    “A lively debut biography of the flamboyant Irish writer . . . focusing on the women who loved and supported him” (Kirkus Reviews).   In this essential work, Eleanor Fitzsimons reframes Oscar Wilde’s story and his legacy through the women in his life, including such scintillating figures as Florence Balcombe; actress Lillie Langtry; and his tragic and witty niece, Dolly, who, like Wilde, loved fast cars, cocaine, and foreign women. Fresh, revealing, and entertaining, full of fascinating detail and anecdotes, Wilde’s Women relates the untold story of how a beloved writer and libertine played a vitally sympathetic role on behalf of many women, and how they supported him in the midst of a Victorian society in the process of changing forever.   “Fitzsimons reminds us of the many writers, actresses, political activists, professional beauties and aristocratic ladies who helped shape the life and legend of the era’s greatest wit, esthete and sexual martyr . . . provide[s] a potted biography of the multitalented writer and gay icon . . . highly enjoyable.” —The Washington Post   “Fitzsimons brilliantly calls attention to the progressive ideas and beliefs which drew the most daring and interesting women of the time to his side. The depth and painstaking care of Fitzsimons’ research is a fitting tribute to Wilde’s fascinating life and exquisite writing—and really, what better compliment is there than that?” —High Voltage

    The remarkable life and culinary career of the Martha Stewart of World War–era Britain.   Dorothy Peel played a key role in creating wartime recipes for householders and was awarded an OBE in 1918 for services to the Ministry of Food. In this fascinating book, Vicky Straker explores the social history and cultural background behind Dorothy’s creations, and the effect of rationing during the First World War. Using extracts from her autobiography, and many other books, we are given a unique insight into the life of Dorothy Peel and a new perspective on the period. Her witty, poignant, and informative comments reveal a woman with a genuine social conscience, who was in many ways ahead of her time.   Written in a light and accessible style, Bicycles, Bloomers and Great War Rationing Recipes reveals how society changed during the First World War, when rationing put a strain on every kitchen in the country. Many of Dorothy’s recipes are featured in their original form, such as the long forgotten Devilled Bananas and wartime Potato Gateau. Other mouth-watering recipes include Chicken en Casserole, Cheese Pufflets, and some delicious tea-time treats such as Feather Tart and Candied Pears. Vicky Straker has tried and tested recipes from Dorothy’s cookery books, and where appropriate amended them to suit modern tastes.   “Superb biography, and some really interesting recipes to try!” —Books Monthly

    911:5 MInutes to Midnight?

    I am a man standing on a speeding train. You are standing on the platform. If I reach out my hand to you, at least one of us is going to get hurt. This book, and my ‘911:five minutes to midnight’ are my attempt to ‘bring you up to speed’. Until you have read this book, your mind will be closed to the very important message many people are trying to share with you at this critical moment.
     
    This book explains what 911 really means. What happened. Who did what when. And why. It then places 911 in the context of the New World Order, Zionism, Central Banking, and the ‘shadow government’ that has been playing us all for fools for so long. This is probably your best chance at understanding what is going on. This is probably your last chance to change the course of events. Please make sure you read this as soon as you can, and get your friends to read it too. You could spend months searching for this information, and then years trying to ‘join the dots’. It has taken me decades to get to the stage where I can present the truth to anyone who is intellectually able, but more importantly, emotionally willing, to accept the truth. The whole truth may yet elude us, but I have presented enough of it to justify a compelling and urgent call to be put out to anyone who still believes in the idea of personal freedom, democracy, and justice. I have included compressed versions of the Old and New Testaments, ‘Mein Kampf’, and ‘The Protocols of The Elders of Zion’ so that you can place the current events in perspective. Once you understand how the U.S petro-dollar and Central Banking function, and how they tricked us all on 911, me included, you will be outraged at how the mass media have duped us all.
