In remembrance of John Cazale, on the 40th anniversary of his death, a new edition of A Small Perfection, with a greatly expanded timeline of the career of John Cazale. He is acting's best kept secret. John Cazale has the best filmography in motion picture history. From 1972 through 1978, he appeared in five masterpieces. But, his performances in them were masterpieces as well. He created stunning portraits of some of the most compelling characters in movie history, including Fredo in "The Godfather Parts I and II" and Sal in "Dog Day Afternoon." A favorite co-star of Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Robert DeNiro, and many others, John has influenced generations of actors. Jonjo Powers reflects on John Cazale and the lessons he teaches all actors through his astonishing work. Each of his five performances are examined and the lessons extracted. Questions are asked about each character that reflect John's exceptional depth of genius. A guide for actors and movie lovers alike, that recalls one of acting's greatest practitioners. Writer and director Israel Horovitz, a frequent collaborator and close friend of John Cazale, offers the foreword to this reflection on his friend's greatest works.

Change the way you look at office supplies forever with this wonderfully enlightening and quirky exploration of the fascinating backstories of everyday objects, such as the humble and perfectly designed paper clip and the utilitarian, irreplaceable pencil. How many of humanity’s brightest ideas started out on a scrap of paper or in the margins of a notebook? In a delightfully witty and fresh voice, James Ward—cofounder of the Boring Conference and collector of the arcane—explores the secret histories of deskbound supplies, from pencils to fluorescent ink, and the gleaming reams of white paper we all take for granted, encouraging a deeper appreciation and fascination for the things that surround us each day. In the spirit of The Evolution of Useful Things and A History of the World in 100 Objects, Ward transforms the mundane into remarkable stories of invention, discovery, and even awe. The Perfection of the Paper Clip is “a hugely entertaining experience for the reader…this engaging book is an absolute must” (Booklist).
