You and me, babe by Chuck Barris( Book )
25 editions published between 1974 and 2005 in 7 languages and held by 333 libraries worldwide
"You and Me, Babe" was the New York Times best-seller that launched Chuck Barris's career as a top-selling author. But unlike his later books (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Bad Grass Never Dies), "You and Me, Babe" is the irresistible combination of a truly affecting love story motored by Barris's classic brand of unique humor. Set in 1960s New York City, the novel centers on Tommy, a blue-collar schemer, who sets out to marry Sammy, an opinionated but dysfunctional young heiress with enough smarts to stand up to his shenanigans, though not enough to see his true motives. Her parents, however, see all too clearly, and when Tommy and Sammy announce their intention to marry, the family disinherits their firebrand daughter. Not to worry: Tommy has fallen in love with Sammy in the meantime, and the couple's fortune and fame all on their own becomes the source for this winning, and ultimately moving, New York tale

The Wrecking Crew! ( visu )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Profiles the group of Los Angeles studio musicians known as the Wrecking Crew--featuring Tommy Tedesco, guitar, Hal Blaine, Earl Palmer, drums, Carol Kaye, Joe Osborne, bass--who played on many rock and pop hits during the sixties. Gifted, versatile, and possessing the knack for turning a simple tune into something memorable, the Wrecking Crew were the players who turned the Wall of Sound in Phil Spector's head into a reality, and helped Brian Wilson create the musical vision that would redefine California pop. The Wrecking Crew also backed up everyone from Sonny and Cher, the Mamas and the Papas and the Monkees to Herb Alpert, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra, but while they became legends in the music business, they were all but unknown to the millions of people who made their records some of the biggest hits of the day. Filmmaker Denny Tedesco--whose father Tommy was a member of the Wrecking Crew and perhaps the most recorded guitarist in history--brings the free-wheeling story of the most famous musicians you've never heard of to the screen. Bonus disc includes interviews with guitarists, various performing artists, drummers/percussionists, producers/arrangers, engineers, bassists, pianists, and saxophonists associated with the Wrecking Crew

Della : a memoir of my daughter by Chuck Barris( Book )
2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This surprisingly candid, often funny, and moving memoir is Chuck Barris's story about life with his only child. Born in 1962, Della was a lovable, adventurous charmer like her father. She had a carefree suburban childhood, while her father became an entertainment superstar. When Barris and his wife divorced, Della was shuttled between New York and California, then boarding school in Switzerland. Bored, lonely, and often depressed, she discovered drugs and petty crime, and her escapades soon became more dangerous. She was lost, yearning for attention and guidance, but her father felt helpless. When Della decided at age sixteen to move out on her own, Barris gave her a trust fund and let her go--a regret that he shares with readers here as he chronicles Della's descent into addiction and her death from overdose at 36. Filled with loving memories, this is a brave reflection on fatherhood and a tribute to innocence lost.--From publisher description
