House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski Summary

Johnny Truant wild and troubled sometime employee in a LA tattoo parlour, finds a notebook kept by Zampano, a reclusive old man found dead in a cluttered apartment. Herein is the heavily annotated story of the Navidson Report. Will Navidson, a photojournalist, and his family move into a new house. What happens next is recorded on videotapes and in interviews. Now the Navidsons are household names. Zampano, writing on loose sheets, stained napkins, crammed notebooks, has compiled what must be the definitive work on the events on Ash Tree Lane. But Johnny Truant has never heard of the Navidson Record. Nor has anyone else he knows. And the more he reads about Will Navidson's house, the more frightened he becomes. Paranoia besets him. The worst part is that he can't just dismiss the notebook as the ramblings of a crazy old man. He's starting to notice things changing around him . . . Immensely imaginative. Impossible to put down. Impossible to forget. House of Leavesis thrilling, terrifying and unlike anything you have ever read before.

Le Jardin des Supplices by Octave Mirbeau Summary

À la fin du XIXe siècle, un jeune français, envoyé en mission aux indes, fait la rencontre de Clara, riche héritière, dont il tombe amoureux. Cette femme, troublante et perverse, lui fait visiter le Jardin des supplices, lieu où l'art chinois des fleurs côtoie celui de la torture.

La mélodie by Jim Crace Summary

Alfred Busi, dit Mr Al, est attaqué chez lui par une créature étrange. Les médias crient à l’invasion de bêtes féroces pendant qu’Alfred affirme que son assaillant est un enfant rendu fou par la faim. Alfred, chanteur reconnu qui vient de perdre son épouse, devient alors malgré lui la seule voix dissonante dans la petite ville d’Angleterre frappée depuis quelques temps par de mystérieuses agressions. Lui appelle à la compassion et à l’action collective, alors que les habitants du coin se calfeutrent et développent un discours réactionnaire de plus en plus haineux. D’un sujet de société – la pauvreté, le sort des migrants – Jim Crace a fait un roman-fable mélancolique qui est aussi une réflexion sur la place de l’artiste dans le monde.

Un rapport by Brian EVENSON Summary

Evenson ou l'ambassadeur du cauchemar nous offre un nouveau chef-d'oeuvre littéraire. Capable de l'humour le plus noir, plongeant ses personnages dans l'acide de situations extrêmes, Brian Evenson revient aujourd'hui avec ces textes forts et dérangeants, où l'absurde cache souvent une logique instable ou une terrible vérité. Qu'il s'agisse du cœur d'un bébé qui bat dans la poitrine de son ours en peluche, d'un homme qui perd son bras, ou de la puissance dévastatrice de la poussière sur une autre planète, ce sont, toujours, le corps humain et sa psyché fragile qu'Evenson explore, grâce à son écriture à la fois épurée et tranchante. Distillant le doute, jouant avec le suspense et l'incompréhension, il réussit à créer des ambiances aussi tangibles qu'irréelles, avec, en perpétuelle ligne de mire, la chute sans cesse recommencée de l'homme. Avec Evenson, le cauchemar a trouvé son ambassadeur. Ce que la presse a dit : " Une terrible puissance combinée à un humour ravageur. "Le Monde " Un univers dont on ressort sidéré mais admiratif. "L'Obs " Une œuvre obsédante et vertigineuse. "Télérama

Il y avait une fois... 'Un roi !' diront tout de suite mes petits lecteurs. 'Non, mes enfants, vous vous êtes trompés. Il y avait une fois un morceau de bois...' Ce n'était pas du bois de luxe, mais un morceau pris dans un vulgaire tas de petit bois, de ceux que, l'hiver, on met dans les poêles et les cheminées pour allumer le feu et réchauffer les appartements. Je ne sais pas comment ça arriva, mais le fait est qu'un beau jour ce morceau de bois se retrouva dans la boutique d'un vieux menuisier...

The House of Blue Leaves by John Guare Summary

Farce Characters: 4 male, 6 female Interior Set Artie Shaugnessy is a songwriter with visions of glory. Toiling by day as a zoo-keeper, he suffers in seedy lounges by night, plying his wares at piano bars in Queens, New York where he lives with his wife, Bananas. Who is. Much to the chagrin of Artie's downstairs mistress, Bunny Flingus who'll sleep with him anytime but refuses to cook until they are married. On the day the Pope is making his first visit to the city, Artie's son Ronny goes AWOL from Fort Dix stowing a home made-bomb intended to blow up the Pope in Yankee Stadium. Also arriving are Artie's old school chum, now a successful Hollywood producer, Billy Einhorn with starlet girlfriend in tow, who holds the key to Artie's dreams of getting out of Queens and away from the life he so despises. But like many dreams, this promise of glory evaporates amid the chaos of ordinary lives. Winner of the 1971 Critics Award and the Obie Award as Best American Play. "A brilliant play...beautifully fashioned...Wacky and sometimes sad [with]... combined hilarity, poignancy, outrageous stage aside and tragedy." -The New York Daily News "Enchantingly zany and original farce." -The New York Times

The Mourning After by Neil Edward Brooks,Josh Toth Summary

Have we moved beyond postmodernism? Did postmodernism lose its oppositional value when it became a cultural dominant? While focusing on questions such as these, the articles in this collection consider the possibility that the death of a certain version of postmodernism marks a renewed attempt to re-negotiate and perhaps re-embrace many of the cultural, literary and theoretical assumptions that postmodernism seemly denied outright. Including contributions from some of the leading scholars in the field – N. Katherine Hayles, John D. Caputo, Paul Maltby, Jane Flax, among others – this collection ultimately comes together to perform a certain work of mourning. Through their explorations of this current epistemological shift in narrative and theoretical production, these articles work to “get over” postmodernism while simultaneously celebrating a certain postmodern inheritance, an inheritance that can offer us important avenues to understanding and affecting contemporary culture and society.

Bleak House by Charles Dickens Summary

The law courts prevailing over the case of Jarndyce & Jarndyce are overwhelming in their pedantic, futile red-tape bureaucratic adherence to old principles and are partly based on Dickens' time as a young law clerk. With a massive cast of characters--many with ingeniously comic names--and his most complex plot, Bleak House is believed by many to be Dickens' greatest work.

Revolutionary Leaves by Sascha Pöhlmann Summary

Mark Z. Danielewski is routinely hailed as the most exciting author in contemporary American literature, and he is celebrated by critics and fans alike. Revolutionary Leaves collects essays that have come out of the first academic conference on Danielewski’s fiction that took place in Munich in 2011, which brought together younger and established scholars to discuss his works from a variety of perspectives. Addressing his major works House of Leaves (2000) and Only Revolutions (2006), the texts are as multifaceted as the novels they analyze, and they incorporate ideas of (post)structuralism, modernism, post- and post-postmodernism, philosophy, Marxism, reader-response criticism, mathematics and physics, politics, media studies, science fiction, gothic horror, poetic theory, history, architecture, mythology, and more. Contributors: Nathalie Aghoro, Ridvan Askin, Hanjo Berressem, Aleksandra Bida, Brianne Bilsky, Joe Bray, Alison Gibbons, Julius Greve, Sebastian Huber, Sascha Pöhlmann, and Hans-Peter Söder.
