THE WARDROBE MISTRESS is Meghan Masterson's fascinating and visceral debut, an inside look at Marie Antoinette's luxurious life in Versailles remarkably juxtaposed against life in third estate as the French Revolution gains strength. A propulsive exploration of love, loyalty, danger, and intrigue...not to be missed. It's Giselle Aubry's first time at court in Versailles. At sixteen, she is one of Marie Antoinette's newest undertirewomen, and in awe of the glamorous queen and her opulent palace life. A budding designer, it's a dream come true to work with the beautiful fabrics and jewels in the queen's wardrobe. But every few weeks she returns home to visit her family in Paris where rumors of revolution are growing stronger. From her position working in the royal household, Giselle is poised to see both sides of the revolutionary tensions erupting throughout Paris. When her uncle, a retired member of the secret du roi, a spy ring that worked for the old King, Louis XV, suggests that she casually report the Queen’s actions back to him as a game, she leaps at the chance. Spying seems like an adventure and an exciting way to privately support the revolution taking the countryside by storm. She also enjoys using her insight from Versailles in lively debates with Léon Gauvain, the handsome and idealistic revolutionary who courts her. But as the revolution continues to gain momentum, and Giselle grows closer to the Queen, becoming one of the few trusted servants, she finds herself dangerously torn. Violence is escalating; she must choose where her loyalty truly lies, or risk losing everything...maybe even her head.

When it comes to quoting Shakespeare, all too many people feel that it is an art that they could not possibly practice themselves. Furthermore, says the common wisdom, besides the use of a few famous quotations that virtually everyone has heard, it is certainly not realistic to think that Shakespeare's words, written over four hundred years ago, can have any practical relevance to modern life? It is precisely this so-called common wisdom that the author of this book is determined to dispel. Dispensing generous helpings of humor at every turn, and utilizing over a 150 real life scenarios, this is a playful book that is tailor-made for readers who want an unstuffy, unpretentious way of enjoying Shakespeare's extraordinary words and imagery. All of the typical scenarios of modern life are here - from working for an odious boss to vacationing in an island paradise, from romancing till dawn to picking up after the kids. But rather than having toaddress this myriad of life situations with the same trite expressions that everyone else employs, the reader is given a treasure-trove of Shakespearean quotations along with their "everyday English" translations to make his or her commentary sparkle with wit and vibrancy. The book concludes with a modern scenario tour de force entitled "Fifty Ways To Love Your Shakespeare," which leaves the reader thoroughly convinced that Shakespeare can indeed be remarkably and delightfully adaptable to modern times.

Perhaps while reading Shakespeare you've asked yourself, What exactly is Hamlet trying to tell me? Why must he mince words and muse in lyricism and, in short, whack about the shrub? But if the Prince of Denmark had a Twitter account and an iPhone, he could tell his story in real time--and concisely! Hence the genius of Twitterature. Hatched in a dorm room at the brain trust that is the University of Chicago, Twitterature is a hilarious and irreverent re-imagining of the classics as a series of 140-character tweets from the protagonist. Providing a crash course in more than eighty of the world's best-known books, from Homer to Harry Potter, Virgil to Voltaire, Tolstoy to Twilight and Dante to The Da Vinci Code. It's the ultimate Cliffs Notes. Because as great as the classics are, who has time to read those big, long books anymore? Sample tweets: From Hamlet: WTF IS POLONIUS DOING BEHIND THE CURTAIN??? From the Harry Potter series: Oh man big tournament at my school this year!! PSYCHED! I hope nobody dies this year, and every year as if by clockwork. From The Great Gatsby: Gatsby is so emo. Who cries about his girlfriend while eating breakfast...IN THE POOL?
