Download PDF Romance Book by Dana Percec Full eBook and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2012-03-15 with total page 260 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Romance: The History of a Genre is a collection of essays devoted to the highly popular and no less controversial genre of romance. A genre often disregarded for its stereotypical language, shallow characters, and predictable plots, dismissed as “women’s” fiction, accused of conventionalism, romance is a genre which, after ups and downs in its millennial history, is now holding a leading position on the international bookselling market. This achievement has also been possible with the endorsement of contemporary media and modern technology, cinema, television, the Internet, etc. Much has been written in both traditional and more recent literary theory about the origins and evolution of the early forms of romance, from the classical Antiquity, through the Middle Ages, and into the Renaissance and early modernity in Western Europe. A corpus, which is becoming more and more substantial today, is already available about the gendered status of contemporary romance, both in terms of the writing ethos and in terms of reader response, with theories coming from the combined areas of feminism, social sciences, and psychoanalysis. The aim of the present volume is that of noting the fluid character of the genre, with the great number of subcategories, mixed and hybrid, bringing evidence to the polymorphous nature of contemporary popular culture. This book proposes, in four parts and twelve chapters, a fascinating and multifaceted journey into the history, substance and geography of romance. From its origins to the latest developments, from its subgenres to its features, from print to film, from television to Facebook, romance comes in various shapes and colours, which the reader can fully explore. The journey in the world of romance takes the reader from familiar corners to less familiar ones: from North America, Great Britain, Romania, or Turkey, to India or South Africa. The numerous approaches to romance generate diverse data, varied analytical frameworks and interesting, fresh and solidly grounded findings.
Download PDF Fangtastic Book by Lucienne Diver Full eBook and published by Llewellyn Worldwide. This book was released on 2012-01-08 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Can you work for the Feds and still be fabulous? When “undercover” involves infiltrating a lair of nightclub poser vamps killing people in Florida (like, real murderers!), the only way to blend in is to stand out. The job certainly has its upside: five-alarm hotties, wicked fashion tips from the steampunk crowd, and partnering with my BFF Marcy and my gorgeous, genius boyfriend Bobby. And it helps to have a team behind me when facing my deadliest mission yet, where we might not actually be the scariest things to go bump in the night. Perks of this assignment: I get to spend a lot of time in clubs and my undercover outfit is smoking hot, with no VPL (visible panty lines for those playing along at home). Downside of this assignment: I have to offer Bobby to the killers as bait! PRAISE for Fangtastic, by Lucienne Diver: “Gina never fails to please, as she strides down the runway of afterlife with just the right mix of humor, make-up advice, youthful lust that never crosses the line, and a kung-fu style all her own. [Fangtastic] doesn’t miss a beat.”—KIRKUS REVIEWS "Gina has a biting, sarcastic voice that makes the Vamped books quick and entertaining reads."—VOYA "Diver spins an action-packed story that is filled with humor. Gina is a sassy heroine who tackles issues and challenges with proper vampire style."—SCHOOL LIBARY JOURNAL "A welcome lighthearted departure from gloomy vampire romance."—BOOKLIST
