Pour Me

A.A. Gill
Authors:
A.A. Gill

A. A. Gill's memoir begins in the dark of a dormitory with six strangers. He is an alcoholic, dying in the last-chance saloon - driven to dry out, not out of a desire to change but mainly through weariness. He tells the truth - as far as he can remember it - about drinking and about what it is like to be drunk. Pour Me is about the black-outs, the collapse, the despair: 'Pockets were a constant source of surprise - a lamb chop, a votive candle, earrings, notes written on paper and ripped from books,' and even, once, a pigeon. 'Morning pockets,' he says, 'were like tiny crime scenes.' He recalls the lost days, lost friends, failed marriages ... But there was also 'an optimum inebriation, a time when it was all golden, when the drink and the pleasure made sense and were brilliant'. Sobriety regained, there are painterly descriptions of people and places, unforgettable musings about childhood and family, art and religion, friendships and fatherhood; and, most movingly, the connections between his cooking, dyslexia and his missing brother.Full of raw and unvarnished truths, exquisitely written throughout, Pour Me is about lost time and self-discovery. Lacerating, unflinching, uplifting, it is a classic about drunken abandon.Ready by Dougray Scott(p) 2017 Orion Publishing Group

Scenes and Apparitions

Roy Strong
Authors:
Roy Strong

Scenes and Apparitions begins where its predecessor, Splendours and Miseries, left off. It covers a period of Roy Strong's life from 1988 to 2003. Shaking off the shackles of public life, Roy was free for the first time to reinvent himself, leaving behind the political and cultural machinations of the art world. Left with little to live on, he turned his hand to what came his way, first as a consultant to the Canary Wharf development; then as a television and radio presenter; and finally as a full-time writer of books on the nation's history and civilisation, as well as on garden design and history.The urge to keep a diary ebbed and flowed and continues to be nothing other than sporadic - when this or that prods his pen to describe a scene or a person. This volume of his diaries is an unmissable record of how a citizen at the close of the second Elizabethan age observed and chronicles his own world, as the last decade of the twentieth century gave way to the first decade of the twenty-first.

A Portrait of an Idiot as a Young Man

Jon Holmes
Authors:
Jon Holmes

When Jon Holmes became a father (twice), he was asked to fill in a form detailing his family medical history. Except he couldn't, because he has no idea who his family are. Born to an unnamed, unmarried mother and an unknown father and given up for adoption at four weeks old, Jon decided to document his own history, so that one day he could pass it on to his children. It's a story of how boys grow up to become (stupid) men, of sexual misadventure, of being accidentally shot in the face, of spiders, a ghost, a fatally injured gerbil, American road trips that went wrong, becoming inadvertently locked in Graham Norton's toilet with an Oscar nominated screenwriter, being removed from Mrs Thatcher's vicinity by her security detail and having loving parents who did their best to bring up a child that wasn't theirs. Part memoir, part hilarious insight into why men are so inept, this is the true story of how an unwanted baby in the Midlands went on to become a wanted man in the state of Texas, and everything that happened in between.His children will never be allowed to read it.

The Universal Tone

Carlos Santana, Ashley Kahn, Hal Miller
Authors:
Carlos Santana, Ashley Kahn, Hal Miller

The intimate and long-awaited memoir of guitar legend Carlos Santana.In 1967 at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, just a few weeks after the Summer of Love, a young Mexican guitarist played a blistering solo that announced the arrival of a prodigious musical talent. Two years later he played an historic set at Woodstock and the world came to know Carlos Santana, his instantly recognizable guitar sound, and the band that blended electric blues, psychedelic rock, Latin and modern jazz-?the band that still bears his name.Carlos Santana's memoir offers a page-turning tale of musical self-determination and inner self-discovery, and is filled with colourful detail and life-affirming stories. THE UNIVERSAL TONE traces his journey from his earliest days playing the strip bars in Tijuana while barely in his teens and brings to light the establishment of his signature guitar sound; his roles as a husband, father and rock guitar star; his indebtedness to musical and spiritual leaders-from John Coltrane and John Lee Hooker to Miles Davis and Harry Belafonte; and the deep, lifelong path he developed from his Catholic upbringing, Eastern philosophies and other mystical sources. It includes his recording some of the most influential rock albums of all time, up to and beyond the 1999 sensation SUPERNATURAL, which garnered nine Grammy Awards and stands as arguably the most amazing career comeback in popular music history.THE UNIVERSAL TONE offers an inspiring story of musical fearlessness that finds humour in the world of high-flying fame, speaks plainly of personal revelations, and celebrates the divine and infinite possibility Santana sees in each person he meets.
