Book 2 of the Amish-Country Mysteries, Broken English compulsively explores a fascinating culture set purposely apart. In the wooded Amish hill country, a professor at a small college, a local pastor, and the county sheriff are the only ones among the mainstream, or "English," who possess the instincts and skills to work the cases that impact all county residents, no matter their code of conduct or religious creed. David Hawkins came to the quiet town of Millersburg to escape his demons and unexpectedly found salvation in Amish life-until his English daughter is brutally murdered.

"A mix of offbeat composition and intoxicating insight....A maddeningly entertaining encore."—Publishers Weekly, starred review A wild and brilliant tale by the winner of the Man Booker Prize and one of our most original storytellers. On a Tuesday in terror-struck London, Blair and Bunny Heath become the first adult conjoined twins ever successfully separated. On a Tuesday in the war-torn Caucasus, Ludmila Derev accidentally kills her grandfather. By December, they find themselves trudging together through a snow field, staring down the barrel of a rebel's gun. Ludmila sets out on a journey west to save her family from starvation and marauding Gnez troops. Hers is an odyssey of sour wit, even sourer vodka, and a Soviet tractor probably running on goat's piss. The Heath twins are released from a newly privatized institution rumored to have been founded for an illegitimate royal baby. They are plunged into a round-the-clock world churning with opportunity, rowdy with the chatter of freedom, self-empowerment, and sex. Dangerous cocktails and a Russian Brides Web site throw these unforgettable characters together with explosive results. DBC Pierre's second novel confirms his place in the ranks of today's most audacious and acclaimed novelists.

For me, the name Dante conjured up two images. The first was the epic depictions of Hell from Dante's Inferno, with people burning for their sins. The second image was a sexual depiction. I don't know where it came from, but as far back as I can remember, I had always associated the name Dante with a beautiful and sexy man. I'd imagined a dark-haired, dark-eyed, gorgeous lothario, the type who could capture a woman's heart with just one look. Dante was the Fabio of my generation, the heartthrob that got women's hearts beating fast, made us want this man to rip our clothes off and to throw us onto the bed. Little did I know that the Dante that walked into my life was very different from the one I'd imagined. Oh, he was dark-haired, dark-eyed, gorgeous, even a lothario ... just ... he wasn't a man. He was a fifteen-year-old boy who was going to send me to the Hell his namesake had written about. And I was his teacher.

-<I>Broken English-: The Creole Language of Carriacou is the first attempt to document - from a linguistic and anthropological perspective - the variety of Creole English spoken on the island, Carriacou. It is a small island in the Eastern Caribbean between Grenada and St. Vincent, which has long been of interest to anthropologists and musicologists due to its relative isolation and the richness of its African-American cultural traditions. This book contains an extensive ecology of the language, which is followed by a sketch of its major grammatical features. Also included are transcriptions of recorded natural language texts, as well as a lexicon. The focus throughout this work is on the language in its social and cultural context, with the goal that readers will come away with a sense of the richness of Carriacou's language and culture."

The English language in the Renaissance was in many ways a collection of competing Englishes. Paula Blank investigates the representation of alternative vernaculars - the dialects of early modern English - in both linguistic and literary works of the period. Blank argues that Renaissance authors such as Spenser, Shakespeare and Jonson helped to construct the idea of a national language, variously known as 'true' English or 'pure' English or the 'King's English', by distinguishing its dialects - and sometimes by creating those dialects themselves. Broken English reveals how the Renaissance 'invention' of dialect forged modern alliances of language and cultural authority. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of Renaissance studies and Renaissance English literature. It will also make fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in the history of English language.

Broken English/Breaking English discusses the work of some prominent contemporary poets writing in English. It examines the challenges to a poetic discourse that was claimed in immediately post-Second World War England to be pure and English. The study begins with a scrutiny of what Donald Davie called Purity of Diction, and offers a contrary view generated earlier by emergent American (literary) English in the work of Walt Whitman and William Carlos Williams. There follows consideration of the clash between Alfred Alvarez labeled the Gentility Principle and American-sourced confessionalism, before the debate moves to the contemporary period. Successive chapters are devoted to women's poetry as offering a challenge to Davie-style pure English; to the new poetic dictions breaking in ethnicminority poetry in England; to work going on in English on the British geographical frontiers - Northern Ireland and Scotland; and to poetry written in ex-British colonies and dominions, specifically Australia. Canterbury in New Zealand.
