The Other Paris: The People's City, Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries "The elevation of the obscure and the overlooked, the discarded or hidden or marginal, to artistic status or cultural
369
$15.95 USD

"The elevation of the obscure and the overlooked, the discarded or hidden or marginal, to artistic status or cultural prominence has become a cottage industry for artists and writers of late, but as an anti-ghostbuster, Sante is in a class by himself . . . the pleasures to be had from the fruits of his research are considerable . . . [The Other Paris's] great virtue is to send the reader down investigative paths of his own." ―Molly Haskell, The New York Times Book Review "'The city,' [Sante] insists, '―compact and curled within itself, a labyrinth―had to be played like a game.' This is an idea―I'll admit it―that I love, not just in regard to Paris but also to the very essence of urban life . . . Sante is highlighting the law of unintended consequences, which brings us back to dérive again. Throughout "The Other Paris," he invokes the figure of the flâneur, which is to say the one who walks to connect to the city through the soles of his or her feet . . . Here, we see the sneaky genius of The Other Paris, which, like Low Life, conceals the complexity of its structure, masquerading as a popular history . . . until it reveals that it has been about circling all along." ―David L. Ulin, Los Angeles Times “Sante’s knowledge of the voluminous Paris literature is prodigious . . . his great gift is his ability to draw on the ‘verbal photography’ of previous writers to send the reader back in time.” ―Arthur Goldhammer, BookForum “The Other Paris is both eulogy and paean to the matrixes of anarchy, creativity, crime, and serendipity that once gave shape to the City of Light.” ―Anna Wierner, The New Republic “[Sante] casts his lot with the ragpickers and streetwalkers, and his readers are better off for it.” ―Dmitry Samarov, The Chicago Tribune “[Sante] has written a wonderfully rich book, packed with information, lively in style, evoking the turbulence of a vanished time and city.” ―Allan Massie, The Wall Street Journal “This brilliant, beautifully written essay is the finest book I have ever read about Paris. Ever. Thank you, Luc Sante.” ―Paul Auster “Nowadays, the old, crowded, swarming, surly cities are at least half-forgotten. But in this great chronicle, Luc Sante recalls when Paris was rougher, when the poor, the tough, the unregulated, the underworld, thrived there; maybe the city was also less rough, in that there was room for nearly everyone all the way down the social ladder. Hanging over The Other Paris is the contemporary curse that perhaps hit Paris first, of cities that have become bland transnational stopping places for the privileged. Magisterial as ever, Sante returns us to the flavor, texture, savor, shouts, and clashes of the bygone city.” ―Rebecca Solnit “The Other Paris is a heartbreaking spectacle, immense in intellectual and political scope and emotional reach. Peopled by crooks and movie stars, gamblers and thinkers, the world's premier city of dreams is rendered, through Luc Sante's fine hand, historian's eye, and poet's heart, into a place we hardly knew-a world of hitherto unknown mysteries and realities. A grand journey in an epic work.” ―Hilton Als "The good news is that Sante is a formidable guide to the Parisian past at ground and underground level . . . Sante ends his book with a hymn to flâneurie, this lazy meandering pursuit of truth, drink and other goals, like the literary archaeology of a city that’s no longer there. Following his path is worth the inevitable hangover." ―David D'Arcy, San Francisco Chronicle "Sante vividly captures this 'other' Paris . . . The Other Paris is immersive and enjoyable. The abundant pictures are fascinating." ―Sarah Grant, Booklist “'We have forgotten what a city was,' Luc Sante provocatively writes about Paris. By the last chapter of this absorbing book, we are convinced. Washerwomen and ragpickers, bohemians and clochards, anarchists and apaches, all play their part in this alternative urban history. This is not the Gay Paree of Maurice Chevalier, though he too makes an appearance.” ―Witold Rybczynski “All who love Paris will love this book.” ―Kirkus Reviews About the Author Luc Sante was born in Verviers, Belgium. His other books include Low Life, Evidence, The Factory of Facts, and Kill All Your Darlings. He is the recipient of a Whiting Writers' Award, an Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a Grammy (for album notes), an Infinity Award for Writing from the International Center of Photography, and Guggenheim and Cullman fellowships. He has contributed to The New York Review of Books since 1981, and has written for many other magazines. He is the visiting professor of writing and the history of photography at Bard College and lives in Ulster County, New York.

