Dear poppa : the World War II Berman family letters ( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
David, Betsy, and Sammy Berman were nine, six, and four years old in May 1943 when the U.S. Army sent their father, Dr. Reuben Berman, to Europe. Over the next two and a half years, the children regularly gathered around their mother, Isabel Berman, in their Minneapolis home while she typed exactly what they wanted to say to their father. This collection of more than 340 letters, selected from more than a thousand exchanged by the Berman family via V-mail, captures the anxiety and loss that children experienced when their fathers left for war

Cinema spec : tales of Hollywood and fantasy ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cinema spec : tales of Hollywood and fantasy views moving pictures in all their forms, real and imaginary, from shadow plays to classic films, from videocassettes to animated tattoos. 32 authors have contributed flash fiction, short stories, and poetry to the anthology, transporting us back to a time when flames flickered and paintings waltzed on cave walls, and forward to possible futures when the heavens themselves might serve as vidscreens. Along the way, we make multiple stops in Hollywood, the one we know and the one that could never exist, from 30s noir to extraterrestrial infiltration, from a magical 'gangland' to destruction after 'the big one.' Come join us in the dark"--P. [4] of cover

"Spirituous consolation" : Alcott's jokes on drinking and religion by Ruth Berman ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second book edition of Louisa May Alcott's Hospital Sketches eliminated jokes about drinking and religion. Although these were small changes, the edgy theme of drinking and religion as topics that could and sometimes should be taken lightly (even by a writer who also considered both topics as serious) interested Alcott throughout her career. Jokes on drinking and religion, although not a major element in any one of Alcott's stories (and not present at all in Little Women, published the year before the reprint of Hospital Sketches and written while negotiations for the reprint were going on), were recurrent in her work generally and added up to a substantial element in her humorous attacks on pomposity
