Das neue, große Buch der Pulitzer-Preisträgerin Die Nachricht trifft sie aus heiterem Himmel. Ihr Vater, mit dem sie kaum noch Kontakt hatte und der inzwischen wieder in seinem Heimatland Ungarn lebt, hatte eine Geschlechtsumwandlung vornehmen lassen. Welche Verbindung gibt es zwischen diesem neuen Elternteil, der sich nun "vollständig als Frau" identifiziert, und dem wortkargen, explosiven und teilweise gewalttätigen Vater, den sie kannte? Faludi sucht die Lösung dieses Rätsels in den Nischen ihrer Vorort-Kindheit und in den vielen Verkörperungen ihres Vaters: Jude im Budapest des Zweiten Weltkriegs, Abenteurer im Amazonasgebiet, All-American Dad und heute eine Frau, die ihr Judentum wiederentdeckt hat. Faludis Versuch, diese Metamorphose zu verstehen, lässt sie Grenzen überwinden – historische, politische, religiöse, sexuelle –, um sie schließlich zu der Frage unserer Zeit zu bringen: Ist Identität etwas, das wir wählen, oder ist Identität etwas, dem wir nicht entkommen können?

In the Darkroom

In the Darkroom

Rozi's preferred form of punishment, my father told Helga, was to lock her young son “in a dark room.” When I repeated some of these stories to my father, she dismissed them as “gossip” and “stupid things,” and refused to say more.

PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST ONE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW'S 10 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR WINNER OF THE KIRKUS PRIZE From the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author of Backlash, comes In the Darkroom, an astonishing confrontation with the enigma of her father and the larger riddle of identity consuming our age. “In the summer of 2004 I set out to investigate someone I scarcely knew, my father. The project began with a grievance, the grievance of a daughter whose parent had absconded from her life. I was in pursuit of a scofflaw, an artful dodger who had skipped out on so many things—obligation, affection, culpability, contrition. I was preparing an indictment, amassing discovery for a trial. But somewhere along the line, the prosecutor became a witness.” So begins Susan Faludi’s extraordinary inquiry into the meaning of identity in the modern world and in her own haunted family saga. When the feminist writer learned that her 76-year-old father—long estranged and living in Hungary—had undergone sex reassignment surgery, that investigation would turn personal and urgent. How was this new parent who identified as “a complete woman now” connected to the silent, explosive, and ultimately violent father she had known, the photographer who’d built his career on the alteration of images? Faludi chases that mystery into the recesses of her suburban childhood and her father’s many previous incarnations: American dad, Alpine mountaineer, swashbuckling adventurer in the Amazon outback, Jewish fugitive in Holocaust Budapest. When the author travels to Hungary to reunite with her father, she drops into a labyrinth of dark histories and dangerous politics in a country hell-bent on repressing its past and constructing a fanciful—and virulent—nationhood. The search for identity that has transfixed our century was proving as treacherous for nations as for individuals. Faludi’s struggle to come to grips with her father’s metamorphosis takes her across borders—historical, political, religious, sexual--to bring her face to face with the question of the age: Is identity something you “choose,” or is it the very thing you can’t escape?

Anne Marsh's treatise on the art of photography traces its theoretical underpinning from the early debates between the rationalists and the fantasists, through psychoanalytical interpretations, to the theatre of desire. She investigates the role of photography in ghostly performances', the masking of desire' and high camp aesthetics' - through to performance art' and the role of the photographer as a gender terrorist' - as in the work of Del LaGrace Volcano. The study concludes with notable examples of postmodern photography as they have occurred in the Australian context. This ground-breaking work by a leading Monash University academic will interest all students of photography and followers of recent trends in art and art theory.

This book contains insights gained over a four year period as Jasmuheen spends 40 days in total darkness, devoid of all external light and food. To Jasmuheen the darkroom space is a simulation of the Divine Mother’s womb, a space that in the profound silence teaches many things. Here Jasmuheen writes of her personal experiences of the Prana Program and a little of her own journey in learning how to be the true breatharian. The first retreat of 21 days was done with Mantak Chia principles of the Immortal’s Way. The downloads from 2005 and 2007, came through with her own groups as she takes them through an intense training in the prana program to teach of alternate nourishment. As a free e-book, an average of 2,000 copies have been downloaded every month for the last few years from her website, hence Jasmuheen has added more to this journal and now offers this more complete version of this experience as an educational book in paperback for those who cannot download e-Books from their own computer.

“The Darkroom of the Map” (1931), Yi Sang’s first Korean short story, is often considered to be his most difficult work. As the text opens, we are led into the labyrinthine mind of an insomniac named “Ri Sang,” but the prose is extremely experimental, even by Yi Sang’s iconoclastic standards. Most notably, the use of pronouns is highly ambiguous throughout. As a result, the narrator, the character Ri Sang, and his friend “K” often become impossible to distinguish. A sentence might begin with the narrator speaking, but by the end, the apparent words of the narrator have become Ri Sang’s thoughts.
