The Boundary-Busting Tarot with an Asian Flair One of the most popular modern styles of art, important from Japan, is known as manga. It grew up on Asian comic books and features bursts of color combined with passionate characters. In The Manga Tarot, this use of art perfectly captures the essence of the traditional Tarot, making it ideal for all Tarot readers and ideal for so many people entranced by the manga style. But that's only the beginning. The Manga Tarot challenges you with exciting and new color schemes and a fantastic gender inversion: cards usually featuring men have women and vice versa. This plays with the Eastern idea of Yin/Yang and of the idea that all people—and archetypes—have masculine and feminine qualities. It will help you bust through any pre-conceived beliefs and help you develop astounding new interpretations that transcend anything you've done before! The Chinese letters printed on the cards, representing seasons associated with suits, returns the aura of mystery and otherworldliness that the Tarot once had, and helps put the real magick back into all of your readings. The accompanying booklet explains the inner meanings of each card and provides a relationship-focused reading that you can use right away. If you love manga and anime art or are entranced by all things from the mystic Far East, or if you just want a new Tarot deck that will open your mind to new potentials and possibilities within a familiar and friendly format, this is the deck you need to use every day.

The linguistically innovative aspect of Francophone African literature has been recognized and studied from a variety of angles over recent decades, yet little attention has been paid to what happens to such literature when it is translated into another language. Taking as its corpus all sub-Saharan Francophone African texts that have ever been published in English, this book explores the ways in which translators approach innovative features such as African-language borrowings, neologisms and other deliberate manipulations of French, depictions of sociolinguistic variation, and a variety of types of wordplay. The implications of their translation decisions are drawn out with reference to the broader significances that are often accorded to postcolonial literature, and earlier critics' calls for a decolonized translation practice are explored from both a practical and theoretical angle. These findings are used to push towards a detailed investigation of the postcolonial turn in translation studies, drawing on the work of key postcolonial theorists such has Homi K. Bhabha and Gayatri Spivak. This is a timely and incisive critical assessment of contemporary discourses on the ethics and politics of translation.

“….An expansive, eclectic, and innovative novel.”—Women's Review of Books A modern-day Things Fall Apart, The Amputated Memory explores the ways in which an African woman’s memory preserves, and strategically forgets, moments in her tumultuous past as well as the cultural past of her country, in the hopes of making a healthier future possible. Pinned between the political ambitions of her philandering father, the colonial and global influences of encroaching and exploitative governments, and the traditions of her Cameroon village, Halla Njokè recalls childhood traumas and reconstructs forgotten experiences to reclaim her sense of self. Winner of the Noma Award—previous honorees include Mamphela Ramphele, Ngugi wa Thiong’o, and Ken Saro-Wiwa—The Amputated Memory was called by the Noma jury “a truly remarkable achievement . . . a deeply felt presentation of the female condition in Africa; and a celebration of women as the country’s memory.”

Late nineteenth-century Britain experienced an unprecedented explosion of visual print culture and a simultaneous rise in literacy across social classes. New printing technologies facilitated quick and cheap dissemination of images—illustrated books, periodicals, cartoons, comics, and ephemera—to a mass readership. This Victorian visual turn prefigured the present-day impact of the Internet on how images are produced and shared, both driving and reflecting the visual culture of its time. From this starting point, Drawing on the Victorians sets out to explore the relationship between Victorian graphic texts and today’s steampunk, manga, and other neo-Victorian genres that emulate and reinterpret their predecessors. Neo-Victorianism is a flourishing worldwide phenomenon, but one whose relationship with the texts from which it takes its inspiration remains underexplored. In this collection, scholars from literary studies, cultural studies, and art history consider contemporary works—Alan Moore’s League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Moto Naoko’s Lady Victorian, and Edward Gorey’s Gashlycrumb Tinies, among others—alongside their antecedents, from Punch’s 1897 Jubilee issue to Alice in Wonderland and more. They build on previous work on neo-Victorianism to affirm that the past not only influences but converses with the present. Contributors: Christine Ferguson, Kate Flint, Anna Maria Jones, Linda K.
