READING: ‘Een hilarische en leerzame zoektocht naar liefde.’ NRC Handelsblad Als je op zoek bent naar liefde, dan is het aanbod geen probleem: we hebben 24 uur per dag een bar in onze broekzak zitten. We beschikken over meer romantische opties dan ooit eerder in de menselijke geschiedenis. Waarom zijn zo veel mensen dan toch gefrustreerd? Aziz Ansari, comedian en acteur, heeft met behulp van socioloog Eric Klinenberg uitgebreid onderzoek gedaan naar de liefde. Ze ontwierpen een enorm onderzoeksproject, met honderden interviews en focusgroepen van Tokio tot Parijs, en riepen de hulp in van ’s werelds bekendste sociale wetenschappers. Het resultaat is een even hilarisch als interessant boek over de liefde, voor zowel de bezette als vrijgezelle lezer. De pers over Moderne romantiek ‘Ansari beschrijft zoveel gênante anekdotes, afgrijselijke sms’jes en compleet mislukte afspraakjes dat je er wel om móét lachen.’ de Volkskrant ‘Op geestige wijze legt stand-upcomedian Aziz Ansari uit dat daten in deze tijd verre van eenvoudig is.’ AD Magazine

READING: The #1 New York Times Bestseller A hilarious, thoughtful, and in-depth exploration of the pleasures and perils of modern romance from Aziz Ansari, the star of Master of None and one of this generation’s sharpest comedic voices At some point, every one of us embarks on a journey to find love. We meet people, date, get into and out of relationships, all with the hope of finding someone with whom we share a deep connection. This seems standard now, but it’s wildly different from what people did even just decades ago. Single people today have more romantic options than at any point in human history. With technology, our abilities to connect with and sort through these options are staggering. So why are so many people frustrated? Some of our problems are unique to our time. “Why did this guy just text me an emoji of a pizza?” “Should I go out with this girl even though she listed Combos as one of her favorite snack foods? Combos?!” “My girlfriend just got a message from some dude named Nathan. Who’s Nathan? Did he just send her a photo of his penis? Should I check just to be sure?” But the transformation of our romantic lives can’t be explained by technology alone. In a short period of time, the whole culture of finding love has changed dramatically. A few decades ago, people would find a decent person who lived in their neighborhood. Their families would meet and, after deciding neither party seemed like a murderer, they would get married and soon have a kid, all by the time they were twenty-four. Today, people marry later than ever and spend years of their lives on a quest to find the perfect person, a soul mate. For years, Aziz Ansari has been aiming his comic insight at modern romance, but for Modern Romance, the book, he decided he needed to take things to another level. He teamed up with NYU sociologist Eric Klinenberg and designed a massive research project, including hundreds of interviews and focus groups conducted everywhere from Tokyo to Buenos Aires to Wichita. They analyzed behavioral data and surveys and created their own online research forum on Reddit, which drew thousands of messages. They enlisted the world’s leading social scientists, including Andrew Cherlin, Eli Finkel, Helen Fisher, Sheena Iyengar, Barry Schwartz, Sherry Turkle, and Robb Willer. The result is unlike any social science or humor book we’ve seen before. In Modern Romance, Ansari combines his irreverent humor with cutting-edge social science to give us an unforgettable tour of our new romantic world.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: American-born photographer Levinthal has earned national recognition by creating potent, ironic, and sometimes controversial visions using miniature figures and toys as characters in staged tableaux. Since publishing his first major work in 1977 (Hitler Moves East: A Graphic Chronicle, 1941-43), he has worked with Barbie, blackface memorabilia, toy soldiers, and various modeling figures to explore the icons and stereotypes of popular culture. Levinthal executed his series Modern Romance in the mid-1980s. Echoing the paintings of Edward Hopper and film noir, these are scenes of urban life in dreamy neon-lit color and television blues. Levinthal shows us figures lingering on street corners, entering movie theaters, passing through alleys, conversing in diners, and interacting in confined spaces. He also depicts the impersonal landscape of the city: cop cars on the streets, doorways, and murky bedrooms. Levinthal's lovely and vaguely troubling photographs house a tension of possibilities; with details obscured, they speak of solitude, sexual isolation, and urban anxiety. An illuminating essay by Eugenia Parry opens the book, nicely placing this formative series in both a personal and an artistic context. This is serious art, dealing with fascinating ideas. Highly recommended for contemporary art collections of academic and public libraries. Deborah Miller, Minneapolis--Library Journal

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Modern Romance examines the relationship between the revival of romance form and the ascendancy of the novel in British literary culture, from 1760 to 1850. The revival of romance as the literary embodiment of a national cultural identity provided a metaphor for the 'authenticity' of the novel itself, set against the changing formations of modern life. The material conditions, cultural status and formal repertoire of prose fiction were given a canonical transformation, leading to the form's nineteenth-century heyday, in Scott's Waverley novels. Ian Duncan's illuminating and innovative study begins with the first identification of modern prose fiction with romance form in the late eighteenth-century Gothic novel, and moves through Scott's highly influential dialectical blend of romance and history, to his relations with his successor in the role of national author, Charles Dickens.

As calamity piles on catastrophe, can Maggie Darling brilliantly resolve the collapse of civilization as we wish we knew it?

