Heartfelt, caustic, and unapologetically profane, Preacher follows the epic journey of the Reverend Jesse Custer as he tracks down a fugitive God to make him answer for the sufferings of His own creation. From the mansions of San Francisco to the foothills of the Alps to the sawdust-strewn bars of New York City, Jesse and his friends cut a righteous path across a fallen world and through the soul of America in their quest for the divine - an effort which will be met by every evil that Heaven and Earth can assemble.

London ; Verso, 2015
Preface / by Lucha Castro -- A letter to my mother / by Luis Jesús Castro -- Prologue -- Lucha and Gabino -- Alma -- Marisela -- Norma -- Emilia -- Josefina -- Epilogue -- About Lucha Castro -- About Front Line Defenders -- About the creators.

"The Mexican border state of Chihuahua and its city Juárez have become notorious the world over as hotbeds of violence. Drug cartel battles and official corruption result in more murders annually in Chihuahua than in wartorn Afghanistan. Thanks to a culture of impunity, 97 percent of the killings in Juárez go unsolved. Despite a climate of fear, a small group of human rights activists, exemplified by the Chihuahua lawyer and organizer Lucha Castro, works to identify the killers and their official enablers. This is the story of La Lucha, illustrated in beautiful and chilling comic book art, rendering in rich detail the stories of families ripped apart by disappearances and murders--especially gender-based violence--and the remarkably brave advocacy, protests, and investigations of ordinary citizens who turned their grief into resistance"--Back cover.

Eames & Hollywood : selection from the movie sets collection
Midal, Alexandra
Bruxelles : CFC-Editions, c2016
239 unknown and unpublished photographs taken by Charles Eames over the years on Billy Wilder's films settings are exhibited at ADAM for the first time ever. The audience will discover the magic behind the scene, and what means the industry of cinema. Additionally, the cinephile will also discover Wilder's film sets and play in recognizing, here, a set of Sabrina (1954), or there, the outdoor locations of A Ace in the Hole (1951). 0Designers Charles and Ray Eames always practiced photography, a facet of their work less well known than their exceptional furniture (still in production) and architecture in Santa-Monica (Cal.). But, their photographic opera, amounting to more than 750,000 images, projected on screens as media installation, far from having a merely documentary value, represent an exceptional work of art that demands to be re-discovered. Among the numerous series of photography they realized, one series entitled Movie-Sets forges the exhibition Eames & Hollywood. The series taken by Charles Eames is entirely dedicated to the film sets and the natural settings chosen by his friend, the world acclaimed film director Billy Wilder, for his own movies. Armed with his trusty camera, Charles was continuously taking photographs of very high pictorial quality. 00Exhibition: Art and Design Atomium Museum (ADAM), Brussels, Belgium (10.0.3-04.09.2016).

Outrageously hedonistic 'rockopera' casts contemporary rock god Roger Daltrey as the world's first music superstar, Franz Liszt.

"Modern society is obsessed with outward beauty. What if there was a way to guarantee you could become more and more beautiful every day? What if it was a sexually transmitted disease?

Not Pretty Enough : the Unlikely Triumph of Helen Gurley Brown
Hirshey, Gerri, author
New York : Sarah Crichton Books, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016
The trouble with Helen -- That woman -- Arkansas -- Los Angeles -- New York -- "Take me to the Ozarks."

"Brown's life story-- a classic American rags-to-riches tale-- is just as juicy as her controversial books. In this...biography, the writer and reporter Gerri Hirshey traces Brown's path from deep in the Arkansas Ozarks to her wild single years in Los Angeles, from the New York magazine world to her Hollywood adventures with her film producer husband. Along the way she became the highest-paid female ad copywriter on the West Coast, and transformed Hearst's failing literary magazine, Cosmopolitan, into the female-oriented global juggernaut it is today."--

The authentic death & contentious afterlife of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid : the untold story of Peckinpah's last Western film
Seydor, Paul, 1947- author
Evanston, Illinois : Northwestern University Press, 2015
Long before Sam Peckinpah finished shooting his 1973 Western, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, there was open warfare between him and the studio. In this scrupulously researched new book Paul Seydor reconstructs the riveting history of a brilliant director fighting to preserve an artistic vision while wrestling with his own self-destructive demons. Meticulously comparing the film five extant versions, Seydor documents why none is definitive, including the 2005 Special Edition, for which he served as consultant. Viewing Peckinpah's last Western from a variety of fresh perspectives, Seydor establishes a nearly direct line from the book Garrett wrote after he killed Billy the Kid to Peckinpah's film ninety-one years later and shows how, even with directors as singular as this one, filmmaking is a collaborative medium. Art, business, history, genius, and ego all collide in this story of a great director navigating the treacherous waters of collaboration, compromise, and commerce to create a flawed but enduringly powerful masterpiece.

