Summary: This rich ethnography in a rural village in North Bali illuminates the construction of desire by exploring cultural practices regarding courtship and marriage, motherhood, and connubial fidelity. The way these cornerstones of daily life are played out in the alternative arenas of tourism and illness highlight pervasive gender disparities in the expression of sexuality. By allowing key informants to tell their stories in their own voices and by skillfully interweaving fictionalized interludes, the author gives us not only a rigorously researched ethnography but an intimate and fully realized portrait of Balinese women's innermost desires.

Because of his androgynous look, Nisha suggests that Amar walks the ramp as a female model in her designer friend Richa Sharmas fashion show. Initially reluctant, Amar finally agrees to Nishas bizarre plan and, with the latters grooming, successfully debuts as a model, Varsha, earning a handsome appearance fee as well. Son of a poor village priest, Amar is dominated by her elder sisters who dont appreciate their one and only brother catwalking in female attire. His sisters, however, have their own agenda in which Amar has to play a supportive role. Nisha also has her hidden agenda: she wants Amar to fill up the vacant slot of a toyboy for his gay husband, Vinod, who is an architect by profession with a passion for Feng Shui and Vastu. Amar doesnt enjoy Vinods advances but has to tolerate him because he loves Nisha. Even as Amar tries hard to sort out his tangled relationships with Nisha and Vinod, his weird sisters come to stay with him, one after another, and make his life difficult with their idiosyncrasies. When he finds Nisha snorting cocaine in a party, Amar opts out of Nishas glitzy world and returns to his humble moorings. Even his sisters abandon Amar and he descends to a miserable existence, surviving on the charity of his neighbours. Its Nisha who finally rescues Amar from a total breakdown. Sisters And Lovers is a comic novel that takes a sneaky peek at the modelling profession and delves deep into the vagaries of familial relationships that often turn out to be hilarious as well as problematic.

Summary: Literary flare passions from the roots of rejuvenation with regeneration as side, which, rather than being supernaturally constituted, shows semantic drift towards a somatic of colloquial derivations. For that brush of jacket collars in the side street you thigh on waste whilst twisting to the pub, for the old bars of money that cool your hips for auditory sprinkles songs drumming the tune of your cognitive motor to transmute chemistry up from your cells. In the dialects and runs from payment rows at the end of a hard days work where new derision philologies created connective benignity disputes, perhaps with other cities and ruralities to blanket universal pay by reward, proportional. Entries. For the thrush, the jaguar threading grass stems, the master sparrow thatcher, the strong organisational lion of the jungle animals, the horse of the war. Seeing waves sweep over the land in national assertions that economic change has determined. Once just a shout, but now the game is being sold. Although evolution steps up sometimes when our brows merely need to be caressed by another, it's scientific enzymes define every part of our lives. Genetic inheritance glints the tinder and shakes the hinds, and it is the case that where strongly or quietly, and secretly is allowed, we all believe that evolutionary biology renders our wit, or most of us do. I believe in the sensual.

  • Release Date : 2012-10-25
  • Category: Religion
  • Pages : 184
  • ISBN Code: 056730616X

Summary: Jonathan Rowe examines David and Jonathan's friendship in the context of what ancient readers would have understood as the 'natural' loyalty to their families. He focuses on the conflicting moral goods between which the men choose, seeking to understand the dynamics of the narrative consonant with ancient society. Rowe discusses theoretical issues of interpretation and summarises how Bakhtin's theory of heteroglossic voices can be utilised to understand the narrative. He deliberates over the key aspects of family life in the world described by the Old Testament, surveys approaches to the study of the family among anthropologists and, finally, states how anthropology can inform the interpretation of the biblical text. Starting from the concept of 'hegemonic masculinity', Rowe examines how men in general are presented positively, and then shows how Jonathan, David and Saul measure up to these standards. Rowe concludes that although Jonathan was disloyal to his family, something that implied readers would have censured, the books of Samuel present this disloyalty as honourable, thus making a theological point about fidelity to the house of David.

