Book excerpt: Judy Doenges's brilliant first novel is the deeply affecting story of Robin Simonsen, a girl growing up in the 1960s and 70s on the wrong side of a Chicago suburb. After the death of her young mother, Robin is left with her kind but irresponsible father-a junkman turned drug dealer-and her grandmother, a retired Vegas showgirl, both of whom draw local fixers and ex-cons into the Simonsens' increasingly shady home. Bright, wise, and observant, Robin is the quiet outsider to her hedonistic family, struggling to come to terms with her ardent love for girls. Trapped in a house scarily alive with a rogues gallery of hapless and often hilarious crooks, misfits, and hangers-on, Robin must look elsewhere for stability, befriending the son of the neighborhood's only African American family-a boy whose unimpeachable manners and flawless grades mask his own sexuality-while falling in love with the high school beauty. Wry, edgy, and smart, The Most Beautiful Girl in the World offers a new kind of young heroine, one who stands fearlessly at the precipice of her family and her town's self-destruction, defiantly fighting to save herself.

Summary Book Review Alvimar, the story of a woman by Dario Tesser:
Download or read book Alvimar, the story of a woman written by Dario Tesser and published by Babelcube Inc.. This book was released on 2016-09-19 with total page 83 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Alvimar by Dario Tesser The story of an ordinary girl who becomes an entrepreneur We meet the protagonist when she is fifteen, while going to the city for the first time. We follow her in her search for fulfillment through the work outside the family, beyond the usual expectations of a girl at the time when to be something different than a mother was difficult, if not impossible. We live through her tragedies, suffering and her love of life that is essentially accurately tied to historical facts and events that help emphasize a very well focused framework. The novel tells the story of a woman caught up in the full years of her life. It is, mostly, a tale of love even if there are many ways you can interpret the story while reading the book. But it is not, though, only Alvimar's love story, it is also answers questions: What was the economic situation in the period between the two World Wars in a small town in northern Italy? In what way and by how much were ordinary people involved in fascism and partisan affairs? The novel provides some of these answers, of course partially since it tells only what the characters of the book know; although they are original answers, outside the stereotype, which maintains Italy was monolithically and consciously anti-fascist from the start.

Download or read book Nanda's Neelkanth written by Chandra Prakash Kala and published by Partridge Publishing. This book was released on 2015-03-11 with total page 340 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Being blessed to wander in some of the most fascinating hills and valleys of nature, I have been endeavoring for long to put these stories together. I offer here the elements that appeal most to me during my wanderings in the jungles, meadows, villages and towns, especially in the abode of gods and goddesses the Himalaya. I pick up one of the tales as a title of the book 'Nanda's Neelkanth'. Neelkanth is one of the several names of the Lord Shiva, the Hindu god. Many snow-clad peaks of the Himalaya are named after the gods and goddesses and Neelkanth is one of the most magnificent peaks. It attracts every human soul not only to its brilliant hues and majestic snowy peak but Neelkanth, as the Mahadev, also remains the source of spirituality for billions. Likewise, His consort, Nanda who is adorned with innumerable names including the Gaura, has been venerated in the form of beautiful mountains of the Himalaya. The quiet and unquiet woods, the elusive and elegant wildlife, the people and their culture and their struggle for living are the other elements in this bouquet of experiences.

Summary Book Review Fairy Tales with a Black Consciousness by Vivian Yenika-Agbaw:
Download or read book Fairy Tales with a Black Consciousness written by Vivian Yenika-Agbaw and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2013-06-19 with total page 245 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The all new essays in this book discuss black cultural retellings of traditional, European fairy tales. The representation of black protagonists in such tales helps to shape children's ideas about themselves and the world beyond--which can ignite a will to read books representing diverse characters. The need for a multicultural text set which includes the multiplicity of cultures within the black diaspora is discussed. The tales referenced in the text are rich in perspective: they are Aesop's fables, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Ananse. Readers will see that stories from black perspectives adhere to the dictates of traditional literary conventions while still steeped in literary traditions traceable to Africa or the diaspora.

Summary Book Review Empathy and the Novel by Suzanne Keen:
Download or read book Empathy and the Novel written by Suzanne Keen and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2007-04-19 with total page 274 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Does empathy felt while reading fiction actually cultivate a sense of connection, leading to altruistic actions on behalf of real others? Empathy and the Novel presents a comprehensive account of the relationships among novel reading, empathy, and altruism. Drawing on psychology, narrative theory, neuroscience, literary history, philosophy, and recent scholarship in discourse processing, Keen brings together resources and challenges for the literary study of empathy and the psychological study of fiction reading. Empathy robustly enters into affective responses to fiction, yet its role in shaping the behavior of emotional readers has been debated for three centuries. Keen surveys these debates and illustrates the techniques that invite empathetic response. She argues that the perception of fictiveness increases the likelihood of readers' empathy in part by releasing them from the guarded responses necessitated by the demands of real others. Narrative empathy is a strategy and subject of contemporary novelists from around the world, writers who tacitly endorse the potential universality of human emotions when they call upon their readers' empathy. If narrative empathy is to be taken seriously, Keen suggests, then women's reading and responses to popular fiction occupy a central position in literary inquiry, and cognitive literary studies should extend its range beyond canonical novels. In short, Keen's study extends the playing field for literature practitioners, causing it to resemble more closely that wide open landscape inhabited by readers.
