📝Consider The Lobster Book Synopsis : Do lobsters feel pain? Did Franz Kafka have a sick sense of humour? What is John Updike's deal anyway? And who won the Adult Video News' Female Performer of the Year Award the same year Gwyneth Paltrow won her Oscar? David Foster Wallace answers these questions and more in his new book of hilarious non-fiction. For this collection, David Foster Wallace immerses himself in the three-ring circus that is the presidential race in order to document one of the most vicious campaigns in recent history. Later he strolls from booth to booth at a lobster festival in Maine and risks life and limb to get to the bottom of the lobster question. Then he wheedles his way into an L.A. radio studio, armed with tubs of chicken, to get the behind-the-scenes view of a conservative talkshow featuring a host with an unnatural penchant for clothing that only looks good on the radio. In what is sure to be a much-talked-about exploration of distinctly modern subjects, one of the sharpest minds of our time delves into some of life's most delicious topics.

📝 Book Synopsis : Дебютный роман от автора «Ночного кино» — пожалуй, одного из самых удивительных бестселлеров последних лет. Впрочем, прогремела на весь мир Мариша Пессл еще с первым своим романом, отправив несколько глав литературному агенту своего кумира Джонатана Франзена и присовокупив следующее описание: «Эта книга не будет похожа ни на что, что вы читали в этом году: забавная, энциклопедическая и безумно амбициозная история о любви и потере, молодости и старении, ужасе и предательстве». Далее — договор с издательством, предложившим беспрецедентно высокий для молодого начинающего автора аванс, первые строчки в списках бестселлеров, перевод на множество языков. Итак, познакомьтесь с новой героиней нашего времени — Синь Ван Меер. Она нечеловечески эрудированна в области литературы, философии и науки, может наизусть продекламировать число «пи» до шестьдесят пятого знака после запятой и объехала с отцом-профессором (по совместительству — записным сердцеедом) огромное количество городов по всей стране — но в шестнадцать лет жизнь ее необратимо изменится вследствие неких драматических событий…

📝 XXI Book Synopsis : Отзыв: Если вас так же, как и меня, интересуют фантастические подробности жизни удивительных животных, эта книга для вас. Каспар Хендерсон открывает нам мир реальных существ, которых человек в здравом уме придумать не смог бы. Франс де Вааль, автор книги «Истоки морали» «Книге о самых невообразимых животных» мог бы позавидовать Плиний, ее одобрил бы Дарвин, а Борхес получил бы истинное наслаждение. Это гимн причудливому воображению Вселенной, придумавшей рыбку данио рерио и краба йети, это уроки удивительных открытий и восторг узнавания самих себя в описаниях когтей и перьев. Сегодня, в наши апокалиптические дни, нет лучшего подарка, чем волшебная книга Каспара Хендерсона. Альберто Мангуэль, автор The Library at Night Волшебная, добротно исполненная, красивая и изумительно интересная книга. Sunday Times Роскошная смесь науки, мифологии и литературы, изобилующая лирическими отступлениями оставили меня под большим впечатлением. Ричард Форти, автор книги «Трилобиты. Свидетели эволюции» О чем книга: Реальные животные бывают причудливее самых невероятных фантазий и завораживают нас не меньше, чем иллюстрации средневекового бестиария. Эта мысль побудила Каспара Хендерсона написать преисполненную нежности и тревоги о нашей планете книгу. Чем больше мы изучаем природу, тем более поразительные открытия делаем. Живущего почти в кипятке краба йети ученые обнаружили только в 2005 году. Аксолотль, способный регенерировать не только утраченные конечности, но и некоторые внутренние органы, внушает надежды трансплантологам. Таинственные губки многое способны рассказать о происхождении животных и человека. Царю природы отведена отдельная глава, хотя по сути ему посвящена вся книга, ведь самих животных автор рассматривает через призму их похожести и непохожести на человека, выясняя, как эволюция и разнообразие форм помогают толковать человеческую природу. Кто автор: Каспар Хендерсон — британский писатель и журналист, пишущий для The Financial Times, The Independent, New Scientist, The Ecologist, Environmental Finance, Green Futures. Богатая школа журналистики и путешествий сделала его активным участником движения в защиту природы, а «Книга о самых невообразимых животных. Бестиарий XXI века» принесла целый ряд престижных литературных премий и международный успех.

📝Gesturing Toward Reality David Foster Wallace and Philosophy Book Synopsis : Asked in 2006 about the philosophical nature of his fiction, the late American writer David Foster Wallace replied, "If some people read my fiction and see it as fundamentally about philosophical ideas, what it probably means is that these are pieces where the characters are not as alive and interesting as I meant them to be." Gesturing Toward Reality looks into this quality of Wallace's work-when the writer dons the philosopher's cap-and sees something else. With essays offering a careful perusal of Wallace's extensive and heavily annotated self-help library, re-considerations of Wittgenstein's influence on his fiction, and serious explorations into the moral and spiritual landscape where Wallace lived and wrote, this collection offers a perspective on Wallace that even he was not always ready to see. Since so much has been said in specifically literary circles about Wallace's philosophical acumen, it seems natural to have those with an interest in both philosophy and Wallace's writing address how these two areas come together.

