Damon Runyon
Damon Runyon
by Jimmy Breslin
Edition: Paperback
48 used & new from $0.01

4.0 out of 5 stars FASCINATING READ, March 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Damon Runyon (Paperback)
Damon Runyon was an excellent journalist and later in life short story writer. Jimmy Breslin, also,was a most colorful writer and he depicted Runyon;s life without any frills. I finished this book with mixed feelings as I am addicted to Runyon's short stories but do not admire the person. Runyon was only happy when rubbing elbows with the underworld. With this lifestyle he was armed to write his fascinating stories of Guys and Dolls====Bookies , gamblers, swindlers and murderers, no good bums and showgirls. I now understand where all his stories evolved. Not only that, but his style of present first person is so unique. I will continue to read and re-read some of his short stories

4.0 out of 5 stars Fog Chaser for Sure!, March 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The name of this coffee sure caught my eye. It is indeed a Fog Chaser. Once or twice a week I get interested in a couple of cups of this delightful French Roast. Amazon.com sent me an e-mail and I thought it would be fun to give it a try. It's strong and delightful!!!! As a senior, I find it's exciting to try new things. And, some turn out to be winners.

This is a nice strong French Roast. For me, it's excellent with a bit of creamer, cinnamon and a tad of sugar! Had not been familiar with San Francisco Bay coffee--decided to try it and was very pleased

5.0 out of 5 stars Loutrel Winslow Briggs, October 15, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I met Loutrel Briggs when I was a little Girl. My father, Frank Winslow Elliott was Loutrel's cousin. My husband and I have visited many of his gardens in Charleston and I own a copy of Loutrel's book "Charleston Gardens". I will welcome James Cothran's new book and savor his appreciation of the outstanding landscapes designed by artist, Briggs. Hopefully, his designs will be preserved for future generations. What a Treasure!!!!

I have a special interest in Mrs Whaley's Charleston Garden. Loutrel Winslow Briggs, the landscape architect involved in the design was my father's cousin. He did many gardens in Charleston and elsewhere. This little book is a treasure of southern charm including a few recipes. I keep several copies on my shelf just to share with friends.

The Daily Coyote: A Story of Love, Survival, and Trust in the Wilds of Wyoming
by Shreve Stockton
Edition: Hardcover
16 used & new from $1.55

5.0 out of 5 stars A Jewel, March 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What a strange title for a book-----After reading this jewel I signed up for my "Daily Coyote" The story is a young woman's search for her own identity filled with love and caring for all of nature. Her bonding with Charlie and the rest of her "family is a reader's treasure. The book abounds with exquisite photos. Quite by accident I stumbled on a story that fills my heart with joy. Shreve Stockton is a most talented writer and photographer and continues to lead a most interesting and meaningful life with her family of furry friends. Thank you, Shreve, for sharing!!!
You continue to enrich our lives each day.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best, January 17, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As an octogenarian, I have tried many hand creams!!!! This is the Best.
I believe the Olive Oil and the extracts from the Olive Leaves is the secret. The fresh lemon/ginger scent is always a delight. I continue to spread the word to friends and family. Give it a try!!!! Joy

A most fascinating book which took place during the WWII. It follows a widower and his children being forced to Germany from South America. Their trials and hardships in war-torn Germany and finally their return back home. A true page turner I have shared with friends and family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gifted author, and an enjoyable read, November 25, 2004
This review is from: Settling (Paperback)
If you love to turn off the TV and curl up with a really good book, here's your chance. Don't miss it! I heard of Settling by word of mouth and enthusiastically pass this on to you. We are lucky recipients of a most talented new author and-----Where have you been Joan Cannon? This is not just a usual run-of-the-mill love story set in NYC, Connecticut and on the coast of Maine----all familiar spots for me especially, but I was most taken with believable main characters who travel through very unsettled lives. Their journey is depicted with such elegance and sensitivity, one actually experiences the sights, sounds and smells of the moment.

I am enchanted with the talent of this new author and look forward to more from her in the future. She has a stylish way with words, and happily I share my enthusiam.
