Tutto comincia con l'amore, l'"esplosione solare che ti distrugge la vita e rende abitabili i deserti", ma che col tempo può diventare un banale martedì. È allora che Ari, poeta di vocazione ed editore di successo, manda tutto in frantumi, tradisce sua moglie e i tre figli e fugge dall'Islanda. È allora che sua nonna Margrét, un secolo prima, ritorna dal Canada piena di sogni, si toglie il suo vestito americano per il marito che ha scelto, ma si ritrova soffocata da un villaggio di pescatori che destina l'uomo al mare e la donna a un'inerte solitudine. L'urgente ricerca di se stessi e della felicità guida questa insolita storia famigliare, che procede a flashback nel tempo attraverso i due angoli opposti d'Islanda, da un arcaico fiordo dell'est alla piana di Keflavík,, che ha avuto il suo unico periodo di splendore all'epoca della controversa base americana, quando navi cariche di prodotti mai visti venivano accolte come ponti verso tempi moderni..

Martha è per tutti «la bambina della valigia». Da Parigi, è arrivata a Liverpool tutta sola, senza una madre e un padre a tenerla per mano e in una culla un po' speciale: una calda e morbida valigia. Da allora, non ha più lasciato l'affollata stazione e ne ha fatto il suo regno personale. Qui raccoglie tutti i libri che i viaggiatori distratti si dimenticano o abbandonano di proposito. Sono libri che le somigliano molto. Anche loro, proprio come lei, cercano una casa e qualcuno che se ne prenda cura con amore. Così, Martha li custodisce gelosamente in una biblioteca fornitissima, a cui solo lei ha accesso, e con loro stabilisce un dialogo silenzioso nella speranza di scoprire qualcosa di più sui legittimi proprietari. Nella speranza di trovare tra quelle pagine piccole tracce che la conducano ai suoi genitori. È convinta che prima o poi riuscirà a riabbracciarli. Deve solo avere fiducia e continuare a cercare..

In 1990, when most of the original members of Yes were working under the name Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe for legal reasons, Jon Anderson recorded a batch of demos for what would have been the second ABWH album. When the band reunited with Chris Squire under their original moniker, the ABWH project was abandoned, and the songs fell between the cracks. This collection preserves those demos as a part of Yes history. The arrangements are fairly bare-bones, mostly electronic, but one can imagine the elaborate sonic garments of the Yes men being draped over the skeletons of these songs without too much effort.

Da "Una cosa divertente che non farò mai più" a "Considera l'aragosta"; da "Tennis, TV, trigonometria e tornado" a "Il tennis come esperienza religiosa", il saggio letterario e il reportage hanno segnato, in un contrappunto continuo con le opere narrative, la carriera di David Foster Wallace. Questo corposo volume raccoglie tutta la sua non-fiction inedita, che spazia dalle riflessioni sull'arte, e il suo ruolo nel mondo di fine millennio, a considerazioni sul cinema e note di costume. E include due importanti interviste, nonché un'esilarante conversazione con il grande regista Gus Van Sant. Un'altra occasione per confrontarsi con il talento di DFW, e per conoscere nuovi dettagli del suo modo di intendere la letteratura e di ridisegnarne i confini.

This is an oddity: a Christmas album incognito. Save a red and green stripe on the back cover, the outside packaging is conspicuously devoid of the usual holiday trappings, leaving the astute person to deduce from the track listing Three Ships' true intent. Further complicating matters is the fact that half of the songs are new compositions from Jon Anderson, none of which have holiday-related titles (unless "Forest of Fire" warms your holiday chestnuts). On listening to this, the songs themselves do little to clear up the confusion; while the traditional tunes ("Three Ships," "The Holly and the Ivy") are obviously Christmas songs, the new compositions are spiritual in Anderson's typically general sense and rarely address Christmastime directly…

In 1988, Jon Anderson quit Yes for the second time and released his first regular solo album in six years, In The City Of Angels. Stewart Levine, best known for his work with Culture Club, was brought in to produce; Anderson worked with a team of L.A. session stars and wrote a couple of songs with ex-Motown ace Lamont Dozier. All of this seemed to portend a more commercial-sounding, straightahead pop effort from the usually ethereal Anderson. The result is about half and half: when writing with Dozier, Anderson expresses conventional romantic sentiments, for which he doesn't really have a feel. His tenor is so chaste and angelic, it's hard for him to be believable on earthly love songs. And soon enough, especially on later tracks, Anderson is once again in spiritual outer space, where he seems most comfortable. The compromise, however, did not appeal to fans, who avoided this album.

Jon Anderson's voice immersed in South American music might seem an unlikely match, but the rich and vibrant tones of Deseo provide a strikingly fresh setting for the singer. Augmented by well-known artists from across South and Latin America, the Yes vocalist seems content to recede into the background on many of the tracks, retaining a native flavor with stellar cameos from Maria Conchita Alonso, Boca Livre, Milton Nascimento, and many others. The songs, which generally clock in around three-and-a-half minutes, are warm and upbeat, mixing English, Portuguese, and Spanish vocals with propulsive percussion, acoustic guitars, bass, and synthesizers…

A concept album, Jon Anderson's (Yes) "Toltec" is made up of 13 cuts divided into three parts. It tells the tale of the Toltec, a Native American concept of a group of people who have been all over the Earth, existing within different cultures throughout the centuries. They are described in the liner as "Creators of the circles of power, color, perfume, and music healing domes." Musically, this one is arguably Anderson's most ambitious solo effort. It is set in a style that is definitely progressive rock, but focuses less on the rock and more on other elements. Among those elements are new age (no surprise as the CD was released on the Windham Hill label), world music, electronic, and even jazz…

In one sense, it's heartening that Jon Anderson has decided to explore music far outside the confines of Yes on his solo albums - and it would have been even better if the album actually worked. On 1994's Deseo, he delved into Latin music, and he returns to that territory on The More You Know, adding elements of worldbeat and smooth soul to the mix. Coming from Anderson, it's a bit of a surprise, albeit a welcome one, and for a few songs, the entire enterprise sounds quite promising. By the end of the disc, it almost collapses under its own weight, since Anderson relies more on sound than songs. Still, the very fact that he's trying something new is quite exciting, and the handful of songs that work make The More You Know worth a listen from hardcore fans.
