"In Consuming Fantasies: Labor, Leisure, and the London Shopgirl, 1880-1920, Lise Shapiro Sanders examines the cultural significance of the shopgirl - both historical figure and fictional heroine - from the end of Queen Victoria's reign through the First World War. As the author reveals, the shopgirl embodied the fantasies associated with a growing consumer culture: romantic adventure, upward mobility, and the acquisition of material goods. Reading novels such as George Gissing's The Odd Women and W. Somerset Maugham's Of Human Bondage as well as short stories, musical comedies, and films, Sanders argues that the London shopgirl appeared in the midst of controversies over sexual morality and the pleasures and dangers of London itself. Sanders explores the shopgirl's centrality to modern conceptions of fantasy, desire, and everyday life for working women and argues for her as a key figure in cultural and social histories of the period. This study will appeal to scholars, students, and enthusiasts of Victorian and Edwardian life and literature."--BOOK JACKET.

In this industrious tale of revenge, women of latent power rebel, turn the tides and end their frustration. A frustrated Millicent Hayward decides to end husband Harold's annoying attempts to please himself with his inadequate equipment, locking away an organ which the women of the world will never miss. In doing so she finds a level of arousal not before achieved and a Harold who begins to better perform orally. Curious body modifications assist in Harold's new role and Millicent enters a new world of feminine authority. After training her husband to offer pleasure but never to receive, she next turns the tables on her once wealthy libertine boss, and Millie learns that she is not alone in her quest to transform male desire into meaningful and ardent feminine ecstasy. The boss has secret penchants that led to an expensive divorce and enables his proficient assistant, the experienced Penepole Teasdale, to take control a very lucrative enterprise. Readers will thrill in learning of Miss Teasdale's background. Just where does a prim and well educated woman learn to so thoroughly control the male organ? Millie is also joined by her jaded neighbor and nurse Julie Danforth who will finally take control of her philandering husband. In the author's world of feminine dominion, the phallus is deemed superfluous to sexual gratification. Oral pleasure rules. Therefore the penis is best locked away and relegated to being a source of control and torment rather than enjoyment. Instead it is the tongue which best satisfies. And what better way to ensure fervent oral servitude than to demand thorough chastity and thus assure that the male desire for ecstasy be experienced only vicariously, felt through she holding the key to an ineluctable chastity device.

This definitely was not the place for good people to survive. Forget good people, this was not the place for anyone to survive. Everything was clear to me now and I could see it all. Eklavya had realised this, years back, and therefore had shifted his focus on only making money, and nothing else. Personally, he surely was a perfect blend of compassion and prudence but now was outraged by the sudden image assassination of his boss. There was anger running through the veins of the ones who worked genuinely hard. Time had come to take charge than to succumb to the games of the corporate goons. This was the challenge, and this challenge was pushing them to prove a point. Enough was enough, and now it was time to pay back.

Emile Zola (1840-1902) was an influential French novelist, the most important example of the literary school of naturalism, and a major figure in the political liberalization of France. More than half of his novels were part of a set of 20 collectively known as Les Rougon-Macquart. Set in France's Second Empire, the series traces the 'hereditary' influence of violence, alcoholism, and prostitution in two branches of a single family: the respectable (that is, legitimate) Rougons and the disreputable (illegitimate) Macquarts, for five generations. His works include Therese Raquin (1867), Germinal (1885), Abbe Mouret's Transgression (1886), The Three Cities, Part I (1894), The Three Cities, Part II (1896), The Three Cities, Part III (1898), Fruitfulness (1900), and A Love Episode (1905).
