What if hope is the most dangerous emotion? What if a frog had wings? What if our political leaders actually led? What if Downton Abbey was full of Americans? What if, for some reason, I couldn't be creative and work? These are just a few of the "what ifs" that Shirley Maclaine considers in her new book written in the style of her beloved and laugh-out-loud memoir I'm Over All That. In What If . . . , she speculates on a wide range of matters, spiritual and secular, humorous and profound, earth-bound and high-flying, personal and universal. This is Shirley MacLaine at her most funny, acerbic, imaginative, and irresistible.

The boy detective : a New York childhood

August 5, 2014
Rosenblatt, Roger.
Thorndike, Maine : Center Point Large Print, [2014]
285 pages (large print) ; 23 cm
A story of the author's childhood in New York City. "Resisting the deadening silence of his family home in the elegant yet stiflingly safe neighborhood of Gramercy Park, nine-year-old Roger imagines himself a private eye in pursuit of criminals. With the dreamlike mystery of the city before him, he sets off alone, out into the streets of Manhattan, thrilling to a life of unsolved cases. Six decades later, Rosenblatt finds himself again patrolling the territory of his youth: The writing class he teaches has just wrapped up, releasing him into the winter night and the very neighborhood in which he grew up. A grown man now, he investigates his own life and the life of the city as he walks, exploring the New York of the 1950s; the lives of the writers who walked these streets before him, such as Poe and Melville; the great detectives of fiction and the essence of detective work; and the monuments of his childhood, such as the New York Public Library.
