Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the best selling author and veteran chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster) back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!. Featuring all-new original recipes prepared by Bourdain, plus a yellow ribbon bookmark , and a guide to the ghostly legendary spirits behind these horrifying tales. This horror anthology is sure to please--and scare! On a dark, haunted night, a Russian Oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller tells a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge. Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food. Including stellar artists Sebastian Cabrol, Vanesa Del Rey, Francesco Francavilla, Irene Koh, Leo Manco, Alberto Ponticelli, Paul Pope, and Mateus Santolouco as well as amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope. "A gorgeous, haunting, at times gruesome saga that draws from the Japanese mythologies yokai, yorei, and obake, and mixes terrifying suspense with fascinating culinary intrigue, Hungry Ghosts cements an underrated literary legacy of Bourdain. " Entertainment Weekly "The expanded version of Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts . . . reimagines the Japanese tradition of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai with a particularly spooky twist, as a group of chefs tell a series of stories linked by the common themes of the supernatural and food, each illustrated by artists like Vanesa Del Rey, Francesco Francavilla and Paul Pope. Of course, like all good ghost stories, there's a twist in the tale." --The Hollywood Reporter [Bourdain's] "final graphic novel, Hungry Ghosts, melds food, competition, and -- of course -- spooky specters with the culture-hopping human interest that Bourdain made his calling card." -- SYFY "A series of gastronomic ghost stories that bring together ... [Bourdain's] love of food, Japanese culture and old-school horror comics, plus some new recipes... An all-star roster of illustrators, from alt-comics legend Paul Pope to "The Legend of Korra" artist Irene Koh, to bring each spooky tale to life." --New York Post "The book is a thing of beauty, but the stories are filled with images of death and destruction. Knives and axes feature prominently. Decapitation and amputation abound. Eating but also being eaten. These are horror stories with recipes." --The Independent UK "Structured as an old-fashioned Tales from the Crypt-style horror anthology, complete with a frame story and ghoulish host, the twist ... is that these offerings are all food-themed--and all variations on yarns from Kwaidan, Lafcadio Hearn's collection of traditional Japanese ghost lore. ..... Each piece is drawn by a different artist, including such comics luminaries as Vanesa Del Rey, Francesco Francavilla, and Paul Pope." -- Publishers Weekly "Delicious." -- Previews World "An off-beat and very interesting read .... The artwork on the series ... [is] top notch and fascinating--a perfect combination of collaborators brought the stories to life across cultures." -- Comicon

Living My Life By the Book
34,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Written for people who are sick of thinking about what's in their brains and need a whole new set of ideas and thoughts to overwrite what's already there, Living My Life By the Book contains more than 2,500 jokes and one-liners that will fill readers minds with the thoughts of others that they can't put down, to keep their minds off their own for a while. A book of books that will give you a storied life to think about and not the one you don't like the inevitable ending you see coming for yourself. Willidau has chosen a library full of books to represent his life, so he doesn't have to think about his own storied one. Ken Willidau's philosophy is that anything could have happened so why not just pretend that anything did. Willidau reads into himself all the fiction that would make any non-fiction story blush to make his own reality seem like a happily ever after tale come true. You will be more gripped by this book than the one you'll be white-knuckling as your own plot thickens. Chapters read like books that make a life out of stories that will make it one long sentence to live to the letter. Among them, 'My Friend Flicka', 'Of Mice and Men', 'Go Ask Alice', 'Great Expectations', 'I, Robot', 'Old Yeller', 'Far From the Madding Crowd' and 'Tales From the Crypt' make a life that's stranger than fiction but better than non-fiction when anything different is better than the same old read on it, now. The day is penned by an author of jokes using volumes of wit, novel jokes, eye-in-book humour, manual plays on words, and hardcover/softcover entendre humour. Spending your day with Ken will show you the life you could be living if you were as open to the thought of it as you open up this book to the possibilities of what it could be. Living My Life By the Book is a perfect read for those times when you want to escape the life you are living, yourself, to find out it's just another life out there that may or may not be the good life, as stories go. Let's be a bookmark.
