When Your Song Breaks the Silence

By Natalie Jacobs

Rating: ★★★★☆ 

Though he died in his early thirties, Austrian composer Franz Schubert managed to leave behind a large body of work. That someone working nearly two hundred years ago could create music that is still popular today is, if nothing else, a testament to the staying power of one man’s creative ability.

By Kevin Cohen

Rating: ★★★☆☆

North of Sunset

By Henry Baum

Rating: ★★★☆☆ 

A noir-ish story about two seemingly different characters who are both cold, self-centered, seek fame and—who are in many ways—the same.
