Explanation of the Book:

Rue McClanahan, best known for her portrayal of Blanche Devereaux on the Emmy-award winning series The Golden Girls reveals her life in and out of the spotlight in a laugh-out-loud funny memoir about love, marriage, men, and getting older that is every bit as colorful as the characters she played. Raised in small-town Oklahoma in a house “thirteen telephone poles past the standpipe north of town,” Rue developed her two great passions—theater and men—at an early age. She arrived in New York City in 1957 with two-weeks worth of money in her pocket, hustled her way into a class with the legendary Uta Hagen, and began working her way up in the acting world against the vibrant, free-spirited backdrop of the sixties. That’s when she met and married Husband #1—a handsome rogue of an aspiring actor who quickly left her with a young son. Still, she was determined to make it on the stage and screen—and in the years that followed, rose to the top of the entertainment world with a host of adventures (and husbands) along the way. From her roles on Broadway opposite Dustin Hoffman and Brad Davis, to her first television appearances on Maude and All in the Family, to the Golden Girls era and beyond, My First Five Husbands is the irresistible story of one woman’s quest to find herself. Rue is proof that many things can and do get better with age—and that, if she keeps her wits about her, even a small-town girl can make it big. People always ask me if I'm like Blanche. And I say, 'Well, Blanche was an oversexed, self-involved, man-crazy, vain Southern Belle from Atlanta—and I'm not from Atlanta!’” —Rue McClanahan

Explanation of the Book:

If you’re looking for the ultimate Golden Girls trivia book then this is not the book for you and you should probably look somewhere else. Same if you’re looking for a summary of each episode, interviews with the cast, gossip from backstage, or anything factual or related to any sort of biographical or informative type of work. But, if you’re looking for a fun and silly memoir that lovingly chronicles how the wit, wisdom, and storylines of the Golden Girls television show can touch our lives THEN this IS the book for YOU. We've been told that everything we need to know about life can be found in the lessons of kindergarten, Little Golden Books, or from the Twilight Zone. In truth, while those sources make great points, the real lessons of life can be found by hanging out with The Golden Girls. For over thirty years the wit and wisdom of those four sassy broads has withstood the test of time and brought to us not only a blueprint for living well, but also the knowledge we need to do good (in bed if Blanche has anything to do it) and be good (also in bed) as well as vivacious, strong, and fierce (those are both in bed and out of bed). This collection of anecdotes is replete with musings on life, death, love, and the many Italian dishes of Sophia Petrillo. Through the lens of one of the best shows ever to be on television (well, it's no T.J. Hooker, but c'mon, what is?) we go on a journey with the author that is both personal and amusing. The author engages us by relating the virtues and moral ideas gleaned from the show to incidents and characters from her own life. Personal narratives that include: the required endurance needed to be married to an Englishman (they're crazy, if you don't believe me, ask the Queen... I bet she has tales to tell about ol' Phillip), how to date ex-convicts when you don't know you are (seriously, this happened), and even life with a family that includes murderers and drug dealers (same person, but I have to make this exciting). All of this along with a back drop that includes tales from Miami in the 80s.So, grab your shoulder pads, a box of condoms, your St. Olaf yearbook, and a bucket of marinara and relax the one book guaranteed to change your life - even if the only change is having lost a few hours of it to the nonsense in these pages. Or, as the girls would teach us - grab life by the ziti, love each other to the fullest, and never give up on ourselves or our sex lives.

Explanation of the Book:

The innermost core-the veritable heart-of the teachings of Jesus, is the message of service and square-dealing, which means that it is, uncontrovertibly, one of human brotherhood. All this has been said before, you say. To be sure it has. But it is falling today, as never before, on listening ears.-from "Service: Human and Divine"An unusual business and spiritual autobiography, this 1923 book is American Midwestern entrepreneur Arthur Nash's life story, from his birth in post-Civil War Indiana and his upbringing amidst a confused religious environment to his embrace of Christianity and his building of a successful Cincinnati clothing company upon the laws of kindness and fellowship espoused by Jesus. A prominent Freemason, Nash, who died in 1927, dedicated his life to the idea of human achievement fueled by a higher power, and this heartfelt work embraces and celebrates that philosophy.
