If you've ever fantasized about feasting on Frank Sinatra's Barbecued Lamb, lunching on Lucille Ball's "Chinese-y Thing," diving ever-so-neatly into Joan Crawford's Poached Salmon, or wrapping your lips around Rock Hudson's cannoli – and really, who hasn't? – hold on to your oven mitts! In The Dead Celebrity Cookbook: A Resurrection of Recipes by 150 Stars of Stage and Screen, Frank DeCaro—the flamboyantly funny Sirius XM radio personality best known for his six-and-a-half-year stint as the movie critic on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart—collects hundreds of recipes passed on from legendary stars of stage and screen, proving that before there were celebrity chefs, there were celebrities who fancied themselves chefs. Their all-but-forgotten recipes—rescued from out-of-print cookbooks, musty biographies, vintage magazines, and dusty pamphlets—suggest a style of home entertaining ripe for reexamination if not revival, while reminding intrepid gourmands that, for better or worse, Hollywood doesn't make celebrities (or cooks) like it used to. Starring Farrah Fawcett's Sausage and Peppers Liberace's Sticky Buns Bette Davis's Red Flannel Hash Bea Arthur's Good Morning Mushroom Tomato Toast Dudley Moore's Crème Brûlée Gypsy Rose Lee's Portuguese Fish Chowder John Ritter's Famous Fudge Andy Warhol's Ghoulish Goulash Vincent Price's Pepper Steak Johnny Cash's Old Iron Pot Family-Style Chili Vivian Vance's Chicken Kiev Sebastian Cabot's Avocado Surprise Lawrence Welk's Vegetable Croquettes Ann Miller's Cheese Soufflé Jerry Orbach's Trifle Totie Fields's Fruit Mellow Irene Ryan's Tipsy Basingstoke Klaus Nomi's Key Lime Tart Richard Deacon's Bitter and Booze And many other meals from breakfast to dessert.

Their Brilliant Careers

The Fantastic Lives of Sixteen Extraordinary Australian Writers

Category: Fiction

Page: 240

View: 6557

Shortlisted for the 2017 Miles Franklin Literary Award Absurd, original and highly addictive . . . In Their Brilliant Careers, Ryan O'Neill has written a hilarious novel in the guise of sixteen biographies of (invented) Australian writers. Meet Rachel Deverall, who discovered the secret source of the great literature of our time - and paid a terrible price for her discovery. Meet Rand Washington, hugely popular sci-fi author (of Whiteman of Cor) and inveterate racist. Meet Addison Tiller, master of the bush yarn, "The Chekhov of Coolabah", who never travelled outside Sydney. Their Brilliant Careers is a playful set of stories, linked in many ways, which together form a memorable whole. A wonderful comic tapestry of the writing life, this unpredictable and intriguing work takes Australian writing in a whole new direction . . . Shortlisted, 2017 NSW Premier's Literary Awards ‘You have to admire O’Neill’s delicious bravura. He’s been one of the few short fiction writers of recent years willing to play around with the form’s possibilities ... Apart from the fact there are more funny lines in O’Neill’s 288 pages than there are likely to be in the entirety of Australian literature elsewhere this year, the profiles are woven smartly together, as the characters’ fates and careers intertwine.’ —Saturday Paper ‘Ryan O’Neill combines conventions of biography and short story in an exhaustively brazen blend of Australian literary history and plausible yet gloriously bonkers invention.’ —Elke Power, Readings Monthly ‘Their Brilliant Careers ... brims with crackerjack wit. Pressure is subtly built; punchlines are explosive.’ —Australian Book Review ‘Ryan O’Neill has embarked on the task of creating a satirical, funny alternative history to Australian literature, an exercise he has achieved admirably and with brilliance.’ —Writers Bloc ‘[Ryan O'Neill] offers a book that is a piss-take, a celebration, a revisionist history and, perhaps most impressively, exceedingly good fun.’ —Dominic Amerena, the Australian ‘O'Neill has arranged a beautiful board of slain waxwings, no less funny or moving for being, in the final estimate of things, no more than shadows of the never living and the forever dead.’ —Adam Rivett, Sydney Morning Herald Ryan O’Neill is the author of The Weight of a Human Heart. He was born in Glasgow in 1975 and has lived in Africa, Europe and Asia before settling in Newcastle, Australia, with his wife and two daughters. His fiction has appeared in The Best Australian Stories, The Sleepers Almanac, Meanjin, New Australian Stories, Wet Ink, Etchings and Westerly. His work has won the Hal Porter and Roland Robinson awards and been shortlisted for the Queensland Premier’s Steele Rudd Award and the Age Short-Story Prize.

TERRIBLE LIFE-ALTERING CALAMITIES THAT HAVE FADED INTO THE FABRIC OF HISTORY Imagine a deadly terrorist bomb attack on American school kids. Or a sinking ocean liner that claims six times the number of lives lost in the Titanic disaster. Or an attack of deadly snakes on a town leaving fifty dead. THESE THINGS HAVE ALREADY HAPPENED, BUT PEOPLE NO LONGER REMEMBER. This is the premise behind Forgotten Tragedies. This eye-opening new book explores a number of tragic events, worldwide but mostly in the U.S. that have largely been wiped from public memory. These are tragedies with great human consequence, both at the hands of man and mother nature. These events include calamities which have faded into the fabric of time, but should be remembered for their level of heartbreaking catastrophe. “One witness said the flood was like a ‘huge hill rolling over and over.’ A train engineer saved many lives when he saw the flood coming, by throwing his engine in reverse, whistle blaring, to warn the people, until the flood reached the engine and tossed it aside like a toy. The engineer survived, but at least 50 people on the train died.” “Long before cable news, these stories of diabolical minds and tremendous tragedy captured our hearts and united America in hope and prayer. Updates crackles over the radio and blared from front pages. Bob’s book captures these fascinating, bizarre and unimaginable firsts in a book that reads like a charcuterie board... bite-sized, meaty enough to fill in the blank spots in your history memory bank or launch you on a quest to learn even more. Learn more in a few pages than in an hour long documentary, this dictionary of disaster is right-sized doses of drama and it’s all real. A great gift and a must for your coffee table.”-Chris Burrous, News Anchor, KTLA-5 Los Angeles “Dramatic accounts of the strange and bizarre moments of numerous forgotten tragedies. For lovers of quirky history, this is a fascinating glimpse into the Forgotten Tragedies of the past that cry out to be remembered. This book has something for everyone, the short stories are full of historical facts and drama without being too overwhelming. From the Great Molasses Flood to one of the first televised tragedies that brought a nation together, Forgotten Tragedies will leave you wanting more.”-Michelle Pennell, book critic "You don't have to be a 'Debbie Downer' to get something out of these twisted tales of misery and mayhem. They're bite-sized bits of history. An easy collection stories to pick up and hard to put down."-Mai Do, former news anchor “Fascinating and compelling. A detailed walk through some of histories headliners that is thoroughly engaging. A page turner that in the end, left me wanting more.”-Toni Forster, Children's Author

Her account is both sensuous and enormously visual as she gradually rebuilds her shattered self-confidence, regains her desire to live life, and rediscovers her almost forgotten love of writing.
