This unsentimental but moving memoir of bridges two distinct periods in the history of the AIDS epidemic: the terrifying early years in which a diagnosis was a death sentence and ignorance too often eclipsed compassion, and the introduction of antiviral therapies that transformed AIDS into a chronic, though potentially manageable, disease.

The author undertakes the task of examining a large body of literature produced in Hong Kong to show it as an integral part of the universal human heritage. This thematic study of contemporary Hong Kong anglophone literature identifies a series of themes and motifs that can be drawn upon both as figures for an authentically «Hong Kong» criticism and as lenses through which to read, contextualize, and interpret the texts that constitute this canon of fiction, autobiography, drama, and poetry. Focusing on three central texts - Patrick Acheson's intricately-wrought and provocative Flagrant Harbour, Lee Ding Fai's rags-to-riches story Running Dog, and Timothy Mo's The Monkey King - Hooper offers a theoretical structure for analyzing the postcolonial phenomena in the Hong Kong context. This book includes an exhaustive bibliography of Hong Kong literature.

Born in Dundee in 1938, Maureen Reynolds grew up in wartime Scotland, a young girl surrounded by adult concerns. There was the endless queuing for rations that never seemed to stretch quite far enough, the blackouts and the air raids. But, if times were hard, they were also simpler, and in Voices in the StreetMaureen remembers with great fondness her early years with her wise old grandad, the enjoyment of riding on tram cars, the weekly wash house gossip and the people and places of her childhood. When she left school at fifteen, Maureen immediately started her working life with a job at the local sweetie factory, coming of age in the era of Teddy Boys and rock 'n' roll and enjoying the dancing with her best friend Betty. Then, as Maureen grew up, she found her love, only to see him borrowed in the name of National Service. But, through good times and bad, she would never forget growing up in Dundee.

The true story of the fourth-grade teacher in Dayton, Ohio, who created one of the most influential bands of our times. Devoted fans have followed Guided by Voices for decades—and critics around the world have lauded the band’s brain trust, Robert Pollard, as a once-in-a-generation artist. Pollard has been compared by the New York Times to Mozart, Rossini, and Paul McCartney (in the same sentence) and everyone from P. J. Harvey, Radiohead, R.E.M., the Strokes, and U2 has sung his praises and cited his music as an influence. But it all started rather prosaically when Pollard, a fourth-grade teacher in his early thirties, began recording songs with drinking buddies in his basement. In this book, James Greer, an acclaimed music writer and former Spin editor—who also played in the band for two years—provides unparalleled insight and complete access to the workings of Pollard’s muse.

Helaine Newstead, Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, was one of the foremost medievalists of our times. She influenced and guided the careers of many medieval scholars and, since her death in 1981, has been sorely missed by her colleagues and students alike. It is the students of her last years who have come together to honor her memory in this volume. To accommodate the broad scope of Professor Newstead's interests, the rhetorical device of translatio was selected as the unifying topic of this collection. It includes studies in translation, influence, folk motif, and other questions as well as the trope itself. Among the contributors: Allen Mandelbaum, David Greetham, Frederick Goldin, JoAnne Kraus, Diane Marks, Barry Bissell, and Johanna C. Prins.
