A parlor maid upends the lives of an aristocratic family in prewar England in this “entertaining” novel by aNew York Times–bestselling author (Kirkus Reviews). Cluny Brown has committed an unforgivable sin: She refuses to know her place. Last week, she took herself to tea at the Ritz. Then she spent almost an entire day in bed eating oranges. To teach her discipline, her uncle, a plumber who has raised the orphaned Cluny since she was a baby, sends her into service to be a parlor maid at one of England’s stately manor houses. At Friars Carmel in Devonshire, Cluny meets her employers: Sir Henry, the quintessential country squire, and Lady Carmel, who oversees the management of her home with unruffled calm. Their son, Andrew, newly returned from abroad with a Polish émigré writer friend, is certain that the world is once again on the brink of war. Then there’s Andrew’s beautiful fiancée and the priggish pharmacist. While everyone around her struggles to keep pace with a rapidly changing world, Cluny continues to be Cluny, transforming the lives of those around her with her infectious zest for life.

Mais pour qui se prend donc Cluny Brown ? Effrontée, pétillante et décontractée, la jeune fille se soucie comme d'une guigne des conventions dans une Angleterre des années 30 encore corsetée par les traditions. Pour Cluny, une chose est sûre : la vraie vie est ailleurs... mais reste à savoir où ! La redécouverte littéraire d'une auteure culte au style irrésistiblement british. Délicieuse comédie so british sur l'émancipation des femmes, critique espiègle de l'Angleterre des années 1930 engoncée dans son carcan moral, Les Aventures de Cluny Brown, ou quand une femme de chambre aussi délurée qu'attachante fait fi de toutes les conventions pour former un couple improbable avec un fantasque intellectuel polonais fuyant les nazis. ​Surprenante création d'un auteur par ailleurs connu pour sa série jeunesse Bernard et Bianca, Les Aventures de Cluny Brown font l'objet d'un véritable culte en Angleterre et ont été adaptées au cinéma par Ernst Lubitsch en 1946. Un concentré d'humour et d'impertinence à redécouvrir sans plus attendre.

The distinguished film career of Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Jones (1919-2009) is thoroughly chronicled from her faltering start as Phylis Isley (her real name) at Republic Studios in 1939, to her re-invention as a major star by producer David O. Selznick, the actress' second husband. Each of her 24 films--among them The Song of Bernadette, Since You Went Away, Duel in the Sun, Portrait of Jennie, Madame Bovary and Love Is a Many Splendored Thing--is discussed in depth. Robert Osborne, host of the Turner Classic Movies cable channel, affectionately recalls his interview with Jennife.

When movie lovers speak of the "Lubitsch touch," they refer to a singular sense of style and taste, humor and humanity, that suffused the films of one of Hollywood's greatest directors. In this first ever full-length biography of Ernst Lubitsch, Scott Eyman takes readers behind the scenes of such classic films as Trouble in Paradise (1932), The Merry Widow (1934), Bluebeard's Eighth Wife (1938), Ninotchka (1939), The Shop around the Corner (1940), To Be or Not to Be (1942), and Heaven Can Wait (1943), which together constitute one of the most important and influential bodies of work in Hollywood. Eyman examines both the films Lubitsch crafted and the life he lived—his great successes and his overwhelming anxieties—to create an indelible portrait of Hollywood's Golden Age and one of its most respected artists.
