            A Political Biography of Sarah Fielding provides the most complete discussion of Fielding's works and career currently available. Tracing the development of Fielding's artistic and instructive agendas from her earliest publications forward, Johnson presents a compelling portrait ...of a deeply read author who sought to claim a place within literary culture for women's experiences. As a practical didacticist, Fielding sought to teach her readers to live happier, more fulfilling lives by appropriating and at times resisting the texts that defined their culture. While Fielding often retreats from the overtly political concerns that captured the attention of her contemporaries, her works are daring forays into the public sphere that both challenge and reinforce the foundations of British society. Giving voice to those who have been marginalized, Fielding's creative productions are at once conservative and radical, revealing her ambiguous appreciation for tradition, her fears of modernity, and her abiding commitment to women who must live within forever imperfect worlds.

            Tell the truth till it hurts. - Daniel Curzon This lucid and chatty book is perceptive, wry, and penetrating to the last drop of bile. - Robert Patrick Angry, bitter, with chips on both shoulders, Daniel Curzon is also ferociously honest and very funny. - Ian Young He has been ev...erywhere, he has met everyone, and now that he has your attention, he is going to let you know exactly what he has been thinking about them all these years. The result is a blunt, hilarious, page-turning ride that is, to use the cliche, impossible to put down. - Philip ClarkDROPPING NAMES - The Delicious Memoirs of Daniel Curzon, chronicles the author's encounters with dozens and dozens of gay and/or gay-hating figures in American literature and theatre from the early nineteen sixties very nearly to the present. The bulk of the many short pieces was written in 1986, and is followed by copious updates on most of the people named.

            This book is about two outstanding novelists. Ernest Miller Hemingway is one of the most interesting characters you will ever read about in your life. After reaching the age of being able to join the war effort his journeys in life only had begun. He traveled everywhere with excu...ses to write. He loved big game hunting and large fishing expeditions and to brag about his many catches and hunts. His bragging was so big that everyone knew he had to be lying. Hemingway predicted at a young age that he would commit suicide like his father. Suicide ran rampant in the Hemingway family. You will find in the book why the Hemingways all committed suicide. Samuel Clemens, Mark Twain, whatever name you want to call him, was a complex individual who was moody and had a dark side but never showed it to his audience because he needed their buy-in for him to make money. When he worked as a riverboat captain, he saw how the rich and famous lived. He thought he would like that kind of life. Inside you'll read about Ernest's Birth and Younger Years Ernest, WWI and Pauline Pfeiffer Ernest's Unconsummated Love Affair Ernest's Challenges with Mental Issues Mark Twain. A Premature Baby Who Had a Lot to Say Mark Twain. All He Knew Was Work Mark Twain. Sam & His Women Mark Twain. On Religion and Politics And much more!When it came to Hemingway's collection of six-toed cats, he was a bowl of jelly. He melted like butter and spoke softly and cuddled them like they were all royalty. His cats never had to want for anything. He had an extreme attachment to all his pets. Ernest's life did not go out large as he lived. It was quiet, in an area where no one would find his burial grounds for quite some time and for years the public had no idea that he had committed suicide. Killing himself at 61 seemed to have cut a brilliant man's life very short when he was beginning to become famous worldwide. Read on to see what you think. Mark Twain liked giving his speeches and traveling as he made much more mo

Most famous for his versions of classic fairytales, such as The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling, Thumbelina and The Snow Queen. My life is a lovely story, happy and fu...ll of incident. If, when I was a boy, and went forth into the world poor and friendless, a good fairy had met me and said, 'Choose now thy own course through life, and the object for which thou wilt strive, and then, according to the development of thy mind, and as reason requires, I will guide and defend thee to its attainment, ' my fate could not, even then, have been directed more happily, more prudently, or better. The history of my life will say to the world what it says to me-There is a loving God, who directs all things for the best.
