كافئي نفسك

by دانيال ستيل جودي صفير

كان صباحا هادئا ومشمسا من شهر نوفمبر عندما أبعدت كارول باربر نظرها عن شاشة الكمبيوتر وحد قت إلى حديقة منزلها في بيل - آير. كان منزلا حجريا كبيرا عاشت فيه طوال خمس عشرة سنة. الغرفة الزجاجية المشمسة التي تستعملها بمثابة مكتب تطل على شجيرات الورود التي زرعتها والنافورة والبركة الصغيرة التي تعكس صورة السماء. المشهد هادئ والمنزل صامت. بالكاد تحركت يداها فوق لوحة مفاتيح الكمبيوتر خلال الساعة الأخيرة. الأمر محبط فعلا . فعلى الرغم من مسيرتها الطويلة والناجحة في الأفلام كانت تحاول تأليف كتابها الأول. لقد كتبت العديد من القصص القصيرة على مر السنوات لكنها لم تنشر أبدا أيا منها. لقد حاولت ذات مرة المشاركة في تأليف سيناريو فيلم. طوال فترة زواجها تحدثت هي وزوجها المرحوم شون عن إعداد فيلم سينمائي معا لكنهما لم يحققا أبدا ذلك. كانا مشغولين كثيرا في إنجاز أمور أخرى كل في مجال عمله الأساسي. كان شون منتجا ومخرجا بينما كانت هي ممثلة. لكنها لم تكن مجرد ممثلة عادية. كارول باربر نجمة كبيرة وقد حققت النجومية منذ كانت في الثامنة عشرة. أصبح عمرها الآن خمسين سنة واحتفلت بذكرى ميلادها منذ شهرين. وبمحض إرادتها لم تشارك في أي فيلم سينمائي منذ ثلاث سنوات. ففي عمرها وحتى مع جمالها الذي لا يزال مميزا أصبحت الأدوار الجيدة نادرة.

Сексът & кухнята

by Кръстина Стоенчева Patrizia Caiffa

След театралния успех, Патриция Кайфа пренася читателите си в света на "Секса & кухнята". Три раказа, взети от радващите се наогромен интерес представления, които описват няколко напълно различни истории, три случки, видяни през двоен обектив: сексът и чревоугодничеството. Любовта към готвенето или търсена чрез него. Тема, която свързва героинята - мечтателка от "Булото и азбуката" в измъчената ѝ Сицилия, ексцентричните любовници от "Аз мога, наслаждавам се" и пристрастения към готвенето воин от "Черен като болката". Герои без воля в едно отношение - онова между еротиката и храната - което надхвърля понятията за време и място. Разказите са придружени от театралните постановки, от които се раждат, станали още по-ценни чрез прекрасните авторски снимки и илюстрации на Луиджи Пагано.

Ραντεβού Στα Αστέρια

by Jocelyn Han Mary Keramida

Αποφασισμένη να ζήσει ανεξάρτητη, η Βικτόρια Βάις φεύγει από το ασφαλές καταφύγιο του Νέου Βερολίνου στον πλανήτη Άρη, έχοντας αποδεχτεί να κάνει πρακτική άσκηση στον πιο απομακρυσμένο διαστημικό σταθμό του ηλιακού συστήματος. Το να είσαι κόρη του πρεσβευτή της Μεγάλης Γερμανίας δεν είναι εύκολη υπόθεση και η Τόρι χρειάζεται να κάνει μια νέα αρχή μακριά από τους υπερπροστατευτικούς γονείς της. Όμως, δεν είναι εύκολο να ξεφύγεις από το παρελθόν σου, όταν αποκρύπτεις τα πιο σκοτεινά σημεία. Η Τόρι έπαψε να εμπιστεύεται τους άντρες από τότε που είχε μια σεξουαλική γνωριμία που άφησε σημάδια στην ψυχή της, και έτσι όταν ο Υπεύθυνος Ασφαλείας του σταθμού δείχνει να ενδιαφέρεται γι' αυτήν, νιώθει διχασμένη και δεν ξέρει αν πρέπει να ξεφύγει από αυτόν ή να αφεθεί σε νέες εμπειρίες.

