La zapatera prodigiosa

by Federico García Lorca

Una pareja despareja cobra vida en esta farsa plena de simbolismos y matices. Un pasaje creativo cita una historia recurrente en la literatura universal, aunque abordada con la particular óptica del teatro español. Las obras de Federico García Lorca alcanzan cada día mayor difusión y prestigio. Ello evidencia los valores sustantivos y perdurables de las mismas, independientemente de la atención multitudinaria que se vertió sobre la gloriosa figura de su autor a raíz de su muerte trágica. De esta suerte, y no obstante hallarse en constante reimpresión los tomos de sus Obras completas, sus títulos más significativos están accesibles en ediciones sueltas. La zapatera prodigiosa, contrariamente a Yerma, viene a ser un intermedio, un ""divertimento"", pero de la más fina calidad. Corresponde a la modalidad de lo que pudiéramos llamar ""teatro de cámara"", y en efecto, su origen fue éste, ya que se estrenó en el club ""Anfistora"" de Madrid, en 1930.

Youth Culture in Global Cinema

by Timothy Shary Alexandra Seibel

Coming of age is a pivotal experience for everyone. So it is no surprise that filmmakers around the globe explore the experiences of growing up in their work. From blockbuster U.S. movies such as the Harry Potter series to thought-provoking foreign films such as Bend It Like Beckham and Whale Rider, films about youth delve into young people's attitudes, styles, sexuality, race, families, cultures, class, psychology, and ideas. These cinematic representations of youth also reflect perceptions about youth in their respective cultures, as well as young people's worth to the larger society. Indeed, as the contributors to this volume make plain, films about young people open a very revealing window on the attitudes and values of cultures across the globe.

You're So Sweet: Ballet School Confidential

by Charis Marsh

As the second semester at the Vancouver International Ballet Academy approaches, how will four maturing dancers face the new challenges that await them? The Vancouver International Ballet Academy has opened its doors after the winter break, and everyone is back! Julian is finding it difficult to concentrate on dance because of his family; his teachers think he could be great if he could just focus. Kaitlyn believes she’s the best dancer, but her body type is getting in the way of her (and her mother’s) dance ambitions, tempting her to lie. Alexandra is as focused as usual, but others don’t seem to understand how much time and energy she has to give to ballet if she wants to be the best. While Taylor is still criticized at VIBA, she’s getting a lot of positive attention from outside – especially from a recently retired Canadian ballerina who’s taken an interest in her and Julian. Who will get noticed in competition and the spring seminar? Whatever happens, someone’s going to lose and someone’s going to win.

You're So Cold I'm Turnin' Blue: Martha Hume's Guide to the Greatest in Country Music

by Martha Hume

from the PREFACE: Most writing about country music falls into one of three categories. There are scholarly histories and biographies, like Bill Malone's Country Music, U.S.A. and Nolan Porterfield's Jimmie Rodgers; popular "star" autobiographies, such as Loretta Lynn's Coal Miner's Daughter and Tammy Wynette's Stand By Your Man; and there are quasi-journalistic, quasi-sociological books--often anthologies--like Peter Guralnick's Lost Highway: Journeys and Arrivals of American Musicians and Paul Hemphill's Bright Lights and Country Music: The Nashville Sound. In addition to these genres there are also many collections of song folios, of use mainly to the person who wants to learn some of the music for his own enjoyment, and there is the stray piece of fiction, almost always poorly executed. While I have found much to enjoy in books from each of these categories, I haven't found any one that reflects my personal understanding of country music and its world. The histories, certainly valuable pieces of scholarship, are joyless and tedious. The star autobiographies are often fun to read and are of value as social documents, but since they pertain to individual experiences, they cannot be used to learn about the music in general. The anthologies are better, but too often the separate pieces lack a context. With this book, I am trying to provide that context in a way that is neither too scholarly nor too tedious, and in a way that I hope will be fun to read.

You're Only Old Once!

by Dr Seuss

You're Only Old Once! Is this a children's book? Well... not immediately. You buy a copy for your child now and you give it to him on his 70th birthday.

Anyone who has ever submitted to a battery of medical tests will empathize with Dr. Seuss's Everyman in this wry book. In it we follow our hapless hero through his checkup with the experts at the Golden Years Clinic. From the initial Eyesight and Solvency Test HAVE YOU ANY IDEA HOW MUCH MONEY THESE TESTS ARE COSTING YOU? --through all the stops along Stethoscope Row to finally being "properly pilled" and "properly billed," Dr. Seuss lightens the aches and pains of growing old with his inimitable wit and wisdom. While you're waiting for your child to turn 70, why not test-run You're Only Old Once! on an obsolete child now?

