'A small masterpiece' Colm Toibin, Daily Telegraph'I don't know how many times I have reread the book, including several times in Catalan, with such effort that speaks volumes to my devotion to the novel' Gabriel Garcia Marquez'The fierce beauty of Rodoreda's writing makes it one of the masterpieces of modern European literature' IndependentFirst published in 1962 as 'La Placa del Diamant', this is considered the most important Catalan novel of all time. This is a new English translation. It has previously been published in English as The Time of the Doves.Barcelona, early 1930s: Natalia, a pretty shop-girl from the working-class quarter of Gracia, is hesitant when a stranger asks her to dance at the fiesta in Diamond Square. But Joe is charming and forceful, and she takes his hand.They marry and soon have two children, for Natalia it is an awakening, both good and bad. When Joe decides to breed pigeons, the birds delight his son and daughter - and infuriate his wife. Then the Spanish Civil War erupts, and lays waste to the city and to their simple existence. Natalia remains in Barcelona, struggling to feed her family, while Joe goes to fight the fascists, and one by one his beloved birds fly away.A highly acclaimed classic that has been translated into more twenty-eight languages, In Diamond Square is the moving, vivid and powerful story of a woman caught up in a convulsive period of history.'An extremely moving love story translated from the Catalan, which reveals much about the Spanish civil war as ordinary, non-political people had to live it' Diana Athill'Go along with Natalia on her night out and you'll soon find you'd follow her anywhere. Rodoreda's writing pays such fierce and tender attention to the experience of being alive, and the tempest that ordinary life can be' Helen Oyeyemi

Luisas PAROLE ist ein wahrer Euro-Disco Diamant und wurde über die Jahre immer gefragter. Jetzt das erste Mal auf Maxi-CD in limitierter Edition.nnLuisas PAROLE ist ein wahrer Euro-Disco Diamant und wurde über die Jahre immer gefragter. Jetzt das erste Mal auf Maxi-CD in limitierter Edition. This summer ANALOG LANGUAGE team would like to deliver something special for maxi CD collectors. We know there are a lot of people among italo and euro disco fans who collect music on CD only. When CD format appeared in the 80s, only a part of singles were released as maxi CD. Many labels still kept on releasing their stuff on 12 and 7 only. Since then many unique titles remained unavailable for CD collectors, especially those who are freaks about collecting maxi CDs. There have been many maxi CD black pearls badly desired by collectors, such as Japanese pressings or limited editions due to the fact the vinyl was still number one format. We cannot go back to the 80s, but we can at least try to deliver some collective items, which weren t previously released on maxi CD. But if they were, for sure today they would be highly demanded collector items. Specially for this occasion we created the UNICORN COLLECTION serie. Each title will 250 copies limited edition only. Catch yours, before it s too late. Number 3 of the serie is LUISA with her high rated single PAROLE . This is a real euro disco gem and through the years it s been highly demanded by vinyl collectors. Now, available on maxi CD in original maxi CD jewel case. TRACKS: 1. PAROLE (Radio Edit) 3:25 2. PAROLE (Extended Version) 7:23 3. PAROLE (Instrumental) 4:37

The Boston Girl

New York Times bestseller! An unforgettable novel about a young Jewish woman growing up in Boston in the early twentieth century, told “with humor and optimism…through the eyes of an irresistible heroine” (People)—from the acclaimed author of The Red Tent. Anita Diamant’s “vivid, affectionate portrait of American womanhood” ( Los Angeles Times), follows the life of one woman, Addie Baum, through a period of dramatic change. Addie is The Boston Girl, the spirited daughter of an immigrant Jewish family, born in 1900 to parents who were unprepared for America and its effect on their three daughters. Growing up in the North End of Boston, then a teeming multicultural neighborhood, Addie’s intelligence and curiosity take her to a world her parents can’t imagine—a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture, and new opportunities for women. Addie wants to finish high school and dreams of going to college. She wants a career and to find true love. From the one-room tenement apartment she shared with her parents and two sisters, to the library group for girls she joins at a neighborhood settlement house, to her first, disastrous love affair, to finding the love of her life, eighty-five-year-old Addie recounts her adventures with humor and compassion for the naïve girl she once was. Written with the same attention to historical detail and emotional resonance that made Diamant’s previous novels bestsellers, The Boston Girl is a moving portrait of one woman’s complicated life in twentieth century America, and a fascinating look at a generation of women finding their places in a changing world. “Diamant brings to life a piece of feminism’s forgotten history” ( Good Housekeeping) in this “inspirational…page-turning portrait of immigrant life in the early twentieth century” ( Booklist).

