The Sorrows of Young Mike by John Zelazny Summary

Thoughtful yet spontaneous, self-aggrandizing and hopelessly philosophical, Mike would like to find out if the earth really is round. During his four-month voyage around the planet, Mike's past loves, current romances and vision of himself are on a collision course. His mind becomes increasingly abstract as he navigates the continents and struggles with morality in a dream world of his own making, a universe where spring break happens weekly at a dart's throw on a world map. Mike's story is told through his journal which is interlaced with various documents - essays, instant message conversations and an email. These documents tell a story that parodies Goethe, in both his behavior as a writer and his apparent views on love, nature and the world. These views were described in Goethe's seventeenth-century novel, The Sorrows of Young Werther.

Les Lois de l'attraction by Bret EASTON ELLIS Summary

" L'auteur de Moins que zéro décrit dans son deuxième livre une nouvelle descente aux enfers qui se situe à l'université. Ses héros, des étudiants issus d'une bourgeoisie typée, trempent, d'une dérive à l'autre, dans les illusions du sexe et de la drogue, sur un fond de rock... Bret Easton Ellis peint une génération en négatif, en montrant les impasses des désirs, des urgences existentielles et des manques. Tout cela au moyen d'une écriture sobre, rapide et brute. La phraséologie de cette décennie contient à elle seule toute une micro-histoire. Une langue. " Patrick Amine, Art Press. "La jeunesse occidentale s'ennuie, les happy few s'assomment au champagne, tout le monde débande, sauf le lecteur qui prend un pied monumental." Elle

No Hamlets by Andreas Höfele Summary

No Hamlets is the first critical account of the role of Shakespeare in the intellectual tradition of the political right in Germany from the founding of the Empire in 1871 to the 'Bonn Republic' of the Cold War era. In this sustained study, Andreas Höfele begins with Friedrich Nietzsche and follows the rightist engagement with Shakespeare to the poet Stefan George and his circle, including Ernst Kantorowicz, and the literary efforts of the young Joseph Goebbels during the Weimar Republic, continuing with the Shakespeare debate in the Third Reich and its aftermath in the controversy over 'inner emigration' and concluding with Carl Schmitt's Shakespeare writings of the 1950s. Central to this enquiry is the identification of Germany and, more specifically, German intellectuals with Hamlet. The special relationship of Germany with Shakespeare found highly personal and at the same time highIy political expression in this recurring identification, and in its denial. But Hamlet is not the only Shakespearean character with strong appeal: Carl Schmitt's largely still unpublished diaries of the 1920s reveal an obsessive engagement with Othello which has never before been examined. Interest in German philosophy and political thought has increased in recent Shakespeare studies. No Hamlets brings historical depth to this international discussion. Illuminating the constellations that shaped and were shaped by specific appropriations of Shakespeare, Höfele shows how individual engagements with Shakespeare and a whole strand of Shakespeare reception were embedded in German history from the 1870s to the 1950s and eventually 1989, the year of German reunification.

Synge: Complete Plays by John Millington Synge Summary

A re-issue of the collected plays by one of Ireland's most celebrated writers In The Shadow of the Glen an old man tests his wife's commitment by feigning death; Riders to the Sea is inspired by Synge's stay on the Aran Islands and shadows the death of a way of life as a mother sees her sons die before her eyes; The Tinker's Wedding is about a woman's desire for marriage to her tinker husband and is full of Synge's fascination for the tinker breed who had freed themselves from govenment and conventions while giving way to instincts of sexual promsicuity, fighting and drinking; The Well of Saints is set near a holy well known for its cures of blindness and epilepsy and centres on the figure of Martin Doul, who is blind and has two illusions - the first, that he and his wife Mary are a handsome couple and the second, that the visible world is full of wonder and delight; The Playboy of the Western World, in which a young man lies about the death of his father offended audiences when first produced in 1907 on account of its 'immodest' references to Irish womanhood and aroused a prolonged and bitter controversy, which lasted until the author's death in 1909; Deirdre of the Sorrows is Synge's last play, published posthumously and tells the story of a young and beautiful girl, destined to be the bride of an ageing king who elopes with a younger man and after the magical seven years returns only to bring with her the destruction of a city.

