No dj, minimal wear to boards with sticker mark on upper front. Both of these accounts of Hudson's life and tragic death from AIDS show him as a simple, fun-loving man with a talent for friend, who inspired love and loyalty. The authors' task was made more difficult by Hudson's lifelong habit of deviousness and embellishment, so that no story was told the same way twice. Davidson was chosen to write the "authorized" biography and given entree to his closest friends and lovers. She spent time with Hudson during the last four weeks of his life, although he was too ill to add much to the book. Her interviews with several of Hudson's lovers are full of graphic quotes, which often tell more than the reader may want to know about Hudson's love life. For the titillating bits of gossip, this is the readers will want. Journalists Oppenheimer and Vitek have written a coherent, moving account of Hudson's life with more emphasis on his film work and professional relation than personal relation, though these are by no means neglected. They delve into Hudson's fatherless background and psyche, looking for answers to his homosexuality, and make a strong case for Hudson as a boy who never grew up emotionally. They interview, mostly, a different set of friends and co-workers, so this is full of other anecdotes, many very amusing. With either book, readers may be shocked by Hudson's lifestyle; still, they will like and respect Hudson, and won't be dry-eyed. Marcia L. Perry, M.L.S., Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield, Mass. 1986.

ReviewIn this personal memoir of faith Jimmy Carter tells how his religious convictions have always led him down the demanding yet rewarding path of service to others. With honesty and economy of words, he details his own struggles and doubts with faith, family, and career. As he tells the stories of his political travails, his marital squabbles, his frustration with the takeover of the Southern Baptist Church by narrow fundamentalists, and his recent diplomatic feats, the reader sees how he has striven (sometimes belatedly) to take each step with faith in God as well as with a pragmatic, humanitarian zeal. Carter's accomplishments on local, national, and international scales are an inspiration to everyone who agrees that religious belief is a call to love all people and to aid those in need. From In this rich and very intimate spiritual autobiography, the former president shares his living Christian faith. Carter's deep faith is rooted in his family and community, and he traces the growth and development of his faith through his career in the Navy and various political offices, and through his work with Habitat for Humanity (which builds housing for poor Americans) and the Carter Center (an international peacemaking organization). Carter also discusses the impact that Soren Kierkegaard and Reinhold Niebuhr have had on his life. With engaging humor and self-effacement, Carter shares his personal stories of the lessons of faith he has learned as a son, husband and father. In addition, he shares his sense of justice and the ways his faith has affected his actions and personal lifestyle. Carter's is an enjoyable look into the life of a man engaged in living out his faith in the public eye. 1996. First Edition Stated. Hardcover. Good++., Crown, 1996, Betterway Books.

GOOD., The Portable Sherwood Anderson, by Sherwood Anderson, Published by Penguin Books, Middlesex, England 1979, ISBN#: 0140150765, Soft bound, Excellent+ condition (Light cover wear at corners and along edges of spine). This outstanding book contains most of the works by Sherwood Anderson.Sherwood Anderson (1876-1941) was a writer whose prose style, derived from everyday speech, influenced American short story writing between World Wars I and II. Anderson made his name as a leading naturalistic writer with his masterwork, WINESBURG, OHIO (1919), a picture of life in a typical small Midwestern town, as seen through the eyes of its inhabitants. Sherwood Anderson was born in Camden, Ohio. His parents led a transient life, moving from one place to another searching for work. Anderson attended school only intermittently, while helping to support his family by working as a newsboy, housepainter, stock handler, and stable groom. At the age of 17 he moved to Chicago where he worked as a warehouse laborer and attended business classes at night. During the Spanish-American war Anderson fought in Cuba and returned after the war to Ohio, for a final year of schooling at Wittenberg College, Springfield. For the next few years Anderson moved restlessly around Ohio. His life calmed down for some time with marriage and with work as a paint manufacturer. After suffering an emotional crisis - more or less orchestrated by Anderson himself - because of the conflicting demands of his family, business and creative life, he left his wife, 'bourgeois lifestyle', and moved to Chicago. There he took again a job in advertising and joined the so-called Chicago Group, which included such writers as Theodore Dreiser and Carl Sandburg. Anderson's two first novels were WINDY MCPHERSON'S SON (1916) and MARCHING MEN (1917), both containing the psychological themes of inner lives of Midwestern villages, the pursuit of success and disillusionment. His third novel, Winesburg, Ohio (this is completely included in this book), was "half individual tales, half long novel form", as the author himself described it. It consisted of twenty-three thematically related sketches and stories. Written in a simple, realistic language illuminated by a muted lyricism, Anderson dramatized crucial episodes in the lives of his characters. The narrative is united by the appearance of George Willard, a young reporter, who is in revolt against the narrowness of the small-town life and who acts as a counterpoint to the other people of the town. The individual tales of Winesburg, Ohio, and Anderson's other collections of short stories, THE TRIUMPS OF THE EGG (1921), HORSES AND MEN (1932), and DEATH IN THE WOODS (1933), directed the American short story away from the neatly plotted tales of O. Henry and his imitators. These stories are characterized by a casual development, complexity of motivation, and an interest in psychological process. In 1921 Anderson received the first Dial Award for his contribution to American literature. He traveled widely in Europe - in Paris he met Gertrude Stein, whose work he much admired. After he returned back to the United States, he settled in New Orleans, where he wrote, among others, the novel DARK LAUGHTER (1925), which became a bestseller. In the story the disillusioned protagonist travels down the Mississippi imagining the kind of book Mark Twain might now write. From New Orleans Anderson moved to New York for some time, and from there finally to Marion, Virginia, where he built a country house, and worked as a farmer and journalist. In 1927 he bought both of Marion's weekly newspapers, one Republican, one Democrat, and edited them for two years. Commissioned by Today magazine, Anderson studied the labor conditions during the Depression and collected his articles in PUZZLED AMERICA (1935). Anderson's newspaper pieces were collected in HELLO TOWNS (1929), RETURN TO WINESBURG (1967) and THE BUCK FEVER PAPERS (1971). Anderson's best works and his continual search for a style appropriate to his subjects provided an example for almost every important American writer of the next generation. He also encouraged William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway in their writing aspirations. Anderson died in Colób, Panama, on an unofficial good-will tour, on March 8, in 1941. After his death, Anderson's reputation soon declined, but in the 1970s, scholars and critics found a new interest in his work.During his lifetime Anderson wrote two autobiographical works, A STORY TELLER'S STORY (1924) and semifictional TAR: A MIDWEST CHILDHOOD (1926). His MEMOIRS (1942) and LETTERS (1953) were published posthumously, as the more definitive THE MEMOIRS OF SHERWOOD ANDERSON (1969).The book is approximately 4 3/8 X 7 1/8 inches in size and contains 497 pages. The cover price is $5.95. For comparison, another copy of the book is currently offered on the Internet at Harvest Books for $7.70.
