This is a story about a seventeen-year-old teenager named Sharon Knowles, a senior in high school, who has an eighteen-year-old boyfriend named Andrew Stipes, also a senior in high school. During an uncommon moment of passion between the two, Sharon becomes pregnant, and this pregnancy becomes the defining moment in her young life. Three weeks later Andrew is killed in a snowboarding accident along the Rocky Mountain Continental Divide and Sharon is forced to make important decisions without him. But life goes on, as it must, and she eventually defeats the feelings of guilt, loneliness, and low self-esteem that surround a young person in her predicament. She marries several years later, but the untimely death of her husband during the Colorado Big Thompson flood puts her back in the throes of loneliness again. Then life rebuilding begins slowly, and with the passage of time and the support of friends around her, she learns to live again. This is not a children's story.

Although his literary reputation rests primarily on his novels, Malcolm Lowry (1909-57) considered himself to be a poet, and he composed an extensive poetic canon. No reliable edition of Lowry's poetry currently exists. Increasing critical interest in all aspects of Lowry's life and work prompted the preparation of this complete edition of his poetry, in which the poems are located, identified, dated, arranged, collated, annotated, and explicated by biographical, critical, and textual introductions.

Here it is: the first-time look at the remarkable American multinational mass media empire and its century of entertainment—the story of Twentieth Century Fox (1915–2015). Or, to borrow the title of a classic 1959 Fox film, The Best of Everything. This is the complete revelatory story—bookended by empire builders William Fox and Rupert Murdoch—aimed as both a grand, entertaining, nostalgic and picture-filled interactive read and the ultimate guide to all things Twentieth Century Fox. The controversies and scandals are here, as are the extraordinary achievements. Among other firsts, the book offers fun tours of its historic production and ranch facilities including never-before-told stories about its stars and creative personalities (Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, James Dean, and Shirley Temple got started there). Finally, it is the first such work approved by the company and utilizing its own unique resources. The authors primarily tell a celebratory tale, but most importantly, an accurate one.
