The Good Wife s Guide Le M nagier de Paris Book Excerpt:

In the closing years of the fourteenth century, an anonymous French writer compiled a book addressed to a fifteen-year-old bride, narrated in the voice of her husband, a wealthy, aging Parisian. The book was designed to teach this young wife the moral attributes, duties, and conduct befitting a woman of her station in society, in the almost certain event of her widowhood and subsequent remarriage. The work also provides a rich assembly of practical materials for the wife's use and for her household, including treatises on gardening and shopping, tips on choosing servants, directions on the medical care of horses and the training of hawks, plus menus for elaborate feasts, and more than 380 recipes. The Good Wife's Guide is the first complete modern English translation of this important medieval text also known as Le Ménagier de Paris (the Parisian household book), a work long recognized for its unique insights into the domestic life of the bourgeoisie during the later Middle Ages. The Good Wife's Guide, expertly rendered into modern English by Gina L. Greco and Christine M. Rose, is accompanied by an informative critical introduction setting the work in its proper medieval context as a conduct manual. This edition presents the book in its entirety, as it must have existed for its earliest readers. The Guide is now a treasure for the classroom, appealing to anyone studying medieval literature or history or considering the complex lives of medieval women. It illuminates the milieu and composition process of medieval authors and will in turn fascinate cooking or horticulture enthusiasts. The work illustrates how a (perhaps fictional) Parisian householder of the late fourteenth century might well have trained his wife so that her behavior could reflect honorably on him and enhance his reputation.

The Late Starters Club Book Excerpt:

In this sequel to When the Cat had my Tongue, Diana Fassino recounts her experiences as a hopelessly incompetent 50's housewife, and the unexpected arrival, (the "Oops! Factor") of three babies in four years. This "Late Starter" becomes a prolific writer of short stories for women's magazines world-wide, and at forty, her children grown, she divorces her Swiss husband and moves to London. After a scandalous affair with a handsome young medical student, she leaves home with a backpack and spends a summer in Greece looking after nine drug-crazed ex-racehorses. A ten-day visit to Hawaii turns into three years, after which she runs a marina in the Turks and Caicos Islands. In a night of high drama the marina is burned to the ground, but when shortly afterwards her "Knight in Shining Armour" arrives in her life, it seems things will at last become less turbulent. Then tragedy and disaster befall her "beloveds", and in the last pages of this book we witness the healing and redemptive power of love. Today Diana lives with her American husband Dick, her "Knight in Shining Armour", in Sun Valley, Idaho. Praise for When the Cat Had My Tongue: "If nostalgia is your thing, I recommend you to read this unique, hilarious insight into the Upstairs Downstairs goings-on in Diana Fassino's riveting, intensely personal account of upper class English country life during WWII." John Whitney, Director Sagitta Productions, Creator of Upstairs Downstairs.
