THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER This Modern Love is a unique crowdsourced book of letters, stories, and photographs about the state of modern romance by YouTuber Will Darbyshire. ‘Question 1. What would you say to your ex, without judgement?’ Seeking closure after a tough break-up, Will Darbyshire was driven to strike up an intimate conversation with his online audience. Posting a series of questions via his YouTube, Twitter and Instagram channels, Will asked his followers to share their innermost thoughts about their relationship experiences, in the form of hand-written letters, poems, photographs, and emails. After 6 months and over 15,000 heartfelt submissions later, from over 100 countries, This Modern Love collects these letters together to form a compendium of 21st century love, structured into the beginning, middle and end of a relationship. Tender, funny and cathartic, This Modern Love is a compelling portrait of individual desires, resentments and fears that reminds us that, whether we're in or out of love, we're not alone.

Una investigación profunda, reflexiva y divertida de los placeres y los peligros del cortejo moderno de la mano de una de las voces cómicas más afiladas de la actualidad. Ganador del Goodreads Choice award 2015 Llegados a un punto, cada uno de nosotros se embarca en un viaje en busca del amor. Conocemos gente, quedamos, nos metemos en una relación o salimos de ella, y todo con la esperanza de encontrar a alguien con quien compartir la vida. Parece algo corriente, lo que siempre se hacía y hacía todo el mundo, pero las cosas eran muy distintas tan solo hace algunas décadas. Los solteros de hoy tienen muchas más oportunidades románticas que en ninguna otra época de la historia humana. Con la tecnología, nuestras habilidades para conocer gente nueva y elegir entre las distintas opciones resultan asombrosas. Entonces, ¿cómo es que hay tanta gente que no lo consigue? Tan solo hace algunas décadas, la gente encontraba a su pareja en su barrio, entre sus vecinos. Las familias se conocían y, tras decidir que ambos eran buena gente y que entre ellos no había ningún asesino en serie, se casaban y pronto llegaba el primer hijo, más o menos cuando tenían alrededor de veinticuatro años. Hoy, en cambio, la gente se casa más tarde que nunca y pasan años en busca de la pareja perfecta, de su alma gemela. El autor, Aziz Ansari, ha sido galardonado con un premio Emmy 2016 por su labor en el guión de la serie de televisión de Netflix, Master of none.

As time passes, everything changes. The world we live in is in turmoil, we stampede from one crisis to the next, never heeding the grand design, If indeed there is one. Imagine now that nothing changes but the now. The now we know here and today is the same as it always was, the same as it always will be. Has not the world always suffered from turmoil, are our lives not the same as those who have gone before us with little more than superficial differences? This is an explanation of time, the characters essentially the same though they live centuries apart, their thoughts, hopes and fears differ little from the reality of today, their goals essentially the same; to eat, have happy lives, to love and be loved, to search endlessly for a contentment that can never be realised. As usual Raymond Walker has brought these unanswered questions to life in an exciting tale of love, passion and loss, Romance and war that will keep every reader mesmerised from the very first pages to the dramatic conclusion

Shortlisted for the Green Carnation Prize 2014 Laurie Penny, one of our most prominent young voices of feminism and dissent, presents a trenchant report on our society today--and our society tomorrow, as she is willing to fight to see it. Smart, clear-eyed, and irreverent, Unspeakable Things is a fresh look at gender and power in the twenty-first century, which asks difficult questions about dissent and desire, money and masculinity, sexual violence, menial work, mental health, queer politics, and the Internet. Celebrated journalist and activist Laurie Penny draws on a broad history of feminist thought and her own experience in radical subcultures in America and Britain to take on cultural phenomena from the Occupy movement to online dating, give her unique spin on economic justice and freedom of speech, and provide candid personal insight to rally the defensive against eating disorders, sexual assault, and internet trolls. Unspeakable Things is a book that is eye-opening not only in the critique it provides, but also in the revolutionary alternatives it imagines.

Cuando estar enamorada significa sufrir, estamos amando demasiado. «He escrito Cartas de las mujeres que aman demasiado con dos propósitos: primero, como una manera práctica de responder en detalle las innumerables cartas que recibí tras la publicación de mi primer libro; y en segundo lugar, para crear la oportunidad de que quienes comparten el problema de la adicción a las relaciones aprendan unos de otros cómo ha sido la lucha y, si se ha producido la recuperación, cómo se logró. Refrescando los principios presentados en Las mujeres que aman demasiado he elaborado cuidadosos y completos análisis de estas cartas, en las que tantas mujeres relataron la manera en que pusieron en práctica los principios de la recuperación. Compartamos, entonces, nuestras experiencias para llegar a una vivencia del amor plena, equilibrada y feliz.» Robin Norwood

Byron started it. The original rockstar. It was thanks to Byron that Itchy wound up living in Chamonix Mont Blanc, the death-sport capital of the world, among the high mountains and low morals. For the last few years he tried to numb the pain of his past with alcohol and adrenaline, but now a serial rapist is stalking Cham's tourist-thronged streets, haunting the same shadows as Itchy and triggering an obsession which will lead him far from Europe's peaks, to the depths of the valley and himself. The promise of Jonathan Trigell's first novel, Boy A, is confirmed in this depiction of the world of extreme sports and adrenaline junkies, where all the violent mistakes of a man's life come back to haunt him.

