Table talk

Название – пушкинское. И именно при чтении Пушкина пришла мне в голову мысль последовать его примеру и записать отдельные вспомнившиеся мне мелочи из нашего литературного житья-бытья. Получилось то, что французы определяют словами «le petite histoire», но что, может быть, пригодится и для «большой» истории русской литературы.

Записи эти я мог бы продолжить, дополнить, и думая о многом, уже полузабытом, жалею, что не вел дневника.

обложка книги Teresa, My Love: An Imagined Life of the Saint of Avila Teresa, My Love: An Imagined Life of the Saint of Avila

Mixing fiction, history, psychoanalysis, and personal fantasy, "Teresa, My Love" follows Sylvia Leclercq, a French psychoanalyst, academic, and incurable insomniac, as she falls for the sixteenth-century Saint Teresa of Avila and becomes consumed with charting her life. Traveling to Spain, Leclercq, Kristeva's probing alterego, visits the sites and embodiments of the famous mystic and awakens to her own desire for faith, connection, and rebellion.

One of Kristeva's most passionate and transporting works, "Teresa, My Love" interchanges biography, autobiography, analysis, dramatic dialogue, musical scores, and images of paintings and sculptures to embed the reader in Leclercq's — and Kristeva's — journey. Born in 1515, Teresa of Avila survived the Spanish Inquisition and was a key reformer of the Carmelite Order. Her experience of ecstasy, which she intimately described in her writings, released her from her body and led to a complete realization of her consciousness, a state Kristeva explores in relation to present-day political failures, religious fundamentalism, and cultural malaise. Incorporating notes from her own psychoanalytic practice, as well as literary and philosophical references, Kristeva builds a fascinating dual diagnosis of contemporary society and the individual psyche while sharing unprecedented insights into her own character.

обложка книги The African The African

The African is a short autobiographical account of a pivotal moment in Nobel-Prize-winning author J. M. G. Le Cl zio's childhood. In 1948, young Le Clezio, with his mother and brother, left behind a still-devastated Europe to join his father, a military doctor in Nigeria, from whom he'd been separated by the war. In Le Cl zio's characteristically intimate, poetic voice, the narrative relates both the dazzled enthusiasm the child feels at discovering newfound freedom in the African savannah and his torment at discovering the rigid authoritarian nature of his father. The power and beauty of the book reside in the fact that both discoveries occur simultaneously. While primarily a memoir of the author's boyhood, The African is also Le Cl zio's attempt to pay a belated homage to the man he met for the first time in Africa at age eight and was never quite able to love or accept. His reflections on the nature of his relationship to his father become a chapeau bas to the adventurous military.

The Alpine Path

Lucy Maud Montgomery, the creator of Anne of Green Gables, wrote this charming autobiographical memoir in mid-career. It is the most complete account she published of her childhood and early years as a writer. It originally appeared as a series of magazine articles in 1917.

"The Alpine Path" refers to her long climb to success. She began in childhood and never wavered in her resolve to become an accomplished professional writer. The remarkable success that came with the publication of Anne of Green Gables (which was rejected by many publishers), its sequels, and her other works, was the result of many years of hard, steady work.

All those who have enjoyed the Anne books will be fascinated by this intimate background story by their author. Those who love Prince Edward Island will be delighted by her descriptions of the countryside and its people. No one who reads The Alpine Path can fail to be impressed by the personal appeal of L.M. Montgomery.

обложка книги The Argonauts The Argonauts

An intrepid voyage out to the frontiers of the latest thinking about love, language, and family.

Maggie Nelson's The Argonauts is a genre-bending memoir, a work of "autotheory" offering fresh, fierce, and timely thinking about desire, identity, and the limitations and possibilities of love and language. At its center is a romance: the story of the author's relationship with the artist Harry Dodge. This story, which includes Nelson's account of falling in love with Dodge, who is fluidly gendered, as well as her journey to and through a pregnancy, offers a firsthand account of the complexities and joys of (queer) family-making.

Writing in the spirit of public intellectuals such as Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes, Nelson binds her personal experience to a rigorous exploration of what iconic theorists have said about sexuality, gender, and the vexed institutions of marriage and child-rearing. Nelson's insistence on radical individual freedom and the value of caretaking becomes the rallying cry of this thoughtful, unabashed, uncompromising book.

