Description : In this lyrical coming-of-age story about family, sisterhood, music, race, and identity, Mariama J. Lockington draws on some of the emotional truths from her own experiences growing up with an adoptive white family. I am a girl but most days I feel like a question mark. Makeda June Kirkland is eleven years old, adopted, and black. Her parents and big sister are white, and even though she loves her family very much, Makeda often feels left out. When Makeda's family moves from Maryland to New Mexico, she leaves behind her best friend, Lena— the only other adopted black girl she knows— for a new life. In New Mexico, everything is different. At home, Makeda’s sister is too cool to hang out with her anymore and at school, she can’t seem to find one real friend. Through it all, Makeda can’t help but wonder: What would it feel like to grow up with a family that looks like me? Through singing, dreaming, and writing secret messages back and forth with Lena, Makeda might just carve a small place for herself in the world. For Black Girls Like Me is for anyone who has ever asked themselves: How do you figure out where you are going if you don’t know where you came from?

Description : Once there was a girl, pretty and smart and sexy. By her mid-twenties, she'd acquired two husbands and two children, and life wasn't going to plan... Then she met a man. Outrageous, brilliant, impossible, charismatic and kind, he was irresistible. Sex, drugs and jazz were a heady combination for the girl from Essex. Suddenly it was the swinging sixties and she was juggling babies with one hand and popping pills with the other. When George Melly wasn't in jazz clubs, he was fishing - and not just for fish. Brutally honest, hilariously candid, Diana Melly tells the extraordinary story of a turbulent marriage, of the uncharted trajectory of a woman's life from the fifties to the new century - by way of a glitteringly seductive crowd that includes Bruce Chatwin, Jean Rhys, Sonia Orwell, Kenneth Tynan, Jonathan Miller and a host of other luminaries. Written with a unique and clear-eyed self-effacement, here is an addictive, exceptional memoir, glowing with life and love, that breaks your heart, but makes you glad to be alive.

Description : In the first book-length study of Marie Dressler, MGM's most profitable movie star in the early 1930s, Victoria Sturtevant analyzes Dressler's use of her body to challenge Hollywood's standards for leading ladies. At five feet seven inches tall and two hundred pounds, Dressler often played ugly ducklings, old maids, doting mothers, and imperious dowagers. However, her body, her fearless physicality, and her athletic slapstick routines commanded the screen. Sturtevant interprets the meanings of Dressler's body by looking at her vaudeville career, her transgressive representation of an "unruly" yet sexual body in Emma and Christopher Bean, ideas of the body politic in the films Politics and Prosperity, and Dressler as a mythic body in Min and Bill and Tugboat Annie.

But she wanted more: more experience, more travel, more passion. An epic motorcycle trip through Asia with her boyfriend John Steinbeck Jr. ended in a Thai jail. But drugs weren't her real problem. Alcohol was. Drinking seemed to defeat the demons in her psyche - until it became clear that drinking was her biggest demon of all. How had a nice country girl turned into a drunk? Now a well-known journalist, ex-newspaper editor and chairman of the London Food Board, Rosie made it from the top to the bottom and back again. In this account of her life, she never shirks from the truth about herself - and in her honesty she gives hope to other women with addictions, addressing the hellish predicament of the alcoholic woman with passion and candour.

Description : Poet Margaret Bazzell-Crocker brings a knockout collection of work with "When I Was a Girl Like Me," the book explores the world of family and motherhood and femininity with a sledgehammer and a sickle. This collection is raw with anger and power while being so honest and maintaining hope throughout. This is a true masterpiece of the modern woman's perspective. "This is a book I've been waiting two decades for, one written without excuses or apologizes, one that shows a multi-dimensional view of the female experience. Crocker explores the journey from girlhood to womanhood in a way that makes me consider how easy it is to blink and wake up decades later, having given away so much of yourself that you have to rediscover who you are. In her introduction, Crocker talks about anger, but what I see throughout is passion shape shifted into a voluptuous collection of heterogeneous poems. And maybe she is showing us that the heroines we worshiped, the Lynda Carters, weren't the real heroes at all, maybe the heroes are the women who redirected their rage, put pen to paper and shared their experience in a way that unfeignedly resonates." --Rebecca Schumejda, author of Cadillac Men (NYQ Books, 2012) poet bio: Margaret Crocker lives in Southern Missouri with her husband of 25 years and her daughters, who float in and out of her life. Margaret would like to thank several publications for celebrating her art and work as well; among them As It Ought To Be, the Sanesplaining podcast (of whom she is a host), Windowpanes and Green Bean Press. This is not an inclusive list. She would especially like to thank her husband, who has always loudly encouraged her to publish his favorites, and her daughters, family and friends, who have provided much inspiration and good examples of how life should be lived.

Description : Till now, Stephanie has done her best to play by the rules--which seem to be stacked against girls like her. It doesn't help that she wants to play football, dress like a boy, and fight apartheid in South Africa--despite living in rural middle England--as she struggles to find her voice in a world where everything is different for girls. Then she hears them on the radio. Greenham women--an irreverent group of lesbians, punk rockers, mothers, and activists who have set up camp outside a US military base to protest nuclear war--are calling for backups in the face of imminent eviction from their muddy tents. She heads there immediately, where a series of adventures--from a break-in to a nuclear research center to a doomed love affair with a punk rock singer in a girl band--changes the course of her life forever. But the sense of community she has found is challenged when she faces tragedy at home.
