In Tom Wolfe´s hands, the strange saga of American architecture in the 20th century makes for both high comedy and intellectual excitement. This is his sequel to The Painted Word, the book that caused such a furor in the art world five years before. Once again Wolfe shows how social and intellectual fashions have determined aesthetic form in our time and how willingly the creators have abandoned personal vision and originality in order to work a la mode. 1.

This book is not a dictionary, though it tells you all you need know about everything from authenticity to zips. It´s not an autobiography, though it does offer a revealing and highly personal inside view of contemporary culture. It´s an essential tool kit for understanding the world around us. It´s about what makes a Warhol a genuine fake; the creation of national identities; the mania to collect. It´s also about the city as seen from the rearview mirror of Grand Theft Auto V, digital ornament and why we value imperfection. It´s about drinking a bruisingly dry martini in Adolf Loo´s American bar in Vienna and about Hitchcock´s film sets. It´s about the modern world of fashion, technology, design and art. Born in London, Deyan Sudjic studied architecture in Edinburgh, edited Domus in Milan and was the director of the Venice architecture biennale and a curator in Glasgow, Istanbul and Copenhagen. The author of The Language of Things and The Edifice Complex, Deyan Sudjic is now director of the Design Museum, London. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Morgan.

The new novel from Booker Prize-shortlisted Philip Hensher - his most ambitious and daring novel yet. An astonishing novel, The Emperor Waltz draws together various narrative strands into a compelling symphonic whole. In a third-century desert settlement on the fringes of the Roman Empire, a new wife becomes fascinated by a cult that is persecuted by the Emperor Diocletian. In 1922, Christian, a young artist, travels to Weimar to begin his studies at the Bauhaus, where the avant-garde confronts conservative elements around it. With postwar Germany in turmoil, while the Bauhaus attempts to explore radical ways of thinking and living, Christian finds that love will change him forever. And in 1970s London Duncan uses his inheritance to establish the country´s first gay bookshop in the face of opposition from the neighbours and victimisation by the police. Delving deep into the human spirit to explore connections between love, sanctity, commitment and virtue, Philip Hensher takes as his subject small groups of men and women, tightly bound together, trying to change the world through the example of their lives. The Emperor Waltz is an absorbing echo-chamber of a novel, innovative and compelling, that explores what it means for us to belong to each other. 1. Language: English.
