Keith Richards Life
A once-in-a-generation memoir of a true music legend In the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards created the riffs, the lyrics and the songs that roused the world, and over four decades he lived the original rock and roll life. Now, at last, the man himself tells us the extraordinary story of life in the crossfire hurricane. In a voice that is uniquely and intimately his own, with the disarming honesty and humour that has always been his trademark, Keith Richards brings us the essential life story of our times, unfettered, fearless and true. Keith Richards was born in Dartford in 1943 and founded the Rolling Stones with Mick Jagger in 1962. He lives in Connecticut.

Robert Hughes Rome
The prize-winning critic takes on the timelessly fascinating city of Rome In this magisteral history Robert Hughes identifies seven distinct episodes in Rome’s cultural history: its Etruscan beginnings; Julius Caesar and the birth of the Imperium; primitive Christianity and the growth of the Church; the Renaissance; the Baroque and the Neo-Classic; the Rome of Fascism and Mussolini; and finally the Rome of the 1960s – the era of Fellini, la dolce vita and paparazzi. With characteristic wit, vigour and insight, Hughes reassesses one of the world’s oldest cities. Australian-born Robert Hughes is the author of numerous influential books including The Shock of the New. He lives in New York, USA.
