Los Carpinteros from the Author: Gudrun Ankele. This monograph is a comprehensive survey of Los Carpinteros' work since 2003, their most critically acclaimed period. Since their first collaborations, which focused on the traditions of craftsmanship and the colonial architecture of Cuba, as well as the subversion of the craftsman and the artist, Los Carpinteros' installations, sculptures and watercolour paintings have explored the political potential of art. In their more recent works, they transform simple, everyday objects (such as beds, loudspeakers and coffee machines) in dreamlike and associative ways, cracking open the ambiguities of reality and producing moments of absurdity and humour.

In Cold Blood from the Author: Truman Capote. National Bestseller On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the crime, and there were almost no clues. As Truman Capote reconstructs the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers, he generates both mesmerizing suspense and astonishing empathy. In Cold Blood is a work that transcends its moment, yielding poignant insights into the nature of American violence.

Lady Chatterley S Lover from the Author: Lawrence, D. H.. Lady Chatterley's Lover is a novel by D. H. Lawrence. The narrative concerns Lady Chatterley, a young, middle-class married woman whose husband has been paralysed from the waist down after a grievous war injury. On top of the obvious physical problems this caused, he also emotionally neglected his wife, which caused a deep rift between the two. Eventually, this leads to Lady Chatterley’s having an affair with her lower-class gamekeeper, which brings to the foreground the major motifs of the play: class dominance, and the inability to live happily with the mind alone. A masterful piece of literature sure to appeal to the discerning reader, Lady Chatterley’s Lover is a worthy addition to any bookshelf and is not to be missed by fans or collectors of Lawrence's prolific work. This book was originally published in 1920, and we are proud to republish it here complete with a new prefatory biography of the author.

Spanish Vocabulary from the Author: David Brodsky. Unlike other vocabulary guides that require the rote memorization of literally thousands of words, this book starts from the premise that using the etymological connections between Spanish and English words—their common derivations from Latin, Greek, and other languages—is the most effective way to acquire and remember vocabulary. This approach is suitable for beginners as well as for advanced students. Teachers of the language will also find much material that can be used to help motivate their students to acquire, and retain, Spanish vocabulary. Spanish Vocabulary is divided into four parts and four annexes: Part I provides background material on the origins of Spanish and begins the process of presenting Spanish vocabulary. Part II presents "classical" Spanish vocabulary—words whose form (in both Spanish and English) is nearly unchanged from Latin and Greek. Part III deals with "popular" Spanish vocabulary, which underwent significant changes in form (and often meaning) during the evolution from Latin to Spanish. A number of linguistic patterns are identified that will help learners recognize and remember new vocabulary. Part IV treats a wide range of themes, including words of Germanic and Arabic origin, numbers, time, food and animals, the family, the body, and politics. Annex A: Principal exceptions to the "Simplified Gender Rule" Annex B: 700 words whose relations, if any, to English words are not immediately obvious Annex C: -cer verbs and related words Annex D: 4,500 additional words, either individually or in groups, with English correspondences

Blood On Paper from the Author: Elena Foster. At a time when the notion of the book is challenged by the advent of the screen and computer, Blood on Paper aims to show the extraordinary ways in which the book has been treated by leading artists of the past century. Focusing on new and contemporary work and on books where the artist has been the driving force in conception and design, this innovative book comprises a series of unbound booklets presented in a box. Almost all notable artists of the 20th and 21st centuries have produced books, or works that refer to books: those represented will include artists as diverse as Matisse, Picasso, David Hockney, Damien Hirst, Richard Long, Robert Motherwell and many others whose names are synonymous with art today.

The Invention Of Solitude from the Author: Paul Auster. 'One day there is life . . . And then, suddenly, it happens there is death.' So begins Paul Auster's moving and personal meditation on fatherhood, The Invention of Solitude. The first section, 'Portrait of an Invisible Man', reveals Auster's memories and feelings after the death of his father. In 'The Book of Memory' the perspective shifts to Auster's role as a father. The narrator, 'A.', contemplates his separation from his son, his dying grandfather and the solitary nature of writing and story-telling. With all the keen literary intelligence familiar from The New York Trilogy or Sunset Park, Paul Auster crafts an intensely intimate work from a ground-breaking combination of introspection, meditation and biography.
