When Francesca left me, I didn´t think I could ever recover. But with every passing month, it got easier. And when six months had come and gone, I was finally over it.

From award-winning memoirist and critic, and bestselling author of The Lost: a deeply moving tale of a father and son´s transformative journey in reading--and reliving--Homer´s epic masterpiece. When eighty-one-year-old Jay Mendelsohn decides to enroll in the undergraduate Odyssey seminar his son teaches at Bard College, the two find themselves on an adventure as profoundly emotional as it is intellectual. For Jay, a retired research scientist who sees the world through a mathematician´s unforgiving eyes, this return to the classroom is his ´´one last chance´´ to learn the great literature he´d neglected in his youth--and, even more, a final opportunity to more fully understand his son, a writer and classicist. But through the sometimes uncomfortable months that the two men explore Homer´s great work together--first in the classroom, where Jay persistently challenges his son´s interpretations, and then during a surprise-filled Mediterranean journey retracing Odysseus´s famous voyages--it becomes clear that Daniel has much to learn, too: Jay´s responses to both the text and the travels gradually uncover long-buried secrets that allow the son to understand his difficult father at last. As this intricately woven memoir builds to its wrenching climax, Mendelsohn´s narrative comes to echo the Odyssey itself, with its timeless themes of deception and recognition, marriage and children, the pleasures of travel and the meaning of home. Rich with literary and emotional insight, An Odyssey is a renowned author-scholar´s most triumphant entwining yet of personal narrative and literary exploration.

They say there are no second acts in American lives, and third acts are almost unheard of. That´s part of what makes Brian Wilson´s story so astonishing. As co-founder member of the Beach Boys in the 1960s, Wilson created some of the most groundbreaking and timeless popular music ever recorded. With intricate harmonies, symphonic structures, and wide-eyed lyrics that explored life´s most transcendent joys and deepest sorrows, songs like ´In My Room´, ´God Only Knows´ and´Good Vibrations´ forever expanded the possibilities of pop songwriting. Derailed in the 1970s by mental illness, drug use, and the shifting fortunes of the band, Wilson came back again and again over the next few decades, surviving and - finally - thriving. Now, for the first time, he weighs in on the sources of his creative inspiration and on his struggles, the exhilarating highs and the debilitating lows. I Am Brian Wilson reveals as never before the man who fought his way back to stability and creative relevance, who became a mesmerizing live artist, who forced himself to reckon with his own complex legacy and completed Smile , the legendary unfinished Beach Boys record that had become synonymous with both his genius and its destabilization. Today Brian Wilson is older, calmer, filled with perspective and forgiveness. Whether he´s talking about his childhood, his bandmates, or his own inner demons, Wilson´s story, told in his own voice and in his own way, unforgettably illuminates the man behind the music, working through the turbulence and discord to achieve, at last, a new harmony.

´If I could choose a place to die, it would be in the mountains.´ Clouds from Both Sides is the autobiography of Julie Tullis , the first British woman to climb an 8,000-metre peak - Broad Peak - and the first to reach the summit of K2 , the world´s second-highest mountain.

Tullis demonstrates her determination and self-discipline through training to black-belt standard in both judo and aikido, and never allows financial concerns to keep her away from the high mountains - a place where she felt at peace.

First published in 1986 before her death, and with an additional chapter written by Peter Gillman documenting Tullis´s final, fated expedition to K2, this story is as relevant and awe inspiring today as it ever was. Tullis´s achievements are timeless and her attitudes and opinions far ahead of their time. Clouds from Both Sides is a tribute to the memory of an inspirational woman determined to strive for her dreams, an extraordinary account of her adventures and an exhilarating testament to her courage.
