A Room of His Own sheds light on the mysterious ways of male associational culture as it examines such topics as fraternity, sophistication, nostalgia, social capital, celebrity, gossip, and male professionalism. The story of clubland (and the literature it generated) begins with Britain's military heroes home from the Napoleonic campaign and quickly turns to Dickens's and Thackeray's acrimonious Garrick Club Affair.
Six months ago, Jessie's only problem was getting a ride to Friday night beach parties. Then her mother is murdered in a horrific way and Jessie's friends start dying, one by one. Jessie doesn't believe in the supernatural, but strange things keep happening to her anyway. Her dead mother visits her dreams, she has bizarre visions, and a predator stalks the Florida night. Jessie hears rumors that her friends were butchered for their blood.
