EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE A.V. CLUB • Includes new interviews! From the writer and director of Knocked Up and the producer of Freaks and Geeks comes a collection of intimate, hilarious conversations with the biggest names in comedy from the past thirty years—including Mel Brooks, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Roseanne Barr, Harold Ramis, Louis C.K., Chris Rock, and Lena Dunham. Before becoming one of the most successful filmmakers in Hollywood, Judd Apatow was the original comedy nerd. At fifteen, he took a job washing dishes in a local comedy club—just so he could watch endless stand-up for free. At sixteen, he was hosting a show for his local high school radio station in Syosset, Long Island—a show that consisted of Q&As with his comedy heroes, from Garry Shandling to Jerry Seinfeld. They talked about their careers, the science of a good joke, and their dreams of future glory (turns out, Shandling was interested in having his own TV show one day and Steve Allen had already invented everything). Thirty years later, Apatow is still that same comedy nerd—and he’s still interviewing funny people about why they do what they do. Sick in the Head gathers Apatow’s most memorable and revealing conversations into one hilarious, wide-ranging, and incredibly candid collection that spans not only his career but his entire adult life. Here are the comedy legends who inspired and shaped him, from Mel Brooks to Steve Martin. Here are the contemporaries he grew up with in Hollywood, from Spike Jonze to Sarah Silverman. And here, finally, are the brightest stars in comedy today, many of whom Apatow has been fortunate to work with, from Seth Rogen to Amy Schumer. And along the way, something kind of magical happens: What started as a lifetime’s worth of conversations about comedy becomes something else entirely. It becomes an exploration of creativity, ambition, neediness, generosity, spirituality, and the joy that comes from making people laugh. Loaded with the kind of back-of-the-club stories that comics tell one another when no one else is watching, this fascinating, personal (and borderline-obsessive) book is Judd Apatow’s gift to comedy nerds everywhere. Praise for Sick in the Head “I can’t stop reading it. . . . I don’t want this book to end.”—Jimmy Fallon “An essential for any comedy geek.”—Entertainment Weekly “Fascinating . . . a collection of interviews with many of the great figures of comedy in the latter half of the twentieth century.”—The Washington Post “Open this book anywhere, and you’re bound to find some interesting nugget from someone who has had you in stitches many, many times.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times “An amazing read, full of insights and connections both creative and interpersonal.”—The New Yorker “Fascinating and revelatory.”—Chicago Tribune “These are wonderful, expansive interviews—at times brutal, at times breathtaking—with artists whose wit, intelligence, gaze, and insights are all sharp enough to draw blood.”—Michael Chabon “Anyone even remotely interested in comedy or humanity should own this book. It is hilarious and informative and it contains insightful interviews with the greatest comics, comedians, and comediennes of our time. My representatives assure me I will appear in a future edition.”—Will Ferrell From the Trade Paperback edition.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Film producer Larry can't catch a break. The glory days of his career are long gone and he is now a bitter and tired man. The already problematic filming of his latest vampire film takes a turn for the worse when a real vampire and her deranged goons show up. Larry and his nephew Willy try to get to source of the problem, while evil hunchbacks, unkillable psychopaths and a army of zombies try to do them in. SICK IN THE HEAD is an absurd and twisted tribute to horrorfilms of yesteryear with a unhealthy dose of morbid jokes and unreal surrealism that will leave a permanent mark on your mind. Or two marks on your neck.

The Jewish Messiah
Author: Arnon Grunberg
Publisher: Penguin
Release Date: 2008-01-10
Pages: 480
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The new novel by the internationally acclaimed author- "a farce of nuclear proportions"(Vanity Fair) Arnon Grunberg is one of the most subtly outrageous provocateurs in world literature. The Jewish Messiah, which chronicles the evolution of one Xavier Radek from malcontent grandson of a former SS officer, to Jewish convert, to co- translator of Hitler's Mein Kampf into Yiddish, to Israeli politician and Israel's most unlikely prime minister, is his most outrageous work yet. Taking on the most well-guarded pieties and taboos of our age, The Jewish Messiah is both a great love story and a grotesque farce that forces a profound reckoning with the limits of human guilt, cruelty, and suffering. It is without question Arnon Grunberg's masterpiece.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This autobiographical account speaks out about domestic violence, parental alienation and mental illness. In particular it expresses the damage done when family members refuse to admit there is a problem, and instead turn on the person who raises the alarm. This is the true story of a disappearance triggered by bullying – and a Facebook campaign that helped bring a missing man home. It documents five years of harassment of a family – harassment that caused behavioural problems, physical illness and ultimately, mental breakdown. Sections written by the author's daughter (now 17) give a child's eye view of living with abuse. Comments by readers include: “Utterly amazed by this objective record of an horrendous experience... the writing drew me in, in an intimate and personal way, producing all sorts of raw emotions. Moved to tears by the chapter on abused wives.” “Could not stop reading. I am simply stunned. Speechless.” “... an inspiration. I've no doubt this book will be invaluable to many women out there who have suffered/are suffering in similar circumstances.” “I could see a movie being made out of this book... there is a great storyline: lovely English woman with two wonderful daughters marries into the Great American Dream, which slowly turns into a nightmare.”
