              I m not funny at all. What I am is brave. Lucille Ball With powerhouses like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Amy Schumer dominating the entertainment landscape and memoirs from today s most vocal feminist comediennes shooting up the bestseller lists, women in comedy have never been mo...re influential.

From I Love Lucy to SNL to today s rising cable and web-series stars, Anna Fields entertaining retrospective combines amusing and honest personal narratives with the historical, political, and cultural contexts of the feminist movement. With interview subjects like Abbi Jacobson, Mo Collins, and Liza Winstead among othersas well as actresses, stand-up comics, writers, producers, and female comedy troupesFields shares true stories of wit and heroism from some of our most treasured (and under-represented) artists. At its heart, The Girl in the Show captures the urgency of our continued struggle towards equality, allowing the reader to both revel inand rebel againstour collective ideas of women s comedy.

              Vra, the story of Mrs. Vladimir Nabokov, brings to shimmering life one of the greatest literary love stories of our time. Vladimir Nabokov wrote his books first for himself and secondly for his wife. Set in prewar Europe and postwar America and spanning much of the twentieth cent...ury, this telling of the Nabokovs' fifty-two-year marriage reads as vividly as a novel. Vra, both beautiful and brilliant, is its outsized heroine, a woman who loves as deeply and intelligently as did the great romantic heroines of Austen and Tolstoy. Stacy Schiff's Vra is a triumph of the biographical form.

              A childs mind is hungry for knowledge, stimulation, and the excitement of learning which school should provideyet most American schools fall far short. From kindergarten through high school, our public educational system is among the worst in the developed world. In disdaining co...ntent-based curricula for abstract (and discredited) theories of how a child learns, our schools have done terrible harm to Americas students. Instead of preparing them for the highly competitive, information-based economy in which we now live, our school practices have severely curtailed their abilityand desireto learn. But research has shown that if children are taught in ways that emphasize hard work, the learning of facts, and rigorous testing, their enthusiasm for school will grow, their test scores will rise, and they will become successful citizens of the information age.

              Christy Loren has come to fear her gift of clairvoyance, an unwanted legacy from her mother, a famous psychic. Without warning, visions envelop her--visions that have guided the police, too late, to the bodies of murder victims. To escape these horrors, Christy flees her home in ...Long Island to seek peace and safety in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains and the reassuring presence of her down-to-earth aunt. But she finds that threatening mysteries await her in those mountains--mysteries that surround a writer's recent death and the disappearance of the unearthly, enigmatic Deirdre. Christy senses secrets locked in the heart of Deirdre's tormented husband, with whom she fears she is becoming too emotionally involved--and haunting Deirdre's troubled son. Caught in this ominous web, Christy must come to terms with her unwanted psychic powers. As she is drawn into the search for Deirdre, she sees with increasing clarity that the mysteries have a connection to a blood-chilling dream that haunts her. In trying to escape her fate, she has unwittingly embraced it. Now, to uncover the truth, Christy must confront her gift of precognition and her dream. The shocking truth will bring her face-to-face with real and terrifying danger.
