Massive Attack - Mezzanine
"Masterfully crafted songs with diverse musical textures and the incredible voice of Skye Edwards. Sound quality is superb with a touch of analogue like distortion on some tracks which is quite pleasant. Wistful loops, palliative beats, intimate vocals, B-movie strings and underwater guitars point Portisheadwards but, thankfully, Morcheeba's recipe serves up
some refreshingly un-Bristolian flavours. The Sea - liquid wah-wah guitar, icy violins and raindrop piano - opens proceedings, a delicious setting interrupted only by Edwards's over-earnest mockneyisms." (David Sheppard -- © Emap Consumer Magazines Limited)

Thelonious Monk - Epistrophy, Vol. 2
Bassist Charles Mingus was one of the great figures in modern jazz. Raised in Los Angeles, he was a devotee of Duke Ellington, whose compositional style had an unsurpassed effect on the young composer. As a player, however, Mingus was drawn to his contemporaries, who included Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, Charlie Parker, and Max Roach (Roach and Mingus co-owned their own Debut Records during the '50s). Perhaps his greatest contribution was bridging the gap between those two generations: in Mingus's music, one could always explicitly hear the continuity between the big bands and the bebop era, the affinity between the romantic and the modern. Mingus Ah Um is the best introduction to his work as a soloist and composer ("Better Git It in Your Soul", "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat", "Fables of Faubus", "Self-Portrait in Three Colors"...)
Charles Mingus - Pithecanthropus Erectus 1955-57
A Man in Full by Tom Wolfe
A great portrait of the American scene from the author of Bonfire of the Vanities.Monster

the horrific killings.
A blend of scifi and erotic fantasy.
Richard Stark aka Donald E. Westlake - Man With the Getaway Face
Donald E. Westlake has many names and sometimes seems to be everywhere all at once. In the field of crime literature, Westlake has few peers, a legion of admirers, and innumerable imitators. Since the 1960 publication of his smash debut The Mercenaries, he's written more than 70 novels (40-something under his own name and dozens more under a gaggle of pseudonyms), including two of the best crime fiction series ever written, and dozens of one-shot genre-twisting classics.Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem
Lethem's delirious yarn about crime, pursuit, and punishment, is narrated in a unique voice by its embattled protagonist, Brooklynite (and orphan) Lionel Essrog, aka "Freakshow.'' In portraying a would-be detective with Tourettes syndrome, Jonathan Lethem has created a whole new rhythm and syncopation to his prose, a truly brilliant way to write a novel that comes from the viewpoint of man who cannot be still. If you have ever wondered how a Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammett novel would read if Haruki Murakami did the editing, then you really need this book.
Best authors of the 20th Century
Iris Murdoch - The Black Prince
After Bruno's Dream, The Sacred and Profane Love Machine and The Green
Knight, Iris Murdoch has produced another brilliant novel. Out
of the blue, in The
Black Prince the arrow of Eros strikes again and again permanently altering the
course of the events. It's half a commedy, half a tale of despair in the human condition.
Toni Morrison - Beloved
A dead child, a runaway slave, a terrible secret--these are the central concerns of Beloved.
Thomas Mann - Buddenbrooks: The Decline of a Family
Buddenbrooks, first published in Germany in 1900, when Mann was twenty-five, has become a classic of modem literature -- the story of four generations of a wealthy bourgeois family in northern Germany. With consummate skill, Mann draws a rounded picture of middle-class life: births and christenings; marriages, divorces... It's Thomas Mann's first great novel, one of the two for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1929.
