(Book). Disclaimer: No U.S. Military Personnel were harmed during the making of these fictional reminiscences. No warrior is more forgotten than he who has been left behind by the war department. Most men who have never tasted combat beyond the occasional fistfight on poker night quickly learn to lay low and zip the lip when battlefield stories are unfurled by the Purple Hearters at the dinner table. Except, of course, for our man Jean Shepherd. Fearless in his uncombativeness, he manfully fought his dearth of frontline duty with the weapons he wielded unmatched by even the most decorated dogface: rapid-fire griping and explosive laughter. Jean Shepherd was, and remains, a pervasive part of American culture. His quirky individuality was portrayed for posterity by Jason Robards in the play and film, A Thousand Clowns , written by Shep's close pal, Herb Gardner. Jack Nicholson embodied a Shepherd-like late-night radio talker in The King of Marvin Gardens . While in Network , by Paddy Chayefsky (another of Shep's comic cohorts), the television newscaster beseeches his listeners to open their windows and yell, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore," an unmistakable echo of Shepherd's radio habit of "hurling an invective" like a hand grenade out into the nation's air waves. Shepherd was a spiritual father to Garrison Keillor, Daniel Pinkwater, Bill Harley, Paul Krassner and Joe Frank. Tens of thousands of rabid fans stayed up past their bedtime with transistor radios stashed under their pillows to follow Shep's always unpredictable, usually extemporaneous, verbal forays into current events, social mores, idle thoughts, stories about his childhood in northern Indiana ("I was this kid, see..."), his army days, and his idiosyncratic take on his world-wide travels. Shepherd once bamboozled an innocent public, and gullible publishing world, by promoting a non-existent book ( I, Libertine ) and author (Frederick R. Ewing), then co-writing it with sci-fi author Theodore Sturgeon. It sold in best-seller numbers. Shepherd wrote nearly two dozen stories for Playboy and even interviewed the Beatles for the magazine. He published several best-selling books of his stories and articles; he appeared at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, and in hundreds of jam-packed college auditoriums. Shep's Army is the first volume of new Shepherd tales to be published in a quarter century.

"Smiley-Man Chronicles" is the true story and reminiscences of Michael Mulholland, Tahni Jones, Eddy Boros, Kevin Donnelly, the Lefty Jones Band, Edwardo, Pancho Rosie, et al. Technically your author has been more of an archivist and editor than story-teller. He has also tried to hold the price down on this volume so that it will not cost you too much--either spiritually or financially. It reads easily in order, or out, and is about going to the moon, literally & figuratively. Though parts are fiction, the chronicles are largely non-fiction, and they are dedicated to both Nathan Harris, who gave your author everything, and Tahni Jones, who told his sister Georgi shortly before he died that he had been "playing life by ear." Reviews: "Essential reading...a tour de force!" --Stewart Allen, author "The Devil's Cup, In the Devil's Garden" "I couldn't have written a better book without dropping out of school...." --Saul Fisher, Ph.D. "Thank God for The Lefty Jones Band...long live the "Smiley-Man Chronicles.".." --Andy Malm, Drummer, Lefty Jones Band "This book is serious fun, thoughtful, and revolutionary." --Nina Feldman, President, Sweet Bella. "Totally original...ground-breaking." --Walter White, Bassist, Lefty Jones Band. "Unmarketable and brilliant." --Errol McDonald, Editor, Random House.

Known as “Broadway’s social conscience,” E. Y. Harburg (1896–1981) wrote the lyrics to the standards, “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?,” “April in Paris,” and “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” as well as all of the songs in The Wizard of Oz, including “Over the Rainbow.” Harburg always included a strong social and political component to his work, fighting racism, poverty, and war. Interweaving close to fifty interviews (most of them previously unpublished), over forty lyrics, and a number of Harburg’s poems, Harriet Hyman Alonso enables Harburg to talk about his life and work. He tells of his early childhood on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, his public school education, how the Great Depression opened the way to writing lyrics, and his work on Broadway and Hollywood, including his blacklisting during the McCarthy era. Finally, but most importantly, Harburg shares his commitment to human rights and the ways it affected his writing and his career path. Includes an appendix with Harburg’s key musicals, songs, and films.

""Except Education" describes what really happens inside of American public high schools. In these pages are the tales of the lawyers who advocate for students and threaten to sue any teacher who does not comply. There are also the lost autistic souls who are led from meeting to meeting by guilty parents; there are the young Americans who are chained by behavior contracts and doped up by prescription medicine and then ignored roundly by their parents. Fights, rapes, drugs, and stories of ordinary madness are countered by the frustration of educators stuck in terribly tedious, horribly political situations that sap their will to do one of the most noble things on the face of the earth: teach the young. After reading this book, parents will wonder what exactly is going on in their children s schools, and aspiring teachers may well think twice about their career choice.
