Ngai mobilizes the aesthetics of unprestigious negative affects such as irritation, envy, and disgust to investigate not only ideological and representational dilemmas in literature-with a particular focus on those inflected by gender and race-but also blind spots in contemporary literary and cultural criticism.
This is a story from the Andersen´s Fairy Tales collection. The world of Hans Christian Andersen is seen through the eyes of children. There is the everyday wonder of an ugly duckling being transformed into a swan; the puffed-up Emperor being fooled by his own importance; the tender tragedy of a little match girl; the upright honesty of John rewarded by his traveling companion. By bringing true feelings to these stories, Andersen´s tales have become part of universal folklore. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Erica Johns.

Ugly people don´t have feelings. They´re not like everyone else. They don´t notice if you stare at them and turn away. And if they did notice, it wouldn´t hurt them. They´re not like real people. Or that´s what I used to think. Before I learned... After the car crash that leaves her best friend dead, Jenna is permanently scarred. She struggles to rebuild her life, but every stare in the street, every time she looks in the mirror, makes her want to retreat further from the world. Until she meets Ryan. Ryan´s a traveller. When he and his mother moor their narrow boat on the outskirts of a village, she tells him this time it will be different. He doesn´t believe her; he can´t imagine why this place shouldn´t be as unwelcoming as the rest. Until he meets Jenna. But as Jenna and Ryan grow closer, repercussions from the crash continue to reverberate through the community. And then a body is found. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Coleman.
