When the Henderson family takes in a mysterious teenager, they are happy to have a new addition to the family, but it soon becomes clear that Annie is no regular orphan . . . In the 1940s, Coden, Alabama was a hideaway for movie stars—an isolated playground tucked among live oaks and placid bay waters where pleasure and vice could be indulged. By the summer of 1974 Coden's glamour has faded, but it doesn't bother Mimi Bosarge, who is just happy to have a job as a live-in tutor with the wealthiest family in town, the Hendersons. When the Hendersons generously open their arms to Annie, a troubled teenager with no recollection of her past, Mimi's greatest concern is creating a curriculum for the family's new ward. But it soon becomes obvious that something is wrong. Annie seems suspiciously savvy for her young age, and Mimi can't quell the unnerving sense that there is something malicious about the waiflike beauty.

Het leven bestaat uit keuzes. Door één pad te kiezen, sluit je het andere af. Maar wat als dat nu eens niet zo is? Wat als je in een andere werkelijkheid dat andere pad volgt. Wat als je spijt krijgt van je keuzen? 'Ben je gelukkig met je leven?' Dat zijn de laatste woorden die Jason Desson hoort vóórdat de gemaskerde ontvoerder hem bewusteloos slaat. En voordat hij wakker wordt en merkt dat hij vastgeketend is aan een ziekenhuisbed, omgeven door mensen die hij niet kent, die gekleed zijn in beschermende pakken en een man die Jason nog nooit heeft gezien naar hem glimlacht en zegt: 'Welkom terug, vriend.' IN de wereld waarin Jason Wakker is geworden is niets zoals hij gewend is. Zijn vrouw is niet zijn vrouw. Zijn zoon is nooit geboren. Jason zelf is geen doorneeprofessor in natuurkunde. Is déze wereld of de wereld waar hij vandaan komt een droom? En zelfs als de wereld die hij zich herinnert echt is, hoe kan hij die dan ooit weer terugvinden? De antwoorden liggen in een reis die wonderlijker en afschuwelijker is dan alles wat hij zich ooit had kunnen voorstellen. Een reis die hem dwingt naar de donkerste krochten van zijn ziel te kijken, terwijl hij het moet opnemen tegen een angstaanjagende, nagenoeg onverslaanbare vijand.

Colonial and Postcolonial Rewritings of "Heart of Darkness"

Joseph Conrad's novella "Heart of Darkness" (1899) is taught and read all over the world. Everywhere, novelists and travel writers respond to it in their own creative work. I discuss 30 responses, or rewritings, from Africa, India, the Caribbean, Australia, Europe and the US. Their perspectives include those of groups who identify with Conrad's Europeans and groups who feel close to his Africans, and increasingly those of groups who situate themselves between these two extremes in various ways. I identify world-wide developments as well as themes, strategies and paradigm shifts that correlate with different geopolitical situations. Rewriters address the contribution Conrad has made to the identities of his very different readers, and the patterns he has suggested for encounters. In ever more intense dialogues, people from all backgrounds work through images of themselves and of each other. However, like Conrad's narrator, they also become aware of limits of language and communication. Rewriters act as rereaders of the many layers of meaning in "Heart of Darkness," and thus imply that the reader's experience is as important as the author's. This approach is increasingly developing into a use of discourse-analytical methods in non-theoretical texts. Rewritings can bring "Heart of Darkness" close to the readers' lives. Rewriters champion processes of highly personal learning and unlearning as well as political and social approaches, and can thus help readers rework their own cultural backgrounds. Accordingly, I both use close-reading methods and take into account political and didactic intentions. In conclusion, I recommend reading "Heart of Darkness" together with one or more of its rewritings, and outline some ideas for teaching such combinations. After comprehensive introductions to "Heart of Darkness" and to the theory of rewritings, I discuss works by the following authors in a convenient handbook format: Ford Madox Ford (Hueffer), Leonard Woolf, W. Somerset Maugham, Andre Gide, Louis-Ferdinand Celine, Graham Greene, Charlotte Jay, Patrick White, Chinua Achebe, Wilson Harris, Ngugi wa Thiong'o, Tayeb Salih, Arun Joshi, J.M. Coetzee, V.S. Naipaul, Robert Silverberg, Caryl Phillips, David Dabydeen, Marlene NourbeSe Philip, David Malouf, Mineke Schipper, Abdulrazak Gurnah, Urs Widmer, Redmond O'Hanlon, Arundhati Roy, Barbara Kingsolver and Jeffrey Tayler.

