READING: SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA NOVEL AWARD - A RICHARD AND JUDY PICK 2017 A top-ten bestseller, THIS MUST BE THE PLACE by Maggie O'Farrell crosses time zones and continents to reveal an extraordinary portrait of a marriage. 'A complex, riveting novel of love and hope that grips at the heart' The Sunday Times A reclusive ex-film star living in the wilds of Ireland, Claudette Wells is a woman whose first instinct, when a stranger approaches her home, is to reach for her shotgun. Why is she so fiercely protective of her family, and what made her walk out of her cinematic career when she had the whole world at her feet? Her husband Daniel, reeling from a discovery about a woman he last saw twenty years ago, is about to make an exit of his own. It is a journey that will send him off-course, far away from the life he and Claudette have made together. Will their love for one another be enough to bring Daniel back home?

READING: A fascinating glimpse behind the big suits and deadpan looks to the heart and soul of a band that made it big by playing it cool With their minimalist beats, sophisticated lyrics, and stoic mien, the Talking Heads were indisputably one of the most influential and intriguing bands of their time. Rising from the ashes of punk and the smoldering embers of the disco inferno, they effectively straddled the boundaries between critical and commercial success as few other groups did, with music you could deconstruct and dance to at the same time. Culture critic David Bowman tells the fascinating story of how this brain trust of talented musicians turned pop music on its head. From the band’s inception at the Rhode Island School of Design to their first big gig opening for the Ramones at CBGB, from their prominence in the worlds of art and fashion to the clash of egos and ideals that left them angry, jealous, and ready to call it quits, Bowman closely chronicles the rise and fall of a stunningly original and gloriously dysfunctional rock 'n' roll band that stayed together longer than anyone thought possible, and left a legacy that influences artists to this day.

READING: Weergaloze roman over familiegeheimen, moederschap en de kracht van herinneringen Na een stormachtige ontmoeting met de charismatische Innes Kent, verhuist Lexie Sinclair van het Engelse platteland naar Londen. Onder de indruk van de aandacht en de mooie woorden van Kent dompelt Lexie zich onder in het swingende Londen van de jaren zestig, een wereld van kunstenaars, schrijvers en andere bohemiens, waar zij een baan vindt bij het spraakmakende magazine Elsewhere. Na de plotselinge dood van Kent en een aantal stormachtige affaires kiest ze bewust voor een leven als alleenstaande moeder. Ze ziet haar toekomst vol vertrouwen tegemoet, wanneer het noodlot opnieuw toeslaat. Vele jaren later in het moderne Londen krijgen Elina en haar partner Ted een baby. Het is een gezonde jongen maar de prijs was hoog: tijdens de traumatische bevalling moest Ted machteloos toezien hoe hij Elina bijna verloor. De jonge ouders proberen hun draai te vinden in hun nieuwe bestaan, maar het verleden dringt zich langzaam aan hen op in de vorm van lang vergeten herinneringen, die de grondvesten onder hun leven doen wankelen.

READING: A sudden death, a never-mailed postcard, and a longburied secret set the stage for a luminous and heartbreakingly real novel about lost souls finding one another The Darby-Jones boardinghouse in Ruby Falls, New York, is home to Mona Jones and her daughter, Oneida, two loners and self-declared outcasts who have formed a perfectly insular family unit: the two of them and the three eclectic boarders living in their house. But their small, quiet life is upended when Arthur Rook shows up in the middle of a nervous breakdown, devastated by the death of his wife, carrying a pink shoe box containing all his wife's mementos and keepsakes, and holding a postcard from sixteen years ago, addressed to Mona but never sent. Slowly the contents of the box begin to fit together to tell a story—one of a powerful friendship, a lost love, and a secret that, if revealed, could change everything that Mona, Oneida, and Arthur know to be true. Or maybe the stories the box tells and the truths it brings to life will teach everyone about love—how deeply it runs, how strong it makes us, and how even when all seems lost, how tightly it brings us together. With emotional accuracy and great energy, This Must Be the Place introduces memorable, charming characters that refuse to be forgotten.

