Surviving the White Gaze
A Memoir
Rebecca Carroll - 2021-02-02
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Surviving the White Gaze" is a poignant memoir by cultural critic Rebecca Carroll that explores her painful journey to find her racial identity in a predominantly white America. Growing up as the only black person in a small New Hampshire town, Carroll struggled to articulate her isolation, despite a loving and idyllic childhood with her artistic parents. Her search for identity is further complicated when she meets her white birth mother, who consistently undermines her blackness and self-esteem. The memoir tells an intimate story of resilience, documenting Carroll's difficult journey through depression, eating disorders, and excessive drinking, and ultimately her path towards healing through chosen family. An illuminating and timely examination of racism and racial identity in America.

Лолита book cover
Vladimir Nabokov - 1995-01-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1955)
Рейтинг Goodreads
"Лолита" - третий американский роман Владимира Набокова - увидела свет в 1955 году. Вызвав скандал по обе стороны океана, эта книга вознесла автора на вершину литературного Олимпа и стала одним из самых известных и, без сомнения, самых великих произведений XX века. Сегодня, когда полемические страсти вокруг "Лолиты" уже давно улеглись, можно уверенно сказать, что это книга о великой любви, преодолевшей болезнь, смерть и время, любви, разомкнутой в бесконечность, "любви с первого взгляда, с последнего взгляда, с извечного взгляда".

Рейтинг Goodreads
Suppose you were an up-to-date young wife who moved into an old and elegant New York apartment house with a rather strange past. Suppose that only after you became pregnant did you begin to suspect the building harbored a diabolically evil group of devil worshippers who had mastered the arts of black magic and witchcraft. Suppose that this satanic conspiracy set out to claim not only your husband but your baby. Well, that's what happened to Rosemary... Or did it...?

ROSEMARY'S BABY is a hilarious book. case in point: rosemary--knocked out & being raped by Satan--unconsciously comparing the devil's um member favorably to her husband's      источник

Рейтинг Goodreads
Однажды воскресным вечером помощник прокурора Альберт Казинс оставил дома жену и детей и, захватив бутылку джина, отправился к Фрэнсису Китингу — коллеге, которого почти не знал, на вечеринку, на которую его никто не звал. Альберт не собирался целовать Беверли, жену хозяина, — все случилось само собой. Но это событие в результате разрушило два брака и навсегда изменило жизни четырех взрослых и шестерых детей. В одном из лучших своих романов мастер глубокой психологической прозы Энн Пэтчетт рассказывает о том, как складывались их судьбы на протяжении последующих пятидесяти лет.

Garments Against Women book cover
Garments Against Women
Anne Boyer - 2015-03-16
Рейтинг Goodreads
Garments Against Women is a powerful exploration of the struggle to find forms for survival in a world that excludes and enslaves. Through Lyric prose, the author shares her confessions of living in low-rent apartments, parenting her daughter, and seeking answers to the question of how to survive survival. The author challenges literary conventions and emphasizes the need for literature that addresses the concerns of disenfranchised individuals, particularly women and girls. This is a deeply political and philosophical work that invents social movements and explores possibilities for a more just and equitable future.
