The flamethrowers : a novel by Rachel Kushner( Book )

57 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 2,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year is 1975 and Reno--so-called because of the place of her birth--has come to New York intent on turning her fascination with motorcycles and speed into art. Her arrival coincides with an explosion of activity in the art world--artists have colonized a deserted and industrial SoHo, are staging actions in the East Village, and are blurring the line between life and art. Reno meets a group of dreamers and raconteurs who submit her to a sentimental education of sorts. Ardent, vulnerable, and bold, she begins an affair with an artist named Sandro Valera, the semi-estranged scion of an Italian tire and motorcycle empire. When they visit Sandro's family home in Italy, Reno falls in with members of the radical movement that overtook Italy in the seventies. Betrayal sends her reeling into a clandestine undertow. - from cover p. [2]
Telex from Cuba : a novel by Rachel Kushner( Book )

30 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rachel Kushner has written a riveting novel set in the American community in Cuba during the years leading up to Castro's revolution - a place that was a paradise for a time and for a few. The first novel to tell the story of the Americans who were driven out in 1958, this is a masterful debut." "Young Everly Lederer and K.C. Stites come of age in Oriente Province, where the Americans tend their own fiefdom - three hundred thousand acres of United Fruit Company sugarcane that surround their gated enclave. If the rural tropics are a child's dreamworld, Everly and K.C. nevertheless have keen eyes for the indulgences and betrayals of the grown-ups around them - the mordant drinking and illicit loves, the race hierarchies and violence." "In Havana, a thousand kilometers and a world away from the American colony, a cabaret dancer meets a French agitator named Christian de La Maziere, whose seductive demeanor can't mask his shameful past. Together they become enmeshed in the brewing political underground. When Fidel and Raul Castro lead a revolt from the mountains above the cane plantation, torching the sugar and kidnapping a boat full of "yanqui" revelers, K.C. and Everly begin to discover the brutality that keeps the colony humming. If their parents manage to remain blissfully untouched by the forces of history, the children hear the whispers of what is to come." "At the time, urgent news was conveyed by telex. Kushner's first novel is a tour de force, with the urgency of a telex from a forgotten time and place."--Jacket

It's 2003 and Romy Hall is at the start of two consecutive life sentences at Stanville Women's Correctional Facility, deep in California's Central Valley. Outside is the world from which she has been severed: the San Francisco of her youth and her young son, Jackson. Inside is a new reality: thousands of women hustling for the bare essentials needed to survive; the bluffing and pageantry and casual acts of violence by guards and prisoners alike; and the deadpan absurdities of institutional living

The lover ; Wartime notebooks ; Practicalities by Marguerite Duras( Book )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marguerite Duras was one of the leading intellectuals and novelist of post-war France, but her wartime writings were not published in full until after her death. The Wartime Notebooks trace Duras's formative experiences - including her difficult childhood in Indochina and her harrowing wait for her husband's return from Nazi internment - revealing the personal history behind her bestselling novels. The Lover is the best known of these; set in pre-war Indochina, its haunting tale of a tumultuous affair between an adolescent French girl and her wealthy Chinese lover is based on her own life. In spare and luminous prose, Duras evokes life on the margins in the waning days of France's colonial empire, and the passionate relationship between two unforgettable outcasts. Practicalities is a collection of small and intensely personal pieces Duras dictated near the end of her life. These deceptively simple meditations on motherhood, domesticity, sex, love, alcohol, writing, and more are witty, earthy, outspoken and surprisingly fresh and relevant to the same issues today
David Korty by David Korty( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Kortys recent work portrays a stylistically complex space in which his calligraphic alphabet of pencil lines, paint strokes, and colour forms coalesce into dense, seamless compositions. The simple images of everyday life: women reading magazines, couples milling about, figures waiting in line, and a man surveying a botanical garden betray the seeming mundanity of the subjects and reveal a kind of slow-burning introspection. The stillness of the figures and shapes in the paintings give way to a roving movement of the eye and hand."--Jacket
Yoshitaka Amano by Yoshitaka Amano( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A superluminary in the world of Japanese manga, anime and video games, Yoshitaka Amano has recently turned to sumi-e, a 700-year-old practice of monochrome ink painting that, until now, has had a rigid set of leitmotifs. Not so in Amano's contemporary hands, which pinpoint body parts from the world of Princess Mononoke and Akira and render them in wordless detail

When the cane fields start to burn, K.C. and Everly begin to discover the brutality that keeps the colony humming
Telex aus Kuba by Rachel Kushner( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in German and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Telex aus Kuba', einem packenden Roman über die kubanische Revolution, sind sie alle versammelt - die Castros, Che Guevara, der Diktator Batista und US-Präsident Eisenhower. Aber erzählt wird die Geschichte hauptsächlich von zwei Jugendlichen, Everly Lederer und K.C. Stites, die füreinander bestimmt zu sein scheinen: sie die Tochter des Chefs einer amerikanischen Nickelmine und er der Sohn eines leitenden Angestellten der United Fruit Company. Aus den Brüchen zwischen dem, was sie voller Faszination und Erschrecken wahrnehmen, tritt allmählich die Geschichte eines ebenso wagemutigen wie bisweilen absurden Freiheitskrieges zutage. Verwickelt in ihn sind, mit oft dubiosen Interessen, auch ein französischer Agent mit SS-Vergangenheit, eine kubanische Tänzerin mit erotischem Hang zur Macht, zahlreiche karrierebewusste Saubermänner und ihre dekadenten Gattinnen, Dschungelkämpfer und schmutzige Geschäftemacher. Rachel Kushner hat einen tropisch glitzernden historischen Moment des 20. Jahrhunderts mit grosser Raffinesse so verdichtet, dass er die Ereignisse wie durch ein Brennglas zeigt. Man liest mit allen Sinnen, sieht, schmeckt, fühlt mit den Figuren und überlässt sich Kushners herausragender erzählerischer Kraft. (Quelle: buchhandel.de)

Martin Kippenberger : the raft of Medusa by Martin Kippenberger( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Skarstedt presents the first comprehensive exhibition of Martin Kippenberger's 'The Raft of the Medusa'-series in New York. Organized in collaboration with the Estate of Martin Kippenberger, Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne, the show is dedicated solely to this exceptional body of work. The exhibition will be a multi-media presentation including paintings, drawings, photographs and a carpet from the series. 'The Raft of Medusa' will be on view at Skarstedt (20 East 79th Street) from March 3 – April 26, 2014.00Featuring paintings from the Estate of Martin Kippenberger, as well as public and private collections, the exhibition will demonstrate the breadth of the artist’s creativity in this singular body of work. The range of paintings and source materials include 16 paintings, 19 drawings, 14 lithographs, 9 photographs and a 8 by 15 foot woven rug which depicts a blueprint of the raft. 00Inspired by Theodore Géricault’s 1819 'Le Radeau de la Méduse', Kippenberger's series is demonstrative of his conflicted relationship with art historical precedents as well as his tendency to appropriate them.00In The Raft of Medusa series Kippenberger depicts himself as the individual figures from Géricault’s masterpiece. He posed for, then, worked from photographs, taken by his wife, Elfie Semotan. In the largest painting of the series, on loan from the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the artist recapitulates the whole of Géricault’s composition; now deconstructed in a tangled mess of body parts, faces, a diversity of unrelated strokes. 00Exhibition: Skarstedt, New York, U.S.A. (03.03-26.04.2014)
