Just's previous novel, which pays homage to Henry James in its title, ''The American Ambassador,'' he was able to take such superficially familiar characters as an Establishment ambassadorial couple and their terrorist son, and, showing them in a morass of private and public loyalties, make the former attractive and the latter at least somewhat understandable. A fine, clean, sturdy hard cover first edition with light shelf wear; hinges and binding tight, paper cream white. I bought a pack of Bicycle cards and ran back. In a fine, unclipped dustwrapper. He had the star part in 1955 , a remake of and was cast by in two star parts: 1955 from the play by , as a Hollywood star; and 1956 , as a tough soldier in World War Two. Tony Berg: Did 19 years with Macquarie Bank, the last nine as managing director before he took the top job at Boral, but failed to deliver.

He is the author of 15 novels and numerous short stories. The book's eponymous protagonist is first seen as a young man vacationing on the lakes near Chicago. The villain in this story, if there can be said to be one, is Gance's brother, who stays clean by distancing himself from anyone in trouble. Whatever Washingtonians may produce for export during the high season, you don't really believe they spend their time pondering the Pledge of Allegiance, do you?

Palance appeared in two plays in 1948 which had short runs, A Temporary Island and The Vigil. It is the tension between public duty and private conscience that animates much of his fiction, including Forgetfulness. My favorite portions of the story were those set in Chicago and its suburbs.

He guest starred on and the episodes were released as a film, 1967. They were frayed cards, held together with Scotch tape. Fixit'' who can swing electionswho climbs from Chicago's wards to cushy Washington jobs from the 1960s through the '80s.

Ahrens family: With the steel industry booming, this 100-year-old Adelaide-based is thriving through its engineering and steel fabrication business that employs 200 staff. Until 2004, friendly societies were able to own as many chemists as they wanted in Victoria. Ray Allsop: Has developed dozens of townhouses and high rise residential buildings on the Gold Coast. Sam Bombardier: An Italian Australian who by the 1980s had amassed a property portfolio of 135 commercial buildings and about 150 residential homes in Melbourne and Sydney, all of which he owned outright. He is not only the most literary chronicler of the daily lives and moral dilemmas of contemporary politicians, bureaucrats, intelligence agents, military officers, diplomats, lawyers and journalists, but one of the few novelists even interested in depicting such people realistically.
