H. Lawrence in two decades. Jeffrey Meyers' masterly work, with its new discoveries and insights, traces Lawrence's pilgrimage from his working-class childhood through his years of hard-won recognition to his death in France - after the scandalous publication of Lady Chatterley's Lover - at the age of forty-four. It describes his tempestuous marriage to Frieda von Richthofen and his intense friendships with Ford Madox Ford, Edward Garnett, Katherine Mansfield, John Middleton Murry, Lady Ottoline Morrell, and Aldous Huxley. It illuminates Lawrence's complex method of intermingling autobiography and fiction, and shows us the perfect congruence of the defiant artist and the courageous man. Jeffrey Meyers reveals for the first time the true circumstances of Lawrence's mother's death; his physical sterility; the reasons for the suppression of The Rainbow; his homosexual relationship with the Cornish farmer William Henry Hocking; and Ford Madox Ford's role in Lawrence's misfortunes during the First World War. His fresh insights into Lawrence's life are matched by his acutely probing interpretations of the works. (Klappentext). ISBN 9780333492475 - , ISBN: 0333492471

McEwan, Ian: First love, last rites. Deutscher Titel: Erste Liebe - letzte Riten. London: Vintage Verlag, . ISBN: 0099754819
Guter Zustand. "Nichts Überflüssiges belastet die strenge, dichte Prosa, und doch erinnert der assoziative Stil zuweilen an James Joyce." (Neue Zürcher Zeitung). "Eine tour de force an Präzision und Komik." (The Times Literary Supplement). "A talented and genuinely imaginative writer, McEwan's details often grow into strange, powerful images the ironies, throughout this impressive collection are tellingly weighted." -- Julian Barnes. "A brilliant performance There's an assured and terribly macabre depravity about Ian McEwan's short stories as if some of the characters from early Angus Wilson had been painted by Francis Bacon." -- Anthony Thwaite, Observer. "Ian McEwan writes to shock and succeeds -- All his stories have a feeling of impending evil -- It is a tour de force of concision, and funny, too, in a deadpan manner." -- TLS. "A brilliant performance -- There's an assured and terribly macabre depravity about Ian McEwan's short stories -- as if some of the characters from early Angus Wilson had been painted by Francis Bacon." -- Observer. "His writing is exact, tender, funny, voluptuous, disturbing." -- The Times. - First Love, Last Rites is a collection of short stories by Ian McEwan. It was first published in 1975 by Jonathan Cape and re-issued in 1997 by Vintage. Context: The collection is McEwan's first published work and was regarded by the author (along with his second collection of short stories, In Between the Sheets) as an opportunity to experiment and find his voice as a writer. In an interview with Christopher Ricks in 1979, McEwan commented, "They were a kind of laboratory for me. They allowed me to try out different things, to discover myself as a writer." As a piece of work that portrays McEwan, the writer, at his youngest, it is perhaps fitting that the dominant theme is that of adolescence, of the blurry and perilous divide between childhood and adulthood; in addition themes of sex, perversion, and the grotesque in its many forms feature throughout. Stories: The book is composed of eight short stories, with the title story coming seventh: "Homemade" "Solid Geometry" "Last Day of Summer" "Cocker at the Theatre" "Butterflies" "Conversation with a Cupboard Man" "First Love, Last Rites" "Disguises". ... Reception: McEwan's collection was well-received by critics. In the Dictionary of Literary Biography, John Fletcher explained, "Such writing would be merely sensational if it were not, like Kafka's, pointed, so accurate, so incapable indeed of being appalled. In contemporary writing one has to turn to French literature to encounter a similar contrast between the elegance of the language and the disturbing quality of the material; in writing in English McEwan is wholly unique." Critic Robert Towers described McEwan's England in The New York Review of Books as a "flat, rubble-strewn wasteland, populated by freaks and monsters, most of them articulate enough to tell their own stories with mesmerizing narrative power and an unfaltering instinct for the perfect, sickening detail"; Towers called the collection "possibly the most brilliantly perverse and sinister batch of short stories to come out of England since Angus Wilson's The Wrong Set." Film adaptations: The title story was adapted for a 1997 film of the same name. The film stars Natasha Gregson Wagner as Sissel and Giovanni Ribisi as Joey. It was directed by Jesse Peretz. "Butterflies" has been adapted twice for cinema. In 1988 by Wolfgang Becker under the German title Schmetterlinge and in 2005 by Max Jacoby under its original English title. "Solid Geometry" was also adapted by Channel 4 in 2002 into a short film of the same name. This adaptation was directed by Denis Lawson and stars Ewan McGregor as Phil and Ruth Millar as Maisie.

Clark, Larry: Los Angeles. 2003 - 2006. Volume 1. ; 1. Ed.
Luhring Augustine, New York/ Simon Lee, London. 2007. First edition, first printing. New, unread, mint; originally shrink-wrapped in publisher's plastic foil. Hardcover without jacket (as issued). 93 pages with 48 color illustrations, 12.5 x 11.75 inch. By the maker of two of the most important photobooks: Tulsa and Tennage Lust (Martin Parr, The Photobook, vol 1, page 260). The hero of this book - and photographer Larry Clark clearly does see him as heroic - is Jonathan Velasquez, a teenager Clark encountered at random who became his muse. Velasquez serves more as a vehicle, however, than a fully developed character. He is the "everyman" of disaffected teenagers. Clark followed him for three years, detailing with his camera the social interactions that make up the unique world of urban teenagers. This world exists almost completely beyond the consciousness of the adult world and, as a result, is less and less bound by its rules. In this untamed social environment, Clark finds an uninhibited passion for life. From the Publisher: "Los Angeles 2003-2006 reflects the artist's life-long interest in the subject of today's youth within a marginalized urban environment. In this particular body of work, we witness the physical transformation of Jonathan Velasquez throughout the period of his adolescent years. Jonathan, a teenager living in South Central Los Angeles whom the artist encountered by chance, inspired Clark to write and direct the film Wassup Rockers. In this obsessive four year photographic chronicle of Jonathan's life, we experience not so much the unfolding of a series of portraits but rather the weaving of the subject's personal life within the context of a particular social milieu common to so many of today's urban youth subcultures. Building upon Larry's previous photographic accomplishments beginning with 'Tulsa,' 'Teenage Lust,' '1992,' 'The Perfect Childhood,' 'Punk Picasso,' and in film with 'Kids,' 'Bully,' 'Ken Park' and 'Wassup Rockers' this series of photographs further probes with equal intensity and unabashed honesty the often subtle, often glaring changes that all youth, and in particular Jonathan, go through in their teenage years. The close-up shots, the full length frontal views, the groupings of Jonathan with his friends all combine to portray the vulnerability as well as the subjects' expressions of newfound individuality, vitality and independence of life style. The large scale pigment prints reflect a departure for Clark from the more spare and documentary sensibility that characterize his earlier work, and in so doing allow for a more tender and evocative exploration of his subject."***************Luhring Augustine, New York/ Simon Lee, London. 2007.
