Headwraps : a global journey by Cheryl Alexander Malcolm( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do we cover our heads? Why do women wear veils? Why do men in India wear turbans? Who wears headwraps in the United States? What do they all have in common? These are questions that Georgia Scott set out to answer. She was fascinated by the fact that so many people all over the world cover their heads. In 2000 she put in for a leave-of-absence from the New York Times, mapped out an itinerary, cashed in her stock, and bought a stack of plane tickers five inches thick. She set off on an adventure across five continents with the singular, determined purpose of documenting the world's headwraps. This book recreates those travels. With every turn of the page, we follow Georgia Scott as she journeys around the world. She takes us to the Czech Republic, where satkas serve as symbols of national pride. We journey east to Malaysia, where handwoven kain dastars are wrapped for grooms by village elders. We explore the origins of the pagri, the turban worn by male Sikhs in India. And we swing by southern Nigeria to admire the color-drenched gélés of Yoruba women. These turbans all look remarkably different and serve very different functions in dramatically different cultures. How and why does the turban exist in such variety? What are its meanings? How has it changed? Headwraps are stunning sartorial creations for the head. They can be made of silk, cotton, gauze, muslin, wool and other fabrics. They can be tossed, wrapped, draped, tucked, tied or pinned in hundreds of styles. They can distinguish the highbred from the pauper, Christian from Muslim, men from women, and clan from clan. They currently make for hip fashion statements in France and America. In Headwraps, Georgia Scott retraces the dizzying year she spent travelling the globe. She researched the style, s documented the folklore, and snapped photos of headwraps wherever she went. The result is a stunning collection of images and anecdotes of a remarkable journey to chronicle our mysterious and fascinating efforts to cover our heads
Jean Rhys : a study of the short fiction by Cheryl Alexander Malcolm( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Jean Rhys: A Study of the Short Fiction, Cheryl Alexander Malcolm and David Malcolm provide the first full-length critical analysis of Rhys's contributions to the short story genre. Maintaining that Rhys's overriding interest was the outsider - "the underdog, the normally silenced, the excluded, the ignored"--The Malcolms examine the stories from the perspective of this motif. Selected stories - among them "Illusion," "Mannequin," and "Let Them Call It Jazz" - are given in-depth treatment, as are the heretofore neglected technical aspects of Rhys's work: narration, style, plot, action, and setting
British and Irish short-fiction writers, 1945-2000 by Cheryl Alexander Malcolm( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays on British and Irish authors of short stories written between 1945 and 2000 that are traditional in subject matter and technique, and cover social, political and economic changes that occurred during this time. The Irish contribution to short fiction in English is second to none. Short fiction in languages other than English also plays a significant role in the postwar British and Irish literary world, including the use of the working-class Scottish dialect
Understanding Anita Brookner by Cheryl Alexander Malcolm( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding Anita Brookner examines the undeniably bleak view of the world in Brookner's fiction and the solitary protagonists whose "faith in a better world" is both their tragedy and their beauty. Cheryl Alexander Malcolm acquaints the reader with Brookner's distinguished career (first as an eminent art critic and historian, then as a writer), critical acclaim and awards, London birth and lifelong residence, and Polish Jewish family background. She examines the limited range of literary forms with which Brookner, abjuring the postmodern devices of jumbled chronologies and multiple narrators, contents herself. She illustrates Brookner's recurrent point of view, characterized by traditional British cultural values - understatement, deference to authority, and acceptance of a class system."--Book jacket
