Whistling Girl
by Ann Marcus
Hardcover - 320 pages (November 1998)
Our price: $22.95

As cocreator and writer of the wild, groundbreaking soap Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, Ann Marcus didn't hold back--and that's still her style. Her new, ultra-dishy autobiography, Whistling Girl (Mulholland Pacific Publishing), chronicles her years as queen of the prime-time serials--she also wrote for Peyton Place, Knots Landing and Falcon Crest--but what really had us gasping were her no- holds-barred memories of writing Search For Tomorrow, Days of Our Lives and General Hospital. It's all here: paranoia, petty jealousies, office politics and angry stars. Marcus says she was verbally attacked in public by SFT leading lady Mary Stuart. She openly blames her firing at Days on the "plotting" of elderly cowriter Elizabeth Harrower, mother of the show's star, Susan Seaforth Hayes. Then there's the 1988 set-side intervention to help an alcoholic GH actress, whom Marcus doesn't name but does say is still on the show, making it very easy to do the math. Ouch! [-- Michael Logan, TV Guide]

Women and Soap Opera: A Cultural Feminist Perspective
by Dannielle Blumenthal
Hardcover (October 1997)
Our price: $49.95

Women's soap opera viewing has long been thought of by feminists and nonfeminists as an unproductive waste of time. Blumenthal takes the opposing view, arguing that women's "indulgence" in these programs is actually liberating. In overcoming the social opposition to the stigma attached to the feminine content and style, and engaging in soap opera viewing, women celebrate their femininity, particularly their gendered identification with romance, relationality, intuitiveness, talkativeness, and other aspects of emotionality. This book will be of interest to academics in the areas of sociology, women's studies, and media studies.

Consuming Pleasures: Active Audiences and Serial Fictions from Dickens to Soap Opera
by Jennifer Poole Hayward
Hardcover - 232 pages (November 1997)
Our price: $17.47

Hayward chooses four texts--Dickens's novel Our Mutual Friend (1864-65), Milton Caniff's comic strip Terry and the Pirates (1934-46), and the soap operas All My Children (1970-) and One Life to Live (1968-)--to represent the evolution of serial fiction as a genre, and to analyze the peculiar draw serials have upon their audiences. Although the serial has enjoyed great marketplace success, traditional literary and social critics have denounced its ties to mass culture, claiming it preys upon passive fans. But Hayward argues that active serial audiences have developed identifiable strategies of consumption, such as collaborative reading and attempts to shape the production process.

by Museum of Television, Radio, Ron Simon, Robert J. Thompson, Robert M. Batscha
Hardcover - 176 pages (October 1997)
Our price: $20.97

Exhaustively chronicling the life of the soap opera, Worlds Without End covers the form from its roots in radio up to the late '90s.

This heavily illustrated volume features behind-the-scenes production shots and cast photos from current popular soaps alongside cult and long-running serials from the past.

Jealousy and intrigue, on and off the set of a popular daytime soap opera. Celeste Talbert is the neurotic diva of "The Sun Also Sets," but her popularity with the show's fans does not extend to her relationships with her envious co-stars. Sultry Montana Moorehead has set her eyes on the soap's top spot, and she even offers to sleep with the show's nervous young producer if he'll have Celeste written off the program. In a moment of inspiration, the horny executive decides to bring Talbert's hated ex-lover, Jeffrey Anderson, back onto the series, with the hope of driving the fragile star to an early retirement. The fact that Anderson's character was decapitated in an earlier episode is seen as a difficult, but not insurmountable, obstacle. Stephen Nichols (Stefan, GH; Patch, DAYS) appears as himself in the film.
