Miss Leslie's Dolls

zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

A rare specimen from the more deranged end of the Grindhouse spectrum, Miss Leslie's Dolls is a memorably demented tale of possession and transvestitism from director Joseph G. Prieto (who, under the name Joseph P. Mawra, directed the outrageous 1965 lesbian sexploitation documentary Chained Girls). Believed lost for decades, it has been remastered from original film elements especially for this release. Stranded in the backwoods during a thunderstorm, a beautiful teacher and her three promiscuous students take refuge at a lonely house owned by the middle-aged Miss Leslie. Miss Leslie, however, is less a mild-mannered spinster and more an axe-wielding, homicidal cross-dresser intent on transferring his spirit into the nubile body of any girl foolish enough to come visiting...

A classic novel by John D. MacDonald with an exclusive introduction written and read by Dean Koontz. Once an ordinary math teacher, Omar Krepps developed a knack for gambling, amassed a fabulous fortune, and spent the rest of his life traveling the world and giving away his millions. Upon his death, however, Krepps bequeaths nothing to his nephew and only living blood relative, Kirby Winter - nothing, that is, except an antique watch and a sealed letter to be opened after one year. But Kirby has much more in his possession than he realizes. The watch has the power to manipulate time. Not only does this revelation shed light on the mystery of his uncle’s life, it puts Kirby on the path to unimaginable wealth and a new lease on love - as well as a whole host of deadly troubles. Even in a universe where time is no issue, Kirby must tread carefully to stay one step ahead of danger. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephen Hoye.

Mitch Albom creates his most unforgettable fictional character-Frankie Presto, the greatest guitarist to ever walk the earth-in this magical novel about the bands we join in life and the power of talent to change our lives. In his most stunning novel yet, the voice of Music narrates the tale of its most beloved disciple, young Frankie Presto, a war orphan raised by a blind music teacher in a small Spanish town. At nine years old, Frankie is sent to America in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar and six precious strings. But Frankie's talent is touched by the gods, and his amazing journey weaves him through the musical landscape of the 20th century, from classical to jazz to rock and roll, with his stunning talent affecting numerous stars along the way, including Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Carole King, Wynton Marsalis and even KISS. Frankie becomes a pop star himself. He makes records. He is adored. But his gift is also his burden, as he realizes, through his music, he can actually affect people's futures-with one string turning blue whenever a life is altered. At the height of his popularity, Frankie Presto vanishes. His legend grows. Only decades later, does he reappear-just before his spectacular death-to change one last life. With its Forest Gump-like romp through the music world, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto is a classic in the making. A lifelong musician himself, Mitch Albom delivers a remarkable novel, infused with the message that "everyone joins a band in this life" and those connections change us all.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

When her father dies and leaves her completely destitute, Marion can think of only one thing to do - make a new life for herself. Commencing a life of duplicity, Marion transforms herself into Mary Wood - governess. In possession of a forged letter of recommendation and cloaked in the anonymity of her new identity, she enters a life of self-imposed servitude as teacher and caretaker of young Miss Caroline Jonquil of Farland Meadows. Her idyllic daydream vision of life at the Meadows is dashed when she finds a child desperately in need of hope and a cold and sorrowful home haunted by the past. With her characteristic sunny disposition, Marion casts her spell upon the household and slowly brings to life the long-forgotten joy of those within. Layton Jonquil is a man tormented by the lies surrounding the death of his late wife, but he cannot deny his growing attraction for the beautiful governess whose goodness and optimism have touched his dormant heart. Their connection grows ever stronger, and despite the impropriety of harboring feelings for a servant, Layton's heart whispers that this is the woman he's destined to love. But when Layton's fears about the past become too much to bear and the falsehoods in which they are entangled threaten to shatter his and Marion's blossoming attachment, will true love conquer all? 1.

The Archer takes you on a mystifying journey of one man's travels, permitting you to look into his world and his way of the bow. The Archer has no home to call his own as he travels the world alone. He takes one small suitcase and a long sleeve in which he carries his most prized possession. A once successful architect, the Archer is taken to the brink of ruin only to rise again, committing himself to a new way of life, as he learns about China and the mystical mountains of Wudang, where his past and present meet. Haunting dreams reveal secrets from sixth-century China. Lilian, his lost love, assists him in finding the missing pieces of a past life. Drawn to live by the Tao Te Ching and the flowing movements of Taijiquan he embraces the simplicity of life. He has no desire for material things and needs nothing other than what God puts before him. A disciplined teacher and guide, he changes the souls of children along his way and allows a brief glimpse into the window of his soul. With a click of the mouse, I came to find Armin Hirmer, the Archer, within the confines of my modern silver machine. Certainly, it was not by chance, but a universal vibration radiating and my ability as an intuitive to capture what was revealed to my eyes. His photography mesmerized me, revealing a million oceans rippling the spirit within him. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carol Choomack, Armin Hirmer, Jerry Kristafer.

Understanding Literature and Life: Drama, Poetr...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The major texts of Western culture are a gateway to wisdom that can widen your views on self and society in enduring ways. The extraordinary body of literature given us by writers from antiquity to the present day, as Professor Weinstein notes, "is potent stuff, serving not only as transcription of history but also as a verbal Pandora's box, capable of shedding light on those transactions which remain in the dark for many of us: love, death, fear, desire. We are talking about more than artful language; we are talking about the life of the past and the life of the world." It is truly a monumental legacy. And now you can examine its most important works - whether drama, poetry, or narrative - in this series of 64 penetrating lectures that reveal astonishing common ground. You'll see how this award-winning teacher uses several different analytical perspectives, including Feminism, Marxism, Freudianism, Deconstruction, Postmodernism, and New Historicism, to give us fresh insight into persisting human themes like rites of passage; the "fit" or "misfit" between self and society; the creation of an identity; and the play, weight, and presence of the past in understanding our present. You learn how drama makes visible the conflicts and wars of culture in ways other forms cannot manage. How poetry can go to the heart of human existence with a purity and power akin to surgery, bidding us to challenge and change the way we usually do business. And how narrative can tell life stories in ways that enable a possession of that life that is hardly imaginable any other way. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Arnold Weinstein.

The Art and Science of Personal Magnetism , Hör...

I take pleasure in presenting to many American students who will acquire possession of this book these practical lessons on the art and science of personal magnetism. These chapters contain the gist of the lessons taught be me in classes and to individuals in my courses of personal instruction conducted by me, here in Paris, for the past 18 years. In my personal class work, of course, I adapt the instruction to the special requirements of my individual students, which I cannot do in the case of general lessons. But, notwithstanding this, I feel that I have condensed the essence of my methods and principles of practice so that any student of average intelligence may readily grasp, assimilate, and apply the same with success, at least. I feel that if the student does not accomplish this, it will be his or her own fault, not that of myself. In introducing this book, I wish to express my obligations to Mr. L. N. D., an American student of mine here in Paris who has kindly transformed my rather stilted “guidebook English” into the plain, simple form desirable for a book designed for the general public. I feel particularly indebted to him for supplying the idiomatic American “man on the street” terms, thus reproducing the conversational style I use in all my lessons in French, but which my “book English” rendered impossible in this case without the kindly assistance of this worthy gentleman. With hand on heart, I send to my new American audience the sincere regards and most earnest wishes for success, of Their solicitous teacher, Theron Q. Dumont - Paris, France, August 26, 1913 1.
