Description:
NEW/unread, tight binding, bright pages. Shows slight shelf wear Rare piece of jazz history...Jazz buffs have been waiting for Danny Barker's full account of his life in jazz since the 1950s, when Nat Hentoff and Nat Shapiro published Heah Me Talkin' to Ya, an oral history of jazz which drew heavily on Barker's reminiscences. A jazz guitarist, Danny Barker played with many important New Orleans bands in the 1920s and then moved to New York to play with swing bands in the 1930s, notably Cab Calloway's band, at a time when several future pioneers of the bop movement were in the band, including Dizzie Gillespie. (It is Barker who made famous the scene when Gillespie and several cohorts began playing bop during a Calloway band stage show, which produced the angry blast from Calloway, "I won't have any of that Chinese music in my band!") Barker's memoirs brilliantly recreate the jazz world of New Orleans (parades, funerals, brothels, dance halls, and more) and the pioneer musicians of the… Read more

Description:
New, Wrapper and Pages Bright, Binding Tight. The Wylies, a well-to-do but uneducated Scottish family, are concerned about their daughter, Maggie, a plain young woman who they fear, will remain a spinster. One night the Wylies discover that a serious young university student, John Shand, has been breaking into their home so that he can read books from their large library. Shand is penniless and cannot afford to buy books for his law school education. Maggie Wylie and John Shand come to an understanding: that her family will fund his education if, at the end of five years, he agrees to marry her.
John honors his commitment to Maggie, marrying her although he does not love her. Recognizing her husband's ambition to become a Member of Parliament, Maggie quietly uses her intelligence and her connections behind the scenes to get John elected. She continues to foster his career, never allowing him to see that she is the power behind his rise to fame.
Eventually John begins to believe that his… Read more

Description:
NEW + SIGNEDFrom fairy tales to personal memories, this collection, YES NO MAYBE explores the fiction-making process through which we construct a world. On the one hand, characters like Snow White and Rapunzel are given gritty lives, marred by mortality and change. On the other, the poet's personal past is viewed a simpler time and shines with a fairy-tale-like clarity. Together, these variations represent the yes/no dialectic and show it to be a component of MAYBE, a world full of promise within which anti-ethical elements may be transformed. In his considerations of this complex relationship, Glen Brown attains what is most difficult in an art, a profound simplicity.**Illinois Author of the Year [1994]**