The forest and the field : changing theatre in a changing world
Goode, Chris, author
London : Oberon Books, 2015
Space and place -- The naked and the nude -- Signal and noise -- The forest and the field -- Coda: Changing the world.

A polemical examination of the concept of theater as a 'space', and a politically motivated exploration of theater's relationship to reality. Chris Goode's timely and provocative book explores questions of space and bodies in theater, examines how meaning is created between performers and audiences, and interrogates the wider relationship between theater and the 'outside world'.

Identity politics in George Lucas' Star Wars

"Man your ships, and may the force be with you": Star wars and mythically sanitized violence -- "Wars not make one great": redeeming the Star wars -- Mythos from the myth of redemptive violence -- "There'll be no escape for the princess this time": re-gendering the patriarchal Sstar wars texts -- "We don't serve their kind here!" Star wars and the politics of difference.

"George Lucas spoke about the didactic role of cinema and about his own work being presented through the "moral megaphone" of the film industry. A considerable body of scholarship on the six-part Star Wars series argues (unconvincingly) that the franchise promoted neo-conservatism in American culture from the late 1970s onward"--

Inclusion in new Danish cinema : sexuality and transnational belonging
Shriver-Rice, Meryl, author
Bristol, UK ; Intellect, 2015
"Often recognized as one of the happiest countries in the world, Denmark, like its Scandinavian neighbours, is known for its progressive culture, which is also reflected in its national cinema. It is not surprising, then, that Danish film boasts as many successful women film directors as men, uses scripts that are often co-written by both the director and the screenwriter, and produces among the highest numbers of queer films directed by and starring women. Despite all this, Danish film is not widely written about, especially in English. Inclusion in New Danish Cinema brings this vibrant culture to English-language audiences. Meryl Shriver-Rice argues that Denmark has demonstrated that film can reinforce cultural ethics and political values while also navigating the ongoing and mounting forces of digital communication and globalization"--From publisher.

Adult contemporary
Kaltenborn, Bendik, 1980-
[Montreal] : Drawn & Quarterly, 2015
Look through Bendik Kaltenborn's kaledescopic glasses and glimpse the world the way he sees it: a vibrantly colorful planet populated by lumpy, big-nosed people totally absorbed in their own off-kilter personal dramas. Adult Contemporary is a collection of odd imaginings, surrealist comics, and physical comedy gags from Kaltenborn, a New Yorker and New York Times illustrator. People scramble around in a world they don't understand, happy as can be. An author finds unexpected and lethal love in his own garden. A marriage is threatened by soup. Drunk old men quarrel about literature in the witching hour. A con details a small and silly bank robbery from the 1980s. CEOs do push-ups.

Motifs merveilleux et poétique des genres au Moyen Âge
sous la direction de Francis Gingras
Paris : Classiques Garnier, 2015
"Cet ouvrage réunit des contributions sur l'actualisation des motifs merveilleux dans la littérature médiévale qui mesurent les infléchissements induits par l'étiquette générique d'un texte. Les auteurs abordent aussi bien des cas qui permettent d'identifier certains motifs à certains genres que d'autres où la porosité des frontières génériques conduit à un usage indifférencié de la topique, indépendamment de la récurrence évidente de certains motifs dans des traditions particulières, hagiographique, épique, romanesque ou même scientifique, toutes abordées dans ce livre. Au terme du parcours, ces études permettent de voir comment l'écriture du merveilleux contribue à la nouvelle typologie des formes narratives qui se met en place avec le développement d'une littérature "en roman"."--Page 4 of cover.

