We're really excited to bring you this vast collection of tunes from the American playbook. From Texas swing to blue grass, from Irish tunes carried to Kentucky to chorale works based on classic American poems, from country to rockin' blues - in short, an eclectic list all primed to create a memorable holiday afternoon.
Timely advice from our resident relationship coach - this week on handling the emotional turmoil the holidays can create. (Last week we introduced you to Brenda Lewis - a psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience in the field of sexuality, intimacy, dating and relationships - but if you're new to the site, here's our video interview with her and our review of her new book. The big news is: Brenda has signed on to be our very own counselor, offering advice to reader's questions on all of those juicy topics.
We also have our fearless critic Haig Hovaness on Dave Egger's case regarding his new 'much ballyhooed' book The Circle. Read it and weep for ol' Dave. And the incorrigible Henry Harvey is at it again with another opinion piece on why Retirement is obsolete. (Read his piece Sex is the Answer to Everything, and you'll get why we call him incorrigible:) And we welcome the Kanters, a collaborative duo who travel together and collaborate after the fact on books uniting his photography and her poetry - a transcendant synthesis.
One last note - the Editor has a new blog piece for your consideration as well.