Once a lost and confused princess, Serafina is now a confident leader of the Black Fin Resistance (BFR). While she works on sabotaging her enemy and enlisting allies for battle, her friends face challenges of their own. Ling is in the hold of Rafe Mfeme's giant trawler, on her way to a prison camp. Becca meets up with Astrid and learns why the Ondalinian mermaid is always so angry: she is hiding a shameful secret. Ava can't return home, because death riders await her arrival. And it is getting more and more difficult for Mahdi, Serafina's betrothed, to keep up the ruse that he is in love with Lucia Volerno. If Lucia's parents become suspicious, his life--and all of Sera's hopes--will be extinguished. Political intrigue, dangerous liaisons, and spine-tingling suspense swirl like a maelstrom in this penultimate book in the WaterFire saga.

ISBN: 1476619603

In post-9/11 America, while all eyes were on Iraq and Afghanistan, The Wire (2002-2008) focused on the dark realities of those living in America's disintegrating industrial heartlands and drug-ravaged neighborhoods, striving against the odds in its schools, hospitals and legal system. With compelling story lines and a memorable cast of characters, The Wire has been compared to the work of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, with a level of detail rarely seen in a dramatic series. While the show garnered critical praise and a loyal following, a discussion of its political aspects--in particular Bush-era America--is overdue. This collection of new essays examines The Wire in terms of the War on Drugs, the racial and economic division of America's cities, the surveillance state and the meaning of citizenship.

MURDER AND HORROR IN THE HAUNTED JERSEY PINE BARRENS SEND A YOUNG SCHOLAR ON A DEADLY QUEST TO DISCOVER AN UGLY TRUTH. Archaeology Professor Rebecca Glass is murdered hours before delivering a paper proving that a fire that killed eight Cloistered nuns in the nearly uninhabited New Jersey Pine Barrens was purposely set.

Excellent fiction.”-John Vance, author of Awake the Southern Wind, (forthcoming), Echoes of November, Death by Mournful Numbers, and Convergences. “Mr. Luce expertly explores greed, arrogance, and family dynamics - and pathologies - using exciting storytelling as his vehicle. A gem.”-Dr. Pat Pope, Clinical Psychologist. What connection does the brutal murder of Rebecca Glass, an archaeologist from Mount St. Benedict University have with a fire decades ago that killed a dozen nuns in the remote New Jersey Pine Barrens? Dominic Rossi a young English professor at the university who shared an office with the dead woman is surprised when the college provost concerned about the reputation of the college asks him to investigate the murder. Rossi quickly learns no one is quite who or what they seem to be as he navigates a web of deceit and danger to find the answer. Before he finishes the investigation, he suddenly realizes the truth has put his own life in jeopardy. The characters are engaging, the dialogue flows and the action moves. Hank Luce has crafted a complex, well-written mystery with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing and turning the pages.-Preston Holtry, author of the Morgan Westphal mystery series.

In a newly enlarged edition of this eye-opening book, David T. Courtwright offers an original interpretation of a puzzling chapter in American social and medical history: the dramatic change in the pattern of opiate addiction--from respectable upper-class matrons to lower-class urban males, often with a criminal record. Challenging the prevailing view that the shift resulted from harsh new laws, Courtwright shows that the crucial role was played by the medical rather than the legal profession. "Dark Paradise" tells the story not only from the standpoint of legal and medical sources, but also from the perspective of addicts themselves. With the addition of a new introduction and two new chapters on heroin addiction and treatment since 1940, Courtwright has updated this compelling work of social history for the present crisis of the Drug War.
