This is a memoir about being in your twenties, and all the foibles, misadventures, and heartbreak that accompany those years. Looking back on a time period that is hauntingly near to him, Taylor delves into relationships he's had that have left him bruised, broken and oft times calloused and caustic, whilst exploring the trials of being broke, rudderless and confused with adulthood. Everyone has seen or read a love story; this is not a love story. This is a story of quasi love, of unrequited feelings and spurned advances. Despite the afflictions and sorrow, the story is told in a humorous and often optimistic tone. Though the author talks about many girls, the bulk of the text is about or returns its focus to one girl, the one that got away. Will Taylor find his way back to this dame, or will he be doomed to an impecunious life of lust and loneliness?

The Russian Empire once extended deep into America: in 1818 Russia's furthest outposts were in California and Hawaii. The dreamer behind this great Imperial vision was Nikolai Rezanov ? diplomat, adventurer, courtier, millionaire and gambler. His quest to plant Russian colonies from Siberia to California led him to San Francisco, where he was captivated by Conchita, the fifteen-year-old daughter of the Spanish Governor, who embodied his dreams of both love and empire. From the glittering court of Catherine the Great to the wilds of the New World, Matthews conjures a brilliantly original portrait of one of Russia's most eccentric Empire-builders.
