From the time she appeared in National Velvet, the film that skyrocketed her to international fame at age twelve in 1944, until her death, Elizabeth Taylor's beauty, allure, and personal strength captivated the world. In a career that spanned more than sixty years, she brought her raw talent and magnetism to bear in now classic films such as Father of the Bride, Suddenly, Last Summer, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Giant, Cleopatra, and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. Off screen, she lived just as passionately. That intensity brought her enormous joy and pain—and notoriety, whether it was from her vast collections of extraordinary fine jewelry and art to her battles with addiction and ill heath, from her internationally recognized humanitarian efforts on behalf of AIDS to her scandalous love affairs and seven highly scrutinized marriages. This anthology reveals the candor and honesty with which the actress led her extraordinary life. Here are Elizabeth's first-person reflections on her childhood, career, love and marriages, motherhood, beauty, aging, extravagances, charity, and sense of self. Whether witty or poignant, these words are always demonstrative of her generous, unapologetic, and fiercely determined nature, reflecting the essence of a great star and legendary modern woman.

Named a Best Book of the Year by the Seattle Times and Kirkus Review The final novel from a great American storyteller. Donal Cameron is being raised by his grandmother, the cook at the legendary Double W ranch in Ivan Doig’s beloved Two Medicine Country of the Montana Rockies, a landscape that gives full rein to an eleven-year-old’s imagination. But when Gram has to have surgery for “female trouble” in the summer of 1951, all she can think to do is to ship Donal off to her sister in faraway Manitowoc, Wisconsin. There Donal is in for a rude surprise: Aunt Kate–bossy, opinionated, argumentative, and tyrannical—is nothing like her sister. She henpecks her good-natured husband, Herman the German, and Donal can’t seem to get on her good side either. After one contretemps too many, Kate packs him back to the authorities in Montana on the next Greyhound. But as it turns out, Donal isn’t traveling solo: Herman the German has decided to fly the coop with him. In the immortal American tradition, the pair light out for the territory together, meeting a classic Doigian ensemble of characters and having rollicking misadventures along the way. Charming, wise, and slyly funny, Last Bus to Wisdom is a last sweet gift from a writer whose books have bestowed untold pleasure on countless readers. From the Hardcover edition.

Over the past few thousand years, Fabio has come to hate his job. As Fate, he's in charge of assigning the fortunes and misfortunes that befall most of the human race - the 83 per cent who keep screwing things up. And with the steady rise in population since the first Neanderthal set himself on fire, he can't exactly take a vacation. Frustrated with his endless parade of drug addicts and career politicians, it doesn't help watching Destiny guide her people to Nobel Peace Prizes. To make matters worse, he has a five-hundred-year-old feud with Death, and his best friends are Sloth and Gluttony. And worst of all? He's just fallen in love with a human. Sara Griffen might be on Destiny's path, but Fabio keeps bumping into her - by accident at first, and then on purpose. Getting involved with her breaks Rule No. 1 - and about ten others - setting off some cosmic-sized repercussions that could strip him of his immortality...or lead to a fate worse than death.

There's something about a mother's hug and whispered words of wisdom that gives an indescribably warm feeling of comfort. In the tradition of The Book of Fathers' Wisdom comes The Book of Mothers' Wisdom. In this loving and memorable book, mothers throughout history give sage advice and encouragement to their children-and yours. From authors Jane Austen to Joyce Carol Oates, politicians Eleanor Roosevelt to Hillary Rodham Clinton, and socialites Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Princess Diana, this book is filled with mother wit on character, faith, happiness, and love -- messages that are timeless and meaningful. For example, Jane Austen gave these pearls of advice about marriage and motherhood: "Do not be in a hurry, depend upon it, the right man will come at last. You will meet somebody who will so completely attach to you that you will feel you never really loved before. And then, by not beginning the business of mothering quite so early in life, you will be young in constitution, spirits, figure and countenance". Gabriella Kerouac to her son Jack: "Whatever you do, I won't criticize your judgments; after all, your life's your own work". Here, through anecdotes and stories, mothers advise, instruct, admonish, and congratulate their children. They remind them -- in a way only a mother can -- that they have their unconditional love. The Book of Mothers' Wisdom contains advice from more than one hundred mothers, including Lucille Ball, Diana Ross, Abigail Adams, and the mothers of Thomas Edison, Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, and Mark Twain. The Book of Mothers' Wisdom offers a unique and cosy peek into the intimate and irreplaceable relationship between a mother and child.These maternal recommendations for successful living will surprise and delight all rea
