The Sunday Times Bestseller and Winner of the NME Best Book Award 2017 Few groups have had a bigger impact than The Smiths and few musicians are as celebrated as Johnny Marr. He is an icon who defined an era and influenced a generation of guitarists. His signature sound was crucial to the Smiths success, but tensions within the band led to his departure in 1987 and the end of the group after just four albums. He was twenty-three years old. Since then, Marr hasn’t stopped pushing the boundaries of music. He joined The Pretenders, The The, Modest Mouse and The Cribs and has collaborated with Hans Zimmer. Here, for the first time, he tells his own side of the story. Honest, witty, and moving, Set the Boy Free is the true history of music – told by one of its very own legends. 'I saw Johnny Marr live in person, with The Smiths. He was light on his feet; like quicksilver. He caused the band to swing like crazy. And he smoked his cigarette like a star. I've been influenced ever since.' Iggy Pop

UMA JORNADA NA MENTE CRIATIVA DE JOHNNY MARR, MÚSICO QUE INFLUENCIOU UMA GERAÇÃO DE GUITARRISTAS DESDE THE SMITHS. "Nunca descobri por que me sentia tão atraído pela guitarra quando era criança e por que ela me acompanhou por toda minha vida. Ser guitarrista tem sido minha identidade, para o mundo e para mim mesmo. Tem sido desse jeito desde que vi a primeira em uma vitrine aos cinco anos, e não conheço uma vida diferente disso desde aquele momento." Início da década de 1980, subúrbios de Manchester. O guitarrista jovem Johnny Marr bate à porta de Steven Morrissey, cantor semidesconhecido, alguns anos mais velho que ele, e o convida para fundar uma banda juntos. Desse encontro, nasce um dos grupos de rock mais famosos de todos os tempos: The Smiths. Poucas bandas tiveram tanto impacto quanto The Smiths e poucos músicos são tão celebrados quanto Johnny Marr. No entanto, A autobiografia não é apenas a história de uma das bandas icônicas dos anos 1980. É a história de um menino que cresceu em uma família irlandesa, operária e católica, que rapidamente descobre o poder da música e da arte. É a história de um adolescente que observa com curiosidade e entusiasmo as grandes mudanças sociais na Inglaterra pós-industrial, os movimentos da contracultura juvenil, os novos gêneros musicais — do glam rock ao punk e à new wave. E é também a história de um músico já maduro, que, após a dissolução, dos Smiths não tem medo de tomar novos caminhos. Desde então, Marr não parou de explorar os limites da música. Ele se juntou a bandas como The Pretenders, Modest Mouse, The The e The Cribs, além de ter colaborado com Hans Zimmer. Aqui, pela primeira vez, ele conta sua versão da história. Alternando memórias pessoais, insights musicais e reflexões sobre a sociedade e os costumes, esta obra é uma jornada em uma das mentes criativas mais férteis da música pop contemporânea.

More than twenty years ago, Pep Torres was involved in a catastrophic auto accident in which his heart stopped. He found himself on the outskirts of the afterlife, in a strange limbo he called the Boulevard of the Dead. On the Outskirts of Heaven is the story of Torres’s remarkable and redemptive near-death journey and his purpose-driven return to the land of the living. It is an epic tale of soul retrieval and of rediscovering our purpose in life. Most importantly, On the Outskirts of Heaven touches upon a shocking revelation: that all of mankind is mesmerized by a matrix-like illusion that enslaves us all. But there is hope in the end that by answering our calling and pursuing our dreams, we can free ourselves from this illusion and become closer to God.

Positive Chain Reaction is a narrative on chapters and characters from the living Bible. It tries to bring, above as the name of the book implies, a positive chain reaction in our society, because it deals with difficulties and emotions that go with any reaction experienced universally. It goes without saying that those in the biblical past had similar situations and adversities that we are experiencing today. Through Positive Chain Reaction, I tried to teach and convey lessons in life by identification with the characters and bring across possible solutions on how to deal with difficulties and at the same time overcome it. It gives way to very easy reading, and those who find it difficult to read the Bible will find it as an introduction. Hopefully the readers will be stimulated and will begin to search for more, leading them to read the Bible.

This book is an extensive study of the figure of the lost child in English-speaking and European literature and culture. It argues that the lost child figure is of profound importance for our society, a symptom as well as a cause of deep trauma. This trauma, or void, is a fundamental disruption of the structures that define us: self, history, and even language. This puts the figure of the child in context with previous research that the modern conception of ‘a child’ was formed alongside modern conceptions of memory. The book analyses the representation of the lost child, through fairy tales, historical oppression and in recent novels and films. The book then studies the connection of the lost child figure with the uncanny and its centrality to language. The book considers the lost child figure as an archetype on a metaphysical and philosophical level as well as cultural.

Healing all manner of disease applies to the spiritual as well as the mental and physical . . . our business is of bringing the sin-sick face to face with the One Healer.
