If you've ever wondered what happened to the young fellow from Malta who bought his grandfather an altar... If you're concerned about the camper called Jack who found a huge snake in his pack... And if you suspect that an eccentric landowner called Grey spent Christmas a very strange way but aren't sure precisely what that entailed... Then a dip into Michael Palin's Sackful of Limericks will provide all the answers – and a lot of fun besides.

The idea of "region" in America has often served to isolate places from each other, observes Douglas Reichert Powell. Whether in the nostalgic celebration of folk cultures or the urbane distaste for "hicks," certain regions of the country are identified as static, insular, and culturally disconnected from everywhere else. In Critical Regionalism, Reichert Powell explores this trend and offers alternatives to it. Reichert Powell proposes using more nuanced strategies that identify distinctive aspects of particular geographically marginal communities without turning them into peculiar "hick towns." He enacts a new methodology of critical regionalism in order to link local concerns and debates to larger patterns of history, politics, and culture. To illustrate his method, in each chapter of the book Reichert Powell juxtaposes widely known texts from American literature and film with texts from and about his own Appalachian hometown of Johnson City, Tennessee. He carries the idea further in a call for a critical regionalist pedagogy that uses the classroom as a place for academic writers to build new connections with their surroundings, and to teach others to do so as well.

In Extremis ist ein existenzieller Roman und gleichzeitig einer der lustigsten, der über Tod und Familie geschrieben wurde. Thomas weiß, dass es etwas gibt, was er seiner Mutter noch sagen muss, bevor sie stirbt. Aber wird er das rechtzeitig schaffen? Und wird er den Mut haben zu sagen, was er vorher nicht sagen konnte? Sein Telefon brummt, in seinem Kopf dreht sich alles und er kann sich nicht darauf konzentrieren, was gerade passiert und worauf es ankommt. Soll er versuchen, den Familienkonflikt zu lösen, in dem sich sein Freund gerade befindet? Sollte er die Trennung von seiner Frau nochmal überdenken? Warum ist er so ungeheuer verwirrt, ja geradezu paralysiert? In diesem überaus anregenden Roman erkundet Tim Parks, wie tief unsere Identität in unserer familiären Vergangenheit wurzelt. Können wir das jemals wirklich ändern?
