Book Summary:

This book is a multi-faceted, interdisciplinary examination of the music and figure of Lady Gaga, combining approaches from scholars in cultural studies, art, fashion, and music. It represents one of the first scholarly volumes devoted to Lady Gaga, who has become, over a few short years, central to both popular (and, indeed, populist) as well as more scholarly thought in these areas and who, the contributors argue, is helping to shape—directly and indirectly—thought and culture both in the fields of the "scholarly" and the "everyday." Lady Gaga's output is firmly embedded in a self-consciously intellectual pop culture tradition, and her music videos are intertextually linked to icons of pop culture intelligentsia like Alfred Hitchcock and open to multiple interpretations. In examining her music and figure, this volume contributes both to debates on the status of intertextuality, held in tension with originality, and to debates on the figuring of the sexualized female body, and representations of disability. There is interest in these issues from a wide range of disciplines: popular musicology, film studies, queer studies, women’s studies, gender studies, disability studies, popular culture studies, and the burgeoning sub-discipline of aesthetics and philosophy of fashion.

Book Summary:

Lady Gaga represents both the height of celebrity and a disruption of the norms surrounding the social position. This book charts the way the pop star manages the celebrity persona in her relationships with her fans, the development of her gender identity, her parodying of other celebrities, and her navigation of the legal and economic system that make up the music industry. Much of Gaga’s ability to maintain ownership of her identity comes from her early decisions to characterize herself as a performance artist. For Gaga, this means living the persona 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Gaga mimicks celebrity life in a self-conscious way that makes the mimicry apparent. Her performance of celebrity is an on-going project—despite what she may claim, she was not born this way. The excess of her celebrity is magnified by her title: Mother Monster. Historically, media narratives of celebrities, monsters, and mothers have centered on uncontrolled excesses that must be contained. Gaga adopts these personas, but refuses to submit to the containment that comes with each. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Today one of the most successful music stars in the world, Lady Gaga fast became a household name after the release of her first album, The Fame, in 2008.

A throwback to the glam rock entertainers David Bowie and Queen, Gaga is unlike any other musician performing today, and such singularity has won her numerous accolades, including five Grammy Awards and thirteen MTV Video Music Awards, as well as being listed by Time magazine as one of the world's most influential people. Lady Gaga: The Unauthorized Biography charts this remarkable young woman's rise to the very summit of musical superstardom, covering her early years at a Roman Catholic school in Manhattan, her first forays into music writing and performing, her early struggles to find a break in an industry that didn't initially appreciate her abilities, her eventual breakthrough, her philanthropic work and, of course, her look.

Book Summary:

"Yes," as Cyril might say, "being old's all right, once you get past the age of trying to be young." First published in 1966, Diary of an old man is a real tour de force. It covers one winter month in the life of an old man living in a tiny pension. The prosaic events which are recounted - keeping warm, finding accommodation, cooking, reading papers in the local library - conceal an extraordinary feat of imagination on the part of the author: Mr. Bermant's concept of Cyril, his narrator, is so complete that this book is not only intensely moving, but is also a real contribution to an understanding of the human condition. It has become costumary for a sociologist to speak of "the problem of old age"; but until the "problem" is accepted subjectively, by individuals, it is an empty phrase. In this very unusual, often very funny book, Mr. Bermant strips the reader of all illusions, and shows just what it is to be old, and poor, and friendless, and yet not to lose a sense of humour or the will to live.
