Download PDF The Radical Twenties Book by John Lucas Full eBook and published by Rutgers University Press. This book was released on 1999 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Studies writers from the 1920s with regard to their political radicalism. Draws on the works of D. H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Townsend Warner, and Patrick Hamilton, among others, to identify the decade as a time of both political activism and of deliberately transgressive behavior, particularly among women. Meets head-on the argument of earlier commentators who take for granted the post-war decade as defined by cynicism and hedonism, and looks at the work and lifestyles of those determined to find ways out of despair.

Download PDF New Orleans in the Twenties Book by Widmer, Mary Lou Full eBook and published by Pelican Publishing. This book was released on with total page 216 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It was a decade of flappers, Prohibition, and unprecedented prosperity that abruptly ended with the crash of '29. In New Orleans, steamships lined the wharves, vaudeville gave way to "talkies," and William Faulkner's Sherwood Anderson and Other Famous Creoles was the first book produced by a new publisher called Pelican Publishing Company. Mary Lou Widmer's fourth retrospect of the city reminisces about how New Orleans welcomed the economic growth of the postwar twenties in its own special way. The Crescent City celebrated this prosperity, giving birth to jazz halls in the Vieux Carrï¿½ and launching the careers of musicians like Louis Armstrong. It was the most progressive era in the city's history since before the Civil War. From politics to homelife there is hardly an aspect of life in the twenties Widmer does not touch upon. A full chapter is devoted to how the city known for Bourbon Street and Mardi Gras reacted to Prohibition. Indoor plumbing and electric lights became the standard in homes throughout the city. Transportation opened up new neighborhoods as cars became status symbols and the streetcar system took riders to every neighborhood in the city. Mary Lou Widmer, a native of New Orleans, is former president of the South Louisiana Chapter of Romance Writers of America. She has written several novels set in New Orleans. A certified descendant of settlers in the area prior to the Louisiana Purchase, she is a member of the Louisiana Colonials and the Daughters of 1812. She is also the author of New Orleans in the Thirties, New Orleans in the Forties, and New Orleans in the Fifties, all published by Pelican.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In a realm between life and death, in a place that human beings have no idea exists, is the Time Continent. Unbeknownst to humankind, the Time Continent is where a select group of disembodied souls spend their afterlife, dictating the course of human events throughout history. It is the inhabitants of the Time Continent who are responsible over much of the lives and deaths on Earth… One such soul, Pastool Logan, once powerful committee head of Past Events, stands trial. In an act of desperation to find out who he was and where he came from while alive, Logan broke protocol, causing the deaths of hundreds and has been condemned to eternity in a Time Dungeon. When a dear friend visits him in the dungeon, Logan recounts the course of events that led up to his crime and draws his friend into a world of deception, violence, beauty and miraculous connections in his search for identity. Little does he know that one mysterious woman holds the answers he seeks. Reverse Chronicles is an exploration of the deepest connections between human beings and of the harrowing issue that plagues all humanity, from the mightiest nation down to the smallest individual: the issue of power over weakness and the struggle to define what real strength truly is.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women don’t get visited by ghosts. Or do they? When the spirit of Lara’s great-aunt Sadie—a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance—mysteriously appears, she has one request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, because Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadie’s necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different “twenties” girls learn some surprising truths from and about each other. Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsella’s books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.

