    The Birth of Tragedy

    The Birth of Tragedy from the Spirit of Music (German: Die Geburt der Tragödie aus dem Geiste der Musik) is an 1872 work of dramatic theory by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. It was reissued in 1886 as The Birth of Tragedy, Or: Hellenism and Pessimism (Die Geburt der Tragödie, Oder: Griechentum und Pessimismus). The later edition contained a prefatory essay, An Attempt at Self-Criticism, wherein Nietzsche commented on this earliest book.
    Nietzsche found in classical Athenian tragedy an art form that transcended the pessimism and nihilism of a fundamentally meaningless world. The Greek spectators, by looking into the abyss of human suffering and affirming it, passionately and joyously affirmed the meaning of their own existence. They knew themselves to be infinitely more than petty individuals, finding self-affirmation not in another life, not in a world to come, but in the terror and ecstasy alike celebrated in the performance of tragedies.

    Carol Bundy was looking for love. She’d been through three husbands, two boyfriends — and then she found Doug Clark. He was perfect. He was handsome, spoke French, and Doug was a sexual athlete.  
    He was everything Carol wanted. 
    In June 1980, Carol and Doug started killing prostitutes on Sunset Strip. 
    Sexual Killing: A Shocking True Crime Story follows the stone-cold serial killing of Carol Bundy and Doug Clark during the summer of 1980. 
    Carol was willing to do anything for Doug. She seduced an eleven-year-old neighbor into their bed, painted the decapitated head of one of their victims so Doug could have sex with it, and helped him dispose of headless bodies. 
    Oh, Doug loved it! Did he love Carol? Did it matter?  Carol was doing whatever Doug told her to do.  
    She was a nurse. Carol was all about saving lives, not taking lives. 
    Carol knew she was doing wrong. She was doing murder. Carol called the cops. They didn’t believe her. So, she went to her ex-boyfriends for help. One of them survived. One of them didn’t. 
    Carol just wanted love. How far would she go to keep the man of her dreams? What if she got as hooked on sex and killing as he was? Would Carol ever be able to stop?

    In this long-awaited book Donald Trelford recalls his adventures and misadventures during nearly sixty years in journalism. Described as the ‘Rocky Marciano of newspaper politics’, he fought off politicians, owners and predators over a quarter-century at The Observer, including Rupert Murdoch, who said afterwards: ‘I made the mistake of underestimating Donald Trelford. 
    One owner sold The Observer because the editor refused to bow to pressure to support Margaret Thatcher. Another tried to sack him for writing the first report of atrocities committed by Robert Mugabe’s forces in Zimbabwe. He tells for the first time the inside story of his complex relationship with Tiny Rowland – often tense, sometimes hilarious - and about his role in the notorious Pamella Bordes affair. He recalls how he was held at gunpoint by the FBI and strip-searched by the KGB. How a black dictator poked him in the chest and yelled: ‘Keep out of my politics, white man. 
    While he was editor, The Observer won more press awards than any other newspaper. Trelford himself was described by Peter Preston, the former Guardian editor, as “a crusader… multi-talented, hands-on, a master of sport as well as news, shrewd and decisive.” Written with style and humour, this is a compelling account of an important period in the history of the British press.
