Streetwalking on a Ruined Map

This is most evident in the scenario she wrote for Napoli terra d'amore , where the city is transformed into a female geography : From the shining cup of the sea , Naples rises as a flower offered from God to the joy of the World .

Emphasizing the importance of cultural theory for film history, Giuliana Bruno enriches our understanding of early Italian film as she guides us on a series of "inferential walks" through Italian culture in the first decades of this century. This innovative approach---the interweaving of examples of cinema with architecture, art history, medical discourse, photography, and literature--addresses the challenge posed by feminism to film study while calling attention to marginalized artists. An object of this critical remapping is Elvira Notari (1875-1946), Italy's first and most prolific woman filmmaker, whose documentary-style work on street life in Naples, a forerunner of neorealism, was popularly acclaimed in Italy and the United States until its suppression during the Fascist regime. Since only fragments of Notari's films exist today, Bruno illuminates the filmmaker's contributions to early Italian cinematography by evoking the cultural terrain in which she operated. What emerges is an intertextual montage of urban film culture highlighting a woman's view on love, violence, poverty, desire, and death. This panorama ranges from the city's exteriors to the body's interiors. Reclaiming an alternative history of women's filmmaking and reception, Bruno draws a cultural history that persuasively argues for a spatial, corporal interpretation of film language.

This book presents the life stories of twelve extraordinary women who lived passionately and recorded in poetry their happiness and heartbreaks. Our English translations of their poetry are intended to make their poems seem to speak their thoughts, and we have included a CD with sixty-eight of their poems recorded in Italian literature, so that we do in fact hear their thoughts. In addition, several chapters take up some controversial art-historical problems centered on one or another of the women, suggesting possible solutions. This copiously illustrated, interdisciplinary book of 239 poems-poetry-in-context--- is not an anthology; together with the CD of readings, and the challenging art-historical discussions of several paintings, it is unique. There is no other similar book.

Crime in high places. Crime in low places. Crime from Coast to Coast. Crime in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace of Boston to the Vincent Thomas Bridge in the Port of Los Angeles. From the wind-swept sails of the New England shoreline to the transitioning Italian-American neighborhood of North Beach in San Francisco and the Disney Concert Hall in L.A. Crime is everywhere, from the murky depths of Echo Park Lake and the body dump of the Angeles National Forest, to the clear waters of Oyster Bay and the beaches of Cape Cod — even Mexico City — in this collection of stories that range from hardboiled to suspense-thrillers. And while these stories differ in locale, climate, mood and the tone and voices of the various writers, they all resonate with the dark underbelly of crime. Continuing in the tradition of the great pulp magazines, stories and writers, we offer you COAST TO COAST: MURDER FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA. Stories by William Link, William G. Tapply, G.B. Pool, Andrew McAleer, Robert S. Levinson, James T. Shannon, Sheila Lowe, Stephen D. Rogers, Paul D. Marks, Judy Copek, Bill Pronzini and Thomas Donahue. Praise for COAST TO COAST … “A sterling collection of coast-to-coast crime stories dripping with local color — all of it blood red.” — Chuck Hogan, author of The Town and Devils In Exile “Envelope-pushers! A truly WOW collection by the best mystery writers out there — full of surprises only they can pull off.” — Thomas B. Sawyer, best-selling author of Cross Purposes and No Place to Run, and head-writer of Murder, She Wrote “An engaging collection from a stellar cast of award-winning mystery authors guaranteed to keep you awake all night.” — Hannah Dennison, author of the IMBA best-selling Vicky Hill Mysteries “From Durgin Park in “Proper Boston” to the Plaza Mexico, from Fenway Park to Anaheim Stadium, this intriguing collection of stories from the Monday Murder Club will keep you guessing from cover to cover and coast to coast.” — Raffi Yessayan, author of 8 in the Box and 2 in the Hat
