When Joan Kelly took a weekend job as a professional submissive in a private dungeon, it seemed she'd finally found a perfect outlet for her pent-up desires. Suddenly, Joan was being paid to do things she'd only fantasized about. Having spent several years scouring the Internet unsuccessfully for a man who would dominate her in the bedroom without getting on her nerves outside of it, Joan had nearly lost hope of satisfying her sexually submissive urges. Now, using her professional name, "Marnie," she was being paid to do only what she felt like with kinky men who didn't even expect to have any real sex in their sessions. To Joan, it almost felt like being paid to practice the art of self-centeredness–—except for the part where she had to kneel and address strangers as "Master." The Pleasure's All Mine offers the reader a rare, intimate, often amusing, sometimes disturbing look into the life of a professional submissive–—one whose drive for self-acceptance and respect is as relentless as her sexual need for the services she provides. Readers will experience many humorous, bizarre, frightening, and utterly entertaining events through the perceptive and insightful eyes of this writer.

Handcuffs, paddles, whips—the words alone are enough to make a person blush. Even by our society’s standards, the practice of things like BDSM is still very hush-hush, considered deviant sexual behavior that must be kept hidden. But the narrow view of what is thought of as “normal” sex—a vanilla act performed by one man and one woman—is more and more contested these days. And as Julie Peakman reveals, normal never really existed; for everyone, different kinds of sex have always offered myriad pleasures, and almost all sexual behaviors have traveled between acceptance and proscription. The Pleasure’s All Mine examines two millennia of letters, diaries, court records, erotic books, medical texts, and more to explore the gamut of “deviant” sexual activity. Delving into the specialized cultures of pain, necrophilia, and bestiality and the social world of plushies, furries, and life-size sex dolls, Peakman considers the changing attitudes toward these, as well as masturbation, “golden showers,” sadomasochism, homosexuals, transvestites, and transsexuals. She follows the history of each behavior through its original reception to its interpretation by sexologists and how it is viewed today, showing how previously acceptable behaviors now provoke social outrage, or vice versa. In addition, she questions why people have been and remain intolerant of other people’s sexual preferences. The first comprehensive history of sexual perversion and packed with both color and black and white images, The Pleasure’s All Mine is a fascinating and sometimes shocking look at the evolution of our views on sex.

Prate Marshbanks proposed to his future wife on a muggy July night at Pete's Drive-in back in '52. "She said yes to me between bites of a slaw burger all-the-way." A college graduate and daughter of a prominent lawyer, Irene was an unlikely match for Prate, a high school dropout. He lived his married life aware of the question on people's minds: How in the world did a tall, thin, fair-skinned beauty and one of the most respected high school English teachers in all of Greenville County, in all of South Carolina for that matter, wind up married to a short, dark, fat-faced, jug-eared house painter? That their marriage not only survived for fifty years, but flourished, is a source of constant wonder to Prate. Now he faces a new challenge with Irene. From the author of In The Family Way, a novel the Atlanta Constitution called "an instant classic" and the Charlotte Observer praised as "a lovely, moving book," comes a powerful story of hard-earned hope. The Pleasure Was Mine takes place during a critical summer in the life of Prate Marshbanks, when he retires to care for his wife, who is gradually slipping away. To complicate things, Prate's son, Newell, a recently widowed single father, asks Prate to keep nine-year-old Jackson for the summer. Though Prate is irritated by the presence of his moody grandson, during the summer Jackson helps tend his grandmother, and grandfather and grandson form a bond. As Irene's memory fades, Prate, a hardworking man who has kept to himself most of his life, has little choice but to get to know his family. With elegance and skillful economy of language, Tommy Hays renders an unforgettable character in Prate Marshbanks. The Pleasure Was Mine is at once a quietly wrenching portrayal of grief, a magical and romantic story about the power of love, and an unexpectedly moving take on the resilience of family.

Mimi's mother is the German daughter of a reluctant Third Reich infantry conscript. Her father is the Hungarian Jewish son of concentration camp survivors. Haunted by ghosts from their ravaged European past, the family settles in the arcadia of a Midwestern American suburb where, no matter what they do, they will never quite fit in. In Eva Marer's posthumous novel, the eerily sensitive child narrator's navigation of three cultures American, German and Hungarian is complicated by her capacity to remember things she herself never lived. Among Marer's papers was this description of the book: "History demands that we never forget, and yet we have forgotten. But some remember what they have never seen. This is the conundrum faced by the novel's seven-year-old protagonist, Mimi, who, as the narrative opens, is unable even to articulate her conflict: What is it to live a memory that is not your own?" In a strikingly original take on the classic immigrant tale, love infuses history in such a way that, rather than being blunted or subdued with time, it takes on new life in the febrile mind of a overly imaginative child whose impassioned empathy for her father makes her feel his past suffering even more fervently than her own.

Harlow Had Been Sentenced To Die At Dawn. For The Town Of Los Santos, Dawn Couldn't Come Soon Enough. . . Everyone in Los Santos had crossed paths with Harlow at one time or another, from the days when he was a snot-nosed boy stealing from kitchen gardens and tormenting dogs to the moment he acquired his first taste for murder. Along the way, Harlow left town and started to burn, pillage, kill, rape, and steal his way west, until he came back home to rob a bank, slaughter an innocent man, and finally trip over the marshal's outstretched foot. Now, the folks of Los Santos have one last chance to bid Harlow farewell, from the innocents to whose lives he's shattered to the preacher who can't find it in his heart to pray for him; from the local soiled dove to an old man with a dark secret of his own. And as these citizens tell their stories, they can't help but wonder: why did Harlow Mackleprang go so very wrong--and are some people too evil to really die? "A powerful tale of hatred, vengeance and retribution. An imaginative yarn, well and uniquely done." --Jimmy Lee Butts, author of A Bad Day to Die "Gallows For a Gunman is a fine read." --Frank Roderus, Spur-winning author of Judgment Day "A new voice in the west that rings authentic." --Dusty Richards, author of From Hell to Breakfast