📝The Problem with Pleasure Book Synopsis : Aldous Huxley decried “the horrors of modern ‘pleasure,’” or the proliferation of mass produced, widely accessible entertainment that could degrade or dull the mind. He and his contemporaries, including James Joyce, T. S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein, D. H. Lawrence, and Jean Rhys, sought to radically redefine pleasure, constructing arduous and indirect paths to delight through their notoriously daunting work. Laura Frost follows these experiments in the art of unpleasure, connecting modernism’s signature characteristics, such as irony, allusiveness, and obscurity, to an ambitious attempt to reconfigure bliss. In The Problem with Pleasure, Frost draws upon a wide variety of materials, linking interwar amusements, such as the talkies, romance novels, the Parisian fragrance Chanel no. 5, and the exotic confection Turkish Delight, to the artistic play of Joyce, Lawrence, Stein, Rhys, and others. She considers pop cultural phenomena and the rise of celebrities such as Rudolph Valentino and Gypsy Rose Lee against contemporary sociological, scientific, and philosophical writings on leisure and desire. Throughout her study, Frost incorporates recent scholarship on material and visual culture and vernacular modernism, recasting the period’s high/low, elite/popular divides and formal strategies as efforts to regulate sensual and cerebral experience. Capturing the challenging tensions between these artists’ commitment to innovation and the stimulating amusements they denounced yet deployed in their writing, Frost calls attention to the central role of pleasure in shaping interwar culture.

📝Postirony Book Synopsis : What is 'postirony'? Foremost, it is a response to the ironic zeitgeist. Moreover, it is the key to understanding a specific form of literature. The contemporary reader is familiar with and - unfortunately - used to postmodernism's ironic, self-reflexive metafiction. Authors like David Foster Wallace and Dave Eggers chose a different path: Despite the reign of contemporary irony, they strive to reach the reader on a level beyond, cognitively as well as emotionally - they claim to be sincere and true. Focusing largely on nonfiction by said authors, Lukas Hoffmann explores the means the texts use to achieve something new - namely, a new form of sincerity.

📝This Is Water Book Synopsis : Only once did David Foster Wallace give a public talk on his views on life, during a commencement address given in 2005 at Kenyon College. The speech is reprinted for the first time in book form in THIS IS WATER. How does one keep from going through their comfortable, prosperous adult life unconsciously? How do we get ourselves out of the foreground of our thoughts and achieve compassion? The speech captures Wallace's electric intellect as well as his grace in attention to others. After his death, it became a treasured piece of writing reprinted in The Wall Street Journal and the London Times, commented on endlessly in blogs, and emailed from friend to friend. Writing with his one-of-a-kind blend of causal humor, exacting intellect, and practical philosophy, David Foster Wallace probes the challenges of daily living and offers advice that renews us with every reading.

📝The Cinema of David Cronenberg Book Synopsis : Review: "David Cronenberg has moved from the depths of low-budget exploitation horror to become one of North America's most respected movie directors. Since the early 1970s, the softly-spoken Baron of Blood has attracted widespread controversies with a steady stream of shocks - sex-crazed parasites in Shivers (1975), exploding heads in Scanners (1981), revolutionary flesh technology in Videodrome (1983), mutating bugs in The Fly (1986), car crash scars in Crash (1996) and psychopathic bursts of gun fire in A History of Violence (2005). This new study provides an overview of Cronenberg's films in the light of their international reception, placing them firmly in the cultures they influenced. It also highlights often-ignored works, such as the race movie Fast Company (1979), and includes a chapter on the latest film Eastern Promises (2007). Amidst bans and boos, Cronenberg has developed a consistent cult following for his chronicles of humankind's struggle with its ever-changing environment, bugged by technology and changing social roles - becoming a hero of contemporary popular culture."--Jacket

📝Ulysses in Focus Book Synopsis : "What if you had never opened the book of your life? Or if that book had been even a little different? Ulysses in Focus takes up these vertiginous questions, raveling out episodes in the writing, critical reception, and editing of Joyce's masterpiece and twining them together with stories from a life spent elucidating it. Joyce himself would have admired the variety that Michael Groden offers us here: fascinating new readings of Ulysses by its foremost genetic critic; behind-the-scenes accounts of editorial contretemps and secret manuscript acquisitions; the sorrow of shelved projects and the thrill of the bibliographic quest. At its core, Ulysses in Focus tells the story of a reader and a book that seem to have been destined for one another. Yet its method is against destiny, seeking to free texts from the published state in which they ossify by restoring to us a sense of their evolution and their contingency. To read Groden is to think differently about reading and being: to suspect that a book, like a life, might be the sum of its untaken roads."--Paul K. Saint-Amour, University of Pennsylvania "This is an engaging, reflective, and highly personal set of essays and recollections by a leading Joyce scholar. It urges us to see ,Ulysses not as a finished monument, but as a mobile piece of writing in constant dialogue with its own processes of composition and avant-textes."--Anne Fogarty, coeditor of Bloomsday 100: Essays onUlysses Michael Groden has been at the forefront of some of the most important developments in James Joyce studies over the past three decades. He was a major figure in and early adopter of genetic scholarship--the method of analyzing a literary work by looking at its development from draft to draft, particularly suited to Joyce's stories and novels. He defended Hans Walter Gabler's Ulysses edition in the "Joyce Wars" and helped introduce the National Library of Ireland's new Joyce manuscripts to the world. Bringing together twelve essays in three areas of Joyce criticism and scholarship, this refreshing book offers various personal adventures from a life lived with Joyce's work. In a manner that is at once modest, rigorous, and accessible, Ulysses in Focus engagingly connects these scholarly developments and contretemps to the author's personal history and provides fascinating new genetic readings of several episodes of Ulysses that advance our understanding of the novel's composition.
