- See more at: grief-stricken mans obsession with the mysterious life of a silent film star takes him on a strange and intense journey into a shadow-world of lies, illusions and unexpected love . . .Six months after losing his wife and two young sons in a plane crash, Vermont professor David Zimmer spends his waking hours mired in a blur of alcoholic grief and self-pity. Then, watching television one night, he stumbles upon a lost film by Hector Mann, and finds himself enraptured. Mann was a comic genius of the silent cinema, his trademark a fluttering black moustache. One January morning in 1929, at the height of his fame, he walked out of his house and was never heard from again.Zimmers fascination with Manns work leads him to write an appreciative book. Then out of nowhere comes a letter from New Mexico, supposedly written by Manns wife. Could Hector Mann be still alive? Zimmer is torn between doubt and belief, until a strange woman appears on his doorstep one night and makes the decision for him, changing his life for ever.Written with breathtaking urgency and precision, this stunning novel plunges the reader into a universe in which the comic and the tragic, the real and the imagined, the violent and the tender, dissolve into one another. The Book of Illusions is Paul Austers richest, most emotionally charged novel yet.The Book of Illusions is, in the words of Peter Carey, “suffused with warmth and illuminated by its narrator’s hard won wisdom. This artful and elegant novel may be Auster’s best ever.”

Migrant Imaginaries: Figures in Italian Migration Literature

  10/02/2012       maksim-x      0 Comments

This book addresses a rich corpus of contemporary narratives by authors who have come to Italy as migrants. It traces the figurative commonalities that emerge across these diverse texts, which together suggest the shape and substance of what might be termed migrant imaginaries . Examining five central figures and concepts - identity, memory, home, place and space, and literature - across a range of novels and stories by writers of African and Middle Eastern origin, the study elucidates the affective and expressive processes that inflect migrant story-telling. Drawing on the work of cultural theorists such as Sara Ahmed and Michel de Certeau, as well as on recent work in postcolonial literary studies, memory studies, human geography and feminist theory, the book probes the varied works of Shirin Ramzanali Fazel, Amara Lakhous, Mohsen Melliti, Younis Tawfik and many others. Each chapter posits alternative interpretations of the ways in which the interior experience of encounters across territories, cultures and languages is figured in this literature. In doing so, the book moves towards a wider apprehension of recent Italian migration narratives as suggestions of what a new notion of contemporary Italian literature might look like, figured at once within and beyond the boundaries of a national literature, a national language and a national cultural imaginary.

Kirschblütenherzen(Paradise Point #2)

Chances Are. Barbara Bretton. 2004. Berkley. 371 pages.Barbara Bretton is my favorite contemporary romance author. Her books are always guaranteed to please when a realistic romance and pick-me-up is needed. Chances Are was no exception, and once again, I am disappointed in myself in letting this book sit on my shelf for years before reading it!Chances Are is centered around a group of women in a small Jersey shore-town called Paradise Point. The women consist of Maddy, a woman about to be married; her entrepreneur mother Rose; Claire, a widow and mother of five; and Kelly, Maddys teenage soon-to-be stepdaughter. While the town focuses attention on Maddy and her wedding, Claire stands by jealous on the sidelines at Maddys good fortune, while responsible Kelly suspects she may be pregnant. As opposed to most romance novels, Chances Are is unique because the romantic relationships are already established for the most part, and we are entertained by how these women keep themselves together in times of turmoil. While readers are presented with tastes of romanticism, the novel is not your classic win the man over and experience drama while doing it.Brettons novels are great for all types of readers because they are not stereotypical in the romance genre. Brettons novels give enjoyment and renewed hope for love to readers that may be overweight, widowed, divorced, sloppy, down-and-out, or past their prime in life. Being a divorced, single mother myself, I can always count on Bretton to pick me up and provide me with an awesome, fun read!
