Mass Market Paperback. 0449212378 From School Library Journal YA The 1930s was a turbulent time for America: the Great Depression, left-wing politics and the growing concern over the rise of Hitler in Europe. As seen through the eyes of nine-year-old Edgar Altshuler, these events provide a backdrop for the more intimate story of his own family and how they coped while living in the Bronx. They serve a symbolic purpose as well as a historical one. On his first visit to the fair, Edgar is enthralled by industry's vision of the futuresafe, secure and prosperous cities, speedy and cheap transportation and modern invention to make life easier. On his second visit, he sees that the exhibits are constructed of gypsum whose paint is peeling and that the displays are really toys. Reality has altered Edgar's perceptionshe is growing up. Edgar's chapters are randomly interspersed with his mother Rose's recollections and a few by his older brother Donald to give a seemingly simplistic view of life that is actually a rich narrative of history, political and personal values and points for discussion. A remarkable book for perceptive readers. Diana Hirsch, PGCMLS, Md. Copyright 1986 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From AudioFile Flat and un-emotive are not words associated with E.L. Doctorow. Unfortunately, they are the prime descriptors of this rendition of Doctorow's recollection of a 1930s' New York boyhood. Lavelle has a well-modulated voice tinged with a minor key, which might work well for this New York story. Yet his slow, even reading is devoid of emotion. For all the interest he shows in the text, he might be clearly enunciating the telephone directory. A.C.S. ? AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright ?

Paperback. 0345413865 Kellerman isn't just an Edgar Award-winning thriller writer, he's a prominent child psychologist, and it shows in Billy Straight. The hero is a 12-year-old runaway whose sharp mind and straitlaced moral sense make him fit to survive the lurid jungles of Hollywood. One night hiding in Griffith Park, Billy witnesses the butchering of Lisa Ramsey, the cokehead ex-wife of Cart Ramsey, a crummy actor-golfer once busted for pummeling Lisa. Did Cart knife Lisa, or was it his pathetic old football sidekick Greg Balch? When O.J. was on trial, Kellerman said, "This wouldn't make a good novel," but some of Kellerman's toughest critics say this funhouse-mirror version of an O.J.-like case is his best, better than his famous Alex Delaware series. Psychologist Dr. Delaware has a bit part here, but the heroine is Detective Petra Connor, his distaff equivalent. Kellerman's main strength is his vivid invention of secondary characters and his skill at juggling subplots. When Petra's media-whore boss puts Billy's police sketch in the paper with a $25,000 reward, two marvelously sub-simian bounty hunters join the chase: a vicious Russian ex-cop and the vile biker boyfriend of Billy's stoned-out, trailer-park mom. Like the kid hero of Russell Banks's Rule of the Bone, Billy enriches his author's customary milieu by viewing it from a new, low angle. The tale is more taut than Kellerman's 1997 bestseller Survival of the Fittest and more riveting than the O.J. case--the cops are smart and justice has a prayer. --Tim Appelo --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Publishers Weekly Although this is only the second of Kellerman's 14 novels not to feature psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware (the first was Butcher's Theater, 1988), it has all the author's familiar strengths: a broad cast of well-defined characters, a fast-moving plot and themes sponged from the daily news yet turned fresh. (And Delaware makes a brief appearance at the end.) Twelve-year-old Billy Straight, a precocious homeless kid with a taste for reading, flees Los Angeles in terror after witnessing a murder in Griffith Park. The homicide inquiry is headed by Petra Connor, a determined, intuitive detective, and her partner, Stu Bishop, who is distracted by a family tragedy. The murder victim turns out to be Lisa Ramsey, ex-wife of the famous, and abusive, Cart Ramsey, who plays a private eye on a late-night television series. Kellerman does a fine job revealing how memories of the Simpson case shadow the Ramsey investigation, affecting the ways Petra and Stu are allowed to go about their work. The search for Billy by the cops and several villains forces a comparison with John Grisham's The Client, but Kellerman's novel is far more complex, switching points of view among a multitude of characters and amid a series of distinctive subplots. By the dramatic climax, Kellerman has pushed a number of familiar buttons?but with enough panache and surprises to satisfy his most demanding fans.

