From the author of the New York Times bestselling Undead novels comes a delightfully addictive new series about past lives and bad habits—and one woman paranormally predisposed to getting at the bottom of both. It’s her job. You couldn’t arrest for murder someone who had killed in his last life. You couldn’t bring a civil suit against such people, either. They could only be legally penalized for what they did this time around—and what a dark circus the legal system had been before that legislation passed! (It was still a dark circus, but perhaps not as dark.) But you could spot them, and watch them. You could set traps for them. Leah Nazir is an Insighter. Reincarnation is her business. But while her clients’ pasts are a mess, Leah’s is nothing short of tragedy. She’s been murdered. A lot. If left to that bitch, destiny, it’ll happen again. Leah wants to know who’s been following her through time, and who’s been stalking her in the present... P.I. Archer Drake has been hired by Leah’s mother to keep an eye on her. But the more time he spends watching, the more he finds himself infatuated. Before long, he even finds himself agreeing to help find the person who wants her dead. Over and over again. Now going full-on “rewind,” Leah hopes it can stave off the inevitable. After all, she’s grown fond of this life—and even fonder of nerdy Archer. But changing her pattern means finding out who her killer is today. And as Leah fears, that could be anyone she has come to know and trust. Anyone. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Caitlin McPherson lived a life most would envy. Married to wealthy biotech wunderkind Jeff Llewellyn, she was confident of her place in the world as a beloved wife and psychiatric nurse practitioner. She believed science holds the answers to everything -- perhaps even immortality. But following her husband's sudden death from a tragic falling accident, Caitlin found herself a young widow, shattered and hectored at every turn by the media. In search of privacy, she flees Seattle for Desert Hills, a small town in the California desert, and reinvents herself as a massage therapist. As she forms ties with the people of her new hometown, she struggles to make sense of her radically different life and the old life she left behind. But there is no escaping fatality. Caitlin soon becomes caught up in a puzzling murder investigation and begins to question the circumstances of her husband's accident. The nature of reality, she soon discovers, may not be as concrete as she once believed. Written with passionate sensitivity from one who has witnessed the suffering of grief, Touched by Fatality beautifully illustrates how a tragedy can open our eyes to a greater reality and the importance of forgiveness.

The D J Vu And The Authentic

The correlated concepts of the déjà-vu and the authentic suggest that all cultural productions are per se palimpsests whose construction is the result of such processes as reprise, recycling, and recuperating. Reprise is approached as various forms of citation, reference and intertextuality; recycling is defined as commodification and intellectual impoverishment; while recuperating implies the ideological process that makes reappropriation possible. By covering a wide spectrum of research interests, from literature to music, art and the cinema, the seventeen contributions in English or in French explore the political and ethical implications inherent in the creation of culture.

Referring to a past that never was, déjà vu shares a structure not only with fiction, but also with the ever more sophisticated effects of media technology. Tracing the term from the end of the nineteenth century, when it was first popularized in the pages of the Revue philosophique, Peter Krapp examines the genealogy and history of the singular and unrepeatable experience of déjà vu. This provocative book offers a refreshing counterpoint to the clichéd celebrations of cultural memory and forces us do a double take on the sanctimonious warnings against forgetting so common in our time.Disturbances of cultural memory-screen memories, false recognitions, premonitions-disrupt the comfort zone of memorial culture: strictly speaking, déjà vu is neither a failure of memory nor a form of forgetting. Krapp's analysis of such disturbances in literature, art, and mass media introduces, historicizes, and theorizes what it means to speak of an economy of attention or distraction. Reaching from the early psychoanalytic texts of Sigmund Freud to the plays of Heiner Müller, this exploration of the effects of déjà vu pivots around the work of Walter Benjamin and includes readings of kitsch and aura in Andy Warhol's work, of cinematic violence and certain exaggerated claims about shooting and cutting, of the memorial character of architecture, and of the high expectations raised by the Internet.Peter Krapp, lecturer in the Department of Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature at the University of Minnesota, coedited "Medium Cool," a special issue of the South Atlantic Quarterly on contemporary media theory. He has published in the fields of German studies, media studies, and literary theory and, since 1995, has acted as editor of the Hydra Web site for theories of literature and media.