обложка книги The Autobiography of an Execution The Autobiography of an Execution

Near the beginning of The Autobiography of an Execution, David Dow lays his cards on the table. “People think that because I am against the death penalty and don’t think people should be executed, that I forgive those people for what they did. Well, it isn’t my place to forgive people, and if it were, I probably wouldn’t. I’m a judgmental and not very forgiving guy. Just ask my wife.”

It this spellbinding true crime narrative, Dow takes us inside of prisons, inside the complicated minds of judges, inside execution-administration chambers, into the lives of death row inmates (some shown to be innocent, others not) and even into his own home—where the toll of working on these gnarled and difficult cases is perhaps inevitably paid. He sheds insight onto unexpected phenomena—how even religious lawyer and justices can evince deep rooted support for putting criminals to death—and makes palpable the suspense that clings to every word and action when human lives hang in the balance.

From Publishers Weekly

In an argument against capital punishment, Dow’s capable memoir partially gathers its steam from the emotional toll on all parties involved, especially the overworked legal aid lawyers and their desperate clients. The author, the litigation director of the Texas Defender Service and a professor at the University of Houston Law Center, respects the notion of attorney-client privilege in this handful of real-life legal outcomes, some of them quite tragic, while acknowledging executions are not about the attorneys, but about the victims of murder and sometimes their killers. While trying to maintain a proper balance in his marriage to Katya, a fellow attorney and ballroom dancer, he spells out the maze of legal mumbo-jumbo to get his clients stays or released from confinement in the cases of a hapless Vietnam vet who shot a child, another man who beat his pregnant wife to death and another who killed his wife and children. In the end, Dow’s book is a sobering, gripping and candid look into the death penalty.

Review

“I have read much about capital punishment, but David Dow’s book leaves all else behind.”

Anthony Lewis

“In an argument against capital punishment, Dow’s capable memoir partially gathers its steam from the emotional toll on all parties involved, especially the overworked legal aid lawyers and their desperate clients. The author, the litigation director of the Texas Defender Service and a professor at the University of Houston Law Center, respects the notion of attorney-client privilege in this handful of real-life legal outcomes, some of them quite tragic, while acknowledging executions are ‘not about the attorneys,’ but ‘about the victims of murder and sometimes their killers.’ While trying to maintain a proper balance in his marriage to Katya, a fellow attorney and ballroom dancer, he spells out the maze of legal mumbo-jumbo to get his clients stays or released from confinement in the cases of a hapless Vietnam vet who shot a child, another man who beat his pregnant wife to death and another who killed his wife and children. In the end, Dow’s book is a sobering, gripping and candid look into the death penalty.”

Publishers Weekly

“For a lot of good reasons, and some that are not so good, executions in the U.S. are carried out in private. The voters, the vast majority of whom support executions, are not allowed to see them. The Autobiography of an Execution is a riveting and compelling account of a Texas execution written and narrated by a lawyer in the thick of the last minute chaos. It should be read by all those who support state sponsored killing.”

John Grisham, author of The Innocent Man

“Defending the innocent is easy. David Dow fights for the questionable. He is tormented, but relentless, and takes us inside his struggle with candor and insight, shudders and all.”

Dave Cullen, author of Columbine

“David Dow’s extraordinary memoir lifts the veil on the real world of representing defendants on death row. It will stay with me a long time.”

Jeffrey Toobin, author of The Nine

обложка книги The Barefoot Bandit The Barefoot Bandit

The Barefoot Bandit tells the riveting true story of Colton Harris-Moore, America’s twenty-first-century outlaw. Born into a poor family marred by alcohol abuse, Colt had the local sheriff after him before the age of ten. Colt survived by breaking into homes to forage for food, and learned to evade the police by melting into the Pacific Northwest wilds. As a teenager, he escalated to stealing cars, boats, and identities. An extensive manhunt finally caught Colt, but he escaped juvenile prison and fled to nearby Orcas Island, where he assured his place alongside outlaw legends such as D. B. Cooper by stealing an airplane without ever having a formal flight lesson. And that was just the beginning.

