            Andy Warhol presented himself as being as shallow as critics accused his famous Campbell's Soup can paintings of being. His public persona was droll; he claimed that he silkscreened because it was easier than painting, and that everyone would have fifteen minutes of fame in the f...uture. But who was Andy Warhol really, and how did he come to revolutionize our visual world forever? From his impoverished childhood as the son of Slovak immigrants in 1930s Pittsburgh, to finding commercial success as an advertising illustrator, to his painstaking pivot into fine art to becoming one of the first people to bring a queer aesthetic out into the open; Warhol shows us how deliberately Andy Warhol reflected the changing winds of commercialism, capitalism and celebrity in the 1960s that still underpin our world today. Behind the glamourous Factory setting of superstars, drag queens, musicians and high-society drop-outs, there was a complex man who lived with his mother until the day he died; whose asexual persona obscured a man who was openly gay during a time of great prejudice; who rubbed shoulders with Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lou Reed and Susan Sontag but grappled with crippling lifelong insecurity. Blake Gopnik has spent six years researching Warhol's life and art and reveals a life of contrasts and deliberate artifice hiding great depths. Filled with new insights into the development and impact of Warhol's art and his personality, Warhol asks: was he a joke or a genius, a radical or a social climber? As Warhol would have answered: Yes.

            In 1999, a former dishwasher from Detroit became the most influential music artist in the world. He was a fish out of water, a white artist creating powerful art in a black medium, telling stories with verbal dexterity, nimble wit and an honest that shocked the world. Eminem chan...ged the landscape of music and pop culture as we know it. Then, in 2006, at the height of his fame and as one of the biggest-selling artists of all time, Eminem all but disappeared. Beset by non-stop controversies, bewildering fame, a debilitating drug problem and personal tragedies, he became a virtual recluse, withdrawing to his Detroit area compound. He struggled with weight gain and a prescription pill addiction that resulted in an overdose that nearly took his life. Over the next five years, he got sober, relapsed and finally got clean, before triumphantly returning to the top. Rhyme and Reason picks up where rock journalist Anthony Booza's bestselling Whatever You Say I Am left off, capturing Eminem's wilderness years in his own words and through the insights of those closest to him. Chronicling the music, personal and spiritual growth of one of music's most enduring and enigmatic artists, this is an intimate portrait of an incredibly private man known by many to be the greatest rapper alive.

            From the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids and M Train, a profound, beautifully realized memoir in which dreams and reality are vividly woven into a tapestry of one transformative year. Following a run of New Year's concerts at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore, Pa...tti Smith finds herself tramping the coast of Santa Cruz, about to embark on a year of solitary wandering. Unfettered by logic or time, she draws us into her private wonderland, with no design yet heeding signs, including a talking sign that looms above her, prodding and sparring like the Cheshire Cat. In February, a surreal lunar year begins, bringing with it unexpected turns, heightened mischief, and inescapable sorrow. In a stranger's words, Anything is possible: after all, it's the year of the monkey. For Patti Smith - inveterately curious, always exploring, tracking thoughts, writing the year evolves as one of reckoning with the changes in life's gyre: with loss, aging, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America. Smith melds the Western landscape with her own dreamscape. Taking us from Southern California to the Arizona desert; to a Kentucky farm as the amanuensis of a friend in crisis; to the hospital room of a valued mentor; and by turns to remembered and imagined places - this haunting memoir blends fact and fiction with poetic mastery. The unexpected happens; grief and disillusionment. But as Patti Smith heads toward a new decade in her own life, she offers this balm to the reader: her wisdom, wit, gimlet eye, and above all, a rugged hope of a better world. Riveting, elegant, often humorous, illustrated by Smith's signature Polaroids, Year of the Monkey is a moving and original work, a touchstone for our turbulent times.
