An intimate yet frank biography of Gore Vidal, one of the most accomplished, visible and controversial American novelists and cultural figures of the past century. The product of thirty years of friendship and conversation, Jay Parini's biography probes behind the glittering surface of Vidal's colourful life to reveal the complex emotional and sexual truth underlying his celebrity-strewn life. But there is plenty of glittering surface as well - a virtual Who's Who of the American Century, from Eleanor Roosevelt on down. The life of Gore Vidal was an amazingly full one; a life of colourful incident, famous people and lasting achievements that calls out for careful evocation and examination. Through Jay Parini's eyes and words comes an accessible, entertaining story that puts the life and times of one of the great American figures of the post-war era into context, that introduces the author to a generation who didn't know him before and looks behind-the-scenes at the man and his work in frank ways never possible before his death. Parini, provided with unique access to Vidal's life and his papers, excavates buried skeletons, but never loses sight of his deep respect for Vidal and his astounding gifts.

Conversations with Mother Teresa is a lively and personal portrait of this modern-day saint that captures Mother Teresa’s vision, energy, determination, and great love for Jesus in the poorest of the poor. Italian Journalist Renzo Allegri relates his impressions upon meeting this “diminutive woman in love with God” in a way that makes us feel as if we were there with him. He also includes lesser known stories about her life: her Albanian family and the hope she never realized of seeing her mother and sister again; her successful plan to place a miraculous medal in the Kremlin; and the suffering she felt when leaving her convent to launch her new mission. All who read this book will share Allegri’s admiration and amazement of Blessed Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity she founded, which he calls “an army that defies the impossible.” “Renzo Allegri shared a special openness and intimacy with Blessed Mother Teresa that took their conversations far beyond the usual inquisitiveness of ordinary reporters. Although she often dismissed questions from the merely curious, she opened her heart to Allegri. This book will not only lift up your soul, but it will also challenge you to love the way Blessed Teresa did.” —Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ, author, speaker, and EWTN host

Whether his passing was sudden or gradual, regardless of the health of the father-son relationship . . . when the man who gave you life dies, a part of you dies as well. It is an emotional rite of passage that affects who you are, how you relate to others, how you deal with your past, and how you face your future. You will find study questions at the end of each chapter in this book as authors Dave Veerman and Bruce Barton share their own emotional journeys, along with the insights and practical advice of professional counselors. Each chapter of When Your Father Dies also focuses on a specific life experience with personal accounts of men – some famous and some not – who have lost their fathers: "My father's death changed my relationship with God. I learned that He's in charge, not me." "When I realized how young my dad had died [at 59], I knew that I had no time to waste if I was going to make something of my life." More than a book about grief, When your Father Dies is a map through the complex emotions and chages a man goes through following the loss of his father.
