What began as a 50th Birthday gift turned into a magical journey of self discovery in the city of love and lights. After 27 years of marriage, I found myself divorced on a Thursday and whisked across the Atlantic to Paris the following Tuesday. This impromptu vacation became a search for my soul, my smile, and the strong desire to live in the moment. When children and a husband define your life for so long, how do you regain your own sense of identity? When every room in your home holds memories too painful to bear, where can you go to allow your spirit to heal? Along the banks of the River Seine and in the cobblestone streets, churches and cafes of Montmartre I found a renewed strength inspired by the simplicity of French life. A new chapter of my life began when on a cold February evening Jon Webster a very tall and handsome American living in Paris walked into a wine bar in Montmartre. The sparkle that had been absent from my eyes was about to return and a pilgrimage to reconnect with the simplicity of life became a possibility. Faced with scenarios I had only dreamed of I took a leap of faith that altered my life. I conquered living in the moment and made my way through a city of strangers only to realize we all possessed the same desires; to be loved, appreciated, and in the end, grateful to be alive.

There is but one Paris. Vincent Van Gogh Maud Heighton came to Lafond's famous Academie to paint, and to flee the constraints of her small English town. It took all her courage to escape, but Paris, she quickly realizes, is no place for a light purse. While her fellow students enjoy the dazzling decadence of the Belle Epoque, Maud slips into poverty. Quietly starving, and dreading another cold Paris winter, she stumbles upon an opportunity when Christian Morel engages her as a live-in companion to his beautiful young sister, Sylvie. Maud is overjoyed by her good fortune. With a clean room, hot meals, and an umbrella to keep her dry, she is able to hold her head high as she strolls the streets of Montmartre. No longer hostage to poverty and hunger, Maud can at last devote herself to her art. But all is not as it seems. Christian and Sylvie, Maud soon discovers, are not quite the darlings they pretend to be. Sylvie has a secret addiction to opium and Christian has an ominous air of intrigue. As this dark and powerful tale progresses, Maud is drawn further into the Morels' world of elegant deception. Their secrets become hers, and soon she is caught in a scheme of betrayal and revenge that will plunge her into the darkness that waits beneath this glittering city of light.

In Staging Creolization, Emily Sahakian examines seven plays by Ina Césaire, Maryse Condé, Gerty Dambury, and Simone Schwarz-Bart that premiered in the French Caribbean or in France in the 1980s and 1990s and soon thereafter traveled to the United States. Sahakian argues that these late-twentieth-century plays by French Caribbean women writers dramatize and enact creolization—the process of cultural transformation through mixing and conflict that occurred in the context of the legacies of slavery and colonialism. Sahakian here theorizes creolization as a performance-based process, dramatized by French Caribbean women’s plays and enacted through their international production and reception histories. The author contends that the syncretism of the plays is not a static, fixed creole aesthetics but rather a dynamic process of creolization in motion, informed by history and based in the African-derived principle that performance is a space of creativity and transformation that connects past, present, and future.

The Collected Writings Of Michael Snow

Writing, for Michael Snow, is as much a form of “art-making” as the broad range of visual art activities for which he is renowned, including the “Walking Woman” series and the film Wavelength. Conversely, many of the texts included in this anthology are as significant visually as they are at the level of content — they are meant to be looked at as well as read. Situated somewhere between a repository of contemporary thought by one of our leading Canadian artists and a history book as it brings to light some important moments in the cultural life of Canada since the 1950s, these texts tell their own story, marking the passage of time, ideas and attitudes. The works included here, ranging from essays and interviews and record album cover notes to filmscripts and speeches (which, in Snow’s hands, often fall into the category of performance art), are not only “built for browsing,” they offer insights into both the professional and the private Snow. Together, they expand the context of Snow’s work and show the evolution of a great Canadian artist, beginning with his early attempts at defining art, to his emergence and recognition on the international art scene. This book is one of four books that are part of the Michael Snow Project. Initiated by the Art Gallery of Ontario and The Power Plant Gallery, the project also includes four exhibitions of his visual art and music.

A Peasant In Paris

Jan Grevstad's second collection of nine short stories has, above all, the ambition to amuse its reader. Amid a dash of satire, his stories reflect British type of humour at its best. Mostly stories of fiction, they have strong roots in real life with compassion for the human condition and human fate. The "Edelweiss Saga" is based on an old tale and has an ecological touch, while "The New Shooting Range" is a fantasy developed from a real experience of cultural clashes in the Alps. "Don't Queue" is based on the true story of a Royal Norwegian visit to Geneva, and "A Peasant in Paris" is entirely autobiographical.
