At the turn of the nineteenth century, a retired sixty-two-year-old charm school instructor named Annie Edson Taylor, seeking fame and fortune, decided to do something that no one in the world had ever done before—she would go over Niagara Falls in a wooden barrel. Come meet the Queen of the Falls and witness with your own eyes her daring ride!

Book excerpt: Whether pulled from the folds of memory, channeled through the icons of Greek mythology and Roman Catholicism, or filtered through the lens of pop culture, Sonja Livingston's Queen of the Fall considers the lives of women. Exploring the legacies of those she has crossed paths with in life and in the larger culture, Livingston weaves together strands of memory with richly imagined vignettes to explore becoming a woman in late 1980s and early 1990s America. Along the way, the award-winning memoirist brings us face-to-face with herself as an inner-city girl--trying to imagine a horizon beyond poverty, fearful of her fertility and the limiting arc of teenage pregnancy. Livingston looks at the lives of those she's known: friends who've gotten themselves into "trouble" and disappeared never to be heard from again, girls who tell their school counselor small lies out of necessity and pain, and a mother whose fruitfulness seems, at times, biblical. Livingston interacts with figures such as Susan B. Anthony, the Virgin Mary, and Ally McBeal to mine the terrain of her own femininity, fertility, and longing. Queen of the Fall is a dazzling meditation on loss, possibility, and, ultimately, what it means to be human. Watch a book trailer

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A story of another age, of an early civilization seen only dimly through the veil of time. It’s a time when life is more primitive and closer to our animal roots. Life is hard, and wealth, glory and sexual pleasures are taken by conquest. The Thralkild court is rich and opulent, with scantily clad slaves and breathtakingly beautiful courtesans, all of whom who eagerly engage in the most outrageous acts at the command of their lecherous sovereign. From these mists, emerge two strong personages: The great King Rahn the Conquerer, and his consort, Lohr his proud and beautiful Queen. Both are ambitious, ruthless, cunning, and both revel in sexual pleasure, at a court known far and wide for the depths of its depravity. Though the King's lustful appetite is legendary, it remains for his newly-chosen Consort, the insatiable "Ice Queen," to plunge that depraved court into new depths. She’s a woman consumed by bizarre erotic obsessions driving her in the relentless pursuit of power and sensual pleasure – a pursuit that will lead to her ultimate downfall.
