Summary "Takes readers inside the life mind of Frank Mankiewicz, a man who was essentially 20th century America incarnate. Born into Hollywood royalty, Frank's father and uncle were responsible for such classic films as Citizen Kane and All About Eve. Growing up in Beverly Hills, guests at the dinner table included F. Scott Fitzgerald and the Marx brothers. At age eighteen Frank joined the Army, seeing action at the Battle of the Bulge. Returning home, he began work for Robert Kennedy's campaign, becoming the Senator's press secretary and a personal friend of the family. During a long career in media and politics Frank helped give birth to National Public Radio and served as a director for the nascent Peace Corps. Such a long and interesting life gave rise to a myriad of opinions, and, before he passed away at 92, Frank was not afraid to share them. In this intriguing, insightful, and often humorous memoir, Frank recalls his favorite memories while sharing his opinions on everything from Zionism to smartphones. Like story-time with the nation's most interesting grandfather, he will make you laugh, make you cry, and probably embarrass you. He wouldn't have wanted it any other way"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary "Noah wants to go home. A seemingly easy request from most four year olds. But as Noah's single-mother, Janie, knows, nothing with Noah is ever easy. One day the pre-school office calls and says Janie needs to come in to talk about Noah, and no, not later, now - and life as she knows it stops. For Jerome Anderson, life as he knows it has stopped. A deadly diagnosis has made him realize he is approaching the end of his life. His first thought - I'm not finished yet. Once a shining young star in academia, a graduate of Yale and Harvard, a professor of psychology, he threw it all away because of an obsession. Anderson became the laughing stock of his peers, but he didn't care - something had to be going on beyond what anyone could see or comprehend. He spent his life searching for that something else. And with Noah, he thinks he's found it. Soon Noah, Janie and Anderson will find themselves knocking on the door of a mother whose son has been missing for eight years - and when that door opens, all of their questions will be answered. Sharon Guskin has written a captivating, thought-provoking novel that explores what we regret in the end of our lives and hope for in the beginning, and everything in between. In equal parts a mystery and a testament to the profound connection between a child and parent, THE FORGETTING TIME marks the debut of a major new talent"-- Provided by publisher.
