Эта книга – второй сборник новелл, отобранных автором из свежего материала, написанного за 2015–2016 годы. От разговорных сцен и выдержек из личной переписки до этюдов «мокрым по мокрому», то и дело стремящихся потерять пунктуацию и перетечь в верлибр, – эти рассказы почти не связаны друг с другом, и единственная причина, по которой они оказались под одной обложкой, продолжает циркулировать из текста в текст по системе кротовых нор, оставаясь недосказанной и неуловимой, как бозон Хиггса.

Confessions of a Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon Confessions of a Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon

Автор: Cap Lesesne

Год издания: 

All that you ever wanted to know – and never imagined – about what goes on behind-the-scenes at one of the world's most prestigious plastic surgeon's office.‘“I don't care if I die,” she said. “I waited my whole life to look good. I'm not going one more day looking the way I do … if I'm not happy, nothing else matters.’”What is it that drives women, and men, to the extreme measure of cosmetic surgery? People are popping out for botox in their lunch breaks, face-lifts before job reviews, breast implants before dates, and liposuction before just about any major event. From the living room to the boardroom to the catwalk, even the most successful and beautiful men and women are paying to go under the surgeon’s knife. And the obsession just keeps on growing!Cap Lesesne, one of the world's most sought-after and respected cosmetic surgeons, has seen them all. He's worked on queens, models, executives and housewives, turned a man into Elvis, been threatened by a Venezuelan oil magnate whose penis turned black and has been asked to implant breasts onto a transexual's back. He travels around the world, calls royalty and glitterati his friends, and can claim to have both saved and destroyed hundreds of relationships with his life-altering fingers.In this timely part-autobiography, part-expose, Cap reveals what life is like as the fairy-godfather with a scalpel, what it is that drives different people around the world to go under the surgeon’s knife, and the secret tell-tale signs of a post-op patient, as well as hundreds of real-life examples of the people he has worked on, from the urbane to the truly bizarre.Cap also reveals what it was that made him choose to take up the profession that is most sneered on in surgical circles and how his choice of profession has altered the way he looks at the world around him.Exciting, revealing and always cutting-edge, CONFESSIONS OF A PARK AVENUE PLASTIC SURGEON puts an astonishing new face on one of the world's fastest growing trends.

From Michael Chabon, the bestselling author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay; his first novel in 5 years is a lovingly painted pop-culture epic. One street in Oakland, California. As the summer of 2004 draws to a close, Archy Stallings and Nat Jaffe are hanging in there, co-regents of Brokeland Records. Their wives, Gwen and Aviva, are the Berkeley Birth Partners, a pair of semi-legendary midwives. When former star quarterback Gibson Goode announces plans to dump his latest Dogpile megastore on Telegraph Avenue, Nat and Archy fear the worst for their vulnerable little enterprise. As behind Goode's proposal a nefarious story lurks. While their husbands struggle to mount a defence, Aviva and Gwen find themselves caught up in a professional battle that tests the limits of their friendship. And into their already tangled lives comes Titus Joyner, the teenage son Archy has never acknowledged. An intimate epic set to the laidback beat of classic vinyl soul-jazz and pulsing with a virtuosic, pyrotechnical style all of its own, Telegraph Avenue is Michael Chabon's most dazzling book yet, and a must-read for fans of Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity’.

Perfect for fans of Maeve Binchy' – CandisDear Reader, I'm living a life I couldn't even have dreamed of a few years ago. I'm married to Bobby Polgar now (you know, the famous chess champion who just happens to be the man I love! ). And we've got this beautiful house with a view of Puget Sound. But lately something's been worrying Bobby. When I asked, he said he was «protecting his queen»–and I got the oddest feeling he wasn't talking about chess but about me. He wouldn't say anything else.Do you remember Get Nailed, the beauty salon in Cedar Cove? I still work there. I'll tell you about my friend Rachel, who's got two men interested in her (count 'em, two). And I'll let you in on what I've heard about Linnette McAfee, who left town when her love life fell apart. (That kind of trouble I know all about. ) Come in soon for a manicure and a chat, okay?
