Genre: Literary Criticism

“thoughtful and entertaining...highly useful...achieves its goal”—Booklist “may be the most thorough guide to the 60 novels published between 1920 and 1976...provides thoughtful and helpful commentary”—ARBA “a very worthwhile book for...a good encyclopedic introduction to the world of this most prolific and well loved crime author”--Reference Reviews “excellent”--GAdetection “the writing is lively, the author’s enthusiasm infectious”--Mystery Scene The most popular mystery writer of all time concocted a rich recipe of intrigue, character, and setting.

Jack the Ripper is back Der Tag von Rorys Ankunft im altehrwürdigen Internat Wexford ist gleichzeitig der Tag, an dem eine Mordserie beginnt, die ganz London in Atem hält. Jack the Ripper ist zurück, oder vielmehr jemand, der exakt die Taten des Serienmörders kopiert. Unter den Augen der an den Bildschirmen mitzitternden Londoner Bevölkerung tötet der Ripper trotz Überwachungskameras und observierenden Hubschraubern weiter – und lässt die Polizei alt aussehen, so ganz ohne Zeugen. Was keiner weiß: Eine einzige Zeugin gibt es – Rory. Die junge Amerikanerin ist die Einzige, die den Mörder gesehen hat. Womöglich auch die Einzige, die ihn sehen kann? Und plötzlich ist der Ripper hinter Rory her ...

Writing Diverse Characters For Fiction TV or Film

Author: Lucy V. Hay
Publisher: Oldcastle Books Ltd
ISBN: 9780857301185
Release Date: 2017-08-24
Genre: Performing Arts

We're living in a time of unprecedented diversity in produced media content, with more characters appearing who are Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT), disabled, or from other religions or classes. What's more, these characters are increasingly appearing in genre pieces, accessible to the mainstream, instead of being hidden away in so-called 'worthier' pieces, as in the past. How to Write Diverse Characters discusses issues of race, disability, sexuality and transgender people with specific reference to characterisation - not only in movies and TV, but also novel writing. Taking in blockbuster movies such as Mad Max Fury Road, Russell T Davies' ground-breaking TV series Cucumber and and the controversial novel Gone Girl, the book explores: - How character role function really works - What is the difference between stereotype and archetype? - Why 'trope' does not mean what Twitter and Tumblr think it means - How the burden of casting affects both box office and audience perception - Why diversity is not about agendas, buzzwords or being 'politically correct' - What authenticity truly means and why research is so important - Why variety is key in ensuring true diversity in characterisation Writers have to catch up. Knowing not only what makes a 'good' diverse character doesn't always cut it; they need to know what agents, publishers, producers, filmmakers and commissioners are looking for - and why. This book gives writers the tools to create three dimensional, authentic characters ... who just happen to be diverse. 'A timely guide to creating original characters and reinvigorating tired storylines' - Debbie Moon, creator and showrunner, Wolfblood (BBC) 'Lucy V. Hay nails it' - Stephen Volk, BAFTA-winning screenwriter: Ghostwatch, Afterlife, The Awakening 'Packed with practical and inspirational insights' - Karol Griffiths, development consultant and script editor, clients include ITV, BBC, Warner Brothers

Narcissistic Narrative

Author: Linda Hutcheon
Publisher: Wilfrid Laurier Univ. Press
ISBN: 9780889207653
Release Date: 2010-01-01
Genre: Literary Criticism

Linda Hutcheon, in this original study, examines the modes, forms and techniques of narcissistic fiction, that is, fiction which includes within itself some sort of commentary on its own narrative and/or linguistic nature. Her analysis is further extended to discuss the implications of such a development for both the theory of the novel and reading theory. Having placed this phenomenon in its historical context Linda Hutcheon uses the insights of various reader-response theories to explore the “paradox” created by metafiction: the reader is, at the same time, co-creator of the self-reflexive text and distanced from it because of its very self-reflexiveness. She illustrates her analysis through the works of novelists such as Fowles, Barth, Nabokov, Calvino, Borges, Carpentier, and Aquin. For the paperback edition of this important book a preface has been added which examines developments since first publication. Narcissistic Narrative was selected by Choice as one of the outstanding academic books for 1981–1982.

From writing mysteries, to the human genome project, these model lessons for the core academic areas will excite your students and save you planning time. In addition to the 12 model lessons provided, the book includes a step-by-step guide to developing lessons that emphasize depth and complexity. All of the materials focus on ways to align the middle school curriculum with established national standards and offer strategies to evaluate learner achievement. The writers who contributed lessons to this book are all outstanding educators who were selected based on their subject area expertise and experience in curriculum writing. They worked tirelessly, writing, revising, and rewriting, creating model lessons that have set a high standard for middle school teachers. The lessons have been grouped by grade level as they share a common theme. The grade level designations are, to some degree, for demonstration and example purposes only. In a particular classroom, lessons from other grade levels may be equally appropriate. The most important goal of this book is the hope that, with the examples of curriculum excellence and the theoretical background, teachers will begin to develop standards-based lessons and units of study that will promote high-end learning for gifted students in middle school.
