It is certainly the text to which all scholars interested in postmodern romance refer (see Morgan 2004: 502–20), and has become the model for a number of interesting variants, including the widely acclaimed The Map of Love by Adhaf ...

Romance Writing

Exploring the nature of both the romance genre and the discourse of romantic love from the 17th century to the present day, this book shows how, in the history of literature, lovers have utilised its spark to change not only themselves but also their worlds, through acts of creativity and heroism.

A Century of Encounters

On more than one level, The Map of Love also presents the implausibility of stable identity markers that separate people from each other. It refuses to be categorized as purely romance, travel writing, or historical fiction; ...

A Century of Encounters

A Century of Encounters analyzes Arab, American, and European literary depictions of self and other as they interact with each other in Arab North Africa throughout the twentieth century and introduces the trope of the encounter as a lens through which to read contemporary world literature comparatively. A focus on the transnational encounter allows for the in-depth study of constructions of gender, race, and national identities both for the self and the other in order to answer the seemingly simple questions: What makes up different encounters in the twentieth century, and how can we facilitate a productive and positive encounter between these groups? This book illustrates connections between literary texts that have hitherto been overlooked and establishes an intertextual genealogy of transcultural encounters throughout the twentieth century that coalesce around the themes of desire, family, and travel. In its literary analysis, A Century of Encounters aims to facilitate a better understanding of other cultures in general and contribute to constructive cross-cultural interactions between the United States, Europe, and Arab North Africa in particular.

Love Maps

“The truest kind of story: about the inconvenience of love, and the choices people make when they’re most afraid” (Amanda Stern, author of Little Panic). Sarah Marker, an artist who ekes out a living teaching at a fancy Connecticut high school, hasn’t seen her husband in seven years. But now she’s received a letter from Philip, and he wants to visit. The two never formally cut ties; they simply drifted apart and into a state of ambivalence—and now, as much as Sarah would like to see him, she is terrified at what he will do when he discovers that she has a son. Sarah bundles up her child and once again takes flight, in this novel that spans back in forth in time and journeys into the 1980s art scene in New York City—and ultimately, she must confront the terrible events surrounding Philip’s departure, and reconcile her own fractured experience of family, including the successful sister who has long overshadowed her. “Powerfully written. . . . From its tense opening chapter to its memorable conclusion, this is a read-in-one-sitting trip.” —Publishers Weekly “Compelling . . . A poignant picture of familial and romantic love and their complexities.” —Library Journal “Who can plot the turns and reversals of the heart? Who can follow its illogical loyalties and mysterious obsessions? Who can reconcile its competing claims from lovers and family? Eliza Factor, that’s who, in this stunningly assured novel about a pair of sisters—one a successful artist, the other a famous singer—and the handsome architect who comes between them. The cover should come with a warning to put your life on hold for a few days, because once you pick it up, you won’t be able to do anything else until you finish.” —Bliss Broyard, author of One Drop: My Father’s Hidden Life—A Story of Race and Family Secrets

Quantum Love

Falling in love is a thrilling, transcendent experience . . . but what about staying in love? Once the intense excitement of a new relationship starts to fade, you may think your only options are to somehow recapture that early magic or settle for a less than fulfilling love life. Now love, sex, and relationship expert Laura Berman, Ph.D., taps the latest scientific and metaphysical research to offer an inspiring alternative: a higher level of love beckoning you to move forward, not backward. Using the essential truth we’ve learned from the study of quantum physics—the fact that at our molecular core, each of us is simply a vessel of energy—Dr. Berman explains how you can use what’s happening in your inner world to create a level of passion, connection, and bliss in your relationship that you’ve never imagined possible. Drawing on her clinical practice and case studies as well as her personal journey, she guides you to: • Plot your unique energetic frequency of love with her Quantum Lovemap • Work consciously with the energy of your body, heart, and mind • Make four key commitments designed to raise your energetic profile • Bring your frequency into harmony with your partner’s so that you can grow together • Learn how to have Quantum Sex (which is every bit as good as it sounds) We can’t go back to the honeymoon phase, but there is something so much better available. Quantum Love lets you reach new heights of intimacy as you gain a fuller sense of purpose in life and love.

Super Fake Love Song

Praise for Frankly in Love: A New York Times Bestseller and #1 Indie Bestseller An Amazon.com Best Book of the Year Five Starred Reviews "Extraordinary . . a beautifully layered novel about first love, tribalism and that brief, magical period when kids have one foot in high school, one foot out the door. . . Yoon explores themes of racism, forgiveness and acceptance without getting earnest or preachy or letting anyone off the hook. And there's a universality to the story that cuts across cultures." -New York Times From bestselling author David Yoon comes an inventive new romantic comedy about identity, perception, and how hard it can sometimes feel to simply be yourself. When Sunny Dae - self-proclaimed total nerd - meets Cirrus Soh, he can't believe how cool and confident she is. So when Cirrus mistakes Sunny's older brother Gray's bedroom - with its collection of electric guitars and rock posters - for Sunny's own, he sort of, kind of, accidentally winds up telling her he's the front man of a rock band. Before he knows it, Sunny is knee-deep in the lie: He ropes his best friends into his scheme, begging them to form a fake band with him, and starts wearing Gray's rock and roll castoffs. But no way can he trick this amazing girl into thinking he's cool, right? Just when Sunny is about to come clean, Cirrus asks to see them play sometime. Gulp. Now, there's only one thing to do: Fake it till you make it. Sunny goes all-in on the lie, and pretty soon, the strangest things start happening. People are noticing him in the hallways, and he's going to football games and parties for the first time. He's feeling more confident, in every aspect of his life, and especially with Cirrus, who's started to become not just his dream girl but also the real deal. Sunny is falling in love. He's having fun. He's even becoming a rocker, for real. But it's only a matter of time before Sunny's house of cards starts tumbling down. As his lies begin to catch up with him, Sunny Dae is forced to wonder whether it was all worth it - and if it's possible to ever truly change. Frankly in Love: "With echoes of John Green and To All the Boys I've Loved Before, it's poised to be the biggest YA debut of the year." -Entertainment Weekly "Yoon's fresh and nuanced approach to Frank's struggle to navigate cultural tensions amplifies both the vulnerabilities and the strengths that can come with being a child of immigrants. . . Yoon underscores the value of honoring both who you are and where you come from." -TIME Magazine "Yoon's stellar debut expertly and authentically tackles racism, privilege, and characters who are trying to navigate their Korean-American identity." -BuzzFeed

Marriage  Writing  and Romanticism

Marriage, Writing, and Romanticism studies marriage in two sets of literary texts from the Regency decade: the novels of Jane Austen—who avoided marriage in her own life but seems to have written about nothing else—and a set of non-canonical and generally unfamiliar poems by William Wordsworth, who seems never to turn to the subject of his own marriage. With other Romantic writers who also figure in this study, Austen and Wordsworth confronted the impossibility of writing about anything other than marriage and the imperative either to celebrate or condemn it. Thanks to the latest scholarly editions of Wordsworth, Walker introduces previously undiscussed material. Walker reads conjugality as the compulsory ground of modern identity, an Enlightenment legacy we still grapple with today, and offers new perspectives on literature through the writing of Austen and Wordsworth and theories of marriage in Godwin, Wollstonecraft, Hegel, Kierkegaard, and, in our time, Adam Phillips and Stanley Cavell.
