The classic erotic memoir of an intense and haunting relationship that spawned the film.
This is a love story so unusual, so passionate, and so extreme in its psychology and sexuality that it takes the reader’s breath away. Unlike The Story of O, Nine and a Half Weeks is not a novel or fantasy; it is a true account of an episode in the life of a real woman.
Elizabeth McNeill was an executive for a large corporation when she began an affair with a man she met casually. From the beginning, their sexual excitement escalates through domination and humiliation. As the affair progresses, woman and man play out ever more dangerous and more elaborate sado-masochistic variations. By the end, she has relinquished all control over her body and mind.
With a cool detachment that makes the experiences and sensations she describes all the more frightening in their intensity, Elizabeth McNeill beautifully unfolds her story and invites you to experience the mesmerizing, electrifying, and unforgettablly private world of Nine and a Half Weeks.
The “refreshing . . . laugh-out-loud” #1 New York Times bestseller about life in the suburbs that was adapted into a classic film comedy (Kirkus Reviews). One day, Tony Award–winning playwright Jean Kerr packed up her four kids (and husband, Walter, one of Broadway’s sharpest critics), and left New York City. They moved to a faraway part of the world that promised a grassy utopia where daisies grew wild and homes were described as neo-gingerbread. In this collection of “wryly observant” essays, Kerr chronicles her new life in this strange land called Larchmont (TheWashington Post). It sounds like bliss—no more cramped apartments and nightmarish after-theater cocktail parties where the martinis were never dry enough. Now she has her very own washer/dryer, a garden, choice seats at the hottest new third-grade school plays (low overhead but they’ll never recoup their losses), and a fresh new kind of lunacy. In Please Don’t Eat the Daisies “Jean Kerr cooks with laughing gas” as she explores the everyday absurdities, anxieties, and joys of marriage, family, friends, home decorating, and maintaining a career—but this time with a garage! (Time).
My book is about me, my family, my four kids, my nieces and nephews, my boyfriends, my friends, and my church.
As a kid growing up, I did not know much about my life and following rules from others. I just did what I was told; whether it was right or wrong, I did it. I had no one to look up to other than Mom and Jesus. Jesus always led me in the right direction and the right way, and he still does. No matter what, I still remember what Mom used to say to me, Always pray to Jesus and trust in him. I am a very strong believer in Jesus. I do my best to love and help people. What would Jesus do?
My Kid Is an Asshole, and So Is My Dog
-- a comedic look at the drama of raising a teenage girl
I just returned from the mall after school shopping with my soon-to-be sophomore and her friend. I now understand why fathers opt to go camping, roll around in elk urine, and shit in a hole rather than go to the mall three days before school starts. As if the crowds weren't bad enough, my girl decided to wear a flannel that hung lower than her shorts, making it appear that she was walking around naked from the waist down.
She was flocked by sales people, who, I am sure, were calculating their commissions in their heads. I mean, why not? Everybody wants to help the girl who arrives pant-less. Obviously, she needs clothes.
We're not home half an hour and the vodka I poured for myself is only half gone when she yells down from her room, "Mom, have you seen my push up bra? Maybe we need to go back to the mall."
It's the moments like these where I'm convinced raising a teen is bullshit, and I wonder if we'll ever come out on the other side even speaking to one another. Pass the vodka.
There aren't enough warnings in the world for raising teenage girls. Although my mom swears my daughter takes after me, so it's karma.
Is it karma that I've got two barking dogs? It must be. Have you ever heard a shiu-tzu bark? I have. Over and over. They think they're coyotes. I swear. And right now, they're wrestling over some stuffed animal, which is surely about to fling open, so I can pick up little beads all over the carpet while drinking my vodka. No wait. They stopped. One of them had to drag its ass across the floor. Epic.
It's in the little moments where I earn my parenting badges—the faded stretch marks.
If this is my karma for being such an asshole to my mom, maybe we can get through this too. And if she pays attention in English, instead of scouting for a prom date, she can learn to write her own book—the sequel to this: My Mom Is an Asshole, but Not My Dog.
Meet the real Freddie Mercury, the iconic vocalist of Queen who died in 1991.
We make contact through Sussan Evermore (the host) who connects to him via a process called channeling. Channeling is a process that allows Freddie to use the hosts vocabularly to express himself. Freddie discusses his friends, life, loves and sexuality. He speaks honesty about his world of life in the physical world.This is more than a discussion with the real Freddie Mercury, it is an understanding of the process of life and death from someone who has passed through it, enjoy.
Ronald Ritter & Sussan Evermore
For over twenty years, Freddie Mercury reigned supreme as the frontman and leading light of one of the biggest, most exciting and best-selling bands in British musical history. From their debut in 1973 to the release of their final studio album in 1991, the year of Freddie's death, Queen charted forty-one Top 40 singles, including three Number Ones. Throughout this hugely successful time there was Freddie Mercury: extrovert, flamboyant, wowing each successive audience with his superb vocals and his unique showmanship. Based on exclusive interviews with his close friends, fellow musicians and lovers, best-selling author David Bret traces the spectacular life of this rock icon, from his obscure youth in a remote part of India to his final, courageous battle against AIDS~the terrible disease that robbed the world of one of its greatest stars.
