Bargain @ $1.99 from Random House in Canada & the US:

The Deer Park by the late Norman Mailer (Wikipedia), his vintage 1955 satirical Hollywood literary novel which was apparently rejected by the original publisher for obscenity, leading to a lawsuit, according to its Wikipedia entry. It turns out there's a vintage 1950s-era New York Times review of it available at their website, if you're interested.

Amid the cactus wilds some two hundred miles from Hollywood lies a privileged oasis called Desert D’Or. It is a place for starlets, directors, studio execs, and the well-groomed lowlifes who cater to them. And, as imagined by Norman Mailer in this blistering classic, Desert D’Or is a moral proving ground, where men and women discover what they really want—and how far they are willing to go to get it. As Mailer traces their couplings and uncouplings, their uneasy flirtation with success and self-extinction, he creates a legendary portrait of America’s machinery of desire.

Also, if you happen to read French and have an interest in its 1950s-era literature and authors as well, there's a sale bargain from Hachette's Stock imprint's La Bleue line (reprinting modern francophone classics and adjacent material):

@ $5.99 CAD (probably discounted in other regions as well; other books in this line are $11+ CAD and Amazon CA lists this as a special on their French Kindle Books promo page), Je ne renie rien: Entretiens 1955-1992 by the late Françoise Sagan (Wikipedia), containing extensive interviews with the French novelist and playwright, best known for Bonjour Tristesse (Wikipedia), adapted into a classic film starring Deborah Kerr, David Niven, and Jean Seberg.

A couple of vintage bargains @ $1.99 from Open Road Media in Canada & the US (couponable/VIP discount-eligible @ Kobo, should be the same price in all the other stores):

Trouble in July by the late Erskine Caldwell (Wikipedia, Georgia Encyclopedia), apparently a notable early 20th century American literary figure, his vintage 1940 literary drama novel exploring racism in the US South.

A community lynches a wrongly accused man in Caldwell’s scathing indictment of Southern prejudice

When word spreads through Julie County that Sonny Clark, a black man, has assaulted Katy Barlow, a white woman, the man’s fate is sealed. With frightening speed, authorities and an outraged mob align to apprehend Clark and condemn him without trial. By the time Barlow confesses that no crime occurred, it is too late.

Told from the multiple perspectives of victim and victimizers as well as passive onlookers, Trouble in July depicts in harrowing detail the tragic ignorance of individuals who fail to understand their roles in a hateful miscarriage of justice.


The Small Rain by the late Madeleine L'Engle (ISFDB, Wikipedia), best known for her beloved YASF classic A Wrinkle in Time, is her very first novel from 1945 (Wikipedia), a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age literary novel starring her character Katherine Forrester who later appears in a few other novels where she meets some of the characters from L'Engle's Austin family and other works.

In the US @ Amazon only, her standalone 1946 novel Ilsa which was her 2nd novel (Wikipedia) and apparently mainly notable for having been out of print a long time, is also on sale for $1.99 and may or may not drop elsewhere, since ORM has an irritating habit of sometimes only having Amazon-exclusive US-exclusive sales. Kobo US linkage if you want to price-match.

ETA: Another L'Engle @ $1.99 in the US only, but available at Kobo: The Other Side of the Sun, a psychological family drama which stars the ancestors of one of the characters in Dragons in the Waters which is one of the adventures of the next-generation Murry & O'Keefe family members from AWIT.

IIRC, neither this particular Caldwell nor either of the L'Engles was part of ORM's giant giveaway, though YMMV upon checking your archives. All of these are enhanced with illustrated author biographies featuring rare photographs, etc., if you're interested in that kind of thing.

I'll recommend this one too , one of my favorites including " The World According to Garp " and "Cider House Rules " I don't think there ever was a movie made of the Twisted River book, but I could be wrong.

Not that I know of. But I would recommend the movies Simon Birch based on A Prayer For Owen Meany and, one of the best movies based on John Irving's work, The Door In The Floor, based on the first third of A Widow For One Year.

Sorry. Simon Birch is the name of the movie. It was based on A Prayer For Owen Meany. John Irving didn't think that book would work as a movie, so while he gave permission for the adaptation, he asked them to change the name. He came up with the name Simon Birch.

And The Door in the Floor is probably the best movie based on John Irving's work (though I did also enjoy Simon Birch, The World According to Garp and The Cider House Rules). Some critics said (gasp!) that the movie was better than the book.

Thanks for the links ! The soundtrack alone for Simon Birch would make me want to watch it. Love that time period. The movie looks terrific too.

I agree both movies were well done, The World According to Garp and The Cider House Rules. I'll have to watch The Door In The Floor as well.
