Come forth with an open mind, for an unconventional tale of love.. Dublin native Freda Wilson considers herself to be an acquired taste. She has a habit of making offensive jokes and speaking her mind too often. She doesn't have the best track record with first impressions, which is why she gets a surprise when her new neighbour Nicholas takes a shine to her. Nicholas is darkly handsome, funny and magnetic, and Freda feels like her black and white existence is plunged into a rainbow of colour when she's around him. When he walks into a room he lights it up, with his quick wit and charisma. He is a travelling cabaret performer, but Freda doesn't know exactly what that entails until the curtains pull back on his opening night. She is gob-smacked and entirely intrigued to see him take to the stage in drag. Later on, Nicholas asks her if she would like to become his show assistant. Excited by the idea, she jumps at the chance. Soon she finds herself immersed in a world of wigs, make-up and high heels, surrounded by pretty men and the temptation of falling for her incredibly beautiful employer. In this story of passion and sexual discovery, Nicholas and Freda will contend with jealousy, emotional highs and lows, and the kind of love that only comes around once in a lifetime.

Prostitute, adulteress, unmarried woman who engages in sexual relations, victim of seduction—the Victorian "fallen woman" represents a complex array of stigmatized conditions. Amanda Anderson here reconsiders the familiar figure of the fallen woman within the context of mid-Victorian debates over the nature of selfhood, gender, and agency. In richly textured readings of works by Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, among others, she argues that depictions of fallen women express profound cultural anxieties about the very possibility of self-control and traditional moral responsibility.

"This is the first book to show how the painted face functioned as theatrical signal in Renaissance drama. Explaining the connection between red, white, and black makeup and sexual sin, devilish seduction, and poison, Annette Drew-Bear surveys how Renaissance dramatists used face-paint in tragedy to express a wide range of social, political, and sexual corruption. She also shows that in Renaissance comedy, playwrights exploited the many bawdy meanings of fucus, or cosmetic paint, to dramatize that "theres knauery in dawbing."" "Drew-Bear argues that both on the stage and in society, the painted face was seen in moral terms. To understand the significance of face-painting in Shakespeare and other Renaissance dramatists, modern readers need to recover the convention of seeing a painted face as revealing an internal moral state. Demonstrating that stage face-painting conventions grew out of moral treatises, sermons, and social custom, Drew-Bear traces the origin of symbolic patterns of facial adornment and deformity in Medieval and Tudor drama. She shows how Ben Jonson developed his own satiric version of the cosmetic or fucus scene in six of his plays to dramatize the hypocrisy of both men and women. Shakespeare used red, white, and black painted faces in typically more complex and richly ironic ways than his contemporaries." "The strength of this book is its abundance of fresh, new, authoritative evidence of face-painting that conclusively establishes how widespread and how richly significant the painted face was on the Renaissance stage. This work should be valuable to anyone interested in the evidence of linking players and face-paint and in the use of face-paint as theatrical signal in Medieval, Tudor, and Renaissance drama. Anyone curious about cosmetics and attitudes toward cosmetics will enjoy reading about the ingredients of the makeup worn by both women and men in the Renaissance to achieve the fashionable white face, rosy cheeks, and light hair. Equally intriguing are the effects of sometimes poisonous ingredients like lead, mercury, and vitriol." "Supporting the text are six illustrations of face-painting that include a woodcut of the devil applying cosmetics, a painted Elizabethan lady, a made-up Elizabeth I, and Satan disguised as a fair-faced, buxom, blond lady. The first book-length study of its kind, Painted Faces on the Renaissance Stage should be of interest to all students of drama, theater history, and social custom in the age of Shakespeare and his contemporaries."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Fourteen murders across the country and the only thing that the victims have in common is that all are African-Americans. With the body count rising, the police, the FBI, and the Homeland Security's Domestic Terrorism Unit know that a message left at each crime scene not only links the murders, but suggests that they are hate crimes being committed by organized serial killers, their victims chosen at random. As agent Jack Andresen delves deeper into the investigation, it becomes apparent that there is more to these random acts of violence than meets the eye. Jack soon realizes that these victims are being targeted to achieve a more sinister agenda. Links to terrorism and a very real threat of civil war begin to unfold as the horrific facts are revealed one by one. Time is running out for Jack as the fight for global power begins with the bloodshed of those chosen to be sacrificed first.

Throughout history, women (and men) have applied make-up to enhance, alter, conceal and even to disguise their appearance. Also, to a greater or lesser degree over time, cosmetics have been used as a visible marker of social status, gender, wealth and well-being. A closer look at the world of make-up gives us not only a mirror reflecting day-to-day life in the past, but also an indicator of the culture and politics of earlier periods in history. Susan Stewart guides the reader through the bewildering, fascinating and complex story of cosmetics, from the ancient world to the present day.Anyone who has ever wondered how the Romans used algae to colour their faces and urine to whiten their teeth, how Radium came to be a popular 1930s beauty trend, or how make-up survived the war will enjoy this colourful journey through the human obsession with improving how we look.
