Hocus Pocus
amazon.co.uk
Eugene Debs Hartke (named after the famous early 20th century Socialist working class leader) describes an odyssey from college professor to prison inmate to prison warden back again to prisoner in another of Vonnegut's bitter satirical explorations of how and where (and why) the American dream begins to die. Employing his characteristic narrative device--a retrospective diary in which the protagonist retraces his life at its end, a desperate and disconnected series of events here in Hocus Pocus show Vonnegut with his mask off and his rhetorical devices unshielded.Debs (and Vonnegut) see academia just as imprisoning as the corrupt penal system and they regard politics as the furnishing and marketing of lies. Debs, already disillusioned by circumstance, quickly tracks his way toward resignation and then fury. As warden and prisoner, Debs (and the reader) come to understand that the roles are interchangeable; as a professor jailed for ""radical"" statements in the classroom reported by a reactionary student, he comes to see the folly of all regulation. The ""hocus pocus"" of the novel's title does not describe only the jolting reversals and seemingly motiveless circumstance which attend Debs' disillusion and suffering, but also describe the political, social, and economic system of a country built upon can't, and upon the franchising of lies.At 68, Vonnegut had not only abandoned the sentiment and cracked optimism manifest in Slaughterhouse-Five, he had abandoned any belief in the system or faith for its recovery. This novel is another in a long series of farewells to the farmland funeral rites of childhood.ABOUT THE AUTHORKurt Vonnegut (1922-2007) is one of the most beloved American writers of the twentieth century. Vonnegut's audience increased steadily since his first five pieces in the 1950s and grew from there. His 1968 novel Slaughterhouse-Five has become a canonic war novel with Joseph Heller's Catch-22 to form the truest and darkest of what came from World War II.Vonnegut began his career as a science fiction writer, and his early novels--Player Piano and The Sirens of Titan--were categorized as such even as they appealed to an audience far beyond the reach of the category. In the 1960s, Vonnegut became closely associated with the Baby Boomer generation, a writer on that side, so to speak.Now that Vonnegut's work has been studied as a large body of work, it has been more deeply understood and unified. There is a consistency to his satirical insight, humor and anger which makes his work so synergistic. It seems clear that the more of Vonnegut's work you read, the more it resonates and the more you wish to read. Scholars believe that Vonnegut's reputation (like Mark Twain's) will grow steadily through the decades as his work continues to increase in relevance and new connections are formed, new insights made.ABOUT THE SERIESAuthor Kurt Vonnegut is considered by most to be one of the most important writers of the twentieth century. His books Slaughterhouse-Five (named after Vonnegut's World War II POW experience) and Cat's Cradle are considered among his top works. RosettaBooks offers here a complete range of Vonnegut's work, including his first novel (Player Piano, 1952) for readers familiar with Vonnegut's work as well as newcomers.  read more

Hades & Hocus Pocus
amazon.co.uk
Two classic noir novellas about young men who find treacherous jobs during the Great Depression. In "Hades", Alexander Titus, a former Olympic decathlon star, comes to Hollywood looking for work. He and his friend Haw Gooch are down to their last dollar when they find jobs as bodyguards for erratic film producer Roger Quinlan. Quinlan seems quite paranoid, claiming that he's being stalked by a demon and that he found Hades in a cavern in New Mexico. The story sounds crazy, but when Titus is framed for murder, he realizes Quinlan's alleged hell might be the one place where he can also find the truth. In "Hocus Pocus", two penniless traveling magicians respond to an ad for a mind reader. A psychology professor hires them to infiltrate a group of evangelists who incorporate mind reading into their preaching. Cal "Marvelous" Merton and his assistant, Imagination Daly, will study the evangelists' methods and report back on whether their mind reading is genuine. But as Merton and Daly join the New Apostles, the air of danger is palpable, and questions arise about their employer and what exactly they're investigating.  read more

Hocus Pocus Takes the Train
amazon.co.uk
As this hilarious and virtually wordless graphic novel begins, Hocus Pocus, a rabbit who lives inside a magician's hat, is about to board a train when he's surprised to spy another rabbit nearby. Though he's disappointed when he realizes it's actually only a stuffed rabbit (which clever young readers will know all along!), Hocus Pocus soon comes to understand it's a treasured toy that has been accidentally left behind by a small child, and he quickly jumps into action to try and reunite the two. Unfortunately, what should be an easy mission for the speedy rabbit turns out to be anything but, as his menacing nemesis, the magician's dog, attempts to thwart the would-be hero at every turn. Can Hocus Pocus's wits and perseverance prevail against the dog's superior size and strength and ultimately save the day? Award-winning author Sylvie Desrosiers has crafted a fun adventure for the endearing and energetic Hocus Pocus. And with no words (even the thought bubbles contain illustrations), the retro, animation-style images by comic artist Remy Simard tell the whole action-packed tale. Reminiscent of classic cartoons, there are mini cliffhangers on each spread, keeping the story briskly moving along at a perfect pace for young children. This book will have huge appeal for pre-readers or reluctant readers, who will love being able to ?read? it all the way through on their own, just by looking at the pictures. This visually entertaining no-words story provides an excellent first step toward reading."  read more
