The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray is an 1891 philosophical novel by Irish writer and playwright Oscar Wilde. First published as a serial story in the July 1890 issue of Lippincott's Monthly Magazine, the editors feared the story was indecent, and without Wilde's knowledge, deleted five hundred words before publication. Despite that censorship, The Picture of Dorian Gray offended the moral sensibilities of British book reviewers, some of whom said that Oscar Wilde merited prosecution for violating the laws guarding the public morality. In response, Wilde aggressively defended his novel and art in correspondence with the British press. Wilde revised and expanded the magazine edition of The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890) for publication as a novel; the book edition (1891) featured an aphoristic preface - an apologia about the art of the novel and the reader. The content, style, and presentation of the preface made it famous in its own literary right, as social and cultural criticism. In April 1891, the editorial house Ward, Lock and Company published the revised version of The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Around The Bend

If you were to pass me on the street, you probably wouldn't even look twice. I'm that normal. I'm just like you, only wealthier. I have it all. The kids, the family, the dog, a house on the hill. Hell-I'm so cliche, I even have a white picket fence. I guess you could say that I've dotted my I's and crossed my T's. But what I also have-what no one sees in yoga, or at Nieman Marcus, or during the dreadful Ladies Who Lunch charity events I attend (because only God knows why), and perhaps most importantly, in the school pick up line-are secrets. Deep, dark, deadly secrets. We all keep secrets, don't we? We all have thoughts in our heads, things we do, things about us that if people knew, they'd be shocked...right? Well, what if one day we just decided to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak. What if we decided to let the whole world in on our dirty little secrets? And what if along the way, as we were spilling those secrets, we realized that things aren't always what they seem and with that knowledge, it changed the whole story? In this book, I'm laying it all out there. The unraveling of my life. My coming undone. What one might've seen had they been paying attention. What I've found in life is people often believe lies before they'll believe the truth. Well, here it is, in a nutshell. I'll let you decide which is which."

I killed Bambi (BiBook)

Silvia and Deborah are two students like many others. They love music and joints, not so much school and rules. One day, they go into their classroom, at their high school in the heart of Rome, and start shooting on their classmates. The first to fall is Eleonora, punished because she was considered the most brilliant and the most beautiful of the students. Other young people will die with her, according to a very precise list that Silvia and Deborah have been preparing for a long time. A real slaughter like those that occur in American colleges or in northern Europe. Except that, for the first time, the shooters are two girls.

Treacherous Deceptions

Secrets, Lies, Deception, Betrayal, Revenge

Maria was a young girl with a wild side and rebellious nature whose life was on a downward, out of control spiral which only accelerated after the sudden death of her mother. After marrying Tony, she struggles to keep her untamed spirit on a leash and her secrets under wraps, secrets that could destroy the life she has created for herself. What she doesn't know is that Tony has some secrets of his own, as do others in her immediate circle. Hidden under a veneer of love and friendship, levels of duplicity and pretense threaten to forever break the intricate bonds that hold the intertwined relationships together.

Also unknown to her, a dangerous presence is lurking just beyond her threshold, which represents a far greater threat than the secrets everyone is hiding; it is a threat that has its origins in her past and was born out of betrayal.

As the skeletons begin to tumble out of the closet and the menace draws closer, there's only one question that remains. Will all the treacherous deceptions that flow like undercurrents beneath their fabricated lives, cost them more than their friendships and marriages?
