            Janis: Her Life and Music

            It's been said Janis Joplin was second only to Bob Dylan as the `creator-recorder-embodiment of her generation's mythology'. But how did a middle-class girl from Texas become a '60s countercultural icon? Janis' parents doted on her and promoted her early talent for art. But the a...rrival of a brother shattered the bond she had with her intellectual maverick of a father, an oil engineer. And her own maverick instincts alienated her from her socially conformist mother. That break with her parents, along with the rejection of her high school peers, who disapproved of her beatnik look and racially progressive views, and wrongly assumed she was sexually promiscuous, cemented her sense of herself as an outcast. She found her tribe with a group of offbeat young men a year ahead of her, who loved her intellectual curiosity, her passion for conversation, and her adventurous search for the blues. Although she never stopped craving the approval of her parents and hometown, she left Port Arthur at seventeen determined to prove she could be loved. She tried college twice, and dropped out both times. She ran off to California, but came back when her heavy drug use scared her into it. She almost signed up for a life as a domesticated, hang-the-curtains wife. But instead, during a second stint on the West Coast, she launched a career that would see her crowned the queen of rock and roll. What no one besides Holly George-Warren has captured in such intimate detail is the way Janis Joplin teetered between the powerful woman you hear in her songs and the little girl who just wanted to go home and feel emotionally safe there. The pain of that dichotomy fuelled her music - and ultimately killed her.

            1960. The world is dancing on the edge of revolution, and nowhere more so than on the Greek island of Hydra, where a circle of poets, painters and musicians live tangled lives. Forming within this circle is a triangle: its points the magnetic, destructive writer Axel Jensen, his ...dazzlingly beautiful wife Marianne Ihlen, and a young Canadian poet named Leonard Cohen. Into their midst arrives teenage Erica, with little more than a bundle of blank notebooks and her grief for her mother. Settling on the periphery of this circle, she watches, entranced and disquieted, as a paradise unravels. Burning with the heat and light of Greece, A Theatre for Dreamers is a spellbinding novel about utopian dreams and innocence lost - and the wars waged between men and women on the battlegrounds of genius.

            In 1999, a former dishwasher from Detroit became the most influential music artist in the world. He was a fish out of water, a white artist creating powerful art in a black medium, telling stories with verbal dexterity, nimble wit and an honest that shocked the world. Eminem chan...ged the landscape of music and pop culture as we know it. Then, in 2006, at the height of his fame and as one of the biggest-selling artists of all time, Eminem all but disappeared. Beset by non-stop controversies, bewildering fame, a debilitating drug problem and personal tragedies, he became a virtual recluse, withdrawing to his Detroit area compound. He struggled with weight gain and a prescription pill addiction that resulted in an overdose that nearly took his life. Over the next five years, he got sober, relapsed and finally got clean, before triumphantly returning to the top. Rhyme and Reason picks up where rock journalist Anthony Booza's bestselling Whatever You Say I Am left off, capturing Eminem's wilderness years in his own words and through the insights of those closest to him. Chronicling the music, personal and spiritual growth of one of music's most enduring and enigmatic artists, this is an intimate portrait of an incredibly private man known by many to be the greatest rapper alive.
