This volume of more than three hundred letters, selected from some seven thousand gathered around the world, is the first to provide a comprehensive collection of Thornton Wilder's correspondence.
Wilder was known as a man who knew everybody, and these letters vividly document the range of his friendships. Readers will find him roller-skating with Walt Disney, attending an inaugural reception for FDR at the White House, describing his life as a soldier in two World Wars, mentoring younger writers, dining out with Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor, and savoring his association with colorful local citizens during his twenty-month stay as a self-styled "hermit" in an Arizona mining town.
Through Wilder's correspondence, readers can eavesdrop on his conversations with Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein. No�l Coward, Max Reinhardt, Gene Tunney, Alexander Woollcott, Laurence Olivier, Ruth Gordon, Garson Kanin, Aaron Copeland, Paul Hindemith, Leonard Bernstein, Edward Albee, and Mia Farrow. Equally absorbing are Wilder's intimate letters to his family. pThe author of such classics as iOur Town/i and iThe Bridge of San Luis Rey/i, Wilder was a born storyteller and dramatist; we see that talent emerging in scenes and incidental dialogue in his letters. With characteristic exuberance, he draws on his vast reservoir of learning and his incessant reading to inform, encourage, instruct, and entertain. In this collection, Thornton Wilder speaks for himself in his own unique, enduring voice.

Meet Frazz, your typical Renaissance man--successful songwriter, talented triathlete, and elementary school janitor. Okay, maybe Frazz isn't quite that typical, and this is exactly why the students at Bryson Elementary School love him. Frazz's bantering and philosophizing with students is always witty and sharp, yet accessible and enriching. He's also made a name for himself amongst the school's faculty--he's captured the admiration of Principal Spaetzle, the romantic affections of first-grade teacher Miss Plainwell, and the exasperation of cynical Mrs. Olsen. "A Tangled Web" is an e-book original collection of cartoons that showcases the funniest of shenanigans that ensue between Frazz and Bryson Elementary's students and faculty alike. This compilation includes exclusive commentary from "Frazz'"s creator, Jef Mallet himself. Mallet's work was nominated by the National Cartoonists Society for a Reuben division award for Best Newspaper Comic Strip in 2004, and "Frazz" has won two Wilbur Awards in 2003 and 2005, which honors excellence in communicating values and ethics. Indeed, within "Frazz"'s jokes and antics is the heart of the strip: insight that makes learning fun for kids and inevitable for adults.
