Letterman: The Last Giant of Late Night by Jason Zinoman
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 2 MB
Overview: New York Times comedy critic Jason Zinoman delivers the definitive story of the life and artistic legacy of David Letterman, the greatest television talk show host of all time and the signature comedic voice of a generation.In a career spanning more than thirty years, David Letterman redefined the modern talk show with an ironic comic style that transcended traditional television. While he remains one of the most famous stars in America, he is a remote, even reclusive, figure whose career is widely misunderstood. In Letterman, Jason Zinoman, the first comedy critic in the history of the New York Times, mixes groundbreaking reporting with unprecedented access and probing critical analysis to explain the unique entertainer’s titanic legacy. Moving from his early days in Indiana to his retirement, Zinoman goes behind the scenes of Letterman’s television career to illuminate the origins of his revolutionary comedy, its overlooked influences, and how his work intersects with and reveals his famously eccentric personality.Zinoman argues that Letterman had three great artistic periods, each distinct and part of his evolution. As he examines key broadcasting moments—"Stupid Pet Tricks" and other captivating segments that defined Late Night with David Letterman—he illuminates Letterman’s relationship to his writers, and in particular, the show’s co-creator, Merrill Markoe, with whom Letterman shared a long professional and personal connection.To understand popular culture today, it’s necessary to understand David Letterman. With this revealing biography, Zinoman offers a perceptive analysis of the man and the artist whose ironic voice and caustic meta-humor was critical to an entire generation of comedians and viewers—and whose singular style ushered in new tropes that have become clichés in comedy today.

Download The Prisoners of Cabrera by Denis Smith (.PDF)

The Prisoners of Cabrera: Napoleon’s Forgotten Soldiers 1809-1814 by Denis Smith
Requirements: .PDF reader, 25 Mb
Overview: After their surrender at the Battle of Bailen, 12,000 French prisoners of war were exiled to the bleak island of Cabrera in the Mediterranean, eight miles from Majorca, with only the clothes on their backs, no shelter, insufficient fresh water, and no food supply other than the meager rations dropped off intermittently by the Spanish. By the time they were repatriated to France after Napoleon’s defeat five years later, their number had dwindled to 2,500. Never before told in English, the story of Cabrera is not only a riveting account of survival and the community formed by these men, but also an intriguing look at the politics of divided Spain during this period.

Download The Romanovs by Simon Sebag Montefiore (.ePUB)

The Romanovs: Russia’s Imperial Dynasty by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 21 Mb
Overview: The Romanovs ruled Russia as tsars and emperors for three hundred years. Through ruthless force of personality, this family of flawed but brilliant autocrats transformed a weak realm ruined by civil war into a supreme empire that dominated Europe. Peter the Great, the murderous drunken tyrant, physical giant and political reformer, and Catherine the Great, the passionate German princess who overthrew her own husband to become the outstanding stateswoman of a golden age, were Russia’s two greatest rulers. Elizaveta, who was as promiscuous as she was glamorous, continued Russia’s rise as a European power. The feckless, unbalanced Peter III and Paul I were both murdered in a system described as tyranny tempered by assassination. Nicholas I censored Pushkin, made himself Gendarme of Europe and fought the Crimean War with Britain. Ultimately, Nicholas II and Alexandra, despite their happy marriage and the tragedy of their haemophiliac son, proved too inept, cruel and deluded to save Russia from the Great War and revolution. This is the story of how Russia became the country we know today. Simon Sebag Montefiore shows that the rule of autocrats and their tiny court cliques have always dominated Russia’s history, from the first Romanov tsar in 1613 through the magnificence of Peter and Catherine and the bungling decline of Nicholas II, to the Red Tsars of Lenin and Stalin in the twentieth century and the authoritarian presidency of Putin in the twenty-first. A gripping narrative of pitiless intrigue and court conspiracy, THE ROMANOVS is a study of personality, policy and power.

