Biography of fight promoter Don King follows his rise from a street goon convicted of strong arm tactics to a minor music promoter to pulling off his first major fight with Muhammed Ali for a charity. Ving Rhames' characterization gives a fully three dimensional person with warts and all, but still makes it understandable how he became the affluent promoter he has become.

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…

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.

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.
