Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Alice Munro’s Miraculous Art is a collection of sixteen original essays on Nobel laureate Alice Munro’s writings. The volume covers the entirety of Munro’s career, from the first stories she published in the early 1950s as an undergraduate at the University of Western Ontario to her final books. It offers an enlightening range of approaches and interpretive strategies, and provides many new perspectives, reconsidered positions and analyses that will enhance the reading, teaching, and appreciation of Munro’s remarkable—indeed miraculous—work. Following the editors’ introduction—which surveys Munro’s recurrent themes, explains the design of the book, and summarizes each contribution—Munro biographer Robert Thacker contributes a substantial bio-critical introduction to her career. The book is then divided into three sections, focusing on Munro’s characteristic forms, themes, and most notable literary effects.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is the book about one of the world’s great authors, Alice Munro, which shows how her life and her stories intertwine. For almost thirty years Robert Thacker has been researching this book, steeping himself in Alice Munro’s life and work, working with her co-operation to make it complete. The result is a feast of information for Alice Munro’s admirers everywhere. By following “the parallel tracks” of Alice Munro’s life and Alice Munro’s texts, he gives a thorough and revealing account of both her life and work. “There is always a starting point in reality,” she once said of her stories, and this book reveals just how often her stories spring from her life. The book is chronological, starting with her pioneer ancestors, but with special attention paid to her parents and to her early days growing up poor in Wingham. Then all of her life stages — the marriage to Jim Munro, the move to Vancouver, then to Victoria to start the bookstore, the three daughters, the divorce, the return to Huron County, and the new life with Gerry Fremlin — leading to the triumphs as, story by story, book by book, she gains fame around the world, until rumours of a Nobel Prize circulate . . .

From her ancestors' view from Edinburgh's Castle Rock in the eighteenth century to her parents' thwarted ambitions in Ontario, and her own awakening in 1950s Canada, Munro effortlessly weaves fact and myth to create an epic story of past and present, proving that fiction has much to tell us about life.

This book was released on 2010-07 with total page 234 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book describes a man's late life journey to Spiritual Awakeness and Unwavering Forgiveness. In fact, forgiveness changed the book's unfolding during the writing of it. The author began the book's writing with the desire to review a memory troubled life in a way that some degree of peace could be found within it. Forgiveness absolutely began to take over the book very early; forgiveness became the way of seeing the life rather than an end result. The author learned that forgiveness is not only cleansing and healing in retrospective, it completely changes the way we look at things. For the author, a lifetime previously perceived largely in ugliness was transformed into beauty. Prior unsavory scenes took their true places within auras of ignorance; eyes of forgiveness exposed ignorance as the true culprit in all unhappiness. Thus, things previously seen in contempt and blame became innocent of all charges. The author found total, Unwavering Forgiveness and Universal Love, gateways to God Consciousness.

Book excerpt: A young officer in dingy Confederate gray rode slowly on a powerful bay horse through a forest of oak. It was a noble woodland, clear of undergrowth, the fine trees standing in rows, like those of a park. They were bare of leaves but the winter had been mild so far, and a carpet of short grass, yet green, covered the ground. To the rider's right flowed a small river of clear water, one of the beautiful streams of the great Virginia valleys.

Book excerpt: The book offers a new approach to the study of Alice Munro's fiction. Its innovative quality consists in juxtaposing a variety of literary analyses of selected stories with two other ways of looking at her fiction: the perspectives of film adaptation and of pedagogy. The book is divided into three parts which mirror the key words in the title: understanding, adapting and teaching. Part One consists of four articles on various aspects of Munro's short fiction from a literary perspective. Part Two - four essays - addresses editing and film adaptations of Munro's stories (both television and feature films). Part Three consists of an essay on didactic aspects of Munro's fiction and of several interviews with teachers of Canadian literature who have included stories by Munro in their syllabi.

Download PDF Pulp Graffiti Book by Wilbert Quick Full eBook and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2006-03-14 with total page 180 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Pulp Graffiti is a fresh and humorous combination of karma, the butterfly effect, and chaos theory that will compel you to ask, "Would the dancing virgin have jumped off the bridge if Roger hadn't farted." Better yet, what would have been the consequences of Cherry Sue Brown keeping her panties on instead of ending up wearing Cheryl Thompson's panties with the three-girl, four-boy, multipartner DNA collection on them? This comic tragedy of Cherry Sue's fall combines with the tragic comedy of Billy Gale's less-than-immaculate conception to explain why bad things happen to good people. Billy Gale just wants to know who his father is. His innocent search and consequential visit with Michael Bell, jolts this old flame of his late mother into a sudden midlife crisis that leads to a memory lane expos of the "me" generation and an old-world quest for the missing "something more" Michael later wishes he had less of. Whimsical indictment of the human need for hedonistic pleasure at the expense of others, is the common thread in fifteen connected vignettes of Pulp Graffiti that examine the intertwined lives of a dozen abnormally socially maladjusted young people living in the last quarter of the twentieth century.