Shelter by Jill Stephenson Summary

With a girl like Lucy Tanner on his arm, Mike Giannichi could show the world he was back. He could settle old scores and establish new ground. An uncontestable display of his prowess could be the sweetest revenge of all. While for Lucy Tanner, a would-be actress, the future could be assured with a guy like Mike Giannichi opening doors and calling the shots. With his connections, Lucy could finally claim the success she deserved. Her brother, Shay, could be cared for in the manner his increasingly fragile state of mind required. Shay, with his quest to unravel the empires of the rich and powerful, could acquire the access he coveted by surrendering his secrets to Mike Giannichi. Each had something to gain. All they had to do was take a leap of faith. Yet as the three lives merge, ambitions turn ugly and dreams change to nightmares. What begins as an alliance becomes a desperate dependence on circumstances no one can abandon, much less control. “Shelter” speaks to the desire in all of us to find one safe haven amid the pain and confusion of an uncertain world.

An Author Index to Little Magazines of the Mimeograph Revolution, 1958-1980 by Christopher Harter Summary

An Author Index to Little Magazines of the Mimeograph Revolution references approximately 100 literary magazine (or "little magazine") titles published between 1959 and 1980, aiding researchers in finding approximately 20,000 works by more than 500 individual writers and poets. Christopher Harter focuses on a select but important subgenre of little magazines that originated during the "Mimeograph Revolution." This era is significant in the history of twentieth-century American literary magazines because the decreased cost of production resulted in a tremendous increase in the number of such magazines. The period is also noteworthy in that the "mimeos" differed from the reviews of earlier decades because of the lack of cohesion around a particular school of writers and an opposition to the increasingly corporate nature of mainstream publishing in the late twentieth century. For students and scholars of contemporary writing, this index is an excellent resource for locating and tracing the publication of individual works by authors and poets.

The Edge of Panic by Marilyn Edwards Summary

Dawn strolled over to another wall where a large, framed, penciled drawing presented a grinning skull, a transparent round pipe with smoke curling from it, and a horned skull with hollow eyes that appeared to be laughing at her, like the phantom of her nightmare. Devoid of color, gray and white swirls of smoke depicted illusionary demons-there were demons in the smoke. The artwork, a little on the dark side, seemed almost symbolic. She remembered a time, not so very long ago, when Preston City was the safest place to live. Then drugs became more than a troubling issue. Van Morrison and Bob Kaley invaded their town and death walked stealthily through the halls of their school, out onto their quiet streets. They had arrived in town at about the same time last year, a simple coincidence? Van Morrison, a drug pusher on the south side, Bob Kaley, a respected teacher in her school. It seemed unlikely the two would have any connection. Still, she had her suspicions. Dawn wondered if it was her imagination working overtime linking a social studies teacher to disreputable drug pusher.

The Tilian Cure by Tom Calen Summary

Seven years ago, the Tilian Virus swept across the globe. In its wake, billions fell horribly ill…but they did not die. Death would have been a blessing. Instead, friends and loved ones regressed to a primitive state of existence; consumed with one driving instinct—survival. But it was not just the virus’ victims who had changed. The world’s few remaining survivors were forced to adapt as well. Teachers and students, farmers and politicians began their own struggle to survive in a world unmade. However, they quickly learned that the outbreak of the virus was only the beginning. Its lasting effects were even more merciless. Now comes the survivors’ last stand. Some forces divide, while others band together. Enemies, human and Til alike, surrounded them from all sides. Can the weary summon their last vestiges of strength and hold against the approaching tide of death? Or can a cure be found in time? If so, what form might it take? What scars might it leave? For, as the old saying goes, the cure is often worse than the disease.