You're Only as Good as Your Next One

by Josh Young Mike Medavoy

"If I had a talent for anything, it was a talent for knowing who was talented."Mike Medavoy is a Hollywood rarity: a studio executive who, though never far from controversy, has remained well loved and respected through four decades of moviemaking. What further sets him apart is his role in bringing to the screen some of the most acclaimed Oscar-winning films of our time: Apocalypse Now, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus, The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, and Sleepless in Seattle are just some of the projects he green-lighted at United Artists, Orion, TriStar, his own Phoenix Pictures."The ultimate lose-lose situation for a studio executive: to wind up with a commercial bomb and a bad movie."Of course, there are the box office disasters, and the films, as Medavoy says, "for which I should be shot." They, too, have a place in his fascinating memoir -- a pull-no-punches account of financial and political maneuvering, and of working with the industry's brightest star power, including Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Kevin Costner, Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Sharon Stone, Michael Douglas, Meg Ryan, and countless others."Putting together the elements of a film is a succession of best guesses."Medavoy speaks out on how movie studio buyouts have stymied the creative process and brought an end to the "hands-off" golden age of filmmaking. An eyewitness to Hollywood history in the making, he gives a powerful and poignant view of the past and future of a world he knows intimately.

You're Not Dead Until You're Forgotten

by John Dunning Bill Brownstein

Much to his chagrin, John Dunning was born into the movie business. But once he came to accept his career fate, he developed a great passion for making movies, and ultimately became Canada's pre-eminent B-movie producer, with a knack for developing young talent. In You're Not Dead until You're Forgotten, Dunning, in forthright and charming fashion, recounts his rough-and-tumble upbringing in the Montreal suburb of Verdun in the 1930s, his modest start in the film industry behind the candy counter of his family's movie theatre, and later, his ventures into film distribution and production. In the 1960s Dunning, along with financial wizard André Link, founded Cinepix, which eventually merged into the Lionsgate Entertainment film colossus. Specializing in such exploitation genres as raucous comedy, groundbreaking Québécois "maple syrup porn" and horror films, Cinepix churned out cult classics like Valérie, Shivers, Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS, and Meatballs. Dunning's detailed recollections of making these movies provide a rare, candid, and witty take on how the film industry really works. Driven to succeed in the face of arbitrary censors, parochial Canadian critics, and controlling government funding agencies, Dunning and Link developed a formula for producing controversial, moneymaking movies, and helped launch the careers of such luminaries-to-be as David Cronenberg, Ivan Reitman, and Don Carmody. Cronenberg has called John Dunning "the unacknowledged godfather of an entire generation of Canadian filmmakers." Illustrated with personal photos and film stills, You're Not Dead Until You're Forgotten finally gives this pioneer Canadian filmmaker his long-overdue spotlight.

You're Not a Kid Anymore...

by Jeff Foxworthy

How did this happen? Where did the years go? The irony of it all hit me not long ago, as my wife and I and several friends were looking through old photo albums. We came across some photos of yours truly decked out in my hottest disco threads (skin-tight, shiny copper pants and a cream colored silk shirt ... John Travolta, eat your heart out). Well, the rest of the group was laughing so hard the dryness of their underwear was in serious jeopardy. I just sat there thinking, "#*@!, that was probably the coolest I'll ever be in my life! Cool, not funny."

You're Better Than Me

by Bonnie Mcfarlane

In the spirit of Mindy Kaling, Kelly Oxford, and Sarah Silverman, a compulsively readable and outrageously funny memoir of growing up as a fish out of water, finding your voice, and embracing your inner crazy-person, from popular actress, writer, and comedian Bonnie McFarlane. It took Bonnie McFarlane a lot of time, effort, and tequila to get to where she is today. Before she starred on Last Comic Standing and directed her own films, she was an inappropriately loud tomboy growing up on her parents' farm in Cold Lake, Canada, wetting her pants during standardized tests and killing chickens. Desperate to find "her people"--like-minded souls who wouldn't judge her because she was honest, ruthless, and okay, sometimes really rude--Bonnie turned to comedy. In her explosively funny and no-holds-barred memoir, Bonnie tells it like it is, and lays bare all of her smart (and her not-so-smart) decisions along her way to finding her friends and her comedic voice.From fistfights in elementary school to riding motorcycles to the World Famous Comic Strip, to Late Night with David Letterman, and through to her infamous "c" word bit on Last Comic Standing, You're Better Than Me is her funny and outrageous trip through the good, bad, and ugly of her life in comedy. McFarlane doesn't always keep her mouth shut when she should, but at least she makes people laugh. And that's all that matters, right?
