Novelist (Going Away) Sigal was a Hollywood talent agent and secret communist in the blacklist-plagued 1950s. An outrageously entertaining, naming-names memoir (with a ration of b.s. too...sweetheart, whaddya expect, he's an agent!), What Makes Sammy Run meets L.A. Confidential. The cover should be a lot more lurid!

This probable masterpiece in the flavorful oeuvre of the great Joe R, joins LITTLE BIG MAN, TRUE GRIT and Cormac McCarthy's border trilogy in being unique and entertaining literature set in the Old West but above and outside the Western genre.

I only knew (or cared,really) of Jonathan Swift as the author of Gulliver's Travels - but John Stubbs work was recommended to me as a sterling example of the biographer's art. I found it a most pleasurable reading experience and an excellent life study.

Astonishing, history-making jaw-dropper answers many curious questions about the 3rd Reich - for instance, how do you stop a blitzkrieg wherein the attacking army (including Rommel) doesn't sleep for 5 days straight and thinks itself invincible?
