Title : Jane
Author : Maggie Nelson
Total pages: 200 pages
Jane tells the spectral story of the life and death of Maggie Nelson s aunt Jane, who was murdered in 1969 while a first-year law student at the University of Michigan. Though officially unsolved, Jane s murder was apparently the third in a series of seven brutal rape-murders in the area between 1967 and 1969. Nelson was born a few years after Jane s death, and the narrative is suffused with the long shadow her murder cast over both the family and her psyche. Jane explores the nature of this haunting incident via a collage of poetry, prose, dream-accounts, and documentary sources, including local and national newspapers, related true crime books such as The Michigan Murders and Killer Among Us, and fragments from Jane s own diaries written when she was 13 and 21. Its eight sections cover Jane s childhood and early adulthood, her murder and its investigation, the direct and diffuse effect of her death on Nelson s girlhood and sisterhood, and a trip to Michigan Nelson took with her mother (Jane s sister) to retrace the path of Jane s final hours. Each piece in Jane has its own form, and the movement from each piece to the nextalong with the white space that surrounds each fragmentserve as important fissures, disrupting the tabloid, page-turner quality of the story, and eventually returning the reader to deeper questions about girlhood, empathy, identification, and the essentially unknowable aspects of another s life and death. Part elegy, part memoir, detective story, part meditation on violence (and serial, sexual violence in particular), and part conversation between the living and the dead, Jane s powerful and disturbing subject matter, combined with its innovations in genre, expands the notion of what poetry can dowhat kind of stories it can tell, and how it can tell them.

Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever.
Title : Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever.
Author : Caissie St. Onge
Total pages: 240 pages
For Jane Jones, being a vampire is nothing like you read about in books. In fact, it kind of sucks. She's not beautiful, she's not rich, and she doesn't "sparkle." She's just an average, slightly nerdy girl from an ordinary suburban family (who happens to be vampires.) Jane's from the wrong side of the tracks (not to mention stuck in the world's longest awkward phase), so she doesn't fit in with the cool vampire kids at school or with the humans kids. To top it all off, she's battling an overprotective mom, a clique of high school mean girls (the kind who really do have fangs), and the most embarrassing allergy in the history of the undead, she's blood intolerant. So no one's more surprised than Jane when for the first time in her life, things start to heat up (as much as they can for a walking corpse, anyway) with not one, but two boys. Eli's a geeky, but cute real-live boy in her history class, and Timothy is a beautiful, brooding bloodsucker, who might just hold the key to a possible "cure" for vampirism. Facing an eternity of high school pressure, fumbling first dates, or a mere lifetime together with Timothy, what's a 90-something year-old teen vampire to do? Fans of the Vladmir Tod Chronicles, You are So Undead to Me, and Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side will feast on this deliciously readable, smart, and fantastically funny debut. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Jane Austen is without question, one of England's most enduring and skilled novelists. With her wit, social precision, and unerring ability to create some of literature's most charismatic and believable heroines, she mesmerises her readers as much today as when her novels were first published. Whether it is her sharp, ironic gaze at the Gothic genre invoked by the adventures of Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey; the diffident and much put-upon Fanny Price struggling to cope with her emotions in Mansfield Park; her delightfully paced comedy of manners and the machinations of the sisters Elinor and Marianne in Sense and Sensibility; the quiet strength of Anne Elliot in Persuasion succeeding in a world designed to subjugate her very existence; and Emma - 'a heroine whom no one but myself will like' teased Austen - yet another irresistible character on fire with imagination and foresight. Indeed not unlike her renowned creator. Jane Austen is as sure-footed in her steps through society's whirlpools of convention and prosaic mores as she is in her sometimes restrained but ever precise and enduring prose.

