Been there, done that : family wisdom for modern times
Roker, Al, 1954- author
New York : New American Library, [2016]
Never give up on your dreams -- Kindness is like a boomerang -- It always comes back -- The power of an apology -- Grace under pressure -- Don't confuse the wedding with the marriage -- Family Is forever -- Actions speak louder than words -- I am who I am -- Can you hear me now? -- Learning to slow down -- The importance of friendships -- People are not labels -- Life is full of hard choices.

"Life lessons from New York Times bestselling author and Today show personality Al Roker and his wife, globetrotting ABC news journalist Deborah Roberts. Al Roker and Deborah Roberts have sixteen Emmy Awards between them. They have covered everything from the Olympics and the Gulf War to natural disasters and the AIDS crisis in Africa. Now these two married journalists and parents have collaborated on the most personal and important "story" of their lives. Been There, Done That is a funny, heartfelt, and empowering collection of life lessons, hard-won wisdom, and instructive family anecdotes from Al and Deborah's lives, from their parents and grandparents, and from dear friends, famous and not. Here, Al and Deborah candidly share childhood obstacles like obesity and growing up in the segregated south; the challenges and blessings that come from raising very different kids; hard-won truths about marriage and career; the illuminating "little things" that adults can learn from children; and the genuine wisdom that the elderly can share with a younger generation. These are real-life stories told from every perspective--from parent, spouse, daughter, son, and friend, stories that every reader can relate to, appreciate, and share."--

Cheap novelties : the pleasures of urban decay, with Julius Knipl, real estate photographer
Katchor, Ben, author,
Montreal : Drawn & Quarterly, 2016
Cheap Novelties is an early testament to Ben Katchor's extraordinary prescience as both a gifted cartoonist and an astute urban chronicler. Rumpled, middle-aged Julius Knipl photographs a vanishing city--an urban landscape of low-rent apartment buildings, obsolete industries, monuments to forgotten people and events, and countless sources of inexpensive food. In Katchor's signature pen and ink wash style, Cheap Novelties is a portrait of what we have lost to gentrification, globalization, and the malling of America that is as moving today as it was twenty-five years ago.In 1991, the original Cheap Novelties appeared in an unassuming paperback from the RAW contributor; it would become one of the first books of the contemporary graphic novel golden age, and it set the stage for Katchor to become regarded as a modern-day cartooning genius. Drawn & Quarterly's twenty-fifth anniversary edition is a deluxe hardcover.

Reading the silver screen : a film lover's guide to decoding the art form that moves
Foster, Thomas C., author
New York : Harper Perennial, 2016
Seeing is believing -- The camera does the thinking for us -- Shot, scene, sequence! -- Silence is golden -- In between the dark and the light -- Image is everything -- Near and far -- Art without color -- What happens during popcorn time -- Whose story is it? What what's his story? -- How many heads--and where are they? -- In the frame -- Highly generic -- Novels into films -- Movie magic -- You can't step into the same movies twice -- Listen to the music -- Figuratively speaking -- Masters of all that they survey -- Masters of all that they survey -- Put it to the test.

"No art form is as instantly and continuously gratifying as film. When the house lights go down and the lion roars, we settle in to be shocked, frightened, elated, moved, and thrilled. We expect magic. While we're being exhilarated and terrified, our minds are also processing data of all sorts--visual, linguistic, auditory, spatial--to collaborate in the construction of meaning. Thomas C. Foster's Reading the Silver Screen will show movie buffs, students of film, and even aspiring screenwriters and directors how to transition from merely being viewers to becoming accomplished readers of this great medium. Beginning with the grammar of film, Foster demonstrates how every art form has a grammar, a set of practices and if-then propositions that amount to rules. He goes on to explain how the language of film enables movies to communicate the purpose behind their stories and the messages they are striving to convey to audiences by following and occasionally breaking these rules. In Reading the Silver Screen, readers will gain the expertise and confidence to glean all they can from the movies they love,"

When in French : love in a second language
Collins, Lauren (Journalist)
New York : Penguin Press, 2016
The past perfect : le plus-que-parfait -- The imperfect : l'imparfait -- The past : le passé composé -- The present : le présent -- The conditional : le conditionnel -- The subjunctive : le subjonctif -- The future : le futur.

