JOHN WAYNE: A NOVEL, Barden, Dan
152 Barden, Dan JOHN WAYNE: A NOVEL
Anchor 1998 038548710X / 9780385487108 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. In this immensely captivating and imaginative novel, perfectly set at the i ntersection of fact and fiction, Dan Barden superimposes the story of John Wayne on the story of the Bardens, a family very much like his own. Frank B arden, Wayne's contractor, is an Irish Catholic from New York who has come to California in pursuit of the American dream for his wife, Lillian, and t heir three young children, Danny, Alice, and Chris. Wayne is someone the Ba rdens work with, drink with, and felt blessed to be around. In fictionalized episodes ranging from Wayne's first love at sixteen to his deathbed conversion to Catholicism, this novel offers a surprisingly intim ate vision of John Wayne. The Bardens are the perfect observers, guileless enough to retain an unabashed admiration for a man they consider a hero, pe rceptive enough to begin to see him as he really is--a man struggling to co me to terms with the myths that define him. In their own way, the Bardens are coming to terms with these same myths. Frank Barden, trapped by alcoholism and the masculine ideal embodied by his friend Wayne, begins to lose touch with his family. Lillian Barden, disappointed by the impossible promise of the men around her, questions her faith in the manhood that men like Frank have to offer. As John Wayne lies on his deathbed at the close of this heartbreaking story, the Barden children have grown up, and Lillian and Frank are facing the dissolution of their marriage. With wit, intelligence and sympathy, Dan Bard.

160 Barone, Tracy HAPPY FAMILY
Little, Brown and Company 2016 0316342602 / 9780316342605 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
Happy Family by Tracy Barone One of these things is not like the other. That's how Cheri Matzner felt gr owing up in her adoptive family, and it's what continues to define her as s he tries to start a family of her own. Funny and fierce, desperate for conn ection yet pushing it away with both hands, she needs to jump-start a marri age in danger of flatlining and save her career from scandal. But Cheri is still contending with a complicated relationship with her parents-her aging Italian bombshell of a mother and a distant father who looms large, even i n death-unaware of the sacrifices they made to be together or of the diffic ult truths and lies in their marriage. When tragedy unravels Cheri's well-d esigned defenses, she is thrust into an odyssey of acceptance that brings h er full circle back to her dramatic origins. Sometimes it takes half a lifetime to come of age. To be able to glimpse our parents beyond their roles as our parents. To uncover the many versions of truth within our family stories and within our own. And to laugh at it all just a little bit sooner.
