Blue Suburbia : Almost a Memoir

1609.00 руб.*

Laurie Albanese

Blue Suburbia : Almost a Memoir

Book Description Blue Suburbia is a searing memoir so fresh, original, and honest that it will break your heart and renew your faith in the human spirit. With each spare stroke of her pen, Laurie Lico Albanese paints a vivid portrait of the blue-collar landscape of her childhood -- rusted swing sets, auto body shops, greasy hands, home improvements -- taking readers along for the wild, treacherous ride that leads to her escape. Her mother may stand silently at the sink year after year, orlie in the basement weeping, but Albanese is determined to flee the deadening certainty of her parents' lives. Her story does not disappoint us. By turns haunting, hilarious, tragic, and romantic, Blue Suburbia is the chronicle of a determined young woman who overcomes family limitations, socio-economic obstacles, and personal fears to build a happy -- and blessedly ordinary -- life. Written entirely in free verse, Blue Suburbia's cadence is a steady, rhythmic heartbeat, pulsing...

Bookless in Baghdad: Reflections on Writing and Writers

Book Description'A fluid and powerful writer, one of the best in a generation of Indian authors' (New York Times Book Review), Shashi Tharoor, the acclaimed author of six books, all published by Arcade, is once again at his provocative best. Supremely personal, yet always probing and analytical, this brilliant collection is part memoir, part essay and literary criticism. In the title piece, we learn what Iraqis go through in their beleaguered land merely to get hold of a book, and how selling books from their own libraries on the street helps some put bread on the table. Tharoor reminisces about growing up with books in India and discusses the importance of the Mahabharata in Indian life and history. There is also a poignant homage to Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, whose home was raided by the oppressive military regime while he lay on his deathbed, and who famously said: 'There is only one thing of danger for you here-my poetry!' Pondering world affairs, Tharoor declares that 'the...

The world would probubly have lad the most perfect example of biography that WBS ever exhibited.

Breaking the Rule of Cool: Interviewing and Reading Women Beat Writers

The Beat movement nurtured many female dissidents and artists who contributed to Beat culture and connected the Beats with the second wave of the women's movement. Although they have often been eclipsed by the men of the Beat Generation, the women's contributions to Beat literature are considerable. Covering writers from the beginning of the movement in the 1950s and extending to the present, this book features interviews with nine of the best-known women Beat writers, including Dianedi Prima, ruth weiss, Joyce Johnson, Hettie Jones, Joanne Kyger, Brenda Frazer (Bonnie Bremser), Janine Pommy Vega, Anne Waldman, and the critic Ann Charters. Each is presented by a biographical essay that details her literary or scholarly accomplishments. In these recent interviews the nine writers recall their lives in Beat bohemia and discuss their artistic practices. Nancy M. Grace outlines the goals and revelations of the interviews, and introduces the community of female Beat writers created...

Brief Lives: Stendhal

Stendhal, the pen name for Marie-Henri Beyle, is remembered today as one of the originators of the modern novel and a founder of realism. During his lifetime, however, he was reputed to be a religious dissident and was perhaps best known as a fervent supporter of Napoleon. This major new biography traces Stendhal's gradual evolution into a writer following the defeat and exile of his political hero. Stendhal's politics, ambitions, and many passionate love affairs are all addressed along with his complex relationship with his younger sister, Pauline.

Brother Men : The Correspondence of Edgar Rice Burroughs and Herbert T. Weston

Book Description Brother Men is the first published collection of private letters of Edgar Rice Burroughs, the phenomenally successful author of adventure, fantasy, and science fiction tales, including the Tarzan series. The correspondence presented here is Burroughs’s decades-long exchange with Herbert T. Weston, the maternal great-grandfather of this volume’s editor, Matt Cohen. The trove of correspondence Cohen discovered unexpectedly during a visit home includes hundreds of items?letters, photographs, telegrams, postcards, and illustrations?spanning from 1903 to 1945. Since Weston kept carbon copies of his own letters, the material comprises a record of a lifelong friendship that had begun in the 1890s, when the two men met in military school. In these letters, Burroughs and Weston discuss their experiences of family, work, war, disease and health, sports, and new technology over a time period spanning two World Wars, the Great Depression, and...

