Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin Book Summary:

Is it possible to grow up while getting younger? Welcome to Elsewhere. It is warm, with a breeze, and the beaches are marvelous. It's quiet and peaceful. You can't get sick or any older. Curious to see new paintings by Picasso? Swing by one of Elsewhere's museums. Need to talk to someone about your problems? Stop by Marilyn Monroe's psychiatric practice. Elsewhere is where fifteen-year-old Liz Hall ends up, after she has died. It is a place so like Earth, yet completely different. Here Liz will age backward from the day of her death until she becomes a baby again and returns to Earth. But Liz wants to turn sixteen, not fourteen again. She wants to get her driver's license. She wants to graduate from high school and go to college. And now that she's dead, Liz is being forced to live a life she doesn't want with a grandmother she has only just met. And it is not going well. How can Liz let go of the only life she has ever known and embrace a new one? Is it possible that a life lived in reverse is no different from a life lived forward? This moving, often funny book about grief, death, and loss will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned. Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin is a 2006 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Ensemble ailleurs - Together Elsewhere

Elsewhere Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Ensemble ailleurs - Together Elsewhere by Pierre Tremblay,Louise Poissant Book Summary:

Être branché représente plus encore que McLuhan ne l’avait prédit, une réalité qui condamne à l’oubli ou à la disparition tout ce qui est hors circuit. Isolement, solitude et fragilité semblent se mesurer en largeur de bande passante, pour les individus aussi bien que pour les pays. La connexité change donc les façons de voir, de penser et de faire, et détermine, dans un même élan, le rayon d’action et le mode d’existence de ce qui résiste ou échappe à cette connectivité. Ce livre présente des travaux d’artistes et les réflexions de théoriciens qui explorent ou illustrent les deux faces de cette réalité : d’une part, l’immense et la profonde infiltration de la connexité qui ouvre tant de perspectives, et d’autre part la négativité que peuvent engendrer les changements actuels qui se déploient à grande vitesse. Comment pouvons-nous envisager d’être-ensemble, pour reprendre la belle expression d’Hannah Arendt ? Quelles sont les modalités à inventer pour un vivre-ensemble et un agir-ensemble permettant de conjuguer différences et spécificités dans le village global ? Quels sont les paris à relever dans un contexte où l’on ignore les limites des technologies que l’on a conçues ? Being technologically connected, being online, represents a reality still greater and more complex than Marshall McLuhan predicted ; it represents a reality that seems to neglect or even obliterate the unconnected. Connection allows us all to be together and elsewhere simultaneously. Isolation, loneliness and fragility seem to be measured in bandwidth, for individuals as well as for countries. Connection is changing ways of seeing, thinking and doing – and it determines the range and mode of existence of those that resist or escape this connectivity. This book presents the work of artists and the reflections of theorists who explore or illustrate both sides of this reality : firstly, the immense and deep infiltration of connection that opens many perspectives, and secondly, the social malaise which is often the result of rapid change. To borrow from the lexicon of Hannah Arendt, how can we foresee being together ? What are the modalities we need to invent in order to create new ways of living together and new ways of acting together, modalities that will allow us to unite despite differences and specificities in the global village ? What are the stakes of this game when we attempt to think beyond the limits of current technology ?

American elsewhere by Robert Jackson Bennett,Laurent Philibert-Caillat Book Summary:

Veillée par une lune rose, Wink, au Nouveau-Mexique, est une petite ville idéale. À un détail près : elle ne figure sur aucune carte. Après deux ans d'errance, Mona Bright, ex-flic, vient d'y hériter de la maison de sa mère, qui s'est suicidée trente ans plus tôt. Très vite, Mona s'attache au calme des rues, aux jolis petits pavillons, aux habitants qui semblent encore vivre dans l'utopique douceur des années cinquante. Pourtant, au fil de ses rencontres et de son enquête sur le passé de sa mère et les circonstances de sa mort (fuyez le naturel...), Mona doit se rendre à l'évidence : une menace plane sur Wink et ses étranges habitants. Sera-t-elle vraiment de taille à affronter les forces occultes à l'oeuvre dans ce lieu hors d'Amérique ? « Un merveilleux cadeau pour les fans de Stephen King et Neil Gaiman. » Library Journal