الموسيقي الشرقية والغناء العربي

by قسطندي رزق

لقد أُشربت محبة المرحوم عبده الحمولي منذ نعومة أظفاري يوم خالط المرحوم والدي بالزقازيق وزارنا في دارنا وغنانا غناءه العربي؛ فأعجبت به أيما إعجاب وارتسمت في ذهني صورة العروبة الفخمة بما مثَّل أمامنا من الحركات والأقوال التي صوَّرت لي إباء العرب وفروسيتهم وعظمتهم، وما أتاه من شجيّ التلحين وحسن الأداء، وتفخيم اللفظ الدال على معناه، والإبانة في مخارج الحروف، فهو حرىُّ بأن يكنى بغريد الشرق الذي لا تفتح العين على مثله، وأخذت منذ ذلك الحين أشعر بتيار موسيقى يتمشى في عروقي إلى أن أضحيت من المولعين بالغناء العربي الذي لا أصبو إلا إليه، وحزت ملكة التمييز بين جيده ورديئه لا سيما إذا سمعت ركزا لخليط مجدد. ولما هبَّ على الموسيقى العربية عاصف التجديد، وحاول أن يقتلع جذورها من تربتها المباركة الخصبة، شمرت لصد ذلك التيار عنها غيرة على عظمتها وسحرها، واتقاء للرمق الباقي منها، إذ هي الآن والعياذ بالله واقفة على مفترق طريقين لا محيد لها عن سلوك واحد منهما، فإما أن تحيا وتستعيد ماضي شبابها إذا تداركها أولو الأمر منا، وإما أن يسجل عليها الموت الذي لا حياة بعده إذا ألقينا حبل المجددين على غاربهم يجهزون على تلحيننا القومي ويرتضخون لَكْنَةً غربية بدلا من ترديد نبرنا العربي،

Мёрмайд, Инс. (Романтическая комедия)

by Marina De Puig Smirnova Caroline Mickelson

Категорически протестуя против коммерческого китобойного промысла, Миранда с радостью соглашается поменять русалочий хвост на человеческие ноги, когда ей представляется возможность поработать в качестве горничной в доме человека, ответственного за связи с общественностью, работающего на важную японскую китобойную фирму. Миранда скоро узнает, что ей намного больше нравится педикюр и стильные бикини, чем чешуя русалочьего хвоста, и что она превращается в настоящее стихийное бедствие, когда дело доходит до домашних дел. Но в человеческом мире много того, чего она не знает и не понимает. Почему при виде Джастина Локхида, её привлекательного босса, её сердце бьётся быстрее и её коленки слабеют?

Неподвижен Живот В Тази Воняща Клоака

by Metodi Milanov Vincent Fleur

"Неподвижният живот" е едно пасивно състояние, от което не може да се излезе, огорчението от един неизживян живот. Точно това е душевното състояние, което авторът се опитва да ни предаде чрез тази своя прокълната творба. Средството са петнадесетте разказа, които я съставят.Vincent Fleur описва герои потопени в тази "воняща клоака" на тръпчиво-горчиво-сладникаво-кисело ежедневие, на безполезни напъни за изплуване и на живот живян наужким. Започва с един мним диалог между двама близнаци "в утробата" и от една автоматична машина за закуски, която се превръща в спасение от ежедневното, мизерно съществувание; продължава по пътя, който води до секси дами с много наточени зъби (Джаз и Анален коитус), транссексуалци, които се надсмиват на тъжни предприемачи (Милано Милейди) и до скучният и еднообразен провинциален живот на тези, които си мечтаят за големи и приказни градове (Сувенир от Париж), за да достигне накрая до "пеперудите в стомаха", много по-страшни от чудовищата, които се крият в мрака на нашето подсъзнание (Пеперуди).
