The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man

release date: Oct 18, 2022
The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man
The raw, candid, unvarnished memoir of an American icon. The greatest movie star of the past 75 years covers everything: his traumatic childhood, his career, his drinking, his thoughts on Marlon Brando, James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, John Huston, his greatest roles, acting, his intimate life with Joanne Woodward, his innermost fears and passions and joys. With thoughts/comments throughout from Joanne Woodward, George Roy Hill, Tom Cruise, Elia Kazan and many others. In 1986, Paul Newman and his closest friend, screenwriter Stewart Stern, began an extraordinary project. Stuart was to compile an oral history, to have Newman’s family and friends and those who worked closely with him, talk about the actor’s life. And then Newman would work with Stewart and give his side of the story. The only stipulation was that anyone who spoke on the record had to be completely honest. That same stipulation applied to Newman himself. The project lasted five years. The result is an extraordinary memoir, culled from thousands of pages of transcripts. The book is insightful, revealing, surprising. Newman’s voice is powerful, sometimes funny, sometimes painful, always meeting that high standard of searing honesty. The additional voices—from childhood friends and Navy buddies, from family members and film and theater collaborators such as Tom Cruise, George Roy Hill, Martin Ritt, and John Huston—that run throughout add richness and color and context to the story Newman is telling. Newman’s often traumatic childhood is brilliantly detailed. He talks about his teenage insecurities, his early failures with women, his rise to stardom, his early rivals (Marlon Brando and James Dean), his first marriage, his drinking, his philanthropy, the death of his son Scott, his strong desire for his daughters to know and understand the truth about their father. Perhaps the most moving material in the book centers around his relationship with Joanne Woodward—their love for each other, his dependence on her, the way she shaped him intellectually, emotionally and sexually. The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man is revelatory and introspective, personal and analytical, loving and tender in some places, always complex and profound.

In Pursuit of the Common Good

release date: Aug 12, 2008
In Pursuit of the Common Good
Shameless exploitation has never been more fun nor done more good for more people than when done by Newman’s Own—the first green food company to use all-natural ingredients, and still the most successful. It was 1982 when Paul Newman and A. E. Hotchner made their foray into local gourmet shops with bottles of their homemade salad dressing. The venture was intended to be a lark, a way to poke fun at the traditional way the market operates. Hurdling obstacle after obstacle, they created the first company to mass-market all-natural products, eliminating the chemicals, gums, and preservatives that existed in food at the time. This picaresque saga is the inspiring story of how the two friends parlayed the joke into a multimillion-dollar company that gives all its profits to the less fortunate without spending money on galas, mailings, and other expensive outreaches. It also serves as a textbook for foundations and charitable organizations looking to do the most good they can with what they have. Told in alternating voices, Newman and Hotchner have written a zany tale that is a business model for entrepreneurs, an inspirational book, and just plain delightful reading.

Shameless Exploitation in Pursuit of the Common Good

release date: Mar 01, 2004
Shameless Exploitation in Pursuit of the Common Good
In 1978, Paul Newman and S. E. Hotchner decided that rather than just distribute Paul''s own salad dressing at Christmas to neighbors, they would offer it to a few local stores. Freewheeling, irreverent entrepreneurs, they conceived of their venture as a great way to poke fun at the mundane method of traditional marketing. Much to their surprise, the dressing was enthusiastically received. What had started as a lark quickly escalated into a full-fledged business, the first company to place all-natural foods in supermarkets. From salad dressing to spaghetti sauce, to popcorn and lemonade, Newman''s Own became a major player in the food business. The company''s profits were originally donated to medical research, education, and the environment, and eventually went to the creation of the eight Hole in the Wall Gang camps for children with serious illnesses.

The Lost Queen

release date: Nov 23, 2018
The Lost Queen
"Whosoever shall enter this space... thy double shall seek thee out." Hidden since antiquity, the tomb of the beautiful Lady of The Two Lands is awaiting rediscovery. The dark duality of Ancient Egypt draws in two modern-day twin brothers, Stuart and Harry Knowles. Physically alike but temperamentally different, one is a renowned Egyptologist, one a convicted felon. Their similarities cause both danger and confusion not only in their professional reputations but also in their love lives. Which woman most resembled the fabulous Lost Queen? Was it the cool mysterious Yasmin or the sparky hypnotic Delilah? The fate of the brothers is as much entwined with these two exotic ladies as it is to the golden Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt. The shadowy underground tombs, where deadly archaic curses mix with twenty-first century skulduggery, reflect the sweet darkness of a cup of Egyptian coffee. "As sweet as love, as black as night and as hot as hell."

JUKE BOX BOOGIE Music Magazine

release date: Dec 04, 2017
JUKE BOX BOOGIE Music Magazine
Hello readers, and welcome to my new magazine. It''s an exciting brand-new project that I hope you will enjoy. Writing about Rock''n''Roll through to Rockabilly and Country is not new to me however; my first article was an interview I did way back in 1996, later published in Crazy Bear magazine. From there I wrote for several others and finally ended up writing for the French magazine Rock & Roll Revue until it ceased operation. Instead of putting my pen and notebook back in the drawer, my partner Judith (Page) and I decided to create our own music journal. Our idea didn''t stop at one magazine, but two versions; one in French and this one in English. The next thing I needed was a team - an Anglo-French one. For the French version I work with Eric Galland, and on the English side I work with Judith and Paul F Newman. My team have other lives; my partner Judith is an author of over a dozen books, and Paul is also a published author and an authority on cosmic astrology. This issue will include an interview with Freddie ''Boy'' Burns, articles on singers: George Jones, Johnny Bond, Sheb Wooley, Kid Thomas and Eddie Noack. There''s also a superb article on Mahalia Jackson by Judith, and another by Paul who will have his own unique page highlighting ''the story of a song''. It''s an amazing experience having to write the majority of articles and editing a magazine in the two languages French and English. The common language in both is ''music'', and inside these pages you can read about Country Music, Hillbilly, Blues, Country Boogie, Rock''n''Roll, and the joy of all...Rockabilly. The name for the magazine I''ve chosen is ''Juke Box Boogie'', a tribute to my old friend Freddie Burns, who sadly died in 2015 at the age of 102. This first issue of Juke Box Boogie is dedicated to the late Bernard Boyat. We, the team salute you. You were a giant and the voice and life of Rock''n''Roll.
