The boy on the beach by Niki Daly( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and Afrikaans and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reluctant to let the surf crash over him, Joe runs down the beach and has an adventure with an old boat. With dancing sunlit watercolor pictures and joyful words, Daly expresses the physicalness of a small child's fun in the sand and waves. There's a very simple story: after playing on the beach, Joe wanders away and gets lost behind a sand dune. A friendly blond lifeguard, "as cool as a coke," finds Joe and carries the kid piggyback to smiling Mom and Dad, who buy him a king-size ice-cream cone. The boy and his family are black and middle-class; that they feel at home with the whites on the beach is taken for granted. Children will see a relaxed multiracial scene. Older readers who know that this is the new South Africa will be moved by the pictures of easy integration, where just a few years ago this child would have been forbidden entry by the apartheid law. The playful story is set against the beauty of the Cape sea and sky and mountain.--

Modernism, romance, and the fin de siècle : popular fiction and British culture, 1880-1914 by Niki Daly( Book )

32 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Modernism, Romance and the fin de siecle: Popular Fiction and British Culture, 1880-1914, Nicholas Daly explores the popular fiction of the 'romance revival' of the late Victorian and Edwardian years, focusing on the work of such authors as Bram Stoker, H. Rider Haggard and Arthur Conan Doyle. Rather than treating these stories as Victorian Gothic, Daly locates them as part of a 'popular modernism'. Drawing on recent work in cultural studies, this book shows how the vampires, mummies and treasure hunts of these adventure narratives provided a form of narrative theory of cultural change, at a time when Britain was trying to accommodate the 'new imperialism', the rise of professionalism and the expansion of consumerist culture. Daly argues that the presence of a genre such as romance within modernism should force a questioning of the usual distinction between high and popular culture."--Jacket
