Mary Astor's purple diary : the great American sex scandal of 1936 by Edward Sorel( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1936 newspapers were ablaze with a scandalous child custody trial taking place in Hollywood and starring the actress Mary Astor; the story pushed Hitler and Franco off the front pages. George S. Kaufman, then the most successful playwright on Broadway and a married man to boot, had been Astor's lover. The scandal revolved around Marys diary, which her ex-husband, Dr. Franklyn Thorpe, had found when they were still together. Mary, he claimed, had not only kept a tally of all her extramarital affairs but graded them-- and he already alerted the press in order to obtain a divorce and get custody of their daughter. Sorel provides all the juicy details of this particular slice of Hollywood Babylon, including Mary's life as a child star, and her teenage love affair with the much older John Barrymore

The complete fables of La Fontaine : a new translation in verse by Jean de La Fontaine( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this contemporary translation, Craig Hill has captured the liveliness, satiric wit, and poetic beauty that made Jean de La Fontaine famous during his lifetime and his Fables celebrated as a masterwork of world literature ever since." "Despite La Fontaine's deceptively modest claim that all he intended was to put the moral tales of Aesop and other ancient fabulists into poetry for the pleasure of Louis XIV's young son, his real accomplishment, as later generations have understood, was holding a mirror up to the society of his day and in the process fashioning a work that has become a classic." "Borrowing from a variety of sources, La Fontaine gave the hitherto mute animals in ancient fables the power of speech. Putting his characters on stage and endowing them with irresistibly witty dialogue, he portrayed with great humor the flaws and pretensions that still dog us. Backstabbing politicians, brainless nincompoops, charlatans, clueless heads of state, egomaniacs, empty-headed celebrities, foolish investors, gluttons, liars, penny pinchers, self-important blowhards, and wastrels - the targets of the poet's pen were legion and remain so today." "Craig Hill has given us a rare treat: both the irreverent spirit and the vivid poetry that have made La Fontaine's fables beloved through the ages, continuing to amuse and inspire centuries after they first appeared in print. Making this volume even more of a delight are a dozen scintillating illustrations by Edward Sorel."--Jacket

The mural at the Waverly Inn : a portrait of Greenwich Village bohemians by Edward Sorel( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Waverly Inn has been a landmark in New York's Greenwich Village since the 1920's. But since 2006, when Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter bought and refurbished the restaurant, it has also been one of the most sought after destinations in the city. And while we can't guarantee you a reservation there, we can bring you the wonderful, witty mural by Edward Sorel that graces its walls. Sorel--whose caricatures and drawings regularly appear in The New Yorker and on its cover--chose forty Greenwich Village greats from the past 150 years to cavort in bacchanalian splendor. Each of the 40 makes a solo appearance in these pages alongside a charming, telling vignette of his or her life by Dorothy Gallagher, then appears in a foldout of the entire mural at the back of the book. Here you will find Walt Whitman being attacked by a ferocious Truman Capote butterfly; Jane Jacobs, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and Willa Cather playing ring-around the rosy; those famous denizens of the White Horse Tavern, Dylan Thomas--who breakfasted on beer and lunched on brandy--and Jack Kerouac, typing his long roll of a novel. Anais Nin appears nude, which, Gallagher points out, was her usual state. Norman Mailer admires himself in a reflecting pond. Here, too, are Djuna Barnes and Edna St. Vincent Millay, Jackson Pollack and James Baldwin, Thelonius Monk, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez, Andy Warhol and Fran Lebowitz, Margaret Sanger, Marlon Brando, and many others. The Mural at the Waverly Inn is an enduring delight to treasure and to give
