Morrissey is one of the most provocative, individual and controversial performers in popular music. From the formation of his Manchester band The Smiths in 1982, through to the imminent release of his 2008 solo album Years Of Refusal, his career has spanned 50 UK Top 40 singles and 20 UK Top 10 albums. Including previously unpublished encounters, Meetings with Morrissey gets behind the public image to tell Morrissey’s story in his own words and explore in fine detail the extraordinary subject matter of his songs. The book offers in-depth insight into the diverse artists Morrissey has celebrated, via lyrics or Smiths’ covers, including Patti Smith, Pat Phoenix, Billy Fury, Marc Bolan, James Dean and The New York Dolls. Above all, it focuses on Morrissey’s lifelong commitment to promoting the genius of Oscar Wilde. Len Brown, a former NME writer and television producer, has interviewed Morrissey more times than any journalist. He first saw The Smiths back in 1983 and became the first writer to interview the artist about the death of his band and the birth of his solo career in 1988.

Hollywood's favourite action hero After an exhilirating ten years, Jason Statham has finally confirmed his place in the Hollywood elite. And starring alongside his childhood heroes Stallone, Schwarznegger, Willis and Jet Li, it is hard to imagine him anywhere else. Born in south London, Jason Statham has always been an action-man. As a boy, Jason chose not to follow in the footsteps of his parents and instead cultivated his thirst for adrenaline in athletics and diving - a skill that took him to the World Championships in 1992. But it was on the athlectics track that he was first discovered by a modelling scout for Tommy Hilfiger and French Connection, which eventually led Jason to the then fledgling director Guy Ritchie. A string of Hollywood blockbusters - Lock Stock, Revolver, Snatch - followed. But perhaps his best known role came in 2002 when Jason was cast as Frank Martin in The Transporter. Statham's background in martial arts defies the norm of the action-hero as he performs his own scenes and stunts in some of Hollywood's most death-defying action scenes. A huge box office hit, The Transporter spawned two sequels and has earned the reputation of a cult classic. Len Brown's biography is an insightful, comprehensive and gripping account of Britain's all-action hero.

The story of Warhol’s greatest superstar The renowned photographer Francesco Scavullo has called Joe Dallesandro “one of the ten most photogenic men in the world.” Springing to fame at the beginning of the sexual revolution in films such as Flesh, Trash, and Heat, Dallesandro, with the help of his mentor, Paul Morrissey, and pop artist Andy Warhol, became a male sex symbol in the film world unlike any before him. His casual nakedness and characteristic cool in the Warhol Factory’s irreverent, now-classic films earned attention that crossed gender lines and liberated the male nude as an object of beauty in the cinema. In this biofilmography, an update and revision of Little Joe, Superstar, Michael Ferguson explores not only Dallesandro’s Warhol years, but his troubled childhood on the streets of New York, in juvenile detention, as physique model, and on the run. Ferguson examines all of Dallesandro’s films: the eight made with Warhol and Morrissey, including the X-rated Frankenstein and Dracula, the post-Factory career in both art-world and low-budget films abroad, and his works as character actor upon his return to America. Including new interviews with Dallesandro, photographs from the actor’s personal collection, and an extensive biographical section, Joe Dallesandro is the ultimate guide to an underground film icon who, according to Andy Warhol, “everyone was in love with.”
