Baross, Zsuzsa
In 2004, Jacques Derrida gave one of his final interviews prior to his death. Regarding the future of his work, Derrida advanced two contradictory hypotheses: "I will not be read"; and "despite a handful of good readers ...I am yet to be read". This book is an homage to the spirit of Derrida, and seeks to grasp the significance of his death on the rich corpus of his work, in a voice that remains true to the 'faithful betrayals' of Derrida's own works of deconstuction. Two key journeys underpin Posthumously. The first is an exploration of both Derrida and deconstruction through the unusual prism of cinema and photography, bringing into play Gilles Deleuze's concept of creative repetition. In the second journey, the author embarks on a detailed engagement with Derrida's oft-neglected book on drawing, "Memoirs of the Blind", and provides a subversive reading of that text, arguing that its labyrinthine turns (confession, self-portrait, and mourning) obscure a secret ambition to stage the last battle between its own graphic trait and the image in full colour. Beneath this vivid canopy, Zsuzsa Baross brings together a collection of shorter pieces developing the meaning of the term 'posthumous' in the world of writing and literary criticism, interrogating Derrida's posthumous lesson on 'learning to live'. The final act in this unique volume analyses Derrida's last hand-written note; a note, the author argues, that reopens the question of the posthumous and provides an infinitely moving lesson on life. 164pp.

Fox, James
Drawn from the private family archive, this book recounts a family's dramatic reinvention and transformation on both sides of the Atlantic. "All of the Langhorne sisters are people one has to notice", wrote Eleanor Roosevelt from the White House in 1945. This effect and their great fame held sway first in the South, in Virginia, then the rest of America and England. High spirited, beautiful, clannish and adored, these five strikingly different women were mythologized in the plural long after their separate careers were a matter of history. Lizzie was the strict, puritan eldest sister, Irene was the flirtatious and golden southern belle. Nancy was flamboyant and powerful, and, after a disastrous first marriage, launched herself first on the stuffy ruling classes of England and then the House of Commons as the first woman MP. The luminous and melancholy Phyllis was a brilliant horsewoman and the only person Nancy loved all through her life. Nora was the eternal child, her life punctuated with seductions and boltings. This exploration of family myth unravels the darker stories: the tragic lives of Nancy and Phyllis's children by their first marriages. Placing his great aunt Nancy and grandmother Phyllis at its heart, the book looks at how their past lives and mistakes in America came back to haunt them. Told in their own intimate voices, selected from thousands of letters and journals, the book charts the attempts of two extraordinary women to transform themselves and to build new lives, and the chain of events that would destroy their family lives and happiness. Top edge of D/J slightly creased. Small tear to top corner of D/J on front wrapper. 578pp.

Caraccilo, Dominic J.
Few American prisoners of war during World War II suffered more than the group that was captured on the Bataan Peninsula in the Philippines. The men were forced to endure the infamous Death March, a series of overcrowded prison camps, and the 'hell ships' transporting them to Japan and Korea. Among them was Colonel Irvin Alexander, who recounts his harrowing experience as a captive of the Japanese. As a midlevel commander, he knew the politics behind the surrender in April 1942, but he also suffered with the rest of the men through a horrific confinement. This is the story of one man's struggle to survive a brutal, often unfathomable captivity.342pp.

Lindberg, Ted
Ted Lindberg captures the development in life and art of one of Canada's finest painters. Over the past forty years Pnina Granirer has been exploring and extending her perception of the world around us with exuberantly colourful and formally innovative paintings and prints. Lindberg analyses in detail Granirer's art from her early years in Romania through her student drawings in Israel to her mature works in Canada. He offers detailed accounts of the major thematic developments: the Childhood Magic Series, the West Coast Suite, the Carved Stones Series, the Trials of Eve Suite, and the Eden Series. Lindberg also reveals how Granirer's recent work successfully challenges the age old nature/culture dichotomy and re-configures the vision of the artist to include Woman in all her many guises. A special section is devoted to her work as a printmaker. The book also provides an extensive bibliography, listing Granirer's artistic activities, her exhibitions, collections and commissions. N.B. Limited Edition of 100 Copies with Signed, Numbered Print. Head and tail of spine and corners of boards slightly rubbed. Bottom edge of D/J very slightly shelf worn. 191pp.
