Christmas in America: A History by Penne L. Restad

The manger or Macy's? Americans might well wonder which is the real shrine of Christmas, as they take part each year in a mix of churchgoing, shopping, and family togetherness. But the history of Christmas cannot be summed up so easily as the commercialization of a sacred day. As Penne Restad reveals in this marvelous new book, it has always been an ambiguous meld of sacred thoughts and worldly actions– as well as a fascinating reflection of our changing society.

It wouldn't be Christmas without the "things." How they came to mean so much, and to play such a prominent role in America's central holiday, is the tale told in this delightful and edifying book. In a style characteristically engaging and erudite, Karal Ann Marling, one of our most trenchant observers of American culture, describes the outsize spectacle that Christmas has become, showing us the provenance and significance of each of its essential parts: the decorated trees and holiday lights, the cards and gifts and wrapping papers, the toy villages and store displays and Macy's holiday parade, Bing Crosby and Santa Claus.

La felicità in America. Storie, ballate, leggende degli Stati Uniti a uso di giovani, vecchi, ostili ed entusiasti - Enrico Deaglio
Italian | 2013 | 254 Pages | ISBN: 8807172658 | EPUB | 2.41 MB

Nel 1983, per seguire il presidente della Repubblica Sandro Pertini in visita ufficiale, Enrico Deaglio chiede il suo primo visto di entrata negli Stati Uniti: da allora visitatore assiduo, oggi è un "permanent resident" a San Francisco. "Questo libro è il risultato di trent'anni di viaggi e soggiorni di un giornalista privilegiato, perché non aveva particolari obblighi noiosi, non era tormentato dal bisogno ('Mamma mia dammi cento lire che in America voglio andar'), non doveva scegliere tra 'tu vuo' fa' l'americano' e 'yankee go home' e si poteva permettere di giocare all'eterno studente degli usi e costumi locali…

Viaggio in America - Oriana Fallaci
Italian | 2015 | 311 Pages | ISBN: 8817083364 | EPUB | 2.09 MB

Il suo primo viaggio a New York risale al 1955, dieci anni dopo Oriana Fallaci decide di trasferirsi lì e con un tono lieve e brillante racconta per "L'Europeo" la vita quotidiana di una donna in un mondo dove le dimensioni delle cose acquistano a volte un aspetto mostruoso per chi è abituato a usare il metro italiano. Insieme alle tante facce della città, si alternano gli straordinari ritratti di attori e divi descritti sempre con uno sguardo disincantato e fresco. Ad accompagnarla c'è Shirley MacLaine, con cui progetta anche di rifare all'inverso la strada degli antichi pionieri che si mossero dalla Virginia e arrivarono in California…

Genre: Comedy

In this hysterical satire of Reagan-era values, written and directed by Albert Brooks, a successful Los Angeles advertising executive (Brooks) and his wife (Julie Hagerty) decide to quit their jobs, buy a Winnebago, and follow their Easy Rider fantasies of freedom and the open road. When a stop in Las Vegas nearly derails their plans, they’re forced to come to terms with their own limitations and those of the American dream. Brooks’s barbed wit and confident direction drive Lost in America, an iconic example of his restless comedies about insecure characters searching for satisfaction in the modern world that established his unique comic voice and transformed the art of observational humor.
