RM Books & Music – The Devil in the White City & Feist

The Devil in the White City is your chance to try out a non-fiction book without giving up the novels you love! It combines mystery with history in an enthralling read!  And next time you defrost after a snowstorm, curl up with a cup of tea and Feist’s latest album “Metals”!

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic & Madness at the Fair that Changed America - by Erik Larson

This was a book that I could not put down! Not only does it chronicle a fascinating part of U.S. history – complete with stories about Buffalo Bill, the invention of the Ferris Wheel and Cracker Jacks – but it combines it with a gripping, real life murder mystery!

“[Erik Larson] relentlessly fuses history and entertainment to give this nonfiction book the dramatic effect of a novel, complete with abundant cross-cutting and foreshadowing. Mr. Larson has written a dynamic, enveloping book filled with haunting, closely annotated information. And it doesn’t hurt that this truth really is stranger than fiction.” - Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Metals by Feist

“On “Metals,” the Canadian American harnesses all her gifts to create something essential: the matter-of-fact gorgeousness of her voice; the way she mixes complicated emotions with equally complicated arrangements while making it all seem so effortless; and a versatility that allows her to craft a compilation’s worth of sounds and approaches without lapsing into pastiche.” – Randall Roberts, Pop & Hiss – The L.A. Times Music Blog

“…there’s something impressively soft and unspun about Feist’s quirkiness…more often Metals just sounds fantastic: another unique album from an artist more adventurous than suggested by the kind of success she has achieved.” – Alexis Petridis, The Guardian
