  • After Images

    By Amy Arbus

    • Publisher: Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.
    • Published: April 2013
    An "after image" is an impression of a vivid image retained by the eye after the stimulus has ceased. For her fifth book of portraits, Amy Arbus has borrowed ideas from iconic modernist paintings by artists including Picasso, Cezanne, Munch, Schiele, and Modigliani, and transferred their visceral energy and psychological intensity to live staged scenes to be photographed. In order to replicate the powerful effects of the original paintings, she painted costumes, props, and the models themselves. What has materialized is a series of hybrid images that challenges the thin line between painting and art photography. Chiaroscuro lighting and lush colors produce dark trompe l'oeil portraits in which the live models appear to be trying to escape the confines of the two-dimensional world that holds them captive.

  • All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation

    • Published: March 2016
    "In a provocative, groundbreaking work, National Magazine Award­-finalist Rebecca Traister, "the most brilliant voice on feminism in this country" (Anne Lamott), traces the history of unmarried women in America who, through social, political, and economic means, have radically shaped our nation. For legions of women, living single isn't news; it's life. In 2009, the award-winning journalist Rebecca Traister started All the Single Ladies--a book she thought would be a work of contemporary journalism--about the twenty-first century phenomenon of the American single woman. It was the year the proportion of American women who were married dropped below fifty percent; and the median age of first marriages, which had remained between twenty and twenty-two years old for nearly a century (1890-1980), had risen dramatically to twenty-seven. But over the course of her vast research and more than a hundred interviews with academics and social scientists and prominent single women, Traister discovered a startling truth: the phenomenon of the single woman in America is not a new one. And historically, when women were given options beyond early heterosexual marriage, the results were massive social change--temperance, abolition, secondary education, and more.Today, only twenty percent of Americans are wed by age twenty-nine, compared to nearly sixty percent in 1960. The Population Reference Bureau calls it a "dramatic reversal." All the Single Ladies is a remarkable portrait of contemporary American life andhow we got here, through the lens of the single American woman. Covering class, race, sexual orientation, and filled with vivid anecdotes from fascinating contemporary and historical figures, All the Single Ladies is destined to be a classic work of social history and journalism. Exhaustively researched, brilliantly balanced, and told with Traister's signature wit and insight, this book should be shelved alongside Gail Collins's When Everything Changed"--

    • Published: May 2015
    "Lisa Garr wants you to stop going through the motions in life. She wants you to become aware. Her mission on her internationally syndicated radio program, The Aware Show, and now in her first book, is to inspire positive growth in all areas of life and to bring conscious conversations into everyone's living room. "My goal is to live each and every day in a conscious way. Even the tough times can have moments of awareness, as long as you stay committed to what's real," she says. Lisa's own story is remarkable. Several years ago, a traumatic brain injury rendered the LA businesswoman unable to speak or rely on her short-term memory. She not only used cutting-edge EEG techniques to heal, but also set out to live a different life than what she was leading in her pre-accident days. Lisa also used this moment as a life wake-up call and decided to transform in every way possible including marrying her true love and giving birth to their daughter. She started The Aware Show to bring soul-stirring information to the masses. The woman who couldn't even say a few words is now a radio and Internet sensation with a massively growing audience and huge platform. Here Lisa brings the lessons she has learned on her show from countless interviews with inspirational, spiritual, and New Thought leaders to the pages of her own book. She takes the best of these lessons and discusses how she applies them to her own life, and explains how readers can, too. Lisa knows how to use your will to create what you want on multiple levels. She even knows how to harness energy and use your own maximum wattage to get where you want to go in life. Of course, she knows that life offers several U-turns, too, and she will explain how to get back on track when the road beneath you seems to have crumbled--or when life seems to hit you on the head. Lisa's book will deal with deeply personal topics including defining your own happiness, choosing to love someone else, and conscious parenting. She also includes "Awareisms" throughout the book: "quick hit" life lessons that will in a matter of moments change the way you think and live. Isn't it time to become aware?"--

  • Coup de Foudre

    By Ken Kalfus

    Our Price: $12.95
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9781620400852
    • Publisher: Bloomsbury USA
    • Published: May 2015
    "The explosive new collection by the celebrated author of Thirst and PEN/Faulkner Award finalist Pu-239 and Other Russian Fantasies, Coup de Foudre is the kind of groundbreaking work of literary invention Ken Kalfus's fans have come to expect. The book is anchored by the full text of the provocatively topical title novella that appeared in Harper's, a sometimes farcical, ultimately tragic story about the president of an international lending institution accused of sexually assaulting a housekeeper in a New York hotel. Recalling the Dominique Strauss-Kahn affair with irony and compassion, Kalfus skewers international political gridlock and the hypocrisies of acceptable sexual conduct. In "The Moment They Were Waiting For," a murderer on death row casts a spell granting the inhabitants of his city the foreknowledge of the dates they will die. In "v. The Large Hadron Collider," a judge distracted by the faint possibility of an adulterous affair must decide whether to throw out a nuisance lawsuit that raisesthe even fainter possibility that the entire Earth may be destroyed. "The Un" is a nostalgic story of a young writer's struggles as he tries to surmount the colossal, heavily guarded wall that apparently separates writers who have been published from those who have not. Varying boldly in theme, setting, and tone, the stories in Coup de Foudre share Kalfus's distinctive humor and intellect, inextricably bound with high literary ambition"--
