Heralded for writing “deeply memorable . . . women” (Jennifer Senior, New York Times), Nicole Dennis-Benn introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine for our times: the eponymous Patsy, who leaves her young daughter behind in Jamaica to follow Cicely, her oldest friend, to New York. Beating with the pulse of a long-withheld confession and peppered with lilting patois, Patsy gives voice to a woman who looks to America for the opportunity to love whomever she chooses, bravely putting herself first. But to survive as an undocumented immigrant, Patsy is forced to work as a nanny, while back in Jamaica her daughter, Tru, ironically struggles to understand why she was left behind. Greeted with international critical acclaim from readers who, at last, saw themselves represented in Patsy, this astonishing novel “fills a literary void with compassion, complexity and tenderness” (Joshunda Sanders, Time), offering up a vital portrait of the chasms between selfhood and motherhood, the American dream and reality.

Patsy

Patsy

Who Is Patsy? ...and how does he know so much about everyone? How does he always manage to be in the right place at the right time...even though he's in a wheelchair? Patsy's an enigma for sure, but the answer to the mystery of who...or what...he is may be right in front of you--if only you know how to see it. That's what Patsy is all about: Seeing life for what it really is. And what it really is just might surprise and delight you. Mildred Marshall Maiorino takes you on an amazing journey of discovery, into realms of reality that are only slightly beyond the horizon or as close as the flicker at the corner of your eye. Learn Patsy's secret, and in doing so, maybe learn a little (or a lot) about yourself. --Laren Bright Laren Bright is an Emmy nominated and award winning writer who has spent years in helping businesses, authors and self-published authors provide sparkling promotional text.

Patsy Cline

Patsy Cline

For years, rumors have circulated about the identity of country music legend Patsy Cline's real father. In Patsy Cline: Our Father's Other Daughter, Charlotte Brannon Bartles breaks her silence and reveals the long-awaited truth. Charlotte's father, Chester Brannon, was also Patsy's father. Learn about Patsy's other family and the man she called Pop Brannon. Charlotte shares her memories of her famous half-sister and also talks about her efforts to penetrate the wall of secrecy surrounding the circumstances of Patsy's birth and her father's relationship with Patsy's mother, Hilda Hensley. Patsy Cline: Our Father's Other Daughter is the chapter of Patsy's life absent from all the other books and articles written about the late megastar. 'The true story will alter Patsy's official biography and will be difficult for some to accept. But I think the truth should prevail over someone's comfort level and the need to keep her life story 'as is." It should be a consolation to Patsy's fans to know that Patsy knew a father who loved and adored her, regardless of how limited his role had been." From Patsy Cline: Our Father's Other Daughter

The Hal Roach Comedy Shorts Of Thelma Todd Zasu Pitts And Patsy Kelly

The Hal Roach Comedy Shorts Of Thelma Todd Zasu Pitts And Patsy Kelly

Hoping to follow his Laurel and Hardy success with a female comedy team, producer Hal Roach paired Thelma Todd with ZaSu Pitts in a 1931 series of two-reel shorts. Pitts left the studio for other pursuits, was replaced by Patsy Kelly and the series continued to be successful. Todd died under mysterious circumstances in 1935 and Kelly tried to carry on, first with Pert Kelton, then with Lyda Roberti. When Roberti died in 1938, the series ended. This book takes the first film-by-film look at each of the comedies these women made, how they responded to different directors and how production adapted to changes along the way. Credits, production information, period reviews, and critical assessments are included.
