Back in print, "a wry and moving ... rare and minute accounting of growing up." (Time) Exiles is the story of two glamorous people'one, a beautiful aristocrat; the other, a self-made man, one of the most famous authors of the 1920s. In this slender volume, which was nominated for the 1970 National Book Award and helped reestablish the memoir as a genre, Michael J. Arlen evokes'with humor and honesty'his parents' seemingly charmed life in Hollywood and New York, his own childhood spent between homes and boarding schools, and the decline of a family full of love, joy, and pride in one another: in other words, a family as ordinary as it is unusual

Say goodbye to Sam by Michael J Arlen( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It will come as no surprise that Michael J. Arlen's first novel is at once romantic, disturbing, and original, an artistic achievement of impressive subtlety and force. A famous father and his estranged son meet for the first time in many years on the father's ranch in New Mexico. Tom Avery, a New York-based journalist on the edge of turning forty, thinks it's time for his new wife, Catherine, to meet his father, a celebrated Hollywood director Sam Avery. At seventy-two, Sam is still full of hell and larger than life--imperious, charming, catankerous, seductive, and dangerous. When the three come together, father and son seem doomed to increasing and potentially deadly conflict. At the same time, Tom's love for his pretty, somewhat unworldly wife is gradually transmuted by the threat of a strange, erotic triangle involving his father. The drama is enacted in a stark, real world--eagles soar in the moutnains, a rider is thrown in a treacherous race--but it is also a dream world, the kind that sometimes takes over when men and women are caught up in unexpected feelings. does Catherine, for instance, really abandon Tom for Sam' Or does Tom somehow "offer" his wife as a gift to his unapproachable father' And, for that matter, can Sam ever care about anyone but himself' Say Goodbye to Sam is concerned, in the end, with the dangers of love, and with the bravery required not only in loving someone but in being loved

Passage to Ararat by Michael J Arlen( Book )

25 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Passage to Ararat, which received the National Book Award in 1976, Michael J. Arlen goes beyond the portrait of his father, the famous Anglo-Armenian novelist of the 1920s, that he created in Exiles to try to discover what his father had tried to forget: Armenia and what it meant to be an Armenian, a descendant of a proud people whom conquerors had for centuries tried to exterminate. But perhaps most affectingly, Arlen tells a story as large as a whole people yet as personal as the uneasy bond between a father and a son, offering a masterful account of the affirmation and pain of kinship
The huntress : the adventures, escapades, and triumphs of Alicia Patterson : aviatrix, sportswoman, journalist, publisher by Alice Arlen( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fascinating biography of the maverick newspaperwoman and intrepid adventurer, which follows her exceptional exploits through the first half of the twentieth century, from her troublemaking days as the middle child of complicated parents to her successes as publisher of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Newsday. The authors take us into the lost WASP world of Alicia Patterson: her larger-than-life father--scion of the Patterson-Medill Chicago publishing dynasty--and her traditional mother, her childhood of foreign caretakers, travel, and boarding schools. Married off at twenty-three to a friend of her father's, Alicia spent little time at home during the brief marriage, instead earned a transport pilot's license (only the tenth woman in the country to do so), hunted big game in Indochina and India; and began to write for her father's newspaper The Daily News. Her second father-orchestrated marriage failed, but her last, to someone of her own choosing, Harry Guggenheim, resulted in the founding of Newsday in 1940. As she guided the paper through investigative exposés and international and liberal political coverage, her influence on the national stage grew along with the newspaper's reputation and circulation: winning a Pulitzer in 1954 and putting her on the cover of Time. Over the years admirers ranged from the Maharajah of Baroda to Adlai Stevenson. Here is the story of the spirited and formidable young woman who became a preeminent figure of the golden era of print newspapers.(With black-and-white illustrations throughout)From the Hardcover edition
