Book excerpt: Elliott Zzaimix loved living in a nine-story house. It made living with eight other family members stress free. One night, she and her family, nine people strong, awaken to the sound of breaking glass. An intruder has smashed their belongings...and he's still in the house! The Zzaimix family scares off the intruder when they investigate the break-in. As they compare each family member's account of the night's events, they realize they have Nine Stories. The mystery deepens as the break-in appears to be more than a random act of burglary. The intruder breaks in a second time while the Zzaimixes stay with their Uncle Preston. Who is the intruder? Why would he break into their house once and then return to break in again? What does the intruder have against the Zzaimixes? Join Elliott and the rest of the Zzaimix family in their adventure as they investigate and uncover clues to the shocking identity of the intruder and a hidden family secret.
Download or read book Ninety Nine Stories of God written by Joy Williams and published by Profile Books. This book was released on 2017-05-04 with total page 112 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: At a hot-dog-eating contest or at a demolition derby, in line at the pharmacy counter waiting for a shingles vaccination, living in a cave with a colony of bats: the Almighty appears in ever-more mysterious ways in Ninety-Nine Stories of God, Joy Williams' surreal, sublime new collection of very short short stories. Each less than a page long, each packing a punch belied by its size, every one of these ninety-nine stories tells of everyday human interaction with an increasingly elusive and arbitrary deity. Haunted by an array of extraordinary historical figures, from Kafka and Tolstoy to O. J. Simpson and Philip K. Dick, but populated by anonymous ordinary people just like you and me, the stories pool seemingly random moments into something deep, dazzling and disconcerting. Bleak and funny, ironic and lyrical, enigmatic and aphoristic, Ninety-Nine Stories of God breaks down the barriers between the everyday and the divine and takes Williams' writing into territories strange and new.

Download or read book Nine Stories of the Sea written by Anthony Holt and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2014-08-08 with total page 115 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: These Nine 'Sea Stories' are all written from personal experience of the Author. "Tui Lau" is the unique account of the South Pacific rescue of over 100 people by a helicopter flown by the Author. It was a protracted, dangerous and difficult rescue with a memorable aftermath. "Hurricane" describes a ship caught in a particular mid-Atlantic storm, whereas "Mutiny" is drawn from a combination of several sequences of events and is presented as a work of fiction. "A Matter of Conscience" is a sad story, variations of which have occurred all too frequently with sailors far from home. "The Collision" and "The King and I" show two extremes of service in the same Fleet Destroyer. "Dunsley Wyke" gives a snapshot of life in the fishing industry, "The Chase" is set in the Cold War era and "Out to Lunch" gives an amusing and informal view of Coastal Forces in the 1960s..
Download or read book Traveling East Driving West Nine Stories written by Jeffrey W. Klausman and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2000-12-20 with total page 148 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: These stories are about rebirth: learning to live in the world again after facing an emotional and spiritual desert, facing space where questions and answers end. Most of the nine stories rely upon imagery and sound to create meaning where story ends. All present characters with life-creating questions, questions whose answers cannot be sought in the company of others or through the words of others; these are questions whose contemplation gives rise to answers as large as our world and as silent. The reader is left at the end of each facing the landscape of the West while oriented toward the spiritual East.

Download or read book Collected Short Stories of Bertolt Brecht written by Bertolt Brecht and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2015-01-29 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Everyone knows that Bertolt Brecht was one of the great 20th-century innovators in theatre - the literary-theatrical equivalent of a Picasso or Stravinsky - and Germany's greatest poet of the last century, but the playwright was also a dazzling writer of stories. Storytelling permeated his art as a dramatist; fundamentally in his plays he was a storyteller. This volume collects the complete short stories written by Brecht, including the prize-winning 'The Monster', and the fragmentary memoir ghost-written by Brecht, 'Life Story of the boxer Samson-Körner'. Brecht scholar Marc Silberman provides an introduction and editorial notes. Fans of Brecht will find in the 37 stories assembled here the same directness, lack of affectation, and wry humour that characterise his plays. Every lover of short stories will discover an unexpected trove of pleasure in this "mine for short-story addicts" (Observer).

Download or read book Learning from Picturebooks written by Bettina Kümmerling-Meibauer and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2015-02-20 with total page 232 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Picturebooks, understood as a series of meaningful text-picture relations, are increasingly acknowledged as an autonomous sub-genre of children’s literature. Being highly complex aesthetic products, their use is deeply embedded in specific situations of joint attention between a caregiver and a child. This volume focuses on the question of what children may learn from looking at picturebooks, whether printed in a book format, created in a digital format, or self-produced by educationalists and researchers. Interest in the relationship between cognitive processes and children’s literature is growing rapidly, and in this book, theoretical frameworks such as cognitive linguistics, cognitive narratology, cognitive poetics, and cognitive psychology, have been applied to the analysis of children’s literature. Chapters gather empirical research from the fields of literary studies, linguistics and cognitive psychology together for the first time to build a cohesive understanding of how picturebooks assist learning and development. International contributions explore: language acquisition the child’s cognitive development emotional development literary acquisition ("literary literacy") visual literacy. Divided into three parts considering symbol-based learning, co-constructed learning, and learning language skills, this cross-disciplinary volume will appeal to researchers, students and professionals engaged in children’s literature and literacy studies, as well as those from the fields of cognitive and developmental psychology, linguistics, and education.
Download or read book Immigrant America written by Alejandro Portes and published by Univ of California Press. This book was released on 2006-10-03 with total page 497 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This third edition of the widely acclaimed classic has been thoroughly expanded and updated to reflect current demographic, economic, and political realities. Drawing on recent census data and other primary sources, Portes and Rumbaut have infused the entire text with new information and added a vivid array of new vignettes and illustrations. Recognized for its superb portrayal of immigration and immigrant lives in the United States, this book probes the dynamics of immigrant politics, examining questions of identity and loyalty among newcomers, and explores the psychological consequences of varying modes of migration and acculturation. The authors look at patterns of settlement in urban America, discuss the problems of English-language acquisition and bilingual education, explain how immigrants incorporate themselves into the American economy, and examine the trajectories of their children from adolescence to early adulthood. With a vital new chapter on religion—and fresh analyses of topics ranging from patterns of incarceration to the mobility of the second generation and the unintended consequences of public policies—this updated edition is indispensable for framing and informing issues that promise to be even more hotly and urgently contested as the subject moves to the center of national debate..

Download or read book The United Stories of America written by Rolf Lundén and published by BRILL. This book was released on 2022-06-08 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book discusses the American short story composite, or short story cycle, a neglected form of writing consisting of autonomous stories interlocking into a whole. The critical work done on this genre has so far focused on the closural strategies of the composites, on how unity is accomplished in these texts. This study takes into consideration, to a greater degree than earlier criticism, the short story composite as an open work, emphasizing the tension between the independent stories and the unified work, between the discontinuity and fragmentation, on the one hand, and the totalizing strategies, on the other. The discussion of the genre is illustrated with references to numerous American short story composites.
