Triple bill of features from film-maker Ang Lee. 'Pushing Hands' (1992) follows retired t'ai chi master Mr. Chu (Sihung Lung) as he relocates from Beijing to the New York suburbs to live with his son Alex (Bo Z. Wang) and American daughter-in-law Martha (Deb Snyder). But he struggles to adapt to Western culture and his continued presence causes tension between his son and Martha, who is struggling to complete her second novel. In 'The Wedding Banquet' (1993), wealthy couple Wai-Tung Gao (Winston Chao) and his partner Simon (Mitchell Lichtenstein) are living the American dream in Manhattan. But Wai-Tung's parents are still putting pressure on their son to get married and have kids, unaware that he's gay. Simon proposes a marriage of convenience between Wai-Tung and his beautiful tenant, Wei-Wei (May Chin), who illegally sublets Wai-Tung's loft and is in need of a green card. As Wei-Wei moves in with the two men, Wai-Tung's parents arrive from Taiwan to attend their son's wedding. However, what began as a simple lie descends into a fully fledged farce as a small city hall ceremony transforms into an enormous wedding banquet and the truth is forced to come out. Set in Taipei, Taiwan, 'Eat Drink Man Woman' (1994), follows a family whose seemingly close ties unravel over a short period of time. Elderly widower Mr. Chu (Lung) is a top chef who loses his sense of taste and begins to lose patience with his three ungrateful daughters. Over the course of several Sunday banquets there are revelations of pregnancy, rejection, death and true love which change the family forever.
The Sirens of Titan is an outrageous romp through space, time, and morality. The richest, most depraved man on Earth, Malachi Constant, is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side. Of course there's a catch to the invitation and a prophetic vision about the purpose of human life that only Vonnegut has the courage to tell. As an added bonus, when you purchase our Audible Modern Vanguard production of Kurt Vonnegut's book, you'll also receive an exclusive Jim Atlas interview. This interview – where James Atlas interviews Gay Talese about the life and work of Kurt Vonnegut – begins as soon as the audiobook ends. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jay Snyder.

If you think Saddam and Satan are a kinky couple, wait til you get a load of South Park and Philosophy. Like Mr. Hanky at Christmas, this is a book whose time has come. Twenty-two philosophers here address such perennial questions as, "Is Dan Rather real?" "Should Big Gay Al be allowed to marry Mr. Slave?" And, of course, what does philosophy have to do with flatulence? M'kay?Current concerns are also considered. Are American voters inevitably forced to choose between a turd and a douche? Does South Park's blasphemous humor go too far? If its okay to ridicule Islam, is it okay to skewer Scientology? How does Cartmanland raise the problem of evil?If you like Chef's salty balls, you'll love this book - unless of course you're a damn hippie. In which case, you go to hell, you go to hell, and you die! So get your Big Wheels ready and, whether you've got one or four asses, were going for a ride! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jay Snyder.

When interior designer David Snyder buys a beautiful century-old house in eastern Washington, he is reeling with heartbreak and looking for somewhere to put down roots. Unfortunately his new home comes with a laundry list of problems: electrical, plumbing, heating...things David knows nothing about. When his mother offers him the business card of a local handyman, David pictures an overweight, balding man in his fifties. But Jackson Henry couldn't be further from that stereotype. Dark-haired, muscular, and handsome, Jackson left a large construction firm in Seattle to take care of his sick mother. However, his hometown still has an active "good old boy" network, and finding employment in construction is almost impossible for an openly gay man. Determined to persevere, Jackson takes odd jobs as a handyman. He's exactly what David needs - in more ways than one. David isn't ready for his attraction to Jackson, not considering the way his last relationship ended. But as the two men get to know each other, it becomes clear that the heart often knows best, and it rewards those willing to listen. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Pauley.

The rainman gave me two cures And he said, Just jump right in." The one was Texas Medicine And the other was railroad gin. And like a fool I mixed them And they strangled up my mind Now people just get uglier And I have no sense of time." -Bob Dylan, "Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again" The guiding metaphor in Peter Coyote's new spiritual biography is drawn from a line in an early Bob Dylan song. For Coyote, the twin forces Dylan identifies as Texas Medicine and Railroad Gin - represent the competing forces of the transcendental, inclusive, and ecstatic world of love with the competitive, status-seeking world of wealth and power. The Rainman's Third Cure is the tale of a young man caught between these apparently antipodal options and the journey that leads him from the privileged halls of power to Greenwich Village jazz bars, to jail, to the White House, lessons from a man who literally held the power of life and death over others, to government service and international success on stage and screen. Expanding his frame beyond the wild ride through the 1960s counterculture that occupied so much of his lauded debut memoir, Sleeping Where I Fall, Coyote provides listeners intimate portraits of mentors that shaped him - a violent, intimidating father, a be-bop Bass player who teaches him that life can be improvised, a Mafia consigliere, who demonstrates to him that men can be bought and manipulated, an ex game-warden who initiates him into the laws of nature, a gay dancer in Martha Graham's company who introduces him to Mexico and marijuanas, beat poet Gary Snyder, who introduces him to Zen practice, and finally famed fashion designer Nino Cerruti who made the high-stakes world of haute monde Europe available to him. 1.
