Leni Behrendt nimmt längst den Rang eines Klassikers der Gegenwart ein. Mit großem Einfühlungsvermögen charakterisiert sie Land und Leute. Über allem steht die Liebe. Leni Behrendt entwickelt Frauenschicksale, wie sie eindrucksvoller nicht gestaltet werden können. Herr Schmehlich, der Besitzer des vielbesuchten Nervensanatoriums Seelenruh, saß gedankenverloren in einem der tiefen Sessel seines Arbeitszimmers. Er sog an einer dicken Zigarre und rauchte wie ein Schlot. Herr Schmehlich kam nur einmal in der Woche nach Seelenruh, um sich darin umzusehen. Er hatte noch weitere Unternehmungen, war ein gewiegter Geschäftsmann, der es zu großem Reichtum gebracht hatte. Heute war er auf einen Brief Doktor Meders hin hergekommen. Und was er vorhatte, das mußte ernstlich und reiflich erwogen werden. Endlich schien er zu einem Entschluß gekommen zu sein; denn er richtete sich im Sessel auf und rief den Diener herbei. "Sagen Sie Fräulein Rainer, ich ließe sie zu einer Unterredung hierher bitten."

"You can only be happy with your first woman or with your last," announces Nathan's father, thus summarizing the seducer's dilemma. Nathan, too, is a seducer, albeit in a different time. An editor for a Viennese newspaper, he maintains an emancipated marriage and an equally emancipated affair, paying frequent visits to his psychotherapist. Whereas Nathan's father sought happiness in women and Nathan's mother found unhappiness in men, Nathan intends to do everything quite differently. But what is he doing differently? Nothing. More entertaining and facetious than ever, Robert Menasse paints a vivid portrait of the post-1968 generation and a society "that cannot even sell a bottle of mineral water without viewing the goods from an erotic angle."

Though they were born 62 years and hundreds of miles apart, synchronicities between Paul Cezanne and Alberto Giacometti continue to arise. Called "father of us all" by Pablo Picasso, the French Post-Impressionist Cezanne is widely regarded as the artistic bridge between Impressionism and Modernism, and he was highly influential to Giacometti, the Swiss sculptor known for his Surrealistic, elongated human forms of the 1940s, 50s and 60s. The subtitle of this volume, Paths of Doubt, refers in part to both artists' refusal of the movements by which they were embraced: in Cezanne's case, Impressionism, and in Giacometti's, Surrealism. Doubtalso alludes to Cezanne's late success. His legendarily bad social skills led him from the artistic hub of 1870s Paris to the French countryside, where he lived as a recluse, only attracting attention for his work when he was in his late fifties. Giacometti, conversely, found early success with the Surrealists but broke off from them in the late 40s when he began making more realistic black figurative sculptures. His doubt surfaced in statements like these: "If I could make a sculpture or a painting (but I'm not sure I want to) in just the way I'd like to, they would have been made long since (but I am incapable of saying what I want). Oh, I see a marvelous and brilliant painting, but I didn't do it, nobody did it. I don't see my sculpture, I see blackness." This unique volume sheds light on Giacometti's stylistic allusions to Cezanne and finds surprising corollaries between the two masters' lives and work.

A socially committed Arab photographer, Sheikh Hassan Al Thani is a tireless explorer of the history of southern Arabia. He does not see Yemen through the eyes of a naïve tourist, but as an artist seeking to capture its emotional charge. A curious observer who is well acquainted with his subject, he photographs the footprints of this civilisation of writing, the roads of incense and coffee, the columns of the temple of the Queen of Sheba, the ruins of the Mocha tower, oases, arid expanses, and palm trees, all while pondering the countrys future.

From “one of the greatest modern novelists” comes a haunting tale of angels, art, and modern love (A.S. Byatt). In Lost Paradise, Cees Nooteboom sets out to connect two seemingly unrelated strangers whom he has glimpsed on his travels, and to explore the major impact that small interactions can have on the course of our journeys. A beautiful woman aboard a Berlin-bound flight becomes Alma, a young lady who leaves her parents’ Sao Paolo home on a hot summer night in a fit of depression. Her car engine dies in one of the city’s most dangerous favelas, a mob surrounds her, and she is pulled from the automobile. To escape her memory of the assault, she flees across the world, to Australia, where she becomes involved in the beautiful but bizarre Angel Project. Not long after, Dutch literary critic Erik Zontag is in Perth, Australia, for a conference. He has found a winged woman curled up in a closet in an empty house. He reaches out, and for a second allows his fingertips to brush her feathers—and then she speaks. The intersection of their paths illuminates the extraordinary coincidences that propel our lives. “Dreamy and self-conscious . . . [Nooteboom] brazenly explores notions of reinvention, healing, loss, and the divine.” —Tom Barbash, The New York Times Book Review

