These works embody singular styles and sounds, yet all represent the robust spirit of unique people finding their way in the world. They are all sure to entertain, including the Broadway hit A Year with Frog and Toad. The quirky Tale of a West Texas Marsupial Girl, by Lisa D’Amour, with music by Sxip Shirey, is set in a town unprepared to accept a girl born with a pouch. But eventually, with the help of her friend Sue, everyone comes to understand just how wonderful Marsupial Girl is. Madeline and the Gypsies—adapted by Barry Kornhauser from the popular book by Ludwig Bemelmans, with music by Michael Koerner—gives little Madeline and her friend Pepito a taste of circus life after they get lost at a carnival and Gypsies carry them away. In Buccaneers! (written by Liz Duffy Adams, with music by Ellen Maddow) a girl leads the young pirates who capture her toward a better life through her wits and tenacity. A Year with Frog and Toad chronicles the unlikely friendship of silly Toad and responsible Frog that endures all seasons. Based on the classic books by Arnold Lobel, adapted by Willie Reale, with music by Robert Reale, it made its mark on Broadway and was nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Each of these musicals guarantees a distinctive, delightful theatrical experience. Now teachers and children far and wide can read them in one volume and produce them in their own schools, theatres, and communities.

Download or read book Panic, Transnational Cultural Studies, and the Affective Contours of Power written by Micol Seigel and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2018-07-04 with total page 310 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume explores the panic that is a central affective register of our current international order. Fears of Somali pirates, "Gypsy" kidnappers, African warlords, Ebola, "Mexican meth," pimps, coyotes, gangs, climate refugees and more, structure the dark side of a metropolitan unconscious. These are terrors over things that (might) cross borders, threatening the sanctity of territoriality and capital. Inspired by scholarship challenging panics around human and sex trafficking, the contributors to this volume develop the umbrella category of the global moral panic. Embracing the challenge of grasping a phenomenon not previously regarded as cohering, they consider panics provoked by travel, passage, transgression; panics over bodies that move. Like panics over trafficking, the episodes narrated here ride and feed a field of common sense regarding crime, rights, and state power. Their logics of victims and villains nourish notions of the centrality of punishment, drawing from and feeding taxonomies of gender, race, and nation, solidifying the order craved by capital. They spotlight the coloniality of power, the ongoing salience of empire, the savior logics of rescue, and the profound sexism organizing hierarchies of bodies and places. Panic, this volume diagnoses, is a crucial, undertheorized facet of contemporary local-global relations.

Download or read book The Contemporary American Short-Story Cycle written by James Nagel and published by LSU Press. This book was released on 2004-04-01 with total page 316 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: James Nagel offers the first systematic history and definition of the short-story cycle as exemplified in contemporary American fiction, bringing attention to the format's wide appeal among various ethnic groups. He examines in detail eight recent manifestations of the genre, all praised by critics while uniformly misidentified as novels. Nagel proposes that the short-story cycle, with its concentric as opposed to linear plot development possibilities, lends itself particularly well to exploring themes of ethnic assimilation, which mirror some of the major issues facing American society today.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A National Book Award Finalist, Sarah Shun-lien Bynum's enchanting and inventive first novel is a groundbreaking, contemporary classic When a girl falls into a mysterious, impenetrable sleep, the borders between her provincial French village and the peculiar, beguiling realm of her dreams begin to disappear: A fat woman sprouts delicate wings and takes flight; a failed photographer stumbles into the role of pornographer; a beautiful young wife grows to resemble her husband's viol. Madeleine, the dreamer, travels in their midst, trying to make sense of her own metamorphosis. She leaves home, joins a gypsy circus, and falls into an unexpected triangle of desire and love. Embracing the earthy and the ethereal, the comical and the poignant, Madeleine Is Sleeping is part fairy tale, part coming-of-age story, and above all, an adventure in the discovery of art, sexuality, community, and the self.

This book was released on 2001 with total page 429 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In den letzten Jahrzehnten haben die Themen Migration, Minderheiten und kulturelle Vielfalt an gesellschaftlicher Bedeutung gewonnen, wie auch der Jugendliteratur zu entnehmen ist. Wie werden Minderheiten in neueren Jugendbüchern dargestellt? Wie werden Mentalitätsunterschiede oder kulturelle Verschiedenheit umschrieben und bewertet? Basiert Anerkennungsbereitschaft für die 'Anderen' nach wie vor auf der (problematischen) Voraussetzung der Assimilationsbereitschaft? Mit diesen Fragen setzte sich ein internationaler Kongress zum Thema «Jugendliteratur in Europa» Ende August 2000 an der Vrije Universiteit Brussel auseinander, dessen Beiträge in diesem Band vereinigt sind. In recent decades migration, minorities and multiculturalism have become frequent themes in European youth literature. How are minorities depicted in recently published books? How are different mentalities and cultural diversity dealt with? Do tolerant attitudes towards minorities depend only on their willingness and ability to be integrated? These questions were the focal themes of an international congress on Youth Literature in Europe, organized by the Free University of Brussels (VUB) from 25 to 26 August 2000. The conference proceedings are assembled in this volume.
