It's 1913. Malise Monroe, a fiery fifteen-year-old, earns herself an education teaching younger children at a Dundee schoolhouse. Her father Gabriel is passionately devoted to improving conditions for workers in the jute industry and battles against the Fraser family, the local factory's idle, rich owners. Despite sharing her father's beliefs, Malise cannot help finding herself attracted to Neil Fraser, the family's good-looking younger son. Her innocent flirting leads to a terrible incident and Malise finds herself pregnant. Furious beyond words when he discovers what Fraser has done to his daughter, Gabriel rushes to avenge Malise and is killed in the mêlée that ensues. Utterly abandoned, Malise has no choice but to accept a proposal of marriage from schoolteacher Gordon Scott. He is much older than Malise, and crippled, but he is her only chance to save her reputation. Then the war comes and everything changes forever. As the men of Dundee enlist to fight in France, the city's women must take their place in the jute factory. Malise takes up her father's cause, championing workers' rights and coming back into conflict with the Frasers again. Yet Malise has an even bigger fight on her hands. Neil Fraser returns from the fighting in France and now covets the handsome son that Malise adores¿

With an in-depth look at the two most empowering years in the life of Marilyn Monroe, The Girl details how The Seven Year Itch created an icon and sent the star on an adventure of self-discovery and transformation from a controlled wife and contract player into a businesswoman and unlikely feminist whose power is still felt today. When Marilyn Monroe stepped over a subway grating as The Girl in The Seven Year Itch and let a gust of wind catch the skirt of her pleated white dress, an icon was born. Before that, the actress was mainly known for a nude calendar and one-dimensional, albeit memorable, characters on the screen. Though she again played a "dumb blonde" in this film and was making headlines by revealing her enviable anatomy, the star was now every bit in control of her image, and ready for a personal revolution. Emboldened by her winning fight to land the role of The Girl, the making of The Seven Year Itch and the eighteen months that followed was the period of greatest confidence, liberation, and career success that Monroe lived in her tumultuous life. It was a time in which, among other things, she: Ended her marriage to Joe DiMaggio and later began a relationship with Arthur Miller; Legally changed her name to Marilyn Monroe, divorcing herself from the troubled past of Norma Jeane; Started her own production company; Studied in private lessons with Lee and Paula Strasberg of the Actors Studio and became a part of the acting revolution of the day The ripple effects her personal rebellion had on Hollywood, and in trailblazing the way for women that followed, will both surprise and inspire readers to see the Marilyn Monroe in an entirely new light.

Certainly no singer has been more mythologized and more misunderstood than Billie Holiday, who helped to create much of the mystique herself with her autobiography, Lady Sings the Blues. "Now, finally, we have a definitive biography," said Booklist of Donald Clarke's Billie Holiday, "by a deeply compassionate, respectful, and open-minded biographer [whose] portrait embraces every facet of Holiday's paradoxical nature, from her fierceness to her vulnerability, her childlikeness to her innate elegance and amazing strength." Clarke was given unrivaled access to a treasure trove of interviews from the 1970s—interviews with those who knew Lady Day from her childhood in the streets and good-time houses of Baltimore through the early days of success in New York and into the years of fame, right up to her tragic decline and death at the age of forty-four. Clarke uses these interviews to separate fact from fiction and, in the words of the Seattle Times, "finally sets us straight. . .evoking her world in all its anguish, triumph, force and irony." Newsday called this "a thoroughly riveting account of Holiday and her milieu." The New York Times raved that it "may be the most thoroughly valuable of the many books on Holiday," and Helen Oakley Dance in JazzTimes said, "We should probably have to wait a long time for another life of Billie Holiday to supersede Donald Clarke's achievement."
