KEITH RICHARDS by Christopher Sandford
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: April 1, 2004

"Less than a glance at what drove 'the man death forgot.'"
Hollow if high-revved portrait of the Rolling Stones guitarist and songwriter from rock-music biographer Sandford (Mick Jagger, 1994, etc.). The only thing missing, tellingly, is his subject's voice. Read full book review >

PARIS ON THE EVE by Vincent Cronin
NON-FICTION
Released: April 18, 1991

"Still: an engrossingly vivid, immediate, and informed attempt to find a unified view of a culture that was made up of eccentrics, idiosyncrasy, diversity, and alienation."
Through anecdotes and capsule biographies of painters, writers, musicians, scientists, and intellectuals, Cronin (The View from Planet Earth, 1981; Catherine, Empress of All the Russias, 1978, etc.) accounts for that dazzling but doomed culture of Paris during the ``Belle Epoque,'' the period between the Great Exhibition of 1900 and WWI.
