Narratives of place link people and geographic location with a cultural imaginary through literature and visual narration. Contemporary literature and film often frame narratives with specific geographic locations, which saturate the narrative with cultural meanings in relation to natural and man-made landscapes. This interdisciplinary collection seeks to interrogate such connections to probe how place is narrativized in literature and film. Utilizing close readings of specific filmic and literary texts, all chapters serve to tease out cultural and historical meanings in respect of human engagement with landscapes. Always mindful of national, cultural and topographical specificity, the book is structured around five core themes: Contested Histories of Place; Environmental Landscapes; Cityscapes; The Social Construction of Place; and Landscapes of Belonging.

This book is about... well... life's little annoyances like: a garden hose with a mind of its own; hermetically sealed ketchup packets; TVs and VCRs that require an engineering degree to operate; motorway construction that stretches to the far horizon; voice mail systems that never, EVER, let you speak to a person... Arthur Cook takes a humorous look at these and many, many other little things that bother, frustrate, irk, peeve, rile, stress -- in other words, annoy us to the brink of insanity!
