Kate Remembered, Berg, A. Scott
5 Berg, A. Scott Kate Remembered
Putnam Publishing Group 2003 0399151648 / 9780399151644 Hardcover VG+/VG+ 
Published a mere 13 days after the death of Katharine Hepburn, Kate Remembe red is best appreciated as a valentine of devoted friendship. It's a moving study of mutual trust and admiration between Pulitzer Prize-winning biogra pher A. Scott Berg and legendary Hollywood icon Hepburn, who'd established an instant rapport in 1983, beginning a 20-year conversation that blossomed into this enchanting "biographical memoir." As a casual but authoritative survey of Hepburn's career, Berg's book offers little new information to an yone who's read previous Hepburn biographies or Me: Stories of My Life, Hep burn's bestselling 1991 memoir. But the duality of Berg's title reinforces his purpose: "More than my remembrances," writes Berg in his author's note, "this book intends to convey hers." As such, Kate Remembered offers a rare , unvarnished portrait of one of the 20th century's most influential women, achieving a personal intimacy while making the reader feel welcomed in Hep burn's private world of privilege.

7 Bordman, Gerald The Oxford Companion to American Theatre
Oxford University Press 1984 0195034430 / 9780195034431 Hardcover Good/Good 
Like a well-crafted revival of a beloved play, this new edition of a favori te reference book retains the flavor of the original production while signi ficantly updating its content. The cast here is large and includes actors, choreographers, composers, dancers, designers, directors, lyricists, plays, playwrights, producers, theaters, and theater companies. The text covers the American stage from its inception to the present, and the alphabetically arranged entries range in length from a few lines to a quarter of a double-columned page. Among the articles new to this edition are AIDS and the American theatre, Asian-American theatre and drama, Feminist theatre, 42nd Street redevelopment, Performance art, and Road tours. The authors note that to retain all the historical information of previous editions, individual articles have been condensed rather than eliminated. There is more variety here than on a vaudeville bill: hair and hairspray; urinetown and Uncle Tom's Cabin; and Tony 'n Tina's Wedding and The Tale of the Allergist's Wife are among the plays represented. Articles on individual theater artists often mention a biography or autobiography, a welcome enhancement to a ready-reference source such as this. To present as complete a picture of American theater as possible, entries on theaters beyond the Great White Way, such as the Arena Stage, the Goodman Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse, American Conservatory Theatre, and the Steppenwolf Theatre Company, are included. Capsule histories of every Broadway theater as well as several Off-Broadway houses are another new and notable feature. The volume is recommended for all public

8 Brook, Peter The Shifting Point : Theatre, Film, Opera 1946-1987
Theatre Communications Group 1994 155936081X / 9781559360814 Paperback Very Good+ 
For the ordinary theatergoer, Shakespeare has become a bit of a bore, Brook maintains. Yet the Bard's "cubism of the theater," his curious splicing of verse and prose, ought to resonate with meaning for us today. Here the wel l-known director explains the rationale behind his controversial production s of King Lear and Romeo and Juliet. This tapestry of essays, notes and man ifestos includes a section on the international, multicultural theater grou p Brook organized in Paris to reinvent the sounds, gestures and scripts tha t he feels should animate true theater. He relives the group's three-month journey in Africa, which led to his mounting The Conference of the Birds. A nother play in which ceremony and performance fuse, Brook's re-creation of the Indian epic Mahabharata, is also discussed. Several pieces on opera exp lore ways to revive what he considers an artificial, stagnant form. With it s far-reaching perspective on avant-garde and classical theater, this journ al will reward even readers who are not familiar with the works discussed.

Wry Martinis, Buckley, Christopher
9 Buckley, Christopher Wry Martinis
Random House 1997 0679452338 / 9780679452331 Hardcover VG+/VG+ 
His famous father conducted a legendary literary feud with Gore Vidal, and while Christopher Buckley's dust-up via fax machine with novelist Tom Clanc y (who was outraged by Buckley's trashing of one of his novels in the New Y ork Times Book Review doesn't reach that intellectual level, it does make f or very funny reading and illustrates Buckley's gift for puncturing pomposi ty wherever he finds it. To his credit, most of the essays in this collecti on are quite witty, and he doesn't sink to mean- spirited ideological blath er. Included are pieces published in the New Yorker, Esquire, the Wall Stre et Journal, and other publications. Apart from the humorous essays, Buckley 's ruminations on why he didn't serve in Vietnam provide thought-provoking commentary on his generation's defining event.

