Aubrey's Brief Lives
'I here lay down to you the truth, and nothing but the truth: the naked and plain truth, which is here exposed so bare that the very pudenda are not covered, and affords many passages that would raise a blush in a young virgin's cheek.' The Langley Press selection from Aubrey's Brief Lives includes the lives of Aubrey's most famous subjects, including Shakespeare, Chaucer, Milton and Sir Walter Raleigh. The selection includes a number of blush-making passages that were missed out of Andrew Clark's 1889 edition, including the speedy wooing of one of Thomas More's daughters, and the notorious tale of Walter Ralegh's al fresco love-making.
In this engaging, provocative, and decadent novel, two lonely cousins make their own way in the world when everyone else abandons them.
Cousins Simone and Stefan are forced to prostitute themselves to make ends meet. Stefan is disowned by his father, rejected by his peers and family, and bullied because of his sexuality until he finally gains the courage to stand up for himself. Sadly, his boyfriend is simply using him for money and romancing women on the side. Simone has a hard time making friends, and the only friends she has are cross-dressers. All they have is each other. Their friendship is the one thing that makes them feel invincible against the hatred toward them. But when everyone is dishonest about their indiscretions, friendships fall apart. Abnormal Lives takes readers from the despair of a life of crime to the hope and redemption of spirituality and love.
