Book Summary: A novel in two parts Part I: Je Louse, 1999 "Beware of ex-lovers with quills", warns the preface of Elliot Bernard's new novel Je Louse. Blaise spent six torrid years with the world-famous novelist, but left him for Woodrow. Now it would seem that Elliot Bernard lives happily with another man in New York. But could the author be seeking revenge upon his previous lover in his latest roman à clef? Blaise feels compelled to read the book — however painful it may prove to be — and his jealous lover doesn't like it one bit, no sir-ee. But neither Blaise nor Woodrow know what lies in store for them. Sometimes books can change your life forever; some can even blow your mind. Je Louse is going to do a nice job of both. Part II: Gridiron, 2004 Seventy-year-old Rose Elliot sits in her son's apartment contemplating the release of his autobiography. Rose never wanted to be in a book, but like it or not, she's in this one. She's a simple country woman who never quite fathomed why the Lord blessed her with a son like Elliot Bernard. Cake baking and needlepoint are much more her forté. "I think Gridiron was his greatest achievement", someone says with a laugh. Rose overhears and wonders what they're talking about. She couldn't remember a book with that title, and Elliot always hated sport as a boy. Having a son who wrote books like Elliot's has not been an easy thing for Rose. Still, she'd like to know more about Gridiron. Be careful Rose — there are some things a mother has the right not to know. Gridiron is one of those things.

Book Summary: In this book, we look at the work and style of one particular tribe The Sioux. The Sioux are a very large family, who roamed in many directions and learned a variety of customs from their different neighbours. Those who lived at the east, like the Yankton, and Sisseton, did beadwork very much like that of the Woodland peoples even further east. Those at the west, the Oglala, were like their western neighbours, Crow, Cheyenne and Arapaho. This book applies in general to the last three tribes as well as the western Sioux. Detailed instructions with lots of pictures and drawings accompanying them, that are great for both beginners and the more experienced crafter.

Book Summary: This book charts the entrance of women into public writing in the culturally vibrant world of late eighteenth-century Germany. It gives an absorbing account of the failed autobiography of Friderika Baldinger; the successful fiction, disguised self-narratives, and innovative monthly of Sophie La Roche; the praised poetry of Philippine Englehard; the controversial journalism and novels of Marianne Ehrmann; and the poems and prose about love and suicide by Sophie Albrecht. The book offers a feminist reassessment of the relationship of texts by these eighteenth-century German women writers to traditional literary history and traces how the women changed the cultural discourse of their day.

Book Summary: Kevin Brace, Canada’s most famous radio personality, stands in the door of his luxury condominium, hands covered in blood, and announces to his newspaper delivery man: “I killed her.” His wife lies dead in the bathtub, fatally stabbed. It would appear to be an open-and-shut case. The trouble is, Brace refuses to talk to anyone – including his own lawyer – after muttering those incriminating words. With the discovery that the victim was actually a self-destructive alcoholic, the appearance of strange fingerprints at the crime scene, and a revealing courtroom cross-examination, the seemingly simple case takes on all the complexities of a hotly contested murder trial. Meantime, much to everyone’s surprise, the Leafs are making in unlikely run for the Stanley cup. “… a masterful debut novel…In crisp, journalistic style, Rotenberg invests his tense cop procedural-cum-courtroom drama with the worries, foibles, beliefs, regrets, obsessions and idiosyncrasies of a multi-ethnic cast whose poignant familiarity never descends to caricature. With its unbroken realism and keen sense of atmosphere and place, from frenetic downtown to cookie-cutter burbs to rural Haliburton, Old City Hall adds a new feather to Rotenberg's cap.” - Winnipeg Free Press “…the atmospherics, and especially Rotenberg’s affection for the city of Toronto and the involutions of the law, make this a fast-paced, appealing addition to the genre.” – Kirkus “Breathtaking . . . A tightly woven spiderweb of plot and a rich cast of characters make this a truly gripping read. . . Robert Rotenberg does for Toronto what Ian Rankin does for Edinburgh.” - Jeffery Deaver “An amazing debut. . . this one has winner written all over it.” – Nelson DeMille “This is one of those novels where you only need to read the first chapter to be swept away.” – Douglas Preston “Clever, complex and filled with an engaging cast of characters, Old City Hall captures the vibrancy and soul of Toronto” - Kathy Reichs "Robert Rotenberg knows his Toronto courts and jails, he knows his law, and he knows his way around a legal thriller. Old City Hall is a splendid entertainment." - Andrew Pyper, author of The Killing Circle “Old City Hall is a wonderfully written and intriguing murder mystery. “ -Edward L. Greenspan, Q.C. 'Apart from evoking the seasonal rhythms of life in the city, the novel offers a convincing portrayal of backstage operations in the justice system, from details about prison hygiene to the catering in the police cafeteria ... Old City Hall is an enjoyable addition to the literature of urban crime.” - Times Literary Supplement

Book Summary: In the last three decades of the eighteenth century, a small but significant number of German actresses, including Sophie Albrecht (1757-1840), Marianne Ehrmann (1755-1795) and Elise BYrger (1769-1833), began to publish poetry, autobiography, drama and short fiction under their own names. These 'actress-writers' came of age at a time when the status of the actress was being radically redefined in accordance with Enlightenment aesthetics and the cult of sensibility. The Mask and the Quill is an exploration of this generation of actress-writers, their significance for German literary and cultural history, and their attempts to come to terms with the new image of the actress through literature and performance.
