From the author of the widely acclaimed debut novel Seating Arrangements, winner of the Dylan Thomas Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for First Fiction: a gorgeously written, fiercely compelling glimpse into the demanding world of professional ballet and its magnetic hold over two generations. Astonish Me is the irresistible story of Joan, a young American dancer who helps a Soviet ballet star, the great Arslan Rusakov, defect in 1975. A flash of fame and a passionate love affair follow, but Joan knows that, onstage and off, she is destined to remain in the background. She will never possess Arslan, and she will never be a prima ballerina. She will rise no higher than the corps, one dancer among many.After her relationship with Arslan sours, Joan plots to make a new life for herself. She quits ballet, marries a good man, and settles in California with him and their son, Harry. But as the years pass, Joan comes to understand that ballet isn’t finished with her yet, for there is no mistaking that Harry is a prodigy. Through Harry, Joan is pulled back into a world she thought she’d left behind - back into dangerous secrets, and back, inevitably, to Arslan.Combining a sweeping, operatic plot with subtly observed characters, Maggie Shipstead gives us a novel of stunning intensity and deft psychological nuance. Gripping, dramatic, and brilliantly conjured, Astonish Me confirms Shipstead’s range and ability and raises provocative questions about the nature of talent, the choices we must make in search of fulfillment, and how we square the yearning for comfort with the demands of art. 1.

Keep your cool on the trail when everyone else is losing theirs thanks to Alpinestars’ latest innovation, the Techstar Long Sleeve Jersey. Its lightweight nature really is set to astonish, and at the same time it packs in a whole bunch of breathability to keep you perfectly ventilated, and to wick sweat away from the body quickly when you’re really up against it in those tough uphill sections. This is provided by the perfectly positioned mesh panels on the side torso and forearms and, when combined with the antibacterial finish used here, the feeling you get at the end of the day is every bit as refreshing as you feel at the start. It might be comfortable, but this the Techstar is hardly a slouch when it comes to performance. The shaping of the pre-curved sleeves keep them close to the body to support and a dash of aero to your ride, while the raglan design of the sleeves allows you to move freely for those tiny, last-minute changes needed to boss the berms. An extended rear at the back allows for greater coverage and integration with MTB shorts, and the seamless collar and cuffs keep chafing at bay.

The infinite! No other question has ever moved so profoundly the spirit of man, no other idea has so fruitfully stimulated his intellect, yet no other concept stands in greater need of clarification than that of the infinite .... - David Hilbert (1862 - 1943) Infinity is a fathomless gulf, There is a story attributed to David Hilbert, the preeminent mathe into which all things matician whose quotation appears above. A man walked into a vanish. hotel late one night and asked for a room. "Sorry, we don't have o Marcus Aurelius (121- 180), Roman Emperor any more vacancies," replied the owner, "but let's see, perhaps and philosopher I can find you a room after all" Leaving his desk, the owner reluctantly awakened his guests and asked them to change their rooms: the occupant of room no. 1 would move to room no. 2, the occupant of room no. 2 would move to room no. 3, and so on until each occupant had moved one room over. To the utter astonish ment of our latecomer, room no. 1 suddenly became vacated, and he happily moved in and settled down for the night. But a numbing thought kept him from sleep: How could it be that by merely moving the occupants from one room to another, the first room had become vacated? (Remember, all of the rooms were occupied when he arrived.
This stunning book charts the rich history of the blues, through the dazzling array of posters, album covers, and advertisements that have shaped its identity over the past hundred years. The blues have been one of the most ubiquitous but diverse elements of American popular music at large, and the visual art associated with this unique sound has been just as varied and dynamic. There is no better guide to this fascinating graphical world than Bill Dahl - a longtime music journalist and historian who has written liner notes for countless reissues of classic blues, soul, R&B, and rock albums. With his deep knowledge and incisive commentary - complementing more than three hundred and fifty lavishly reproduced images - the history of the blues comes musically and visually to life. What will astonish readers who thumb through these pages is the amazing range of ways that the blues have been represented - whether via album covers, posters, flyers, 78 rpm labels, advertising, or other promotional materials. We see the blues as it was first visually captured in the highly colorful sheet music covers of the early twentieth century. We see striking and hard-to-find label designs from labels big (Columbia) and small (Rhumboogie). We see William Alexander's humorous artwork on postwar Miltone Records, the cherished ephemera of concert and movie posters, and Chess Records' iconic early albums designed by Don Bronstein, which would set a new standard for modern album cover design. What these images collectively portray is the evolution of a distinctively American art form. And they do so in the richest way imaginable. The result is a sumptuous book, a visual treasury as alive in spirit as the music it so vibrantly captures.
