Томпсон Х.С. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream. Книга для чтения


Доктор журналистики Рауль Дюк и его адвокат Доктор Гонзо отправляются в Лас-Вегас на поиски знаменитой американской мечты. Там они совершают самые немыслимые поступки, однако чудесным образом им всё сходит с рук. По словам самого автора, они открыли для себя способ «жить так, чтобы можно было веселиться, быть диким, пить виски, до утра не ложиться спать, гонять на автомобиле по пустым улицам, чтобы в лицо дул свежий ветер и чтобы не иметь в голове ничего, кроме желания кого-то любить и не быть арестованными». В своём культовом сатирическом и автобиографическом романе икона контркультуры Хантер Томпсон ностальгирует по прошлому, прославляет революционную эпоху 60-х и глумится над консервативным американским обществом 70-х гг. Текст сокращён и адаптирован. Уровень B1.

Stanley A. Steward Where Sin Abounds


Las Vegas has long been characterized as «Sin City.» It is a common assumption of many outsiders that Las Vegas is a spiritual wasteland, devoid of any significant religious community and bereft of traditional values. This is most certainly not the case! In fact, Las Vegas has a strong, healthy, and growing religious dimension. Within this milieu is a strong and rapidly expanding Pentecostal dimension to the city's profile of faith. The Pentecostals in Las Vegas are a microcosm of Pentecostalism both nationally and globally. On the whole, this expression of Christian faith is certainly among the fastest growing religions in the world. Some sociologists and demographics experts identify Evangelicals and Pentecostals as the emerging religious majority in America's future. Most mainstream denominations are in decline, but Pentecostals continue to grow both in numbers and influence. This book will explore and analyze several local Pentecostal congregations and the dynamic relationship between the church and the «Strip.» It will focus on the interplay between one of America's most devout religious subcultures and one its most secular cities.

Brian Sweany Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride


In the highly personal tradition of Jenny Offill and Elena Ferrante, Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride is loosely based on Sweany's tragicomedic teenage life growing up in Indiana and his later years working in the New York publishing industry. Hunter S. Thompson biographer William McKeen called it, “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas meets Leave It to Beaver.” And bestselling author Frank Bill adds, “In the vein of David Sedaris or Chuck Palahniuk, Brian Sweany has written a tight satirical story that has you bent over with laughter one moment, then wiping away the tears the next minute.”

Victoria Pade Cowboy's Baby


MARRIAGE…VEGAS-STYLETwo months ago Kate McDermot had left for Las Vegas a levelheaded virgin–and returned with a marriage certificate and a baby on the way. Experience had taught her Brady Brown would feel trapped by the news that he was going to be a father. So, in her baby's best interest, she'd wait to tell him until after they dissolved the union. But the more time she spent with her «temporary» husband, the harder it became not to reveal the truth hidden safe within her–and the feelings hidden in her heart.

Eva Holland NERVE - Adventures in the Science of Fear (Unabridged)


Award-winning long-form journalist Eva Holland had always felt that her deepest fear was the death of a loved one. When her mother suddenly passes away, she's sent spiraling into an odyssey of confronting fear itself. Along with investigating the science of fear, Holland uses herself as a test subject, jumping out of airplanes, rock climbing, and delving into her fears of loss to better understand what her research in the science, medicine, and history of fear reveals. Along the way, Holland meets the scientists who are developing a pill to leech the fear and horror from traumatic memories and seeks out the sufferers of a rare disease that prevents them from ever feeling fear. She sifts through what we know about the dynamics of how fear spreads in a crowd (and, too often, how it metastasizes into anger and hate). And she applies what she learns to manage her own fears. A mix of Mary Roach and Cheryl Strayed, Holland explores the universal human questions: Why and how do we feel fear? Why does fear seem to spread through groups and crowds like an airborne virus? And, most importantly, is there a cure for fear-and, if so, is «facing our fears» really that cure?
