The billionaire's vinegar : the mystery of the world's most expensive bottle of wine by Benjamin Wallace( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the most expensive bottle of wine ever sold. In 1985, a 1787 bottle of Cha^teau Lafite Bordeaux--one of a cache unearthed in a bricked-up Paris cellar and supposedly owned by Thomas Jefferson--sold at auction for $156,000. The discoverer of the bottle was pop-band manager turned wine collector Hardy Rodenstock, who had a knack for finding extremely old and exquisite wines. But rumors soon arose. Why wouldn't Rodenstock reveal the exact location where it had been found? Was it part of a smuggled Nazi hoard? Or did his reticence conceal an even darker secret? Author Wallace also offers a history of wine, complete with vivid accounts of subterranean European laboratories where old vintages are dated and of Jefferson's colorful, wine-soaked days in France. This tale of what could be the most elaborate con since the Hitler diaries is also the debut of a new voice in narrative non-fiction.--From publisher description

Do you love Philadelphia? Do you love good writing? Well, this is the book for you. It's about the people of Philadelphia--the good, the fine, and the imperfect.

And the would-be moguls--Mark Yagalla, world-class embezzler. And so many more, including--writing in their own words--Terry Gross, Patti LaBelle, W.

The billionaire's vinegar : the mystery of the world's most expensive bottle of wine by Benjamin Wallace( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 5, 1985, the world's most expensive bottle of wine, a 1787 Chateau Lafite, sold at auction at Christie's in London for $156,000. The bottle was believed to have been ordered but never received by Thomas Jefferson for his personal collection, and had been discovered with several other bottles in a bricked up cellar in Paris two centuries later. The winning bidders, the Forbes family, immediately displayed their prize under a spotlight at their Fifth Avenue galleries building, where the bright light shriveled the cork, which fell into the bottle, and the wine quickly turned into the world's most expensive bottle of vinegar. The billionaire's vinegar is the story of this bottle (and other bottles from the same cache) and the cast of characters whose lives it touched: Thomas Jefferson, in his day America's most prominent oenophile; the Forbes family; German rock promoter-turned-über collector Hardy Rodenstock; Wine spectator and Cigar aficionado publisher Marvin Shanken; old-school British auctioneer Michael Broadbent; and others. It also investigates--and answers--the questions surrounding the bottles' apparent disappearance and rediscovery, the longest-running mystery in the modern wine world
Post-apocalyptic nomadic warriors by Benjamin Wallace( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The post-apocalyptic world isn't that bad. Sure, there are mutants. But, for the people of New Hope, daily life isn't so much a struggle of finding food or medicine as it is trying to find a new shortstop for their kickball team. This makes it difficult for a post-apocalyptic warrior to find work. Thankfully, an army full of killers is making its way to the peaceful town and plans to raze it to the ground. Only a fully trained post-apocalyptic-nomadic warrior can stop them

Do these three men have what it takes to survive when the dead rise from their graves? They're separated from their families. They're forced to work together. They're kind of dumb. So probably not. It all begins on a Monday--the first installment in the Dumb White Husbands vs. Zombies mini-series.Part 1 of Dumb White Husbands vs. Zombies.Also available in the collected edition Dumb White Husbands vs. Zombies: The Zomnibus including the 6 stories Dumb White Husbands vs. Zombies: Monday - The Weekend
Dumb white husband vs. the grocery store by Benjamin Wallace( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John is a dumb white husband. That is to say that he loves and cares for his family, is successful in his career, popular around the neighborhood, can dress himself (often without injury) and is capable of reasonable thought. Demographically, however, he functions like a 4-year-old that can't quite master the intricacies of the potty.It isn't his fault. He studied hard and got a college degree. He works hard and earns a comfortable living. But, like all other dumb white husbands, he leads a dual life; competent member of society by day, helpless male by night, weekends and holidays.He has served for years as the nervous legal department-approved foil of commercials, TV and movies. And, for this service, we thank him. No one has ever cared to look inside the mind of the dumb white husband - probably for a fear of what we might find - but, if we took a minute to consider it, we may see that he's not as dumb as we all think. But, he probably is.In this adventure, Dumb White Husband goes to the grocery store.Also available in the collected edition The Big Book of Dumb White Husband
