When shy young heir Patrick is orphaned at the age of ten, the only family he has is his wealthy and eccentric aunt, a New York socialite named Mame. Prone to dramatic costumes, flights of fancy and expensive whims, Mame will raise Patrick the only way she knows how - with humour, mishaps, unforgettable friends and lots of love. From progressive schooling and Mame's search for a husband to her short-lived literary career and the puncturing of some of Patrick's romances, Auntie Mame is the most magnificent and hilarious work of love, style, wit and the life of a modern American.

LYNNE ARDEN moved with her family to the Pacific Northwest as a young girl living very close to Puget Sound near Seattle, Washington. She graduated from the local high school, attended the University of Washington and took a children s literary course later on in her life. To The Young Reader Alex Kinkaid is a seven year old boy who lives in Washington State by a large body of water called Puget Sound. He likes to write to his Auntie Kate about his adventures with Jerry, his cocker spaniel, Jimmy, his friend and that nasty Jack Turner. He tries real hard to please his teacher, Miss Hawthorne, but he accidentally gets into some trouble along the way. Guess What Happened to Me, Auntie Kate! will delight young children with its comical characters. Young Alex is always getting into scrapes and somehow finding ways to get out of them. From accidentally letting spiders get loose in his classroom, to a disastrous result in the kitchen making jam, Alex sure leads an adventurous life. Some of Alex s adventures were based on the author s own experiences. There actually was a sea lion that broke the windshield of a moored speed boat near Point Pulley. Point Pulley is an actual landmark on Puget Sound. Fishing for sole with nothing more than string, a weight and worms and a harrowing blizzard that hit the Puget Sound area in the Winter of 1950 were also experiences of the author. Along with the humor in these short vignettes, there is an underlying moral message in most of these stories of fair play, being kind to others, (well, most of the time), and trying really hard to be a good kid. NATALIE MARINO is an award wining fine artist who has exhibited widely and has illustrated several children s storybooks. She lives and works in her NJ studio. Email: [email protected]"

Elizabeth, with her controlled sensuality and suppressed rage, has just lost her latest lover to suicide. Nate, her gentle, indecisive husband, is planning to leave her for Lesje, a perennial innocent who prefers dinosaurs to men. Hanging over them all is the ghost of Elizabeth's dead lover, and the dizzying threat of three lives careening inevitably towards the same climax.
