16 Hugh Kenner The Elsewhere Community
Allen & Unwin 241255 Australia 1998 1864488727 / 9781864488722 Softcover Very Good Condition 'This grand tour of books, writers and places both physical and of the mind - conducted by one of the grand critics and teachers of our time - is above all a highly civilised confirmation that, when all is said and done, great literature is the source of profound insights into the unchanging nature of human experience.' Andrew Riemer'.Kenner's book is both a time capsule and eloquent reminiscence. Anyone interested in mid-twentieth century literature and criticism should read it.' Mark Davis'Sunlight unwinds from the pages in this trip of a lifetime. It's On the Road with the best minds of all generations, from Galileo to Bugs Bunny, from cyber seniors to the girl next door. A joyride.' Richard NevilleExile, identity and fantasy were the themes of the Massey Lectures delivered by internationally acclaimed man of letters Hugh Kenner. The Elsewhere Community provocatively examines the idea that Western culture has a constant need for stimulation encountered elsewhere. Kenner traces this trend from the eighteenth century's Grand Tour, wherein young Englishmen travelled Europe before beginning their careers, to the self-imposed exile of modernist writers, to the disembodied global journeys the Internet offers up to us today.Hugh Kenner is the Fuller E. Callaway Professor of English at the University of Georgia. He has published over thirty books, including studies of Ezra pound, Samuel Beckett, James Joyce and Bugs Bunny!Following the success of John Ralston Saul's Massey Lectures The Unconscious Civilization ABC Radio National will broadcast The Elsewhere Community over Christmas 1998. 113 pages.

I remember saying something like, 'I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive ...'' Hunter S. Thompson is roaring down the desert highway to Las Vegas with his attorney, the Samoan, to find the dark side of the American Dream. Armed with a drug arsenal of stupendous proportions, the duo engage in a surreal succession of chemically enhanced confrontations with casino operators, police officers and assorted Middle Americans. This stylish reissue of Hunter S. Thompson's iconic masterpiece, a controversial bestseller when it appeared in 1971, features the brilliant Ralph Steadman illustrations of the original. It brings to a new generation the hallucinatory humour and nightmare terror of Hunter S. Thompson's musings on the collapse of the American Dream. 190 pages. Tanning to pages.

To escape their dramas, he retreats into a fantasy world of his own making, where ships sail to exotic lands. But when one day he trips over a salt-eaten coffin, washed up on the shore, and finds inside the body of a dead sailor, the voice that whispers in Malte's ear starts to take on a life of its own. It tells the secret story of the amber collector who made his fortune combing the beach for sea gold. 245 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
