What is 'the literary fantastic' and how does it manifest itself in the texts of French and francophone women writers publishing at the close of the twentieth and start of the twenty-first century? What do we mean today when we talk of 'the real' and 'realism'? These are just some of the questions addressed by the papers in this volume which derive from a conference entitled 'The Fantastic in Contemporary Women's Writing in French' held in London in September 2007. This book sets out to refocus through a non-realist lens on the works of high-profile authors (Darrieussecq, Nothomb, Germain, Cixous and NDiaye) and some of their less highly publicised contemporaries. It analyses and mobilises a wide range of both gendered and non-gendered practices and theories of 'the contemporary fantastic' whilst critically interrogating both of the latter terms and their inter-relation.

Who really defines success? How do we define it for ourselves? Chances are, it's not what you've been taught. While making money is a key goal for most, many women have come to realize that health, happiness, growth, and mentoring others are equally important in the overall equation of success; and that success rarely means the same thing for women as it does for men. With that in mind, 13 female entrepreneurs have come together to share their intimate success stories to inspire more women to take the steps toward financial independence and personal success. This book offers a unique point of view through the adventures, struggles, and joy these women experienced on their roads to success. Learn the truth about managing your own happiness, learning from mentors, shedding the myths of outward success, and caring for your business, your partners, and employees, from real women who've been in the trenches. These authors are passionate about supporting other women in business and in life. In this book they share that passion with you. Get inspired to redefine success for yourself, as these women share vulnerability, fears, mistakes, growth, and ultimately, success. How the Book Came to Be Ayelet (Ally) Nathaniel, owner of Ally Nathaniel eBook Publishing Services, has been helping people get their dream book into print for years. Earlier this year, she approached Sarah Walton, owner of Love by Sarah Walton and Better Way to Start the Day, about combining the stories of several women to deliver a completely new kind of book: shared stories of real success by women who've been in the trenches. Tired of the many "get rich quick" schemes and thinly veiled direct marketing claims of "having it all," Ally and Sarah wanted to offer real stories of success and the truth about what success means to each woman individually. Together, they reached out to several women in their networks, and the final 13 came together. Each woman has written a chapter that tells her individual story of personal triumph, moments of grief, support, growth, and ultimately, success. This book aims to offer real-world examples of success, debunking the myth that success is only measurable by external markers. For each woman, success is defined differently, and usually through trial and error. In today's hectic world, filled with a false sense of urgency, panic, and the need to appear perfect, Redefining Success is a welcome breath of fresh air, filled with truth, heart, and inspiration. The book was edited by Sarah Walton and Ayelet Nathaniel.

New York Times Bestseller • Winner of the 2015 WOMEN'S WAY Book Prize • Goodreads Best of 2014 Semi-Finalist • Books for a Better Life Award Finalist • Lambda Literary Award Finalist • Time Magazine “30 Most Influential People on the Internet” • American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book In her profound and courageous New York Times bestseller, Janet Mock establishes herself as a resounding and inspirational voice for the transgender community—and anyone fighting to define themselves on their own terms. With unflinching honesty and moving prose, Janet Mock relays her experiences of growing up young, multiracial, poor, and trans in America, offering readers accessible language while imparting vital insight about the unique challenges and vulnerabilities of a marginalized and misunderstood population. Though undoubtedly an account of one woman’s quest for self at all costs, Redefining Realness is a powerful vision of possibility and self-realization, pushing us all toward greater acceptance of one another—and of ourselves—showing as never before how to be unapologetic and real.
