READING: Charlie gaat naar de bovenbouw. Hij is zeker geen sukkel, maar populair is hij ook niet. Zijn verlegen, hyperintelligente en sociaal onaangepaste karakter zorgt ervoor dat hij een muurbloempje blijft. Charlie probeert op zijn eigen manier vat te krijgen op de wereld van dates, familiedrama's, seks en drugs. Gelukkig heeft hij vrienden die hem hier af en toe bij helpen. Op zijn eigen unieke, aandoenlijke en aangrijpende manier vertelt Charlie zijn verhaal aan de enige persoon die hij vertrouwt. Aan jou. Stephen Chbosky (1970) is auteur, scriptschrijver en regisseur. Zijn debuut De belevenissen van een muurbloem was direct bij verschijning een succes. Het veroorzaakte veel opschudding in Amerika, omdat het daar op veel scholen werd verboden vanwege de controversiële inhoud. Chbosky woont in New York. 'De belevenissen van een muurbloem is volwassener dan de meeste young adult-literatuur en zal ook zeker door oudere lezers gewaardeerd worden.' denise kersten, usa today 'Dit verhaal over zijn leven zal tieners nog jaren bezighouden.' school library journal

READING: A modern cult classic, a major motion picture and a timeless bestseller, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story. Charlie is not the biggest geek in high school, but he's by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it, Charlie is attempting to navigate through the uncharted territory of high school. The world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends. The world of sex, drugs, and music - when all one requires to feel infinite is that perfect song on that perfect drive. Standing on the fringes of life Charlie has a unique perspective of the world around him, but there comes a time to stop being a wallflower and see what it looks like from the dance floor. This haunting novel about the dilemma of passivity vs. passion has become a modern classic. Charlie's letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating and through Charlie, Stephen Chbosky has created a deeply affecting story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller coaster days known as growing up. 'Chobsky captures adolescent angst, confusion and joy... Compelling.' Booklist 'This wistful, sensitive novel perfectly captures the uncertainty and excitement of adolescence, and has become a deserving modern classic.' Scottish Book Trust 'A coming-of-age tale in the tradition of THE CATCHER IN THE RYE and A SEPARATE PEACE... [Chbosky's] poignant reflections on life, love and friendship are often inspirational and always beautifully written.' USA Today

READING: ABOUT THE BOOK Stephen Chbosky's book may be younger than its adolescent protagonist, but it has had an eventful life so far. The Perks of Being a Wallflower has proved to be one of the most controversial novels of recent years - and one of the most popular with its target audience of teenagers. Polymath Chbosky set out to write a very different novel but found that a single line from that first manuscript kept ringing in his head: "I guess that's just one of the perks of being a wallflower." This inspired him to develop the idea and the character of Charlie, the "wallflower" of the title. Set in 1991, the epistolary novel takes us through the troubled Charlie's freshman year, and the events leading up to a horrible personal discovery that turns his happier childhood memories upside down. In 1999, MTV acquired the title. Word of mouth made it a near-instant success, with teenagers devouring its themes of angst, isolation, and ostracisation in high school. MEET THE AUTHOR Born and raised in Chicago before settling in the San Francisco Bay Area, award-winning writer Zaki Hasan is a professor of communication and media studies, and has been a media scholar and critic for more than fifteen years. He is co-author of Quirk Books' Geek Wisdom: The Sacred Teachings of Nerd Culture, and his work has been featured in Q-News, Illume, and The Huffington Post. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Chbosky's epistolary novel begins with our anonymous narrator/letter-writer calling himself Charlie to avoid being identified and recounting a series of events ignited by the mysterious suicide of fellow student Michael Dobson. The letters are addressed to someone who may have known Dobson, but who Charlie has not personally met. He chooses the addressee because he hears that the former had "decided not to sleep with someone even though they could have". Dobson is a cipher whose death allows Charlie to engage for the first time with his fellow pupils in a compulsory group counselling session, held by the school. Dobson was also his only friend in middle school and the wide emotional reaction to his death makes Charlie keenly aware of the hypocritical attitude of the other students. On the cusp of being a freshman, Charlie writes to the unknown figure about his own family and the quiet unspoken grievances he notes between them. Most poignantly, he feels even more isolated by the fact that his older brother and sister are entering into the "real world" – college and relationships respectively. Privately, Charlie still finds himself missing his Aunt Helen, who had lived briefly with the family during what he recalls as the happiest years of his young life.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Naakte lunch verscheen in 1959 in Parijs bij Olympia Press (die ook Henry Miller publiceerden) onder de titel The Naked Lunch, waarbij het lidwoord werd toegevoegd door de Parijse redacteur. In 1962 verscheen het bij Grove Press onder de titel Naked Lunch in Amerika. Naakte lunch is een roman die, zoals het een baanbrekend boek betaamt, het begin (en eind) van een tijdperk is, en de grenzen van de fictie verlegt. Het centrale verhaal van Naakte lunch is dat van de drugsverslaafde William Lee, die in narcotische staat pendelt tussen New York, Tanger en een nachtmerrieachtig landschap dat Interzone wordt genoemd. Deze uitgave bevat niet eerder gepubliceerde essays van Burroughs over de roman, en een appendix die ruim twintig procent met nieuw materiaal bevat.

