Cafe Society:The wrong place for the Right people Barney Josephson, Terry Trilling-Josephson
Who knew? Spies read! In a loft in the 18th Arrondissement near Montmartre, Jamie Litton has become intoxicated with his life as a member of Parisian Café Society. A group of artists, musicians, and poets unconditionally embrace their newest member, not knowing that this somewhat eccentric man hides a dangerous secret. His best friend Ben Foulof, a missing journalist, is on the run from a powerful news organization that wants its rogue agent back...dead or alive. If the bumbling mystery writer Jamie Litton should get in the way...kill him. But bring back his manuscript. It holds all the clues.

Truman Capote was one of the most gifted and flamboyant writers of his generation, renowned for such books as Other Voices, Other Rooms, Breakfast at Tiffany´s, and his masterpiece, In Cold Blood. What has received comparatively little attention, however, is Capote´s last, unfinished book, Answered Prayers, a merciless skewering of cafe society and the high-class women Capote called his ´´swans.´´ When excerpts appeared he was immediately blacklisted, ruined socially, labeled a pariah. Capote recoiled - disgraced, depressed, and all but friendless. In Tiny Terror, a new volume in Oxford´s Inner Lives series, William Todd Schultz sheds light on the life and works of Capote and answers the perplexing mystery - why did Capote write a book that would destroy him? Drawing on an arsenal of psychological techniques, Schultz illuminates Capote´s early years in the South - a time that Capote himself described as a ´´snake´s nest of No´s´´ - no parents to speak of, no friends but books, no hope, no future. Out of this dark childhood emerged Capote´s prominent dual life-scripts: Neurotic Capote, anxious, vulnerable, hypersensitive, expecting to be hurt; and Capote the disagreeable destroyer, emotionally bulletproof, nasty, and bent on revenge. Schultz shows how Capote would strike out when he felt hurt or taken for granted, engaging in caustic feuds with Gore Vidal, Tennessee Williams, and many other writers. And Schultz reveals how this tendency fed into Answered Prayers, an exceedingly corrosive and thinly disguised roman a clef that trashed his high-society friends. What emerges by the end of this audiobook is a cogent, immensely insightful portrait of an artist on the edge, brilliantly but self-destructively biting the jet-set hands that fed him. Anyone interested in the inner life of one of America´s most fascinating literary personalities will find this audiobook a revelation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Hyde White.

A New York Times notable book ´´Her technique was simple: aim for the top´´, an envious colleague wrote of Clare Boothe Luce. No American woman of the twentieth century aimed so accurately or rose so far as this legendary playwright, politician, and social seductress. Born in New York´s Spanish Harlem with nothing to recommend her but beauty, ferocious intelligence, and dry wit, she transformed herself into the youthful managing editor of Vanity Fair. She married two millionaires and wrote three Broadway hits, including the biting satire The Women. Her second husband, Henry Luce - the publisher of Time, Fortune, and later, at her suggestion, Life - was only one of the dozens of men she entranced. Adding politics and power to journalism and drama, Clare used sex, street smarts, acid humor, and money to plot a career more improbable than anything in her own fiction. Not content with mere wealth and the acclaim of transatlantic caf society, Clare Boothe Luce confessed to a ´´rage for fame´´. This extraordinary audiobook - the result of more than 15 years of research by Sylvia Jukes Morris, her chosen biographer - tells how she achieved it. 1. Language: English.

Frances Donaldson led a wonderfully multi-faceted life. As the daughter of the playwright Frederick Lonsdale, she grew up in the frivolous world of 1920s cafe society, yet she became a committed socialist. As the wife of Lord Donaldson, who was on the board of both London opera houses and was subsequently Minister for the Arts, she was at the centre of cultural life in Britain. Yet for many years she had been a farmer, since, during the Second World War, alone and with no experience, she was determined to make a go of it. Her first two books, both highly successful, were about farming; they were followed by a portrait of Evelyn Waugh, a biography of her father, and biographies of Edward VIII and P.O. Wodehouse, whom she knew as a child. Populated by characters as diverse as Waugh and Frederick Ashton, Tony Crosland and Ann Fleming, this delightful, highly personal memoir reflects the dramatically changing times which have shaped Frances Donaldson´s fascinating life. 1.

Do you remember the best summer of your life? New York City, 1945. Marjorie Jacobson and her best friend, Marty Garrett, arrive fresh from the Kappa house at the University of Iowa hoping to find summer positions as shopgirls. Turned away from the top department stores, they miraculously find jobs as pages at Tiffany & Co., becoming the first women to ever work on the sales floor - a diamond-filled day job replete with Tiffany blue shirtwaist dresses from Bonwit Teller´s - and the envy of all their friends. Hart takes us back to the magical time when she and Marty rubbed elbows with the rich and famous; pinched pennies to eat at the Automat; experienced nightlife at La Martinique; and danced away their weekends with dashing midshipmen. Between being dazzled by Judy Garland´s honeymoon visit to Tiffany, celebrating VJ Day in Times Square, and mingling with Caf society, she fell in love, learned unforgettable lessons, made important decisions that would change her future, and created the remarkable memories she now shares with all of us. 1.
