Most widely held works by Andrew Bergman
Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks( visu )
46 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 2,118 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

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

Jack LeVine trilogy by Andrew Bergman( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Three devilishly witty and thrilling noir mysteries Stocky, sweaty, and bald, LeVine is a Jewish private detective who makes a living by being polite. But underneath his smile lies a bulldog. In The Big Kiss-off of 1944, fledgling actress Kerry Lane comes to Jack LeVine when a blackmailer demands a payoff to keep a series of stag films from her past out of the public eye. Lured by long legs and a roll of crisp twenties, LeVine takes Kerry & rsquo;s case. But before he can speak to the blackmailer, the crook turns up dead. As LeVine hunts for Kerry & rsquo;s old films, he finds that the heart of this case is even uglier than greed, lust, or murder. It & rsquo;s politics. In Hollywood and LeVine, screenwriter Walter Adrian seeks the advice of high school buddy Jack LeVine. Studio execs suspect that Adrian is a Communist, and they & rsquo;re lowballing his salary as a result. Though he insists he isn & rsquo;t a Red, Adrian has no way of proving it. LeVine is broke, and has no sympathy for his wealthy friend, but he agrees to fly west to investigate his old classmate & rsquo;s trouble. When he arrives, Adrian hangs dead from the gallows at the Western set on the Warners & rsquo; backlot. Behind his friend & rsquo;s death, LeVine finds a shadowy Cold War conspiracy, and a city far darker than anything Hollywood puts on screen. In Tender Is LeVine, Jack LeVine is just emerging from a vicious funk after the 1948 death of his father. His first client is a German violinist, who visits LeVine out of concern for his maestro, Toscanini, the famous conductor of the NBC Symphony Orchestra. The maestro & rsquo;s memory is slipping, his conducting style has changed, and his eyesight is suddenly vastly improved. The violinist suspects that the conductor has disappeared and been replaced by a double. It & rsquo;s an outlandish suspicion, but LeVine takes the case. After all, somebody has to pay for his new office. Soon enough, LeVine finds out that organized crime is playing the tune