15 Favreau, Jon Swingers: Screenplay (Faber Reel Classics S.)
Faber and Faber Ltd 2000 0571203108 / 9780571203109 Paperback Very Good 
Swingers is an affectionate, hilarious ode to the fine arts of friendship, bar-hopping and girl chasing. Told in the hip retro-vernacular of the 90s l ounge lizard, it's the tale of a "rat pack" of young, under-employed actors , hanging out together in Hollywood.

HQ for the guys' nocturnal manoeuvres is Sue's pad, where they debate the techniques of sed uction and fight over video ice-hockey. But can Mike ever overcome his low self-esteem, accept Trent's assurance that he's "a big winner" and so woo a nd win his true love? This volume also includes the Swingers Rules--a concise lesson in the do's and don'ts of modern dating, as explained by author and actor Jon Favreau ( Mike) and actor Vince Vaughn. One of a hand-picked selection of some of the most popular and cult-worthy titles on Faber and Faber's extensive list of film scripts.

16 Feldman, Michael Whad'Ya Knowledge?
William Morrow & Co 1993 0688107966 / 9780688107963 1st Edition Hardcover Very GoodVery Good 
More than 130 public radio stations carry Michael Feldman's hilarious comed y quiz show, which opens with the rallying cry "Whad'ya know?" The audience answers, "Not much!" And they mean it. To help rectify this woeful state, Feldman, whose humor is tart and clever, tricky and impertinent, has compil ed a thoroughly enjoyable volume of quirky facts to help his fans become, i f not genuinely knowledgeable, at least able to pass as pundits at parties. The book's categories are the same as the show's: people, places, things y ou should have learned in school (if you had been paying attention), scienc e, and odds and ends. For example: "Under legislation pending in Boise, not returning library books could get you: (a) six months in jail; (b) a year in jail; (c) fourteen years in jail. The answer: (c); and if you don't retu rn books to the prison library, they make you spend fourteen years in Boise ."

17 Fonda, Peter Don't Tell Dad: A Memoir
Hyperion Books 1999 0786884371 / 9780786884377 Paperback Very Good 
Lionized as the rebel loved by a generation in Easy Rider, Fonda morphed in to the antiestablishment figure Hollywood loved to hate, an anachronism imm ersed in hippie hedonism. He milks the "little boy in his father's shadow" motif but candidly explores his relationship with the irascible Henry, swee tly reflects on his childhood years, recalls (doomed) encounters with autho rity figures, and thoughtfully considers domestic bliss. His account of the years spent jet-setting, careering about Europe in fancy cars, and sailing on the Tatoosh with cast and crew for various film projects is most riveti ng. A central theme: did Fonda behave the way he did because of or despite his ancestry? Entertainment Weekly, Ken Tucker ...a strikingly frank, nuanced, often self-serving but revelatory movie-star autobiography.

19 Gallafent, Edward Clint Eastwood: Filmmaker and Star
Continuum Intl Pub Group 1994 0826406653 / 9780826406651 1st Edition Hardcover F/NF 
A wonderful tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscri ptions, unclipped dustjacket, this is not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. For nearly thirty years, Clint Eastwood has had an unchallenged position as one of Hollywood's biggest and most enduring stars. Always able, it seems, to work within the Hollywood system on his own terms, Eastwood has created a gallery of heroes, many clearly descended from his laconic Man With No Name for Sergio Leone, as well as more vulnerable characters such as the DJ in Play Misty For Me, or even the redneck of Every Which Way But Loose. However, in serious critical discussions of 'seventies and 'eighties cinema, Eastwood's work has mostly been relegated to the sidelines as being "simple" and/or politically reactionary popular entertainment. All this has changed since the rapturous critical reception of Unforgiven (1991), which won Eastwood a well-deserved Academy Award. This book presents Eastwood's work as a body of filmmaking with a crucial place in the mainstream American cinema of the past two decades. It deals with the films in which he starred for other directors, notably Dirty Harry and his other movies with Don Siegel, and films such as Bird of which he was director but not star, as well as his frequent work in both capacities.
