This Is This Country

This Is This Country

The award-winning BBC comedy This Country documents the day-to-day lives of young cousins Kerry and Lee 'Kurtan' Mucklowe who live in a small village in the Cotswolds. Filmed in the same mocumentary style as The Office, the show follows them as they interact with the other residents of their claustrophobic Cotswold village: the local vicar (and one-time 80s popstar), Reverend Francis Seaton; aspiring tattoo artist, bodyguard and S Club 7 fan, Mandy Harris; and self-confessed peeper and bookies' favourite for Worst Father in Britain, Martin Mucklowe. Described by the Guardian's Lucy Mangan as 'perfection', Helen Bownass in Stylist as 'the funniest show on TV' and Simon Horsford in the Daily Telegraph as 'superb', This Country has run for two series and is already a smash hit with viewers, winning three BAFTA awards (for Best Comedy Writers, Best Scripted Comedy and Best Female Performance in a Comedy) and three RTS Programme Awards. The recent iPlayer special garnered 5 million streams alone. Now, this autumn, comes the first official tie-in. In keeping with the mocumentary style of the show, and in the manner of best TV comedy books, This Is This Country is a hilarious 'in world' spoof, and a parody of local parish newsletters. Featuring, among others, 'Kerry's Village Tw*t List', the vicar's poetry, a log of all the times Kerry and Kurtan have seen Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen around the village, Mandy's correspondence to her adopted dog Digby, Kerry's neighbourhood watch diary, and hilarious adverts, notices and pictures of village life, This is This Country is as brilliantly observed as the show itself and a must-have for fans.

No Future In This Country

No Future In This Country

No Future in This Country: The Prophetic Pessimism of Bishop Henry McNeal Turner is a history of the career of Bishop Henry McNeal Turner (1834–1915), specifically focusing on his work from 1896 to 1915. Drawing on the copious amount of material from Turner’s speeches, editorial, and open and private letters, Andre E. Johnson tells a story of how Turner provided rhetorical leadership during a period in which America defaulted on many of the rights and privileges gained for African Americans during Reconstruction. Unlike many of his contemporaries during this period, Turner did not opt to proclaim an optimistic view of race relations. Instead, Johnson argues that Turner adopted a prophetic persona of a pessimistic prophet who not only spoke truth to power but, in so doing, also challenged and pushed African Americans to believe in themselves. At this time in his life, Turner had no confidence in American institutions or that the American people would live up to the promises outlined in their sacred documents. While he argued that emigration was the only way for African Americans to retain their “personhood” status, he also would come to believe that African Americans would never emigrate to Africa. He argued that many African Americans were so oppressed and so stripped of agency because they were surrounded by continued negative assessments of their personhood that belief in emigration was not possible. Turner’s position limited his rhetorical options, but by adopting a pessimistic prophetic voice that bore witness to the atrocities African Americans faced, Turner found space for his oratory, which reflected itself within the lament tradition of prophecy.

I Die By This Country

I Die By This Country

The first novel available to English readers by Fawzia Zouari, one of the most important North African authors writing today, begins with an emergency crew’s arrival at a Parisian apartment. Two emaciated young women, sisters, are brought out on stretchers. To the crowd of onlookers the women’s condition is mystifying; for the two sisters, this is the inescapable end to a tragic series of events. Inspired by an actual news story from the French headlines, I Die by This Country introduces us to Nacéra and Amira. Casting her mind back in the midst of the opening pages’ upheaval, Nacéra pieces together her fragmentary knowledge of her parents’ lives in rural French Algeria and their immigration to Paris in the years following Algeria’s war for independence. Her memories of how both she and Amira struggled to find their place as children of immigrants reveals the enormous stress of social exclusion and identity conflicts facing immigrant youth. Nacéra and her family yearn for acceptance, but the reader sees this dream becoming increasingly unattainable. Zouari’s frank prose and penetrating storytelling deftly relates the multigenerational experience of Franco-Algerian immigration during the last quarter of the twentieth century. As France continues, like so many western countries, to struggle with questions regarding national identity, immigration, and its colonial past, the experiences depicted in this novel resonate more than ever.
