Free Sample

Having been brutally introduced to sex at the tender age of fourteen, Janet Green’s strikingly honest memoir begins as she completes her first gig as a stripper at a rough pub in Hackney; she’s very nervous, and rather stoned... Beginning in the 1950s, Janet’s early sexual experiences are put aside when she begins to question her sexuality – she rejects any consideration that she might be a lesbian – she just wants to experiment. In a time when gay sexuality was hidden, Janet was unsure how to meet other girls who were not lesbians. It was her sister, Debbie, who suggested swinging parties and Janet found that that was the solution. Janet went on to live in a passionate, but volatile, relationship before relocating to a hippy commune where she developed a penchant for recreational drugs, becoming seduced by the mellow lifestyle. During her time there, Janet was introduced to Dany who encouraged her to become both a stripper and glamour model. Knowing this had a limited shelf life, Janet begun a degree course in Social Sciences and embarked on a relationship with a young woman, Naomi. Around the same time, Janet’s sister relayed the shocking revelation that their father has sexually abused her as a child, which flung Janet’s life into despair. Shocked and devastated, Janet poured her energies into study. She went on to graduate and found that her confidence blossomed. Bright, lovable and popular, Janet discovered that education was her passport to success. She might still be a rebel, but no longer without a clue...

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States
 
In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.
 
In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.
