. But, as Golden shows in this provocative book, biases based on skin color persist-and so do their long-lasting repercussions. Golden recalls deciding against a distinguished black university because she didn't want to worry about whether she was light enough to be homecoming queen. A male friend bitterly remembers that he was teased about his girlfriend because she was too dark for him. Even now, when she attends a party full of accomplished black men and their wives, Golden wonders why those wives are all nearly white. From Halle Berry to Michael Jackson, from Nigeria to Cuba, from what she sees in the mirror to what she notices about the Grammys, Golden exposes the many facets of "colorism" and their effect on American culture. Part memoir, part cultural history, and part analysis, Don't Play in the Sun also dramatizes one accomplished black woman's inner journey from self-loathing to ...

Posting It: The Victorian Revolution in Letter Writing

Editura: University Press of Florida

Anul aparitiei: 2010

Although "snail mail" may seem old fashioned and outdated in the twenty-first century, Catherine Golden argues that the creation of the Penny Post in Victorian England was just as revolutionary in its time as e-mail and text messages are today. Until Queen Victoria instituted the Postal Reform Act of 1839, mail was a luxury affordable only by the rich. Allowing anyone, from any social class, to send a letter anywhere in the country for only a penny had multiple and profound cultural impacts. Golden demonstrates how cheap postage--which was quickly adopted in other countries--led to a postal "network" that can be viewed as a forerunner of computer-mediated communications. Indeed, the revolution in letter writing of the nineteenth century led to blackmail, frauds, unsolicited mass mailings, and junk mail--problems that remain with us today.
