Mickalene, Thomas

Mickalene Thomas / [Roxane Gay; Kellie Jones; Mickalene Thomas]

London ; New York : Phaidon, 2022

Abstract: Negli ultimi venti anni, il corpus delle opere di Mickalene Thomas si è ampliato fino a includere pittura, collage, fotografia, video e installazioni immersive, diventate ormai suo segno distintivo. Attingendo a molteplici fonti d'ispirazione, che spaziano dalla pittura del XIX secolo alla cultura pop, Thomas dà vita a un potente linguaggio artistico apprezzato dalla critica per la capacità di esprimere un'idea complessa di aspirazioni e visione di sé attraverso genere e razza, ampliando e sovvertendo i canoni di bellezza, sessualità e fama. Realizzato in stretta collaborazione con l'artista, il volume investiga per la prima volta la vastità della sua straordinaria carriera.

Un cucchiaio intagliato / Jayne Davis ; traduzione di Lucia Paltera ; illustrazioni di Moreno Paissan

Bari : Vintage, 2021

Abstract: Galles, 1817. Dopo aver rifiutato ogni proposta di matrimonio che le è stata fatta, Isolde Farrington, Izzy per tutti, viene spedita in Galles dalla zia come punizione, volendo il padre darle un assaggio della vita da zitella, con una misera rendita e nessun membro della servitù ad aiutarla. Quando Izzy arriva, scopre, con sua grande sorpresa, che sua zia Genie è sposata con un uomo di mestiere, chiaramente non approvato dalla famiglia di lei, ma che nonostante la situazione economica persino più limitata di quella di Izzy, vive una vita dignitosa e, soprattutto, soddisfacente e felice, prendendo parte al lavoro del marito. Rhys Williams, si trova in Galles per affari e durante il suo primo incontro con Izzy, questa lo scambia per un servitore. Il nuovo ambiente di Izzy le fa guardare la vita con occhi nuovi e non ci vorrà molto prima che guardi con un nuovo sguardo anche Rhys. Quando suo padre, però, scopre che la situazione in Galles è ben diversa da quella che pensava e che Rhys è nel commercio, si apre un abisso per una coppia che ha imparato ad amarsi oltre ogni diseguaglianza. Riuscirà la differenza di classe a tenerli separati?

A slow fire burning / Paula Hawkins

London : Doubleday, [2021]

Abstract: Years ago someone lit a match... Laura has spent most of her life being judged. She's seen as hot-tempered, troubled, a loner. Some even call her dangerous. Miriam knows that just because Laura is witnessed leaving the scene of a horrific murder with blood on her clothes doesn't mean Laura is a killer. Bitter experience has taught her how easy it is to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Carla is reeling from the brutal murder of her nephew. She trusts no one and no thing: good people are capable of terrible deeds. But how far will she go to find peace? Innocent or guilty, everyone is carrying damage. Some are damaged enough to kill. Look what you started.

Most children spend between five and seven hours a day looking at some form of screen ? and most grown-ups spend twice as much time.

Inventive and irreverent, this book is the perfect companion for humdrum days and wet weekends. It is a compendium of the world?s strangest, silliest and most stimulating activities.

Dutch and Flemish Literature as World Literature / edited by Theo D'haen

[S.l.] : Bloomsbury, 2021

Abstract: The recent return of 'world literature' to the centre of literary studies has entailed an increased attention to non-European literatures, but in turn has also further marginalized Europe's smaller literatures. Dutch and Flemish Literature as World Literature shows how Dutch-language literature, from its very beginnings in the Middle Ages to the present, has not only always taken its cue from the 'major' literary traditions of Europe and beyond, but has also actively contributed to and influenced these traditions. The contributors to this book focus on key works and authors, providing a concise, yet highly readable, history of Dutch-language literature and demonstrating how this literature is anchored in world literature.

Drawing as therapy: know yourself through art

London : The school of life press, 2021

Abstract: A practical guide outlining the benefits of drawing as a therapeutic practice followed by 80 guided drawing exercises as an aid to self-understanding and fulfillment. When we’re young, all of us draw; as we grow older, most of us stop. We come to see drawing not as a type of play, but as a craft or skill; one that we can do either well or (more usually) badly. But to see drawing in this way is to deny ourselves one of life’s great pleasures, and to miss out on its profound psychological benefits. By allowing us to express ourselves creatively, and capture our thoughts and ideas on paper, drawing can be a form of therapy. Drawing as Therapy is a collection of playful creative prompts and exercises that introduce us to the curative powers of drawing. Divided into eight chapters, they invite us to reflect on different aspects of our life and psyche – our personality, moods, memories and passions – by attempting to render them through art. In so doing, they can help us to discover hidden byways of our minds, find new perspectives on our difficulties, summon a state of calm and begin a process of self-recovery and healing. The exercises won’t teach you how to draw. Instead, they will teach you an entirely new way of thinking about drawing, where there is no such thing as failure or success, only self-discovery and, in the best sense, play.

