Darkness in the City of Light

release date: Oct 11, 2021
Darkness in the City of Light
'The city of light' under German occupation: Paris, a place, a people, their lives in flux. And in these uncertainties, these compromised loyalties, these existences constantly under threat, Marcel Petiot, a mass murderer. A doctor, a resistance fighter, a collaborator: who can tell? Not even the people he kills.

Approximately in the Key of C

release date: Mar 31, 2017
Approximately in the Key of C
Curtis's humour and charm, ability to turn a poem with the seemingly simplest of images, and that understanding of how words will play over the listener's ear, are hallmarks brought to the fore on the page... His greatest skill is to make readers go 'yes, of course'; he reminds us of what we've known all along. Michael McKimm, The Warwick Review

American Prince

release date: Oct 14, 2008
American Prince
“All my life I had one dream and that was to be in the movies.” He was the Golden Boy of the Golden Age. A prince of the silver screen. Dashing and debonair, Tony Curtis arrived on the scene in a blaze of bright lights and celluloid. His good looks, smooth charm, and natural talent earned him fame, women, and adulation—Elvis copied his look and the Beatles put him on their Sgt. Pepper album cover. But the Hollywood life of his dreams brought both invincible highs and debilitating lows. Now, in his captivating, no-holds-barred autobiography, Tony Curtis shares the agony and ecstasy of a private life in the public eye. No simple tell-all, American Prince chronicles Hollywood during its heyday. Curtis revisits his immense body of work—including the unforgettable classics Houdini, Spartacus, and Some Like It Hot—and regales readers with stories of his associations with Frank Sinatra, Laurence Olivier, director Billy Wilder, and film industry heavyweight Lew Wasserman, as well as paramours Natalie Wood and Marilyn Monroe, among others. As forthright as he is enthralling, Tony Curtis offers intimate glimpses into his succession of failed marriages (and the one that has endured), his destructive drug addiction, and his passion as a painter. Written with humor and grace, American Prince is a testament to the power of living the life of one’s dreams.

Some Like It Hot

release date: Apr 13, 2010
Some Like It Hot
Some Like it Hot is one of the most famous films of all time and is also the most profitable comedy in the history of film, not to mention one of the most beloved. It was voted number one funniest movie ever by the American Film Institute and as well as starring Hollywood legend Tony Curtis, it brought together the comedy talents of Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Billy Wilder. It has contributed numerous quotes, styles and stories to Hollywood film lore and has remained the film that Curtis is still most asked about by its legions of fans. For the first time, Curtis will share the untold story behind the making of this legendary film. Told in his frank and inimitable voice, the book will reveal much about his working relationship with Jack Lemmon and the director Billy Wilder. It will explain why the film was changed from colour production to black and white and tell the story of its initially lukewarm reception. The book will also reveal much about Marilyn Monroe, including Curtis' romance with her, her alleged abortion and her conflict with Wilder. Finally, it will describe the film's ongoing impact on Curtis' life and will feature many exclusive never-before-seen photographs from his own collection.

Behaviour Language Scripts for Teachers

release date: May 03, 2014
Behaviour Language Scripts for Teachers
A well-known communication principle states that 'You cannot not communicate.' Even when you are not speaking, your silence communicates something. Similarly, when you talk, you cannot not suggest certain things that people will represent and interpret in their minds. Understanding words, how they are represented in peoples' minds and especially how they affect behaviour is at the heart of this book. All communication has the potential to change a person's state and will have varying degrees of success at getting people to focus on certain things and not others. We are always in a state, or mixed states, which can be influenced by the communications we receive. Once you understand the power of the language you use and how you can structure your communication to produce the responses you want, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish. The content of this book has been put together from over twenty years of experience and work and research in schools and specialist EBD (emotional behavioural difficulties) establishments across the UK. With this book I hope to be able to offer teachers and support staff working with students the language skills needed to minimise negative interactions in their school, increase the potential on task time and positive teacher/student relationship and increase the student's self-esteem, leading to higher attainment.

How to Seduce Marilyn Monroe
The Lives Less Ordinary series brings you the most exciting, adventurous and entertaining true-life writing that is out there, for men who are time-poor but want the best. Lives Less Ordinary drops you into extreme first-hand accounts of human experience, whether that's the adrenaline-pumping heights of professional sport, the brutality of the modern battlefield, the casual violence of the criminal world, the mind-blowing frontiers of science, or the excesses of rock 'n' roll, high finance and Hollywood. Lives Less Ordinary also brings you some of the finest comic voices around, on every subject from toilet etiquette to Paul Gascoigne. '"I first saw her at Universal just walking down the street. She was breathtakingly voluptuous in a see-through blouse that revealed her bra ... I said to this beautiful girl, "My name is Tony." "My name is Marilyn," she said.' Tony Curtis, one of the great Hollywood heartthrobs, was friends with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant and James Dean. He romanced a string of screen sirens including Janet Leigh, Natalie Wood, and of course, Marilyn Monroe. Here, Curtis shares his stories of some of those legendary seductions. This digital bite has been extracted from Tony Curtis's autobiography American Prince.

Folk

Merging guidebook with historical account as well as lore with memoir, this volume travels to western Wales—from the coastal resorts of Tenby and Saundersfoot, west to Stackpole and Barafundle, and north to Landsker, the cultural boundary between the English-speaking south and the Welsh-speaking north. As it views the area through the perspectives of both local and tourist, this account integrates personal anecdotes into the narrative of the region’s history, while also capturing South Pembrokeshire's current culture and landscape.

Heaven's Gate

release date: Jan 01, 2001
Heaven's Gate
Tony Curtis's new collection of poems encompasses a wide variety of forms and subjects in which he looks at the world with an ever keener eye. Heaven's gate is the eagerly awaited new collection by one of Britains's best poets. Though Curtis's themes and subject matter are diverse, there is a persuasive clarity to his poems. His style is seemingly casual, almost artless, but is actually carefully composed. The sonnet sequence dedicated to a son studying abroad, 'Letters to Gareth in Amherst', is characteristic. The light newsy voice contrasts with the tight sonnet form while the rhymes become the envelope containing and restraining the father's emotions. Conversely, casual domestic encounters and incidents take on a beguiling intimacy. In the title poem the hale Bopp comet is glimpsed and consiered from the carpark of an Indian restaurant. As ever, these well-crafted poems are grounded in the particular but insinuated by the universal.

Three Songs of Home
Tony Curtis writes, even on complex matters, with disarming ease. In this new collection he has pared his work down to the bone, achieving, in many of these poems, the strength and mystery of myth and fable. The poet journeys into the high Himalayas where he faces his own mortality. What he brings back is a book haunted by ghosts and demons, by illusions, dreams, memories, and desires, in other words a richly experienced and carefully shared wisdom, offered in an immediate yet subtle series of poems.
