Explanation of the Book:

There was a time I would not have lit a fire, if there wasn’t a man at home to tend to it. That worry wore off long ago, out of need. —Capanna One friend and then another commits suicide. Her partner has a heart attack. She comes face-to-face with a wolf in the wild. Her rescue dog bites her in the face. Her past intrudes in ways it can’t be changed. Life is messy, and what, really, do any of us know about how to live it? Nearly Fifty is a collection of essays, written in real time, through which Paloma A. Capanna explores how she tried to make thoughtful decisions in the midst of chaos in order to keep moving forward in the pulse of her life. It is the story of everyone who faces decisions that can only be made based upon the available information at the time and the bits of wisdom collected over time. Even when there is no perfect solution, she illustrates the importance of making a choice with which one can go on living. “In Paloma’s questions lives wisdom. In her answers, wonder and compassion. This is a beautiful, honest, direct book. Open it and you will find yourself in a company of someone who is brave to live in the open.” – Ilya Kaminsky, Poet, author of Dancing in Odessa, Musica Humana, and Deaf Nation, winner of the Pushcart Prize “If you are looking for insight into a life well-lived, then you have come to the right place. Paloma brings you into her world with her eloquent speech and does not let you linger lest you might be bored. You don’t want to miss out on any of her grand tidbits.” – Larry Jaffe, Poet, author of Lying Half-Naked in the Doorway, founder of Poets Beyond Borders, and International Readings Coordinator for the United Nations “Dialogue Through Poetry Week”

Naked Lunch   50
Author: Professor Oliver Harris,Oliver C. G. Harris,Ian MacFadyen
Pages: 283
ISBN: 0809329158
Available:
Release: 2009
Editor: SIU Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Naked Lunch was banned, castigated, and recognized as a work of genius on its first publication in 1959, and fifty years later it has lost nothing of its power to astonish, shock, and inspire. A lacerating satire, an exorcism of demons, a grotesque cabinet of horrors, it is the Black Book of the Beat Generation, the forerunner of the psychedelic counterculture, and a progenitor of postmodernism and the digital age. A work of excoriating laughter, linguistic derangement, and transcendent beauty, it remains both influential and inimitable. This is the first book devoted in its entirety to William Burroughs’ masterpiece, bringing together an international array of scholars, artists, musicians, and academics from many fields to explore the origins, writing, reception, and complex meanings of Naked Lunch. Tracking the legendary book from Texas and Mexico to New York, Tangier, and Paris, Naked Lunch@50 significantly advances our understanding and appreciation of this most elusive and uncanny of texts.

Explanation of the Book:

From the students at the Yale Daily News, a book that highlights the essays that got students into Yale University, helping high school seniors get into the school of their choice The competition to get into a top-tier school becomes more and more fierce every year.

Madeleine Bender, a New York City native, is a "jack of all trades" who writes for the Daily News, plays clarinet for a concert band, and majors in both Classics and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. These profiles set this book apart from other college essay books, reminding students that in order to write a strong essay, you must be yourself and understand how the university you're applying to will help you make your greatest dreams into a reality.

After the End of History

After the End of History
Author: Samuel Cohen
Pages: 248
ISBN: 9781587298905
Available:
Release: 2009-10-01
Editor: University of Iowa Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

In this bold book, Samuel Cohen asserts the literary and historical importance of the period between the fall of the Berlin wall and that of the Twin Towers in New York. With refreshing clarity, he examines six 1990s novels and two post-9/11 novels that explore the impact of the end of the Cold War: Pynchon's Mason & Dixon, Roth's American Pastoral, Morrison's Paradise, O'Brien's In the Lake of the Woods, Didion's The Last Thing He Wanted, Eugenides's Middlesex, Lethem's Fortress of Solitude, and DeLillo's Underworld. Cohen emphasizes how these works reconnect the past to a present that is ironically keen on denying that connection. Exploring the ways ideas about paradise and pastoral, difference and exclusion, innocence and righteousness, triumph and trauma deform the stories Americans tell themselves about their nation’s past, After the End of History challenges us to reconsider these works in a new light, offering fresh, insightful readings of what are destined to be classic works of literature. At the same time, Cohen enters into the theoretical discussion about postmodern historical understanding. Throwing his hat in the ring with force and style, he confronts not only Francis Fukuyama’s triumphalist response to the fall of the Soviet Union but also the other literary and political “end of history” claims put forth by such theorists as Fredric Jameson and Walter Benn Michaels. In a straightforward, affecting style, After the End of History offers us a new vision for the capabilities and confines of contemporary fiction.
