'Perfect' Lena Dunham 'This year's literary sensation' Evening Standard How far would you travel to become a writer? 8000 miles from home 1085 calories a day 3 months to write the novel that would make her name At least that was the plan. But when Nell Stevens travelled to Bleaker Island in the Falklands (official population: two) she didn’t count on the isolation getting to her . . . Hilarious and heartbreaking, this is a book about loneliness and creativity. It is about discovering who you are when there’s no one else around. And it’s about what to do when a plan doesn’t work: ultimately Nell may have failed to write a novel, but she succeeded in becoming a writer.

In 1920 the body of Elizabeth Thatch-Bleaker was found in the room she rented on the third floor of what used to be called Weston House. No foul play was suspected and no one came forward with answers at that time. Since her death, there have been rumors of people being pushed down the stairs, and sightings of shadow figures in the home among many other things that have been said to have happen here. One hundred years later, the residents of Rothenburg, Oregon want the truth. Is Bleaker House truly haunted? What happens when an amateur ghost hunter/Empath team up with professional paranormal investigators to uncover the truth about one of Oregon's most haunted locations?

In this remarkable study, Gail Turley Houston examines the rich interplay of consumption as alimental process, medical entity, psychological construct, and economic practice in order to explore Charles Dickens’s fictional representations of Victorian culture as he presents it in his novels. Drawing from medical, historical, economic, psychoanalytic, and biographical materials from the Victorian period, Houston anchors her work in the belief that if class and gender are fictional constructions, real people’s lives are affected in complex and coercive ways by such constructions. Proceeding chronologically, Houston traces particular patterns throughout ten of Dickens’s major novels: The Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist, The Old Curiosity Shop, Martin Chuzzlewit, Dombey and Son, David Copperfield, Bleak House, Little Dorrit, Great Expectations, and Our Mutual Friend. Houston maintains that Victorian codes of behavior prescribed for gender and class regarding sexual and alimental appetites were so extreme and complicated that numerous consequent eating disorders and related diseases developed. Ideologies about consumption translated into medically defined consumptions, such as anorexia. Using anorexia and its etiology as representative of an underlying cultural dynamics of consumption, Houston examines anorexia as a deep structure of the Victorian period. Further, consumption as economic process is reflected in the expansion of individual material desires at the expense of the designated body politic. In other words, extravagant consumption occurs in society only if certain groups—usually consisting of lower-class men and women and, in Dickens’s novels, women in general—are severely limited in their consumption. To support her approach, Houston turns to Rita Felski’s Beyond Feminist Aesthetics, agreeing with Felski’s argument that it is necessary to recognize the complex dialectics that take place between the individual and society. Not only does culture construct human beings, but human beings also construct culture. Felski’s theory aids Houston in emphasizing that Dickens not only influenced but was also greatly influenced by the Victorian dynamics of consumption. In fact, Houston argues that while Dickens dismantles Victorian ideologies about class and hunger by demonstrating the unnaturalness of expecting one class to starve so that another might gluttonize, he nevertheless accepts and perpetuates the Victorian identification of woman as the self-sacrificing, always-nurturing "angel in the house" without need of nurture herself. This extraordinary book will appeal to literary scholars, as well as to scholars in the social sciences, history, humanistically oriented medicine, and women’s studies.

There are many ways to show our devotion to an author besides reading his or her works. Graves make for popular pilgrimage sites, but far more popular are writers' house museums. What is it we hope to accomplish by trekking to the home of a dead author? We may go in search of the point of inspiration, eager to stand on the very spot where our favorite literary characters first came to life—and find ourselves instead in the house where the author himself was conceived, or where she drew her last breath. Perhaps it is a place through which our writer passed only briefly, or maybe it really was a longtime home—now thoroughly remade as a decorator's show-house. In A Skeptic's Guide to Writers' Houses Anne Trubek takes a vexed, often funny, and always thoughtful tour of a goodly number of house museums across the nation. In Key West she visits the shamelessly ersatz shrine to a hard-living Ernest Hemingway, while meditating on his lost Cuban farm and the sterile Idaho house in which he committed suicide. In Hannibal, Missouri, she walks the fuzzy line between fact and fiction, as she visits the home of the young Samuel Clemens—and the purported haunts of Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher, and Injun' Joe. She hits literary pay-dirt in Concord, Massachusetts, the nineteenth-century mecca that gave home to Hawthorne, Emerson, and Thoreau—and yet could not accommodate a surprisingly complex Louisa May Alcott. She takes us along the trail of residences that Edgar Allan Poe left behind in the wake of his many failures and to the burned-out shell of a California house with which Jack London staked his claim on posterity. In Dayton, Ohio, a charismatic guide brings Paul Laurence Dunbar to compelling life for those few visitors willing to listen; in Cleveland, Trubek finds a moving remembrance of Charles Chesnutt in a house that no longer stands. Why is it that we visit writers' houses? Although admittedly skeptical about the stories these buildings tell us about their former inhabitants, Anne Trubek carries us along as she falls at least a little bit in love with each stop on her itinerary and finds in each some truth about literature, history, and contemporary America.

As a menacing snowstorm buffets their van, two men await their prey, a computer genius marked for death. When the young man emerges from a house, Bones loads his special pistol and stalks him. There's a shot to the back of the neck, and the kid collapses and dies. P. I. Max Austin, ex-FBI, takes on the case, soon detecting that it's no simple murder. The coroner says death was by curare. Max knows the "flying death" poison must be injected to work, and yet no syringe or dart was found at the scene. The murdered kid was one of six in Securegard, a company selling security programs to commercial and government groups. Max interviews two of them, but suddenly, two of the others die in mysterious ways. Now Max must learn the causes of those deaths, and find Will before the killers. Needing help with the computer connection, Max enlists Marisol, an ex-girlfriend and head of computer fraud at FBI headquarters. But matters heat up, and soon the killers are after Max, Will, and Marisol. They hole up at a ranch, and only Max's knowledge of nature and animals, as well as his fighting skills and will to survive, keep them all alive. But just when all seems resolved, Max learns there's more to the story. The tangled interactions of computer geeks, killers, and the FBI are far beyond what he imagined, and unless he can cut through the Gordian knot of deception, this will be his last case.Father of four sons, Mark Bouton lives in Kansas, where he writes novels, lifts weights and practices yoga.
