With over 30 of the most revealing interviews Bowie has given in 45 years, Bowie on Bowie tells the story of Bowie's restlessly inventive career in his own words. Over the decades Bowie has always answered honestly and articulately in interviews, analysing his own past and trying to explain the motivations behind his latest persona. Bowie was the first artist to regard the interview as a means of artistic expression in itself and this is as close to an autobiography as he has come. In 1973, Martin Amis wrote in the New Statesman, "Bowie himself is unlikely to last long as a cult". The 'cult' of David Bowie has now lasted for several decades and while Amis's piece is not included in Bowie on Bowie, there are over 30 interviews and profiles that document his changes. Widely regarded as a revolutionary influence on writers in fashion, art and film, as well as music, he discusses the full extent of his interests in these revealing interviews, drawn from NME, Melody Maker, The Face, Q, Mojo and GQ. Sean Egan has compiled Bowie's most revealing interviews into a riveting commentary on 50 years of personas and styles, tracing each step from Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane to The Thin White Duke and into the elder statesman that Bowie has become. This essential collection of 50 years of interviews from Rock's most restlessly creative spirit is as close to an autobiography that Bowie has come. Bowie came to fame at a time when rock journalism came into its own, and he came to see interviews as another opportunity for artistic expression. Some of rock's greatest writers are included in this collection, Robert Hilburn and Charles Shaar Murray to Allan Jones and Steven Wells alongside an interview with Alexander McQueen, the fashion designer, all of which reveal the extent of Bowie's interests over the decades with a rare articulacy and thoughtfulness. Few musicians have had the wide-ranging influence Bowie has cast over writers, fashion, art and film as well as music, and here is the ultimate introduction to Rock's most distinctive voice.

Most visitors to New Orleans, whether they're in the city on business or for a little well-deserved playtime, don't wander too far from the French Quarter or the downtown hotels. That's a shame, really, because outside the "Visitors District" are some of the Crescent City's finest restaurants, coziest bistros, historic saloons and eateries that are as casual as they are eccentric. Now there's a guide that's been written for the mobile visitor about to discover that in New Orleans there's always something interesting just down the road. Focused totally on cafes and restaurants beyond the Visitors District, New Orleans Dining is designed for the adventurous food lover willing to go the extra mile to discover what makes New Orleans one of America's premier culinary playgrounds. For nearly forty years, the city has been the home away from home for novelist and epicurean essayist Steven Wells Hicks and in all that time he's taken notes, taken names and now he's kicking butt. Inside this fourth edition of his best-selling New Orleans guidebooks, visitors will find everything from white tablecloth places to six-napkin poor-boy joints, all expressly written for the visiting food lover with more taste than time. Some of the restaurants are famous, some not and some are even called out as the tourist traps they are. Candid, curmudgeonly, occasionally flippant yet always thought-provoking, the book's leisurely essays covering more than three dozen intriguing restaurants are designed to steer guests toward the city's best...and away from the rest.

Will Guidry's career as a backwater lawyer is going nowhere until he has a couple of beers with up-and-coming political operative Tucker Callahan, whose family's petrochemical fortune instills in him a confidence bordering on hubris. As Tucker explains to his rudderless brother, Carter, "Guidry and I made a deal because he needed a miracle and I wanted to play God." Guidry rides Tucker's political horse sense into the office of Louisiana's Attorney General, while Tucker capitalizes on Guidry's victory to bolster his own political reputation. But what should become a powerful alliance deteriorates into a bitter feud when Guidry tries to flex his political muscle and Tucker suspects he may have maneuvered a calculating sociopath into the marble halls of power. Caught in the crossfire is Carter, the story's narrator. Devastated by betrayal at the hands of his brother and the woman he loved for a lifetime, Carter watches the power struggle between Tucker and Guidry from the sidelines. Everything changes when he stumbles on the charismatic attorney general committing a monstrous crime, and finds himself drawn into the vortex of his brother's private war. Racing from a bungled execution through ruthless political payback, before culminating in a no-holds-barred courtroom showdown, the stakes continue to rise and Carter finds his small-town naivete peeling away. Replacing it is a mounting dread of what will happen when the hammer of justice meets destiny's anvil.

As the stakes get higher and decision day draws near, Adam finds himself falling hard for - a winsome yet unorthodox Presbyterian minister, whose quirky viewpoints include her conclusion that the Essence of Mankind hides in a bottle of ketchup.

When informed of his wife Kate's impending death, folklorist Tyler Calhoun withdraws from what he sees as a bleak and loveless future. At the front door of his frame house in quiet Port Jefferson, Mississippi, appears a stream of casseroles and condolences from well-wishing neighbors, among them a biracial childhood friend of his dying wife, Olivia Kendall, running from a past filled with adultery, notoriety and murder. Stepping in to manage the Calhoun household, Olivia continues to look in upon the grief-stricken Tyler following his wife's death. Leaves change, seasons pass and before long, Tyler begins to develop feelings for Olivia, who has not only taken over his home, but appears to have designs on his heart. Before long, quiet Port Jefferson comes alive with whispers about a period of mourning too short and a budding romance that may go too far.
