    It is 1965, and Swinging London is coming into its prime years.  Amid the colour and chaos is a boy in drainpipe jeans, an immaculate sports coat and a half-inch wide tie.  As the lead singer of the Lower Third, his talent is shaping itself into something truly special. His name is Davie Jones. In just over fifty years, his death will be mourned by millions, his legacy the story of the greatest rock star of all time.And, through Bowie's transition from group member to solo performer, drummer Phil Lancaster was by his side.In this riveting - and often very funny - memoir, Phil tells the story of life alongside the insecure yet blazingly talented boy who became Bowie, at an historic crossroad of time and place in music history. What follows is an intimate, personal and important perspective on the genesis of one of the twentieth century's great icons - one that gets under the skin of the man himself, before the personas and alter-egos masked the fascinating figure beneath them.At the Birth of Bowie is essential reading for anyone who knows what happened on Bowie's journey, but wants to understand how, and why, it ever began.

Hill suffered despair and disillusionment with the culture of medicine, culminating in a spiral of depression, alcoholism, and an active suicidal plan. Then while in recovery from active addiction, he lost a colleague to suicide, further revealing the extent of the secrecy and broken systems contributing to an epidemic of professional distress within the medical field. By sharing his harrowing story, Dr. Hill helps identify the barriers and obstacles standing in the way of mental health recovery, while pleading for a revolutionary new approach to how we treat individuals in substance use recovery. In fighting stereotypes/stigma and teaching vulnerability, compassion, and empathy, Hill’s work is being lauded as a road map for better practices at a time when medical professionals around the world are struggling in silence.

    Written in his distinctively dazzling manner, Oscar Wilde's story of a fashionable young man who sells his soul for eternal youth and beauty is the author's most popular work. The tale of Dorian Gray's moral disintegration caused a scandal when it first appeared in 1890, but though Wilde was attacked for the novel's corrupting influence, he responded that there is, in fact, "a terrible moral in Dorian Gray." Just a few years later, the book and the aesthetic/moral dilemma it presented became issues in the trials occasioned by Wilde's homosexual liaisons, which resulted in his imprisonment. Of Dorian Gray's relationship to autobiography, Wilde noted in a letter, "Basil Hallward is what I think I am: Lord Henry what the world thinks me: Dorian what I would like to be—in other ages, perhaps."

    From a Booker Prize-winning author, an “informed and witty” travelogue exploring America, Israel, Lithuania, and the nature of Jewish identity (Publishers Weekly).   Howard Jacobson had been hoping to make a journey to Lithuania to search for his Jewish roots. So when the BBC offered to send him around the globe to report on a variety of Jewish communities, he accepted. The trip he recounts in this memoir takes him to New York City, where tension simmers between Jews and African Americans; to California, where he visits a gay synagogue; to Israel, where he encounters the spectrum of Jewishness from Orthodox right-wing hardliners to tolerant, peace-loving kibbutzniks. And ultimately, to Lithuania, the land of his forefathers, where he discovers that antisemitism still lurks.   “A lively, irreverent but ultimately serious account of a British Jew’s search for his roots.” —Elizabeth Benedict, The New York Times   “Profound and moving.” —Publishers Weekly
