For more than a century, people have been drawn to sites of tragedy involving the rich, beautiful and notorious of Hollywood. Tourists at the center of the movie universe flock to Rudolph Valentino’s grave, the house where Marilyn Monroe died, the “O.J. murders” condo, the hotel where John Belushi overdosed, a myriad of haunted mansions. In its extensively researched and enlarged second edition, this book tells the stories of these locations and makes finding them simple. Seventeen driving tours include more than 650 sites. Each tour covers a specific area, from Hollywood and the Sunset Strip to Brentwood and Malibu, covering the entire Los Angeles basin. Concise, easy-to-follow directions are given to each location with 145 photos and the fascinating story behind each stop.

It's not what you think. Unless you think everything is wrong. Imagine if Kurt Vonnegut and Hunter Thompson collaborated on a new version of The Bible, and you kinda get the gist. The Autobiography of Jesus X is not for the faint of heart! Here is the prophet: a cynical, dreadlocked pothead crackpot who's done all sorts of despicable things. For which He wonders if forgiveness is possible. Because now he is a only a ghost of the God he once was - now retired. After this one incarnation as a human being on Earth, he quit. As God, he had become indifferent. But as a tall black Jew with blue eyes and red hair in the Roman Empire, he proved to be too smart for his own good. Or maybe just too human. He tried to quit. The Autobiography of Jesus X is either the new Bible or the most offensive book ever written, or both. Maybe neither. This is part sci-fi/fantasy, part exposé memoir, and part stand-up comedy. He pretty much frames it as His last message to humanity. So we might want to listen. Or read. Or whatever.

Hispanic Profiles is an extraordinary contribution not only to The English- and Spanish-speaking cultures but for anyone interested in the great history, literature, music, painting, and architecture of the Hispanic world. Its purpose is to provide the kind of education that has been lacking in the publishing industry, that is, a single volume that offers the reader the depth and scope that is found in this book. Here we will come to know great artists that have been overlooked or have never been seen within the context of a single presentation. The vast panorama presented here of Hispanic culture has been far too long ignored or simply overlooked because of those cultures and artists that have been given unjustifiable preferred status. In the list of the "profiles" presented here, there will be names that practically anyone with a good general education or keen interest in the arts will find familiar. But there will also be many others who will be totally unknown, and yet - through this discussion - the reader will discover that those same unknown artists will be for the most part as great as the familiar ones. Some of the most familiar names will be Cervantes, El Greco, Velazquez, Calderon de la Barca, Murillo, Garcia Lorca, Goya, Ortega y Gasset, Enrique Granados, Victoria de los Angeles, Picasso, Alicia de Larrocha, Jose Clemente Orozco, Frida Kahlo, Joan Miro, Pablo Casals, Placido Domingo, Juan Ramon Jimenez, Pablo de Sarasate. Heitor Villa-Lobos, Pablo Neruda, Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Mario Vargas Llosa, Diego Rivera, Octavio Paz, and David Alfaro Siqueiros - the not so familiar. We all have heard of Chaucer and his Canterbury Tales, but how many have heard of Juan Ruiz de Hita? Yet knowledgeable critics consider Juan Ruiz superior to Chaucer who wrote at about the same time. There is not a single playwright in the world superior to Lope de Vega - save for Shakespeare, of course. We have all heard of the character Don Juan and pe
