41 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 1,062 libraries worldwide
"No other twentieth-century artist in or out of film so captivated the world or spent so much energy trying to hide from it. To bring her out of hiding, Barry Paris draws on a wealth of hitherto unavailable material - ranging from Garbo's drama school notebooks and her unpublished letters to an astonishing set of a hundred taped conversations, recorded during her later years in New York, as well as interviews with her surviving friends and family in Sweden and America." "Paris's biography supplants the legend of Garbo the "enigma" with a revelation of the real woman, whose grip on our imagination remains as powerful today as it was almost seventy years ago when she dazzled the world in Flesh and the Devil."--Jacket

Stella Adler on Ibsen, Strindberg, and Chekhov by Stella Adler( Book )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 663 libraries worldwide
Stella Adler examines the role of the actor and brings to life the plays from which all modern theater derives: Ibsen's Hedda Gabler, The Master Builder, An Enemy of the People, and A Doll's House; Strindberg's Miss Julie and The Father; Chekhov's The Seagull, Uncle Vanya, The Cherry Orchard, and Three Sisters. Adler discusses the ideas behind these plays and explores the world of the playwrights and the history - both familial and cultural - that informed their work. She illumines not only the dramatic essence of each play but its subtext as well, continually asking questions that deepen one's understanding of the work and of the human spirit
Song of Haiti : the lives of Dr. Larimer and Gwen Mellon at Albert Schweitzer Hospital of Deschapelles by Barry Paris( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 328 libraries worldwide
"An inspiring account by an acclaimed biographer of the lives of Larimer and Gwendolyn Mellon, who used their initiative and their wealth to build the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in the Artibonite Valley of Haiti, a place where life expectancy was once the lowest in the hemisphere. Larimer Mellon was the youngest son of Paul Mellon, renowned Pittsburgh financier, and seemed destined for a life of high finance and high society. Instead, he went to med-school and, upon graduating, moved with his wife Gwen to Haiti, the poorest country in the hemisphere. In one of the most isolated and impoverished areas of the country they built a hospital, and for the rest of his life Larry Mellon served as a physician there. To this day, Gwen Mellon remains at the hospital and in Haiti. Song of Haiti is a beautifully written look at the passion that drove this couple, and that inspired them to leave behind a world of almost unfathomable wealth and luxury and devote their lives to the poorest of the poor in a country far from home."--Provided by publisher
