This book studies the significance and representation of the ‘city’ in the writings of Indian poets, graphic novelists, and dramatists. It demonstrates how cities give birth to social images, perspectives, and complexities, and explores the ways in which cities and the characters in Indian literature coexist to form a larger literary framework of interpretations. Drawing on the theoretical concepts of Western urban thinkers such as Henri Lefebvre, Georg Simmel, Walter Benjamin, Edward Soja, David Harvey, and Diane Levy, as well as South Asian thinkers such as Ashis Nandy, Arjun Appadurai, Vinay Lal, and Ravi Sundaram, the book projects against a seemingly monolithic and homogenous Western qualification of urban literatures and offers a truly unique and contentious presentation of Indian literature. Unfolding the urban-literary landscape of India, the volume lays the groundwork for an urban studies approach to Indian literature. It will be of great interest to scholars and students of literature, especially Indian writing in English, urban studies, and South Asian studies.

What was the place of the artist in a new society? How would he thrive where monarchy, aristocracy, and an established church—those traditional patrons of painting, sculpture, and architecture—were repudiated so vigorously? Neil Harris examines the relationships between American cultural values and American society during the formative years of American art and explores how conceptions of the artist's social role changed during those years.

Immortal Milk

Immortal Milk

... I believed would protect me from the city's witchery. I would act the Arthurian knight. I would find, as though it were the Grail, the taste of the West Coast. In cheese. At first, it seemed the West Coast must taste like derelicts.

Is there a food more delightful, ubiquitous, or accessible than cheese? This book is a charming and engaging love letter to the food that Clifton Fadiman once called "milk’s leap toward immortality." Examining some cheeses we know as well as some we don’t; the processes, places, and people who make them; and the way cheeses taste us as much as we taste them, each chapter takes up a singular and exciting aspect of cheese: Why do we relish cheese? What facts does a cheese lover need to know? How did cheese lead to cheesiness? What’s the ideal way to eat cheese—in Paris, Italy, and Wisconsin? Why does cheese comfort us, even when it reeks? Finally, what foods pair well with which cheeses? Eric LeMay brings us cheese from as near as Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to as far as the Slow Food International Cheese Festival in Bra, Italy. In the witty, inventive, and wise company of his best girl, Chuck, he endures surly fromagers in Paris and dodges pissing goats in Vermont, a hurricane in Cambridge, and a dispiriting sense of hippie optimism in San Francisco; looks into curd and up at the cosmos; and even dons secondhand polyester to fathom America’s 1970s fondue fad. The result is a plucky and pithy tour through everything worth knowing about cheese. *** AN EXCERPT FROM THIS BOOK APPEARS IN BEST AMERICAN FOOD WRITING 2009 *** It’s a challenge to describe the flavor of an excellent French cheese. Chuck and I were in our tiny rental in the Marais, hovering over a Langres. We didn’t have the funds for Champagne, but we had managed to get tipsy on a serviceable vin de pays, which is also a pleasant way to eat a Langres. "It doesn’t play well with others," Chuck continued, the thick smack of pâte slowing her speech. "It doesn’t respect lesser cheese." "It’s like a road trip through Arizona in an old Buick," I offered. "It has a half-life inside your teeth." "It has ideas." "It gradually peels off the skin on the roof of your mouth." "It attains absolute crustiness and absolute creaminess." Anyone can read that a salt-washed Langres is "salty," then taste its saltiness, but not everyone will taste in it the brilliant and irascible character of Proust’s Palamède de Guermantes, Baron de Charlus. Yet these more personal descriptions capture the experience of a Langres. It sparks associative leaps, unforeseen flashbacks, inspired flights of poetry and desire. Its riches reveal your own. W. H. Auden once remarked that when you read a book, the book also reads you. The same holds true for cheese: it tastes you. —From Immortal Milk

"I’m at a loss of words, in the best way possible. This series is amazing and a must read! I can’t wait for the third one, I need answers!" - Verified Reviewer "Of Blood and Magic maintains all the whimsical marvel of its predecessor, yet brings to the fore a darker, more sinister tone that weaves metaphor, history, and folklore to transgress the boundaries of the fantasy genre. Shayne Leighton's growth as a writer is evident as she effortlessly immerses her reader in stunning gothic imagery from historic Prague and abandons some of the youthful mirth that marked her earlier work." - A. J. Vrana, Bestselling Author of The Hollow Gods hr Months after their brutal victory over the villainous Aiden and his hierarchy of Vampire-hunting Wizards, Charlotte and Valek have returned from Prague to their home in the Bohemian Occult City. This time, however, they are accompanied by their new band of magical misfits. By daylight, all seems peaceful since they've toppled the Regime, and the coven of rogue yet lovable monsters has finally found freedom. But Charlotte soon discovers that, much like her adopted Vampire family, she has developed a strange addiction of her own, and it's steadily destroying her from the inside out. Valek defies all odds, trying to save his love, but to no avail. With danger lurking around every corner, the couple begins to realize that their happily-ever-after might not end so happily after all. Will they conquer Charlotte's strange new disease...or will she drown in her own blood? Prepare for another epic quest amidst the monsters that hide in plain sight in this highly-anticipated sequel in the Of Light and Darkness series.
