The Secret Life of Houdini
with William Kalush

"Kalush and Sloman appear to have raked through every known Houdini archive to produce the most comprehensive and controversial biography ever written about the man, with its contention that he was a spy who may have been murdered by a cult."
–Tony Barrell, London Sunday Times

Scar Tissue
with Anthony Kiedis

Scar Tissue is Anthony Kiedis’s searingly honest memoir of a life spent in the fast lane. In 1983, four self-described "knuckleheads" burst out of the mosh-pitted mosaic of the neo-punk rock scene in L.A. with their own unique brand of cosmic hardcore mayhem funk. Over twenty years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all odds, have become one of the most successful bands in the world. Though the band has gone through many incarnations, Anthony Kiedis, the group’s lyricist and dynamic lead singer, has been there for the whole roller-coaster ride.

"Kiedis’s narrative of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ dues-paying years is vivid and inspiring."
Newsweek

On the Road with Bob Dylan
A mesmerizing description of Dylan’s legendary Rolling Thunder Revue tour.

"A fascinating, compelling, sometimes hilarious eyewitness account of an extraordinary tour from a writer who had unique access to Dylan and his entourage. One of the top ten books of the year."
