reviewed Anne Frank Remembered (book). June 24, 2008
F8A51DEC65C6914FA0FF0FA2ED2991C
Written by the woman who helped hide Anne Frank, her family, and another family, this might be one of the most remarkable books I think I've ever read. I wouldn't say it's particularly well-written (it's …
reviewed Airplane. May 06, 2008
Airplane Movie Poster
I remember being in the theater as a kid and watching my mother double over with laughter when they got to the line, "A hospital?  What is it?", "It's a big building with patients, but that's not …
reviewed Bobby Short is Mad About Cole Porter. May 06, 2008
This is the best Bobby Short CD of all time, and maybe the best cassette of all time period.  Yes, I said cassette. As if the music alone weren't reason enough to get it, the cassette itself, which …
Celebrating 30 Years at the Cafe Carlyle
Bobby Short, king of the New York cabaret club scene and in-house entertainer at the famous Cafe Carlyle, is in rare form and great voice on this incredible CD.  This features some of his best, most …
reviewed The Member of the Wedding. April 29, 2008
Member of the Wedding
This book usually gets overshadowed by her other books like Ballad of the Sad Cafe, or The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, but for me, this is her best book.  I'm not even sure I can really describe it …
reviewed A Well-Kept Home: Household Tradition.... April 29, 2008
Well-Kept Home
I think the subtitle of this is something like "Secrets from a French grandmother" or something like that. It gives all these crazy tips about how to clean everything around your home according to …
reviewed The Frenchwoman's Bedroom. April 29, 2008
The Frenchwoman's Bedroom
Wow!  I bought this book about 14 years ago and I probably look through it once a month.  As the title would indicate, this is examines the bedrooms of several prominent Frenchwoman--some with …
reviewed Judgment Ridge: The True Story Behind.... April 29, 2008
Judgement Ridge
This is the kind of true crime book that intrigues me most--the "How Did This Happen" kind.  It recounts the events leading up to and through the murder of two very well-respected Dartmouth professors, …
reviewed Halfway Heaven. April 29, 2008
Halfway Heaven
This was written by Melanie Thurnstrom, a professor at Harvard who got involved in researching the murder of one co-ed at Harvard by her roomate.  The process takes her to Ethiopia where she tracks …
reviewed Truman Capote: In Which Various Frien.... April 29, 2008
Truman Capote George Plimpton
This is a much easier read than the Clarke biography on Capote, but just as fascinating. It's essentially a little background on Capote at certain stages of his life (in Plimpton's words), supplemented …
reviewed Capote: A Biography. April 29, 2008
Capote
This is one of the books that the movie, Capote, was based on, and I can't think of any biography I've ever read that is more thoroughly researched than this one.  At a certain point, Gerald Clarke …
reviewed Everybody Was So Young: Gerald and Sa.... April 29, 2008
Everybody Was So Young
I don't think this is as good as Living Well is the Best Revenge, which for me, is the ultimate review of this fascinating couple, but it's interesting nonetheless.  This one is a little harder to …
reviewed Sleeping Arrangements (book). April 29, 2008
Sleeping Arrangements
Especially for anyone who grew up in New York, this book is essential reading.  This memoir by Laura Cunningham, who is also an accomplished playwright, covers the time from just before her mother's …
