E-BOOK EXCERPT

Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I. I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. . . . This is the testament of Paul BΓ€umer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . . if only he can come out of the war alive. β€œThe world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review

E-BOOK EXCERPT

A veteran of World War I, Erich Maria Remarque found himself in a unique position to render the experience of war, both its internal and external ravages, in an intimate and realistic way. Responding directly to the then-nameless trauma many veterans and soldiers experienced in their lives, Remarque's novel is often hailed as pacifist work, though it often defies classification as a result of its undeniable loyalty to simple storytelling. This compelling volume explores the life and work of Erich Maria Remarque and expands upon the theme of war present in his classic novel. Readers are presented with a diverse set of essays that provide a wide range of perspectives on questions such as whether war results in a loss of innocence, and whether the book offers critiques of modern warfare. This edition also touches upon current perspectives related to war and peace, allowing readers to connect the events of the text to the issues of today's world.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Here are seven superb, subtle, surprising stories that show, through a prism of unforgettable characters, what it means to live between two worlds: India and Canada. Anosh Irani, the masterful, bestselling author of The Parcel and The Song of Kahunsha, knows of what he writes: Twenty years ago, to the mystification of family and friends, Irani left India for Vancouver, Canada, a city and a country completely foreign to him. His plan was both grand and impractical: he would reinvent himself as a writer. Miraculously, he did just that, publishing critically acclaimed novels and plays set in his beloved hometown of Mumbai. But this uprooting did not come without a steep price--one that Irani for the first time directly explores in this book. In these stunning stories and one "half truth" (a semi-fictional meditation on the experience of being an immigrant) we meet a swimming instructor determined to reenact John Cheever's iconic short story "The Swimmer" in the pools of Mumbai; a famous Indian chef who breaks down on a New York talk show; a gangster's wife who believes a penguin at the Mumbai zoo is the reincarnation of her lost child; an illegal immigrant in Vancouver who plays a fateful game of cricket; and a kindly sweets-shop owner whose hope for a new life in Canada leads to a terrible choice. The book starts and ends with a gorgeous, emotionally raw "translation" to the page of the author's own life between worlds, blurring the line between fiction and fact. Translated from the Gibberish confirms Anosh Irani as a unique, inventive, vitally important voice in contemporary fiction.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Published to commemorate the centenary of Erich Maria Remarque's birth, this book tells for the first time the full story of the Academy Award winning film of Remarque's extraordinary novel. When published in 1928, All Quiet on the Western Front transformed the popular image of war; the film, directed by Lewis Milestone, was released hot on its heels the following year and was instantly acclaimed a classic. It remains the quintessential view of World War One, and of the brutality and waste of war. Like the novel, however, it suffered censorship internationally: it was banned in Italy, and in Germany following violent protests, and cut elsewhere, Hollywood included. This fascinating account covers the film's origins, production and fortunes on and after its release. Andrew Kelly's five years' research has included visits to archives around the world, viewings of all extant versions of the film and interviews with those involved in its production. The book is illustrated with scenes from All Quiet on the Western Front and uses extensive extracts from the screenplays. It will be the definitive history of this great film and is a fitting tribute to Erich Maria Remarque.
