Between January and July 1919, after “the war to end all wars,” men and women from around the world converged on Paris to shape the peace. Center stage, for the first time in history, was an American president, Woodrow Wilson, who with his Fourteen Points seemed to promise to so many people the fulfillment of their dreams. Stern, intransigent, impatient when it came to security concerns and wildly idealistic in his dream of a League of Nations that would resolve all future conflict peacefully, Wilson is only one of the larger-than-life characters who fill the pages of this extraordinary book. David Lloyd George, the gregarious and wily British prime minister, brought Winston Churchill and John Maynard Keynes. Lawrence of Arabia joined the Arab delegation. Ho Chi Minh, a kitchen assistant at the Ritz, submitted a petition for an independent Vietnam.

In the late '30s and early '40s, pianist Teddy Wilson was a big deal in the land of jazz. He had many opportunities to perform as a sideman, and eventually got his breaks. These sessions showcase of variety of his efforts with big bands, large ensembles, small groups, and a singer named Billie Holiday. Though none of his own compositions are credited ("Big Apple" should be,) he certainly had a hand in the arrangements, and was given space to play quite a bit of piano. The Hep label has generously provided 23 selections with Wilson and bandmates including stalwarts Hot Lips Page, Lester Young, Freddie Green, Red Norvo and Pee Wee Russell, as well as backing trombonist Benny Morton's All Stars. There are two takes of "Ain't Misbehavin'," "Just a Mood" (Blue Mood,) "When You're Smiling," and "I Can't Believe That You're in Love with Me" for contrast sake. The sound reproduction of these vintage performances is excellent, and this one can easily be recommended to both fan and novice.

It was much to soul singer Spanky Wilson's surprise – she didn't realize she had had such an impact – when British multi-instrumentalist/producer Will Holland contacted her in her Los Angeles home in 2004, professing his love of her music and wondering if she'd collaborate with him. Still, she agreed to go the studio, and together they did two songs, "Don't Joke with a Hungry Man" and "When You're Through," for Holland's solo project, Quantic, on the album Mishaps Happening. That collaboration worked out so well that they decided to make an entire record together, this time with Holland's full band, the Quantic Soul Orchestra. Wilson's lovely voice is the centerpiece of I'm Thankful, and it does show a bit of its age, but only in the best of ways, deepening it and giving it an added measure of credibility and authenticity while still preserving its expressiveness and strength. Attesting to Wilson's tremendous ability is the fact that the record is very intimately and sparsely produced, making it seem as if the singer is almost in the room right with the you, the sometimes raspy and breathy line endings audible in that professional, practiced way.

Antenora, la nonna che Margaret Mazantini evoca in questo romanzo, s'impone come un piccolo eroe di un mondo arcaico. Confinata tra le pareti domestiche, esercita con energia un matriarcato casalingo e indiscusso, nel quale si impongono valori netti e semplici, sentimenti forti ed esclusivi, che la rendono capace di affrontare esperienze decisive (la guerra, il fascismo, il dopoguerra) senza mai perdersi d'animo. Di fronte alla sua morte, in un gelido mattino d'inverno, la nipote si interroga e disegna il ritratto di una donna che è riuscita a essere se stessa nonostante l'ostilità del mondo e della storia.

"Pensava soltanto a quello. Riportare la sua vita a quel punto. Nel punto dove si era interrotta. Si trattava di unire due lembi di terra, due lembi di tempo. In mezzo c'era il mare. Si metteva i fichi aperti sugli occhi per ricordarsi quel sapore di dolce e di grumi. Vedeva rosso attraverso quei semi. Cercava il cuore del suo mondo lasciato". Farid e Jamila fuggono da una guerra che corre più veloce di loro. Angelina insegna a Vito che ogni patria può essere terra di tempesta, lei che è stata araba fino a undici anni. Sono due figli, due madri, due mondi…
