A Marked Woman Foor Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A Marked Woman, is based on a true story of a husband's betrayal. It takes place in central Pennsylvania when Naomi Bryar awakens in a mental institution. Trapped behind closed doors her attempt to escape fails. She fights back as attendants force a strait jacket over her head, pull her arms tight across her chest and drag her to a padded cell. Exhausted she lay helpless on the matted floor. Sobbing till her voice is but a whisper she recalls her early years during the 1929 Depression, the happy times raising her two children in the Pennsylvania woods, and the difficulties World War II brought about during her 23 years of marriage. Naomi did her best to follow her religious up-bringing. There were many twists and turns during her 43 years of life, but what did she do so wrong that landed her here? ż In Joan Foor's gripping novel, A Marked Woman, we relive a time in recent history when a philadering husband could commit his wife to a life of torture, a time when mis-diagnosis was rampant and straight jackets and shock therapy were accepted medical "treatments." We share a daughter and son's frustration, knowing the truth about their father's mistress, yet unable to rescue their mother. The story grabs and does not let go, and the charming 1940's romance of the fated couple only makes the outcome more painful. A haunting, unforgettable must read.--Kathryn Jordan, Author of Hot Water, Gladys and Capone, In The Time of Apricots, and The Sins of Esther Mary. "The author has poured out her heart in this gut-wrenching story based on her mother's tortured life."-Cynda Thomas, author of He Came From The Sky, Hell of A Ride, and new release The WASP and the HORNET.

Golden Step Walk Through Heart Of Crete The Armchair Traveller At Book

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

For Somerville this was a kind of pilgrimage, a journey unlike any he had undertaken in 20 years of travel-writing. It was an expedition where he traded the usual comforts and certainties for a real physical and mental challenge, with no mobile phone or other technological aids. The only plan for his journey was to begin in the East at Easter and finish at Whitsun in the extreme West, at the Monastery of the Golden Step, whose gold step, legend says, can only be seen by those who have purged themselves into purity. During his 300-mile walk, he tackled four mountain ranges, high slopes and the numerous gorges of the West. Speaking only basic Greek and trying to follow a poorly way-marked path, he had to rely on his own instincts when climbing mountain passes and crossing high plateaux, farming and shepherding country, where villages are scarce and each night's accommodation was uncertain. He saw a Crete few ever encounter.

But as the family stand by the graveside, his son Alvaro notices the arrival of a stranger -- a young and attractive woman. No one appears to know who she is, or why she is there. Alvaro's questions only deepen when the family inherits an enormous amount of money that is a surprise even to them. In his father's study Alvaro discovers an old folder with letters sent to his father in Russia between 1941 and 1943, faded photos of people he never met and a locked grey metal box.

Her fate, and that of the family, now hangs on the secrets of Julio's past. From the provincial heartlands of Spain to the battlefields of Russia, THE FROZEN HEART is a mesmerising journey through a war that tore families apart, pitted fathers against sons, brothers against brothers, wives against husbands. Against such a past, where do faith and loyalty lie?

Irish Blood, English Heart ATRIUM BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Second-generation Irish musicians have played a vital role in the history of popular music in England. This book explores the role of Irish ethnicity in the lives and work of these musicians, focusing on three high-profile projects: Kevin Rowland and Dexys Midnight Runners, Shane MacGowan and The Pogues, and Morrissey/Marr and The Smiths. The book locates these musicians in a hyphenated 'Irish-Englishness' marked by 'in-between-ness' and explores the different ways that they engaged with this in-betweenness through their creative work and their engagements with audiences, the media and the music industry. The book draws on extensive archival research of print and audio-visual media as well as original interviews with the key figures, including Shane MacGowan, Johnny Marr, Kevin Rowland and Cait O'Riordan. Combining its assiduous research with fresh critical insights, the book offers new analyses of the musicians, as well as previously undocumented accounts of their lives and work. The book highlights the diversity and complexity of second-generation Irish identities and experience and details the diverse ways in which this generation has shaped popular music in England. Accessible and original, 'Irish Blood, English Heart' will be of interest to students and scholars in the fields of popular music, media/cultural studies, and ethnic/migration studies. It will also appeal to a wider audience of those interested in the musicians with whom it deals.

