See A Little Light

Bob Mould, Michael Azerrad

Bob Mould emerged at the epicenter of America's punk rock scene upon forming H?sker D? in 1979. Their music roused a generation.For the very first time, Mould opens up to tell the passionate story of life inside that furnace, creating music that mattered. He details the growth of his own music, from an early love of the Ramones to the making of H?sker D? classics like 'Bed of Nails' and '59 Times the Pain.' Opening up about drug addictions, suicide, what it meant to come out as gay in a heavily hetero music world, and the band's violent implosion, Mould takes us on a whirlwind ride, culminating with his sobriety, his solo career, and creating the band Sugar.A classic story of individualism and persistence, Mould's memoir is an open account of one man's driving force, which altered the shape of American music.

The Good Fairies Of New York

Martin Millar

Morag and Heather, two eighteen-inch fairies with swords, green kilts and badly dyed hair fly through the window of the worst violinist in New York, an overweight and antisocial type named Dinnie, and vomit on his carpet. Who they are, how they came to New York and what this has to do with the lovely Kerry - who lives across the street, and has Crohn's Disease, and is making a flower alphabet - and what this has to do with the other fairies (of all nationalities) of New York, not to mention the poor repressed fairies of Britain, is the subject of this book. It has a war in it, and a most unusual production of Shakespeare's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM and Johnny Thunders' New York Dolls guitar solos. What more could anyone desire from a book?