Models of Collaboration in Nineteenth-Century French Literature Book by Seth Whidden

Models of Collaboration in Nineteenth-Century French Literature Book
  • Author : Seth Whidden
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Release Date : 2016-04-15
  • Category: Literary Criticism
  • Pages : 202
  • ISBN Code: 1317094832

Summary: Contributing to the current lively discussion of collaboration in French letters, this collection raises fundamental questions about the limits and definition of authorship in the context of the nineteenth century's explosion of collaborative ventures. While the model of the stable single author that prevailed during the Romantic period dominates the beginning of the century, the authority of the speaking subject is increasingly in crisis through the century's political and social upheavals. Chapters consider the breakdown of authorial presence across different constructions of authorship, including the numerous cenacles of the Romantic period; collaborative ventures in poetry through the practice of the "Tombeaux" and as seen in the Album zutique; the interplay of text and image through illustrations for literary works; the collective ventures of literary journals; and multi-author prose works by authors such as the Goncourt brothers and Erckmann-Chatrian. Interdisciplinary in scope, these essays form a cohesive investigation of collaboration that extends beyond literature to include journalism and the relationships and tensions between literature and the arts. The volume will interest scholars of nineteenth-century French literature, and more generally, any scholar interested in what's at stake in redefining the role of the French author

Investing: The Last Liberal Art Book by Robert G. Hagstrom

Investing: The Last Liberal Art Book

  • Publisher : Columbia University Press
  • Release Date : 2013-01-08
  • Category: Business & Economics
  • Pages : 216
  • ISBN Code: 023153101X

Summary: Robert G. Hagstrom is one of the best-known authors of investment books for general audiences. Turning his extensive experience as a portfolio manager at Legg Mason Capital Management into valuable guidance for professionals and nonprofessionals alike, he is the author of six successful books on investment, including The Warren Buffett Way, a New York Times best-seller that has sold more than a million copies. In this updated second edition of Investing: The Last Liberal Art, Hagstrom explores basic and fundamental investing concepts in a range of fields outside of economics, including physics, biology, sociology, psychology, philosophy, and literature. He discusses, for instance, how the theory of evolution disrupts the notion of the efficient market and how reading strategies for literature can be gainfully applied to investing research. Building on Charlie Munger's famous "latticework of mental models" concept, Hagstrom argues that it is impossible to make good investment decisions based solely on a strong knowledge of finance theory alone. He reinforces his concepts with additional data and a new chapter on mathematics, and updates his text throughout to reflect the developments of the past decade, particularly the seismic economic upheaval of 2008. He has also added a hundred new titles to the invaluable reading list concluding the book. Praise for the first edition: "I read this book in one sitting: I could not put it down."—Peter L. Bernstein, author of Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk "Elegant and irresistible. Robert G. Hagstrom makes the complex clear as he confidently crisscrosses through the disciplines of finance, biology, physics, and literature. The only way to understand investing better, [Investing] shows, is to understand the world better. Ideas spark off the page at every turn. This is simply a gem of a book."—James Surowiecki, New Yorker "Investing is a brisk and engaging read, and it is a pleasure to be in the presence of Hagstrom's agile mind."—International Herald Tribune

Egypt in the Future Tense Book by Samuli Schielke

Egypt in the Future Tense Book
  • Author : Samuli Schielke
  • Publisher : Indiana University Press
  • Release Date : 2015-03-05
  • Category: History
  • Pages : 274
  • ISBN Code: 0253015898

Summary: Against the backdrop of the revolutionary uprisings of 2011–2013, Samuli Schielke asks how ordinary Egyptians confront the great promises and grand schemes of religious commitment, middle class respectability, romantic love, and political ideologies in their daily lives, and how they make sense of the existential anxieties and stalled expectations that inevitably accompany such hopes. Drawing on many years of study in Egypt and the life stories of rural, lower-middle-class men before and after the revolution, Schielke views recent events in ways that are both historically deep and personal. Schielke challenges prevailing views of Muslim piety, showing that religious lives are part of a much more complex lived experience.

Matisse and Picasso Book by Jack Flam

Matisse and Picasso Book
  • Author : Jack Flam
  • Publisher : Basic Books
  • Release Date : 2008-08-04
  • Category: Art
  • Pages : 296
  • ISBN Code: 0786723831

Summary: Matisse and Picasso achieved extraordinary prominence during their lifetimes. They have become cultural icons, standing not only for different kinds of art but also for different ways of living. Matisse, known for his restraint and intense sense of privacy, for his decorum and discretion, created an art that transcended daily life and conveyed a sensuality that inhabited an abstract and ethereal realm of being. In contrast, Picasso became the exemplar of intense emotionality, of theatricality, of art as a kind of autobiographical confession that was often charged with violence and explosive eroticism. In Matisse and Picasso , Jack Flam explores the compelling, competitive, parallel lives of these two artists and their very different attitudes toward the idea of artistic greatness, toward the women they loved, and ultimately toward their confrontations with death.