READING: Wanneer haar oudste zoon Dan aankondigt priester te willen worden, sluit Rosaleen Madigan zich op in haar kamer. In de jaren die volgen verlaten haar vier kinderen een voor een het ouderlijk huis. Dan vertrekt naar New York, waar hij voor zijn homoseksualiteit uitkomt en geconfronteerd wordt met de gevolgen van aids; dochter Constance gaat naar Limerick en trouwt een man die door haar moeder te min wordt bevonden; de altruïstische Emmet vertrekt naar Afrika als ontwikkelingswerker; en de charismatische, maar alcoholistische jongste dochter Hanna droomt van een carrière als actrice in Dublin, maar verzandt in het moederschap. Wanneer de kinderen zich jaren later tijdens de kerstdagen herenigen en te horen krijgen dat Rosaleen het huis wil verkopen, wordt ieder van hen geconfronteerd met de beladen relatie tot hun moeder en tot elkaar, en met het gemis van hun jaren geleden overleden vader. Het groene pad is de meest indringende roman van Anne Enright tot nu toe, een roman over de worsteling van een vrouw met het moederschap en de invloed daarvan op haar kinderen.

READING: This Must Be The Place is the first architectural history of popular music performance space, describing its beginnings, its different typologies, and its development into a distinctive genre of building design. It examines the design and form of popular music architecture and charts how it has been developed in ad-hoc ways by non-professionals such as building owners, promoters, and the musicians themselves as well as professionally by architects, designers, and construction specialists. With a primary focus on Europe and North America (and excursions to Australia, the Far East and South America), it explores audience experience and how venues have influenced the development of different musical scenes. From music halls and Vaudeville in the 1800s, via the seminal clubs and theatres of the 20th century, to the large-scale multi-million-dollar arena concerts of today, this book explores the impact that the use of private and public space for performance has on our cities' urban identity, and, to a lesser extent, how rural space is perceived and used. Like architecture, popular music is neither static nor standardized; it continuously develops and has multiple strands. This Must Be The Place describes the factors that have determined the development of music venue architecture, focusing on both famous and less well-known examples from the smallest bar room music space to the largest stadium-filling rock set.

READING: Het is juli 1976 en Londen is in de greep van de heetste zomer van de eeuw. Het heeft maanden niet geregend, het watergebruik is gerantsoeneerd en de net gepensioneerde Robert Riordan gaat de deur uit om een krant te kopen, zoals hij dat al dertig jaar iedere dag doet. Maar ditmaal komt hij niet terug. Zodra zijn kinderen het nieuws horen, komen ze alle drie naar hun ouderlijk huis om het mysterie te ontrafelen. Daar, in de schaduw van hun onverdraaglijke en tegelijkertijd onmisbare moeder, horen de twee van elkaar vervreemde zussen en hun broer over de tragische gebeurtenis in het leven van hun ouders. Naarmate de temperatuur stijgt, komen jarenlang opgekropte emoties aan de oppervlakte: iedereen moet de confrontatie aangaan met het verleden, met elkaar en met zichzelf. Als de regen niet valt is een intiem portret van een gezin in crisis, geschreven door een van de meest geprezen Britse schrijfsters van dit moment.

READING: It's the summer of 1983. Ronald Reagan is in the White House, Princess Leia is on magazine covers, and Thea Knox is on the road. Fresh out of college, Thea is driving solo from California to New York. Her plan is to house-sit for her parents for the summer, but they sell her childhood home on a whim, leaving Thea (once again) to her own devices. She takes a detour to visit her Aunt Wendy in Merdale, a college town nestled in the Kansas prairie. Unlike Dorothy, Thea's adventure begins when she arrives in Kansas. Thea is immediately surrounded by her aunt's group of friends, including Julie, a bookstore owner; Nick, Julie's carpenter boyfriend; Bob, a stoner wildlife rehabilitat∨ and Amira, a lawyer who works with runaway girls. When she finds herself in love at first sight with Jimmy Ward, a local with a hazy past, Thea decides to extend her stay. Not everyone welcomes her into the fold, however, and Thea's own past--including her distant best friend and erstwhile boyfriends on either coast--is nipping at her heels. When she discovers a terrible secret that could upend Jimmy's world, the spell of happiness she has woven in this unlikely place threatens to break. This compelling coming-of-age novel explores the search for identity, love, friendship, and home, and celebrates the magic and mystery that exist in even the most ordinary places.

READING: Farming and cattle herding were introduced in southern Scandinavia in approximately 4000-3900 cal BC. In a long-term perspective, the introduction of farming and cattle herding is one of the most important changes for humanity. There are still questions to be answered. How did the innovations spread? What were the causes for change and who were the actors involved in the process? In this publication we are able to look inside the black box of transition. The empirical matrial consists of newly excavated Mesolothic and Neolithic sites in the county of Ostergotland in Eastern Middle Sweden. Settlements, artefacts and radiocarbon analysis tell the tale of both continuity and change. The study proves that the process of change from foraging to farming in this area can be regarded as alterations in the Mesolithic local communities and that the introduction of farming and animal husbandry was an apparent rather undramatic event. Traditional living continued but life never became the same again.
