Book Description :

Vocal Projections: Voices in Documentary examines a previously neglected topic in the field of documentary studies: the political, aesthetic, and affective functions that voices assume. On topics ranging from the celebrity voice over to ventriloquism, from rockumentary screams to feminist vocal politics, these essays demonstrate myriad ways in which voices make documentary meaning beyond their expository, evidentiary and authenticating functions. The international range of contributors offers an innovative approach to the issues relating to voices in documentary. While taking account of the existing paradigm in documentary studies pioneered by Bill Nichols, in which voice is equated with political rhetoric and subjective representation, the contributors move into new territory, addressing current and emerging research in voice, sound, music and posthumanist studies.

Book Description :

In Brownsville’s twenty-one housing projects, the young cops and the teenagers who stand solemnly on the street corners are bitter and familiar enemies. The Ville, as the Brownsville–East New York section of Brooklyn is called by the locals, is one of the most dangerous places on earth—a place where homicide is a daily occurrence. Now, Greg Donaldson, a veteran urban reporter and a longtime teacher in Brooklyn’s toughest schools, evokes this landscape with stunning and frightening accuracy. The Ville follows a year in the life of two urban black males from opposite sides of the street. Gary Lemite, an enthusiastic young Housing police officer, charges recklessly into gunfire in pursuit of respect and promotion. Sharron Corley, a member of a gang called the LoLifes and the star of the Thomas Jefferson High School play, is also looking for respect as he tries to survive these streets. Brilliantly capturing the firestorm of violence that is destroying a generation, waged by teenagers who know at thirty yards the difference between a MAC-10 machine pistol and a .357 Magnum, The Ville is the story of our inner cities and the lives of the young men who remain trapped there. In the tradition of There Are No Children Here, Clockers, and Random Family, The Ville is a vivid and unforgettable contribution to our understanding of race and violence in America today.

Modern Family TV Show Early Years Trivia: 500 Quiz Questions & Bonus Fun Facts is authored by a sitcom expert who penned the greatest trivia quiz books on the most popular television sitcoms (e.g., Seinfeld Trivia: Everything About Nothing, Friends Trivia: Channel Your Inner Unagi, The Big Bang Theory Trivia: Challenging, and Cheers Trivia: It’s a Little Known Fact...). His latest effort, Modern Family Trivia: Early Years, is the best source for accurate and well-written trivia questions about one of the top-rated sitcoms of the 2010s. Modern Family Trivia is the perfect book for every type of fan, whether occasional viewer or rabid enthusiast. There are 500 questions with varying degrees of difficulty within each chapter. The reader will encounter easy and moderate queries in addition to some challenging and genuine head-scratching brainteasers. Unlike most trivia books that have measly one-word answers, Modern Family Trivia provides expanded descriptions containing anecdotes, humorous dialogue, or bonus fun facts to further enhance the reading experience, making it more enjoyable and entertaining. In addition, scattered throughout the book are random text boxes featuring insider secrets about the show, its creators, the actors, and other contributors to the series.

Modern Family Trivia contains more information than any other trivia quiz book written on the subject, and the author's ingenious presentation has revolutionized the trivia quiz format, an unprecedented feat in publishing history. Modern Family Trivia commences with general information about the show and its history, which includes noteworthy facts and intriguing trivia guaranteed to educate and enthrall the reader. The following two sections address guest stars and recurring characters. Modern Family was known for signing big-name movie and television stars as well as developing some of the most unique and fascinating recurring characters in sitcom history. Thus, two chapters are specifically devoted to these illustrious scene-stealers. The show's vast guest star list featured well-known thespians, such as Kevin Hart, James Marsden, Matthew Broderick, Greg Kinnear, Elizabeth Banks, Jane Krakowski, Edward Norton, Shelley Long, Chazz Palminteri, Matt Dillon, Nathan Lane, Benjamin Bratt, Jesse Eisenberg, Leslie Mann, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jennifer Tilly, and many more. In addition, the trivia inquiry delves even deeper by spotlighting the most popular recurring characters, namely Dylan, Frank Dunphy, Gil Thorpe, Dede, Sal, Shorty, Pepper, and Javier, to mention a few. The next segment of the book covers the most memorable moments of the show which pertain to all three branches of the Pritchett family tree. The questions address broader episode plots and character storylines. The remaining eleven chapters cover specific information directly associated with the members of each family—Pritchetts (Jay, Gloria and Manny), Dunphys (Phil, Claire, Haley, Alex and Luke), and Pritchett-Tuckers (Mitch, Cam and Lily)—highlighting the most uproarious scenes and unforgettable episodes while testing the viewer’s attention to detail. There is something for everyone. Casual watchers and avid fanatics will be equally captivated by this meticulously crafted tome. Modern Family Trivia is guaranteed to provide hours of entertainment and laughter as the quiz-taker regales in reliving the finest moments of the show.

Tashy just wasn't the friend for her, and that's what it was—her high and hopeful expectations had been crushed again. Oh, she had wanted to make them work so badly, and now...It's not my parents' fault, she told herself in an attempt to cool the heartsick feeling that surged through her veins. . .It was hard to accept that this was it; another dream was shattered, another chance for a friendship lost.