When movies were theater : architecture, exhibition, and the evolution of American film
Paul, William, 1944- author
New York : Columbia University Press, [2016]
Introduction: an art of the theater -- Making movies fit -- Store theaters: a radical break -- Palatial architecture, democratized audience -- Elite taste in a mass medium -- Uncanny theater -- The architectural screen -- Conclusion: Ontological fade-out -- Appendix 1: Stage shows and double features in select markets outside New York City -- Appendix 2: Feature films based on theatrical sources, 1914-2011 -- Abbreviations used for citations in notes.

There was a time when seeing a movie meant more than seeing a film. The theater itself shaped the very perception of events onscreen. This multilayered history tells the story of American film through the evolution of theater architecture and the surprisingly varied ways movies were shown, ranging from Edison's 1896 projections to the 1968 Cinerama premiere of Stanley Kubrick's '2001'. The study matches distinct architectural forms to movie styles, showing how cinema's roots in theater influenced business practices, exhibition strategies, and film technologies.

His shy, uncertain heroes face broken hearts, changing families, money troubles, sexual anxiety, and the pressures of tradition, but with a whimsy and lightness of touch that is Matsumoto's trademark." -- Back cover.

"From the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author of Backlash, comes In the Darkroom, an astonishing confrontation with the enigma of her father and the larger riddle of identity consuming our age. 'In the summer of 2004 I set out to investigate someone I scarcely knew, my father. The project began with a grievance, the grievance of a daughter whose parent had absconded from her life. I was in pursuit of a scofflaw, an artful dodger who had skipped out on so many things -- obligation, affection, culpability, contrition. I was preparing an indictment, amassing discovery for a trial. But somewhere along the line, the prosecutor became a witness.' So begins Susan Faludi's extraordinary inquiry into the meaning of identity in the modern world and in her own haunted family saga. When the feminist writer learned that her 76-year-old father -- long estranged and living in Hungary -- had undergone sex reassignment surgery, that investigation would turn personal and urgent. How was this new parent who claimed to be 'a complete woman now' connected to the silent, explosive, and ultimately violent father she had known, the photographer who'd built his career on the alteration of images? Faludi chases that mystery into the recesses of her suburban childhood and her father's many previous incarnations: American dad, Alpine mountaineer, swashbuckling adventurer in the Amazon outback, Jewish fugitive in Holocaust Budapest. When the author travels to Hungary to reunite with her father, she drops into a labyrinth of dark histories and dangerous politics in a country hell-bent on repressing its past and constructing a fanciful -- and virulent -- nationhood. The search for identity that has transfixed our century was proving as treacherous for nations as for individuals. Faludi's struggle to come to grips with her father's reinvented self takes her across borders -- historical, political, religious, sexual -- to bring her face to face with the question of the age: Is identity something you 'choose, ' or is it the very thing you can't escape?

Ecriture de soi et autorité
sous la direction deJean-Pierre Castellani
Tours : Presses universitaires François Rabelais, 2016
"Nombreux sont ceux qui ont essayé de comprendre, d'analyser et de mesurer les stratégies de l'écriture de "soi", cette irrépressible tentation chez l'être humain de donner un corps à sa voix et de se raconter à un autre. La question des modalités de l'énonciation dans le discours autobiographique renvoie à celle, fondamentale, de l'expression libre ou non de ce discours. À ce moment, le point de vue exclusif du "moi" se complique par la présence active, et peut être espérée secrètement par celui qui écrit, d'un autre "moi", celui du lecteur. Les contributions présentées dans ce volume, toutes inédites, interrogent la notion polysémique et interdisciplinaire d'autorité. Elles portent aussi bien sur des ouvrages rédigés en langue française qu'espagnole, à des époques et dans des circonstances très variées. Elles offrent un éclairage nouveau sur l'écriture de "soi" trop souvent réduite à une simple confession complaisante ou narcissiste. Par des réflexions qui touchent des domaines à la fois politiques, historiques, autobiographiques, linguistiques ou épistolaires, cet ouvrage cherche à dépasser la stratégie d'ambiguïté qui est inhérente à ces discours."--Page 4 of cover.

The multisensory film experience : a cognitive model of experiental film aesthetics
Antunes, Luis Rocha, author
Bristol : Intellect Ltd, 2016
When the lights dim in a movie theater and the projector begins to click and whir, the light and sounds of the motion picture become the gateway to a multisensory experience. Moving beyond the oft-discussed perceptual elements of vision and hearing, "The multisensory film experience" analyzes temperature, pain, and balance in order to argue that it is the "experience" of film that is inherently multisensory, not the medium. Luis Rocha Antunes here explores the work of filmmakers Erik Jensen, Gus Van Sant, and Ki-Duk Kim to offer new insights into how viewers experience films and understand their stories.

