The heart of the world by Nik Cohn( Book )

"The history of Broadway has been written before, but never better...The verbal energy that pours off these pages is enough to transform the hell of...Times Square into a rough-hewn heaven, neon lit and open all night...The only thing wrong with this book is it isn't longer." 'NEWSWEEK Nik Cohn ushers readers along the street he calls "The Heart of the World." producing a book that is a resplendent pageant of New York's high-and low-life. Among the characters we meet are a golden-tongued cab driver who calls himself a "collector of farces"; a pickpocket with the terrifying gift of impersonating his marks; a heartbreakingly beautiful Dominican tranvestite named Lush Life; strippers; pseudo-prophets; and a disgraced political veteran of the days when the graft was still honest. Conducted by a writer with the manic energy of a sideshow barker and the full-blooded lyricism of a raucous poet, this is a bebop odyssey along the Great White Way that reaches in implication far beyond the streets of New York to document the ever-evolving mixtures that make up America itself. "A lovely, bracing book, full to bursting with juicy, tasty, rancid life. While making its bawdy way through crowded spaces ... it also travels through modern times ... wondrous." 'USA TODAY

Awopbopaloobop alopbamboom : the golden age of rock by Nik Cohn( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and French and held by 197 libraries worldwide
"At the age of eleven, Nik Cohn heard a record whose lyrics changed his life. Little Richard screamed: "Tutti frutti all rootie, tutti frutti all rootie, tutti frutti all rootie, awopbopaloobop alopbamboom!" For Cohn, this seemed a magical code - the language of the future." "Awopbopaloobop Alopbamboom was the first book to celebrate that language, the primal essence of rock 'n' roll. But it was much more than that. Written in 1968 and revised in 1972, it was a cogent yet unruly history of the era, from Bill Haley to Jimi Hendrix. And while telling outrageous tales, vividly describing the music, and cutting through the hype, Nik Cohn unknowingly engendered a new form: rock criticism." "But Awopbopaloobop has been unavailable in this country for over two decades, and, while rock criticism has turned into a veritable industry, its progenitor lurked only in used bookstores and private bookshelves. Now, with a new preface by the author, this classic is once more available - as riotous a spree as any in rock writing."--Jacket