293
$15.30 USD

A New York Times Relationships Bestseller “This amazing book is about a revolutionary concept—recovery for the non-addict, for those who have longed for what their recovering friends have: a spiritual path, healthy company, and a little light to see by. Paul Williams and Tracey Jackson have great insight into our shared problems, solutions, humanity, craziness, and dreams. Plus, they will make you laugh, and give you hope, that recovery—starting over—is for everyone who has imagined a life of immediacy, honesty, and joy.” —Anne Lamott "Witty and modern." —Marc Spitz, VanityFair.com “Paul and Tracey have come up with a brilliant insight: recovery is not just for addicts. Why should our friends in recovery be the only ones to benefit from this time-tested wisdom? I’ll take some too, please. If you read this book, you’ll feel better by page 5 or thereabouts. And by page 51, you’ll be underlining passages and making notes in the margins - at least if you’re like me. It helped me change the way I think, eat, feel, even do my housework. My deep gratitude to Paul and Tracey for writing this book that will help millions.” —A.J. Jacobs, author of The Know-It-All “Self-help books can be so woo woo and annoying. Gratitude and Trust is the brilliant exception. This life-affirming book is bursting with wicked insights, bravado and wit.” —Simon Doonan, author of The Asylum “Reading Gratitude and Trust is like a long sit-down with a couple of very smart, funny, plain-spoken friends who have been through some hard times, and are here to help you avoid the same pitfalls. This is a generous and insightful book.” —Dani Shapiro, author of Slow Motion "The affirmations address spiritual and practical needs... [Gratitude and Trust] may come at a time when our increasingly obsessive and addictive culture revels in escapism in the form of video games, binge show watching, overating, and the many varieties of diversion on the Internet." —East Hampton Star “What a great gift – Christmas, Hanukah, holidays – to give Gratitude and Trust.” —Oprah Winfrey, Super Soul Sunday “Personal and powerful… An amazing book.” —Kathie Lee Gifford About the Author Paul Williams is an Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe winning Hall of Fame songwriter ("Rainbow Connection," "Evergreen," and "We've Only Just Begun") and President of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). He is a major public force in the recovery movement, a graduate of UCLA's Drug and Alcohol Counseling Certification Program and has served as a member of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence Board of Directors. He was a founding board member and counselor for the Musicians Assistance Program (MAP), now the treatment wing of MusiCares. He has been a passionate public advocate for the recovery movement for the past twenty-four years. Tracey Jackson wrote the films Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Guru and The Other End of the Line among others. She has also written twelve TV pilots, and created the series BABES for Fox TV. Tracey wrote, directed, and starred in the controversial documentary Lucky Ducks, which can presently be seen on Amazon, Journeyman Docs and pay for view. Her first book, Between a Rock and Hot Place: Why Fifty is Not the New Thirty, came out in 2011 and was optioned for a TV movie by Lifetime. Tracey blogs three times a week on traceyjacksononline.com. She has blogged for Huffpo, WOWOWOW, Society for Drug Free America, Tiny Buddha and various other sites.

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things An Amazon Best Book of September 2015: Jenny Lawson follows up her marvelous debut Let’s Pretend This Never Happened with her
310
$15.19 USD

