Bracketed by the catastrophes of the Great War and the Wall Street Crash, 1920s America was a place of drama, tension and hedonism. It glittered and seduced: jazz, flappers, wild all-night parties, the birth of Hollywood, and a glamorous gangster-led crime scene flourishing under prohibition. But the period was also punctuated by momentous events - the political show trials of Sacco and Vanzetti; the huge Ku Klux Klan march down Washington DC's Pennsylvania Avenue - and it produced a splendid array of writers, musicians and film stars, from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Bessie Smith and Charlie Chaplin.

In "Anything Goes!", King will take a long and in-depth look at how our America -- through the prism of the electronic and print media -- has gotten to the point where it is today. Bipartisan politics, bimbo eruptions, grandstanding in Congress, backstabbing tactics -- and more -- it's the stuff of our daily headlines, whether we like it or not. In sum, expect Larry King at his best -- with inside political stories and anecdotes never before reported anywhere.

Anything Goes traces the life and career of John Barrowman, from his Glaswegian childhood and American adolescence to his first big break starring alongside Elaine Paige in Anything Goes.

Since the beginning, every age has produced apologists who defend and define the Christian faith against current ideas and trends that threaten it. Today’s defenses come while congregations are dwindling, God is removed from schools, and those still looking for answers to faith questions are being labeled with words that are no longer accurate as soon as they exist—the seekers, the Nones, the spiritual but not religious, the neither spiritual nor religious. While America believes we live in a post-Christian world, a world where anything goes, Leslie Williams explores why Jesus Christ is still the answer for a culture that outlaws public prayer, lives in the fast food lane, and tweets and twitters to communicate. In a lively, personal, and humorous style, Williams shares experiences and debunks criticisms in search of a clear explanation of why we believe what we believe. Along the way, she invites you to disagree with ideas, to counter the rhetoric, to refute the conclusions—but to wrestle with the questions and experiences, enter your own journey, and discover for yourself why being Christian still makes sense.

Anything Goes is an unusual and a hilarious collection of short stories by the author Martin Dec Haynes F.R.C.S. who is also a poet, a surgeon, golfer, philatelist and humorist. Because of the author’s vast working experience lots of his stories have a medical theme, but you can rest assured that, coming from Haynes, they are not run-of-the-mill, nay rather they are extremely esoteric and virtually beyond belief. Near the end of the book the writing style takes a detour and a few yarns are narrated as if by idiot types who misspell words, or some of the words are written as they are pronounced, adding greatly to the farcical effect. The last story is about a young man who leaves his wife behind in The Islands, and goes to London to study medicine successfully; then he divorces his island-wife from a distance and takes a spanking new English wife. He is now about to return to his native island but his grandfather is waiting at the airport with a shotgun to blow out his brains. Fortunately, other family members are able to avert the disaster. All in all the collection is a riproaring read.