Now Klein offers a funny yet poignant take on a variety of experiences along her strange journey to womanhood and beyond. These include her "transformation from Pippi Longstocking-esque tomboy to are-you-a-lesbian-or-what tom man," attempting to find watchable porn, and identifying the difference between being called "ma'am" and "miss" ("Miss sounds like you weigh ninety-nine pounds").

Preface -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction: The Graphic Turn in Indian Writing in English -- 1. Graphic History -- 2. Urban Graphic -- 3. Cultural Graphics -- 4. Drawing (On) Other Histories -- 5. Graphic Satire Conclusion: The Graphic Narrative and Critical Literacy Bibliography -- Index.

This book is a detailed study of the Indian graphic novel as a significant category of South Asian literature. It focuses on the genre's engagement with history, memory and cultural identity and its critique of the nation in the form of dissident histories and satire. Deploying a nuanced theoretical framework, the volume closely examines major texts such as The Harappa Files, Delhi Calm, Kari, Bhimayana, Gardener in the Wasteland, Pao Anthology, and authors and illustrators including Sarnath Banerjee, Vishwajyoti Ghosh, Durgabai Vyam, Amrutha Patil, Srividya Natarajan and others. It also explores - using key illustrations from the texts - critical themes like contested and alternate histories, urban realities, social exclusion, contemporary politics, and identity politics. A major intervention in Indian writing in English, this volume will be of great importance to scholars and researchers of South Asian literature, cultural studies, art and visual culture, and sociology.

Exhilarating prose : cognitions, contemplations, insights, introspections, lucubrations, meditations, musings, prognostications, reflections, reveries & ruminations on the process of writing
Healey, Barry, author,
Montréal : Baraka Books, 2015
This smartly illustrated literary miscellanea is intended to stimulate readers and writers of English prose. From dead language - the speaks (i.e., ad-speak, media-speak, corporate-speak) through re-writing - Again? to rules (to obey or not to obey), authors Barry Healey and Cordelia Strube examine what makes good and bad writing. With tongue often in cheek, they scrutinize various forms of prose and the seven major prose elements, and reflect on how to approach the writing process most effectively. Exhilarating Prose also abounds with examples of startling writing, wide-ranging quotes from celebrated authors, and their own ruminations on the oddities of writing and the infinite eccentricity of the human mind. To those interested in English words in their best order (Coleridge), this book will inform, engage, and amuse.

Studios before the system : architecture, technology, and the emergence of cinematic space
Jacobson, Brian R., author
New York : Columbia University Press, [2015]
Introduction: studios and systems -- Black boxes and open-air stages: film studio technology and environmental control from the laboratory to the rooftop -- Georges Méliès's "glass house": cineplasticity for a human-built world -- Dark studios and daylight factories: building cinema in New York City -- Studio factories and studio cities: Paris's cités du cinéma and the inconsistency of modernity -- The studio beyond the studio: nature, technology, and location in Southern California -- Conclusion: more than "dream factories".

"Focusing on six significant early film corporations in the United States and France--the Edison Manufacturing Company, American Mutoscope and Biograph, American Vitagraph, Georges Méliès's Star Films, Gaumont, and Pathé Frères--as well as smaller producers and film companies, Studios Before the System describes how filmmakers first envisioned the space they needed and then sourced modern materials to create novel film worlds. Artificially reproducing the natural environment, film studios helped usher in the world's Second Industrial Revolution and what Lewis Mumford would later call the "specific art of the machine." From housing workshops for set, prop, and costume design to dressing rooms and writing departments, studio architecture was always present though rarely visible to the average spectator in the twentieth century, providing the scaffolding under which culture, film aesthetics, and our relation to lived space took shape."--Cover.

