Summary

La historia de la música, de la literatura, del teatro, de la danza y de la pintura, refleja un interés por el humor. Desde los griegos, la tragedia y la comedia eran dos caras de una misma moneda que reflejaba el mundo psíquico del ser humano.
Lo mismo se puede decir de la literatura, con obras tan magníficas como el Quijote, en la que a través de la sátira se pone en entredicho el valor de los libros y, en este sentido, del conocimiento mismo; o ese  Cándido de Voltaire, en el que la crítica a la filosofía se mezcla con el más fino humor negro y una particular actitud  pedagógica...
La lista es extensa. En este tercer volumen de la serie  Humor: aproximaciones transdisciplinares, editada por Ediciones UCC, se reflejan estos vínculos tan estrechos, desde el análisis de las puestas escénicas exageradas de los payasos, hasta el análisis de obras literarias  universales y regionales.
También este volumen recoge un tema fundamental: la educación. ¿Puede el humor facilitar los procesos de enseñanza? ¿Es posible que funcione como un facilitador para la enseñanza de una segunda lengua o de otros procesos de aprendizaje escolar?¿De qué manera los actos humorísticos evidencian los rasgos más importantes de una cultura  y ayuda a transmitirlos de una generación a otra?
El lector encontrará una variedad de temas  que combinan, la cultura, la educación, el arte y el humor desde una óptica científica.

    A housewife revels in the secret world of her mind filled with historical characters and twisted love stories in this inventive sendup of Southern fiction. Mrs. Hollingsworth sits at her kitchen table, compiling her grocery list. The subject of the list is not foodstuffs, but memories that never happened, inventions of loves, and strange conspiracies peopled by men who appear in the lonely housewife’s head—men infinitely more real to her than her own husband.   Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest gallops into her story, courtesy of media giant Ted Turner and two shady criminal types named Bundy and Oswald who are engaged in a secret experiment to create “the New Southerner.”   Her prying daughters believe Mrs. Hollingsworth is losing her mind. But in truth, their mother is simply looking for love via hand-to-hand combat on the surreal battlefield inside her head.   Originally published as Mrs. Hollingsworth’s Men, Padgett Powell’s Hologram is a stunning literary achievement. Strikingly unique, it is a poignant, funny, and unconventional fever dream brought to lyrical life.

    The New York Times bestseller that “chronicles the glittering lives of semicelebrities, social aspirants, and moneyed folk [with] withering precision” (The New York Times).  
     
    From the author of Sex and the City, this collection of novellas tells the stories of four women facing up to the limitations of their rapidly approaching middle age in an era that worships youth. From the former it-girl heroine of “Nice N’Easy,” who each summer looks for a rich man who’ll provide her with a house in the Hamptons, to the narrator of “Single Process,” who goes to London on a hunt for love and a good magazine story, Candace Bushnell brings to life contemporary women in search of something more—when the world is pushing for them to settle for less. Sexy, funny, and “mercilessly satirical” (Publishers Weekly), Four Blondes is a knowing look at what lurks beneath our obsessions with sex, celebrity, and social status.

