    Cambodian writers represented in this collection of short fiction depict the social, political and economic challenges of life in contemporary Cambodia. The various tales provide humanistic insight into Cambodia's world of rapid modernization since the 1990s as the country recovers from decades of political and economic instability. Among the stories. "Just a Human Being," plays on memories of the Khmer Rouge embedded in contemporary bureaucratic practices of the early 1990s. Other stories, like "Lord of the Land" and "The Boat," are allegories about the lingering traces of the Khmer Rouge era on contemporary social relationships and politics. They explore a theme found in many of these stories: the need to overcome karma and reclaim compassion in a desperate world of poverty and sheer survival. Many of the short stories are ethnographic and provide a snapshot into life in contemporary Cambodia.

  • "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?": Joyce Carol Oates (Women Writers: Texts and Contexts)

    By Joyce Carol Oates

    Joyce Carol Oates’s prize-winning story “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” takes up troubling subjects that continue to occupy her in her fiction: the romantic longings and limited options of adolescent women; the tensions between mothers and daughters; the sexual victimization of women; and the American obsession with violence. Inspired by a magazine story about a serial killer, its remarkable portrait of the dreamy teenager Connie has made it a feminist classic. Connie’s life anticipates the emergence of American society from the social innocence of the fifties into the harsher contemporary realities of war, random violence, and crime. The story was the basis for the movie Smooth Talk, which became the subject of much feminist debate. This casebook includes an introduction by the editor, a chronology of Oates’s life, an authoritative text of “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been,” an essay by Oates on Smooth Talk, the original Life article about the serial killer, ten critical essays (including two about the film), and a bibliography.

    In an age of NSA spying and unprecedented government oversight, young Alan Stewart wants nothing to do with change?that is until he is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, and forced to face reality. Consumerism, passivity, apathy and distraction. The internet is no place to attempt changing anything that matters. A young Scottish drifter, Alan Stewart, struggles to come of age in a world he knows only through the world wide web. But come of age he does, learning something of truth and the price of freedom along the way. Arrested for a cybercrime he did not commit, Alan is shipped to Scotland's e-crime unit in Aberdeen with a young hacktivist known only as Topiary. After an escape worthy of The 39 Steps they set about establishing a Scottish Occupy camp, along with others who feel that social inequalities are rising to historically unprecedented heights.Introduced to the story of Bradley Manning, Alan is forced to question his long-held political apathy and ask himself what he is prepared to do for the struggle. Another world is possible. Make ready your dreams. Inspired in part by a true story, #freetopiary is not just an insightful commentary on internet privacy and our rights in a world increasingly dependent on technology, but the touching story of a brotherhood and the bonds we develop in times of crisis.
