"Willy Loman, Nosferatu (or Biffo, the Vampyre Slayer)" is a parody of two of the most beloved American stage classics, Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" and Tennessee Williams' "The Glass Menagerie." It turns out that the "Loman Line" is not Miller's lacerating examination of the selling of the American dream and his sympathy for the soul of the everyman, but a line of the Undead (Nosferatu) that have left a ruinous legacy of lunacy and calamity behind them. Willy Loman finds himself brought back to life and seeks revenge, while his two sons somehow become involved with the Wingfield family from "A Glass Menagerie," who have all found themselves reunited in Queens fifteen years after Willy's "first death." Wally of WPDP3 says, "Read the first two and cry; read the third and wonder why."

Billy Budd Wtf

It's also a musical! This is the second parody of great literature Morneau has authored. His first, "Willy Loman, Nosferatu," speaks for itself and yet doesn't speak at all, as it is not yet a book on tape.

"Billy Budd, WTF?" is a parody of Herman Melville's classic "Billy Budd," specifically the play adaptation by Louis O. Coxe and Robert Chapman, which strips Melville's story to the bone in search of the mighty themes of Law, Order, Justice, Authority, Conscience, Good and Evil. Morneau dispenses with these themes and pursues more useful themes such as: What if you were fighting against the French and instead of them shooting cannonballs from their guns they shot fine French cuisine? What would you fire back? What if your crew mates were Frankenstein, the Wolfman, Dracula, Zorro, James Joyce and a guy named Ranch Dressing? Would you fit in? What if the force of evil on this war time cruise was a man who made lesser men laugh themselves to death? Can anything be that funny? What if you were captain of this ship but were more interested in puppet making and pantaloons? Do these obsessions give him moral authority? What if the bilge rats on your ship sang at certain intervals and functioned as a Greek chorus? Would you sing along? Somehow all of this comes together to entertain, to indict war and bad chowder, and bring about some of Melville's themes in ways that perplex this writer. It's also a musical! This is the second parody of great literature Morneau has authored. His first, "Willy Loman, Nosferatu," speaks for itself and yet doesn't speak at all, as it is not yet a book on tape.

"The Tangles" is a novella geared to young and adult readers. It is about three eighth graders and the caretaker of Egan's pond in Maine who discover a submerged UFO in this pond and the secrets occurring within the mysterious craft. These secrets affect the water and flora surrounding the pond in unusual ways and raise the curiosity of strangers and authorities who want to investigate these changes. To the children and the caretaker, this threatens the stability of the pond and its occupants, as well as the secret. "The Tangles" has no monsters, no aliens, no dark forces, and no violence driving its narrative. But it does have a profound lesson about childhood, hope, curiosity, life, and the how we are connected to our astonishing universe.

"Pineapple Hands" is the long-awaited volume of poetry and prose by Norwood appliance repairman Warsaw Santiago. With an Introduction and an array of digital collages by Edward Morneau, PH is a fectile and not uncertain accomplishment of art and literature. Using the ancient koan as a framing device, Santiago explores themes as varied as 'Beauty', 'Truth, ' and 'The UPS." Here are a few samples: On Not Knowing One's License Has Expired... The rancorous dog does not forget his rancor When he feasts upon the substance of his daily meal, Yet, grows as a weed in rancor When not reminded of his hunger Because of the rancorous weed. On Happiness... Impossible it is to find joy on the beach of sorrow, With so much sand and not enough time To count on a million laughs. On Authority... Authority's grim, lad- 'Specially when it sits down And thinks. Who knows what's at rest: The mind or the ass? Santiago revisits the myth of "Babel" in his short story, "The Frog Tree"; laughter in Hell with "Puritans Go Swimmin'; and law and the death of the haberdasher in "Attorneys for Larry." Literary critic, Arthur Science writes, "Pineapple hands, if anything, is the answer to all of life's riddles." Morneau's collages complement the mystery of the Polish-Bolivian poet, and while his own obsessions with the rare Monkeymen from the ancient Jungles of Malta may be off putting to airy summer readers, those in the winter of their discontent will love these works. "Lincoln & the Serpent in a Fishtank," "Dragon Flowerhead Johnny," and "Annie Oakley & Rip Van Winkle in No Man's Land" are among the many that will leave you horrified and charmed. Santiago was an excellent repairman for Maytag and Sears, but rails against front loaders, which Morneau explores in his Introduction. As a result, Santiago now lives in exile with the Rolling Stones. Morneau is the author of several books--"Willy Loman, Nosferatu," "Billy Budd, WTF?", and "Teacher on Rye" and has enough Santiago's koans to publish at least seventeen more books of his work.

Thom Jones made his literary debut in The New Yorker in 1991. Within six months his stories appeared in Harper's, Esquire, Mirabella, Story, Buzz, and in The New Yorker twice more. "The Pugilist at Rest" - the title story from this stunning collection - took first place in Prize Stories 1993: The O. Henry Awards and was selected for inclusion in Best American Short Stories 1992. He is a writer of astonishing talent. Jones's stories - whether set in the combat zones of Vietnam or the brittle social and intellectual milieu of an elite New England college, whether recounting the poignant last battles of an alcoholic ex-fighter or the hallucinatory visions of an American wandering lost in Bombay in the aftermath of an epileptic fugue - are fueled by an almost brutal vision of the human condition, in a world without mercy or redemption. Physically battered, soul-sick, and morally exhausted, Jones's characters are yet unable to concede defeat: his stories are infused with the improbable grace of the spirit that ought to collapse, but cannot. For in these extraordinary pieces of fiction, it is not goodness that finally redeems us, but the heart's illogical resilience, and the ennobling tenacity with which we cling to each other and to our lives. The publication of The Pugilist at Rest is a major literary event, heralding the arrival of an electrifying new voice in American fiction, and a writer of magnificent depth and range. With these eleven stories, Thom Jones takes his place among the ranks of this country's most important authors.

Why do we watch movies? If we read in search of more life, as Harold Bloom is fond of saying, then we watch movies, this book proposes, in search of wonder. We watch movies in search of awe-inspiring visions, transformative experiences, and moments of emotional transcendence and spiritual sublimity. We watch movies for many of the same reasons that we engage in religion: to fill our ordinary evenings and weekends with something of the extraordinary; to connect our isolated, individual selves to something that is greater than ourselves; and because we yearn for something that is ineffable but absolutely indispensable. This book, through an exploration of some of the most intriguing films of the past two decades, illustrates how movies are partners with religion in inspiring, conveying, and helping us experience what Abraham Joshua Heschel refers to as "radical amazement": the sense that our material universe and our ordinary lives are filled with more wonders than we can ever imagine, and that it takes spiritually—as well as cinematically—trained eyes to uncover these ever-present ocular gems. In addition to illustrating how films utilize religious themes and theological motifs to convey a sense of wonder, this book offers new interpretations of key films from canonical American directors such as Martin Scorsese, Terrence Malick, Richard Linklater, Wes Anderson, and the Coen brothers.

Although the dramatic dimension to Joseph Conrad's fiction is frequently acknowledged, his own experiments in drama have traditionally been marginalized. However, in all of Conrad's plays we see a distinct effort to investigate seriously the dramatic form and some of his plays are startlingly ahead of their time. Furthermore, all of the plays are adaptations and comprise One Day More , based on Tomorrow , Laughing Anne , based on Because of the Dollars, Victory: A Drama and The Secret Agent . The creation of these reveals much about the history, theory and practice of this fascinating cultural process.
