Ava's Man, Bragg, Rick
3 Ava's Man
Bragg, Rick: Alfred A Knopf Inc; New York, New York 2001 0375410627 / 9780375410628
First Edition Hard Cover Fine in Fine Dust Jacket: 6.5 x 9.5 in.: 259 pages 

002769002769: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. Editorial Review from Publishers Weekly: "Following up his bestselling memoir, All Over But the Shoutin', Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bragg again creates a soulful, poignant portrait of working-class Southern life by looking deep into his own family history. This new volume recounts the life of his maternal grand father, Charlie Bundrum, who died in 1958, one year before Rick was born. Lacking a grandfather, the New York Times reporter sets out to build one "from dirt level, using half-forgotten sayings, half-remembered stories and a few yellowed, brittle, black-and-white photographs. "His investigations in the Appalachian foothills along the Georgia-Alabama border turn up a beloved, larger-than-life rambler who inspired backwoods legend among contemporaries, undying devotion from his wife, Ava, and unabashed love and awe from his large extended family. Big-hearted but flawed, Bundrum was a man of contradiction. Genuinely devoted to his wife and children, he was a tenuous provider (a roofer by trade, he also cooked and frequently tasted his own moonshine) who fiercely defended his clan from trouble and hardship even as he occasionally brought it on them. He lived by a code of country justice that tolerated brawling with lawmen but disdained bullying, distinguished "good, solid biblical cursing" from mere "ugly talk, " and forswore spitting in the presence of ladies. Bragg strives for an unvarnished portrait and succeeds, mostly balancing tremendous affection for his grandfather with the recognition that Bundrum, the last of his kind and a connection to a culture of backwoods self-sufficiency long dead in the South, deserves and would demand an honest rendering. "He is so much more precious smelling of hot cornbread and whiskey than milk and honey. "

To date there have been over a dozen books written about Marlon Brando, and almost all of them have been inaccurate, based on hearsay, sensationalist or prurient in tone. Now, at last, fifty years after his first appearance onstage in New York City, the actor has told his life story, with the help of Robert Lindsey. The result is an extraordinary book, at once a funny, moving, absorbing, ribald, angry, self-deprecating and completely frank account of the career, both on-screen and off, of the greatest actor of our time.

Description of 'A WESTERN CELEBRATION': "This beautifully produced volume is a stunning, comprehensive visual work showcasing the entire collection of the Westerns and rare and vintage movie posters of John Wayne's career. It is an exclusive, stirring tribute to the unforgettable Duke, a man as large as the American West that he so loved. It celebrates Duke's Centennial year and his many contributions to the colorful tapestry of the West through his 87 Western movies. John Wayne had the unique ability to capture the spirits and show us the faces off the rugged individuals who left their tracks across the wild and unforgiving landscape of the West. It was the cowboy who became the American folk hero. And it was big John Wayne who came to represent the American cowboy and all the great qualities of America around the world. This book is for those who are proud to be American. An imposing feature length Western filmography that salutes and honors a timeless American. Maureen O'Hara best summed it up with her speech to the United States Congress in 1979 when she said: 'To the people of the world, John Wayne is the United States of America. He is what they believe it to be, what they hope it will be, and what they hope it always will be. '": Remainder

Or that you can see where Lucy was born and grew up on a bus tour? The answers to these and many more questions are in this little bottle…. Oops, we mean, the new book by Lucy A to Z author Michael Karol, called Lucy in Print. Lucy in Print offers the reader and fan hundreds of tidbits about America's best-loved comedian Lucille Ball, her landmark sitcom I Love Lucy, and her co-stars Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, William Frawley, all as seen through the eyes of the press coverage garnered by the Fab Foursome over the past 70 years. Tramp with starlet Lucille Ball through a ritzy New York hotel on a PR jag. See whether or not Vivian Vance was really required to gain weight for her role as Ethel Mertz. Discover if Desi really loved Lucy, or loved loosely. Author Michael Karol takes you back to the days of Hedda, Louella Walter and Rona, and adds his insightful commentary wherever applicable. He also takes you on a tour of Jamestown, Lucy's birthplace and the home of the Lucy-Desi Museum, currently enjoying a renaissance thanks to the watchful input of Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. You'll be hard pressed to find another book that offers so much fun and insight into the world of Lucille Ball, as she lived it, in the public eye.

"The story of Martha Stewart is the story of an incredible woman who had the brains to recognize opportunities when they dropped in her lap and who had the drive, energy, and determination to turn them into unprecedented success by gathering around her, and often ruthlessly exploiting, the talents, and sometimes even the loyalty of many people. The less visible story is how, and ultimately why, all this happened–the hidden world of Martha Stewart and her dreams. That is our story –the story of a little girl who never got over what life never gave her and wound up inventing for herself a past she had never known–a hologram of life so powerful that it not only convinced her personally but mesmerized the world. In time, the quiet little girl from the house on Elm Place became the richest self-made businesswoman in America–by selling the world all her missing parts. This is the story of what was missing, why it was missing, and how she turned it into a billion dollars."
