What if you could help your favorite team win the pennant? And what if you got to be the star of that team? For lifelong Washington Senators fan Joe Boyd that dream comes true when after seeing his team lose yet again, he rashly declares that he would sell his soul to the devil to see his team beat the Yankees. The Devil goes by Mr. Applegate now, and he agrees that Joe--a one-time baseball standout--will play for the Senators and help them reach the promised land. But Joe persuades Applegate to give him an escape clause, should he dislike his new identity. Applegate declares that he can back out at any time before the last game of the season--if he plays in the final game, he'll belong to the Devil.

On the road & off the record with Leonard Bernstein : my years with the exasperating genius by Charlie Harmon( Book )

2 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leonard Bernstein reeked of cheap cologne and obviously hadn't showered, shaved, or slept in a while. When he greeted his new assistant with, "What are you drinking?" the hapless hireling was certain that the maestro must be drunk as well. Charlie Harmon was hired to manage the day-to-day details of Bernstein's life. There was one additional responsibility: make sure Bernstein met the deadline for an opera commission. But things kept getting in the way: the centenary of Igor Stravinsky, intestinal parasites picked up in Mexico, teaching all summer in Los Angeles, a baker's dozen of young men, plus depression, exhaustion, insomnia, and cutthroat games of anagrams. Was the opera ever written? For four years, Charlie saw Bernstein every day--as his social director, gatekeeper, valet, music copyist, and itinerant orchestra librarian. He packed (and unpacked) Bernstein's umpteen pieces of luggage; got the Maestro to his concerts; kept him occupied while changing planes in Zurich, Anchorage, Tokyo, or Madrid, and learned how to make small talk with mayors, ambassadors, a chancellor, a queen, and a Hollywood legend or two. How could anyone absorb all those people and places? Because there was music: late-night piano duets, or the Maestro's command to accompany an audition, and, by the way, the greatest orchestras in the world. Charlie did it, and this is what it was like, told for the first time."--

Competing firms wages have already gone up, so why not theirs? Babe, the headstrong leader of the workers' Union stages a garment factory showdown with management, represented in person by the new factory superintendent Sid.