The Complete Novels of Jane Austen brings together the indelible characters, picturesque locations, and masterful storytelling of Jane Austen, one of the most beloved and celebrated authors of all time. This special ebook edition includes all of Austen's published works: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Love and Friendship and Other Early Works, Lady Susan, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion. These novel contain some of the most brilliant, dazzling prose in the English language. In a publishing career that spanned less than a decade, Jane Austen used the romantic endeavours of her well-plotted characters as a stage from which to address issues of gender politics and class-consciousness rarely expressed in her day. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, she painted vivid portraits of English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close. Each of these novels is a love story and a story about marriage—marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not mere romances. Ironic, comic, and wise, they are masterly studies of the society Austen observed. This collection features the following works: Emma Lady Susan Love and Friendship and Other Early Works Mansfield Park Northanger Abbey Persuasion Pride and Prejudice Sense and Sensibility
Title : Jane Austen
Author : Darryl Jones
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
Total pages: 264 pages
Jane Austen remains one of the most popular and widely-read of all great English novelists, attracting and apparently uniting an enormously disparate band of readers, from MA26s to internet fans to traditional 'Janeites'. This book offers a comprehensive one-volume study of Austen that is both a sophisticated critical introduction and a valuable contribution to the study of her work. Combining rigorous historical scholarship with a keen sense of contemporary critical theory, Darryl Jones produces a series of lively and detailed textual, contextual and ideological interpretations of the complete works of Austen - a novelist whose very familiarity can sometimes blind readers to the fact that her works are often far more complex than they seem. Jones insists on the topicality and political relevance of Jane Austen's writings, both to her own times, and, crucially, to our own, and examines how the author engaged with issues of sexuality, class, and nationalism: issues with which we continue to wrestle today. Providing detailed readings of each one of Austen's six published novels (Northanger Abbey, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, and Persuasion), as well as studies of her early, unfinished or fragmentary work, this is an essential volume for anyone studying the work of one of the most important and enduring writers of the nineteenth century.

"Returning author Devoney Looser has written a study of Jane Austen's legacy in high and popular culture, looking at stage and film adaptations of her work, how Austen has been taught in classrooms, Austen's depiction in visual culture, and Austen's role in the women's suffragist movement. Looser draws on popular print and unpublished archival sources, amassing evidence from high, middlebrow, and popular culture, in order to craft a more capacious history of posthumous reception. The book is a detailed and revealing account of what Looser calls the "public dimension" of Jane Austen, who is a "manufactured creation." Looser has dug deep and come up with brand-new material on Austen, something that is very hard to do. This is the kind of material that Janeites and Austen scholars live for"--

Total pages: N.A pages
The Fiddle Game An exploitation of con-genre, “The Fiddle Game” introduces a character like no other, as we meet the mysterious Olivia “Jane Doe” through the eyes of Parker—a young, self-proclaimed scam artist who thinks he’s clever in the way he and his friend Dave do petty shoplifting scams around town and pull off cash tricks from their job at a local marina. Then along comes Olivia, a real grifter. She takes Parker for $300 in a short con, only to give the money back later that same day. Why? She tells him she’s got plans for them. From there, it’s her game. She brings Parker into a “long con” that she seems to be teaching him in pieces, as each small con leads into a larger one. And Parker knows he is always one step behind as his world is repeatedly turned on its head. Inject a tricky romance, and things get even more complicated. Is he the next target? And if he is, is there anything that this girl has missed that might possibly let him get a step ahead? “If there’s one thing you’re going to have to learn,” Olivia tells him, “when dealing with me? The answers don’t always come in the order of the questions.” Run - A Getaway Story If we meet Olivia Jane Doe in “The Fiddle Game,” then we begin to know her in “Run.” Because Olivia had always had a plan. Until now. In fact, her latest high-risk plot now looks like nothing more than a wish list as she finds herself stranded in the most desolate area of Southern Baja with a bag of money she can’t risk carrying, a car she’s forced to ditch, and an “out” that has been completely burned. The man after her is powerful and has people everywhere. These dire straits will push her to places until now ignored. From her earliest days as a seventeen-year-old “short con operator,” to her brief moments of vulnerability in romance, to the vast array of things tragically lost but never mourned, and ultimately to her biggest and most dangerous failures to date that have led to this: raw escape and survival. Unfortunately, this time Olivia is ignorant to the big picture, and to the chain of events that have resulted from her actions. And now she’s the one who’s a step behind. And she’s the one who doesn’t see the fit of the puzzle. And if she’s learned anything throughout her jaded life on the grift, it’s that if there’s something she can’t figure out, then there’s somebody who wants it that way.
