Summary:

Fans of Artemis Fowl and Percy Jackson and the Olympians will definitely want to read Champions of Breakfast, the final book in Adam Rex's acclaimed Cold Cereal Saga, which Eoin Colfer called "totally original and wholly brilliant." When we last left our kid heroes, Emily had managed to halt Queen Titania by closing a rift in the time-space continuum, trapping Scott, Mick, and her other friends in the magical other-England known as Pretannica. However, time is quickly running out before Nimue, who has been working through the corrupt Goodco Cereal Company, finds another portal and uses it to bring the mythical dragon Saxbriton into our world—and launch the terrible faerie invasion. In the end, it's up to Scott and his companions to save the fate of two worlds and put an end to Goodco once and for all. Adam Rex ends the world as we know it—and the Cold Cereal Saga—with this hilarious and dazzling epic tale.

Kurt Vonnegut and the American Novel

Kurt Vonnegut and the American Novel ebook ISBN: 1441130349
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
Author: Robert T. Tally, Jr.
Number of Pages: 208

Summary:

The novels of Kurt Vonnegut depict a profoundly absurd and distinctly postmodern world. But in this critical study, Robert Tally argues that Vonnegut himself is actually a modernist, who is less interested in indulging in the free play of signifiers than in attempting to construct a model that could encompass the American experience at the end of the twentieth century. As a modernist wrestling with a postmodern condition, Vonnegut makes use of diverse and sometimes eccentric narrative techniques (such as metafiction, collage, and temporal slippages) to project a comprehensive vision of life in the United States. Vonnegut's novels thus become experiments in making sense of the radical transformations of self and society during that curious, unstable period called, perhaps ironically, the 'American Century.' An untimely figure, Vonnegut develops a postmodern iconography of American civilization while simultaneously acknowledging the impossibility of a truly comprehensive representation.

Summary:

Riche héritier, pompier bénévole, vétéran de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, passablement porté sur la bouteille, Eliot Rosewater ne se reconnaît pas dans la devise de sa famille : Prendre trop, bien trop, ou se retrouver sans rien. Lui préférant de loin Nom de Dieu, il faut être bon, Eliot part appliquer sa maxime aux âmes qui vivent sur ses terres, dans le comté de Rosewater, Indiana. Là, en doux dingue, il répond aux appels au feu et aux appels à l'aide des infortunés. Mais le personnage principal de cette fable sur les gens est une somme d'argent qu'un avocat véreux tente d'empocher. Avec un humour décapant et un esprit affûté, Kurt Vonnegut, immense figure de la littérature américaine, conte la destinée d'un illuminé qui a décidé d’en finir avec le capitalisme.

Summary:

Kurt Vonnegut is one of the few American writers since Mark Twain to have won and sustained a great popular acceptance while boldly introducing new themes and forms on the literary cutting edge. This is the "Vonnegut effect" that Jerome Klinkowitz finds unique among postmodernist authors. In this innovative study of the author's fiction, Klinkowitz examines the forces in American life that have made Vonnegut's works possible. Vonnegut shared with readers a world that includes the expansive timeline from the Great Depression, during which his family lost their economic support, through the countercultural revolt of the 1960s, during which his fiction first gained prominence. Vonnegut also explored the growth in recent decades of America's sway in art, which his fiction celebrates, and geopolitics, which his novels question. A pioneer in Vonnegut studies, Jerome Klinkowitz offers The Vonnegut Effect as a thorough treatment of the author's fiction-a canon covering more than a half century and comprising twenty books. Considering both Vonnegut's methods and the cultural needs they have served, Klinkowitz explains how those works came to be written and concludes with an assessment of the author's place in American fiction.

Summary:

H.-G. Wells (1866-1946) "L’excellent Mr. Morris était un Anglais qui vivait au temps de la bonne reine Victoria. C’était un homme prospère et fort sensé ; il lisait le Times et allait à l’église. Vers l’âge mûr, une expression de dédain tranquille et satisfait pour tout ce qui n’était pas comme lui se fixa sur son visage. Il était de ces gens qui font avec une inévitable régularité tout ce qui est bien, correct et raisonnable. Toujours il portait des habits corrects et convenables, juste milieu entre l’élégant et le mesquin. Il contribuait régulièrement aux œuvres charitables de bon ton, compromis judicieux entre l’ostentation et la lésinerie, et ne manquait jamais de se faire couper les cheveux à la longueur exactement convenable. Tout ce qu’il était correct et convenable de posséder pour un homme dans sa position, il le possédait. Et tout ce qu’il n’était ni correct ni convenable de posséder pour un homme dans sa position il ne le possédait pas. Parmi ces possessions correctes et convenables, ce Mr. Morris avait une femme et des enfants. Naturellement, il avait une femme du genre convenable et il avait des enfants de genre et en nombre convenables ; rien de fantaisiste et d’étourdi chez aucun d’eux, autant que Mr. Morris pouvait le voir. Ils portaient des vêtements parfaitement corrects, ni élégants, ni hygiéniques, ni élimés mais juste selon les convenances. Ils vivaient dans une jolie et décente maison d’architecture victorienne, faux style reine Anne, avec, dans les pignons, de faux chevrons en plâtre peint couleur chocolat, de faux panneaux de chêne sculpté en Lincrusta Walton, une terrasse en terre cuite qui imitait la pierre et de faux vitraux à la porte d’entrée. Ses garçons allèrent à de bonnes et solides écoles et embrassèrent de respectables professions ; ses filles, en dépit d’une ou deux velléités fantaisistes, furent mariées à des partis sortables, rangés, vieillots et « ayant des espérances ». Et quand ce fut pour lui une chose convenable et opportune Mr. Morris mourut. Son tombeau fut de marbre, sans inscriptions laudatives ni fadaises artistiques, tranquillement imposant, telle étant la mode en ce temps-là." Au XXIIe siècle, Denton et Elizabeth s'aiment et veulent vivre " libres" loin de la cité moderne... mais rien n'est rose pour eux... Le progrès améliore-t-il la condition humaine ?

Summary:

You can quote lines from Sixteen Candles (“Last night at the dancemy little brother paid a buck to see your underwear”), your iPod playlist includes more than one song by the Psychedelic Furs and Simple Minds, you watch The Breakfast Club every time it comes on cable, and you still wish that Andie had ended up with Duckie in Pretty in Pink. You’re a bonafide Brat Pack devotee—and you’re not alone. The films of the Brat Pack—from Sixteen Candles to Say Anything—are some of the most watched, bestselling DVDs of all time. The landscape that the Brat Packmemorialized—where outcasts and prom queens fall in love, preppies and burn-outs become buds, and frosted lip gloss, skinny ties, and exuberant optimism made us feel invincible—is rich with cultural themes and significance, and has influenced an entire generation who still believe that life always turns out the way it is supposed to. You Couldn’t Ignore Me If You Tried takes us back to that era, interviewing key players, such as Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Andrew McCarthy, and John Cusack, and mines all the material from the movies to the music to the way the films were made to show how they helped shape our visions for romance, friendship, society, and success.

Summary:

In this revised edition of a volume originally published in 1989, Lawrence Broer extends his comprehensive critique of the body of writing by Kurt Vonnegut. Broer offers a broad psychoanalytic study of Vonnegut’s works from Player Piano to Hocus Pocus, taking a decisively new approach to the work of one of America’s most important, yet often misinterpreted writers. A compelling and original analysis, Sanity Plea, explores how Vonnegut incorporates his personal experiences into an art that is not defeatist, but rather creatively therapeutic and life-affirming.
