<b>A new adult STANDALONE romance from <i>USA Today</i> bestselling author Siobhan Davis.</b><br /><br /><i>A troubled popstar forced into hiding… A sweet small-town girl overcoming tragedy… And the kind of love that only happens once in a lifetime.</i><br /><br />Dakota’s dreams of attending Juilliard were shattered the night tragedy struck her family. It’s one year later, and she’s now enrolled at a local university trying to piece her life back together.<br /><br />Shawn is one of the world’s most famous faces, having lived under a spotlight since his star exploded when he was fourteen. Now jaded by an industry forcing him to perform music he no longer enjoys, he craves normalcy and the opportunity to rediscover his muse.

Soft is Fast: Simone Forti in the 1960s and After (MIT Press)

<P><B>An innovative analysis of Simone Forti's interdisciplinary art, viewing her influential 1960s “dance constructions” as negotiating the aesthetic strategies of John Cage and Anna Halprin.</B></P><P>Simone Forti's art developed within the overlapping circles of New York City's advanced visual art, dance, and music of the early 1960s. Her “dance constructions” and related works of the 1960s were important for both visual art and dance of the era. Artists Robert Morris and Yvonne Rainer have both acknowledged her influence.</P><P>Forti seems to have kept one foot inside visual art's frames of meaning and the other outside them. In <I>Soft Is Fast</I>, Meredith Morse adopts a new way to understand Forti's work, based in art historical analysis but drawing upon dance history and cultural studies and the history of American social thought. Morse argues that Forti introduced a form of direct encounter that departed radically from the spectatorship proposed by Minimalism, and prefigured the participatory art of recent decades.</P><P>Morse shows that Forti's work negotiated John Cage's ideas of sound, score, and theater through the unique approach to movement, essentially improvisational and grounded in anatomical exploration, that she learned from performer and teacher Ann (later Anna) Halprin. Attentive to Robert Whitman's and La Monte Young's responses to Cage, Forti reshaped Cage's concepts into models that could accommodate Halprin's charged spaces and imagined, interpenetrative understanding of other bodies.</P><P>Morse considers Forti's use of sound and her affective use of materials as central to her work; examines Forti's text pieces, little discussed in art historical literature; analyzes <I>Huddle</I>, considered one of Forti's signature works; and explicates Forti's later improvisational practice. </P><P>Forti has been relatively overlooked by art historians, perhaps because of her work's central concern with modes of feeling and embodiment, unlike other art of the 1960s, which was characterized by strategies of depersonalization and affectlessness. <I>Soft Is Fast</I> corrects this critical oversight.</P>

<div>It's said the artist is born of a damaged soul...<br /><br /></div><div></div><div></div><div>Wilhelmina Allende is a prima ballerina. When tragedy turns her beloved Paris into a gilded cage, she jumps at the chance to work with one of the most prolific choreographers she's ever seen. But Zack's style is <i>way</i> out of her comfort zone. So is his teaching method. And his humor. And his everything. He's a charming little <i>connard</i>. It's hard not to like him. <i>Merde</i>. What has she gotten herself into?<br /><br /></div><div></div><div></div><div>Zachary Coen's first musical is opening on Broadway. Much like his life, it's anything but conventional, so hiring Mina is simply out of the question. She's too...classical. Too perfect. She's all wrong for the role. Then he meets her in person and sees her cracks. Her broken pieces. How unique and beautiful each one is. And he can't help but notice how her edges seem to fit his...perfectly.<br /><br /></div><div></div><div></div><div>Just when teaming up seems to be working, the monsters they've kept hidden threaten to rip it all apart.<br /><br /></div><div></div><div><i>**Content warning: The hero is a child molestation survivor and hyper focuses on what he eats as a coping mechanism.

<b>A distinguished dance critic offers an enchanting introduction to the art of ballet</b><br /><br />As much as we may enjoy <i>Swan Lake</i> or <i>The Nutcracker</i>, for many of us ballet is a foreign language. It communicates through movement, not words, and its history lies almost entirely abroad--in Russia, Italy, and France. In <i>Celestial Bodies</i>, dance critic Laura Jacobs makes the foreign familiar, providing a lively, poetic, and uniquely accessible introduction to the world of classical dance. Combining history, interviews with dancers, technical definitions, descriptions of performances, and personal stories, Jacobs offers an intimate and passionate guide to watching ballet and understanding the central elements of choreography.<br /><br />Beautifully written and elegantly illustrated with original drawings, <i>Celestial Bodies</i> is essential reading for all lovers of this magnificent art form.<br /><br />
