Hard bop, the mid-1950s resurgence of bebop, was an eclectic movement that encompassed many diverse styles of music, as Rosenthal ( Loves of the Poets ) spiritedly demonstrates here. His encyclopedic overview covers the accomplishments of the jazz "greats" of the period, from the lyrical compositions of Benny Golson and Gigi Gryce, the soul jazz of saxophonist Stanley Turrentine and the "bad" trumpet of Lee Morgan to the heterodox talents of Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

Riservato, spietato, senza legami, Charlie Monk è l'esecutore ideale per i servizi segreti. Agisce sempre da solo, preciso e affidabile anche nelle situazioni più estreme. Ma Charlie ha un'ossessione: l'immagine di una donna del suo passato che torna a tormentarlo ogni notte. Di cui non riesce a visualizzare il volto. E di cui ha perso ogni traccia. La dottoressa Susan Flemyng è una neurologa che ha messo a punto una tecnica per impiantare memorie artificiali: può recuperare i ricordi danneggiati, ma anche crearne di nuovi. Quando suo marito, di rientro dalla Russia, muore in uno strano incidente aereo e un giornalista che l'ha conosciuto teme per la sua stessa vita, Susan comincia a indagare e scopre che una potente fondazione americana si è impossessata dei risultati delle sue ricerche cliniche, e li sta usando per esperimenti militari. Charlie e Susan ancora non lo sanno, ma i loro destini stanno per scontrarsi.

When Pico Iyer decided to go to Kyoto and live in a monastery, he did so to learn about Zen Buddhism from the inside, to get to know Kyoto, one of the loveliest old cities in the world, and to find out something about Japanese culture today–not the world of businessmen and production lines, but the traditional world of changing seasons and the silence of temples, of the images woven through literature, of the lunar Japan that still lives on behind the rising sun of geopolitical power.
