An Echo of Applause is the latest of six collections of poetry published by this author. Dr. Robert Birch is retired after almost 35 years of practice as a psychologist specializing in marital and sex therapy. Initially he wrote bawdy limericks and then moved on to other forms of verse. His first book of poetry is highly erotic, but with each successive publication he has moved toward broader topics. This book is a prime example of his versatility, not only in subject matter, but also in form. Poems in this book are grouped into these overlapping categories: Ballads & Such, Youth, Life and Death, Perils of Aging, Virtue and Value, Love Won and Lost, People Watching, Nature, Sonnets, Memories, The Villanelle, Protest, Poets and their Poems, Dreams, Stories, Two Odes, Voice of Eros, Cinquain Collection, and Haiku. Within the 200 pages, you will find humorous verse, as well as poems of a more serious nature. You will find poems written in strict meter and perfect rhyme, but also many examples of free verse. The book will appeal to those who like reading poetry they can understand, poetry that will make them laugh as well as think, and poetry that they can easily related to.

A seriously funny look at the roots of American Entertainment When Groucho Marx and Charlie Chaplin were born, variety entertainment had been going on for decades in America, and like Harry Houdini, Milton Berle, Mae West, and countless others, these performers got their start on the vaudeville stage. From 1881 to 1932, vaudeville was at the heart of show business in the States. Its stars were America's first stars in the modern sense, and it utterly dominated American popular culture. Writer and modern-day vaudevillian Trav S.D. chronicles vaudeville's far-reaching impact in No Applause--Just Throw Money. He explores the many ways in which vaudeville's story is the story of show business in America and documents the rich history and cultural legacy of our country's only purely indigenous theatrical form, including its influence on everything from USO shows to Ed Sullivan to The Muppet Show and The Gong Show. More than a quaint historical curiosity, vaudeville is thriving today, and Trav S.D. pulls back the curtain on the vibrant subculture that exists across the United States--a vast grassroots network of fire-eaters, human blockheads, burlesque performers, and bad comics intent on taking vaudeville into its second century.

(Applause Books). He's famous for twice being People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive, for his penchant for practical jokes and his vow never to remarry, as well as for his Oscar-winning and Emmy-nominated acting career. But George Clooney's reputation as a celebrity belies his essential seriousness, as a businessman, a humanitarian, and, of course, in his ascendancy to the Hollywood A-list. In this updated biography of one of Hollywood's most colorful leading men, pop culture expert Kimberly Potts traces Clooney's life from small-town boy to big-screen idol. Clooney slowly and deliberately built a resume that took him from TV stardom on ER to a winning film career as a serious actor, writer, producer and director. Along the way Potts fills us in on Clooney's early attempts to break into film (including his Batman flop), his many well-publicized romances, and his political and humanitarian efforts, including cofounding the antigenocide organization Not On Our Watch. Potts also discusses Clooney's shrewd strategy of alternating blockbuster movie roles with less lucrative "passion" projects such as Syriana and Good Night, and Good Luck that reflect his personal ethics. He won an Academy Award for the former and rave reviews for the latter, and has continued to earn accolades and Oscar nominations for smart dramas such as Michael Clayton and Up in the Air . Including fresh interviews, essential Clooney photographs, an updated filmography and timeline, and a list of his favorite 100 films, this is the book no Clooney fan will want to be without.

"Threading the subtle seam between what lives and what remains, A Twenty Minute Silence Followed by Applause succeeds in conjuring the poetry of Marcel Marceau's performance as both a character on stage and in history. . . . Like pulling a ghost from a dark room, this is an accomplished work of historical portraiture: precise in its objects, complex in its melancholy, and insightful in its humor." —Thalia Field Part biographic inquiry, part lyric portraiture, radio producer Shawn Wen reanimates world-renowned mime Marcel Marceau's silent art. The book opens in darkness, a single figure standing in the spotlight. It's Marceau in his signature hat, painted face, black clothes, and ballet slippers. Over time, the text accumulates objects: dolls, paintings, icons, wives, children, cities, and performances. By turns whimsical and melancholic, this spare volume takes shape through capsule histories, interview clips, vivid scenes, and archival research. Shawn Wen is a writer, radio producer, and multimedia artist. Her writing has appeared in The New Inquiry, The Seneca Review, The Iowa Review, The White Review, and the anthology City by City: Dispatches from the American Metropolis (Faber and Faber, 2015). Her radio work broadcasts regularly on This American Life, Freakonomics Radio, and Marketplace. She is the recipient of numerous fellowships, including the Ford Foundation Professional Journalism Training Fellowship and the Royce Fellowship.
