📒 ✍ Легс Макнил
📝 Book Synopsis : «Прошу, убей меня!» — собрание правдивых скандальнейших историй из уст в уста от непосредственных участников событий, отражающих процесс становления, расцвета и агонии американской панк-сцены, начиная со взрывной деятельности «Фабрики» Энди Уорхола и Velvet Underground, минуя рок-н-ролльных отморозков MC5 и The Stooges Игги Попа, исступленных поэтов Патти Смит и Ричарда Хелла, эпатаж New York Dolls, драйв Ramones и кончая арт-провокациями Малькольма Макларена и трагедией Сида Вишеса. Документальный роман – «отчет о проделанной работе» в духе «секса, наркотиков и рок-н-ролла», повествование о ярких безумных жизнях и ранних безвременных уходах, невиданных взлетах и столь же стремительных падениях. Как говорил Егор Летов: «Эта книга обязательно должна быть на столе у всех наших».

📒Please Kill Me ✍ Legs McNeil
📝Please kill me Book Synopsis : Please Kill Me est le fruit (vénéneux) de centaines d'heures d'entretiens avec ceux qui ont animé l'un des mouvements culturels et musicaux les plus détonants de la fin du vingtième siècle : le punk-rock américain. Réalisé sous forme de montage nerveux, extrêmement vivant et souvent impitoyablement drôle ou tragique, ce livre dans lequel les voix se répondent rarement pour s'accorder nous offre une plongée incroyable dans la vie quotidienne pleine de bruit et de fureur, de drogues, de catastrophes, de sexe et de poésie (parfois) du Velvet Underground, des Stooges d'Iggy Pop, du MC5, des New York Dolls et des Heartbreakers de Johnny Thunders, de Patti Smith, de Television, des Ramones, de Blondie et de dizaines d'autres. Avec leur gouaille et leur verve redoutables ou leur humour pince-sans-rire, les acteurs ressuscitent pour nous les anecdotes les plus délirantes des différentes époques de leur vie, font revivre ces personnages attachants et/ou détestables (avec des scènes d'anthologie à tous les chapitres), à tel point qu'on a l'impression de partager avec eux ce quotidien insensé de galères en tout genre, qu'on étouffe de rire à l'évocation des frasques d'Iggy Pop déchaîné ou d'un impayable Dee Dee Ramone ; ou qu'on ravale ses larmes à celle de la fin calamiteuse d'un Johnny Thunders ou d'un Jerry Nolan. L'enchaînement irrévérencieux des points de vue provoque des effets comiques souvent irrésistibles, puisqu'ici, comme l'indique le sous-titre, aucune censure n'a cours les amitiés indéfectibles côtoient les antipathies persistantes et les amours explosives (Connie et Dee Dee, Sid et Nancy). Personne ne semble pourtant avoir la moindre honte à dévoiler ce qui fut bien souvent un mode de vie extrême, disons extrêmement rock'n'roll, moins centré sur l'image que le punk anglais et dédié avant tout à une certaine forme d'innocence paradoxale, refusant aussi bien les idéaux peace and love éculés des années 60 que la culture de l'argent roi qui se profilait avec l'arrivée des années 80. Mais cette innocence verse un lourd tribut à ses excès (overdoses, coups de couteau, prostitution) et manipule la dérision comme une arme de destruction massive. Please Kill Me se lit comme un roman à plusieurs voix, rapide à couper le souffle comme une chanson des Ramones.
📒Please Kill Me Den Ocensurerade Historien Om Punken ✍ Legs McNeil
📝Please Kill Me Den ocensurerade historien om punken Book Synopsis : »Den bästa bok som skrivits om punkhistorien.« | Jan Gradvall »En av de bästa rockböcker som någonsin skrivits.« | Time Out »Gör för Ramones vad lärjungarna gjorde för Jesus.« | L. A. Weekly Please Kill Me är den definitiva dokumentationen av den uppkäftigaste, mest respektlösa, vanvördigaste, mest nihilistiska av poprörelser. Detta är rannsakningen av - och hyllningen till - punken, från dess rötter under de sista dagarna av Andy Warhols konstnärliga välde och rockscenen vars epicentrum var klubbarna CBGB och Maxs Kansas City i New York, fram till dess sista suck på åttiotalets kommersiella rockarena. Iggy Pop, Danny Fields, Dee Dee and Joey Ramone, Malcolm McLaren, Jim Carroll, samt en rad andra legendariska artister och personligheter bidrar här med sina röster. Vi möter band som Ramones, MC 5, Patti Smith, Television, Blondie och Sex Pistols. Boken är skriven av dem som var där när det hände, ja, skapade rörelsen från första början. Please Kill Me - den ocensurerade historien om punken [Please Kill Me - The Uncensored Oral History of Punk, 1996] är en rockboksklassiker, en bok som i hög grad påverkat hur rockdokumentärer och -biografier görs och skrivs. I svensk översättning av Dan Andersson. LEGS MCNEIL [f. 1956] är en amerikansk musikjournalist och författare. Legendarisk som en av grundarna av Punk Magazine [1976-79], tidskriften som myntade själva begreppet »punk«. Det var McNeil själv som en gång föreslog ordet. Hans spalt i New York-tidskriften Vice har hundratusentals läsare varje vecka. GILLIAN MCCAIN [f. 1966] är en kanadensisk författare och poet. Hon har tillsammans med Legs McNeil skrivit flera innovativa dokumentära böcker. Please Kill Me - den ocensurerade historien om punken har kallats den bäst säljande punkboken i historien.

