My Paper Chase: True Stories of Vanished Times by Harold Evans: “In My Paper Chase, Harold Evans recounts the wild and wonderful tale of newspapering life. His story stretches from the 1930s to his service in WWII, through towns big and off the map.

Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other by Sherry Turkle: “In Alone Together, MIT technology and society professor Sherry Turkle explores the power of our new tools and toys to dramatically alter our social lives. It’s a nuanced exploration of what we are looking for—and sacrificing—in a world of electronic companions and social networking tools, and an argument that, despite the hand-waving of today’s self-described prophets of the future, it will be the next generation who will chart the path between isolation and connectivity.”-Amazon

He has long been regarded by other playwrights and screenwriters, actors, and cognoscenti of the theater and cinema as America’s master storyteller; critics compared him to William Faulkner and Anton Chekhov.”-Amazon
