Music from Another World Book Review:

It’s summer 1977 and closeted lesbian Tammy Larson can’t be herself anywhere. Not at her strict Christian high school, not at her conservative Orange County church and certainly not at home, where her ultrareligious aunt relentlessly organizes antigay political campaigns. Tammy’s only outlet is writing secret letters in her diary to gay civil rights activist Harvey Milk…until she’s matched with a real-life pen pal who changes everything. Sharon Hawkins bonds with Tammy over punk music and carefully shared secrets, and soon their letters become the one place she can be honest. The rest of her life in San Francisco is full of lies. The kind she tells for others—like helping her gay brother hide the truth from their mom—and the kind she tells herself. But as antigay fervor in America reaches a frightening new pitch, Sharon and Tammy must rely on their long-distance friendship to discover their deeply personal truths, what they’ll stand for…and who they’ll rise against. A master of award-winning queer historical fiction, New York Times bestselling author Robin Talley once again brings to life with heart and vivid detail an emotionally captivating story about the lives of two teen girls living in an age when just being yourself was an incredible act of bravery.

Homesick for Another World Book Review:

A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of 2017 An electrifying first collection from one of the most exciting short story writers of our time "I can’t recall the last time I laughed this hard at a book. Simultaneously, I’m shocked and scandalized. She’s brilliant, this young woman."—David Sedaris Ottessa Moshfegh's debut novel Eileen was one of the literary events of 2015. Garlanded with critical acclaim, it was named a book of the year by The Washington Post and the San Francisco Chronicle, nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award, short-listed for the Man Booker Prize, and won the PEN/Hemingway Award for debut fiction. But as many critics noted, Moshfegh is particularly held in awe for her short stories. Homesick for Another World is the rare case where an author's short story collection is if anything more anticipated than her novel. And for good reason. There's something eerily unsettling about Ottessa Moshfegh's stories, something almost dangerous, while also being delightful, and even laugh-out-loud funny. Her characters are all unsteady on their feet in one way or another; they all yearn for connection and betterment, though each in very different ways, but they are often tripped up by their own baser impulses and existential insecurities. Homesick for Another World is a master class in the varieties of self-deception across the gamut of individuals representing the human condition. But part of the unique quality of her voice, the echt Moshfeghian experience, is the way the grotesque and the outrageous are infused with tenderness and compassion. Moshfegh is our Flannery O'Connor, and Homesick for Another World is her Everything That Rises Must Converge or A Good Man is Hard to Find. The flesh is weak; the timber is crooked; people are cruel to each other, and stupid, and hurtful. But beauty comes from strange sources. And the dark energy surging through these stories is powerfully invigorating. We're in the hands of an author with a big mind, a big heart, blazing chops, and a political acuity that is needle-sharp. The needle hits the vein before we even feel the prick.

Gypsy Music Street Book Review:

It's 1937, the eve of World War II. At twenty-six years old, Rezsi Lehrer leaves Munkacs, a small charming city located deep within a remote corner of the Carpathian mountains and travels alone to the United States. War breaks out and Eastern European borders are sealed. Rezsi's family is trapped in Czechoslovakia and the packages she sends home are returned unopened. When the war ends, Rezsi discovers her parents, two brothers and scores of relatives perished in the Holocaust. Gypsy Music Street is the story of one woman's endless sorrow and guilt she suffers at the loss of her family, the family she left behind "to die alone." Yet she still yearns to return to her town, "the little Paris of the East," to see it just one more time. But after the war, countries borders are redrawn and Mukacevo is no longer located in Czechoslovakia. It becomes completely closed off within the iron grip of the Soviet Union and the political climate is one of Cold War. Mukacevo is off limits for travel. As the years pass, Rezsi reminisces, sharing her longing and grief about the past with her daughter Bobbie. And when she dies an old woman, her dream unfulfilled, Bobbie is driven by her own loss and grief to make this journey home for her mother, and for herself. Adventures in Budapest, Ukraine and Israel make Gypsy Music Street an enthralling memoir of love and loss. Yet, it is also a story of the overwhelming joy a daughter experiences when she travels back in time and discovers her own torn roots.