As a resident of Orcas Island, author Bob Friel witnessed firsthand as local police, FBI agents, SWAT teams, and even Homeland Security helicopters pursued Colt around the island. Colt’s crime spree infuriated and terrified many locals, while others sympathized with the barefoot young criminal—the controversy tearing at the formerly quiet community. The story gained international fame, with Time calling Colt “America’s Most Wanted Teen” when he stole and crashed his third airplane. After more than two years on the run in the Northwest, Colt fled Orcas and began a spectacular cross-country trek. Friel followed the Barefoot Bandit all the way to the Bahamas, where the chase finally ended in a hail of gunfire at 3 a.m. on a dark sea.

Through his personal experiences and hundreds of interviews with witnesses, victims, local authorities, Colt’s family, and, indirectly, Colt himself, Friel gives readers an exclusive look at an outlaw legend. Set against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest’s evergreen islands, where Internet millionaires coexist with survivalists and ex-hippies, this is a gripping, stranger-than-fiction tale about a neglected and troubled child who outfoxed the authorities, gained a cult following, and made the world take notice.

“I doubt if even the best fiction writer could create a character like Colton Harris-Moore. This is an incredible but true story. Bob Friel is a gifted reporter and a very fine writer.”

—Nelson DeMille, New York Times bestselling author of The Gold Coast and The Lion

“Something about Colton Harris-Moore—crafty stealer of cars, boats, and airplanes—captured the fascination of our fast-moving country. But it took Bob Friel, a plucky reporter with a pitch-perfect story sense—to chase down the legend and make it real. In Friel’s fine telling, the Barefoot Bandit emerges as both villain and folk hero in a thrilling modern fugitive tale.”

—Hampton Sides, author of Hellhound on His Trail

“A Dillingeresque tale for our current Great Recession era. Friel not only gives a brilliantly clear-eyed look at a bandit’s adventures but also the effects they had on his peaceful community.”

—Matthew Polly, bestselling author of American Shaolin and Tapped Out

“Riveting, thorough, and deeply human, this terrific read doesn’t just tell the story—it brings it to life.”

—Marcus Sakey, bestselling author of The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes and The Blade Itself

“Friel offers a thrilling portrait of a bright and neglected teen trying to outrun authorities and his own troubled past.”

Booklist

“This highly entertaining story of a modern-day Huck Finn will be enjoyed by lovers of adventure stories as well as true crime.”

Library Journal

“It is Friel’s ability to spin a great yarn that draws the reader in from the start and never lets up. And he does it with deft reporting and a breezy and entertaining style that enlivens a tale as incredible as it is true.”

Associated Press

“[A] true-crime classic.”

обложка книги The Beatles. Антология The Beatles. Антология

Этот грандиозный проект удалось осуществить благодаря тому, что Пол Маккартни, Джордж Харрисон и Ринго Старр согласились рассказать историю своей группы специально для этой книги. Вместе с Йоко Оно Леннон они участвовали также в создании полных телевизионных и видеоверсий "Антологии Битлз" (без каких-либо купюр). Скрупулезная работа, со всеми известными источниками помогла привести в этом замечательном издании слова Джона Леннона. Более того, "Битлз" разрешили использовать в работе над книгой свои личные и общие архивы наряду с поразительными документами и памятными вещами, хранящимися у них дома и в офисах.

"Антология "Битлз" — удивительная книга. На каждой странице отражены личные впечатления. Битлы по очереди рассказывают о своем детстве, о том, как они стали участниками группы и прославились на весь мир как легендарная четверка — Джон, Пол, Джордж и Ринго. То и дело обращаясь к прошлому, они поведали нам удивительную историю жизни "Битлз": первые выступления, феномен популярности, музыкальные и социальные перемены, произошедшие с ними в зените славы, весь путь до самого распада группы. Книга "Антология "Битлз" представляет собой уникальное собрание фактов из истории ансамбля.

В текст вплетены воспоминания тех людей, которые в тот или иной период сотрудничали с "Битлз", — администратора Нила Аспиналла, продюсера Джорджа Мартина, пресс-агента Дерека Тейлора. Это поистине взгляд изнутри, неисчерпаемый кладезь ранее не опубликованных текстовых материалов.

