Dubbed "the father of the underground press" by People magazine, and called a "raving, unconfined nut" by the FBI, Paul Krassner is a counter-culture legend and a comic genius. According to the Los Angles Reader, "Krassner delivers the funniest, most intelligent social and political commentary in town." Krassner, a crucial figure in the development of America's alternate press, edited and published The Realist from 1958 to 1974, and reincarnated it as a newsletter in 1985. He began his career writing for Mad magazine and has also written articles for Rolling Stone, Playboy, Penthouse, New York, National Lampoon, High Times, The Village Voice, Mother Jones, and The Nation. He even served as editor of Hustler for a brief time. Paul Krassner is the only person in the world to win awards from both Playboy (for satire) and the Feminist Party Media Workshop (for Journalism). He edited Lenny Bruce's autobiography, How To Talk Dirty and Influence People, and with Lenny's encouragement became a stand-up comedian himself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Krassner.

It's the late 1960s. The Pinch, once a thriving Jewish community centered on North Main Street in Memphis, has been reduced to a single tenant. Lenny Sklarew awaits the draft by peddling drugs and shelving books - until he learns he is a character in a book about the rise and fall of this very Pinch. Muni Pinsker, who authored the book in an enchanted day containing years, arrived in the neighborhood at its height and was smitten by an alluring tightrope walker. Muni's own story is dovetailed by that of his uncle, Pinchas Pin, whose epic journey to North Main Street forms the book's spine. Steve Stern interweaves these tales with an ingenious structure that merges past with present, and his wildly inventive fabulism surpasses everything he's done before. 1. Language: English.

'Old English Sheepdogs are teenagers all their lives!' I was told this a little over 30 years ago when I brought my first 'sheepie' into our home. By watching their funny comical ways, our most recent household members-who are actually named Lizzie and Lenny - made writing this book so very easy. This series demonstrates how simple but cute this breed can be. Since these doggies are children at heart, these books are written to give back the lessons and love our little ones can learn from this breed!
