I Remember Me weaves an American tapestry of colorful tales, beginning with the timid musings of a young boy on the verge of becoming a man in the Jewish section of New York’s Bronx neighborhood, and bringing us up to date with the mature insight of a man whose remarkable trajectory has sent him to the top of Hollywood’s elite and sparked the careers of dozens of household-name entertainers. Along the way, Reiner treats his loyal readers to everything from the ordinary to the truly unforgettable: a family trip to a nude beach, French lessons with Mel Brooks, a chapter dedicated to Rinnie the dog who unfortunately mistakes a skunk for a cat, a surprise early-morning visit from the McCarthy era FBI, a heart wrenching story of loss describing the day of his wife’s passing, and then in a revealing chapter of Reiner’s character, he describes “the most theatrically triumphant day” of his young career. Through his memoir, we meet the man behind the success in roles rarely seen before: son to Romanian immigrant Irving Reiner, husband to fellow Bronx native and renowned singer Estelle Reiner, father to the prolific filmmaker Rob Reiner, Dr. Annie Reiner psychoanalyst & gifted singer, and Lucas Reiner, a globally recognized fine artist. Written with the same combination of playful jest and modest humility that has garnered the love and respect of fans for generations, I Remember Me remembers the creative and inspiring journey of one of the most revered comedic icons of the past hundred years. “Carl Reiner is at that wonderful point in life where he knows absolutely everything. Especially, how to tell a wonderful story. I just love being in his world and this book is the Grand Tour.” Jerry Seinfeld “Great stories from the great Carl Reiner. I liked Chapter 29 the best.” Albert Brooks “At a time when so much of comedy can be cruel and mean spirited... Carl Reiner is a perfect example of comedy and kindness mixed with just the right amount of biting wit to make for a really satisfying read.” Jay Leno “Crime and Punishment has always been my favorite book... Until Now!” Mel Brooks

Molly Brogan wrote Remember Me to make the statement that the US family and domestic violence court system are failing the very families they are designed to protect. Yet Remember Me is more, as the first novel in a trilogy that provides the larger canvas to portray a womanâ??s spiritual journey. Remember Me is the story of a woman whose desperate need to own her soul is confused by her notion that the world around her is the basis of her true experience. In this established duality, love cannot be enough when loss is embedded in pain. Pain obscures the messages of spirit spoken with love by the people around her. Grace becomes fleeting, like a ghost without a home to haunt. And yet the journey is perfect in itself as an unfolding prelude to the elusive possibility coming into reach.

It has been some time since Luc, a 32-year-old actor and Jean-Marc, a 38-year-old French teacher, have seen each other, but the wounds from their seven year love affair are only partially healed. Each of them has current worries as well: Jean-Marc, apparently secure and well off, is tired of the endless procession of insensitive and seductive students; he has also realized that he will never be the great novelist he had hoped to become. He feels, in a word, mediocre. Luc, after years as an obscure stage actor, has found popular success playing “a nut case with a lisp” on a TV sitcom, but along with fame has come an unexpected and unwelcome loss of privacy and a struggle for self-respect. To make matters worse, Luc’s father is dying. During this evening at Jean-Marc’s house, the two men dredge up the good and the bad memories; they confront each other about past injustices; they examine each other’s grey hairs; finally, they confess their fears and disillusionments and they comfort each other.

Langston Hughes is widely remembered as a celebrated star of the Harlem Renaissance -- a writer whose bluesy, lyrical poems and novels still have broad appeal. What's less well known about Hughes is that for much of his life he maintained a friendship with Carl Van Vechten, a flamboyant white critic, writer, and photographer whose ardent support of black artists was peerless. Despite their differences — Van Vechten was forty-four to Hughes twenty-two when they met–Hughes’ and Van Vechten’s shared interest in black culture lead to a deeply-felt, if unconventional friendship that would span some forty years. Between them they knew everyone — from Zora Neale Hurston to Richard Wright, and their letters, lovingly and expertly collected here for the first time, are filled with gossip about the antics of the great and the forgotten, as well as with talk that ranged from race relations to blues lyrics to the nightspots of Harlem, which they both loved to prowl. It’s a correspondence that, as Emily Bernard notes in her introduction, provides “an unusual record of entertainment, politics, and culture as seen through the eyes of two fascinating and irreverent men. From the Trade Paperback edition.

"Remember Me" is an autobiography of an officer's experience during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom where he served in an Ambulance Company. His story involves the urgency of a mobilization and the operations, fighting, and supporting a war. And most of all, the book is about soldiers, and remembering Sergeant Paul Nakamura who was a soldier in his unit that was Killed In Action. The book begins with the death of his own father who was a veteran of World War II and the dedication of Camp Nakamura in Iraq and ends with the emotional Memorial service of Sergeant Paul T. Nakamura. It is a celebration of victory, a tragedy in their loss, and a remembering of those who sacrificed. His story and his poems reflect powerfully the feelings of an American soldier.
