This twisting tale, the sequel to the author’s Ring Around the Sun, takes Coot Boldt and Narlow Montgomery back to their childhood in the wilds of the Tularosa Basin of southern New Mexico Territory and west Texas. The story tracks their days tending Papa’s goats, and Narlow’s war with his copper-lined, half-Pale Eye-half-Comanche mama. The boys lived with the Apaches for two years where Narlow studied the mysteries of the medicineman. As young men, they enjoyed successes in ranching and land sales in El Paso, a dusty adobe village known for whiskey, shot-dead men on its streets, soiled doves, and rigged roulette wheels. Both their marriages went sour, and though Coot went on, Narlow was stuck with a wife who never allowed the consummation of their vows. All those months Narlow brushed off Coot’s advice to take up with a widow-lady, but during a trip to San Francisco, he fell into the clutches of a wealthy actress who demanded that he return home and divorce his wife. He refused, though he did return to El Paso and become the town drunk. Finally, he was convinced by his father and Coot to seek the solitude of a cave where, as a child, he had played with his father, a man who made sawhorses with straw-stuffed sock heads, eyes drawn with charcoal, and read the great books to his son. Narlow won his battle over the bottle. Includes Readers Guide.

When Laura Munson's essay was first published, the New York Times was so flooded with responses that they had to close down the comment feature on their website. Readers sent it to their friends and therapists gave it to their clients. What did Munson write that caused such a fervour? Laura detailed what happened when her husband of more than twenty years told her he wasn't sure he loved her anymore and wanted to move out. Laura's response to her husband: I don't buy it. In this poignant and funny memoir, Laura recounts the time her faith in her marriage was put to the test. Shaken to the core after the death of her beloved father, not finding the professional success that she had hoped for, and after much therapy, Laura, aged forty, realised she had to stop basing her happiness on things outside her control and commit to an 'End of Suffering'.

Consciousness And The Novel

Human consciousness, long the province of literature, has lately come in for a remapping - even rediscovery - by the natural sciences, driven by developments in Artificial Intelligence, neuroscience, and evolutionary biology. But as the richest record we have of human consciousness, literature, David Lodge suggests, may offer a kind of knowledge about this phenomenon that is complementary, not opposed, to scientific knowledge. Writing with characteristic wit and brio, and employing the insight and acumen of a skilled novelist and critic, Lodge here explores the representation of human consciousness in fiction (mainly English and American) in the light of recent investigations in cognitive science, neuroscience, and related disciplines. How, Lodge asks, does the novel represent consciousness? And how has this changed over time? In a series of interconnected essays, he pursues this question down various paths: how does the novel's method compare with that of other creative media such as film? How does the consciousness (and unconscious) of the creative writer do its work? And how can criticism infer the nature of this process through formal analysis? In essays on Charles Dickens, E.M. Forster, Evelyn Waugh, Kingsley and Martin Amis, Henry James, John Updike and Philip Roth, and in reflections on his own practice as a novelist, Lodge brings to light - and to engaging life

"Through thoughtful analysis of girls' historical literacy experiences, their contemporary reading and writing lives, and trends in young adult literature, this book sheds new light on how teachers can better understand and create classroom experiences that make girls visible both to themselves and to others.Historically, the status of girls has evoked much less research than that of boys. Recently emerging scholastic and strategic study concerning the vulnerability of girls is adding a vital missing component to this continually emerging discourse. Looking at many aspects of girls' gendered lives, this text considers the specific perspectives of the social and cultural constructions that script gender, particularly as applies to girls in our classrooms. Prominent scholars in their respective fields examine the myriad forces that shape the lives of American girls, from the earliest didactic records of manuals and books of conduct to current artifacts of contemporary culture. By investigating both the scholarly literature on girls as well as well as the primary sources of a material culture, the authors seek to unravel how adolescent girls learn and seek to compose identities. By closely examining girls' practices, in which are embedded issues of class, race, ethnicity, immigrant status, and sexuality, the text considers some of the values, structures, and trajectories that have come to define teenage girlhood. Its distinctive contribution is to unpack some of the assumptions of girls in English classrooms and to critically examine their experiences as they try to fit preconceived norms while forming their own personhood"-- Provided by publisher.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER By the time psychologist Dr. Alex Delaware reached the school the damage was done: A sniper had opened fire on a crowded playground, but was gunned down before any children were hurt. “Virtually impossible to put aside until the final horrifying showdown.”—People While the TV news crews feasted on the scene and Alex began his therapy sessions with the traumatized children, he couldn’t escape the image of a slight teenager clutching an oversized rifle. What was the identity behind the name and face: a would-be assassin, or just another victim beneath an indifferent California sky? Intrigued by a request from the sniper’s father to conduct a “psychological autopsy” of his child, Alex begins to uncover a strange pattern—it is a trail of blood. In the dead sniper’s past was a dark and vicious plot. And in Alex Delaware’s future is the stuff of grown-up nightmares: the face of real human evil.

In this hilarious and wonderfully eccentric novel Philip Roth turns his attention to one of the most beloved of all American rituals: baseball. Players, tycoons and the paying public are all targets as Roth satirises the dense tapestry of myths and legends that have grown up around The Great American Pastime.

Offering a radical reading of 'Don Quijote', this work argues that it is much greater than the sum of its famous parts, discovering a unified narrative and deliberate thematic design in a novel long taught as the very definition of the picaresque and as a rambling succession of individual episodes.