Me and E Book Review:

"Me and E: A Baseball Odyssey is a reflection on parenting a highly skilled, nationally-ranked and difficult baseball prodigy, told through the author's eyes as he witnessed and participated in the successes and failures of his son playing baseball and growing up in Central Florida. It deals with the changing world of competitive youth sports, over-involved parents, fanatical coaches, the hypocrisies inherent in high school athletics, the college recruiting process and how we teach our kids to grow up and become decent human beings - despite ourselves. It involves well-known sports figures as well as local sports icons with traits and characteristics that everyone will recognize. It's a book about flawed parenting, about living vicariously through a gifted child and learning, finally, that being a good father is as much about letting go as it is about being there. Call it Moneyball meets Everything I Know I Learned in Kindergarten.

Bossmen Bill Monroe Muddy Waters Book Review:

Every field has its "bossman"--the one who sets the style and makes the rules. In bluegrass and early country music the man was Bill Monroe. In the world of urban blues, the man was Muddy Waters. Using their own words and dozens of remarkable photographs by David Gahr, Carl Fleischhauer and John Byrne Cooke, the author compares and contrasts the careers of these two bossmen. Both grew up in remote rural areas. Muddy Waters heard field hollers, church music, jubilees, shouts, string band music, and the raw sound of the delta blues; for Bill Monroe it was square dance music, hymns, old country ballads and the fiddling of his Uncle Pen Vandiver. Both brought their music to the big cities: Bill to Nashville, Muddy to Chicago. Musicians who passed through their bands went on to form bands of their own, giving rise to the worlds of Bluegrass and Chicago Blues. But this is more than a book about music; it is a book about black and white America. In microcosm, it is almost a history of this country; and it sets up striking comparisons that cut deep into our heritage and ways. In the words of Pete Seeger: "Anyone in the world wanting to understand American music could well start right here."

I Am Perfect Book Review:

A song book that highlights that inside everyone there is a perfect and loving heart, and that if we uncover our perfection and recognise it in others we can change the world for the better. The song takes you through the personal journey of a little monster who discovers his self worth is not defined by his physical characteristics or by the definitions placed on him by others, but by how he allows his light and love to shine. Once he understands his own value he is able to see the perfection in others even when they are hurtful. He then goes on to show that if we all recognised the perfection in each other and acted from a place of love we can change the world to a better place. "Let us live the perfection that we are and uncover ourselves to shine like a star. Our potential never stops to spread love on this earth, it is why we are here, it is the reason for our birth."

Live Sound Basics Book Review:

This book is about the fundamentals of live sound engineering and is intended to supplement the curriculum for the online classes at the Production Institute (www.productioninstitute.com/students). Nonetheless, it will be invaluable for beginning sound engineers and technicians anywhere who seek to expand their knowledge of sound reinforcement on their own. Written with beginners and novices in churches and convention centers in mind, this book starts by teaching you professional terminology and the processes of creating production related documents used to communicate with other sound engineers, vendors and venues. Subjects such as Signal Path and AC (alternating current) power safety and distribution are closely examined. These two subjects are closely related to the buzzing, humming and other noise related phenomena that often plague sound reinforcement systems. Chapters include an in-depth review of both analog and digital mixing consoles, their differences and similarities, and the gain structure fundamentals associated with the proper operation of either type of mixing console. Audio dynamic processors such as compressors, limiters and noise gates and their operation are explained in detail. Audio effects like delay and reverb are examined so that you can learn the basics of "sweetening" the mix to create larger and more emotive soundscapes and achieve studio-like outcomes in a live sound environment. Advanced mixing techniques, workflow, and the conventional wisdom used by professional audio engineers are explained so you don't have to spend years trying to figure out how these processes are achieved. Last but not least, a comprehensive review of acoustic feedback, and how to eliminate it from stage monitors and main speaker systems are detailed in a step by step process. This book will be especially helpful to volunteer audio techs in houses of worship, convention centers and venues of all types. It will bridge the gap between the on-the-job training that beginners receive and the knowledge and conventional wisdom that professional sound engineers employ in their daily routine.

