The Days of Guns, & Raz's

by Raz Cue

In the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and eighty-five, a little ol’ band called Guns N’ Roses formed in Raz Cue’s living room. And thus, Cue became the band’s first manager... to be fired. With absolutely no hard feelings, Mr. Cue remained a trusted member of G N’ R’s inner circle for the remainder of the decade, allowing him to witness the iconic band tour the world’s stages as they rose to the pinnacle of rock ‘n’ roll. When the Guns N’ Roses party quit being fun for him, Cue stepped away from the swelling ranks of backstage hangers-on so that he might fully enjoy the band’s incendiary performances from a fan-in-the-audience perspective.With good times and fun stories constantly swirling about in his mind’s eye, a few years back, Mr. Cue resolved to set the st...

Asphalt Asylum: The Dark Roads to Light

by Steve Theme

Experience the charity, horrors, and wonders of hitchhiking seven thousand miles alone. As nineteen-year-old Steve Theme leaves on a hitchhiking trek, he has no destination, no timeframe, and no self-respect. A home life of abuse and addiction didn’t prevent him from being selected Scholar/Athlete of the Year as a senior in high school, but hiding one life from the other has broken him into fragments. He leaves Seattle in 1978 as a know-it-all whose hobbies are shoplifting malt liquor and despising his university classmates, and himself.

This remarkable memoir traverses a journey of doubt and growth against a backdrop of constant vulnerability and danger. Theme is a captive witness to dozens of people’s stories until, finally, he’s able to tell his own. Asphalt Asylum ca...

Reign of the Vampire: A Tribute to the Perseverance of Bela Lugosi

by Leo Wiltshire

When he died he feared he had been forgotten...
…He was dead wrong!

Bela Lugosi is considered one of the greatest actors of the twentieth-century... but you'd never know it based upon the way he was treated by the Hollywood executives he worked for. Shut out, ignored, and hideously underpaid, he could have easily given up, walked away from show business, and no one would have blamed him for doing so. But he didn't. Now a body of his work exists that is celebrated decades after his death... because he worked hard and never gave up. Bela Lugosi persevered in the face of tremendous adversity. Can Bela's story inspire you to keep going in your quest to make the world a better place?

Three Great Impresarios: Emperors of Song

Great impresarios are an extinct breed.Grand Opera today is presented either by the state or by major corporate trusts. Yet, in the Golden Age of Verdi and Puccini, Wagner and Richard Strauss, opera in Britain and the United States was almost exclusively the preserve of individual private businessmen — the impresarios — who made (and lost) fortunes by personallv employing the great stars of the day.The king of bombast was Colonel James Mapleson, child-star, wiliest of agents, then grandest and finally most unlucky of showmen. Obsession ruined Oscar Hammerstein I. not once, not twice but three times bankrupted by his determination to conquer Broadway. Great wealth protected John Christie, soldier, schoolmaster and heir to Glyndebourne Manor and estates, when his love for his wife led to...

The Other Side of the Moon: The Life of David Niven

by Sheridan Morley

‘A highly readable work … Niven emerges as gallant and gracious.’ Chicago TribuneSheridan Morley wrote this biography of the consummate on-screen English gentleman after speaking to over 150 of Niven’s friends and colleagues (only Rex Harrison refused). The result is a picture which both supports and contradicts the charming vagabond persona depicted in Niven’s own bestselling memoirs.While millions throughout his life were enchanted by Niven’s happy-go-lucky charisma and world-class anecdotage, he was in many respects a private figure, haunted by a fear of failure, and a victim of several key tragedies in his personal life. Morley’s biography is a warm, appreciative but perceptive account which captures both sides of one of Hollywood’s most enduringly lovable figures.‘A ...

Daughter of Earth and Water: A Biography of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

by Noel Gerson

Mary Wollstonecraft was fifteen when, in 1813, she met the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

A disciple of Mary’s famous father, the philosopher William Godwin (her mother was the great feminist Mary Wollstonecraft), Shelley himself was only twenty, though he was married and soon to be a father.

Mary and Shelley fell in love the next summer; and several months later they ran away together.

