Listen to this audiobook free with a 30-day trial. Go to http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: The Ecstasy of Influence Subtitle: Nonfictions, Etc. Author: Jonathan Lethem Narrator: Jonathan Lethem Format: Unabridged Length: 16 hrs and 24 mins Language: English Release date: 11-08-11 Publisher: Random House Audio Ratings: 3.5 of 5 out of 31 votes Genres: Bios & Memoirs, Artists, Writers, & Musicians Publisher's Summary: Whats a novelist supposed to do with contemporary culture? And whats contemporary culture supposed to do with novelists? In The Ecstasy of Influence, Jonathan Lethem, tangling with what he calls the white elephant role of the writer as public intellectual, arrives at an astonishing range of answers. A constellation of previously published pieces and new essays as provocative and idiosyncratic as any hes written, this volume sheds light on an array of topics from sex in cinema to drugs, graffiti, Bob Dylan, cyberculture, 9/11, book touring, and Marlon Brando, as well as on a shelfs worth of his literary models and contemporaries: Norman Mailer, Paula Fox, Bret Easton Ellis, James Wood, and others. And, writing about Brooklyn, his father, and his sojourn through two decades of writing, Lethem sheds an equally strong light on himself. Critic Reviews: "Conceptual ambition, sense of purpose and a fans evangelical devotion distinguish this collection from the typical novelists gathering of nonfiction miscellany.....impressively rich....In addition to being a writer who blurs the distinction between genre fiction (sci-fi, detective, western) and postmodern literature (a term he questions), Lethem writes with a commitment to sharing his enthusiasm for whatever obsesses him....While the results illuminate his formative influences and artistic development, they also cast considerable light on the culture at large, which is both reflected in Lethems work and has profoundly shaped it.....Intensifying that intimacy, he shares his complicated relationships.... high ambitions and a strong sense of purpose."- (Kirkus Reviews) "Peppery nonfiction....provocative tour de force....thoughtful and rambunctious....dynamically juxtaposed and connected....to create a jazzy, patchwork memoir....hilarious....fresh, erudite, zestful, funny frolic in the great fields of creativity." (Booklist) Hefty and remarkable.....These byways, all of which make room for eccentric flights as well as proper essays, augment the charm and impact of what Lethem prefers to call an 'autobiographical collage,' a phrase he lifts from Vonnegut. This influence seems only natural, for dominating all is Lethem's prime concern always: the novel....generous....exciting....openhearted, unconventional."

Using Van Gogh's letters as a primary source, the author discusses the artist's life, his approach to his work, and his mental illness. The letters vividly show the artist's life was no bed of roses. Whereas Van Gogh perfectly knew what was sellable, he continued to produce what he considered as honest, truthful art, regardless of current taste. He did not expect the art-buying public to understand the rough appearance of his work. Van Gogh acknowledged that being an artist simply involved struggle, but he believed that one would benefit from adversity, both personally and professionally. "No victory without a battle, no battle without suffering." In Van Gogh's case, it seems to have been a never-ending battle against poverty, isolation, and adversity. Given his circ*mstances - being financially dependent upon his brother Theo, not selling any work, and getting minimal recognition - his achievements are utterly amazing.

