Elegance and Debonair

What more can one say to Grace Kelly, visually stunning and beautiful, and Cary Grant, suave and handsome, with the backdrop of the French Riviera and classic look of the fifties heightened by the film master, Alfred Hitchcock. Who cares about realism for this classic sleuth adventure!
Man of Adventure

Frederick Law Olmstead is credited as the Father of American landscape architecture because of his great works/parks including NYC's Central Park, the Capitol Grounds, and Biltmore. But his long interesting career also included that of merchant marine, experimental farmer, author/journalist on racism in the South pre-Civil War and administrator extraordinaire of medical/hospital personnel during the Civil War. And yes, his landscape architecture projects spanned the entire United States during many decades well into the 20th century.
Devil in the Details

If you love CSI style crime shows, read this book from cover to cover on how the details of the crime studied in this book are delivered by the author. Amazing, frustrating, and prejudicial by all the players involved in the case and related trials.

Sweetheart Leslie Caron surprises you with her sometimes self indulgent life in the movies. One forget the number of good films she made with leading actors in Hollywood and more. Light and easy read.

A lighthearted account of the actress, Judi Dench, throughout the years in film, television, and especially, theater. You can hear her voice when you read the pages and her anecdotes about, with and by close friends. One will continue to admire this veteran and skilled actress.
