A heartbroken man turns to religion after seeing a vision in the sky above Central Park while his musician brother takes drugs he thinks will help him compose a ballad for his seriously ill wife. This novel begins with a vision. It's November 2004. Barrett Meeks, having lost love yet again, is walking through Central Park when he is inspired to look up at the sky; there he sees a pale, translucent light that seems to regard him in a distinctly godlike way. Barrett doesn't believe in visions, or in God, but he can't deny what he's seen. At the same time, in the not-quite-gentrified Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn, Tyler, Barrett's older brother, a struggling musician, is trying and failing to write a wedding song for Beth, his wife-to-be, who is seriously ill. Tyler is determined to write a song that will be not merely a sentimental ballad but an enduring expression of love. Barrett, haunted by the light, turns unexpectedly to religion. Tyler grows increasingly convinced that only drugs can release his creative powers. Beth tries to face mortality with as much courage as she can summon. The author follows the Meeks brothers as each travels down a different path in his search for transcendence. He demonstrates a profound empathy for his conflicted characters and a singular understanding of what lies at the core of the human soul

I am not this body : photographs by Barbara Ess( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barbara Ess is renowned for her unparalleled use of the pinhole camera, and her effort to "photograph what cannot be photographed"--The unseen world of sensation, thought, and emotion. The haunting images she has created over the last twenty years are gathered in the lushly produced I Am Not This Body, her first major publication." "Using the most basic photographic means, a camera with a tiny, lensless aperture, Ess describes the mystery and possibility that lies beneath the apparently mute surfaces of everyday objects. Due to the short focal length of her camera, her subtly-toned compositions plunge towards their luminous centers, their edges shrouded in darkness. Ess's subject matter is complex: the nature of identity; the primal forces and seductions of the natural world; and the interior and exterior lives of the self. She has an uncanny ability to describe and draw meaning from the world, in all its intricately-woven opacity." "Ess's is a conscious quest: to explore "ambiguous perceptual boundaries: between people, between the self and the not-self, between in here and out there." Her photographs insist that life is subjective; reality includes a perceiver, through whom experience is filtered. The psychologically charged photographs in I Am Not This Body probe the primary and personal, and activate the viewer's own imagination and memories. The strange and affecting images Ess coaxes from her primitive instrument are both utterly simple and richly profound."--Jacket

A wild swan : and other tales by Michael Cunningham( Recording )

A poisoned apple and a monkey's paw with the power to change fate; a girl whose extraordinarily long hair causes catastrophe; a man with one human arm and one swan's wing; and a house deep in the forest, constructed of gumdrops and gingerbread, vanilla frosting and boiled sugar. The people and the talismans of lands far, far away, the mythic figures of childhoods and the source of so much wonder, are transformed by Michael Cunningham into stories of sublime revelation