"A language barrier is no match for love. Lauren Collins discovered this firsthand when, in her early thirties, she moved to London and fell for a Frenchman named Olivier-- a surprising turn of events for someone who didn't have a passport until she was in college. But what does it mean to love someone in a second language? Collins wonders, as her relationship with Olivier continues to grow entirely in English. Are there things she doesn't understand about Olivier, having never spoken to him in his native tongue? Does 'I love you' even mean the same thing as 'je t'aime'? When the couple, newly married, relocates to Francophone Geneva, Collins-- fearful of one day becoming 'a Borat of a mother' who doesn't understand her own kids-- decides to answer her questions for herself by learning French. When in French is a laugh-out-loud funny and surprising memoir about the lengths we go to for love, as well as an exploration across culture and history into how we learn languages-- and what they say about who we are. Collins grapples with the complexities of the French language, enduring excruciating role-playing games with her classmates at a Swiss language school and accidentally telling her mother-in-law that she's given birth to a coffee machine. In learning French, Collins must wrestle with the very nature of French identity and society-- which, it turns out, is a far cry from life back home in North Carolina. Plumbing the mysterious depths of humanity's many forms of language, Collins describes with great style and wicked humor the frustrations, embarrassments, surprises, and, finally, joys of learning-- and living in-- French"--

"Raised by her father to be the ultimate human weapon, Cassandra Cain is a fighter like no other. At only 17, the teenaged assassin takes down enemies three times her size without batting an eye. Her incredible skills come at a cost, however: unable to speak or write, Cassandra instead reads body language as naturally as breathing, an ability that makes her even deadlier. But after Batman witnesses her save the life of Commissioner Gordon during the events of "No Man's Land," the Dark Knight sees in Cassandra the successor to the Batgirl name. Now, under the tutelage of Barbara Gordon, the original Batgirl herself, Cassandra Cain must find a new purpose in keeping Gotham City safe, and make amends for her violent past. But can someone who was born to kill ever be worthy to take up the cowl of a fallen legend?"--Cover.

Epitaphs : a dying art
edited by Samuel Fanous
Oxford : Bodleian Library, 2016
Epitaphs brings together more than 250 epitaphs from cemeteries, churchyards, monuments, and historical records. Some announce the cause of death with a surprisingly macabre sense of humor: "Here lies John Ross. Kicked by a hoss." Others wryly remind readers of their own impending mortality, such as a tombstone whose rhyming inscription reads "As I am now you will surely be. / Prepare thyself to follow me." In death as in life, many of the most famous writers were not at a loss for words. As tribute to a form of expression that is very much alive, Epitaphs collects some of the most intriguing examples, many of which perfectly encapsulate the person buried beneath them.

Nollywood : the creation of Nigerian film genres
Haynes, Jonathan, author
Chicago ; The University of Chicago Press, 2016
Nigeria's Nollywood has rapidly grown into one of the world's largest film industries, radically altering media environments across Africa and in the diaspora; it has also become one of African culture's most powerful and consequential expressions, powerfully shaping how Africans see themselves and are seen by others. With this book, Jonathan Haynes provides an accessible and authoritative introduction to this vast industry and its film culture. Haynes describes the major Nigerian film genres and how they relate to Nigerian society its values, desires, anxieties, and social tensions as the country and its movies have developed together over the turbulent past two decades. As he shows, Nollywood is a form of popular culture; it produces a flood of stories, repeating the ones that mean the most to its broad audience. He interprets these generic stories and the cast of mythic figures within them: the long-suffering wives, the business tricksters, the Bible-wielding pastors, the kings in their traditional regalia, the glamorous young professionals, the emigrants stranded in New York or London, and all the rest. Based on more than twenty years of research, Haynes's survey of Nollywood's history and genres is unprecedented in scope, while his book also vividly describes landmark films, leading directors, and the complex character of this major branch of world cinema.

TV (the book) : two experts pick the greatest American shows of all time
Sepinwall, Alan, 1973- author
New York : Grand Central Publishing, 2016
The great debate: how do you pick the best show of all time? -- The inner circle -- No-doubt-about-it classics -- Groundbreakers and workhorses -- Outlier classics -- Works in progress -- A certain regard -- Miniseries -- TV-movies -- Live plays made for television.

