Faye ist Schriftstellerin und unterwegs, ihren neuen Roman vorzustellen. Für sie scheint diese Reise lebensentscheidend. Nicht nur hofft sie, endlich die ihr gebührende öffentliche Anerkennung zu finden, sie sucht vor allem Abstand zu einer privaten Katastrophe. Sie begegnet Kollegen, die sich um Kopf und Kragen reden, sie bestreitet Bühnengespräche, in denen man ihr nicht zuhört und sie gibt Interviews, ohne wirklich selbst zu Wort zu kommen. Doch je mehr sie sich auf die anderen einlässt, umso deutlicher wird Faye, was jenseits all der Geschichten und Fiktionen liegt, mit denen die Menschen sich fast obsessiv wappnen. Die Konsequenz, die Faye für sich daraus zieht, ist einleuchtend – führt sie aber geradewegs zurück in die Bodenlosigkeit ihrer persönlichen Situation. Was verbergen wir, indem wir uns zeigen? Und warum wissen wir am wenigsten über das, was uns am meisten bewegt? Rachel Cusk ist »eine originäre, eine geradezu philosophische Schriftstellerin.« (taz) und Kudos ein lebenskluger, beziehungsreicher Roman, erzählt mit schlichter Eleganz und häretischem Witz.

By looking at the color-coded text, it is easy to see how one word or phrase in one language appears as different characters in another. Fluffy the Vulture seeks to make languages familiar, in his comfortably unfamiliar world.

Now back in print, The Vulture is the first novel by the legendary poet, musician, and so-called “godfather of rap” Gil Scott-Heron, written while he was still a university student. First published in 1970 and digging the rhythms of the street, where the biggest deal life has to offer is getting high, The Vulture is a hip and fast-moving thriller, set in lower Manhattan. It relates the strange story of the murder of a teenage boy called John Lee—telling it in the words of four men who knew him when he was just another kid working after school, hanging out, waiting for something to happen. Just who did kill John Lee and why?

Simply because they are large scavenging birds, vultures are often viewed as harbingers of death. But, as Thom van Dooren shows in this cultural and natural history, that dominant association leaves us with a very one-dimensional understanding of a group of actually rather fascinating and diverse creatures. Vulture offers an enlightening new history of this much-misunderstood bird. Vultures vary in type and size, and while some have a diet mainly of bone, others are actually almost completely vegetarian. Most interesting, despite its notorious association with death, the vulture very rarely, if ever, kills for itself. In different cultural mythologies, vultures play a role in disposing of the dead and officiating over human sacrifices, but they have often been viewed as courageous and noble creatures as well—believed to be indispensable in the containment of waste and disease and even to be world creators and divine mothers. Van Dooren explores these many histories, from some of the earliest-known Neolithic sites in which vultures are thought to have consumed the dead to contemporary efforts to reintroduce the bearded vulture into the Alps. Highlighting the rich diversity of vultures and the many ways in which people have understood and lived with them, Vulture invites a new appreciation and wonder for these incredible birds.

"Vulture Culture" presents a new and complex way of thinking about daytime television talk shows. Vulture culture is the process by which the media scavenge the personal narratives and popular discourses that make up everyday knowledge and commonsense and (re-)present them back to us as spectacle, entertainment, and information. This book explores these nuances through a probing analysis of the vast landscape of daytime television talk shows and their relation to important political, social, and economic problems. Using an approach that takes into account the multiple perspectives of political economy, cultural studies, and cultural pedagogy, "Vulture Culture" provides an in-depth and well-rounded examination of this mainstay of television and media culture.