Leaves from Fire Book Review:

Simcha Guterman's, Leaves from Fire, is a firsthand account written with the deep sense of comprehension he was documenting the fate of his people. Knowing full well that his life was in danger, Simcha chronicled the occurrences of the Holocaust on long scraps of paper, as they happened right before his eyes. The events described take place in Poland, during the first years of World War II. The author stuffed long paper scraps, written in Yiddish, into bottles and hid in them in different places. One of these bottles was discovered after the war. Simcha Guterman's work has been published and translated into eight different languages, receiving high praise from critics. The book's evocative illustrations were drawn by Yaakov Guterman, the author's son.

To Stand in the Breach Book Review:

In the steamy jungles of West Africa, a Marine Reconnaissance platoon races against time to save the lives of American citizens caught in a bloody civil war. One recon team arrives at a mission only to find they are too late. The missionaries had been burned to death while strung up crucifix style. Realizing that the rebels intend to kill all of the missionaries in the region, the Marines race through the jungle in an attempt to beat the rebels to another nearby mission before they can kill the missionaries there. The Marines arrive just in time to see the guerrillas enter the mission compound and begin killing mission workers. The recon team opens fire and the situation escalates. They successfully push the rebels back into the jungle. Gathering the mission workers, including the mission's doctor, Ellen McKenzie, they flee into the jungle. While on the run, the hospital corpsman, Sean Austin, finds himself struggling with his feelings for the young missionary doctor. Traveling day and night they arrive at the platoon's harbor site. While waiting for helicopters to evacuate the Americans to a waiting ship, the group stumbles onto a large underground crypt left by an ancient civilization. A tropical hurricane forces the Americans to take shelter within the crypt; they discover it is actually a portal to another world. Transported to the middle of a lopsided battle, the group is forced to choose sides and fight against a huge medieval army. Once the great battle is over, the reality of this new world leaves the sojourners from earth conflicted and searching for answers about reality, God, and eternity. Sean is particularly conflicted about his life as a prodigal and his attraction to Dr. McKenzie. Into the Breach is a war of ideals, a war between living a good life and living an obedient life. Lliam Morgan takes the reader through adventure after adventure while unraveling our calling, not to be right, but to be obedient.

The Dairne-Reih haven't been seen in Dionia for generations-their kind and their king, Morgui, banished long ago from haunting paradise. But when creation shows signs of deterioration, the kings of the seven realms converge in the sacred Gvindollion gathering to arrive at one inexplicable conclusion: Morgui has returned. In the hopes of entrusting Dionia's brave history and perilous future to a generation that has never known war, the kings decide to raise up their young sons as an elite group of warriors, known only as the Dibor. Gorn, legendary hero of the First Battle, is commissioned to teach the Dibor the art of war, leading them on a four-year adventure on the Isle of Kirstell. It is Luik, son of Lair, who soon emerges as the warband's spirited front man. But he is not the only one of his peers to grow in power; his dear friend Fane discovers hidden abilities among the Mosfar under the mentorship of Li-Saide of Ot, while Princess Anorra finds that her lifelong tutor knows as much about combat as he does about etiquette. There is little time for the Dibor to enjoy the satisfaction of graduation, however, as a sinister plot is discovered to dethrone Dionia's kings and flatten the capital city of Adriel. The Dibor are summoned to war, along with the rest of Dionia's fighting men. It is before the gates of Adriel Palace that Luik and his army face Morgui's prince, Valdenil, as well as the unending ranks of the Dairne-Reih.