'Some of these essays are powerful and poetic. Some seem to reflect a stunned condition on the part of the contributor. But all of them share a newborn or reawakened feeling about the country we live in -- an underlying concern for it, whether that concern is rooted in anger and fear, or in a sensed and urgent need for action, or internal correction, or wagon-circling. Some are personal narratives that explain and justify the patriotism of the writer. Some examine and praise the values that make the country great.' -- Hugh Downs, from the Introduction What is the essence of America? In this fascinating new collection inspired by one of our most trusted and beloved commentators, 150 diverse Americans -- from top politicians and entertainers to firefighters and teachers -- express in their own words what America means to them. My America includes candid insights from television journalists such as Mike Wallace and Barbara Walters; politicians including former president George Bush and John Glenn; writers such as Walter Anderson and Anita Diamant; and entertainers, among them Dave Brubeck and Patricia Neal; as well as lesser-known citizens from all over the country. These frank and thought-provoking observations from Americans of every age, race, religion, and social position compellingly illustrate the American mosaic and offer a glimpse into the subconscious mind of this unique and wonderful nation. This touching volume, celebrating the similarities and the differences of a people, reflects our core values and is sure to inspire pride in America. Edited and with an introduction and an epilogue by Hugh Downs -- who coanchored ABC's 20/20, hosted NBC's Today show, and has been an important American voice for more than half a century -- My America explores the values, ideals, and dreams that all Americans share. At a time when people are reassessing their patriotism and rediscovering their national allegiance, emotions regarding the United States are stronger and more poignant than they have been in years, and this sentiment has been captured in these pages. My America is a timely collection for anyone who wants to reflect on America's past, or celebrate its future.

Mit Hits wie 'Waterfalls', 'No Scrubs' und 'Creep' sowie 65 Millionen verkauften Alben, vier Grammys, Platin- und Diamant-Auszeichnungen, zehn Top 10-Singles und vier Nummer 1-Singles gehören TLC bis heute zu den erfolgreichsten und einflussreichsten Girlgroups aller Zeiten. Jetzt meldet sich die Band nach 15 Jahren eindrucksvoll zurück. Nach dem ersten musikalischen Lebenszeichen 'Way Back' mit Westcoast-Rap-Legende Snoop Dogg, erscheint jetzt mit 'Haters' die erste Single aus dem neuen Album der legendären Girlgroup. War 'Way Back' noch ein astreiner Neunziger-Throwback-Track, haben TLC mit 'Haters' einen echten Pop-Banger am Start. 'Haters gonna hate / People gonna say what they say / but we don't care about that anyway', singen T-Boz & Chilli und widmen sich in dem Song einem aktuellen Thema: Mobbing in den sozialen Netzwerken - und machen deutlich, für derartige Lästereien hat das Duo nur ein selbstbewusstes Schulterzucken übrig. 'Haters' ist die erste Single aus dem neuen, selbstbetitelten Album 'TLC', zugleich der erste Longplayer seit '3D' aus dem Jahr 2002. Nachdem Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes sieben Monate vor Albumveröffentlichung bei einem Autounfall ums Leben kam, wurde es ruhig um T-Boz und Chilli. Erst 2015 meldeten sich die beiden mit einem Spendenaufruf zurück und sammelten mithilfe der Crowdfunding Plattform Kickstarter 430.000 Dollar für die Produktion einer neuen Platte. Künstler wie Katy Perry, New Kids on the Block und Justin Timberlake beteiligten sich an der Aktion.Die CD beinhaltet mit insgesamt 17 Tracks zwölf neue Songs plus die fünf Hits 'No Scrubs', 'Creep', 'Unpretty', 'Baby-Baby-Baby' und 'Diggin' On You' als remastered Versionen. 'TLC' erscheint als CD, Vinyl-LP, digital als Download und bei allen üblichen Streaming-Plattformen.
