City of Friends offers a practical, intelligent, and well-informed overview of what it means to be gay or lesbian. The authors seek to help gay men and women, as well as their families and friends, to better understand the institutions and communities that make up the most culturally and ethnically diverse minority in America today.Beginning with basic concepts, LeVay and Nonas define the words "homosexual," "gay," "lesbian," and "bisexual" and discuss the various patterns of homosexuality in different cultures around the world. They relate the history of the gay and lesbian community in the United States, and its struggle for equal rights and social acceptance, before tackling the question -- still highly controversial -- of what determines an individual's sexual orientation.City of Friends describes the great diversity within the gay and lesbian community: Life in the "gay ghetto." Old lesbians in rural hideaways. Gay resorts. A "town without men." Gay and lesbian Latinos, African-Americans, Asian-Americans, and Native Americans -- what it means to be a minority within a minority. Lesbian and gay youth, the elderly, the deaf. Bisexuals and transsexuals. Academics, drag queens, technoqueers, publishers, softball players -- all make their appearance in these pages.LeVay and Nonas continue with a discussion of health issues (especially of the AIDS epidemic and the community's response to it), the law, and gay and lesbian politics. They describe the cultural achievements of lesbians and gay men -- their art, literature, theater, music, and dance. Finally they take a look at the spiritual life of gays and lesbians, both within and outside of organized religion.

City of Friends is the number one bestselling twentieth novel from the highly acclaimed author, Joanna Trollope. She glanced at her phone again. There were appeals from the girls, from her colleagues, a text from Steve reading with uncharacteristic imperiousness, 'Call me.' She couldn't. She couldn't call anyone . . . She leaned forward, gripping the edge of the bench, and stared at the ground. God, she thought, am I losing my mind? Is this what happens when you lose your job? The day Stacey Grant loses her job feels like the last day of her life. Or at least, the only life she'd ever known. For who was she if not a City high-flyer, Senior Partner at one of the top private equity firms in London? As Stacey starts to reconcile her old life with the new - one without professional achievements or meetings, but instead, long days at home with her dog and ailing mother, waiting for her successful husband to come home - she at least has The Girls to fall back on. Beth, Melissa and Gaby. The girls, now women, had been best friends from the early days of university right through their working lives, and for all the happiness and heartbreaks in between. But these career women all have personal problems of their own, and when Stacey's redundancy forces a betrayal to emerge that was supposed to remain secret, their long cherished friendships will be pushed to their limits . . .

Με τα χέρια στις τσέπες, ο Ρέμπους γύρισε για να αντικρίσει τον Κάφερτι. Ήταν γέροι πια, παρόμοια κοψιά, παρόμοια καταγωγή. Εάν κάθονταν μαζί σε μια παμπ, μπορεί κάποιος τυχαίος παρατηρητής να τους περνούσε για φίλους που γνωρίζονταν από το σχολείο. Το παρελθόν τους, όμως, έλεγε μια διαφορετική ιστορία. Η αποστρατεία δεν ταιριάζει στον Τζον Ρέμπους. Δεν είναι φτιαγμένος για χόμπι και διακοπές. Η δουλειά του αστυνομικού κυλάει στις φλέβες του. Έτσι, όταν η επιθεωρήτρια Σιβόν Κλαρκ ζητά τη βοήθειά του σε μια υπόθεση, δεν του παίρνει πολύ χρόνο να αποφασίσει. Η Κλαρκ ερευνά τον θάνατο ενός μεγαλοδικηγόρου, το πτώμα του οποίου βρέθηκε μαζί με ένα απειλητικό σημείωμα. Στην άλλη πλευρά του Εδιμβούργου, ο Μπιγκ Τζερ Κάφερτι –η νέμεση του Ρέμπους από τα παλιά– έχει λάβει ένα πανομοιότυπο σημείωμα και μία σφαίρα μέσα από το τζάμι του παραθύρου του. Τώρα, εξαρτάται από την Κλαρκ και τον Ρέμπους να ενώσουν τις κουκκίδες και να σταματήσουν τον δολοφόνο. Στο μεταξύ, ο επιθεωρητής Μάλκολμ Φοξ ενώνει τις δυνάμεις του με μια μυστική ομάδα από τη Γλασκώβη που παρακολουθεί μια διαβόητη φαμίλια του υποκόσμου. Κάτι θέλουν και δεν θα σταματήσουν πουθενά μέχρι να το αποκτήσουν… Ο Ian Rankin επαναφέρει τους σπουδαιότερους χαρακτήρες του σε μια ιστορία που διερευνά τις πιο σκοτεινές γωνιές των ενστίκτων και των επιθυμιών μας.
