Oh, God!

by Avery Corman

For a God whom philosophers have proclaimed dead, there's only one thing to do: drum up a little publicity"God grants you an interview. Go to 600 Madison Ave., room 3700, Monday, at 11 a.m." When a struggling writer receives this typed note in the mail one morning, curiosity wins out and he finds himself keeping this mysterious appointment. Soon he's in an ordinary conference room with an intercom on the floor, furiously scribbling shorthand notes as he interviews God, a deity who badly wants to improve His public profile. Sometimes God speaks through the intercom, other times He communicates as a hot dog vendor on the corner. But however God appears, He's giving this anointed journalist the story of a lifetime--and all he has to do is sell the story to the public. Adapted as the classic film starring George Burns, Oh, God! is a warm and witty satire about life, the Lord, the media, and the need for some good publicity. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Avery Corman, including rare images from the author's personal collection.

Oh God! A Black Woman's Guide to Sex and Spirituality

by Susan Newman

Far too many African American women struggle with a deep division between the two fundamental pillars of their identity--spirituality and sexuality. The church tells them that to live "holy and sanctified" lives they must give up sexual activity outside the institution of marriage, and yet their bodies and souls cry out for a way to express and fulfill their natural passions. In this groundbreaking book, the Reverend Dr. Susan Newman, a nationally recognized minister and speaker, finally shows all women of faith how to find a healthy balance between their spiritual selves and their sexual needs.Dr. Newman opens with a simple but startling premise: You can love God and love sex at the same time. Though it may sound irreverent, this premise is actually the basis for an essential journey to self-knowledge and reconciliation. As Dr. Newman shows, this journey has been denied to women for centuries because of church traditions and doctrines going back to the Old Testament and to the teachings of Saint Paul. For African American women, the spiritual-sexual divide was compounded by slavery.But women of faith do not have to live divided lives. Writing with passion, candor, and welcome humor, Dr. Newman opens new paths to healing and reconciliation. Here are frank, direct discussions about sex both inside and outside marriage; about being honest about your spiritual and erotic needs; about making personal choices; and about acknowledging the holiness of your body.The goal, as Dr. Newman explains, is not to suppress or channel your sexuality, but to embrace sex as a wonderful gift from God. As a woman of faith-and as a woman-you deserve a healthy, satisfying life, a life open to passion and truly free of guilt and shame. The first book of its kind, Oh God! is a landmark achievement that will be welcomed by black women who want to live in wholeness of spirit and body.

Ladies, this is the most female educational, info-tainment book. Men, this is the most non male bashing book ever made. You won t be disappointed.

Oh My Goth

by Gena Showalter

A fiercely individualist Goth girl wakes up to discover that the whole world has gone Goth and she's actually -- gag -- popular. Jade Leigh is a nonconformist who values individuality above all else.

But when Jade's smart mouth lands her in trouble -- again -- her principal decides to teach her a lesson she'll never forget. Taken to a remote location where she is strapped down and sedated, Jade wakes up in an alternate universe where she rules the school.

Oh the Hell of It All: A Memoir

by Pat Montandon

Thrust into the media spotlight with her son Sean Wilsey's searing portrayal of her in his New York Times bestseller Oh the Glory of It All, the former queen of San Francisco society shares her own candid take on the fascinating events of her life. Once dubbed San Francisco's "Golden Girl," Montandon socialized with the cream of San Francisco society, including Danielle Steel, Alex Haley, and the Gettys. Immortalized as a character in Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City, she lived a seemingly perfect life in a penthouse above the San Francisco Bay, complete with her marriage to multimillionaire Al Wilsey and the birth of her son, Sean. From her lavish parties to her legendary Roundtable lunches, Montandon was always the talk of the town. Then, less than a decade later, Wilsey announced he was divorcing her, and Sean abandoned her as well--both for the affections of her once-close friend, Dede Traina. Left penniless and virtually suicidal, Montandon once again had to reinvent herself, this time as a humanitarian for peace. From Berlin to Beslan, she made it her life's mission to give a voice to the world's children and spread a message of hope in times of crisis. Oh the Hell of It All is a rich feast of a story: that of a poor girl turned rich turned poor again, in and out of love and betrayed by those closest to her, who has achieved peace in her life through devotion to something outside herself.