"While working at the Newark Star-Ledger, Matt Zoller Seitz and Alan Sepinwall created a popular column debating the merits of then-current television. Eventually they went on to successful careers as critics elsewhere, but the debate raged on and now comes to an epic conclusion in TV (THE BOOK). Alan and Matt have established The Pantheon of top TV shows using a complex, obsessively all-encompassing ranking system by which to order and stack them up against each other. With a mix of lively entries on critically acclaimed and commercially successful classics such as Seinfeld, The Sopranos, Star Trek, The Simpsons and Twin Peaks and illuminating essays on short-lived favorites such as Taxi, Freaks and Geeks, and My So-Called Life, TV (THE BOOK) is sure to spark conversation and debate among readers. TV (THE BOOK) is a must-have for long-time television and film buffs and for young enthusiasts who, fresh off their latest Netflix binge, are looking to expand their knowledge of the medium and wondering what show to start streaming next"--

Gestures of testimony : torture, trauma, and affect in literature
Richardson, Michael, 1980- author
New York : Bloomsbury Academic, 2016
Introduction: Gesturing the Unrepresentable -- Tortured Bodies -- Reading Torture -- Seeing Torture -- Writing Trauma -- Witnessing and the Poetics of Trauma -- Writing Torturous Affect -- Conclusion: Speaking Beyond Words.

"After 9/11, the United States became a nation that sanctioned torture. Detainees across the globe were waterboarded, deprived of sleep, beaten by guards, blasted with deafening music and forced into obscene acts. Their torture presents a profound problem for literature: torturous pain and its traumatic aftermath have long been held to destroy language, shatter experience, and refuse representation. Challenging accepted thinking, Gestures of Testimony: Torture, Trauma, and Affect in Literature asks how literature might bear witness to the tortures of a war waged against fear itself. Bringing the vibrant field of affect theory to bear on theories of torture and power, Richardson adopts an interdisciplinary approach to show how testimony founded in affect can bear witness to torture and its traumas. Grounded in provocative readings of fiction by George Orwell, Franz Kafka, Arthur Koestler, Anne Michaels and Janette Turner Hospital, poems by Guantanamo detainees, memoirs of interrogators and detainees, contemporary films, and the Torture Memos of the Bush Administration, the analysis traverses politics, law and cinema to re-think literary testimony. Drawing upon some of the most influential thinkers of recent times on power, affect, trauma and torture, the book does more than critique culture and literature: it proposes new practices of literary witnessing. Gestures of Testimony gives shape to a mode of gestural testimony, a reaching beyond the page in the writing of torture in fiction that reveals the shape, depth and intensity of violent trauma-even as it embodies its veiling."--

Literature and animal studies
Ortiz-Robles, Mario, 1964- author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2016
What is it like to be a trope? -- Equids (might and right) -- Canids (companionship, cunning, domestication) -- Songbirds (poetry and environment) -- Felids (enigma and fur) -- Animal revolutions (allegory and politics).

"Why do animals talk in literature? In this provocative book, Mario Ortiz Robles tracks the presence of animals across an expansive literary archive to argue that literature cannot be understood as a human endeavor apart from its capacity to represent animals. Focusing on the literary representation of familiar animals, including horses, dogs, cats, and songbirds, Ortiz Robles examines the various tropes literature has historically employed to give meaning to our fraught relations with other animals. Beyond allowing us to imagine the lives of non-humans, literature can make a lasting contribution to Animal Studies, an emerging discipline within the humanities, by showing us that there is something fictional about our relation to animals. Literature and Animal Studies combines a broad mapping of literary animals with detailed readings of key animal texts to offer a new way of organizing literary history that emphasizes genera over genres and a new way of classifying animals that is premised on tropes rather than taxa. The book makes us see animals and our relation to them with fresh eyes and, in doing so, prompts us to review the role of literature in a culture that considers it an endangered art form." -- Publisher's description

A life in parts
Cranston, Bryan, 1956- author
New York : Scribner, 2016
Bryan Cranston landed his first role at seven, when his father cast him in a United Way commercial. Acting was clearly the boy's destiny, until one day his father disappeared. Destiny suddenly took a backseat to survival. Now Cranston maps his zigzag journey from abandoned son to beloved star by recalling the many odd parts he's played in real life: paperboy, farmhand, security guard, dating consultant, murder suspect, dock loader, lover, husband, father. Cranston also chronicles his evolution on camera, from soap opera player trying to master the rules of show business to character actor turning in classic performances as Seinfeld dentist Tim Whatley, 'a sadist with newer magazines, ' and Malcolm in the Middle dad Hal Wilkerson, a lovable bumbler in tighty-whities. He also gives an inspiring account of how he prepared, physically and mentally, for the challenging role of President Lyndon Johnson, a tour de force that won him a Tony to go along with his four Emmys. Of course, Cranston dives deep into the grittiest details of his greatest role, explaining how he searched inward for the personal darkness that would help him create one of the most memorable performances ever captured on screen: Walter White, chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin. Cranston has much to say about creativity, devotion, and craft, as well as innate talent and its challenges and benefits and proper maintenance. But ultimately A Life in Parts is a story about the joy, the necessity, and the transformative power of simple hard work.

