Book excerpt: Three million dollars in share certificates have been stolen from a Dominican priory, and VI Warshawski doesn't want to find out why. Aust Rosa, the priory's treasurer, wants her on the case, and VI has never forgiven Rosa for something she did a long time ago. But VI changes her mind and the case changes its course when she visits the priory. Suddenly everyone - her aunt, the FBI, and a mysterious phone caller threatening to pour acid on VI's beautiful eyes - tells her to let sleeping dogs lie. Then one of VI's dearest friends is murdered . . . With her customary skill and with the help of a few stiff drinks, VI plunges into the affair. She needs all her wit, ingenuity and femininity, as well as her gun-handling and karate-chopping skills.

Book Theory and Practice of Classic Detective Fiction

Download or read book Theory and Practice of Classic Detective Fiction written by Jerome H. Delamater and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 1997-10-28 with total page 221 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Combining theoretical and practical approaches, this collection of essays explores classic detective fiction from a variety of contemporary viewpoints. Among the diverse perspectives are those which interrogate the way the genre reflects important social and cultural attitudes, contributes to a reader's ability to adapt to the challenges of daily life, and provides alternate takes on the role of the detective as an investigator and arbiter of truth. Part I looks at the nature of and the audience for detective fiction, as well as at the genre as a literary form. This section includes an inquiry into the role of the detective; an application of object-relations psychology to the genre; and analyses of recent literary criticism positing that traditional detective fiction contained the seeds of its own subversion. Part II applies a variety of theoretical positions to Agatha Christie and her heirs in the British ratiocinative tradition. A concluding essay positions the genre within the middle-class traditions of the novel since its inception in the eighteenth century. Of interest to all scholars and students of detective fiction and British popular culture.

Book Narrating American Gender and Ethnic Identities

Download or read book Narrating American Gender and Ethnic Identities written by Aleksandra M. Różalska and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2013-07-16 with total page 270 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Narrating American Gender and Ethnic Identities investigates two major issues within contemporary American Studies: cultural representations of various minorities (ethnic, religious, sexual) and of women in intersectional contexts of race, class, and sexuality. The first part of the volume, “Gender and Sexuality in Film and Literature”, analyzes different film genres and literary accounts in reference to those aspects of gender and sexuality that are related to identity. Various cultural texts are discussed from perspectives deriving from feminist, gender, and LGBT studies, intersectionality theories, as well as film studies. The second part, “American Experiences of Ethnic Diversity”, dwells upon ethnic and racial problems of American multicultural society and complex interrelationships between the dominant and the marginalized (the center and the periphery). It also focuses on the issue of one’s “(un)fitting” into the dominant culture, mainstream politics, and canon. The book is mostly addressed to scholars and students of American Studies but will also be noteworthy to anybody interested in the United States, literature, and the media. Selected chapters of this volume can be used as a point of departure for discussions – both scholarly and student – on contemporary challenges to the idea of multiculturalism, the complex role of various intersections (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, age, sexuality, religion, class, dis/ability, etc.) in shaping minority subjectivities, as well as feminist responses to and reading of dominant women’s literary and filmic representations.