Oh Those Harper Girls, or Young and Dangerous

by Kathleen Karr

Dear Gentle Reader, Daddy started us off early in a life of crime. It must have had something to do with his frustration in siring six daughters. We came mostly with the spring, one after the other, barely a year 'twixt each of us. March, April, May, June, July; and then there was me, Lily. I came in April, too, but they'd already used up that month. I guess I've always been the maverick of the family. So it's only natural I should be telling this story of the infamous Harper Girls. It's all Gospel truth, right on up to the part about jail, our brief stage career, and everything. I tell it now in the belief that it may be an object lesson for one and all. Also, I need the money, so I hope you buy a copy of my little book. Sincerely, Lily Harper Hogan

by Culture Clash

"Midway through Water & Power comes a scene so perfectly written, so chilling and yet so hilarious [it] encapsulates all the anger and social criticism fueling [the play], beginning with the agonizing realization (also central to Culture Clash's smash Chavez Ravine) that the fates of the L.A. many are held in the hands of the often capricious and heartless few."--VarietyFor Zorro in Hell:"The funniest show the Bay Area comedy troupe has ever written. Culture Clash uses the story [of Zorro] as a starting point for a devastatingly hilarious satire of just about everything Californians hold dear."--Contra Costa TimesIn this trio of plays, Culture Clash rewrites California's past in the performance troupe's own irreverent comic style, interweaving pop culture with their home state's local history. In Chavez Ravine, called "a hell-raising home run" by Variety, they cover the land grab that uprooted an entire community and built Dodger Stadium. In Water & Power, the topic is the assimilation of Latinos and their rise to political influence. And in Zorro in Hell, Culture Clash re-imagines early California through the eyes of the original masked man.Culture Clash is Richard Montoya, Ric Salinas, and Herbert Siguenza. Founded in San Francisco's Mission District on Cinco de Mayo in 1984, they have become the most prominent Chicano/Latino performance troupe in the United States. Their work ranges from sketch comedy to full-length plays and adaptations of Greek classics, and has been produced at universities and theaters throughout the country.

Oh, Yikes!: History's Grossest, Wackiest Moments

by Joy Masoff Terry Sirrell

Gross is back and viler than ever! From the author of Oh, Yuck! the perennial bestseller about science with over 610,000 copies in print, comes OH, YIKES!, an illustrated encyclopedia of history's messiest, dumbest, grossest, wackiest, and weirdest moments. If kids think pus and gas are fun, wait until they hear the lowdown on the real Dracula, samurai, gladiators, guillotines and vomitoriums, pirates, Vikings, witch trials, and the world's poxiest plagues. Impeccably researched, deliciously wry, and subversively educational (check out the toilet-paper timeline), OH, YIKES! covers people, events, institutions, and really bad ideas, alphabetically from April Fool's Day to zany Zoos. Here are the Aztecs, sacrificing 250,000 people a year for the gods--and for food. Fearsome Attila the Hun, scourge of the steppes whose spinning eyes terrified his friends and whose mastery of horses terrorized his enemies (how does someone so evil die? Nosebleed!). Saur, the 11th-century dog-king of Norway (and not too bad as kings go). Henry VIII and his marital problems, the story of the Abominable Snowman and the Loch Ness Monster, why sailors in the old days preferred eating in the dark (hint: you can't see what's crawling in your food), and the answer to the question, "How did knights in armor go to the bathroom?" Topped off with hundreds of illustrations and photographs along with hands-on activities that bring the past to life, OH, YIKES! puts the juice in history in a way that makes it irresistible.

Oh! You Pretty Things

by Shanna Mahin

From a PEN Center USA Emerging Voices Fellow comes a charming and disarming tale of Los Angeles that navigates the fringe of celebrity excess from the other side of Sunset Boulevard.Jess Dunne is third-generation Hollywood, but her star on the boulevard has yet to materialize. Sure, she's got a Santa Monica address and a working actress roommate, but with her nowhere barista job in a town that acknowledges zeroes only as a dress size, she's a dead girl walking.Enter Jess's mother--a failed actress who puts the strange in estrangement. She dives headlong into her daughter's downward spiral, forcing Jess to muster all her spite and self-preservation to snag a career upgrade.As a personal assistant for a famous (and secretly agoraphobic) film composer, Jess's workdays are now filled with shopping for luxury goods and cooking in his perfectly designed kitchen. Jess kills at cooking, a talent that only serves her intensifying urge to dig in to Los Angeles's celebrity buffet.When her food garners the attention of an actress on the rise, well, she's all too willing to throw it in with the composer and upgrade again, a decision that will have far-reaching ramifications that could explode all her relationships.All the while, her mother looms ever closer, forcing Jess to confront the traumatic secrets she's been running from all her life. Oh! You Pretty Things is a dizzying ride at the carnival of fame, a fast-paced and sharply funny work that dares to imagine what happens when we go over the top in a town of gilded excess.