Eleven-year-old Fanny Price is "adopted" by wealthy relatives and leaves her life of poverty in Portsmouth for a much better life at Mansfield Park. Dependent, vulnerable, and often ignored, her only true friend in her new family is her cousin Edmund. When the reckless, flirtatious Crawfords arrive at Mansfield Park, Fanny must stand up for her principles in order to protect her heart. Mansfield Park is followed by opinions on the novel by Austen's family and friends, never before heard on audio. Like most writers, Jane Austen was very interested in what her family and friends thought of her books. She wrote down their opinions of Mansfield Park, recording both the bad and the good. These opinions dating from 1814 and 1815 will give solace to any writer whose work has been criticized, and will amuse and delight Austen fans worldwide. "Alison Larkin's narration will captivate listeners from the first sentence. Her delicate voice and perfect English accent sweep the listener back in time, right into the lives of the characters.... Austen's nineteenth-century writing style flows off Larkin's tongue, making the dense passages easy to understand." - AudioFile Magazine Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Thomas Narrator: Nick Landrum Format: Unabridged Length: 9 hrs and 14 mins Language: English Release date: 11-16-17 Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers Limited Genres: Bios & Memoirs, Artists, Writers, & Musicians Publisher's Summary: When the Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to Bob Dylan in 2016, the literary world was up in arms. How could the world's most prestigious book prize be awarded to a famously cantankerous singer-songwriter in his 70s, who wouldn't even deign to make a victory speech? In Why Dylan Matters, Harvard professor Richard F. Thomas answers that question with magisterial erudition. A world expert on classical poetry, Thomas was initially ridiculed by his colleagues for teaching a course on Bob Dylan alongside his traditional seminars on Homer, Virgil and Ovid. Dylan's Nobel Prize win brought him vindication, and he immediately found himself thrust into the limelight as a leading academic voice in all matters Dylanological. This witty, personal volume is a distillation of Thomas' famous course and makes a compelling case for moving Dylan out of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and into the pantheon of classical poets. The most dazzlingly original and compelling Dylan book in decades, Why Dylan Matters will amaze and astound everyone from the first-time listener to the lifetime fan. You'll never think about Bob Dylan in the same way again. Critic Reviews: "At last an expert classicist gets to grips with Bob Dylan. Richard Thomas takes us from Dylan's high school Latin club to his haunting engagement with Ovid and Homer in recent albums. He carefully argues that Dylan's poetry deserves comparison with Virgil's - and Thomas, senior professor of Latin at Harvard and author of some of the most influential modern studies of Virgil, should know!" (Mary Beard) "In Why Dylan Matters, Professor Thomas reveals how Dylan's work transfigures Western literature and history into a magical world of song and performance that secures Dylan's place in a pantheon of literary heroes from Virgil to Eliot. A critical breakthrough that makes a masterful case for why Dylan is the bard of our times." (Andrew McCarron, author of Light Come Shining: The Transformations of Bob Dylan) "Richard Thomas has created a monument to Bob Dylan - and, also, a Rosetta Stone. The erudite and politically engaged Thomas is the perfect guide through the wondrous mystery of Dylan's genius."

It is that something itself." (Samuel Beckett, Joyces friend and secretary, about Finnegans Wake) James Joyce is the high priest of modernist writing who lived a life of endless sacrifice to literature, loaded with poverty and petty humiliations. He blazed the path of the writer as resolute individualist, rejecting all conformity and risking everything, even public shaming, in order to "communicate" over the supine body of language with his enthralled readers. He once remarked to his younger brother Stanislaus, Dont you think there is a certain resemblance between the mystery of the Mass and what I am trying to do? I mean that I am trying...to give people some kind of intellectual pleasure or spiritual enjoyment by converting the bread of everyday life into something that has a permanent artistic life of its own...for their mental, moral, and spiritual uplift. Joyce pioneered modern literature through his use of stream of consciousness, a literary technique that lets readers get straight into the mind of the books characters and stands in stark contrast to Ernest Hemingway's "iceberg" style of leaving things to the readers' imaginations. In his masterpiece Ulysses, Joyce explores several topics and thoughts that go through the mind of one man in Dublin for a day, and he also wrote other critically-acclaimed works such as the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939). He said of his frequent use of Dublin as a setting, "For myself, I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world. In the particular is contained the universal." The Life and Legacy of James Joyce: Pioneer of Modern Literature profiles the life and career of one of America's most famous entertainers.

This is her story - of coming to Christ, of building a career, of admitting who she is, and of how her faith remained strong through it all. At the top of her career in the Christian music industry, Jennifer Knapp quit. A few years later, she publicly revealed she is gay. A media frenzy ensued, and many of her former fans were angry with what they saw as turning her back on God. But through it all, she held on to the truth that had guided her from the beginning. In this memoir, she finally tells her story: of her troubled childhood, the love of music that pulled her through, her dramatic conversion to Christianity, her rise to stardom, her abrupt departure from Christian contemporary music, her years of trying to come to terms with her sexual orientation, and her return to music and Nashville in 2010, when she came out publicly for the first time. She also talks about the importance of her faith, and despite the many who claim she can no longer call herself a believer, she maintains that she is both gay and a Christian. Now an advocate for LGBT issues in the church, Jennifer has witnessed heartbreaking struggles as churches wrestle with issues of hom*osexuality and faith. This engrossing, inspiring memoir will help people understand her story and to believe in their own stories, whatever they may be. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

