Explanation of the Book:

For many years, the interrelated histories of prostitution and cities have perked the ears of urban scholars, but until now the history of urban sex work has dealt only in passing with questions of race. In I’ve Got to Make My Livin’, Cynthia Blair explores African American women’s sex work in Chicago during the decades of some of the city’s most explosive growth, expanding not just our view of prostitution, but also of black women’s labor, the Great Migration, black and white reform movements, and the emergence of modern sexuality. Focusing on the notorious sex districts of the city’s south side, Blair paints a complex portrait of black prostitutes as conscious actors and historical agents; prostitution, she argues here, was both an arena of exploitation and abuse, as well as a means of resisting middle-class sexual and economic norms. Blair ultimately illustrates just how powerful these norms were, offering stories about the struggles that emerged among black and white urbanites in response to black women’s increasing visibility in the city’s sex economy. Through these powerful narratives, I’ve Got to Make My Livin’ reveals the intersecting racial struggles and sexual anxieties that underpinned the celebration of Chicago as the quintessentially modern twentieth-century city.

How do you say, 'So many men, so little time,' in French? Well, Emma Sullivan can always figure that out later. The point is -- she's in Paris! Which would be great, except that she's stuck doing public relations for one of the hottest -- and craziest -- rock stars on the planet. Making things worse is Gabriel Francoeur, the sexy and stubborn reporter who refuses to believe her when she tells him that her client was just playing Go Fish in that hotel room with all those scantily-clad girls.... But Emma will always have Paris. The City of Light, of romance, of high fashion and of unfathomable varieties of cheese. If a girl can't reinvent herself here, there's no hope! It's time to leave the old Emma Sullivan behind and become someone courageous, exciting, successful. The type of girl who, when faced with a reporter who won't stop asking questions, knows just what to do. After all, they don't call it French kissing for nothing!

Livin Po in Sandbed Hell
Author: J. Gordon Long
Pages: 262
ISBN: 0970219075
Available:
Release: 2001
Editor: Unknown
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Livin PO in Sandbed Hell is a nonfiction, humorous autobiographical memoir about desperation and the "Poverty Motivational Method." There are no pretensions. The language is vintage Country PO, sometimes quite plain and coarse. Many will identify the grinding poverty and the resulting indignities to the mind, body and soul. To win was to ESCAPE! The book is amusing, sad, and sometimes gut busting funny. The endless back breaking work in the sun roasted fields, planting, plowing, and harvesting on an eighty acre row crop farm is vivid. In the rural south, poverty was an "Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Condition" for both whites and blacks. "Saving for a rainy day" was an absurd concept, since it was always monsoon season for the PO. Being "Poor" was way upscale from "PO", and I shall forever present it in capital letters!

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Matthew McConaughey is a Hollywood star with an Oscar to his name and the world at his feet.Growing up in Texas, the youngest of three boys, he was known for his good looks and charm. His acting career began quietly with TV commercials, B movies and lowbudget independent films, which included the much respected coming of age drama Dazed and Confused. In 1996, his big break came as lawyer Jack Brigance in A Time to Kill, based on the best-selling legal thriller by John Grisham, and he was subsequently cast in such acclaimed films as Amistad, Contact, Edtv and U-571.However the new millennium brought an unfortunate change in his fortunes as he moved into risible romantic comedies. Movies such as The Wedding Planner, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, Failure To Launch, Fool's Gold and Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past were only moderately successful and failed to win over the critics; the critical acclaim that he garnered in the nineties as a serious actor was a thing of the past, and McConaughey desperately needed to reinvent himself.The Lincoln Lawyer, released in 2011, commenced McConaughey's revival and he returned to serious roles in such revered films as Bernie, Killer Joe, Magic Mike and Dallas Buyers Club, which won him a Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Lead Actor in 2014. He was also cast with Woody Harrelson in HBO's critically acclaimed series True Detective which won him rave reviews. Happily married to Brazilian model Camila Alves, the McConaughey's live in Austin, Texas with their three children. This is the authoritative biography of one of Hollywood's leading lights.