An Amazon Best Book of September 2015: Jenny Lawson follows up her marvelous debut Let’s Pretend This Never Happened with her determination to be furiously happy: she will seize the strangest and most glorious moments of her life while she stares down her depression, severe anxiety, avoidant personality disorder, and much more—and dares it to stop her. Furiously Happy is not only a battle cry but a delirious seesaw of a memoir. One moment you swoop upward as Lawson relates her attempts to hold a koala in Australia while wearing a koala costume and explains her quirky love for taxidermied animals (who must be dead from natural causes only), and you’re giggling like a three-year-old. Then your stomach drops like an artillery shell when Lawson exposes the dark side of her mental illnesses: trying not to cut herself and holing up in her bedroom for days on end. The ups and downs make this a difficult book to read all in one go. However, Lawson uses both her hilarious and heartbreaking episodes to camouflage so many life lessons and biting observations. (A poignant example: when cancer victims don’t respond to medication, no one blames the cancer victim; people with mental illness don’t get the same respect.) This is a book you’ll want to savor. Whether or not you too suffer from depression, you’ll turn the last page fired up by Lawson’s conviction that you can be furiously happy no matter what life hurls at you.--Adrian Liang “Jenny made me laugh so hard I feared for my safety! I think that's how she was able to get past my defenses and make me feel more okay about myself.” ―Allie Brosh, author of Hyperbole and a Half “You'll laugh, wince, writhe in discomfort, cry, then laugh again. You might even feel the need to buy a raccoon. But the two things you'll never do is doubt Jenny's brilliance or her fearlessness when it comes to having honest discussions about mental illness, shame, and the power of human resilience. She's changing the conversation one rented sloth at a time.” ―Brené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, Daring Greatly “I freaked strangers out by snort-laughing on the subway and in restaurants. I can't stop talking about this book to friends. I'll shut up now and let you resume your life but buy this book. It's AMAZING.” ―Paul Fischer, author of A Kim Jong-Il Production “The Bloggess writes stuff that actually is laugh-out-loud, but you know that really you shouldn't be laughing and probably you'll go to hell for laughing, so maybe you shouldn't read it. That would be safer and wiser.” ―Neil Gaiman “Even when I was funny, I wasn't this funny.” ―Augusten Burroughs, author of Running with Scissors and This Is How “Lawson's self-deprecating humor is not only gaspingly funny and wonderfully inappropriate; it allows her to speak...in a real and raw way.” ―O, The Oprah Magazine “[Lawson] writes with a rambling irreverence that makes you wish she were your best friend.” ―Entertainment Weekly “Take one part David Sedaris and two parts Chelsea Handler and you'll have some inkling of the cockeyed humor of Jenny Lawson...[She] flaunts the sort of fearless comedic chops that will make you spurt Diet Coke through your nose.” ―Parade

$6.99 USD

SOUND CITY--REAL TO REEL is a brand new collection of all-new all-original songs, each one composed and recorded exclusively for the film within its own 24-hour session on that console after it was reinstalled in Grohl and his Foo Fighters' own 606 Studios. The new tracks--featuring an amazing and idiosyncratic cast of collaborators including Paul McCartney, Grohl's former Nirvana and current Foo Fighters bandmates, Stevie Nicks, Rick Springfield, Trent Reznor, Joshua Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick, Lee Ving of Fear, Corey Taylor of Slipknot, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford of Rage Against The Machine and more--passionately exemplify SOUND CITY's celebration of the human element of musicianship and recording in an increasingly digital world. SOUND CITY, the film, was conceived by Grohl after purchasing the legendary custom-built Neve 8028 recording console from Sound City Studios last year. The board, built in 1972, is considered by many to be the crown jewel of analog recording equipment, having recorded such artists as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Guns and Roses, Metallica, NIN, Rage Against The Machine and countless other musical legends over the past 40 years. Grohl's personal connection to Sound City began with the 1991 recording of Nirvana's breakthrough album, Nevermind. Selling over 30 million copies worldwide, Nevermind changed the entire musical landscape and forever altered the course of Dave Grohl's life. Track Listings: 1. Heaven And All- Robert Levon Been, Dave Grohl, Peter Hayes 2. Time Slowing Down- Chris Goss, Tim Commerford, Dave Grohl, Brad Wilk 3.

