Alfred Jarry: The Man with the Axe

Nigey Lennon & Bill Griffith

Alfred Jarry: The Man with the Axe by Nigey Lennon & Bill GriffithAlfred Jarry (1873-1907) lived fast, died young, and refused to accept objective reality. He was a major influence on artistic movements such as Dada and Surrealism, and his nihilistic 1896 play, "Ubu Roi", is acknowledged as the turning point in modern drama. In "The Man with the Axe", author Nigey Lennon and illustrator/underground comix legend Bill Griffith take an appropriately surrealistic graphic approach to chronicling the absurd life of this seminal figure. As the first-ever non-academic biography of Jarry, "The Man with the Axe" has been legendary since its initial publication in 1984....

Being Frank: My Time With Frank Zappa

Nigey Lennon

Being Frank: My Time With Frank Zappa by Nigey LennonSince his untimely death from prostate cancer in 1993, the legend of iconoclastic musician Frank Zappa has continued to grow. The years following his passing have seen the publication of numerous books, both sacred and profane, which examine his life and work, but the best, and only, up-close-and-personal account of the man and his music remains the original: Nigey Lennon's Being Frank: My Time with Frank Zappa. Musician/author Lennon maintained a personal and professional relationship with Zappa during the period which is generally agreed to have been the composer's most creative, and she invests...

The Sagebrush Bohemian: Mark Twain's Wild Years

Nigey Lennon

The Sagebrush Bohemian: Mark Twain's Wild Years by Nigey LennonMost people, including literary biographers and other people who should know better, have a persistent image of Mark Twain as a dyspeptic geezer in a white suit, sourly regarding the world from a rocking chair on his New England porch. Not surprisingly, when Nigey Lennon's groundbreaking biography, "The Sagebrush Bohemian", originally presented its startlingly irreverent revelations about Twain's formative years, it aroused a firestorm of controversy. Previous Twain biographers had virtually ignored the pivotal period (1861-1869) during which Samuel Clemens migrated to the Western territory;...

Bread and Hyacinths: The Rise and Fall of Utopian Los Angeles

Lionel Rolfe & Nigey Lennon

Bread and Hyacinths: The Rise and Fall of Utopian Los Angeles by Lionel Rolfe & Nigey LennonThis fascinating account of Los Angeles' buried past tells the story of Job Harriman, a former minister turned union organizer and attorney, who in 1911 was narrowly defeated as mayor of Los Angeles running on the Socialist ticket. Behind his defeat lay an unthinkably brutal, stop-at-nothing campaign headed by Los Angeles' de facto political boss, General Harrison Gray Otis, publisher of the Los Angeles Times. Harriman's progressive mayoral campaign represented an epic battle for the future of Los Angeles against the bitterly reactionary forces of Otis and his backers. The authors amply demonstrate...
