THE FRAGRANCE OF SWEET-GRASS:  L.M. MONTGOMERY'S HEROINES AND THE PURSUIT OF ROMANCE., Epperly, Elizabeth Rollins.  (Lucy Maud Montgomery.  L.M.)
5 Epperly, Elizabeth Rollins. (Lucy Maud Montgomery. L.M.) THE FRAGRANCE OF SWEET-GRASS: L.M. MONTGOMERY'S HEROINES AND THE PURSUIT OF ROMANCE.
Toronto University of Toronto Press 1993 0802074618 / 9780802074614 First Paperback Edition. Very Good+ 
275 pp, 8vo (9" H). "Anne Shirley is the best known of a memorable group of heroines created by Lucy Maud Montgomery, a group that includes Emily Byrd Starr, Valancy Stirling, and Pat Gardiner. These characters are at the centre of Epperly's book, the first full-length critical study of all L.M. Montgomery's fiction. Epperly contends that Montgomery was a master of the romance genre, and through her use of literary allusions, repetitions, irony, and comic inversions she deftly manipulated the normal conventions of romance novels. By studying the fictional biographies of the heroines and their pursuit of romance, Epperly question the ways romance shapes what we consider valuable in our imaginings and experience. A book written for L.M. Montgomery fans and scholars." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very minor edge wear, clean and bright.

INSIDE KENSINGTON PALACE., Morton, Andrew.

Michael O'Mara, London, 1987. 
176 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0948397969 B&w photographs. "Kensington Palace, for years a forgotten semi-derelict royal residence described by Edward VII as an 'aunt heap', is today the decorous London home of some of the most famous members of the royal family. Among its inmates are the charismatic royal headline makers, the Prince and Princess of Wales; the stylish and ambitious Princess Michael of Kent; the more sombre and sober Duke and Duchess o f G l o u c e ster; and Princess Margaret, once, like her younger female relatives, considered fair game by the world's press but now largely ignored by the media and enjoying a quiet and very comfortable life. (This book) takes the general public - no rm al ly o nl y allowed access to the State Apartments - on a tour of discovery into the private residences of four royal households, revealing the intimate and formerly secret details of their day-to-day lives. We learn of an old teddy bea r t h at eve ry nig ht is tucked up into the bed of England's next monarch; of the Princess who likes to ride in her chauffeur-driven car with the interior lights on so she can be clearly seen by the 'peasants' in the street; and of the teetotal Duk e wh o ins ured hi s we ddi ng anniversary celebrations against a cancellation by Britain's possible defeat in the Falklands War. (It) is about royalty behind closed doors. (The author) lets us see how the royals behave when they think the world isn't l ooki ng. He p ortra ys t hes e royal super-stars as human beings who have the same sort of loves and hates, jealousies and fears as the rest of us."
