An “extraordinary” novel of five friends coming of age in 1960s New York City, from a New York Times–bestselling, Academy Award–winning author (The Plain Dealer).

In Boys and Girls Together, five friends—each of them young, creative, ambitious, and troubled—make their way to Manhattan in pursuit of their dreams. Aaron, the playwright; Walt, the director; Rudy and Jenny, both actors; and Branch, their producer, all come together to struggle, fight, love, create art, and face the hard truths of life. A popular sensation when it was first published in 1964, Boys and Girls Together remains a masterwork of heartbreaking emotional honesty. This ebook features a biography of William Goldman.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A Nazi conspiracy in the heart of modern-day Manhattan—the blockbuster New York Times bestseller that became the classic film thriller. At Columbia University, Thomas “Babe” Levy, a postgrad history student and aspiring marathon runner, is working to clear his late father’s name after the scandal of his suicide, triggered by the McCarthy hearings and accusations of Communist affiliations. In Paraguay, Dr. Christian Szell, former Nazi dentist and protégé of Josef Mengele, has been in exile for decades. Infamous as the “White Angel of Auschwitz,” he’s leaving his South American sanctuary to smuggle a fortune in gems out of New York City. Meanwhile, in London’s Kensington Gardens, an international assassin known only as Scylla has completed a hit. A man with too many secrets and twice as many enemies, Scylla has become a target himself, with only one place left to turn. Then, when Babe’s revered older brother, Doc, pays him a fateful and unexpected visit, it sets in motion a chain of events plunging Babe into a paranoid nightmare of family betrayal, international conspiracy, and the dark crimes of history. Now, the marathon man is running for his life, and closer to answering a single cryptic and terrifying question: “Is it safe?” William Goldman’s Marathon Man was adapted by the author for the award-winning 1976 film starring Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier. Upon its publication, the Washington Post called it “one of the best novels of the year,” and it remains a powerful, horrifying read. In the words of #1 New York Times–bestselling author Harlan Coben: “I found myself racing through it. You could have put a gun to my head, and I wouldn’t have been able to put [Marathon Man] down.” This ebook features a biography of William Goldman.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

William Goldman is one of the world’s most popular storytellers. Amongst his more than two-dozen motion picture screenplays are such iconic works as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Stepford Wives, All the President’s Men and A Bridge Too Far. His acclaimed novels include The Temple of Gold, Boys and Girls Together, The Princess Bride and Marathon Man. His non-fiction embraces The Season and Adventures in the Screen Trade, considered the definitive studies on Broadway and Hollywood respectively. Yet despite his success, Goldman has always been a tormented man, unable to enjoy either his art or the respect it has garnered him. Convinced he is “in on a pass,” he has rarely written without a profound sense of self-doubt. In William Goldman: The Reluctant Storyteller, Sean Egan analyzes both Goldman’s life and output, a task in which he has been assisted by Goldman himself via a series of interviews. The result is an enthralling book that gets to the core of a man who is both supreme talent and perplexing enigma.

Raymond Euripides Trevitt grows up virtually alone in the small town of Athens, Illinois, until a new boy moves in next door. His name is Zachary Crowe, but he goes by Zock.

In the early days, Ray takes Zock hiking and Zock teaches Ray about poetry. They run away to Chicago, hide out in movie theaters, and watch Gunga Din over and over. By high school, it’s clear that Ray is no student while Zock is destined for Harvard. Still, they grow up side-by-side, through adolescence, double-dating, and first love. But during a summer visit home, a tragic accident leaves Ray racked with guilt. Alone once again, Ray discovers that in the depths of despair, resilience and hope are waiting to be found. The Temple of Gold launched the career of bestselling novelist and Academy Award–winning screenwriter William Goldman, best known for Marathon Man and The Princess Bride.
