In the late 1950’s black American music started to fuse the spiritual passion of gospel singing with the gritty sexual drive of rhythm ‘n’ blues. The result was called soul, Ray Charles was its early pioneer, and so this year-by-year soul collection kicks off with his classic 1959 call-and-response song, ‘What’d I Say’.James Brown, Otis Redding, Solomon Burke and Aretha Franklin all carried soul into the golden period of the 1960’s and from then on the genre would be a permanent fixture in the international pop music landscape.So… get ready to enjoy 50 years of pure soul, the electrifying musical hybrid that never went out of fashion!

´Why is there a world rather than nothing at all?´ remains the most curious and most enduring of all metaphysical mysteries. Moving away from the narrower paths of Christopher Hitchens, Roger Penrose and Stephen Hawking, the celebrated essayist Jim Holt now enters this fascinating debate with his broad, lively and deeply informed narrative that traces all our efforts to grasp the origins of the universe. With sly humour and a highly original personal approach Holt takes on the role of cosmological detective. Suggesting that we might have been too narrow in limiting our suspects to God and the Big Bang, he tracks down, among others, an eccentric Oxford philosopher, a Nobel Laureate physicist, a French Buddhist monk, and John Updike just before he died, to pursue this cosmic puzzle from every angle. As he pieces together a solution - while offering useful insights into time, consciousness, and eternity - he sheds fascinating new light on the meaning of existence. A New York Times bestseller on first publication, this new paperback edition provides a much-needed new take on history´s greatest conundrum, in the vein of previous bestsellers like Michael Brooks´ 13 Things that Don´t Make Sense.
Best-selling author William Boyd—the novelist who has been called a ´´master storyteller” (Chicago Tribune) and ´´a gutsy writer who is good company to keep” (Time)—here gives us his most entertaining, sly, and compelling novel to date. The novel evokes the tumult, events, and iconic faces of our time as it tells the story of Logan Mountstuart—writer, lover, and man of the world—through his intimate journals. It covers the ´´riotous and disorganized reality” of Mountstuart’s 85 years in all their extraordinary, tragic, and humorous aspects. The journals begin with his boyhood in Montevideo, Uruguay, then move to Oxford in the 1920s and the publication of his first book, then on to Paris where he meets Joyce, Picasso, Hemingway, et al., and to Spain, where he covers the civil war. During World War II, we see him as an agent for naval intelligence, becoming embroiled in a murder scandal that involves the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The postwar years bring him to New York as an art dealer in the world of 1950s abstract expressionism, then on to West Africa, to London where he has a run-in with the Baader-Meinhof Gang, and, finally, to France where, in his old age, he acquires a measure of hard-won serenity. This is a moving, ambitious, and richly conceived novel that summons up the heroics and follies of 20th-century life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Vance.

TOSH is a memoir of growing up as the son of an enigmatic, much-admired, hermetic, and ruthlessly bohemian artist during the waning years of the Beat Generation and the heyday of hippie counterculture. A critical figure in the history of postwar American culture, Tosh Berman´s father, Wallace Berman, was known as the ´´father of assemblage art,´´ and was the creator of the legendary mail-art publication Semina. Wallace Berman and his wife, famed beauty and artist´s muse Shirley Berman, raised Tosh between Los Angeles and San Francisco, and their home life was a heady atmosphere of art, music, and literature, with local and international luminaries regularly passing through.Tosh´s unconventional childhood and peculiar journey to adulthood features an array of famous characters, from George Herms and Marcel Duchamp, to Michael McClure and William S. Burroughs, to Dennis Hopper and Dean Stockwell, to the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, and Toni Basil.TOSH takes an unflinching look at the triumphs and tragedies of his unusual upbringing by an artistic genius with all-too-human frailties, against a backdrop that includes The T.A.M.I. Show, Sgt. Pepper´s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Easy Rider, and more. With a preface by actress/writer Amber Tamblyn (daughter of Wallace´s friend, actor Russ Tamblyn), TOSH is a self-portrait taken at the crossroads of popular culture and the avant-garde. The index of names included represents a who´s who of midcentury American?and international?culture.Praise for Tosh:´´Tosh Berman´s sweet and affecting memoir provides an intimate glimpse of his father, Wallace, and the exciting, seat-of-the-pants LA art scene of the 1960s, and it also speaks to the hearts of current and former lonely teenagers everywhere.´´--Luc Sante, author of The Other Paris´´This is the story of a kid growing up inside of art world history, retelling his upbringing warts and all. A well-written, fast-moving book that is candid, funny, often disturbing, and never dull.´´--Gillian McCain, co-author of Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk´´TOSH is a delightfully entertaining memoir filled with sly wit and a profound personal perspective.´´--John Zorn, composer´´One could not wish for a better guide into the subterranean and bohemian worlds of the California art/Beat scene than Tosh Berman, only scion of the great Wallace. Tosh has a sly wit and an informed eye, he is both erudite and neurotic, and often hilarious.´´--John Taylor, Duran Duran´´There´s the life?and then there´s the life. With TOSH you can have both. My life, and that of many who sailed with me, was formed by the 40´s & 50´s. TOSH takes you there.´´--Andrew Loog Oldham, producer/manager, The Rolling Stones ´´As the son of artist Wallace Berman, Tosh Berman had a front row seat for the beat parade of the ´50s, and the hippie extravaganza of the ´60s. It was an exotic, star-studded childhood, but having groovy parents doesn´t insulate one from the challenge of forging one´s own identity in the world. Berman´s successful effort to do that provides the heart and soul of this movingly candid chronicle of growing up bohemian.´´--Kristine McKenna, co-author of Room to Dream by David Lynch ´´This is a beautifully written memoir, and I highly recommend it to those who are interested in the Sixties, Topanga Canyon, the Southern California art scene, and for those who wonder what it might mean to grow up as the son of one of our most acclaimed artists.´´--Lisa See, author of The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane
