Lillian Roxon from the Author: Robert Milliken. Audacious, independent, and fiercely intelligent, Lillian Roxon cut her teeth as a reporter in the lively world of 1950s tabloid journalism. Her rapid success soon saw her interviewing stars like Rock Hudson and Richard Burton. She moved to New York City in the 1960s, just in time for a cultural revolution that celebrated youth, sexual freedom, women's liberation—and, of course, rock 'n' roll. In New York, Lillian was the universally acknowledged queen of Max's Kansas City, one of the greatest nightspots ever. It was the club where Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, and other stars in waiting came to hang out. Linda McCartney confided in Lillian about her first date with Paul; Germaine Greer knocked on her door for a place to stay. The 1969 publication of Lillian's Rock Encyclopedia—excerpted in this volume—confirmed her status. It was the first book of its kind and established her as one of America's leading chroniclers of rock culture. Here was the "queen of Max's Kansas City" who ruled the world of rock—the only critic to give Lester Bangs a run for his money.

Mother Of Rock from the Author: Robert Milliken. She was the unchallenged queen of the New York rock scene...Dorothy Parker of Max's Kansas City' - Rolling Stone From the pubs of the Sydney Push to New York's legendary nightclubs, Lillian Roxon set the pace for an era that changed the world. Born in Mussolini's Italy, she arrived as a child in Brisbane at the height of the Second World War. Audacious, independent and fiercely intelligent, by eighteen she was cutting her writing teeth in the colourful world of Sydney tabloid journalism and was a key member of the Sydney Push. She moved to New York in 1960, just in time for a cultural revolution that celebrated youth, sexual freedom, women's liberation - and rock and roll. Embracing the new scene with gusto, she became the centre of a circle that included Andy Warhol, Lou Reed, Jim Morrison and David Bowie. Linda Eastman confided in her about her first date with Paul, and Germaine Greer dedicated The Female Eunuch to her. Her Rock Encycylopedia, published in 1969, was the first book of its kind and established Roxon as a leading critic and chronicler of rock culture. When she died suddenly in 1973, she left behind a body of work full of the energy, irreverence and idealism of her times. Drawing on Roxon's personal papers and extensive interviews with those who knew her, Mother of Rock is a riveting portrait of an Australian trailblazer. It also contains a generous selection of Roxon's own writing, including material from her Rock Encyclopedia, which revolutionised the way rock music was perceived.

An Uncommon History Of Common Things from the Author: Patrick Bethanne. Sometime about 30,000 years ago, somebody stuck a sharp rock into a split stick, and presto! The axe was born. Our inquisitive species just loves tinkering, testing, and pushing the limits, and this delightfully different book is a freewheeling reference to hundreds of customs, notions, and inventions that reflect human ingenuity throughout history. From hand tools to holidays to weapons to washing machines, An Uncommon History of Common Things features hundreds of colourful illustrations, timelines, sidebars, and more as it explores just about every subject under the sun. Who knew that indoor plumbing has been around for 4,600 years, but punctuation, capital letters, and the handy spaces between written words only date back to the Dark Ages? Or that ancient soldiers baked a kind of pizza on their shields - when they weren't busy flying kites to frighten their foes? A lively, incomparably browsable read for history buffs, pop culture lovers, and anyone who relishes the odd and extraordinary details hidden in the everyday, it will inform, amuse, astonish, and alter the way you think about the clever creatures we call humans.
