This is not 52nd Street. The rich, white academics will no longer be given their structured, easy-to-listen-to jazz. This is Milton’s Playhouse. This is the heart of music. Structure – time – form and proper scales are dead here. This is the place that jazz progresses. 52nd Street is stale and lifeless. The bridge to 52nd Street has been burned down. This is Improvisational Writing. It lives through every typo – misspelling – misuse and grammatical mistake. It is music without sound. Without measures. Without Scales. Without time. Without prisons. It is a hope to give life to something that has become so confined it can no longer breathe. It may be one continuous mistake. But it is honest – true – uncompromising and unconfined. In a world that has a million bookshelves lined with street maps to 52nd Street, this is a fresh note. It may be a flat note, nonetheless, it is a note.

A Burning Bridge is a warm Goodbye is a collection of poems, thoughts and short stories amassed during Baker's turbulent time traveling between the U.S. and Canada. Finally landing in the states and going from couches to beds to week long drinking binges. Baker taps into the raw, harsh reality of truly seeing the elegance and splendor of Hell and "her". Often relating the two. His honesty is jarring and humorous. So, grab the cat, grab the wine and enjoy.

The Burning Question

We Can't Burn Half the World's Oil, Coal, and Gas. So How Do We Quit?

The Burning Question reveals climate change to be the most fascinating scientific, political and social puzzle in history. It shows that carbon emissions are still accelerating upwards, following an exponential curve that goes back centuries. One reason is that saving energy is like squeezing a balloon: reductions in one place lead to increases elsewhere. Another reason is that clean energy sources don't in themselves slow the rate of fossil fuel extraction. Tackling global warming will mean persuading the world to abandon oil, coal and gas reserves worth many trillions of dollars — at least until we have the means to put carbon back in the ground. The burning question is whether that can be done. What mix of politics, psychology, economics and technology might be required? Are the energy companies massively overvalued, and how will carbon-cuts affect the global economy? Will we wake up to the threat in time? And who can do what to make it all happen?

"A ravishing collection, full of wisdom, grief, beauty, and especially surprise."--Anthony Doerr, author of The Shell Collectors Peter Orner zeroes in on the strange ways our memories define us: A woman's husband dies before their divorce is finalized; a man runs for governor of Illinois and loses much more than an election; two brothers play beneath the infamous bridge at Chappaquiddick. Employing the masterful compression for which he has been widely praised, Orner presents a kaleidoscope of individual lives viewed in startling, intimate close-up. Whether writing of Geraldo Rivera's attempt to reveal the contents of Al Capone's vault or of a father and daughter trying to outrun a hurricane, Orner illuminates universal themes. In stories that span considerable geographic ground--from Chicago to Wyoming, from Massachusetts to the Czech Republic--he writes of the past we can't seem to shake, the losses we can't make up for, and the power of our stories to help us reclaim what we thought was gone forever.

The Burning Shore, another gripping installment in Wilbur Smith's Courtney Family Adventure series Centaine de Thiry grew up with privilege, wealth, and freedom on a sprawling French estate. Then war came crashing down around her, and a daring young South African aviator named Michael Courtney stole her heart amidst the destruction. But the tides of fate and battle sent the young woman on a journey across a dangerous sea to the coast of Africa. When Centaine's ship is torpedoed and sunk, she is plunged into a shark-filled sea miles from the unseen shore. And when she reaches land, Centaine puts foot not in the lush world that Michael Courtney described to her, but on the edge of a burning desert--alone and fighting for her life. In a strange world, under a great rushing sky, Centaine sets forth in the company of wandering Bushmen--and then into the arms of a renegade white soldier who may be her savior or destruction. As Michael Courtney's family searches for Centaine, she comes near her promised land--and the untold tragedy and riches that it holds...
