Since signing for Celtic in the summer of 1999 for u2 million, Stiliyan Petrov has established himself as one of the best footballers in Europe. He is now the Glasgow giant's longest-serving player and one of the fans' favourites. Petrov is also a superstar in his homeland, where he is captain of the national team and regarded as Bulgaria's finest player since Hristo Stoichkov. Now, in YOU CAN CALL ME STAN, one of Celtic's most gifted players tells his life story so far. In his own words, Petrov revels his spartan upbringing in Bulgaria, retreads his first steps in domestic football and details the dramatic events that brought him to Celtic. The man his friends call Stan takes us inside the dressing-room of the Hoops and tells us what he really thinks of the managers he has worked under at Parkhead, including John Barnes, Gordon Strachan and Martin O'Neill. Petrov reveals why he once almost walked out on Celtic and reflects upon the night he broke his leg in 2001 - an incident which he feared would prematurely end his career. Instead, inspired by Celtic legend Henrik Larsson, he fought back to establish himself as one of Europe's finest talents.

“[An] eight-track flashback of a novel set in 1970s Detroit” from the international bestselling author of The Narcissism of Small Differences (O, the Oprah Magazine, Summer 2018 Reading List). Set in early 1970s Detroit, a divided city still reeling from its violent race riot of 1967, Beautiful Music is the story of one young man’s transformation through music. Danny Yzemski is a husky, pop radio–loving loner balancing a dysfunctional homelife with the sudden harsh realities of freshman year at a high school marked by racial turbulence. But after tragedy strikes the family, Danny’s mother becomes increasingly erratic and angry about the seismic cultural shifts unfolding in her city and the world. As she tries to hold it together with the help of Librium, highballs, and breakfast cereal, Danny finds his own reason to carry on: rock and roll. In particular, the drum and guitar-heavy songs of local legends like the MC5 and Iggy Pop. In the vein of Nick Hornby and Tobias Wolff, yet with a style very much Zadoorian’s own, Beautiful Music is a touching story about the power of music and its ability to save one’s soul. “A sweet and endearing coming-of-age tale measured in album tracks.” —The Wall Street Journal “For Danny, cracking the seal on a fresh piece of wax and dissecting cover art and liner notes are acts of nigh religious experience that unveil to him a community of fellow rockers across Detroit . . . It’s in these small moments—a lonely boy experiencing premature nostalgia—that Zadoorian shines.” —The Washington Post “A disturbing yet humorous tale of beleaguered adolescence in 1970s Motor City.” —Steve Miller, author of Detroit Rock City
