Fans of Jojo Moyes and Marian Keyes will love The Songs of Us by Emma Cooper, a charming, funny and heartbreaking novel of love, loss and what it means to be a family. If Melody hadn't run out of deicer that day, she would never have slipped and banged her head. She wouldn't be left with a condition that makes her sing when she's nervous. And she definitely wouldn't have belted out the Arctic Monkeys' 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor' in assembly at her son's school. If Dev hadn't taken the kids to the zoo that day, then the accident wouldn't have happened. He wouldn't have left Flynn and Rose without a dad. Or shattered the love of his life's heart. But if they hadn't seen the missing person report that day, they might never have taken the trip to Cornwall. And, in the last place they expected, discovered what it really means to be 'Us'. 1.

Learn how to decode the private languages that are swapped around us every day - amongst cabbies and paramedics, soap stars and comedians, cricketers and barristers - in Susie Dent's unique and witty guide to Britain's modern tribes. Did you know that a soldier's biggest social blunder is called 'jack brew' - making yourself a cuppa without making one for anyone else? That twitchers have an expression for a bird that can't be identified - LBJ (the letters stand for little brown job)? Or that builders call plastering the ceiling 'doing Lionel Richie's dancefloor'? Susie Dent does. Ever wondered why football managers all speak the same way, what a cabbie calls the Houses of Parliament, or how ticket inspectors discreetly request backup? We are surrounded by hundreds of tribes, each speaking its own distinct slanguage of colourful words, jokes and phrases, honed through years of conversations on the battlefield, in A&E, backstage, or at 10,000 feet in the air. Susie Dent has spent years interviewing hundreds of professionals, hobbyists and enthusiasts, and the result is an idiosyncratic phrasebook like no other. From the Freemason's handshake to the publican's banter, Dent's Modern Tribes takes us on a whirlwind tour of Britain, decoding its secret languages and, in the process, finds out what really makes us all tick. 1.

The Traveler' ist das gemeinsame Projekt von John Digweed und Nick Muir. Eine Hörerfahrung, die weit über den Dancefloor hinaus geht!nn The Traveler ist das gemeinsame Projekt von John Digweed und Nick Muir. Eine Hörerfahrung, die weit über den Dancefloor hinaus geht! John Digweed and Nick Muir are one of the world s most highly regarded production duos. While science fiction and electronic music have intertwined at numerous points since the emergence of the genre from Jeff Mills to Global Communication and beyond - together with bestselling author, John Twelve Hawks, Digweed & Muir have taken the relationship into new territory and the album, The Traveler , is the result of this symbiotic connection. Hawks wrote his trilogy of The Traveler novels while listening to Digweed s mix albums and weekly radio show, Transitions. After contacting the UK DJ and producer and an exchange that crossed several years, they agreed to work together to bring Hawks works to life via a collaborative album, and with Hawks as the narrator. The end result saw Hawks travel to the UK in secret, (he lives off the grid , hiding behind a secret identity due to his beliefs regarding the intrusiveness of the modern state and digital society themes that are central to his work) and recorded his spoken word contributions to accompany an electronic music soundtrack created by Digweed and Muir. The meeting took place in the middle of nowhere , Hawks then disappeared back to whence he came, and the three have had limited contact since. TRACKS: 1. First Line 2. Live Off The Grid 3.
