How do you know if you're on the right track or wasting your time? All Trisha wants to do is create something meaningful. Since she’s in Athens, Georgia, she brings four other women together and the rock band The Forty Watt Flowers are formed. But making good music isn’t easy when life's complications keep getting in the way.
From the jock atmosphere of the garage where they rehearse to the beer-soaked bars where they gig, these five courageous women struggle to find beauty in the mess of notes they try to play and the chaos of their lives.
ABOUT THE HANDMADE BOOK YOU WILL RECEIVE:
This hand-bound book is as much of a story as the words on the pages. The type on the page was designed and set for the love of doing it. The pages are hand-bound and the spine of the contains one used guitar string, its resonance still singing. The cover is a hand-pulled serigraph on cotton, with custom painting flourishes. Pages and binding were assembled to the tunes of an indie playlist. Hidden inside the fabric cover is the cardboard of a classic record album, once held lovingly in someone's arms like a baby. You won't be able to see which album, because like the LPs Jack White put in upholstered sofas, its the hard part inside the cover. But the inside flap contains an image of the album cover used and a listing of key tracks. Visit the website for pics: http://www.fortywattflowers.com/#!mer...

Part manifesto, part revelation, this is the story of an artist struggling with the new rules of exchange in the twenty-first century, both on and off the Internet. THE ART OF ASKING will inspire readers to rethink their own ideas about asking, giving, art, and love.

In a beguiling tale of deception and murder, desire and theft, seduction and betrayal—where nothing is what it appears to be—a man is murdered and an iconic musical instrument is stolen during a gathering at Eliot Sexton’s Park Avenue apartment. The stolen item—an object of desire worshipped by millions—is the key to solving the crime, or so the detective brought in to investigate believes. The murder, however, is not nearly as straightforward as it seems—nor is the theft.
Though the island of Manhattan presents no shortage of suspects—many of them capable of killing to satisfy their appetites—Eliot, a young economic historian and writer, soon becomes the prime suspect. As he draws closer to the truth behind the theft and murder, he also becomes the killer’s next target.
Irreverent, provocative, and utterly unpredictable, Dangerous Illusions is a weeklong polyrhythmic journey into contemporary New York that will keep readers guessing right up to its thrilling conclusion.
