Book excerpt: A time long ago, on the planet of Boldly, a race was on the verge of extinction with little hope left to find a way to stop it. The leader and his scientist tried taking DNA from other species on the planet to create a new life form. A new life they did create, yet it was not acceptable. The scientist told the leader, A female we must have. This statement brought many questions as to how or where. The only females on the planet were infertile.

Download or read book Things I Have Withheld written by Kei Miller and published by Canongate Books. This book was released on 2021-05-06 with total page 171 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: WINNER OF THE OCM BOCAS PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILLIE GIFFORD PRIZE In this astonishing collection of essays, the award-winning poet and novelist Kei Miller explores the silence in which so many important things are kept. He examines the experience of discrimination through this silence and what it means to breach it: to risk words, to risk truths. And he considers the histories our bodies inherit – the crimes that haunt them, and how meaning can shift as we move throughout the world, variously assuming privilege or victimhood. Through letters to James Baldwin, encounters with Liam Neeson, Soca, Carnival, family secrets, love affairs, white women’s tears, questions of aesthetics and more, Miller powerfully and imaginatively recounts everyday acts of racism and prejudice. With both the epigrammatic concision and conversational cadence of his poetry and novels, Things I Have Withheld is a great artistic achievement: a work of beauty which challenges us to interrogate what seems unsayable and why – our actions, defence mechanisms, imaginations and interactions – and those of the world around us.

Book excerpt: Praised as “Australia’s answer to Maeve Binchy, a modern-day Jane Austen” (The Sun Herald, Australia), Monica McInerney, internationally bestselling author of The Alphabet Sisters, returns with a poignant novel of love, loss, and the enduring strength of family ties. Nestled in a picturesque corner of southern Australia, the Valley View Motel has been run by the Quinlans for years—and nobody adores the place more than Lola, the family’s lovable and mischievous Irish-born matriarch. So when she insists that her relatives spend their Christmas elsewhere, the close-knit bunch can’t help but be a bit curious. Lola has always had a knack for clever schemes; after all, she once slyly reunited her three feuding granddaughters, whom she nicknamed the Alphabet Sisters. And with the holiday season fast approaching, Lola decides it’s time to stir up some extra excitement. Plotting in secret and online, Lola thinks it would be fun to invite a select group of strangers to stay at the motel for Christmas. Will these guests become friends, ignite sparks, fall in love? As she counts down the days until their arrival, Lola’s own family dramas threaten to upend her best-laid plans. Yet amid moments of humor, heartache, and unexpected twists of fate, Lola finds that she’s the one who’s in for the biggest surprise of all. “[Monica] McInerney’s assured writing sparkles. . . .

Download or read book Lola A True Story Mostly written by Pauline Gibb and published by Austin Macauley Publishers. This book was released on 2019-03-29 with total page 140 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a furry tale in contrast to a fairy tale, telling the true story of Lola as seen through her own eyes. She takes the reader on the journey of her life from the moment she was rescued at Harding River Caravan Park in Roebourne as a three week old homeless kitten, to the day she arrives in Perth as a mature two year old cat. Lola chronicles the personal trials and tribulations she faced growing up without a mother to guide and teach her what she needed to know to become an effective adult cat. Her story has elements of humour and sadness as she moves from the loss of her feline family to finding a human one who take her on with few expectations for her future. A myriad of situations with both positive and negative outcomes shape Lola's personality along the way to adulthood. These include learning to control her emotions and reactions to unfamiliar experiences, striving to find her niche in a family of other animals and coping with ridicule for being "different". Lola however has a quirky philosophical and thankful attitude to life and no matter what hand she is dealt she develops resilience in the face of adversity, including the break-up of the family she came to love and respect for saving her. You will laugh and you may cry following this fortunately unfortunate little cat who learns that growing up has many lessons, some harder than others. She becomes the feline equivalent of "The Three Stooges" fumbling her way through life. Despite the rough road she not only survives, but thrives thanks to her perseverance and enduring will to live!

Download or read book The A to Z of Postmodernist Literature and Theater written by Fran Mason and published by Scarecrow Press. This book was released on 2009-07-23 with total page 464 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Postmodernist literature embraces a wide range of forms and perspectives, including texts that are primarily self-reflexive; texts that use pastiche, burlesque, parody, intertextuality and hybrid forms to create textual realities that either run in opposition to or in parallel with an external reality; fabulations that develop both of these strategies; texts that ironize their relationship to reality; works that use the aspects already noted to more fully engage with political or cultural realities; texts that deal with history as a fiction; and texts that elude categorization even within the variety already explored. For example, in fiction, a postmodernist novel might tell a story about a writer struggling with writing (only, perhaps, to find that he is a character in a book by another writer struggling to write a book). The A to Z of Postmodernist Literature and Theater examines the different areas of postmodernist literature and the variety of forms that have been produced. This is accomplished through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on individual postmodernist writers, the important postmodernist aesthetic practices, significant texts produced throughout the history of postmodernist writing, and important movements and ideas that have created a variety of literary approaches within the form. By placing these concerns within the historical, philosophical, and cultural contexts of postmodernism, this reference explores the frameworks within which postmodernist literature of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century operates.
Download or read book A Train to Love written by Barbara Cartland and published by Barbara Cartland Ebooks Ltd . This book was released on 2015-03-16 with total page 245 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The beautiful Lola Fenton lives happily in a small cottage in the depths of Worcestershire, but she is suddenly orphaned when her father and mother are killed in a railway crash. Her uncle, the Earl of Kencombe, comes to the funeral and then tells her that, as she has no money, she will have to come and live with him. He obviously has no wish for her to do so, but feels that it is his duty as her legal Guardian. Her mother, Lady Cecilia Combe, had run away with her father and was ostracised by her family for doing so as he had been employed to be a Tutor to her brother. Lola feels that she cannot face the future with people who will continually be telling her how badly her mother had behaved and she therefore goes to London and visits an employment agency. As she is so lovely and so young it seems unlikely that there will be anything to suit her. However, the Marquis of Halaton has been desperately trying to find someone who could repair the curtains in his famous Elizabethan house and Lola, who has been taught by her mother, becomes his embroideress. How the Marquis, who has invented a special electrical engine for trains, persuades Lola into pretending to be his wife in order to overcome a tricky situation with an Italian financier. How she travels by train to Italy with the Marquis, how she is kidnapped and held to ransom by Macedonian partisans and how she finds the sublime love that her father and mother had for each other is all told in this intriguing romantic tale by BARBARA CARTLAND.
