Pentatonic, written and read by Jonathan Coe, is a daring and original story about family and memory, originally inspired by the accompanying music from Danny Manners. When a family celebrates the prize-giving day at their daughter´s secondary school, thoughts turn to their own childhoods. The father remembers his living room piano recital, recorded on a well-worn cassette tape. The mother remembers her own father´s war tragedy. As the father searches for the physical reminder of his past and the mother longs to forget her own, they confront the breakdown of their marriage in the present. In Pentatonic, Jonathan Coe movingly explores the memories that unite us and the experiences that drive us apart. Text by Jonathan Coe. Music by Danny Manners. Produced by Ken Brake at Regal Lane Studios. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Coe. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/pauk/000371/bk_pauk_000371_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Special Deluxe, written and read by Neil Young. Quirky and wonderfully candid, Neil Young´s new book of reminiscences is as compelling as his first book. He returns with more unforgettable stories about his six decades in the music business - but this is not your average rock biography. He centres this new work on one of his life´s passions, cars, using the framework of all the cars he´s ever owned to construct a narrative of his life and career, exploring and demonstrating how memories are attached to objects. Young also expresses regret for the environmental impact of his past cars and now passionately advocates the use of clean energy. Special Deluxe is a mix of memoir and environmental politics by one of the most gifted and influential artists of our time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Neil Young.

Her commitment, and the combination of career tracks that she has pursued for decades, is also about fulfillment. ´´I simply love what I do,” explained Riley.´´ ´´Sister Carole is an excellent musician with a special gift for helping students and faculty by bringing effective processes into fruition. Most importantly, Sister Carole Riley offers extraordinary commitment to enriching the spiritual growth and well-being of our musical community, and we are deeply enriched through her perspectives,´´ said Dr. Edward Kocher, dean of the Mary Pappert School of Music.
