DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, Technical University of Chemnitz (Anglistik / Amerikanistik), course: Hauptseminar: Postcolonialism in the Metropolis, language: English, abstract: The 20th century is often referred to as the century of rising cities and of an urbanisation of society due to factors like the Industrialisation, which had a tremendous influence on society. In the beginning 21st century, those developments have even gained in speed and dimension, while further impacts and consequences of this process can only vaguely be anticipated. Moreover, the term ‘globalisation’ can literally be found at every corner. As a result of this long-lasting trend, huge metropolises have been constructed all over the globe. One of them, namely London, will be in the centre of this term paper. Yet, the focus will lie more on some individuals than on the great mass of people living in such a city, as I will examine the portrayal of the main protagonists of the movie titled Dirty Pretty Things (2002), directed by Stephen Frears. I am going to analyse the movie, which must be seen just like any other literary genre, with the focus on its content. The drama Dirty Pretty Things portraits the faith of undocumented – and hence illegal – immigrants to Great Britain and their gloomy everyday-life with an ever insecure future of being allowed to stay in their chosen residence or not. Always hiding and being forced to adapt to other lifestyles with different customs, traditions, or a different language – or generally speaking, another culture – their identity is put into question. Being deeply despaired and seeing no other chances for an improved life, some even risk to sacrifice a kidney for the opportunity of a passport, which is the main issue of Dirty Pretty Things. Can the protagonists Okwe and Senay cope with those difficult circumstances? And how does their identity develop in such an environment of exploitation and assimilation? Can they maintain their cultural roots and form a diaspora, or will they break to pieces under the immense pressure surrounding them?

Janelle Brown is your new must-read author."--Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author of Run Away Nina once bought into the idea that her fancy liberal arts degree would lead to a fulfilling career. When that dream crashed, she turned to stealing from rich kids in L.A. alongside her wily Irish boyfriend, Lachlan.

But when her mom gets sick, Nina puts everything on the line to help her, even if it means running her most audacious, dangerous scam yet.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Many women would love to have the domestic goddess thing nailed, to waft around vintage fairs and antique markets for collectable items to furnish their houses with, and to be able to spend all day preparing the ultimate dinner party. But quite frankly women are too busy – working, going out and having fun – to make their lives ‘just so’. But that doesn't mean that their homes aren't important; their homes are as precious as their time The Domestic Sluttery website was created to show women that it is possible to have a gorgeous home while unapologetically cutting a few corners. The book is a logical expansion from the blog, full of lifestyle tips and with a more in-depth look at home interiors (Hiding the Evidence, Design Porn etc.); food and drink (e.g., Veggie not Virtuous, Baking for Beginners); style and beauty (Fashion Lust, Crafty Clothes etc.); and living (e.g., Fabulous and Thrifty, Sluttery Travels). The word ‘sluttery' is used deliberately. It goes back to the traditional use of the word 'slut’ – being slovenly, a little messy – which can be a very good thing; it's freeing. This isn’t a lifestyle guide for Stepford Wives. those kind of aspirations aren't realistic any more. Instead, Domestic Sluttery offers an aspiration to live life to the full but with permission to make mistakes, to accept that you’re not perfect. Instead of compromising on fun, Sian Meades and her domestic sluts will teach you the quick and easy ways to do domestication on the hop. And will reveal how to make a damn good cocktail!

Yosefa Loshitzky challenges the utopian notion of a post-national "New Europe" by focusing on the waves of migrants and refugees that some view as a potential threat to European identity, a concern heightened by the rhetoric of the war on terror, the London Underground bombings, and the riots in Paris's banlieues. Opening a cinematic window onto this struggle, Loshitzky determines patterns in the representation and negotiation of European identity in several European films from the late 20th and early 21st centuries, including Bernardo Bertolucci's Besieged, Stephen Frears's Dirty Pretty Things, Mathieu Kassovitz's La Haine, and Michael Winterbottom's In This World, Code 46, and The Road to Guantanamo.

Luke is a billionaire with a problem: he’s got a stalker. Sure, Jocelyn’s sort-of attractive (if you like caked-on cosmetics), but she’s deranged too and a restraining order isn’t cutting it. The answer? A fake bride to get his stalker off his back once and for all. Patty wants to quit being an escort, but then one last offer comes in that’s too good to turn down: to be a fake fiancée for the incredibly magnetic and filthy rich Luke Montgomery. What she didn’t expect? For Luke to tell his friends that she makes a living as a woman of the night. After all, Patty’s secretly expecting the billionaire's baby now… but she can’t be his dirty little secret. Our heroine is a resourceful woman, but she feels betrayed by the billionaire in this spicy tale. But is the betrayal real, or did something else go completely awry? The plot twist is what we love best about City Girls: these saucy women find themselves in difficult situations, but use ingenuity and a bit of sass to squeeze themselves out! This story is a follow-up to My Boyfriend’s Dad, but all of my books are standalones and do not need to be read in order. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and always a HEA for my readers.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Unlike her best friends Mia and Lola, Harlow Vega has a reputation for always being up for a fling. Twelve drunk and wild hours in Sin City married to the ridiculously hot and rugged Canadian fisherman Finn Roberts, who (no surprise) is amazing with his muscular hands - and his lips and the rest of his body - was just her speed. But it was just a thing: dirty, rowdy, and easy... until Finn turns up in her hometown on business. Harlow's not ready to be tied down but when the whole crew is handing out together, there's just something about him. It may not be love (hell, it may not even be like), but their exciting, tension-filled hookups provide the perfect distraction from the scary life changes they're both facing - challenges neither is sure how to handle, let alone fix. One night together turns into two, and soon Finn's mysterious business trip has gone on for weeks. They agreed on the sex-wild, wet, kinky-but now their bordercrossing booty call is starting to feel like the real deal. And for two people used to being in control, taking the ultimate plunge by faling in love feels a lot more like flat-out falling.
