Deborah Santana is best known for her marriage to music icon Carlos Santana, a 30-year bond that endures to this day. But as a girl growing up in San Francisco in the 1960s, daughter of a white mother and a black father, the legendary blues guitarist Saunders King, her life was charged with its own drama long before she married. In this beautiful, haunting memoir, Deborah Santana shares for the first time her early experiences with racial intolerance, her romantic involvement with musician Sly Stone and the suffering she endured in that relationship, and her adventures in the freewheeling 1960s. Yet it is her spiritual awakening that is the core of this story. The civil rights movement was the foundation of her growth, the Woodstock era the backdrop of her love with Carlos. The couple was drawn indelibly together by a search for truth and spirituality, but while yearning to be filled with God´s light, they were pulled dangerously toward a manipulative cult. They eventually disengage themselves from the guru and reclaim control of their lives, putting their love for each other before the cult´s increasingly strenuous demands. Space Between the Stars is a moving account of self-discovery, rendered in raw, beautiful prose, by a woman whose heart has remained pure even in times of despair. As Deborah Santana talks frankly about her lifelong fight against racial injustice and her deep-seated loyalty to her family, ultimately it is the struggle to remain a spiritual and artistic force in her own right, in the shadow of one of the world´s most revered musicians, that shines through as her most indomitable pursuit. This audio also includes original music from Carlos Santana and Salvador Santana, classics from Saunders King, and an exclusive interview with Deborah and Carlos Santana. 1. Language: English.

Josie O´Leary, 28 years old, beautiful, and Pilates-toned, intends to assume her rightful place in the Hollywood pantheon, as president of a major movie studio. She plots her ascent with a commando´s ruthlessness, and nothing - not an inconvenient husband, her bitchy boss, or even her complete ignorance of how movies are actually made - will stop her. When Josie stumbles across a can´t-miss screenplay she recognizes it as her big chance to became a producer. Not a working-with-writers producer, or a dealing-with-boring-details producer, but an above-the-credits, seven-figure-fee producer. Someone who makes heads turn at the Ivy, who can get a call through to anyone instantly, who reads about her own life in Variety and Vanity Fair. Neurotic New Yorker Carla Trousse moves to L.A. after everything in her life (including her living room ceiling) collapses around her. Overeducated and underemployed, Carla has no idea what to do next; she suspects she has only one real talent, for criticizing. Fortunately, that gift comes in handy at her new job as a script reader, or development girl. She´s the oldest ´´D-girl´´ in her office at the absolute bottom of the movie-industry food chain, yet for the first time in years, she feels a glimmer of optimism. When Josie´s script attracts the attention of Henry Antonelli, a legendary leading man and Hollywood powerhouse, a startling revelation results in an uneasy alliance between Josie and Carla. Mutual loathing turns to grudging respect, then real friendship, as the two women discover the limits of ambition and the boundless rewards of human connection. The Difference Between You and Me is a modern-day comedy of manners, an insider´s take on Hollywood protocol and prestige. With her sly yet generous wit, DeMarco illuminates everyday annoyances and disasters that every woman will recognize - office backstabbing, why-won´t-he-call frustrations, and the unsettling vacuum that can open up i 1.

There´s only so much frustration a guy can handle before he gets a little nutty. For Jude Jamison, his frustration has a name - May Price. She´s everything the former Hollywood bad boy actor came to Stillbrook, Ohio, hoping to find: open, honest, lovable, and full of those luscious curves you don´t find on stick-figure starlets - curves May doesn´t seem to appreciate in herself. Every time Jude tries to get close to the skittish business woman, to take her in his arms, she thinks he´s joking. Joking? Joking does not involve lots of cold-shower therapy. Time for new tactics. If May can´t respond to his sly compliments and sexy innuendos, he´ll just have to spell it out for her. Jude Jamison is going to lay down the law for May Price. And after that, she´ll have no delusions about just how much he wants her.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Frangione.

We build worlds for ourselves wherever we go, writes Ann Beattie. The State We´re In, her magnificent new collection of linked stories, is about how we live in the places we have chosen - or been chosen by. It´s about the stories we tell our families, our friends, and ourselves, the truths we may or may not see, how our affinities unite or repel us, and where we look for love. Many of these stories are set in Maine, but The State We´re In is about more than geographical location and certainly is not a picture postcard of the coastal state. Some characters have arrived by accident; others are trying to get out. The collection opens, closes, and is interlaced with stories that focus on Jocelyn, a wryly disaffected teenager living with her aunt and uncle while attending summer school. As in life, the narratives of other characters interrupt Jocelyn´s, sometimes challenging, sometimes embellishing her view. Riveting, witty, sly, idiosyncratic, and bold, these stories describe a state of mind, a manner of being - now. A Beattie story, says Margaret Atwood, is, ´´like a fresh bulletin from the front: we snatch it up, eager to know what´s happening out there on the edge of that shifting and dubious no-man´s-land known as interpersonal relations.´´ The State We´re In is a fearless exploration of contemporary life by a brilliant writer whose fiction startles as it illuminates. 1.
