Walker's disturbing memoir follows the relationship between the author (a psychiatrist) and his wife, Michelle, from its tumultuous beginning in 1985 to their ambivalent last good-bye three years later. The subtitle "a case study" attempts to maintain a professional distance from this devastating relationship, but it's all too clear that the illness from which Walker's wife suffered came close to dragging him down with her. Walker is first smitten by Michelle when, as a medical student, he encounters her on rounds, where she is presented as a recent suicide attempt. He can't understand how such a beautiful, sexy young woman would want to kill herself and returns to interview her for a school presentation. Despite warnings from his teacher, friends and father, he falls deeply in love and is drawn into her world, only to emerge with great difficulty a year later. Walker, an outgoing, athletic, cheerful young man, relinquishes more and more of himself to Michelle and gradually becomes isolated, depressed, devious and even violent as he tries to cope with-and ultimately escape from-Michelle. Walker, who now treats teenage girls with borderline personality disorder, is not an expert writer. His dialogues often sound as if the speakers learned English as a second language. But this intimate narrative, showing how the best intentions of a na

With ?Becoming Siren?, Alexandra Hopf links the cultural history of the mythological Sirens with the story of the siren suit, a one-piece garment for the whole body which can easily be put on or taken off. Worn by women in England for comfort and modesty, but also popular among men and children, the suit was designed for use during air raids in World War II. Wearing these overalls, the dancers of the performance group The Sirens would entertain inside bunkers and London Underground shelters. The historical source material and reconstructed dance scenes reveal the diversity of the siren, in turn opening up space to dissolve gender polarities and class differences. 00Historical texts of animal and human camouflage behaviour depict how boundaries between subject and object dissolve, as well as ideas about the cyborg are being reflected in essays inspired by science theorist Donna Haraway. Based on historical source material and the reconstructed scenes of the dance, it becomes apparent how diverse the mythological siren is. The anthology jumps back and forth in terms of time and content; the resulting gaps create new spaces for fictions and transformations. Based on the historical source material and the reconstructed scene images of the dance, it becomes clear not only how multifaceted the mythological siren is, but also how she has empowered herself after centuries of appropriation of her myth.

This book, co-edited by a historical musicologist and an ethnomusicologist, brings together leading scholars and some talented newcomers in classics, music, media studies, literature, and cultural studies to consider the siren and her multifaceted relationships to music across human time and geography.

Dance Class offers an extraordinary collection of student essays about Anthony Powell’s great comic novel A Dance to the Music of Time. The young authors not only discuss issues of character, plot, and theme, but they also investigate historical background, chart personal relevance, parody characters and situations, even – in one student’s case – write a treatment for a drama. In examining Mrs. Erdleigh’s fortune-telling mumbo-jumbo, Cassidy Carpenter presents compelling – and original – evidence that the narrator’s birthday is the same as Powell’s. Will Story provides an invaluable guide to all the military acronyms that percolate through the war novels. Alex Svec creates a brilliant parody of writings by Julian Maclaren-Ross, the real-life model for X. Trapnel. For those who love A Dance to the Music of Time, this book will reveal fresh new ways of looking at the series. And for those who are just discovering it, Dance Class will prove a useful and highly entertaining guide.

A DETACHED EX-SPECIAL FORCES CAPTAIN A SLICK CRIMINAL OPERATION AND A RIDE THROUGH CORRUPTION, KIDNAPPING, AND MURDER... Ex-Special Forces captain Orlando Black strives to live a normal life in the Carolinas. But that all changes when trouble drives down his street, the kind that puts him in handcuffs — not what he had in mind when he moved here. No one is eager to fill him in or hear what he has to say. All Black knows is he did nothing wrong, and the chances of convincing anyone are slim at best. On this day, in the Carolinas, maybe even impossible.

The history of American theater would not have developed nor impacted the sound of music today without the composers, directors, and choreographers of incidental and dance music. From the earliest immigrant composers to mainstream maestros and film composers, their successes and sorrows mirrored the masses with failed marriages, alcoholism, earning a living, and dying alone and forgotten. Much of their music was destroyed in fires or lost while touring . . . until now. Elaborating on the introduction and chronology in Volume 1 and the biographical profiles in Volume 2, the author explores the careers of the masterminds of music from Edgar Stillman Kelley to Charles Zimmerman, with more than 150 musical examples and extensive Notes. About the author: composer John Franceschina served as Musical Director for more than 150 shows over 50 years. He served on the Musical Theatre Faculties at Florida State University, Syracuse University, and Pennsylvania State University. His previous published works include Sisters of Gore: Seven Gothic Melodramas by British Women, 1790–1843; Gore on Stage: The Plays of Catherine Gore; Homosexualities in the English Theatre: From Lyly to Wilde; Socialists, Socialites, and Sociopaths: Plays and Screenplays by Frank Tuttle; Rape, Incest, Murder! The Marquis de Sade on Stage (3 volumes); David Braham: The American Offenbach; Harry B. Smith: Dean of American Librettists; Duke Ellington’s Music for the Theatre; Hermes Pan: The Man Who Danced with Fred Astaire; and Music Theory through Musical Theatre.

"My name is Mary Hymers and I was born in the year 1927. My Mother’s maiden name was Thomasina Gilfillan; after she married my Father Norman Hymers she took his surname and became Thomasina Hymers. I have one elder brother Alexander who was the oldest of us, then my sister Barbara, then me; Mary, and the baby of the family was my brother Norman..." With these words, at the age of 74 and never having written anything longer than a letter before, Mary Hymers began to write her life. Sixteen years later, she's still writing. A Dance with Romeo is the first volume of her memoirs to be published and describes in detail her childhood and teenage years against the backdrop of the second world war. Born in Winlaton, a small village in the north-east of England, Mary Hymers describes growing up in the 1930's and the traditions, community of a close-knit community whose way of life had remained unchanged for almost a century and which, with the advent of the Second World War, was soon to disappear forever. When war was declared in 1939, Winlaton was transformed by the influx of troops who were billeted there before being shipped off to fight abroad. The transformation of the village coincides with the end of Mary's schooldays at the age of thirteen and her first job at Sinclair's tobacco factory on Newcastle's Westgate Road. As she writes “War was declared, and life really began.” For Mary, life had indeed begun. Working long shifts in the cigarette factory and out dancing every night, Mary's war is backlit by the searchlights, incendiaries and tracer fire of the overhead air battles lighting her way home. Whether she's inadvertently getting engaged to her penfriend, enduring (with an ill-grace) the steadfast devotion of Ginger Duffy - her brother's best friend, getting her sister into trouble for smoking cigarettes, holidaying in London just after the Blitz, Mary dances her way through the War and in doing so gives an honest and often funny account of daily lives of ordinarily people during that extraordinary time.
