Book Summary: L'histoire de l'ascension fulgurante et sublime de l'un des plus grands artistes de tous les temps, écrite de sa main et accompagnée de photos inédites, collages originaux et textes de chansons. Prince était un génie musical, un visionnaire exceptionnel. Sa créativité était telle qu'il embrassait tous les univers, du paradis sexy, brut et funk de " Uptown " aux paysages mythiques de Purple Rain. Mais son entreprise la plus ambitieuse fut de transformer un petit gamin du Minnesota en Prince, l'un des musiciens les plus aimés, accomplis et acclamés de notre temps. Comment Prince est devenu Prince. Cet ouvrage comprend les textes autobiographiques que Prince a rédigés avant sa mort, des pages de prose lyrique qui nous transportent dans le monde de son enfance ; sous forme de scrapbook, on y découvre ses débuts dans la musique, avant la sortie de son premier disque ; une série de photos personnelles illustrent l'évolution de l'artiste jusqu'à son avènement ; les documents originaux liés à Purple Rain – l'étape finale de l'autocréation de Prince – sont aussi réunis ici. Dans une introduction émouvante, Dan Piepenbring raconte sa collaboration avec l'artiste dans les derniers mois de sa vie, une période où celui-ci réfléchissait à une manière différente de s'exprimer et de diffuser ses idées, tout en conservant son mystère et sa mystique. The Beautiful Ones n'est pas seulement un hommage à une icône universelle, c'est une véritable oeuvre de création littéraire, reflétant la vision artistique de Prince, sa voix et son image – son dernier cadeau au monde.

Book Summary: A daring fraud makes one man a titan, and brings a nation to its knees The son of a failing undertaker, Alves Reis learned early on that death comes quickly and a man must make his fortune while he can. In 1916, Reis left Portugal for Angola, where the hardships of colonial life dashed his dream of easy riches. In desperate straits, Alves discovers his true talent: forgery. With an unerring hand, Alves begins to counterfeit. He falsifies diplomas, government documents, currency, and countless checks on his way to perpetrating one of the greatest frauds of the twentieth century. Inspired by the true story of a master swindler, Gifford brings to life a breathtaking international scam. Before Bernie Madoff, before Frank Abagnale, there was Alves Reis—a forger with talent, vision, and an uncompromising drive to succeed, no matter what man, bank, or nation stood in his way.

Book Summary: This book is part of the Corner Series. Excerpt from book: The town itself was one that stood at the foot of Virginia's blue mountains. The house where the Corners lived was on the edge of the town, facing a street which ended at the front gate. At the side of the garden another long street wound its way uphill and was called the old County Road when it began to go down grade. The house was a rambling old affair which had not been painted for some years and was, therefore, of an indescribable hue. One wing was shut up, but the remainder was made excellent use of by four lively girls, of whom the eldest was Nancy Weston. She was variously known as Nan, Nance or Nannie, though she greatly preferred Nannette and sometimes stealthily signed herself so. When she was, as her Cousin Phil expressed it, "on the bias," he often delighted to tease her by calling her Sharp Corner, but her Aunt Sarah often declared that West Corner suited her perfectly since from that quarter sprang up the briskest, as well as the most agreeable, of breezes. Next to Nan came Mary Lee. She was always called by both names as is a Virginia custom. After Mary Lee came Jacqueline, or Jack as she was called, and her twin sister, Jean. Mary Lee was very unlike Nan, and though there was less than two years difference in their ages, she seemed the older of the two. She was less impetuous, more quiet and reserved, though more self-absorbed and less thoughtful for others. Neither was she so original as Nan and generally followed some one's lead, most frequently that of her Cousin Phil Lewis who was her special comrade, for Mary Lee adored open-air sports, especially boyish ones. Nan liked these intermittently, though when she did enter into them she was liable to be more daring and impetuous than her sister. Phil lived scarce a block away and, since the confines of his own dooryard were limited, he preferred to spend much of his time within the larger range of his cousins' three acres. He and Mary Lee were about the same age and had many tastes in common; both were devoted to animals, and had a tendency to fads over which they became very enthusiastic for the time being. Phil was a wiry, dark, little fellow quite Mary Lee's opposite, she being fair-haired and blue-eyed with a slow drawl in speaking. Nan spoke more nervously when she was excited, though she, too, spoke with a lingering accent upon certain words. Nan's eyes were sometimes a grayish blue, sometimes almost a hazel, and at times showed the color of deep and tranquil pools of water, an indescribable hue. Their expression changed as did their color and when languidly drooped under their long dark lashes, seemed those of a sentimental romantic maid, but, when in moments of excitement, Nan opened them wide, they glowed like two stars. Her eyes were Nan's best feature. She did not possess a straight nose like Mary Lee's nor such a rosebud of a mouth, but her flashing smile showed even, white little teeth, and the oval of her face was perfect. The twins were much alike in coloring and feature, but in expression were so different that even the most casual observer could not fail to distinguish Jack from Jean. They had blue eyes like Mary Lee but were dark-haired like Nan. Jack was, as Aunt Sarah Dent expressed it, "a pickle." She had a dreamy pathetic countenance and wore a saintly expression when she was plotting her worst mischief. At her best she was angelic; at her worst she was impish, and just how she would eventually turn out no one could foretell. Jean was a sweet-tempered, affectionate child, gentle and obedient. Once in a while it seemed as if she felt it a duty to be naughty, but the naughtiness was always as if it were a pretense, and was more of a bluster than an exhibition of actual original sin. "There is no mistake that Jack is full of the old Adam," Aunt Sarah was wont to declare, "but Jean always acts to me as if she wasn't quite sure that she ought to be human."

Book Summary: A chance meeting, a misunderstanding, and a second chance for a royal love affair... Once, King Gabriel was bewitched by a violet–eyed beauty at a masquerade ball, but she left the function without a trace...not even a slipper. Now, Cinderella has a name. Fate has thrown India Hamilton right in Gabriel's path, and he's determined to expose her as the gold–digger he knows her to be. But Gabriel's attempt at revenge soon loses its appeal as he spends more time with India. Her generous actions and smart control of his sister's foundation suggest a strong, kind woman, undeserving of his scorn and anger. It soon becomes clear that this is not a Cinderella story at all: India is a beauty, and Gabriel has been behaving like a beast.
