The first biography of America's greatest twentieth-century sculptor, Alexander Calder: an authoritative and revelatory achievement, based on a wealth of letters and papers never before available, and written by one of our most renowned art critics. Alexander Calder is one of the most beloved and widely admired artists of the twentieth century. Anybody who has ever set foot in a museum knows him as the inventor of the mobile, America's unique contribution to modern art. But only now, forty years after the artist's death, is the full story of his life being told in this biography, which is based on unprecedented access to Calder's letters and papers as well as scores of interviews. Jed Perl shows us why Calder was--and remains--a barrier breaker, an avant-garde artist with mass appeal. This beautifully written, deeply researched book opens with Calder's wonderfully peripatetic upbringing in Philadelphia, California, and New York. Born in 1898 into a family of artists--his father was a well-known sculptor, his mother a painter and a pioneering feminist--Calder went on as an adult to forge important friendships with a who's who of twentieth-century artists, including Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp, Georges Braque, and Piet Mondrian. We move through Calder's early years studying engineering to his first artistic triumphs in Paris in the late 1920s, and to his emergence as a leader in the international abstract avant-garde. His marriage in 1931 to the free-spirited Louisa James--she was a great-niece of Henry James--is a richly romantic story, related here with a wealth of detail and nuance. Calder's life takes on a transatlantic richness, from New York's Greenwich Village in the Roaring Twenties, to the Left Bank of Paris during the Depression, and then back to the United States, where the Calders bought a run-down old farmhouse in western Connecticut. New light is shed on Calder's lifelong interest in dance, theater, and performance, ranging from the Cirque Calder, the theatrical event that became his calling card in bohemian Paris to collaborations with the choreographer Martha Graham and the composer Virgil Thomson. More than 350 illustrations in color and black-and-white--including little-known works and many archival photographs that have never before been seen--further enrich the story.

Not So Good a Gay Man is the compelling memoir of author, screenwriter, and activist Frank M. Robinson. Frank M. Robinson (1926-2014) accomplished a great deal in his long life, working in magazine publishing, including a stint for Playboy, and writing science fiction such as The Power, The Dark Beyond the Stars, and thrillers such as The Glass Inferno (filmed as The Towering Inferno). Robinson also passionately engaged in politics, fighting for gay rights, and most famously writing speeches for his good friend Harvey Milk in San Francisco. This deeply personal autobiography, addressed to a friend in the gay community, explains the life of one gay man over eight decades in America. By turns witty, charming, and poignant, this memoir grants insights into Robinson's work not just as a journalist and writer, but as a gay man navigating the often perilous social landscape of 20th century life in the United States. The bedrock sincerity and painful honesty with which he describes this life makes Not So Good a Gay Man compelling reading. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Die mehrfach ausgezeichnete Schauspielerin Drew Barrymore erzählt die lustigsten, eindrucksvollsten und ergreifendsten Geschichten aus ihrem Leben. Angefangen bei ihrer Jugend als Kinderstar, über die skandalträchtigen Teenager-Jahre bis hin zu ihrem heutigen Leben als glückliche Mutter von zwei Töchtern. Wildflower ist ein Porträt von Drews Leben in einzelnen Geschichten, in denen sie zurückblickt auf ein bewegtes Leben voller Abenteuer, Herausforderungen und unglaublicher Erfahrungen. Weshalb das Wäschewaschen ihr, als sie mit 14 Jahren alleine lebte, möglicherweise das Leben rettete, wie sie in den Randbezirken von New Orleans einmal mit einem Wohnmobil unter einem Tankstellendach feststeckte, wie sie ganz persönlich Abschied von ihrem Vater nahm, der diese Rolle niemals erfüllte, weshalb sie mit Cameron Diaz auf der Suche nach dem ultimativen Adrenalinkick Fallschirmspringen ging – all diese und noch viele weitere Geschichten und Erfahrungen sind in Wildflower enthalten. Ein buntes Bouquet von Geschichten einer faszinierenden Frau, Mutter und Persönlichkeit. »Eine reine Freude ... Wenn Sie Drew Barrymore bisher nur sympathisch fanden ... nach der Lektüre ihrer Essays werden Sie sie vergöttern.« - New York Times Book Review
