Stellt euch vor, Robert Pattinson taucht an eurer Haustür auf und will euch mit Eiscreme füttern, aber ihr hattet nie Interesse daran, die Twilight-Filme zu sehen. Eure Mitbewohnerin und jede andere Frau in der Nachbarschaft werden fast ohnmächtig, aber irgendwie fühlt ihr euch zu dem Typen einfach nicht hingezogen. So ähnlich ergeht es auch Chloe Winters. Gezeichnet von einer schweren Kindheit war sie gezwungen ihr Leben sehr pragmatisch anzugehen, sie schlägt sich als Studentin in Albuquerque durch und gehört nicht zu den Leuten, die an Märchen glauben. Eines Tages aber kommt Hollywood-Superstar Jason Vanderholt zurück in seine Heimatstadt Albuquerque um dort einen Film zu drehen. Er entschließt sich, bei den Statisten vorbeizuschauen, zu denen auch Chloe gehört. Die sieht in dem Schauspieler, der bei jeder anderen Frau die Knie weich werden lässt, aber nicht gerade ihren Traummann. Sie nimmt nur einen Typen mit einem seltsamen Job und eigener Entourage wahr, der sie zweifellos in fünf Minuten wieder vergessen haben wird. Aber Jason sieht in ihr mehr als nur ein weiteres hübsches Gesicht. Chloe kommt ihm bekannt vor und er hat eine Menge Fragen an sie, die sie lieber nicht beantworten möchte. Diese ganze Geschichte ist einfach nicht ihr Märchen. Alle Teile der "Nicht mein Märchen" - Reihe: 1. Nicht mein Märchen (Buch 1) 2. Prinzessin in Not (Buch 2) 3. Break it Up (Spin-off) 4.

The Novel An Alternative History 1600 1800

Winner of the Christian Gauss Award for excellence in literary scholarship from the Phi Beta Kappa Society Having excavated the world's earliest novels in his previous book, literary historian Steven Moore explores in this sequel the remarkable flowering of the novel between the years 1600 and 1800-from Don Quixote to America's first big novel, an homage to Cervantes entitled Modern Chivalry. This is the period of such classic novels as Tom Jones, Candide, and Dangerous Liaisons, but beyond the dozen or so recognized classics there are hundreds of other interesting novels that appeared then, known only to specialists: Spanish picaresques, French heroic romances, massive Chinese novels, Japanese graphic novels, eccentric English novels, and the earliest American novels. These minor novels are not only interesting in their own right, but also provide the context needed to appreciate why the major novels were major breakthroughs. The novel experienced an explosive growth spurt during these centuries as novelists experimented with different forms and genres: epistolary novels, romances, Gothic thrillers, novels in verse, parodies, science fiction, episodic road trips, and family sagas, along with quirky, unclassifiable experiments in fiction that resemble contemporary, avant-garde works. As in his previous volume, Moore privileges the innovators and outriders, those who kept the novel novel. In the most comprehensive history of this period ever written, Moore examines over 400 novels from around the world in a lively style that is as entertaining as it is informative. Though written for a general audience, The Novel, An Alternative History also provides the scholarly apparatus required by the serious student of the period. This sequel, like its predecessor, is a "zestfully encyclopedic, avidly opinionated, and dazzlingly fresh history of the most 'elastic' of literary formsÂ?? (Booklist).

Legendary Hawai I And The Politics Of Place

Hawaiian legends figure greatly in the image of tropical paradise that has come to represent Hawai'i in popular imagination. But what are we buying into when we read these stories as texts in English-language translations? Cristina Bacchilega poses this question in her examination of the way these stories have been adapted to produce a legendary Hawai'i primarily for non-Hawaiian readers or other audiences. With an understanding of tradition that foregrounds history and change, Bacchilega examines how, following the 1898 annexation of Hawai'i by the United States, the publication of Hawaiian legends in English delegitimized indigenous narratives and traditions and at the same time constructed them as representative of Hawaiian culture. Hawaiian mo'olelo were translated in popular and scholarly English-language publications to market a new cultural product: a space constructed primarily for Euro-Americans as something simultaneously exotic and primitive and beautiful and welcoming. To analyze this representation of Hawaiian traditions, place, and genre, Bacchilega focuses on translation across languages, cultures, and media; on photography, as the technology that contributed to the visual formation of a westernized image of Hawai'i; and on tourism as determining postannexation economic and ideological machinery. In a book with interdisciplinary appeal, Bacchilega demonstrates both how the myth of legendary Hawai'i emerged and how this vision can be unmade and reimagined.
