Тревожный дух
(Anxious Spirit)

Собрание прозы «Тревожный дух» бредущий странник, свидетель обрушений и строительств. Его послания насыщены магической образностью и философским содержанием, им покровительствует остережение Карла Ясперса: «Теряя в кризисе мир, человеку надлежит, исходя из имеющихся у него предпосылок, вновь создать свой мир из первоначала», — рассмотреть «идущую ему навстречу идею».

Сила убеждения «Тревожного духа» определяется качеством излучения главной смысловой точки. Как только искание обретает духовное направление, стремление получить результат отмирает само собой. Здоровье в том, чтобы «незадолго перед закатом приходить к озеру думать о душевной надобности». Даже не здоровье, а смысл. Может быть, главный смысл.

Ian Shine’s ‘Anxious Spirit’, is a collection of prose that unravels the very essence of the human condition, as it bears witness to collapse, destruction, construction, and renewal. The use of magical imagery and sublime philosophy elevates the already rich tapestry of meaning to profound proportions. Simultaneously, ‘Anxious Spirit’ pays homage to Karl Jasper’s sentiment — in that a person in crisis, and upon the destruction of their prior world that they knew so well, ignites an inner drive to create their very own paradigm. This person inevitably experiences a thirst for ideas, a willingness to seek them out, and the fortitude to take on responsibility for their selection.

‘Anxious Spirit’s’ persuasive power radiates from its main argument. As soon as spiritual growth becomes the ultimate quest, worldly wants and desires begin to die off on their own. A true picture of health necessarily must include a desire — “to come to the lake shortly before sunset to think about ones’ spiritual needs”. Not for the sake of health, but for the sake of meaning. Perhaps meaning is all there is. And, perhaps it is meaning that is most vital to our survival.

(God does not want to be lonely)

Австралийский писатель, кинорежиссер, сценарист Ян Шайн родился в советской России, там же, началась его творческая деятельность. После отъезда из СССР Шайн принимал участие в работе над различными проектами в содружестве с выдающимися мастерами театра и кино.

Просмотр диковинной ленты с элементами исповедальной мелодрамы, психологического триллера, притчи, исторической саги и, наконец, детской сказки, рекомендован широкому кругу киноманов и любителей мистификаций.

Having spent much of his time working on various projects abroad, he has had the pleasure of collaborating with a magnificent range of standard setting industry specialists, as well as the plethora of brilliantly talented creative minds, to whom Ian seems magnetically drawn.

New e-book edition, as Ian Shine preps for a flood of never before seen releases

Ian Shine, the Soviet born Australian author, screenwriter, and feature film director, is perhaps only weeks away from several notable and never before seen releases. In the meantime, we are graced (pun intended) with a world first e-book edition of his 2010 work. Written in Ian Shine’s native Russian, ‘Бог не хочет быть одиноким’ which roughly translates to “God does not want to be lonely”, was originally published only in print. The new e-book edition could not have come at a better time as an ever increasing number of readers are choosing to download books to their electronic devices.

In a recent interview, Ian remarked that he felt enlivened by the amount of readers who despite belonging to a younger generation, are nonetheless interested in world class literature. When asked about his opinion on the decline of paper and the rise of e-books, he said, “I’m old fashioned. I enjoy the visceral sensation of pages between my fingers, the nostalgic smell of ink on paper, and the comfort in seeing the binding of an old book as it stands the test of time. But as long as people are still reading quality literature, then I really can’t see anything wrong with how they choose to do so.”

Equally as exciting is the prospect of Ian’s never before seen solo and collaborative works.  His latest book ‘Тревожный дух’, which roughly translates to “Anxious Spirit”, is only weeks away from publication. Additionally, a number of collaborative projects with his friend and mentor, the late Tonino Guerra, a creative and cultural giant of the 20th century, are similarly not too far away from being released for the very first time.

‘Бог не хочет быть одиноким’ (God does not want to be lonely), is available through most major online retailers in a spectacular variety of e-book formats, and is also available in a print edition.
