THE SECOND ENTRY IN THE PICADOR TRUE TALES SERIES: ONE OF LIFE'S TRICKIEST RITES OF PASSAGE COLLECTED INTO AN UNFORGETTABLE VOLUME OF STORIES The fraught relationship between roommates is a true cultural obsession. Shows like Friends, The Golden Girls, The Odd Couple, and New Girl have held us rapt for decades, simultaneously delighting and disconcerting us with their depictions of mismatched couples' cringe-worthy awkwardness and against-all-odds friendship. Maybe it's that uniquely unnatural experience of living with a total stranger that ignites our curiosity, or just that almost all of us, for better or worse, have had one of our own. In Stephanie Wu's The Roommates, people of all ages reveal their disastrous, hilarious, and sometimes moving stories of making their best friend for life or lifelong nemesis. Learn what it's like to share a room in places as unusual as a thirty-person beach house, a billionaire's yacht, a reality show mansion, and a retirement hotel, and those as familiar as sleepaway camps, boarding schools, and college dorms. Put down your roommate's dirty dishes and passive-aggressive Post-it's for this eye-opening glimpse into how people live together in the modern age. You'll meet: The Amateur Taxidermist · The Alcoholic Genius · The Kleptomaniac · The Rent Stiffer · The Naked Nanna · The Serial Roommate · The Top Chef · The Recovered Addict · The Russian Missionary · The Obsessive Lesbian · The Impersonator · The Party Poopers...and many more!

The Roommate Book is all about celebrating this short season of life. It’s the time between parental curfews and settling down with a significant other. It is for the single and proud, silly and crafty, witty and thrifty. It’s a non-serious look at how to live with a friend (or total stranger). Nuggets of wisdom are included, but so are comical pie charts, hypotheticals, illustrations, and brief essays. This book invites passersby to thumb through and stay a while. Meet your roommate: The Random, The BFF, The Bra-less & Lawless, The "I've never actually seen my roommate," The "We get along but we're not really friends," The Enemy, The Frenemy, The Platonic Opposite Sex, or The Faux Partner. Use the "Should I Live with This Person" flow chart to help you choose. This fun and functional book also includes: The "Should I eat this without asking?" flow chart, the top 10 reasons it's awesome to have a roommate, the pet peeve awareness illustrated guide, the Eisenhower matrix for chores (important, urgent, not important, not urgent), the guide to creating nicknames, party and prank ideas, and so much more!

The late twentieth century has seen a fantastic expansion of personal, sexual, and domestic liberties in the United States. In Not Just Roommates, Elizabeth H. Pleck explores the rise of cohabitation, and the changing social norms that have allowed cohabitation to become the chosen lifestyle of more than fifteen million Americans. Despite this growing social acceptance, Pleck contends that when it comes to the law, cohabitors have been, and continue to be, treated as second-class citizens, subjected to discriminatory laws, limited privacy, a lack of political representation, and little hope for change. Because cohabitation is not a sexual identity, Pleck argues, cohabitors face the legal discrimination of a population with no group identity, no civil rights movement, no legal defense organizations, and, often, no consciousness of being discriminated against. Through in-depth research in written sources and interviews, Pleck shines a light on the emergence of cohabitation in American culture, its complex history, and its unpleasant realities in the present day.

In ROOMMATES AND OTHER ANOMALIES, we encounter Julietta Jenkins, (JJ), who begins her journey with a major crisis in her life. Her landlord has the police on his tail, and poor JJ has to find another place to live, PRONTO. Newly arrived from the state of Vermont, she learns quickly that life in California is not as simple as she had hoped. Through many episodes while attempting to find the perfect roommate, she develops a keen sense of fair play and learns that life is not always what it seems. JJ grows to be the ultimate problem solver, a roommate advisor whose recommendations are frequently comical and surprising. This book is written in a journal format with a humorous tone. The reader will enjoy JJ s (and the authors) many experiences in living with roommates. Sylvia Bergthold has been supplementing her income for 35 years, by sharing her California home with roommates. As a consequence, she penned the self-guide manual Sorry, The Boa Has Gotta Go! A Roommate Survival Guide. Her book, popular among homeowners and numerous apartment dwellers eager for financial relief, has been instrumental in easing the economic burdens for many households. Writing roommate advice articles for numerous national newspapers, including domestic and foreign magazines, subsequently led to her stint as the roommate advisor on AllExperts.com. Recently retiring from that post, her expertise was again called upon by VideoJug.com: life explained on film. She and the Video Jug team created several successful videos on the various aspects of shared living. Her latest endeavor is the novel ROOMMATES AND OTHER ANOMALIES, a fictionalized account of her years sharing life with a multitude of roommates."
