Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks( visu )
26 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 1,991 libraries worldwide
Never give a saga an even break! Blazing Saddles is an iconoclastic, not-politically-correct parody; one of the 1970s most successful and popular films. Every clichéd element from every Western ever made is turned upside down and inside out, while retaining all the familiar caricatures--eh, characters--of the genre: a dance-hall girl, a gunslinger, a sheriff, and a town full of pure folk. Mel Brooks redefined film comedy and proved that even sophomoric, scatological humor could be used to ridicule prejudice, injustice, and apathy

A trip to the West Coast lands Jack LeVine in a tangled Hollywood murder webAfter nearly a decade of churning out hits, Warner Bros. screenwriter Walter Adrian wants a raise on his weekly $2,500 salary. He thinks a thousand dollars more is fair-but the studio's counteroffer is low, and dropping fast. Something is wrong, and he thinks it may have to do with communism. Though he insists he isn't a Red, Adrian has no way of proving it. He flees to New York to ask the advice of high school buddy Jack LeVine, private eye. LeVine is broke, and has no sympathy for his wealthy friend, but he agrees to fly West to investigate his old classmate's trouble. When he arrives, Adrian hangs dead from the gallows at the Western set on the Warners' backlot. Behind his friend's death LeVine finds a shadowy Cold War conspiracy, and a city far darker than anything Hollywood puts on screen

Searching for a chorus girl’s stag film, Jack LeVine stumbles on a sinister political plot Like all chorus girls, Kerry Lane yearns to get her name on the marquee. After years of high-kicking, she lands a bit part in a Broadway smash hit which should lead to better things. The only thing holding her back is her past: specifically a series of stag films from her days as a struggling wannabe film starlet. When a blackmailer demands a payoff to keep them out of the public eye, Kerry comes to Jack LeVine. Stocky, sweaty, and bald, LeVine is a Jewish private detective who makes a living by being polite. But underneath his smile lies a bulldog. Lured by long legs and a roll of crisp twenties, LeVine takes Kerry’s case. But before he can speak to the blackmailer, the crook turns up dead. As LeVine hunts for Kerry’s pictures, he finds that the heart of this case is even uglier than greed, lust, or murder. It’s politics

Sleepless Nights is the first major novel by Andrew Bergman - screenwriter, director, and a talented and powerful new voice in contemporary fiction. Sleepless Nights is a novel about a Jewish family, the parents of which have survived the Holocaust, and the dark currents of incest among them. As in Nabokov's Lolita, there is in Andrew Bergman's novel an underlying hunger for love and acceptance that speaks not only for this family, whose nights are too often sleepless, but perhaps for many so-called normal families as well. And, remarkably, at the end, there is the promise of nights free of past demons and open to a future never dreamed of