    Warning: Explicit Content. My Juliet--Examined Right There on the Beach: A Shy, Shivering Wife, Her Controlling Husband, and His Medically Unqualified Dad. A Story of Appalling Humiliation. Derek Vernon is just trying to relax and enjoy a pleasant day at the beach, along with his wife Juliet and his parents. And, given how smokin’ hot Juliet looks in her bikini, it promises to be a very pleasant day, indeed! Until his sweetie comes running out of the water in a panic. Something has gotten onto that fantastic body of hers—something that stings and itches badly.Not to worry. Derek’s dad works in the medical field. He’ll handle everything.Not that this man is a doctor or anything close. He’s merely an x-ray technician. Still, he’s the best they have at the moment. But what Derek’s dad lacks in medical qualifications, he more than makes up for in sheer gall. He actually orders the shaking young woman to lie down on the beach blanket, where he proceeds to remove her swimsuit and examine her very carefully.Carefully, thoroughly, and very intimately—right there on a public beach with dozens of gawking bystanders. And Juliet is perhaps the last person on Earth to endure such humiliation. In fact, she has frustrated her husband to no end for years with her over-the-top body modesty and inhibited sexuality.So, although Derek should feel sorry for the ordeal his wife is being put through, all he feels is major arousal—not only from the spectacle of her gorgeous nude body, but from Juliet’s gorgeous look of reluctance and embarrassment…and, strangely, from the jealousy he feels seeing his dad being granted more viewing and feeling rights than he ever had!And this jealousy is made even worse when a young lifeguard comes over and checks Juliet over just as intimately—explaining that she has a case of sea lice, which he treats by dabbing her with medicine very nearly everywhere.By now, Derek is seething in envy and arousal. Thank God his shaken wife just wants to go home because this hugely horny hubby has big plans for her—plans that will not only satisfy his envy-tinged arousal but teach her a thing or two about the joys of giving her husband what he’s always wanted—and more!Fans of ENF erotica featuring beautiful and very nervous women who find themselves in the most embarrassing, debasing, humiliating situations imaginable—this one is for you! Get your copy today and see how “uplifting” a day at the beach can be!This is Book #7 in J.C.'s latest series: "My Wife--Submissive at Last"--a collection of titillating tales featuring horny, hard-up, and harried husbands who find themselves in newfound positions of power and dominance over their demanding, controlling, and sexually conservative wives. It sure is fun to flip the balance of power back to the man for a change—especially when his woman is gorgeous, well-built, and submissive at last!

    These true tales of celebrity hijinks combine Hollywood history, movie-star mayhem, and a frothy mix of forty cocktail recipes. 
     
    From the frontier days of silent film to the wild auteur period of the 1970s, Mark Bailey has pillaged the vaults of Hollywood history and lore to dig up the true—often surprising and always outrageous—stories of our most beloved and boozy actors, directors, and screenwriters at their most soused. 
     
    Humphrey Bogart got himself arrested for protecting his drinking buddies, who happened to be a pair of stuffed pandas. Ava Gardner would water-ski to the set of Night of the Iguana holding a towline in one hand and a cocktail in the other. Bing Crosby’s ill-mannered antics earned him the nickname “Binge Crosby.” And sweet Mary Pickford stashed liquor in hydrogen peroxide bottles during Prohibition. 
     
    Bite-size biographies are followed by ribald anecdotes and memorable quotes. Films that notorious for their on-set imbibing, like Apocalypse Now, From Here to Eternity, and The Misfits, are featured alongside the legendary watering holes of the day. And if a star or establishment was known for a particular cocktail, the recipe is included. Edward Hemingway’s portraits complete this spirited look at America’s most iconic silver-screen legends.

    New York Times bestselling author Ali Wentworth offers a comedic look at family, friendship, and lessons learned during the Covid-19 pandemic in her new collection of laugh-out-loud comic vignettes. 
    Like many, Ali Wentworth spent the pandemic seesawing between highs, lows, and baking an unnecessary amount of chocolate cake. Between binging every tv show in existence to conquering TikTok to becoming a (semi) empty-nester, Ali experienced her share of turmoil (including an early case of Covid), but she also grew a little, learned a lot, and found comfort in some unexpected people and places. 
    In Ali’s Well That Ends Well, Wentworth turns her gimlet eye to the year no one saw coming. With her signature irreverent style, she shares the most hysterical, absurd, and sometimes trying episodes that her family endured during the terrible global pandemic. Thoroughly relatable, absolutely charming, and filled with moments both hilarious and poignant, this terrific collection once again showcases the comedic genius of a beloved star who is “the girlfriend you want to have a glass of wine with, the one who makes you laugh because she sees the funny and the absurd in everything" (Huffington Post).
