Behind the Oscar : the secret history of the Academy Awards by Anthony Holden( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simple hype? Is that really all there is behind the Oscar? Just a lot of propaganda, a frenzied ritual of self-promotion, a debasement of character and culture - and for what? A shiny statuette of a naked and featureless little man? Well, yes, maybe "hype" is a major part of the whole affair, but "simple" ...? Not by a long shot. Every year, on the last Monday in March, the reigning royalty of the movie business dress up in their finest feathers - sometimes literally - to

The wit in the dungeon : the remarkable life of Leigh Hunt--poet, revolutionary, and the last of the romantics by Anthony Holden( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Holden's narrative brings to life a pivotal moment in literary and political history--the world of England in the first half of the 19th century and the transition from the Romantics to the Victorians. A tirelessly prolific poet, essayist, editor, and critic, Hunt was the beating heart of a Romantic literary circle, an intimate of Keats and Shelley, Byron, Hazlitt, and Lamb. While campaigning fearlessly for political reform, he invented theater criticism as we know it and launched the careers of numerous poets whose names now overshadow his own. But he survived most of his youthful companions to become an elder statesman of Victorian literature, the friend and champion of Thackeray, Tennyson, Browning, and Dickens.--From publisher description

The man who wrote Mozart : the extraordinary life of Lorenzo Da Ponte by Anthony Holden( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In June 1805, a 56-year-old Italian immigrant disembarked in Philadelphia carrying only a violin. Before dying in New York 23 years later, in his ninetieth year, he would find New World respectability as a bookseller, then as the first Professor of Italian at Columbia University. For now, he set up shop as a grocer. There was always an air of mystery about the Abbé Lorenzo da Ponte. A scholarly poet, teacher and priest, with a devoted wife, he also had a reputation as a womanizer. Da Ponte charmed all he met, pioneering the place of Italian music in American life. The many lives of Lorenzo da Ponte - librettist of Mozart's three great operas, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni and Cosi Fan Tutte - begin in Venice, linger in Vienna and London and finish in New York, where today he lies buried in an unmarked grave in the world's largest cemetery. --book jacket

Big deal : a year as a professional poker player by Anthony Holden( Book )

This book is the story of a year spent by biographer Anthony Holden in the tough world of the professional poker player. He spent days and nights in the poker paradise of Las Vegas, in Malta and Morocco, even on board a ship, mingling with the legendary greats, sharpening his game, perfecting his repartee and learning a great deal about himself in the process. Poker, Holden insists, is not gambling. Like chess, it is a paradigm of life at its most intense; a gladiatorial contest that brings out the best as well as the worst in people
Bigger deal : a year inside the poker boom by Anthony Holden( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the years since Anthony Holden wrote his classic memoir Big Deal, the poker world has changed beyond recognition. When Holden played in the 1988 World Series of Poker there were 167 starters competing for a prize of $270,000. Since then, poker has become the world's largest single-competitor sport -- at the 2006 World Series there were almost 9,000 players and a first prize of $12 million, the richest in any sport. What happened in the years between Big Deal and Bigger Deal could never have been predicted: the Internet and television sparked a worldwide explosion in the popularity of poker, one that shows no sign of abating. Poker even has a respectable image these days, much to the disgust of die-hard players. Gone are the seedy rooms of the Horseshoe -- you can't even smoke at the table! -- and you're more likely to find yourself head to head with a film star than an ex-con in Las Vegas. With the future of online poker now legally endangered in the United States, Holden's vision of the poker boom comes at a critical moment in the game's history. In Bigger Deal, Holden is your guide to the world of the "new" poker -- to the players who dominate the modern game and the personalities behind the multibillion-dollar business it has become -- as he tries once again to win the world title. After all, as Telly Savalas once reminded Holden, a million dollars is never irrelevant. Not to mention twelve
