Believe me : a memoir of love, death, and jazz chickens by Eddie Izzard( Book )
11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 990 libraries worldwide
"Critically acclaimed, award-winning British comedian and actor Eddie Izzard details his childhood, his first performances on the streets of London, his ascent to worldwide success on stage and screen, and his comedy shows which have won over audiences around the world. Over the course of a thirty-year career, Eddie Izzard has proven himself to be a creative chameleon, inhabiting the stage and film and television screen with an unbelievable fervour. Born in Yemen, and raised in Ireland, Wales and post-war England, he lost his mother at the age of six. In his teens, he dropped out of university and took to the streets of London as part of a two-man escape act; when his partner went on vacation, Izzard kept busy by inventing a one-man act, and thus a career was ignited. As a stand-up comedian, Izzard has captivated audiences with his surreal, stream-of-consciousness comedy. As a self-proclaimed Executive Transvestite, Izzard broke the mold performing in full make-up and heels and has become as famous for his advocacy for LGBT rights as he has for his art. Writing with the same candour and razor-sharp insight evident in his comedy, he reflects on a childhood marked by unutterable loss, sexuality and coming out, as well as a life in show business, politics, and philanthropy. Honest and generous, Izzard's Believe Me is an inspired account of a very singular life thus far."--Provided by publisher

True love doesn't just happen, notes professional matchmaker Patti Novak. You have to work for it--and want it. Forget speed dates or online dating sites with twenty-page questionnaires. The fact that you share likes and dislikes is great, but it won't mean a thing if you don't feel that zing. And before the first date, you need to get over yourself! Finding your one and only is about being true to yourself, being vulnerable, and being ready for love. Taking a tough-love approach, and in her signature straight-shooting style, Patti will show you how to fix what needs to be fixed, reach your core, and identify who you are and what you want in a partner. Whether you're new to the dating scene, divorced and looking, or just trying to reach that second date, this book will help you get the love you've always wanted--and deserve.--From publisher description

Hanndyr by Laura Zigman( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in Bokmal, Norwegian and held by 1 library worldwide
Romanen "Hanndyr" er av forlaget beskrevet som en fornøyelig urban komedie. Hovedpersonen Jane Goodall blir besatt av å finne svaret på hvorfor den perfekte Ray svek henne. Hva skjedde egentlig? Da snubler hun tilfeldig over "ny-ku-teorien" i en avis. Og mens hun leser om hvordan tingene forholder seg der nede i fjøset, er det som om brikkene faller på plass. For i fjøset nekter nemlig oksen å parre seg med en ku mer enn én gang. Han vil simpelthen ikke ha gammel ku. Han vil ha ny ku. Hver gang. Jane Goodall er blitt gammel ku. Hennes Ray, som sa han elsket henne og som hun skulle flytte sammen med, har forlatt henne for aldri mer å komme tilbake. Det er den uhyrlige sannhet. Jane var opprinnelig en ny ku, den gang Ray med sin uimotståelige sjarm startet sin beiling. Da fremsto ny-ku-Jane som en urban, singel, attraktiv New York-kvinne på 30 år. Jane flytter inn på madrassen i en hule av en hybel hos Eddie - jobbens ubestridte Don Juan. Med Eddie deler hun ikke annet enn whiskyen, men her får Jane en mulighet til å studere hanndyrets erotiske erobringer på nært hold. Og sammen med en venninne klekker hun etter hvert ut en fornøyelig hevn. Over.: Torleif Sjøgren-Erichsen. Forhåndsomtale. 2000
