  • Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon & the Journey of a Generation

    Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon remain among the most enduring and important women in popular music. Their stories trace the arc of the now-mythic generation known as "the 60s" - the female version. Filled with the voices of dozens of these women's intimates, this alternating biography reads like a novel. Except it's all true.

    Susan Erickson narration takes you back as if you were growing up and going through Carly's, Carole and Joni's lives right with them. Wonderful.

  • Not My Father's Son: A Memoir

    With ribald humor, wit, and incredible insight, Alan seamlessly moves back and forth in time, integrating stories from his childhood in Scotland and his experiences today as the celebrated actor of film, television, and stage. At times suspenseful, at times deeply moving, but always incredibly brave and honest, Not My Father's Son is a powerful story of embracing the best aspects of the past and triumphantly pushing the darkness aside.

    Story

    I love Alan Cumming and his story touched my heart and hit many cords with me. I also learned a few coping skills that he used to deal with his past. I loved listening to him talk. This was/is an amazing story of someone who endured so much anger from his father. Now that I've listened to the Audio I'm going to buy the book and keep it on one of my coffee tables. I just can't put into words the impact of his life with his father and the gentle soul he is. Alan could've gone down the wrong path and not be who he is today. His love for his mother Mary Darling and brother Tom is in every word he writes. I feel this book was a love story to them as well. Do yourself a favor...listen to the Audio and be prepared to be surprised that this wonderful talent and man came out on the right side of the tracks.

    In Chris Matthews’ extraordinary biography, we see this most beloved president in the company of friends. We see and feel him close-up, having fun and giving off that restlessness of his. We watch him navigate his life from privileged, rebellious youth to gutsy American president. We witness his bravery in war and selfless rescue of his PT boat crew. We watch JFK as a young politician learning to play hardball and watch him grow into the leader who averts a nuclear war.
