The Splendid and the Vile, Erik Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people 'the art of being fearless.' It is a story of political brinkmanship, but it's also an intimate domestic drama, set against the backdrop of Churchill's prime-ministerial country home, Chequers; his wartime retreat, Ditchley, where he and his entourage go when the moon is brightest and the bombing threat is highest; and of course 10 Downing Street in London. Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports -some released only recently - Larson provides a new lens on London's darkest year through the day-to-day experience of Churchill and his family: his wife, Clementine; their youngest daughter, Mary, who chafes against her parents' wartime protectiveness; their son, Randolph, and his beautiful, unhappy wife, Pamela; Pamela's illicit lover, a dashing American emissary; and the advisers in Churchill's 'Secret Circle,' to whom he turns in the hard

Mary Stuart's life was filled with unprecedented drama and controversy. Becoming Queen of Scots at the age of nine months and Queen of France at the age of sixteen, she ascended the throne, which was her birthright, at eighteen. As the head of one of the most troubled countries in Europe, torn apart by religious conflict and power struggles, Mary led armies to victory and defeat; she survived the murder of her second husband and married what was called his murderer. At twenty-five, she was held captive by another queen - Elizabeth Tudor, who signed Mary's death sentence after nineteen years of imprisonment. Renowned historian and biographer John Guy examines the maze of conspiracies that the Scottish lords wove to seize power and the efforts of Elizabeth's ministers to exclude Mary from the rightful heirs to the English throne. It offers completely new interpretations of a famous story that has inspired writers, poets, composers, artists and filmmakers for centuries. The book formed th

The relationship between Freddie Mercury and Jim Hutton evolved over several months in 1984 and 1985. Even when they first slept together, Hutton had no idea who Mercury was, and, when the star told him his name, it meant nothing to him. Hutton worked as a barber at the Savoy Hotel and retained his job and his lodgings in Sutton, Surrey, for two years after moving in with Mercury, and then worked as his gardener. He was never fully assimilated into Mercury's jet-setting lifestyle, nor did he want to be, but, from 1985 until Mercury's death in 1991, he was closer to him than anyone and knew all Mercury's closest friends: the other members of Queen, Elton John, David Bowie, and Phil Collins, to name a few.

'I breathe, and it means - I love! I love, and it means - I live!' These lines were born from the pen of Vladimir Vysotsky not by chance, but as the result of his relationship with Marina Vlady. Therefore, in the national memory, this pair is still inseparable. It is believed that Marina Vlady in some sense "made" Vysotsky, giving him a destiny - bright and beautiful, like in the movies. But real life, as you know, is sometimes very different from what we are shown on the screen. In the love of Vysotsky and Vladi, in addition to the inspired and passionate side about which the bard sang, there was another one, which still hides many secrets and mysteries. What kind?

Ivan Groznyi. Krovavyi poet  [Ivan the Terrible.  Bloody Poet]
  • On Sale!
History
Ivan the Terrible was the first officially declared tsar of Russia. A person who expanded Russia's limits. A person who laid the groundwork for a state system, created a real government from the semi-independent feudal principalities. A person who carried out the most serious reforms in many spheres of life-reforms which, without exaggeration, transformed the old, obsolete Rus' into a real state. Although he is most often portrayed in the role of a loathsome butcher, spilling blood everywhere he went, this is simply entertainment for the sake of a certain sense of sadism in his native country, for the love of execution and torture. The figure of Ivan the Terrible is too majestic and complicated to approach from primitive judgments and abstract intellectual humanism.
