Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami Summary

When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire - to a time when an impetuous young woman called Midori marches into his life and he has to choose between the future and the past. ** Murakami’s new novel is coming ** COLORLESS TSUKURU TAZAKI AND HIS YEARS OF PILGRIMAGE 'The reason why death had such a hold on Tsukuru Tazaki was clear.

Norwegian Wood by Elisabeth Tostrup Summary

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.

Tokio blues. Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami Summary

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.

Sgt. Pepper and the Beatles by Dr Olivier Julien Summary

The first concept album in the history of popular music, the soundtrack of the Summer of Love or 'Hippy Symphony No. 1': Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is first and foremost the album that gave rise to 'hopes of progress in pop music' (The Times, 29 May 1967). Sgt. Pepper and the Beatles commemorates the fortieth anniversary of this masterpiece of British psychedelia by addressing issues that will help put the record in perspective. These issues include: reception by rock critics and musicians, the cover, lyrics, songwriting, formal unity, the influence of non-European music and art music, connections with psychedelia and, more generally, the sociocultural context of the 1960s, production, sound engineering and musicological significance. The contributors are world renowned for their work on the Beatles: they examine Sgt. Pepper from the angle of disciplines such as musicology, ethnomusicology, history, sociology, literature, social psychology and cultural theory.

Tòquio blues by Haruki Murakami Summary

Considerada el clàssic modern per excel·lència de la literatura japonesa, i amb èxit aclaparador arreu del món, Tòquio blues narra l'educació sentimental d'un jove estudiant al Tòquio dels anys seixanta. Introvertit, tímid i seriós, Toru Watanabe s'enamora perdudament de Naoko, una noia continguda i impenetrable, i pateix una crisi postadolescent que el porta a l'aïllament social i a la reclusió. Per sortir-ne, i davant les dificultats de la seva relació amb la Naoko, Toru es llança a un espiral de sexe esporàdic i un dia coneix la Midori, una noia vital, exuberant i plena de vida que revolucionarà el seu món ordenat i tranquil.Tendra, escrita amb to melancòlic i sensual i amb un ritme molt àgil, Tòquio blues és una novel·la rodona i plena d'humor que beu de Salinger, Sylvia Plath i Harper Lee. Amb el Japó contemporani com a teló de fons, i ple d'influències occidentals, Haruki Murakami ens narra, amb una encertada i equilibrada mescla de malenconia i sentit de l'humor, les angoixes adolescents, el desengany del primer amor, la reclusió en un mateix i el trànsit a l'edat adulta."La construcció narrativa de Murakami és exquisida i subtil; tot el que descriu està ple de possibibles significats simbòlics: una camisa estesa al sol, trossos de retalls de paper, un passador de cabell en forma de papallona (...). Malgrat la malenconia metafísica, Tòquio blues també té tots els elements de les millors comèdies", Steven Poole, The Guardian."En aquesta senzilla i trista història d'amor -una història que hauria de garantir a Murakami un nombre de lectors tan ampli com els que té al Japó- hi ha un fascinant retrat de "l'estiu de l'amor" a la japonesa", Jonathan Levi, The Los Angeles Times."L'entrada de Murakami en el camp de la realitat és fascinant i emotiva, i molt encertada. Acosegueix refrenar les seves tendències cap a l'exuberància de la mateixa manera que els seus personatges aconsegueixen reprimir les forces que els governen al seu voltant", Paul Quinn, Times Literary Supplement.

