This letter is your death sentence. To avenge what you have done you will die. But what has Manno the pharmacist done? Nothing that he can think of. The next day he and his hunting companion are both dead.The police investigation is inconclusive. However, a modest high school teacher with a literary bent has noticed a clue that, he believes, will allow him to trace the killer. Patiently, methodically, he begins to untangle a web of erotic intrigue and political calculation. But the results of his amateur sleuthing are unexpected—and tragic. To Each His Own is one of the masterworks of the great Sicilian novelist Leonardo Sciascia—a gripping and unconventional detective story that is also an anatomy of a society founded on secrets, lies, collusion, and violence.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. To Each His Own is a low-budget collection of previously recorded songs by Bobby Vinton, released in 1971. It contains two of Vinton's Top 20 hits of the 1960s (Blue on Blue and Tell Me Why) and eight (apparently randomly picked) album tracks. Oddly enough, it does not include any of the four #1 hits that Vinton had during that decade.Bobby Vinton (born Stanley Robert Vinton, Jr.; April 16, 1935) is an American pop music singer of Polish origins.Vinton is the only child of a locally popular bandleader, Stan Vinton. At 16, Vinton formed his first band, which played clubs around the Pittsburgh area. With the money he earned, he helped finance his college education at Duquesne University, where he studied music and graduated with a degree in musical composition. While at Duquesne, he became proficient on all of the instruments in the band: piano, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, drums and oboe.

"This thesis examines the theory and practice of comedy in Lina Wertmüller's film The Seduction of Mimi (1972), as well as emphasizing its social and historical context, with a special focus on its depiction of the Sicilian mafia. The author seeks to provide a framework for understanding the different registers of the film's meaning by drawing from works of social and political history, as well as film history and criticism. The first chapter serves as an introduction, discussing previous interpretations of the film and suggesting new areas of exploration. The second chapter examines the implications of the film's title and enumerates the film's major themes. The third, fourth and fifth chapters explore the social and political background of the film's Sicilian setting. The sixth and seventh chapters detail the interrelation between social and sexual politics as exemplified in Wertmüller's film. The eighth chapter deals with the film's depiction of the Sicilian mafia and its influence on society. And, finally, the ninth, tenth and eleventh chapters delve into the film's complex use of stereotype and caricature."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.

Gefangen im eigenen Körper. Martin ist zwölf, als ihn eine rätselhafte Krankheit befällt: Er verliert seine Sprache, die Kontrolle über seinen Körper, ist nach wenigen Monaten völlig hilflos. Die Ärzte sagen seinen Eltern, er werde für immer schwerstbehindert bleiben. Was niemand ahnte: Im Kokon seines Körpers verbirgt sich ein schrittweise erwachender Geist und eine zutiefst lebendige Seele. Als Martin aufwacht, kann er nur mit den Augen Lebenszeichen geben. Eine Pflegerin erkennt schließlich, dass er sehr wohl bei Bewusstsein ist und alles um sich herum mitbekommt. Dann endlich erhält er die Hilfe, die er benötigt, um sich ganz ins Leben zurück zu kämpfen. Martin Pistorius erzählt bewegend und absolut authentisch darüber, was ihn in den elf Jahren der Hilflosigkeit am Leben gehalten hat. Sein dramatisches Buch über seine Erfahrungen zeigt, dass mit der Unterstützung einer Familie, die nicht aufgibt und einem großen Lebenswillen sogar Wunder möglich sind.
