The author of City Unique takes us back to the wicked old Montreal of 1948 in this fine, funny novel, where an innocent seventeen-year-old McGill student falls for a famous stripper “Catcher in the Rye meets Guys and Dolls”? Maybe. Or how about “Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall comes to Mordecai Richler’s Montreal”? Close. But best of all is simply this: “William Weintraub — friend of Richler, Moore, and Gallant — has quietly produced a mature comic masterpiece.” Our hero, Richard Lippman, is about to enter McGill and is desperate for two things — a sense of direction in life and, much more important, sexual experience with a real, live girl. Unknown to his “refined” Westmount parents, he’s brought into the exciting Montreal world of burlesque and brothels by his Uncle Morty, who introduces him to Lili L’Amour, the star stripper of the day. Before you know it, he’s (a) head over heels in love with Lili and (b) using his poetic talents to write the text for her routine, and even giving her tips on how to move. Much follows, including his creation of “Freckles, The Girl Next Door,” a stripping sensation. By day a respectful McGill student courted by campus Communists, by night a free-spending night-club sampler and reviewer — well, it’s quite a year for Richard. And this is quite a novel for all of us. Watch for falling prizes.
Em 1969, prestes a completar 14 anos, Rosália Araújo foi contratada para servir António de Oliveira Salazar. Durante anos, conheceu a vida doméstica do palacete de São Bento, liderada pela severa dona Maria, e o lado mais privado do Presidente do Conselho, com os seus hábitos, gostos, desgostos e segredos. No momento da sua morte, em 1970 foi a única empregada presente no quarto do ditador. A Última Criada de Salazar é o relato minucioso da decadência e dos dias do fim do homem que alcançou o poder em 1932 e só o perdeu três décadas mais tarde.

Hummingbird (Confessions of a Smitten Superhero Sidekick) Author: Sedonia Guillone Line: Tryst Length: 4,395 Genre: Gay erotica; Contemporary; Multi-cultural Sidekick and Bruce Lee look-alike Kit is not supposed to write about his superhero lover, The Hummingbird, but he can’t resist. Kit’s love…and lust…for the gorgeous muscular superhero just bubbles over and Kit is willing to spill ALL the juicy details… Excerpt: The press, his fans, the unappreciative dicks down at the Agency, and the asshole criminals he vanquishes night and day, call Liam ‘The Hummingbird.’ I guess I can’t blame them for having given him such a superficial title. They only know him from the outside, watching his magnificent, muscular body fly through the air at top speeds, hovering, moving up and down, backwards and forwards, snatching criminals from helicopters and airplanes as they make their getaways; saving screaming women and children from burning buildings and such.
Yeah, I know they can imagine the valiant heart beating in that broad chest dusted with swirls of raven dark hair, but they don’t know him all the way through, like I do. And I wouldn’t want them to. I have a terrible jealous streak. No one asks me anyway, however, because I’m only the sidekick. Sidekicks—a degrading expression for me considering that my hands and feet are registered with the Agency as deadly weapons and that I spend great deals of time covering The Hummingbird’s ass; okay, pun not intended—are never as important as the main superhero. Look what happened to Bruce Lee as Kato.
Talk about getting shafted in the bad way! To me, Liam Conner is an absolute wonder. Not because he can fly and because he’s drop-dead fine, but because of who he is. Of course, that’s the whole point of my writing all this down. And yes, I will give the delicious details even though I’m probably the only one who will ever read this memoir. Uh oh.
Sounds like he might be waking up. Looks over shoulder to where Liam’s still sleeping in bed. Sigh of relief that eyes are closed, mind is oblivious to what lover-sidekick is doing behind his back. Liam would be pissed if he thought I was writing about him and not keeping my daily log of our exploits for the Agency. Uh oh, the sheet has slipped down, giving me a full view of his perfect hard ass. Stirrings of a raging hard-on in sidekick. If Liam weren’t so exhausted from saving the world, I’d slip right back in with him and… sigh as forces self back to writing. I guess you could say my complete body—soul devotion to him is because I burn for him through and through.
Who wouldn’t after eight years of working together—and well…relaxing too…night and day? And after what he did for me. But I’m getting ahead of myself. In order to convey the fullness of my feelings for him, I’ll have to start at the beginning of our…ahem…association. It was actually Hummingbird who saved my ass first.
