Carmen Dog by Carol Emshwiller Summary

“Combines the cruel humor of Candide with the allegorical panache of Animal Farm.”—Entertainment Weekly "Carol is the most unappreciated great writer we've got. Carmen Dog ought to be a classic in the colleges by now . . . It's so funny, and it's so keen." —Ursula K. Le Guin “A rollicking outre satire.... full of comic leaps and absurdist genius.”—Bitch “A wise and funny book.”—The New York Times "This trenchant feminist fantasy-satire mixes elements of Animal Farm, Rhinoceros and The Handmaid's Tale.... Imagination and absurdist humor mark [Carmen Dog] throughout, and Emshwiller is engaging even when most savage about male-female relationships."—Booklist "Her fantastic premise allows Emshwiller canny and frequently hilarious insights into the damaging sex-role stereotypes both men and women perpetuate." —Publishers Weekly The debut title in our Peapod Classics line, Carol Emshwiller’s genre-jumping debut novel is a dangerous, sharp-eyed look at men, women, and the world we live in. Everything is changing: women are turning into animals, and animals are turning into women. Pooch, a golden setter, is turning into a beautiful woman—although she still has some of her canine traits: she just can't shuck that loyalty thing—and her former owner has turned into a snapping turtle. When the turtle tries to take a bite of her own baby, Pooch snatches the baby and runs. Meanwhile, there's a dangerous wolverine on the loose, men are desperately trying to figure out what's going on, and Pooch discovers what she really wants: to sing Carmen. Carmen Dog is the funny feminist classic that inspired writers Pat Murphy and Karen Joy Fowler to create the James Tiptree Jr. Memorial Award.

A Pilgrimage to Death by J. J. Cagney Summary

"Vivid, alluring, and heart-wrenching, A Pilgrimage to Death is every reason I love mystery. A breathtaking tale." ~ Darynda Jones, NY Times Bestselling Author Cici discovers a body in the forest. The victim’s wounds are identical to the ones that killed her sister a year ago... Someone murdered her sister. And shot her dog. The killer won't stop until Cici's dead, too. With her identical twin sister haunting her dreams, Cici and her dogs must dodge arrows, bullets, and even a demon truck. Worse, she must grapple with the knowledge her twin's death was much more sinister than a random act of violence. The chase is on. As Cici and Detective Sam Chastain edge closer to the truth, the murderer circles closer. This time, the criminal plots to stop Cici. Permanently. Additional Praise for A Pilgrimage to Death: "A wholly absorbing gumshoe tale elevated by an extraordinary detective." ~ Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "This winning mystery novel is a breeze to read and Cici's laidback approach as a reverend means that readers certainly don't have to be religious to find her relatable." ~ IndieReader

Women's Utopian and Dystopian Fiction by Sharon R. Wilson Summary

Women’s Utopian and Dystopian Fiction explores the genres of utopian and dystopian recent fiction. It is about how this literature of both imagined perfection and disaster creates new worlds and critiques gender roles, traditions, and values. Essays range in subject matter from Charlotte Perkins Gilman, P. D. James, Joanna Russ, and Marge Piercy, to Ursula Le Guin, Fay Weldon, and Toni Morrison. Two of the three sections focus on Doris Lessing and Margaret Atwood. Examining especially the twentieth century, including second-wave feminism, writers from Tunisia, Turkey, Italy, Korea, the US, and England give both an historical and a global perspective. Utopian and dystopian elements are explored in the Nobel-Prize-winning Doris Lessing’s Memoirs of a Survivor, the little-known Mara and Dann, and The Cleft; and new perspectives are offered on Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.

Ava Gardner by Lee Server Summary

"The most complete and engrossing biography yet of this exotic Southern girl...Excellent."—Liz Smith She was the sex symbol who dazzled all the other sex symbols. She was the temptress who drove Frank Sinatra to the brink of suicide and haunted him to the end of his life. Ernest Hemingway saved one of her kidney stones as a sacred memento, and Howard Hughes begged her to marry him—but she knocked out his front teeth instead. She was one of the great icons in Hollywood history—star of The Killers, The Barefoot Contessa, and The Night of the Iguana—and one of the few whose actual life was grander and more colorful than any movie. Her jaw-dropping beauty, charismatic presence, and fabulous, scandalous adventures fueled the legend of Ava Gardner—Hollywood's most glamorous, restless and uninhibited star. In this acclaimed first full biography of Gardner, Lee Server recreates—with great style and vivid detail—the actress's life, from her beginnings as a barefoot North Carolina farm girl to her heady days as a Hollywood goddess. He paints the full spectacle of her tumultuous private life—including her string of failed marriages to Mickey Rooney, Sinatra and Artie Shaw—and Gardner's lifelong search for adventure and love. Ava Gardner: "Love is Nothing" is both an exceptional work of biography and a richly entertaining read.

Possessions by Carmen De Monteflores Summary

POSSESSIONS tells the story of Meli and Lila, the Puerto Rican grandmother and her American granddaughter, separated for fifteen years by Lila's mother's buried hostility. Their secret reunion and Meli's death, fuel Lila's search through her grandmother's possessions to uncover the pain behind the strained family relationships. As Lila immerses herself in Meli's life, many questions arise: Did the film Meli intend to make showing her naked body ever get made and does it still exist? What was Meli's connection with the filmmaker, Marcos and with the model, Elaine? Why did Lila's mother, Felicia, reject her own mother? Meli's journals and tapes take Lila on a virtual journey from the luminous Northern California seashore to a surreal New York City of the 1950's, from the haunted Catholic girlhood in Puerto Rico to the revelatory birthing of a child in the Northern Plains, from innocence to violence and from terror to art. Through shifts in time and viewpoint, and through different narratives, Lila learns about Meli, the introverted Puerto Rican girl attending Catholic school, who is passionate about art and admires American culture. She reads about Meli's relationship with Papi, her father, who takes her to college in the U. S. Lila discovers the artwork Meli created in New York City and begins to understand Meli's longing for greater freedom in her life as an artist, despite being haunted by her history and the limitations of her restrictive upbringing.

S. in vivid images informed by her long training in art and by her poetic imagination. A mother, grandmother, lesbian, artist, psychotherapist, lover of nature and beauty, and student of shamanism, de Monteflores brings all of her lived experience to her rich and layered writing.
