Angelheaded hipster : a life of Jack Kerouac by Steve Turner( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fifties, the movies had James Dean and Brando, rock 'n' roll had Elvis, and the American novel had Jack Kerouac. Kerouac, father of the Beat Generation and creator of a "spontaneous bop prose" style, which embodied the riffing and improvisation techniques that were used by jazzmen, portrayed characters hungry for experience and eager to discover a new vision of life. He made the life of a writer sound exciting and, along with his Beat contemporaries, helped liberate poetry from the page and made the discussion of religion and spirituality hip. Here, writer Turner examines the life and work of the pivotal figure of the fifties' countercultural revolution, and explores the reasons why Kerouac's unique prose and his search for the truth continues to inspire new readers.--From publisher description

Popcultured : thinking Christianly about style, media and entertainment by Steve Turner( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There's no avoiding popular culture -- we've been enculturated into it. What does it mean to be faithful Christians in a pop culture world? How do we think Christianly about celebrity and leisure? Some Christians try to abstain from "worldly" pursuits, while others consume culture indiscriminately, assuming it has little effect on them. But if Christ is Lord of all of life, then there ought to be Christian ways to engage with and appreciate popular culture. Steve Turner has spent his career chronicling and interviewing people from the worlds of music, film, television, fashion, art and literature. Now he provides an insider's guide to a wide range of entertainment pursuits, with biblical frameworks for understanding pop culture genres and artifacts. Turner explores: how movies use redemptive narratives and parables; ways journalistic headlines convey worldview assumptions; differences between famous people in the past and celebrities today; what ideas are communicated through clothing and fashion design; how technology changes our sense of what is real; and much more. God entrusts culture to us and gives us the ability to critique it, enjoy it and create it. This book will help you become a better cultural critic, consumer and creator. - Publisher
