This book was released on 2010-12 with total page 587 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Kallendaros is a land conquered by the Dragons. In a treaty agreed upon between the races, it was decreed that every youth between the ages of fifteen and seventeen would receive the branding as a mark of loyalty to their conquerors. Justias, a brash seventeen-year-old, encounters Marek, a former Dragon Cleric fleeing from his own army. Justias hides Marek to save him, setting in motion a chain of events that leaves his village destroyed, and both of them running for their lives. The two become embroiled in a rebellion instigated by the Noble Houses of the southlands, who wish to overthrow the Dragon Clerics. Traveling to Southdeep, the last bastion of Human freedom, Justias embarks on a seemingly hopeless quest against their true enemy: the Dragons. Gildaryss, Tyrant Wyrm, molds the events to further her own plot: the annihilation of all Humanity. In a vain bid for peace with the Dragon Clerics, Southdeep's young lord Uriel is captured by the enemy. Presumed dead, the tension between the Clerics and the Nobility reaches the breaking point, with war inevitable. On the heels of such dire news, Justias finds himself hailed as the Dragon Slayer King: the warrior for whom the southlands have been waiting for more than 200 years.

Download or read book Solo Viola PDF or another Format written by Antoine Volodine and published by U of Minnesota Press. This book was released on 2021-05-11 with total page 112 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A harrowing early novel by one of France’s most unusual contemporary writers At once humorous and horrifying, Solo Viola is one of Antoine Volodine’s first forays into post-exoticism. He takes the reader into a fictional world where a variety of characters collide: three prisoners just released from jail, a band of circus performers, a string quartet, a writer, and a bird. All are trying to survive in an absurd and hostile environment of authoritarian spectacle, at the mercy of a tyrannical buffoon, and seeking the strange counterbalance of hope in a viola player, whose stunning music just might save them all, if only for a moment.
Download or read book Crazy Were We In The Head PDF or another Format written by Paul Enns Wiebe and published by FriesenPress. This book was released on 2018-05-29 with total page 243 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Growing up in a Mennonite family in Inverness, Idaho back in the forties and fifties, John Reisender is perplexed. Why had Great-grandma been married in a Muslim mosque way hell and gone out in the wilds of Central Asia? On the road to solving this puzzle, he finds himself excommunicated, temporarily, from the family religion. He discovers that his maternal grandfather had escaped Czarist Russia, acts as an undertaker for a cat’s funeral, takes a crash course in Nietzsche from the keeper of the city dump, escapes drowning, becomes an unsung, accidental semi-hero in a high school football game, cheats death on a spelunking expedition, and falls in lust with a pious girl who sports a derriere that reminds him of the WWII pinup girl, Betty Grable. With a Dickensian cast of characters brimming with eccentrics, Crazy Were We in the Head hilariously and often movingly chronicles a singular American boyhood. And if I laugh at any mortal thing, ’Tis that I may not weep. —Lord Byron

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this work, the author tells how Saroyan transformed the short story by personalizing it and by loosening the structure of the novella form. He went on to bring new life to the theater and to the telling of autobiography. Better than that of any recent drama critic, Balakian's chapters on the theater place Saroyan's plays in the larger framework of the American theater of his time and achieve the creation of a total picture of the state of the American theater of the 1930s.
Download or read book The Magical Pine Ring PDF or another Format written by Margaret Bedrosian and published by Wayne State University Press. This book was released on 1991 with total page 268 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Margaret Bedrosian's pioneering interdisciplinary study examines the continuing effect of Armenian history on Armenian-American writing. Using the work of ten Armenian-American poets and fiction and non-fiction writers, she shows the continuing impact on Armenian Americans of cultural symbols, myths, and attitudes carried over from the Old World, and explores the ways in which two cultures meet, conflict, and become integrated in the imagination. Through analysis of writers' actual or fictionalized experience, The Magical Pine Ring provides an understanding of the Armenians' specific concerns as Armenians and as immigrants, the effect of their self-awareness as Armenians on their adaptation to America, the typical and stereotypical situations and personalities that emerged with time, and the key values and beliefs that endured even as names were changed and assimilation blurred physical and social demeanor. Bedrosian also explores the directions Armenian-American writers have taken in portraying group history and the nature of their self-discovery as Armenian Americans. For the most part, this literature is not a direct outgrowth of the mainstream of Armenian literature. The relationship of the writer discussed here is one of spirit, of ancestral sympathies, burdens, and responsibilities. These writers register the pain of exile and alienation as they weave images of yearning and loss, celebration and futuristic vision into their writing. Through their crossroads identity in America, these writers add to our understanding of the Armenian diaspora.

Download or read book Life on Sandpaper PDF or another Format written by Yoram Kaniuk and published by Deep Vellum Publishing. This book was released on 2011-02-01 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A whirlwind of art, music, and lust, Life on Sandpaper is Yoram Kaniuk's overwhelming autobiographical novel detailing his years as a young painter in the New York of the '50s. Wounded and alienated, a war veteran at the age of nineteen, Kaniuk arrives in Greenwich Village at its peak period of artistic creativity, and finds his way among such giants as Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Willem de Kooning, and Frank Sinatra. In terse prose, inspired by the associative and breathless drive of bebop, Kaniuk's memories race between the ecstatic devotion of his beloved Harlem jazz clubs, through the ideological spats of the dying Yiddish world of the Lower East Side, to the volcanic gush of passion, pain, art, dance, alcohol, and drugs that was Greenwich Village. Kaniuk's stories roll and tumble here with hypnotic urgency, as if this were his last opportunity to remember, and tell, before all is obliterated.
