Britain's most widely read author of the late twentieth century, Catherine Cookson published more than 100 books, including The Fifteen Streets, The Black Velvet Gown, and Katie Mulhollond. Set in England's industrial northeast, her novels depict the social, economic, and emotional hardships of that area. In the first essay collection devoted to Cookson, the contributors examine what Cookson's memoirs and historical fiction mean to readers, including how her fans contribute to her position in the cultural imaginary; constructions of gender, class, and English and Irish identity in her work; the importance of place in her novels; Cookson's place in the heritage industry; and television adaptations of Cookson's works. Cookson's work tackled topics that were still taboo in the early post-World War II era, such as domestic abuse, rape, and incest. This collection places Cookson in historical context and shows how skillful she was at pushing generic boundaries.

Rewriting 'Les Mystères de Paris'

Key works of popular fiction are often rewritten to capitalize on their success. But what are the implications of this rewriting process? Such is the question addressed by this detailed study of several rewritings of Eugène Sue’s Mystères de Paris (1842-43), produced in the latter half of the nineteenth century, in response to the phenomenal success of Sue’s archetypal urban mystery. Pursuing a compelling analogy between city and text, and exploring the resonance of the palimpsest trope to both, Amy Wigelsworth argues that the mystères urbains are exemplary rewritings, which shed new light on contemporary reading and writing practices, and emerge as early avatars of a genre still widely consumed and enjoyed in the 21st century.

Al santuario donde vive llegan diversos tipos de personalidades para hablar con Su Santidad —desde celebridades de Hollywood hasta escritores, filántropos, dirigentes, políticos y filósofos—, todos deseosos de que el Lama resuelva sus problemas de infelicidad y soledad, les hable del karma y de la culpa, de la compasión y la generosidad, de la envidia y el resentimiento, la meditación, el misticismo y la agitación. Mientras él ilumina al visitante para que encuentre la paz, el irreverente gato nos dice cómo aplicar estas enseñanzas a la vida cotidiana y, a través de anécdotas con las que el lector se sentirá identificado, invita a la reflexión para descubrir la felicidad y significado en medio de un mundo materialista y pletórico de actividad; comparte historias y parábolas escuchadas al Dalai Lama, y la filosofía que nos da los instrumentos para unirnos al mensaje de paz que nos brinda. Después de leer este relato, con pequeñas lecciones de sabiduría budista, verás tu mapa de vida desde otro enfoque.
