An Inspector Calls

by J B Priestley


“Two hours ago a young woman died in the Infirmary...she’d swallowed a lot of strong disinfectant. Burnt her inside out...”



Arthur Birling, a prosperous manufacturer, is holding a family dinner party to celebrate his daughter’s engagement.

Under interrogation, every member of the family turns out to have a shameful secret which links them with her death.
An Actor Prepares

An Actor Prepares

by Constantin Stanislavski

An Actor Prepares was first published in 1936 and is the first volume of the translations of Constantin Stanislavski's books on acting, which were published as a trilogy in English, though originally meant to be published as two books in Russia. "An Actor Prepares" was initially meant to be the first half of a volume on the inner preparation of an actor, while the second half (later published in English as "Building a Character") was meant to cover the outside work on the actor.
Hollywood Babylon

Hollywood Babylon

by Kenneth Anger

Hollywood Babylon is a book by avant-garde filmmaker Kenneth Anger which details the sordid scandals of many famous and infamous Hollywood denizens from the 1900s to the 1950s. First published in the US in 1965, it was banned ten days later and would not be republished until 1975. Upon its second release, the New York Times said of it, "If a book such as this can be said to have charm, it lies in the fact that here is a book without one single redeeming merit."
