Chris Sutton enjoyed a hugely successful career at some of Britain's biggest clubs. One of the greatest strikers of modern times, he starred beside and played for some of the biggest names in world football - Larsson, Shearer, Dalglish, Vialli. Now, in Paradise and Beyond, the Celtic, Blackburn and Norwich legend opens his heart on his incredible life story and lifts the lid on the battles he fought on and off the pitch in a controversial and successful fifteen-year career. From a YTS trainee at Norwich to the dugout at Lincoln, Chris has experienced the game from minnow to millionaire. Now for the first time he reveals his early success at Norwich and how he nearly lost out on his record-breaking ?5million move to Blackburn after spending a night behind bars. And he tells the truth about his relationship with England superstar Shearer at Ewood Park. Chris enjoyed the most successful spell of his career at Parkhead and he relives the glory and success under Martin O'Neill. But he tells exactly why he holds Gordon Strachan responsible for him having to leave Celtic in 2006. Chris lifts the lid on why his dream move to Chelsea turned sour and his bust-up with boss Vialli on the morning of an FA Cup Final. And for the first time Chris unveils the truth behind why he chose to snub Glenn Hoddle's England and his regrets at turning down the chance of playing for his country. This candid autobiography also has exclusive no-holds-barred interviews from the managers he played under, from O'Neill to Dalglish to Vialli. Paranoid. Sublime. Manic. Influential. Opinionated. Intelligent. All adjectives used by them to sum up Sutton. And off the pitch, he opens up on the traumatic experience of watching his baby son James fighting for his life and reveals the trauma of his own cancer scare. Controversy followed him throughout his career and continues to do so throughout this book.

The first Latin American actor to become a superstar, Ramon Novarro was for years one of Hollywood’s top actors. Born Ramon Samaniego to a prominent Mexican family, he arrived in America in 1916, a refugee from civil wars. By the mid-1920s, he had become one of MGM’s biggest box office attractions, starring in now-classic films, including The Student Prince, Mata Hari, and the original version of Ben-Hur. He shared the screen with the era’s top leading ladies, such as Greta Garbo, Myrna Loy, Joan Crawford, and Norma Shearer, and he became Rudolph Valentino’s main rival in the “Latin Lover” category. Yet, despite his considerable professional accomplishments, Novarro’s enduring hold on fame stems from his tragic death—his bloodied corpse was found in his house on Halloween 1968 in what has become one of Hollywood’s most infamous scandals. A lifelong bachelor, Novarro carefully cultivated his image as a man deeply devoted to his family and to Catholicism. His murder shattered that persona. News reports revealed that the dashing screen hero had not only been gay, but he was dead at the hands of two young, male hustlers. Since then, details of his murder have achieved near mythic proportions, obscuring Novarro’s professional legacy. Beyond Paradise presents a full picture of the man who made motion picture history. Including original interviews with Novarro’s surviving friends, family, co-workers, and the two men convicted of his murder, this biography provides unique insights into an early Hollywood star—a man whose heart was forever in conflict with his image and whose myth continues to fascinate today.

Here for the first time is a book devoted exclusively to the topic of women's autobiography in nineteenth-century France. Tracing the rise of autobiography in relation to women's domestic confinement, Kathleen Hart demonstrates how Flora Tristan, George Sand, and Louise Michel transformed the genre. Inspired by Romantic socialism, each of these remarkable autobiographers links the story of her personal development to socio-historic change. In the wake of the 1830 Revolution, Tristan chronicles social unrest as she relates her progressive transformation into humanity's "Woman Guide" in Peregrinations of a Pariah (1838). Writing in the aftermath of the 1848 Revolution, Sand consolidates her role as a mediator between the rich and the poor in Story of My Life (1854). A legend of the 1871 Paris Commune, Michel establishes herself as the poet and prophet of a mythical Revolution yet to come in her Memoirs (1886). Exploring the dynamic interplay between revolution and feminist acts of self-affirmation, Revolution and Women's Autobiography in Nineteenth-Century France will appeal to scholars of history, French culture, literature, and women's studies.

Autobiographical writings have been a major cultural genre from antiquity to the present time. General questions of the literary as, e.g., the relation between literature and reality, truth and fiction, the dependency of author, narrator, and figure, or issues of individual and cultural styles etc., can be studied preeminently in the autobiographical genre. Yet, the tradition of life-writing has, in the course of literary history, developed manifold types and forms. Especially in the globalized age, where the media and other technological / cultural factors contribute to a rapid transformation of lifestyles, autobiographical writing has maintained, even enhanced, its popularity and importance. By conceiving autobiography in a wide sense that includes memoirs, diaries, self-portraits and autofiction as well as media transformations of the genre, this three-volume handbook offers a comprehensive survey of theoretical approaches, systematic aspects, and historical developments in an international and interdisciplinary perspective. While autobiography is usually considered to be a European tradition, special emphasis is placed on the modes of self-representation in non-Western cultures and on inter- and transcultural perspectives of the genre. The individual contributions are closely interconnected by a system of cross-references. The handbook addresses scholars of cultural and literary studies, students as well as non-academic readers.
