In Salman Rushdie "s novels images are invested with the power to manipulate the plotline, to stipulate actions from the characters, to have sway over them, seduce them, or even lead them astray. Salman Rushdie and Visual Culturesheds light on this largely unremarked " even if central " dimension of the work of a major contemporary writer. This collection brings together, for the first time and into a coherent whole, research on the extensive interplay between the visible and the readable in Rushdie "s fiction, from one of the earliest novels " Midnight "s Children(1981) " to his latest "The Enchantress of Florence (2008).

display_description For the fly fisher, creating images of a living insect from fur, feathers, or synthetic materials is an art and a passion requiring "imagination and skill, creativity and discipline, patience and vision," according to renowned fly tyer and author Steve Raymond. The fly patterns in Blue Upright are among those that have served Raymond most faithfully over the years, the favorite flies of a long angling life. Some flies, such as the Crazy Charlie, are widely known; others are relatively. Unknown outside of the Pacific Northwest. Included are some of his own patterns which he uses alone or shares with only a few close friends. Let him share some of his fly recipes and warm-hearted, crisply detailed fishing stories with you as he describes the Carey Special, Thompson's Delectable Chironomid, the Green Machine, and, of course, the Blue Upright, among others. All of Raymond's personal favorites evoke vivid memories of the landscapes and the anglers (and the fish) that have. Passed through his life, images guaranteed to appeal to both beginning and experienced fly tyers. As followers of the hobby will confirm, tying flies need not be an art of perfection when the only critics that matter are the fish. Book jacket.
