Broadway Season 1999-2000 is a unique and detailed guide to the theatrical year presenting 46 different shows. The volume features a comprehensive discussion of every show that opened on Broadway during the 1999-2000 season as well as several non-Broadway productions of importance or general interest. Each entry is accompanied by credits and cast lists, scorecards summarizing overall critical reception for each show, and a recap of each show's financial performance. A new kind of theatre annual, this distinctive volume discusses what the shows are actually like (instead of merely relying on plot synopses or photographs). It is an interpretive record, featuring not only dates and names but also the stories behind the statistics. Opening night title pages illustrate each show discussion. Appendices include a roundup of the season's major awards, memorable performances of the year, obituaries, long run leaders, shows still running from prior seasons, scheduled shows that never reached Broadway, and a comprehensive index. Steven Suskin has provided a relevant and irreverent record of the year's memorable high points (and low points). Written from an insider's perspective, the book is knowledgeable, intriguing, provocative, and entertaining.

A deeply affecting novel about the truths we avoid and the bad choices that come back to haunt us. Gridlocked in the churchyard of a small Irish town, the traffic frozen in place for a funeral, Frances Moon pauses long enough to make a confession to Ian, her partner of nearly twenty years. The next morning, she finds he has left her. Unsure what else to do, Frances sets out for Elliot, the small town in western Canada where she grew up. As the perspective shifts backward, cruel students and unsympathetic teachers await a young Frances beyond the borders of her family’s quiet farm. Curious, imaginative, and lost, she finds comfort in two outsiders, the troubled local boy, Dooley Sullivan, and a decorated Native American World War Two veteran named Silas Chance. But ever present, splitting the narrative apart, is a small town that will close ranks, turning a blind eye when one of them is killed. The crime, itself, and the denial that follows, takes both Silas and Dooley from Frances in different ways. By high school, she’s become the girl most likely to disappoint, and at eighteen is already headed toward a disastrous marriage. Even after she shakes off the dust of the town and flees her husband, even as she builds a new life, she buries her past so deeply that she believes she has lost it. Until one day in an Irish churchyard, it all comes sweeping back. And so begins an unforgettable novel of lost souls and second acts.

Freud's thinking about the unconscious has always been seen to be more about representations than affects. When it came to the passions of the transference and the demands of his hysterical patients, Freud was always more interested, wanted to move the focus away from the transference, and onto dreams. Hidden wishes more than manifest ones were what captured his imagination and style. This book returns to the repressed theory of passions in Freud's own thinking, arguing that the repression, fixation and rhythmic movement of affects make up the roots and branches of psychoanalytic thinking. We can think of Freud's unconscious affects as a tree, with the most passionate and primitive affects that make up the core of our psychic life, moving and branching out into more elaborated emotions and representations. So what moves this tree: the house of our first passions? How we move the tree of our affects, or leave it, is integral to Freud's understanding of sexuality and the Oedipal Complex.

They are true soldiers of fortune. Twenty-five years ago they walked away from a war. Now they sit atop an empire…built on the blood of those they have betrayed. Charles D. Taylor, bestselling author of BOOMER and SHADOW WARS delivers his most daring and dramatic suspense novel yet, as he unravels a web of greed, violence, and corruption stretching from the turmoil of Vietnam to the financial heart of Hong Kong to the top ranks of the Pentagon itself. Two MIA sightings a world apart — one in the Laotian jungle, the other at Washington's Vietnam War Memorial — have led Navy SEAL Commander Matthew Stone, working for the Defense Intelligence Agency, to the threshold of a conspiracy a quarter of a century old. It began in the Iron Triangle of Vietnam — Bravo Company — where a few men struck a deal with a corrupt CIA operative and chose the drug trade as their ticket out of the war. And from the seed of the opium poppy they built a vast multinational conglomerate, its tendrils of power and influence extending across the Pacific Rim of Asia. For twenty-five years they have been listed as missing in action; now they're willing to kill to stay missing forever. Commander Stone is compelled to action by his own sense of honor, and by the painful quest for truth of Leila Potter. Her brother, attached to Bravo Company, died in the Iron Triangle under mysterious circumstances. And neither she nor Stone will rest until the scattered clues are pieced together…and the missing brought to account.

It's 1960, and Frank Sinatra is at the height of his power and influence in Hollywood. Bobby Blaine, a peripheral member of the Rat Pack, chafes under the singer's egomania and bullying. He tries to land roles without Sinatra's help and encounters only failure, until he is asked to do one last favor: pick up Marilyn Monroe in Reno, where she is having a nervous breakdown trying to finish "The Misfits," and deliver her into the clutches of Sinatra's Mafia pals at the Cal-Neva Lodge. Bobby hires Gene, a 20-year-old would-be beatnik, as his driver. Gene falls in love with a Mexican-American motel maid, encounters the racism of the day, and like Bobby, tries to become his own man. Bobby and Gene's struggles shine a light on the hidden ways of the world of the early 1960s, where a presidential candidate could carry on affairs under the nose of reporters, a world of Hollywood double-crosses, political shenanigans, bad Beat poetry, a hapless Broadway producer, and a comedian with a broken heart.
