The life and opinions of Maf the dog, and of his friend Marilyn Monroe by Andrew O'Hagan( Book )

37 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This story] is about Marilyn Monroe- voiced by her dog, Mafia Honey, or "Maf," for short. Maf is, naturally, versed in the classics, and as he and his owner spend time with such notables as Natalie Wood, Frank Sinatra, and JFK, he offers erudite commentary, sometimes in dialogue with other dogs, on such subjects as interior decorating, celebrity, authenticity, religion, and death. The strangeness of the scenario becomes more sensible as the book goes on. Maf's riffs on the way people project their thoughts and feelings onto dogs suggest the way they view celebrities, and O'Hagan ornaments his wry humor with sparkling gems of prose.-Booklist review

"A brilliant essayist, [O'Hagan] constructs sentences that pierce like pinpricks." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review For more than two decades, Andrew O'Hagan has been publishing celebrated essays on both sides of the Atlantic. The Atlantic Ocean highlights the best of his clear-eyed, brilliant work, including his first published essay, a reminiscence of his working-class Scottish upbringing; an extraordinary piece about the lives of two soldiers, one English, one American, both of whom died in Iraq on May 2, 2005; and a piercing examination of the life of William Styron. O'Hagan's subjects range from the rise of the tabloids to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, from the trajectory of the Beatles to the impossibility of not fancying Marilyn Monroe.

The secret life by Andrew O'Hagan( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the award-winning author of The Illuminations, a significant and timely work of non-fiction by one of the most important writers of his generation. Julian Assange, a man who, five years ago, seemed to herald a new, enlightened form of democracy--until, that is, the apparent heroism of WikiLeaks became compromised by his hubris and paranoia. Satoshi Nakamoto, another man who radically reshaped the business of information and secrecy on a global scale. He is known as the elusive inventor of Bitcoin, but who is the real Satoshi--a lone wolf or a collective of individuals with the talent to reimagine the financial wheel? And Ronald Pinn, a man who does not exist at all, except in the furthest, darkest reaches of O'Hagan's internet use. Driven by an interest in the ease with which it is possible to create an identity in an online world, O'Hagan journeys into the dark web where everything--sex, drugs, guns--is for sale. The Secret Life is about these elusive individuals, written in three individual yet deeply connected essays. It is a dazzling book about the porousness between genius and madness, between fact and fiction. It is about nothing less than modern personality in the digital age."--
