Описание: A popular sub-genre of fantasy and science fiction, steampunk re-imagines the Victorian age in the future, and re-works its technology, fashion, and values with a dose of anti-modernism. While often considered solely through the lens of literature, steampunk is, in fact, a complex phenomenon that also affects, transforms, and unites a wide range of disciplines, such as art, music, film, television, fashion, new media, and material culture. In Steaming into a Victorian Future: A Steampunk Anthology, Julie Anne Taddeo and Cynthia J. Miller have assembled a collection of essays that consider the social and cultural aspects of this multi-faceted genre. The essays included in this volume examine various manifestations of steampunk both separately and in relation to each other in order to better understand the steampunk sub-culture and its effect on and interrelationship with popular culture and the wider society. This volume expands and extends existing scholarship on steampunk in order to explore many previously unconsidered questions about cultural creativity, social networking, fandom, appropriation, and the creation of meaning. With a foreword by pop-culture scholar Ken Dvorak, an afterword by steampunk expert Jeff VanderMeer, and several illustrations by artist Jody Steel, Steaming into a Victorian Future offers a wide ranging look at the impact of steampunk, as well as the individuals who create, interpret, and consume it.
Описание: This collection addresses the social and political contexts that have shaped the British TV costume drama as well as the changing historical contexts in which such programs are viewed again and again (in syndication, on DVD, youtube, etc.) and are reinterpreted by a thriving twenty-first-century global fan culture.

Описание: "I can't imagine a scenario where this isn't one of the more important--and breathlessly debated--books of the year." --Dave EggersFrom a thrilling new talent, Three Women is an astonishing work of narrative journalism--reported over eight years--about the sex lives and desires of three ordinary American women.Lina, a homemaker in suburban Indiana, is a decade into a passionless marriage when she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all-consuming and transforms her life. Sloane, a glamorous entrepreneur in the northeast, is married to a man who likes to watch her have sex with other men and women. Maggie, a high school student in North Dakota, begins a relationship with her English teacher that will have extraordinary consequences for them both--as well as the community in which they live. For nearly a decade, Lisa Taddeo, an award-winning journalist and longtime contributor to New York magazine and Esquire, embedded herself with three everyday women to write this deeply immersive account of their erotic lives and longings. The result--shocking, powerful, and timely--reads like George Packer's The Unwinding, but for the state of female desire. Three Women is a major work from an exhilarating new voice.
