He formed the band with three schoolfriends – and found his life’s purpose. Crisscrossing the country, the Chili Peppers were musical innovators and influenced a whole generation of musicians.
It is instead a compelling story of tiwsue and debauchery, of intrigue and integrity, of recklessness and redemption. Anthony Kiedis is the lead singer of the rock group The Red Hot Chili Peppers, one of the most beloved bands in the world. He lives in the Los Angeles, Ca. She instinctively knew that her brother-in-law’s name would be linked to these horrifying acts of terrorism, and her heart went out to the victims in America. She also knew that her life and the lives of her family would never be the same again.
In Carmen, half Swiss and half Persian, married Yeslam Bin Ladin and found herself inside the complex and vast clan of Bin Laden, part of a society that at that point she neither knew nor understood. Carmen Bin Ladin’s story takes us inside one of the most powerful, secretive and repressive kingdoms in the world. Bring it on Home is a celebration, a cautionary tale and a compelling human drama. Written with the full co-operation of the Grant family and with access to Grant’s private correspondence, business contracts and photographs, this biography features interviews with the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin, and examines Grant’s remarkably close and some suggest unhealthy relationship with Jimmy Page, his troubled relationship with Robert Plant and his great friendship with the late drummer John Bonham.
Stories about how Grant intimidated the producers of The Song Remains the Same and the drug-related excess surrounding Swan Song Records and Grant’s relationship with John Bindon and his extended coterie of Kings Road criminals are told with great candour, while the details of a plot to kidnap Led Zeppelin’s band members’ children by Jamaican gangsters are revealed for the first time.
It also tells the dramatic and bleakly humorous family story of how Grant’s estranged wife, and two children, Helen and Warren, dealt with this unusual and often tumultuous life. Warren Grant discusses, with unflinching honesty, an often-dangerous adolescence spent with a drug-addicted father, surrounded by groupies and dealers, in a house filled with shotguns.
As Warren Grant says now: This special edition features six never-before-published monologues, a new foreword by National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson, a new introduction by the author, and a new afterword by One Billion Rising director Monique Wilson on the stage phenomenon’s global impact.
A landmark work in women’s empowerment, as relevant as ever after a year marked by unprecedented social and political protest in the face of unapologetic racism and misogyny, The Vagina Monologues honours women’s sexuality in all its complexity, mystery and power. Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, this award-winning masterpiece gives voice to real women’s deepest fantasies, fears, anger and pleasure, and calls for a world where all women are safe, equal, free and alive in their bodies.
Seeing it changed my soul. Performing in it changed my life’Kerry Washington. Because so often you can’t. Won’t people turn away if they know the real me? The me that hates my own child, that put my perfectly healthy dog to sleep? The me who thinks, deep down, that maybe The Wire was overrated? For nearly four decades, David Sedaris has faithfully kept a diary in which he records his thoughts and observations on the odd and funny events he witnesses.
Anyone who has attended a live Sedaris event knows that his diary readings are often among the most joyful parts of the evening. But never before have they been available in print. Now, in Theft by Finding, Sedaris brings us his favorite entries. From the family home in Ralegh, North Carolina, we follow Sedaris as he sets out to abthony his way in the world.
As an art student and then teacher in Chicago he works at a succession of very odd jobs, meeting even odder people, before moving to New York to pursue a career as a writer – where instead he very quickly lands a job in Macy’s department store as an elf in Santaland Tender, hilarious, illuminating, and endlessly captivating, Theft by Finding offers a rare look into the mind of one of our generation’s greatest comic geniuses.
Reflecting with gratitude on the exquisite beauty of the intimacy they shared, grappling with the resulting void, and finding solace in caring for her two teenage sons, Alexander channels her poetic sensibilities into rich, lucid prose that universalizes a very personal quest for meaning and acceptance in the wake of loss. For those who have loved and lost, or for anyone who cares about what matters most, this book is required reading. I hadn’t been planning on making Mexico my new home, but the little house on the sea was all that I had left.
Intimate, honest and touching, this is the story of Deborah Rodriguez’s often hilarious journey of self-discovery. Forced to flee her life in Afghanistan, she leaves behind her friends, her possessions and her two beloved businesses: But life proves no easier ‘back home’. After a year living in California where she teeters on the edge of sanity, Deborah makes a decision: So, at the age of forty-nine, she packs her life and her cat, Polly, into her Mini Cooper and heads south to a pretty seaside town in Mexico.
Home is now an unassuming little house on Carnaval Street. Rodriguez’s story speaks to every woman, mother, sister, wife – to anyone who has ever questioned their relationships, their place in the world and the choices that they’ve made. Walter Isaacson tells the story of the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written, nor even the right to read it before it was published.
He put nothing off limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against.
His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.
The wild and passionate lead singer for supergroup The Who is still very much alive. The premature deaths of fellow group members Keith Moon and John Entwistle leaves Daltrey and Pete Townshend as the only survivors of the legendary band. Roger Daltrey’s life is extraordinary from start to finish: For many years he was the vouce of a generation, strutting bare-chested on stage, swinging the mic around like a lariat at The Who’s dynamic concerts.
Drawing on interviews with Daltrey himself, as well as his friends and fellow musicians, this is the most complete and revealing biography of one of rock’s most powerful personalities.
