As a child, she had played for the royal courts of Europe with her brother, yet in adolescence she was left at home in Salzburg with her mother, while her father and Mozart lived in Italy.

The consequences are explored with perception and sympathy for each member and for Nannerl in particular as an eighteenth century female of considerable musical gifts. In 1770, Mozart wrote to his sister from Rome to praise her composition, urging her to send him more. none of her music survives and A. M. Bauld has included one of her own compositions in homage. The novel follows Nannerl Mozart¿s life through marriage, children, widowhood and death in conversations with her nephew, Franz Xaver, Mozart¿s younger son. Interwoven is a fictional account of what may have happened to Mozart¿s body. it is a story with subplots ingeniously constructed from the few known facts.

The True Life Story of..., Caldwell, Esther; Craney, Jan [Editors]
3 Caldwell, Esther; Craney, Jan [Editors] The True Life Story of...
Australia UQP 1981 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
144 pages. The stories in this collection are by Australian women who have used women's experiences as a basis for their work. Each explores what it means to be a woman in Australia in this day and age. Some are written by established authors who have many published and performed works to their name; others are by women who have published little or have just begun to express themselves in writing fiction; one story first appeared in the twelve-years-and-under section of a school essay contest. The stories are grouped in three sections. The first deals with girls learning about the world and themselves, sometimes being overwhelmed by things, sometimes winning through. The second deals with girls and women who are confined, imprisoned physically or mentally or both. The third deals with girls and women breaking out of their situations, trusting themselves, recognizing their strengths and weaknesses, and using their experiences to become more the people they want to be. Although diverse in style and content, these stories all have one thing in common: the conviction that women's experiences are significant, and they explore and record these experiences in imaginative and revealing ways. Jan Craney now works as co-ordinator for the Department of Sport and Recreation in Sydney. She was previously a tutor in education at Macquarie University but has also worked as secondary school teacher; librarian; arid vocational psychologist. She has co-authored a number of articles on women and post-school education and the workforce and co-edited a book entitled Family Violence in Australia. Book contents: Introduction; Mr. Macnamee / Mary Dadswell; The help all league / Winsome Smith; In the bath / Rhyll McMaster; The discovery of sin / Winsome Smith; Secret society / Kate Veitch; The lady and the cow / Lillian Rosser; Aubade / Marian Eldridge; The good mother / Laurel Cunningham; The commercial traveller / Paddy McCorry; The true life story of Martha Bloggs / Carmel Settree; No trouble / Rhyll McMaster; Absentee / Mona Brand; Mark F / Elizabeth Jolley; Squash / Finola Moorhead; Goose chase / Berwyn Lewis; The day of the perfume / Penny Nelson; Sunning by the pool / Christine Townend; The clean-up / Leone Shapiro; The flutter / Susan Clilverd; Revelation / Barbara Mcfarlane; Nanny Crisp and the tamarind tree / Mona Brand; A gentleman's agreement / Elizabeth Jolley.

Feminism and Theatre, Case, Sue-Ellen
4 Case, Sue-Ellen Feminism and Theatre
U. K. Macmillan 1994 0333390008 / 9780333390009 Reprint Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
149 indexed pages. This study serves as both an introduction to, and an overview of, the relationship between feminism and theatre. lt raises questions for the feminist historian who inherits a tradition of theatre history in which women playwrights and actresses are conspicuously absent and constructs an alternative history of what women have done. In analyzing radical feminism and theatre, materialist feminism and theatre and women of colour, the author explains how political movement has influenced the stage. In examining the development of feminist aesthetics, experiments in organization, performance style and audience, Sue-Ellen Case simultaneously traces the new role of the female actor, the new position of the spectator, the new form of play and the new role of the critic. Examples from the United States, Britain, France and Germany are used to illustrate the common ground and the differences between the feminisms and the women in theatre in these countries.

Australia Liz De Grossan Pty 1983 0959182209 / 9780959182200 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
123 pages including b/w illustrations. Liz de Crossan is living testimony to her involvement in health and beauty. Now in her early thirties, she was named in the Australian Book of Lists this year as one of Australia’s ten most beautiful women. Liz was born in Ireland and came to Australia at the age of twelve, too late to lose the Irish lilt to her voice. At sixteen she began modelling and within two years was one of Australia’s top models. While Liz has briefly departed the beauty business for stints in Television as a producer and as a restaurateur, she came back to health and beauty as her career choice, qualifying for her Diploma in Advanced Beauty Therapy. Liz is known for her outspoken views on health and vitality and this programme has been devised because she grew tired of the nonsense and the stupid promises so much of the beauty business was making. Nobody gets beautiful or healthy by dipping a forefinger into a jar of cream or by playfully waving your arms and legs around for a couple of minutes every day. Good diet and some hard work with your body is essential, and the creams and the lotions you use you should fully understand." she says emphatically. This little book contains an entire exercise programme using the L’il Trimmer Portable Exerciser but it doesn’t stop there. Diet is included, with recipes that work but don’t taste like a plate of cardboard. Liz even includes a section on Sexercising and the benefits of a healthy sex life. She explains how you can give yourself a facelift without surgery, goes into proper long term hair-care which includes her famous Daily Hair Cocktail", the way to use water and vitamins to retard aging and how to recognise and avoid a short term diet that may actually harm you. As Liz puts it: With a woman it’s thighs to bust that becomes the hang-up. Legs stay good long after the mid section has given up. My programme concentrates on slimming, firming, maintaining and shaping the flabby parts of the female body.

Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women: Romance Writers on the Appeal of the Romance (New Cultural Studies), Doreen Owens Malek, Jayne Ann Krentz, Laura Kinsale, Linda Barlow, Mary Jo Putney
7 Doreen Owens Malek, Jayne Ann Krentz, Laura Kinsale, Linda Barlow, Mary Jo Putney Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women: Romance Writers on the Appeal of the Romance (New Cultural Studies)
U.S.A. University of Pennsylvania Press 1992 0812214110 / 9780812214116 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 12mo 
186 indexed pages including bibliography. In this book, Jayne Ann Krentz and its other contributors - all best-selling romance writers - explode myths and biases that haunt both the writers and readers of romances. In this seamless, ultimately fascinating, and controversial book, the authors dispute some of the notions that plague their profession, including the time-worn theory that the romance genre contains only one single, monolithic story, which is cranked out over and over again. The authors discuss positive life-affirming values inherent in all romances: the celebration of female power, courage, intelligence, and gentleness; the inversion of the power structure of a patriarchal society; and the integration of male and female. Several of the essays also discuss the issue of reader identification with the characters, a relationship that is far more complex than most critics realize.

Eve Ensler A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery.

U. K. Avon Books 1994 1897960921 / 9781897960929 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
160 pages. This book was written with the desire of bringing something of this beautiful tradition to the interested reader who does not have access to the theological libraries and wants something that avoids too much technical terminology while giving solid information. The Reclaiming of Wisdom is at once both a scholarly and highly accessible book which examines the role of Sophia, who was revered as the female embodiment of Divinity long before the supremacy of YHWH became acknowledged in Palestine. Such was the potency of her presence in the consciousness of the people that it was difficult for her memory to be entirely erased from the Scriptures. The author takes us back to the contemporary texts with an unerring and compelling enthusiasm, demonstrating beyond doubt the continuing topical relevance of Sophia today as a keystone of women’s important and rightful place in the church.

153 pages. Does a wife exist only when her husband is contemplating her? A wife is called into being only by a husband: therefore does she cease to exist when he stops observing her, stops regarding her? Elinor leaves her husband suddenly and goes to France, to the village of Severac-le-Chateau. There she ponders the lives of other women. In the seventeenth century a wife is murdered for faithlessness; in the early twentieth century a woman embroiders sheets for a trousseau never needed; in the 1980s a successful pediatrician may or may not know what her husband is up to. Elinor's process of transformation - from a wife to a self - is written with subtlety and humour. The journey she undertakes is more than a journey of the flesh. Marion Mildred Halligan is an Australian writer and novelist. She worked as a school teacher and journalist as well.

Dame Edna Everage and the Rise of Western Civilisation: Backstage with Barry Humphries, Lahr, John
17 Lahr, John Dame Edna Everage and the Rise of Western Civilisation: Backstage with Barry Humphries
U.S.A. University of California Press 2000 0520223055 / 9780520223059 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
xi + 243 pages including b/w illustrations. John Lahr is one of the most celebrated critics of the performing arts. Winner of Britain's 1992 Roger Machell Award for the best writing about public performance, "Dame Edna Everage and the Rise of Western Civilisation" is an insider's account of a great clown and a great act. It takes us backstage at London's Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, with Barry Humphries, and into the weird and wonderful world of his show-stopping creation - Dame Edna Everage. Humphries is a prodigious comic talent. His copresence in Edna - a character so real to the public that her autobiography, "My Gorgeous Life", appeared on the nonfiction list - actively invites speculation about reality and fantasy, male and female. With her 'natural wisteria' hair and her harlequin eyeglasses, Dame Edna was the first solo performer to sell out the most famous theater in England, and she also took the United States by storm, filling theaters from coast to coast. Hilarious and malign, polite and rude, highbrow and very low, the character Barry Humphries inhabits is a bundle of contradictions. John Lahr, the son of another comic genius, takes us behind the scenes to investigate how a provincial dandy from Melbourne transformed himself into one of the most unlikely megastars of today. In showing the connection between Humphries' comedy and the life it parodies, "Dame Edna Everage and the Rise of Western Civilisation" goes beyond reportage to an exploration of the nature of comedy, a subject that Lahr has pursued over the years in his acclaimed biographies of "Bert Lahr", "Noel Coward", and "Joe Orton". Richly entertaining and engagingly written, this book is an anecdotal treatise on the nature of comedy and an absorbing inquiry into what makes us laugh.

U.S.A. New World Library 2001 0915811936 / 9780915811939 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
106 pages. This book opens with the story of Dan Millman’s encounter with a female sage of great wisdom in the wooded hills near his home. Seemingly ageless, with mutable features and lightning quick reflexes, she takes him on an odyssey of spiritual discovery. Through stories, tests, and experiences in the wild, the sage challenges Millman to examine 12 core principles that underlie human existence: balance, choice, process, presence, compassion, faith, expectation, integrity, action, cycles, surrender, and unity. The book shows how these keys - at the heart of every religion, culture, and moral system - can lead to a deeper sense of meaning, connection, and harmony with the world. It also shows readers how these principles can transform relationships, careers, finance, and health. Quotations and reminders from across the centuries inform and inspire readers as they accompany Millman on his journey.
