    In the Shadow of Fame, by the daughter of world-renowned psychoanalyst and theorist Erik Erikson, is the intimate story of her struggle to come to terms with her father's fame and to develop a sense of self in a family, and world, in which being famous is the very definition of being a worthwhile human being. And, while her story is unique in its personal details, it is also a description of the struggle faced by all of us in a modern world.

    These are confessions, and Ilona Paris - and her cougar pals - have plenty to confess. And they’re proud of it. A “cougar” is a woman in her forties (or so), who indulges in the pleasures of younger men in a quest for terrific sex without the hassles of a relationship. These women have been there, done that. In Hot Cougar Sex, their wild, sexy encounters are described with a brazen voice that seduces but never apologizes.

    We share our lives, for better or worse, with a multitude of animals: white-tailed deer and white-tailed eagles, hens and wrens, frogs and guppies, and, last but hardly least, bugs and bacteria. For the most part, we drift along separately, with neither man nor animal affecting the other's way of life. Sometimes, however, we fall in love - as in the case of the cat in the title - or otherwise encounter our animal neighbors in ways that change both of us.
