Miles to Go is a frank and intimate exploration of Miles Davis' eccentric working life, drug habits, paranoia, depression, and subsequent recovery. Murphy explores Davis' troubled relationship with his children and the controversial role Cicely Tyson played in his life. The book also delves into the dynamics that made Davis' band work so well together, placing Davis' work in a historic, literary, and musical framework. Willie Nelson, Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendrix, and a very unlikely Mother Teresa all have walk-on parts in this engaging, intelligent, and often hilarious narrative. Miles to Go takes us from the small seedy jazz clubs that Davis frequented to the world tours, and then finally to Davis' triumphant return with his celebrated concerts at Lincoln Center in the early 1980s. 1.

Cousin Rosamund unfolds the final chapters of the saga that began with The Fountain Overflows, Rebecca West's acknowleged masterpiece, and continued with This Real Night. As the glitter of the 1920s gives way to the Depression, Rose and Mary find themselves feted and successful pianists. But their happiness is diminished by their cousin's unfathomable marriage to a man they perceive as grotesque. Lacking her cousin Rosamund's intuitive understanding, Rose looks to the surrogate wisdom of Mr Morpurgo, while quiet days with Aunt Lily and the Darcys at their pub on the Thames offer respite from the tensions of foreign concert tours. With approaching middle age Rose gains in perspective. Yet the most exciting development still awaits her: the discovery of and delight in her own sexuality. 1. Language: English.

Five decades in the music industry, 100 albums, 10 Grammys, the Kennedy Center Honors, and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Add high-profile activism for the legalisation of marijuana, the foundation of a groundbreaking philanthropic organisation, and a much-publicised personal life - Willie Nelson's is a story like no other. Born during the Great Depression in 1933 and raised by his grandparents, he began singing in dance halls and honky-tonks at the age of 13 as an escape from working as a cotton picker in the fields of Arkansas. He went on to write some of the most popular country songs of all time and to record some classic versions of others, including "Crazy", "Bring Me Sunshine", "Always on My Mind", and "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain". An American icon who still tours extensively and headlines music festivals, Willie Nelson and his music have found their way into the hearts and minds of fans all over the world. Now 81 years of age, Nelson leaves no experience or moment unturned as he shares the full story. From his drive to write music to the women in his life; from his collaborations to his bankruptcy to the foundation of Farm Aid, Nelson shares, in his distinct voice, soaring highs and painful lows.

Back in 2011 when Tom Brown asked me to pick the series that would best launch the Will Murray Pulp Classics line of audiobooks, that was an easy one: The Spider! Nothing screamed pulp action like the Master of Men. Since then, we've released stories from different years. A new question has been raised: Where does an interested customer start if he or she is new to the Spider? That was a puzzler. So we recorded a new release - the perfect entry point for old and new Spider fans alike. Ripped from the March 1934 issue of the magazine, Citadel of Hell was the sixth Spider novel Novell W. Page penned, and one of his early tours de force. It opens with a wild car chase through the canyons of Manhattan that leads to the first of several running battles in which Richard Wentworth, both in and out of his Spider disguise, takes on Red Mask and his Food Destroyers as they bring New York City to its knees through a vicious campaign of arson and starvation. This is the novel that introduced the Depression-era character of Tito Caliepi, the hunchbacked street-corner violinist disguise that over the next year or so of the series metamorphosed into the twisted, fearsome figure of the Spider who terrorized the underworld for ten unrelenting years. So if you've never listened to a Spider audiobook - even if you have - and you're looking to jump aboard, we highly recommend Citadel of Hell, one of the great fast-moving Spider novels of 1934. For this special occasion, we told voice actor Nick Santa Maria to crank it up and give it his all. And he sure does! This exciting audiobook also includes two short stories, "Killer's Knout" by Anson Hatch and G. T. Fleming Roberts' "The Standing Corpse". Citadel of Hell is an unforgettable excursion into the righteous madness that was the Spider, Master of Men! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Santa Maria.

From the foreword by Ken Mansfield: "There are many stories about Waylon...the family man, the creative genius man, the quiet man, the king-of-the-six-day-roar man, the uncommon man, the legendary man, the bad-ass man.... They are all in this book." In a signed copy of his autobiography, Texas-born country "outlaw" icon Waylon Jennings penned a personal note to his son Terry: "I did my best. Now it's your turn." Two decades later, Terry Jennings finally completes the true story of his father's remarkable, unvarnished life with Waylon: Tales of My Outlaw Dad. Born when Waylon was only 19, Terry came of age just as Waylon's career hit the stratosphere with hits like "I've Always Been Crazy" and "Good Hearted Woman", one of his famous Willie Nelson duets. Terry dropped out of high school and joined his dad on tour, and the two became more like brothers than father and son. On the road they toured with legends like Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, and Jessi Colter, Waylon's fourth and final wife. Together father and son led a hard-partying lifestyle centered around music, women, and drugs. Waylon's success - critical acclaim, best-selling albums, sold-out tours, and even TV stardom on The Dukes of Hazzard - was at times eclipsed by his demons, three divorces, crippling debt, and a depression that Terry traces to the premature death of Buddy Holly. (Waylon was supposed to be on Holly and Ritchie Valens' doomed flight.) Through it all Terry worked on the touring crew, helped manage Waylon's career, and became one of his father's closest confidants. Debunking myths and sharing incredible never-before-told stories, this book is a son's loving and strikingly honest portrait of his father, "the greatest outlaw country musician to grace this earth" and an unlikely but devoted family man. Waylon: Tales of My Outlaw Dad will resonate for generations of fans. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Ryan Grant.
