More > a paint brush of four individuals with vastly different backgrounds and perspectives. This sad and happy story is played out across the world: from the tranquil remnants of a once bustling town on the coast of Oregon, to the peaceful beauty and charm of Victoria, in the steaming heat and poverty of India, in the metaphysical world of the wonders and magic and tragedy of Tibet, in the towering Himalayas, and finally in a transplanted French chateau near Portland.< Less

The Young Forester: Classic American Western Novel By Zane Grey

Sample character names include Hal, Ken, Dick, Ward, Smith, Jim, and an unscrupulous for-hire Latino generally referred to as "the Greaser." Lovely, just lovely. Societally-acceptable... More > racism aside, it's a quick and engaging, if moderately insulting, read (for, among other things, the suspension of disbelief required at frequent intervals, mostly corresponding to the practically metaphysical knowledge of forestry and government regulations that escapes our teen-aged hero's lips during long rides in the saddle in-between plot twists). And yet, it's an entertaining romp in the finest pulp tradition. Plus, I was referred to this fictionalized account of a zealous "Pinchot progressive" in the highly recommended telling of the 1910 Bitterroot Mountains fire "The Big Burn" by Timothy Egan. Yes, go read that fine book first, and then come back to consume this one.< Less
Postmodern Metaphysical Anti-Detective Fictions: Analyzed with reference to Paul Auster’s City of Glass, Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time and Borges’ “Death and the Compass” By Nasim M. Sarkar

This book aims at analyzing the 'metaphysical detective story', a genre that twists and turns the well-wrought conventions of the typical Holmesian detective stories and slyly leaves philosophical... More > questionings of 'reality', 'truth', 'self' and 'identity' in the fabric of the text. The writer observes curious results when postmodernism with its characteristic indeterminacy and chaos is applied on to a genre that hinges on certainty and order. In the three selected texts the detectives Daniel Quinn, Christopher Boone and Erik Lonnrot are caught in a perilous world and the case as well as the story is left unfinished. The role of the detective is parodied. This book reaveals that these queer consequences raise deeper philosophical questions and raises, at the same time, the detective genre as a whole, from its 'popular' image to an 'avant garde' form of art.< Less
