Hail Gin´s taxi and take a seat for the ride of your life! When we first meet Jindriska/Gin, she is a New York cabbie, a struggling Czech immigrant alternately buoyed-up or battered by life in the guts of the great city. Though married to Talibe, a legal immigrant from West Africa, she lives with Gloria, a Cuban lesbian artist and tiny Josito, the baby of Gloria´s jailed friend. Through Alex, the Russian owner of the garage on 47th Street, Gin rents a succession of yellow taxis of dubious reliability and origin. Thus she meets a collection of characters: hookers, Lotharios, fraudsters, friends, lovers, hangers-on, and an architect who once dreamed of changing the skyline of Manhattan. ´´The gravity of big cities captures us,´´ writes Pekarkova, ´´and when people let themselves be lured... their inevitable butt-falls can be made gentler only by their love for the City; for the unique and thorny planet.´´ Yet despite Gin´s philosophical musings, it´s all about the money: Everybody needs it. Gin drives at all hours through the canyons of skyscrapers, along night streets that glisten with slithering rainbows of motor oil and rainwater, seeking fares, trying to save enough cash to pay the rent and to survive. Pekarkova´s eye for telling detail, her ironic humor, and her deft ear for dialogue helps to create a powerful tale with plenty of laughs, one that is rich in incident and comes in time to a shattering climax. 1.

Interested in experiencing the outdoors but overwhelmed by everything you need to know to backpack safely? Do you have a sudden itch to venture out into the wilderness, wake up next to a babbling brook somewhere and watch the sun slowly come over the horizon? Are you ready to escape (albeit temporarily) from the daily grind and a society that prioritizes consumerism over all else? Backpacking allows us to experience nature in a way that simply isn´t achievable through other means. The problem for many of us, however, is getting started. Finding a good place to backpack, selecting gear (one trip to the sporting goods store makes this seem like an overwhelming feat by itself) and learning how to survive without the modern amenities we have come to rely on are all daunting tasks for the inexperienced backpacker. Backpacking is a rewarding activity that anyone can enjoy with proper knowledge, training and skills. Also, you´ll discover... Selecting appropriate gear for your first trip How to make healthy food choices on the trail Complete gear checklist designed specifically for the novice backpacker And much more!

In 1969 Michael Lydon, a founding editor of Rolling Stone and a leading member of rock writing´s first generation, got a dream assignment: to cover the Rolling Stones´ hopscotch tour across America that ended at Altamont. His long, intimate piece on the tour, The Rolling Stones Discover America, captures the highs and lows of the grueling tour and has become a classic of rock ´n´ roll journalism - one that the Maysles brothers studied to guide the editing of their film, Gimme Shelter. Nobody used the term ´´embedded reporter´´ in those days, but that´s how Lydon lived on the tour, staying in the Stones´ HQ house above LA´s Sunset Strip and in suites at New York´s Plaza Hotel, flying in private jets to Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Boston, gambling in Las Vegas, hanging out backstage at the LA Forum and Manhattan´s Madison Square Garden, smoking pot with ´´The Boys´´ in late night bull sessions, and night after night digging the overpowering, sensuous, and beautiful music. ´´This was the peak of my rock ´n´ roll reporting career,´´ Lydon has said. ´´I knew I was where every hippie in America wanted to be, and I jumped into the tour with my eyes and ears wide open, a big grin on my mug.´´ In The Rolling Stones Discover America, Lydon also describes his own nervousness living so close to stardom. ´´The Stones were good guys and hardworking musicians,´´ he says, ´´but they were the sun kings of the tour universe. The rest of us were minor planets spinning about them in fixed and distant orbits. It´s a miracle I managed to keep my feet on the ground, keep taking notes, and get the story down on paper - but I´m glad I did.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Lydon.
