*Gold Medal Winner in the Sexuality / Relationships Category of the 2011 IPPY Awards* * Honorary Mention in the 2010 BOTYA Awards Women's Issues Category * Girls with Asperger's Syndrome are less frequently diagnosed than boys, and even once symptoms have been recognised, help is often not readily available. The image of coping well presented by AS females of any age can often mask difficulties, deficits, challenges, and loneliness. This is a must-have handbook written by an Aspergirl for Aspergirls, young and old. Rudy Simone guides you through every aspect of both personal and professional life, from early recollections of blame, guilt, and savant skills, to friendships, romance and marriage. Employment, career, rituals and routines are also covered, along with depression, meltdowns and being misunderstood. Including the reflections of over thirty-five women diagnosed as on the spectrum, as well as some partners and parents, Rudy identifies recurring struggles and areas where Aspergirls need validation, information and advice. As they recount their stories, anecdotes, and wisdom, she highlights how differences between males and females on the spectrum are mostly a matter of perception, rejecting negative views of Aspergirls and empowering them to lead happy and fulfilled lives. This book will be essential reading for females of any age diagnosed with AS, and those who think they might be on the spectrum. It will also be of interest to partners and loved ones of Aspergirls, and anybody interested either professionally or academically in Asperger's Syndrome.
'It was the middle of November, I was supposed to be out jogging, but instead I was sitting at my breakfast table talking about men, sex, werewolves and vampires. I should be concentrating on my dangerous situation - the ardeur between me and Jean-Claude, Master Vampire of the City, and Richard, my werewolf lover, is reaching new levels, evolving into something altogether new, acting with a will of its own.' But instead Anita Blake, preternatural expert and feared executioner, is less interested in vampire politics than in the ancient, ordinary dread that women down the ages have experienced: am I pregnant? And, if so, is the father a vampire, a werewolf or someone else entirely. And being a Federal Marshall, known for raising the dead and hunting vampires, is no way to bring up a baby.

Emile Zola was an elegant writer -- more elegant than his reputation as a political firebrand might suggest. Zola's most famous work was a newspaper article: his impassioned defense of imprisoned Captain Alfred Dreyfus, ""J'accuse."" "Rome" is the second volume of "The Three Cities (Les Trois Villes)," first published in 1896. The first volume tells of the troubled priest Pierre Froment's journey to "Lourdes," hoping to find a cure for his spiritual doubts. In "Rome," Pierre travels to the Holy City, hoping to persuade the Pope to approve of his Christian, socialist theories. The final book of the trilogy, "Paris," tells of Pierre's return to the City of Light, watching the fall of Catholicism, and the rise of Pierre's new "faith" of scientific rationalism. A continuation of Zola's great twenty-novel sequence, "Les Rougon-Macquart," among which are "Nana, Germinal," and "La Dbcle, Rome" is a book written by Zola at the end of his career, during which his powers were thought to be at their highest.