Thus began one of the most tragic, poignant, and, in all respects, brilliant relationships between a woman and a man that has ever been recorded.

Shelley went on writing the poetry that was to make him one of the immortals.

And Mary, as the result of a contest to see who could produce the best tale of the supernatural, wrote the classic Fran...

The completed portrait is that of genius, its varied interests, its abounding energy, and its achievements.“As The Man Charles Dickens leaves my typewriter for the second time,” says the author, “it says what I now wish to say about its subject as well as I am able to say it … Nor can I say good-bye to Dickens a second time without recording my present judgment t...

Collected Works of Honore de Balzac with the Complete Human Comedy

by de Balzac, Honore

The Human Comedy (French: La Comédie Humaine) is the title of Honoré de Balzac's multi-volume collection of interlinked novels and stories depicting French society in the period of the Restoration (1815-1830) and the July Monarchy (1830–1848).The Comédie humaine consists of 91 finished works (stories, novels or analytical essays) and 46 unfinished works (some of which exist only as titles). It does not include Balzac's five theatrical plays or his collection of humorous tales, the "Contes drolatiques" (1832–37). The title of the series is usually considered an allusion to Dante's Divine Comedy; while Ferdinand Brunetière, the famous French literary critic, suggests that it may stem from poems by Alfred de Musset or Alfred de Vigny. While Balzac sought the comprehensive scope of Dan...

Transfigured World: Walter Pater's Aesthetic Historicism

by Carolyn Williams

Exploring the intricacy and complexity of Walter Pater’s prose, Transfigured World challenges traditional approaches to Pater and shows precise ways in which the form of his prose expresses its content. Carolyn Williams asserts that Pater’s aestheticism and his historicism should be understood as dialectically interrelated critical strategies, inextricable from each other in practice. Williams discusses the explicit and embedded narratives that play a crucial role in Pater’s aesthetic criticism and examines the figures that compose these narratives, including rhetorical tropes, structures of argument such as genealogy, and historical or fictional personae....

The Girl From Missouri

by John C. Spahn

For eighty-five years actress Jean Harlow has been portrayed on screen and off as the legendary, one dimensional, charming, dumb blonde tramp of the 1930s. This is how she is remembered.
Miss Harlow did not outlive her reputation, but she did repudiate the bad publicity that inspired it before her sudden and unexpected death at age twenty-six.
The Girl From Missouri is a work of creative nonfiction. The book is the only story about the actress written in the first person. It is an autobiographical account of her life until three weeks before her death.
It is the narrative life story of a girl who really wanted to be a writer not a movie star; and it is a story about Missouri values, and how those values instilled in her at a young age by her parents and grandparents, par...

Odd Man Out: James Mason – A Biography

by Sheridan Morley

‘Incredibly good-looking, in a dark way … that curious quality of a man with an eternal secret. … That was what was so arresting. … That and the voice.’ Geraldine FitzgeraldThe reason for watching a James Mason film, as the film critic Pauline Kael once noted, was usually only James Mason himself.Mason was actually pointed toward a career in architecture before acting overtook him during his third year at Cambridge. He went on to make an indelible impression playing emotionally haunted characters on stage and screen, such as one early stand-out role, Johnny McQueen in Carol Reed’s Odd Man Out (1947).Mason and his first wife, Pamela, arrived in the United States in the late forties, and the Hollywood phase of his career lasted through the 1950s.

Nabokov: The Mystery of Literary Structures

by Leona Toker

Vladimir Nabokov described the literature course he taught at Cornell as "a kind of detective investigation of the mystery of literary structures." Leona Toker here pursues a similar investigation of the enigmatic structures of Nabokov's own fiction. According to Toker, most previous critics stressed either Nabokov’s concern with form or the humanistic side of his works, but rarely if ever the two together. In sensitive and revealing readings of ten novels, Toker demonstrates that the need to reconcile the human element with aesthetic or metaphysical pursuits is a constant theme of Nabokov’s and that the tension between technique and content is itself a key to his fiction. Written with verve and precision, Toker’s book begins with Pnin and follows the circular pattern that is one of ...
