12. Luciano Pavarotti and Marilyn Horne as guests of Joan Sutherland

Luciano Pavarotti and Marilyn Horne as guests of Joan Sutherland

Luciano Pavarotti (Modena, 12 ottobre 1935 – Modena, 6 settembre 2007) è stato un tenore italiano. È stato tra gli artisti italiani più apprezzati in tutto il mondo grazie alle sue capacità vocali e musicali, nonché per una riuscita gestione del proprio look e della propria immagine mediatica. Insieme a Enrico Caruso, Franco Corelli e Carlo Bergonzi è stato finora l'ultimo dei cantanti lirici italiani di massima notorietà a livello mondiale. Con il Pavarotti & Friends e le sue numerose collaborazioni (fra le quali è da ricordare in particolare la costituzione del gruppo de Tre Tenori, con Plácido Domingo e José Carreras), ha consolidato una popolarità che gli ha dato fama mondiale anche al di fuori dell'ambito musicale

13. The Resurrection Of Joan Ashby by Cherise Wolas, audiobook excerpt

The Resurrection Of Joan Ashby by Cherise Wolas, audiobook excerpt

Listen to an excerpt of Cherise Wolas's The Resurrection of Joan Ashby audiobook, read by Gabra Zackman and Michael Dickes. I viewed the consumptive nature of love as a threat to serious women. But the wonderful man I just married believes as I do - work is paramount, absolutely no children - and now love seems to me quite marvelous. These words are spoken to a rapturous audience by Joan Ashby, a brilliant and intense literary sensation acclaimed for her explosively dark and singular stories. When Joan finds herself unexpectedly pregnant, she is stunned by Martin's delight, his instant betrayal of their pact. She makes a fateful, selfless decision then, to embrace her unintentional family. Challenged by raising two precocious sons, it is decades before she finally completes her masterpiece novel. Poised to reclaim the spotlight, to resume the intended life she gave up for love, a betrayal of Shakespearean proportion forces her to question every choice she has made. Epic, propulsive, incredibly ambitious, and dazzlingly written, The Resurrection of Joan Ashby is a story about sacrifice and motherhood, the burdens of expectation and genius. Cherise Wolas' gorgeous debut introduces an indelible heroine candid about her struggles and unapologetic in her ambition.

The Book of Joan by Melissa Rivers, read by Melissa Rivers

Joan Rivers was known all over the world—from the Palace Theater to Buckingham Palace, from the bright lights of Las Vegas to the footlights of Broadway, from the days of talkies to hosting talk shows. But there was only one person who knew Joan intimately, one person who the authorities would call when she got a little out of hand.  Her daughter and best friend, Melissa.   Joan and Melissa Rivers had one of the most celebrated mother-daughter relationships of all time.  If you think Joan said some outrageous things to her audiences as a comedian, you won’t believe what she said and did in private. Her love for her daughter knew no bounds—or boundaries, apparently. ("Melissa, I acknowledge that you have boundaries. I just choose to not respect them.") In The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief and Manipulation, Melissa shares stories (like when she was nine months old and her parents delivered her to Johnny Carson as a birthday gift), bon mots (“Missy, is there anything better than seeing a really good looking couple pushing a baby that looks like a Sasquatch who got caught in a house fire?”), and life lessons from growing up in the Rosenberg-Rivers household (“I can do tips and discounts and figure out the number of gay men in an audience to make it a good show. That’s all the math you’ll ever need.”). These were just the tip of the iceberg when it came to life in the family that Melissa describes as more Addams than Cleaver. And at the center of it all was a tiny blond force of nature.   In The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief and Manipulation, Melissa Rivers relates funny, poignant and irreverent observations, thoughts, and tales about the woman who raised her and is the reason she considers valium one of the four basic food groups.From the Hardcover edition.

