The Glass Slipper is about the persistence of a familiar Anglo-American love story into the digital age. Susan Ostrov Weisser compares diverse narratives, historical and contemporary from high literature and “low” genres, discussing novels by Jane Austen and Charlotte Brontë, Victorian women's magazines, and D. H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterley's Lover; romantic movies; popular Harlequin romance novels; masochistic love in films; pornography and its relationship to romance; and reality TV and Internet ads as romantic stories.

Den richtigen Liebespartner zu finden – davon träumen viele Menschen. Aber wie geht das? Ist es nicht einfach Schicksal? Mandy Len Catron wagt einen Selbstversuch: Sie trifft sich mit einem Bekannten und geht mit ihm einen Fragebogen durch, den Psychologen entwickelt haben, um Menschen dazu zu bringen, sich ineinander zu verlieben. Und es funktioniert tatsächlich! Beide verlieben sich und leben bis heute in einer glücklichen Partnerschaft. Über ihre Erfahrung schrieb sie erst einen Zeitungsartikel und jetzt dieses Buch – das mehr ist, als ein Memoire: Die Autorin zeigt, welche Fallstricke beim Verlieben auf jeden von uns warten und welche Fehler vermieden werden können. Anhand ihrer eigenen (Familien-) Geschichte spannt sie den Bogen von Psychologie, Biologie, Geschichte bis hin zur Literatur und zum Film. Dabei entsteht ein kurzweiliges und intelligentes Buch, das mit einigen Mythen endgültig aufräumt – und so den Weg freimacht, sich endlich in den oder die Richtige zu verlieben! Mandy Len Catrons eigene Liebesgeschichte machte Schlagzeilen und schlug hohe Wellen als ihr Artikel in der New York Times erschien. Darin berichtet sie über die Entdeckung einer zwanzig Jahre alten psychologischen Untersuchung, die behauptet, ein einfacher Fragebogen könne zwei wildfremde Menschen dazu bringen, sich ineinander zu verlieben. Sie beschreibt, wie sie diese 36 Fragen eines Sommerabends mit einem Bekannten durchspielt und dieser später ihr Lebenspartner wird. Die Reaktionen übertrafen alle Erwartungen: Wenige Stunden nachdem die Redaktion den Artikel ins Netz gestellt hatte, verbreitete er sich viral. Innerhalb weniger Wochen wurde er viele Millionen Mal angeklickt. Offenkundig verhieß er etwas, das viele Menschen interessierte: eine Formel, mit der sich zwei x-beliebige Menschen ineinander verlieben können. Dass sich der Artikel so rasch verbreitete, bestätigte etwas, das Catron seit Jahren vermutet hatte: In Sachen Liebe bevorzugen wir die Kurzfassung der Geschichte. Also beschloss Mandy Len Catron, so viel über die Liebe in Erfahrung zu bringen, wie sie nur konnte. Sie las Artikel über die Neurochemie der Liebe, die Psychologie von Beziehungen und die Wirtschaftsgeschichte der Ehe und soziologische Theorien über das Geschichtenerzählen. Sie sah Filme, hörte Popsongs und las Sonette. Sie befragte ihre Großeltern und Eltern, sprach mit Freunden und lieh sich Ehe- und Beziehungsratgeber aus der Bücherei aus. Ihre Einsichten und Überlegungen hat sie nun in diesem liebevollen Memoire zusammengetragen. Eine Pflichtlektüre für alle, die sich entweder in einer Beziehung befinden oder sich dafür interessieren, was die Herausforderungen heutiger Paarbeziehungen sind. Und für diejenigen, die noch auf der Suche nach der wahren Liebe sind, enthält dieses Buch den Fragebogen, mit dem Sie sich verlieben können, in wen SIE wollen.

Cillian is trapped in his small village by his step-uncle, who has usurped Cillian’s inheritance and squandered it on his own two sons. Cillian earns his own living, and does all the family's chores, whlie his step-cousins do nothing. Then Queen Beyta arrives, looking to have Cillian repair Princess Itha's broken glass slipper. A party celebrating the king’s arrival is in two days, and Cillian gets to work. But, the afternoon before the party, Cillian's family overpowers him and locks him in the dungeon so that they might receive the king--and any blessings he might bestow. The queen comes to his rescue, and introduces him at court to the King Malo, Princess Itha, and Prince Pari. The princess wants to show Cillian her "gratitude," but the prince intervenes and claims Cillian for himself. The prince's gratitude, however, isn't anything Cillian is interested in. King Malo intervenes and Cillian fears more punishment, so it comes as a pleasant surprise when he's led to the king's bed. Soon, though, Malo must return to the castle, and Cillian to his village. He once again finds himself at the mercy of his step-uncle and cousins again. Will he ever see Malo again? Was their interlude just a game to the king or something more?

