The Ashmolean Museum Presents LOVE BITES: CARICATURES BY JAMES GILLRAY, 3/26-6/21The Ashmolean Museum Presents LOVE BITES: CARICATURES BY JAMES GILLRAY, 3/26-6/21
by BWW News Desk - Mar 20, 2015

Love Bites marks the 200th anniversary of the death of the great caricaturist James Gillray (1756–1815). His political and social satires were the Private Eye of his day – unflinchingly cruel at times, but keenly anticipated and collected. The exhibition takes a fresh look at Gillray's work, focusing on the unusual angle of his portrayal of marriages and alliances, be they sexual, political or bizarrely anatomical. It also explores Gillray's devotion to high art and his classical training and shows how Rubens, in particular, was a key influence. The exhibition features sixty works taken from the outstanding collection of New College, Oxford, one of the greatest and best-preserved groups of Gillray's work. On the occasion of the exhibition, New College has commissioned a new cartoon from the Guardian's Martin Rowson which will be displayed for the first time in Love Bites. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Playing Marital and Mortal Odds: 13 DEAD HUSBANDS at CohesionBWW Reviews: Playing Marital and Mortal Odds: 13 DEAD HUSBANDS at Cohesion
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Mar 14, 2015

If charming and silly are your thing, you'll have fun at Thirteen Dead Husbands by Tom Horan. Set in 'a Paris of the Imagination,' it centers around Dee-Dee (Cassandra Dutt) the 'most beautiful girl in the world,' whose stunning looks come with a serious drawback. The drawback: You marry her, you die promptly of some kind of unpredictable catastrophe. When the action starts, she has already been widowed twelve times, and has a trunk-full of wedding dresses to prove it. The question then becomes what kind of man would now seek Dee-Dee's hand, and what are his chances (of matrimony, and if so, of survival) if he does? (more...)

From simple beauty to dazzling grandeur, Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor” requires extreme virtuosity from its soloist, making it an ideal centerpiece for Pacific Symphony's upcoming concert, “Beethoven's 'Emperor.'” Pianist Barry Douglas, gold medal winner at the 1986 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition, travels from Ireland to tackle this famous concerto under the direction of Grammy-winning guest conductor John Nelson. Nelson, a Costa Rican native, also leads the orchestra in a performance of Schumann's alternately broody and ebullient Symphony No. 2 in C Major, which was premiered in October 1846 under the direction of another well-known composer, Felix Mendelssohn. The Symphony opens the concert with Carl Maria von Weber's imaginative Overture to “Oberon,” an opera of magic and elves. (more...)

USA Best Book Award Winner Bob Van Laerhoven Launches DANGEROUS OBSESSIONSUSA Best Book Award Winner Bob Van Laerhoven Launches DANGEROUS OBSESSIONS
by BWW News Desk - Apr 13, 2015

Award-winning Belgium/ Flemish author, Bob Van Laerhoven, has published a short stories collection, Dangerous Obsessions, with Anaphora Literary Press. Here is some information about the title: $15, 6X9?, 74pp, Print ISBN: 978-1-681140-87-2, EBook ISBN: 978-1-681140-88-9, LCCN: 2015904377. Bob Van Laerhoven: a fulltime Belgian/Flemish author, Laerhoven published more than 30 books in Holland and Belgium. Some of his literary work is also published in the US, Canada and France. Three-time finalist of the Hercule Poirot Prize for best mystery novel of the year with the novels 'Djinn,' 'Return to Hiroshima,' and 'The Finger of God.' Winner of the Hercule Poirot Prize for 'Baudelaire's Revenge,' which also won the USA Best Book Award 2014 in the category 'mystery/suspense.' Short stories in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Conclave, journal of character, the British literary magazine Wasafiri and in the compilation Brussels Noir in the renowned Noir-series of Akashic books. His last novel, 'De schaduw van de Mol' is currently being translated into English as 'The Shadow of the Mole.' 'Dangerous Obsessions': Tight, taut and shocking, these stories all have warped love as the source of violence. Belgian/Flemish author, Bob Van Laerhoven, winner of the USA Best Book Award 2014 in the category 'Mystery/Suspense' and the Hercule Poirot Prize with his controversial novel, 'Baudelaire's Revenge,' connects the fate of individuals with profound social changes. Van Laerhoven has been a travel writer in conflict-zones from 1990 until 2003 and echos of his experiences trickle through these confronting and thrilling tales, set in civil war-torn Algeria in the fifties, in a gypsy populated Polish concentration-camp during WWII, in a Peruvian border-town where stealing is a deadly art, in Liberia during the civil war in the nineties, and in Belgian Congo during the bloody uproar in the sixties. Omnia vincit amor-Love conquers all-the saying goes. But not our Dangerous Obsessions. Editorial Reviews of Van Laerhoven's novel, 'Baudelaire's Revenge' (Pegasus Books): 'A decadent tale... Commissioner Lefèvre's philosophical discussions with artists and poets and a creepy Belgian dwarf are fascinating...' -Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review, Sunday crime column 'Van Laerhoven vividly and astutely evokes a city under siege and keenly portrays the complex and controversial Baudelaire...' -Donna Seaman, Booklink '(An) intense historical crime thriller. The intricate plot, menacing atmosphere, and rich evocations of period Paris have undeniable power.' -Publishers Weekly 'Van Laerhoven packs much complexity into 256 pages, giving this historical mystery the heft of a far longer work... The flowers of evil, sketched in lurid botanical detail...' -Kirkus Reviews '...The novel also functions as a superb historical tale of an embattled city, as Napoleon III's France finds itself at war not only with Prussia but also with subversive elements in Paris itself... The flamboyantly lurid tone is hugely entertaining...' -Declan Burke, The Irish Times 'Mystery aficionados will love this pastiche of Wilkie Collins and Edgar Allan Poe...' -David Keymer, Library Journal 'This complex mystery from an award-winning Belgian author joins history and literary history to create a sly, smart revenge tale.' -Tom Lavoie, Shelf Awareness Pro 'Riveting, fascinating and 'very French' mystery... Van Laerhoven's prose is rich and perceptive, filled with philosophical and metaphysical speculations... This is a terrific mystery...' -Sam Coale, Providence Journal '...It is a journey worth taking to the heart of a strange, death-obsessed place where a dead poet still dwells in his writing...' -William Martin, Washington Independent Review of Books 'Beautifully written and deftly translated, Baudelaire's Revenge mixes the mystery of the crime novel with the sophistication of a philosophical treatise...' -Historical Novel Society Anaphora Literary Press has published over 120 creative and non-fiction books. Among these is the Pennsylvania Literary Journal, a tri-annual journal, available through EBSCO and ProQuest, which has published interviews with best-selling authors, such as Geraldine Brooks, Larry Niven, Cinda Williams Chima and Carrie Ryan, as well as the winners of the Sundance Film Festival. Anaphora authors have done readings at major venues. Several titles have been assigned in college classes, and reviewed in major publications. Anaphora is a member of IBPA and CLMP.