Fine. 1999., Ballantine Books, 1999, Tor Books. Mass Market Paperback. 0812540247 From Publishers Weekly Interleaved with accounts of the pi?a colada sunsets from the jet-set journalist-turned-novelist narrator's present-day life, this nostalgic novel recalls the summer of 1957, when the young Ray "Skeeter" Hawkins fell in love with the woman who haunts him still. When Angie Boudreau gets off the Spokane Greyhound at the Umatilla, Ore., drugstore where Skeeter works, the 16-year-old kidAgiven his nickname because, until his recent growth spurt, he'd been "no bigger than a mosquito"Ais immediately smitten by the ear-pierced, almond-eyed stranger who's reading Camus. He soon has a rival for Angie's attentions, howeverAthe school's star halfback, Billy Karady. So insular is Umatilla that, even when Karady attempts to rape Angie, and a number of other rapes occur nearby, his status as an athlete and minion of the larger-than-life Coach Mungo protects him. Angie and Ray begin going steady, and the self-obsessed, troubled Karady stalks the naive lovers. After Karady becomes more threatening, shooting at them and attempting to run them off the road, the sweethearts, influenced by the tenets of existentialism they have read about, take matters into their own hands. The plot then becomes dubious, with absurd crimes, cover-ups and disappearances. To Van Pelt's credit, he captures the feel of adolescence in the 1950s, but the narrative suffers after Angie moves away and the narrator discusses his adult life in slightly offensive terms. His wife, "the Filipina," reminds him of Angie physically, and is a real catch because she's "good-looking, uncomplicated, and caring." It is not until he's in New Orleans for an American Booksellers Association conventionAhe's been publishing novels under the pseudonym Nicholas van Pelt, and, like Thomas Pynchon, has never allowed a photo of himself to be publishedAthat Ray Hawkins discovers what really happened to Billy Karady. The self-referentiality of this novel destroys the suspense and makes it almost farcical. Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Kirkus Reviews A 1950s fictional memoir of teenage sex, existential small-town blues, and a nasty bully who doesn't know when to quit. After his wacky, Pynchonesque thriller debut, Mongoose Man (1998), van Pelt veers into twisted nostalgia with a squeamishly adolescent, rites-of-passage sex-capade set in a tiny, dusty Oregon farm town. Its 1957 and pruriently prodigal 16-year-old Ray ``Skeeter'' Hawkins, earning spare change as a drugstore janitor, gets a wink from slim, sexy Angie Boudreau as she steps off the bus. Angie, whose American Indian ancestry gives her exotic features, has come to the forlorn hamlet of Umatilla to stay with relatives and finish out her high school years. She sees something in Raythe son of a crippled, former bootlegger with a struggling farmthat no one else does, least of all the testosterone-charged bully and high-school football hero Billy Karady, who thinks every pretty girl is his to conquer. Angie and Ray quickly become a couple, passionately discussing Camus's The Stranger while indulging in R-rated groping in the front seat of Ray's battered car, only to be stalked and threatened by Karady, who, Angie soon reveals, almost raped her when Ray wasn't around. Karady's envy leads to increasingly violent encounters with Ray, whose puny stature and intellectualized cowardice prevent him from trouncing Karady. When Ray and Angie hear of a series of rape-murders on the outskirts of town, their attempt to stick Karady with the crime goes awry. Forty years later, Ray, now a globe-trotting journalist-turned-novelist writing under the name van Pelt, expects Karady to jump out and challenge him in every locale he inhabits. The eventual confrontation is a letdown, as it inevitably must be, and afterward Hawkins/van Pelt reveals that Stomp! is less nostalgic idyll than postmodern critique of existentialism.

Lucille Ball is truly a television pioneer and comedian who never cracked a smile, even while her audiences howled with laughter. This was the essence of her comedy, but what those audiences didn't know was that her deadpan delivery reflected her personality in real life. She was an unlikely candidate to become the country's most famous comedienne. She was a dreamy-eyed and easily frightened child. Her father died of typhoid fever whn she was three years old, and she later became the victim of her stepfather's parents, who would literally chain her to a leash in the backyard. Fantasies of a glamorous life in show business were her escape. Fiercely determined to become an actdress, Lucy finaly achieved her goal when a job at a modeling agency led to a small part in a Broadway play, and then to a Hollywood contract. Although she played opposite such stars as Bob Hope and William Holden, her film career was less than distinguished, and Lucy did not find true stardom until she was cast as a zany housewife in the radio series My Favorite Husband. In an unprecedented move, she and her bridegroom, Desi Arnaz, put togdether a television pilot virtually on their own, and invented the modern situation comedy and the most popular show in television history. Even today I Love Lucy is syndicated all over the world, and new audiences are discovering the charm of Lucy's slapstick antics. In this startling and revealing biography, literary detective Charles Higham uncovers Lucille Ball's life through I Love Lucy and beyond. Higham candidly treats her stormy relationship with Desi, her investigation by the Un-American Activities Committee, her overzealous perfectionism both on the set and off. The author shows the complex character of Lucille ball in a new light. Here is a Lucy leading a life that, unlike her many television shows, has moments of despair as well as laughter. .