Tabloid century : the popular press in Britain, 1896 to the present
Bingham, Adrian, author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Peter Lang, 2015
Popular newspapers played a vital role in shaping British politics, society and culture in the twentieth century. This book provides a concise and accessible historical overview of the rise of the tabloid format and examines how the national press reported the major stories of the period, from World Wars and general elections to sex scandals and celebrity gossip. It considers the appeal and influence of the most successful titles, such as the Daily Mail, the Daily Mirror, the Daily Express and the Sun, and explores the emergence of the key elements of the modern popular newspaper, such as editorial campaigns, women's pages, advice columns, and pin-ups. Using a wealth of examples from across the century, the authors explain how tabloids provided an important forum for the discussion of social identities such as class, gender, sexuality and ethnicity, and how they scrutinised public figures with increasing intensity. In the wake of recent controversies about tabloid practices, this timely book provides the historical context to enable a proper assessment of how the popular press helped to define twentieth-century Britain.

An edgy realism : film theoretical encounters with Dogma 95, new French extremity, and the shaky-cam horror film
Schaefer, Jerome P., author
Newcastle upon Tyne : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2015
"Similar to the way in which the new waves of the 1960s and 1970s had been characterized by new forms of cinematic realism, cinema since the turn of the millennium has pointed into the direction of a new, edgy realism. Art film movements such as Dogma 95 and the New French Extremity, as well as shaky-cam horror films like The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity, provide evidence of the fact that the proliferation of the digital since the 1990s has profoundly changed not only contemporary media culture and the social role of film, as seen, for example, in the case of amateur film and the phenomenon of mobile reporting and its distribution via YouTube and the like, but also notions of realism and authenticity. As modern film theory has struggled to keep pace with the developments of contemporary cinema, this book draws on actor-network theory and its material-semiotic mindset to allow a thorough understanding of the innovative character of cinema at the turn of the millennium. It is argued that the ongoing digitization has finally allowed cinema to return to a material-semiotic mode of perception; one side of this being the 'spectacle' of the blockbuster, while the other side might best be described as an edgy realism: the realism of 'material-semiotic relationality'"-- From publisher.

The gift of the gab : how eloquence works
Crystal, David, 1941- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2016]
"We all know eloquence when we hear it. But what exactly is it? And how might we gain more of it for ourselves? This entertaining and, yes, eloquent book illuminates the power of language from a linguistic point of view and provides fascinating insights into the way we use words. David Crystal, a world-renowned expert on the history and usage of the English language, probes the intricate workings of eloquence. His lively analysis encompasses everyday situations (wedding speeches, business presentations, storytelling) as well as the oratory of great public gatherings. Crystal focuses on the here and now of eloquent speaking--from pitch, pace, and prosody to jokes, appropriateness, and how to wield a microphone. He explains what is going on moment by moment and examines each facet of eloquence. He also investigates topics such as the way current technologies help or hinder our verbal powers, the psychological effects of verbal excellence, and why certain places or peoples are thought to be more eloquent than others. In the core analysis of the book, Crystal offers an extended and close dissection of Barack Obama's electrifying "Yes we can" speech of 2008, in which the president demonstrated full mastery of virtually every element of eloquence--from the simple use of parallelism and an awareness of what not to say, to his brilliant conclusion constructed around two powerful words: dreams and answers"--

Indeh : a story of the Apache wars
Hawke, Ethan, 1970- author
New York : Grand Central Publishing, 2016
Part one. A blessing and a curse -- Part two. Locusts -- Part three. A three-headed god.

The year is 1872. The place, the Apache nations, a region torn apart by decades of war. The people, like Goyahkla, lose his family and everything he loves. After having a vision, the young Goyahkla approaches the Apache leader Cochise, and the entire Apache nation, to lead an attack against the Mexican village of Azripe. It is this wild display of courage that transforms the young brave Goyakhla into the Native American hero Geronimo. But the war wages on. As they battle their enemies, lose loved ones, and desperately cling on to their land and culture, they would utter, "Indeh," or "the dead." When it looks like lasting peace has been reached, it seems like the war is over. Or is it? INDEH captures the deeply rich narrative of two nations at war--as told through the eyes of Naiches and Geronimo--who then try to find peace and forgiveness. INDEH not only paints a picture of some of the most magnificent characters in the history of our country, but it also reveals the spiritual and emotional cost of the Apache Wars. Based on exhaustive research, INDEH offers a remarkable glimpse into the raw themes of cultural differences, the horrors of war, the search for peace, and, ultimately, retribution. The Apache left an indelible mark on our perceptions about the American West, and INDEH shows us why.