As lead singer and songwriter for the Velvet Underground and a renowned solo artist, Lou Reed invented alternative rock. His music, at once the height of sanctity and perversity, transcended a genre, speaking to millions of listeners, inspiring a new generation of musicians and forever changing the way we think of that iconic era of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. Throughout his five-decade career, Reed embodied artistic self-awareness and captured the beauty, paranoia and vivacity of his time into an array of hit songs and experimental albums and a larger-than-life persona. With such masterpieces as 'Sweet Jane' and 'Walk on the Wild Side', Reed exerted an influence on popular music rivalled only by the likes of Bob Dylan and The Beatles, and he is recognised to this day as one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century. Now, just a few years after Reed's death, comes the thrilling, provocative story of his complex life. An acclaimed Rolling Stone contributor, Anthony DeCurtis interviewed Reed extensively and knew him well. With unparalleled access to Reed's friends and family and dozens of other intimate relations, DeCurtis brings Reed's story compellingly alive and deepens our understanding of his indelible music. We travel deep into the underground artist clubs, listen along in the studio as the Velvet Underground record their signature work and revel in Reed's relationship with legends like Andy Warhol, Patti Smith and David Bowie. Insightful, revelatory and intimate, Lou Reed is a gripping tribute to a quintessential American icon.

Access to the Antarctic remains largely reserved for scientists, and it is the only piece of earth that is nobody's country. Ice Diaries is the story of McNeil's years spent in ice, not only in the Antarctic, but her subsequent travels to Greenland, Iceland, and Svalbard, culminating in a strange event in Cape Town, South Africa, where she journeyed to make what was to be her final trip to the southernmost continent. In the spirit of the diaries of Antarctic explorers Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton, McNeil mixes travelogue, popular science, and memoir to examine the history of our fascination with ice. In entering this world, McNeil unexpectedly finds herself confronting her own upbringing in the Maritimes, the lifelong effects of growing up in a cold place, and how the climates of childhood frame our emotional thermodynamics for life. Ice Diaries is a haunting story of the relationship between beauty and terror, loss and abandonment, transformation and triumph. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Lupoff - foreword Narrator: Derek Botten Format: Unabridged Length: 8 hrs and 15 mins Language: English Release date: 08-22-17 Publisher: North Atlantic Books Ratings: 5 of 5 out of 1 votes Genres: Bios & Memoirs, Artists, Writers, & Musicians Publisher's Summary: Otto Binder: The Life and Work of a Comic Book and Science Fiction Visionary chronicles the career of Otto Binder, from pulp magazine author to writer of Supergirl, Captain Marvel, and Superman comics. As the originator of the first sentient robot in literature ("I, Robot," published in Amazing Stories in 1939 and predating Isaac Asimov's collection of the same name), Binder's effect on science fiction was profound. Within the world of comic books, he created or cocreated much of the Superman universe, including Smallville; Krypto, Superboy's dog; Supergirl; and the villain Braniac. Binder is also credited with writing many of the first "Bizarro" storylines for DC Comics as well as for being the main writer for the Captain Marvel comics. In later years Binder expanded from comic books into pure science writing, publishing dozens of books and articles on the subject of satellites and space travel as well as UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Comic book historian Bill Schelly tells the tale of Otto Binder through personal letters and interviews with Binder's own family and friends. Schelly weaves together Binder's professional successes and personal tragedies, including the death of Binder's only daughter and his wife's struggle with mental illness. A touching and human story, Otto Binder: The Life and Work of a Comic Book and Science Fiction Visionary is a biography that is both meticulously researched and beautifully told, keeping alive Binder's spirit of scientific curiosity and whimsy. Critic Reviews: "Bill Schelly has done an amazing job of capturing Otto and his family and friends, and explaining in an interesting way why his work was so important and precedent-setting." (Michael Uslan, executive producer of The Dark Knight Rises) "Otto Binder was a kind of titan, a precursor of the gods ...because he came up with basic primordial forms that later writers would perhaps polish to a greater luster. But Binder hewed them out of solid rock. He was mining the raw material." (Alan Moore, author of Watchmen and V for Vendetta) Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com

Several critics have described Rilke's work as inherently "mystical". His writings include one novel, several collections of poetry, and several volumes of correspondence in which he invokes haunting images that focus on the difficulty of communion with the ineffable in an age of disbelief, solitude, and profound anxiety. These deeply existential themes tend to position him as a transitional figure between the traditional and the modernist writers. Rilke was born in the Austro-Hungarian Empire; travelled extensively throughout Europe, including Russia, Spain, Germany, France, and Italy; and in his later years settled in Switzerland - settings that were key to the genesis and inspiration for many of his poems.