“A beautifully written and well-researched cultural criticism as well as an honest memoir” (Los Angeles Review of Books) from the author of the popular New York Times essay, “To Fall in Love with Anyone, Do This,” explores the romantic myths we create and explains how they limit our ability to achieve and sustain intimacy. What really makes love last? Does love ever work the way we say it does in movies and books and Facebook posts? Or does obsessing over those love stories hurt our real-life relationships? When her parents divorced after a twenty-eight year marriage and her own ten-year relationship ended, those were the questions that Mandy Len Catron wanted to answer. In a series of candid, vulnerable, and wise essays that takes a closer look at what it means to love someone, be loved, and how we present our love to the world, “Catron melds science and emotion beautifully into a thoughtful and thought-provoking meditation” (Bookpage). She delves back to 1944, when her grandparents met in a coal mining town in Appalachia, to her own dating life as a professor in Vancouver. She uses biologists’ research into dopamine triggers to ask whether the need to love is an innate human drive. She uses literary theory to show why we prefer certain kinds of love stories. She urges us to question the unwritten scripts we follow in relationships and looks into where those scripts come from. And she tells the story of how she decided to test an experiment that she’d read about—where the goal was to create intimacy between strangers using a list of thirty-six questions—and ended up in the surreal situation of having millions of people following her brand-new relationship. “Perfect fodder for the romantic and the cynic in all of us” (Booklist), How to Fall in Love with Anyone flips the script on love. “Clear-eyed and full of heart, it is mandatory reading for anyone coping with—or curious about—the challenges of contemporary courtship” (The Toronto Star).

Since the 1970s, romance novels have surpassed all other genres in terms of popularity in the United States, accounting for half of all mass market paperbacks sold and driving the digital publishing revolution. Romance Fiction and American Culture brings together scholars from the humanities, social sciences, and publishing to explore American romance fiction from the late eighteenth to the early twenty-first century. Essays on interracial, inspirational, and LGBTQ romance attend to the diversity of the genre, while new areas of inquiry are suggested in contextual and interdisciplinary examinations of romance authorship, readership, and publishing history, of pleasure and respectability in African American romance fiction, and of the dynamic tension between the genre and second wave feminism. As it situates romance fiction among other instances of American love culture, from Civil War diaries to Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks, Romance Fiction and American Culture confirms the complexity and enduring importance of this most contested of genres.

This is a true story. I am a baby boomer raised to believe that love always won, sex and love were interchangeable, and sharing both lead to the much desired happily ever after. In my childhood, every prince claimed a princess, every femme fatale got her man, and every sexual encounter promised love. I discovered how wrong I was before I left home and I went wild. Disillusioned, the next twenty-five years overflowed with misadventures, failed marriages, and sexual exploits. The lessons I learned were life altering, filled with disappointments, often with painfully funny results. I cut my life's teeth on the shards of my shattered glass slipper dreams. Until one day, my fairy godmother decided I'd suffered enough. My life became an honest-to-goodness love story complete with a real glass slipper. Happily ever after is possible. Take a lesson or two from me.

An original critical introduction to women characters in the novels of Jane Austen. Why does Jane Austen “mania” continue unabated in a postmodern world? How does the brilliant Regency novelist speak so personally to today’s women that they view her as their best friend? Jane Austen’s Womenanswers these questions by exploring Austen’s affirming yet challenging vision of both who her dynamic female characters are, and who they become. This important new work analyzes the heroines’ relationships to body, mind, spirit, environment, and society. It reveals how, despite a restrictive patriarchal culture, these women achieve greatness. In clear, lively prose, Kathleen Anderson shares original theoretical insights from twenty years of studying Austen, and illuminates the novels as guidebooks on how to become an Austenian heroine in one’s everyday life. This engaging book will appeal to a broad readership: the serious student, the general lit-lover, and the Austen neophyte alike. “Jane Austen’s Women examines aspects of Austen’s female characters in new ways. Anderson thoroughly and competently sifts through the many meanings of ‘womanhood’ in Austen’s time and, directly or by implication, in our own. It was a pleasure to read this delightful analysis accompanied by illuminating references to our own contemporary culture.” — Susan Ostrov Weisser, author of The Glass Slipper: Women and Love Stories “Jane Austen’s Women hits the sweet spot between delightful critical introduction and inspiring guidebook for how to live out Austen’s vision of what Kathleen Anderson calls ‘the heroinism of everyday life.’ Her discerning close readings of female bodies, emotions, intelligence, work, and love combine lucid interpretation with strong insight. This book will prompt readers of Austen, whether seasoned or beginning, to return to Austen’s novels with vital questions and renewed energy.” — Devoney Looser, author of The Making of Jane Austen
