NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • "None of this is real and all of it is true." —Jim Carrey Meet Jim Carrey. Sure, he's an insanely successful and beloved movie star drowning in wealth and privilege—but he's also lonely. Maybe past his prime. Maybe even ... getting fat? He's tried diets, gurus, and cuddling with his military-grade Israeli guard dogs, but nothing seems to lift the cloud of emptiness and ennui. Even the sage advice of his best friend, actor and dinosaur skull collector Nicolas Cage, isn't enough to pull Carrey out of his slump. But then Jim meets Georgie: ruthless ingénue, love of his life. And with the help of auteur screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, he has a role to play in a boundary-pushing new picture that may help him uncover a whole new side to himself—finally, his Oscar vehicle! Things are looking up! But the universe has other plans. Memoirs and Misinformation is a fearless semi-autobiographical novel, a deconstruction of persona. In it, Jim Carrey and Dana Vachon have fashioned a story about acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, our "one big soul," Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the world—apocalypses within and without.

You will never view escort services in the same way again. This is an account that exposes a hidden world that many have preconceived notions about. There is always another side to the story. The story begins in early 1993, with the discovery of blocks on escort service telephone lines in Orlando area resort PBX systems during large convention bookings. The blocks began in the late 1980s and were not isolated to the Orlando area, but were also in operation in Las Vegas. The blocks have evolved in form, but still exist today. In 1992, Vicky Gallas opened escort services in Orlando, Florida. Two years later she became the focus of an intense criminal investigation that resulted in her arrest in late 2001, and subsequent jury trial and acquittal by the jury in 2003. In this hard-hitting memoir, she reveals how racketeering and organized crime charges were brought against her based on proof so flimsy that agents and prosecutors could not get a wiretap or a warrant to search. For anyone fascinated with the foibles of our criminal justice system, the sensational Orlando connection, and how escort services really work, this is a must-read book. This is a Second Edition and includes various updates throughout. Most aliases have been omitted.

“A fascinating and detailed account of the German navy’s war, mostly covering U-boat activities” by the man who succeeded Hitler as Fuhrer (Damien Burke, author of TSR2: Britain’s Lost Bomber). This is the story of the last world war, as told by Grand Admiral Karl Döenitz himself. His memoir covers his early career with submarines in the First World War and follows both his successes and failures through the Second World War, with great detail on the way the U-boat campaign was waged, as told by the man who invented U-boat tactics. Döenitz includes details of the U-boat campaigns during the Second World War as well as the opinions, ideas and commentary on the period. Of particular interest are the comments regarding British and American conduct during the war. This is an important social document and an invaluable source for any student of the last war. After becoming the last Fuhrer of Germany after Hitler’s suicide in May 1945, Karl Döenitz spent ten years and twenty days in Spandau Prison having been convicted of war crimes following a trial at Nuremberg. “A very interesting book looking at the war in the Atlantic from the German side . . . one of the best accounts of the Battle of the Atlantic.”—UK Historian

Terrier Memoirs paints a mosaic that these players, cheerleaders, coaches, trainers, and friends of football were universally affected by the presence of and participation in Boston University Football. They came from all walks of life, were unified as a team toward common and lofty goals, and emerged as educated men prepared to begin their professional lives not just with lessons from the classroom but those on the field of competition. Their stories are personal, comic, heartbreaking, and poignant. They speak of accomplishments where it could be argued that were it not for football and the opportunity it provided in obtaining an education, their professional accomplishments may never have come to pass. Their stories are proof that football indeed has a value on college campuses and should be considered an investment, not just a cost.

Lost love haunts many as they age, but ; in Staten Island Memoirs, Paris. Polanski creates a ficticious love affair with a beautiful face from the past; he cannot forget; Paris has led a full life that lacks only one thing - the love of a beautiful woman he met 43 years ago. The woman in question is the real life equivalent to Helen, the central character in the novel, modeled after the Greek Goddess Helen of Troy. The story opens with Paris Polanski in his home in Grant City, Staten Island. Not being able to find his long lost love, Paris creates a work of fiction in which he recreates his life by falling in love with, marrying and becoming part of Helen’s life, thus showing just how far one man's obsession will go to remove the sorrow of lost love. The story then goes back in time and continues Paris Polanski as a young man, secretly in love with a nameless, beautiful young woman. Shy and lacking self esteem, he is unable to express his feelings for her, and loses her to another man. After serving in the US Navy, Paris attends a New York City college and during one of his classes, he dreams of his ideal woman in the image and likeness of Helen of Troy. A year later, Paris sees the same young woman, Helen Jones, a student at Wilson College. She is smart, beautiful, and popular, and comes from a wealthy family. Paris on the other hand comes from a middle class family, dresses poorly, and is not blessed with the social graces; Engaged to a handsome young Ivy League attorney, Helen learns he has been cheating, and ends the relationship.

In the last volume of The Speedicut Memoirs, Charles Speedicut relates his involvement, as a member of the Special Operations Executive, in many of the highly successful deception strategies masterminded by the cross-dressing Colonel Dudley Clarke, including Operation MINCEMEAT. He also discloses his role in the high-profile assassinations of the Protector of Moravia & Bohemia, Reinhard Heydrich, the Vichy French Admiral, François Darlan, and the abduction of General Heinrich Kreipe. In the post-war period, Speedicut is principally concerned with uncovering Soviet spies in the British Establishment although, along the way, he recounts the true story on which The Third Man was based. He also reveals that he was responsible for stealing the Duchess of Windsor’s jewels, his pivotal role in the Vassall and Profumo scandals, the true identity of the ‘headless man’ in the notorious Argyll divorce case and the reason why his memoirs were written whilst serving time in HM Prison Ford. “The activities of the Special Operations Executive have been described as ‘ungentlemanly warfare’ entirely because of the exploits of Charles Speedicut.” The Rt Hon Sir Winston Churchill

As the body politics of life writing in the United States change, illness and disability memoirs receive considerable attention. Although these narratives are framed by a lack of health, they abundantly present health and do so beyond its binary relationship to the pathological. This book departs from previous scholarship by bringing into focus the writers' representations of cure, recovery, and healing as well as their reluctance to bring closure to their narratives and align their stories with traditional notions of health. These memoirs thus partake in the construction of alternative narratives of illness and disability.