Critics, monsters, fanatics, and other literary essays
Ozick, Cynthia, author
Boston : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016
"In a collection that includes new essays written explicitly for this volume, one of our sharpest and most influential critics confronts the past, present, and future of literary culture. If every outlet for book criticism suddenly disappeared -- if all we had were reviews that treated books like any other commodity -- could the novel survive? In a gauntlet-throwing essay at the start of this brilliant assemblage, Cynthia Ozick stakes the claim that, just as surely as critics require a steady supply of new fiction, novelists need great critics to build a vibrant community on the foundation of literary history. For decades, Ozick herself has been one of our great critics, as these essays so clearly display. She offers models of critical analysis of writers from the mid-twentieth century to today, from Saul Bellow, Bernard Malamud, and Kafka, to William Gass and Martin Amis, all assembled in provocatively named groups: Fanatics, Monsters, Figures, and others. Uncompromising and brimming with insight, these essays are essential reading for anyone facing the future of literature in the digital age"--

Transnational orientalisms in contemporary Spanish and Latin American cinema
edited by Michele C. Dávila Gonçalves
Newcastle upon Tyne, UK : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2016
1. The Latin dragon: the remasculization of the "Oriental" male in Marko Zaror's films / Moisés Park -- 2. Orientalist rhetoric in 'Un cuento chino' and 'Biutiful': is it possible to turn the discourse on itself? / Kenneth Reeds -- 3. "My home is your home": the Maghreb intersectionality in 'Retorno a Hansala' by Chus Gutiérrez / Fátima Serra -- 4. The "Oriental" subject in Brazil's melting pot: portrayals of Jewishness in 'O ano em que meus pais saíram de férias' / Michele C. Dávila Gonçalves.

The transnational representation of the "Oriental" subject, namely Arabs and Jews, Chinese and other ethnic groups that have migrated to Spain and Latin America, is now being seen anew in both literature and cinema. This book examines the new ways of seeing and interpreting both the Middle East and the East in contemporary films, in which many of the immigrants traditionally omitted from the dominant narratives are able to present the trauma, memories and violence of their exile and migration. As such, this volume explores the representation of those single and doubly marginalized groups in contemporary Spanish and Latin American cinema, analysing how films from Spain, Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Argentina portray transnational subjects from a wide spectrum of the "Orient" world, including Maghrebs from North Africa, and Palestinian, Jewish, Chinese, and Korean peoples. The old stereotypical orientalist ways of seeing these groups are beginning to change to a more authentic representation, although, in some cases, they may still reside in the subtext of films.--

Mary Astor's purple diary : the great American sex scandal of 1936
Sorel, Edward, 1929- author
New York : Liveright Publishing Company, a division of W.W. Norton & Company, [2016]
In 1936 newspapers were ablaze with a scandalous child custody trial taking place in Hollywood and starring the actress Mary Astor; the story pushed Hitler and Franco off the front pages. George S. Kaufman, then the most successful playwright on Broadway and a married man to boot, had been Astor's lover. The scandal revolved around Marys diary, which her ex-husband, Dr. Franklyn Thorpe, had found when they were still together. Mary, he claimed, had not only kept a tally of all her extramarital affairs but graded them-- and he already alerted the press in order to obtain a divorce and get custody of their daughter. Sorel provides all the juicy details of this particular slice of Hollywood Babylon, including Mary's life as a child star, and her teenage love affair with the much older John Barrymore.

