Picks and Pans: Pages
The virtuoso of the tape recorder—whose ability to listen produced such telling books as Divisior Street: America and Working—evokes voices from his own life as a radio show gangster, blacklistee, civil rights advocate and itinerant interviewer. The book seems almost random, with people like Bertrand Russell, Mahalia Jackson, Federico Fellini and a boyhood friend Terkel knew only as Civilization popping in and out. There is, though, a masterful plan in the disorder, and as always Terkel knows what questions to ask, even of himself. (Pantheon, $10)
by Tony Curtis
In the 1920s a flashy gambler named Maxwell Boyd Cody sires the two sons in the title. One becomes a movie star, the other a Las Vegas hood. What ensues is disjointed, abrupt, difficult to follow, as if Curtis simply jotted down key scenes from all those B-movies he made. And why did he feel compelled to tell us every time one of his characters goes to the bathroom? (Doubleday, $8.95)
by Paul Dickson
by the Diagram Group
Dickson's heavily illustrated paperback is a delightful compendium of trivia about games, outdoor and in-, elegantly demonstrating that frivolity is too important to be left to children. (New American Library, $5.95) The Diagram Group—competition-crazed writers and illustrators who produced The Rules of the Game, an encyclopedia of sports—explain how to win in over 2,000 indoor games. A great gift for the compulsive Scrabble player or Monopoly fiend—or someone with an empty coffee table. (Bantam, $7.95)
by Brooke Hayward
Actress Brooke Hayward, oldest child of super-agent-producer Leland Hayward and actress Margaret Sullavan, has produced a harsh but moving portrait of survival within a privileged showbiz family. The supporting cast includes friends Henry, Jane and Peter Fonda, Truman Capote, Josh Logan and James Stewart. (Knopf, $10)
