The Perennial Freshman by George S. Whiteman

Reviews for The Perennial Freshman
by George S. Whiteman

Whiteman is a fantastic writer: witty, blunt, poetic, ironic. Heartbreaking and funny, this book is quite a trip!
Sandra Gulland, author, MISTRESS OF THE SUN and the Josephine B. trilogy
An insanely hilarious memoir out of Hollywood's Hollywood...a book to keep nearby for feeding the humor so often lacking in our lives.
Grady Harp, Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewer
How can you forget a guy like this? I had no idea he was a writer. His writing is as creative and scintillating as the rest of his talents and personality.

For many years I searched for George Whiteman, to no avail. I guess I was looking in the wrong places.

I remember him as being the most creative photographer and designer that I ever worked with and I often wished I could have worked with him again.

Alan Livingston at Mediarts Records sent me to George's house for the cover of the American Pie album. Everything was so new to me then.

The first thing George said was, ""Let me see your thumb. I'm going to paint it.""
After he painted my thumb and applied the star, he photographed what may be one of the most famous album covers ever.
Don McLean, Singer/Songwriter (American Pie)
...the man who painted Don McLean's thumb for the more than 'plum' cover of ""American Pie"" has just as much a hand at heart-catching phrases as he does an eye for riveting images. Whiteman describes harrowing events with humor and a wry adventurous twist.
Rebecca Kyle, Top 500 Amazon Reviewer

Shelfstealers independent book publisher and retailer

We’re a new kind of publisher, a place where you, our readers, are involved in virtually all stages of the publishing process.

If you're looking for a traditional publisher, we're not it. Most publishers focus on getting their books out to the consumer via physical and on-line bookstores. We'll be doing that, too, but since the publishing world is changing, we're focusing more on reaching our readers, up close and personal.
