Overcome by the power of memory, Ann Lord reveals a long-held secret to her concerned daughters. Constance is a content wife and mother. Nina is a restless single woman. Both are bedside when Ann calls out for the man she loved more than any other. But her daughters wonder who Harris is and what is his relation to their mother? Constance and Nina try to take stock of Ann's life as their mother is tended to by a night nurse as she journeys into her mind back to a summer weekend some fifty years before, before she was married, going from New York City to be maid of honor at the high-society Newport wedding of her dearest friend from college, Lila Wittenborn. The bride-to-be is jittery, and turns to her maid of honor rather than her own mother for support. Ann stays close to her friend, yet is even closer to Lila's irrepressible brother Buddy. Unexpected feelings surge forth once Ann meets wedding guest Harris Arden, a lifelong friend and intimate of the Wittenborn family. Ann's love for Harris will change her life, and those of her daughters, forever
A wild swan : and other tales by Michael Cunningham( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fairy tales for our times from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours A poisoned apple and a monkey's paw with the power to change fate; a girl whose extraordinarily long hair causes catastrophe; a man with one human arm and one swan's wing; and a house deep in the forest, constructed of gumdrops and gingerbread, vanilla frosting and boiled sugar. In A Wild Swan and Other Tales, the people and the talismans of lands far, far away--the mythic figures of our childhoods and the source of so much of our wonder--are transformed by Michael Cunningham into stories of sublime revelation. Here are the moments that our fairy tales forgot or deliberately concealed: the years after a spell is broken, the rapturous instant of a miracle unexpectedly realized, or the fate of a prince only half cured of a curse. The Beast stands ahead of you in line at the convenience store, buying smokes and a Slim Jim, his devouring smile aimed at the cashier. A malformed little man with a knack for minor acts of wizardry goes to disastrous lengths to procure a child. A loutish and lazy Jack prefers living in his mother's basement to getting a job, until the day he trades a cow for a handful of magic beans. Reimagined by one of the most gifted storytellers of his generation, and exquisitely illustrated by Yuko Shimizu, rarely have our bedtime stories been this dark, this perverse, or this true"--

I am not this body : photographs by Barbara Ess( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barbara Ess is renowned for her unparalleled use of the pinhole camera, and her effort to "photograph what cannot be photographed"--The unseen world of sensation, thought, and emotion. The haunting images she has created over the last twenty years are gathered in the lushly produced I Am Not This Body, her first major publication." "Using the most basic photographic means, a camera with a tiny, lensless aperture, Ess describes the mystery and possibility that lies beneath the apparently mute surfaces of everyday objects. Due to the short focal length of her camera, her subtly-toned compositions plunge towards their luminous centers, their edges shrouded in darkness. Ess's subject matter is complex: the nature of identity; the primal forces and seductions of the natural world; and the interior and exterior lives of the self. She has an uncanny ability to describe and draw meaning from the world, in all its intricately-woven opacity." "Ess's is a conscious quest: to explore "ambiguous perceptual boundaries: between people, between the self and the not-self, between in here and out there." Her photographs insist that life is subjective; reality includes a perceiver, through whom experience is filtered. The psychologically charged photographs in I Am Not This Body probe the primary and personal, and activate the viewer's own imagination and memories. The strange and affecting images Ess coaxes from her primitive instrument are both utterly simple and richly profound."--Jacket
