Prince

The Beautiful Ones

The Beautiful Ones

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The brilliant coming-of-age-and-into-superstardom story of one of the greatest artists of all time, in his own words—featuring never-before-seen photos, original scrapbooks and lyric sheets, and the exquisite memoir he began writing before his tragic death NAMED ONE OF THE BEST MUSIC BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND THE GUARDIAN • NOMINATED FOR THE NAACP IMAGE AWARD Prince was a musical genius, one of the most beloved, accomplished, and acclaimed musicians of our time. He was a startlingly original visionary with an imagination deep enough to whip up whole worlds, from the sexy, gritty funk paradise of “Uptown” to the mythical landscape of Purple Rain to the psychedelia of “Paisley Park.” But his most ambitious creative act was turning Prince Rogers Nelson, born in Minnesota, into Prince, one of the greatest pop stars of any era. The Beautiful Ones is the story of how Prince became Prince—a first-person account of a kid absorbing the world around him and then creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life, before the hits and fame that would come to define him. The book is told in four parts. The first is the memoir Prince was writing before his tragic death, pages that bring us into his childhood world through his own lyrical prose. The second part takes us through Prince’s early years as a musician, before his first album was released, via an evocative scrapbook of writing and photos. The third section shows us Prince’s evolution through candid images that go up to the cusp of his greatest achievement, which we see in the book’s fourth section: his original handwritten treatment for Purple Rain—the final stage in Prince’s self-creation, where he retells the autobiography of the first three parts as a heroic journey. The book is framed by editor Dan Piepenbring’s riveting and moving introduction about his profound collaboration with Prince in his final months—a time when Prince was thinking deeply about how to reveal more of himself and his ideas to the world, while retaining the mystery and mystique he’d so carefully cultivated—and annotations that provide context to the book’s images. This work is not just a tribute to an icon, but an original and energizing literary work in its own right, full of Prince’s ideas and vision, his voice and image—his undying gift to the world.

Prince

Prince

Pour Prince, musicien d'exception, il fallait un livre exceptionnel, comme celui de Jason Draper. Qui retrace en détail la carrière à la fois tonitruante, longue et sulfureuse du Kid de Minneapolis. Avec ses musts, 1999, Purple Rain ou Sign "O" The Times, et ses périodes d'éclipse. Qui le suive à travers ses outrances et ses métamorphoses, sa mégalomanie et sa folie, en un mot son génie. D'ailleurs, après s'être appelé Prince, alias Joey Coco, Jamie Starr ou Christopher, ne s'est-il pas rebaptisé Love Symbol, mutant issu de la fusion du masculin et du féminin, être tellement parfait qu'aucun nom existant, même le sien, ne saurait en rendre compte ? Puis The Artist, le plus noble titre qui puisse être décerné à un homme... Richement illustré, notamment avec des doubles pages qui se déplient comme des posters, exhaustif, admiratif et distancié, le livre du journaliste-écrivain londonien Jason Draper est une somme et un sommet, en parfaite harmonie avec son sujet : démesure et kitsch au rendez-vous. Voici donc un Prince grandeur nature (ou presque), somptueusement habillé de blue velvet, pour patienter jusqu'au prochain retour de l'artiste le plus imprévisible de tous les temps.

History Of Prince Edward Island

History Of Prince Edward Island

This island was one of Cabot's early discoveries in North America, and was called by him St. John, a name it carried through much of its history. However, it was claimed by France as part of the discoveries made by Verazani in 1523, and it remained under French control for much of its early history. In 1713, when Acadia and Newfoundland were ceded to England, the French inhabitants were given liberty to leave, and many went to St. John. Again, when the Acadians were driven from Nova Scotia in 1755, many removed to St. John. In 1763, St. John was ceded to the British, who then developed some grand plans for the settlement of the island by their own people. Subsequently it was settled by Loyalists fleeing from the American colonies, and by many Scotch highlanders. The latter are readily apparent from the names of the heads of households in the 1798 census of the island which is included as an appendix to this history. The author also wrote a history of Nova Scotia. A new full-name index has been added.
