The View from the Cheap Seats draws together myriad non-fiction writing by international phenomenon and Sunday Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman. From Make Good Art , the speech that went viral, to pieces on artists and legends including Terry Pratchett and Lou Reed , the collection offers a glimpse into the head and heart of one of the most acclaimed writers of our time. ´If this book came to you during a despairing night, by dawn, you would believe in ideas and hope and humans again´ Caitlin Moran ´Literature does not occur in a vacuum. It cannot be a monologue. It has to be a conversation´ This collection will draw you in to exchanges on making good art and Syrian refugees, the power of a single word and playing the kazoo with Stephen King, writing about books, comics and the imagination of friends, being sad at the Oscars and telling lies for a living. Here Neil Gaiman opens our minds to the people he admires and the things he believes might just mean something - and welcomes us to the conversation too.
Things We Thought Of:Told From a Child´s Point of View (Classic Reprint) Mrs George Wemyss
The product of a continuous European architectural and intellectual practice that bridged the Second World War, the work of Rudolf Schwarz (1897-1961) allows a deeper understanding of post-war German architecture. This book examines nine of his religious and secular buildings sited in the Rhineland, which are presented through new survey drawings and photographs. These are accompanied by Schwarz´s project descriptions and his lecture ´Architecture of Our Times´ from 1958, which contextualizes his approach. Essays by Wolfgang Pehnt and an inter view with Schwarz´s wife, the architect Maria Schwarz, provide further insight into this complex oeuvre.
