Not Dead Yet is Phil Collins’ candid, witty, unvarnished story of the songs and shows, the hits and pans, his marriages and divorces, the ascents to the top of the charts and into the tabloid headlines. As one of only three musicians to sell over 100 million records both in a group and as a solo artist, Collins breathes rare air, but he has never lost his talent for crafting songs that touch listeners around the globe. This is the story of his epic career, from child actor to one of the most successful songwriters of the pop music era. A drummer since almost before he could walk, Collins received on-the-job training in the seedy, thrilling bars and clubs of 1960s swinging London before finally landing the drum seat in Genesis. Later he would step into the spotlight on vocals after the departure of Peter Gabriel, and compose the songs that would rocket him to international solo fame with the release of Face Value and ‘In the Air Tonight’. Whether he’s recalling jamming with Eric Clapton and Robert Plant, pulling together a big band fronted by Tony Bennett, playing twice at Live Aid, or writing the Oscar-winning music for Disney’s smash-hit animated film Tarzan, Collins keeps it intimate and his storytelling gift never wavers.

Phil Collins pulls no punches—about himself, his life, or the ecstasy and heartbreak that’s inspired his music. In his much-awaited memoir, Not Dead Yet, he tells the story of his epic career, with an auspicious debut at age 11 in a crowd shot from the Beatles’ legendary film A Hard Day’s Night. A drummer since almost before he could walk, Collins received on the job training in the seedy, thrilling bars and clubs of 1960s swinging London before finally landing the drum seat in Genesis. Soon, he would step into the spotlight on vocals after the departure of Peter Gabriel and begin to stockpile the songs that would rocket him to international fame with the release of Face Value and “In the Air Tonight.” Whether he’s recalling jamming with Eric Clapton and Robert Plant, pulling together a big band fronted by Tony Bennett, or writing the music for Disney’s smash-hit animated Tarzan, Collins’s storytelling chops never waver. And of course he answers the pressing question on everyone’s mind: just what does “Sussudio” mean? Not Dead Yet is Phil Collins’s candid, witty, unvarnished story of the songs and shows, the hits and pans, his marriages and divorces, the ascents to the top of the charts and into the tabloid headlines. As one of only three musicians to sell 100 million records both in a group and as a solo artist, Collins breathes rare air, but has never lost his touch at crafting songs from the heart that touch listeners around the globe. That same touch is on magnificent display here, especially as he unfolds his harrowing descent into darkness after his “official” retirement in 2007, and the profound, enduring love that helped save him. This is Phil Collins as you’ve always known him, but also as you’ve never heard him before.

Dying isn’t what it used to be. Wes Cooper was dead. Then he wasn’t—though he’s not exactly alive, either. As an immortal not-ghost, he can transition between this world and the otherplane, which makes him the perfect thief for hire. For seventy years he’s made a “living” returning items to their rightful owners, seeing his fair share of the bizarre in the process. But he’s never witnessed murder. Until now. His latest mission brings him more than he bargained for: a very-dead actor who is definitely going to stay that way. It’s just Wes’s luck that his ex-boyfriend, Detective Hudson Rojas, is assigned to the case. Hudson broke Wes’s heart years ago—and could again, given he’s rocking a hot silver-fox look that shouldn’t be legal. As they work together to track down the murderer before anyone else gets hurt, it becomes clear Wes and Hudson have unfinished business. And when a secret Hudson’s been keeping threatens more than just their happiness, it might mean the end of their not-life together—permanently. This book is approximately 91,000 words

Part memoir, part sports adventure, Not Dead Yet tells the inspirational story of Phil Southerland's battle with Type 1 diabetes and how from diagnosis to sheer determination, Phil Southerland beat all odds and turned his diagnosis and his passion for cycling into a platform. From leading a Race Across America to now managing a world-class cycling program, his journey on and off the bike is changing the way the world views diabetes. When Phil Southerland was seven-months-old, he lost ten pounds in a week, his body was limp and his breathing slowed to what his mother called a "death rattle." Rushing him to the ER, she was informed that tiny Phil displayed the youngest case of diabetes on record in the world at that time. Blindness, kidney failure and death were all predicted for him by age twenty-five. Twenty-nine years later, not only is Phil alive and well but as the founder of Team Type 1, he and his team of championship cyclists — many of them diabetics—have become health and fitness role models for people the world over. Together, they have taken on some of the most challenging endurance events in the world, including winning the Race Across America—a grueling 3,000-mile endurance competition—twice. Today, Phil continues to lead Team Type 1 as its professional cycling team, among one of the top 30 teams in the world, races toward an invite to the world's top cycling event, the Tour de France in 2012. Leading the pack is a serious challenge for any athlete, but for Phil and his teammates, it presents two daily battles: one to stay in razor-sharp race-fit condition, the other, to stay alive. Not Dead Yet is Phil's powerful story: his account of his relationship with his mother, and how she struggled to keep him alive; growing up quickly in the New-Old South of the 1990s, learning at the tender age of 6 years old how to check his glucose and give himself injections; of how he fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional athlete using his team and the bike as a platform, inspiring thousands of individuals and families around the world who are battling diabetes to not just chase, but catch, their dreams.

Labor is not dead yet, but it desperately needs to change. In this book, Mark Latham and several leading young progressive thinkers look to the future. Not Dead Yet shows how Labor became a party of factional warlords. Latham proposes reforms to limit their power and renew the party, and outlines a new way forward – a “light-touch social democracy” which focuses on equality, social mobility, good services and some key policy challenges: education, poverty and climate change. He also examines the rise of the authoritarian right under the wing of Tony Abbott, and what to do about it. Following this, an array of younger voices have their say. The result is a passionate debate about how the party can reinvent itself and speak to a changed Australia. After years of leadership turmoil and the 2013 election defeat, the Labor Party has some serious soul-searching to do. This book is the place to start.

From a revered writer of the Beat Generation: a “tour de force” that contemplates aging—and how to make the most of it (Booklist). In this energetic, optimistic memoir, Herb Gold looks back on his life, not with regret or wistful recollections—but as a constant, ongoing journey. In a fascinating account of his life, he shares poignant and funny memories of the countless conversations, anecdotes, and atmospheres he has experienced and witnessed, all recollected in his vivid, striking prose. This is a book about how time overtakes us; how reminiscence, loss, hope, pain, success, failure—the lifelong accumulation of dreams and reality—continue to crowd around us with every passing day. In this age of overheated memoirs that exist merely to shock readers with supposedly stunning revelations, Not Dead Yet stands out with its rare, unique remembrances of a life truly lived by a man who saw every day as a rare opportunity he just couldn’t pass up. “Veteran writer Gold now confronts aging with warmth, humor, and a trace of angst. . . . Breezily charming, Gold captivates.” —Booklist “Altogether exhilarating.” —Los Angeles Times

Three years ago, when I put a collection of newspaper articles I had written into a book called 87 and Still Wandering About, the thought that I would add a sequel when I hit 90 never entered my mind. But longevity, vanity, and the compulsion to scribble have won out. These pieces, most of which appeared in the Los Angeles Times online or its baby, La Canada's Vally Sun, were meant to be read separately, like morsels, with time in between to turn to other things. I hope that in bringing them together like this, they do not seem to you to be too repetitive, dated, or indigestible. In fact, I’m even hoping you’ll enjoy a few of them.