To find oneself virtually stateless and 'on the wrong side' during a world war is no picnic. Internment in Malta and Palestine taught Gastone Caruana the art of survival, and introduced him to nubile womanhood. A marriage that started well enough ended up as no bed of roses and marked one of many experiences along the way that shaped the author's life. However, working as a bacteriologist in London, he was fortunate enough to find a 'replacement' wife, eighteen years his junior. Were his career in the Health Service (specialism: bacteriology and parasitology) and his second marriage plain sailing? Not as regards his career! And his final move to the banks of the Moselle brought him an unforgettable intimacy with river water. Now, in the company of his loving wife and a cohort of cats, he invites you, the reader, to share his wry and witty memoirs of a - to say the least - varied life. Gastone Caruana was born in Berlin. He left Germany with his parents at age six due to the advent of the Nazis. His early years were spent in Italy and Malta. He spent the war years interned as an enemy alien in Palestine. In England he studied pathology and worked in London till redundancy came with the rationalisation of the health service. For the next fourteen years he earned his living as a taxi driver. He now lives in Germany with one wife and six cats.

Multiple Worlds of Pynchon's Mason & Dixon Camden House

Powieści i opowiadania

Thomas Pynchon's 1997 novel "Mason & Dixon" marked a deep shift in Pynchon's career and in American letters in general. All of Pynchon's novels had been socially and politically aware, marked by social criticism and a profound questioning of American values. They have carried the labels of satire and black humor, and "Pynchonesque" has come to be associated with erudition, a playful style, anachronisms and puns - and an interest in scientific theories, popular culture, paranoia, and the "military-industrial complex." In short, Pynchon's novels were the sine qua non of postmodernism; Mason & Dixon went further, using the same style, wit, and erudition to re-create an 18th century when "America" was being formed as both place and idea. Pynchon's focus on the creation of the Mason-Dixon Line and the governmental and scientific entities responsible for it makes a clearer statement than any of his previous novels about the slavery and imperialism at the heart of the Enlightenment, as he levels a dark and hilarious critique at this America. This volume of new essays studies the interface between 18th- and 20th-century culture both in Pynchon's novel and in the historical past. It offers fresh thinking about Pynchon's work, as the contributors take up the linkages between the 18th and 20th centuries in studies that are as concerned with culture as with the literary text itself. Contributors include: Mitchum Huehls, Brian Thill, Colin Clarke, Pedro Garcia-Caro, Dennis Lensing, Justin M. Scott Coe, Ian Copestake, and, Frank Palmeri. Elizabeth Jane Wall Hinds is Professor and Chair of the English Department at SUNY Brockport.

Jude the Obscure Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Thomas Hardy's last novel, "Jude the Obscure" is a fearless exploration of the hypocrisy of Victorian society, edited with an introduction by Dennis Taylor in "Penguin Classics". Jude Fawley's hopes of an education at Christminster University are dashed when he is trapped into marrying the wild, earthy Arabella, who later abandons him. Moving to Christminster to work as a stonemason, Jude meets and falls in love with his cousin Sue Bridehead, a sensitive, freethinking "New Woman". Refusing to marry merely for the sake of religious convention, Jude and Sue decide instead to live together, but they are shunned by society, and poverty soon threatens to ruin them. "Jude the Obscure", with its fearless and challenging exploration of class and sexual relationships, caused a public furore when it was first published and marked the end of Hardy's career as a novelist. This edition uses the unbowdlerized first-volume text of 1895, and includes a list for further reading, appendices and a glossary. In his introduction, Dennis Taylor examines biblical allusions and the critique of religion in "Jude the Obscure", and its critical reception that led Hardy to abandon novel writing. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928), born Higher Brockhampton, near Dorchester. Though he saw himself primarily as a poet, Hardy was the author of some of the late eighteenth century's major novels: "The Mayor of Casterbridge" (1886), "Tess of the D'Urbervilles" (1891), "Far from the Madding Crowd" (1874), and "Jude the Obscure" (1895). Amidst the controversy caused by "Jude the Obscure", he turned to the poetry he had been writing all his life. In the next thirty years he published over nine hundred poems and his epic drama in verse, "The Dynasts". If you enjoyed "Jude the Obscure", you might also like Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the D'Urbervilles", also available in "Penguin Classics". "Visceral, passionate, anti-hypocrisy, anti-repression...Hardy reaches into our wildest recesses." ("Evening Standard").

