When Suzan Colón was laid off from her dream job at a magazine during the economic downturn of 2008, she needed to cut her budget way, way back, and that meant home cooking. Her mother suggested, "Why don't you look in Nana's recipe folder?" In the basement, Suzan found the tattered treasure, full of handwritten and meticulously typed recipes, peppered with her grandmother Matilda's commentary in the margins. Reading it, Suzan realized she had found something more than a collection of recipes - she had found the key to her family's survival through hard times.Suzan began re-creating Matilda's "sturdy food" recipes for baked pork chops and beef stew, and Aunt Nettie's clam chowder made with clams dug up by Suzan's grandfather Charlie in Long Island Sound. And she began uncovering the stories of her resilient family's past. Taking inspiration from stylish, indomitable Matilda, who was the sole support of her family as a teenager during the Great Depression (and who always answered "How are you?" with "Fabulous, never better!"), and from dashing, twice-widowed Charlie, Suzan starts to approach her own crisis with a sense of wonder and gratitude. It turns out that the gift to survive and thrive through hard times had been bred in her bones all along.Cherries in Winter is an irresistible gem of a book. It makes you want to cook, it makes you want to know your own family's stories, and, above all, it makes you feel rich no matter what. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Suzan Colon.

Amy Lowell Anew: A Biography , Hörbuch, Digital...

The controversial American poet Amy Lowell (1874-1925), a founding member of the Imagist group that included D. H. Lawrence and H. D., excelled as the impresario for the "new poetry" that became news across the U. S. in the years after World War I. Maligned by T. S. Eliot as the "demon saleswoman" of poetry, and ridiculed by Ezra Pound, Lowell has been treated by previous biographers as an obese, sex-starved, inferior poet who smoked cigars and made a spectacle of herself, canvassing the country on lecture tours that drew crowds in the hundreds for her electrifying performances. In fact, Lowell wrote some of the finest love lyrics of the 20th century and led a full and loving life with her constant companion, the retired actress Ada Russell. She was awarded the Pulitzer Prize posthumously in 1926. This provocative new biography, the first in 40 years, restores Amy Lowell to her full humanity in an era that, at last, is beginning to appreciate the contributions of gays and lesbians to American's cultural heritage. Drawing on newly discovered letters and papers, Rollyson's biography finally gives this vibrant poet her due. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Suzan Lynn Lorraine.

When the biggest villain in the country makes you an offer you can't refuse, what should you do? In my case, I decided to accept that offer, made by Mr. Vincent Vanzetti. Vanzetti hired me to find his missing daughter, Vittoria, while threatening reprisals should I fail in my task. While searching for Vittoria, I had to deal with the other members of the Vanzetti clan: Sherri, Vanzetti's second wife, at 22, the same age as Vittoria. Sherri was an "actress", a porn star with ambitions to appear on reality TV; Catrin, Vanzetti's granite-hard ex-wife, the power behind his criminal empire; and V.J. Parks, Vittoria's boyfriend, a boxer, a young man in his prime, in training for a shot at the world title. Meanwhile, closer to home, it was decision time for yours truly and my lover, Dr. Alan Storey. Alan was keen on marriage while I was still coming to terms with my past and years of physical abuse. Could I find the courage to finally lay the ghosts of my past and pledge my future to Alan? Family Honour, the story of a villain and his family, the story of a moral dilemma. Should I kill in the name of justice, or should I allow a villain to walk free? In answering that question I discovered a lot about myself and the person I longed to be. 1. Language: English.

Based on a true story by Hannah Howe, author of the Amazon number one Sam Smith Mystery series, Saving Grace, "the courtroom drama of the year."The Western Mail2 August 1876Sensation in the Charles Petrie Case!Listeners may recall that a young banker, by the name of Mr Charles Petrie, with every opportunity of succeeding in his profession, and commanding a not illiberal income, returned home after riding his horse to dine with his wife, Grace, and her companion, Mrs Quinn. During and after dinner he had nothing to excite him save the receipt of a letter which somewhat annoyed him, and that his wife consumed rather more wine than he considered to be good for her health. Immediately after retiring to his room, he was seized with symptoms of irritant poisoning, and despite every effort made on his behalf, he succumbed to its effects. An inquest was held, which vexed the minds of the Coroner’s jury to a degree without precedent in Coroners’ Inquest Law, and an open verdict was returned. However, the matter will not rest there, for after questions in Parliament, a second inquest has been called under suspicion that Mr Charles Petrie was murdered.Who poisoned Charles Petrie? Dr. James Collymore, a man familiar with poisons, a man harboring a dark secret that, if exposed, would ruin his career; Florrie, the maid who supplied Charles with his bedtime drink; Bert Kemp, a disgruntled groom, who used poisons in his work, who four months previously had predicted Charles’ dying day; Mrs Jennet Quinn, a lady’s companion with a deep knowledge of poisons, and a deep fear of dismissal; or Grace Petrie, Charles’ wife of four months, a woman with a scandalous past, a woman shunned by polite society.With crowds flocking to the courtroom and the shadow of suspicion falling upon Grace in the shape of the hangman’s noose, could dashing young advocate Daniel Morgan save her? 1.

Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, printed single-sided, grade: none, -, course: Organization behaviour, language: English, abstract: According to Suzan M, heartfield, Employee satisfaction is a terminology used to describe whether employees are happy and contented and fulfilling their desires and needs at work. Many measures purport that employee satisfaction is a factor in employee motivation, employee goal achievement, and positive employee morale in the workplace. Whereas job satisfaction is generally positive the organization's success, it can also be a downer if mediocre employees stay because they are satisfied with your work environment. Several factors including; treating employees with respect, providing regular employee recognition, empowering employees, offering above industry-average benefits and compensation, providing employee perks and company activities, and positive management within a success framework of goals, measurements, and expectations all contribute to an employee's level of satisfaction. Employee satisfaction is looked at in areas such as: management, understanding of mission and vision, empowerment, teamwork, communication, and coworker interaction.Some of the signs of lack of employee satisfaction are high levels of absenteeism and staff turnover and can affect the organization's bottom line, as recruitment and retraining take their toll. But few organizations have made job satisfaction a top priority, perhaps because they have failed to understand the significant opportunity that lies in front of them. Satisfied employees on the other hand tend to be more productive, creative and committed to their employers, and recent studies have shown a direct correlation between staff satisfaction and their performance. For example, employers who can create work environments that attract, motivate and retain hard-working individuals will be better positioned to succeed in a competitive environment that demands quality and cost-efficiency. In fact, employers may even discover that by creating a positive workplace for their employees, they increase their own job satisfaction as well.

Suzan, living totally isolated from the outside world after the tragedy she had been through, accepted this night job in Topkapi Palace, where she also lived. Taking a nap she suddenly leaped out in bed. Turning to her right, she got petrified when she saw a silhouette of an old-time pharaoh standing at her door. The man, as well as his clothes, were pale white from top to the bottom. The only make up applied on his mouth, nose and around his eyes were tend to be dark gray, and partly black. His eyes were dull and his gaze was fixed, his mouth curled up with a dry smile and he was waiting for being sure that Suzan had seen him. A ghost? An alien? This vision wasnt the only one she was going to face in the Topkapi Palace. A big nothing followed after the declarations of the media that Noahs Ark had been found in Turkey, as it had never been announced. The ark was found and, with it, a much more mysterious and important note signed with God. The note was pointing to the Palace, where His last warning been hidden. The many foreign agents now placed in the Palace with domestic traitorous cooperation made Suzan believe in no one. When this task become too complicated to handle it alone, she was forced to work with few people inside and outside, including Thomas, whom she knew as the most dangerous nemesis agent, starting from the very first day. Under incredibly hard conditions, the only remaining question was; how will they succeed in finding the last warning and survive while trying not to loose it against the dark organizations?

The Grotesque in Contemporary Anglophone Drama
88,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Following on from the work of art historians and literary and cultural theorists, this book examines the ways in which varieties of the grotesque function in the plays of Philip Ridley, Mark O’Rowe, Enda Walsh, Suzan-Lori Parks and Tim Crouch. The term ‘grotesque’ has been frequently applied in commentaries on some of the most exciting contemporary drama, without much further elucidation. By producing visions of an alienated world, engendering simultaneous attraction and repulsion, and often triggering laughter that comes with a chill in the spine, the grotesque attacks both aesthetic and social conventions and requires a creative use of the imagination on the part of the spectators. The book argues that as such, the grotesque in the works of the selected playwrights solicits profound audience engagement with urgent ethical, social and political issues. The inevitable openness caused by the grotesque demonstrates the authors’ faith in the deliberative powers of their audience, which stands in contrast to the ready-made choices offered by overtly committed political theatre.
