Casbah is a camel with a mission. Unfortunately, no one has told him what it is. Follow him in his quest for the truth as his evil zookeeper pursues him round half the world with but one aim......... ......... stop Casbah whatever the cost. Or as reviewed by a Kindle purchaser: Very funny and slightly weird. There are very few road trip novels featuring a camel and a zebra, but this is one of the best. The digressions and sub-plots are as interesting as the narrative. If Terry Pratt ever went to Essex, this is his love-child. Read this story and you will feel enlightened yet disturbed.

An “amazing” true account of traveling with Bedouins through a drought-stricken North African landscape (The Boston Globe). Having journeyed in the past across Siberia and up the Congo, Jeffrey Tayler was well accustomed to adventure and danger. But even this experienced travel writer was unprepared for the physical challenges that awaited him in a Sahara dessicated by eight years of unprecedented drought. In this book, he recounts his travels across a landscape of nightmares—charred earth, blinding sky, choking gales, and what is fittingly called the Valley of the Dead—and manages to describe the trip with “hilarious, horrifying, and wonderfully edifying details” (The Boston Globe). The last Westerner to attempt this trek left his skeleton in the sand, and even Tayler’s camels wilt in the searing wastes. But his remarkable perseverance, as well as his fluency in classical and Moroccan Arabic, helps him find here a bracing purity. The Saharawi Bedouin among whom he journeys are untouched by the modernity or radicalism that festers elsewhere in the Arab world. By revealing their ingenuity, their wit, their unrivaled hospitality, and more, Tayler upends our notions of what is, and what is not, essentially Arab. “Beautifully rendered . . . Tayler’s guides provide constant entertainment.” —Seattle Times “Fascinating and informative.” —Booklist

In 1960 the author, a hotshot documentary filmmaker, found himself in the office of John Secondari, impatiently waiting for a meeting with the executive producer of ABCs Close-Up. After 45 minutes he announced he couldnt stay any longer and rushed out onto the New York sidewalks. It took him about three blocks to realize he was making a huge mistake, so he returned and said hed be happy to wait a bit longer. Secondari ended up hiring him, and a year later Webster was nominated for an Emmy for his work on Close-Up. Bat caves in Guatemala, the cobblestones of Paris, afghan deserts, grim Auschwitz, the Himalayas and many other locations were the backdrops for Websters films. In his career, he met many of the best-known people of the 1960s and 1970s--John F. Kennedy, Orson Welles, Pope John XXIII, Elizabeth Taylor--and won many awards, including seven Emmy nominations and a first prize at the Berlin International Television Film Festival, and two International Press Awards.

Often typecast as a menacing figure, Peter Lorre achieved Hollywood fame first as a featured player and later as a character actor, trademarking his screen performances with a delicately strung balance between good and evil. His portrayal of the child murderer in Fritz Lang's masterpiece M (1931) catapulted him to international fame. Lang said of Lorre: "He gave one of the best performances in film history and certainly the best in his life." Today, the Hungarian-born actor is also recognized for his riveting performances in The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934), The Maltese Falcon (1941), and Casablanca (1942). Lorre arrived in America in 1934 expecting to shed his screen image as a villain. He even tried to lose his signature accent, but Hollywood repeatedly cast him as an outsider who hinted at things better left unknown. Seeking greater control over his career, Lorre established his own production company. His unofficial "graylisting" by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, however, left him with little work. He returned to Germany, where he co-authored, directed, and starred in the film Der Verlorene (The Lost One) in 1951. German audiences rejected Lorre's dark vision of their recent past, and the actor returned to America, wearily accepting roles that parodied his sinister movie personality.The first biography of this major actor, The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre draws upon more than three hundred interviews, including conversations with directors Fritz Lang, Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, John Huston, Frank Capra, and Rouben Mamoulian, who speak candidly about Lorre, both the man and the actor. Author Stephen D. Youngkin examines for the first time Lorre's pivotal relationship with German dramatist Bertolt Brecht, his experience as an émigré from Hitler's Germany, his battle with drug addiction, and his struggle with the choice between celebrity and intellectual respectability.Separating the enigmatic person from the persona long associated with one of classic Hollywood's most recognizable faces, The Lost One is the definitive account of a life triumphant and yet tragically riddled with many failed possibilities.
