Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A child of a dysfunctional household, the eleven-year-old, scraggy boy named Toine confronts a high school education system. Despite feeling shamed into silence, he continues to make a stand for dissident thought. Teachers, shocked, disapprove of their pupil's verbal revolt. The boy's apparent exclusion from civilian society makes him feel depressed. He develops thoughts of suicide. To save himself, he escapes in daydreams. He picks up a writing hobby and starts to blur the lines between dreams and reality. In his mind, the boy has convinced himself he is a military recruit living in a semi-detached bunker. When his general, Bonifacius, and nurse Gertrude take him to a psychologist, his world falls apart. Will Toine survive the school year? This novella is a critique of science education. It questions a society’s motive for enforcing political correctness.

Wulf Gungnirsson, an orphan left under an ash tree, dreams of a career in the Europolis, the World City that holds seventy billion people captive. Because work disappoints him, he begins to question himself and his society. After he meets the love of his life, his radical thoughts lead to his conviction for wrongthink. Wulf and his Inga escape into exile. As they try to rebuild their lives in the wilderness, they discover that the world's governing body, the Council, has committed an unfathomable crime against humanity. Wulf vows to preach the Truth. He raises an army of outcasts to overthrow the city. To succeed, he must confront his past and find the father who abandoned him. This book contains strong themes of paganism, existential angst, and war. It criticizes urban society and promotes a return to primitive lifestyles.

This book was released on 2015-04-24 with total page 309 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Pop literature of the 1990s enjoyed bestselling success, as well as an extensive and sometimes bluntly derogatory reception in the press. Since then, less censorious scholarship on pop has emerged to challenge its flash-in-the-pan status by situating the genre within a longer history of aesthetic practices. This volume draws on recent work and its attempts to define the genre, locate historical antecedents and assess pop’s ability to challenge the status quo. Significantly, it questions the ‘official story’ of pop literature by looking beyond Ralf Dieter Brinkmann’s works as origin to those of Jürgen Ploog, Jörg Fauser and Hadayatullah Hübsch. It also remedies the lack of attention to questions of gender in previous pop lit scholarship and demonstrates how the genre has evolved in the new millennium via expanded thematic concerns and new aesthetic approaches. Essays in the volume examine the writing of well-known, established pop authors – such as Christian Kracht, Andreas Neumeister, Joachim Lottman, Benjamin Lebert, Florian Illies, Feridun Zaimoğlu and Sven Regener – as well as more recent works by Jana Hensel, Charlotte Roche, Kerstin Grether, Helene Hegemann and songwriter/poet PeterLicht.
