On the eve of a huge, breakout success, a poor but brilliant young game developer is pulled out of her world, and time itself, by a cowboy desperately searching for the daughter he lost two hundred years ago. Cady McCall is ready to be rich and famous. She has sacrificed everything, putting her work ahead of family and friends. Now with breakout success and huge, insane wealth so close she can taste it, her life is blown apart by Deputy Marshal John 'Titanic' Smith, the man who rescues her from two muggers, only to carry her off into history. Lost on the seas of time, Smith is desperate to get home to his family in 1876, and now Cady is lost along with him, facing danger and finding love in Victorian London, Ancient Rome and in the near-future America of President for Life Donald Trump.

Age, Gender and Sexuality through the Life Course argues that the gendered structure of temporality (defined in the dual sense of everyday time as well as age and stage of life) is a key factor underpinning the stalling of the gender revolution. Taking as its central focus the idealised young woman who serves as the mascot of contemporary success, this book demonstrates how the celebration of the Girl is (i) representative of social mobility, educational and professional achievement; (ii) possesses diligence, docility and emotional intelligence, and (iii) displays a reassuring sexuality and youthfulness ¿ but is constructed from the outset to have a fleetingly short life span. Pickard undertakes a theoretical and empirical exploration of the contemporary female experience of education, work, motherhood, sexuality, the challenge of having-it-all. Furthermore, through additional analysis of the transitional ¿reproductive regime¿ from youth into mid-life and beyond, this insightful monograph aims to demonstrate how age and time set very clear limits to what is possible and desirable for the female self; yet how the latter factors also, if used reflexively, can provide the key means of resisting and challenging patriarchy. This book is aimed at a broad interdisciplinary audience located in gender studies, age studies, culture studies, sociology and psychology; accessible for advanced undergraduates and beyond.

That way now, this way soon. Isn¿t life just full of conflicting complications? So Mustapha Saeed, in A Girl at a Time with a Little Rhyme, would seem to agree. This collection of poems, some just so brief as to remind one of haikus, contrasts love and betrayal, mirror images, the fangs of coming short while making comparisons, and other such turmoil in life.

"So, girl, let me ask you this," Piper smiled. "What is it that you see in my brother?""Ummm..." I replied, taken by surprise."It's okay, girl, I've known for a long time that you liked him, even when you didn't." Piper smiled once more. "I am more than okay with it.""Okay." I smiled back. "I love his smile, and his loving, sincere, kind, and giving heart. He also happens to be sexy and extremely gorgeous.""TMI, TMI!" Piper laughed. "Now that we have gotten that out of the way, how about we head to the food court and grab some lunch?""Good idea." I laughed back, as Piper and I linked arms.
