How well does the news media convey what is really going on in the world? Not well at all. Knowing how stories are selected and how video clips are created as the actual news scenes unfold will give you a new perspective on what you are seeing-and not seeing-when you watch the news.

The Secret Life
20,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The slippery online ecosystem is the perfect breeding ground for identities: true, false, and in between. We no longer question the reality of online experiences but the reality of selfhood in the digital age.In The Secret Life: Three True Stories, Andrew O'Hagan issues three bulletins from the porous border between cyberspace and the 'real world'. 'Ghosting' introduces us to the beguiling and divisive Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, whose autobiography the author agrees to ghostwrite with unforeseen-and unforgettable-consequences. 'The Invention of Ronnie Pinn' finds the author using the actual identity of a deceased young man to construct an entirely new one in cyberspace, leading him on a journey into the deep web's darkest realms. And 'The Satoshi Affair' chronicles the strange case of Craig Wright, the Australian web developer who may or may not be the mysterious inventor of Bitcoin, and who may or may not be willing, or even able, to reveal the truth.What does it mean when your very sense of self becomes, to borrow a phrase from the tech world, 'disrupted'? Perhaps it takes a novelist, an inventor of selves, armed with the tools of a trenchant reporter, to find an answer.

A Collection of Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories
29,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

'Fans of Kipling's work will appreciate the new look and newcomers to the classic stories will be taken in by the bold artwork and approachable trim size.' — Publishers Weekly How did the rude Rhinoceros get his baggy skin? How did a 'satiably curious Elephant change the lives of his kin evermore? First told aloud to his young daughter ('O my Best Beloved'), Rudyard Kipling's inspired answers to these and other burning questions draw from the fables he heard as a child in India and the folktales he gathered from around the world. In this sumptuous volume, Kipling's playful, inventive tales are brought to life by eight of today's celebrated illustrators, from Peter Sís's elegantly graphic cetacean in 'How the Whale Got His Throat' to Satoshi Kitamura's amusingly expressive characters in 'The Cat That Walked by Himself.' From one of the world's greatest storytellers come eight classic tales just begging to be heard by a new generation — and a visual feast that offers a reward with every retelling.  Featuring illustrations by: Christopher Corr Cathie Felstead Jeff Fisher Satoshi Kitamura Claire Melinsky Jane Ray Peter Sís Louise Voce
