The Connie Francis Story is an American story. Born into a blue-collar Italian family at the end of the Great Depression, she went on to unimaginable heights of success. Along this extraordinary journey of her life she experienced the highest of peaks and the deepest of valleys--the stuff of both dreams and nightmares. Through her eyes, readers have a front row seat to many of the greatest public and private moments in American history and popular culture. Visiting American Bandstand, The Copacabana, Las Vegas and The Ed Sullivan Show, all at their respective heights, readers will experience the unparalleled achievements in her glorious career. Conquering wildly-enthusiastic audiences throughout the world, Connie's international celebrity is one unrivaled by any recording artist to this very day. She is, in fact, the best-selling female artist in history, recording in 12 different languages. She shares with unusual candor and rare insight the juxtaposition that existed in her personal life. While the love affair with her audience was exhilarating, truly gratifying and omnipresent, fulfilling romantic relationships in her personal life always eluded her...with the exception of her one true love, Bobby Darin--a love destroyed by her domineering father, with whom she had a complicated and often troubling relationship. Her willingness to expose the most private aspects of her life with extraordinary honesty and often painful reflection is both startling and courageous. She also experienced an endless series of life-altering tragedies. A horrifying rape, the murder of her beloved brother, Georgie, at the hands of the Mafia, four failed and despairing marriages... All are chronicled with unstinting candor, a deep sense of resentment, and even under the most terrifying and unimaginable set of circumstances, her very rare sense of humor shines through. Her celebrity allowed her to rub elbows with presidents, royalty, the top echelon of the Mob, and every iconic showbiz figure of the era. The stories she shares with an extraordinary cast of characters are, indeed, funnier, stranger and often far more shocking than fiction. Few stars have experienced the rollercoaster ride that marked the life of Connie Francis. Fewer still possess the willingness, wit, insight, intellect and disarming self-deprecation to write a book of such unflinching nature. It is truly a joyful, comedic and emotionally disturbing book to read. Far more horrifying than any best-selling writer of fiction would dare to contemplate.

In this riveting memoir, What Is Your Calling?, the author describes his journey from a picture-book childhood in suburban Detroit to early family tragedy and dislocation. This created an inner quest for meaning that over time convinced him that a fulfilling life demands commitment to equality and justice for all. Philip Newell became a minister at a time when the majority of religious denominations in the United States confined themselves to caring for their own. Convinced that religious teachings call on us to care for all and most especially the dispossessed, Newell played a pivotal role in the 1960s in mobilizing first interdenominational and then broader-based support for the Black population of Wahington D.C., and for the national cause of civil rights. Later in his career, he worked to help organize and empower working-class people throughout the country who had lost jobs and livelihood through deindustrialization. Newell founds his vocational and avocational commitments on his understanding that the Bible clearly articulates that true living is living for the empowerment of each and every person. A profoundly personal memoir, this book also raises the question for each of us: What is your calling?

Hindsight really is better than foresight, in some instances. A few years ago when my faith was far from overflowing, I wondered why it was at such low ebb. Then I began to recall incidents in my life, which were seeds of faith and, perhaps needed nurturing. Fortunately, I could see the struggling plants and began these writings in an effort to revitalize my spirit. It worked. I have grown through the effort. The experience was like opening a trunkful of old keepsakes, souvenirs of events to be remembered for some reason. Sometimes the memories brought tears, often a sense of pride, many times laughter, but always a deep sense of humility. I felt God watching over my shoulder, wondering at my reactions. This is a part of me. I want to share my hope and faith with fellow pilgrims in a difficult time. Discouragements are many and powerful as the media bombards our senses with a world discord. This can be a small antidote.

From his first performance in the late 1940s until his early death in 1982, Marty Robbins established himself as one of the most popular and successful singer/songwriters in the latter half of the 20th century. On the country charts, he racked up 15 #1 hits, including the crossover smashes El Paso and A White Sport Coat (and a Pink Carnation). A beloved entertainer, Robbins received honors from every major music association. El Paso became the first Grammy ever awarded to a Country song, while My Woman My Woman My Wife received the 1970 Grammy for Best Country Song. In 1969 Robbins was named artist of the decade by the Academy of Country Music. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1975 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1982. In addition to his success as a singer/songwriter, Robbins loved car racing. In the early 1970s he joined the NASCAR circuit and raced the rest of his life. In Marty Robbins: Fast Cars and Country Music, author Barbara J. Pruett provides an exhaustive overview of Robbins' life and career. Nearly half of the book is a chronological listing (starting in 1948) of more than 2,000 magazine and newspaper articles and other sources of information about Robbins. Another section provides a basic discography of his hundreds of recordings, including both albums and singles released in his lifetime and after. The book also features a list of all of the songs he copyrighted, stories about his stock car racing activities, several previously unpublished photographs, and interviews with those who knew and worked with him—and even an extensive interview with Robbins himself. As a tribute to a great entertainer, this volume will be of interest not only to entertainment writers and researchers, but also to Marty Robbins fans worldwide.
