"Ready now, reader? Easy then. That should put you in the right historical frame of mind, put you in mind of the right historical frame. For it did seem easier then, certainly more relaxed. Like the addressed and otherwise rendered nineteenth-century reader who is my subject of study, you are invited to take it slow while we back our way into the last century. We do so by moving from an unexpected modernist send-up of Victorian direct address, an early twist of phrase in E. M. Forster's 1907 The Longest Journey, to the underlying aesthetic of classic realism on which even this one rhetorical irony is by no means intended to pull the plug. On the way back to the nineteenth century, certain realist assumptions help mark out our course."--from Dear Reader With the "great tradition" from Austen through Dickens and Eliot to Hardy read here for the first time alongside the non-canonical best-sellers of the period, we get a revised picture of an evolving readership narrated rather than merely implied, the mass audience conscripted, written with, figured in. Redirecting response aesthetics away from the a priori reader function toward this reader figure, Garrett Stewart's Dear Reader intercepts two tendencies in the recent criticism of fiction: the blanket audience determinations of ideological critique and the thinness of historicizing discourse analysis when divorced from literary history's own discursive field.
'I loved this book . . . I’m so desperate for you all to share in its wonder' - Elizabeth Day 'Dear Reader is a love letter to stories and reading . . . a book to cherish' - Nina Stibbe For as long as she can remember, Cathy Rentzenbrink has lost and found herself in stories. Growing up she was rarely seen without her nose in a book and read in secret long after lights out. When tragedy struck, books kept her afloat. Eventually they lit the way to a new path, first as a bookseller and then as a writer. No matter what the future holds, reading will always help. Dear Reader is a moving, funny and joyous exploration of how books can change the course of your life, packed with recommendations from one reader to another. From the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Last Act of Love.
“Imaginative, exhilarating, genre-bending, and one of the best YA novels of the year.” —BookRiot “An audacious tale. Like much classic literature and like growing up, reading this immersive novel is all about the experience.” —The Horn Book An IndieNext Pick! Gilmore Girls meets Wuthering Heights in Mary O'Connell's Dear Reader, a whip-smart, poignant, modern-day take on Emily Brontë’s classic novel. For seventeen-year-old Flannery Fields, the only respite from the plaid-skirted mean girls at Sacred Heart High School is her beloved teacher Miss Sweeney’s AP English class. But when Miss Sweeney doesn't show up to teach Flannery's favorite book, Wuthering Heights, leaving behind her purse, Flannery knows something is wrong. The police are called, and Flannery gives them everything—except Miss Sweeney's copy of Wuthering Heights. This she holds onto. And good thing she does, because when she opens it, it has somehow transformed into Miss Sweeney's real-time diary. It seems Miss Sweeney is in New York City—and she's in trouble. So Flannery does something very unFlannery-like: she skips school and sets out for Manhattan, with the book as her guide. But as soon as she arrives, she meets a boy named Heath. Heath is British, on a gap year, incredibly smart—yet he's never heard of Albert Einstein or Anne Frank. In fact, Flannery can't help thinking that he seems to have stepped from the pages of Brontë's novel. Could it be that Flannery is spending this topsy-turvy day with her ultimate fictional romantic hero, Heathcliff, reborn in the twenty-first century?
There's a lot of good to be said about publishing, mainly about the food. The books, though - Robert Dubois feels as if he's read the books, but still they keep coming back to him, the same old books just by new authors. Maybe he's ready to settle into the end of his career, like it's a tipsy afternoon after a working lunch. But then he is confronted with a gift: a piece of technology, a gizmo, a reader... Dear Reader takes a wry, affectionate look at the world of publishing, books and authors, and is a very funny, moving story about the passing of the old and the excitement of the new. Paul Fournel was born in 1947. He worked as a publisher with Ramsay and Seghers, and chaired the Société des gens de lettres. He was head of the Alliance Française in San Francisco, and a cultural attaché in Cairo and London. He now writes full time and cycles during the rest of the day. As a third full-time job, he is the Provisionally Definitive Secretary and President of the literary collective known as Oulipo, whose members have included George Perec and Italo Calvino, among many others. He is also the author of numerous novels, short stories, plays, memoirs, and poetry. David Bellos is Director of the Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication at Princeton University, where he is also Professor of French and Comparative Literature. He has won many awards for his translations of Georges Perec, Ismail Kadare and others, including the Man Booker Translator Award, and received the Prix Goncourt de la biographie for George Perec: A Life in Words.
A wry commentary on the weirdness of modern life. This is a book for anyone who has wondered how we inhabit this surreal world with a new set of youngsters that live in the fantasyland and although are experts in Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter plus all the gadgets you can imagine, they do not know the difference between a Picasso and a Warhol painting let alone discerning Chopin from Debussy. Someone once said that the Orientals invented gunpowder to use for fireworks during the festive seasons only to have the West turn it into a base for destruction by producing firearms. Man’s use of modern science, be it nuclear power, television, smart phones, motor cars, information technology including the monstrous Internet can all be consider in a similar vein. Although the potential to improve mankind’s short stay on this planet with the use of these new discoveries and inventions is there, man somehow continues to allow evil to creep in and dominate over good. This is a highly entertaining and witty collection of tales based around the follies and fascinations of modern technology and philosophical analysis as well as stories that are based on fact. Managing simultaneously to be both humorous and serious, the author portrays a variety of scenarios in which man becomes increasingly dominated and influenced by his own machines and bizarre creations. Other narratives take the form of anecdotes or personal adventures where human dram plays a central role. There is something for everyone; even computer lovers will be entertained and amused by the author’s images of the future in a collection of pieces which could be described as modern morality fables, albeit with some rather original and unexpected twists.