Chaudet, Chloé, author
Paris : Classiques Garnier, 2016
"Loin d'être dépassée, la notion d'engagement reste, au prix de certains élargissements, efficace et fructueuse pour penser la littérature. Partant de l'évolution, au cours de la seconde moitié du XXe siècle, de discours cristallisés par Jean-Paul Sartre, cet ouvrage propose une typologie de l'engagement littéraire contemporain à l'échelle internationale. Par une étude sociocritique, il confronte les modalités de l'engagement de neuf auteur.e.s, dont les oeuvres ont pu apparaître sulfureuses (P. Handke, S. Rushdie), dont les postures politiques ont été honorées par le prix Nobel de littérature (J. M. G. Le Clézio, T. Morrison, O. Pamuk), ou dont les luttes et visées humanistes méritent d'être mieux connues (W. Dirie, T. Nasreen, B. Okri, L. Septilveda)."--Page 4 of cover.

Bandes dessinées et religions : des cases et des dieux
Philippe Delisle
Paris : Éditions Karthala, [2016]
"La BD a souvent mis en scène des croyances ou pratiques religieuses. Certains auteurs se contentent de faire écho à la culture ambiante. Mais d'autres nourrissent une réflexion sur la foi ou sur l'histoire des structures confessionnelles. D'autres enfin font oeuvre prosélyte, cherchent à convaincre par le biais des cases et des bulles. De tels liens suscitent de multiples interrogations. Quelles limites peuvent imposer aux dessinateurs et aux scénaristes les canons d'un culte ou un clergé? Quelles solutions adoptent les auteurs pour faire entrer le spirituel dans la logique des strips et des planches? Comment une "nouvelle BD", plus adulte et plus irrévérencieuse, renouvelle-t-elle le traitement des sujets religieux? Cet ouvrage entend aborder de telles questions de la manière la plus large possible. On y évoquera en effet l'école franco-belge, mais aussi les comics, les mangas, et des productions moins connues, comme les BD arabes et turques, israéliennes, africaines. De même, diverses religions seront prises en compte : le christianisme, l'islam, le judaïsme, le bouddhisme, mais aussi un prophétisme africain comme le kimbanguisme."--Page 4 of cover.

Re-imagining DEFA : East German cinema in its national and transnational contexts
edited by Sean Allan and Sebastian Heiduschke
New York : Berghahn Books, 2016
By the time the Berlin Wall collapsed, the cinema of the German Democratic Republic-to the extent it was considered at all-was widely regarded as a footnote to European film history, with little of enduring value. Since then, interest in East German cinema has exploded, inspiring innumerable festivals, books, and exhibits on the GDR's rich and varied filmic output. In Re-Imagining DEFA, leading international experts take stock of this vibrant landscape and plot an ambitious course for future research, one that considers other cinematic traditions, brings genre and popular works into the fold, and encompasses DEFA's complex post-unification "afterlife."

Pensée de l'archipel et lieux de passage
Dominique Faria (dir.) ; introduction Éric Fougère
Paris : Pétra, 2016
"Douze auteurs ont ici pour ambition de penser l'archipel : ensemble dites. Au delà de la réalité géographique, en particulier des Açores, on découvre une entité complexe où l'imaginaire et la rationalité font jouer simultanément le pluriel et l'unité, la discontinuité fragmentaire et la contiguïté réticulaire. On pensera l'archipel en tant qu'il aide à penser le monde. Une diversité d'approches alterne ainsi les archipels philosophiques, artistiques, ethnologiques et littéraires en multipliant les croisements possibles et les rapprochements nécessaires entre les îles que nous sommes et la relation qui nous invente."--Page 4 of cover.

Alcalá de Henares : Universidad de Alcalá, Servicio de Publicaciones, [2015]
Postwar marked a period of social Catholic restoration for Spain, and at the same time the beginning of a new phase in national cinema based on diverse themes of inquietude. A new period for the relationship between catholicism and cinema had been established.

To Pixar and beyond : my unlikely journey with Steve Jobs to make entertainment history
Levy, Lawrence author
Boston : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016
"After Steve Jobs was unceremoniously dismissed from Apple in the early 1990's, while building his failed competitor NeXT, he made a side bet to develop a little-known, barely profitable video graphics company called Pixar. One day, out of the blue, Jobs called Lawrence Levy, a Harvard-trained attorney, in the hope that Jobs could somehow persuade Levy to join forces with him in his quest to energize Pixar. Somehow, despite Pixar's very modest beginnings, Levy, Jobs, and studio chief Ed Catmull, were able to shape it into the world's most creative motion picture company. This is Levy's account of those early beginnings at Pixar, of his friendship with Jobs, and how they were able to join forces to transform Pixar into one of Hollywood's greatest success stories"--
