Miranda and Her Daughters By Cate Garrison
Paperback: $15.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
MIRANDA AND HER DAUGHTERS turns the Cinderella story on its head. Stepmothers traditionally get a terrible rap. Fathers and mothers--even mothers-in-law--may be good or bad, but stepmothers are... More > always "wicked." But now that blended families are almost the norm, we need to challenge the stereotype. MIRANDA addresses the issue head-on in a way that is quirky, sexy, playful and, at times,serious. It takes the storyline from the Brothers Grimm, but brings it up to date, gives it a distinctly adult flavor, and sets it between London, England, and Portland, Oregon. The tale will appeal to women--and men--who take on the difficult job of raising other people’s children, as well as their own. More, it provides the missing ‘back story’: how Cinderella’s father met his second wife, or why the new wife’s two daughters had a problem with shoes.

Season with the clash of cultures between this woman’s English origins and the traditions of her American spouse. Stir the ingredients together in the aromatic pot that is bubbling, up-and-coming Portland, Oregon, and you begin to get the flavor of OF MUTTS AND MEN.< Less

Paperback: $15.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
CHOICE CUTS OF LAMB is an anthology of essays on every subject under the sun, from mothers to fathers, from god to Santa Claus, from life in the city to life in the suburbs, or the country, from... More > traveling far-and-wide, to staying at home. It contains two fascinating interviews, one with Brian Basset, creator of the widely syndicated cartoon strip, Adam@Home, and another with the late lamented, much mourned French Mime, Marcel Marceau. Among the many illustrations (mostly old family photographs) is a caricature of author Cate Garrison when she was theater critic for Willamette Week, an alternative newspaper from Portland, Oregon, sketched by that astonishing artist Bill Papas, whose untimely death by drowning, a decade or so ago, left us reeling. All but one of these pieces were first published in the monthly publication, Black Lamb, "a magazine for readers."< Less
