This week’s music pick is from a rocker who left many women in my generation breathless! (I’ve seen him in concert more than my husband cares to know.) Yes, Mr. Lenny Kravitz is back! Also, transport yourself to 18th century Japan with RM Reader Pick, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet.
Black and White in America by Lenny Kravitz
Black and White in America isn’t due out until August 2011, but Lenny’s single “Stand” is soon to be released and marks the re-entry of a rocker, who effortlessly blends rock, funk, reggae, and folk. Do you remember Are You Gonna Go My Way, American Woman, and I Belong to You? I can still see Mr. Kravitz with his shrunk-wrap jeans and his too-cool-for-school attitude singing like every word is coming straight from the heart. While his bad-boy image has become a little tiresome, he still puts on a great show. Fingers and toes crossed he’ll be on tour again!
Thanks to my Editorial Assistant, Elysha Schickel, you can click the link to listen to the new single, “Stand.”
The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell
RM Reader Pick!
“This is a beautifully written tale set in 18th Century Japan about a young man employed by the Dutch East India Company. It is part love story, part mystery and part historical novel. I loved it because the prose is just gorgeous and the story is genuinely riveting. David Mitchell is a genius as far as I’m concerned and so versatile…” –Denise Tomlinson, Lawyer & avid reader – Cayman Islands
