aka: Book of Fever / Lamore, Jean., 2006

 Item
Identifier: CC-47050-49788
Scope and Contents

Web Site: Lamore's novel, written mostly in a working class suburb of Paris, and the product of 6 years of intense and wildly eclectic research ranging from African geo-politics to ornithology (Lamore's father is an expert on rare birds) has been compared to Anthony Burgess's Clockwork Orange, Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow, and Dante's Purgatory. Aside from a short excerpt published in FRANK's recent issue of Expat Writing, the work has been kept from public view. AKA by Jean Lamore is one of the most innovative and thought-provoking novels to emerge so far in the 21st century. Set in Paris, New York, and diverse parts of Africa, AKA is a rambunctious romp through almost everything we know about both life and language. Both upsetting and amusing at once in the best sense of both words. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

prvni lide na Mesici [The First Men in the Moon] / Hoffmeister, Adolf ; Wells, Herbert George., 1964

 Item
Identifier: CC-51750-72850
Scope and Contents

Herbert George Wells (21 September 1866 -- 13 August 1946) was an English author, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics and social commentary, even writing text books. Together with Jules Verne, Wells has been referred to as "The Father of Science Fiction." Wells was an outspoken socialist and sympathetic to pacifist views, although he supported the First World War once it was under way, and his later works became increasingly political and didactic. His middle-period novels (1900--1920) were less science-fictional; they covered lower-middle class life (The History of Mr Polly) and the "New Woman" and the Suffragettes (Ann Veronica).Adolf Hoffmeister provided 18 collages to illustrate this book. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
