Pete McCarthy established one cardinal rule of travel in hisbestselling debut, McCarthy's Bar: "Never pass a bar withyour name on it." In this equally wry and insightful follow-up,his characteristic good humor, curiosity, and thirst for adventuretake him on a fantastic jaunt around the world in search of hisIrish roots -- from Morocco, where he tracks down the unlikelychief of the McCarthy clan, to New York, and finally to remote Mc-Carthy, Alaska. The Road to McCarthy is a quixotic and anything-but-typical Irish odyssey that confirms Pete McCarthy's status asone of our funniest and most incisive writers.

Die Welt nach dem Ende der Welt Ein Mann und ein Kind schleppen sich durch ein verbranntes Amerika. Nichts bewegt sich in der zerstörten Landschaft, nur die Asche schwebt im Wind. Es ist eiskalt, der Schnee schimmert grau. Sie haben kaum etwas bei sich: ihre Kleider am Leib, einen Einkaufswagen mit der nötigsten Habe und einen Revolver mit zwei Schuss Munition. Ihr Ziel ist die Küste, obwohl sie nicht wissen, was sie dort erwartet. Die Geschichte der beiden ist eine düstere Parabel auf das Leben, und sie erzählt von der herzzerreißenden Liebe eines Vaters zu seinem Sohn.

You’ll learn the job descriptions for both yourself and your new partner, and you’ll see that when these steps are applied on a daily basis, you will experience a complete shift in your thinking about how financial wealth and abundance are created.

Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. The Road was written by Cormac McCarthy, a prolific writer with several acclaimed novels to his credit. McCarthy was born in Rhode Island on July 20, 1933. His given name was Charles McCarthy, his father's name, but he changed it to Cormac, meaning “son of Charles, so as not to be confused with his father. He attended University of Tennessee but left after one year to serve in the military. He returned to college but left again to pursue a writing career. McCarthy published his first novel, The Orchard Keeper, in 1965, and received the William Faulkner Award. In 1979, he published his novel Suttree after struggling with it for 20 years. It's argued that this was his best novel and he's never surpassed it. However, with the publishing of Blood Meridian in 1985, McCarthy gained mainstream attention, and this novel was called one of the best novels of the 20th century by renowned critic Harold Bloom. McCarthy went on to publish his popular Border Trilogy. His novel No Country for Old Men (2005) was adapted to film by the Coen brothers and received several Academy Awards in 2007. McCarthy published The Road in 2006. The novel was adapted to film and released in 2009 to mixed reviews.

Brian Keenan's fascination with Alaska began as a small boy while reading Jack London's wondrous Call of the Wild. With a head full of questions about its inspiring landscape and a heart informed by his love of desolate and barren places, Brian Keenan sets out for Alaska to discover its four geographical quarters from snowmelt in May to snowfall in September, and en route, finds a land as fantastical as a fairytale but whose vastness has a very peculiar type of allure... From dog-mushing on a frozen lake beneath the whirling colours of the aurora borealis to camping in a two dollar tent in the tundra of the arctic circle, Brian Keenan seeks out the ultimate wilderness experience and along the way, encounters hard-core survivalists who know what struggle and endurance mean from their daily battle with nature to exist.He discovers that true wilderness is as much a state of mind as it is a place.And ultimately to make Alaska home, one must surrender to the land.

The Rocky Road to Liberty

A Documented History of Chinese Immigration and Exclusion

Category: History

Page: 252

View: 1398

This book is a collection of historical documents related to immigration of the Chinese to the United States. Special efforts were made to collect documents related to the Chinese Exclusion Act and its impact on the Chinese American society in the United Sates. This book details the Chinese American political struggles and social conditions in California and America. The painful history of misoneism, racism, and inequality are well documented. It all began during California's infancy, the 1850s Gold Rush, which Chinese natives referred to as Gam Saan (Cantonese, for Gold Mountain). These prevailing attitudes expressed misunderstanding and fear towards the Chinese community. And though these prejudices were acknowledged through the rescission of racist laws, an apology was never issued until 2009.

"Ein glanzvolles Stück Literatur, das steht fest!" (The Sunday Times) U., der sich selbst »Firmenanthropologe« nennt, erhält den Auftrag, den Großen Bericht zu schreiben, ein universales ethnografisches Dokument, das unser gesamtes Zeitalter zusammenfasst. Doch schnell fühlt er sich überwältigt von der schieren Datenmenge und der augenscheinlichen Unmöglichkeit, das Vorgefundene in eine irgendwie geartete, sinnstiftende Erzählung zu übersetzen. Als er sich zu fragen beginnt, ob sein Vorhaben überhaupt gelingen kann, verändert ein Traum von einer apokalyptischen Stadtlandschaft, in deren Mitte eine gigantische Müllverbrennungsanlage thront, seine Wahrnehmung. Auf eine Art, wie nur er es kann, fängt Tom McCarthy ein, wie wir unsere Welt erleben, wie wir versuchen, ihr einen Sinn zuzusprechen und die Erzählung, die wir für unser Leben halten, zu erkennen. Ein beunruhigender Roman, der verspricht, das erste und letzte Wort über die Zeit zu formulieren, in der wir uns bewegen – sei sie modern, postmodern oder welches Label auch immer wir ihr geben wollen.

Intertextual and Interdisciplinary Approaches to Cormac McCarthy

Borders and Crossings

Author: Nicholas Monk

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1136636064

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 208

This collection offers a fresh approach to the work of Cormac McCarthy, one of the most important contemporary American authors. Essays focus on his work across the genres and/or in constellation with other writers and artists, presenting not only a different "angle" on the work, but setting him within a broader literary and artistic context. Such an approach offers a view of McCarthy that is strikingly different to previous collections that have dealt with the work in an almost exclusively "single author" and/or "single genre" mode. McCarthy’s novels are increasingly regarded as amongst the most rich, the most complex, and the most insightful of all recent literary responses to prevailing conditions in both the USA and beyond, and this collection recognizes the intertextual and interdisciplinary nature of his work. Contributors draw back the curtain on some of McCarthy’s literary ancestors, revealing and analyzing some of the fiction’s key contemporary intertexts, and showing a complex and previously underestimated hinterland of influence. In addition, they look beyond the novel both to other genres in McCarthy’s oeuvre, and to the way these genres have influenced McCarthy’s writing.

Knoxville/Tennessee: Anfang der fünfziger Jahre. In einem Slum am Ufer des Tennessee-Rivers lebt auf einem Hausboot Cornelius Suttree. Er ist so verloren wie seine Freunde. Eine archaische Welt im Schatten der rigiden, rassistischen Gesellschaft des amerikanischen Südens, geprägt durch Armut und brutalen Überlebenskampf. Dort ist der Tod alltäglich. Aber eigentlich steht im Mittelpunkt des Buches der Fluss, Lebensader und Styx: Suttree lebt vom Verkauf der Fische, doch allzu oft treibt eine Kinderleiche im Wasser. Im Schlamm, halb verborgen unter Giftsumach, und an den Abstürzen des Steilufers vegetieren die Außenseiter, die heroischen Überlebenskünstler; auf der anderen Seite des Flusses, hell erleuchtet und unerreichbar fern, liegt die moderne, die reiche Stadt.
