Eliot Dean’s life as a professor of English and Economics at the University of St Gallen is given a shock when he begins an affair with one of his students, seventeen-year-old Evie Muller, who believes one day that Eliot will be married. Eliot’s wife, Sandra, is an attractive woman, and Eliot has no intention of leaving her, especially as they have two children, thirteen-year-old Adam and ten-year-old Ilsa. Eliot’s boss, Gustav Schaefer, has always had some hold over Eliot’s life, since Eliot’s grandfather who was Gustav’s best friend, died in mysterious circumstances many years before. Although the death was investigated by the police, and accidental death was the verdict, there has always been a suspicion hanging over Eliot, who was present on the day his grandfather died in the cellar of the infamous Werdenburg castle. Evie invites Eliot to look into her background, having wondered what secrets her parents were keeping from her. Eliot complies and goes to Reichenau with Evie to look up her family history. They discover that her parents are not her real family, and that Evie is in fact Jewish of a mother who died in the Holocaust, and a father with whom may have had association with Hitler’s war machine. This discovery seemingly - changes everything. Gustav has his own demons to deal with and the police chief, Ernst Weber, who had first been on the scene when grandfather Dean died, finds out that Gustav also has a dubious past, and further investigations reveal that grandfather Dean may have discovered the secret past of his then good friend Gustav Schaefer. To which leaves Ernst Weber with a possible motive for murder. Driven by desire and the ensuing circumstances, with which he finds himself, and a worsening health condition, Eliot realizes things are spiraling out of control and things take a further sinister turn when his wife, Sandra, discovers the affair that her husband refuses to relinquish. With Eliot now suffering from pressures at work, the ensuing difficult situation between himself and Evie, and signs of schizophrenia - can he possibly find an answer to his problems or better still, a way out?

Hollywood Lighting From The Silent Era To Film Noir

Lighting performs essential functions in Hollywood films, enhancing the glamour, clarifying the action, and intensifying the mood. Examining every facet of this understated art form, from the glowing backlights of the silent period to the shaded alleys of film noir, Patrick Keating affirms the role of Hollywood lighting as a distinct, compositional force. Closely analyzing Girl Shy (1924), Anna Karenina (1935), Only Angels Have Wings (1939), and T-Men (1947), along with other brilliant classics, Keating describes the unique problems posed by these films and the innovative ways cinematographers handled the challenge. Once dismissed as crank-turning laborers, these early cinematographers became skillful professional artists by carefully balancing the competing demands of story, studio, and star. Enhanced by more than one hundred illustrations, this volume counters the notion that style took a backseat to storytelling in Hollywood film, proving that the lighting practices of the studio era were anything but neutral, uniform, and invisible. Cinematographers were masters of multifunctionality and negotiation, honing their craft to achieve not only realistic fantasy but also pictorial artistry.

This novel is about a character whose disillusionment begins soon after he arrives into contemporary culture and finds it almost impossible to cope. He is at odds with a dark uninviting City in which he lives and his work which he does in the Tower. The Tower is my synonym for all that he believes controls society and politics. Throughout, he falls back to compare his life to the life he remembers as a child. Most of them are memories of childhood adventures full of warmth and longing but he also remembers difficult times with his father. As he ages he begins to dream of a return to the past but eventually accepts that there is no going back. There is no escape for him as he has become far too deeply meshed into the City and the Tower. It is a story of unresolved struggle and internal conflict and a journey that poses questions, each one throwing up far too many answers to do anything other than to confuse. There is a great deal of anger at historical injustices perpetrated around the world, all of which has been sanitized by modern historical writing. His life ends in failure but that is what he always expected. It is also an intense love story and his love for a woman with whom he had an affair for only 24 weeks. Its failure haunts him throughout his life and he becomes quite unable ever to love again. His frustration leads him into several unrewarding sexual encounters, real and imagined, some with graphic scenes and some that mean nothing at all. Behind all this is a character I have named the Custodian. He is a mentor and his conscience, often by his side, critical and unforgiving but I never make it clear if he is a real person. In essence it is an analysis of internal conflict of a man who ultimately realizes he has failed at everything, having struggled throughout to stop himself from tearing apart. It is unusual in literary style combing a touch of poetry within prose. It is haunting in the sense that it a mix of past and present, always simmering in a cauldron of confusion. Sepulchral in silence this tranquil home in which I turn from side to side end to end. No challenge to my thoughts or voices with demands no calls upon my love or pilfering of my time No hunger I feed or thirst I meet, through these rooms I walk lips unspeaking eyes unsmiling answered in full my call to be free.
