Over a couple of cold ones at the local pub, the good doctor and i burst out simultaneously: "I found this incredible book! You've got to read it!" It was, of course, Quammen. That's the kind of reaction this writer generates. His prose seizes your attention as he gently leads you into deserts, mountainous jungles, riverside woodlands and isolated islands in the Pacific.

"The young folks", che dà il titolo alla raccolta, è la primissima prova letteraria del giovane Salinger: un indimenticabile, ironico e spietato ritratto di due ragazzi dell'alta società newyorkese. Il secondo racconto, "Go see Eddie", apparve sul giornale dell'università (The University of Kansas city Review). Il terzo, "Once a week won't kill you", fu stampato nel 1944, di nuovo per Story magazine. Questa piccola raccolta, anticipa i grandi temi e le ambientazioni delle opere successive: la solitudine, la difficoltà e le follie della giovinezza, la ricerca di libertà e la speranza nel futuro, la necessità di riparare nel mondo favoloso dell'infanzia. I racconti sono pervasi dall'inconfondibile atmosfera di New York alla fine degli anni Quaranta.

F. R. David (born Elli Robert Fitoussi David, 1 January 1947, Menzel Bourguiba, Tunisia) is a Tunisian-born Jewish French singer, best known for his 1982 hit single "Words (Don't Come Easy)".
F. R. David began his career as Robert Fitoussi, a Tunisian Jew singer-songwriter and guitarist with French garage band Les Trèfles. After one E.P., they mutated into Les Boots, but achieved very little commercial success. Adopting his new stage name, he went solo in 1967 and recorded some orchestral pop psych with Michel Colombier, including a version of The Beatles' "Strawberry Fields Forever" (Il Est Plus Facile). He enjoyed minor hits with the Éric Charden penned "Symphonie" and a cover of The Bee Gees' "Sir Geoffrey Saved the World", but this success did not last.

After the successful "Saisons" of Felicien David, Christophe Coin and the Mosaic Quartet continues to explore the work of the french composer. This is the case with chamber music from Felicien David deeply rooted in its century waltz between lounge, oriental exoticism and German Romanticism, all embedded in a melodic freshness, some shades and a deep melancholy feelings unsuspected. Music historians have described David as a ‘satellite’ of Berlioz, and though the two composer’s did not know each other, they were aware of each others compositional output. David produced a significant amount of music for more modest performing forces, examples of which are featured on this release.

After trying her hand at writing her own vintage-inspired material with 2014's Into Colour, singer Rumer returns to her core inspiration of covering classic '60s and '70s pop with 2016's sophisticated This Girl's in Love (A Bacharach & David Songbook). Produced by her husband and longtime collaborator Rob Shirakbari at Capitol Studios, This Girl's in Love finds Rumer applying her supple vocals and soft-focus aesthetic to songs written by the legendary team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. While Rumer has most certainly sung many of these songs in live settings, it's surprising, given her association with the time period, that she's never actually recorded any of this material in the past…
