Edward Weston Nudes: Aperture
Edward Weston
0893815322
April 1993
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Lee Friedlander's photographs of women in their birthday suits leave me cold, but they invite comparison with Edward Weston's classic black and white nudes. Bare breasts and buttocks took on another dimension when Weston was behind the camera; his headless torsos more closely resemble the work of painters and sculptors than the passionless images of ladies decapitated by Friedlander and other contemporary photographers. Charis Wilson's memoir of posing for (and living with) Weston--and her under-the-skin take on the thought process behind his nude studies--is fascinating.

Review
"To Weston's eye . . . the landscape of the human body was an unending revelation of forms both voluptuous and abstract. His genius as an artist lay in his ability to respond to both with equal...

New Bach Flower Therapies: Healing the Emotional and Spiritual Causes of Illness
Dietmar Kramer
0892815299
February 1995
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Dietmar Kramer, a practicing naturopath, has discovered a new approach to diagnosis and treatment with Bach Flower Remedies. New Bach Flower Therapies traces the relationships between the thirty-eight flowers in an unprecedented way. "Outer" flowers treat acute, more superficial problems, while "inner" flowers address the deep-rooted conflicts that are the source of surface symptoms. Kramer arranges the inner and outer flowers into twelve "tracks," which can be used as models for therapeutic sequences. By illustrating each track with characteristic case studies, the author shows how varying motives and causes can lead to the same symptom, yet require individualized treatment.

Kramer's work is among the few new therapeutic applications to build upon Edward Bach's work of sixty...



Sandman
Neil Gaiman
0380817705
January 2002
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Though he won the World Fantasy Award for Short Fiction in 1991, Gaiman is best known as the writer who transformed the WWII-era DC Comics character the Sandman from a Batman-style detective/vigilante into the much darker Morpheus, aka Dream, the being who presides over the realm of Dreaming. One of seven siblings who represent various states of consciousness?Destiny, Death, Destruction, Desire, Despair, Dream and Delirium?Morpheus is head of the allegorical family called the Endless. Here, popular fantasy writers expand upon Gaiman's original concepts, with mixed results. Colin Greenland's bittersweet "Masquerade and High Water" and Barbara Hambly's "Each Damp Thing" provide insights into the backstage workings of the Endless. Tad Williams's "The Writer's Child" is a finely crafted story about loyalty and the...


Comical Co-Stars of Television: From Ed Norton to Kramer
Robert Pegg
0786413417
October 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Although some scholars credit Shakespeare with creating in Henry IV’s Falstaff the first "second banana" character (reviving him for Henry IV Part Two), most television historians agree that the popular co-star was born in 1955 when Art Carney, as Ed Norton, first addressed Jackie Gleason with a "Hey, Ralphie-boy," on The Honeymooners. The phenomenon has proved to be one of the most enduring achievements of the American sitcom, and oftentimes so popular that the co-star becomes the star. Twenty-nine of those popular co-stars get all of the attention in this work. Each chapter focuses on one television character and the actor or actress who brought him or her to life, and provides critical analysis, biographical information and, in several instances, interviews with the actors and actresses themselves. It...


Crow: Shattered Lives and Broken Dreams
James O'Barr (Editor)
0345417127
October 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The Crow, a dark character created by James O'Barr, "warps together two of man's strongest emotions and desires--love and revenge," writes Ed Kramer in the preface to this anthology of theme stories and art. A black, nightmarish spirit with a harlequin mouth, the Crow was born to avenge the brutal slaying of his beloved. Incarnations of the Crow stalk time and space, bringing ruthless and horrible justice to rapists and murderers.

O'Barr and Kramer asked an incredible array of fantastic fiction writers to interpret this Goth phenomenon--from A.A. Attanasio to Gene Wolfe, Alan Dean Foster, Charles de Lint, Jack Dann, and Jane Yolen. Shattered Lives & Broken Dreams delivers chilling, graphic tales of mystic revenge, from some of the best modern fantasy authors. Poetry (from Henry Rollins and Iggy Pop, among others) and...
