Books Synopsis

79 Park Avenue es la dirección de una Agencia de Modelos. Pero tras esa inocente fachada se oculta el prostíbulo más lujoso de Nueva York, una agencia de contactos muy especial para un público muy especial: hombres poderosos dispuestos a pagar hasta 1.000 dólares por unas pocas horas en compañía de las más bellas mujeres. Al frente del negocio se encuentra Maryann Flood, una mujer bella, atractiva y muy inteligente que lo tiene todo para triunfar y sin embargo se ha visto obligada a sobrevivir en un mundo depravado y banal, un mundo corrupto del que nunca pudo escapar. Atrás quedó su verdadero nombre, Marja, como atrás quedaron los años 30, posteriores a la gran depresión, tiempos difíciles en los que el hambre, la pobreza y el desempleo vieron crecer a la exuberante adolescente de ascendencia polaca. Una joven que perdió su inocencia demasiado pronto, a la que no le está permitido amar, una mujer que no puede cambiar su vida y se ve obligada a empezar de nuevo una y otra vez valiéndose siempre de las mismas armas: su cuerpo y el deseo que suscita en los hombres. Esta vez se enfrenta a la que quizá sea su situación más complicada: está siendo juzgada por prostitución. De ser declarada culpable, su vida se vendrá de nuevo abajo, pues tendrá que pasar una larga temporada en prisión. Sin embargo, cuenta con el mejor abogado de la ciudad y guarda un as en la manga: conoce al ayudante del fiscal del distrito desde que eran niños… Harold Robbins, el más popular de los escritores norteamericanos contemporáneos, nos da en 79 Park Avenue una nueva muestra de su indudable capacidad narrativa. Una novela de acción constante que mezcla de manera espectacular elementos del thriller de juicios y de la novela romántica. Un relato que atrapa al lector desde sus primeras páginas gracias a su audaz tratamiento, al talento de Robbins y a su maestría como narrador.

Sexy, outrageous, and irresistible, Tycoon showcases Harold Robbins at his rip-roaring best. Jack Lear rises from a modest Jewish background to take on the WASP world, but never quite feels he's succeeded in his ambition to be accepted as one of them. Making his fortune as a pioneering radio and television broadcaster and founding a landmark network isn’t enough—nor is the money, fame, and women who go with it. He continues to hunger for what he cannot have. Here is a tale that only Harold Robbins could tell: of Jack’s torrid relationship with his first wife, a WASP social heiress; of his affairs with everybody from chamber maids to duchesses; of his second marriage to a world-class beauty and society figure; and ultimately of his life-long struggle to make his network # 1, and to give it a sense of class that sets it apart from all the others.

Win Liberte has it all. He prides himself on never having worked a day in his life. He has everything he wants - fast cars, beautiful women, a racing yacht, a penthouse in Manhattan. Orphaned at eleven, Win inherited an international diamond business that is managed by his uncle. Then Win loses it all when his uncle commits suicide after investing all of Win's money in a scheme that fails. His single remaining asset is a bankrupt diamond mine in Angola, a steaming, war-ravaged country in equatorial Africa. In the blood and muck of central Africa, Win experiences the "Diamond Curse" first hand. Battles over Angola's vast wealth in gems occur daily, and fights for control of the diamond industry have wiped out generations. Thriving on the challenge, Win founds an international diamond business that challenges a powerful cartel's stranglehold on the market. Loved by two women - a movie goddess who sears men's souls and a dedicated UN worker who risks her life in Africa - Win doesn't find anything worth living for until he loses love. From the tunnels of the diamond mine to the stage at the Academy Awards, from the beds of beautiful women to a battle with warlords, Win has to fight to get back everything he ever wanted.

Continuing the phenomenal story in The Betsy, The Stallion reintroduces the Hardeman family and the cutthroat world of their vast automobile empire, where the stakes are high and every man, and woman, is a gambler. Loren Hardeman, known as “Number One,” is gradually transferring control of Bethlehem Motors to his grandson, Loren Hardeman III—a man possessed with his father’s cunning, but sadly lacking in his ability to go for the kill. So when Angelo Perino, an outsider previously nurtured by Number One, threatens the position held by Hardeman III, what ensues is a battle of wills in which integrity takes a backseat to animal instinct, and in which there can only be one winner. Bursting with huge ingredients of lust, greed, sex, and intrigue—and a plot full of twists and double-crosses—this is Harold Robbins at his sizzling best.

