A Surfing Life
William Finnegan - 2015-07-21
Рейтинг Goodreads
Experience the beauty and danger of surfing in William Finnegan's memoir, "Barbarian Days". This coming-of-age story takes readers on a global journey as Finnegan chases waves and navigates life's ups and downs. From a whites-only gang in Hawaii to a picturesque fishing village in Samoa, Finnegan explores the complexities of close male friendships, social upheavals, sexual politics, and more. This book is an adventure story, an intellectual autobiography, and an extraordinary exploration of the mastery of a little-understood art. It's no wonder why some call it the finest surf book ever written.

Путешествие с Чарли в поисках Америки book cover
Путешествие с Чарли в поисках Америки
John Steinbeck - 2002-02-05 (впервые опубликовано в 1961)
Рейтинг Goodreads
1960 год. Веха между "золотыми пятидесятыми" и "бунтарскими шестидесятыми". Старая, консервативная Америка медленно умирает - а новая только-только рождается. Что же происходит со страной в этот ключевой момент? Летопись Америки 1960 года - в удивительной книге Джона Стейнбека, в которой одна из вечных тем его творчества - дорожная - становится основополагающей. Писатель и его пудель Чарли колесят на грузовичке по городам и весям США - от провинциального Юга до больших городов. Они ищут подлинную Америку. Но где они найдут ее - там, где упорно цепляются за прошлое, или там, где зарождается будущее?

George Orwell - 2022-07-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1949)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Своеобразный антипод второй великой антиутопии XX века - "О дивный новый мир" Олдоса Хаксли. Что, в сущности, страшнее: доведенное до абсурда "общество потребления" - или доведенное до абсолюта "общество идеи"? По Оруэллу, нет и не может быть ничего ужаснее тотальной несвободы...