Mind & body: physical exercises for mental wellbeing, mental exercises for physical wellbeing

London : The school of life, 2021

Abstract: A practical and playful guide to balancing and maintaining physical and mental harmony. The modern world can present the body as a machine that just needs to be regularly exercised. However, it is a remarkably sensitive organ in which a lot of our pain and hope is stored and that we need to interpret and handle with subtlety. This impact of our body upon our mind is something that needs to be explored as it is easy to pay attention to one more than the other and to ignore the crucial balance between the two. This is a book filled with reflections and exercises designed to help us live more harmoniously and maturely within both mind and body. It gives guidance on how to calm our minds with bodily exercises that work on the real sources of our anxieties. It suggests how to be less rigid in, and timid about, our bodies and how to relax into them in a way we might not have done for far too long. It offers ideas on how to accept the way we look, and how to treat the body in order for it to assist the mind in yielding its very best ideas. The impacts of activities such as singing, dancing and art are explored along with the liberation of spirit that these might offer. This is a book, both theoretical and practical, that will improve our relationship between our physical and mental selves and allow us a route to a life of greater self-assurance, wisdom and freedom to be ourselves.

Varieties of Melancholy : a hopefull guide

London : The school of life, 2021

Abstract: An insightful and consoling guide to the melancholic state of mind. This is a book that celebrates the most neglected but valuable emotion we can feel: melancholy. Melancholy isn’t depression or anger or bitterness, it’s a serene, accepting, gentle, wise and kindly response to the difficulties and occasional misery of being alive. It steers an ideal mid-way course between despair on the one hand and naïve optimism on the other. But melancholy is a well-kept secret. Those who feel the pull of melancholy moods tend to stay quiet about their tastes. We don’t often hear melancholy being celebrated or accorded the respect that it deserves. Melancholy languishes unexplored in a hyper-competitive, noisy, frantic age. And yet the emotion heartily deserves exploration, it is one that leads to reflection and thoughtfulness. This book carefully collects and interprets a selection of the most universally recognisable melancholy states of mind, and thereby renders us less confused by our precious yet elusive feelings. We hear, among other things, about the melancholy of Sunday evenings and the melancholy of adolescence, the melancholy of high summer and the melancholy of crushes.

How to find the right words : a guide to delivering life's most awkward messages

[S.l.] : The school of life press, 2021

Abstract: Life constantly requires us to give other people some hugely awkward messages: that we don’t love them anymore; that we do love them (though we’re not meant to); that they smell a bit; that they’re fired; that we’re furious with them (though we adore them) or that their music is too loud... Often, out of embarrassment, we just stay quiet. Occasionally we explode. And typically, we stumble about, looking for the right words – dreading that we didn’t find them and thereby causing more hurt than we should. This is a book to help us locate the best possible words to get across a range of life’s most difficult messages. With twenty case studies drawn from relationships, friendships, work, our families and service situations, we are gently shown what we might – in an ideal world – find ourselves saying to make our intentions known while causing minimal harm. We are guided, among other topics, to how best to end a relationship, how to make it up with a child and how gently to let down a friend who wants more. We laugh, we recognise our troubles – and we’re introduced to a range of deeply empathetic ways to navigate some of our most acute social dilemmas.

The Good Enough Parent: How to raise contented, interesting and resilient children / The School of Life

[S.l.] : The School of Life Press, 2021

Abstract: Raising a child to be an authentic and mentally robust adult is one of life’s great challenges. It is also, fortunately, not a matter of luck. There are many things to understand about how children’s minds operate and what they need from those who look after them so they can develop into the best version of themselves. The Good Enough Parent is a compendium of lessons, including ideas on how to say ‘no’ to a child one adores, how to look beneath the surface of ‘bad’ behaviour to work out what might really be going on, how to encourage a child to be genuinely kind, how to encourage open self-expression, and how to handle the moods and gloom of adolescence. Importantly, this is a book that knows that perfection is not required – and could indeed be unhelpful, because a key job of any parent is to induct a child gently into the imperfect nature of everything. Written in a tone that is encouraging, wry and soaked in years of experience, The Good Enough Parent is an intelligent guide to raising a child who will one day look back on their childhood with just the right mixture of gratitude, humour and love.
