Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain
These lush, rewarding reflections on a woman's passage into midlife are grounded in our intimacy with nature and mortality. Deborah Digges, now in her fifties, looks back in such poems as "Boat" to see younger mothers and their children, and ponders her own "brilliant, trivial unmooring." As she wanders from the garden to the barn and into the woods, she finds her moods mirrored in the calendar of the seasons, making lush music of the materials at hand and accepting the seismic changes in her

Odd Boy Out: Young Albert Einstein
When he was born in 1879, Albert was a peculiarly fat baby with an unusually big and misshaped head. When he was older, he hit his sister, frustrated his teachers, and had few friends. But Albert’s strange childhood also included his brilliant capacity for puzzles and problem solving: the mystery of a compass’s swirling needle, the intricacies of Mozart’s music, the secrets of geometryset his mind spinning with ideas. In fact, Albert Einstein’s ideas were

Albert Einstein: The Man Behind the Theories (Biography)
Albert Einstein: The Man Behind the Theories is a biography of the German-born theoretical physicist who revolutionized the world with his theory of relativity and his mass-energy equivalence, better known as E = mc2. Einstein's special theory of relativity reconciled mechanics with electromagnetism and created a new theory of gravitation with his general theory of relativity. Not only was Einstein a prolific physicist, but he was also a prolific writer with over fifty published scientific papers and also non-scientific books to his credit. Albert Einstein: The Man Behind the Theories is a highly recommended publication for those who are interested in learning about the life of Albert Einstein.
Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side - The Stories Behind the Songs
Lou Reed has been art-rocker, iconoclast, contrary noise merchant, and junkie, yet he's always been fascinating. Only David Bowie, arguably, has re-invented himself as many times as Reed, while ensuring that each image was potent, edgy and dangerous. It's a tribute to Reed's standing that even punk rockers, with their scorched earth policy towards all pre-punk music, had a healthy respect and regard for him. Velvet Underground is one of the all-time greats; but in many people's eyes, Reed has produced his best work solo, after the demise of that band. This groundbreaking book analyzes and celebrates the willful intellect, fierce intelligence, and literary merits of Lou Reed's post-Velvet Underground music.
The Doors (Hardcover)
A fan from the moment the Doors’ first album took over KMPX, the revolutionary FM rock & roll station in San Francisco, Greil Marcus saw the band many times at the legendary Fillmore Auditorium and the Avalon Ballroom in 1967. Five years later it was all over. Forty years after the singer Jim Morrison was found dead in Paris and the group disbanded, one could drive from here to there, changing from one FM pop station to another, and be all but guaranteed to hear two, three, four Doors songs in an hour—every hour. Whatever the demands in the music, they remained unsatisfied, in the largest sense unfinished, and absolutely...
