Raymond Carver: An Oral Biography
Sam Halpert
0877455031
April 1995
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Though this oral biography confesses to being a "toast" to a "beloved man," it is an engrossing, touching, and insightful remembrance of Carver by his family, friends, and fellow writers. We see the devastating effects of Carver's long bout with alcoholism and the pitiful poverty in which he, his first wife, and two children lived. Carver emerges as a funny and lovable man, despite his occasional alcohol-induced abusiveness. He recovered from his alcoholism and wrote productively once again for several years before his early death from lung cancer in 1988. These reminiscences include many insights into the sources and literary qualities of his writings. This highly readable oral biography is an expanded and rearranged version of When We Talk About Raymond Carver (Gibbs Smith, 1991). It should be included in good...

Book Review
Dick Francis's legion of admirers can relax: his year off from writing since the 1998 publication of Field of Thirteen is over, and a new vigor has entered his style. Longtime readers will be happy to find the customary racetrack skullduggery, galvanized by some fascinating new elements.

The very opening of Second Wind signals something new, with Francis's protagonist, meteorologist Perry Stuart, fighting for his life as he flies through the eye of storm on Trox Island, a blighted place steeped in guano and harboring a nasty secret. "But now, as near dead as dammit, I tumbled like a rag-doll piece of flotsam in towering gale-driven seas that sucked unimaginable tons of water from the deeps ...."

When the reader encountered details of the racing world in Francis's earlier thrillers such as Whip Hand and Reflex, they...

Falling Up: How a Redneck Helped Invent Political Consulting (politics@media Series)
Raymond D. Strother
0807130605
April 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Strother was one of the first modern political consultants: he started driving Louisiana candidates and eventually specialized in precisely crafted radio and TV ads. His memoir is filled with wild and woolly stories in which bordello-owning sheriffs and country music bands are a regular fixture on the campaign trail. It also delves into the highly successful period in the early 1980s when a run of victorious Democratic senatorial campaigns culminated in Strother joining Gary Hart's frenetic, and doomed, 1984 presidential run. (There's also a suggestion that he might have prevented the Donna Rice incident.) He gave James Carville one of his first political jobs and crossed paths several times with Dick Morris, whose significance as a consultant he admits despite his conviction that the man represents "everything...