Books Synopsis

An instant #1 New York Times bestseller, Primates of Park Avenue is an “amusing, perceptive and…deliciously evil” (The New York Times Book Review) memoir of the most secretive and elite tribe—Manhattan’s Upper East Side mothers. When Wednesday Martin first arrives on New York City’s Upper East Side, she’s clueless about the right addresses, the right wardrobe, and the right schools, and she’s taken aback by the glamorous, sharp-elbowed mommies around her. She feels hazed and unwelcome until she begins to look at her new niche through the lens of her academic background in anthropology. As she analyzes the tribe’s mating and migration patterns, childrearing practices, fetish objects, physical adornment practices, magical purifying rituals, bonding rites, and odd realities like sex segregation, she finds it easier to fit in and even enjoy her new life. Then one day, Wednesday’s world is turned upside down, and she finds out there’s much more to the women who she’s secretly been calling Manhattan Geishas. “Think Gossip Girl, but with a sociological study of the parents” (InStyle.com), Wednesday’s memoir is absolutely “eye-popping” (People). Primates of Park Avenue lifts a veil on a secret, elite world within a world—the strange, exotic, and utterly foreign and fascinating life of privileged Manhattan motherhood.

Books Synopsis

The Stone Diaries marked a new phase in a literary career already ablaze with achievement. As well as the many international awards it received, including the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Governor General's Award, the book also met with universal critical acclaim and topped bestseller lists around the world. "Carol Shields," raved Maclean's, "has crafted a small miracle of a novel." "The Stone Diaries," said the New York Times Book Review, "reminds us again why literature matters." The San Diego Tribune called The Stone Diaries "a universal study of what makes women tick." Now, in Larry's Party, Carol Shields does the same for men. Larry Weller, born in 1950, is an ordinary guy made extraordinary by his creator's perception, irony and tenderness. Larry's Party gives us, as it were, a CAT scan of his life, in episodes between 1977 and 1997 that flash backward and forward seamlessly. As Larry journeys toward the new millennium, adapting to society's changing expectations of men, Shields' elegant prose transforms the trivial into the momentous. We follow this young floral designer through two marriages and divorces, his interactions with parents, friends and a son. And throughout, we witness his deepening passion for garden mazes -- so like life, with their teasing treachery and promise of reward. Among all the paradoxes and accidents of his existence, Larry moves through the spontaneity of the seventies, the blind enchantment of the eighties and the lean, mean nineties, completing at last his quiet, stubborn search for self. Larry's odyssey mirrors the male condition at the end of our century with targeted wit, unerring poignancy and faultless wisdom.

Luz had nightheat, the sensuous quality in a woman that makes men ache with desire. Nick loved and lusted for her the first time he saw her. But what he didn't know was that Luz had secrets--that beneath the glamour and sex appeal was a woman determined to turn her back on wealth and challenge a corrupt political system. Even if doing so meant her life. Nick started out dirt poor--as a child, he survived the war-torn frozen hell of the siege of Leningrad and saw his mother starve to death as fat-cat bureaucrats ate well. He learned early that there were the haves and have-nots in this world. He was going to get everything rich people had--and more. From a brutal Soviet orphanage to a plantation in the steamy jungles of the Caribbean, from sultry, violent Havana to the dangerous streets of Santo Domingo, Nick battled men who controlled and exploited the wealth of nations. With bootleg vodka and exotic rum, he built a business empire that would one day bring him into conflict with the most brutal dictator in the Caribbean--and a struggle for the love and life of the only woman he ever truly loved.

But when Danny's family falls on hard times, moving from their comfortable home in Brooklyn to Manhattan's squalid Lower East Side, he is forced to leave his carefree childhood behind.

During his fifty-year career Harold Robbins, the godfather of the airport novel, sold approximately 750 million copies of his books worldwide. His seventh novel, The Carpetbaggers, a steamy tale of sex, greed, and corruption loosely based on the life of Howard Hughes, is the fourth-most-read book in history.

Over the course of his five-decade career, Robbins spent money as quickly as he earned it, reportedly wasting away $50 million on everything from booze and drugs to yachts and prostitutes. Based on extensive interviews with family members and friends, including Larry Flynt and Barbara Eden, Harold Robbins examines the remarkable life of the man who gave birth to the cult of the modern bestseller and introduced sex to the American marketplace.

Books Synopsis

In 1936, as television networks CBS, DuMont, and NBC experimented with new ways to provide entertainment, NBC deviated from the traditional method of single experimental programs to broadcast the first multi-part program, Love Nest, over a three-episode arc. This would come to be known as a miniseries. Although the term was not coined until 1954, several other such miniseries were broadcast, including Jack and the Beanstalk and Women in Wartime. In the mid-1960s the concept was developed into a genre that still exists. While the major broadcast networks pioneered the idea, it quickly became popular with cable and streaming services. This encyclopedic source contains a detailed history of 878 TV miniseries broadcast from 1936 to 2020, complete with casts, networks, credits, episode count and detailed plot information.