319
$16.19 USD

“Getting smart about Social Security can put tens of thousands of extra dollars in your pocket. With that in mind, start by reading, Get What’s Yours. . . . The book translates—into often-entertaining English—the many convoluted rules that make up the Social Security program. . . . [Does] a great job of helping you make sense of, and get the most from, Social Security. . . . Invaluable.” (Glenn Ruffenach The Wall Street Journal) “An indispensable and surprisingly entertaining guide for anyone who is retiring or thinking of retiring with all of the Social Security benefits they’ve earned.” (Jane Pauley) “Choosing when to take Social Security is one of the biggest decisions of your life. By doing it right, you can add hundreds of thousands of dollars to your lifetime income and leave more money for your spouse as well. This great book tells you how . . . and it’s funny, too!” (Jane Bryant Quinn, author of Making the Most of your Money NOW) “Social Security is the biggest source of retirement income for many Americans . . . that just means that [Get What's Yours]'s tricks and tips will be ever more relevant. . . . Given that there are 2,728 core rules and thousands more supplements to them according to the authors, it pays, literally, to seek out a guide.” (Ron Leiber The New York Times) “I love this book! Seriously! Who could ever guess that reading about Social Security could be this entertaining? And if you think you know enough about the subject, you would be wise to think again. Smartly written by an all-star, financial expert dream team, the engaging, down-to-earth prose makes Get What’s Yours the definitive guide to maximizing what is, for many, the most important retirement asset by far. From determining the best age to claim (hint: it’s not what you’ve been told) to figuring out the intricacies of spousal benefits to avoiding the ‘gotchas’ that can reduce your checks, this must-read guide is truly that. And don’t be surprised if you actually enjoy it!" (Beth Kobliner, author of Get a Financial Life) “[Goes] a long way in educating the public and financial advisers about this important lifetime benefit. Get What's Yours is a fun read for advisers with a slightly snarky tone that puts the absurdity of the program's more than 2,800 rules into perspective.” (Mary Beth Franklin Investment News) "The Social Security system has 2,728 core rules. You can't be expected to learn them on your own, and you can't depend on Social Security staff members to guide you through them to make the right decisions. Use a financial planner with expertise in Social Security, or read and reread an excellent book such as Get What's Yours, to make the decisions that will provide you and your family with the most benefits." (Elliot Raphaelson The Chicago Tribune) “[A] can’t-miss guide to the system. . . . Clear enough for even the most intimidated reader, with a concluding cheat sheet helpfully summing up the book’s suggestions. The authors’ palpable fervor to help readers get back what they’ve paid will energize readers to claim what is rightfully theirs.” (Publishers Weekly) “Just what we need: a clear explanation of how Social Security works—and how to get the highest benefits—without reading all 2,728 rules of the Social Security system.” (Library Journal) About the Author Paul Solman has been Economics Correspondent for the PBS NewsHour since 1985. He is also Brady-Johnson Distinguished Fellow in Grand Strategy at Yale University, teaches at Gateway Community College in New Haven, and has served on the faculty at the Harvard Business School and his alma mater, Brandeis University.

Fire And Skill: The Jam Live

Named after the legend painted on Paul Weller s amp, Fire And Skill is a superb six disc boxed set featuring six previously unreleased concerts, one from each year of The Jam s major-label career. Starting with an incendiary early gig at London s famous 100 Club from 1977, the show featured took place 10 months after they first played the venue in November 1976, and was recorded for broadcast on American radio ahead of the trio s inaugural visit to US in October 1977 for a six-date tour. A Music Machine show from 1978, featuring most of the 2nd album This Is The Modern World . The show was The Jam s sixth live show of the year and one of four low-key shows in the capital to fanfare their new News Of The World single under the banner The London Blitz . Reading University, February 1979 - playing material from their breakthrough album All Mod Cons , was The Jam s first live appearance of 1979, and found the band in a radically different place to their showcase at the Music Machine 12 months before. In that time, their third album, All Mod Cons , had been released to critical acclaim, and their status as one of the New Wave s most musically substantial and exciting bands had been secured. And Weller was still only 20 years old... Newcastle City Hall October 1980, previewing songs from forthcoming album Sound Affects . In the time between The Jam s show at Reading University on Disc 3 and their appearance at Newcastle City Hall 20 months later, there had been more extraordinary developments in the group s world. Setting Sons , their fourth album, had given them a Top 3 hit with The Eton Rifles , which was followed in February 1980 with the stirring Number 1 single, Going Underground . After three years on Polydor, The Jam had finally become the biggest group in the UK. London s legendary Hammersmith Palais December 1981, part of The Jam s four consecutive nights, previewing material from the forthcoming final album The Gift . The shows taking the innovative form of a 60s soul revue, showcasing new acts including Bananarama, Department S and TV21. One of the band s final ever gigs at Wembley Arena - 1982. Late in 1982 The Jam announced they were splitting up - there would, though, be a final chance for fans to experience The Jam s astonishing live shows, with a 14-date farewell tour announced for late November and December. The centrepiece was a five-night stand at Wembley Arena, the 10,000-capacity shed next to the London football stadium (the recording here is from the second date), the biggest live venue in the capital. Packaged in mini, lift-off lid box this set includes a separate hard-back book and individual gatefold wallets for the discs, as well as new essay, period photos and rare memorabilia. All audio has been remastered at Abbey Road.

