The first major biography of the iconic actor Henry Fonda, a story of stardom, manhood, and the American character Henry Fonda's performances—in The Grapes of Wrath, Young Mr. Lincoln, The Lady Eve, 12 Angry Men, On Golden Pond—helped define "American" in the twentieth century. He worked with movie masters from Ford and Sturges to Hitchcock and Leone. He was a Broadway legend. He fought in World War II and was loved the world over. Yet much of his life was rage and struggle. Why did Fonda marry five times—tempestuously to actress Margaret Sullavan, tragically to heiress Frances Brokaw, mother of Jane and Peter? Was he a man of integrity, worthy of the heroes he played, or the harsh father his children describe, the iceman who went onstage hours after his wife killed herself? Why did suicide shadow his life and art? What memories troubled him so? McKinney's Fonda is dark, complex, fascinating, and a product of glamour and acclaim, early losses and Midwestern demons—a man haunted by what he'd seen, and by who he was.

Molly didn't know what to say after all that, so she just didn't say anything, which was probably the best course. The old woman put the poem back in her pocket and in its place came up with a silver needle and a spool of gold thread, which she handed to Molly. ''Thank you,'' Molly said, but to tell the truth she was a little disappointed. She was hoping for something more useful. ''Is that all?'' she asked ''That and this,'' the old woman replied, and before anybody could stop her she began to recite another poem: Gold and silver, sun and sea / Love and courage set them free. And then she was gone. And so Molly went on her way, ever closer to the ogre's dark den. And she found it the only way she could, by falling in it herself. --- from ''Molly and the Ogre Who Would Not Pick Up''

The essays in The Story About the Story Vol. II chart a trajectory that digs deep into the past and aims toward a future in which literature can play a new and more profound role in how we think, read, live, and write. In the second volume of The Story About the Story, editor J. C. Hallman continues to argue for an alternative to the staid five-paragraph-essay writing that has inoculated so many against the effects of good books. Writers have long approached writing about reading from an intensely personal perspective, incorporating their pasts and their passions into their process of interpretation. Never before collected in a single volume, the many essays Hallman has compiled build on the idea of a "creative criticism," and offers new possibilities for how to write about reading. The Story About the Story Vol. II documents not only an identifiable trend in writing about books that can and should be emulated, it also offers lessons from a remarkable range of celebrated authors that amount to an invaluable course on both how to write and how to read well. Whether they discuss a staple of the canon (Thomas Mann on Leo Tolstoy), the merits of a contemporary (Vivian Gornick on Grace Paley), a pillar of genre-writing (Jane Tompkins on Louis L’Amour), or, arguably, the funniest man on the planet (David Shields on Bill Murray), these essays are by turns poignant, smart, suggestive, intellectual, humorous, sassy, scathing, laudatory, wistful, and hopeful—and above all deeply engaged in a process of careful reading. The essays in The Story About the Story Vol. II chart a trajectory that digs deep into the past and aims toward a future in which literature can play a new and more profound role in how we think, read, live, and write.

Gustavo Sánchez hat eine Mission: Jeder seiner hässlichen Zähne muss ersetzt werden. Glücklicherweise ist er Auktionator – der weltbeste Auktionator –, was ihm dabei hilft, Geld für die neuen Zähne zu sammeln. Dabei entdeckt er, dass es entscheidend ist, die Objekte, die er anbietet, mit Geschichten auszustatten. Das steigert ihren Wert immens. Auch wenn er noch ein paar andere Fähigkeiten besitzt, die ihm Geld verschaffen: Nach zwei Gläsern Rum kann er Janis Joplin imitieren, Glückskekse deuten und wie Christopher Kolumbus ein Hühnerei auf den Tisch stellen und beim Schwimmen den Toten Mann machen. Das Geschichtenerzählen aber entwickelt er zur Meisterschaft. Und die Sammlung seiner Zähne berühmter Menschen kann sich sehen lassen: von Plato zu Plutarch, Michel de Montaigne, Virginia Woolf und Enrique Vila-Matas. Sanchez aber will die von Marilyn Monroe ... Valeria Luiselli hat mit der Geschichte meiner Zähne ein Buch über den kreativen Prozess, den Wert von Kunst, den Kult um literarische Berühmtheiten geschrieben, eine herrliche Mixtur aus Erinnerung, Erfindung und autobiografischer Reflexion, in deren Zentrum ein Mann mit einem »Mund voller Horror« steht. Eine exzentrische, ganz und gar außergewöhnliche Geschichte, die die Konvention der literarischen Genres sprengt.

Entodil, was nun? Ein grosses braunes Ei kollert abwärts durch einen Wald und über eine Wiese, bis es in einem Nest mit drei weiteren, sehr viel kleineren Eiern landet. Das Nest gehört einer Ente, die sich nicht vom Grössenunterschied der Eier stören lässt, sondern weiter brütet. Schliesslich schlüpfen die Entenküken aus. Alle sind vom Aussehen her verschieden. Aus dem vierten Ei schlüpft ein kleines Krokodil "Gui-Gui". Die fünf bilden eine Familie, akzeptieren und lieben einander. Bis drei Krokodile auftauchen und Gui-Gui weismachen wollen, wie er sich als "richtiges Krokodil" zu betragen hat. Er soll seine Entenfamilie in eine Falle führen. Gui-Gui und den Enten gelingt es zum Glück, die Krokodile zu überlisten und in die Flucht zu schlagen. Auf den guten Text, der perfekt mit den Bildern übereinstimmt, kann beim Anschauen auch verzichtet werden, denn die einfachen Illustrationen in gedeckten Farben und klaren Konturen besitzen eine sehr hohe Aussagekraft. Auf den verschiedenen Seiten lassen sich zusätzlich mit viel Spass wiederkehrende kleine Details finden. Ein herrliches Bilderbuch! Ab 4 Jahren, *****, Jeanne Locher-Polier.
