Cornelia Foss : a retrospective by Cornelia Brendel Foss( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cornelia Foss is part of a loosely knit group of American artists often described as "painterly realists", a number of whom, such as Eric Fischl and Fairfield Porter, along with Foss, were captivated by the Hampton light of Long Island's East End. This volume, representing a major survey of Foss's work, includes landscapes, beach scenes, gardens, still-lifes, as well as portraits of writers, composers, fellow artists, family members, and friends. ... This handsomely designed volume, including more than two hundred paintings, offers insightful essays by poet and critic J.D. McClatchy, playwright John Guare, and curator-art critic Karen Wilkin - as well as a foreward by the artist."--

No other book has come close in providing such a wise, witty, uninhibited sometimes delightfully eccentric guide to lovemaking. And the original illustrations are absolutely iconic

No one questioned the existence of the operational androids who ran the cities, the services, even the government, any more than they questioned their own hedonistic existence. It was really only by chance that one human noticed how few the numbers of humans was becoming

Until they found a complete invader vehicle--and learned it traveled through time. But what was Time? What was Now? Could there be more than one Time Front--one going forward, one in reverse?

"With Farworld as his first port of call, independent shipper Navis Redling is back in business after a year in detox. Or so it seems... The man claiming to be Redling is in reality a notorious criminal who has bought Redling's identity, including his face, some memories, and a spaceship. What he has also bought is a heap of trouble in the form of Redling's checkered past and current enemies. Redling clearly had good reason to part with his identity. But the man taking Redling's identity has more difficulties than that. Two of the passengers he ferries through the Galactic Rim are dangerous: Kob Thrommus, an undercover secret agent, and Ku-Ril-La, a mysterious member of the enigmatic Guy-Troy. Redling does not believe Ku-Ril-La's claims that he is simply re-creating a trip he took in his youth, and he must work to make sure Kob does not learn his true identity!"--Back cover

It took the failure of an orthodox escape attempt to make him realise that his alien life-form captors knew precious little of human nature. So unprompted corroboration from another Terran prisoner held by the Lathians, Zangasta's senior allies, that said Lathians had the Willies was goo
