Sleeping with Famous Men: Memories of an Unconventional Love Life

Sleeping with Famous Men: Memories of an Unconventional Love Life by Elizabeth Kaye

"It never hurts to meet a sexy man," Elizabeth Kaye's editor once told her.

"It always hurts to meet a sexy man," she said.

With more than forty years of passionate, wisdom-making love affairs behind her, Kaye knew what she was talking about.

In "Sleeping with Famous Men", she has written an elegant, rueful and astonishingly frank account of her search for comfort and love and, finally, for meaning and peace. In the tradition of such masters as Marguerite Duras and Colette, Kaye comes to terms with her turbulent romantic past.

Her position as an esteemed profile writer for such publications as Esquire,...

REPORTER: Covering Civil Rights...And Wrongs in Dixie

REPORTER: Covering Civil Rights...And Wrongs in Dixie by Alvin BennWhen a United Press International executive asked Al Benn where he wanted to begin his journalism career, he unhesitatingly replied: "Where the action is." Little did he know at the time that he'd wind up reporting on America's civil rights movement in Birmingham, Alabama which was known as BOMBingham in the 1960s. Benn had no experience as a reporter in 1964, but he quickly learned by following and watching those who did. One night, he might be in a pasture covering a Ku Klux Klan rally where grand dragons and imperial wizards in white sheets delivered hate-filled speeches under the glow of...

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.

Newsweek was Martyn's brainchild, brought to life through his own perseverance and ingenuity.
