'The thing about hitting bottom is that, in the middle of it, sometimes you don't know if you're really hitting bottom or just bouncing off ledges on your way further down.' Charlie Teller is a ghostwriter of best-selling celebrity autobiographies, until an affair and a fraud destroy his marriage and career. He's given a rare chance to start over, but just as he begins, Charlie finds himself the only witness to a friend's murder and is drawn into the investigation. Now someone has Charlie in his sights, and Charlie doesn't know if it's Eddie Mahler, a wise-guy police detective, or Vincent, a laconic ex-Special Forces soldier, or Kenny McDonald, a once famous pop singer turned deranged coke dealer. And, as he uncovers the truth of his friend's life, Charlie is brought face to face with his own past, remembered through his association with the subjects of his books: an aging novelist, a rock musician, a film star . . . Set in the towns and back roads of Northern California wine country, Teller is a mystery and a surprising novel about the meaning of memoir and the stories we tell ourselves about who we are.

Funeral Games in Honor of Arthur Vincent Lourié
69,90 CHF *

Funeral Games in Honor of Arthur Vincent Lourié explores the varied aesthetic impulses and ever-evolving personal motivations of Russian composer Arthur Lourié. A St. Petersburg native allied with the Futurist movement and profoundly sympathetic to Silver Age decadence, Lourié was swept away by the Revolution; he surfaced as a Communist commissar of music before landing in Europe and America, where his career foundered. Making his way by serving others, he became Stravinsky's right-hand man, Serge Koussevitsky's ghostwriter, and philosopher Jacques Maritain's muse. Lourié left his mark on the poems of Anna Akhmatova, on the neoclassical aesthetics of Stravinsky, on Eurasianism, and on Maritain's NeoThomist musings about music. Lourié serves as a flawless lens through which aspects of Silver Age Russia, early Bolshevik rule, and the cultural space of exile come into sharper focus. But this interdisciplinary collection of essays, edited by musicologists Klára Móricz and Simon Morrison, also looks at Lourié himself as an artist and intellectual in his own right. Much of the aesthetic and technical discussion concerns his grandly eulogistic opera The Blackamoor of Peter the Great, understood as both a belated Symbolist work and as a NeoThomist exercise. Despite the importance Lourié attached to the opera as his masterwork, Blackamoor has never been performed, its fate thus serving as an emblem of Lourié's own. Yet even if Lourié seems to have been destined to be but a footnote in the pages of music history, he looms large in studies of emigration and cultural memory. Here Lourié's life, like his last opera, is presented as a meditation on the circumstances and psychology of exile. Ultimately, these essays recover a lost realm of musical and aesthetic possibilities-a Russia that Lourié, and the world, saw disappear.
