The complete uncensored history of the award-winning The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, as told by its correspondents, writers, and host. For almost 17 years, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart brilliantly redefined the borders between television comedy, political satire, and opinionated news coverage. It launched the careers of some of today´s most significant comedians, highlighted the hypocrisies of the powerful, and garnered 23 Emmys.

A Blue Notes Novel World-renowned conductor David Somers never wanted the investment firm he inherited from his domineering grandfather. He only wanted to be a composer. But no matter how he struggles, David can´t translate the music in his head into notes on paper. When a guest violinist at the Chicago Symphony falls ill, David meets Alex Bishop, a last-minute substitute. Alex´s fame and outrageous tattoos fail to move David. Then Alex puts bow to string, and David hears the brilliance of Alex´s soul. David has sworn off relationships, believing he will eventually drive away those he loves, or that he´ll lose them as he lost his wife and parents. But Alex is outgoing, relaxed; and congenial-everything David is not - and soon makes dents in the armor around David´s heart. David begins to dream of Alex, wonderful dreams full of music. Becoming a composer suddenly feels attainable. David´s fragile ego, worn away by years of his grandfather´s disdain, makes losing control difficult. When David´s structured world comes crashing down, his fledgling relationship with Alex is the first casualty. Still, David hears Alex´s music, haunting and beautiful. David wants to love Alex, but first he must find the strength to acknowledge himself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter B. Brooke.