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: This book offers a new reading of early modern romance in the light of historically contemporary accounts of mind, and specifically the medical tradition of love-melancholy. The book argues that the medical profile of the melancholic lover provides an essential context for understanding the characteristic patterns of romance: narrative deferral, epistemological uncertainty, and the endless quest for a quasi-phantasmic beloved. Unlike many recent studies of romance, this book establishes a detailed historical basis for investigating the psychological structure of romance. Wells begins by tracing the development of the medical disorder first known in the Latin west as amor hereos (lovesickness) from its earliest roots in Greek and Arabic medicine to its translation into the Latin medical tradition. Drawing on this detailed historical material, the book considers three important early modern romances: Ariosto's Orlando Furioso, Tasso's Gerusalemme Liberata, and Spenser's The Faerie Queene, concluding with a brief consideration of the significance of this literary and medical legacy for Romanticism. Most broadly, the interdisciplinary nature of this study allows the author to investigate the central critical problem of early modern subjectivity in substantially new ways.

READING: This early work by James Oliver Curwood was originally published in 1912 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. “Flower of the North”, finds Philip Whittemore on an adventure which takes him to Northern Canada to a land which he thought he knew. However, tucked in among the rocks and hills lies an unfamiliar outpost whose inhabitants and history are shrouded in mystery. James Oliver 'Jim' Curwood was an American action-adventure writer and conservationist. He was born on 12th June, 1878, in Owosso, Michigan, USA. In 1900, Curwood sold his first story while working for the Detroit News-Tribune, and after this, his career in writing was made. By 1909 he had saved enough money to travel to the Canadian northwest, a trip that provided the inspiration for his wilderness adventure stories. The success of his novels afforded him the opportunity to return to the Yukon and Alaska for several months each year – allowing Curwood to write more than thirty such books. This approach gave his work broad commercial appeal and helped drive his appearance on several best-seller lists in the early 1920s. His most successful work was his 1920 novel, The River's End. The book sold more than 100,000 copies and was the fourth best-selling title of the year in the United States, according to Publisher's Weekly. He contributed to various literary and popular magazines throughout his career, and his bibliography includes more than 200 such articles, short stories and serializations. Curwood was an avid hunter in his youth; however, as he grew older, he became an advocate of environmentalism and was appointed to the 'Michigan Conservation Commission' in 1926. The change in his attitude toward wildlife can be best expressed by a quote he gave in The Grizzly King: that 'The greatest thrill is not to kill but to let live.' Despite this change in attitude, Curwood did not have an ultimately fruitful relationship with nature. In 1927, while on a fishing trip in Florida, Curwood was bitten on the thigh by what was believed to have been a spider and he had an immediate allergic reaction. Health problems related to the bite escalated over the next few months as an infection set in. He died soon after in his nearby home on Williams Street, on 13th August 1927. He was aged just forty-nine, and was interred in Oak Hill Cemetery (Owosso), in a family plot. Curwood's legacy lives on however, and his home of Curwood Castle is now a museum.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Een onderzoek van het Amerikaanse ministerie van Justitie uit 2014 toont aan dat in Amerika elk jaar zeker 110.000 vrouwen tussen de 18 en 24 jaar te maken krijgen met seksueel misbruik. Deze vrouwen zijn echter meestal terughoudend met aangifte doen omdat de dader in meer dan 80 procent van de gevallen een bekende is. Terwijl diefstal en witwassen als misdrijf worden beschouwd, geldt dat niet voor verkrachting door een bekende, en bovendien wordt een verkrachtingsslachtoffer vaak met wantrouwen bekeken. Met name wanneer het slachtoffer gedronken heeft of wanneer een vrijwillige vrijpartij in verkrachting is ontaard. Missoula, een plaats in het Amerikaanse Montana, is een typische studentenstad met een levendige sociale scene. Het ministerie van Justitie onderzocht er 350 aanrandingen waarvan tussen 2008 en 2012 aangifte was gedaan. In slechts enkele gevallen werd door de autoriteiten vervolging ingesteld. Jon Krakauer beschrijft de verschillende ervaringen van deze vrouwen in Missoula: over de verkrachting zelf, hun fysieke trauma, de psychologische schade en de argwaan waarmee ze door de politie en hun omgeving bejegend werden. Het is een verbijsterend en somber stemmend relaas, geschreven als een angstaanjagende thriller. Jon Krakauer (1954) was oorspronkelijk timmerman en visser in Alaska tot hij over zijn grootste hobby begon te schrijven: bergbeklimmen. De ijle lucht in betekende zijn doorbraak als schrijver, maar zijn boek De wildernis in zorgde voor wereldwijde roem. Het boek stond twee jaar lang op de bestsellerlijst van The New York Times, waarna het verfilmd werd door topregisseur Sean Penn. De filmpremière van Krakauers boek In de ban van de hemel vindt plaats in oktober 2016. ‘Missoula zal degenen die de stilte al verbroken hebben ongetwijfeld een hart onder de riem steken en degenen die dat nog niet gedurfd hebben bij elkaar brengen. Een actueel en belangrijk boek.’ the la times ‘Krakauer vertelt niet alleen de verhalen achter deze misdaden. Missoula is net zo briljant geschreven als zijn andere boeken en hij situeert het verhaal stevig in de context van de sociale geschiedenis.’ the boston globe