Brother Mine: The Correspondence of Jean Toomer and Waldo Frank

The friendship of Jean Toomer and Waldo Frank was one of the most emotionally intense, racially complicated, and aesthetically significant relationships in the history of American literary modernism. Waldo Frank was an established white writer who advised and assisted the younger African American Jean Toomer as he pursued a literary career. They met in 1920, began corresponding regularly in 1922, and were estranged by the end of 1923, the same year that Toomer published his ambitiously modernist debut novel, Cane. While individual letters between Frank and Toomer have been published separately on occasion, they have always been presented out of context. This volume presents for the first time their entire correspondence in chronological order, comprising 121 letters ranging from 200 to 800 words each. Kathleen Pfeiffer annotates and introduces the letters, framing the correspondence and explaining the literary and historical allusions in the letters themselves. ...

Byron and Hobby-O: Lord Byrons Relationship with John Cam Hobhouse

"Byron and Hobby-O" is about the relationship between Byron and his supposed best friend, John Cam Hobhouse. It is the first full-length biographical study of Hobhouse in over fifty years, and is much franker and more intimate than anything preceding. It shows how, while the two men were initially collaborators and rivals, Byron rapidly outstretched Hobhouse in poetry, while Hobhouse, in the longer term, outstretched Byron in politics. It shows how long acquaintance with the elusive and chameleonic Byron turned Hobhouse into a canter and humbug of the kind Byron hated, and concludes with an account of the first English invasion of Afghanistan, which Hobhouse initiated. The book is based in part on long study of Hobhouse's diary, much of which Peter Cochran has edited.
Byron in Love

Edna O'Brien

Byron in Love

Lord George Gordon Byron was the first literary rock star, a fallen angel whose flaws were redeemed by his magnetism, heroism and tragic destiny. He had many diverse and colourful lovers - of both sexes - in his life, but it was the love triangle with his wife and half-sister that earned him timeless notoriety. Edna O'Brien's rich and intense portrait follows the passions of Europe's ultimate Adonis from Regency London to the wilds of Albania and pleasures of the Mediterranean. This is a scandalous, remorseless tale of the poet as rebel - imaginative, lawless and defiantly immortal.

Charles Dickens: A Critical Study

G. K. Chesterton

Charles Dickens: A Critical Study

Chapter 1 the Dickens period much of our modern difficulty, in religion and other things, arises merely from this, that we confuse the word "indefinable" with the word "vague". If some one speaks of a spiritual fact as "indefinable" we promptly picture something misty, a cloud with indeterminate edges. But this is an error even in common-place logic. The thing that cannot be defined is the first thing; the primary fact. It is our arms and legs, our pots and pans, that are indefinable. The indefinable is the indisputable. The man next door is indefinable, because he is too actual to be defined. And there are some to whom spiritual things have the same fierce and practical proximity; some to whom God is too actual to be defined. But there is a third class of primary terms. There are popular expressions vhich every one uses and no one can explain; vhich the wise man will accept and reverence, as he reverences desire or darkness or any elemental thing.

George Gissing

Charles Dickens: A Critical Study

More than a quarter of a century has now elapsed since the death of Charles Dickens. The time which shaped him and sent him forth is so far behind us, as to have become a matter of historical study for the present generation; the time which knew him as one of its foremost figures, and so much to the influences of his wondrous personality, is already made remote by a social revolution of which he watched the mere beginning. It seems possible to regard Dickens from the standpoint of posterity; to consider his career, to review his literary work, and to estimate his total activity in relation to an age which, intelligibly speaking, is no longer our own. When Queen Victoria came to the throne Charles Dickens was twenty-five years old.
