Author Hale, Benjamin.
Edition: First Simon & Schuster hardcover edition.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary "The smart, witty collection from the prize-winning and bestselling author of The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore, which The New York Times Book Review called "an absolute pleasure" explores the dark secrets under the surface of contemporary American lives. As he brilliantly accomplished in The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore, Benjamin Hale's The Fat Artist and Other Stories holds a mirror to the world, pairing absurdity with philosophical musings on the human condition to expose the power of the secret self. From a man's illicit tryst cut short by his estranged son's homecoming, a prostitute dominatrix about to be caught with a dead US congressman, to a performance artist whose grotesque weight gain becomes an art world phenomenon, Hale's deliberate prose, dark humor, and unforgettable characters explore the secrets beneath the surface of contemporary American lives. In The Fat Artist and Other Stories, Hale openly embraces the grotesque side of human nature and the unnerving intersection between life and death, art and ridicule, consumption and creation"-- Provided by publisher.

Format: Books
Summary "From a personal obsession with film, to an unorthodox mentorship with the legendary Pauline Kael, to establishing himself with the upstart Entertainment Weekly, Movie Freak is the memoir by veteran film critic Owen Gleiberman that will speak to anyone whose life has been changed by a great film. What molds a critic? Perhaps it takes parents willing to buy nine-year-old Gleiberman drive-in tickets for Rosemary's Baby. Like millions of us, Gleiberman loves movies, and in this frank and funny memoir he not only reveals the details of how he became a critic but attempts to show why we find cinema so defining as a society. As one of the premiere tastemakers for more than three decades, Gleiberman, a self-confessed movie freak, explains why he, and so many others, equate film with life. Readers will revel in the juicy details of the behind-the-scenes life of a critic, and cheer as he lifts the curtain on life along the red carpet"-- Provided by publisher.