Elsewhere by Richard Russo Book Summary:

A Washington Post Notable Work of Nonfiction An NPR Best Book of 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Richard Russo turns to memoir in this hilarious and bittersweet account of his lifelong bond with his high-strung, spirited mother—and the small town she spent her life trying to escape. Anyone familiar with Russo’s novels will recognize Gloversville—once famous for producing nine out of ten dress gloves in the United States. By the time Rick was born, ladies had stopped wearing gloves and Gloversville was on its way out. Jean Russo instilled in her son her dream of a better life elsewhere, a dream that prompted her to follow him across the country when he went to college. Their adventures and tribulations on that road trip were a preview of the hold his mother would continue to have on him as she kept trying desperately to change her life. Recounted with a clear-eyed mix of regret, nostalgia, and love, Elsewhere is a stirring tribute to the tenacious grip of the past.

Drinking Coffee Elsewhere

Elsewhere Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Drinking Coffee Elsewhere by ZZ Packer Book Summary:

Chosen by John Updike as a Today Show Book Club Pick. Already an award-winning writer, ZZ Packer now shares with us her debut, Drinking Coffee Elsewhere. Her impressive range and talent are abundantly evident: Packer dazzles with her command of language, surprising and delighting us with unexpected turns and indelible images, as she takes us into the lives of characters on the periphery, unsure of where they belong. We meet a Brownie troop of black girls who are confronted with a troop of white girls; a young man who goes with his father to the Million Man March and must decides where his allegiance lies; an international group of drifters in Japan, who are starving, unable to find work; a girl in a Baltimore ghetto who has dreams of the larger world she has seen only on the screens in the television store nearby, where the Lithuanian shopkeeper holds out hope for attaining his own American Dream. With penetrating insight that belies her youth—she was only nineteen years old when Seventeen magazine printed her first published story—ZZ Packer helps us see the world with a clearer vision. Drinking Coffee Elsewhere is a striking performance—fresh, versatile, and captivating. It introduces us to an arresting and unforgettable new voice.

Elsewhere by T. S. Herfkens Book Summary:

Elsewhere is a collection for those that read poems – and for those that think they don't. From the all-too-real to fantastical places outside of what most of us think is reality (and especially where that line blurs), it is a ride unlike anything seen in the genre today. Classic poetic forms included? Check. Complete disregard for forms included? Check. Forms that are the author's invention included? But of course. Accessible to all, Elsewhere redefines modern poetry by redefining conventional reality, letting the readers decide what is and what isn't, and giving them the freedom to believe. This is the poetry your writing teachers warned you about. Come in. Stay as long as you wish. You may not want to leave.

Elsewhere by Gyrdir Eliasson,Frode Grytten,Micheal O Conghaile,Danielle Picard,Mehmet Zaman Saclioglu ,Ingo Schulze,Roman Simic,Jean Sprackland,Olga Tokarczuk,Mirja Unge Book Summary:

What do we mean by small town? How has this innocuous term – one up from ‘village’, a couple down from ‘city’ – come to function as a pejorative? Pressed to describe what the phrase ‘small town’ conjures up, we’d be hard pushed to say anything positive: closed-minded; petty; provincial; parochial. On a broad European canvas, however, the rich traditions of short story writing challenge these preconceptions. The stories collected here are neither narrow-minded nor petty, nor do the minds of their protagonists contract to fit their environment. In Germany, a house-husband is slowly sent over the edge by his over-achieving neighbours. In the town of Odda in Norway, a middle-aged Morrissey fan has a matter of hours to find a girlfriend so his ailing mother can die in peace. It’s the small gestures – a white lie, the turning of a blind eye, a small kindness or a secret kept – that allow the characters of these communities to survive, to breathe easily within the seemingly tight strictures life there can impose. It’s how we do things round here...