Books Synopsis

A landmark study by the leading critic of African American film and television Primetime Blues is the first comprehensive history of African Americans on network television. Donald Bogle examines the stereotypes, which too often continue to march across the screen today, but also shows the ways in which television has been invigorated by extraordinary black performers, whose presence on the screen has been of great significance to the African American community. Bogle's exhaustive study moves from the postwar era of Beulah and Amos 'n' Andy to the politically restless sixties reflected in I Spy and an edgy, ultra-hip program like Mod Squad. He examines the television of the seventies, when a nation still caught up in Vietnam and Watergate retreated into the ethnic humor of Sanford and Son and Good Times and the poltically conservative eighties marked by the unexpected success of The Cosby Show and the emergence of deracialized characters on such dramatic series as L.A. Law. Finally, he turns a critical eye to the television landscape of the nineties, with shows such as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, I'll Fly Away, ER, and The Steve Harvey Show.

Books Synopsis

American Empress is a sweeping history of the dramatic life of heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, daughter of breakfast-cereal magnate C. W. Post. As a young girl growing up in the Midwest, Marjorie Post helped glue cereal boxes in her father's barn, later became a board member of his company, wed a diplomat and by late middle age was widely acknowledged as the unofficial "Queen of Washington, D.C." The glamorous and warm-hearted Mrs. Post was also mother to actress Dina Merrill. Throughout her life, she gave generously to hundreds of civic, artistic and philanthropic causes, among which were the National Symphony Orchestra, the Washington Ballet and the Kennedy Center. By virtue of her brains, beauty and great wealth, Mrs. Post was a woman well ahead of her era, whose natural business acumen created the frozen foods industry and transformed the Postum Cereal Company into the General Foods Corporation.

Books Synopsis

Harold Robbins neemt je in ‘De droomfabrikanten’ mee naar waar de filmindustrie ooit begon: Hollywood. John Edge werkte er als conciërge, maar heeft uiteindelijk de top weten te bereiken als producent en machtige mediamagnaat. Maar in het bikkelharde Hollywood is het ieder voor zich en de concurrentie is moordend. Zelfs zijn vrouw lijkt hem het succes niet te gunnen en gebruikt hem voor haar eigen belangen. John Edge had alles bereikt waar hij als kind van droomde, maar maakt dit hem ook gelukkig? Duik in de wereld van macht, rijkdom en sluwe beloftes in het oude Hollywood. De in New York geboren Harold Robbins (1916-1997) is een van de meest gelezen auteurs ter wereld. Er zijn meer dan 750 miljoen exemplaren van zijn romans verkocht en zijn boeken zijn vertaald in 32 talen. In 1948 brak hij door met zijn allereerste roman ‘Hart zonder toegang’ dat door enkele expliciete seksuele passages de aandacht wekte onder het Amerikaanse publiek. Ook werden maar liefst twaalf romans verfilmd met niemand minder dan Elvis Presley in de hoofdrol in ‘King Creole’. In het boek ‘De droomfabrikanten’, later ook verfilmd, vertelt Robbins over de filmindustrie in Hollywood dat gedeeltelijk gebaseerd is op zijn ervaringen uit de tijd dat hij daar werkzaam was. Andere bekende werken zijn ‘79 Park Avenue’ (1955), ‘De duivel als leidsman’ (1961) en ‘De avonturiers’ (1966). Hoewel sommige romans bijna zeventig jaar oud zijn, komen hedendaagse onderwerpen aan bod zoals prestige, geld en macht.

Books Synopsis

With one immigrant’s story, two authors analyze America’s immigration system and suggest better, more human policies. The Accidental American calls for a bold new approach to immigration: a free international flow of labor to match globalization’s free flow of capital. After all, corporations are encouraged to move anywhere in the world they can maximize their earnings. People shouldn’t have to risk exploitation, abuse, and even imprisonment when they try to do the same. Activist, journalist, and immigration expert Rinku Sen and organizer Fekkak Mamdouh examine the consequences of this injustice through Mamdouh’s own story. Born in Morocco, he was a waiter and union leader at Windows on the World, a restaurant in the World Trade Center. In the aftermath of September 11th, facing a rising tide of anti-immigrant bias, Mamdouh and others formed the Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York (ROC-NY) to help their colleagues fight for decent jobs and fair treatment. ROC-NY was able to unite native-born and immigrant workers, helping each group realize they were involved in a common struggle for better working conditions. The organization has since expanded nationwide. Since 9/11, immigrants have increasingly been treated as presumptive criminals. As a counterpoint to these regressive, fundamentally un-American practices, the authors forcefully advocate more humane policies that would ease rather than restrict people’s movements, coupled with proposals for reforming globalization so that both sending and receiving countries can more equitably benefit from a more mobile international labor force. Immigrants enthusiastically contribute much more to our country than their labor. They ought to be welcomed, not marginalized. Citizenship should ultimately be determined by how willing people are to become a part of the social, civic, and political fabric of the country they live in, not by an accident of birth. “The Accidental American gives us the context, story and analysis we need for a just immigration policy. It is a must-read.” —Danny Glover, actor and activist “If you have ever had to struggle as an outsider or a newcomer (and all of us have), this book will touch your heart. It is a poignant story that points the way forward for us all.” —Van Jones, President and Founder, Green for All, and author of The Green Collar Economy “This book vividly highlights a seldom-mentioned side of recent immigrants’ experience: their willingness to struggle for better working conditions for workers of all ethnicities in their adopted nation.” —Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed, Bait and Switch, and Dancing in the Streets

