Part Blood, Part Ketchup PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Part Blood, Part Ketchup free pdf Part Blood, Part Ketchup analyzes novels by 20th century authors Edith Wharton, J.D. Salinger, Philip Roth, John Irving, and Jamaica Kincaid, uncovering trends that obliterate cultural divides. With unrestrained American voices, the collective pitch of their complaints soars, revealing an unmistakable formula of heightened self-exposure and fury. As in the case of protagonists on the page and the screen, it becomes difficult to distinguish authentic suffering from performance_or in the words of one reviewer_the ratio of blood to ketchup. Breathtaking in scope,Part Blood, Part Ketchup situates over one hundred years of literature and film within national, historical, and global contexts, tracing 19th century European allegations of a troubling narrowness in the American character to contemporary insights about the global superpower. Ultimately, Karen Tolchin finds that subtle evolution of the American coming-of-age narrative has performed significant cultural work in the construction of our national mythology.
