A Paler Shade of Red: Memoirs of a Radical

A Paler Shade of Red: Memoirs of a Radical by W. E. Gutman

An epic work of remarkable scope, vigor and passion, W. E. Gutman's latest book is acerbic, iconoclastic and disquieting. In this memoir, he chronicles his life with eloquent, engaging prose that will resonate with readers long after they turn the last page. The palpable sense of wonder and discovery peppered with dark humor and great humanity, is reminiscent of Nabokov's Speak Memory and Proust's Remembrance of Things Past. This honest, often self-critical account of the author's ups and downs as a wanderer and journalist makes A Paler Shade of Red great literature.

Am I Getting Paid for This? Memoir of A Career Girl

Am I Getting Paid for This? Memoir of A Career Girl by Betty RollinWhen Betty Rollin graduated from college in the late 1950s, she couldn't find a husband and she didn't want to be a secretary. So, in the days before women's liberation, she started a career—or, as she puts it, “fell into—then groped my way in and out of—three careers."

Am I Getting Paid For This? is a love story about work by the author of First, You Cry. It is the part funny, part not-so-funny story of her three careers—first acting, then writing, then television news broadcasting at NBC—and what work itself came to mean to Betty Rollin.
