What is the most baffling period in our lives? Not childhood, not old age, but the decades of our 40s and 50s, the period now generously known as middle age. It's both an occasion for regret and an opportunity for coming to terms, the moment when we come up against our limits and discover, for better and worse, who we are. My Life in the Middle Ages is a portrait of what that unnerving experience is like. A collection of unified pieces about the pleasures and pathos that attend the threshold of old age, it charts an original course between reportage and confession. Drawn from the author's own life, from the testimony of parents, children, teachers, and friends, from the books he's read and the life that he chose, and that chose him, My Life in the Middle Ages is a comic and poignant memoir that's both personal and generational. Whether he is struggling with God (or trying to find out if he believes in one), celebrating the books he's loved and regretting those he'll never read, leafing through the snapshots in his family album and marveling at the passage of time, or parsing the fine points of success and failure, James Atlas is always alert to the surprises of everyday life. At once pensive and funny, lighthearted and profound, My Life in the Middle Ages is a tale of survival, but also a meditation on how it feels to flourish, and how to live. 1. Language: English.

The Clark Family Experience was an American country music band composed of six brothers, all with the surname Clark: Alan (guitar, vocals), Aaron (bass guitar, vocals), Adam (mandolin, vocals), Ashley (fiddle), Andrew (drums), and Austin (lap steel guitar, keyboards), all natives of the state of Virginia. Signed to Curb Records in 2000, The Clark Family Experience debuted on the American country music scene that year with the release of their single "Meanwhile Back at the Ranch". A Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts, the song also became the thirteenth highest-selling single in the history of country music at the time. "Meanwhile Back at the Ranch" was the first of four chart singles from their self-titled debut album, released in 2000 as well. Due to a series of financial problems, however, the band declared bankruptcy and broke up later that year.

"Billie Jean" is a dance-pop R&B song by American recording artist Michael Jackson. It was written by Jackson and produced by Quincy Jones for the singer's sixth solo album, Thriller (1982). Originally disliked by Jones, the track was almost removed from the album after he and Jackson had numerous disagreements. The song's lyrics refer to a real-life experience, in which a mentally ill female fan claimed that Jackson had fathered one of her twins. The song is well known for its distinctive bass line and Jackson's vocal hiccups. The song was mixed 91 times by Bruce Swedien before it was finalized. Following the successful chart performance of "The Girl Is Mine", "Billie Jean" was released on January 2, 1983, as the album's second single. "Billie Jean" was a worldwide commercial and critical success, it became one of the best-selling singles of 1983, and topped both the US and UK charts simultaneously. Cited as one of the most revolutionary songs in history, "Billie Jean" was certified platinum in 1989.

D:ream hatten zwei TOP 5 Alben & diverse TOP 10 Single Chart Entrys in UK ! Hier das neue Album der klassischen Pop & Dance Band ! Zwei Deutschlandtouren mit Take That & Charts Top 20 hier zu Lande in den 90-ern.nnWith the original line-up not seen since 1995, D:Ream are set to return with the release of their brand new album, In Memory Of in March 2011. The act, comprised of DJ Alan Mackenzie and singer Peter Cunnah, will be embarking on a full UK tour, beginning March 10th. With two top five albums and a string of top 10 singles, including the iconic Things Can Only Get Better , the act went their separate ways in 1995. After a chance meeting in 2008, Alan and Peter began working on some new tracks together which take their trademark sound to new levels. Peter says: We ve been away from the charts for some time now and a lot has happened, so we needed to make music that was both relevant, but yet still D:Ream. With In Memory Of I truly believe we ve done that. Incorporating their original electronic influences with live instruments, D:Ream s new sound is a more organic experience, but still retains the anthemic and uplifting moods which earned the act so much praise in the 1990s. Also present on the new album is original member, the physician Brian Cox, playing keyboard on two of the tracks. Known more for his involvement in BBC science programmes and his BBC Radio 4 show The Infinite Monkey Cage, he rejoins his old bandmates featuring on the forthcoming single Gods in the Making , released February 2011.

Widely regarded as the finest poet of his generation, Seamus Heaney is the subject of numerous critical studies, but no book-length portrait has appeared before now. Through his own lively and eloquent reminiscences, 'Stepping Stones 'retraces the poet's steps from his first exploratory testing of the ground as an infant to what he called his 'moon-walk' to the podium to receive the 1995 Nobel Prize in Literature. It also fascinatingly charts his post-Nobel life and is supplemented with a number of photographs, many from the Heaney family album and published here for the first time. In response to firm but subtle questioning from Dennis O'Driscoll, Heaney sheds a personal light on his work (poems, essays, translations, plays) and on the artistic and ethical challenges he faced during the dark years of the Ulster Troubles. Combining the spontaneity of animated conversation with the considered qualities of the best autobiographical writing, 'Stepping Stones 'provides an original, diverting, and absorbing store of reflections and recollections. Scholars and general readers alike are brought closer to the work, life, and creative development of a charismatic and lavishly gifted poet whose latest collection, 'District and Circle,' was awarded the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2007. ''Stepping Stones'--a conversation-style response to questions submitted over the years by Dennis O'Driscoll--is an outspoken oral work of art.'--Karl Miller, 'The Times Literary Supplement' ''Stepping Stones: Interviews With Seamus Heaney,' poet Dennis O'Driscoll's extraordinary book, takes its title from the place in Heaney's Nobel lecture where he observes that both his writing and his life can be seen as 'a journey where each point of arrival . . . turned out to be a stepping-stone rather than a destination, ' and the emphasis on continuing process informs it from beginning to end. The book's form is that of extended interviews, conducted (largely in writing) over a period of years, in which the interviewer, O'Driscoll, defines his role as that of prompter rather than interrogator. Its purpose--in the continuing absence of any substantial biography--is to present interviews, freed from space limitations, that might come to comprise 'a comprehensive portrait of the man and his times'--and, of course, of the work itself. (Heaney's only stipulation was that he would not speak in analytic detail of any of the poems, though he does cite particular aspects of many, and to dazzling effect.) O'Driscoll calls the book 'a survey of [Heaney's] life, often using the poems as reference points, ' thus providing 'a biographical context for the poems and a poetry-based account of the life.' For this reason he is right to find the result 'very much a book for readers of [Heaney's] oeuvre.' But it is much, much more. Many-leveled, it is a book that rearranges itself according to the angle of the reader's questioning, and while it will surely send many readers to the poems themselves, whether for the first or the dozenth time, it has, as great autobiography must have, stand-alone value as well. Some of this value is documentary, whether detailing the nuances of Irish cultural politics during the Troubles of the late '60s, or trenchantly evoking the writers and writings that assumed a place in Heaney's development. Richly deployed, this is the stuff of cultural history, and it is inevitably central to Heaney's probing account of his formation as man and poet. What I want to stress here, however, is that the book is more than simply an account of experience; it is itself 'an agency of' experience. You come away from it--at least you can: I did--moved, enlarged and deepened. 'Stepping Stones' consists of three sections, the first evoking in magical detail the poet's childhood on the family farm (Mossbawn) in County Derry--'a small, ordinary, nose-to-the-grindstoney place'--and his subsequent schooling in Belfast. The long central section organizes the intertwinings of life and work through the successive collections of the poems; and the third--the briefest--brings the account up to date, describing the poet's stroke in 2006, his recovery, and his view of the world on the eve of his 70th birthday . . . This is not only a radically original book; in its own quiet way it is
