THE BRITISH BOOK INDUSTRY AWARDS NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR 2016 Whether you're a seasoned woodcutter, or your passion is yet to be kindled, NORWEGIAN WOOD is the perfect fireside read, and an ideal seasonal gift. Chopping and stacking wood is a pastime where the world makes sense once more. Because our relationship to fire is so ancient, so universal, it seems that in learning about wood, you can also learn about life. And who better to impart this wisdom than an expert from Scandinavia, where the extreme climate has obliged generations to hone and share their skills with tools, wood and heat production. Lars Mytting has distilled the wisdom of enthusiasts, from experienced lifelong growers, stackers and burners to researchers and professionals of combustion and tree culture. Part guide to the best practice in every aspect of working with this renewable energy source, part meditation on the human instinct for survival, this definitive handbook on the art of chopping, stacking and drying wood in the Scandinavian way has resonated across the world, with more than half a million copies sold worldwide. NORWEGIAN WOOD and THE NORWEGIAN WOOD ACTIVITY BOOK make the ultimate companion set.

Whether set along the picturesque coast of Norway or in its remote mountains and forests, architect Wenche Selmer's wooden cabins and houses blend effortlessly into their surroundings. Combining local building traditions with modern conveniences, her designs evoke Norway in all its rugged beauty and smart Scandinavian pragmatism. Just looking at these cabins is an invitation to sit down at the lovingly designed dining table for a hearty meal, or to curl up with a book on one of the inviting corner sofas while enjoying the panoramic view through large glass windows. These are houses that, while thoughtfully designed and beautifully crafted, were meant first and foremost to be lived in, and it is this accommodation of high design and livability that is partly responsible for their universal appeal. Norwegian Wood is the first book on the life and architecture of Wenche Selmer (19201998)one of the few women who gained prominence among European architects in the mid-twentieth century. Fourteen of her beautiful wooden cabins and houses are featured in detailed descriptions, plans, and a wealth of archival images and newly commissioned color photography. Whether you're planning to build your own vacation home, have always loved Scandinavian design or simply enjoy the warmth and sensuality of wooden architecture, you'll find plenty of inspiration here.

Con una nota dell'autore. *** «La costruzione della scrittura di Murakami è cosí impalpabile e squisita che ogni cosa egli scelga di descrivere vibra di potenzialità simbolica: una camicia stesa ad asciugare, dei ritagli di carta, un fermaglio a forma di farfalla». «The Guardian»

„I once had a girl / Or should I say, she once had me" John Lennon/Paul Mc Cartney Der Beatles-Ohrwurm „Norwegian Wood" ist für den siebenunddreißigjährigen Toru Watanabe ein melancholischer Song der Erinnerung: an den Aufruhr der Gefühle in einer schmerzvollen und schicksalhaften Jugend, die er zu bewahren und zu verstehen versucht. „Naokos Lächeln" erzählt lebendig und leidenschaftlich von einer Liebe mit Komplikationen in den unruhigen sechziger Jahren: Toru, der einsame, ernste Student der Theaterwissenschaft, begeistert von Literatur, Musik und wortlosen Sonntagsspaziergängen auf Tokios Straßen, erfährt früh, dass der Verlust von Menschen zum Leben und zum Drama des Erwachsenwerdens dazugehört. Der Jugendfreund Kizuki begeht Selbstmord, die geheimnisvoll anziehende Naoko verirrt sich in ihrer eigenen unerreichbaren Welt und Toru Watanabe muss sich zwischen ihr und der vor Lebenslust vibrierenden Midori entscheiden.

Mientras aterriza en un aeropuerto europeo, Toru Watanabe, un ejecutivo de 37 años, escucha una vieja canción de los Beatles que le hace retroceder a su juventud, al turbulento Tokio de los años sesenta. Con una mezcla de melancolía y desasosiego, Toru recuerda entonces a la inestable y misteriosa Naoko, la novia de su mejor y único amigo de la adolescencia, Kizuki. El suicidio de éste distanció a Toru y a Naoko durante un año, hasta que se reencontraron e iniciaron una relación íntima. Sin embargo, la aparición de otra mujer en la vida de Toru le lleva a experimentar el deslumbramiento y el desengaño allí donde todo debería cobrar sentido: el sexo, el amor y la muerte. Y ningún de los personajes parece capaz de alcanzar el frágil equilibrio entre las esperanzas juveniles y la necesidad de encontrar un lugar en el mundo.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Das Leben auf dem Land – packend und authentisch erzählt James Rebanks’ Familie lebt seit Generationen im englischen Hochland, dem Lake District. Die Lebensweise ist seit Jahrhunderten von den Jahreszeiten und Arbeitsabläufen bestimmt. Im Sommer werden die Schafe auf die kahlen Berge getrieben und das Heu geerntet; im Herbst folgen die Handelsmessen, wo die Herden aufgestockt werden, im Winter der Kampf, dass die Schafe am Leben bleiben, und im Frühjahr schließlich die Erleichterung, wenn die Lämmer geboren und die Tiere wieder in die Berge getrieben werden können. James Rebanks erzählt von einer archaischen Landschaft, von der tiefen Verwurzelung an einen Ort. In eindrucksvoll klarer Prosa schildert er den Jahresablauf in der Arbeit eines Hirten, bietet uns einen einzigartigen Einblick in das ländliche Leben. Er schreibt auch von den Menschen, die ihm nahe stehen, Menschen mit großer Beharrlichkeit, obwohl sich die Welt um sie herum vollständig verändert hat.
