Their Eros-story led to some of Lewis's greatest works, yet Joy is most commonly known for how she died. Becoming Mrs. Lewis allows us to see how this brilliant and passionate woman lived--and why she stole Jack's heart"--

Shauntae Randall knows she's not smart or talented at much of anything, but she also knows she's gorgeous and can handle herself around a man. So, she's made a career of it. She thought she had struck gold a few years back when she was lucky enough to get pregnant by Devon Wright. She knew they'd get married, he would take care of her and her baby, and she'd be set for life. What Shauntae didn't know was that it's much harder to keep a man than it is to catch him. Now she's lost custody of the child and the child support check and has to go back to hustling. Shauntae is lucky enough to get herself pregnant by Gary Jackson. She knows she has to figure out how to be a good wife to Gary and a good mother to their child to keep herself in his big, fancy house and his big, fancy car. She has to learn to talk "proper" and say all the right things at the right time. The absolute worst thing is that Shauntae must learn how to be a "church girl." When issues with Gary's ex-wife and kids threaten Shauntae's "get married and stay married" plan, it's actually God that helps her out. Shauntae decides that instead of hustling God, she might want to get to know Him. But can an ex-hustler really shed her old ways and become a true Christian, and a good wife and mother?

In Encounters with Melanie Klein: Selected Papers of Elizabeth Spillius the author argues that her two professions, anthropology and psychoanalysis, have much in common, and explains how her background in anthropology led her on to a profound involvement in psychoanalysis and her establishment as a leading figure amongst Kleinian analysts. Spillius describes what she regards as the important features of Kleinian thought and discusses the research she has carried out in Melanie Klein's unpublished archive, including Klein's views on projective identification. Spillius's own clinical ideas make up the last part of the book with papers on envy, phantasy, technique, the negative therapeutic reaction and otherness. Her writing has a clarity which is very particular to her; she conveys complicated ideas in a most straightforward manner, well illustrated with pertinent clinical material. This book represents fifty years of the developing thought and scholarship of a talented and dedicated psychoanalyst.

"Kathryn Lindskoog, of whom C. S. Lewis said that she knows his work better than anyone, has some serious questions for the guardians of the gates of the C. S. Lewis estate. Her careful, meticulous research results in many questions that no one seems to want to answer. Did Lewis write the posthumous book The Dark Tower? Or, was it written by someone connected to the estate? Who owns the C. S. Lewis estate? Is what the estate saying about Lewis true or false? Finally, the scandal of the Chronicles of Narnia may be the biggest and most misleading of all. Rearranging the order of the books against Lewis's wishes is just a minor part of the problem." "Lindskoog answers these and a multitude of other questions regarding the keepers of the keys to one of the most significant estates in literary history. Anyone who reads this book will be enlightened to one of the greatest literary frauds in history. While Lindskoog offers a veritable wall of granite-like evidence she does not set here the final word. The book is but a beacon to join in the quest to discover the truth. This is a manifesto regarding the integrity and honesty of literary estates in general, and a daring quest to find answers to significant questions regarding the Lewis estate in particular."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
