Exiles in Hollywood by David Wallace

Book Description

World War II saw the greatest ever flight of cultural and intellectual talent from Europe. This mass escape from the Nazi regime saw legends such as Greta Garbo and Igor Stravinsky leave their homelands and settle in America. Their presence - in Hollywood especially - enabled the evolution of film noir, and changed movie-making forever. In "Exiles in Hollywood", David Wallace profiles many of the refugees, including the filmmakers, Billy Wilder and Alfred Hitchcock, writers like Thomas Mann, and actors such as Garbo and Charles Laughton. The result is a rich, page-turning look at an era, its triumphs and tragedies, its gossip and hidden facts, and its colourful personalities.

Europe by David Wallace Europe, Hardback (April 2016)

The first of this two-volume edition brings together leading scholars to offer the first full-scale literary history of Europe. Spanning the period 1348-1418, the volumes demonstrate in unprecedented detail what the free movement of European literature achieved through its variety, local peculiarity, and regenerative power.

Emergent Multiverse by David Wallace Emergent Multiverse, Paperback (May 2014)

David Wallace argues that we should take quantum theory seriously as an account of what the world is like-which means accepting the idea that the universe is constantly branching into new universes. He presents an accessible but rigorous account of the 'Everett interpretation', the best way to make coherent sense of quantum physics.

It takes a strong woman to secure bookish remembrance in future times. The four fascinating Catholic women considered here - Dorothea of Montau (1347-1394), Margery Kempe of Lynn (c. 1373-c. 1440), Mary Ward of Yorkshire (1585-1645), and Elizabeth Cary of Drury Lane (c. 1585-1639) - shock, surprise, and court historical danger.
