Book Sometimes Only the Sad Songs Will Do

Download or read book Sometimes Only the Sad Songs Will Do written by David Denny and published by Shanti Arts Publishing. This book was released on 2020-11-17 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this new collection of short fiction, David Denny gives voice to troubled characters caught in spiritual snares: a mass shooter dreams of angels and astronauts while awaiting capture, a young hotel clerk attempts to teach the rock star trashing his hotel suite a lesson in humility, an elderly couple surrender their lives to an approaching wildfire. As Paris Review editor Christian Kiefer says, "Denny's stories read like a catalog of earthly woes through which run a surprising thread of wonderment and grace." Reminiscent of the American blues tradition, these dozen lyrical laments remind us that even in an age of moral panic, climate disaster, pandemic, and political corruption, the world’s fading beauty still has the power to astound us and drop us to our knees in broken praise.

Download or read book He s So MASC written by Chris Tse and published by Auckland University Press. This book was released on 2018-03-08 with total page 96 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In How to be Dead in a Year of Snakes, Chris Tse took readers back to a shocking 1905 murder. Now he brings the reader much closer to home. He’s So MASC confronts a contemporary world of self-loathing poets and compulsive liars, of youth and sexual identity, and of the author as character — pop star, actor, hitman, and much more. These are poems that delve into worlds of hyper-masculine romanticism and dancing alone in night clubs. With its many modes and influences, He’s So MASC is an acerbic, acid-bright, yet unapologetically sentimental and personal reflection on what it means to perform and dissect identity, as a poet and a person.

Book Sing a Sad Song

Download or read book Sing a Sad Song written by Roger M. Williams and published by University of Illinois Press. This book was released on 1981 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Few American entertainers have had the explosive impact, wide-ranging appeal, and continuing popularity of country music star Hank Williams. Such Williams standards as "Your Cheatin' Heart," "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Jambalaya," and "I Saw the Light" have all entered the pantheon of great American song. Roger Williams recounts the story of Hank's rise from impoverished Southern roots, his coming of age during and after World War II, his meteoric climb to national acclaim and star status on the Grand Ole Opry, his chronic bouts with alcoholism and the alienation it created in those he loved and sang for, and finally his tragic death at twenty-nine and subsequent emergence as a folk hero. The book also features a thorough discography compiled by Bob Pinson of the Country Music Foundation.

Book Take a Sad Song

    Book Details:
  • Author : James Campion
  • Publisher : Rowman & Littlefield
  • Release : 2022-05-15
  • ISBN : 1493062387
  • Pages : 328 pages

Download or read book Take a Sad Song written by James Campion and published by Rowman & Littlefield. This book was released on 2022-05-15 with total page 328 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Take a Sad Song: The Emotional Currency of "Hey Jude," James Campion dives deeply into the song's origins, recording, visual presentation, impact, and eventual influence, while also discovering what makes "Hey Jude" a classic musical expression of personal comfort and societal unity conceived by a master songwriter, Paul McCartney. Within its melodic brilliance and lyrical touchstones of empathy and nostalgia resides McCartney's personal and professional relationship with his childhood friend and songwriting partner, John Lennon, and their simultaneous pursuit of the women who would complete them. There are also clues to the growing turmoil within the Beatles and their splintering generation scarred by war, assassination, and virulent protest. Campion's journey into the song includes the insights of academic experts and professors in the field of musicology, sociology, philosophy, psychology, and history. Campion also reveals commentary from noted Beatles authors, biographers, music historians, and journalists and, finally, a peek into the craft of songwriting from a host of talented composers across several generations. Take a Sad Song is a tribute to how a song can define, inspire, and affect us in ways we do not always fully comprehend, as well as a celebration of a truly amazing track in the Beatles canon that reveals one band's genius and underscores its lasting voice in our cultural and musical landscape.

Book Sing Me No Sad Songs

Download or read book Sing Me No Sad Songs written by and published by Gary Younglove. This book was released on 2005 with total page 374 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This exciting novel about a young Air Force pilot on secret duty in Laos after the February 1973 cease-fire is based on actual historical events in that landlocked Kingdom. After the shoot down and capture of his best friend by the communist Pathet Lao, Brian Marshall, a raven FAC, devises and executes an unauthorized rescue attempt. However, it is more than just a war story. It is also the story of one man's attempt to overcome his own weaknesses and the political and bureaucratic obstacles in his way.

C., Bangkok, Thailand, Vientiane, Laos, and the jungles near the Plain of Jars, and is based on the author's personal experiences.
