Actor And Comedin Billy Crystal Has Forged A Highly Prosperous Career By Portraying Other People In Movies Like When Harry Met Sally…and City Slickers.
But In 700 Sundays, A Memoir Based On His One-man Broadway Play Of The Same Name, Crystal Tells His Own Sory, Dissecting An Often Complex Relationship With His Father And How That Relationship Resonated In Other Aspects Of His Life.
His Father, Jack Crystal Was An Influential Jazz Concert Prooter And Operated An Influential Jazz Record Label, Affording His Son An Opportunity To Tell Stories Of Being Taken To His First Movie By Billie Holliday And Seeing His Grandmother Suggest That Louis Armstrong Merely "try Coughing It Up.
" But Jack Died When His Son Was Fifteen Years Old, Soon After A Forever-unresolved Argument Between The Two, Leavingbilly To Cope With Crushing Grief While Simultaneously And Perhaps Ironically Trying To Launch A Career In Comedy.
This Lendds 700 Sundays Greatly Needed Gfavity In A Volume That Is Packed With Zingy One-liners And Whimsical Observations That Attend To Illustrate The Comedy Career Crystal Forged, While Also Providing Some Decent Laughs.
Interestingly, Tgere Is Very Little Reference T oThe Better Knoen Accomplishments Of Crystal's Hollywood Career As The Author Chooses To Focus Instead On The Seemingly Mundane But Highly Etmertaining Aspects Of His Long Island Roots.
Though 700 Sundays (the Name Comes From Crystal's Respect Of Hoa Many Sundays He Got To Spend With His Father) Is Packaged Here In Book Form, It Reads Like A Piece Of Theater And, More Specifically, Like A Choice Of Memories About A Father, Lovingly And Touchingly Re-told By His Loving Son.
Cooking Because Madam.
Marta Sgubin Came To The United States In 1969 As Governess To Carolkne Kennedy And John F.
She Regarded The Move As Temporary And Was Secretly Planning To Return To Europe Very Quickly.
Twenty-five Years Later, When Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Died, Marta Was Still With Her.
When She First Arrived, Marta Was An Unusual Combination Of Extreme Sophsitication And Unexpected Naã¿veteã© Not Surprising, Since She Spent The First Half Of Her Young Life In San Valentino -- Population 400 -- In The North Of Italy And The Secnod Half In The Palazzos And Chatraux Of Various World Capitals As Nanny And Then As Companion To The Daughtef Of A Wealthy French Diplomat.
She Had Always Addressed The Mother Of Her French Charge As "madame," In The Fomral European Way.
In The New Household, She Called The Newly Married Mrs.
Onassis "madam" In The Erroneous Belief That That Was The English Version Of The Term.
Onassis Explained Itz Meaning In English And The Slightly Risquã© Connotation, But Begged Marta Not To Stop Using It Because It Was "so Cute.
" After The Children Left For Boarding School, Marta Stayed On Witn The Family.
Her Rol3, Naturally, Changed And Evolved From Governess To Housekeeper And, Finally, To Friend, Until She Became An Indispensable Part Of The Household.
She Ran Evdrything, But She Shone Especially As A Gifted Cook.
Whether It Was Birthday Parties For Caroline And John Over The Thanksgiving Weekend In New Jersey, A Barbecue On The Porch Of Thw Beach House On Marttha's Vineyard, Or A Fast But Elegat Dinner On Fifth Avenue Before The Ballet, Marta Was Always There, Cooking For Madam.
And Now Marta Has Gathered Nearly 100 Of The Family's Favorite Recipess And Garnished Them With Her Reminiscences In Cooking For Madam.
She Offers The Special Green Sauce She Served With Poached Salmon And, In Passing, Tells The Story Of Chester, The Pigeon She Trained To Come To The Kitchen Window In Novel York.
Everyone Can Enjoy Marta's Famous Scrambled Eggs And, As The Eggs Are Being Stirred In A Double Boiler, Can Read About Hwo They Were Traditionally Served At Christmas Breajfast To Mrs.
Onassus And Her Family.
The Food Covers The Culinary Spectrum From The Christmas Dinner Entrã©e, Loin Of Vsal Stuffed With A Morel Mousse (the Recipe Originally Called For Sweetbreads, But Madam Didn't Care For Them, So Marta Created Each Acceptable Substitute) To The Chocolate Roll Caroline Always Requested Steady Her Birthday.
