This is the Memoir of Manny Scott's life.
Since the nineteenth century, children's literature has been adapted for both the stage and the screen. As the twentieth century progressed, children's books provided the material for an increasing range of new media, from radio to computer games, from television to cinema blockbuster. Although such adaptations are now recognised as a significant part of the culture of childhood and popular culture in general, little has been written about the range of products and experiences that they generate. This book brings together writers whose work offers contrasting perspectives on the process of adaptation and the varying transformations - social, historical and ideological - that take place when a text moves from the page to another medium. Linking all these contributions is an interest in the changing definition of children's literature and its target audience within an increasingly media-rich society.
American Book Review is not just a book review—it is also the heart and soul of writerly writing and small press publishing. In 2006, the publication was relocated to Victoria, Texas, where cultural critic and philosopher Jeffrey R. Di Leo became editor and publisher. Turning the Page collects Di Leo’s contributions to American Book Review from his more recent “Page 2” entries on “social reading” and book bannings in Arizona to his early engagements with the work of Raymond Federman and Harold Jaffe. The common themes are book and publishing culture, and how they intersect with current problems in the humanities, including the rise of neoliberalism. “There is no dimension of contemporary book culture that Jeffrey Di Leo doesn’t examine beautifully in Turning the Page. These essays are essential reading for everyone who cares about the state of literature today.”—Charles Johnson, author, Middle Passage “For the past decade, Jeffrey Di Leo, the editor of American Book Review, has been a witty, genial, super-well-informed, and incisive guide to what’s been happening on the literary scene as well as the public world beyond it.”—Marjorie Perloff, Sadie Dernham Patek Professor of Humanities Emerita, Stanford University “Literary culture is going through convulsions not seen since the emergence of the printing press, which is exactly why Jeffrey Di Leo’s Turning the Page is such necessary reading.”—Steve Tomasula, author, TOC: A New-Media Novel
Thirty-something Regina Shelton feels inadequate. Although she is successful in her work as a marketing executive, her personal life is empty. But when Regina meets handsome psychologist Paris Eli on an airplane, she thinks the missing piece in her life has finally been found. As Regina and Paris begin a passionate relationship, she is overwhelmed by his charms and pushes her misgivings aside as she reveals intimate details about her dysfunctional family; eventually she falls in love. Sure that Paris feels the same about her, Regina completely gives herself to him for two years-until he ends the relationship without warning. Suddenly, Regina is propelled into the darkness of pain and rejection where memories of her tumultuous childhood suddenly resurface. As she struggles to find the light of happiness once again, Regina discovers she cannot move into her future without releasing herself from her past. "Turning the Page" details one woman's emotional journey as she learns to overcome adversity, uncovers a long-held secret, and finally finds the self-acceptance she so desperately needs.
This is an exciting period for the book, a time of innovation, experimentation, and change. It is also a time of considerable fear within the book industry as it adjusts to changes in how books are created and consumed. The movement to digital has been taking place for some time, but with consumer books experiencing the transition, the effects of digitization can be clearly seen to everybody. In Turning the Page Angus Phillips analyses the fundamental drivers of the book publishing industry - authorship, readership, and copyright - and examines the effects of digital and other developments on the book itself. Drawing on theory and research across a range of subjects, from business and sociology to neuroscience and psychology, and from interviews with industry professionals, Phillips investigates how the fundamentals of the book industry are changing in a world of ebooks, self-publishing, and emerging business models. Useful comparisons are also made with other media industries which have undergone rapid change, such as music and newspapers. This book is an ideal companion for anyone wishing to understand the transition of the book, writing and publishing in recent years and will be particularly relevant to students studying publishing, media and communications.
Celia Thomas should be living a charmed life; as the niece of Hollywood’s current it guy, whose whole family is on the payroll, she doesn’t have to worry about money or future job prospects. Except maybe she doesn’t want to go into the family business. Although with her marks being what they are, there’s a chance she won’t even finish her year at The Rosewood Academy for Academic Excellence, let alone find her perfect career. After years of just skating by, she’s now flunking everything and the dean isn’t going to stand for it for much longer. At least her romantic prospects are looking up as things start to heat up in the kitchen with Shane, her student supervisor. Then, Evan Jenkins, or Jenks—another long-time crush—starts showing interest. Two guys; what a problem to have! But Celia knows she needs to focus on her marks because getting the boot from Rosewood will kill all her chances at romance and finding a happily ever after. Knowing she can’t do it on her own, Celia hires a tutor, but in many ways that just complicates things even more. It seems the only things she can count on are her friends: her Rosewood girls and the new tutor who seems so worldly and knows a lot more than just algebra and history. But can the girl who seems to have everything really have it all? Turning the Page is the ninth installment of The Rosewoods, an exciting Young Adult series for readers who love fun, flirty love stories.
