Book Summary:

Rheinhardt, a disk jockey and failed musician, rolls into New Orleans looking for work and another chance in life. What he finds is a woman physically and psychically damaged by the men in her past and a job that entangles him in a right-wing political movement. Peopled with civil rights activists, fanatical Christians, corrupt politicians, and demented Hollywood stars, A Hall of Mirrors vividly depicts the dark side of America that erupted in the sixties. To quote Wallace Stegner, "Stone writes like a bird, like an angel, like a circus barker, like a con man, like someone so high on pot that he is scraping his shoes on the stars."

Book Summary:

The year is 1969 and ten guests are about to enjoy a country house weekend at Tavistock Hall. But one amongst them is harbouring thoughts of murder. . . The guests also include the young detectives Arthur Bryant and John May – undercover, in disguise and tasked with protecting Monty Hatton-Jones, a whistle-blower turning Queen’s evidence in a massive bribery trial. Luckily, they’ve got a decent chap on the inside who can help them – the one-armed Brigadier, Nigel ‘Fruity’ Metcalf. The house’s owner – a penniless, dope-smoking aristocrat – is intent on selling the estate (complete with its own hippy encampment) to a secretive millionaire but the weekend has only just started when the millionaire goes missing and murder is on the cards. But army manoeuvres have closed the only access road and without a forensic examiner, Bryant and May can’t solve the case. It’s when a falling gargoyle fells another guest that the two incognito detectives decide to place their future reputations on the line. And in the process discover that in Swinging Britain nothing is quite what it seems... So gentle reader, you are cordially invited to a weekend in the country. Expect murder, madness and mayhem in the mansion!

Book Summary:

Following his bestselling biography of the Pound Sterling, David Sinclair's next book is a fascinating insight into the single event which shaped the face of the modern world. If the Great War of 1914-1918 was a tragedy, then the Treaty of Versailles was a complete travesty. Rather than sealing a guarantee for peace, stability and prosperity for a new and better world, the treaty ensured that the remainder of the twentieth century would see horror, brutality and suffering unparalleled in human history. The treaty was engineered and manipulated by self-interested politicians with individual motivations and contrasting agendas. Hall of Mirrors reflects on how the representatives of America, Britain and France - Woodrow Wilson, David Lloyd George and Georges Clemenceau - deliberately ignored the possibility of finding a progressive international solution. Instead, driven by ego and personal vendetta, these statesmen stimulated a European future of faction, dispute and conflict. Hall of Mirrors is a fascinating story of destruction, delusion and greed, illuminating the personalities and politics involved in making the treaty. It is also a valuable and topical discussion on the political structures which enable individual character and will to dictate the course of history and culture.

Book Summary:

Since being coined by Julia Kristeva, the term 'intertextuality' has been defined and deployed in a variety of ways. Conceived in the revolutionary throes of 1960s Paris as a concept intrinsically linked with the antihumanist erasure of the author-figure, 'intertextuality' originally referred to a condition of all writing, a discursive field in which all texts are encompassed. Since then, however, the term has undergone a series of transformations that have ultimately facilitated its use in terms of a textual practice, employed by the very authors that were denied by the term's originators. If the two conceptions of intertextuality appear incommensurable, however, this appearance is belied by texts in which notions of intertextuality as both condition and practice are indelibly intertwined: in other words, by texts in which the conception of the general intertext is inscribed, articulated and performed by their own insistent and reflexive intertextual praxes. This thesis explores the writing of Paul Muldoon and W.G. Sebald in terms of this collision of seemingly incommensurable conceptions of intertextuality. It argues that each author's writing can be understood as a complex and self-reflexive inscription and negotiation of the tensions and paradoxes that emerge from the conflicting formations of intertextuality with which their texts are self-consciously engaged.
