@nyadrn  I've read "Laurel Canyon: The Inside Story of Rock-and-Roll's Legendary Neighborhood" - it was a fun read - hope you find a copy and thoroughly enjoy it! Smiley Very Happy

 

I've just finished reading two books about The Bee Gees:  1. "The Bee Gees:  The Biography" by David N. Meyer, copyright 2013.  This book includes the deaths of both Maurice and Robin.  It also includes a good bit about Andy Gibb.  2. "You Should Be Dancing: My Life With The Bee Gees" by Dennis Bryon, copyright 2015.  Dennis Bryon was drummer with The Bee Gees' band for a number of years.  The first portion of his book covers his time/work with other Welsh/British bands, prior to his hooking up with the Gibb brothers.  He, too, writes about Andy Gibb.

 

I secured a copy of Sue Grafton's latest, "Y Is For Yesterday", from our library, skimmed through a few portions of it, including the closing chapter, and returned the book to the library.  Will try again, in a few months, to read it.  It simply didn't hold my interest like the earlier Kinsey Milhone "alphabet" mysteries did.  Must admit, I am looking forward to seeing what Grafton does with the "Z" book in this series!

 

I have the two latest books in Marcia Muller's Sharon McCone mystery series, at hand presently, "Someone Always Knows" and "The Color of Fear".  I haven't enjoyed this series as much since McCone married Hy Ripinsky, who is involved in clandestine international intrigue.  But I definitely love roaming San Francisco and surrounding areas with the main characters, and there have been some interesting characters brought on board, either at McCone's agency or in her family circle, over the years.

 

I'm also keeping up with Bill Pronzini's "Nameless Detective" series - it's great fun being immersed in San Francisco area with one who knows it intimately, and I love Pronzini's style and his detective's "take" on life in general.

 

(Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini are a married couple, and have written a number of non-fiction books and suspense novels together.)

 

After the Muller books, I have Daphne DuMaurier's "Jamaica Inn" lined up.  I read it when much younger, so this will be a re-read.

 


Boy you are zipping right along.  You do great summaries!

@gatorgorilla  Gold star for mentioning multiple books in one post!  Haha ;-).  

 

I am reading The Egyptian, by Mika Waltari.  There was a Hollywood movie made from the book in 1954.  I am enjoying the book very much, it takes place so long ago that it provides an escape into another world entirely.  Of course that world is not necessarily nice.

This afternoon,I finished Barbara Cook's memoir"Then and Now' a terrific book. .

I knew she was an alcoholic,gave up drinking for good in '77,had weight problems through out her career.  Her only marriage lasted 11 yrs,has a son,Adam

The big surprise was the affair she had with married actor,Arthur HIll. They co-starred in musical"Something More' in '65. Their affair lasted for a couple of yrs,he never left his wife.

Hill starred in one of my favorite lawyer TV shows from the early 70's "Owen Marshall,Counselor at Law'.He died in 2006 age 84

I recommend this book to anybody interested in Broadway musicals,the actors/singers who performed in them Sue

@ksales@wilful I am so glad to see posts here again!  This thread had been my favorite and I hated to lose all the fabulous posters we used to have.  

 

I am almost finished with Desiree by Selinko.  It is an excellent historical novel from the perspective of the first woman Napoleon was engaged to but did not marry.  She later becomes queen of Sweden, despite her father having been a merchant.
