First serialized in The New York Times Magazine "Funny Pages" The celebrated cartoonist and "New Yorker" illustrator Seth weaves the fictional tale of George Sprott, the host of a long-running television program. The events forming the patchwork of George's life are pieced together from the tenuous memories of several informants, who often have contradictory impressions. His estranged daughter describes the man as an unforgivable lout, whereas his niece remembers him fondly. His former assistant recalls a trip to the Arctic during which George abandoned him for two months, while George himself remembers that trip as the time he began writing letters to a former love, from whom he never received replies.Invoking a sense of both memory and its loss, "George Sprott" is heavy with the charming, melancholic nostalgia that distinguishes Seth's work. Characters lamenting societal progression in general share the pages with images of antiquated objects--proof of events and individuals rarely documented and barely remembered. Likewise, George's own opinions are embedded with regret and a sense of the injustice of aging in this bleak reminder of the inevitable slipping away of lives, along with the fading culture of their days.
Описание: n handy alphabetical order, notes are presented on over 180 selected people and places of interest and importance in the long and fascinating story of the Church in all its forms in Scotland. In addition, over 460 cross-references are provided to assist in tracing connected names and sites. This is neither a biographical dictionary nor a religious gazetteer. The author has made his own wide choice of subjects, on which he then gives his impressions and comments, the result of careful research on the people and of personal visits to most of the places mentioned. The choice concentrates not on the best-known figures or most-visited places but rather on those which, though significant, tend to be passed over in popular histories and guidebooks, covering not only the Catholic and Protestant streams of the Church but also some strange and lesser-known sects. The book is intended for readers wanting to learn about the ecclesiastical institutions in their locality, for visitors eager to uncover some of the romance of Scottish church history, and not least for teachers and students whose projects in environmental studies will be incomplete unless they include the church buildings and religious monuments of the country. All who use these notes should find in them a little about the highways and quite a lot about the byways of Scottish life as it related to the things of the spirit. Mr Towill's easy-to-use compilation is the first of its kind on this subject, with an approach wide enough to be of interes't and value to a great variety of readers, regard less of denomination or religious faith. A chronological index of people and a geographical index of places are provided, plus a section on bibliography and sources, and the whole work is further enhanced by Colin Gibson's fine drawings. EDWIN SPROTT TOWILL, until his recent retirement Principal Lecturer in Religious Education in Dundee College of Education, is a former parish minister. He is a graduate in Arts, Divinity and Education of Edinburgh University and has written on the history of Edinburgh schools, the early British Church and various educational and religious topics.
