With the musings and manifesto of a frankly average Sunningdale golfer, Richard Russell confirms that true motivation comes from visualizing not the arc of the next wedge shot, but the prospect of the refreshment kiosk and its illicitly rich snacks next to the 9th hole.

Golf had never made sense to Tony Lawrence. It didn’t make sense to his wife or their six-year-old daughter either – not that they’d ever been foolish enough to try and play it.Then, fast approaching his 50th birthday, he found himself laid low with Post-Viral Fatigue, made redundant, newly cast as a house husband and - the final straw -humiliated over 18 holes by his 13-year-old nephew.So he set himself an ultimatum: 12 months to discover the secret of golf or give up for good. This is the story of the year that followed; of how one of life’s Mr Averages, a stone or two overweight, committed to crisps, chocolate biscuits and the odd glass of wine as part of a balanced diet and, like most bad golfers, believing in fairies and the power of miracles, pursues his chosen Holy Grail – to play a couple of rounds in single figures and, in glorious culmination, to beat his three brothers for the very first time, not to mention that diabolic nephew with the glinting teeth braces. If only finishing the ironing, baking an edible broccoli soufflé for dinner and understanding the workings of his daughter’s mind were as easy. His quest takes him further afield than he could ever have anticipated. How can it possibly be so difficult to fix a golf swing? (Soon he is two-timing his swing teacher). Do club manufacturers sell us sets of clubs to improve our game or just to bolster their profits? How on earth did that session of hypnotherapy in a deep squishy armchair lead immediately to the best round of his life? And why is it that his young daughter confuses ‘Brazil’ with ‘Walnut’ in her geography homework?He learns booming drives from one of England’s long-driving champions, receives a trenchant talking-to from ex-British Open champion Vivien Saunders and stands on thermographic ‘force plates’ to have all 28 parameters of his putting stroke dissected by computer. His marriage survives, despite the holes he gouges in the lounge carpet.The result is a funny, frank and touching testimony of one man’s attempts to master an art, and as near as any sane person has come to the secret of the elusive, maddening, impossible game of golf. But, as we leave him at the moment of truth, standing over a five-foot putt for that final climactic match, muttering, ‘Hole this and I’ll carry on playing, miss it and I give up…,’ you don’t have to be interested in golf to find Hacked Off an intriguing exploration of the place of sport in life, and of how our drives sometime land in areas quite different from where we’d been aiming. His daughter, incidentally, came up with the rather good subtitle.

A group of three friends who made music in a house in Lubbock, Texas, recorded an album that wasn't released and went their separate ways into solo careers. That group became a legend and then—twenty years later—a band. The Flatlanders—Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Butch Hancock—are icons in American music, with songs blending country, folk, and rock that have influenced a long list of performers, including Robert Earl Keen, the Cowboy Junkies, Ryan Bingham, Terry Allen, John Hiatt, Hayes Carll, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, and Lyle Lovett. In The Flatlanders: Now It's Now Again, Austin author and music journalist John T. Davis traces the band's musical journey from the house on 14th Street in Lubbock to their 2013 sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall. He explores why music was, and is, so important in Lubbock and how earlier West Texas musicians such as Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, as well as a touring Elvis Presley, inspired the young Ely, Gilmore, and Hancock. Davis vividly recreates the Lubbock countercultural scene that brought the Flatlanders together and recounts their first year (1972–1973) as a band, during which they recorded the songs that, decades later, were released as the albums More a Legend Than a Band and The Odessa Tapes. He follows the three musicians through their solo careers and into their first decade as a (re)united band, in which they cowrote songs for the first time on the albums Now Again and Hills and Valleys and recovered their extraordinary original demo tape, lost for forty years. Many roads later, the Flatlanders are finally both a legend and a band.

Everything about Angela “Big Ang” Raiola is larger than life: her lips, her 36JJ breasts, and especially her personality! In a lifestyle guide as genuine and fun as Big Ang herself, the star of VH1’s Mob Wives, called the show’s “den mother” by the New York Times, serves up the hilarious and poignant wisdom she’s learned while running her bar, raising her family, and dating made men. Big Ang has rules to live by for beauty, food, family, friendship, and more. Here she is... ON HER KILLER BOOBS: I was on vacation with my family in the Catskills when out of nowhere, this bat flies right into my chest and then falls splat on the ground. Turned out, he died on impact. ON FAMILY TRADITIONS: Every Sunday, we do a feast for fifteen to twenty-five people. Last week, we went through seventy-five meatballs. Even by my family’s standards, that’s a lot of balls. ON DIETING: Swearing off lasagna to lose weight? You might fit into smaller jeans. But you’re still the same person— except hungrier and bitchier. ON HOBBIES: Would I rather cook for people or have sex? No hard-and-fast rule there. But I will say this: Cooking is always satisfying.
