He has ten days to plan it. Instead, on the accidental getaway with old pal Raphael TaharJerusalem police officer, buddy from university days past and obnoxious master of fornicationMark Levine meets 'Monica', an exquisite dancer who sports that Club Caribe tag. The mystical fog that wraps her inspires Mark to write his first fresh work in three years. On his final night at Club Caribe, she unexpectedly takes him to bed. He parts the club madly in love, but has not even learned her name. Writing begins back in New York, but forced by writer's block to Paris to complete the unfinished work, Mark Levine gets more than he bargained for. Mixed in a purloined manuscript of failed legal careers and literary hopes, contempt, discontent, alcoholism and the loneliness of unmet potential, moving from Caribbean getaways to New York's Upper West Side, to fashionable Paris to the desolate moonscape of ravaged Ramallah, filled with the author's witty and poignant insights into the journey to middle adulthood in late twentieth century America, The Tale of Mark Levine is Michael D.

With over 30 of the most revealing interviews Bowie has given in 45 years, Bowie on Bowie tells the story of Bowie's restlessly inventive career in his own words. Over the decades Bowie has always answered honestly and articulately in interviews, analysing his own past and trying to explain the motivations behind his latest persona. Bowie was the first artist to regard the interview as a means of artistic expression in itself and this is as close to an autobiography as he has come. In 1973, Martin Amis wrote in the New Statesman, "Bowie himself is unlikely to last long as a cult". The 'cult' of David Bowie has now lasted for several decades and while Amis's piece is not included in Bowie on Bowie, there are over 30 interviews and profiles that document his changes. Widely regarded as a revolutionary influence on writers in fashion, art and film, as well as music, he discusses the full extent of his interests in these revealing interviews, drawn from NME, Melody Maker, The Face, Q, Mojo and GQ. Sean Egan has compiled Bowie's most revealing interviews into a riveting commentary on 50 years of personas and styles, tracing each step from Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane to The Thin White Duke and into the elder statesman that Bowie has become. This essential collection of 50 years of interviews from Rock's most restlessly creative spirit is as close to an autobiography that Bowie has come. Bowie came to fame at a time when rock journalism came into its own, and he came to see interviews as another opportunity for artistic expression. Some of rock's greatest writers are included in this collection, Robert Hilburn and Charles Shaar Murray to Allan Jones and Steven Wells alongside an interview with Alexander McQueen, the fashion designer, all of which reveal the extent of Bowie's interests over the decades with a rare articulacy and thoughtfulness. Few musicians have had the wide-ranging influence Bowie has cast over writers, fashion, art and film as well as music, and here is the ultimate introduction to Rock's most distinctive voice.

This ain't no Dreamgirls," Rhodessa Jones warns participants in the Medea Project, the theater program for incarcerated women that she founded and directs. Her expectations are grounded in reality, tempered, for example, by the fact that women are the fastest growing population in U.S. prisons. Still, Jones believes that by engaging incarcerated women in the process of developing and staging dramatic works based on their own stories, she can push them toward tapping into their own creativity, confronting the problems that landed them in prison, and taking control of their lives. Rena Fraden chronicles the collaborative process of transforming incarcerated women's stories into productions that incorporate Greek mythology, hip-hop music, dance, and autobiography. She captures a diverse array of voices, including those of Jones and other artists, the sheriff and prison guards, and, most vividly, the women themselves. Through compelling narrative and thoughtful commentary, Fraden investigates the Medea Project's blend of art and activism and considers its limits and possibilities for enacting social change. Rhodessa Jones is co-artistic director of the San Francisco-based performance company Cultural Odyssey and founder of the Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women. An award-winning performer, she has taught at the Yale School of Drama and the New College of California.
