The six stories of Coming Unglued take us on a tour of moments when, as Yates put it things fall apart/the center cannot hold, moments populated by Stalin's paranoid flunkies, postapocalyptic free love commune dwellers, spin doctors for a town accursed, teachers keeping secrets, and luckless art thieves bedeviled by hulking men in black.
~ Coming Unglued is a story of hope and courage even in the face of adversity. It reveals the good, the bad and the ugly parts of marriage and/or relationships yet is balanced so as not to drag the reader down. The characters are strong and, in some cases, you may see them in your mirror. ~ Kelly had everything a young woman could hope for: an admirable boyfriend, a strong family unit and the determination to succeed. A few moments shattered everything. En route to a friend's house, Kelly was raped and, weeks later, learned she was pregnant. Debating the best course of action, Kelly found herself facing her greatest fears as she explored long held desires of her heart and soul. When life seemed to have settled into a normal routine, a surprise encounter with her rapist changed Kelly's life forever. After apologizing and confessing his undying love, he set about winning Kelly's heart. Tragedy strikes. Hearts are broken; lives are shattered. In trying to move forward, Kelly makes a decision which will affect everyone who loves her - a decision which brings her to the lowest depths of hell within a marriage. According to Michael Phelps, author of two Mike Walsh Detective Novels, co-author of My Fugitive with Ellie Janssen and author of David Janssen: Our Conversations, Coming Unglued is "riveting, striking, inspiring...a book everyone should read who is, or has been, involved with domestic abuse!" Adds Jeanie Greer of Englewood, Florida, "I finished Coming Unglued and, even though what I went through couldn't come close to Kelly's experiences, it nevertheless mirrored much of the emotional turmoil, grief and sadness I endured. This is surely a read that can also help with the healing process that must take place in order to move on."

During World War II, as the United States called on its citizens to serve in unprecedented numbers, the presence of gay Americans in the armed forces increasingly conflicted with the expanding antihomosexual policies and procedures of the military. In Coming Out Under Fire, Allan Berube examines in depth and detail these social and political confrontation--not as a story of how the military victimized homosexuals, but as a story of how a dynamic power relationship developed between gay citizens and their government, transforming them both. Drawing on GIs' wartime letters, extensive interviews with gay veterans, and declassified military documents, Berube thoughtfully constructs a startling history of the two wars gay military men and women fough--one for America and another as homosexuals within the military. Berube's book, the inspiration for the 1995 Peabody Award-winning documentary film of the same name, has become a classic since it was published in 1990, just three years prior to the controversial "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which has continued to serve as an uneasy compromise between gays and the military. With a new foreword by historians John D'Emilio and Estelle B. Freedman, this book remains a valuable contribution to the history of World War II, as well as to the ongoing debate regarding the role of gays in the U.S. military.