The Resurrection of Joan Ashby, By Cherise Wolas, Read by Gabra Zackman and Michael Dickes

‘A stunning debut – because there is nothing debut about it’ A.M. Homes Aged 13, Joan Ashby drew up a list of How to Become a Successful Writer: 1. Do not waste time 2. Ignore Eleanor Ashby* when she tells me I need friends [*J.A.’s mother] 3. Read great literature every day 4. Write every day 5. Rewrite every day 6. Avoid crushes and love 7. Do not entertain any offer of marriage 8. Never ever have children 9. Never allow anyone to get in my way A decade later her short stories take the literary world by storm. But her failure to fulfil numbers 6 and 7 gets in the way, closely followed by number 8 (twice); some years down the road, she finds herself living a life very different from the one she had envisioned. She finally gets back on track with numbers 4 and 5 and her much-anticipated first novel is finally written – and it's a masterpiece, she just knows it. But as she is poised to reclaim the spotlight, a betrayal of Shakespearean proportions is lurking around the corner… An audacious and dazzling novel, epic in scope but intimate in its portrayal of one woman’s triumphs and catastrophes.

17. THE BOOK OF JOAN by Lidia Yuknavitch

THE BOOK OF JOAN by Lidia Yuknavitch

Performed by Xe Sands The best-selling author of The Small Backs of Children offers a vision of our near extinction and a heroine - a reimagined Joan of Arc - poised to save a world ravaged by war, violence, and greed and forever change history in this provocative new novel. In the near future, world wars have transformed the earth into a battleground. Fleeing the unending violence and the planet's now-radioactive surface, humans have regrouped on a mysterious platform known as CIEL, hovering over their erstwhile home. The changed world has turned evolution on its head: The surviving humans have become sexless, hairless, pale-white creatures floating in isolation, inscribing stories upon their skin. Out of the ranks of the endless wars rises Jean de Men, a charismatic and bloodthirsty cult leader who turns CIEL into a quasicorporate police state. A group of rebels unite to dismantle his iron rule - galvanized by the heroic song of Joan, a child warrior who possesses a mysterious force that lives within her and communes with the earth. When de Men and his armies turn Joan into a martyr, the consequences are astonishing. And no one - not the rebels, Jean de Men, or even Joan herself - can foresee the way her story and unique gift will forge the destiny of an entire world for generations. A riveting tale of destruction and love found in the direst of places - even at the extreme end of posthuman experience - Lidia Yuknavitch's The Book of Joan raises questions about what it means to be human, the fluidity of sex and gender, and the role of art as a means for survival.

18. Blue Nights, By Joan Didion, Read by Kimberly Farr

Blue Nights, By Joan Didion, Read by Kimberly Farr

From one of America’s greatest and most iconic writers: an honest and courageous portrait of age and motherhood. Several days before Christmas 2003, Joan Didion’s only daughter, Quintana, fell seriously ill. In 2010, Didion marked the sixth anniversary of her daughter’s death. ‘Blue Nights’ is a shatteringly honest examination of Joan Didion’s life as a mother, a woman and a writer. Recently widowed, and becoming increasingly frail, ‘Blue Nights’ is Didion’s attempt to understand our deepest fears, our inadequate adjustments to ageing and to put a name to what we refuse to see and as a consequence fail to face up to, ‘this refusal even to engage in such contemplation, this failure to confront the certainties of ageing, illness and death. This fear.’ This fear is tied to what we cherish most and fight to conserve, protect, and refuse to let go, for, ‘when we are talking about mortality we are talking about our children.’ To face death is to let go of memory, to be bereft once more, ‘I know what it is I am now experiencing. I know what the frailty is, I know what the fear is.’ The fear is not for what is lost. The fear is for what is still to be lost. You may see nothing still to be lost. Yet there is no day in her life on which I do not see her. A profound, poetic and powerful book about motherhood and the fierce way in which we continue to exalt and nurture our children, even if they only live on in memory. ‘Blue Nights’ is an intensely personal, and yet, strangely universal account of how we love. It is both groundbreaking and a culmination of a stunning career.
