            This book is a reverent and interactive homage to David Bowie, with dense illustrations of the many real and imagined universes of his own making. Hidden somewhere on each of these double page spreads, a Bowie is patiently waiting to be spotted by the well-trained eye of a fan. A...s the chameleonic Bowie took on so many iconic personas across his illustrious career, each moment is celebrated chronologically in this book. You will have to find young and dapper David Jones in 1960s Brixton; look for Ziggy Stardust in spaced out Outer Space, crawling with Martian spiders and nestled between the stars; then search for glam Bowie among the revellers at Studio 54; and ask yourself, is that the Thin White Duke outside Hansa By the Wall in late-70s Berlin? Each page of this book is so laden with Bowie references that you might even pick up a factoid or two in your search. With fun, detailed illustrations that explore Bowie's world - and that of his influences - Where's Bowie is the perfect guide to the cultural icon for both adults and children. Plus, who doesn't want to raise their kid as a Bowie super-geek? No one - that's who.

            Bill Clifton: America's Bluegrass Ambassador to the World (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            The most atypical of bluegrass artists, Bill Clifton has enjoyed a long career as a recording artist, performer, and champion of old-time music. Bill C. Malone pens the story of Clifton's eclectic life and influential career. Born into a prominent Maryland family, Clifton connect...ed with old-time music as a boy. Clifton made records around earning a Master's degree, fifteen years in the British folk scene, and stints in the Peace Corps and Marines. Yet that was just the beginning. Closely allied with the Carter Family, Woody Guthrie, Mike Seeger, and others, Clifton altered our very perceptions of the music--organizing one of the first outdoor bluegrass festivals, publishing a book of folk and gospel standards that became a cornerstone of the folk revival, and introducing both traditional and progressive bluegrass around the world. As Malone shows, Clifton clothed the music of working-class people in the vestments of romance, celebrating the log cabin as a refuge from modernism that rang with the timeless music of Appalachia. An entertaining account by an eminent music historian, Bill Clifton clarifies the myths and illuminates the paradoxes of an amazing musical life.

            Jessica Simpson has lived most of her life in the public eye. As a pop culture phenomenon, singer, reality show pioneer, actress, entrepreneur, and global businesswoman behind a $1 billion company (the most successful celebrity licensing brand in history), Simpson is an icon of a... generation. But her journey hasn't been easy, and in her powerful new memoir she isn't afraid to admit that her life has very much been a work in progress. Revealing new parts of herself for the first time, Simpson opens up about her struggles, and how she learned that with the right mind-set--pain can give you tools, faith can give you courage, and challenges often give way to bigger opportunities and a bigger picture. From her popular television show Newlyweds, to a very public divorce, starring on the big screen and topping the Billboard charts, finding new love, raising a family, and running a successful business empire, her new book will be a candid, inspiring, and behind-the-scenes look at how she chose to learn from each difficult moment, evolve musically, become a more fearless businesswoman, and consistently shatter all expectations of who she was supposed to be. Jessica is and has always been America's sweetheart and she continues to be followed for her candor, unfiltered honesty, and girl-next-door persona. For the first time, she tells her side of the story, and shares with readers everything that she's learned along the way.