You should never quit your day job, but your ultimate goal should be to quit your day job. It's an endless, confusing, and often controversial conversation that, despite our bare-it-all culture, still remains taboo. In Scratch, Manjula Martin has gathered interviews and essays from established and rising authors to confront the age-old question: how do creative people make money? As contributors including Jonathan Franzen, Cheryl Strayed, Roxane Gay, Nick Hornby, Susan Orlean, Alexander Chee, Daniel Jose Older, Jennifer Weiner, and Yiyun Li candidly and emotionally discuss money, MFA programs, teaching fellowships, finally getting published, and what success really means to them, Scratch honestly addresses the tensions between writing and money, work and life, literature and commerce. The result is an entertaining and inspiring book that helps listeners and writers understand what it's really like to make art in a world that runs on money - and why it matters.

Go to http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Remembering Peter Sellers Author: Graham Stark Narrator: Graham Stark Format: Abridged Length: 2 hrs and 39 mins Language: English Release date: 04-27-17 Publisher: Right Recordings Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 1 votes Genres: Bios & Memoirs, Artists, Writers, & Musicians Publisher's Summary: As Peter Sellers' close friend and confidant over many years, actor Graham Stark is in the unique position to record the real story of the man as well as the actor. Graham Stark appeared in 13 films with Peter Sellers, including all the legendary Pink Panther movies, and their close personal and professional relationship led to the many extraordinary adventures chronicled in this lively and entertaining recording. From the public house in London, where the Goon Shows were born, to the exclusive Sardi's restaurant in New York, where Sellers was the toast of the town; from the golden days of radio and variety to the truth behind his involvements with some of the world's most glamourous women, this warm and intimate memoir is packed with personal anecdotes which reveal the many and often surprising sides of the chameleon Sellers, whose own character was as complex and diverse as the legendary scene characters he created. Now available in an abridged form, this candid account of a friendship which lasted from their first meeting in the RAF in 1945 to Sellers' death in 1980 documents the life and times of a true comic genius.

Go to http://hotaudiobook.com/free Title: Gone Subtitle: A Girl, a Violin, a Life Unstrung Author: Min Kym Narrator: Rebecca Yeo Format: Unabridged Length: 8 hrs and 7 mins Language: English Release date: 04-25-17 Publisher: Random House Audio Ratings: 4 of 5 out of 13 votes Genres: Bios & Memoirs, Artists, Writers, & Musicians Publisher's Summary: The spellbinding memoir of a violin virtuoso who loses the instrument that had defined her both on stage and off - and who discovers, beyond the violin, the music of her own voice. Her first violin was tiny, harsh, factory-made; her first piece was "Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star". But from the very beginning, Min Kym knew that music was the element in which she could swim and dive and soar. At seven years old, she was a prodigy, the youngest ever student at the famed Purcell School. At 11, she won her first international prize; at 18, violinist great Ruggiero Ricci called her "the most talented violinist I've ever taught". And at 21, she found "the one", the violin she would play as a soloist: a rare 1696 Stradivarius. Her career took off. She recorded the Brahms concerto and a world tour was planned. Then, in a London café, her violin was stolen. She felt as though she had lost her soulmate, and with it her sense of who she was. Overnight she became unable to play or function, stunned into silence. In this lucid and transfixing memoir, Kym reckons with the space left by her violin's absence. She sees with new eyes her past as a child prodigy, with its isolation and crushing expectations; her combustible relationships with teachers and with a domineering boyfriend; and her navigation of two very different worlds, her traditional Korean family and her music. And in the stark yet clarifying light of her loss, she rediscovers her voice and herself. Contact me for any questions: inforeq17@gmail.com
