After her debut with the widely praised stories in Blood and Milk, Sharon Solwitz offers us her first, darkly radiant, full-length novel. Bloody Mary, which takes its title from the childhood game, tells the story of socially adept, 12-year-old Hadley and her protective mother. They live a privileged life in the Chicago neighborhood of Lakeview, but soon find themselves in a state of chaos and flux. Writing with her signature, edgy prose and ironic humor, Solwitz demonstrates that happiness "isn't our birthright" and that "we have to work for it and even then we can't be sure." We are led to consider our own degree of complicity in the hard times that seem to fall from nowhere. "A flair for dark comedy and the ability to turn on a dime are prized qualities for these unpredictable characters; time and again, their intrepid investigations lead them into uncharted territory where bizarre dramatic action seems to be the only possible move. Solwitz's fine-toothed examinations of complex emotional states are dead on...."--The New York Times Book Review Sharon Solwitz's first collection of stories, Blood and Milk, won the 1998 Carl Sandburg Prize from Friends of the Chicago Public Library, the prize for adult fiction from the Society of Midland Authors, and was a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award. Her short stories, published in such magazines as TriQuarterly, Mademoiselle, and Ploughshares, have won numerous awards, including the Pushcart Prize, the Katherine Anne Porter Prize, and grants and fellowships from the Illinois Arts Council. Currently, along with her husband, poet Barry Silesky, she has worked as fiction editor of Another Chicago Magazine. She teaches fiction at Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana.

In this groundbreaking new biography of "Bloody Mary," Linda Porter brings to life a queen best remembered for burning hundreds of Protestant heretics at the stake, but whose passion, will, and sophistication have for centuries been overlooked. Daughter of Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon, wife of Philip of Spain, and sister of Edward VI, Mary Tudor was a cultured Renaissance princess. A Latin scholar and outstanding musician, her love of fashion was matched only by her zeal for gambling. It is the tragedy of Queen Mary that today, 450 years after her death, she remains the most hated, least understood monarch in English history. Linda Porter's pioneering new biography—based on contemporary documents and drawing from recent scholarship—cuts through the myths to reveal the truth about the first queen to rule England in her own right. Mary learned politics in a hard school, and was cruelly treated by her father and bullied by the strongmen of her brother, Edward VI. An audacious coup brought her to the throne, and she needed all her strong will and courage to keep it. Mary made a grand marriage to Philip of Spain, but her attempts to revitalize England at home and abroad were cut short by her premature death at the age of forty-two. The first popular biography of Mary in thirty years, The First Queen of England offers a fascinating, controversial look at this much-maligned queen.

Here is the tragic, stormy life of Mary Tudor, daughter of Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon. Her story is a chronicle of courage and faith, betrayal and treachery-set amidst the splendor, pageantry, squalor, and intrigue of sixteenth-century Europe. The history of Mary Tudor is an improbable blend of triumph, humiliation, heartbreak, and devotion-and Ms. Erickson recounts it all against the turbulent background of European politics, war, and religious strife of the mid-1500s. The result is a rare portrait of the times and of a woman elevated to unprecedented power in a world ruled and defined by men.

As the daughter of King Henry VIII, Mary Tudor grew up in a royal court that simmered with political intrigue, religious strife, and the ever-present danger of beheading. Surviving a childhood filled with treachery and tragedy, Mary defeated an army of rebels to win the crown of England. At a time when women were expected to marry, not to rule, she was determined to do both. Courageous, loyal, and loving, she is nonetheless known to history as "Bloody Mary" for the religious persecutions of her reign. Yet it might be fairer to say she ruled in a bloody age. "McHargue always delivers the historical goods in wonderful packages. This short biography . . . is clear-sighted, wonderfully readable, and compelling."--Jane Yolen, author of a National Book Award Honor Book, a Caldecott Medal winner, a World Fantasy Award Winner, and many other distinguished books for young people. "This exciting series will fill a long-standing need for topnotch biographies of the many dynamic women from ancient, medieval, and early modern times."--Burch Ford, Past President, National Coalition of Girls' Schools, and Head of Miss Porter's School

Um seinem besten Freund zu beweisen, dass alles reine Fiktion ist, ruft er den Rachegeist und sieht sich plötzlich Bloody Mary gegenüber. Aber ist sie tatsächlich so blutrünstig, wie die Legende behauptet? Oder steckt hinter der Furcht einflößenden Gestalt nur ein einsames Mädchen, das sich nach Mitgefühl und Wärme sehnt? Avian versucht, zu Mary Jane Wyler durchzudringen, doch er spielt dabei mit seinem Leben. »In der Welt der Toten gibt es drei Regeln: Zeige keine Gnade, zeige keine Schwäche, zeige keine Gefühle. Ich habe jede einzelne gebrochen.«
