Review
"...a welcome and overdue attempt to provide a comprehensive assessment of the creative achivevment of West Germany's only Nobel laureate...a well-researched, tightly edited and lucidly written book, which succeeds admirably in its aims." Frank Finlay, TLS

Book Description
This study of Thomas Hardy provides a substantial introduction to his six major novels and his poems. It deals more briefly with the minor fiction. Hardy now seems a more important novelist and poet than at any previous time. This is only partly due to his capabilities as a social historian or provincial chronicler. Far more important is his faithful exploration of the daily trials and tragedies of men and women as feeling beings. Man and woman in love, man and woman 'up against it', are the central themes of his...

Book Description
You think you have troubles? When Sammy Kidman, Dallas Police Department detective, takes a special undercover assignment as chauffeur to an old-money Dallas family, he tangles with three generations of troublesome women: the matriarch, Dolly Threlkeld, made of steel and made over by plastic surgery; her ex-daughter-in-law Linda Threlkeld-Rains, who deals in suspicious art and con men; and her daughter Jessica Threlkeld, who’ll do anything for a little attention. Thank goodness Sammy has his level-headed, sensible wife Marni with him on assignment. But when she gets all hormonal and weird on him—poor Sammy’s in for nothing but trouble.

Welcome to Beaconville It's a suspicious, unfriendly little town suspended in a dreary, bone-chilling winter. But when reclusive Dallas billionaire Fletcher Streiker receives a rambling letter from one of the residents asking for help, he decides to make a personal trip, bringing his wife, Adair, and their young son, Daniel.

Crisis of Desire: AIDS and the Fate of Gay Brotherhood
Robin Hardy
0395745446
May 1999
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
What has AIDS done to us gay men? is a question that can only be answered one gay man at a time. Decrying New Age Bunnies who claim that AIDS is the best thing that ever happened to them, Hardy asserts that if there is redemption in living with HIV, it is only in determining that something good can be constructed in the midst of great evil, and it can only be personal. With an eclectic mix of memoir, social history, diatribe, journalism and cultural criticism, he defends and celebrates the sex-positive ways gay men have continued to connect in the face of an ongoing catastrophe. Hardy, who died in a mountaineering accident before AIDS could kill him, believed HIV is not the enemy of sex; its the antagonist of love, and that even against death, revolution can be joyful. At its most incisive, the book documents...

Book Description
Marriage to a reclusive billionaire can have its ups--and downs. When reclusive Dallas billionaire Fletcher Streiker proposes marriage sight unseen to Adair Weiss in Streiker's Bride, she accepts after deep soul-searching--and discovers life on a whole new level. In the sequel, Streiker: The Killdeer, Fletcher takes his bride home to Hawaii, where he has some important business waiting. . . . "You know what a killdeer is, Adair? The bird?" he asked. She shrugged slightly. "It's a little brown bird that builds its nest right on the ground. When predators get too close to her nest, the mama killdeer will lure them away. It's a very effective defense. I hope I can do half as well." Adair eyed him and he explained, "I intend to lure the predators away from the business that's most important to me." The...
