Lost at Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries - Jon Ronson

Whether it is the latent violence in a town that celebrates Christmas year-round, a delusional dee-jay laughing his way to prison, or an epic exploration of Stanley Kubrick's archives journalist Jon Ronson explores it all and more in Lost at Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries! The pieces compiled here are made up the odd and strange, almost the side effects of human progress. What links them thematically is Ronson's simultaneously empathetic and skeptical take on his subjects that makes his writing one-of-a-kind.

The Who: 50 Years: The Official History - Ben Marshall

How'd they fit the 'Orrible 'Oo in a book? The Who were nutters who played like nobody else: The singer was a rocker, then a mod, then a god who twirled his microphone like a tornado; the guitarist was the time-keeper, a big-nosed git who wrote rock operas and weirdo songs; the drummer played lead and was the Id personified on stage and off; all the while the bass player stood still playing chords around all three. They were loud, combative, hilarious, life-saving and glorious. They stood tall with the very best of rock and roll. This is their story.

The Blue Touch Paper: A Memoir - David Hare

David Hare's memoir covers the three major experiences that shaped his life and his vocation as a playwright: growing up in and escaping his suffocating childhood and education; directing and being writing for the Royal Court and Portable Theatres; and British political culture from post-war consensus in to the election of Margaret Thatcher. Cogent and satirical content, buoyed by a strong political point-of-view made Hare one of the most important 20th Century playwrights. It's a fascinating story of the artist's development and ongoing conflict with the gnawing doubt that both forces one to create, but also plagues inspiration.
