Girl With Green Eyes
By Edna O'Brien
A classic title in Edna O'Brien's Country Girls Trilogy - the second volumeFrom eccentric Joanna's boarding house, predatory Baba roams Dublin looking for men to give her a good time - and dragging with her a reluctant Cait, worrying about her figure and wanting to talk about books.Then she meets dark, long-faced Eugene Gaillard, a film director, and for a while Cait's romantic dreams seem to be fulfilled. But Eugene Gaillard is a Protestant divorcé, and when Cait's drunkard father gets to hear of it, he summons a lynch mob¿ Steering expertly between high romance, outright farce and the blend of them that is reality, Girl with Green Eyes is an original and joyful story of the gateway to adulthood.
Girls in their Married Bliss
By Edna O'Brien

And when Eugene takes terrible, implacable revenge, she naturally turns to her brazen friend Baba for help.But Baba, the bored trophy wife of builder Frank, vulgarly flashing his wealth and ignorance to the world, has her own problems without Kate drooping self-pityingly over her. And both women find unsuspected qualities in themselves as they learn to face reality.

Glass Painting for the First Time
By Doris Sorensen
Glass painting can be as simple as sponging on a little colour to make a fun design, or as elaborate as texturing and frosting detailed patterns. You¿ll be amazed at what you can do, especially when guided by an introduction that answers all the basic questions: what do I need to get started, and what will it cost? What kinds of applicators and paint do I use? How do I apply a pattern, and achieve different effects, from 'drip and glaze' to reverse imaging? For every technique there¿s a project - like an Italian glass bottle with millefiori and a monogrammed box with stencilling. As you advance, combine colours on a Heart to Heart Canning Jar Lamp; co-ordinate different pieces of whiteware in a Funky Tea Set; and design with laydowns and one-strokes.
