WHEN LUCIE MONTGOMERY FINDS the body of prominent wine merchant Paul Noble hanging from a beam in his art studio not far from her Virginia vineyard, she is unwittingly dragged into Noble’s murky past. Once a member of the secretive Mandrake Society, Noble might have aided in a cover-up of the deaths forty years ago of a disabled man and a beautiful young biochemist involved in classified government research. A seemingly innocent favor for an old friend of her French grandfather sends Lucie to California, where she teams up with Quinn Santori, who walked out of Lucie’s life months earlier. Soon Lucie and Quinn are embroiled in a deadly cat-and-mouse game that takes them from glittering San Francisco to the legendary vineyards of Napa and Sonoma, and back home to Virginia, as they try to discover whether a killer may be seeking vengeance for the long-ago deaths. As Lucie and Quinn struggle to uncover the past, they must also decide whether they have a future together. Blending an intriguing mystery with an absorbing plot, vivid characters, and a richly evoked setting, The Sauvignon Secret should be savored like a glass of fine wine.

Jane Kelly is through following men. She left Southern California for the murky quaintness of Lake Chinook, Oregon, apparently so she could trade her bartending skills for much more glamorous work process serving. And the boyfriend, of course, is long gone. But things have been looking a little brighter lately. Her hobby doing PI work is kind of fun, especially when she lands a real case--that pays real money. But the case is about Bobby Reynolds, best friend of Tim Murphy, the only guy she's never gotten over. Everyone except Tim believed Bobby murdered his young family--isn't that why he vanished? Now Tim's coming home and Jane's on her way to talk to Bobby's father. Looks like Jane'll be trailing men after all--this time with a tape recorder and a camera. To top it off, she's being trailed by a homely pug named Binky, left to her by a distant relative. With a job she's learning as she goes along and her ex back in town, Jane's life just went from stress-free to completely stressed-out. And then there's the dead body. . . "Jane will win readers' hearts as she tries to sort out a crime, her love life, and the aspirations of a pug named Binky." --Carolyn Hart "Funny sex scenes, good drinks and a likable dog lift Bush's first Jane Kelly mystery." --Publishers Weekly

V devetdesetih letih so ameriške politike in obveščevalne analitike pogosto presenetili teroristični napadi, ki so povzročili smrt na tisoče ljudi doma in v tujini. Avtor podrobno analizira tovrstne teroristične incidente v obdobju od 1993. do 2001. leta, osvetljuje politične okoliščine in delovanje ustreznih varnostnih ter obveščevalnih služb, da bi laže razumeli in ocenili, v kolikšni meri sta k temu pripomogla presenečenje in neučinkovita obveščevalna dejavnost, ter poiskali odgovore na vprašanja, ali je šlo za politično ali obveščevalno napako in posledično neuspešnost, kakšna je bila narava grožnje in presenečenja, ali je bilo mogoče vse to predvideti in preprečiti pogubne posledice.

"Shame and Desire" defines the contemporary cinematic experience in terms that go beyond the visual. Adopting an intersubjective perspective on film studies, the author maintains that the dialectical poles of subject and object, seeing and being seen no longer seem to be valid. We are now surrounded by images that look back at us provocatively, seductively, indifferently; and not only in movies, but also in art, television, the city, in chance encounters, and in our private relationships. Taking her cue from Jean-Paul Sartre, the author shows how emotions exemplify the way in which we are 'forced' to see ourselves through the eyes of others, unable to escape an identity that is imposed upon us from the outside but nevertheless resides 'in the flesh' - in the affective operations of the body and the senses. To illustrate her account of the intersubjective dynamics and affective bonds of cinema, the author explores the contemporary aesthetic investment in the emotional in the work of filmmakers such as Lars von Trier, Michael Haneke and Eija-Liisa Ahtila. This book proposes an insight into the ways in which we are engaged with visual displays and the look with which they respond to our looking.

Jack Pierce, a down and out writer, has retreated from society to the sanctuary of the mountains above Leadville, Colorado. To his astonishment, an old lover, Miranda Talbot, a poet and faith healer from Texas, arrives at his house shortly after the death of his live-in girlfriend and proceeds to inspire him to write a biography about the recently deceased Yale Nobel Prize recipient Theodore Hudson. Reluctant at first, he eventually succumbs to her charms and sets off for New Haven, Connecticut on a wild ride with the esoteric Miranda that could be the turning point in his miserable life. There he and Miranda learn about Hudson’s past and must wrestle with the moral dilemma this information presents. Bread of Shame is about the beauty of truth when the larger picture is finally glimpsed and made to benefit seeker and savior and all those in between. The novel speaks to what it is to be an artist and a human being in a world where perception is obscured by human need, and knowledge is ambiguous and conflicted. Finally, it is about what it takes to live and love and write. “Miranda’s and Jack’s determination to discover the truth about themselves and others adds layers of interest to a well-wrought mystery. Engaging and moving... the language is poetic and deliberate.” Kirkus Reviews

The question of affect is central to critical theory, psychology, politics, and the entire range of the humanities; but no discipline, including psychoanalysis, has offered a theory of affect that would be rich enough to account for the delicacy and power, the evanescence and durability, the bodily rootedness and the cultural variability of human emotion. Silvan Tomkins (1911–1991) was one of the most radical and imaginative psychologists of the twentieth century. In Affect, Imagery, Consciousness, a four-volume work published over the last thirty years of his life, Tomkins developed an ambitious theory of affect steeped in cybernetics and systems theory as well as in psychoanalysis, ethology, and neuroscience. The implications of his conceptually daring and phenomenologically suggestive theory are only now—in the context of postmodernism—beginning to be understood. With Shame and Its Sisters, editors Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and Adam Frank make available for the first time an engaging and accessible selection of Tomkins's work. Featuring intensive examination of several key affects, particularly shame and anger, this volume contains many of Tomkins's most haunting, diagnostically incisive, and theoretically challenging discussions. An introductory essay by the editors places Tomkins's work in the context of postwar information technologies and will prompt a reexamination of some of the underlying assumptions of recent critical work in cultural studies and other areas of the humanities. The text is also accompanied by a biographical sketch of Tomkins by noted psychologist Irving E. Alexander, Tomkins's longtime friend and collaborator.
