In 1940s Los Angeles, an unidentified murder victim is found bisected in a shadowy lot. A catchy nickname is given her in jest—"The Virgin Tramp"—and suddenly a "nice little homicide that would have drifted off the front pages in a couple of days" becomes a storm center. Two brothers, Tom and Des Spellacy, are at the heart of this powerful novel of Irish-Catholic life in Southern California just after World War II. Played in the film version by Robert Duvall and Robert De Niro respectively, Tom is a homicide detective and Des is a priest on the rise within the Church. The murder investigation provides the background against which are played the ever changing loyalties of the two brothers. Theirs is a world of favors and fixes, power and promises, inhabited by priests and pimps, cops and contractors, boxers and jockeys and lesbian fight promoters and lawyers who know how to put the fix in. A fast-paced and often hilarious classic of contemporary fiction, True Confessions is about a crime that has no solutions, only victims. More important, it is about the complex relationship between Tom and Des Spellacy, each tainted with the guilt and hostility that separate brothers.

Twenty-seven pioneering thinkers share their discovery of and commitment to feminism in this essential collection. In a series of autobiographical reflections, the contributors to True Confessions, including Gayatri Spivak, Sandra M. Gilbert, Hortense Spillers, and Martha Nussbaum, among others, tell us what experiences ground their activism and how they confronted the dilemmas they faced in the course of their training and careers. Why do a family's religious practices captivate or repel girls grappling with their parents' faith? What happens when a lesbian graduate student assumes she must be closeted, or when a female professor encounters hostility from other women on the faculty, or when a feminist professor is accused of sexually harassing her graduate students? Susan Gubar has selected the most influential thinkers in the humanities to elucidate the origins as well as the consequences of their commitment to feminism and its institutionalization in higher education. This is an indispensable book for anyone who cares about the place of feminism in today's landscape.

Discover the brilliantly funny True Confessions of Margaret Hilda Roberts by Sue Townsend, 'the funniest person in the world' - Caitlin Moran, The Times Tuesday May 24th Had a lie in until 6am. Then got out of bed and had a brisk rub down with the pumice stone. I opened the curtains and saw that the sun was shining brightly.

She can't abide laziness, finds four hours of chemistry homework delightful and believes she is of royal birth - or at least destined for great things. But Margaret knows that good things never come to those who wait . . . These are the secret diary entries of a girl born into an ordinary life, yet who might just go on to become something really rather extraordinary, and she is brilliantly brought vividly to life by bestselling author Sue Townsend, Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades.

This book wrote itself, so to speak. For many years this author had maintained the attitude that the multifarious erotic experiences that are the subject of this book ought to remain in the minds of the participants, to be reawakened, revisited and enjoyed only by them. This instinctive assessment gradually morphed into a realization that there lies no shame in sharing one's sexual adventures with whoever cares to visit them and / or vicariously participate. The abiding caveat being, of course, to scrupulously maintain the privacy of the individuals who unwittingly share this largesse allowing for the enjoyment of countless third party participants. This book then is dedicated to those who venture to enjoy the erotic journeys of the senses. Are there those that do not ?

'Wonderfully funny and sharp as knives' Sunday Times In the third instalment of the hilarious Adrian Mole series, 16-year-old Adrian navigates his way into adulthood . . . Monday June 13th I had a good, proper look at myself in the mirror tonight. I've always wanted to look clever, but at the age of twenty years and three months I have to admit that I look like a person who has never even heard of Jung or Updike. Adrian Mole is an adult. At least that's what it says on his passport. But living at home, clinging to his threadbare cuddly rabbit 'Pinky', working as a paper pusher for the DoE and pining for the love of his life, Pandora, has proved to him that adulthood isn't quite what he expected. Still, without the slings and arrows of modern life what else would an intellectual poet have to write about . . . __________ 'Essential reading for Mole followers' Times Educational Supplement 'Townsend has held a mirror up to the nation and made us happy to laugh at what we see in it' Sunday Telegraph 'The funniest person in the world' Caitlin Moran
WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH… Join the PTA? Yes, according to Maggie, Barbara and Elizabeth. Because despite their differences—one is a recent widow; one is a late-in-life mother; and one is a supermom whose surprise pregnancy, she fears, will result in complications—all three women have one thing in common: their daughters. They’d do anything for them…. But is anything enough? Because one girl just can’t adjust, one is terrified to be alone—and one is the mystery blogger who’s wreaking havoc from one end of the student body to the other. Seems as if there are a lot of secrets in this small town. And despite the gossip, not a lot of talking going on….

True Confessions from a Wannabe Heel is a collection composed of memoir -themed personal essays in lyrical and mosaic styles touching on the themes of violence, wrestling, sexuality, love, mental health, and the significance of home. The essays are representative of my experiences growing up in an unstable home and how the effects of growing up in that environment shaped how I view the world around me. There are essays reflecting on how we perceive violence in the world, and how that violence has become more widely accepted, and how the line that we draw for what is acceptable seems to move with each trauma. The collection also explores the dynamics of marriage, the burdens we carry for those that we love, and the power of storytelling through a controlled lens, a theme highlighted by the strong focus on different wrestling storylines.
At almost 19 Adrian Mole is still concerned about his lunar complexion. He has generously agreed to share the pages of this book with two other well known, if less distinguished writers: Margaret Hilda Roberts, who at 14 has seen a fortune teller who has hinted what life may hold in store, and she was written to the king to enquire whether she is the rightful heir to the throne; and, Sue Townsend who contributes a collection of vivid and "candid" writings from home and abroad. Mad, funny and of course, true ...
