Air, 24 hours : Jennifer Bartlett by Deborah Eisenberg ( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Air: 24 Hours, Jennifer Bartlett creates her most personal paintings, all made between 1991 and 1992. Here, in each work, the unflinching presence of time is carefully, conspicuously monitored by a clock - light gray for day, dark gray for night. But motifs, color combinations, even certain images variously recur throughout the 24 paintings, shaking us up, causing us to realize that even the most seemingly casual, intimate scenes (a child's bedroom, a bathroom, the garden fish pond) are the trappings of much larger concerns. Familiar hallmarks of Jennifer Bartlett's earlier work - the relationship between parts and the whole, geometric structures and mathematically precise grids, a painterly sensuality and an almost obsessive fascination with repetition - take on new meaning in the 24 Hour series. Now they are employed to tell a story, to drive the narrative on, to take us deeper and deeper into some dark place." "Fiction writer and playwright Deborah Eisenberg situates these paintings in the most unexpected and provocative ways. Commentaries on each of the plates become the springboard for an extensive conversation with the artist. A visual reference guide to each of the paintings further expands their discussion

The winning stories take place in such far-flung locales as a gorgeous sailboat in Hong Kong, a Cuban sugar plantation, the Kenai River in Alaska, a mansion in New Delhi, a ship torpedoed by a German U-boat, and the ghost-haunted rubble of a Turkish girls' school. Also included are the editor's introduction, essays from the jurors (Lauren Groff, Edith Pearlman, and Jim Shepard) on their favorite stories, observations from the winners on what inspired them, and an extensive resource list of magazines." -- Publisher's description
The stories (so far) of Deborah Eisenberg by Deborah Eisenberg ( Book )
5 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gathered now into one volume, Eisenberg's stories have an astonishing power and range. Her characters, whether they are walking the streets of Manhattan or seemingly abandoned in foreign countries, continually make disquieting and sometimes life-threatening discoveries about themselves, discoveries that illuminate not only their own lives but also the wider net of relationships in which they are enmeshed. Knowing, witty, and exact, Deborah Eisenberg's fiction is fashioned with a jeweler's eye for detail and a profound gift for evoking degrees of human interaction and anxiety
Memoirs of an anti-Semite : a novel in five stories by Gregor von Rezzori ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pastorale by Deborah Eisenberg ( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Final edition by Wallace Shawn ( Book )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Final Edition is a one-issue-only political magazine written by people who are aesthetes and literary writers and edited by Wallace Shawn, who seriously believes that part of our national problem is that the people who run the country have a crude and minimal imaginative life and are too little acquainted with the quartets of Beethoven. The issue consists of five pieces: "Before the Election'Fragments from a Diary 2004" by Wallace Shawn The diarist broods on the analogy between the addiction to pornography and nationalistic obsessions, and he wonders whether a collection of people who vote in a kind of sleepwalking ignorance can ever be called a democracy. "Invitation to a Degraded World" by Jonathan Schell In this essay, Schell meditates on the comic book/disaster movie view of life, in which bin Laden and George Bush are both immersed, and discusses the "standing army" stationed in all of our homes, the media. "The Webern Variations" by Mark Strand Strand's hauntingly delicious poem explores what is most poignantly beautiful, while exploring the themes of darkness, descent, decline, and nothingness. Wallace Shawn Interviews Noam Chomsky For those with no acquaintance with Chomsky, this could make a wonderful introduction, while offering surprising insights to those who know him well. Chomsky is electric with vitality, wit, and rage as he ranges ferociously across the present and ancient worlds, giving his thoughts on the development of the internet, the 2004 election, and the God of the Bible. In an odd way, the interview highlights the inspirational and optimistic quality of this enormously angry man. "The Twilight of the Superheroes" by Deborah Eisenberg In this brooding, passionate, and brilliant short story, Deborah Eisenberg paints a brutally honest portrait of New York City today and of our lives today, wherever we live. Through observing the lives of some sophisticated residents of the great metropolis, we encounter truths which are both poetic and deeply political
