Mrs. Flax was happiest when she was leaving a place, but I wanted to stay put long enough to fall down crazy and hear the Word of God. I always called my mother Mrs. Flax. So begins this extraordinary first novel about one wild year in the life of 14-year-old Charlotte Flax, when she and her sister Kate move with Mrs. Flax into a sleepy 1960´s Massachusetts town. Mrs. Flax is a woman who wears polka-dot dresses and serves hors d´oeuvres for dinner every night, and Kate is a child who basically wants to be a fish. And then there´s Charlotte, who in Patty Dann´s hands, is transformed into a young woman of infinite whim and variety. Charlotte´s main ambition in life is to become a saint, preferably martyred, though she´s Jewish. She´s smitten with the shy young caretaker at the convent at the top of the hill. Dann has created a young girl who accepts the unkindness of the mad universe in which she´s whirling and takes it on with a savage glee. Charlotte Flax is like no one you have ever met - and someone you know very well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elizabeth Evans.

Marilyn Monroe died under suspicious circumstances on the night of August 4, 1962. In The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed, renowned MM expert Jay Margolis and New York Times best-selling author Richard Buskin finally lay to rest more than 50 years of wild speculation and misguided assertions by actually naming the screen goddess´s killer. At the same time, they use the testimony of eyewitnesses to describe exactly what took place inside her house on Fifth Helena Drive in Los Angeles´s Brentwood neighborhood. Implicating Bobby Kennedy in the commission of Monroe´s murder, this is the first book to name the LAPD officers who accompanied the attorney general to her home, provide details about how the Kennedys used bribes to silence one of the ambulance drivers, and specify how the subsequent cover-up was aided by a noted pathologist´s outrageous lies. This blockbuster volume blows the lid off the world´s most notorious and talked-about celebrity death, and in the process also exposes the third gunman in the pantry who delivered the fatal bullet to the back of RFK´s head - and the third gunman´s female accomplice who, until now, has only been known to the LAPD and the FBI as ´´the girl in the polka-dot dress´´. 1.
