    Captured forever in a unique memoir, Frank Langella's myriad encounters with some of the past century's most famous human beings are profoundly affecting, funny, wicked, sometimes shocking, and utterly irresistible. With sharp wit and a perceptive eye, Mr. Langella takes us with him into the private worlds and privileged lives of movie stars, presidents, royalty, literary lions, the social elite, and the greats of the Broadway stage.

    Kathy says: "Delightful"
    "Enchanting, Lots of unexpected bursts of laughter."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a wonderful account of Mr. Langella's life in movies & theater. Laced with stories of his celebrity friendships. It was truly a great read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dropped Names?

    I enjoyed his account of Jackie Kennedy & Bunny Mellon.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Its hard to say which scene was my favorite. I can say that I laughed out loud...a lot.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes this is a book I wanted to listen to in one sitting. I tried but...daily life pulled me away.


    Any additional comments?

    I have a friend who is an actress (Broadway/off Broadway) who has done a few things with Mr. Langella. I adored her stories and impersonations she did of him. I have long since been curious of who he really is and what is life is like.

  • Sycamore Row

    Story

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    Brock says: "Grisham at his best (again)"
    "Totally wraps itself around you."

    Would you listen to Sycamore Row again? Why?

    Probably not. I am a one time only book reader


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sycamore Row?

    Lucian...anything he did was intriguing to me.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Beck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to any other performance but I must say, Michael Beck was the key for my continued interest. Absolutely the best narration in any audible book I have listen to so far.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Compelling characters that have deep rich old southern traditions with shocking family secrets.
