Katherine O´Connor is in dire straits and the only thing she can think of to do is apply for a job as a caddy. The only problem is...women aren´t yet allowed to play golf in America. She cuts her hair, dons boy clothing and gets the job. She didn´t plan on falling for her handsome boss. Once her identity is revealed, complications of her deception seem overwhelming. Bradford Woodward knows something is suspicious about the frail young man in his employ, but since his brother hired the caddy, he´ll honor the boy´s employment and try to find something the boy knows how to do. When ´´Kevin´´ asks to play in a promotional golf tournament, Brad doesn´t see the harm in it. What transpires next turns his world upside down and makes him question everything he thought to be real. Can these two repair a relationship formed under false pretenses? 1. Language: English.

In Inventing Baseball Heroes, Amber Roessner examines ´´herocrafting´´ in sports journalism through an incisive analysis of the work surrounding two of baseball´s most enduring personalities - Detroit Tigers outfielder Ty Cobb and New York Giants pitcher Christy Mathewson. While other scholars have demonstrated that the mythmakers of the Golden Age of Sports Writing (1920-1930) manufactured heroes out of baseball players for the mainstream media, Roessner probes further, with a penetrating look at how sportswriters compromised emerging professional standards of journalism as they crafted heroic tales that sought to teach American boys how to be successful players in the game of life. Cobb and Mathewson, respectively stereotyped as the game´s sinner and saint, helped shape their public images in the mainstream press through their relationship with four of the most prominent sports journalists of the time: Grantland Rice, FC Lane, Ring Lardner, and John N. Wheeler. Roessner traces the interactions between the athletes and the reporters, delving into newsgathering strategies as well as rapport-building techniques, and ultimately revealing an inherent tension in objective sports reporting in the era. Inventing Baseball Heroes will be of interest to scholars of American history, sports history, cultural studies, and communication. Its interdisciplinary approach provides a broad understanding of the role sports journalists played in the production of American heroes. The book is published by Louisiana State University Press. 1.

I´m a shy, quiet, somewhat introverted young college librarian who also happens to be a trusted secretary at my Lutheran church. I would be about the last person you´d ever expect to find in a biker bar - not to mention being gangbanged by a group of leather-wearing, tattoo-sporting, pierced up, brawny biker boys from the city. So how does a young, bashful, sexually-reserved church girl like myself end up sprawled out on one of the pool tables of a smoky, back alley biker bar? To this day, I´m still trying to wrap my mind completely around it, but it was one wild, tempestuous, mind-blowing experience that I know I will remember for the rest of my life...
