DEVOTION (Hardcover 1st. - Signed by Patti Smith)

By SMITH, PATTI

New Haven, CT.: Yale University Press, 2017. Book. Fine. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. HB - 1st. Print - Signed by Patti Smith on ffep - FINE/FINE - From the renowned artist and author Patti Smith, an inspired exploration of the nature of creative invention. Patti Smith first presents an original and beautifully crafted tale of obsession-a young skater who lives for her art, a possessive collector who ruthlessly seeks his prize, a relationship forged of need both craven and exalted. She then takes us on a second journey, exploring the sources of her story. We travel through the South of France to Camus's house, and visit the garden of the great publisher Gallimard where the ghosts of Mishima, Nabokov, and Genet mingle. Smith tracks down Simone Weil's grave in a lonely cemetery, hours from London, and winds through the nameless Paris streets of Patrick Modiano's novels. Whether writing in a café or a train, Smith generously opens her notebooks and lets us glimpse the alchemy of her art and craft in this arresting and original book on writing....

The RAVEN (Hardcover 1st. - Signed by Lou Reed)

By REED, LOU

New York: Grove Press, 2003. Book. Illus. by SCHNABEL, JULIAN (photographs). Fine. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. HB - 1st. Print - FINE/FINE (As New) - Signed by Lou Reed on title page - An iconoclastic genius offers a haunting exploration of the work of Edgar Allan Poe. One of the most influential and innovative recording artists of the past three decades, Lou Reed has always offered a shrewd view of life in the big city in all its colors. It is no surprise, then, that he considers Edgar Allan Poe a spiritual forefather. In The Raven, Reed immerses himself in Poe's enigmatic world and sets out to reimagine his work to mesmerizing effect. In 2001 Lou Reed, legendary theater director Robert Wilson, and an all-star cast presented the musical POEtry at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Reed's subsequent studio adaptation, The Raven, has been hailed as one of his more daring and challenging albums. Here, accompanied by photographs by the acclaimed artist and director Julian Schnabel, is the definitive text of the CD release. The Raven includes Reed's distinctive takes on Poe's most celebrated works, as well as song lyrics written for the musical. The Raven is a fascinating meeting between a dark chronicler of the twentieth century and his nineteenth-century counterpart....

TURN! TURN! TURN! : The 60s Folk-Rock Revolution (Signed by Donovan)

By UNTERBERGER, RICHIE

San Francisco, CA: Backbeat Books, 2003. Book. Fine. Trade Paperback. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Trade Paperback - 1st. Print - FINE - Signed by author and Donovan - Setting the scene with America's traditional folk of the early '60s, this book describes the sea of change that began in 1964 when the social consciousness of folk met the energy of rock. It concentrates on 1964-66, when the best, most popular, and most controversial folk-rock was created. The book explores the dizzyingly fast cross-fertilization of such giants as The Beatles, The Byrds, and Dylan; the passionate conflicts between folk devotees and folk-rockers; the sudden frenzy of the media; and the unforgettable music that was born. Turn! Turn! Turn! also examines how folk-rock continued to influence late '60s psychedelic rock, country-rock and the British scene, as well as its gradual, partial transformation into the singer-songwriter movement. Based on first-hand interviews with such visionaries as Roger McGuinn, Judy Collins, Donovan, John Sebastian, Arlo Guthrie, Janis Ian and dozens of others..
