My Lucky Life In and Out of Show Business

by Dick Van Dyke

Dick Van Dyke, indisputably one of the greats of the golden age of television, is admired and beloved by audiences the world over for his beaming smile, his physical dexterity, his impeccable comic timing, his ridiculous stunts, and his unforgettable screen roles. His trailblazing television program, The Dick Van Dyke Show (produced by Carl Reiner, who has written the foreword to this memoir), was one of the most popular sitcoms of the 1960s and introduced another major television star, Mary Tyler Moore. But Dick Van Dyke was also an enormously engaging movie star whose films, including Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, have been discovered by a new generation of fans and are as beloved today as they were when they first appeared. Who doesn't know the word supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? A colorful, loving, richly detailed look at the decades of a multi-layered life, My Lucky Life In and Out of Show Business, will enthrall every generation of reader, from baby-boomers who recall when Rob Petrie became a household name, to all those still enchanted by Bert's "Chim Chim Cher-ee." This is a lively, heartwarming memoir of a performer who still thinks of himself as a "simple song-and-dance man," but who is, in every sense of the word, a classic entertainer.

My Lucky Star

by Joe Keenan

The luckless writing team of Philip Cavanaugh and Claire Simmons is lured to Hollywood by shifty pal Gilbert's offer of a lucrative screenwriting gig. Then comes the news that the project will be graced by Hollywood royalty - imperious screen legend Diana Malenfant, her son the fantastically sexy (and secretly gay) megastar Stephen Donato, plus his wife, Gina. But with such Star Power on board how long before three newbie scribes are replaced by more seasoned hands? Gilbert wrangles an interview but the boys find Diana and Stephen reeling from the news that Lily, Diana's washed-up actress sister, has decided to write her memoirs. Lily, who makes Norma Desmond seem a model of rational humility, knows Diana's most lurid secrets and has ample TNT to blow the hinges off Stephen's closet. Philip, instantly smitten with Stephen, proposes a crafty solution to the stars' memoir problem. The job is won and glory beckons. Unhappily for Philip, the road to glory proves liberally strewn with land mines including Stephen's pit bull of a publicist and his cheerfully indiscreet uncle Monty, not to mention the project itself... With the same exuberant wit he showed in his Frasier scripts, Joe Keenan weaves a brilliantly elaborate plot that sees our trio causing mayhem in a side-splitting story of bitter feuds, plagiarism and the seamier side of Tinseltown.

My Maggie

by Richard King

My Maggie is a rare and real love story. Rich and Maggie King were two people who never gave up on each other-a testament to a love few have the will to attain. She was his childhood sweetheart and wife of thirty-two years. Diagnosed with hearing loss at the age of four, she wore cumbersome hearing aids and felt the humiliation of being "different." Slowly, an insidious disease robbed her of her vision. She fought three different cancers, changed careers in the middle of her life, and fought to realize her dreams. Yet, underneath these great challenges, there was an incredible love shared by two people. It was cemented by adversity and reached a near perfect spiritual connection. They lived a classic old- fashioned love story. King shares one of the most powerful, complex, and memorable love stories ever written. It is an American story of great heroism, courage, and devotion. Maggie was a woman who understood how to lead a happy life and led it, in spite of the challenges placed in front of her. My Maggie is great drama, great passion, and great fun. It is a book written with a love so immense it almost defies description.

My Man Godfrey

by Eric Hatch

Written during the Depression, this book is a humorous and acid-etched look at the people of that time. A wealthy socialite adopts one of the "forgotten men", a homeless person, and introduces him to her family as their new butler. All kinds of consequences ensue and, by the end of the book, nothing is what it appeared to be at the beginning. This book became a popular movie of the time with the same name.

My Many Colored Days

by Dr Seuss

Here is a completely new and different kind of book by Dr. Seuss using a spectrum of colors, a menagerie of animals and his familiar bouncing rhyme. Dr. Seuss wrote this book about feelings and moods in 1973. He stated in a letter that he hoped "a great color artist who will not be dominated by me" could be found to illustrate the manuscript, one who might bring a "new art style and pattern of thinking" to his words. At last his text has found the perfect compliment in the stunning expressive paintings of Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher. With the playful type design, here is one beautiful book, bubbling with the kind of fun and emotional truth that is bound to appeal to very young children as well as to Dr. Seuss fans of all ages.

