Author of Motherless Brooklyn and The Fortress of Solitude, Jonathan Lethem is one of the most celebrated and significant American writers working today. This new scholarly study draws on a deep knowledge of all Lethem's work to explore the range of his writing, from his award-winning fiction to his work in comics and criticism. Reading Lethem in relation to five themes crucial to his work, Joseph Brooker considers influence and intertextuality; the role of genres such as crime, science fiction and the Western; the imaginative production of worlds; superheroes and comic book traditions; and the representation of New York City. Close readings of Lethem's fiction are contextualized by reference to broader conceptual and comparative frames, as well as to Lethem's own voluminous non-fictional writing and his adaptation of precursors from Franz Kafka to Raymond Chandler. Rich in critical insight, Jonathan Lethem and the Galaxy of Writing demonstrates how an understanding of this author illuminates contemporary literature and culture at large.

Ibn Battutah set out in 1325 from his native Tangier on the pilgrimage to Mecca. By the time he returned twenty-nine years later, he had visited most of the known world, travelling three times the distance Marco Polo covered. Spiritual backpacker, social climber, temporary hermit and failed ambassador, he braved brigands, blisters and his own prejudices. The outcome was a monumental travel classic. Captivated by this indefatigable man, award-winning travel writer Tim Mackintosh-Smith set out on his own eventful journey, retracing the Moroccan's eccentric trip from Tangier to Constantinople. Tim proves himself a perfect companion to this distant traveller, and the result is an amazing blend of personalities, history and contemporary observation.

Addison Blake is thoroughly convinced there is no gray area when it comes to luck - either you're born with it or you're not. She frequently notices the happy, fortunate people and wonders why she was not destined to be one of them. Orphaned after a tragic accident killed her parents, Addy is left with no one to raise her except two maiden aunts, both humorless and fanatically devout Catholics. A bright star in Addy's life is a spunky schoolmate, Helena, of whom the aunts completely disapprove because Helena's mother is divorced. By pulling their niece away from all that they perceive to be sinful and tainted, the aunts map out Addy's future as a dutiful wife to Lionel, a man they are convinced will make the perfect Catholic husband. Rather than finding peace and comfort in Catholicism, Addy silently rages at what she perceives to be a sadistic, unfair God, who has left us to our own devices and allows horrific suffering for some people. Highly intelligent and sensitive, Addy escapes from her grim reality into a rich world of fantasy, literature, art, and music. Her tendency to daydream often gets her into trouble, particularly with her verbally and physically abusive "perfect" husband. Little does the cruel, boorish Lionel know that he is the very reason Addy wants to escape. After moving away at a young age, Helena, the once "forbidden fruit" returns to town for her mother's funeral. Now, Helena is wealthy and well-known. Addy never dreams that Helena would want to associate with her, but Lionel has ulterior motives and forces Addy to foster the friendship. Astute and sophisticated, Helena sees right through the situation but secretly chooses to rekindle her friendship with Addy on her own terms while convincing Lionel he is the hero he wants to be. Helena and Addy are complete opposites, yet they are sisters of the heart. Each has an appreciation for the other's qualities. The brazen, worldly Helena can't bear to see her soul mate suffer at the hands of such a loutish husband and schemes to murder him. However, even the best laid plans often go awry. Not even Helena could foresee how deceit, decadence, and death would change their lives forever. About the Author Dr. Juliana Ormsby was born in New England into a large working-class immigrant family. While Juliana was growing up, opportunities for women were limited, particularly those from her socio-economic background. Juliana defied the odds and won a scholarship to a prestigious women's college. During her undergraduate years, the author came across people and things very different from her upbringing. To quench her thirst for wider knowledge, she went on to pursue advanced degrees as well as live and work in different cultures in many parts of the world. A good listener with a keen memory, Dr. Ormsby gathered stories wherever she went. Her first novel, "Addy's Redemption," is fictional but based upon the experiences of people Dr. Ormsby has encountered throughout her life's journey.

Travels Through American History In The Mid Atlantic

Winner of the Society for American Travel Writers’ Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism 2016 Gold Award in the Guidebook Category Few regions of the United States boast as many historically significant sites as the mid-Atlantic. Travels through American History in the Mid-Atlantic brings to life sixteen easily accessible historical destinations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington, D.C., the Potomac Valley, and Virginia. Charles W. Mitchell walked these sites, interviewed historians and rangers, and read the letters and diaries of the men and women who witnessed—and at times made—history. He reveals in vivid prose the ways in which war, terrain, weather, and illness have shaped the American narrative. Each attraction, reenactment, and interactive exhibit in the book is described through the lens of the American experience, beginning in the colonial and revolutionary eras, continuing through the War of 1812, and ending with the Civil War. Mitchell contrasts the ornate decor of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, for example, with the passionate debates that led to the Declaration of Independence, and the tranquil beauty of today’s Harpers Ferry with the trauma its citizens endured during the Civil War, when the town six times fell to opposing forces. Excerpts from eyewitness accounts further humanize key moments in the national story. Hand-drawn maps evoke the historical era by depicting the natural features that so often affected the course of events. This engaging blend of history and travel will appeal to visiting tourists, area residents seeking weekend diversions, history buffs, and armchair travelers.
