I just finished reading your book and I´m just blown away! I mean, I know I was there during a lot of this time, and I even interviewed for the book, but I´m still amazed at how much I didn´t know about what went on those first five years. I had no idea how close ´Friends In Low Places´ came to not happening! You basically gave away ´The Thunder Rolls´ and ´What She´s Doing Now´? You found ´The Dance´ and then decided not to record it? (I´m not sure I´d tell people that, haha!) I had heard the crazy story of how ´Papa Loved Mama´ was written and recorded all in the same session, but I never believed it was true ... ´til now. You know that´s one of my all-time favorite Garth songs! I cried when I heard Tony Arata´s first-ever recording of ´The Dance.´ Walking the reader through how the songwriting and recording process really happens with the example of the original lyrics and recording of ´That Summer´ ... brilliant. And I vividly remember you playing me a song called ´Miss Rodeo´ that eventually became ´Rodeo.´ You pitched that song to me, didn´t you? :) And you know some of my favorite Garth songs are ones that you never even recorded, and they´re all here! Pretty cool. You asked me to read this book and tell you what I thought. As your wife, best friend, and as a fellow artist, I´m just so proud of you! I love that you tell the story from your own perspective, and you also get the viewpoint of the songwriters, the players who played on every song, and the producer and engineer who recorded and mixed the first five records and lived through it all with you. I love the pictures I had never seen before from inside the studio where you guys practically lived together for those first years. Like I said, I was there, (there is some big 90´s hair in the photos to prove it!). And still, I am so impressed by all the detail this book goes into. I´m proud of you, husband, and I am proud to be a part of the Garth Brooks phenomenon and The First Five Years. Oh, and you get more handsome with each year that passes. True story. I love you.

Rupert Chawner Brooke was born at 5 Hillmorton Road, Rugby, Warwickshire, on 3rd August 1887, the third of four children.Brooke attended preparatory school nearby at Hillbrow and then went on to Rugby School. In 1905, he became friends with St. John Lucas, who thereafter became something of a mentor to him. While travelling in Europe he worked on a thesis, ´John Webster and the Elizabethan Drama´, which won him a scholarship to King´s College, Cambridge. Once there Brooke became a member of the Apostles, was elected as President of the Fabian Society and helped found the Marlowe Society drama club. The friendships he made during his education were an essential part of his future years, and many fell under the magic that he seemed to weave.In 1907, his eldest brother, Dick, died of pneumonia at age 26. Brooke at once wanted to stop studying to help his devastated parents cope with this tragedy, but they insisted he return to school. Amongst the Bloomsbury group of writers and artists he blossomed. Many admired his talents, but others were rather keener on his good looks. Brooke was also part of the Georgian poets and one of the most important of the Dymock poets, from the Gloucestershire village of Dymock, where he spent time before the war.In 1912 Brooke suffered a severe emotional crisis caused by his bisexuality and jealousy. This caused his long-term relationship with Katherine ‘Ka’ Laird Cox to break down, and the result of that was nervous collapse and trips to Germany for rehabilitation. Whilst in Berlin and feeling dreadfully homesick he penned his classic ´The Old Vicarage, Grantchester´. As part of his recuperation, Brooke toured the United States and Canada to write travel diaries for the Westminster Gazette. Travelling back to England, he wrote much fine verse on the journey sailing across the Pacific and during his stay of some months in the South Seas.In August 1914 war broke out in Europe, and Brooke enlisted. 1.

A look back at the cultural and political force of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gwendolyn Brooks, in celebration of her 100th birthday Artist - Rebel - Pioneer Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gwendolyn Brooks is one of the great American literary icons of the 20th century, a protégé of Langston Hughes and mentor to a generation of poets, including Sonia Sanchez, Nikki Giovanni, and Elizabeth Alexander. Her poetry took inspiration from the complex portraits of black American life she observed growing up on Chicago´s South Side - a world of kitchenette apartments and vibrant streets. From the desk in her bedroom, as a child she filled countless notebooks with poetry, encouraged by the likes of Hughes and affirmed by Richard Wright, who called her work ´´raw and real´´. Over the next 60 years, Brooks´ poetry served as witness to the stark realities of urban life: the evils of lynching, the murders of Emmett Till and Malcolm X, the revolutionary effects of the civil rights movement, and the burgeoning power of the Black Arts Movement. Critical acclaim and the distinction in 1950 as the first black person ever awarded a Pulitzer Prize helped solidify Brooks as a unique and powerful voice. Now, in A Surprised Queenhood in the New Black Sun, fellow Chicagoan and award-winning writer Angela Jackson delves deep into the rich fabric of Brooks´ work and world. Granted unprecedented access to Brooks´ family, personal papers, and writing community, Jackson traces the literary arc of this artist´s long career and gives context for the world in which Brooks wrote and published her work. It is a powerfully intimate look at a once-in-a-lifetime talent up close, using 43 of Brooks´ most soul-stirring poems as a guide. From trying to fit in at school (´´Forgive and Forget´´) to loving her physical self (´´To Those of My Sisters Who Kept Their Naturals´´) to marriage and motherhood (´´Maud Martha´´) to young men on her bloc 1.
