Fresh out of the Israeli Army, twenty-year-old Iris Bahr decides to follow the footsteps of many before her and backpack through Asia. Only unlike the average traveler, she has more in mind than just seeing the sights: she is on a desperate mission to lose her virginity. Dork Whore is a fresh and funny memoir about a young woman whose quirky personality and embarrassing neuroses always seem to get in the way of her getting what she wants. As Iris lands in hotel rooms in Bangkok, rides scooters out of opium-fogged compounds hidden in the jungle, and antagonizes an impromptu tour group in Vietnam, she begins to realize that the greatest obstacle she'll have to overcome isn't losing her virginity, but coming to terms with the reasons for her need to be accepted. Poignant, hilarious, and always original, Dork Whore is a remarkable mix of bawdy humor and heartbreaking moments, witty intelligence and touching personal discoveries. Iris Bahr has given us an unforgettable coming-of-age tale about how a young woman finally learns how to trust others--and her own judgment.

John McManus joined the Provisional wing of the IRA, to assuage his conscience. Now he wants nothing more that to escape the world of mindless violence and brutality in which he finds himself enmeshed. Pursued by IRA gunmen, he flees the length of Ireland—by automobile, by bus, on foot—desperately struggling to outrun the consequences of his past. Two women conspire to help him flee his pursuers: Kate Burker who passion for Joh and her for her country rages even in the shadow of gunmen; and Brendine Healy, an American girl who should never have left Boston. He cuts a wide swath across Ireland, encountering romantics and killers, and the courageous and decent people of both the North and the South. If one of the tests of a good novel is that its characters stick with the reader for weeks on end, and if another is that it informs him and makes him think, then The Whore-Mother is by both measures a superior novel. In it the agony of Ireland becomes a metaphor for the nature of violence itself.

In a serene, sensuous style of writing and through a compelling narrative of great psychological depth, Rembrandt's Whore does for the Dutch Master what Tracy Chevalier's Girl with a Pearl Earring did for Vermeer. Immortalised in many of his greatest works of portraiture, Hendrickje Stoffels was Rembrandt's common law wife – and it is through her eyes that we are plunged into the midst of both a passionate affair and a turbulent era of Dutch history. First a servant, then his lover and confidante, Hendrickje fills the void in Rembrandt's life after the death of his wife and two of their children. But whilst they celebrate beauty, truth and art, Hendrickje is fated to discover the hypocrisy and fickleness of Amsterdam society, which ostracises her and precipitates Rembrandt's final collapse.

As soon as men began to write, they made Helen of Troy their subject; for nearly three thousand years she has been both the embodiment of absolute female beauty and a reminder of the terrible power that beauty can wield. Because of her double marriage to the Greek King Menelaus and the Trojan Prince Paris, Helen was held responsible for both the Trojan War and enduring enmity between East and West. For millennia she has been viewed as an exquisite agent of extermination. But who was she? Helen exists in many guises: a matriarch from the Age of Heroes who ruled over one of the most fertile areas of the Mycenaean world; Helen of Sparta, the focus of a cult which conflated Helen the heroine with a pre-Greek fertility goddess; the home-wrecker of the Iliad; the bitch-whore of Greek tragedy; the pin-up of Romantic artists. Focusing on the 'real' Helen - a flesh-and-blood aristocrat from the Greek Bronze Age - acclaimed historian Bettany Hughes reconstructs the context of life for this elusive pre-historic princess and places her alongside the heroes and heroines of myth and history. Through the eyes of a young Mycenaean woman, Hughes examines the physical, historical and cultural traces that Helen has left on locations in Greece, North Africa and Asia Minor. Vivid and compelling, this remarkable book brilliantly unpacks the facts and myths surrounding one of the most enigmatic and notorious figures of all time.
