Monsieur de Bougrelon, which originally appeared in serial form in Le Journal between 20 January and 10 May 1897, is here presented in English in a wonderful and fully annotated translation by Brian Stableford. This literary masterpiece, the eponymous "hero" of which is an extraordinary invention, remarkably exotic even by the standards of an era in which the intersection of neo-Naturalist and Symbolist Movements had created an intense interested in abnormal psychologies, is, for all its calculated eccentricity a strangely poignant work. It is not surprising that Monsieur de Bougrelon continued to haunt the author long after he had completed its composition and, as literary revenants go, the character is one of those most likely to make a liminal but profound impression even in today's world. In addition to the title novella, the present volume includes nine delightful stories from Lorrain's later period, which have never before appeared in English.

What is often termed 'Nordic Noir' has dominated detective fiction, film and television internationally for over two decades. But what are the parameters of this genre, both historically and geographically? What is noirish and what is northern about Nordic noir? The foreword and coda in this volume, by two internationally-bestselling writers of crime fiction in the north, Yrsa Sigurðardóttir and Gunnar Staalesen, speak to the social contract undertaken by writers of noir, while the interview with the renowned crime writer Val McDermid adds nuance to our understanding of what it is to write noir in the North. Divided into four sections – Gender and Sexuality, Space and Place, Politics and Crime, and Genre and Genealogy – Noir in the North challenges the traditional critical histories of noir by investigating how it functions transnationally beyond the geographical borders of Scandinavia. The essays in this book deepen our critical understanding of noir more generally by demonstrating, for example, Nordic noir's connection to fin-de-siècle literatures and to mid-century interior design, and by investigating the function of the state in crime fiction.

"If you know yourself you are doomed." Such was the attitude with which legendary designer and photographer Alexey Brodovitch (1898-1971), the long-time art director of Harper's Bazaar, approached each new project and transformed the world of graphic design in the twentieth century. Though known foremost for his work on Harper's, Brodovitch's legacy extended far beyond the magazine's pages: as a teacher in Philadelphia and New York for some five decades, he inspired dozens of young photographers and art directors who would go on to become famous names themselves, including Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Robert Frank, and Lisette Model. This book narrates the life and work of Alexey Brodovitch, documenting with extensive research and rare archival images his contributions to photography, design, and the visual arts. Author Kerry Purcell draws from original interviews with Brodovitch's friends, colleagues, and fellow photographers to profile the man himself as well as his extraordinary career. This book showcases more than 300 images of Brodovitch and his original designs, reproducing in their entirety the books Ballet, Day of Paris, and Saloon Society, as well as covers and every spread from all three issues of Portfolio. Among the rare materials included are book covers and posters from Brodovitch's early work in Paris and Philadelphia, more than 80 spreads and covers from Harper's Bazaar, and contact sheets of photographs he took with a concealed Minox camera in the 1960s, while he was a patient at Ward's Island Hospital, a mental institution in Manhattan.

The result of interdisciplinary collaboration rarely undertaken in such a systematic manner.Confrontations brings together literary critics, historians, and art historians to reflect on a cluster of themes inspired by the commemoration of the centenary of the Dreyfus Affair. From literary expressions of revolt in all its excess — and nuance — to the complexities of political confrontations illuminated by analyses of “J'Accuse...!”, this book explores the tensions and dissent kindled throughout the century by rhetorical, artistic, and political audaciousness. These essays invite the reconsideration of diverse forms of opposition, repression, and resistance, from the most blatant to the most subtle, as expressed through a variety of objects: word, act, and image become political gestures, just as politics is inspired by artistic and literary creation. After examining diverse forms of textual negotiation, the book explores acts of defiance and concludes with a discussion of a range of polemics, including but not limited to the Dreyfus Affair. This volume represents a reference source rich in new perspectives on the emblematic controversies of the nineteenth century —, literary, artistic, social, and political.
