´A blisteringly imaginative crime novelist...violent, amoral, terse and fast-moving...a classic American novelist´ Kirkus Reviews Bill Collins is young, good looking, agile and strong, but he´s a drifter with mild multiple neuroses, in and out of institutions, and dangerously violent on occasion. When he gets involved with the hard-drinking Fay Anderson and the deceptively pleasant ex-police officer everyone knows as Uncle Bud in a ruthless kidnap plot, everything goes to hell in a hurry, and the end, for Bill, is inevitable and shattering. This is a tour de force of paranoia and violence from the master of the crime noir novel.

Sweet and Lowdown, Woody Allen´s film from 1999, starred Sean Penn as the legendary, but fictitious jazz guitarist of the ´30s, Emmett Ray. Emmett considered himself to be the second greatest jazz guitarist in the world next to Django Reinhardt. The versatile Howard Alden played all of the solo acoustic guitar parts for the movie, as well as coaching Mr. Penn to play guitar for his role (for which he received an Oscar nomination, best actor). This book contains note-for-note transcriptions in both standard notation and tab of Howard´s Django-esque interpretations and improvisations of classic standards of the 1930s, as well as original solo guitar pieces written by Woody´s longtime musical director, jazz pianist Dick Hyman. Sweet and Lowdown contributed greatly to the recent renewal of interest in and revival of swing and gypsy jazz guitar. Howard´s guitar work is a warm and personal example of the timeless musical vocabulary of swing guitar.