336
$14.29 USD

An Amazon Best Book of August 2015: Ruth Ware's In a Dark, Dark Wood has all the hallmarks of a good psychological thriller-- a woman lured back to a past she's spent a decade trying to escape, a few unstable characters, and a shocking death. The impending marriage of Nora's best friend from that long ago time brings her to a glass-walled cabin deep in the woods, for a hen party (the U.K. equivalent of a bachelorette weekend). But why is she there when the two haven't spoken since Nora fled their college town ten years ago? As the party gets underway things start to take a dark turn that builds with each passing moment. In a Dark, Dark Wood is a slow burn, each revelation and obfuscation luring the reader at an ever faster pace towards its ultimate life and death conclusion.--Seira Wilson I started IN A DARK, DARK WOOD on an airplane, kept dipping into it whenever I was left alone, devoured another big chunk on the flight home, and after that surrendered myself to it until the last revelation had bloomed, the final surprise had exploded, and the bittersweet conclusive turn had folded the final page. Ruth Ware has written an exciting, and in fact amazing book that never stops circling around behind the reader and clapping its cold hands over her eyes. (Peter Straub, New York Times bestselling author) I raced through this, totally unable to put it down...Dark, smart and compulsive. (Nicci Cloke, author of Lay Me Down) "So gripping. So glad my hen days are behind me. It’s going to be huge." (Tamar Cohen, author of Dying for Christmas and The Broken) “The next Girl on the Train…Ware hews [close] to the new genre of twisty-mystery women’s books.” (Vulture) "Ware slowly unspools the mystery, setting a truly spooky scene … with a constant undercurrent of danger. Read it on adark and stormy night—with all the lights on." (Kirkus Reviews) "Who pulls a gun at a bachelorette party? The answers are unveiled with Gillian Flynn-style trickery." (O Magazine) "Likely to be the next Gone Girl." (Elizabeth Willse Surrounded by Books) "Haunting." (Style Boston) "Eerie and mysterious!" (EBookClassics) "An English psychological thriller...compared to Gone Girl and Girl on the Train." (Steve Bennett My San Antonio) “[In a Dark, Dark Wood] will appeal to fans of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl and Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train.” (Publisher's Weekly) "If the premise might be the sort that Agatha Christie would have toyed with had she been a 21st-century graduate, Ware’s analysis of the power-games some women revel in – and the toxicity in the undertow of some female friendships – is more reminiscent of Sophie Hannah, Christobel Kent, or even Gillian Flynn and Harriet Lane." (Patricia Nicol Independent) “In a Dark, Dark Wood packs a noirish punch that would make the Queen of Crime herself proud.” (Bustle) “[In a Dark, Dark Wood] mixes tropes popularized by such suspense novels as S.J. Watson’s Before I Go to Sleep and Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl… with Agatha Christie touches. Ware writes with verve and energy, building up the suspense and keeping the pages flying." (Library Journal) “Ware’s debut novel sets the stage for her to become a household name… Engaging, suspenseful and mysterious.” (RT Book Reviews) "Just try to guess how sinister this plot can get (hint: VERY)." (Marie Claire) "You’ll find it almost impossible to put this twisting, electrifying debut down...[The] foggy atmosphere and chilling revelations will leave you breathless.” (Entertainment Weekly) “WARNING: This book is hot. Do not pick it up late at night or if you are in a dark, dark wood...Ruth Ware has a gift. This British author’s first foray into fiction is a hit…it delivers a punch and keeps you guessing—an ideal August psychodrama that reminds us why mysteries remain such fun—except at night.” (The New York Journal of Books) “An enchantingly unsettling thriller with mysterious characters and a classically spooky setting.” (Shelf Awareness) “The best thing about In A Dark, Dark Wood is the eerie atmosphere it creates for this ill-fated weekend, never overwrought, just ominous enough, the glass house where the guests are trapped ‘dark and silent, blending into the trees, almost invisible.’” (USAToday.com) "The pulse-quickening plot of In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware will keep you up until the small hours." (Good Housekeeping, UK) "Ruth Ware's stunning first novel (catch it before the inevitable film) digs into all the hidden horrors of female 'friendship'; suddenly, the old playground secrets come slithering out." (Saga, UK) "A sinister mood lurks in [In a Dark, Dark Wood]." (Elle Magazine, UK) “Fans of Gone Girl and Girlon a Train will love Ruth Ware’s gripping In a Dark, Dark Wood.Amnesia, a bachelorette party and alcohol fuel this twisty, suspense novel.” (Campus Circle)

