Uniek talent lost zijn verwachtingen in. Onder invloed van de nieuwe drug glow ziet Raf de romantiek van het lelijke Zuid-Londen. Rafs dagen tellen 25 in plaats van 24 uur waardoor hij nooit helemaal in sync is met de wereld. Nu hoopt hij dat glow deze stoornis kan reguleren; maar het blijkt knap lastig eraan te komen. Terwijl Raf driftig op zoek is, verdwijnt zijn beste vriend Theo. Door de speurtocht naar Theo en naar glow belandt Raf in een grootse samenzwering waarbij een illegaal radiostation, Birmese immigranten en een corrupte mijnexploitant betrokken zijn. Raf is zijn leven niet zeker en de effecten van zijn acties blijken veel verder te reiken dan zijn opeens zo veilige Zuid-Londense uitgaanswereldje. Is de openingspagina van Beaumans nieuwe roman wat overweldigend, al snel sleept hij je mee in een wurgend spannende thriller.

South London, May 2010: foxes are behaving strangely, Burmese immigrants are going missing, and everyone is trying to get hold of a new party drug called Glow. A young man suffering from a rare sleep disorder will uncover the connections between all these anomalies in this taut, riveting new novel by a young writer hailed by The Guardian as “playful, arresting, unnerving, opulent, rude and—above all—deliciously, startlingly, exuberantly fresh.” Twenty-two-year-old Raf spends his days walking Rose, a bull terrier who guards the transmitters for a pirate radio station, and his nights at raves in warehouses and launderettes. When his friend Theo vanishes without a trace, Raf’s efforts to find him will lead straight into the heart of a global corporate conspiracy. Meanwhile, he’s falling in love with a beautiful young woman he met at one of those raves, but he’ll soon discover that there is far more to Cherish than meets the eye. Combining the pace, drama, and explosive plot twists of a thriller with his trademark intellectual, linguistic, and comedic pyrotechnics, Glow is Ned Beauman’s most compelling, virtuosic, and compulsively readable novel yet. From the Hardcover edition.

"Best known for his song "Super Freak," hitmaker, singer, innovator, producer, award-winning pioneer in the fusion of funk groove and rock, the late Rick James collaborated with music biographer David Ritz in this posthumously published, wildly entertaining, and profound expression of a rock star's life and soul. He was the nephew of Temptations singer Melvin Franklin; a boy who watched and listened, mesmerized from underneath cocktail tables at the shows of Etta James and Miles Davis. He was a vagrant hippie who wandered to Toronto, where he ended up playing with Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, and he became a household name in the 1980s with his hit song "Super Freak." Later in life, he was a bad boy who got caught up in drug smuggling and ended up in prison. But since his passing in August 2004, Rick James has remained a legendary icon whose name is nearly synonymous with funk music--and who popularized the genre, creating a lasting influence on pop artists from Prince to Jay-Z to Snoop Dogg, among countless others. In Glow, Rick James and acclaimed music biographer David Ritz collaborated to write a no-holds-barred memoir about the boy and the man who became a music superstar in America's disco age. It tells of James's upbringing and how his mother introduced him to musical geniuses of the time. And it reveals details on many universally revered artists, from Marvin Gaye and Prince to Nash, Teena Marie, and Berry Gordy. James himself said, "My journey has taken me through hell and back. It's all in my music--the parties, the pain, the oversized ego, the insane obsessions." But despite his bad boy behavior, James was a tremendous talent and a unique, unforgettable human being. His "glow" was an overriding quality that one of his mentors saw in him--and one that will stay with this legendary figure who left an indelible mark on American popular music"--"Hitmaker, singer, innovator, producer, award-winning pioneer in the fusion of funk groove and rock, the late Rick James collaborated with go-to music biographer David Ritz, in this wildly entertaining and profound expression of a rock star's life and soul"--
In the autumn of 1941, Amelia J. McGee, a young woman of Cherokee and Scotch-Irish descent, and an outspoken pamphleteer for the NAACP, hastily sends her daughter, Ella, alone on a bus home to Georgia in the middle of the night—a desperate measure that proves calamitous when the child encounters two drifters and is left for dead on the side of the road. Ella awakens in the homestead of Willie Mae Cotton, a wise root doctor and former slave, and her partner, Mary-Mary Freeborn, tucked deep in the Takatoka Forest. As Ella heals, the secrets of her lineage are revealed. Shot through with Cherokee lore and hoodoo conjuring, Glow transports us from Washington, D.C., on the brink of World War II to the Blue Ridge frontier of 1836, from the parlors of antebellum manses to the plantation kitchens where girls are raised by women who stand in as mothers. As the land with all its promise and turmoil passes from one generation to the next, Ella's ancestral home turns from safe haven to mayhem and back again. Jessica Maria Tuccelli reveals deep insight into individual acts that can transform a community, and the ties that bind people together across immeasurable hardships and distances. Illuminating the tragedy of human frailty, the vitality of friendship and hope, and the fiercest of all bonds—mother love—the voices of Glow transcend their history with grace and splendor.

For every new project or high-profile assignment, there is a mile-long line of wannabes waiting to grab the brass ring. But those consistently at the forefront have something truly extraordinary in common. You know them at first sight: teammates or colleagues, direct reports or bosses who radiate enthusiasm, positive energy, and inspiration. Even when confronted with circumstances that work against them they, Glow with an attitude that inspires others, fosters a great working experience for themselves and everyone around them, and creates empowering relationships. And Lynda Gratton can make sure you’re one of them. In her book Hot Spots, Gratton explored how pockets of energy and innovation are created in organizations. Now she zeroes in on how you can become a source of energy and innovation yourself. Drawing on years of original research, Gratton identifies three principles that people who Glow live by: they cultivate a cooperative mind-set, they are adept at reaching across traditional boundaries—what Lynda calls “jumping across worlds”—to gain great new ideas and powerful insights, and they are able to ignite inspiration and energy in others. For each principle, Gratton outlines three actions anyone can take to put it into practice, illustrated with dozens of examples and personal stories. Easy-to-use tools enable you to evaluate where you are now and measure your progress. Success isn’t about just working harder—there’s always someone out there who will put in longer hours. But if you can learn to Glow, you will add tremendous value to your organization in a way that will make your work more satisfying and fulfilling.
