Books Description:

The process of becoming an adult in contemporary times is fragmented and unequal, shaped by chance, choice and timing. Unfolding lives presents a unique approach to understanding the changing face of youth transitions, addressing the question of how gender identities are constituted in late modern culture. The book follows individual lives over time, enabling the reader to witness gender identities in the making and breathing new life into static analytic models. At the heart of the book are vivid in-depth accounts of four young lives, emblematic of broader biographical trends. They reveal how inequalities and privileges are made in new and unexpected ways, through practices such as falling in love, coming out, acting out and religious conversion. A focus on temporal processes and changing meanings captures what it feels like to be young and shows the creative ways that young people navigate the conflicting and changing demands of personal relationships, schooling, work and play. Unfolding lives is also a demonstration of a method-in-practice, describing how longitudinal material can be analysed and animated to realise the relationship between personal and social change. Written in an accessible style that breaks the conventional academic mould, Unfolding lives is a compelling and provocative read. The book will be an essential text for students and academics involved in youth and gender studies as well as those interested in new directions in qualitative research methods and writing.

Everything in this book is true. The time Kelly peed her pants in the gas station. The time she stalked Leonardo DiCaprio through Los Angeles as a stoned teenager. The time she used her son’s diaper explosion to get out of a speeding ticket. And especially the time she was convinced David Copperfield could read her mind. Kelly’s more than half a million Twitter followers already knew she was hilarious, and Everything Is Perfect When You’re a Liar has proven it, spending months on the bestseller list, earning her love from both reviewers and readers, and proving “not only has she mastered the 140-character barb, but the long-form essay as well.”* Kelly’s adventures are now in paperback, with a brand-new story about how she and her husband, James, got married to fulfill their son’s desire to be a ring bearer. (But blew it, by forgetting a crucial detail.) From childhood to motherhood, from the zany to the tearjerking, Kelly covers it all and proves that when you live life unapologetically, there’s no need to lie.

Books Description:

BIRDS OF A FEATHER, is the third in an ongoing series of books about the rivalry of two brothers: Michael the Archangel and his exiled sibling, Lucifer. In volume three, we follow the lives of two young men mentioned in the other books. The book traces the violent history of Mitch Garfield, a former Marine and espionage agent and the rather more sedate life of Todd Bechtold, raised in Hollywood and more at home with art and music that violence. Nevertheless, inexorably, these two are drawn together and, serendipitously, wind up in Scajaquada where the battle between the two brothers is being waged. The backgrounds of both men serve to prepare them for their part in this battle and their courage and resilience under enormous pressure surprises even them. Though Mitch, as the apparently stronger of the two, assumes the role of protector to his younger mate, he soon learns that Todd has strength he, himself, lacks. The strength of both will be needed and tested when Lucifers ongoing campaign to initiate The Rule of Chaos on Earth begins to heat up with Mitch and Todd caught in the middle. How they handle this ongoing threat to mankind remains to be seen as future volumes will show. Despite the subject matter, this series is NOT religious, though it does contain religious elements and characters, casting many in a new light. As the story opens, Mitch is still a High School student with hopes of making something of himself. Fate intervenes, however, and the young man finds himself in a role thats foreign to him. As Mitch fights his way through Korea, a young man named Todd is growing up in Hollywood--hostile and disillusioned. While Todd attends College and meets some rather amazing people, Mitch winds up in the inferno of Vietnam where he and the unflappable Captain Truckner meet an uncompromising fate. Both the soldier and the art aficionado, however, receive help and guidance from a strange source: Mitch through a mysterious Phantom Soldier who twice saves him from death and Todd through the unlikely agency of a Voodoo priestess. These two disparate individuals finally come together and realize they are soul-mates. Their union leads them to Scajaquada and a rendezvous with destiny.....and Lucifer.
