In the Dream House is Carmen Maria Machado's engrossing and wildly innovative account of a relationship gone bad. Tracing the full arc of a harrowing experience with a charismatic but volatile woman, this is a bold dissection of the mechanisms and cultural representations of psychological abuse. Each chapter views the relationship through a different lens, as Machado holds events up to the light and examines them from distinct angles. She casts a critical eye over legal proceedings, fairy tales, Star Trek and Disney villains, as well as iconic works of film and fiction, infusing all with her characteristic wit, playfulness and openness to enquiry. The result is a powerful book that explodes our ideas about what a memoir can do and be.

Notes from the Dream House is a ‘best of’ selection of reviews by the celebrated Observer film critic Philip French. Spanning half the history of cinema, his reviews cover a great variety of films, from westerns and gangsters to art movies and musicals – the hits and the misses, the good, the bad and the ugly. French takes on films as disparate as The Gospel According to St Matthew and Ted, The Remains of the Day and Caligula. His reviews are personal, witty, and sharply perceptive. Time and again he reveals not only an encyclopaedic knowledge of cinema but also an erudition, an enthusiasm, and a boundless curiosity. Taken together, they form an illuminating commen¬tary on modern culture; but above all they are a distillation of one man’s lifelong love of cinema, a worthy memorial to one of the most respected and beloved of modern critics.

Everyone has a dream of their perfect house - in the heart of the countryside, or perhaps a stately residence in the middle of a wonderful city? For Kate Hutchinson, the move to Suffolk from the tiny, noisy London terrace she shares with her husband Simon and their two young children was almost enough to make her dreams come true. Space, peace, a measured, rural pace of life have a far greater pull for Kate than the constantly overflowing in-tray on her desk at work. Moving in with her mother-in-law must surely be only a temporary measure before the estate agent's details of the perfect house fall through the letterbox. But when Kate, out walking one evening, stumbles upon the house of her dreams, a beautiful place, full of memories, it is tantalizingly out of her reach. Its owner is the frail elderly Agnes, whose story - as it unravels - echoes so much of Kate's own. And Kate comes to realize how uncertain and unsettling even a life built on dreams can be - wherever you are, at whatever time you are living and whoever you are with.

How often have you strolled through the villages of Sense and Sensibility, climbed the windswept moors of Wuthering Heights, or raced down dangerous alleys in Oliver Twist's London? These classics are memorable because their authors used their own homes and surroundings to create them. A Dream House takes you on a journey to the homes of sixteen English writers. Each chapter includes a brief biography of the author (or authors) that lived in that home, how the home or countryside was used in various books, what you'll find when you tour the house, and travel directions. Follow Carol Chernega as she admires the table where Jane Austen polished her masterpieces, explores the boathouse that was the inspiration for Agatha Christie's Dead Man's Folly, and meets Tricki Woo and Mrs. Pomfrey in James Herriot's surgery. Whether you're an armchair traveler or planning a trip, Carol's humorous adventures and thoughtful insights will entice you into entering the world of literary England. Carol Chernega worked in Jane Austen's garden in Chawton, England as part of her grant as the first recipient of the International Visitor Program for the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA). She also worked for the Chawton House Library and the Jane Austen Society of the United Kingdom. Carol has visited England over twenty times since 1997, including two stints as a tour leader for trips to the Chelsea Flower Show. This gives her plenty of material for her lectures on Jane Austen, gardening, and England, including lecturing at JASNA's national conference. As the English garden editor of BellaOnline, she writes a column on creating an English garden, and has written a booklet on the subject. Carol owns One Garden at a Time, a garden maintenance business near Pittsburgh, PA. She specializes in English gardens and pruning. She's produced a DVD called Pruning Shrubs with Your Personal Gardener, which is available on her web site www.onegardenatatime.biz

A highly original and innovative study that brings critical social theory to bear on the ideas of architectural and design education at the Bauhaus - tracing the spread and influence of these ideas worldwide. Developed in post WW1 Germany, the principles of Bauhaus architecture and design were transferred by some of its leading figures to architecture schools at Harvard, Chicago and the IIT. Yet in the postwar era, they also became increasingly influential in architecture schools in Western and Central Europe, Japan, South America, Africa and the Middle East. This book provides a critical examination of the profound social, cultural and spatial consequences of these developments and the erasure of class, race, gender and culture which the 'modernisation' of design embodied. Written to appeal to an extensive readership, not only in the fields of architectural and design education, but in architectural history and in critical pedagogy more generally, it is also for teachers and students in German art and cultural history and the many architects worldwide who continue to be fascinated by the ideas of the Bauhaus.
