Описание: This is one of the most anticipated novels of this or any other year, from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours. Specimen Days is three linked visionary narratives about the relationship between man and machine. The first narrative, a ghost story set at the height of the Industrial Revolution, tells the story of man-eating machines. An ecstatic boy, barely embodied in the physical world, speaks in the voice of the great visionary poet Walt Whitman. He works at an oppressive factory connected to the making of a mysterious substance with some universal function and on which the worlds economy somehow depends. The slight boy can barely operate the massive machine which speaks to him in the voice of his devoured brother. A woman who was to have married the brother is now the object of obsessive interest by the boy. In a city in which all are mastered by the machine, the boy is convinced that the woman must be saved before she too is devoured. This grisly but ultimately transformative story establishes three main characters who will appear, re-incarnated, in the other two sections of this startling modern novel. The boy, the man and the woman are each in search of some sort of transcendence as is made manifest by the recurrence of the words of Whitman (It avails not, neither distance nor place... I am with you, and know how it is). In part two, a noir thriller set in the early years of our current century, the city is at threat from maniacal bombers, while the third and last part plays with the sci-fi genre, taking our characters centuries into the future. The man who was devoured by a machine in part one is now literally a machine - a robot who becomes fully human before our eyes. The woman is a refugee from another part of the universe, a warrior in her native land but a servant on this planet. The boy leaves the earth at the novels close in search of a new-found land. Specimen Days is a genre bending, haunting ode to life itself - a work of surpassing power and beauty by one of the most original and daring writers at work today.

Описание: Michael Cunningham’s luminous, compassionate new novel begins with a vision. It’s November 2004. Barrett Meeks, having lost love yet again, is walking through Central Park when he is suddenly and inexplicably inspired to look up at the sky, where he sees a pale, translucent light that seems to regard him in a distinctly godlike way. Although Barrett doesn’t believe in visions – or in god, for that matter – he can’t deny what he’s seen. At the same time, in the not-quite-gentrified Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, Beth, who’s engaged to Barrett’s older brother ,Tyler, is dying of colon cancer. Beth, Tyler, and Barrett have cobbled together a more or less happy home. Tyler, a struggling musician with a drug problem, is trying and failing to write a wedding song for his wife-to-be – something that will be not merely a sentimental ballad but an enduring expression of eternal love. Barrett, haunted by the light, turns unexpectedly to religion. Tyler grows increasingly convinced that only drugs can release his deepest creative powers. Beth tries to face mortality with as much courage and stoicism as she can summon. Cunningham follows the Meeks brothers as each turns down a decidedly different path in his search for transcendence. In subtle, lucid prose, he demonstrates a profound empathy for his conflicted characters and a singular understanding of what lies at the depth of the human soul. ‘The Snow Queen’, beautiful and heartbreaking, comic and tragic, proves once again that Cunningham is one of the great novelists of this generation.

Описание: When Catherine meets Michael in LA during a business trip, she doesn't appreciate the importance of their first encounter. From a brief affair a compulsion develops, one that will influence her life for many years to come as she finds herself inexplicably drawn back to him again and again. She reveals her story to Ruby, her travelling companion in India, as she struggles to make sense of a relationship that brought great passion but not necessarily love. Catherine's painfully honest account reveals the depth of her compulsion and the pressures that fuelled her dogged persistence, exposing her longing for stability and security. She has travelled far from home but she has to go much further to remove herself from Michael's prevailing influence. She maps the story of her longing and her addiction to him, using landmarks from their brusque conversations; shared memories of media soundbites; and the movements of the weather - showing how she became lost in the geography of desire which spans time and distance. This is a superbly powerful and erotically charged novel, charting a woman's journey through a damaging relationship from despair to hope.

Описание:

Peter and Rebecca Harris: mid-forties denizens of Manhattan's SoHo, nearing the apogee of committed careers in the arts--he a dealer, she an editor. With a spacious loft, a college-age daughter in Boston, and lively friends, they are admirable, enviable contemporary urbanites with every reason, it seems, to be happy. Then Rebecca's much younger look-alike brother, Ethan (known in thefamily as Mizzy, "the mistake"), shows up for a visit. A beautiful, beguiling twenty-three-year-old with a history of drug problems, Mizzy is wayward, at loose ends, looking for direction. And in his presence, Peter finds himself questioning his artists, their work, his career--the entire world he has so carefully constructed.
Like his legendary, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "The Hours," Michael Cunningham's masterly new novel is a heartbreaking look at the way we live now. Full of shocks and aftershocks, it makes us think and feel deeply about the uses and meaning of beauty and the place of love in our lives.

Описание: Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976) was a pioneer of twentieth-century photography, an artist whose work significantcontributed to the acceptance of the medium as an art form. She devoted her life to her craft and photographed continuously and passionately for over seventy years. Her images of the body explore the human form in great detail: eyes, ears, heads, hands, breasts, feet. Many of her images have become well-known and popular icons in the history of photography. This book presents an overview of Cunningham's figure studies dating from 1906 through to 1976, the year of her death. More than half the images had never been published before the hardcover edition of this book. Although the majority of the photographs date from the 1920s and 1930s, her later work in this genre continuted to be compelling and provocative. An illustrated essay discusses Cunningham's interest in the human form, influences on her work and comparable images by Cunningham's contemporaries. A chronology of Cunningham's life and a selected bibliography are also included.

Описание: As one of the greatest women photographers ofe century, Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976) photographed nature with a celebratory spirit while retaining a firm dedication to photographic technique. Her childhood fascination with the beauty and complexities of nature led her to photograph all kinds of plant life, from simple flower arrangements to elaborate compositions of exotic ferns and lilies. This collection of black-and-white botanical images spans 55 years of work and development. The images are accompanied by a biocritical essay by Richard Lorenz, noted photography curator and writer, placing Cunningham's work in the context of her contemporaries and colleagues: Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Johan Hagemeyer and many other premiere photographers of the botanical world. To complete the celebration of the plant world, the book includes technical notes on illustrated plant species, a chronology and a selected bibliography.
