À la cart : the secret lives of grocery shoppers by Hillary Carlip( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
Taking her clues from the items listed, the types of paper written on, the handwriting, and even misspellings ("Aunt Spray"), Hillary saw that each list-at once mundane and personal-offered an intimate peek into a complete stranger's life. She picked twenty-six lists and imagined who the shoppers might be. She next transformed herself into all twenty-six people, one by one, literally stepping into each character-all ages, genders, and ethnicities-with hair, make-up, outfits, and one Fu Manchu. Photographer Barbara Green then captured unforgettable images of Hillary portraying these shoppers at their neighborhood markets. Hillary came to love these characters, so her accompanying stories for each are as poignant and hilarious as the photographs. She brings to life richly imagined inner worlds, including one for macho Woody, a self-described "Lady's Man with NO BANKRUPTCIES ready to meet just one Special Lady with NO KIDS." After getting to know these grocery shoppers through Miss Carlip's dedicated voyeurism, going to the market will never be the same

When actress Annabelle Gurwitch was fired from a play by Woody Allen, she wondered how she would cope with being fired by a cultural icon. Turning to friends in show business, she was assured she was not alone. Once the subject had been broached, everyone she knew, from her rabbi, to her gynecologist, had stories of getting the boot. This set her off on a journey to answer the question: was being fired going to be the best thing, or worst thing, that had happened in her working life?

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
