Jackie O: On the Couch Jackie O: On the Couch

By Alma H. Bond, Ph.D.

Jackie O: On the Couch is the story of Jackie Kennedy Onassis as she might have written it.

This is not just another biography. For the first time, Jackie O: On the Couch highlights Jackie’s life from her own perspective, as imagined by author Dr. Alma Bond, a psychoanalyst and long-time student of Jackie lore.

The facts are all historically correct, as are the ideas, the Washington intrigue and politics, and the examination of the role of women in society and in the White House. Jackie speaks of her need to record her story truthfully—to replace the hodgepodge of lies published during her lifetime. Read More

"Hank"
By Arch Montgomery

Meet Hank Collins, an astute, gutsy, and funny 13-year-old who's just finished the seventh grade at a public school in Baltimore's affluent suburbs. But all is not trouble-free for Hank. He must contend with a troubled family, an alien school, and a world otherwise booby-trapped with alluring but perilous possibilities.

Hank is the page-turning, contemporary, coming-of-age story he tells of growing up amidst this wreckage during a dangerous and suspenseful summer. From him, we hear the events of his life. We stand by him on the baseball field and at the dinner tables of his remarried parents. We walk with him into an epic, appalling, yet believable teenage party. We share with him an astounding encounter with adult weekend warriors. We see not just his confusions and dismays, but his grit, his honesty, and his vulnerability. We like him, and root for him, and care about him. >>Read More

A Cry Unheard Finn: a Novel
by Matthew Olshan

and unabridged audio cassette ($29.95)

Walker, a gossip columnist with the National Enquirer, presents Hollywood at its most vicious in this novel of ambition, greed, and revenge.

These actions come at the worst possible time, for Charmain is seeking the lead in Medusa, a film about an ambitious actress willing to kill for a prized move role. >>Read More
