In 1946, Alice Quigley returns to her childhood home on Penny Lane, having lost three sisters and her house in Bootle to the bombs that fell over Liverpool. Estranged from her husband Dan, who suffered from two strokes triggered during the Blitz, she finds comfort in living closer to her remaining sister, Nellie, and a cast of new neighbours. But they too have problems of their own: Vera Corcoran fears for her life at the hands of an abusive husband and Olga Konstantinov fled Russia to seek a new life in Britain. But even though the bombs have stopped falling, tremors still rock the family when Alice's reviled mother is kicked out of Nellie's home and seeks vengeance. Despised by her daughters, Elsie Stewart was a cruel mother and forced their father to an early grave. Alice is desperate to start a family of her own and be a much better example to her own children. But will this be with the man she's married to? And when visions from the past resurface, she soon uncovers a dark secret that her mother has kept hidden for so long . . .

“So much of what I think I know – and I think I know more about my mother's life than almost any daughter could know – is refracted through the prism of her writing. Such is the power of her fiction that sometimes it even feels as though I'm living inside an Alice Munro story.” The millions of people around the world who read Alice Munro's work are enthralled by her insight into the human heart. Consider, then, what it would be like to have a mother who was so all-knowing. Worse, if that mother were world-famous as you were growing up and trying to make your own way as a writer, while you yourself followed in her footsteps, raising a family and trying to write on the side. That is Sheila Munro's dilemma, and it gives this book special fascination for anyone interested in their own relationship with their own mother, or their own daughter. This book is, in effect, an intimate, affectionate biography of Alice Munro. It describes in a way that only a close relative could, the details of the family background. We follow the family history from the Laidlaws who left Scotland in the early 19th century, to Alice Munro's birth in 1931, her early years and marriage all the way to the current family, including Alice Munro's grandchildren. One of the many fascinations of the book is that faithful readers of Alice's work – and are there any other kind? – will find constant echoes of settings, situations, and characters that occur in her fiction. So this book is not only a fascinating biography of Alice Munro, it also provides an informative commentary to the stories we all know. But Sheila Munro goes further. As a writer growing up in the shadow of a writing mother, she's able to write frankly and personally about being a daughter and about being a writer. With the publication of this book – richly embellished with scores of family photographs – Sheila Munro has established herself as a skilled and successful author in her own right. • Includes dozens of fascinating Munro family snapshots scattered throughout the text • Full of real-life details that will fascinate any Alice Munro fan

Poetry. POEMS FROM PENNY LANE is an anthology chronicling the "So, You're A Poet," reading series in Boulder, Colorado which has hosted such poets as Allen Ginsberg, Diane DiPrima, Anne Waldman, Gregory Corso, Ted Joans, and thousands of other poets and writers. Anne Waldman: "This Anthology draws on those many moons of Monday nights and by the commitment and talent of younger writers and editors in the Naropa community. It is a ranging and engaging compilation. As such it represents a refreshing ongoing counter-poetics, outside the mainstreams of academia and lyrical 'mafia' officialdom."

The Musical Human

The Musical Human

Examines music in our everyday lives, music in world history, and music in evolution.

From a world-leading musicologist comes a major new Big History, telling the extraordinary story of humankind's relationship with music across evolutionary time.165 million years ago saw the birth of rhythm.66 million years ago was the first melody.40 thousand years ago Homo sapiens created the first musical instrument.Today music fills our lives: it is in our homes and on our streets. How we have created, performed and listened to this music throughout history has defined what our species is and how we understand who we are. Music is an overlooked part of our origin story. Here, the fascinating history of the musical human is told for the first time. The Musical Human takes us on an exhilarating journey across the ages - from Eminem to Mozart and back through the millenia - to explore the vibrant relationship between music and the human species. Integrating insights from a wealth of disciplines, world-leading musicologist Michael Spitzer brings together the three great realms of music to render a global history of music on the widest possible canvas: music in our everyday lives; music in world history; and music in evolution, from insects, birds and whales through apes, hominins, people and AI. Through this journey we begin to understand how music is situated at the crux of distinctly human experiences of cognition, feeling and even biology, widening, and sometimes closing, the evolutionary gaps between ourselves and animals in surprising ways.The Musical Human boldly puts the case that music is the most important thing we ever did; it is a fundamental part of what makes us human.