Созданная при активном участии самих музыкантов, "Антология "Битлз" является своего рода автобиографией ансамбля. Подобно их музыке, сыгравшей важную роль в жизни нескольких поколений, этой автобиографии присущи теплота, откровенность, юмор, язвительность и смелость. Наконец-то в свет вышла подлинная история `Битлз`.

 
обложка книги The Bin Ladens The Bin Ladens

The rise and rise of the Bin Laden family is one of the great stories of the twentieth century; its repercussions have already deeply marked the twenty-first. Until now, however, it is a story that has never been fully told, as the Bin Ladens have successfully fended off attempts to understand the family circles from which Osama sprang. In this the family has been abetted by the kingdom it calls home, Saudi Arabia, one of the most closed societies on earth.

Steve Coll’s The Bin Ladens: An Arabian Family in the American Century is the groundbreaking history of a family and its fortune. It chronicles a young illiterate Yemeni bricklayer, Mohamed Bin Laden, who went to the new, oil-rich country of Saudi Arabia and quickly became a vital figure in its development, building great mosques and highways and making himself and many of his children millionaires. It is also a story of the Saudi royal family, whom the Bin Ladens served loyally and without whose capricious favor they would have been nothing. And it is a story of tensions and contradictions in a country founded on extreme religious purity, which then became awash in oil money and dazzled by the temptations of the West. In only two generations the Bin Ladens moved from a famine- stricken desert canyon to luxury jets, yachts, and private compounds around the world, even going into business with Hollywood celebrities. These religious and cultural gyrations resulted in everything from enthusiasm for America—exemplified by Osama’s free-living pilot brother Salem—to an overwhelming determination to destroy it.

The Bin Ladens is a meticulously researched, colorful, shocking, entertaining, and disturbing narrative of global integration and its limitations. It encapsulates the unsettling contradictions of globalization in the story of a single family who has used money, mobility, and technology to dramatically varied ends.

обложка книги The Book of the Dead The Book of the Dead

The team behind the New York Times bestseller The Book of General Ignorance turns conventional biography on its head—and shakes out the good stuff.

Following their Herculean—or is it Sisyphean?—efforts to save the living from ignorance, the two wittiest Johns in the English language turn their attention to the dead.

As the authors themselves say, “The first thing that strikes you about the Dead is just how many of them there are.” Helpfully, Lloyd and Mitchinson have employed a simple—but ruthless—criterion for inclusion: the dead person has to be interesting.

Here, then, is a dictionary of the dead, an encyclopedia of the embalmed. Ludicrous in scope, whimsical in its arrangement, this wildly entertaining tome presents pithy and provocative biographies of the no-longer-living from the famous to the undeservedly and—until now—permanently obscure. Spades in hand, Lloyd and Mitchinson have dug up everything embarrassing, fascinating, and downright weird about their subjects’ lives and added their own uniquely irreverent observations.

Organized by capricious categories—such as dead people who died virgins, who kept pet monkeys, who lost limbs, whose corpses refused to stay put—the dearly departed, from the inventor of the stove to a cross-dressing, bear-baiting female gangster finally receive the epitaphs they truly deserve.

Discover:

• Why Freud had a lifelong fear of trains

• The one thing that really made Isaac Newton laugh

• How Catherine the Great really died (no horse was involved)

Much like the country doctor who cured smallpox (he’s in here), Lloyd and Mitchinson have the perfect antidote for anyone out there dying of boredom. The Book of the Dead—like life itself—is hilarious, tragic, bizarre, and amazing. You may never pass a graveyard again without chuckling.

обложка книги The Brothers The Brothers

An important story for our era: How the American Dream went wrong for two immigrants, and the nightmare that resulted.

On April 15, 2013, two homemade bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston marathon, killing three people and wounding more than 264 others. In the ensuing manhunt, Tamerlan Tsarnaev died, and his younger brother, Dzhokhar, was captured and ultimately charged on thirty federal counts. Yet long after the bombings and the terror they sowed, after all the testimony and debate, what we still haven’t learned is why. Why did the American Dream go so wrong for two immigrants? How did such a nightmare come to pass?