Joy of Living: A Tribute to Ewan Maccoll

This 2-CD set features new interpretations of MacColl's songs from artists who span the worlds of pop, rock, Celtic, and folk. Rather than trying to be a definitive collection, it provides a testament to the range and influence of this remarkable singer and songwriter. Known as the godfather of the first British folk revival, Ewan MacColl is hailed for writing such classic songs as The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, Dirty Old Town, The Shoals of Herring and The Joy of Living. JOY OF LIVING: A TRIBUTE TO EWAN MACCOLL is a flawlessly formed centenary tribute to the multi-talented artist from MacColl s two sons, Calum and Neill. Highlights include Steve Earle's take on Dirty Old Town, Norma Waterson's peerless rendition of the plight of the travelers in The Moving On Song, Paul Buchanan's (Blue Nile) crooning First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, Bombay Bicycle Club s moving version of The Young Birds and Rufus & Martha Wainwright's performance of Sweet Thames Flow Softly. Additional contributors are evidence of MacColl's far-reaching influence and include such impressive names as Paul Brady, Billy Bragg, Eliza Carthy, Martin Carthy, Damien Dempsey, Dick Gaughan, David Gray, Christy Moore, Karine Polwart, and Martin Simpson. Joy of Living: A Tribute to Ewan MacColl pays homage to this fearless, uncompromising character whose influence is still felt not only within but far beyond the folk world.

