Stories, Songs, Words, Letters, Ideas… Books that I happened to have on my shelf when we turned on the camera. Much more to come…
I mentioned these on the DRAFTSMEN podcast.
Big influence on me around 1978. Read it in the library over many weeks.
Religious or not, you gotta love these for their wit. To get a taste, start with the chapter in “Orthodoxy” called “The Paradoxes of Christianity.”
In the late 70’s, when I was in my twenties, I read every word of this and pondered it. Glad now.
I haven’t read this one yet. I will, because he always engages me.
Ali Almossawi, Alejandro Giraldo
Entertaining. A gift to me from dear friends to share laughs and in the hope of being better in how we converse.
Many, many classics to come. These were on my shelf.
For years, I bought every Sherlock Holmes book that came out. I haven’t read them all but… seeking an excuse to put them to use with a class of mutual enthusiasts.
The Twilight Zone
I am not a songwriter except in the very worst sense of the word, but I love songwriters and I love to learn about their craft. Like cartoons, songs as little packages of creativity.
Al Kasha, Joel Hirschhorn
The first book I read on Songwriting, and it opened up a world of interest in the craft.
Sheila’s years of experience training songwriters, boiled down into a book.
This is the workbook to accompany the previous book.
Full of opinions and insights, true to the by-line.
The by-line tells all, as mentioned above. Much more than the collected lyrics!
This is both of the two previous songwriting books in one box. I want to spend a year in these books with students studying composition of songs, or of anything. Great collection.
