The Strange Truth about Us

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Strange Truth about Us by Marion Alice Coburn Farrant Book Summary:

"Anthropologist of the absurd" and "brave iconoclast," M.A.C. Farrant positively bristles in this three-part novel-length work of prose fragments, snippets, questions, speculations, and meditations, by turns philosophical, dark, comedic, and lyrical in its attempts to imagine a multitude of possible futures for our accelerated age. It offers her readers nothing less than The Strange Truth About Us. M.A.C. Farrant is the acclaimed author of nine previous collections of satirical and humourous short fiction, and two works of non-fiction. Her work is infused with acerbic wit and innovation, and her surrealistic visions of everyday life are startlingly precise.

The Strange Career of Porgy and Bess

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Strange Career of Porgy and Bess by Ellen Noonan Book Summary:

Created by George Gershwin and DuBose Heyward and sung by generations of black performers, Porgy and Bess has been both embraced and reviled since its debut in 1935. In this comprehensive account, Ellen Noonan examines the opera's long history of invention and reinvention as a barometer of twentieth-century American expectations about race, culture, and the struggle for equality. In its surprising endurance lies a myriad of local, national, and international stories. For black performers and commentators, Porgy and Bess was a nexus for debates about cultural representation and racial uplift. White producers, critics, and even audiences spun revealing racial narratives around the show, initially in an attempt to demonstrate its authenticity and later to keep it from becoming discredited or irrelevant. Expertly weaving together the wide-ranging debates over the original novel, Porgy, and its adaptations on stage and film with a history of its intimate ties to Charleston, The Strange Career of "Porgy and Bess" uncovers the complexities behind one of our nation's most long-lived cultural touchstones.

The Great Happiness

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Great Happiness by M. A. C. Farrant Book Summary:

A delightful collection of seventy miniature fictions and comics riffing on the theme of happiness, The Great Happiness offers a series of lively antidotes to the current climate of doom. Some of the book's miniatures are narratives with a twist, others are imaginative flights, such as the recently dead experimental novelist "sitting in" on the obituary-writing session convened by her husband, or the woman who rescues an Atlantic lobster from her local Save-On-Foods and ships it to Prince Edward Island to be released back into the ocean. The miniatures of The Great Happiness are "fictions that think," each one a combination of narrative, prose poem, and jest. The Great Happiness is the third part in M.A.C. Farrant's trilogy of miniature fiction published by Talonbooks, preceded by The World Afloat, winner of the City of Victoria Butler Book Prize, and The Days, nominated for the City of Victoria Butler Book Prize and the ReLit Award.

The Days

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Days by M. A. C. Farrant Book Summary:

It s hard to worry about the future when you re laughing at the hilarious absurdity of daily life. The days we live go by like slugs eating their way through leaves; everything changes, yet nothing changes, and the years soon accumulate. Who doesn t read their daily horoscope, searching for guidance about what s to come, how to live? What is life, but ordinary and special days, time passing, humour, sex, death, and love (making it all bearable)? All these are repeated gestures that run through The Days, a kind of absurdist guidebook made up of ninety unconventional, very short stories collected in three tight sections. This is fiction that thinks, fiction that cuts to the chase, told with Farrant s trademark humour and acerbic wit. Her miniatures gracefully articulate the contemporary zeitgeist: anxiety about the future coupled with absurd mundanity. Somehow, always, Farrant captures the moments that buoy us up, crystallizing the experiences keeping us from being overwhelmed while calling our attention to overwhelming truths. Let yourself be excited and delighted. Farrant s artfully spare stories averaging a couple of paragraphs each offer enough food for thought (and mood) to keep you going for months. Dip in occasionally to be reminded of the strangeness of us, or read from beginning to end and immerse yourself in a slightly skewed version of reality one in which people are frank and the world is unforgiving as it shimmers like light on water, sometimes blinding, always dazzling."

A Book of Good Medicine

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Book of Good Medicine by Arlyn L. Clary Book Summary:

A persons attitude about him or her self is an important factor in health and well being. Faith and prayer are strong elements of what we think life is about. We are not self-sufficient but are dependent on God and other people. I suppose nothing underlines this truth more than an illness, be it a headache or worse. It is important to seek the medicine of comfort and inspiration. It is to such purpose that this book is dedicated. This book may serve well as a book of prayer and devotion for the general reader. This is not to overlook the possibility that it might serve as a Pastoral Care tool as well.

Emptiness

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Emptiness by David Arthur Auten Book Summary:

Emptiness is a strange phenomenon that haunts us in many ways. Most of us have felt empty at one time or another, though we don't often talk about it. We have a sense that something is missing in life. This absence extends beyond human experience to the physical world. As contemporary science has revealed to us on both a macroscopic and subatomic level, curiously, the vast majority of the universe is composed mostly of nothing but empty space. Emptiness is "abundant" and beckons for our attention. Drawing on the Judeo-Christian wisdom of the Bible, in conversation with Eastern and Celtic thought, David Arthur Auten offers us an eye-opening and profoundly practical examination of the much neglected gift of absence. Nothing, ironically, turns out to be endlessly fascinating and significant.

