LOVERS AND MADMEN: A TRUE STORY OF PASSION, POLITICS, AND AIR PIRACY is dominated by two central themes: politics and love. Julienne Busic's memoirs take the reader through the events that shaped her life with Croatian dissident husband, Zvonko-assassination attempts, threats from the Yugoslav secret police, flights from country to country, enforced poverty and deprivation-and characterize the love that led to the greatest sacrifice of all: a sentence of life in prison for the political hijacking of a TWA jet.Less than twenty years after the Busics' desperate act, Yugoslavia broke apart in a spasm of war, and Croatia is now an independent state. The message contained in the leaflets thrown during the hijacking served as a prophecy of this disintegration and the vicious Serbian aggression, first in Croatia and Bosnia, and most recently in Albanian-populated Kosovo.Zvonko and Julienne Busic received mandatory life sentences (with parole eligibility recommended by the judge after ten years for Zvonko, and eight years for Julienne). Julienne served thirteen years in prison and was released on parole in 1989. Zvonko remained in prison until he was released in June 2009, almost thirty-two years later, from a high security unit in Terre Haute, Indiana.You can also purchase this book on Amazon:http://www.amazon.com/Lovers-Madmen-Passion-Politics-Healthy/dp/1519615027/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1451393922&sr=1-1&keywords=julienne+busic

This novel by D. H. Lawrence was first published in 1928 and subsequently banned. Lady Chatterley's Lover is one of the most subversive novels in English Literature. The first edition was printed privately in Florence, Italy, with assistance from Pino Orioli; an unexpurgated edition could not be published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960. (A private edition was issued by Inky Stephensen's Mandrake Press in 1929.) The book soon became notorious for its story of the physical relationship between a working-class man and an upper-class woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of then-unprintable words. Lady Chatterley's Lover was inspired by the long-standing affair between Frieda, Lawrence's German wife, and an Italian peasant who eventually became her third husband; Lawrence's struggle with sexual impotence; and the circumstances of his and Frieda's courtship and the early years of their marriage.

Mad Men Unbuttoned, footnotes to the show and the era, including these fascinating tidbits: Don Draper's character is based on the real-life Draper Daniels, protÉgÉ of Leo Burnett who started off as a copywriter and rose to creative director, eventually heading the team that launched the Marlboro Man. The iconic "Think Small" Volkswagen ad positioned the Beetle as an ugly but well-made car—a revolt against excess. Not only did unit sales top 500,000 cars a year, but the campaign succeeded in junking all the rules of car advertising. When barred from visiting Disneyland on a trip to the United States, Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev threw a tantrum and left Los Angeles in a huff the very next day. The Group by Mary McCarthy, the novel Betty Draper is seen reading in the bathtub, transformed the way women viewed love, sex, and marriage. In 1947 Christian Dior showcased its revolutionary New Look line. Betty, Peggy, and the rest of the steno pool at Sterling-Cooper can be seen sporting the sloping shoulders, hourglass silhouettes, and billowing skirts of the New Look style.

Through dreams and shadows and strangeness, through blinding charms and eye-opening counter-charms, through moments of mortification and laughter—thus Stuart M. Tave traces the journey of the lovers, clowns, and fairies who populate comedies from A Midsummer Night's Dream to Waiting for Godot. Tave avoids the pitfalls of theory, taking instead a close look at particular works to give us a sense of the relations between certain dramas and novels that are called comedies. The result is a wonderfully readable book that renews our delight in the enchanting possibilities of literature. A Midsummer Night's Dream, in its "perfection," is Tave's point of departure. Its characters fall neatly into the three groups of Tave's title and fulfill to perfection their functions of desire, foolishness, and power. From the magical concord of Shakespeare's resolution, Tave moves to works whose character face ever greater difficulties in reaching a happy conclusion. From Jonson and Austen to Chekhov and Beckett, he meets comedies on their own terms, illuminating the complex and individual genius of each. A masterpiece of practical criticism, Lovers, Clowns, and Fairies rediscovers the pleasure of reading comedies.

Book & DVD. Text in English, French & German. After numerous requests, Roy Stuart is back with a new collection of photos. In it he unveils a more daring and subversive world that is bigger, bolder and goes further than anything hes already published. Since the creation of The Lost Door, his full-length feature film, Roy Stuart has continued to augment contemporary photography with his unique rhythm and voice. In a time when video dominates, still photography is no longer isolated. Instead, its immediacy is part of a stream where the image invokes a before and after, compressing and magnifying its power. Beyond the need for captions, a photograph must break free of its limitations and evolve, revealing a third dimension, able to express words, poetry or even music. The DVD that accompanies the book of photographs is much more than just a free gift. It is a true extension of the work, and invites you to re-examine it, questioning its limitations and unexplored possibilities. It contains sequences from Roy Stuarts GLIMPSE series, and clips from his photo shoots, accompanied by music and occasional text. The DVD represents an alliance between photography and video, providing a vision of what erotic art is, as opposed to the porn industry, which merely clutters up the Internet with junk.