No.1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan now delivers her most eagerly awaited novel of all - ten years in the making. In DARK LYCAN, Christine Feehan journeyed into the heart of the Carpathians, and into the souls of two lifemates stirred by the flush of passion and the threat of annihilation. In DARK WOLF, the breathtaking story continues as the bonds of family are imperiled, and the fate of two lovers lies hidden in the seductive shadows between life and death. Skyler Daratrazanoff always recognized the miracle that was Dimitri Tirunul, a man beyond any dream that had ever engaged her nights. But she was human. Vulnerable. He was Carpathian. Nearly immortal. She was nineteen. He was an ancient. Yet she held half his soul, the light to his darkness. Without her, he would not survive. Caught between the two warring species, Dimitri has spent centuries hunting the undead to keep his people free, and humans safe. He had survived honorably when others had chosen to give up their souls. But now, marked for extermination by the Lycans, Dimitri found himself alone, and fearing for his life. But salvation was coming...No Lycan would ever suspect someone like Skyler to dare mount a secret rescue operation. A teenage girl. A human of untested abilities. But she had something no one else had. She was predestined for Dimitri - as he was for her. And there was nothing stronger for Skyler than her desire to see her life-dream come true.

Inspector Minahan Makes a Stand Picador

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In Victorian London, the age of consent was just thirteen. Unwitting girls were regularly enticed, tricked and sold into prostitution. If not marked out for a gentleman in a city brothel, they were legally trafficked to Brussels, Paris and beyond. All the while, the Establishment turned a blind eye. That is, until one policeman wrote an incendiary report. Disgraced for testifying against a violent colleague, Irish inspector Jeremiah Minahan was transferred to the backwater of Chelsea as punishment. Here he met Mary Jeffries, a notorious trafficker and procuress who counted Cabinet members and royalty among her clientele. Within days of reporting Jeffries, Minahan was unceremoniously forced out of the Metropolitan Police. So he turned private detective, setting out to expose the peers and politicians more interested in shielding their own positions (and peccadilloes) than London's child prostitutes. The findings Minahan did reveal in 1885 sparked national outrage: riots, arrests, a tabloid war and a sensational trial...other secrets were so fearful he took them to his grave, where they remained - until now. This is the true tale of a man caught between a corrupt English Establishment and his own rebel heart: a very Victorian scandal, but also, a story for our times.

Medievalism: A Critical History - 2854329873

Medievalism: A Critical History D.S. Brewer

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The field known as "medievalism studies" concerns the life of the Middle Ages after the Middle Ages. Originating some thirty years ago, it examines reinventions and reworkings of the medieval from the Reformation to postmodernity, from Bale and Leland to HBO's Game of Thrones. But what exactly is/> it? An offshoot of medieval studies? A version of reception studies? Or a new form of cultural studies? Can such a diverse field claim coherence? Should it be housed in departments of English, or History, or should it always be interdisciplinary? In responding to such questions, the author traces the history of medievalism from its earliest appearances in the sixteenth century to the present day, across a range of examples drawn from the spheres of literature, art, architecture, music and more. He identifies two major modes, the grotesque and the romantic, and focuses on key phases of the development of medievalism in Europe: the Reformation, the late eighteenth century, and above all the period between 1815 and 1850, which, he argues, represents the zenith of medievalist cultural production. He also contends that the 1840s were medievalism's one moment of canonicity in several European cultures at once. After that, medievalism became a minority form, rarely marked with cultural prestige, though always pervasive and influential. Medievalism: a Critical History scrutinises several key categories - space, time, and selfhood - and traces the impact of medievalism on each. It will be the essential guide to a complex and still evolving field of inquiry. David Matthews teaches medieval studies at the University of Manchester.