Books Synopsis

A vibrant and insightful essay collection about life as a poet in Southern California Poetry and Hollywood may not seem compatible in anyone’s book. But acclaimed poet, novelist, and critic Carol Muske-Dukes finds common ground for both in meditations on movie sets and metaphors, on the big screen and the luminous focus of a haiku. I Married the Icepick Killer offers the reader ways to reimagine the Imagination itself. Former California Poet Laureate Muske-Dukes explores Southern California’s unexpected poetry, from Emily Dickinson on freeway billboards to poet-script doctors rewriting action-flick dialogue. Moving personal essays recount the story of Muske-Dukes’s romance with her late husband, actor David Coleman Dukes, whom she met in Italy and relocated with in Los Angeles. Muske-Dukes sharpens her astute gaze as she addresses contradictions and convergences between belle lettres and the ever-surprising City of Angels. This ebook was originally published as Married to the Icepick Killer.

Books Synopsis

We live in a world of stories; yet few of us pause to ask what stories actually are, why we consume them so avidly, and what they do for story makers and their audiences. This book focuses on the experiences that good stories generate: feelings of purposeful involvement, elevation, temporary loss of self, vicarious emotion, and relief of tension. The author examines what drives writers to create stories and why readers fall under their spell; why some children grow up to be writers; and how the capacity for creating and comprehending stories develops from infancy right through into old age. Entranced by Story applies recent research on brain function to literary examples ranging from the Iliad and Wuthering Heights to Harold and the Purple Crayon, providing a groundbreaking exploration of the biological and neurological basis of the literary experience. Blending research, theory, and biographical anecdote, the author shows how it is the unique structure of the human brain, with its layering of sophisticated cognitive capacities upon archaic, emotion-driven functions, which best explains the mystery of story.

Books Synopsis

Jefferson Parish is the story of a boy, Matthew Laurent. Born during the post-desegregated south but before full acceptance of races “other” than his own, the white race. While much of the overt racism of the old south was gone, it was not totally eradicated. In fact, in the early 1980’s there were still plenty of racist holdouts, unwilling to let their old, oppressive way die. Not long after the death of his brother, Matthew’s life would dramatically change forever. Feeling alone and struggling to make sense of the world, Matthew befriended a new classmate, Jamal. Jamal, a black boy new to Jefferson Parish...shy and reserved at first, he and Matt would form a bond that would last a lifetime. Both Matthew and Jamal had big dreams. The boys, each in search of something, but something very different from each other, wanted more than Jefferson Parish could offer. Matthew would eventually find himself working in the Middle East where he would meet a beautiful young woman that made him feel something he had thought he had lost forever. Events would compel Matt to return to Jefferson Parish and force him to address both old and new wounds. Back in the parish, he soon realized that while some people were willing to change, others were not. Matt’s life is one of turmoil, though he himself is not tumultuous. Searching for meaning and stability, Matt’s journey seems fraught with pain, yet he can’t give up. Happiness might be right around the corner. Jefferson Parish is the story of family, by blood or other, racial intolerance, friendship and most of all forgiveness.

An Oprah.com Best Romance Novel of 2019! “Perfect for readers who love the dishy women's fiction of Candace Bushnell.” —Booklist From the author of the New York Times bestselling Stiletto and Oxford series, the first in a sizzling new series following the unlikely friendship of three Upper East Side women as they struggle to achieve their dreams and find true love and happiness in the city that never sleeps. For as long as she can remember, Bronx-born Naomi Powell has had one goal: to prove her worth among the Upper East Side elite—the same people for which her mom worked as a housekeeper. Now, as the strongminded, sassy CEO of one of the biggest jewelry empires in the country, Naomi finally has exactly what she wants—but it’s going to take more than just the right address to make Manhattan’s upper class stop treating her like an outsider. The worst offender is her new neighbor, Oliver Cunningham—the grown son of the very family Naomi’s mother used to work for. Oliver used to torment Naomi when they were children, and as a ridiculously attractive adult, he’s tormenting her in entirely different ways. Now they find themselves engaged in a battle-of-wills that will either consume or destroy them. “Strong characters and relatable situations elevate Layne’s bighearted contemporary...[which] digs into class differences, emotional baggage, and the reality of dealing with aging parents” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). With the sexy combination of charm, heart, and snark, Lauren Layne’s new series is perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Sally Thorne.
