Tommy Mays, Titan Records’ biggest act, is verging on a mid-life crisis; learning the hard way that a life of fame and fortune comes at a price. But things are looking up for his support band, Burn, which could be a career-changer for Theo, Titan’s young A&R executive. Meanwhile, secretary Cynthia has her eyes on Titan’s latest rising star, singer-songwriter Lenore Lamont. But with a billboard in Times Square, is Lenore starting to feel the pressure? Set in the sleek offices, high-tech recording studios and hip downtown clubs of New York, ‘The Words of Every Song’ depicts the realities of making it in an industry where glamour and fame can often conceal the harsh realities for those hoping to hit the big-time.

Every day we think about love, and every day love eludes us. Maybe you’re hoping to begin a new relationship, or in a secret place in your heart, gathering the courage to leave one. Maybe you’re in a long-term partnership, wondering how to sustain love through life’s many storms. Maybe you’re a parent and you want to be a better one; or you’ve lost a parent, and that loss suddenly dwarves everything else. After years of interviewing people about their relationships, Natasha Lunn learnt that these daily questions about love are often rooted in three bigger ones: How do we find love? How do we sustain it? And how do we survive when we lose it? Interviewing authors and experts as well as drawing on her own experience, Natasha Lunn guides us through the complexities of these three questions. The result is a book to learn from, to lose and find yourself in.