Norwegian wood by Lars Mytting Summary

*** Il bestseller internazionale che scalda l'anima. Un caso editoriale da oltre mezzo milione di copie. *** In un mondo sempre più veloce e metropolitano, tra cemento e smartphone, fermarsi a contemplare e praticare l’antica arte del legno può essere un’inattesa via di salvezza. Il norvegese Lars Mytting ci racconta passo passo come si scelgono gli alberi, come si tagliano, come si accatasta la legna e come la si mette da parte per farla asciugare e poi, alla fine, bruciare. Ma mentre ci parla di taglialegna, di motoseghe e di camini, quello che poteva sembrare un semplice manuale pratico diventa una meditazione sull’istinto di sopravvivenza e sul rapporto tra uomo e natura, fatto di tempi lunghi e silenzi. Una lezione di vita, pragmatica e spirituale al tempo stesso, che poteva provenire solo dalle fredde terre scandinave, dove gli uomini da secoli si tramandano le tecniche e le abilità necessarie alla lavorazione del legno ma anche la pazienza e il rispetto nei confronti delle foreste, di quegli alberi che consentono di costruire le case e riscaldarle col fuoco. «Il motto di Mytting, che è un po’ il cuore del suo scrivere, suona così: incidere sulla qualità della giornata, ecco la più sublime delle arti... Deciso, forte e sereno. Lui è il vero signore del legno» - Marco Belpoliti, La Repubblica «A mano a mano che si procede nella lettura, si capisce il successo di questo libro: perché ci rivela come il legno faccia parte della nostra vita, anche se non ce ne accorgiamo.» - Roberta Scorranese, La Lettura – Corriere della Sera «Un’occasione per riscoprire se stessi... una lezione zen. Pretesto per insegnare la pazienza, il silenzio, il rispetto verso la natura.» - Sabina Minardi, L’Espresso «Norwegian Wood è un saggio e un racconto antropologico insieme, una vera e propria lezione di vita.» - Giuseppe Fantasia, HuffingtonPost «La cosa più strana è che interesserà tutti voi, anche se non avete mai tagliato nemmeno un ramoscello. Una specie di miracolo.» - Pagina99 «Il libro di Lars è stata la mia lettura di Natale. L’ho imparato quasi a memoria.» - Paolo Cognetti «Il libro di Mytting è sorprendente e divertente. Un libro a cui ci si appassiona perché trasmette un’intrinseca sensazione di necessità.» - Fabio Fazio, CHE TEMPO CHE FA «Io sono un non-lettore ma con Mytting non riuscivo a smettere. È un libro stupendo, sono pazzo di questo libro.» - Nicola Savino, RADIO DEEJAY

The Balata Sisters by Hamley Case Summary

Lost in the jungle with no guarantee of survival, who will find them first? This fiction is inspired by a real event which occurred in 1995. Two young girls lost their way in a dense tropical rainforest the size of Britain. They had only their cultural heritage and untested survival instincts to guide them to safety. Harry Horsham, the owner of a logging company, organizes his men into a complex search party to help find the girls. Each day that passes without them being found is a day too many. Not only do the girls have to worry about the unknown dangers of the rainforest, they also have to worry about another search party that hopes to find them. An established gang of human traffickers also takes up the challenge of finding the lost girls. However, their intentions may be more sinister than what the rainforest has in store for them. The two search parties have different motivations in finding the girls, but there can only be one outcome. Nature must take its course. Can the Balata sisters survive in the rainforest and will the right search party find them first? The Balata Sisters is the first novel by Hamley Case, who managed a sizeable logging company in one of the most unpopulated and untamed forests in South America.

The Cabin in the Mountains by Robert Ferguson Summary

Turf-roofed and wooden-built, offering fresh clean air, peace, isolation and the promise of a day's wood-chopping, hiking or snow-clearing amid amid landscapes of great beauty, the hytte – or wooden cabin home – is a crucial part of the national identity of every Norwegian. In 2016, Robert Ferguson and his wife bought a piece of land high up in the Hardangervidda, the plateau that dominates south-central Norway, and on it they built such a hytte. For Ferguson, the hytte represented the realisation of a dream that first brought him to Norway from England more than thirty years ago. As the cabin takes shape he learns, through conversations with friends and cabin-builders, the cultural history of modern Norway. He learns of the changing traditions attached to these cabin homes for native Norwegians as they try to marry their new-found urban affluence to their past as a tight-knit, impoverished rural community-nation. Along the way he also describes the intense and mutually rewarding relationship that arose between the colonial Norwegians and their wealthy, imperialist British neighbours across the North Sea in the 19th and 20th centuries; how the British 'salmon-lords' showed them another way of looking at their great rivers, and how English climbers introduced them to a new way of thinking about their mountains.
