An elegant, deeply felt memoir from Maryse Wolinski—journalist and widow of the late cartoonist Georges Wolinski, who died in the terrorist attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo—that is both a beautiful tribute to her late husband and a rallying call to action. “Darling, I’m going to Charlie.” These were the last words that prolific satirical cartoonist Georges Wolinski said to his wife, Maryse, as he left for work. Two hours later, terrorists barged into the Paris offices of the Charlie Hebdo magazine, fatally shooting him and eleven others. Maryse remembers her marriage to Georges—forty-seven years of love and devotion—and the swift, cruel manner in which she lost him. From her grief comes a demand for answers as she investigates the failings of the French government in their security measures, especially when another terrorist attack occurs just eight months later. A celebrated journalist in her own right, Maryse writes with both clarity and authority, all the while exploring what made her relationship with Georges so singularly strong. Darling, I’m Going to Charlie is not only one woman’s beautiful tribute to her late husband, but also a stunning, courageous testimony and inspiring call for change.

This is a memoir about being in your twenties, and all the foibles, misadventures, and heartbreak that accompany those years. Looking back on a time period that is hauntingly near to him, Taylor delves into relationships he's had that have left him bruised, broken and oft times calloused and caustic, whilst exploring the trials of being broke, rudderless and confused with adulthood. Everyone has seen or read a love story; this is not a love story. This is a story of quasi love, of unrequited feelings and spurned advances. Despite the afflictions and sorrow, the story is told in a humorous and often optimistic tone. Though the author talks about many girls, the bulk of the text is about or returns its focus to one girl, the one that got away. Will Taylor find his way back to this dame, or will he be doomed to an impecunious life of lust and loneliness?

Phil Collins pulls no punches--about himself, his life, or the ecstasy and heartbreak that's inspired his music. In his much-awaited memoir, Not Dead Yet, he tells the story of his epic career, with an auspicious debut at age 11 in a crowd shot from the Beatles' legendary film A Hard Day's Night. A drummer since almost before he could walk, Collins received on the job training in the seedy, thrilling bars and clubs of 1960s swinging London before finally landing the drum seat in Genesis. Soon, he would step into the spotlight on vocals after the departure of Peter Gabriel and begin to stockpile the songs that would rocket him to international fame with the release of Face Value and "In the Air Tonight." Whether he's recalling jamming with Eric Clapton and Robert Plant, pulling together a big band fronted by Tony Bennett, or writing the music for Disney's smash-hit animated Tarzan, Collins's storytelling chops never waver. And of course he answers the pressing question on everyone's mind: just what does "Sussudio" mean? Not Dead Yet is Phil Collins's candid, witty, unvarnished story of the songs and shows, the hits and pans, his marriages and divorces, the ascents to the top of the charts and into the tabloid headlines. As one of only three musicians to sell 100 million records both in a group and as a solo artist, Collins breathes rare air, but has never lost his touch at crafting songs from the heart that touch listeners around the globe. That same touch is on magnificent display here, especially as he unfolds his harrowing descent into darkness after his "official" retirement in 2007, and the profound, enduring love that helped save him. This is Phil Collins as you've always known him, but also as you've never heard him before.

He talks about what Parkinson's has given him: the chance to appreciate a wonderful life and career, and the opportunity to help search for a cure and spread public awareness of the disease. He feels as if he is a very lucky man indeed.
