Описание: It's official. That thing that classic art has been missing is a chubby reclining kitty. The Huffington Post Internet meme meets classical art in Svetlana Petrova's brilliant Fat Cat Art. Featuring her twenty-two-pound, ginger-colored cat Zarathustra superimposed onto some of the greatest artworks of all time, Petrova's paintings are an Internet sensation. Now fans will have the ultimate full-color collection of her work to savor for themselves or to give as a gift to fellow cat lovers. From competing with Venus's sexy reclining pose (and almost knocking her off her chaise lounge in the process) in Titian's Venus of Urbino, to exhibiting complete disdain as he skirts away from God's pointing finger in Michelangelo's Creation of Adam, Zarathustra single-handedly rewrites art history in the way that only an adorable fat cat can.

The award-winning author of Villa Air-Bel returns with a painstakingly researched, revelatory biography of Svetlana Stalin, a woman fated to live her life in the shadow of one of history's most monstrous dictators--her father, Josef Stalin.
Born in the early years of the Soviet Union, Svetlana Stalin spent her youth inside the walls of the Kremlin. Communist Party privilege protected her from the mass starvation and purges that haunted Russia, but she did not escape tragedy--the loss of everyone she loved, including her mother, two brothers, aunts and uncles, and a lover twice her age, deliberately exiled to Siberia by her father.
As she gradually learned about the extent of her father's brutality after his death, Svetlana could no longer keep quiet and in 1967 shocked the world by defecting to the United States--leaving her two children behind. But although she was never a part of her father's regime, she could not escape his legacy. Her life in America was fractured; she moved frequently, married disastrously, shunned other Russian exiles, and ultimately died in poverty in Wisconsin.
With access to KGB, CIA, and Soviet government archives, as well as the close cooperation of Svetlana's daughter, Rosemary Sullivan pieces together Svetlana's incredible life in a masterful account of unprecedented intimacy. Epic in scope, it's a revolutionary biography of a woman doomed to be a political prisoner of her father's name. Sullivan explores a complicated character in her broader context without ever losing sight of her powerfully human story, in the process opening a closed, brutal world that continues to fascinate us.
Описание: The magnum opus and latest work from Svetlana Alexievich, the 2015 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature a symphonic oral history about the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the emergence of a new Russia When the Swedish Academy awarded Svetlana Alexievich the Nobel Prize, it cited her for inventing a new kind of literary genre, describing her work as a history of emotions a history of the soul. Alexievich s distinctive documentary style, combining extended individual monologues with a collage of voices, records the stories of ordinary women and men who are rarely given the opportunity to speak, whose experiences are often lost in the official histories of the nation. In "Secondhand Time, " Alexievich chronicles the demise of communism. Everyday Russian citizens recount the past thirty years, showing us what life was like during the fall of the Soviet Union and what it s like to live in the new Russia left in its wake. Through interviews spanning 1991 to 2012, Alexievich takes us behind the propaganda and contrived media accounts, giving us a panoramic portrait of contemporary Russia and Russians who still carry memories of oppression, terror, famine, massacres but also of pride in their country, hope for the future, and a belief that everyone was working and fighting together to bring about a utopia. Here" "is an account of life in the aftermath of an idea so powerful it once dominated a third of the world. A magnificent tapestry of the sorrows and triumphs of the human spirit woven by a master, "Secondhand Time "tells the stories that together make up the true history of a nation. Through the voices of those who confided in her, "The Nation "writes, Alexievich tells us about human nature, about our dreams, our choices, about good and evil in a word, about ourselves. Praise for Svetlana Alexievich and "Secondhand Time" For her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time. Nobel Prize Committee For the past thirty or forty years Alexievich has] been busy mapping the Soviet and post-Soviet individual, but her work is] not really about a history of events. It s a history of emotions . . . a history of the soul. Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy "Secondhand Time" is Alexievich s] longest and most ambitious project to date: an effort to use an oral history of the nineties to understand Soviet and post-Soviet identity. "The New Yorker" In this spellbinding book, Svetlana Alexievich orchestrates a rich symphony of Russian voices telling their stories of love and death, joy and sorrow, as they try to make sense of the twentieth century, so tragic for their country. J. M. Coetzee Alexievich s] books are woven from hundreds of interviews, in a hybrid form of reportage and oral history that has the quality of a documentary film on paper. But Alexievich is anything but a simple recorder and transcriber of found voices; she has a writerly voice of her own which emerges from the chorus she assembles, with great style and authority, and she shapes her investigations of Soviet and post-Soviet life and death into epic dramatic chronicles as universally essential as Greek tragedies. . . . A mighty documentarian and a mighty artist. Philip Gourevitch Alexievich s voices are those of the people no one cares about, but the ones whose lives constitute the vast majority of what history actually is. Keith Gessen"
