The artists Sylwana Zybura and Tomas C. Toth have teamed up under the moniker crosslucid. Their shared undertaking is to develop "a prototype of the new world they long for." Yet this objective requires a variety of tests and experiments. What they envision is a trans-real identity, one that fuses multiple realities and modes of expression. It is often perceived as rapid change or as a reflection, almost a mirage. Many people's identities and their grasp of multiple levels of reality are increasingly equivocal today, eliciting contradictory interpretations. Zybura and Toth seek to deconstruct the strong personalities of the characters they depict, subjecting them to a fresh assessment and construing their bodies as landscapes. They are to be prepared to become part of an evolution that adapts to novel circumstances and technological progress and transcends gender, race, and norms. The fruits of two years of research, the portraits and still lifes included in this book are complemented by an essay by the curator and philosopher Simona Squadrito.

Poet Marjorie Gunthardt has always felt strongly about something, whether it be the pain of losing a child to the blessing offered at breakfast. She has channeled these feelings into this two-volume book of high-spirited verse, addressing essential subjects that have given her life meaning. Her work has a universal quality that makes something old into something new, something common into something uncommon. Each poem expresses sentiment without being sentimental. The first volume, Poems for Survivors, casts topics in a serious tone, driven by personal losses during Majorie's early years, including experiences during World War II. In this collection, Marjorie also writes about places she has lived: Cape Cod, New York, Paris, and Zurich, all of which she has called "home." The second volume, Between Eternities, is characterized more by humor, turns of phrase, and buoyancy. As Marjorie has grown older, her inner voice has grown younger and creatively observant. You'll delight in how Majorie sees reality, aging, family image, and keeping pace with life. Both collections spring from Marjorie's pure, creative joy. You'll read and re-read these collections for their literal and figurative depth, often stopping, smiling, and perhaps exclaiming, "How true!"

When Rosemary Kay's baby, Saul, was born, he was nearly four months premature and weighed only 1 lb 4 oz. The doctors said he only had a 25% chance of survival. In fact, he did survive for five harrowing months, before eventually dying of meningitis, just days before he was due to go home. This is Saul's story. Written from Saul's perspective, from when he was in the womb through his stay in hospital to after he eventually gave up the fight, we see the adult world through his eyes, interwoven with a deep stream of consciousness which links Saul to the history of earlier generations of his family. This is a remarkable and original insight into the tragedy of losing a baby, written with immense courage. Far from bleak or morbid, by contrast it is a moving celebration of life. BETWEEN TWO ETERNITIES marks the stunning debut of a hugely talented writer.

Natural theology is the project of articulating, defending and CntlClzmg arguments for the existence and nature of God without the aid of special revelation. Philosophical theology, which employs the rational methods of natural theology, is not restricted to premises that are discernible through observation and reason; it may rightly employ premises that are knowable through special revelation. While the project of natural theology may be construed as an attempt to demonstrate God's existence, one cannot ignore the importance of using reason or experience to understand, determine or assess attributes. One will want to know at the conclusion of a proof in natural God's theology if one has proved the existence of God and not merely the prim urn mobilum, source of moral obligation or a committee of finite designers; while God may be the prime mover and designer of the cosmos, none of these attributes alone is sufficient for making a claim to divinity. It is, therefore, difficult to distinguish sharply the project of natural theology from philosophi cal theology. The project of classical natural theology has been the attempt to prove God's existence and nature with arguments that employ premises that all rational creatures are obliged to accept.

"As mesmerising as The Life of Pi, and as haunting as The Diving Bell and the Butterfly." The Guardian. This extraordinary story of a miniature hero is one of the most original and unforgettable books you will ever read. "I love climbing mountains. Mountains go on and on and things keep getting better and better. There's always something to keep climbing for. Unless you fall. Falling off a mountain is worse than falling off a flat field, which is really only tripping up, isn't it? Some people would rather live on a flat field and only ever trip up. And that's alright because if you're afraid of falling, maybe you shouldn't climb mountains. But fields are boring and mountains are exciting. I'm going to be a mountaineer when I grow up." In an amazing leap of imagination, Rosemary Kay places us inside the mind of her new-born baby, Saul. With great humour, compassion and unblinking honesty, Saul demonstrates the triumph of the human spirit over appalling adversity, all the more extraordinary because that spirit is housed in the tiniest, weakest of bodies. For Saul is a premature baby, born four months early. He fits into the palm of the midwife's hand. But he arrives full of wonder, and with a fierce will to survive. His story is one of optimism, hope and courage, of supreme trust and tragic betrayal. Finely poised in the no-man's-land between life and death, every day of his life is packed with human drama and superhuman endeavour, played out in the bustling, bright, hyper-real world of the Intensive Care Unit. Trying to make sense of it all, he develops an otherworldly wisdom and insight, finding escape through imagination, and thus exploring the nature of love, of trust and forgiveness. With his endearing personality, he bravely battles all the expected complications of prematurity and several rare conditions as well. And throughout it all we are graced with his witty observations, allowed to witness the warmth of his developing relationships, and taken along on his mischievous, imaginative journeys. His story ranges from sorrow and disaster, to redemption and peace. Saul's story is now a film, This Little Life, winning many awards, including BAFTAs, RTA Awards, and a Prix Europa. "Who wants dreary? Not me. Dreary makes me frightened. I mustn't be frightened. Dreary made my chest go tight and when my chest went tight: pling pling pling! All my chimes start and important numbers flash red.....She strokes my chest. I'm a good boy. The numbers start to climb back up. "That's better." She takes a breath herself. She can breathe deep, it doesn't hurt and her shoulders droop. One day I'll breathe as deep as that, as easy, as smooth, as painless as that. "The most amazing celebration of life you will ever read." The Times.