My Fellow Skin is a beautiful, affectionate novel told from the point of view of an impressionable young boy. The novel opens before the boy can talk, and we follow Anton’s first, tentative steps on the path to adulthood. He gradually begins to grasp an understanding of time and death, and when he goes to school he falls in love for the first time – not with the schoolgirls his peers are interested in, but with his classmate, Willem. A gentle, protective relationship develops between them, and this gives Anton his own, new identity, his ‘fellow skin’. But their love ends tragically, and Anton ultimately loses not only his love, but also his youth, the protection of his parents, and the old house in the village. He is left desolate.

The definitive book on the controversial relationship between Roman civilisation and the barbarian populations between the 1st and the 6th centuries A.D. It is now a well-recognized fact that during the Roman Empire, tens of millions of Germans crossed its border. Germanic mercenaries served loyally under Julius Caesar, first as auxiliaries, later as legionaries, while some reached important military ranks. Today it is accepted that without the contribution of the Germans, it would have been difficult for the Roman Empire to last as long as it did. But how did Rome repay the northern barbarians for their almost total availability? This scholarly and accessible volume attempts to provide an answer to this historical puzzle.

In 1953 the writer and curator Nancy Newhall assembled, with the cooperation of the photographer Edward Weston, a mock-up for an elegant book featuring Weston's photographs of the nude. It was the only book on this subject that Weston himself participated in creating. The sample book intersperses landscapes and still lifes with nude studies and includes an essay written by Newhall on the artist's aesthetic. The proposal was rejected in the 1950s, however, by publishers of fine art photographs, who were reluctant to address the subject. In 1985 the mock-up was acquired by the J. Paul Getty Museum with some pages and prints missing, yet it was only in 2006 that curator Brett Abbott recognized the key to reconstructing the unpublished book in its entirety. Now, in association with the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, Arizona, the Getty has finally been able to realize Newhall and Weston's vision. The present volume has been produced with distinctions of paper and ink to indicate those elements that have been added-including a preface by the curator and thumbnail reproductions of the mock-up as it now exists-and those elements that were part of the original, including Newhall's essay and all thirty-nine photographs, arranged on the pages as Newhall and Weston had placed them.

Shot in Sicily presents Michael Roberts complex view of Sicily its people, traditions, and landscape filtered through his photographic work for and beyond the fashion world. Spanning 20 years, the book traces Roberts changing vision of a sensual and ambiguous environment. Referencing Baron Wilhelm von Gloedens photography and evoking the films of Visconti and Bolognini, Roberts sense of Sicily moves beyond strict aesthetic categories.

Michael Roberts work as a stylist, fashion editor, photographer and illustrator has shaped magazine culture for the past decades. Throughout his illustrious career, Roberts has held numerous positions including fashion editor of the Sunday Times, fashion director at The New Yorker, and his current post as fashion and style director at Vanity Fair. His work has enhanced numerous publications including Tatler, Interview, and Paris Vogue, and his witty collages were celebrated in The Snippy World of Michael Roberts, edited by Grace Coddington and published by Edition 7L in 2005.

American painter Edward Hopper once said, "Maybe I am not very human--what I wanted to do was to paint sunlight on the side of a house." Indeed, Hopper's canvases delineate a new physics of Modern public space, in which the zones between people are not charged with responsiveness (affection, animosity, attraction) but with absolute indifference. Whether alone or grouped, Hopper's solitary figures bespeak Modern metropolitan conditions with a clarity that is deepened by his very specific ability to capture architecture, interior space and, of course, light. The legacy of this vision, coupled with Hopper's unique vocabulary, can be seen in the work of numerous artists today, who are also featured here. Among them are Ed Ruscha, Jim Jarmusch, Todd Haynes, Richard Prince, Rachel Whiteread, Jeff Wall, Markus Schinwald, Philip Lorca diCorcia, David Claerbout, Mark Lewis and Tim Eitel.
