Though her work is a staple of anthologies of American poetry, Anne Bradstreet has never before been the subject of an accessible, full-scale biography for a general audience. Anne Bradstreet is known for her poem, To My Dear and Loving Husband, among others, and through John Berryman's Homage to Mistress Bradstreet. With her first collection, The Tenth Muse Lately Sprung Up in America, she became the first published poet, male or female, of the New World. Many New England towns were founded and settled by Anne Bradstreet's family or their close associates -- characters who appear in these pages.

Secretary of State, Randall Tanner, was shocked when he read the Top Secret file discovered by one of his Ambassadors that revealed that the President was guilty of treason. After three agonizing days he decided that there was no other solution: The President had to die. Tanner initiated a plot to have President Ted Hoskins assassinated in a way that would make his death look like an accident. Fearing what she might know about the President's activities, the plotters also killed Hoskins' mistress, the Secretary of the Interior, Sarah Brewster. For five years it looked like they had gotten away with it, until Sarah's alcoholic husband found her diary including the details of her affair with the President. Broke, drunk and angry, the husband contacted an ex-CIA agent turned international affairs writer to ghost-write a book spilling all of Hoskins' dirty secrets, revelations that would raise questions that the conspirators couldn't afford to have asked. The killers quickly got rid of Sarah's husband, but by then the diary had fallen into the hands of his daughter, Allison, and the ghostwriter, Steve Grant. Barely one step ahead of the killers, Steve and Allison desperately search for Sarah's last hidden file that contains the whole story about the President, a file they have to find before the killers find them if they expect to have any hope of staying alive.

Annotation An extraordinary recovered text. ... Kilcup brings Lorenza Berbineau before readers as a woman, domestic servant, traveler, and diarist, thereby advancing our understanding of all four variables in American cultural studies more broadly." Phyllis Cole, author of Mary Moody Emerson and the Origins of Transcendentalism: A Family HistoryBecause prior studies of American women's travel writing have focused exclusively on middle-class and wealthy travelers, it has been difficult to assess the genre and its participants in a holistic fashion. One of the very few surviving working-class travel diaries, Lorenza Stevens Berbineau's account provides readers with a unique perspective of a domestic servant in the wealthy Lowell family in Boston. Staying in luxurious hotels and caring for her young charge Eddie during her six-month grand tour, Berbineau wrote detailed and insightful entries about the people and places she saw. Contributing to the traditions of women's, diary, and travel literature from the perspective of a domestic servant, Berbineau's narrative reveals an arresting and intimate outlook on both her own life and the activities, places, and people she encounters. For example, she carefully records Europeans' religious practices, working people and their behavior, and each region's aesthetic qualities. Clearly writing in haste and with a pleasing freedom from the constraints of orthographic and stylistic convention, Berbineau offers a distinctive voice and a discerning perspective. Alert to nuances of social class, her narrative is as appealing and informative to today's readers as it no doubt was to her fellow domestics in the Lowell household. Unobtrusively edited to retain as much as possible the individuality and texture of the author's original manuscript, From Beacon Hill to the Crystal Palace offers readers brief framing summaries, informative endnotes, and a valuable introduction that analyzes Berbineau's narrative in relation to gender and class issues and compares it to the published travel writing of her famous contemporary, Harriet Beecher Stowe. Karen Kilcup is professor of American literature, University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Named a U.S. National Distinguished Teacher in 1987, she was recently the Davidson Eminent Scholar Chair at Florida International University. She is the editor of Soft Canons: American Women Writers and Masculine Tradition (University of Iowa, 1999) and Nineteenth-Century American Women Writers: An Anthology and the author of Robert Frost and Feminine Literary Tradition.

A FLASH OF DIAMONDS is a richly detailed novel of Geneva society in a jaded 1980s Europe. The story revolves around a Genevois private banker smugly 'managing' an elegant, competent wife and a clever, spoiled mistress. From Beacon Hill to the Beau Rivage, from Chicago to chateau, both American women are dazzling--at their best and at their worst. Everything changes for all three of them one bright summer afternoon in that city on the lake.
