When I Knew is a collection of smart, hilarious, and often poignant stories about that revelation for all gay men and women: when they first knew. In this gorgeously illustrated, cleverly designed, and colorful book, acclaimed fashion and celeb-rity photographer Robert Trachtenberg brings humor and style to the EUREKA! moments of more than eighty contributors, including B. D. Wong, Arthur Laurents, Simon Doonan, Stephen Fry, Marc Shaiman, Michael Musto, and more. Also mixed in are tales about when parents knew and when everyone else knew, as well as laugh-out-loud coming-out stories. Readers will fall in love with these anecdotes, from the seven-year-old who looked under the television set to sneak a peek under Tarzan's loincloth, to the inquisitive grandmother who asked her grandson, "You don't like a girl to get married? You prefer a boy?", to the courageous field trip participant who passed up the universal favorite burger-and-fry combo in favor of the fruit plate with cottage cheese. Filled with original art by New Yorker illustrator Tom Bachtell, historical images, and personal photographs from the contributors, When I Knew is a vibrant and witty celebration of that sometimes glorious, sometimes painful, but always captivating moment when everything suddenly makes sense.

"Darkly hilarious...an unexpected bundle of joy." -O, The Oprah Magazine Alice Cohen was happy for the first time in years. After a difficult divorce, she had a new love in her life, she was rais­ing a beloved adopted daughter, and her career was blossoming. Then she started experiencing mysterious symptoms. After months of tests, x-rays, and inconclusive diagnoses, Alice underwent a CAT scan that revealed the truth: she was six months pregnant. At age forty-four, with no prenatal care and no insurance coverage for a high-risk pregnancy, Alice was besieged by opinions from doctors and friends about what was ethical, what was loving, what was right. With the intimacy of a diary and the suspense of a thriller, What I Thought I Knew is a ruefully funny, wickedly candid tale; a story of hope and renewal that turns all of the "knowns" upside down.

An earthy, literate read—laced with a strong dose of humor—awaits the reader in I Knew I Was Naked. Authored by Sean Lacey, this fiction-adventure is the window to a unique American boyhood that will amuse and inspire. Set during the Great Depression and World War II, the language of the novel recaptures the time. This is the story of Sean Lacey, an American boy of Irish descent. Sean is shy, shy about a body ahead of his age. In the 1930s, grown-ups and bullies have no truck with boy-modesty. The tale begins when Sean is five and follows his trials a year at a time. The plot takes a turn at age thirteen when Bryan O'Neill—Sean's near-opposite and self-appointed older brother—adds a new dimension. But trouble has a way of worming itself in. Bryan's loyalty never wavers, but Sean is tested to the breaking point and beyond. In the end, like all good books, I Knew I Was Naked is a love story—not your everyday love story—that the surprising conclusion unfolds.

A vivid and intimate portrait of the New Deal president by the first woman ever appointed to the U.S. Cabinet. When Frances Perkins first met Franklin D. Roosevelt at a dance in 1910, she was a young social worker and he was an attractive young man making a modest debut in state politics. Over the next thirty-five years, she watched his career unfold, becoming both a close family friend and a trusted political associate whose tenure as secretary of labor spanned his entire administration. FDR and his presidential policies continue to be widely discussed in the classroom and in the media, and The Roosevelt I Knew offers a unique window onto the man whose courage and pioneering reforms still resonate in the lives of Americans today.

This is a book about the basic aspects of life that are not always taught in school or at home. Many of things in this book have been learned through trial and error by many. I have taken this basic life information and placed it in one place for your easy reference. The world is a much busier place than it was twenty years ago, and the focus on family and home is lacking - especially on how to have and keep one. It is my hope that this book will help those that need it and will be passed onto others that could benefit from it. This is not a "be all, end all" book and it is not intended to replace knowledge received from professionals trained in certain areas. I just want to be able to take some of the burden off of the next generation and allow them to focus on the important things in life. I am not an expert. I am a just a mother who wants to help out the young adults of today and the next generation.
