“A New Point Of ‘View’
In Ladies Who Punch, readers get a whole new view of the popular TV talk show The View. Making its Amazon Charts debut at No. 15 on the Most Sold list for nonfiction list, Ladies Who Punch goes behind the scenes of one of the most watched daytime talk shows of the last two decades. The brainchild of serious newswoman Barbara Walters, The View not only discussed the news, it became the news, turning into a program that one of the original co-hosts, Debbie Matenopoulos, called “…a reality show and a soap opera...”. Award-winning journalist Ramin Setoodeh conducted extensive interviews with nearly every host and many who worked behind the scenes to bring us the truth about the antics, egos, and rivalries that made, and continue to make, headlines.” -Seira Wilson

About Andy Warhol (Wikipedia)
About Editor Pat Hackett
Pat Hackett was one of Andy Warhol's closest confidantes. Together with him, she co-authored POPism: The Warhol Sixties and Andy Warhol's Party Book, as well as the screenplay for Bad, his cult movie classic.
“The Amazon Books editors recently sat down to discuss some of their favorite celebrity memoirs, starting with the personal journals of the king of Pop Art himself.
Beginning in 1977, Andy Warhol called his friend Pat Hackett every day to dictate the events of his very public and unusual life. “The Andy Warhol Diaries” is a monument to pop culture, a collection of more than 20 years of hobnobbing and high society, where no detail is too picayune to share, and no name is too small to drop.
Always a trend-setter, Andy Warhol might have presaged our era of over-sharing, and celebrity by association.”

Sounds Like Titanic: A Memoir >
by Jessica Chiccehitto Hindman

“A young woman leaves Appalachia for life as a classical musician ... or so she thinks.
When aspiring violinist Jessica Chiccehitto Hindman lands a job with a professional ensemble in New York City, she imagines she has achieved her lifelong dream, but the ensemble proves to be a sham. When the group “performs”, the microphones are never on. Instead, the music blares from a CD.
The mastermind behind this scheme is a peculiar and mysterious figure known as The Composer, who is gaslighting his audiences with music that sounds suspiciously like the Titanic movie soundtrack.
On tour with his chaotic ensemble, Hindman spirals into crises of identity and disillusionment as she “plays” for audiences genuinely moved by the performance, unable to differentiate real from fake.
Sounds Like Titanic is a surreal, often hilarious, coming-of-age story. Hindman writes with precise, candid prose and sharp insight into ambition and gender, especially when it comes to the difficulties young women face in a world that views them as silly, shallow, and stupid. As the story swells to a crescendo, it gives voice to the anxieties and illusions of a generation of women, and reveals the failed promises of a nation that takes comfort in false realities.”