Acclaimed Russian-American journalist Masha Gessen is uniquely endowed with the background, access, and talents to tell the full story. An immigrant herself, who came to the Boston area with her family as a teenager, she returned to the former Soviet Union in her early twenties and covered firsthand the transformations that were wracking her homeland and its neighboring regions. It is there that the history of the Tsarnaev brothers truly begins, as descendants of ethnic Chechens deported to Central Asia in the Stalin era. Gessen follows the family in their futile attempts to make a life for themselves in one war-torn locale after another and then, as new émigrés, in the looking-glass, utterly disorienting world of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Most crucially, she reconstructs the struggle between assimilation and alienation that ensued for each of the brothers, incubating a deadly sense of mission. And she traces how such a split in identity can fuel the metamorphosis into a new breed of homegrown terrorist, with feet on American soil but sense of self elsewhere.

обложка книги The Child Who Never Grew The Child Who Never Grew

Pearl S. Buck’s groundbreaking memoir, hailed by James Michener as “spiritually moving,” about raising a child with a rare developmental disorder.

The Child Who Never Grew is Buck’s candid memoir of her relationship with her oldest daughter, who was born with a rare type of mental retardation. A forerunner of its kind, the memoir was published in 1950 and helped demolish the cruel taboos surrounding learning disabilities. Buck describes life with her daughter, Carol, whose special needs led Buck to send her to one of the best schools for disabled children in the United States — which she paid for in part by writing The Good Earth, her multimillion-selling classic novel. Brave and touching, The Child Who Never Grew is a heartrending memoir of parenting. As Buck writes, “I learned respect and reverence for every human mind. It was my child who taught me to understand so clearly that all people are equal in their humanity and that all have the same human rights.”

обложка книги The Chronology of Water The Chronology of Water

This is not your mother’s memoir. In The Chronology of Water, Lidia Yuknavitch expertly moves the reader through issues of gender, sexuality, violence, and the family from the point of view of a lifelong swimmer turned artist. In writing that explores the nature of memoir itself, her story traces the effect of extreme grief on a young woman’s developing sexuality that some define as untraditional because of her attraction to both men and women. Her emergence as a writer evolves at the same time and takes the narrator on a journey of addiction, self-destruction, and ultimately survival that finally comes in the shape of love and motherhood.

обложка книги The Corfu Trilogy The Corfu Trilogy

Gerald Durrell (1925–95) moved from England to Corfu with his family when he was eight. He immediately became fascinated by the island’s natural history and spent much of his time studying the local wildlife and keeping numerous, and often unusual, pets. He grew up to be a famous naturalist, animal-collector, and conservationist.

Durrell dedicated his life to the conservation of wildlife and it is through his efforts that creatures such as the Mauritius pink pigeon and the Mallorcan midwife toad have avoided extinction. Over his lifetime he wrote thirty-seven books, went on dozens of animal-collecting trips and presented numerous tv shows. He founded the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in 1959 as a centre for the conservation of endangered species – of which his wife Lee is still Honorary Director. He was awarded the OBE in 1982.

обложка книги The Crusader The Crusader

Based on extraordinary research: a major reassessment of Ronald Reagan’s lifelong crusade to dismantle the Soviet Empire–including shocking revelations about the liberal American politician who tried to collude with USSR to counter Reagan’s efforts

Paul Kengor’s God and Ronald Reagan made presidential historian Paul Kengor’s name as one of the premier chroniclers of the life and career of the 40th president. Now, with The Crusader, Kengor returns with the one book about Reagan that has not been written: The story of his lifelong crusade against communism, and of his dogged–and ultimately triumphant–effort to overthrow the Soviet Union.

Drawing upon reams of newly declassified presidential papers, as well as untapped Soviet media archives and new interviews with key players, Kengor traces Reagan’s efforts to target the Soviet Union from his days as governor of California to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of what he famously dubbed the “Evil Empire.” The result is a major revision and enhancement of what historians are only beginning to realize: That Reagan not only wished for the collapse of communism, but had a deep and specific understanding of what it would take—and effected dozens of policy shifts that brought the USSR to its heels within a decade of his presidency.

