Equipment for living - on poetry and pop music by Robbins, Michael, 1972- author. Equipment for living - on poetry and pop music

"How can art help us make sense--or nonsense--of the world? If wrong life cannot be lived rightly, as Theodor Adorno had it, what weapons and strategies for living wrongly can art provide? With the same intelligence that animates his poetry, Michael Robbins addresses this weighty question while contemplating the idea of how strange it is that we need art at all. Ranging from Prince to Def Leppard, Lucille Clifton to Frederick Seidel, Robbins's mastery of poetry and popular music shines in Equipm

Estranged - leaving family and finding home - a memoir by Gross, Jessica Berger, author. Estranged - leaving family and finding home - a memoir

A powerful, haunting memoir about one woman's childhood of abuse and her harrowing decision to leave it all behind that redefines our understanding of estrangement and the ability to triumph over adversity.

Reflecting on why Jews have so often been depicted, both

Fighter aces - knights of the sky by Sadler, John, 1953- author. Fighter aces - knights of the sky

When war broke out in 1914, fearless pioneers took to the skies above France in flimsy biplanes. Aerial combat was perceived as glorious and chivalric, but the reality was very different: new Royal Flying corps subalterns in 1917 had a life expectancy of 11 days. The term 'ace' caught on, and daredevil aviators like the Red Baron and Billy Bishop became household names, just as the heroic pilots who defended the skies over England in 1940 are still feted as 'the Few'. The top fighter aces of Wor

In Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Theroux recreates an epic journey he took thirty years ago, a giant loop by train (mostly) through Eastern Europe, Turkey, the Caucasus, Central Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, China, Japan, and Siberia. In short, he traverses all of Asia top to bottom, and end to end. In the three decades since he first travelled this route, Asia has undergone phenomenal change. The Soviet Union has collapsed, China has risen, India booms, Burma slowly smothers, and Vietnam pr