READING: SUMMARY: What is most notable about this funny, touching, memorable first novel from Stephen Chbosky is the resounding accuracy with which the author captures the voice of a boy teetering on the brink of adulthood. Charlie is a freshman. And while's he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. He's a wallflower--shy and introspective, and intelligent beyond his years, if not very savvy in the social arts. We learn about Charlie through the letters he writes to someone of undisclosed name, age, and gender, a stylistic technique that adds to the heart-wrenching earnestness saturating this teen's story. Charlie encounters the same struggles that many kids face in high school--how to make friends, the intensity of a crush, family tensions, a first relationship, exploring sexuality, experimenting with drugs--but he must also deal with his best friend's recent suicide. Charlie's letters take on the intimate feel of a journal as he shares his day-to-day thoughts and feelings: I walk around the school hallways and look at the people. I look at the teachers and wonder why they're here. If they like their jobs. Or us. And I wonder how smart they were when they were fifteen. Not in a mean way. In a curious way. It's like looking at all the students and wondering who's had their heart broken that day, and how they are able to cope with having three quizzes and a book report due on top of that. Or wondering who did the heart breaking. And wondering why. With the help of a teacher who recognizes his wisdom and intuition, and his two friends, seniors Samantha and Patrick, Charlie mostly manages to avoid the depression he feels creeping up like kudzu. When it all becomes too much, after a shocking realization about his beloved late Aunt Helen, Charlie retreats from reality for awhile. But he makes it back in due time, ready to face his sophomore year and all that it may bring. Charlie, sincerely searching for that feeling of "being infinite," is a kindred spirit to the generation that's been slapped with the label X. --Brangien Davis SUMMARY: What is most notable about this funny, touching, memorable first novel from Stephen Chbosky is the resounding accuracy with which the author captures the voice of a boy teetering on the brink of adulthood.

READING: The thesis focuses on taboo topics in Stephen Chbosky's novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower, such as alcohol, drugs, sex, teenage pregnancy, abortion, homosexuality, violence, offensive language and child abuse. The realistic portrayal of these controversial topics led to complaints from parents - namely, that the novel's content is unsuitable for their children. The novel was challenged and banned repeatedly from schools and libraries in America, which means that it was no longer available for students to read. Some call this prohibition of the novel within schools censorship, which has sparked much debate on whether one individual complaining about a book has the right to determine what all students can or cannot read in school. This thesis takes into account and analyses opinions of parents, teachers, teenagers, the author of the novel Stephen Chbosky and some organisations involved in the fight for or against the banning of the novel. Since The Perks of Being a Wallflower is not as well-known in Slovenia as it is in America, Andrej Predin's novel Na zeleno vejo is referred to in order to see how people in Slovenia reacted to a similarly controversial novel.

READING: ‘Toen ik de roman voor het eerst las, werd ik gegrepen door de personages, stuk voor stuk mensen van vlees en bloed en tegelijkertijd larger than life. [...] Het is een meeslepende, verslavende roman die erom schreeuwde op toneel te worden gezet.’ Ivo van Hove, regisseur bij Toneelgroep Amsterdam ‘Met deze roman geeft Rand je een mentaal wapen om door de jungle van het opportunisme te kappen.’ Adelheid Roosen ‘Een absolute aanrader. Geschreven in 1943, maar nog steeds actueel.’ Chris Zegers ‘Ayn Rand gaf me kracht. Ik heb het boek in één ruk uitgelezen.’ Bert van der Veer , tv-maker ‘Het beste boek aller tijden. Dicht bij jezelf blijven of aan andermans verwachtingen voldoen, dat zijn herkenbare dilemma’s.’ Hanna Verboom De eeuwige bron is het portret van de jonge, briljante architect Howard Roark. Een architect die weigert concessies te doen aan zijn opdrachtgevers, weigert zich in te likken bij de toonaangevende commissies. Tegen alle conventionele standaarden en normen in blijft hij ontwerpen creëren waar hij zelf achter staat. Tegelijkertijd is Roark verwikkeld in een gecompliceerde relatie met de mooie, geheimzinnige vrouw van wie hij houdt. Ayn Rand (1905-1982) is een invloedrijke schrijfster en filosofe. Ze werd geboren in Sint-Petersburg en zag als opgroeiend meisje de negatieve kanten van de Russische revolutie. Na haar afstuderen emigreerde ze in 1926 naar de Verenigde Staten, in haar ogen het land waar een individu zichzelf kan zijn. Wereldberoemd werd ze na het verschijnen van De eeuwige bron, een boek waarover velen zeggen: ‘Dit boek heeft mijn leven veranderd.’