Download PDF Arthur Jeffress Book by Gill Hedley Full eBook and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2020-04-02 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Arthur Jeffress was an art dealer and collector from a Virginian family who bequeathed his “subversive little collection” (Derek Hill) to Tate and Southampton City Art Gallery on his suicide in 1961. That suicide, a result of his expulsion from Venice, has been the subject of speculation in many memoirs. Gill Hedley's biography of Jeffress has benefited from access to many hundreds of unpublished letters written between Jeffress and Robert Melville, who ran Jeffress' own gallery from 1955-1961. The letters were written largely while Jeffress was in Venice and reveal a vivid picture of the London gallery world as well as frank details of artists, collectors and the definitive story of his suicide. Previously unpublished research reveals new information about the lives of Jeffress' lover John Deakin, his business partner Erica Brausen, the French photographer André Ostier and Henry Clifford, and the way in which all of them influenced Jeffress' first steps as a collector from the 1930s onwards.
Download PDF Girlish Book by Lara Lillibridge Full eBook and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2018-04-03 with total page 392 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An honest, unfiltered memoir about a girl with an unconventional family. “The story everyone wants to hear isn’t the story I want to tell.” Lara Lillibridge grew up with two moms—an experience that shaped and scarred her at the same time. Told from the perspective of “Girl,” Lillibridge’s memoir is the no-holds-barred account of childhood in an atypical household. Personally less concerned with her mother’s sexuality and more with how she fits into a world both disturbed and obsessed with it, Girl finds that, in other people’s eyes, “The most interesting thing about me is not about me at all; it is about my parents.” It won’t be long before readers realize that “unconventional” barely scratches the surface. In the early years, Girl’s feminist mother reluctantly allows her to play with her favorite Barbies while her stepmother refuses to comfort her when she wakes up from nightmares. She goes skinny dipping on family vacations in upstate New York and kisses all the boys at church. Girl and her brother travel four thousand miles—unaccompanied—to visit their father in rural Alaska, where they sleep in a locked cabin without running water, telephone, or electricity. Raised to be a free spirit by norm-defying parents, Girl has to define her own boundaries as she tries to fit into heteronormative suburban life, all while navigating her mother’s expectations, her stepmother’s mental illness, and her father’s serial divorces. Lillibridge bravely tells her own story and offers a unique perspective. At times humorous and pithy while cringe-worthy and heartbreaking at others, Girlish is a human story that challenges readers to reevaluate their own lives and motivations.

Download PDF Adversaries of Dance Book by Ann Louise Wagner Full eBook and published by University of Illinois Press. This book was released on 1997 with total page 472 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Whether in the private parlor, public hall, commercial "dance palace," or sleazy dive, dance has long been opposed by those who viewed it as immoral--more precisely as being a danger to the purity of those who practiced it, particularly women. In Adversaries of Dance, Ann Wagner presents a major study of opposition to dance over a period of four centuries in what is now the United States. Wagner bases her work on the thesis that the tradition of opposition to dance "derived from white, male, Protestant clergy and evangelists who argued from a narrow and selective interpretation of biblical passages," and that the opposition thrived when denominational dogma held greater power over people's lives and when women's social roles were strictly limited. Central to Wagner's work, which will be welcomed by scholars of both religion and dance, are issues of gender, race, and socioeconomic status. "There are no other works that even begin to approach this definitive accomplishment." --Amanda Porterfield, author of Female Piety in Puritan New England
Download PDF Beach Time Book by Charles Mitchell Full eBook and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2005-02 with total page 457 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Beach Time is a powerful collection of stories weaving a tapestry of the shore as a place of reflection, a sanctuary for addressing life's challenges and opportunities, and as a point of departure for life's many journeys. Whether finding romance among the canals and lanes of magical Venice, facing life, death, and ghosts along the Carolina coasts, honeymooning in the south of Portugal, or solving mysteries in the Greek isles, the stories will hold your interest across the miles and years. Additional tales speak to youth's desire to find direction in life, whether in the beach towns of Florida, at a Buddhist shine on Cheju Island, Korea, or along the North Shore of Oahu. Darker tales reveal how outcasts prey upon the young or confused in the chaos of the beach. Beach Time (by the author of Hues of Tokyo) can be read straight through, engaging the themes linking the stories, or each story can be cherished individually as you travel to multiple shores in the US, Asia, and Europe-to be entertained by whimsical tales that both amuse and provoke deep thought about life's relationship with that in-between space where the land meets the sea and the sky.
