Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga
“Stop feeding me bullshit. Tell me the truth.” —Lady Gaga, 2009 “I hate the truth. I hate the truth so much I prefer a giant dose of bullshit any day over the truth.” —Lady Gaga, 2010 In little over a year, Stefani Germanotta, a struggling performer in New York’s Lower East Side burlesque scene, has become the global demographic-smashing pop icon known as Lady Gaga. She is a once-in-a-decade artist, a gifted singer, composer, designer, and performance artist who mixes high and low culture, the avant-garde with the accessible, authenticity with artifice. Who is Lady Gaga? She is a twenty-four-year-old woman whose stage mantra—“I’m a free bitch!”—is the polar opposite of who she is offstage: isolated, insecure, and unable to be alone. She is an outrÃ© artist who wanted to be a sensitive singer-songwriter, whose musical heroes include Britney Spears, Billy Joel, and Bruce Springsteen. She is a woman who says no man can ever compete with her career, but who still isn’t over the ex-boyfriend who said she was too ambitious. She claims not to care what people think, but spends her downtime online, reading what people have to say about her. She claims to be a con artist and utterly authentic. She is never less than compelling.Based on over fifty original interviews with friends, employees, rivals, and music industry veterans, Poker Face is the first in-depth biography of the extraordinary cultural phenomenon that is Lady Gaga. Quotes from POKER FACE: “It’s a privilege to be here tonight to open for Lady Gaga. I’ve made it.”—President Barack Obama, October 2009 “I remember thinking, `That could be her. But I hope it’s not.’”—Producer Rob Fusari “Her `crazy’ outfit was putting suspenders on her jeans.” —former classmate “She is perfectly, almost genetically engineered to be a twenty-first-century pop star.” —Eric Garland, CEO, BigChampagne.com “If you looked at her, you’d think she was a jam band chick. She had a heady, grimy vibe.” —former NYU classmate Jon Sheldrick “She’s not progressive, but she’s a good mimic. She sounds more like me than I f—-ing do!” —Singer/rapper M.I.A. “You won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the f—-ing deli without hearing or seeing me.” —Lady Gaga to an ex-boyfriend, 2008

The Southwest Expedition of Jedediah Smith: His Personal Account of the Journey to California, 1826-1827
Jedediah S. Smith was to western exploration what Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison were to the world of invention—a legendary figure kiting into the unknown, a lighter of the dark. No one did more to open the American West than this mountain man. His greatest exploring expedition came in 1826 when he looked to the Southwest for trapping grounds. Jedediah Smith’s route ran, in modern terms, from Soda Springs in Idaho to the Great Salt Lake, southward across Utah, along the Colorado River to the Mojave Desert, and westward to California. When he reached the San Gabriel mission there, he could claim to be the first American to have gone overland through the Southwest. Then Smith marched northward through the San Joaquin Valley and, with two companions, embarked across the Great Basin. In traveling to the rendezvous of 1827 they became the first citizens of the United States ever to cross the Sierra eastbound and the Great Basin.That is the itinerary described in The Southwest Expedition of Jedediah S. Smith, which contains the mountain man’s long-lost journals. After coming to light in 1967, they were edited by George R. Brooks and published in a limited edition a decade later. This Bison Book reprint brings a scarce historical record to a wider audience.
