Eines der großen Genies der klassischen Pop-Periode. (Dirk von Lowtzow über Brian Wilson) Brian Wilson ist genialer Musiker, der uns unzählige Welthits wie ´´Surfin USA´´ oder ´´Good Vibrations´´ und das Jahrhundertalbum ´´Pet Sounds´´ geschenkt hat. Der amerikanische Rolling Stone hat ihn unter die 20 wichtigsten Künstler aller Zeiten gewählt. Brian Wilson ist auch ein labiler Mensch, der sich mit Tabletten, Drogen und Alkohol immer wieder in Zonen bewegt hat, aus der man ohne fremde Hilfe nicht heil herauskommt. Viele Jahre verschwand Brian Wilson entmündigt in Kliniken, bis seine zweite Frau ihn sprichwörtlich rettete: Für die Bühne, für neue Musik, für das Vermächtnis des einzigen Überlebenden der Beach Boys. Dirk von Lowtzow - Sänger der Band Tocotronic und selbst großer Beach Boys-Fan - begleitet den Hörer durch Brian Wilsons dunkelste Stunden und erzählt, warum der Beach Boy trotz allem noch lange nicht genug hat. 1.

On the eve of his inauguration as President, Woodrow Wilson commented, ´´It would be the irony of fate if my administration had to deal chiefly with foreign affairs.´´ As America was drawn into the Great War in Europe, Wilson used his scholarship, his principles, and the political savvy of his advisers to overcome his ignorance of world affairs and lead the country out of isolationism. The product of his efforts — his vision of the United States as a nation uniquely suited for moral leadership by virtue of its democratic tradition — is a view of foreign policy that is still in place today. Acclaimed historian and Pulitzer Prize finalist H. W. Brands offers a clear, well-informed, and timely account of Wilson´s unusual route to the White House, his campaign against corporate interests, his struggles with rivals at home and allies abroad, and his decline in popularity and health following the rejection by Congress of his League of Nations. Wilson emerges as a fascinating man of great oratorical power, depth of thought, and purity of intention. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Rohan.

In the tradition of Truman, John Adams, and Team of Rivals, the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning biographer of Charles Lindbergh, Maxwell Perkins, and Samuel Goldwyn sheds new light on a president and his presidency in a way that redefines our understanding of a tide-turning historical moment. A hundred years after his inauguration, Woodrow Wilson still stands as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, and one of the most enigmatic. And now, after more than a decade of research and writing, Pulitzer Prize-winning author A. Scott Berg has completed Wilson - the most personal and penetrating biography ever written about the 28th President. In addition to the hundreds of thousands of documents in the Wilson Archives, Berg was the first biographer to gain access to two recently discovered caches of papers belonging to those close to Wilson. From this material, Berg was able to add countless details - even several unknown events - that fill in missing pieces of Wilson´s character and cast new light on his entire life. From the scholar-President who ushered the country through its first great world war to the man of intense passion and turbulence, from the idealist determined to make the world ´´safe for democracy´´ to the stroke-crippled leader whose incapacity and the subterfuges around it were among the century´s greatest secrets, the result is an intimate portrait written with a particularly contemporary point of view - a book at once magisterial and deeply emotional about the whole of Wilson´s life, accomplishments, and failings. This is not just Wilson the icon - but Wilson the man. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeremy Bobb. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/006433/bk_sans_006433_sample.mp3.

They say there are no second acts in American lives, and third acts are almost unheard of. That´s part of what makes Brian Wilson´s story so astonishing. As a cofounding member of the Beach Boys in the 1960s, Wilson created some of the most groundbreaking and timeless popular music ever recorded. With intricate harmonies, symphonic structures, and wide-eyed lyrics that explored life´s most transcendent joys and deepest sorrows, songs like ´´In My Room´´, ´´God Only Knows´´, and ´´Good Vibrations´´ forever expanded the possibilities of pop songwriting. Derailed in the 1970s by mental illness, drug use, and the shifting fortunes of the band, Wilson came back again and again over the next few decades, surviving and - finally - thriving. Now, for the first time, he weighs in on the sources of his creative inspiration and on his struggles, the exhilarating highs and the debilitating lows. I Am Brian Wilson reveals as never before the man who fought his way back to stability and creative relevance, who became a mesmerizing live artist, who forced himself to reckon with his own complex legacy and completed Smile, the legendary unfinished Beach Boys record that had become synonymous with both his genius and its destabilization. Today Brian Wilson is older, calmer, and filled with perspective and forgiveness. Whether he´s talking about his childhood, his bandmates, or his own inner demons, Wilson´s story, told in his own voice and in his own way, unforgettably illuminates the man behind the music, working through the turbulence and discord to achieve, at last, a new harmony. 1.

Erlaubt, dass ich mich William Wilson nenne. Das reine schöne Blatt hier vor mir soll nicht mit meinem wahren Namen befleckt werden, der meine Familie mit Abscheu und Entsetzen, ja mit Ekel erfüllt. Haben nicht die empörten Winde seine Schmach bis in die entlegensten Länder der Erde getragen? Verworfenster aller verlassenen Verworfenen, bist du für die Welt nicht auf immer tot? 1.

William Wilson est poursuivi, son existence durant, par son double (un pantin moraliste, sa conscience ?) qui intervient pour le remettre sur la bonne voie, chaque fois qu´il s´égare dans le mal... or, William Wilson est las de ce harcèlement. Il va donc réagir, mais tragiquement... Cette nouvelle pose la question de l´identité et de l´altérité et est sans doute la plus autobiographique de ses récits. 1. French.

Poe´s eerie story of a strange doppelganger, with a classic twist at the end. William Wilson, from his early schooldays, is dogged and taunted by another boy of similar height and appearance, who bears the same name as himself. Although as young boys they manage to tolerate each other, over time, as Wilson moves through Eton and Oxford and out into the world, his alter ego frequently turns up to thwart him at critical moments in his life. 1.
