The #1 national bestseller and inside story of Steph Curry, the greatest shooter basketball has ever seen. Golden is the first book to provide an all-access look at Steph Curry and the team that has fueled Dub Nation—by longtime Warriors beat reporter and Bay Area News Group sports columnist Marcus Thompson, the go-to expert on all things Golden State. A lifelong Warriors fan turned insider Thompson is uniquely qualified to tell the definitive story of a singular talent, pulling back the curtain on the crazy work ethic and on-court intensity that make Curry great—and the emphasis on family and faith that keeps him grounded. Combining the competitive grit and fun-loving spirit of his mother with the mild demeanor, easy charm, and sharp shooting of his father, former NBA player Dell Curry, Steph Curry derives support and strength from his close-knit kin and his commitment to Christianity. This hard-working, wholesome image however is both a blessing and curse in a League of big personalities. Thompson unravels the complicated underpinnings of the Steph Curry hate with a nuanced analysis of how class and complexion come into play when a child with an NBA pedigree becomes the face of a sport traditionally honed on inner-city black top and dominated by the less privileged. With unprecedented access, Thompson draws from exclusive interviews with Steph Curry, his family, his teammates, Coach Steve Kerr, and the Warriors owners to bring readers inside the locker room and courtside with this remarkable athlete and man.

Award-winning visual artist Guadulesa describes the creative process of her Art & Science project Matrix 5, which was funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. In search of evidence to prove the power of sound over matter, she studied the five healing tones utilized by her Tsalagi (Cherokee) ancestors in their medicine practices. Guadulesa used the tones as an art medium to create a set of 30 mixed medium paintings and gained empirical knowledge of the tones' effects on the human body. Through the publication of her journal notes with 36 color images, she takes us on a hand-held journey through sound, meditation and art-making. The Boston native now resides in Los Angeles, California, and her works are included in collections throughout the United States, the Caribbean, Mexico, Israel and Spain. Prior to Matrix 5, while living in Boston, Massachusetts in 1989, Guadulesa embarked on a creative project, called Keys of Infinity. She coordinated with like-minded artists who helped to shape an interdisciplinary, improvisational group of musicians, visual artists, dancers and poets. Music had always played a central force in her creative environment, but Guadulesa states that the opportunity to collaborate with other artists and perform as a painter was very exciting. Over the years they performed in such venues as the Knitting Factory and No. Moore Blues Cafe in New York City, the Mobius Space for Experimental Art and several other locations in the Boston area. Performing allowed her to experience the synergy of artists working together in the moment. With Keys of Infinity, Guadulesa began to feel that the sound environment influenced the drying patterns of her paintings. In 1992, she was awarded the Individual Artist Grant for designing a project that combined elements of Art and Science. Guadulesa learned that all form resonates with sound. Ancient cultures lived with that knowledge and made it part of their ritual ceremony for healing and balanced living. The Tsalagi healer utilized a combination of tones which matched the needs of their patients. Five principle tones resonate with particular human organ systems. Medicine chants and instruments can be used to help patients achieve optimum vibrational balance, so that healing can take place. Matrix 5: Tones of Resonance shares details of Guadulesa's experiences and discoveries."

California artist E. Charlton Fortune (1885-1969) came of age in the early twentieth century during the advent of the New Woman, a time when women pushed the boundaries of what was expected of them and challenged the status quo. Fortune, unmarried and of independent spirit, often rode her bicycle carrying her painting supplies to paint in plein air. The resulting landscapes were not delicate, soft, or feminine but bold and vigorous and were often thought to have been painted by a man. Known as an Impressionist and even Post-Impressionist, Fortune frequently painted the Monterey Peninsula and the people who lived there. She also spent a good deal of time abroad, both as a child at her family's home in Scotland and while traveling in Europe as an artist and settling for extended periods in St. Ives, England, and Saint-Tropez, France. In 1931, Fortune announced that she was giving up landscape painting to devote herself entirely to ecclesiastical design. As a lifelong Roman Catholic and founder of the Monterey Guild, she directed the guild members' considerable skills to the creation of art and furnishings for Catholic churches. Following her exacting standards and her studious interpretation of liturgical correctness, their work transformed more than seventy churches.

Poetry. In his follow-up to the acclaimed THE TO SOUND (Verse Press/Wave Books 2004), Eric Baus's second full-length poetry book is a continuation of his experimentation with the elongated lyric prose form. "In TUNED DROVES, there's a figure who discovers 'human or animal bones in the REM movements of babies.' As if that isn't fabulous enough, there's writing that's both prehensile and irreversible: a dismantled mouth that's capable of both a 'normal hello' and the subtly grotesque 'language of flags.' In this way, Eric Baus writes at the dark edge of an imaginary nation, collapsing us, with each climbing page, into an oral, incendiary architecture. As a poet, then, he's the flame-thrower, he's the one who says: catch"--Bhanu Kapil.
