LOVE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD. For Stephen, love is the most frustrating word in the English language because his love for someone very special must remain hidden; revealing it could disrupt the summer music conservatory where he's a guest. For Andrew, love is a cruel word because he sees the girl he loves choosing to love another, and he can do nothing about it—except resist. For Karen, love is a pleasant experience because she discovers someone who could become more than just a boyfriend...if everything works out. For Judith, love is a long-awaited reward when her boyfriend finally reaches the point where he can admit he loves her...as she loves him. For Doug, love is a shy discovery that opens a new world. Girls haven't chased him, despite his good looks, and realizing he enjoys the company of one particular girl makes the Conservatory a special experience. For Arianne, love is a beautiful and unexpected surprise. She encounters her first boyfriend and suddenly finds herself caring head-over-heels for someone truly special. Jason finds love's gentle pain because, for the first time since he met her, the Conservatory separates him from the girl he's grown to love. And, for someone, love is patient, love is kind, love is never envious or boastful, and love becomes a desperate hope because love may be the only thing that can halt cancer's advance... Join these young people and their cast of friends and family as they experience a summer of music and learn the many aspects of love in Arianne's Waltz. Arianne's Waltz is the third book in the Musica Con Fuoco Series. Mr. Davis has written and published other books through AuthorHOUSE.

Taking issue with many orthodox views of Film Noir, Frank Krutnik argues for a reorientation of this compulsively engaging area of Hollywood cultural production. Krutnik recasts the films within a generic framework and draws on recent historical and theoretical research to examine both the diversity of film noir and its significance within American popular culture of the 1940s. He considers classical Hollywood cinema, debates on genre, and the history of the emergence of character in film noir, focusing on the hard-boiled' crime fiction of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and James M. Cain as well as the popularisationof Freudian psychoanalysis; and the social and cultural upheavals of the 1940s. The core of this book however concerns the complex representationof masculinity in the noir tough' thriller, and where and how gender interlocks with questions of genre. Analysing in detail major thrillers like The Maltese Falcon, Double Indemnity, Out of the Past and The Killers , alongside lesser known but nonetheless crucial films as Stranger on the Third Floor, Pitfall and Dead Reckoning Krutnik has produced a provocative and highly readable study of one of Hollywood most perennially fascinating groups of films.