The period covered in this book ranges from the early part of the 20th century right through to its end-roughly from the death of Chekhov to that of Ted Hughes. The question is raised whether the vision of the modern world that opened up to the authors of this period does not still apply in our own time. The book's main theme is the finality of modern nothingness. What remains that is superhumanly possible, despite all appearances that nothing more and nothing new is left to man to break through with? Civilization for these authors had become denuded of all of its vital forces, and it is as if when faced with the prospect of hopelessness, they would have to invoke the help of the one Power on Whom humankind can rely to see them through the worst. This is the Great Mother or Goddess Who is directly associated with the experience of Nature as this comes down to us from before the straitened confines of the 20th century. It is the experience modern man would deny at the risk of cutting himself off from the one life-giving source that he has.

The Still Point of the Turning World

Like all mothers, Emily Rapp had ambitious plans for her first and only child, Ronan. He would be smart, loyal, physically fearless, and level-headed, but fun. He would be good at crossword puzzles like his father. He would be an avid skier like his mother. Rapp would speak to him in foreign languages and give him the best education. But all of these plans changed when Ronan was diagnosed at nine months old with Tay-Sachs disease, a rare and always-fatal degenerative disorder. Ronan was not expected to live beyond the age of three; he would be permanently stalled at a developmental level of six months. Rapp and her husband were forced to re-evaluate everything they thought they knew about parenting. They would have to learn to live with their child in the moment; to find happiness in the midst of sorrow; to parent without a future. The Still Point of the Turning World is the story of a mother’s journey through grief and beyond it. Rapp’s response to her son’s diagnosis was a belief that she needed to “make my world big”—to make sense of her family’s situation through art, literature, philosophy, theology and myth. Drawing on a broad range of thinkers and writers, from C.S. Lewis to Sylvia Plath, Hegel to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Rapp learns what wisdom there is to be gained from parenting a terminally ill child. In luminous, exquisitely moving prose she re-examines our most fundamental assumptions about what it means to be a good parent, to be a success, and to live a meaningful life.

50 Irresistible True Accounts of Love in the Twenty-first Century. A young woman wryly describes a relationship that races from start to finish almost entirely via text messages. A Casanova is jilted after an idyllic three weeks and learns the hard way that the woman is, well, just not that into him. An overweight woman in a sexless marriage wrestles with the rules of desire. A young man recounts the high-wire act of sharing the woman he loves with both her husband and another boyfriend. A female sergeant in the Missouri National Guard, fresh from Iraq, tells what she is not supposed to tell about the woman she is not allowed to love. These are just a few of the people whose stories are included in Modern Love, a collection of the fifty most revealing, funny, stirring essays from the New York Times’s popular “Modern Love” column. Editor Daniel Jones has arranged these tales to capture the ebb and flow of relationships, from seeking love and tying the knot to having children and finding love that endures. (Cynics and melancholics can skip right to the section on splitting up.) Taken together, these essays show through a modern lens how love drives, haunts, and enriches us. For anyone who’s loved, lost, stalked an ex, or made a lasting connection, and for the voyeur in all of us, Modern Love is the perfect match. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Haig Patapan discovers that Machiavelli intertwines teachings on love with his political and philosophical theories. This book is an invitation to find the implicit teachings on love cleverly intermingled in Machiavelli's works, with the reward of reaching a profound understanding of modernity and Machiavelli's political views in relation to the foundations of love, Patapan reveals that the understanding of love is essential to the appreciation of Machiavelli's political thought. Each chapter of the book engages different facets of the philosopher's thought to yield a comprehensive appreciation of Machiavellian love and fear and its implication for modernity.

Love in Motion

Erotic Relationships in Film

This is a book about how film encountered love in the course of its history. It is also a book about the philosophy of love. Since Plato, erotic love has been praised for leading the soul to knowledge. The vast tradition of poetry devoted to love has emphasized that love is a feeling. Love in Motion presents a new metaphysics and ontology of love as a reciprocal erotic relationship. The book argues that film has been particularly well suited for depicting love in this way, in virtue of its special narrative language. This is a language of expression that has developed in the course of film history. The book spans this history from early silent directors such as Joseph von Sternberg to contemporary filmmakers like Sophia Coppola. At the centre of this study is a comparison between Classical French and American love films of the forties and a series of modernist films by Luis Buñuel, François Truffaut and Wong Kar Wai.