The Elsewhere Community

The Elsewhere Community by Hugh Kenner Book Summary:

Acclaimed literary critic Hugh Kenner examines Western culture's insatiable need for stimulation encountered elsewhere - from the eighteenth century's Grand Tour, to the self-imposed exile of modernist writers, to the disembodied global journeys the Internet avails us today. Kenner brings to this fascinating study knowledge of a wide array of disciplines. Hugh Kenner has written on topics ranging from geodesic domes to Bugs Bunny, but is perhaps best known for The Pound Era, his definitive study of Ezra Pound's life and work.

Elsewhere, U.S.A. by Dalton Conley Book Summary:

Over the past three decades, our daily lives have changed slowly but dramatically. Boundaries between leisure and work, public space and private space, and home and office have blurred and become permeable. In Elsewhere, U.S.A., acclaimed sociologist Dalton Conley connects our day-to-day experiences with occasionally overlooked sociological changes, from women’s increasing participation in the labor force to rising economic inequality among successful professionals. In doing so, he provides us with an X-ray view of our new social reality. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Intelligence Elsewhere

Elsewhere Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Intelligence Elsewhere by Philip H. J. Davies,Kristian C. Gustafson Book Summary:

Spying, the “world’s second oldest profession,” is hardly limited to the traditional great power countries. Intelligence Elsewhere, nevertheless, is the first scholarly volume to deal exclusively with the comparative study of national intelligence outside of the anglosphere and European mainstream. Past studies of intelligence and counterintelligence have tended to focus on countries such as the United States, Great Britain, and Russia, as well as, to a lesser extent, Canada, Australia, France, and Germany. This volume examines the deep historical and cultural origins of intelligence in several countries of critical importance today: India, China, the Arab world, and indeed, Russia, the latter examined from a fresh perspective. The authors then delve into modern intelligence practice in countries with organizations significantly different from the mainstream: Iran, Pakistan, Japan, Finland, Sweden, Indonesia, Argentina, and Ghana. With contributions by leading intelligence experts for each country, the chapters give the reader important insights into intelligence culture, current practice, and security sector reform. As the world morphs into an increasingly multi-polar system, it is more important than ever to understand the national intelligence systems of rising powers and regional powers that differ significantly from those of the US, its NATO allies, and its traditional opponents. This fascinating book shines new light into intelligence practices in regions that, until now, have eluded our understanding.

Notes from Elsewhere

Elsewhere Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Notes from Elsewhere by Monique Layton Book Summary:

Notes from Elsewhere: Travel and Other Matters follows author Monique Laton, a trained anthropologist, through some of life’s familiar experiences: introduction to new cultures, the pitfalls of language, regret for the past, and various types of travel. She shares her experiences and adventures in some of the planet’s most interesting places in colorful detail. From her childhood in Morocco to a time tinged with loneliness and isolation as she worked in mental hospitals and prisons, she kept an open mind and heart. She survived both the artificial, ephemeral culture of international conferences and attempts to create a semblance of a normal life while living abroad. As an academic, Layton confronts the problems of cultural disconnection as they occur in life and travel and briefly considers what the future might hold for the elderly. As an anthropologist, she is able to provide context and insight into everyday occurrences. As an immigrant, she draws on her own experience to describe the staggered stages of assimilation. “Common to all travels, journeys, voyages, and sojourns is the search for the familiar. This search is Monique Layton’s major contribution. Elsewhere, for her, is caught in a web of memory, a rich mélange of philosophical musings and literary allusions. Her text is part ethnography and part gentle mockery as if surprised by her own presence in her varying realities. All this adds up to considerable reading pleasure.” —Elvi Whittaker, PhD, LlD, professor emerita, University of British Columbia; author of A Baltic Odyssey, The Mainland Haole, and The Silent Dialogue