328
$12.86 USD

From Booklist There are a lot of things wrong with Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. But, first, the good news: mostly—with some exceptions—dates, names, and places aren’t a problem. Context, however, is in the eyes of the beholder. But let’s begin with the opening author’s note. After offering a wide-ranging definition of American exceptionalism that begins with the statement that the U.S. is a “land built on true freedom and individual liberty, and it defends both around the world,” Limbaugh goes on to explain that the Founders believed all people were born to be “free as individuals.” Really? All people? That should give anyone pause who knows something about history. Then it’s on to the narrative. The book’s premise is that a substitute history teacher, Rush Revere, who dresses like his hero, Paul, along with his talking horse, Liberty, can go back in time. This takeoff on the Magic School Bus and Magic Tree House series has none of their charm. The text is wordy, and many of the pages are spent on the banter between Rush and Liberty, occasionally amusing but mostly just filling space, as do the tedious explanations of the way time travel works. The actual historical episodes are marked by commentary. For instance, Rush Revere watches the passengers on the Mayflower and notes that “the hardship they experienced . . . is something modern-day people will seldom, if ever, experience. . . . They hadn’t been spoiled by wall-to-wall carpets, central heating and microwave ovens.” The fact that many modern-day people do experience incredible hardships, albeit different from the Pilgrims, seems not to have occurred to Limbaugh. And let’s not forget the cross-branding. The images of Rush Revere throughout the book are the same as Limbaugh’s logos used on his Two if by Tea website, where he sells, yes, tea. The book ends with the first Thanksgiving. Apparently, the turnaround for the struggling colony came “when every family was assigned its own plot of land to work.” Rush Revere drives home the point that it was after the Pilgrims stopped sharing the profits that success was ensured. Even Squanto adds, “No more slaves to the Common House.” As for factual inaccuracies, Paul Revere never said, “The British are coming!” That was Mr. Longfellow. Despite the book’s numerous shortcomings—as history, as fiction, as comedy—it will generate demand in some libraries, thanks to the author’s celebrity. Order only as that demand dictates. Grades 4-7. --Ilene Cooper About the Author Rush Limbaugh is host of The Rush Limbaugh Show—the nation’s highest-rated talk radio program, with an audience of more than twenty-five million—and the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, Rush Revere and the First Patriots, Rush Revere and the American Revolution, Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner, and Rush Revere and the Presidency.

325
$11.98 USD

With Biff Byford singing as well as he ever has, Paul Quinn and Doug Scarratt making full use of the term ‘shredding’ with their guitars and the lock-steady rhythm of Nibbs Carter’s bass and Nigel Glockler’s drums, the future and the past crash together in an ear-scintillatingly engaging, raucous, melodic-yet-classically heavy ten songs collection which will instantly be hailed as a Saxon classic. The title track, with its delectable twin guitar assault heralding the album’s commencement, gives the listener an instant crack around the chops, whilst traditionalists will be delighted to hear such a perfect marriage of old, classic Saxon with the newer, fresher invective in such riff-fronted fare as “Destroyer” and “Stand Your Ground”, but there are still moments of space and exploration which fans will love. “This one’s a natural progression from Sacrifice,” says Byford, “There’s a bit less rock’n’roll and a bit more ‘heavy’ on it. We wanted to keep focused on a style rather than moving around too much.” Produced by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Exodus Accept) at his Backstage Recording Studios in rural Derbyshire, Saxon were able to hone in and whittle down any excess, finding the sonic space and balance to let Battering Ram’s riffs and melodies get the necessary space to scream front and center, Sneap bringing a crispness to the sound which evokes memories of the early ‘80s without for one moment sounding dated. “Yes, Andy has been in charge of everything with this album, I keep on overview of it all, but he’s done a great job and we’re both pleased with the results. We have a great partnership.” Lyrically, Battering Ram covers a variety of social situations, from the screaming fans who rage at the gig barriers (“Battering Ram”) to the inequalities of taxation (“Tax ’Till You Drop”), as well as engaging in some good old fashioned myth (“The Devil’s Footprint” - a 200 year old tale of people waking up in winter snowfall to see unexplained hoof prints which they followed, looking for an answer in vain). “When I’m writing lyrics I like to switch back and forth between complex things, reality and rock’n’roll,” says Byford, “I thought the whole folklore behind “The Devil’s Footprint” made it great material for a metal song, being that it’s both historic and mythical. “With “Queen of Hearts” I wanted to write something around Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland, and it’s about the chess game that happens in the story. I wanted it to have prog-feeling in the way of its ambiance and mood. Then you have songs like “Destroyer” and “Hard and Fast” which are ‘80s inspired songs with that modern slant on it. I’m a big fan of Marvel comics, and I wanted to write a song around the character Destroyer, and with “Hard and Fast” it’s as the title suggests, about driving fast! I do like to tie the lyric into the song, so if it’s going to be a song about driving fast, well, it has to be a fast, hard song!” There is also the album’s closing cut, haunting, gripping, melancholic tale of the First World War, “The Kingdom of The Cross”, where a poem unfurls the feelings and horrors which comprised this most brutal of global conflicts. “This year is the centenary of the end of the First World War. Nigel had a piece of music which he played on a synthesizer for a couple of years that I really liked. We had an actor (and singer), David Bower from the band Hell, read the poem and I sang the choruses. I didn’t want it to be typical Saxon, so it is just keyboards, bass, me and Dave.” Wonderfully uncompromising, with Battering Ram Saxon have once again established their rightly-venerated credentials as Kings and vanguards of heavy metal music.