📒But Is It Garbage ✍ Steven L. Hamelman
📝But is it Garbage Book Synopsis : Trash has been blowing across the rock'n'roll landscape since the first amplified guitar riff tore through American mass culture. Throwaway tunes, wasted fans, crappy reviews, junk bins of remaindered albums: much of rock's quintessence is handily conveyed in terms of disposability and impermanence. Steven L. Hamelman sums up these rubbishy affinities as rock's "trash trope." Trash is an obvious physical presence on the rock scene -- think of Woodstock's littered pastures or the many hotel rooms redecorated by the Who. More intriguingly, Hamelman says, trash is the catalyst for a powerful mode of rock composition and criticism. It is, for instance, both cause and effect when performers like the Ramones or Beck at once critique junk culture and revel in it. But Is It Garbage? spills over with challenging insights into how rock's creators, critics, and consumers transform, and are transformed by, trash as a fact and a concept. In the music's preoccupation with its own trashiness readers will perceive a wellspring of rock innovation and inspiration -- one largely overlooked and little understood until now.

📒Mom And Me And Mom ✍ Maya Angelou
📝Mom and Me and Mom Book Synopsis : 'In the first decade of the twentiety century, it was not a good time to be born black, or woman, in America.' So begins this stunning portrait of Vivian Baxter Johnson: the first black woman officer in the Merchant Marines, purveyor of a gambling business and rooming house, and mother to one of our most cherished literary treasures. Anyone who's read the classic, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, knows Maya Angelou was raised by her paternal grandmother in Stamps, Arkansas. In Mom & Me & Mom, Angelou details what brought her mother to send her away and unearths the well of emotions Angelou experienced long afterward as a result. While Angelou's six autobiographies tell of her out in the world, influencing and learning from statesmen and cultural icons, Mom & Me & Mom shares the intimate, emotional story about her own family.

Her world has always been dark, but he might be able to change everything... Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a violent attack to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods--where no one could ever hurt her again. When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more--the joy she has denied herself for so long. When Helen's demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her. Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen's grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever? Clarity 2: Helen Winters was living a lonely existence when the charming Dr. Liam Larson coaxed her out of solitude with the promise of healing her sightless eyes. She was hopeful at the prospect of gaining vision for the first time and being reunited with her family. She was also growing somewhat fond of the persuasive young doctor. For the first time in years, she was being magnetically drawn to a new friend... Then everything came crashing down. Plunged into a hellish nightmare, Helen is forced to face the same evils she ran away to escape so long ago. She is unprepared to have her hopes crushed and her peace destroyed. She finds herself living in constant terror and drowning in fear--and Liam's voice is the only thing that can keep her afloat. His comforting touch becomes the only light in her pitch-black darkness. Helen has always been a tough girl who relied only on herself. But this time, she can't survive alone. Due to the horrors of her past, Helen has promised herself not to trust anyone. When her life becomes unbearable, how can she trust Liam enough to let him save her? Clarity 3: After many years of darkness, Winter never thought that she'd be happy or safe again. Her whole world changed when she met Liam Larson, a charming young doctor determined to be her knight in shining armor. When a brutal night unleashes vicious reminders of her past, Winter must struggle to hold on to the little bit of happiness she has found. When everything begins to fall apart, Liam's strength and kindness might not be enough to save her. Battling with the betrayal of her family, terrifying nightmares, and frequent reminders of her enemy that make daily life difficult, Winter's first instinct is to run away. She is tired of being the victim and living in a cruel, crowded city where she doesn't feel like she belongs. But Liam promises her that if she only trusts him, he can change everything. And that's exactly what he attempts to do, starting with an operation to heal her eyes, and then her heart...

📒The Curious Tale Of Mandogi S Ghost ✍ Sok-pom Kim
📝The Curious Tale of Mandogi s Ghost Book Synopsis : A central work of postwar Japanese fiction, The Curious Tale of Mandogi's Ghost incorporates Korean folk tales, ghost stories, and myth into a phenomenal depiction of epic tragedy. Written by a zainichi, a permanent resident of Japan who is not of Japanese ancestry, the novel inventively imagines a long-supressed event in Japanese colonial history-the Cheju Uprising of 1948-and captures in style and substance the predicament of Koreans living under Japanese rule. Kim Sok-pom tells the story of Mandogi, a young priest living on the island of Cheju-do. Mandogi becomes unwittingly involved in the Four-Three Incident of 1948, in which the South Korean government brutally suppressed an armed peasant uprising and purged Cheju-do of communist sympathizers. Although Mandogi is sentenced to death for his part in the riot, he survives (in a sense) to take revenge on his enemies and fully commit himself to the resistance. Mandogi's indeterminate, shapeshifting character is emblematic of colonialism's outsized impact on both ruler and ruled. One of the most significant zainichi novels to date, The Curious Tale of Mandogi's Ghost relates the trauma of a long-forgotten history and its indelible imprint on Japanese and Korean memory.
