📒Philip Sidney ✍ Alan Stewart
✏Philip Sidney Book Summary : Courtier, poet, soldier, diplomat - Philip Sidney was one of the most promising young men of his age. Son of Elizabeth I's deputy in Ireland, nephew and heir to her favourite, Leicester, he was tipped for high office - and even to inherit the throne. But Sidney soon found himself caught up in the intricate politics of Elizabeth's court and forced to become as Machiavellian as everyone around him if he was to achieve his ambitions. Against a backdrop of Elizabethan intrigue and the battle between Protestant and Catholic for predominance in Europe, Alan Stewart tells the riveting story of Philip Sidney's struggle to suceed. Seeing that his continental allies had a greater sense of his importance that his English contamporaries, Philip turned his attention to Europe. He was made a French baron at seventeen, corresponded with leading foreign scholars, considered marriage proposals from two princesses and, at the time of his tragically early death, was being openly spoken of as the next ruler of the Netherlands.

✏A Double Life Book Summary : The life of Guy de Roumegouse is one of imposture, of playing roles, and of being constantly untrue to himself. In retirement in the south of France, he begins to write his memoirs, and in doing so confronts the betrayals and dislocations that have shaped and warped his life. At the heart of Guy's duplicity is the repression of his homosexuality during a time when the Vichy government controlled all in war-torn France. At an age when this young man was supposed to experience a sexual awakening, he instead went into hiding both physically and emotionally. This fictional memoir is elegantly crafted and told in a prose as cold and paradoxical as its narrator.

Harper's carefully researched story reminds us that motherhood's central joys are also its most essential transformations.
