Salinger by David Shields( Book )

24 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J. D. Salinger was one of the twentieth century's greatest writers. He was also one of its most elusive. After making his mark on the American literary scene with the classic Bildungsroman The Catcher in the Rye, Salinger retreated to a small town in New Hampshire, where he hoped to hide his life away from the world. With dogged determination, however, journalist and biographer Paul Alexander captured Salinger's story in this, the only complete biography of Holden Caulfield's creator published to date. Using the archives at Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Columbia, NYU and the New York Public Library as well as research in New York and New Hampshire, Alexander has created a great biography of Salinger that's further enriched by interviews with some of the greatest literary figures of our time: George Plimpton, Gay Talese, Ian Hamilton, Harold Bloom, Roger Angell, A. Scott Berg, Robert Giroux, Ved Mehta, Gordon Lish and Tom Wolfe. This comprehensive biography of J. D. Salinger was the inspiration for the major Hollywood film Salinger, directed by Shane Salerno and produced by The Weinstein Company, the producers of blockbuster films including The Iron Lady and Silver Linings Playbook"--Publisher's description

Death and disaster : the rise of the Warhol empire and the race for Andy's millions by Paul Alexander( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Death is where this story begins; disaster is what follows. In 1987, Andy Warhol overcame his deep fear of hospitalization to seek treatment for a gallbladder ailment he'd neglected for fourteen years. "I'm not gonna make it," he said to his personal physician, who assured him that the surgery he faced was routine. The operation was both routine and successful, but less than twenty-four hours later, Warhol was dead. The shocking news set off a blizzard of activity: Warhol's East Side townhouse was sealed, his executor took charge, lawyers were called in, canvases were moved to secret warehouse (some never to be seen again), security guards were posted at the Factory. The world that Andy Warhol had carefully constructed over three decades was about to go public
Machiavelli's shadow : the rise and fall of Karl Rove by Paul Alexander( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl Rove has come to personify scorched-earth political tactics and merciless, win-at-any-cost trickery. His status as the so-called architect behind Bush's election victories has elevated him to a mythic kingmaker in the national imagination. Not since Mark Hanna, special assistant to President William McKinley, has someone not elected to public office played such a vital role in the governance of our nation. We know the myth, but who is the man? In Machiavelli's Shadow, the full, unvarnished truth about the mastermind of the Bush administration is revealed as swirling scandals and Karl Rove's diminished power have freed people to speak candidly as never before. Acclaimed author and veteran journalist Paul Alexander tracks Rove's journey from consummate outsider to presidential consigliere, conducting firsthand interviews with list sources who have never gone on the record about Rove before now. The result is a gripping, no-holds-barred account of the man whose insistence on politicizing any area on which he has advised the president--from the war in Iraq to domestic issues like Social Security, energy, the environment, and hotly controversial judicial matters--has brought about his own fall from grace and an escalating crisis within the government and the nation. Drawing on the author's extensive connections in the political arena and delving into all areas of Rove's life--political, business, psychological, and personal--this book stands as the definitive portrait of one of the most fascinating figures ever to emerge on the American political scene

Homicidal by Paul Alexander( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People simply will not accept the fact that there is such a thing as a homicidal mind, Truman Capote once said, People who would kill as easily as they would write a bad check. But people like this do exist-and in Homicidal, journalist and crime writer Paul Alexander profiles one of the most brutal homicidal minds in criminal history. According to allegations, Lonnie Franklin Jr. killed at least ten women-maybe more-in the Los Angeles area over 25 years. Because of serious mistakes in the LAPD's handling of the case, Franklin stayed active for decades-a terrifyingly normal serial killer next door who met his victims mostly through random encounters. The best-selling author of true crime titles Accused, Murdered, and Mistried, Alexander delves deep into law enforcement records and collects never-before-heard firsthand accounts to cast new light on this complicated case. Combining the attention to detail of a crime journalist with the eloquent style of a literary master, Alexander will leave you wondering-could you recognize the serial killer next door?
