♥ Book Title : Inside Voices at the Girl Aquarium
☯ Full Synopsis : "This fictional book is about six teenage girls who let their “inside voices” out and escape their troubled lives using a simple, but powerful weapon: their poetry. At a NYC writing workshop, their talk isn't about pedicures and designer bags. Instead, they meet each month in this “safe” place to express their real fears, pressures and joys. Here, Tamara from Harlem dreams of going to an Ivy League college. Adela from Queens proclaims her science project to “fix” the world and Lorna describes the rush of playing lead guitar in a rock band. Through writing and sharing their work, the girls deal with issues like peer pressure, family troubles and bullying. Join them as they share their poems for the first time in public and attempt to break out of the Girl Aquarium."Article| Gina Inzunza| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Aquarium
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Like Melville, Faulkner, and McCarthy, Vann is already one of the great ones of American literature."—ABC(Spain) “Vann’s prose is as pure as a gulp of water from an Alaskan stream.”—Financial Times David Vann’s dazzling debut Legend of a Suicide was reviewed in over a 150 major global publications, won 11 prizes worldwide, was on 40 “best books of the year” lists, and established its author as a literary master. Since then, Vann has delivered an exceptional body of work, receiving, among others, best foreign novel in France and Spain (France’s Prix Medicis Etranger, Spain’s Premi Llibreter), a California Book Award, and the mid-career St. Francis College Literary Prize. Aquarium, his implosive new book and first to be published by Grove, will take Vann to a wider audience than ever before. Twelve year old Caitlin lives alone with her mother—a docker at the local container port—in subsidized housing next to an airport in Seattle. Each day, while she waits to be picked up after school, Caitlin visits the local aquarium to study the fish. Gazing at the creatures within the watery depths, Caitlin accesses a shimmering universe beyond her own. When she befriends an old man at the tanks one day, who seems as enamored of the fish as she, Caitlin cracks open a dark family secret and propels her once-blissful relationship with her mother toward a precipice of terrifying consequence. In crystalline, chiseled yet graceful prose, Aquarium takes us into the heart of a brave young girl whose longing for love and capacity for forgiveness transforms the damaged people around her. Relentless and heartbreaking, primal and redemptive, Aquarium is a transporting story from one of the best American writers of our time."Article| David Vann| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Mark Twain's Aquarium
☯ Full Synopsis : ""What I lacked and what I needed," confessed Samuel Clemens in 1908, "was grandchildren." Near the end of his life, Clemens became the doting friend and correspondent of twelve schoolgirls ranging in age from ten to sixteen. For Clemens, "collecting" these surrogate granddaughters was a way of overcoming his loneliness, a respite from the pessimism, illness, and depression that dominated his later years. In Mark Twain's Aquarium, John Cooley brings together virtually every known communication exchanged between the writer and the girls he called his "angelfish." Cooley also includes a number of Clemens's notebook entries, autobiographical dictations, short manuscripts, and other relevant materials that further illuminate this fascinating story. Clemens relished the attention of these girls, orchestrating chaperoned visits to his homes and creating an elaborate set of rules and emblems for the Aquarium Club. He hung their portraits in his billiard room and invented games and plays for their amusement. For much of 1908, he was sending and receiving a letter a week from his angelfish. Cooley argues that Clemens saw cheerfulness and laughter as his only defenses against the despair of his late years. His enchantment with children, years before, had given birth to such characters as Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher, and Huck Finn. In the frivolities of the Aquarium Club, it found its final expression. Cooley finds no evidence of impropriety in Clemens behavior with the girls. Perhaps his greatest crime, the editor suggests, was in idealizing them, in regarding them as precious collectibles. "He tried to trap them in the amber of endless adolescence," Cooley writes. "By pleading that they stay young and innocent, he was perhaps attempting to deny that, as they and the world continued to change, so must he.""Article| Samuel Langhorne Clemens| Statement ..."
