Men may come and men may go, but cough syrup goes on forever . . .' Cough-syrup junkie, emotionally insecure intellectual snob (she's an English literature graduate from Calcutta University), faithful advocate of the 'Why me?' brigade, Arti believes that rock bands help her get centred better than shrinks. And that large doses of D.H. Lawrence and Woody Alien dilute the emotional neediness coursing through her veins. In Bombay now, on her domineering mother's orders to get a job or else marry a loser hand-picked from the matrimonial columns, Arti's one objective (apart from bombing her Super-Bitch Boss's office) is to keep alive her unrelenting search for the man with whom she can live happily ever after. But Arti has the unique talent of always falling for the wrong men. And as she stumbles from one disastrous relationship to the next, she realizes the potency of that all-important, universal truth: men only want you when you don't want them any more . . . An irresistible blend of satiric wit, romance (not of the mushy kind) and saucy tips on surviving single in the city, Girl Alone is a rollicking read from start to finish.

The long, bare room had never been graced by a picture or a curtain. Its only furniture was twenty narrow iron cots. Four girls were scrubbing the warped, wide-planked floor, three of them pitifully young for the hard work, the baby of them being only six, the oldest nine. The fourth, who directed their labors, rising from her knees sometimes to help one of her small crew, was just turned sixteen, but she looked in her short, skimpy dress of faded blue and white checked gingham, not more than twelve or thirteen. "Sal-lee," the six-year-old called out in a coaxing whine, as she sloshed a dirty rag up and down in a pail of soapy water, "play-act for us, won't you, Sal-lee? 'Tend like you're a queen and I'm your little girl. I'd be a princess, wouldn't I, Sal-lee?" The child sat back on her thin little haunches, one small hand plucking at the skimpy skirt of her own faded blue and white gingham, an exact replica, except for size, of the frocks worn by the three other scrubbers. "I'll 'tend like I've got on a white satin dress, Sal-lee-" Sally Ford lifted a strand of fine black hair that had escaped from the tight, thick braid that hung down her narrow back, tucked it behind a well-shaped ear, and smiled fondly upon the tiny pleader. It was a miracle-working smile. Before the miracle, that small, pale face had looked like that of a serious little old woman, the brows knotted, the mouth tight in a frown of concentration. But when she smiled she became a pretty girl. Her blue eyes, that had looked almost as faded as her dress, darkened and gleamed like a pair of perfectly matched sapphires. Delicate, wing-like eyebrows, even blacker than her hair, lost their sullenness, assumed a lovely, provocative arch. Her white cheeks gleamed. Her little pale mouth, unpuckered of its frown, bloomed suddenly, like a tea rose opening. Even, pointed, narrow teeth, to fit the narrowness of her delicate, childish jaw, flashed into that smile, completely destroying the picture of a rather sad little old woman which she might have posed for before.

Of Human Bondage, Jezebel, All About Eve, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Just this short list of Bette Davis' films gives an unmistakable sense of the role she played in twentieth-century cinema as one of the finest performers in Hollywood history. Drawing on an extensive series of conversations that took place during the last decade of Bette Davis' life, this biography draws heavily on the actresses own words. Looking back over the decades, from her teenage decision to become an actress to the pain and outrage over her daughter's bitter portrayal of her, Davis speaks with extraordinary candour. She explains how her father's abandonment of her a child reverberated through her four marriages, and discusses the persistent Hollywood legend that she was difficult to work with. Immersing readers in the drama and glamour of movie-making's golden age, The Girl Who Walked Home Alone is a startling portrait of an enduring icon.

This is a tale about a girls dream and how she makes it come true through her own actions. She is brave, she is undoubtedly bolder than is good for her, and she achieves incredible rewards for the risks she takes. Her success is linked irrevocably to how she relates to the people who surround herand without them none of it would have been possible. Samantha Jones is a girl with a passion for ships, and she has always dreamed of going to sea. Fed by stories her uncle told since she was a little child, her dream takes her into adventures little girls rarely get to experience. Against all odds, she braves repeated rejections until, by dint of her own ingenuity, boldness and wit, she wangles a job as cabin boy on The Lady Leeward, a clipper ship engaged in trade with the Far East. The book is not an account of day-to-day life aboard ship, of the command structure or even how the sailors perform their tasks. Rather, it touches mainly on events as they involve Samantha, such as her visits when the ship makes landfall and the people who make each stop memorable. It is clear from the start that Samantha might be in over her head, though she doesnt understand this point at the time. Each day of the voyage brings her up against something thought provoking, and puzzling them out is her main occupation. At times she stumbles, for instance, over how it feels to go against so many of her mothers prohibitions. At others, her attempts to figure out how to relate to her new found shipboard friends bear confusing fruit. Always and in everything she tries to do, her deception looms over her, threatening impending discovery and the end of her dream. The tale of her adventures is a multi-layered account of a young girls transformation. Right at the beginning, she changes, almost before your eyes, from a mid-19th century girl into a rather tough-looking young sailor and manages to maintain this charade for an entire ocean voyage to China and backwell, almost all the way back, but that comes later. On the way, she struggles to deal with the guilt of leaving her family, even though she rationalizes that they will be better off without the extra mouth to feed. She also feels guilty for deceiving the people on the ship, since she lives the lie every day, and for her actions when she leaves her friend Michael wondering why she behaves as she does. In the process, she learns that there are consequences to be lived with from these decisions, and the lessons transform her from the child following rules laid down by others into a person of understanding who chooses responsibly for herself. Encountering the seamen aboard ship, entering new places and situations, meeting people with different cultures and languagesall these events change Sam Jones from a nave, unsophisticated city girl into an awakened, enlightened, world traveler. As important as it is, the physical transformation that turns a girl into a woman is almost lost to notice amid all the adventures she experiences. At the end of her adventures, Sam, her dream fulfilled, is happy to be Samantha Jones once again--and more than ready to meet whatever life brings her way. Samantha dreams, Shell always have dreams, And the ship will still fly with the wind.

...the sin of an old man is equal to about two sins of a young man. The fable-like story of an old man's sexual obsession with a young woman is a distillation of Italo Svevo's concerns--attraction of an older man to a younger woman, individual conscience versus social convention, and the cost of sexual desire. This novella is a marvel of psychological insight, following the man's vacillations and tortuous self-justifications to their tragic-comic end. It is presented here in a translation first commissioned and published by Virginia Woolf for her Hogarth Press. The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time.