"UNOFFICIAL AND UNAUTHORIZED The appeal of AMC's award-winning period drama Mad Men, shortly to begin its fifth season, lies as much in its painstaking portrait of 1960s America as in the emotional lives of its characters. In The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook, Judy Gelman and Peter Zheutlin explore the show's culinary backdrop, from the food we see on the table at Sterling Cooper power lunches to the dishes Betty serves at Draper dinner parties. With more than 60 recipes, photos, and other images all drawn from the period in which Mad Men is set, The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook is perfect for appreciating the role food and drink play in the hit series or for throwing your own historically accurate Mad Men-inspired cocktail party. * Find out why Betty might have chosen her "Around the World" dinner party theme-plus why Don's Heineken ad campaign would have been so well-received by the public-and try a gazpacho from Spain, using a recipe Betty herself might have. * Learn why Sardi's, the restaurant where Bobbi Barrett and Don celebrate selling her husband's new pilot, was a likely location for post-TV deal celebration, and make Sardi's famous steak tartar for yourself. Includes a color photo insert of 16 dishes, plus additional black and white photos andother images of bars, restaurants, and food advertisements from the 1960s. "--

It is often said that madness is the other side of the coin from genius, and the saxophonists described in this book certainly qualify for both adjectives. This book is an enthusiastic distillation of numerous heavy tomes on the life and work of some of the most notable sax players, together with the man himself, Adolphe Sax; the inventor of the wonderful machine. 'Strikes a masterful, perfect balance between info, humour and insight, wonderfully informative, conveying strongly the passion and excitement these two wonderful music and sax-mad writers have for their subject. Superbly illustrated too. This great book has abundant style and oozes character, just as I would expect, its authors do too. A must for all players and lovers of the saxophone' - Snake Davis. 'Fantastic book - puts you in contact with the centre of things - it's so humbling to think that no one played like these guys before these guys - I've been lucky to meet and talk with Ornette and Sonny Rollins and I once stood at a bar in Paris next to Dexter... and am still buzzing... join the jazz revolution and read this book' - Andy Sheppard. 'At last, a succinct, humorous and evocative introduction to Adolphe Sax, the saxophone, and some of the legendary players who secured its place in Jazz history. Aspiring students will find this quick guide to the essential saxophonists and their recordings invaluable' - Iain Ballamy.

In 1968, nine sailors set off on the most daring race ever held: to single-handedly circumnavigate the globe nonstop. It was a feat that had never been accomplished and one that would forever change the face of sailing. Ten months later, only one of the nine men would cross the finish line and earn fame, wealth, and glory. For the others, the reward was madness, failure, and death. In this extraordinary book, Peter Nichols chronicles a contest of the individual against the sea, waged at a time before cell phones, satellite dishes, and electronic positioning systems. A Voyage for Madmen is a tale of sailors driven by their own dreams and demons, of horrific storms in the Southern Ocean, and of those riveting moments when a split-second decision means the difference between life and death.

Taboos: Busted The best of Roy Stuart's Leg Show fantasy photos Between 1987 and 2001, Dian Hanson, then editor of Leg Show magazine, and photographer Roy Stuart collaborated on over 100 fetish photo shoots, producing an intensely sexual, socially transgressive body of work unmatched in contemporary erotic photography. Stuart, influenced by authors Angela Carter, William S. Burroughs, and Georges Bataille, was and remains passionately opposed to commercial pornography and insisted every photo story subvert and skewer some societally imposed sexual taboo. Women are portrayed with strength and sexual agency; men are often submissive; all are adventuresome and fluid. Hanson selected the wardrobe to appeal to a range of sexual tastes, including stocking, shoe, panty, nylon, and rubber fetishes. Viewed today, the styles and attitudes speak to the liberal hedonism of 1990s America, when, under the Clinton presidency, erotic artists were afforded more creative freedom. Power Play, the first volume in the series Roy Stuart: Embrace Your Fantasies, showcases photo stories addressing sexual power dynamics. All images are from the original transparencies, rescued from the Leg Show archives before the magazine's demise in 2012, and presented with Hanson's original magazine text. Join us in a trip back to the prosperous, optimistic 1990s to explore your fantasies--and perhaps some you never considered--with the richly produced sexual subversion of Roy Stuart and Dian Hanson. "'Art porn' almost universally fails to be either aesthetically satisfying or a turn-on--but Roy Stuart bestrides both camps like an obscene and beguiling colossus, truly earning the title undisputed master of the genre." -- Arena, London Text in English, French and German

Explored in this essay collection is how Shakespeare is rewritten, reinscribed and translated to fit within the local tradition, values, and languages of the world's various communities and cultures. Contributors show that Shakespeare, regardless of the medium – theater, pedagogy, or literary studies – is commonly 'rooted' in the local customs of a people in ways that challenge the notion that his drama promotes a Western idealism. Native Shakespeares examines how the persistent indigenization of Shakespeare complicates the traditional vision of his work as a voice of Western culture and colonial hegemony. The international range of the collection and the focus on indigenous practices distinguishes Native Shakespeares from other available texts.
