Steven Patrick Morrissey was born in Manchester on May 22nd 1959. Singer-songwriter and co-founder of the Smiths (1982-1987), Morrissey has been a solo artist for twenty-six years, during which time he has had three number 1 albums in England in three different decades.

Achieving eleven Top 10 albums (plus nine with the Smiths), his songs have been recorded by David Bowie, Nancy Sinatra, Marianne Faithfull, Chrissie Hynde, Thelma Houston, My Chemical Romance and Christy Moore, amongst others.

An animal protectionist, in 2006 Morrissey was voted the second greatest living British icon by viewers of the BBC, losing out to Sir David Attenborough. In 2007 Morrissey was voted the greatest northern male, past or present, in a nationwide newspaper poll. In 2012, Morrissey was awarded the Keys to the City of Tel-Aviv.

It has been said 'Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status that Morrissey has reached in his lifetime.'

Forget Dawkins or Hitchens, this is a refreshingly unbiased non-believer's account of WHAT humans have believed across the ages, and WHY.

What first prompted prehistoric man, sheltering in the shadows of deep caves, to call upon the realm of the spirits?

And why has belief thrived ever since, leading us to invent heaven and hell, sin and redemption, and above all, gods?

Religion reflects our deepest hopes and fears; whether you are a believer or, like Matthew Kneale, a non-believer who admires mankind's capacity to create and to imagine, it has shaped our world. And as our dreams and nightmares have changed over the millennia, so have our beliefs - from shamans to Aztec priests, from Buddhists to Christians: the gods we created have evolved with us.

Belief is humanity's most epic invention. It has always been our closest companion and greatest consolation. To understand it is to better understand ourselves.

Literacka nagroda Nobla w 2013 r. została przyznana przez Akademię Szwedzką Alice Munro "mistrzyni krótkiej formy literackiej" (z ang. "master of the contemporary short story"). 

Alice Ann Munro (ur. 10 lipca 1931 roku jako Alice Ann Laidlaw w Wingham, Ontario) - kanadyjska pisarka, autorka głównie opowiadań. Po polsku ukazało się kilka jej książek: m.in. "Taniec szczęśliwych cieni", "Kocha, lubi, szanuje...", "Uciekinierka", "Widok z Castle Rock", "Zbyt wiele szczęścia"

Uważana za jedną z najlepszych współczesnych autorek krótkich form prozatorskich. Jej opowiadania skupiają się na relacjach międzyludzkich w codziennym życiu. Akcja większości jej prozy osadzona jest w południowo-zachodniej części stanu Ontario i często obraca się wokół z pozoru trywialnych i codziennych faktów i obserwacji otaczającej rzeczywistości. Bohaterzy tych opowiadań (na ogół kobiety) to antyteza literackiej heroiczności.

W 2009 r. przyznano jej prestiżową Międzynarodową Nagrodę Bookera za całokształt twórczości literackiej. (PAP)

Zapraszamy do zamawiania maszynopisów książki "TALK ABOUT A DREAM: The Essential Interviews of Bruce Springsteen". 

Bruce Springsteen loves to talk. His peformances include stage banter and stories, and his lyric sheets are packed with words. He always has something to say, about his work, his politics, and his version of what America means. And much has been written about the Boss. Fans can hope that some day Bruce will put his story into a memoir, but for now, the best of Springsteen's own words are collected here in Talk About a Dream.

Collecting nearly thirty interviews, from the very beginnings of his career in 1973 to his induction in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in 2012, this volume captures Springsteen's remarkable talent for taking interviews as seriously as he takes his music. These conversations chart his development as a musician and a public figure, and shed light on everything from the meanings of his lyrics to his 40 year career as a rock dynamo. Masterfully introduced and curated by Springsteen experts Phillips and Masur, this book will be the definitive collection of interviews with the Boss for decades to come.

 

"There have been other collections of Springsteen interviews, but this excellent volume is the most up-to-date…"

 

"What is most significant about the anthology is the change in Springsteen himself as he matures from a shy and inarticulate leader of a Jersey Shore bar band to the loquacious and intelligent observer of the human condition that he is today. It is a remarkable transformation and Phillips, the editor and publisher of the Springsteen magazine, Backstreets, and Masur, author of Runaway Dream: Born to Run and Bruce Springsteen’s American Vision (2010), have lovingly put it all together in one amazing volume. A worthy edition to the Springsteen literary canon."

- Starred Booklist review
