About this deal

A Bright Ray of Darkness” is a deeply hopeful story about the possibility of rising above one’s narcissism.

There's definitely some male fantasy stuff happening re: the women in this book and there are problems to pick at this -- but also, the relationship particularly between William and the woman playing Lady Percy speaks to a depth of understanding about showmances that people outside of the theater can't ever really comprehend. A great little novel about an actor’s personal life falling to pieces while he prepares to star in a Broadway rendition of Shakespeare’s Henry IV. Essere o non essere” non vuol dire ammazzarsi o meno, significa porsi la domanda: Hai intenzione di essere sveglio e presente rispetto alla tua vita? From October 2006 through May 2007, he was in The Coast of Utopia by Tom Stoppard at Lincoln Center in New York, playing Mikhail Bakunin. Una scrittura naturale e brillante, ironica e amara sa descrivere il disagio emotivo e nello stesso tempo entrare nei meccanismi profondi di un allestimento teatrale mostrandone la complessità e il fascino, tenendo incollati alle pagine di un racconto strutturato come un dramma classico.

La rabbia e l’ardore lo sostengono, insieme a un desiderio confuso di riscatto e di rivalsa che lotta contro la tentazione di lasciarsi semplicemente andare a fondo. See our Remarkables Archive for some that are no longer in print, but which we are happy to try to track down. g. Dad) who've barely been mentioned suddenly get dropped into the narrative so they can eat up 20-30 pp. In the attempt to be present onstage we have the opportunity to cultivate our ability to be present in life. Mostly the insight into what it's like to be an actor, especially on the stage, especially putting up with other giant egos like your own (if you're an actor).

it communicates a real power’ Sunday Times’A wild ride of a book’ MetroActor William Harding has been caught cheating on his rock star wife and the press have descended upon him. At least some of it is autobiographical, since this circles around a production of Shakespeare's Henry IV in which 32 y. Not usually the genre of book I would read, but was interested by a review of the book as well as an interview Ethan Hawke about his writing. Razni glumci, reditelji, sportisti, voditelji, umetnici, retko se desi da imaju talenta za pisanu reč. The protagonist of this novel, the first in five years from Hawke (best known for his acting role in Richard Linklater's Before trilogy), is also disgusted at the ways in which he has allowed his marriage to collapse around him.I learned quickly of the power, the absolute nuclear power, of the deceit attached to any kind of storytelling. He is the author of Rules for a Knight , The Hottest State, Ash Wednesday and A Bright Ray of Darkness . I figured I'd hit some plateau that was adulthood---where I believed things would just stay level for about forty years while I would do great work and have interesting experiences---then rather uneventfully I would begin to decay and die. All the women characters were just bodies and their only dimension was wanting to have sex with the main character, married or not, they were willing.

Ich konnte mir jede Szene vor Augen vorstellen, also hat Ethan Hawke echt einen guten Job geleistet. I have read reviews for this book that seem almost grudgingly to admit that Ethan Hawke has written a mature novel about separation, identity, accountability, love and the theater. This is a really magnificent audiobook narrated by the man himself - truly entertaining and engaging, I loved listening to him, but - and it’s a big but - the book is brimming with toxic masculinity and cringey sex scenes. What we get is a subtle and realistic character arc as William starts to grow up, both professionally and personally. Es gibt Bücher, selten aber es gibt diese, wo man sich denkt, dass es als Hörspiel, Fernsehserie oder Film besser rüberkommen würde.Or I should say I had long held that to be true, but in that moment, I would have rather died--had a bullet zip right through my cerebral cortex and my blood splash out onto the asphalt--thn let go of that girl's hand.
