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

34 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,204 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

In a small Scottish parish, an English priest is stalked by the fear of scandal, class hatred and lost ideals.

As he looks back to his childhood, and to Oxford in the fever of student revolt, Father David begins to reconsider the central events of his life, and to see what may have happened to the political hopes of his generation. Meanwhile, religious warfare breaks out on his doorstep
Die Familie Schneider by Gregor Schneider( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his first major project in the UK, German artist Gregor Schneider constructed a remarkable new work, bringing his long-standing interest in repression, reproduction and repetition to a very ordinary street in London's East End. Die Familie Schneider took place in neighbouring, identical houses - 14 and 16 Walden Street. The houses were open by appointment only and visitors - always two at a time - collected the front door keys from a small office on the same street. One visitor entered 14 Walden Street alone, whilst the other entered the neighbouring house. After a period of ten minutes, the visitors emerged, exchanged keys and entered the second house. At no time was there ever more than one visitor in each house. It is not easy to describe the heightening of sensation and the existential anxiety which many visitors felt as they turned a key in one of the nondescript doors and crossed the threshold from the street to the inside, making their way through the small kitchen and living room, up to the claustrophobic bathroom and bedroom with no windows on the first floor, and down to the dark spaces of the basement. Each house would evoke conflicting feelings of attraction and repulsion, of wanting to go further in, and wanting to immediately get out. In each was an identical woman, perpetually washing the same dishes; in each was a child, or a child-like person - wrapped placidly within a plastic bag; and in each was a man in a shower, engaged in a stark and lonely act of masturbation. An apprehensive setting encased it all, elusively disturbing, almost mimicking a familiar scene of lower middle class domesticity - but at the same time not quite right, not right at all. Amongst the visitors who made their way through the intensely claustrophobic rooms were the writers Andrew O'Hagan and Colm Tóibín. In the publication 'Gregor Schneider: Die Familie Schneider', their writings, presented alongside an extended series of Schneider's photographs, attest to the disturbing experience of these dark double houses."

Conversations with Brando by Lawrence Grobel( Book )

In the November 9, 1957 issue of The New Yorker, Truman Capote published a controversial profile of Marlon Brando called "The Duke in His Domain." This revealing essay turned out to be one of the most intimate interviews ever granted by the reclusive actor. Capote, the consummate observer, dug into the psyche of the actor who had sky-rocketed to fame in the late 1940s and who, even today, remains an enigma to audiences around the world. This revealing interview is gloriously illuminated with 87 photographs in both duotone and color, spanning the entire career of Brando from A Streetcar Named Desire to Don Juan DeMarco. Here is Brando in the roles he claimed as his own in The Wild One, Viva Zapata, Julius Caesar, On the Waterfront, Sayonara, Mutiny on the Bounty, The Godfather, Last Tango in Paris and many others
