Содержание:
The Authors in Context series, a subseries of the Oxford World's Classics series, examines the work of major authors in relation to their own times and to the present day. Combining history with lively literary discussion, each volume provides comprehensive insight into texts in their context. Charles Dickens was both a representative Victorian and an artist who is quintessentially a "Post-Romantic." He was the most popular author of his age and the one who most vividly reflected the contradictory impulses of Victorian society, its energy and invention as much as its social and political anomalies. This book explores Dickens's interest in the urban phenomenon, which so marks nineteenth-century culture, and it looks at the vital interconnection between his life and his art. Like his character, David Copperfield, Dickens lived his life and pursued his career "thoroughly in earnest," but he was also a great comic writer whose work resonates well beyond his own age and continues to...

Loree Rackstraw

Love as Always, Kurt: Vonnegut as I Knew Him

A loving, intimate memoir from a lifelong friend of Kurt Vonnegut, including photos and never-before-published correspondence When Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. ducked into his classroom at the Iowa Writer’s Workshop in September of 1965, his jokes drew only weak laughter and a few rolled eyes. But workshop student Loree Rackstraw was quietly impressed by this “great bear of a man” and his down-to-earth sensibilities about writing. That fall, an impossible romance began between the then-unknown author and his studenta??a brief affair that matured into a joyful, lifelong friendship. Rackstraw distills four decades of memories and Vonnegut’s letters to her into an affectionate memoir that crackles with the creative energy of one of America’s most beloved writers. Rackstraw’s unique perspective on Vonnegut’s life and how it shaped his famous works portrays a deeply humane man who looked for the humor and absurdity in life in order to survive. And then there are Vonnegut’s own letters: Whether...

All I Could Bare: My Life in the Strip Clubs of Gay Washington, D.C.

A FRANK, FUNNY, EXPLICIT, AND INSPIRING MEMOIR ABOUT HOW DANCING NAKED IN GAY CLUBS IN THE NATION'S CAPITAL HELPED A COLLEGE PROFESSOR DISCOVER HIS TRUE SELF.I felt that I'd made a transformation as surely as Superman slipping out of a phone booth or Wonder Woman doing a sunburst spin. I was bare-ass in a room of paying strangers, a stripper. After years of wondering what it would be like, I had done it -- faced a fear, defied expectation, embraced a taboo self. It was only the beginning....All I Could Bare is the story of a mild-mannered graduate student who "took the road less clothed" -- a decision that was life changing. Seymour embarked on his journey in the 1990s, when Washington, D.C.'s gay club scene was notoriously no-holds-barred, all the while trying to keep his newfound vocation a secret from his parents and maintain a relation-ship with his boyfriend, Seth. Along the way he met some unforgettable characters -- the fifty-year-old divorce who's obsessed with a...

The Waxman Report: How Congress Really Works

At a time when some of the most sweeping national initiatives in decades are being debated, Congressman Henry Waxman offers a fascinating inside account of how Congress really works by describing the subtleties and complexities of the legislative process. For four decades, Waxman has taken visionary and principled positions on crucial issues and been a driving force for change. Because of legislation he helped champion, our air is cleaner, our food is safer, and our medical care better. Thanks to his work as a top watchdog in Congress, crucial steps have been taken to curb abuses on Wall Street, to halt wasteful spending in Iraq, and to ban steroids from Major League Baseball. Few legislators can match his accomplishments or his insights on how good work gets done in Washington.In this book, Waxman affords readers a rare glimpse into how this is achieved-the strategy, the maneuvering, the behind-the-scenes deals. He shows how the things we take for granted (clear information about...

Conversations with Woody Allen: His Films, the Movies, and Moviemaking (Vintage)

In discussions that begin in 1971 and end in 2009, Allen talks about every facet of moviemaking through the prism of his own work as well as the larger world of film, and in so doing reveals an artist’s development over the course of his career. He speaks about his influences and about the genesis of his ideas; about writing, casting, acting, shooting, directing, editing, and scoring—and throughout shows himself to be thoughtful, honest, self-deprecating, always witty, and often hilarious.

Answering the Call: From a Child of the NAACP to the Federal Bench and Beyond

This special excerpted edition of Answering the Call, the forthcoming memoirs of Judge Nathaniel R. Jones, was created to honor the 100th Anniversary of the NAACP. Judge Jones, former General Counsel of NAACP, provides context and analysis of major events in the civil rights movement. These accounts from the front lines of the judicial battlefront include a behind-the-scenes look at the Kerner Commission, President Johnson’s famous “Riot Commission;” an extensive section on the historic fight for justice in the military; and little-known facts about the pardon of the last of the “Scottsboro boys.” From Jones’s experience as deputy counsel for landmark school desegregation cases in the north to his reflections on the election of President Obama, the retired U.S. Court of Appeals judge sheds new light on the chain of events that brought the country to the moment of electing its first African American president.
