There's no business like show business

Here's a trio of showbiz books for sale:
This is a neat little collection of celebrity portraits that John Lahr, son of the late great Bert Lahr, wrote for the New Yorker. The ones I had not already read in the New Yorker, I read in this collection. I'm offering it for $10.

Many consider the Hustons to be the first family of contemporary Hollywood and I'd be hard pressed to disagree with them. This engrossing biography of the Huston family is on sale for $12.
There's nothing quite like this acid tinged portrait of Hollywood in the early to mid '70's that the late Julia Phillips wrote about in this now classic book. She lived through producing with Spielberg, fighting with Truffaut, and doing lots of drugs. This lively hilarious book is on sale for $12.
