Ignored by virtually everyone upon its release in November 1968, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society is now seen as one of the best British albums ever recorded. Here, Andy Miller traces the perilous circumstances surrounding its creation, and celebrates the timeless, perfectly crafted songs pieced together by a band who were on the verge of disintegration and who refused to follow fashion.Andy Miller is a writer living in London. His first book, Tilting at Windmills, was published in the UK by Viking in 2002.33 1/3 is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. Focusing on one album rather than an artist's entire output, the books dispense with the standard biographical background that fans know already, and cut to the heart of the music on each album. The authors provide fresh, original perspectives - often through their access to and relationships with the key figures involved in the recording of these albums. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. (A task which can be, as Elvis Costello famously observed, as tricky as dancing about architecture.) What binds this series together, and what brings it to life, is that all of the authors - musicians, scholars, and writers - are deeply in love with the album they have chosen. 1. Language: English.

Turnabout is fair play. Tavi Mirza has been operating under that principle for a few months now, but both he and his brother Rex are keenly aware they can’t avoid the consequences of their actions forever. Sooner or later, the facade will crumble, and when someone ultimately finds out their secret, Tavi’s life will be over. The fates have converged to ensure that the twins don’t remain untouched by its claws, and they must determine where their true loves and loyalties lay. Can Tavi and Rex protect each other? Or will they allow the past to dictate the future instead of moving forward together?Please note: This is not a stand-alone and should be listened to after Want, the first book in The Need Trilogy, and Take, the second in the series. This dark taboo tale contains several kinks that may offend or trigger some listeners, including (but not limited to) age play, ABDL, spanking, and humiliation. Not every dynamic or element is 100 percent consensual. Though The Need Trilogy is set in The Fate of the Fallen world, the trilogy can be listened to separately from the series and other books. The main characters do not (yet) appear in the other series, and there are minimal spoilers for the series or other books set in the universe. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kenneth Obi.
