Valentines & Vitriol

For over two decades, the art of the interview was very nearly the sole province of Rex Reed, the Master of the Celebrity Profile. While still in his twenties Rex Reed became the widely-syndicated film critic for a succession of high-profile magazines and newspapers and from that vantage point began to interview everyone in the film and theater worlds who mattered. In Valentines & Vitriol Rex Reed reports on Elizabeth Taylor on the set of the disastrous Russian-American collaboration The Bluebird, captures Roy Scheider and Louise Fletcher just as the public is becoming aware of their talents, a late-in-life meeting with legend Bette Davis, William Holden coming to grips with aging and wanderlust, and a surprisingly revealing look at David Bowie who is a much more sensible person than his image suggested. Writer Tom Wolfe has said about Reed: 'Rex Reed...raised the celebrity interview to a new level through his frankness and his eye for social detail. He has also been a master at capturing a story line in the interview situation itself.' Along with Wolfe, Truman Capote, Kenneth Tynan, and Harry Crews, Rex Reed achieved a literary reputation for a genre, the celebrity profile, once relegated to gossip journalists who as often as not wrote studio-approved fantasies of the lives of the stars. Devault-Graves Digital Editions has reissued Rex Reed's quartet of best-selling profile anthologies: Do You Sleep In the Nude?, Conversations in the Raw, Valentines & Vitriol, and People Are Crazy Here. Virtually anyone who was anyone during the 1960s, '70s, and early '80s in the movie and theater world are captured for the ages in these books. When asked why he no longer writes celebrity profiles, Mr. Reed answered simply: 'The movie stars of today are no longer interesting.' But when they were, Rex Reed was there to file them away for history. It is to the reader's pleasure to rediscover them. Included in Valentines & Vitriol are profiles of: Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Lillian Hellman, Bette Davis, William Holden, David Bowie, Robert Redford, and over twenty more.

For over two decades, the art of the interview was very nearly the sole province of Rex Reed, the Master of the Celebrity Profile. While still in his twenties Rex Reed became the widely-syndicated film critic for The New York Observer and from that vantage point began to interview everyone in the film and theater worlds who mattered. In Do You Sleep in the Nude?, the first of his four best-selling celebrity profile collections, he captures the ego and zany personality of soon-to-be-superstar Barbra Streisand, the elusive Warren Beatty just finishing Bonnie and Clyde, the last ever interview with legend Buster Keaton, and a classic and much reprinted portrait of Ava Gardner in her waning years. Writer Tom Wolfe has said about Reed: 'Rex Reed...raised the celebrity interview to a new level through his frankness and his eye for social detail.

Parenting expert Carl E. Pickhardt brings his considerable experience to tackling the most pervasive and difficult problems parents face in childrearing. Whereas many books on family conflict focus on the prickly teenage years, Pickhardt takes the long view and treats a broad range of ages - starting from the early toddler years all the way through college. He empowers parents to turn conflict into an opportunity to engage with their children on a deeper level. Readers will learn to:- Manage emotion during a fight so that you can hear the feelings behind the vitriol without taking offense. - Give criticism to children in a way that focuses on the behavior and not the person. - Find a hook inside silent tension that will let you connect with your children's feelings and show them a way to empathize with yours.- Consider your children's point of view during a disagreement and teach them to voice their grievances with respect. With a distinctive emphasis on how to distinguish types of conflict dependent on age and gender, Pickhardt shows parents how to turn the daily battles into opportunities for growth. This is a practical guide that helps parents confront difficult issues with which all families grapple.
