“Imaginative, exhilarating, genre-bending, and one of the best YA novels of the year.” —BookRiot “An audacious tale. Like much classic literature and like growing up, reading this immersive novel is all about the experience.” —The Horn Book An IndieNext Pick! Gilmore Girls meets Wuthering Heights in Mary O'Connell's Dear Reader, a whip-smart, poignant, modern-day take on Emily Brontë’s classic novel. For seventeen-year-old Flannery Fields, the only respite from the plaid-skirted mean girls at Sacred Heart High School is her beloved teacher Miss Sweeney’s AP English class. But when Miss Sweeney doesn't show up to teach Flannery's favorite book, Wuthering Heights, leaving behind her purse, Flannery knows something is wrong. The police are called, and Flannery gives them everything—except Miss Sweeney's copy of Wuthering Heights. This she holds onto. And good thing she does, because when she opens it, it has somehow transformed into Miss Sweeney's real-time diary. It seems Miss Sweeney is in New York City—and she's in trouble. So Flannery does something very unFlannery-like: she skips school and sets out for Manhattan, with the book as her guide. But as soon as she arrives, she meets a boy named Heath. Heath is British, on a gap year, incredibly smart—yet he's never heard of Albert Einstein or Anne Frank. In fact, Flannery can't help thinking that he seems to have stepped from the pages of Brontë's novel. Could it be that Flannery is spending this topsy-turvy day with her ultimate fictional romantic hero, Heathcliff, reborn in the twenty-first century?

There's a lot of good to be said about publishing, mainly about the food. The books, though - Robert Dubois feels as if he's read the books, but still they keep coming back to him, the same old books just by new authors. Maybe he's ready to settle into the end of his career, like it's a tipsy afternoon after a working lunch. But then he is confronted with a gift: a piece of technology, a gizmo, a reader... Dear Reader takes a wry, affectionate look at the world of publishing, books and authors, and is a very funny, moving story about the passing of the old and the excitement of the new. Paul Fournel was born in 1947. He worked as a publisher with Ramsay and Seghers, and chaired the Société des gens de lettres. He was head of the Alliance Française in San Francisco, and a cultural attaché in Cairo and London. He now writes full time and cycles during the rest of the day. As a third full-time job, he is the Provisionally Definitive Secretary and President of the literary collective known as Oulipo, whose members have included George Perec and Italo Calvino, among many others. He is also the author of numerous novels, short stories, plays, memoirs, and poetry. David Bellos is Director of the Program in Translation and Intercultural Communication at Princeton University, where he is also Professor of French and Comparative Literature. He has won many awards for his translations of Georges Perec, Ismail Kadare and others, including the Man Booker Translator Award, and received the Prix Goncourt de la biographie for George Perec: A Life in Words.

"Ready now, reader? Easy then. That should put you in the right historical frame of mind, put you in mind of the right historical frame. For it did seem easier then, certainly more relaxed. Like the addressed and otherwise rendered nineteenth-century reader who is my subject of study, you are invited to take it slow while we back our way into the last century. We do so by moving from an unexpected modernist send-up of Victorian direct address, an early twist of phrase in E. M. Forster's 1907 The Longest Journey, to the underlying aesthetic of classic realism on which even this one rhetorical irony is by no means intended to pull the plug. On the way back to the nineteenth century, certain realist assumptions help mark out our course."--from Dear Reader With the "great tradition" from Austen through Dickens and Eliot to Hardy read here for the first time alongside the non-canonical best-sellers of the period, we get a revised picture of an evolving readership narrated rather than merely implied, the mass audience conscripted, written with, figured in. Redirecting response aesthetics away from the a priori reader function toward this reader figure, Garrett Stewart's Dear Reader intercepts two tendencies in the recent criticism of fiction: the blanket audience determinations of ideological critique and the thinness of historicizing discourse analysis when divorced from literary history's own discursive field.

A wry commentary on the weirdness of modern life. This is a book for anyone who has wondered how we inhabit this surreal world with a new set of youngsters that live in the fantasyland and although are experts in Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter plus all the gadgets you can imagine, they do not know the difference between a Picasso and a Warhol painting let alone discerning Chopin from Debussy. Someone once said that the Orientals invented gunpowder to use for fireworks during the festive seasons only to have the West turn it into a base for destruction by producing firearms. Man’s use of modern science, be it nuclear power, television, smart phones, motor cars, information technology including the monstrous Internet can all be consider in a similar vein. Although the potential to improve mankind’s short stay on this planet with the use of these new discoveries and inventions is there, man somehow continues to allow evil to creep in and dominate over good. This is a highly entertaining and witty collection of tales based around the follies and fascinations of modern technology and philosophical analysis as well as stories that are based on fact. Managing simultaneously to be both humorous and serious, the author portrays a variety of scenarios in which man becomes increasingly dominated and influenced by his own machines and bizarre creations. Other narratives take the form of anecdotes or personal adventures where human dram plays a central role. There is something for everyone; even computer lovers will be entertained and amused by the author’s images of the future in a collection of pieces which could be described as modern morality fables, albeit with some rather original and unexpected twists.

For Flannery Fields, the only respite from the mean girls at school is Miss Sweeney's English class. But when Miss Sweeney doesn't show up to teach her favourite book, Wuthering Heights, Flannery knows something is wrong. When the police are called, Flannery surrenders everything except for Miss Sweeney's precious dog-eared, annotated copy of Wuthering Heights. When she opens it later, it has transformed into her teacher's real-time diary. It appears Miss Sweeney is in New York City - and she's in trouble. So Flannery does something very unFlannery-like: she skips school and sets out for Manhattan, the diary as her guide. There she meets Heath, British, handsome and incredibly smart - yet he's never heard of Albert Einstein or Anne Frank. He could almost have stepped from the pages of BrontÃ's novel.

New Cover; Oh, be careful as you judge Emma, dear reader! Few characters in Church history are as misunderstood as Emma Smith. a member of the Church from the beginning and a staunch supporter of her husband through his trials and eventual death, Emma lived a difficult life, yet many wonder how she could have turned her back on the beliefs that she held so strongly and suffered so much for. Judge Me, Dear Reader is the story of Emma, one of the greatest champions - and most criticized members - of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. By showing Emma in a more sympathetic light, the author reminds each of us that Emma - and everyone else - will be judged according to the desires of their heart by the only one who can see things clearly: the Lord. While presiding over the Nauvoo mission, Erwin E. Wirkus developed an interest in Emma's story. He writes, I find few women who were asked to go through as such hardship, heartache, and tragedy as did Emma Smith. with his unique understanding, Wirkus wrote this historical novel from Emma's perspective to give readers a clearer picture of the joys and sorrows she experienced throughout her life.
