This is a brilliant, burning-cool satire on the decline of Western culture. The action takes place largely in a university setting, and the antihero is a professor who knows the academic system only too well. But we are not dealing here with an academic novel in any traditional sense. Rather, the campus and the business orientation of the administration -- even its soi-disant scholarship -- comprise a devastating model of where our culture is headed, in fact of where it already may be. --Amazon.com.

A Cool Million and The Dream Life of Balso Snell

The Dream Life of Balso Snell (1931), West's first work, was described by one delighted critic as "a fantasy about some rather scatalogical adventures of the hero in the innards of the Trojan Horse."

A Cool Million (1934) subtitled "The Dismantling of Lemuel Pitkin", is a satiric Horatio Alger story set in the midst of the Depression and is written in a bracing, mock-heroic style that has lost none of its wit or power. The Dream Life of Balso Snell (1931), West's first work, was described by one delighted critic as "a fantasy about some rather scatalogical adventures of the hero in the innards of the Trojan Horse."

Freaks in Late Modernist American Culture explores the emergence of what Nancy Bombaci terms «late modernist freakish aesthetics» - a creative fusion of «high» and «low» themes and forms in relation to distorted bodies. Literary and cinematic texts about «freaks» by Nathanael West, Djuna Barnes, Tod Browning, and Carson McCullers subvert and reinvent modern progress narratives in order to challenge high modernist literary and social ideologies. These works are marked by an acceptance of the disteleology, anarchy, and degeneration that racist discourses of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries associated with racial and ethnic outsiders, particularly Jews. In a period of American culture beset with increasing pressures for social and political conformity and with the threat of fascism from Europe, these late modernist narratives about «freaks» defy oppressive norms and values as they search for an anarchic and transformational creativity.

"One more thing..., " Columbo would say to the murderer during the course of his rumpled investigation, and the killer would perhaps feel the noose tightening. The show of the same name was one of the most popular detective series appearing on television in the 1970s, a decade that offered a wider variety of such shows than any other time. (Series beginning in the 1960s or ending in the 1980s that had episodes broadcast in the 1970s are also included in full.) Four subgenres are studied: cops, private detectives, lawyers, and sleuths. Each entry is arranged alphabetically and follows the same format: cast and credits, brief remarks about the style, and an episode guide (episode titles, original telecast dates, guest casts and brief plot synopses). Comprehensive index.
