This is a story from the In the Ravine and Other Stories collection. Anton Chekhov, one of the finest masters of what is acknowledged as a difficult genre. There is the richly comic ´´Oh! The Public´´ about a hassled ticket inspector, a wry look at morals and manners in ´´The Chorus Girl´´, and the melancholic tale of a cab driver in ´´Misery´´. Perhaps the finest of all is the novella ´´In The Ravine´´, a minutely observed look at life in a village through the eyes of one family. All the characters come to life with their foibles, their strengths, and their hopes. Kenneth Branagh uses his natural talent for characterisation to bring this village to life. The other short stories in this collection are: ´´The Trousseau´´, ´´A Story Without a Title´´, ´´Children´´, ´´Fat and Thin´´, ´´The Beggar´´, ´´Hush!´´, ´´The Orator´´, and ´´An Actor´s End´´. 1.

Nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album The actors in James Franco´s brilliant debut novel include a McDonald´s drive-thru operator who spends his shift trying on accents; an ex-child star recalling a massive beachside bacchanal; hospital volunteers and Midwestern transplants; a vampire flick starlet who discovers a cryptic book written by a famous actor gone AWOL; and the ghost of River Phoenix. Then there´s Franco himself, who prowls backstage, peering out between the lines—before taking the stage with fascinating meditations on his art, along with nightmarish tales of excess. ´´Hollywood has always been a private club,´´ he writes. ´´I open the gates. I say welcome. I say, Look inside.´´ Told in a dizzying array of styles—from lyric essays and disarming testimonials to hilariously rambling text messages and ghostly footnotes—and loosely modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous´s Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, Actors Anonymous is an intense, wild ride into the dark heart of celebrity. 1.

Cinderella goes to the con in this fandom-fueled twist on the classic fairy tale romance. Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom. Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad´s old costume), Elle´s determined to win...unless her stepsisters get there first. Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons-before he was famous. Now they´re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he´s ever wanted, but the Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake-until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.
