Victor Serge quiz

I need audiobook recommendations!

I need some new audiobooks! I'm a screen printer and find that listening to an audiobook helps me to focus and get more done during the day and consequently, I get through 3-4 books a week. I'll listen to just about anything (science fiction, biographies, western, you name it), as long as it's engaging but doesn't require too much concentration. I've listed my favorites below. Tell me what you've enjoyed listening to and what I've been missing! [more inside]

Movie-like memories

Some of my best memories, when I think back on them, become more cinematic than linear, more musical than factual. They are a flowing montage of events, energy, motion. Often the memory is of an adventure or journey. Why does this happen? Who has written or made art about the capacity for our memories to be transformed in this way? [more inside]

voila, la fenêtre

I read a quote once, that is failing to come to mind... something like 'voila, la fenêtre', from a piece of french literature, or perhaps a play. it was meant as a darkly comedic response to a heartfelt expression, kinda like Catherine Keener's character did in Being John Malkovich. Anyone have an inkling?

Tips for a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship interview?

Anyone have any experience with the Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship? I'm applying (this week!) and it was indicated to me that almost all applicants go through an interview process. Any tips, suggestions, ideas on how to sell myself? (Additional info: I'm a doctoral candidate in English, focusing on contemporary world literature from places of long term conflict. I've heard that literature folks are not as well received because they don't "Focus on humanitarian projects.")

Talking 'bout their generation

Just finished reading Hemingway's Moveable Feast, and want more.

Looking for a book on the history of science fiction literature.

I'm working with an English teacher that has a speculative fiction class for seniors in high school. He’s looking for a book (possibly something he would use as a supplement in class but also for his own personal reading) on the history of science fiction literature. He’s looking for something that is a retrospective and contains some literary criticism (optional). It can be a textbook but doesn’t necessarily need to be. There seems to be quite a few on Amazon but if I could get it narrowed down that would be great.
