In diesem Buch lassen zwölf Frauen ein ebenso schwieriges wie verrücktes Jahrhundert Revue passieren. Direkt und ungekünstelt erzählen sie von den Rollbahnen und Sackgassen des Lebens, von gefundenen und verlorenen Lieben, von Träumen und Tränen, schwerer Arbeit und blauen Nächten. Sie sprechen von den großen und kleinen Geheimnissen der Frauen, ihren Sehnsüchten und Kämpfen, ihren Erfolgen und Niederlagen auf der Bühne der "Comédie humaine". Susanna Schwager hat die Frauen in ihren guten Stuben, in einfachen Kammern, in Salons, Ateliers und abgelegenen Land-Heimetlis besucht und aus ihren Schilderungen ein schillerndes Kaleidoskop weiblicher Lebensentwürfe gewoben. Entstanden ist kein Lob des Alters, sondern ein Hohelied auf das Leben. Es erzählen die Sängerin Lys Assia, die Schauspielerinnen Anne-Marie Blanc und Stephanie Glaser, die Künstlerin Hanny Fries, die Zigeunerin Urselina Gemperle, die Volksmusikerin Trudi Kilian, die Politikerin Emilie Lieberherr, die Bergbäuerin Maria Loretz, die Kindererzieherin Monica Suter, die Kleinunternehmerin Fränzi Utinger, die Entwicklungshelferin Lilly Vogel und die Hebamme Marie Zürcher.

Anyone who examines the history of Western art must be struck by the prevalence of images of the female body. More than any other subject, the female nude connotes `art'. The framed image of a female body, hung on the walls of an art gallery, is an icon of Western culture, a symbol of civilization and accomplishment. But how and why did the female nude acquire this status? The Female Nude brings together, in an entirely new way, analysis of the historical tradition of the female nude and discussion of recent feminist art, and by exploring the ways in which acceptable and unacceptable images of the female body are produced and maintained, renews recent debates on high culture and pornography. The Female Nude represents the first feminist survey of the most significant subject in Western art. It reveals how the female nude is now both at the centre and at the margins of high culture. At the centre, and within art historical discourse, the female nude is seen as the visual culmination of enlightenment aesthetics; at the edge, it risks losing its repectability and spilling over into the obscene.

First published in 1989, A Particular Friendship follows Dirk Bogarde's first four memoirs This epistolary collection finds Bogarde at his most honest and touching, engaging in conversation with a woman he has never met, and whose only interest in him comes from the simple fact that he now happens to live in a house that she once owned. These letters provide an insight into the wit and intelligence of a great man without the stifling constraints of other literary forms. it presents us with a platform and a relationship that allowed Bogarde to freely reminisce, discuss politics, and gossip about those around him. The correspondences were all written before Bogarde saw himself as an author and stand as a testament to his literary talent, domestic sensibilities, and his unquestionable compassion in sharing so much with a complete stranger.
