Book excerpt: "Following an overdose of painkillers, Daniel Fletcher is resuscitated in a Los Angeles emergency room and detained for psychiatric evaluation. Through a series of tests, the psychiatrist must ascertain whether the patient intended to kill himself, or whether he can walk free. What the psychiatrist doesn't know is that 'Daniel Fletcher' is actually John Dolan Vincent, a brilliant forger who continually changes his identity to save himself from a lifetime of incarceration. John has done such assessments before - many, many times." "While he creates an elaborate bluff for the evaluator, John reveals the true story of his traumatic past. But time is running out; as his underworld clients lose patience and the psychiatrist's net closes around him, he must negotiate the escape act of his life." "Evoking the boulevards and strip bars of 1980s LA with cinematic intensity, The Contortionist's Handbook is a darkly hypnotic and original debut."--BOOK JACKET.

This book was released on 2017-01-06 with total page 180 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Intertextuality, Intersubjectivity, and Narrative Identity presents recent findings and opens new vistas for research by mapping the potential interconnections of intertextuality and intersubjectivity across a range of fields. Multidisciplinary in its focus, it incorporates various research foci and topoi across time and space. It is largely orchestrated around issues of identity in the fields of narration, gender, space, and trauma in British, Irish, American, South African, and Hungarian contexts. The contributions here centre on narrative identity, mediality, and spatiotemporality; modernism and revivalism; cultural memory, counter-histories, and place; female Künstlerdramas and war testimonies; and parasitical intersubjectivity, trauma, and multiple captivities in slave narratives. The volume brings together the seasoned insight of established researchers and the vivacious freshness of young scholars, providing an engaging read. Ultimately, it will prove to be relevant to researchers, teachers, and the general public given its unique approaches and the diversity of the topics explored.

Book excerpt: Bailed out of jail and holed up in a low-rent motel, amnesiac Eric Ashworth has only the memory of a woman's name: Desiree. With steadily increasing doses of a strange new hallucinogen, Ashworth finds that the drug allows him to reassemble his past in broken fragments. But as he begins to lose touch with the present, his distinction between truth and fantasy begins to crumble, creating a world where divisions between love and loss, violence and tenderness, and fact and fiction are less discernible than they ought to be.

Book excerpt: New Orleans, and Vic Willing, Assistant District Attorney for the prosecutors' office, has been missing since Hurricane Katrina hit. Called in from San Francisco is Claire DeWitt, a detective whose expertise and methods derive from some unique sources. What Claire discovers takes us into the heart of the crime-ravaged, deeply wounded city, where those who can afford it live behind fences and those who can't are slain daily on the streets. And it's there she discovers that the only thing worse than an unsolved case, maybe, is a solved one. From the acclaimed author of Dope and Come Closer, City of the Dead is the first novel of a detective series unlike any you have read before, one that is sure to inspire a passionate and devoted following. Only a writer with a life as unusual as Sara Gran's - she was in New York City on 9/11/2001 and evacuated from her home in New Orleans on 8/29/2005 - could have written such an extraordinary look at modern-day New Orleans.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Springer Handbook of Spacetime is dedicated to the ground-breaking paradigm shifts embodied in the two relativity theories, and describes in detail the profound reshaping of physical sciences they ushered in. It includes in a single volume chapters on foundations, on the underlying mathematics, on physical and astrophysical implications, experimental evidence and cosmological predictions, as well as chapters on efforts to unify general relativity and quantum physics. The Handbook can be used as a desk reference by researchers in a wide variety of fields, not only by specialists in relativity but also by researchers in related areas that either grew out of, or are deeply influenced by, the two relativity theories: cosmology, astronomy and astrophysics, high energy physics, quantum field theory, mathematics, and philosophy of science. It should also serve as a valuable resource for graduate students and young researchers entering these areas, and for instructors who teach courses on these subjects. The Handbook is divided into six parts. Part A: Introduction to Spacetime Structure. Part B: Foundational Issues. Part C: Spacetime Structure and Mathematics. Part D: Confronting Relativity theories with observations. Part E: General relativity and the universe. Part F: Spacetime beyond Einstein.
