Flying over an olive grove

Author: Clive Nicholson
Publisher: epubli
ISBN: 9783745064827
Release Date: 2017-04-27
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Flying Over An Olive Grove is the first great working-class football story. Born at a unique moment in the history of the beautiful game, Fred Spiksley was amongst a new wave of teenagers who from 1885 onwards could aspire to be a professional footballer and dodge the inevitability of industrial labour. He became the first player to score a hat-trick against Scotland and in 1896 he guided Sheffield Wednesday to FA Cup glory with 4 goals and 8 assists during the cup run. His first goal in the final is considered by some to be the fastest ever goal in FA Cup final history. At his peak he was the fastest winger in England and possessed total ball control. He was a player with such ability that he was able to take his club and country to the pinnacle of football during an era where his slender frame did not suit the rough treatment that was often meted out to him. With Fred Spiksley on the field no match was ever lost. Even with two broken ribs, he had the pluck and tenacity to remain on the field and score the winning goal in an epic FA Cup tie at Olive Grove, the ground where he made his name; 'the Olive Grove Flyer'. He scored over 300 career goals and won every major honour in the game, and holds the record for the highest goals-to-game ratio of any winger in the history of English football. His fame extended around the World as he became the first professional footballer to coach across three continents. In Europe he managed the Swedish national team and guided 1FC Nuremberg to the German Championship in 1927.

Der Tag der Heuschrecke

Author: Nathanael West
Publisher: Manesse Verlag
ISBN: 9783641118785
Release Date: 2013-09-16
Genre: Fiction

Wiederentdeckung eines US-amerikanischen Kultautors Hollywood: nirgends gedeihen Illusionen prächtiger, nirgends werden sie rascher entsorgt. Hauptsache, die Show geht weiter. Dieser Roman ist eine herrlich respektlose Nahaufnahme der Traumfabrik, eine filmreife Parodie auf Starkult und kollektiven Selbstbetrug. Keiner hat das wahre Hollywood mit seinen Widersprüchen, Abgründen und Hell-Dunkel-Kontrasten schärfer erfasst als Nathanael West. In seiner Satire widmet er sich den Schattenseiten einer durch und durch künstlichen Welt, in der die Verlierer in der Überzahl sind: die ewigen Statisten, Sternchen, Schmalspurdiven und Reservehelden. Je zweifelhafter deren Aussicht auf das große Los, desto verbissener hängen sie ihren Illusionen nach – und überbieten sich in einer Parade der Peinlichkeiten und Selbstentblößungen. Einmal mehr besticht Nathanael West hier mit der hohen Kunst der Zuspitzung. Schonungslos bis zum Zynismus legt er das Urkomische im Tragischen frei und entlarvt seine Figuren als hoffnungslose Träumer, ohne sie dabei zu diffamieren. Wunsch und Wirklichkeit mögen noch so weit auseinanderklaffen, menschliche Sehnsüchte sind einfach nicht totzukriegen. So ist dieses Buch eine Demaskierung des neuzeitlichen Wahns, um jeden Preis ein Star werden zu müssen, und ein tiefer Seufzer angesichts evidenter Aussichtslosigkeit. Neuübersetzung

The Title

Author: Scott Murray
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 9781472936622
Release Date: 2017-09-07
Genre: Sports & Recreation

Some folk will tell you the FA Premier League is the greatest show on earth. They may even have a point. But to build something so successful, so popular, so inescapable, you've got to have mighty strong foundations. Prior to 1992, the old First Division was England's premier prize. Its rich tapestry winds back to 1888 and the formation of the Football League. A grand century-long tradition in danger of being lost in the wake of Premier League year zero. No more! In The Title Scott Murray tells the lively, cherry-picked story of English football through the prism of the First Division. Rich with humour yet underpinned with solid research, this is a glorious meander across our national sport's varied terrain. With as much about Burnley, Wolves, West Brom and Portsmouth as the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United, we learn the less well-known stories the sport has to tell, such as the plight of Glossop, the smallest club to ever play top-flight football, and final day drama involving Huddersfield and Cardiff that knocks Michael Thomas into a cocked hat. We bask in the managerial genius of Tom Watson, the bowler-hatted Victorian Mourinho; celebrate the joy of the Busby Babes; discover the shameless showmanship of George Allison; embark on righteous escapades with Hughie Gallacher; and meet some old favourites in Don Revie, Bill Shankly, Alex Ferguson and Brian Clough. At turns exciting, surprising, witty and bittersweet, The Title is a highly informed, fresh and affectionate love-letter to the English game, and a delight for any football fan.

Genre: Fiction

Sie spielt Scrabble, signiert 1000 Bücher in einem Rutsch, liebt Katzen und Kirchen, besucht Gärten, Freunde und Familie, kann nicht Auto fahren und recherchiert morbide Morde: P.D. James erzählt locker und assoziativ von ihrem Alltag, gibt Einblicke in den Prozess des Schreibens, schildert Reisen. Sie macht sich Gedanken über das Älterwerden und die Macht der Disziplin, erinnert sich an Jugend und Krieg. P.D. James hat zwei Kinder großgezogen und immer gearbeitet. 1991 wurde sie geadelt. Mit Raffinesse, Common Sense und Diskretion blickt sie auf ein im Alter geordnetes, erfülltes Leben zurück - kontrolliert, aber lebendig und ungezwungen zugleich - very british, very good. „Dieses feinfühlige/diskrete Tagebuch kann man nicht aus der Hand legen. Es ist sehr menschlich, sehr charakteristisch.“ The Times
