Two Novels In Minor Keys
Gerald Kaminski
0738835226
December 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Two Novels in Minor Keys Goodbye Richard As seen from the point of view of a higher than usual authority, Richard's life is a twice told tale signifying something. Unlike XY who weaves what appear to be ideas with such stylistic interest that it is easy to think they have significance, Kaminski strips away the burden of style. If ever less was really more, it is here in these few pages. Unlike XX who ever provides not one but endless thousands of those trenchant, telling details, Kaminski is as sparing of your time as is a Republican tax plan of a millionaire's money. This is a novel for the busy e-mail generation. Fax it on. People Wanting Children A comic novel, which like most truly comic effects, has a more serious subtext that provides the bounce for pinball events. P.W.C. actually has two such levels: Sex is...


Literacy in America: An Encyclopedia of History, Theory, and Practice

Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
Representing a wide range of perspectives on the topic, both historical and current, this two-volume set offers a comprehensive overview of the study and practice of literacy in the United States. The 400 succinct entries are written by specialists in the field but are still accessible to a nonacademic audience. Ranging widely from adolescent literature to whole language and language assessment, the topics are arranged alphabetically rather than by category, but an index, ample cross references, and a detailed table of contents help readers find any piece of information needed. Editor Guzzetti (language & literacy, Arizona State Univ., Tempe) has included photos or other illustrations with some of the entries. Despite its heft and the seriousness of the topic, this work is extremely user-friendly. It...
