With an exhaustive knowledge of popular culture and an effortless ability to spin brilliant prose out of unlikely subject matter, Klosterman attacks the entire spectrum of postmodern America: reality TV, Internet porn, breakfast cereal, serial killers, Pamela Anderson, literary Jesus freaks, and the real difference between apples and oranges (of which there is none). Sex, Drugs and Coca Puffs is ostensibly about movies, sport, television, music, books, video games and kittens, but really it's about us. All of us.

Flugzeugabsturz oder Überdosis – die wichtigste Karriereentscheidung eines Rockmusikers, denn dann wird er todsicher unsterblich. Mit 600 CDs im Kofferraum fährt Chuck Klosterman quer durch die USA nach Missoula, Ithaca und Rhode Island, an die Orte, an denen Rock-Heroen den Tod fanden. Vom Sumpf, in dem Lynyrd Skynyrds Flugzeug abstürzte bis zum Bungalow, wo sich Kurt Cobain mit einer Schrotflinte erschoss. Ein witzig-makabres Roadmovie durch das Herz der Musik, die an den Sehnsüchten unserer Seele kratzt. ›Man kann gar nicht besser, witziger und unterhaltsamer über amerikanische Popkultur schreiben.‹ Stephen King

In her latest book, Dr. Louise Kaplan, author of the groundbreaking Female Perversions , explores the fetishism strategy, a psychological defense that aims to tame, subdue, and if necessary, murder human vitalities. Through an exploration of such cultural phenomena as footbinding, reality television, and the construction of robots, Kaplan demonstrates how, in a technology-driven world, an understanding of the fetishism strategy can help to preserve the human dialogue that is the basis of all human relationships. Kaplan writes from the heart as well as from the intellect.

The long-awaited, all-access biography of a music legend In Billy Joel, acclaimed music journalist Fred Schruers draws upon more than one hundred hours of exclusive interviews with Joel to present an unprecedented look at the life, career, and legacy of the pint-sized kid from Long Island who became a rock icon. Exhibiting unparalleled intimate knowledge, Schruers chronicles Joel’s rise to the top of the charts, from his working-class origins in Levittown and early days spent in boxing rings and sweaty clubs to his monumental success in the seventies and eighties. He also explores Joel’s creative transformation in the nineties, his dream performance with Paul McCartney at Shea Stadium in 2008, and beyond. Along the way, Schruers reveals the stories behind all the key events and relationships—including Joel’s high-profile marriages and legal battles—that defined his path to stardom and inspired his signature songs, such as “Piano Man,” “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant,” “New York State of Mind,” and “She’s Always a Woman.” Throughout, he captures the spirit of a restless artist determined to break through by sharing, in his deeply personal lyrics, the dreams and heartbreaks of suburban American life. Comprehensive, vibrantly written, and filled with Joel’s memories and reflections—as well as those of the family, friends, and band members who have formed his inner circle, including Christie Brinkley, Alexa Ray Joel, Jon Small, and Steve Cohen—this is the definitive account of a beloved rock star’s epic American journey.

Als das erste Tape zu Ende ist, wissen wir, dass Renée an einer Lungenembolie gestorben ist. Rob Sheffield hat die ganze Nacht nicht geschlafen, sondern diese Kassette gehört, die seine Frau ihm hinterlassen hat. Es ist ihr letztes Date, nur Rob, Reneé und ein paar Songs. In »Love is a Mix Tape« erzählt Rob Sheffield, Redakteur beim amerikanischen »Rolling Stone«, entlang von 15 Kassetten die Geschichte seiner kurzen Beziehung zu Renée, einem Mädchen, das eigentlich viel zu cool für den schüchternen Rob war, das sich aber trotzdem in ihn verliebte. Ein Punkrock-Girl, wie es sie nur in den neunziger Jahren gab, als Pavement, Nirvana und R.E.M. eine Musik-Explosion auslösten. Aber auch Elvis, die Rolling Stones, Missy Elliott, Yo La Tengo gehören zum Soundtrack ihrer gemeinsamen Geschichte. Sie heiraten, leben zusammen, kaufen sich einen Hund, und dann stirbt Renée. Rob schafft es nicht, in der Wohnung zu bleiben, meidet Restaurants und Lokale, die er mit Renée besucht hat. Er schläft nicht und sucht Antworten in der Musik. Dabei ist es unwichtig, ob es sich um gute oder schlechte Songs handelt. Rob Sheffield gelingt es, unprätentiös, leicht und ohne falsche Hemmungen über den Verlust eines geliebten Menschen zu schreiben.
