Geboren im Jahr 1892 erlebt Maude das Beste, was ein Leben bieten kann – eine glückliche Ehe, wundervolle Kinder, großartige Freundschaften. Aber ihr widerfahren auch die schlimmsten Schicksalsschläge – unverhoffte Todesfälle, Armut und Hoffnungslosigkeit. Doch Maude kämpft immer weiter, so aussichtslos ihre Lage auch scheint. Die Geschichte, erzählt von Maudes Enkelin Donna Foley Mabry, ist eingebettet in die Ereignisse, Umwälzungen und Dramen des 20. Jahrhunderts in den USA: in einer Zeitspanne von der Großen Depression über den Zweiten Weltkrieg bis ins Detroit der 1950er- und 60er-Jahre entwickelt sich die berührende Geschichte einer starken Frau, die nie ihren Glauben an das Leben verliert. Eine wahre Geschichte, die sich liest wie ein fesselnder Roman!

Maude is an artist. Bruno looks after her. Or does he sponge off her? Is he her lover or her housekeeper? Is she an artist because he organises her life or does her art defy her fussy inventions? What is he to her? What is she to him? Are they simply insane? Suzanne Jacob's Maude develops two complex characters caught in a kind of prolonged, irresponsible adolescence. This intense novella explores the dynamics of this odd couple, a dynamics that transcends the otherwise pervasive apathy, depression and sense of powerlessness.

Nineteen-year-old Harold Chasen is obsessed with death. He fakes suicides to shock his self-obsessed mother, drives a hearse, and attends funerals of complete strangers. Seventy-nine-year-old Maude Chardin, on the other hand, adores life. She liberates trees from city sidewalks and transplants them to the forest, paints smiles on the faces of church statues, and "borrows" cars to remind their owners that life is fleeting—here today, gone tomorrow! A chance meeting between the two turns into a madcap, whirlwind romance, and Harold learns that life is worth living, and how to play the banjo. Harold and Maude started as Colin Higgins's master's thesis at UCLA Film School. He was working as a pool boy when Paramount purchased the script. The 1971 film, directed by Hal Ashby, bombed. But then this quirky, dark comedy began being shown on college campuses and at midnight-movie theaters, and it gained a loyal cult following. In 1997 it was selected for inclusion on the National Film Registry at the Library of Congress. This novelization was published shortly after the film's release, but has been out of print for more than 30 years. Even fans who have seen the movie dozens of times will find this companion valuable, as it gives fresh elements to watch for and answers many of the film's unresolved questions. Colin Higgins was a screenwriter, director, and producer of films that included Harold and Maude, Silver Streak, 9 to 5, and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. He died in 1988.

"Maude" was written when Christina Rossetti was 19. Clearly autobiographical, the novel examines the heroine's struggle to resist the notion that modesty, virtue and domesticity constitute the duties of women. Rossetti, often overshadowed by her brother Dante Gabriel Rossetti, struggled to express her own independent authorial voice and to resist a life bound by the constraints and demands of the traditional feminine role. "On Sisterhoods" confronts head-on the woman question. Asserting that women's role is to find beauty in their lives through altruism and good works - to be, more or less, "good women", Craik provides a radical solution to "the woman question" by advocating the encouragement of Anglican sisterhoods; effectively women's co-operatives.

Maude Adams (1872-1953) was a beloved and talented American Broadway actress who greatly influenced succeeding acting methods and production techniques. She first appeared on stage as an infant in her actress mother's arms, and then moved to a succession of children's parts. Her New York debut came in 1888, supported by E. H. Southern and then Charles Frohman, a demanding mentor. In 1905, she played her most famous role: the star of James M. Barrie's Peter Pan. Beautiful, kind, and very private, this early American actress is chronicled in a biography covering both her life experiences and innovations on the stage.
