Visions of Anna Book Excerpt:

Matthew Harken discovers he has terminal cancer. Ill-prepared to meet his end, he makes a pilgrimage to the scene of the suicide of his dearest friend, Anna. He has the irrational hope that by investigating her death, he may be able to see into the world of the dead. VISIONS OF ANNA is a sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing work of contemporary American magic realism. It's a story of sex, psychology, art, Hollywood, the Holocaust, reincarnation and love. Book One of THE AFTERLIFE TRILOGY, VISIONS OF ANNA is followed by SHE PLAYS IN DARKNESS by Fern Chertkow and the play ANNA IN THE AFTERLIFE by Richard Engling.

China and the West Book Excerpt:

The meeting point between China and the West is a striking subject in a wide range of disciplines. This collection scrutinises how China and the West interact in aspects of culture, arts, politics and everyday life. Within a complex web of actors, dimensions, technologies, spaces and social structures, cultural encounters are nevertheless problematic. China and the West come together within the stream of a global world. The essays in this anthology analyse new and emerging dynamics that challenge authoritative views imposed on the other, while deconstructing traditional responses to otherness too. Bringing these essays together responds to a commitment to a critical assessment of the various shapes that such convergence takes within globalisation. China and the West: Encounters with the Other in Culture, Arts, Politics and Everyday Life will appeal to scholars and practitioners in communications, the visual arts, cultural studies, sociology, media studies, anthropology, literature and politics. The non-academic reader interested in the vibrant and emerging interface between China and the West will find this enlightening too.
