T(i)m: A Graphic Retelling
This is the author’s first endeavor in the world of comics. It’s a confessional graphic memoir that looks at sexuality, religion, beliefs, and anything that helps answer the question, “Who am I?” This narrative isn't an autobiography about every detail of life, nor is it a selective narrative that only deals with addiction. The book is more as a portrait of the author at a moment in time, which tries to capture the essence of identity and how we become who we are. Through dealing with issues of religion, sexuality, gender, and family, this narrative explores what it means to grow up.

T. G. Masaryk a Václav Havel
Spisovatel Jan Bauer, který napsal už více jak sto knih s převážně historickou tématikou, předkládá čtenářům zajímavé příběhy dvou velkých Čechů. Jeden, ten první, T. G. Masaryk, vytvořil tento stát na demokratických základech a Václav Havel nám zase demokracii vrátil. Autor oba tyto velikány srovnává jako politiky, spisovatele, filozofy, vlastence, ale ukazuje, jaký měli například vztah ke Slovensku, k náboženství, k ženám i v čem ve vysokých funkcích selhali. Dokládá, že je naším štěstím, že zformovali tento stát, Československou republiku a po rozdělení Českou republiku. Můžeme být na ně hrdí, neboť do základů naší státnosti vložili to nejcennější – svobodu a demokracii.

T. S. Eliot
The winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, the twentieth century's most famous poet and its most influential literary arbiter, T.S. Eliot has long been thought to be an obscure and difficult poet--forbiddingly learned, maddeningly enigmatic. Now, in this brilliant exploration of T.S. Eliot's work, prize-winning poet Craig Raine reveals that, on the contrary, Eliot's poetry (and drama and criticism) can be seen as a unified and coherent body of work. Indeed, despite its manifest originality, its radical experimentation, and its dazzling formal variety, his verse yields meaning just as surely as other more conventional poetry. Raine argues that an implicit controlling th...

T.E.Lawrence - Tormented Hero
** This electronic edition includes 62 black-and-white photographs **&#xa0;<br /><br /> In T. E. Lawrence: Tormented Hero, Andrew Norman sheds new light on Lawrence of Arabia, who remains a mystery to this day. Lawrence s sexual orientation is discussed in detail, including his dislike of physical relationships, and it is suggested that he suffered from sexual aversion disorder. Evidence that he was beaten on several occasions, at his own request, comes from several sources and appears to be irrefutable. New light is shed on his fatal motorcycle crash in May 1935, and evidence is presented showing that it occurred in a different location and manner to that which is genera...

This heartrending story shares one woman’s inspirational perseverance in the face of tragedy.

T.S. Eliot
A cinquant’anni dalla morte, T.S. Eliot (1888-1965) è ancora attuale. La sua poesia, insieme a quella dei grandi sperimentatori suoi contemporanei – Virginia Woolf e James Joyce –, ha segnato la prima metà del XX secolo. Tra le sue opere, The Waste Land rappresenta la parabola apicale della decadenza europea dopo la tragedia del primo conflitto mondiale, mentre la sua produzione teatrale, specie con il dramma Murder in the Cathedral, si pone come una tappa importante nello sviluppo della drammaturgia degli anni Trenta e Quaranta. Questo libro rivisita l’arte di Eliot alla luce della sua visione dell’Europa, un’entità spirituale oltre che politica, incapace ancora di trov...

Ta Bu or not Ta Bu: True Tales of an Aging Hippie Chick
My story is about growing up in the 1950s and 1960s and the dramatic social changes that propelled society in new directions. Looking back, I can say some things are better because of the tremendous reverberations of the 1960s, and some things are worse. It depends on how you look at it. This is a story about polarities. This is a story about truth and lies, right and wrong, victimization and survival, children and adults, rebellion and conformity, realities and fantasies, idealism and realism, guilt and innocence, holding grudges and forgiving, certainties and uncertainties, defeat and triumph, and consenting and relenting.

Ta Ra Fergie
In December 1989, United fanatic Pete Molyneux raised a banner calling for Alex Ferguson’s head, sparking the most famous protest in Old Trafford’s 103 years. For manager and supporter alike it was their darkest hour. Pete never gave up on his team and, thank God, Fergie stayed.

Ta sensibilité te tueras
« En général, vous êtes “malade” depuis des années, sans le savoir. À vrai dire, votre entourage vous a toujours trouvé difficile, spécial, susceptible, colérique, excessif. Mais&#xa0;comme, quasi simultanément, vous lui apparaissez tendre, sincère, généreux, capable d’empathie, et même prêt à tous les sacrifices pour aider ceux que vous aimez, on vous juge attachant… »<br /><br /> De « ta sensibilité te tuera ! » à « ta sensibilité te&#xa0;sauvera&#xa0;»&#xa0;: ainsi pourrait se résumer le parcours auquel nous convie Marie-France de Palacio.

Taavetti Livingstone, hänen elämänsä ja toimensa
Erinomaisella mielihyvällä katselee ihmis-ystävä sellaisia henkilöitä, jotka vaatimatta minkäänlaatuista omaa hyötyä työskentelevät ihmiskunnan yhteiseksi eduksi ja varsinkin sellaisten kanssa-ihmisten, joille onni ei ole suonut samoja etuja kuin rikkaille ja sivistyneille. Kun tämänkaltainen työ sitäpaitse tehdään suurimmalla uutteruudella, ja kun se on saanut alkunsa siitä osanottavaisuudesta, jonka Luoja muutamille on antanut runsaammassa määrässä kuin toisille, niin on se sitä kauniimpi, kuta harvinaisemmin sitä ylimalkaan nähdään. Sillä ihmisluonnossa on jo alkuaan taipumus itsekkäisyyteen, ja paljo useammin nähdään yksityisten sortavan toisten oikeutta oman etunsa s...

Tab Hunter Confidential
Welcome to Hollywood, circa 1950, the end of the Golden Age. A remarkably handsome young boy, still a teenager, gets "discovered by a big-time movie agent.

The open smile says, "You will love me," and soon the whole world does. <br /><br /> The young boy's name was Tab Hunter—a made-up name, of course, a Hollywood name—and it was his time.
