Secrets about Fonzie

Truth About Fonzie coverThe Truth About Fonzie
Herz
1976

From the Happy Days Files, here is the definitive work about the Fonz. Happy Days was a family favorite back when I was a teenager. I am sure if you are my age or older you probably did invoke the phrase “sit on it” at some point (teachers and parents being the preferred target). I always have been a fan of Henry Winkler, as an actor, the author of Hank Zipzer book series for kids and as one of my junior high crushes. I would have loved this book if it had been available in 1974, but by the late 70s and the infamous “jump the shark” episode in 1977, Happy Days was quickly starting to fade as a cool show.

Sit on it, everyone,

Sally Field coverSally Field: A Biography
Bonderoff
1987

Submitter: Here’s a 1987 biography of Sally Field that is being weeded from our library (mostly for condition). I love that she’s rocking the jean jacket and feathered hair on the cover – it’s very 80s. Included are photos featuring her “They like me…they really like me” Oscar speech and her “happily ever after” (at least until 1993) marriage to Alan Greisman. There’s not really a newer biography of her, but a lot has happened to her in the last 30 years, most of which people can find online or in magazines.

Holly: Someone needs to write a new biography of Sally Field. She’s an icon! This book does not do her justice.

Trump This

Donald Trump Surviving at the Top coverTrump
Surviving at the Top
Trump and Leerhsen
1990

Just in case you haven’t had enough of Trump, here is your chance to jump into his “classy” lifestyle. Don’t miss this chance to see the all the glitz of this business superstar and his super cool friends. Trump gives the reader all the inside info on his business philosophy and a chapter devoted to his “typical” day in the life. The prose reads as a string of sound bites suitable for an infomercial or maybe a revival meeting. Obviously you don’t want to miss this gem.

To all our non-USA visitors watching the train wreck of American politics: I cannot explain Donald Trump. My head will hurt if I try.
