Bernie continued to handle her affairs,a nd the townspeople went months without seeing Marjorie.The people of Carthage were shocked when it was reported that Marjorie Nugent had been dead for some time, and Bernie Tiede was charged with the murder."--Container

Waking life by Richard Linklater( visu )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and German and held by 1,156 libraries worldwide
An unidentified protagonist experiences a metaphysical identity crisis: he awakens in a dream in which he levitates, rides the highway in a boat and has other peculiar adventures. The story is a record of his random encounters with teachers, students, street people, and television personalities engaged in conversations, debates, rants, monologues, and speculations, all eagerly delivering their philosophical spiels, tall tales, and pet theories. This dream of a film recognizes that the fabric of reality can stretch and tear under the weight of ideas, and that this is part of what gives value to both film and dreams. Technologically, it transforms photographed reality into sophisticated cartoons by superimposing brightly hued digital animation on live-action digital video. This technique provides a perfect visual metaphor to use in an open- ended fable about perception itself

The Driver and The Mechanic roam the country in a tricked-out 1955 Chevy, drag racing for money and thrills. While stopped at a diner, The Girl climbs into their car and plants herself in the backseat. Drifting across the Southwest, they keep being buzzed by a snazzy 1970 Pontiac. GTO chats up a storm, bending the ears of the hitchhikers he regularly picks up off the side of the road. Like modern day cowboys, they just keep moving--no roots, no responsibilities--the only real threat the loss or destruction of the vehicle itself. These three men, one woman, and two cars end up in a race to Washington D.C., yet they keep stopping to help each other, and winning seems far from their thoughts. The road is itself a place to live, is home, not just a way to move

In one volume, the screenplays to two contemporary classics, directed by Richard Linklater, and starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, about the immediate and life-altering attraction between two strangers. On a train from Budapest to Vienna, Jesse, a young American student, at the end of a romance and his European trip, meets Celine, a young French woman. They are immediately attracted. Despite knowing this may be the only time they will see each other, in the next few hours in the city of Vienna, they share everything and promise to meet again. Nearly a decade later, Jesse, now a novelist on a publicity tour, sees Celine in a bookstore in Paris. Again their time is short, and they spend it reestablishing the connection they experienced on their first meeting. Romantic, poignant, understated, and often profound, these two screenplays are sure to become classics in their own right. From the Trade Paperback edition
