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: 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.

Home, for me, means to belong, to feel wanted.”

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 area 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: 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.

READING: In De vijf frustraties van teamwork legt Patrick Lencioni de kern van samenwerking in teams bloot. Dat doet hij aan de hand van deze parabel, waarin Catherine Petersen als ceo een team moet leiden dat onderling zo in conflict is geraakt dat het de hele organisatie negatief beïnvloedt. Gaandeweg openbaren zich vijf grote frustraties waarmee teamleden worstelen, frustraties die de samenwerking saboteren: gebrek aan betrokkenheid, afschuiven van verantwoordelijkheid en niet-resultaatgericht werken. Lencioni laat middels dit verhaal zien hoe deze hindernissen ontstaan en hoe je ze achter je kunt laten. Vervolgens werkt hij het onderliggende model uit. Een boek met een krachtige boodschap voor iedereen die in of met teams werkt.

READING: Een weergaloos portret van een huwelijk, van de Schotse bestsellerauteur bekend van ‘Het verdwenen leven van Esme Lennox’. Daniel Sullivan is een man met een gecompliceerd leven. Hij woont als New Yorker op het Ierse platteland, heeft twee kinderen in Californië die hij niet meer ziet en een lieve, maar explosieve vrouw, ex-filmster Claudette. Dan hoort hij op de radio de stem van een vrouw aan wie hij twintig jaar geleden zijn hart verloor maar die hij sindsdien nooit meer gezien heeft. De gedachte aan haar brengt zijn leven aan het wankelen en voert hem naar Londen, weg van zijn gelukkige gezin. Is zijn liefde voor Claudette groot genoeg om hem weer naar huis te laten keren? En wil Claudette dat nog wel? ‘Hier moet het zijn’ is een intieme en intens ontroerende roman over wie we achterlaten en wie we worden in onze zoektocht naar een plek in de wereld. ‘Vernieuwend, ontroerend en waarachtig. Ik vond het geweldig.’ – Rachel Joyce ‘Tegelijkertijd gevoelig, wijs en vol vaart. Er zijn weinig dingen waar ik zo naar uitkijk als een nieuwe roman van Maggie O’Farrell.’ – Cathy Renzenbrink, schrijfster van ‘The Last Act of Love’