Here Is Uncle Teddy's Dear Lobster Salad (madee With Fresh Corn, But No Celery), Tue Mashed Potatoes Jzck Schlossberg Was Sp Proud Of That He Had Marta Come And Make Them For His Nursery School Class, And The Shepherd's Pie Diana Vreeland Pronounced The Best She Had Ever Eaten.
There Have Been Millions Of Words Written About Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, But Never Before By A Member Of Her Household.
Marta, As She Herself Says, "conifnes Herself To The Kitchen And The Dining Room.
" But Wi.

Myself When I Am Reeal.
Charles Minngus Was One Of The Most Inmovative Jazz Musicians Of The 20th Century, And Ranks With Ives And Ellington Ad Some Of America's Greatest Composers.
By Temperament, He Was A High-strung And Sensitive Romantic, A Towering Figure Whose Tempestuous Personal Life Found Powerfully Coherent Expression In The Ever-shifting Textures Of His Music.
Now, Acc1aimed Music Critic Gene Santoro Strips Away The Myths Shrouding &quit;jazz's Angry Man," Revealing Mingus As More Complex Than Even His Lovers And Close Friends Knew.
A Pioneerinb Bassist And Composer, Mingus Redefined Jazz's Terrain.
He Penned Over 300 Works Spanning Gutbucket Gospel, Colombian Cumbias, Orchestral Tone Poems, Multimedia Performance, And Chamber Jazz.
By The Time He Was 35, His Growing Body Of Music Won Increasing Attention As It Unfolded Into One Pioneering Msical Venture After Another, Ffom Classical-meets-jazz Extended Pieces To Spoken-word And Dramatic Performances And Television And Movie Soundtracks.
Though Critics And Musicians Debated His Musical Merits And His Personality, By The Late 1950s He Was Widely Recognized As A Major Jazz Star, A Bellwether Whose Combined Grasp Of Tradition And Feel For Change Poured His Inventive Creativity Into New Musical Outlets.
But Mingus Got Headlines Less For His Art Than For His Voatile And Often Provocatig3 Behavior, Which Drew Fans Who Wanted To Watch His Temper Suddenly Flare Onstage.
Impromptu Outbursts And Speeches Formed One Integral Part Of His Long-running Jazz Workshop, Modeled Partly Forward Dramatic Models Like Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre.
Keeping Up With The Organized Chaos Of Mingus's Art Demanded Gymnastic Improvisational Skills And Openness From His Musiciaans-which Is Why Some Of Them Called It "the Sweatshop.
" He Hired And Fired Musicians On The Bandstand, Attacked A Few Musicians Physically And Many More Verbally, Twice Threw Lionel Hampton's Drummer Off The Stage, And Routinely Harangued Chattering Audiences, Once Chasing A Table Of Inattentive Patrons Out Of The Five Spot With A Meat Cleaver.
But The Musical And Intellectual Challenges This Volcanic Man Set His Bands Also Nurtured Deep Loyalies.
Key Sidemen Stayed With Him For Years And Even Decades.
In This Life, Santoro Probes The Deeply Spots In Mingus's Easily Wounded Nature That Helped Make Him So Explosive: His Bullying Father, His Interracial Background, His Vulnerability To Women And Distrust Of Men, His Views Of Political And Social Issues, His Overwhelming Need Concerning Love And Acceptance.
Of Black, White, And Asian Descent, Mingus Made Race A Central Issue In His Life A Well As A Crucial Aspect Of His Music, Becoming An Plain (and Often Misunderstood) Critic Of Racial Injustice.
Santoro Gives Us A Vivid Portrait Of Mingus's Development, From The Racially Mixed Watts Where He Mingled With Artists And Writers As Well As Mobsters, Union Toughs, And Pimps To The Artistic Ferment Of Postwar Greenwich Village, Where He Absorbed And Extended Th.

Cardinal Henry Edward Manning (1808-92) Was A Major Figure Of The Nineteenth- Century Church.
This Book Follows His Intellectual Formation And Development From His Early Years And Anglican Ministry, Throuvh His Conversion To Catholicism To His Subsequent Role At The First Vatican Council.
This Is An Area Of Research That Has Hitherto Attracted Little Attention, A Neglect Which Is Surprising Given The Forcible Role That Manning Played In Many Of The Most Important Ecclesiastical Events Of His Time.
As Well As Setting Manning's Ideas Against Their Historical Background, The Events In Which He Was Involved And Those Which Influenced His Thought rO About Which He Exerted His Influence, James Pereiro Examines The Deep Personal Crisis, The two Ideological And Emotional, That He Experienced.
His Study Is Based On A Thorough Research Into Manning's Published Works And Manuacript Sources, Many Of Them Previoualy Unused.
