Summary : The mesmerizing debut novel about driving trucks, loving music, and growing up. A truck driver's daughter who grows up in the front seat of her father's truck, Jo shares her father's love of country music, junk food, and the open highway. Jo's life is a perfect slice of Americana, except that their "open road" is in England, and her father--the gentle, melancholy Bobby Pickering--is from Northern Ireland. The only truly American thing about Jo is her mother, whom she has never met. Jo is twelve when she and Bobby pick up hitchhiker Cosima Stewart, an American country singer whose band is touring England. They become dedicated fans, and Cosima, touched by the unlikely duo, comes to regard Jo with an indulgent, even sisterly, eye. But when Jo is sixteen, Bobby sinks into serious despair and Jo seeks refuge in Cosima and the band. When Bobby disappears, Jo's adoration becomes obsessive as she follows her idol all to the way to California. Here, in the sweltering Mohave Desert and alone for the first time, Jo must face the painful truths of her own life, the mother she has never known, and the father she can't force from her mind. With shades of Zadie Smith and Mark Haddon, Albyn Leah Hall's powerful debut is a page-turning study of what frightens us about one another and ourselves; of how we run away and what we can't, ultimately, escape from.
Summary : Over the years, right from young to old age, we all witness a sea of change in people, particularly from different generations and, hence, a shift in priorities of life and consequent value systems. But the basic emotional needs like peace, happiness, love, etc., still remain the same; and that, too, in all countries, through the means of getting them, have shifted to a great extent with a rapid change in lifestyle. Young people, including kids, these days often fall victim to situation and commit suicide, go through sudden separation/divorce, and also be violent and kill in extreme cases. The major strain nowadays is on all types of relationships like parents and children, husband and wife, lovers and friends, boss and subordinates, among colleagues, etc. The relationship between a woman and man, which is the primary base in life and that all look for, prompted the author to reflect and write life-like stories of four main couples in the backdrop of the narrators own, from different countries and social background and even with cultural differences. They come to know each other in person or over the Net, build a relationship, go through conflicts of interests; and some sustain and even enrich the relationship while some break away due to basic values of life. A relationship is not a deal; it is rather based on intrinsic values like understanding, adjustment, mutual respect, admiration of special qualities ( as each individual has), openness with clear communications, and above all, trust and responsibility enveloped in love. To sever a relationship, there should be enough courage and inner strength to uphold the principle of intrinsic values in our life without sweet coatings. All episodes provide some history and geographic background apart from sociopolitical aspects to understand the mould of each character and their characteristics, while all couples are beaded through the common string of Rhythm of Life!
Summary : From award-winning author Andrea Davis Pinkney comes the story of the music that defined a generation and a movement that changed the world. Berry Gordy began Motown in 1959 with an $800 loan from his family. He converted the garage of a residential house into a studio and recruited teenagers from the neighborhood-like Smokey Robinson, Mary Wells, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Diana Ross-to sing for his new label. Meanwhile, the country was on the brink of a cultural revolution, and one of the most powerful agents of change in the following decade would be this group of young black performers from urban Detroit. From Berry Gordy and his remarkable vision to the Civil Rights movement, from the behind-the-scenes musicians, choreographers, and song writers to the most famous recording artists of the century, Andrea Davis Pinkney takes readers on a Rhythm Ride through the story of Motown.

Summary : This book is kaleidoscope of the lives of Pakistani women, living their daily lives . . . But I had to find the voice to do so, in fact, I had not only to find a voice in a literary sense. I had to learn to speakfirst of all acknowledging that the Pakistani womens experiences had never been represented or acknowledged. We are not recognized for who we are. We needed a vocabulary to bring us out of the shadows. My choice of these particular women was the peculiar mixture of fragility and courage I sensed in them, and a willingness to share their experiences. Initially, they felt they had nothing of any consequence to say. I have lived a very ordinary life, nothing special that is worth mentioning, was their initial response, but as their stories began to unfold revealing a saga of silent metamorphosis; their journey toward self discovery had begun. They had a world to say and the world needed them to say it.

Summary : Liverpool in the 1980s. With prospects for the city's youth bleak, a scheme for unemployed musicians commenced, inadvertently shaping the future for members of Cast, Space, the Lightning Seeds and giving fresh impetus to the idea of song as a saviour for the city. Foremost of the bands to emerge from this ill-fated scheme was The La's. Inspired by a chance meeting with Captain Beefheart, Mike Badger formed the band with the enigmatic Lee Mavers. First they conquered the city, and then on the brink of hitting the big time, and eventually inspiring what would become Britpop, Badger quit to form Americana pioneers The Onset, find international recognition as a sculptor, produce album art and videos for some of the country's biggest bands, before finally co-founding Liverpool's Viper record label (which has recently released its 100th album). Featuring everyone from Arthur Lee to Frank Sidebottom, Jonathan Richman to Half Man Half Biscuit, and above all with new insights into the early years of the great lost Liverpool band The La's, The Rhythm and the Tide is both the personal story of a restlessly creative individual, and a reflection on the ebb and flow of the music scene in the city that he loves.
Summary : In the half-century between 1890 and 1950, a variety of fields and disciplines, from musicology and literary studies to biology, psychology, genetics, and eugenics, expressed a profound interest in the subject of rhythm. In this book, Michael Golston recovers much of the work done in this area and situates it in the society, politics, and culture of the Modernist period. He then filters selected Modernist poems through this archive to demonstrate that innovations in prosody, form, and subject matter are based on a largely forgotten ideology of rhythm and that beneath Modernist prosody is a science and an accompanying technology. In his analysis, Golston first examines psychological and physiological experiments that purportedly proved that races responded differently to rhythmic stimuli. He then demonstrates how poets like Ezra Pound, W. B. Yeats, Mina Loy, and William Carlos Williams either absorbed or echoed the information in these studies, using it to hone the innovative edge of Modernist practice and fundamentally alter the way poetry was written. Golston performs close readings of canonical texts such as Pound's Cantos, Yeats's "Lake Isle of Innisfree," and William Carlos Williams's Paterson, and examines the role the sciences of rhythm played in racist discourses and fascist political thinking in the years leading up to World War II. Recovering obscure texts written in France, Germany, England, and America, Golston argues that "Rhythmics" was instrumental in generating an international modern art and should become a major consideration in our reading of reactionary avant-garde poetry.