For Flannery Fields, the only respite from the mean girls at school is Miss Sweeney's English class. But when Miss Sweeney doesn't show up to teach her favourite book, Wuthering Heights, Flannery knows something is wrong. When the police are called, Flannery surrenders everything except for Miss Sweeney's precious dog-eared, annotated copy of Wuthering Heights. When she opens it later, it has transformed into her teacher's real-time diary. It appears Miss Sweeney is in New York City - and she's in trouble. So Flannery does something very unFlannery-like: she skips school and sets out for Manhattan, the diary as her guide. There she meets Heath, British, handsome and incredibly smart - yet he's never heard of Albert Einstein or Anne Frank. He could almost have stepped from the pages of BrontÃ's novel.
New Cover; Oh, be careful as you judge Emma, dear reader! Few characters in Church history are as misunderstood as Emma Smith. a member of the Church from the beginning and a staunch supporter of her husband through his trials and eventual death, Emma lived a difficult life, yet many wonder how she could have turned her back on the beliefs that she held so strongly and suffered so much for. Judge Me, Dear Reader is the story of Emma, one of the greatest champions - and most criticized members - of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. By showing Emma in a more sympathetic light, the author reminds each of us that Emma - and everyone else - will be judged according to the desires of their heart by the only one who can see things clearly: the Lord. While presiding over the Nauvoo mission, Erwin E. Wirkus developed an interest in Emma's story. He writes, I find few women who were asked to go through as such hardship, heartache, and tragedy as did Emma Smith. with his unique understanding, Wirkus wrote this historical novel from Emma's perspective to give readers a clearer picture of the joys and sorrows she experienced throughout her life.

"My Dear Reader..." is a weird account of a serial killer with a bit of an ego problem. The first in the "Weird Bizarro S.K." series, Bartholomew Randall O'Keefe III gives an account of his first kill, explains what some of his favorite things are, illustrates his book unnecessarily, and delves into the nature of human action and personal responsibility, all while also taunting the police. This book also introduces the reader to another serial killer known as Millstone, another personality of the author. Never really predictable, but altogether pointless and poorly crafted, this work gives you a glimpse into the unstable mind of a serial killer who is still on the loose.Bartholomew lives in an undisclosed Illinois town, and of this book, his own spouse said "This is absurdist drivel, and a cause for concern. Is this what you have been doing on Saturday nights?"
Retranslation is a phenomenon which gives rise to multiple translations of a particular work. But theoretical engagement with the motivations and outcomes of retranslation often falls short of acknowledging the complex nature of this repetitive process, and reasoning has so far been limited to considerations of progress, updating and challenge; there is even less in the way of empirical study. This book seeks to redress the balance through its case studies on the initial translations and retranslations of Flaubert's Madame Bovary and Sand's pastoral tale La Mare au diable within the British literary context. What emerges is a detailed exposition of how and why these works have been retold, alongside a critical re-evaluation of existing lines of enquiry into retranslation. A flexible methodology for the study of retranslations is also proposed which draws on Systemic Functional Grammar, narratology, narrative theory and genetic criticism.

The Lady Upstairs is the dramatic story of Dorothy Schiff---liberal activist, society stalwart, and the most dynamic female newspaper publisher of her day. From 1939 until 1976 she owned and guided the New York Post, the oldest continuously published daily newspaper in the United States. Dolly, as she was called, made the Post one of the most dedicated supporters of New Deal liberalism in the country, while simultaneously maintaining its distinct personality as a chatty, parochial, New York tabloid. Unfazed by political or personal controversy, Schiff backed editorial writers like James Wechsler and Max Lerner and reporters like Murray Kempton and Pete Hamill. Under her guidance the Post broke the story of Richard Nixon's slush fund. It helped bring down such icons of the day as Joseph McCarthy, Walter Winchell, and Robert Moses. It supported the civil rights movement and opposed the Vietnam War. Although Dolly seldom appeared in the newsroom, she approved and commented on every major story and every minor column in the paper, until eventually selling it to Rupert Murdoch. Dolly's private life could have been a staple of the Post's society gossip columns. Endlessly flirtatious, she married four times and had extra-marital romances with, among others, Franklin Roosevelt and Max Beaverbrook. She was a friend of national politicians such as Adlai Stevenson, the Kennedys, Lyndon Johnson, and Nelson Rockefeller. Born into a staunchly Republican German-Jewish banking family, she used her inheritance to further causes of the political left. She used her charm and her social connections in the service of her paper, which was the center of her life. The Lady Upstairs is the portrait of a unique life and a crucial era in American history.
Remembering Winston Champlain's offer, Danica Lynch shook her head. Something told her that as a neighbor Winston was going to be a problem. Well, she was certainly in no danger of becoming enamored of the man. She knew his kind far too well for that. But when she found herself being cradled against Winston's solid chest, with long strong arms wrapped around her, somehow she felt…safe. "Time to get a grip," she told herself aloud. "You need to get your own life in order." And no more being charmed by the likes of Winston Champlain, she added silently.