The Law of the Other

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Law of the Other by Marianne Constable Book Summary:

The Law of the Other is an account of the English doctrine of the "mixed jury". Constable's excavation of the historical, rhetorical, and theoretical foundations of modern law recasts our legal and sociological understandings of the American jury and our contemporary conceptions of law, citizenship, and truth. The "mixed jury" doctrine allowed resident foreigners to have law suits against English natives tried before juries composed half of natives and half of aliens like themselves. As she traces the transformations in this doctrine from the Middle Ages to its abolition in 1870, Constable also reveals the emergence of a world where law rooted in actual practices and customs of communities is replaced by law determined by officials, where juries no longer strive to speak the truth but to ascertain the facts.

Truth to Power

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Truth to Power by Robert Hutchings,Gregory F. Treverton Book Summary:

Truth to Power, the first-ever history of the U.S. National Intelligence Council (NIC), is told through the reflections of its eight Chairs in the period from the end of the Cold War until 2017. Co-editors Robert Hutchings and Gregory Treverton add a substantial introduction placing the NIC in its historical context going all the way back to the Board of National Estimates in the 1940s, as well as a concluding chapter that highlights key themes and judgments. This historic mission of this remarkable but little-known organization, now forty years old, is strategic intelligence assessment in service of senior American foreign policymakers. Its signature inside products, National Intelligence Estimates, are now accompanied by the NIC's every-four-years Global Trends. Unclassified, Global Trends has become a noted NIC brand, its release awaited by officials, academics and private sector managers around the world. Truth to Power tracks the NIC's role in providing strategic analysis on every major foreign policy issue confronting the United States during this consequential period. Chapters provide insider insights on the Balkan wars of the 1990s, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003, the nuclear weapons programs in Iran and North Korea, upheaval in the Middle East including the rise and fall of the Islamic State, the rise of China, and the Russia's turn toward aggression under Vladimir Putin. The book also assesses the NIC's newly expanded role in direct support to meetings of the National Security Council as well as its longstanding role in producing longer-range strategic intelligence.

Infinite Moons, Infinite Suns

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Infinite Moons, Infinite Suns by Gabriella Bianco,Robert Steve Bingham Book Summary:

In this precious poetic autobiography, Gabriella Bianco not only tells the final hour of an existencethat of her son Robert Steve but also the loss of a great love, in a world full of absences. Gabriella Bianco challenges her destiny, inviting us to the caducity of all that surrounds usfeelings, love, life and even the most precious gift, a son. In the loving relation not only with language and poetry, but also with the drama of life, Bianco needs to reveal a secrether sons deathand share it with her sons father, as a moral and absolute duty. From the point of view of the truth and the death of a child, this text is sacred, although, refusing to take the place of the victim under the circumstances, Bianco knowslike all tragic heroes that nothing different would have been possible with her destiny. This valuable literary narration reaches a deeply dramatic effect, as it is so painfully connected to a vital experience. The story always speaks about love, charging this word with immense emotion, whispering words in their agonizing beauty. Bianco tells us what she knows about herself and about the facts, digging in her own soul, with perplexity and nostalgia. In this story, the past is a split mirror, where nothing turned out to be the same. Here the theme of love has the marks of time and renunciation, the mark of destiny. In this narration, Bianco reaches a balance of great beauty, between said and unspoken words, between suggested and explicit thoughts, in a great richness of nuances, when the text turns unstable, facing the emotions stirred up by this testimony.

Being and Worth

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Being and Worth by Andrew Collier Book Summary:

Being and Worth extends recent depth-realist philosophy to the question of values. It argues that beings both in the natural and human worlds have worth in themselves, whether we recognise it or not. This view is defended through and account of the human mind as essentially concerned with that of which it is independent. Conclusions follow both for environmental ethics - that natural beings should be valued for themselves, not just for their use to us - and for justice in the human world, based on the idea that humans are unique and equal in respect of 'having a life to live'.

Virginia at War, 1865

The Strange Truth About Us A Novel Of Absence [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Virginia at War, 1865 by William C. Davis,James I. Robertson Book Summary:

By January 1865, most of Virginia's schools were closed, many newspapers had ceased publication, businesses suffered, and food was scarce. Having endured major defeats on their home soil and the loss of much of the state's territory to the Union army, Virginia's Confederate soldiers began to desert at higher rates than at any other time in the war, returning home to provide their families with whatever assistance they could muster. It was a dark year for Virginia. Virginia at War, 1865 closely examines the end of the Civil War in the Old Dominion, delivering a striking depiction of a state ravaged by violence and destruction. In the final volume of the Virginia at War series, editors William C. Davis and James I. Robertson Jr. have once again assembled an impressive collection of essays covering topics that include land operations, women and families, wartime economy, music and entertainment, the demobilization of Lee's army, and the war's aftermath. The volume ends with the final installment of Judith Brockenbrough McGuire's popular and important Diary of a Southern Refugee during the War. Like the previous four volumes in the series, Virginia at War, 1865 provides valuable insights into the devastating effects of the war on citizens across the state.
