✏Van Gogh s Ear Book Summary : From the mountains of Utah to the seaside underbelly of Venice, California come two brothers on a voyage of holy revenge and realization. Ross hunts the rapist of his one true love, Lizzy. His younger brother, Brentwood, is unknowingly along for the ride. Culminating with three murders committed on Christmas Eve, this is a dark, contemporary story of a young man who destroys what he loves most. Van Gogh s Ear is the soul-rending account of love between two brothers. It is the narrative of their last few months together in a world where love tears apart and the lessons of the mind are rarely those of the heart. David Nash writes with a blade. Van Gogh s Ear is the kind of novel which is instantly engrossing and disturbing, and it leaves us in awe. Ross is devil and angel in a dark, high octane cosmos, and I could not look away as he spun out his revenge. This is fierce and fine writing, and Mr. Nash shows us again the potency of fiction. Ron Carlson, author of The Signal What a dark, flame-lit, searing cauldron of love and desire David Nash has illuminated here. Van Gogh s Ear astounds in its emotional ferocity, its wide-eyed look at the nature of torment, the emotional hell we each create for ourselves and those we love: and always, at hand, the possibility for redemption. Love, that which would save us all, each to each. This is biblical literature at its most contemporary: Venice, California; sand and the board-walk and beach; the dark side of the music scene and those who so populate written in a prose, line by line, that aches to be received, its cadences melodically fit and thundering within the dark well of these lives where the heart so insistently drums. Only David Nash could write this novel. Like a friend, a chance intersection in the dark night of a soul, this book will change your life. Leonard Cohen writes, Forget your perfect offering / There is a crack, a crack in everything / That's how the light gets in. Van Gogh s Ear is that light. T. M. McNally, author of Low Flying Aircraft

✏Van Gogh in Popular Culture Book Summary : Vincent van Gogh continues to fascinate more than a century after his death in 1890. Yet how much of what is commonly known about this world-renowned artist is accurate? Though he left thousands of works and a trove of letters, the definitive Van Gogh remains elusive. Was he a madman who painted his greatest pieces in a passionate fury or a lifelong student of art, literature and science who carefully planned each composition? Was he a loner dedicated only to his craft or an active collaborator with his contemporaries? Why is he best known for self-mutilation and "The Starry Night"? This book has biographers, scriptwriters, lyricists, actors, museum curators and tour guides, among others, presenting diverse interpretations of his life and work, creating a mythic persona that may, in fact, help us in the search for the real Van Gogh.

✏Spare Parts Book Summary : A tribute to the parts we can live without . . . or can we? This book sheds light on human body parts once considered extraneous but now with modern medicine and modern medical paraphernalia shown to play an important role in our healthful survival. With wit and research-honed wisdom, health writer Carol Ann Rinzler explains in layman's language why we need ?bonus” body parts such as: The appendix, once discarded as "the worm of the intestines,” but now believed to play an important role in our immune system The coccyx, a.k.a. the "tailbone,” once considered the remnant of a human tail, but now considered the keystone of the boney pelvic arch when muscles meet and stabilize our seating Wisdom teeth, that ?extra” set of molars for which many "evolved” human jaws lack accommodating space but still remain in place where we higher primates still follow a basic ?hard”diet that require extra chew power On the other hand, having highlighted the still-important parts, Rinzler adds a chapter on dispensables: parts with which we can indeed happily dispense. Along the way, Rinzler weaves in Darwin’s theories of evolution and shares insights on what the human body may be like millennia from now. Charles Darwin considered them extraneous, but this witty book sheds moderns scientific light on the Darwin Six —appendix, tailbone, third eyelid, wisdom teeth, external ear muscles, body hair—once considered useless, now known to be both valuable and interesting, plus a chapter on the true dispensables, parts with which we can indeed dispense. Along the way, best-selling author Rinzler weaves in Darwin's brilliant and ground-breaking theories of evolution and shares insights into what the human body may look like millennia from now.

✏Collected Poems Book Summary : This book gathers four decades of writing, published in collections from Brunizem in 1988 to Pure Lizard in 2008. It maps the poet's trajectory, following her exile from her homeland, India, and her mother tongue, Gujarati, to the landscapes and languages of the USA and then Europe. Urgent, compassionate and inventive, Bhatt's work forms a uniquely sustained project of reinvention and rediscovery.Here is a chance to see Sujata Bhatt's favourite themes strengthened by re-gathering. A common theme is language, the very stuff of poetry, given special insight by her travels and her multilingual experience. In India, she says, it is a sin to be rude to a book'; The Stare' considers two babies, human and monkey, gazing at each other curiously, one with language, the other with... who knows? Elsewhere she considers the loss of her mother tongue, dead' in her mouth but returning to her in dreams. A broad-minded, humane, imaginative book.--Gillian Clarke, National Poet of WalesSujata Bhatt leads the reader through the bright, familiar world and on into the dark until her words pierce that darkness, offering a light that will challenge and reward. Here are poems that move confidently through that dangerous border-world between the real and the surreal, illuminating both. This book is a treasure-house of modern, magical poems.--John F. Deane
