Includes index. A tell-all memoir of the man who changed the face of breakfast television in Australia. Between Sunrise and The Morning Show, he oversaw 30 hours of network television a week. Along the way, he turned a daggy finance nerd and a suburban mum into household names and even helped propel Kevin Rudd into The Lodge. Now, for the first time, he reveals the inner working of the Sunrise family in an inside account of what some believe is the most competitive slot on television. From bruised egos to high profile scandals, find out what really happens behind the perky smiles.

Title from resource description page (Recorded Books, viewed January 16, 2017). Sumptuous, glorious evocation of Jacobean London and Renaissance Italy from the acclaimed author of The Firemaster's Mistress. Robert Cecil, Secretary of State to James I, has a problem. He owes a vast and secret debt to the Prince of La Spada, who is dying and has called in the loan - and Cecil cannot pay. Even worse, he has staked as security, without royal authority, the King's Great Pearl. To Cecil's surprise, the Prince will agree to a hostage but he wants Cecil's firemaster: Francis Quoynt, the best in his dangerous business. Cecil immediately seizes the chance, for Quoynt also serves as his spy. La Spada is a wealthy, beautiful Italian city-state - the gateway of Europe. Whoever controls the mountain passes of La Spada also controls the flow of intelligence and much of the trade from the Middle East. As his mind disintegrates into fantastic obsessions, the Prince makes his treacherous illegitimate son his heir. Which thwarts the deadly ambition of his daughter, Sofia - the Principessa. Sofia is young, seductive, wily and recently widowed. Already a blooded player of politics, she could outdo Lucretia Borgia in the lethal game of survival. Which she must now play to save herself and her beloved state. As unpredictable as gunpowder, will she choose to seek Francis's heart, or his life' Or both' Bibliogr. p. 409-412. Notes bibliogr. en fin de chapitre. A new expanded edition of Tolkien's most famous, and most important essay, which defined his conception of fantasy as a literary form, and which led to the writing of The Lord of the Rings. Accompanied by a critical study of the history and writing of the text. J.R.R. Tolkien's "On Fairy-stories" is his most-studied and most-quoted essay, an exemplary personal statement of his views on the role of imagination in literature, and an intellectual tour de force vital for understanding Tolkien's achievement in the writing of The Lord of the Rings. "On Fairy-stories" comprises about 18,000 words. What is little-known is that when Tolkien expanded the essay in 1943, he wrote many more pages of his views that were originally condensed into or cut from the published version. An estimate is difficult, but these unpublished passages perhaps amount to half again as much writing as the essay itself. These passages contain important elaborations of his views on other writers, and their publication represents a significant addition to Tolkien studies. Included in this new critical study of the work are: - An introductory essay setting the stage for Tolkien's 1939 lecture (the origin of the essay) and placing it within a historical context.- A history of the writing of 'On Fairy-stories', beginning with coverage of the original lecture as delivered, and continuing through to first publication in 1947.- The essay proper as published in corrected form in Tree and Leaf (1964).- Commentary on the allusions in the text, and notes about the revisions Tolkien made to the text as published in Tree and Leaf.- Important material not included in the essay as published, with commentary by the editors. Contained within "On Fairy-stories" are the roots of the tree of tales that bore such glittering fruit in Tolkien's published and unpublished work. Here, at last, Flieger and Anderson reveal through literary archaeology the extraordinary genesis of this seminal work and discuss, in their engaging commentary, how what Tolkien discovered during the writing of the essay would shape his writing for the rest of his life. A fictional portrait of Nikola Tesla. Traces the notable career of Gregor, a precocious young engineer from Eastern Europe, who travels across the Atlantic to work alongside Thomas Edison, with whom he later holds a long-lasting rivalry.
