Master of Ceremonies
By Joel Grey
Joel Grey, the Tony and Academy Award-winning Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret finally tells his remarkable life story. Born Joel David Katz to a wild and wooly Jewish American family in Cleveland, Ohio in 1932, Joel began his life in the theater at the age of 9, starting in children s theater and then moving to the main stage. He was hooked, and his seven decades long career charts the evolution of American entertainment - from Vaudeville performances with his father, Mickey Katz to the seedy gangster filled nightclubs of the forties, the bright lights of Broadway and dizzying glamour of Hollywood, to juggernaut musicals like "Cabaret," "Chicago," and "Wicked." "Master of Ceremonies" is a memoir of a life lived in and out of the limelight, but it is also the story of the man behind the stage makeup. Coming of age in a time when being yourself tended to be not only difficult but also dangerous, Joel has to act both on and off the stage. He spends his high school years sleeping with the girls-next-door while carrying on a scandalous affair with an older man. Romances with to-die-for Vegas Showgirls are balanced with late night liaisons with like-minded guys, until finally Joel falls in love and marries a talented and beautiful woman, starts a family, and has a pretty much picture perfect life. But 24 years later when the marriage dissolves, Joel has to once again find his place in a world that has radically changed. Drawing back the curtain on a career filled with show-stopping numbers, larger-than-life stars and even singing in the shower with Bjork, "Master of Ceremonies" is also a portrait of an artist coming to terms with his evolving identity. When an actor plays a character, he has to find out what makes them who they are; their needs, dreams, and fears. It s a difficult thing to do, but sometimes the hardest role in an actor s life is that of himself. Deftly capturing the joy of performing as well as the pain and secrets of an era we have only just started to l

Good News About What's Bad for You . . . The Bad News About What's Good for You, The
By Jeff Wilser
Eat more bacon, drink more whiskey, take more naps, lay off all kale, and throw out your multivitamins and standing desk! In The Good News About What's Bad for You...The Bad News About What's Good for You, author Jeff Wilser shares all the research that allows you to celebrate your vices and stop feeling bad about not brushing your teeth after eating that extra slice of cake. This book has two sides to it: one sharing all the good news, the flip side containing all the bad news, making this a fun gifty package that people will want to share and commiserate over with friends. Impeccably researched and told with wit, charm, and a large dose of humour, the author sprints through a broad range of topics - from coffee to green tea, tequila to Vitamin Water, to apologising and swearing. Wilser sifts through each study exposing everything from the merits of procrastination to the downside of yoga. In an age where so many people bend over backward in pursuit of the most healthy and "pure" lifestyle, this book reminds readers to stop needlessly denying themselves pleasure, and brings them back to the tried-and-true golden rule of "everything in moderation."

Dresden: A City Reborn
On 13 February 1945 Dresden, one of the most beautiful and historic cities of Europe, was destroyed by British and American air raids. This book is the first comprehensive history in the English language of this important cultural and historical centre. The book traces the city's evolution from 1206 to its great baroque period under Augustus the Strong, and from the bombing to the present day. The story of Dresden supplies the reader with unique insights into the collapse of the old monarchic order, the resistance of citizens to the Nazi regime, as well as the reaction of the Church and the rise and fall of the GDR. It describes the post-war replanning of the city, from its ideological reshaping under Communism to the liberation of ideas and energies after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Experts in their fields tell the story of Dresden's great musical, artistic, architectural, literary and theatrical traditions which are further illuminated by a series of personal memoirs from eye-witness accounts in 1945 to contemporary reflections by Lord Menuhin and others. Heavily illustrated, this book will be relevant to students of German history and art history or for anyone interested in a wide-ranging introduction to the history of Dresden.

PSYCHEDELIA AND OTHER COLOURS
By Rob Chapman
In the summer of 1965 the informal parties that Ken Kesey was holding at his house in Palo Alto California were about to evolve into what became known as the Acid Tests. These spontaneous anarchic gatherings spread their tentacles far and wide until an entire generation seemed to be under their spell. Fifty years on from the Merry Pranksters multimedia mayhem, acclaimed author Rob Chapman explores in crystalline detail the history, precedents and cultural impact of LSD, from the earliest experiments in painting with light and immersive environments to the thriving avant-garde scene that existed in San Francisco long before the Grateful Dead and the Fillmore Auditorium. In the UK, he documents an entirely different history, and one that has never been told before. It has its roots in fairy tales and fairgrounds, the music hall and the dead of Flanders fields, in the Festival of Britain and that peculiarly British strand of surrealism that culminated in the Magical Mystery Tour. Sitars and Sergeant Pepper, surfadelica and the Soft Machine, light shows and love - ins - the mind-expanding effects of acid were to redefine popular culture as we know it. It's a story that you think you know, but no one has laid out the narrative quite like this before. Chapman documents psychedelia's utopian reverberations - and the dark side of its moon - in a shimmering day-glo portrait where the sublime, the sinister and the just plain silly co-exist in imperfect harmony.

SO THIS IS PERMANENCE
By Ian Curtis
So this is permanence, edited by Jon Savage with a foreword by Deborah Curtis, presents the intensely personal writings of one of the most enigmatic and influential songwriters and performers of the late twentieth century, Joy Division's Ian Curtis. The songs of Joy Division, infused with the energy of punk but steeped in a resigned longing, were born of Manchester in the late seventies - a once flourishing industrial city in decline. They were the songs too of Ian Curtis' inner tragedies, as he battled depression, epilepsy and debilitating stage fright. Ian Curtis committed suicide in 1980, on the eve of the band's first American tour. Interspersed with the lyrics are previously unpublished facsimile pages of Ian's notebooks, which throw his highly emotive lyrics into fascinating relief and cast light on the creative process of this singularly poetic songwriter.

SHREW THAT FLEW
By Julia Copus
One Saturday, in the middle of June, one bright and windy afternoon, all the creatures by Piggyback Wood were getting ready - as fast as they could. There was only a short time left to prepare for the birthday party at Badger's lair. Badger's having a birthday party and Harry and Lil are getting ready, but just as Lil is getting her favourite hat off the washing line to wear, it blows away. Harry says it's gone for good, but Lil says you should never say never "if birds can fly, shrews can, too". An umbrella doesn't work, nor does a fan...and then Deer comes along with a big green balloon!

HER AGAIN
By Michael Schulman
Her Again is an intimate look at the artistic coming-of-age of the greatest actress of her generation, from the homecoming float at her suburban New Jersey high school to her star-making roles in The Deer Hunter, Manhattan, and Kramer vs. Kramer. The book charts Meryl Streep's heady rise to stardom on the New York stage, her passionate, tragically short-lived love affair with fellow actor John Cazale, and her evolution as a young woman of the 1970s wrestling with changing ideas of feminism, marriage, love, and sacrifice. This is a captivating story of the making of one of the most revered artistic careers of our time, offering a rare glimpse into the life of the actress long before she became an icon.