My Mother Talks to Trees

by Doris Gove

Laura is walking home from school with her mother. Much to Laura's dismay, her mom insists on stopping at trees along the way and speaking to them as if they were her friends. First Laura hopes no one will notice. Then she stands close to the trees, hoping passersby will think her mother is talking to her. As her mother greets each tree, mentioning its unique features, Laura grudgingly begins to take note, and slowly her curiosity overcomes her embarrassment. By the time they're almost home, Laura has made the acquaintance of many special trees in her neighborhood and has come to recognize each one's distinctive features. In the end, she has been infected by her mother's contagious enthusiasm for nature and she begins to develop her own relationship to the natural world. Doris Gove's charming tale will inspire budding young naturalists to get to know the trees in their own neighborhoods. General, easy-to-remember information in the story teaches children how to identify eleven common trees, including the dogwood, tulip poplar, maple and pine. A glossary at the back of the book provides more details.

My Mother's Keeper: A Daughter's Memoir of Growing Up in the Shadow of Schizophrenia

by Tara Elgin Holley Joe Holley

Dawn Elgin was destined to be a 1940s big-band star. From the time she was fourteen, she took her place at the microphone in Houston's elite Empire Room and sang with the voice of a jazz angel. Vibrant and glamorous, she boldly pursued her love of performing to New Orleans, Hollywood, and New York, where she gave birth to her daughter, Tara, when she was twenty-one. Then Dawn began to suffer persistent visions of a deathly specter at her bedside. She was diagnosed with acute paranoid schizophrenia and began a lifetime spent in and out of institutions. My Mother's Keeper is Tara's deeply moving story of growing up in the shadow of her mother's tragic illness. As Dawn's state worsened, Tara lived in the care of her imperious great-great-aunt Elsa - the family's elderly matriarch, who drew her into a rich world of old-fashioned treasures and Houston history - while her mother drifted in and out of Tara's life like a fading fairy princess. Though Tara yearned for her mother during her childhood, Dawn's condition was usually kept from her, the subject of secretive family discussion and neighborhood gossip. By the time Tara was seventeen she had become Dawn's guardian, bent on rescuing the shambling street person her mother had become and transforming her back into the beautiful, lively woman she remembered. Above all, it is a deeply moving exploration of the mother-daughter bond - of how Tara learned to balance her mother's needs with her own, and how she finally came to terms with Dawn's legacy when she became a mother herself. Emotionally compelling and powerfully rendered, My Mother's Keeper offers indelible proof of love's power to transcend a devastating illness.

My Name's Friday: The Unauthorized But True Story of Dragnet and the Films of Jack Webb

by Michael J. Hayden

Jack Webb's Dragnet was more than the crisp, campy color television series that played from 1966 to 1970. First there was the successful radio series of 1949 to 1957 and then the black-and-white television series of 1951 to 1959, which became the best-known, longest-running, and most-acclaimed police drama in television history. My Name's Friday tells the true stories of all these versions of Dragnet and its creator, director, star, and producer, Jack Webb, as the show and the man defined each other.

My New American Life

by Francine Prose

Lula, a twenty-six-year-old Albanian woman living surreptitiously in New York City on an expiring tourist visa, hopes to make a better life for herself in America. When she lands a job as caretaker to Zeke, a rebellious high school senior in suburban New Jersey, it seems that the security, comfort, and happiness of the American dream may finally be within reach. Her new boss, Mister Stanley, an idealistic college professor turned Wall Street executive, assumes that Lula is a destitute refugee of the Balkan wars. He enlists his childhood friend Don Settebello, a hotshot lawyer who prides himself on defending political underdogs, to straighten out Lula's legal situation. In true American fashion, everyone gets what he wants and feels good about it. But things take a more sinister turn when Lula's Albanian "brothers" show up in a brand-new black Lexus SUV. Hoodie, Leather Jacket, and the Cute One remind her that all Albanians are family, but what they ask of her is no small favor. Lula's new American life suddenly becomes more complicated as she struggles to find her footing as a stranger in a strange new land. Is it possible that her new American life is not so different from her old Albanian one?Set in the aftermath of 9/11, My New American Life offers a vivid, darkly humorous, bitingly real portrait of a particular moment in history, when a nation's dreams and ideals gave way to a culture of cynicism, lies, and fear. Beneath its high comic surface, the novel is a more serious consideration of immigration, of what it was like to live through the Bush-Cheney years, and of what it means to be an American.
