    “In these 101 poems Norbert Krapf explores the richness of his ancestry . . . a book that confirms Krapf’s status as one of America’s finest living poets.” —Benjamin Hedin, author of Under the Spell 
     
    A collaboration born of a shared love of music, photography, poetry, and Indiana, this book celebrates the history, literature, and art that informs the present and shapes our identity. Richard Fields’s black and white photos are evocative imaginings of Norbert Krapf’s poems, visual metaphors that extend and deepen their vision. Krapf’s poems pay tribute to poets from Homer and Virgil to Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and Wendell Berry, and to singer-songwriters such as Woody Guthrie and John Lennon. They also explore the poet’s German heritage, question ethnic prejudice and social conflict, and praise the natural world. The book includes a cycle of 15 poems about Bob Dylan; a public poem written in response to 9/11, “Prayer to Walt Whitman at Ground Zero”; “Back Home,” a poem reproduced in a stained glass panel at the Indianapolis airport; and ruminations on the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, “Questions on a Wall.” 
     
    “Pursuing a tri-fold creative concept that unites poetry, art in the form of photography, and music is certainly not a light challenge. Norbert Krapf has mastered it with remarkable virtuosity and once again reinforced his reputation as the pre-eminent German-American poet of the English language.” —Yearbook of German-American Studies 
     
    “Some of Krapf’s poetry is breathtakingly moving. Most of it is very insightful . . . The way he joins history and emotion is wonderful.” —Englewood Review of Books

    “Sobsey truly does deliver the goods with this biography . . . This work is as gloriously comprehensive as it gets on the subject of Chrissie Hynde.” —PopMatters   A musical force across four decades, a voice for the ages, and a great songwriter, Chrissie Hynde is one of America’s foremost rockers. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, she and her band The Pretenders have released ten albums since 1980. The Pretenders’ debut LP has been acclaimed as one of the best albums of all time by VH1 and Rolling Stone. In a business filled with “pretenders” and posers, Hynde remains unassailably authentic. Although she blazed the trail for countless female musicians, Hynde has never embraced the role of rock-feminist and once remarked, “It’s never been my intention to change the world or set an example for others to follow.” Instead, she pursued her own vision of rock—a band of “motorcycles with guitars.”  Chrissie Hynde: A Musical Biography traces this legend’s journey from teenage encounters with rock royalty to the publication of her controversial memoir Reckless in 2015. Adam Sobsey digs deep into Hynde’s catalog, extolling her underrated songwriting gifts and the greatness of The Pretenders’ early classics and revealing how her more recent but lesser-known records are not only underappreciated but actually key to understanding her earlier work, as well as her evolving persona. Sobsey hears Hynde’s music as a way into her life outside the studio, including her feminism, signature style, vegetarianism, and Hinduism. She is “a self-possessed, self-exiled idol with no real forbears and no true musical descendants: a complete original.”
