By Ray Saadi — Book Editor



By James Edward Deeds JR. (Princeton Architectural Press $29.95

This is a remarkable book, not only for the fact that the pencil and crayon drawings were made by 26-year-old Deeds confined to a mental hospital for life. Deeds had no training in art and not even paint, palette or inks. He drew what he remembered and what he imagined on hospital ledger sheets.  Remarkable, too, that a 14-year-old boy rescued the drawings from a thrash heap. 



A Memoir By A. E. Hotchner (St. Martin’s Press $19.99)

Hotchner, an acclaimed writer in his own right, has only now put in writing details of his close friendship with famous author, Hemingway. For over a decade he noted details of Hemingway’s life and loves as they met, ate, drank and caroused, all the while hearing stories from the mater himself. It’s a fascinating and intimate portrait of one of the greatest writers of our time.