Download The Big Lie by Dinesh D’Souza (.ePUB)

The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left by Dinesh D’Souza
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 1 MB
Overview: The explosive new book from Dinesh D’Souza, author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers, What is "the big lie" of the Democratic Party? That conservatives—and President Donald Trump in particular—are fascists. Nazis, even. In a typical comment, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow says the Trump era is reminiscent of "what it was like when Hitler first became chancellor."But in fact, this audacious lie is a complete inversion of the truth. Yes, there is a fascist threat in America—but that threat is from the Left and the Democratic Party. The Democratic left has an ideology virtually identical with fascism and routinely borrows tactics of intimidation and political terror from the Nazi Brownshirts.To cover up their insidious fascist agenda, Democrats loudly accuse President Trump and other Republicans of being Nazis—an obvious lie, considering the GOP has been fighting the Democrats over slavery, genocide, racism and fascism from the beginning.Now, finally, Dinesh D’Souza explodes the Left’s big lie. He expertly exonerates President Trump and his supporters, then uncovers the Democratic Left’s long, cozy relationship with Nazism: how the racist and genocidal acts of early Democrats inspired Adolf Hitler’s campaign of death; how fascist philosophers influenced the great 20th century lions of the American Left; and how today’s anti-free speech, anti-capitalist, anti-religious liberty, pro-violence Democratic Party is a frightening simulacrum of the Nazi Party.Hitler coined the term "the big lie" to describe a lie that "the great masses of the people" will fall for precisely because of how bold and monstrous the lie is. In The Big Lie, D’Souza shows that the Democratic Left’s orchestrated campaign to paint President Trump and conservatives as Nazis to cover up its own fascism is, in fact, the biggest lie of all.

Download Into the Black by Rowland White (.ePUB)

Into the Black: The Extraordinary Untold Story of the First Flight of the Space Shuttle Columbia and the Astronauts Who Flew Her by Rowland White
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3 MB
Overview: On 12th April 1981 a revolutionary new spacecraft blasted off from Florida on her maiden flight. NASA’s Space Shuttle Columbia was the most advanced flying machine ever built – the high watermark of post-war aviation development. A direct descendant of the record-breaking X-planes the likes of which Chuck Yeager had tested in the skies over the Mojave Desert, Columbia was a winged rocket plane, the size of an airliner, capable of flying to space and back before being made ready to fly again. She was the world’s first real spaceship.The Shuttle’s Commander, moonwalker John Young, was already a veteran of five spaceflights. Alongside him, Pilot Bob Crippen was making his first, but Crip, taken in by the space agency after the cancellation of a top secret military space station programme in 1969, had worked on the Shuttle’s development for a decade. Never before had a crew been so well prepared for their mission.Yet less than an hour after Young and Crippen’s spectacular departure from the Cape it was clear that all was not well. Tiles designed to protect Columbia from the blowtorch burn of re-entry were missing from the heatshield. If the damage to their ship was too great the astronauts would be unable to return safely to earth. But neither they nor mission control possessed any way of knowing.Instead, NASA turned to the National Reconnaissance Office, a spy agency hidden deep inside the Pentagon whose very existence was classified.Into the Black is a thrilling race against time; a gripping high stakes cold-war story, and a celebration of a beyond the state-of-the-art machine that, hailed as one of the seven new wonders of the world, rekindled our passion for spaceflight.

Download The Essential Tawfiq al-Hakim by Denys Johnson-Davies (.ePUB)+

The Essential Tawfiq al-Hakim: Plays, Fiction, Autobiography by Denys Johnson-Davies
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 3.5 Mb
Overview: The importance of Tawfiq al-Hakim (1898–1987) to the emergence of a modern Arabic literature is second only to that of Naguib Mahfouz. If the latter put the novel among the genres of writing that are now an accepted part of literary production in the Arab world today, Tawfiq al-Hakim is recognized as the undisputed creator of a literature of the theater.

In this volume, Tawfiq al-Hakim’s fame as a playwright is given prominence. Of the more than seventy plays he wrote, The Sultan’s Dilemma, dealing with a historical subject in an appealingly light-hearted manner, is perhaps the best known; it appears in the extended edition of Norton’s World Masterpieces and was broadcast on the old Home Service of the BBC. The other full-length play included here, The Tree Climber, is one that reveals al-Hakim’s openness to outside influences―in this case, the absurdist mode of writing. Of the two one-act plays in this collection, The Donkey Market shows his deftness at turning a traditional folk tale into a hilarious stage comedy.
