Adult onset by Ann-Marie MacDonald( Book )

"Mary Rose MacKinnon is a successful author of YA fiction doing a tour of duty as stay-at-home mom while her partner, Hilary, takes a turn focusing on her career. She tries valiantly to balance the (mostly) solo parenting of two young children with the relentless needs of her aging parents. But amid the hilarities of full-on domesticity arises a sense of dread. Do others notice the dents in the expensive refrigerator? How long will it take Mary Rose to realize that the car alarm that has been going off all morning is hers, and how on earth did her sharpest pair of scissors wind up in her toddler's hands? As frustrations mount, she experiences a flare-up of forgotten symptoms of a childhood illness that compel her to rethink her own upbringing and family history. Over the course of one outwardly ordinary week, Mary Rose's world threatens to unravel, and the specter of violence raises its head with dangerous implications for her and her children. With humor and unerring emotional accuracy, Adult Onset explores the pleasures and pressures of family bonds, powerful and yet so easily twisted and broken. Ann-Marie MacDonald has crafted a searing, terrifying, yet ultimately uplifting story. "--
Goodnight Desdemona (good morning Juliet) by Ann-Marie MacDonald( Book )

42 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this exuberant comedy - and original revision of Shakespeare's Othello and Romeo and Juliet - Constance Ledbelly, a drab and dusty academic, deciphers a cryptic manuscript she believes to be the original source for the tragedies, and is transported into the plays themselves. She visits Juliet and Desdemona, has a hand in saving them from the deaths the Bard had planned for them, and finds out what these women are all about. In true Shakespearean spirit, Constance plunders the plays and creates something new, all the while engaging in a personal voyage of self-discovery. With an abundance of twists, fights, dances, seductions and wild surprises, the play is an absolute joy in theatricality. - Back Cover

Paris Hilton Inc. the selling of celebrity( Visual )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are drowning in celebrity culture and certainly no tabloid topic has been as big as Paris Hilton ... Famous for doing nothing, she is the ultimate manifestation of our obsession with celebrity culture and the massive profits that it wields ... Being the first with a celebrity scoop has been the stock and trade of the tabloid magazine business, but only in recent years has that competition spilled over into the traditional news business. Pushed by the surging popularity of entertainment and gossip sites on the Internet, the media landscape is being reshaped by the world of "dish." The ethicists may howl, the columnists complain, but viewers rule and the celebrity machine is more than ready to oblige. As long as we are willing to watch and read, who can resist feeding our habit?"--Container
Sext up kids( Visual )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The powder keg that is porn culture has exploded in the lives of North American children. From thongs and padded bras for 9-year-old girls to "sexting," 24-7 internet porn, and unfiltered social media, kids today are bombarded with commercial sexual appeals like never before. In this astonishing new documentary, award-winning documentary filmmaker Maureen Palmer explores what this radical transformation of the culture means for young people, parents, and our very notions of childhood. Palmer interviews researchers who have been tracking how the accelerating pressure to be sexy -- and sexual -- is changing kids' behavior and undermining their health. She sits down with parents and educators struggling to help kids navigate puberty in a hypermediated cultural environment that no longer seems to recognize or respect the developmental needs of children. And she talks to teens and pre-teens who share eerily casual insights into the routine role sex plays in their lives. The result is a stunning exploration of the sexualization of childhood and a startling wake-up call for parents who still think their own children are immune to the excesses and influences of today's sexed-up youth culture"--Container