342
$21.84 USD

Known as one of the most iconic forces in music history, ELO delivers the new album, 'Jeff Lynne s ELO Alone In The Universe', which will be the first new ELO music in a decade. As with ELO's previous chart-topping albums, Jeff Lynne continues to serve as ELO's producer, songwriter, arranger, lead singer and guitarist. Jeff Lynne was the creative genius behind ELO which sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, had more than 20 Top 40 Hits across the U.S. and the U.K. and received countless awards and accolades. At the time of ELO's formation, Lynne had said the goal was to create modern rock and pop songs. A goal that remains true some 30 years later with the creation of this new material. "Music is such a powerful force in our lives. A good song can make people feel much less alone in this universe. And trying to create one of those songs somehow makes me feel less alone too. My whole life from being that kid with a dream in Birmingham right until today proves how much music can do, said Lynne. The lead single from this album is the beautiful song, When I Was A Boy". Lynne is among the most storied names in music history having created the hit group ELO, and serving as a founding member of the Grammy Award winning supergroup The Traveling Wilburys. He has produced and collaborated with The Beatles, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty and Joe Walsh. In 2015, he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is an active philanthropist for organizations such as St. Jude Research Hospital, MUSICARES and H.E.A.R.T. (Helping Ease Abuse Related Trauma). In September 2014, for the first time in 30 years, Jeff Lynne's ELO headlined BBC Radio 2's "Festival In A Day" in London's famous Hyde Park to a sold-out crowd of 50,000 fans in attendance and nearly a million people tuned in to watch.

$15.60 USD

“Much more than simply an overview of radioactive suppositories and mummy powder, Quackery is a thrilling dive into the human desire to live, to thrive, and the incredible power of belief. Delightful, disturbing, and delightfully disturbing, Quackery shares fascinating medical tales from throughout the ages, including the age we live in. It astonishes with the history of what patients once did in the name of ‘health’ and makes you wonder what we will one day look back on with equal shock.” —Dylan Thuras, coauthor of Atlas Obscura “Fascinating, fun, and occasionally infuriating. . . . a cautionary tale that should resonate even today—a reminder that when it comes to health care, being an informed consumer may indeed save your life.” —Deborah Blum, author of The Poisoner’s Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz-Age New York “Quackery brilliantly educates and entertains through the errors of doctors and scientists of the past. An entertaining read that will shock you and change how you view the health claims on products that we see daily.” —David B. Agus, MD, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller The End of Illness and Professor of Medicine and Engineering, University of Southern California “A bubbling elixir of the comically useless, the wildly hyped, and the just plain weird in would-be cures through history. Peel away those quaint old patent medicine labels and add some modern buzzwords, and marvel at how much has (and yet hasn’t really) changed.” —Paul Collins, author of The Murder of the Century: The Gilded Age Crime That Scandalized a City and Sparked the Tabloid Wars “Next time someone reminisces to you about the good old days, remind them how people used to wash their faces with arsenic, rub on radium liniment, and give each other tobacco smoke enemas. This compulsively readable compendium is a great reminder that medicine in the old days was often worse than the disease—and that there’s always reason to be wary of ‘miracle cures.’” —Bess Lovejoy, author of Rest in Pieces: The Curious Fates of Famous Corpses “Entertaining and informative.” —Publishers Weekly About the Author Lydia Kang, MD, is a practicing internal medicine physician and author of young adult fiction and adult fiction. Her YA novels include Control, Catalyst, and the upcoming The November Girl. Her adult fiction debut is entitled A Beautiful Poison. Her nonfiction has been published in JAMA, the Annals of Internal Medicine, and the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
