Beneath the crackled and faded painting of a horse, underneath the worn and dusty floorboards of the dining room, lives Celeste, a mouse who spends her days weaving baskets, until one day she is thrust into the world above. Here Celeste encounters danger—and love—unlike any she's ever imagined. She dodges a hungry cat and witnesses the brutality of hunting for the first time. She makes friends with a singing thrush named Cornelius, a talkative osprey named Lafayette, and Joseph, Audubon's young apprentice. All the while, Celeste is looking for a new home. Is her home in the toe of a worn boot? Nestled in Joseph's pocket? Or in the dollhouse in the attic, complete with mouse-size furniture perfect for Celeste? In the end, Celeste discovers that home is really the place deep inside her heart, where friendships live.

'What a subject for a film, but not, please, Meryl Streep ... Together with Dr Patricia Clancy (Melbourne University) and Jeanne Allen's (La Trobe University) elegant translation and able notes, the memoirs make for a piquant, informative, variegated and often startling read ... Miegunyah Press you've done it again.' (Derek Whitelock, Weekend Australian) A former Parisian courtesan, circus performer and dancer, C leste de Chabrillan scandalised Melbourne society when she arrived in 1854 as the wife of the French Consul. These memoirs give a vivid firsthand account of the two-and-a-half years she spent in gold-rush Victoria. C leste's arrival in Melbourne was preceded by the publication of her memoirs describing her illegitimate birth, miserable adolescence and celebrity career as a courtesan, bareback rider and polka dancer. As a result she was dubbed the consul's 'harlot spouse' and ostracised by society. Despite this, C leste did not avoid the public gaze and continued to employ her literary talents. Her memoirs are of a life spent in the village of St Kilda, the diplomatic and government house circle and the Ballarat gold fields. Her descriptions of a public hanging, Governor Hotham's 'beer ball' and her own Ball for the Victims of Crimea reveal her as a woman of great energy and wilful temperament.

Courtesan, countess, bestselling author - the tempestuous true story of a woman far ahead of her time ... The true story of the Countess Céleste de Chabrillan is a rich and tempestuous tale of an extraordinary woman. Born in the gutters of Paris in 1824, Céleste made her name as a dancer in the Parisian dance halls, where it is said she invented the can-can. Then, as an equestrienne at the Paris hippodrome, her daring feats on horseback thrilled the crowds. However, it was as the city's most celebrated courtesan that the young Parisian found genuine fame and fortune. Strikingly beautiful and charismatic, her lovers included famous novelists, artists and composers, not least Georges Bizet, whom, many believe, based his free and fearless Carmen on Céleste. But when Céleste married the Count de Chabrillan, a prominent member of the French aristocracy, Parisian society was scandalised. And when the pair turned up in far off Australia, where the count served as the first French consul, Melbourne society was scandalised in turn. Later a bestselling memoirist, novelist, playwright and librettist, the remarkable Countess Céleste de Chabrillan was, indeed, a woman far ahead of her time.

What became of the crew has remained one of the sea's greatest mysteries for over 100 years.

Celeste is an archetypal heroine for modern times: a courageous young girl searching for knowledge in a stymied environment. Interspersed with humorous character portraits and parodies of today's institutions, Celeste Rivere and the Cup of Destiny follows an individual's struggles against overwhelming odds in her search for life's meaning: metaphorically a journey from the sleepy village where she was raised to the lofty mountains she yearns to climb. Fairy tales, myths and legends are blended with themes drawn from philosophers of the twentieth century; a potent amalgam that brings these ideas into a tangible form that is easily accessible to readers of all ages. Mystical or a tantalizing fantasy -- you be the judge. What is next for our valiant and intrepid heroine? Watch for the second book in the series.

Dalla gloria all’inarrestabile declino. Com’è possibile che un politico resti al governo della più importante regione italiana per quasi vent’anni? Questa è la storia di un uomo inossidabile alle critiche e alle numerose inchieste giudiziarie da cui è sempre uscito indenne. Il sistema politico e affaristico costruito in tanti anni sembra reggere a qualsiasi attacco anche grazie alla protezione dei cattolici di Comunione e liberazione (Formigoni entra nei Memores Domini a 23 anni). Al centro di tutto la sanità, che favorisce un enorme giro di denaro e che premia il profitto rispetto alla salute utilizzando qualsiasi mezzo, dalle cartelle contraffatte ai fondi neri. Vale la pena di seguire l’evoluzione politica e personale di Formigoni, dal pauperismo iniziale ai lussi condivisi con personaggi di dubbia caratura morale: così si capisce come la politica sia riuscita in questi anni a tradire la sua vocazione pubblica per diventare un’occasione di arricchimento personale. Nessuno che sia riuscito a fermarlo, a spezzare l’equilibrio di un sistema che forse era comodo non solo a Formigoni.