The Crusader makes use of key sources from behind the Iron Curtain, including one key memo that implicates a major American liberal politician–still in office today–in a scheme to enlist Soviet premier Yuri Andropov to help defeat Reagan’s 1984 reelection bid. Such new finds make The Crusader not just a work of extraordinary history, but a work of explosive revelation that will be debated as hotly in 2006 as Reagan’s policies were in the 1980s.

     Clinton Hillary Rodham
     Наука, Образование, Политика, Документальная литература, Биографии и Мемуары, Публицистика

    “In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.”

    —Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened

    For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

    In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.

    She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

    The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath—both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.

  •  Записки Филиппа Филипповича Вигеля. Части первая — четвертая
     Вигель Филипп Филиппович
     Документальная литература, Биографии и Мемуары

    Филипп Филиппович Вигель (1786–1856) — происходил из обрусевших шведов и родился в семье генерала. Учился во французском пансионе в Москве. С 1800 года служил в разных ведомствах министерств иностранных дел, внутренних дел, финансов. Вице-губернатор Бессарабии (1824–26), градоначальник Керчи (1826–28), с 1829 года — директор Департамента духовных дел иностранных вероисповеданий. В 1840 году вышел в отставку в чине тайного советника и жил попеременно в Москве и Петербурге.

    Множество исторических лиц прошло перед Вигелем. Он помнил вступление на престол Павла, знал Николая Павловича ещё великим князем, видел семейство Е. Пугачева, соприкасался с масонами и мартинистами, посещал радения квакеров в Михайловском замке. В записках его проходят А. Кутайсов, князь А. Н. Голицын, поэт-министр Дмитриев, князь Багратион, И. Каподистрия, поколение Воронцовых, Раевских, Кочубеев. В Пензе, где в 1801–1809 гг. губернаторствовал его отец, он застал в качестве пензенского губернатора М. Сперанского, «как Наполеона на Эльбе», уже свергнутого и сдавшегося; при нём доживал свой век «на покое» Румянцев-Задунайский. Назначение Кутузова, все перипетии войны и мира, все слухи и сплетни об интригах и войне, немилость и ссылка Сперанского, первые смутные известия о смерти Александра, заговор декабристов — все это описано Вигелем в «Записках». Заканчиваются они кануном польского мятежа. Старосветский быт, дворянское чванство, старинное передвижение по убогим дорогам с приключениями и знакомствами в пути, служебные интриги — все это колоритно передано Вигелем в спокойной, неторопливой манере.

    Издание 1891 года, текст приведён к современной орфографии.

  •  1956. Венгрия глазами очевидца
     Байков Владимир Сергеевич
     Наука, Образование, История, Документальная литература, Биографии и Мемуары

    Воспоминания Владимира Сергеевича Байкова, переводчика и референта ЦК КПСС, выходят через 60 лет после драматических событий, произошедших на многострадальной венгерской земле. 23 октября 1956 года началась, как тогда клеймила это советская пропагандистская машина, «контрреволюция», а после переосмысления всех обстоятельств ее стали называть «народным восстанием». Книга Владимира Байкова, который в те тяжелейшие дни находился постоянно рядом с новым руководителем Венгрии Яношем Кадаром, поможет еще глубже понять логику действий советского и венгерского руководства, а также трагизм последствий принятых ими решений.

  •  Вы, разумеется, шутите, мистер Фейнман!
     Фейнман Ричард Филлипс
     Наука, Образование, Физика, Документальная литература, Биографии и Мемуары

    Американский физик Ричард Фейнман — один из создателей квантовой электродинамики. Нобелевский лауреат, но прежде всего — незаурядная многогранная личность, не вписывающаяся в привычные рамки образа «человека науки».

    Он был известен своим пристрастием к шуткам и розыгрышам, писал изумительные портреты, играл на экзотических музыкальных инструментах. Великолепный оратор, он превращал каждую свою лекцию в захватывающую интеллектуальную игру. На его выступления рвались не только студенты и коллеги, но и люди, просто увлеченные физикой.

    Свое кредо как популяризатора науки он описал одной блестящей фразой: «Если вы ученый, квантовый физик, и не можете в двух словах объяснить пятилетнему ребенку, чем занимаетесь, — вы шарлатан».

    Перевод с английского Сергея Ильина.
