J.D. Salinger s continued silence strengthens the enigma of his life and fuels a growing appetite for answers to the many questions about his fiction and persona. Letters to J.D. Salinger provides a unique opportunity for the many frustrated writers, editors, critics, journalists, scholars and other luminaries who have longed to address the author and pose specific questions about his literary choices and craft. These imaginary letters offer fresh reflections of Salinger s work. Some consider the way his work touched their own; others reflect on how he influenced society and craft of fiction; still others offer a fresh perspective on Salinger s life. Taken together Letters to J.D. Salinger both provides a new forum for articulate and thoughful people who long wished to have an opportunity to speak with the reclusive and reticent author and facilitates a fresh and open dialogue and exchange of ideas on Salinger s contribution to modern American life and letters.


Charts on the Life, Letters, and Theology of Paul


Title : Charts on the Life, Letters, and Theology of Paul
Author : Lars Kierspel
Publisher: Kregel Academic
Total pages: 284 pages
ISBN: 0825429366

"This useful contribution by Lars Kierspel provides us with a treasure trove of information on Paul's world, life and ministry, churches, letters, and thought. All of this is condensed into a format of some 111 charts, each covering a different topic related to Paul and his epistles. The charts are arranged into four categories, covering Paul's background and context, his life and ministry, his letters, and finally his theological concepts. Though not completely exhaustive in scope, Kierspel covers the main issues in each category, such as the religious and political context of Paul's world and the setting of each Pauline letter, with brief introductions ("snapshots") of its contents. Current scholarly debates about such things as authorship and interpretation of problem passages are treated thoroughly and in a balanced presentation, with ample bibliographical notes for further investigation. Especially valuable are his treatments of topics of particular current interest and scholarly debate, such as the role of women in Paul's churches, the meaning of his phrase "faith (of) Christ," and the "new perspective" on Paul, to mention but a few."--John Polhill, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Joseph A. Marchal leads a group of scholars who are also experienced teachers in courses on Paul. More than a series of "how-to" essays in interpretation, each chapter in this volume shows how differences in starting point and interpretive decisions shape different ways of understanding Paul. Each teacher-scholar focuses on what a particular method brings to interpretation and applies that method to a text in Paul's letters, aiming not just at the beginning student but at the "tough choices" every teacher must make in balancing information with critical reflection.

Letters to Véra

Author : Vladimir Nabokov
Publisher: Knopf
Total pages: 864 pages
ISBN: 110187581X

The letters of the great writer to his wife—gathered here for the first time—chronicle a decades-long love story and document anew the creative energies of an artist who was always at work. No marriage of a major twentieth-century writer is quite as beguiling as that of Vladimir Nabokov’s to Véra Slonim. She shared his delight in life’s trifles and literature’s treasures, and he rated her as having the best and quickest sense of humor of any woman he had met. From their first encounter in 1923, Vladimir’s letters to Véra form a narrative arc that tells a half-century-long love story, one that is playful, romantic, pithy and memorable. At the same time, the letters tell us much about the man and the writer. We see the infectious fascination with which Vladimir observed everything—animals, people, speech, the landscapes and cityscapes he encountered—and learn of the poems, plays, stories, novels, memoirs, screenplays and translations on which he worked ceaselessly. This delicious volume contains twenty-one photographs, as well as facsimiles of the letters themselves and the puzzles and doodles Vladimir often sent to Véra. From the Hardcover edition.

Becoming a Woman of Letters

ISBN: 9780691140179

During the nineteenth century, women authors for the first time achieved professional status, secure income, and public fame. How did these women enter the literary profession; meet the demands of editors, publishers, booksellers, and reviewers; and achieve distinction as "women of letters"? Becoming a Woman of Letters examines the various ways women writers negotiated the market realities of authorship, and looks at the myths and models women writers constructed to elevate their place in the profession. Drawing from letters, contracts, and other archival material, Linda Peterson details the careers of various women authors from the Victorian period. Some, like Harriet Martineau, adopted the practices of their male counterparts and wrote for periodicals before producing a best seller; others, like Mary Howitt and Alice Meynell, began in literary partnerships with their husbands and pursued independent careers later in life; and yet others, like Charlotte Brontë, and her successors Charlotte Riddell and Mary Cholmondeley, wrote from obscure parsonages or isolated villages, hoping an acclaimed novel might spark a meteoric rise to fame. Peterson considers these women authors' successes and failures--the critical esteem that led to financial rewards and lasting reputations, as well as the initial successes undermined by publishing trends and pressures. Exploring the burgeoning print culture and the rise of new genres available to Victorian women authors, this book provides a comprehensive account of the flowering of literary professionalism in the nineteenth century.

Letters from Verdun


Title : Letters from Verdun
Author : Avery Wolfe,William Harvey
Publisher: Casemate
Total pages: 226 pages
ISBN: 1612000282

A beautifully written and fully illustrated experience of the Great War from a participant . . . Though the United States was late to enter the Great War, a number of idealistic young Americans wished to take part from the beginning. One of these was Avery Royce Wolf, a highly educated scion of a family in America's burgeoning industrial heartland. Volunteering as an ambulance driver with the French Army in the Verdun sector, Royce sent back a constant stream of highly detailed letters describing the experience of frontline combat, not excluding comments on strategy, the country he encountered, and the Allies' prospects for success. This treasure trove of brilliant letters, only recently discovered, is accompanied by several albums worth of rare, high-quality photos depicting aspects of the Great War in France never previously published. The book contains expert overviews to set the reader in Royce's time and place; however, the narrative is most gripping with his own day-to-day perceptions, analytical and emotional in turn. The reader can sympathize with Royce's dilemma when his original term of service expires and he wonders whether to return home. But then the American army begins to arrive and he decides to continue on. We hear firsthand how the U.S. troops are first kept out of battle, then take casualties no veteran unit would have sustained, because of their fresh-faced audacity. When the Ludendorff Offensive unfolds in spring 1918 there is nothing but disaster to report, as each day witnesses a new collapse before the seemingly unstoppable Germans. Royce believes that the entire Allied war effort is doomed. But then somehow the Allies hold on and the war is nearly at an end. Full of exciting experiences as well as interesting firsthand analyses such as comparing French and German trench works (the latter were far better), Letters from Verdun brings the reader amazingly close to the frontlines of the Great War, almost as if in person.

Letters from Rifka


Title : Letters from Rifka
Author : Karen Hesse

ISBN: 1466801328

From Newbery media winner Karen Hesse comes an unforgettable story of an immigrant family's journey to America. "America," the girl repeated. "What will you do there?" I was silent for a little time. "I will do everything there," I answered. Rifka knows nothing about America when she flees from Russia with her family in 1919. But she dreams that in the new country she will at last be safe from the Russian soldiers and their harsh treatment of the Jews. Throughout her journey, Rifka carries with her a cherished volume of poetry by Alexander Pushkin. In it, she records her observations and experiences in the form of letters to Tovah, the beloved cousin she has left behind. Strong-hearted and determined, Rifka must endure a great deal: humiliating examinations by doctors and soldiers, deadly typhus, separation from all she has ever known and loved, murderous storms at sea, detainment on Ellis Island--and is if this is not enough, the loss of her glorious golden hair. Based on a true story from the author's family, Letters from Rifka presents a real-life heroine with an uncommon courage and unsinkable spirit.