Memory is essential for the retention of learning. In the presence of memory deficits, new learning is impaired and performance of previously learned habits deteriorates. What is the nature of memory? Where does it reside in the brain? What biological events are associated with the formation and retrieval of memory? These questions are explored in the first chapter of this volume. The answers are not final, but we have learned a great deal about memory processes during the past few decades. Memory is influenced by most of the pathological processes that influ ence the brain such as infection, trauma, cerebrovascular disorders, and met abolic and degenerative diseases. The nature and course of memory impairment are unique for each of the disorders and are fairly distinguishable. More than fifty conditions are known to cause dementia, which now affects several million Americans. In Alzheimer's disease, memory disorder predominates for two to three years before other intellectual functions are affected. Many neurological diseases, such as Huntington's disease, Friedreich's ataxia, and multiple sclerosis, are associated with progressive memory deficits. Forgetting is a problem that becomes progressively worse with age. Most individuals in their forties begin to experience some difficulty in quick recall of past events. By age sixty definite changes are evident in the process of registration, storage, and recall of memory. At this age the material that is to be remembered is processed more slowly, stored less firmly, and poorly recalled.

A study of the works of Virginia Woolf and of other 'Bloomsbury' writers, in particular Roger Fry. Dr McLaurin discusses the influence of Samuel Butler on the philosophy and especially the aesthetics of Bloomsbury, and the relationships between the writings of Virginia Woolf and Roger Fry, showing that in her novels she was grappling with the same ideas as Fry was in his art-criticism. He then explores the place of repetition in the whole process of art and examines the uses of repetition in the work of Virginia Woolf and others, notably the 'stream of consciousness' writers. The final section of the book draws these themes together in a study of To the Lighthouse. This book explains a great deal about Virginia Woolf's attitude to writing and her preoccupation with the techniques of painting, and makes intelligible much about her aims and methods by setting them in their social and historical context.

Countering The Culture

This is the first full-length study in any language of the writings of a remarkable figure in French literary and cultural history, author of nine prose fiction works between 1958 and 1988. Despite establishment recognition and a popular mass-market following, Christiane Rochefort has hitherto received surprisingly little critical attention. Her fiction forms an easily approachable learning tool for all students of post-war French politics and culture; the bestseller, Les Petits Enfants du siècle, is a set text in schools and universities in the UK and USA. This novel of growing up in the working class high-rises of Paris, written in the language of the streets, provides a vivid, child-centred view of a young's girl's social, political and sexual awakening. The Novels of Christiane Rochefort looks at each novel in turn and applies close attention to the narrative sophistication and political subversion of the books. Certain contemporary themes run through her work: the status of children, language as instrument of oppression and subversion, homosexuality, incest, child abuse. Each chapter of this book provides in-depth cultural and socio-political background material, and delivers a study that will be of great interest and value to students across a wide range of literary and cultural disciplines.

Detective Griessel must solve a cold case to stop a shooter in this thriller from the acclaimed South African author. Two police officers have been shot, and the Cape Town homicide department has received emails from the shooter alleging the cover-up of an unsolved murder. If the cold case isn’t reopened immediately, the shooter’s carnage will continue. Now Det. Capt. Benny Griessel is out to solve the crime in question: the murder of an ambitious lawyer stabbed to death in her luxury apartment. Unfortunately, there’s no apparent motive, forensic evidence, or leads. As Griessel races to piece together an investigation with nothing to go on and his colleague, Capt. Mbali Kaleni, attempts to locate the shooter, a third cop becomes the victim of another barrage of bullets. The shooter is growing bolder by the day, and it’s only a matter of time before Griessel ends up in his sights . . . “What makes Meyer such a national treasure—and as good as anyone in the world—is that even if you have no knowledge or interest in South Africa’s history or present, his books are compelling page-turners.” —The Times (London) “Superior prose and characterization . . . reminiscent of Peter Lovesey at his twistiest.” —Publishers Weekly “Sleekly done crime fiction layered with the cultural complexities of the new South Africa.” —Booklist
